  7. Changes to our Services; Changes to the Agreement
  8. We are constantly changing and improving our Services. We may add or remove functionalities or features of the Services at any time, and we may suspend or stop a Service altogether. We may modify the Agreement at any time. We’ll post any modifications to the Genius Referrals Terms on this page and any modifications to the Genius Referrals Privacy Policies on the respective page.

However, changes addressing new functions for a Service or changes made for legal reasons will be effective immediately. If you don’t agree to any modified terms in the Agreement, you’ll have to stop using the affected Services.

  9. Payments
  10. When you make your first payment using a credit card, you automatically enter our auto pay program, which allows us to automatically collect payments on your bills. If you want to choose not to use this service, you can do in the configuration section of your account.

    Client will pay all charges incurred in connection with the Services, in immediately available funds or as otherwise approved by Genius Referrals, within a commercially reasonable time period specified by Genius Referrals. Late payments bear interest at the rate of 1.5% per month (or the highest rate permitted by law, if less). Charges are exclusive of taxes. Customer will pay (i) all taxes and other government charges and (ii) reasonable expenses and attorneys’ fees Genius Referrals incurs in collecting late payments. Charges are solely based on Genius Referrals' measurements for the Services and the applicable billing metrics. Any portion of a charge not disputed in good faith must be paid in full. No party may offset any payment due under these Terms against any other payment to be made under these Terms. Genius Referrals may, in its sole discretion, extend, revise or revoke credit at any time. If Genius Referrals does not deliver the Services, the Client's sole remedy is to make a claim for account credits within 60 days after the invoice date (“Claim Period”), after which Genius Referrals will issue the credits following claim validation which must be used by the Use By Date.

    If you don't pay your invoice within 7 days your account will be blocked and you will not be able to use the Services until you've pay in full your pending invoices.

  11. Refer a Friend Program

We reserve the right to withdraw this offer at any time or to remove any unused credit.

    If you wish to use paid advertising (eg. Google AdWords) with your share links you may not use it as a landing page directly or via a redirect, and must instead create a page on your own site to encourage visitors to use your referral link. You may not bid on keywords containing our brand terms (eg. "genius referrals", "geniusreferrals.com", etc.) and may not include them in your ad text/graphics.

    In order to redeem your bonuses as cash you must have a verified PayPal account. The username on the Paypal accounts must match the username on the Genius Referrals account in order to redeem the bonus as cash. Payouts will be done once a week on Thursday at 5:00 pm EDT, requests for payout must be submitted by 3:00 pm EDT on that day.
