By participating in the Applied Systems, Inc., in relation to its EZLynx brand, (“Applied”) referral program (the "Program"), the following terms and conditions ("Terms") apply. Applied may at any time and in its sole discretion, without prior notice, terminate, cancel, suspend, or modify the Program or these Terms. If you are an existing customer of Applied inviting friends to participate, you are a "customer" under these terms, and if you are a person who receives an invitation, you are a "recipient." 

Customer represents and warrants that it has the legal authority to accept these Terms on behalf of itself and recipient. If recipient does not agree to any of the provisions of these Terms, neither customer nor recipient are authorized to participate in the Program.

Eligibility and Overview  

Participation in this Program is permissible until the Program is terminated or modified by Applied. If customer refers a recipient prior to Applied’s termination or modification of the program, the customer will still be eligible to earn the reward described below before such termination or modification so long as the eligibility requirements are satisfied.

To be eligible to earn rewards through the Program:

  1. Customer must have an Applied account in good standing (“Valid Account”) at the time of participation through when their reward(s) are issued. 
  2. Customer must have received prior authorization from recipient to provide Applied with recipient’s contact information. 
  3. The recipient cannot be among Applied’s existing clients at the time of the referral, or a prior existing client of Applied, or one of Applied’s known marketing prospects at the time of the referral.

Customer may refer a recipient by providing the recipient’s contact information to Applied, either directly through the Applied website or specific URL, in response to an invitation to participate in the Program, or by other acceptable means.  Once Applied has determined that the recipient information provided by customer is valid and recipient is qualified to receive Applied products, customer will be eligible for a first reward (“Reward One”).  

Customer will be eligible for a second reward (“Reward Two”) once recipient has completed ninety [90] days as an active, paying customer.

By participating in the referral program, customer agrees to receive communications from us about participation in the Program, and to allow us to communicate with customers or recipients about customer’s participation (for example, by disclosing to recipient who referred them). 



Reward One is a gift card to a merchant of Applied’s choice in the amount of twenty-five dollars [25 USD].  Gift cards will be mailed to customer once Applied has received and verified the referral per the Terms.  A gift card is considered as redeemed as soon as it is mailed to customer. The gift card merchant is not a sponsor of this Program. 

Reward Two is a discounted registration fee to the succeeding year’s Applied Net once the recipient has completed ninety [90] days as a valid customer.

Rewards are issued to a single Applied account at Applied’s discretion and cannot be transferred, bartered, or sold. Reward Two cannot be redeemed for cash and must be used as explicitly stated above.

Limits on Referrals:

There is a limit of five (5) rewards per customer valid Account.  Additionally, in the event a customer is eligible for Reward Two, the number of discounted Applied Net registrations a customer may be awarded shall not exceed the number of licensed users a customer has associated with their Valid Account. If two or more customers invite the same recipient, Applied will credit the reward to the person who submits recipient’s information first, as determined in Applied's sole discretion.

Receiving and Using Rewards:  

Applied reserves the right to limit, cancel, delay, or revoke a reward if Applied determines, in its sole discretion, that a customer or recipient has violated these Terms or has acted in a fraudulent or abusive manner, or if Applied restricts or closes the customer or recipient’s account pursuant to any of Applied’s terms of use.

Applied may provide an alternate reward of equal value if it is unable for any reason to fulfill the reward. Reward redemptions are final, will not be returned, and are subject to review and verification.   

Applied is not responsible and/or liable if any e-mail, reward, referrals, or Program-related materials or correspondence are lost, fraudulent, abusive, stolen, late, incomplete, illegible, interrupted, delayed, altered, defective, misdirected, tampered with, or irregular in any way or if any customer or recipient’s e-mail address, Valid Account, or other contact information does not work, is deleted, or is changed without prior written notice to Applied.
