Terms and Conditions
Healthy Paws Pet Insurance Referral Program
Refer-A-Friend Terms and Conditions
By participating in the Healthy Paws Pet Insurance LLC (“Healthy Paws,” “Company”) Refer a Friend program (“Program”), you agree to receive communications from Healthy Paws with regards to your participation. The following Terms & Conditions shall apply to participation in the Program:
How the Program Works.
To participate, visit the Refer a Friend web page and follow the on-screen instructions to refer friends, family members or colleagues to Healthy Paws by entering their names and email addresses in the “Refer a Friend” box or by sharing through Facebook and Twitter.
Users who refer are called “Referrers.” Individuals who receive a referral are called “Referred Friends.” An “eligible” Referrer who is fully compliant with these Terms & Conditions may qualify for “Donation(s)” for every “Completed Referral.”
To be "eligible," a Referrer must:
be a legal resident of the United States of America; and
be at least 18 years old; and
be a resident of a state where the Program is not prohibited by applicable law or regulation.
Making a Referral
Once an individual refers a friend, family member, or colleague, that individual becomes a Referrer and will be provided with a unique referral link (“Personal Link”) that allows the Referrer to receive a donation credit for a Completed Referral (“Donation Credit”). Personal Links are only issued to individuals.
Referrers must respect the spirit and rules of the Program by only referring real individuals who meet the requirements of these Terms & Conditions. Referrers cannot refer themselves. For example, a Referrer may not create multiple or fake accounts with Healthy Paws or participate in the Program using multiple or fake email addresses or identities. Referrers may not participate in the Program where doing so would be prohibited by any applicable law. Referrers may not use Spam to obtain referrals (See the section below Bulk Referrals – “Spam” for more details), or through message board postings, where the postings are unrelated to the topic of discussion or otherwise violate the terms of the site.
A Completed Referral means that all the following conditions are met:
The Referred Friend completed the Healthy Paws online application process (“Completed Submitted Application”) using the Referrer’s “Personal Link,” or provides the Referrer’s policy number or full name while completing the application process by phone. A Completed Submitted Application is defined as a person that receives a pet insurance quote and completes the application information including all required pet underwriting information.
If a Referred Friend completes the application process with Healthy Paws using any other link or method other than what is defined above, the registration will not count as a Completed Referral and the Referrer will not earn a Donation Credit;
The Referred Friend is not currently or previously a customer with Healthy Paws
The Referred Friend is a) a legal resident of the United States of America and b) at least 18 years old; and
Only one Completed Referral qualifies for a Donation Credit for each Referred Friend.
You may not participate in the Program where doing so would be prohibited by any applicable law or regulations.
Credit for Completed Referrals
Donation Credit can only be awarded for Completed Referrals.
Earning Donations Credits
Referrer shall receive one (1) Donation Credit valued at $25 that is directly donated to the Healthy Paws Foundation for each verified Completed Referral generated by Referrer.
Healthy Paws Foundation may then utilize that donation to further donate to animal rescue and shelters as per Healthy Paws Foundation's sole discretion. Check your Healthy Paws Refer a Friend account for details. Restrictions may apply.
Verified Completed Referrals
Donation Credits are subject to verification. The Company may delay a Donation Credit for the purposes of investigation. It may also refuse to verify and process any transaction Company deems, in its sole discretion, to be fraudulent, suspicious, in violation of these Terms & Conditions, or likely to impose potential liability on Company, its subsidiaries, affiliates, or any of their respective officers, directors, employees, representatives, and agents.
All of the Company's decisions are final and binding, including decisions as to whether a Completed Referral or Donation Credit is verified.
Transfer and Value of Donation Credits
Donation Credits 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 Donation Credits accumulated by the Referrer may be forfeited.
Individuals may participate in the Program to recommend Healthy Paws or content made available by Company to their friends, family or colleagues ("Users"). To do this, Users must necessarily submit personal information about themselves and their friends, family members or colleagues, such as name and e-mail address information, so that the Company can send these recommendations on their behalf. The personal information will be collected, processed and used in accordance with Company’s Privacy Statement, which can be found at https://www.healthypawspetinsurance.com/privacypolicy.
In addition, personal information may be used by Company to contact Users with regards to their participation in the Program and to receive communications from Company. Where a User provides personal information about its friends, family members or colleagues to receive communications via the Program, the provided personal information will be used by the Company for sending these communications on behalf of the User and User understands that Company may send out additional follow-up communications on behalf of the User to encourage or remind the friends, family members or colleagues to complete the purchase or registration process.

Bulk Distribution (“Spam”)
If a Referrer provides a Personal Link to a Referred Friend by email, the email must be created and distributed in a personal manner that is appropriate and customary for communications with friends, colleagues, and family members. By submitting the email addresses, the Referrer represents that he/she has the prior consent of a Referred Friend to submit their email address.
Bulk email distribution, distribution to strangers, or any other promotion of a Personal Link in a manner that would constitute or appear to constitute unsolicited commercial email or “spam” in the Company's sole discretion is expressly prohibited and may be grounds for immediate termination of the Referrer’s account and deactivation of the Personal Link. We have a no tolerance spam policy.
The Company has no obligation to monitor the content provided by Users; however, the Company may choose to do so and block any email messages, remove any such content, or prohibit any use of the Program.
Each Referrer is the actual sender of the emails and must comply with applicable law. Referrers who do not comply with the law, including anti-spam laws, are obligated to indemnify the Company and Program vendors against any liabilities, costs, and expenses it incurs as a result of such spam.
Fraudulent and Suspicious Behavior
The Company may prohibit a User from participating in the Program or receiving a Donation Credit, in their sole discretion, if they determine such User is attempting to undermine the fairness, integrity or legitimate operation of the Program in any way by cheating, hacking, deception, or any other unfair playing practices of intending to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other users or representatives of the Company.
Use of any automated system, script, or macro to participate is strictly prohibited and will result in disqualification.
Users may not enter with multiple or fake emails addresses or accounts, use fictitious identities or use any system, bot or other device or artifice to participate in the Program or receive a Donation Credit.
The Company reserves the right to disqualify any User and/or cancel any Donation Credits(s) if they find a User to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Program or violating these Terms and Conditions.
CAUTION: ANY ATTEMPT TO DELIBERATELY DAMAGE OR UNDERMINE THE LEGITIMATE OPERATION OF THE PROGRAM MAY BE IN VIOLATION OF CRIMINAL AND CIVIL LAWS AND WILL RESULT IN DISQUALIFICATION FROM PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAM. SHOULD SUCH AN ATTEMPT BE MADE, THE COMPANY RESERVES THE RIGHT TO SEEK REMEDIES AND DAMAGES (INCLUDING ATTORNEY FEES) TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW, INCLUDING CRIMINAL PROSECUTION.

We reserve the right to disqualify you at any time from participation in the Program if you do not comply with any of these terms and conditions.
