1. This Refer a Friend scheme is only open to United Kingdom residents aged 18 or over, excluding employees of RIFT, their associated companies, agents, third parties or anyone else professionally connected with this scheme. Proof of employment may be required.

  2. By entering the Refer a Friend scheme you (the “referrer”) agree to be bound by these terms and conditions.

  3. It is not necessary for referrers to have completed a filed claim with RIFT to enter. Registering as a referrer with RIFT is required, in order to receive a unique reference number and link via which referrals can be made.

  4. How to Enter: The referrer must either directly enter the contact name and email address of their friend or colleague into the RIFT Refer a Friend website page, including the referrer’s unique reference number, or call 01233 628648 and provide the contact details.

  5. Referrers should use the unique link provided to them via email to the Refer a Friend page.

  6. The Reward: Eligible referrers will receive a cheque payment of £50 for each new person they refer to RIFT who within the qualifying period files a tax refund claim.

  7. The person referred must be a new contact. If they are already a RIFT contact, no referral payment will be made. If the same person is referred to RIFT by two different referrers, any subsequent referrer’s payment will be made to the referrer who made the first referral, as recorded by RIFT.

  8. Referrers who refer 5 (five) people to RIFT within the qualifying period who each file a tax refund claim will receive a bonus payment of £150 in addition to the £50 payment relating to each person who filed a claim. The £150 payment will be made when the 5th claim is filed resulting from a referral made.

  9. Payment qualifying period: Referral payments will be made in relation to claims filed by the person referred within two weeks of the tax return being filed. Claims are typically filed within 4-6 weeks of confirmation that a claim is due, but this is not guaranteed.

  10. All referrer cheque payments will be posted to the referrer at the address given at the time when the referrer registered with RIFT. It is the responsibility of the referrer to inform RIFT of any subsequent change of address. Failure to do so may result in the loss of payments posted to an outdated address. In such instances, RIFT does not accept responsibility for the loss of referrer payment, and it is at the discretion of RIFT as to whether a further cheque will be sent to a new address.

  11. Claimants must agree to these Terms & Conditions in order to be eligible for referral payments linked to the Refer a Friend. Registration with RIFT and use of the Refer a Friend page on our website is considered acceptance of these Terms & Conditions.

  12. RIFT reserves the right at its absolute discretion to disqualify referrers whom it considers do not comply with these terms and conditions.

  13. RIFT shall have the right, where necessary, to undertake all such action as is reasonable to protect itself against fraudulent or invalid claims including, without limitation, to require further verification as to the identity, age, and other relevant details of a claimant.

  14. Bulk applications made from trade, consumer groups or third parties will not be accepted. Incomplete or illegible applications, by or via third parties or syndicates, applications by macros or other automated means (including systems which can be programmed to apply), and entries which do not satisfy the requirements of these terms and conditions in full will be disqualified and will not be counted. If it becomes apparent that a referrer is using a computer(s) to circumvent this condition by, for example, the use of ‘script’, ‘brute force’, masking their identity by manipulating IP addresses, using identities other than their own or any other automated means in order to increase that referrals in a way that is not consistent with the spirit of the Refer a Friend, that person’s referrals will be disqualified and any reward payment will be void.

  15. RIFT’s decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.

  16. RIFT will only use the personal details supplied by the referrer for the administration of the Refer a Friend scheme and for no other purpose, unless we have the referred person’s consent. RIFT may disclose personal information relating to referrers and persons referred to its agents to assist in conducting this promotion or communicating with participants. See our privacy policy at http://riftrefunds.co.uk/privacy-and-cookies. The participant may withdraw consent to such use of personal information by writing to RIFT.
