These Terms and Conditions (collectively, the “Agreement”) sets forth the terms and conditions between Greater Nevada Credit Union (the “GNCU”) and users (“you” or “your”) and governs your use of GNCU’s Refer Family and Friends Program (“Program”) and the related website and portal (collectively, the “Site”).

BY ENTERING, ACCESSING, BROWSING, SUBMITTING INFORMATION TO, USING THE PROGRAM, OR OTHERWISE USING THE SITE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS. 

GNCU reserves the right to modify or supplement any or all of the terms of this Agreement from time to time without notice to you.  All changes are effective immediately when posted and apply to all access to and use of the Program or the Site thereafter. GNCU reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to restrict, change suspend or terminate access to all or any part or aspect of the Site or Program, including, without limitation, (i) availability of any feature or content, (ii) restricting, suspending, modifying, or terminating the Program, and (iii) limiting the number of Bonuses (defined below) that may be received per Member (defined below) or per household, at any time and without prior notice or liability.  Continued use of the Site or Program following posting of any changes to the terms of the Agreement constitutes your acceptance of the changes.  If you do not agree with the terms of this Agreement at any time, you are required to cease use of the Site and Program. 

GNCU’s privacy policy, available at https://www.gncu.org/Privacy-Policy-Disclosures (“Privacy Policy”), describes how GNCU may use your personal information. Your acceptance of this Agreement constitutes your acceptance of the Privacy Policy, which is incorporated herein by this reference.  If you object to your personal information being used as described in the Privacy Policy, please do not use or access the Site. 

1. Your Information and Account. 

By using the Site and Program, you represent that you are at least 18 years of age, or at least the age of legal majority in your state or country of residence, if older than 18. 

To use portions of the Site and to use the Program, you may be required to provide certain personal information, including, without limitation, banking account information and personal data such as your name, email, phone number, and address and the same information for the Referred Person (defined below).  You agree to provide information that is true, accurate, complete, current, and not misleading. 

2. The Program. 

a) Qualifications. To qualify for the Bonus under the Program, you must refer a person who is not a member of GNCU (a “Member”) and is either (1) an immediate family member of a person who is eligible to become a Member; or (2) friends or family who live or work in Nevada, who is eligible to become a Member (each, a “Referred Person”). Referred Persons must satisfy GNCU’s Membership eligibility policy and may not have been a Member previously. Referred Persons may not be an employee of GNCU. GNCU’s Membership eligibility policy is available at https://www.gncu.org/About-Us/Join and may change from time to time.

b) Referral. To refer a Referred Person, you must register with the Greater Nevada Referral Program via https://gncu.ourreferralengine.com/v2/1/register and follow all of the applicable steps detailed therein (the “Referral Steps”).

c) Bonus. You and the Referred Person will each receive a $25 bonus (the “Bonus”), if, after you have completed all of the Referral Steps:

i. the Referred Person establishes a new Shared Savings and Checking Account with GNCU;

ii. the Referred Person’s Shared Savings and Checking Account remain open for at least 60 days after the accounts are opened; and

iii. both the Referred Person’s Shared Savings and Checking Account and your Shared Savings account are in good standing at the end of the 60 day period.

If all of the criteria set forth in this Section 2(c) are met, GNCU will deposit the Bonus into your Shared Savings account and the Referred Person’s Shared Savings account within 30 days after the end of the 60 day period.  

If the Referred Person’s account is in good standing at the end of the 60 day period, but your accounts are not, the Referred Person will receive the Bonus and you will not receive the Bonus. If the Referred Person’s accounts are not in good standing at the end of the 60 day period, neither you nor the Referred Person will receive a Bonus.

d) Accounts. The Referred Person must establish both a Shared Savings and Checking Account, but may also establish any other account available at GNCU, if they qualify. Shared Savings accounts require a $5.00 application fee and must maintain a minimum balance of $5.00. Checking accounts require no minimum deposit and must maintain a positive balance. Application fees and minimum balance are subject to change.

e) Non-commercial Use. You understand the Program is intended for your personal, non-commercial use and you agree you will only use the Program for your personal, non-commercial use.   

f) Other Promotions. The Bonus may not be combined with and is not valid with any other offers and promotions.

Termination; Modification.  You may terminate this Agreement, with or without cause and at any time, by discontinuing your use of the Site and Program.  In addition to any other rights contained in this Agreement, GNCU may, without notice, suspend your access to the Site or Program or terminate this Agreement for: (a) your failure to comply with any provisions of this Agreement; or (b) your unauthorized or unlawful use of the Site. Upon termination of this Agreement for any reason, GNCU shall have no continuing obligation to you. 

4. Taxes.  GNCU is not responsible for any taxes that are or may become due and payable as a result of any Bonus, including without limitation any federal, state or local income taxes. You and the Referred Person are and will remain responsible for any such taxes, respectively.
