Last Updated: July 23, 2019

These are the Terms and Conditions of the Referral Program operated by Plutus Financial, Inc. d/b/a Abra, which is referred to in these Terms as “Abra”, “we” or “us”.

Eligibility and Agreement. If you use our Referral Program, these Terms apply. If you do not agree to these Terms, you must not use our Referral Program. If you use our Referral Program, you agree to do so in compliance with these Terms and with applicable laws and regulations.

Changes to These Terms. We may make changes to these Terms, including when there are changes in our Referral Program, technology, regulation or for other reasons. If we do, we will provide you with notice of such changes by posting the updated Terms on our website and changing the “Last Updated” date above. Any amended Terms will become effective no earlier than 5 days after they are posted and apply prospectively to use of the Referral Program after such changes become effective, except that changes addressing new functions of the Referral Program or changes made for legal reasons will be effective immediately. Your continued use of the Referral Program following the effective date of such changes will constitute your acceptance of such changes. If you do not agree to any amended Terms, you must discontinue using the Services.

You must be 18 years of age and older.  Employees of Booking Holdings Inc. and its affiliates, as well as participants (including their representatives and staff members) in the Abra Affiliate Partner Program, are excluded from participation. All Referrers must be natural persons.

You agree that Abra, in its sole discretion, may suspend or terminate your participation in the Referral Program if Abra believes that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of these terms.  Any suspected fraudulent, abusive or illegal activity may be grounds for termination of your participation in the Referral Program. Abra may also in its sole discretion and at any time discontinue providing the Referral Program, or any part thereof, with or without notice.

Referral Fee

Unless otherwise agreed upon, by us, in writing, you will be entitled to earn a referral fee payable in USD or Bitcoin, [as determined by Abra in our sole discretion] for each new user wallet registered through your referral link that either (i) links their Abra wallet to an approved bank account and deposits a certain minimum in funds within 90 days, as communicated by Abra to you on a campaign-by-campaign basis; (ii) deposits a certain minimum in Bitcoin (or other currency) into their Abra wallet within 90 days as communicated by Abra to you on a campaign-by-campaign basis,; or (iii) otherwise meets the conditions communicated by Abra to you on a campaign-by-campaign basis.  The amount of the referral fee will be communicated to you on a campaign-by-campaign basis by Abra. Abra shall pay the referral fee to you within seven (10) business days after the occurrence of either (i) or (ii).

You are limited to twenty (20) referrals in any one calendar year. We may impose additional restrictions on the number of referrals for which you can earn a referral fee. Any such restrictions will be communicated to you on a campaign-by-campaign basis. You may not create additional wallets for purposes of earning additional referral fees.

Display of Referral Links

You will not share or publish your referral link in a manner that would be in violation of applicable anti-spam laws or where there is no reasonable basis for believing that recipients would be interested in joining the Abra platform. You will indemnify and hold Abra, its directors, officers, employees, shareholders, agents and successors harmless, from and against any claims that may arise from any unlawful forwarding or sharing of the referral link.
