How does it work?
GuruFocus Referral Program Rules
1. Who is eligible to be a referrer?
Any GuruFocus account holder can become a referrer.
2. Who is eligible to become a referee?
Your friends or social media followers may be eligible to be referees. To receive a free one-month Gurufocus Premium Membership, the person you refer must sign up for a paid plan on GuruFocus. In addition, your referee must be a new GuruFocus user and can’t have more than one account.
3. How can I use my referral link?
GuruFocus wants you to share the referral link and earn a one-month Premium Membership, but you must agree that you will not:
Try to get referees by spamming, bulk emailing or sending large numbers of unsolicited emails. The only people you should be contacting are people you know personally;
Use, display or manipulate GuruFocus’ intellectual property (such as GuruFocus logos, trademarks and copyright-protected works) in any way, except as to identify yourself as a GuruFocus user or a GuruFocus referrer;
Create or register any (i) businesses, (ii) URLs, (iii) domain names, (iv) software application names or titles, or (v) social media handles or profiles that include the word "GuruFocus" or any of GuruFocus' other trademarks or any words that are confusingly similar to GuruFocus trademarks.
Purchase keywords (including, but not limited to Google AdWords) that contain any of GuruFocus trademarks;
Use automated systems or bots through any channel to distribute, post or otherwise share your referral link;
Use scripts or programmed/automatic dialers to send invitations or otherwise share your referral link;
Make misleading claims about GuruFocus, post offensive/abusive content, create fake websites/webpages/social media profiles/apps, misrepresent your connection to GuruFocus, or otherwise make any false or misleading statements to get a referee to use your link;
Use your referral link in any manner that violates the law or GuruFocus rules.
4. How do I earn GuruFocus Premium Membership?
Referrers are rewarded with one month of Premium Membership for inviting new users that purchase GuruFocus subscriptions. As long as you and your referee follow these rules, as well as GuruFocus' posted policies, you should receive your one-month Premium Membership after your referee uses your link to sign up with GuruFocus and makes their payment after the 7-day free trial period. As a result, both referrer and referee receive one month free of GuruFocus’ Premium Membership subscription. To receive the Premium Membership for referring someone who signs up for a paid plan on GuruFocus, your referee must be a new GuruFocus user.
If the referee files a chargeback or claims a refund for their paid subscription, the reward that you and your referee both received from GuruFocus will be canceled.
5. Termination and changes
GuruFocus reserves the right to change, end or pause, in whole or in part, any referral program, as well as any referrer’s or referee's ability to participate in any referral program or receive GuruFocus Premium Membership at any time for any reason, including suspected fraud (including by either the referrer and/or referee), abuse or any violation of these rules.
