Referral Program Terms and Conditions
1. How the Program Works
“Referrer” shall mean a real person who refers friends.
“Referred Customer” shall mean a real person whose name and email address have been provided to Company by a Referrer.
“User” shall mean (a) any Referrer, and/or (b) any Referred Customer who, upon receiving the Personal Link (defined below) chooses to participate in the Program.
Program Participation Generally
To participate as a Referrer, visit http://www.BabyMiracles.com/referral-program and follow the on-screen instructions to refer your friends, family members, or colleagues to the Site by entering each person’s name and email address in the recipient box (“Referral”). There is no limit to the number of real people you may refer, however, please only refer people who you reasonably believe would want to know about Company.
For every “Qualified Referral” (defined below), a Referrer may be eligible to receive “Referral Reward(s)” (also defined below), provided Referrer is otherwise eligible under, and fully compliant with, the Program Terms.
A User must register to make a referral, but no purchase is required. Once a User refers a friend, family member or colleague, he/she becomes a Referrer and will be provided with a unique referral link (“Personal Link”) that allows the Referrer to be eligible to receive Referral Reward(s) for Qualified Referrals. An invitation will be sent to the Referred Customers and will include the Referrer’s Personal Link. Also, the Referrer making the Referral will receive a copy of the Personal Link that the Referrer may share directly with others.
Company reserves the right to modify or amend these Program Terms and the methods through which Referral Rewards are earned. Company reserves the right to disqualify any User at any time from participation in the Program if such User does not comply with any of the Program Terms.
To be a Referrer, you must be a legal resident of the United States or any other country that permits participation in the Program. In addition, you must be at least 18 years old, and be legally permitted to provide the personal information (e.g., name and email address) of each Referred Customer. Referrers may only refer real persons who meet the requirements of the Program Terms, including being a friend, family member or colleague of the Referrer and who the Referrer reasonably believes would want to receive the benefits of the Program. Referrers may not refer themselves or fictitious persons.
Referred Customers must be real persons and not the Referrer or any person under the legal control of the Referrer. In addition, Referred Customers must be at least 18 years of age or be of an age whereby the Referred Customer is permitted by the laws of his/her residence to enter into a contract for the purchase of goods.
Employees of Program Entities or their subsidiaries, affiliates, or promotional agencies, including immediate family and household members, are not eligible to participate in the Program.
Referral Rewards can only be awarded for Qualified Referrals. A “Qualified Referral” occurs when all the following conditions are met:
Receiving Referral Rewards
The Referrer shall receive one (1) Referral Reward valued toward future purchases on the Site for each valid and verified Qualified Referral generated by that Referrer. The value of the Referral Rewards shall be recorded within the Personal Link that is generated at the time of the Referral. Should Company choose to change the Program and offer a different value/type of Reward, then all new Personal Links generated from Referrals under the new offering shall record the new Referral Reward value. Referral Rewards will be delivered to the Referrer via email after a Qualified Referral.
Using Referral Rewards
A User may use Referral Rewards provided by the Company only on the Site and only for orders not including taxes, shipping charges, and other discounts. In addition, Referral Rewards may not be used to purchase gift cards. Only one Referral Reward may be used per online transaction. Referral Rewards are valid for six (6) months from date of issue.
Gift Card Purchases Do Not Qualify
For clarity, Referral Rewards will not be provided, and may not be used, for purchases of Baby Miracles gift cards from the Site.
All Rewards Subject to Verification
Referral Rewards are subject to verification. Program Entities may withhold a Referral Reward for investigation or refuse to process any transaction that Company deems fraudulent, suspicious, in violation of the Program Terms, or believes will impose liability on Company, its subsidiaries, affiliates, or any of their respective officers, directors, employees, representatives, and agents.

The Program Entities shall not be liable to any Users for failure to supply any Referral Reward or any part thereof, by reason of any acts of God, any action(s), regulation(s), order(s) or request(s) by any governmental or quasi-governmental entity (whether or not the action(s), regulations(s), order(s) or request(s) prove(s) to be invalid), equipment failure, threatened terrorist acts, terrorist acts, air raid, blackout, act of public enemy, earthquake, tornado, tsunami, war (declared or undeclared), fire, flood, epidemic, explosion, unusually severe weather, hurricane, embargo, labor dispute or strike (whether legal or illegal), labor or material shortage, transportation interruption of any kind, work slow-down, civil disturbance, insurrection, riot, or any other cause beyond the Program Entities’ control.
