SolarSesame Referral Program Terms & Conditions

SolarSesame reserves the right to both change these Terms and Conditions from time to time and/or to terminate the Referral Program at any time and without prior notice.

The Referral Program is open to individuals who are not customers of SolarSesame i.e. they (i) have not received a fully-executed Customer Agreement with SolarSesame (the “Participant”) countersigned by SolarSesame and (ii) do not have an active complete photovoltaic system designed, engineered, procured, constructed, installed, tested, commissioned, and started-up. Additional eligibility requirements may apply. By submitting the full name and phone number of an individual interested (the “Referee”) in becoming a SolarSesame customer for participation in the Referral Program, each Participant agrees to the Terms and Conditions set forth herein.

SolarSesame reserves the right to modify, limit or restrict participation in the Referral Program to any person at any time for any reason and without notice. Participant eligibility shall be determined by SolarSesame in its sole discretion. A Participant’s time of entry into the Referral Program will be determined by SolarSesame in its sole discretion.

Unless otherwise stated in the applicable Referral Program Guidelines, each Referee must (i) live within a state that SolarSesame services, (ii) own his or her residence, (iii) sign a Customer Agreement with SolarSesame and receive Solar Sesame Sign Off by a specified date, and (iv) be legally capable of entering into contracts (the “Eligibility Requirements”). If a Referee does not meet one or more Eligibility Requirement, the Participant shall not be eligible for a Referral Reward (defined below) for the unqualified Referee.

A Referee may not have been referred to SolarSesame previously, as reflected in Solar Sesame’s records. If a Referee is referred by multiple Participants, the first Participant to submit the Required Information, based on the date and time of the submission (as determined by SolarSesame in its sole discretion) shall be the only Participant entitled to receive a Referral Reward.

A Participant may not refer someone who lives in the same household as the Participant, provided, however, that a Participant may refer himself or herself or someone in his or her household if the Participant has multiple homes and has not previously submitted information for home(s) not subject to a Customer Agreement with Solar Sesame (“Second Home Referee”). Participants who submit Second Home Referees will only receive a Referral Reward with respect to the Second Home Referee’s residence as of the date of the referral.

The Participant shall receive the Referral Reward (Amazon Gift Card or similar) within ninety (90) days from the date that installation has begun on the Referee’s Solar Facility (or as otherwise provided for in the applicable offer), provided that the Referee has paid any upfront and deposit payments associated with the Solar Facility.

Referral Rewards may be taxable, depending on the value of the item and the federal, state, and local tax laws applicable to the Participant. Participants are solely responsible for reporting such items on their tax returns and paying any associated tax liability. If SolarSesame’s delivery of a Referral Reward will require SolarSesame to issue Participant a 1099, SolarSesame’s obligation to make the Referral Reward shall be conditioned upon receipt from Participant of any required tax documentation necessary to issue the 1099.

SolarSesame reserves the right to cancel the eligibility of any Participant or Referee who engages in any fraudulent activity or uses the Referral Program in a matter inconsistent with these Terms and Conditions, or applicable laws, statutes or ordinances. SolarSesame is not responsible for any incorrect or inaccurate information supplied by Participants. By submitting someone as a Referee, a Participant represents that he or she believes that the Referee would benefit from receiving information about SolarSesame and its products and services. No “spamming” is permitted. If SolarSesame believes, in its sole discretion, that a Participant has engaged in fraudulent activity or is “spamming” email accounts or addresses, SolarSesame reserves the right to recover any payments made to such Participant.

The Referral Program and these Terms and Conditions are void where any aspect of the Referral Program is prohibited, taxed or otherwise restricted by law or where registration, bonding, local judging or translation is required. The Referral Program is subject to all national, state, and local laws including applicable tax codes.

SolarSesame shall not be liable for any failure of or delay in relation to the Referral Program for the period that such failure or delay is due to causes beyond its reasonable control, including but not limited to acts of God, war, strikes or labor disputes, embargoes, government orders or any other force majeure event.

By participating in the Referral Program, Participant agrees to resolve any disputes arising from the Referral Program or related to these Terms and Conditions through binding arbitration governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”). The arbitration will be conducted under the rules of JAMS that are in effect at the time of the Referral Program. If there is a conflict between the applicable JAMS Rules and the within Terms and Conditions, the Terms and Conditions will govern.

Subject to these Terms and Conditions, Participant and Referee information submitted pursuant to the Referral Program will be collected and used in accordance with SolarSesame’s Privacy Policy, which can be found here.
