1. Partnership Program
The Partnership Program is run by HeyGroup to spread the word about using the App, driving sign-ups with the goal of making it easier for groups to get together in real life. From time to time HeyGroup will contact you to take part in campaigns it’s planning to run and if you choose to take part you will receive the compensation for fulfilling the deliverables under the campaign timeline. Each offer for you to take part in a campaign will include details of the deliverables, completion timeline, and related compensation if you choose to take part.
For your participation in HeyGroup’s Partnership Program You will receive the compensation detailed as follows: After You have reached the minimum of 25 sign ups* based on referrals, You have given to HeyGroup using the Partnership’s unique specified Referral Code**, HeyGroup will pay based on the following tiers:
25 Sign Ups $125
50 Sign Ups: + $125, making $250 total
75 Sign Ups: + $125, making $375 total
100 Sign Ups: + $125, making $500 total
Payment will be made via a prepaid debit card within 30 days after a tier is reached. You will continue to receive a $125 prepaid debit card for every incremental tier You achieve. For example, You might have 25 MAU after 4 weeks and will receive $125, then 6 weeks later You might have 50 MAU, at that time we will send You another $125 and so on. The Agreement expires three (3) months after sign up. The maximum that will be paid as part of this Agreement is $500, irrespective of how many users You have referred or how long such users have remained on the HeyGroup App.
*A Sign Up is a person that creates an account on the app using your Referral Code, and either creates a group or joins a group. We reserve the right to only pay for real users and not bots or users gaming the system in some way Note: a Sign Up cannot be claimed by two different Partners.
