3. How the Program Works

Qualified Referrals. A Qualified Referral occurs when:

  1. The Referrer, a current user of Parallels Toolbox, clicks the Program command in the Parallels Toolbox and shares a Referral Program Link through email, Facebook, or Twitter with a person, the Referred;
  2. The Referred then downloads Parallels Toolbox when they arrive at the Parallels website by clicking the Referral Program link shared by the Referrer; and
  3. When the Referred customer account has purchased a subscription for Parallels Toolbox, the Referrer will receive a referral reward.

Reward. The Referrer will receive a referral award which is equivalent to a 3 months free subscription to Parallels Toolbox. The Referrer will only qualify for a referral award in respect of the first eight users that have been referred to the program by the Referrer and have purchased a subscription for Parallels Toolbox irrespective of the number of Users that the Referrer has referred to the program. The maximum number of months that the Referrer will receive a free subscription to Parallels Toolbox is 24 months. The Reward Program will work as follows:

If the Referrer has an active subscription to Parallels Toolbox, the renewal date will be automatically extended for a period of 3 months.

If the Referrer has an expired paid subscription to Parallels Toolbox or is an active trial user or an expired trial user, the Referrer will receive an activation code via email that will provide the Referrer with a 3 months subscription for Parallels Toolbox.

Eligibility. To be eligible for participation in the Program, the Referrer must be a current user of Parallels Toolbox and either have a paid subscription to Parallels Toolbox at the time the referral is made; or have an active registered trial to Parallels Toolbox at the time the referral is made; or have either an expired paid subscription to Parallels Toolbox or an expired non-anonymous Parallels Toolbox trial at the time the referral is made. Both the Referrer and the Referred must be at least 18 years of age. Parallels reserves the right to find ineligible any Participant in the Program in its sole discretion.

Reward Conditions. 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. Rewards are not transferable and may not be auctioned, traded, bartered or sold. Upon termination of the Program or any portion thereof for any reason, any unredeemed Rewards accumulated by Referrer are forfeited.

Conduct. Participants in the Program must comply with all up-to-date “SPAM” laws. Any distribution of your referral link that could constitute unsolicited commercial email or “spam” under any applicable law or regulation is expressly prohibited and will be grounds for immediate termination of your account and exclusion from Parallels Referral Program. Parallels reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to prohibit any Member from participating in any aspect of the Program if Parallels deems or suspects that such Member has engaged in or has attempted to engage in any of the following:

  2. acting in violation of these Program Terms and Conditions;
