ELIGIBILITY:

1.      Overview.

A.     WebEx Communications, Inc., a Delaware corporation ("WebEx"), operates Meeting Center, Sales Center, Event Center, Training Center, Support Center, and other qualifying services specified by WebEx (collectively, the "WebEx Services").  As part of the WebEx Services, WebEx offers the WebEx Referral Program ("Program"), through which certain, qualified, current customers of the WebEx Services, in good standing, that receive an invitation from WebEx to participate in the Program ("Referral Customers") are granted a limited, non-exclusive right to promote the WebEx Services in a manner in compliance with this Agreement.  This Agreement provides terms and conditions applicable to the Referral Customers’ membership in the Program.

B.     Referral Customers are offered the opportunity to earn a commission for referring unique customers that enter into a "Transaction" as set forth below.   The definition of a Transaction and the commissions that may be earned by Referral Customers through the Program involve a Referral Customer providing WebEx with the first name, last name, company, phone and email information on a colleague that the Referral Customer believes would be interested in using WebEx Services "Referred Colleague").  Such information of a Referred Colleague shall be provided using the "WRP Form" found at www.webex.com/go/referral.   At the time of submission of the WRP Form, the Referred Colleague shall not be a current WebEx customer and must not have been referred to WebEx by any other source.   Each Referred Colleague registered must be accepted by WebEx, at WebEx's sole discretion.   A Referred Colleague must enter into an agreement to acquire the WebEx Services from WebEx directly (not from a third party) within ninety (90) days from WebEx’s receipt of the WRP Form, the WebEx Services acquired must be for a minimum term of one (1) year for a minimum of five (5) named users, and the Referred Colleague must pay WebEx for the first month of WebEx Services.

C.     The commission to a Referral Customer shall be as follows.   For each Transaction, WebEx will credit (up to) $500 towards such Referral Customers’ next invoice.  The specific commission for a Transaction is as follows:

 

Monthly recurring revenue (MRR) received by WebEx from the Referred Colleague: Commission to Referral Customer
$1 - $300 $250
> $300 $500

To receive such commission, the Referral Customer must be in good financial standing with WebEx.  In no event shall such credit be issued to a Referral Customer until all outstanding invoices to WebEx have been paid in full.  Credits shall not be used by a Referral Customer to offset payments due to WebEx for services previously provided by WebEx to such Referral Customer.

D.     In addition to the commission, for each proper WRP Form provided to and accepted by WebEx as specified above, WebEx shall allow Referral Customer to choose a Referral Gift as specified below. The "Referral Gift" shall be one of the following items: Webcam, Poker Set, Golf kit set, or $25 Gift Certificate to giftcertifcates.com (see http://www.giftcertificates.com/info/help/TermsAndConditions.cfm for terms and conditions that apply to such certificate).  A Referral Customer shall be entitled to a maximum of two (2) Referral Gifts.  Substitution for a Referral Gift of comparable value is permitted at WebEx’s sole discretion.  WebEx will endeavor to ship the Referral Gift within approximately 60 days of acceptance of the appropriate WRP Form.  WebEx is not responsible for and shall not be liable for late, lost, misdirected, or unsuccessful efforts to provide such Referral Gift.  Signature upon acceptance of delivery of a Referral Gift may be required.  Only individual persons are eligible to receive a Referral Gift.  Corporations and/or entities may not receive a Referral Gift.

E.     The commissions and all other information regarding the Program may be changed at any time by WebEx, at its sole discretion.  Payment for commissions earned shall be made by WebEx in the manner set forth in the Program Page.  Commissions paid are subject to applicable law.  All federal, state, provincial, and/or local taxes are the sole responsibility of the Referral Customer.  

2.      Approval.

A.     Participation in the Program is subject to WebEx’s approval.  Prospective Referral Customers must first submit an application to WebEx to become an "approved" Referral Customer eligible to earn commissions.  After the application has been submitted, WebEx will notify the prospective Referral Customer writing (by e-mail or otherwise) whether or not it has been approved (approval is in WebEx’s sole discretion).

B.     During the application process, Referral Customer must acknowledge its acceptance of these Standard Terms and Conditions (the "Agreement") by clicking-through the "acceptance" button thereby assenting to the Agreement.  This Agreement shall apply only to approved-Referral Customers who accept this Agreement and only Referral Customers who accept this Agreement may participate in the Program.

C.     Other than the payment of commissions through the Program, Referral Customer shall have no claims to any additional compensation, commissions or business derived by or through the WebEx Services.

D.     Participation in the Program does not constitute an employment, broker or agency relationship between Referral Customer and WebEx nor does it create any partnership, joint venture, franchise, or sales representative relationship between the parties.


3.      Term and Termination.

A.     The term of this Agreement shall be continuous, unless and until WebEx terminates this Agreement.  WebEx shall provide Referral Customer with advance notice, except as provided for in Section 3(B) below.  The Program is active until such time as WebEx cancels or changes it.  This can be done at any time and at the sole discretion of WebEx.

C.     For purposes of notification of termination by WebEx, delivery via email is considered a written and immediate form of notification.

D.     Upon any termination of this Agreement, WebEx and Referral Customer will be released from all obligations and liabilities to the other party occurring or arising after the date of such termination or the transactions contemplated hereby, except that no such termination will relieve Referral Customer from any liability arising from any breach of this Agreement occurring prior to termination, or breach of any provision which by its nature is designed to survive termination of this Agreement.
