Square Payroll Referral Program Terms
Last updated March 22, 2021
This Referral Program (the “Program”) is offered by Square, Inc.’s (“Square”) payroll product (“Square Payroll”). Square Payroll reserves the right to terminate the Program at any time for any reason.
1. HOW IT WORKS.
The Program is by invitation only. A current Square Payroll customer (“Referrer”) will send an email inviting a friend or contact (“Referred User”) to join the program. The email will contain a unique URL for the Referrer to share with the Referred User. It is the Referrer’s responsibility to communicate precisely the unique URL address as received, without any typos or other mistakes, to each Referred User. There is no limit to the number of people the Referrer can refer using the URL. To qualify for a reward, the Referred User must be new to Square Payroll. The qualified Referred User must use the unique URL and follow the on-screen prompts to sign up for Square Payroll. A Referrer will only receive a unique referral URL once they have sent a payrun.
A Referrer must have received the unique URL from Square in order to participate in the Program.
Eligibility for the Limited Time Promotion is available to invited Square Payroll employers.
Eligibility for the Standard Reward is available to invited Square Payroll employers as well as any employees, contractors, and accountants over the age of 18.
Square reserves the right, at any time or for any reason, to invite, accept, suspend, or terminate anyone that wishes to participate, or is participating, in the Program.
3. QUALIFYING REFERRED USER.
Limited Time Promotions: In addition to the Standard Reward below, each such qualified Referred User will receive a one hundred dollar ($100) Amazon.com gift code when they send their first payrun to W-2 employees by February 28, 2021. These rewards are subject to change at Square Payroll’s sole discretion at any time and for any reason. After the expiration of these limited time promotions, only the standard reward below will apply.
Standard Reward: Each qualified Referred User shall receive their first month of Square Payroll for free. An eligible Referrer will receive a one hundred dollar ($100) Amazon.com gift code when a qualified Referred User referred by such Referrer sends their first payrun to W-2 employees. For the avoidance of doubt, a payrun sent to independent contractors only is not an eligible payrun for purposes of the Program. Square Payroll will email the reward to the Referrer in the form of an electronic gift code valid for $100 in purchases on Amazon.com. Rewards may be changed at Square Payroll’s sole discretion at any time and for any reason. Once a Referrer receives rewards under the Program valued at $500, Referrer must provide Square Payroll with a completed Form W-9 so that Square Payroll can timely file a 1099-NEC on Referrer’s behalf. Referrer must provide such information in order to continue receiving referrer incentives under the Program. Square Payroll may withhold a Reward for investigation, or refuse to process any transaction it deems fraudulent, suspicious, or in violation of these Program Terms, or if Square Payroll believes it will impose an undue liability on it, its subsidiaries, affiliates or any of their respective officers, directors, employees, representatives and agents. All of Square Payroll’s decisions are final and binding. Rewards are not transferable and may not be auctioned, traded, bartered or sold.
Referrers may not refer yourself or create multiple, fictitious or fake accounts with Square Payroll or participate in the Program as a Referred User. No user may use the Program to violate any law, infringe or violate the rights of any third party, or otherwise act in a manner that is deemed harassing, harmful, illegal, hateful, obscene or outside the spirit and intent of the Program. In addition, you may not (i) tamper with the Program, (ii) act in an unfair or disruptive manner, or (iii) use any system, bot or other device or artifice to participate or receive any benefit in the Program.
You may only use the materials provided to you by Square Payroll to promote the Square Payroll products or services to your friends and contacts. You may not use any paid advertisement to promote the Program, including without limitation, paid search marketing, affiliate networks, paid email campaigns and other similar methods. You may not use illegal or otherwise objectionable content in connection with any communications relating to the Program.
7. NO SPAM.
You, and not Square Payroll, are the actual sender of the emails to Referred User and must comply with applicable law. Referrals must be created and distributed in a personal manner that is appropriate and customary for communications with friends, colleagues and family members. Bulk email distribution, distribution to strangers, or any other use of the services described herein in a manner that is not promoted is expressly prohibited and may be grounds for immediate termination and further legal action. Square Payroll has no obligation to monitor the Program or any communications. Referrers who do not comply with the law, including anti-spam laws, are obligated to indemnify Square Payroll and its directors, officers, employees, and contractors against any liabilities, costs and expenses it incurs as a results of such bulk email.
8. NO USE OF SQUARE BRANDING.
You may only use Square’s trademarks, logo, or other branding element as part of the marketing materials that Square has sent you.
YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT THE RELEASED PARTIES (DEFINED BELOW) SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, GOODWILL, USE, DATA OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES (EVEN IF SQUARE WAS ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES). By participating in the Program, you agree to defend, indemnify, release and hold harmless Square and its affiliates and subsidiaries, together with their respective employees, directors, officers, licensees, licensors, shareholders, attorneys and agents (collectively, the “Released Parties”), from any and all claims, actions, demands, damages, losses, liabilities, costs or expenses caused by, arising out of, in connection with, or related to the Program (including, without limitation, any property loss, damage, personal injury or death caused to any person(s)) and the awarding, receipt and/or use or misuse of any benefit in the Program. The Released Parties shall not be liable for any technical errors or malfunctions, data theft or corruption, any printing or typographical error, or any damage to any computer system resulting from participating in, or accessing or downloading information in connection with the Program. The Released Parties shall not be liable to any users for failure to supply any advertised benefit, by reason of any acts of God, any action or request by any governmental or quasi-governmental entity (whether or not valid), or any other activity or action that is beyond any of the Released Parties’ control. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT POSSIBLE BY LAW, THE RELEASED PARTIES’ MAXIMUM LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE PROGRAM, REGARDLESS OF THE CAUSE OF ACTION (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, BREACH OF WARRANTY, OR OTHERWISE), WILL NOT EXCEED $20.
