These Refer-A-Friend Program Terms (the “Referral Terms”) apply to the Persona Refer-A-Friend Program described on the Program Website, as defined below (“Referral Program” or “Program”). Vitamin Packs Inc. dba Persona Nutrition (“Persona,” the “Company,” “we,” or “our”) offers the Referral Program to consumers who purchase Persona products on our e-commerce site (www.personanutrition.com) and are interested in qualifying for bonuses by referring friends to try Persona products.
By participating in the Referral Program, Users (defined below) are bound by these Referral Terms and agree to use the Program in the manner specified in these Referral Terms. If you do not agree to these Referral Terms in their entirety, then you are not authorized to register as a Referrer (defined below) or to participate in the Referral Program in any manner. Users may not participate in the Program where doing so would be prohibited by any applicable law or regulation(s). All of the Company’s decisions are final and binding.
No part of the Referral Program is directed to persons under eighteen (18) years of age. If you are under 18 years of age, please do not use or access the Referral Program at any time or in any manner.
To participate, visit https://www.personanutrition.com/refer/ (the “Program Website”) and follow the on screen instructions to refer friends, family members, or colleagues. Once an individual makes a referral, he or she becomes a “Referrer” and will be provided with a unique referral link (“Personal Link”) that allows him/her to receive the benefit or reward advertised on the Program Website. Referred friends (“Friends”) must complete the referral as described in the referral message. “Users” (or “you”) refers to both “Referrers” and “Friends.” An “eligible” Referrer is one who is fully compliant with these Referral Terms. Each User may receive the specified reward only for each Qualified Referral based on their status as a Referrer or Friend. To be eligible as a “User,” you must (1) be at least 18 years of age; (2) be a legal resident of the United States of America; (3) not be a health care professional (or working on behalf of one); (4) not be an employee of the Company, its Service Provider or any of its or their subsidiaries, affiliates or promotional agencies, including immediate family and household members; and (5) comply with these Referral Terms and all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations. A Referrer must already have been a Persona customer at the time such Referrer makes the referral. Further, to be a valid Qualified Referral (defined below), the Friend must complete the purchase or registration process using the Referrer’s Personal Link, and the Friend cannot have been previously registered with the Company as a customer or on the Company’s mailing lists under any other email or alias.
For avoidance of doubt, a “Qualified Referral” means that all the following conditions are met:
Referrers cannot refer themselves, create multiple, fictitious, or fake accounts with the Company, or participate in the Referral Program as “Friends.” No User may use the Referral Program to violate any law, infringe or violate the rights of any third party, or otherwise act in a manner that is deemed harassing, harmful, illegal, hateful, obscene, or outside the spirit and intent of the Referral Program. In addition, you may not (i) tamper with the Referral Program; (ii) act in an unfair or disruptive manner; or (iii) use any system, bot, or other device or artifice to participate or receive any benefit under the Referral Program. CAUTION: ANY ATTEMPT TO DELIBERATELY DAMAGE OR UNDERMINE THE LEGITIMATE OPERATION OF THE REFERRAL PROGRAM MAY BE IN VIOLATION OF CRIMINAL AND CIVIL LAWS. 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.
The referral offer is valid only for intended email recipients and cannot be combined with additional offers when available. Terms, conditions, features, availability, exclusions, pricing, fees, service, and support options are subject to change without notice.
PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU MUST TELL YOUR FRIENDS THAT YOU ARE ELIGIBLE TO RECEIVE A REWARD IF THEY MAKE A QUALIFYING PURCHASE. If you do not do so, it is a violation of these Referral Terms and may result in your immediate termination from the Referral Program, disqualification from future participation, and forfeiture of any reward(s) owed to you as a result of your participation in this Referral Program.
For each verified Qualified Referral, the Referrer will receive one (1) reward in the form and value determined by the Company as advertised on the Program Website, and the Friend will receive a Referral Program discount of 60% off their first full price order (up to a pre-discount application value of $500 USD (i.e., a maximum value of $250 USD)) completed using the Referrer’s Personal Link. Rewards may be redeemed in various forms in the Company’s sole discretion, including, but not limited to, in the form of a gift card for a major retailer or a Persona credit that can be applied to the Referrer’s order. Restrictions may apply. For example, if the reward is in the form of a gift card, it may be subject to the card issuer’s terms and conditions. These rewards will be automatically applied each month (with up to a 5-business day waiting period).
For clarity, in order to receive the rewards described above, the Friend’s first order must be a minimum of $125 USD before the Referral Program discount of 60% mentioned above. The Friend must use the Referral Program discount within one (1) year of receipt of the referral offer or it will expire and be forfeited. A Friend can only receive one such discount reward and cannot receive multiple such rewards from multiple Referrers. The referral offer to the Friend requires the purchase of merchandise only and does not apply to the purchase of online gift certificates, gift boxing, taxes, discounts, chargebacks, returns, fraudulent payments, third-party fees, and shipping and handling charges. The Referrer can earn a maximum of ten (10) rewards per calendar year (i.e., up to $250 USD in value). The Referrer must use gift cards received as rewards in accordance with any terms of the card issuer (and the reward is subject to those terms). Gift cards received as rewards may have expiration dates. Rewards may only be used for domestic purchases. The Company may at times offer different value amounts under this Program for a limited period. The recipient of any reward is responsible for any taxes or other obligations related to receiving such reward.
All rewards are subject to verification. The Company may delay a reward for the purposes of investigation. The Company may also refuse to verify and process any transaction for any reason. All of the Company’s decisions are final and binding, including decisions as to whether a Qualified Referral, or reward is verified. Unless otherwise stated, rewards have no monetary value and may not be redeemed for cash. Rewards are not transferable and may not be auctioned, traded, bartered, or sold. Once you end your subscription with Company, you forfeit all remaining rewards and potential rewards (if any) associated with your Account.
Your Personal Link may be shared only via SMS, personal email, Facebook, or Twitter using the share experience on www.personanutrition.com referral and https://www.personanutrition.com/refer/. It cannot be posted on any other public forums. Such use must comply with the terms and conditions of the third-party site on which the referral Personal Link is used.
You must include a disclosure statement within any websites, pages, blogs/posts, or social media posts where the Personal Link is posted. This disclosure statement must be clear and concise and state that we are compensating you for your participation in the Referral Program. In addition:
For more information about FTC disclosure requirements, please review the FTC’s “Dot Com Disclosures” Guidelines available at www.ftc.gov/os/2013/03/130312dotcomdisclosures.pdf; and the FTC’s Endorsement Guidelines available at business.ftc.gov/advertising-and-marketing/endorsements.
If a Referrer unsubscribes from receiving Program transactional emails or general marketing emails from the Company, he or she will no longer be able to access previously issued rewards, which shall be forfeited. If a Friend is on the Company’s email unsubscribe list, the referral email will not be sent. If a Friend unsubscribes from receiving Program transactional emails or general marketing emails from the Company prior to completing the registration/purchase step noted below, the Referrer will not receive a reward for the referral.

Each Referrer is the actual sender of the emails and must comply with applicable law. Referrals must be created and distributed in a personal manner that is appropriate and customary for communications with friends, colleagues, and family members. By submitting any email address as part of the Referral Program, the Referrer represents that he or she has the appropriate permission and consent. Bulk email distribution, distribution to strangers, or any other use of the services described herein in a manner that is not promoted is expressly prohibited and may be grounds for immediate termination and further legal action. The Company has no obligation to monitor the Referral Program or any communications; however, the Company may choose to do so and block any email messages, remove any such content, or prohibit any use of the Referral Program. Referrers who do not comply with the law, including anti-spam laws, are obligated to indemnify the Referral Program Entities against any liabilities, costs, and expenses it incurs as a result of such spam.
Users are responsible for maintaining the confidentially of any sign-in credentials and are fully responsible for all activities that occur through the use of such credentials.

We reserve the right to cancel, modify, or terminate the Referral Program at any time for any reason, as well as the methods through which rewards are earned and the type or value of rewards. We reserve the right to disqualify any User at any time from participation in the Referral Program if he or she does not comply with any of these Referral Terms.
Section 4 of the Terms & Conditions at https://www.personanutrition.com/term-conditions.cfm shall apply as if fully incorporated herein.
These Referral Terms constitute the entire agreement between Users and the Company concerning Users’ participation and use of the Program. The failure of the Company to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Referral Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Referral Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Referral Terms remain in full force and effect. A person who is not a party to these Referral Terms shall have no right to enforce or receive the benefit of any of these Referral Terms.
