You may participate in our “Student Referral Program” by referring potential students to the Service. Under the Student Referral Program, you will receive an award (a “Student Referral Award”) of 20 GOGO Points for each Qualified Student Referral (as hereinafter defined).
In order to receive a Student Referral Award, each of the following requirements must be met: (i) you must log in to your GOGO CLASS account on the Service and select the “Invite Friends” link; (ii) you must share the link provided with friends via Facebook, Weibo or similar services, by copying and pasting the Unique Referral Link generated via the Service, by sending the Unique Referral Link in an email via the Services to your friends, or by using the other tools provided by GOGO CLASS to share the Unique Referral Link with friends; and (iii) a friend who clicks the Unique Referral Link must create a GOGO CLASS account within 3 months and enroll in online classes with a total value of purchases of at least HK$150 that is not refunded.

REFERRAL AWARDS GENERALLY
Satisfaction of a Qualified Referral (as hereinafter defined) and the Referral Award (as hereinafter defined) you receive will be reflected in your GOGO CLASS account in a commercially reasonable amount of time after the Qualified Referral has been completed. The Referral Awards you accrue will be displayed in your GOGO CLASS account profile page. Referral Awards can be accrued solely by you and you may not earn Referral Awards by permitting another individual to use your GOGO CLASS account. Referral Awards accrued in multiple GOGO CLASS accounts may not be combined into one GOGO CLASS account. You may not earn Referral Awards by creating multiple GOGO CLASS accounts.
For purposes hereof, a “Qualified Referral” means a Qualified Student Referral, and a “Referral Award” means a Student Referral Award.
We reserve the right to suspend your account and remove referrals should we notice any activity we determine as abuse of the referral program.
“GOGO Points” are points that may be applied as credits of HK$1.00 each toward purchase of products or future fees for online classes booked through the Service (GOGO Points cannot be used for local classes). GOGO Points may only be redeemed for the purchase of products or tickets to online classes on the Services (GOGO Points cannot be used for local classes). You may only redeem GOGO Points after the GOGO Points are reflected in your GOGO Points account. The scope, variety, and type of services and products that you may obtain by redeeming GOGO Points can change at any time.
There are two ways of acquiring GOGO Points: by earning them from our referral program and by purchasing them for your prepaid account. In the ordinary course of business, GOGO Points earned from the referral program and purchased for your prepaid account will not expire, as long as we continue providing the Service. However, in case we decide to discontinue our Service, you will have up to 60 days from the date we send you the notice of Service discontinuation to use up all of your purchased and earned GOGO Points. All GOGO Points (purchased and earned) will expire after 60 days from the date we send out the notice of Service discontinuation. GOGO Points (whether valid or expired) cannot be transferred, redeemed for cash or credit, replaced, exchanged or refunded. If for some reason you believe that there is a discrepancy regarding your balance of GOGO Points, please contact customer service. GOGO CLASS may require to you to submit additional information in order to make a determination regarding your balance. All decisions regarding your balance will be final and at GOGO CLASS’s sole discretion.
By acquiring GOGO Points, you agree and acknowledge that GOGO CLASS is granting you a limited, revocable license to a digital item, and that GOGO Points are not your personal property. You may not obtain any cash or money in exchange for GOGO Points. Except as explicitly provided herein, GOGO Points are non-transferable. Members are responsible for keeping track of the GOGO Points in their GOGO CLASS accounts.
Without limiting any other terms hereof and subject to applicable law, all GOGO Points are forfeited if your GOGO CLASS Account is terminated or suspended for any reason, in GOGO CLASS’s sole discretion, or if GOGO CLASS discontinues providing the Service or the Referral Program.
You agree to indemnify and hold Point Hope (and its officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures, employees and third-party service providers) harmless from all claims, demands, and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, including reasonable attorneys' fees, costs, expenses or damages arising out of or related to your use of our Site, submissions, a breach of these Terms, or your violation of any law or the rights of a third party.
