1. Terms and Conditions
The Fast ForWord Home Referral Program (“Program”) offered by Scientific Learning Corporation (“SLC”) has been created to reward you, our loyal Customers, (“you,” “Member,” “Referrer,” “Participant”) for doing what you already do – recommending us to friends and family who sign on to be SLC customers (“Participants” or “Referred”). It was also created to reward your friends and family for listening to your great advice in referring us, by offering them a reward for signing up at your referral! The following Fast ForWord Home Referral Program Terms and Conditions (“Program Terms and Conditions”) contain important information about our program, so please read them carefully. These Program Terms and Conditions are a binding agreement between you and SLC and will govern your participation in any and all Program offers. By participating in the Program, you agree to the program Terms and Conditions. You are not authorized to participate in the Program, if you do not agree to these Program Terms and Conditions in their entirety.
SLC reserves the right to modify these Program Terms and Conditions at any time, at its sole discretion, and without notice to you. Participation in the Program is considered acceptance of Program Terms and Conditions and any modifications which might be made. SLC may also, in its sole discretion, change, cancel, suspend, or modify any aspect of the Program without notice. SLC also reserves the right to disqualify any customers or prospective customers at any time from participation in the Program.
2. How the Program Works
Qualified Referrals. A Qualified Referral occurs when:
i. The Referrer, a current or previous customer of SLC, clicks the Program link on the Fast ForWord Home site (www.fastforwordhome.com, the "Site") and shares a Referral Program Link through email, Facebook, or Twitter with a person, the Referred;
ii. The Referred then purchases a four month plan when they arrive at the Referrer SLC website by clicking the Referral Program link shared by the Referrer and calling a Fast ForWord Home account manager to complete their purchase.
Eligibility. To be eligible for participation in the Program, the Referrer must be a current or previous customer of SLC. Both the Referrer and the Referred must be at least 18 years of age.
