Thank you for your interest in The Pool Points Rewards program (“Pool Points Program” or the “Program”). The Pool Points Program is a customer benefits and referral program offered by The Wealth Pool, LLC, an Illinois limited liability company ("TWP," “we” or “us”), whereby TWP account holders can earn and use Program points (“Points”) in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth below. The following terms and conditions (the "Terms") govern your participation in the Program. By setting up a TWP account (“Account”), signing in to your Account, making a referral, or otherwise using the Program via this website (the "Website"), you acknowledge that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by these Terms as well as our general Terms and Conditions (the "General Terms and Conditions"), and that you agree to comply with all applicable laws and regulations with respect to Pool Points Program.
IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE PROGRAM TERMS AND CONDITIONS AND THE GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS, DO NOT SET UP AN ACCOUNT, SIGN IN TO YOUR ACCOUNT, MAKE A REFERRAL, OR OTHERWISE PARTICIPATE IN THE PROGRAM. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE PROGRAM TERMS AND CONDITIONS WHEN YOU SET UP AN ACCOUNT, ANY POINTS THAT HAVE ACCUMULATED WILL NOT BE CREDITED TO YOUR ACCOUNT, AND YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO REDEEM THOSE POINTS.
TWP may modify, update, add to, discontinue, remove or otherwise change these Terms or the Program at any time, in its sole discretion. Such changes may include, without limitation, changes in the terms and conditions for: the accrual, value, and award of Points, the redemption of Points or other Program benefits, or other aspects of the Program Terms. You may not rely on the continued availability of Points or other Program benefits.
Each such modification will take immediate effect upon notice to you. TWP may provide you with notice by email, regular mail, notice posted on the Website, or other reasonable means now known or hereinafter developed.
Your continued use of the Program and this Website following any such notifications constitutes your acceptance of such modifications and your agreement to be bound by these Terms. If you do not agree to any modification of these Terms, your sole remedy is to discontinue your use of the Website and Program. The most current version of these Terms will be available on our Website and supersedes previous versions.
To receive points under the program (“Pool Points”) for a referral under the Program, eligible referrers (“Referrers”) must create an Account, receive their unique referral links, and send the relevant link(s) to third party individuals (“Referred Clients”) whom they intend to refer to the Service. In order for the Referrer to receive credit, the Referred Client must use their Referrer’s unique link to first register for an Account, create a complete personal profile, and purchase TWP’s paid retail service (the “Service”) for 3 consecutive months. After the first 3 consecutive months, the Referrer will receive 3 Pool Points, and will receive 1 Pool Point per month for each month that the Referred Client purchases the Service thereafter.
Only one referral credit (“Referral Reward”) will be awarded per Referred Client per month, regardless of whether the Referred Client purchases multiple services from TWP during any month. A Referrer will not earn Pool Points if their Referred Client has an existing TWP Account or if the Referred Client does not use the correct referral link when first creating their Account. A Referrer will not earn Pool Points if their Referred Client cancels their Service, switches to an unpaid TWP service, or switches to an employer-subsidized service.
Referrers will not receive credit for referring themselves, including for creating a new account or purchasing a new Service via their own unique referral link. Referrers are limited to referring their own friends, family members, and direct acquaintances. Any Referred Client must be able to personally identify their Referrer. TWP reserves the right to disqualify anyone from this Program at any time. Anyone who violates these Terms is ineligible for any Pool Points.
The Program supports referrals to TWP’s paid Service only, and no Pool Points will be awarded for referral to other TWP services.
3.1 Non-solicitation Agreement
You agree not to compensate, or accept any compensation from, Referred Clients whom you refer to TWP through the Program. You further agree that your activities will be limited to informing your contacts about TWP's services so that they may independently decide whether or not to sign-up as a TWP client. You may not collect information from your contacts or assist with creating a TWP profile or purchasing any TWP products or services.
3.2 No Spam
You must comply with all applicable laws and regulations, including anti-spam laws. Any distribution of a Program link, including by email or social media, must be done in a personal manner. Bulk email distribution and any use of automated devices or third party services is prohibited. Program links should only be sent to your own friends, family members, and direct acquaintances. Referrers may not purchase internet search terms or publicly advertise TWP’s services, services or name in any fashion. Further, any distribution of a Program link that could constitute unsolicited commercial email or “spam,” any content which impersonates or implies an affiliation with or endorsement by TWP or any TWP affiliate, or any actions which otherwise violate any conditions imposed by TWP, are prohibited and will be grounds for immediate termination.
TWP may periodically offer Pool Points for participation in special promotions. If you elect to participate in our these promotions, the terms and conditions accompanying such offers will govern how they are earned and paid if the terms and conditions differ from this Agreement. All Pool Points awarded pursuant to a special promotion are subject to review. TWP reserves the right to withhold, deny or cancel any such Pool Points or terminate your Account if TWP determines, in its sole discretion, that any of your activity may fraudulent, abusive, unethical, suspicious or otherwise inconsistent with these Terms or any applicable law or regulation. TWP decisions are final.
Pool Points may be redeemed for cash, with a value of 1 Pool Point per $1 USD. This conversion is subject to change at any time, is not guaranteed, and should not be relied upon.
5.1 Requirements. As a condition of payment of Pool Points, you must: (i) establish and maintain an active Account; (ii) provide a valid email address at which you are able to receive email; and (iii) provide a valid PayPal email address and/or a phone number associated with a Venmo account for receiving payment. If you elect to receive payment via PayPal, you must not use a PayPal account associated with another Account. If you elect to receive payment via Venmo, you must not use a Venmo account associated with another Account and must not use a VoIP number. A single PayPal email address cannot be connected to multiple Accounts; a single Venmo phone number cannot be connected to multiple Accounts. You further agree to provide additional information we may reasonably request to verify your identity as a condition for receiving payment.
5.2 Payments. The minimum payment amount for redemption of Pool Points rewards is $10. Balances below $10 conversion value will remain in your Account for potential payment during the next quarter. TWP pays members in U.S. dollars via Venmo, PayPal, or other payment options as TWP may make available from time to time. You may select or change your payment options by updating your information in “My Profile” under “My Rewards.” TWP will automatically convert Pool Points with a $10 conversion value for payment each quarter. TWP also reserves the right to modify the payment schedule at any time. TWP is not responsible for payment errors made by payment partners, like PayPal and Venmo.
5.3 Fraudulent Activity We reserve the right to investigate any transactions, referral activity, or interaction with any TWP website or program that we believe, in our sole discretion, is abusing or has abused the Program. We reserve the right to rescind any Pool Points, bar further Pool Point accrual, and/or terminate any Account that we believe, in our sole discretion, is abusing or has abused the Program. Any failure to comply with these Terms, any fraud or abuse relating to the accrual or receipt of Pool Points or other rewards and bonuses, or any misrepresentation of any information furnished to TWP by you or anyone acting on your behalf may result in the termination of your Account and forfeiture of any accrued Pool Points. If TWP has any reason to suspect fraudulent activity is associated with your Account, TWP reserves the right to delay or withhold conversion of Pool Points. Any suspected or actual cases of fraud activity will be escalated and reviewed in accordance with our fraud process. TWP decisions are final.
Your participation in the Program is solely as an independent contractor. Neither you nor TWP intend to establish an employment relationship and you are not entitled to any benefits. If the cumulative Pool Points rewards paid to an individual in a one calendar year exceed $599 USD, then form W-9 may be required to be completed prior to funds disbursement. Any payments that are not claimed within 180 days of the date the funds have been made available, whether because PayPal or Venmo account or required tax information have not been provided or otherwise are subject to forfeit. TWP reserves the right to change or eliminate the Program at any time.

TWP MAKES NO WARRANTY OF ANY KIND RELATED TO THE PROGRAM AND/OR ANY PARTNER PROGRAMS, AND TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND WITH RESPECT THERETO, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, DESIGN, ACCURACY, CAPABILITY, SUFFICIENCY, SUITABILITY, CAPACITY, COMPLETENESS OR AVAILABILITY) AND/OR ARISING BY STATUTE OR OTHERWISE IN LAW FROM DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE.

TO THE EXTENT THE FILING FEE FOR THE ARBITRATION EXCEEDS THE COST OF FILING A LAWSUIT, WE WILL PAY THE ADDITIONAL COST.

If you opt-out of these arbitration provisions, we also will not be bound by them.
TWP has the sole right to interpret and apply the Terms. Pool Points and other Program benefits are non-transferable and may not be shared among Account holders, their estates, successors or assigns. In addition, accumulated Pool Points do not constitute property of the Account holder and are non-transferable, including without limitation upon the death of an Account holder or as a part of any domestic relations matter. If any provision hereof shall be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms, and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions hereof. Our electronically or otherwise properly stored copy of these Terms will be deemed to be the true, complete, valid, authentic, and enforceable copy, and you agree that you will not contest the admissibility or enforceability of our copy of these Terms in connection with any action or proceeding arising out of or relating to these Terms. Our waiver of any violation of these Terms will not be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent violation hereof. These Terms constitute the entire understanding with respect to the subject matter hereof, and shall supersede any and all communications, negotiations, correspondence, course of dealings and other agreements regarding such subject matter.
