ParkStash Host Referral Program
Last Updated: May 25, 2019
Description of the Program
The ParkStash Host Referral Program (“Program”) permits select, invited eligible members to earn money (see Payment section below) by referring to ParkStash first time, new Hosts (“Referred Hosts”) who create listings or activate existing listings for the first time and successfully complete bookings. A “Completed” booking is a booking that is accepted by the Referred Host and paid for by the Guest and which is not cancelled by either the Guest or the Referred Host at any time before or after the scheduled check-in for such booking.
Referred Hosts will be attributed upon Referring Host’s invite. Referring Hosts can only get Payment for the first 25 Referred Hosts (i.e., the first 25 Hosts they Referred under this Referral Program) who Complete their first booking in line with these Terms.
To participate, Referring Hosts must agree to these Terms. The Program may not be combined with other ParkStash referral programs or incentives. By participating in the Program, you forfeit your ability to earn promotional coupon credits (“Travel Credits”) via other ParkStash referral programs for Referred Hosts. When you refer a Referred Host, the Host will see your ParkStash listing and profile on the landing page for your Referral Link.
Use of the Dashboard
You agree that you will not use the Host Referral Dashboard (“Dashboard”) for any purpose other than tracking your own progress and the progress of others in your geographic area. You will respect the privacy of others and comply with applicable laws.
This Program will run until December 31, 2019 or until ParkStash posts a message on this page that the Program is no longer in effect. If a Host that you Referred before the end of the Program gets their first booking, you will still receive Payment for the referral.
You agree to (i) use best efforts to refer Referred Hosts to create and activate listings located; and (ii) educate Referred Hosts on how to use the ParkStash platform, including how to accept bookings through the ParkStash platform, by pointing them to resources at findparkstash.com. You may not represent yourself as an employee, intermediary or agent or as being authorized to bind the Company. You may not create materials (including business cards, websites or email addresses) bearing Company branding or that imply any affiliation or agency relationship between you and ParkStash. However, you must state that you are a Referring Host who is encouraging Hosts to list on ParkStash.
Sharing Referral Links
Referrals should only be used for personal and non-commercial purposes, and only shared with personal connections that will appreciate receiving these invitations. Referral links should not be published or distributed where there is no reasonable basis for believing that all or most of the recipients are personal friends (such as coupon websites, Reddit, or Wikipedia).
You agree and represent that you will use referral methods and techniques that people will appreciate and that are legal. You should only contact people who have given you their consent to be contacted, and you should not solicit potential hosts who live in buildings where short-term rentals are prohibited by law, such as government-sponsored housing. You agree and represent that you will always be mindful to respect the privacy of others (i.e. do not spam), be honest, open, and transparent about who you are and what you are offering (i.e. do not mislead). Make sure to tell your friends and other who you invite to join ParkStash to check the laws that may apply to them and that you educate them about what it takes to be a responsible host.
You agree that you will not set up accounts, create listings, or prepare listing content on behalf of Referred Hosts and that you will not be eligible for payments if you are in breach of these Host Referral Program Terms.
If you are based in the United States, you will receive the amount specified on the under the “Referral Earning” “Referrals” heading.
If you are based outside the US, you will receive the equivalent in your local currency (i.e., the currency of the payment method that you have selected for payouts).
Where applicable, the local currency equivalent will be calculated using a system-wide rate, known as the base exchange rate, for currency conversion using data from one or more third parties, such as OANDA. We regularly update the base exchange rate, but it may not be identical to the real-time market rate.
To qualify for any payouts, the Referred Host’s bookings must have reached value of at least $100 USD (or the equivalent in your local currency ). The Referred Host has 150 days from the date they are invited to Complete their qualifying booking in order to earn the Payment.
All Referred Hosts must be new, first time Hosts. No payment will be made for listings created by current or former ParkStash Hosts, or for bookings made by family or friends of the Referred Host, or for bookings where either the Referred Host or the Referred Host's listing has the same address as you. Payouts will be made within 30 days of each qualifying event, to the payout mechanism you designate on your ParkStash account. The ParkStash Terms of Service as it relates to the application of taxes applies to any Program payout.
Whether a payout is due shall be a decision made in the sole discretion of ParkStash. ParkStash reserves the right to any remedy, including denial of payout or cancellation of your account, if fraud, tampering or other violations of ParkStash's Terms of Service or these Terms are suspected.
Additional Incentives and Programs
From time to time, ParkStash may publicize additional incentives and programs applicable to particular markets. Such announcements will include specific information regarding the requirements for receiving such incentives in that market.
Tax regulations may require us to collect appropriate tax information from Referring Hosts, or to withhold taxes from payouts, or both. For instance, IRS regulations stipulate that we must collect an IRS Form W-9 from US persons who receive payment. You are solely responsible for keeping the information in your tax forms current, complete and accurate. If you fail to provide us with documentation that we determine to be sufficient to alleviate our obligation (if any) to withhold payments to you, we reserve the right in our sole discretion to freeze all payouts to you until resolution, to withhold such amounts as required by law, or to do both.
You understand and agree that you are solely responsible for determining (i) your applicable Tax reporting requirements, and (ii) the Taxes that should be included, and for including Taxes to be collected or obligations relating to applicable Taxes. You are also solely responsible for remitting to the relevant authority any Taxes included or received by you. ParkStash cannot and does not offer Tax-related advice to you. Where applicable, or based upon request, ParkStash may issue a valid VAT invoice to you.
Nature of Relationship
You acknowledge and agree that it is a fundamental term and condition precedent of your participation in the Program that you are not an employee, intermediary or agent of the Company, and you will not hold yourself out as, or give any person reason to believe, that you are an employee, intermediary or agent of the Company. You agree nothing in your participation will be construed as establishing an employment or agency relationship between Company and you. Accordingly, you have not at any time been and are not entitled to, and hereby irrevocably waive any right or claim to, the benefits provided by the Company to its employees from time to time, including vacation time, benefits, salary, bonus, stock or stock options, profit sharing, insurance, or medical and health benefits.

ParkStash may terminate your participation in the Program at any time, for any reason or no reason. The rights and obligations of the parties under these Terms will survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement.

If the modified Terms are not acceptable to you, your only recourse is to cease using the Dashboard and to terminate your Program participation.
ParkStash Driver Referral Program Terms and Conditions
Last updated: July 6, 2019
The ParkStash Driver Referral Program (“The Program”) allows Members to earn promotional credits (“Parking Credits”) toward future bookings by referring friends to become new users on ParkStash.
To participate, Members must agree to these terms, which become part of the ParkStash Terms and conditions. Capitalized terms that are not defined here will have the same meaning given to them in the ParkStash Terms and conditions.
How to Earn Driver Referral Credits
Members can earn Parking Credits if: (i) a referred friend clicks on their referral link to create a valid ParkStash account that complies with our ParkStash Terms and conditions; and (ii) the referred friend completes a Qualifying Booking Amount (as defined below). The referring Member cannot earn Parking Credits for any booking which they host.
The referring Member will be credited with the Parking Credit amount(s) specified for each type of booking in the referral invitation or accompanying promotional materials after the completion of the referred friend’s Qualifying Booking.
Qualifying Booking Amount
A Qualifying Booking Amount must have the minimum total value of $75 (excluding fees or taxes) indicated in the referral invitation, accompanying promotional materials, ParkStash website, or ParkStash mobile application for that type of booking. The amount can comprise of one booking or addition of multiple bookings by the referred member. Note that this total value may change based on currency fluctuations. The Qualifying Booking must be booked and paid for via the ParkStash platform, and the referred friend must complete the booking experience before the referring Member can receive Parking Credits. A booking will not be considered a Qualifying Booking, and therefore no Parking Credits will be earned, if the referring Member is the host or if the booking is cancelled at any time.
Redeeming Parking Credits
The referred member has to apply referral code in promos section of ParkStash app to redeem parking credits. Parking Credits may only be redeemed via the ParkStash Platform. Once earned, Parking Credits will appear in ParkStash Wallet, but you may need to enter a code at checkout to redeem the credit. Parking Credits must be used within one year from the date they are issued, after which they will expire. Parking Credits are coupons issued for promotional purposes; they have no cash value and may not be transferred or exchanged for cash.
Parking Credits may not be earned by creating multiple ParkStash Accounts. Parking Credits accrued in separate ParkStash accounts may not be combined into one ParkStash account.
If for any reason you believe that there is a discrepancy regarding your balance of Parking Credits, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. ParkStash may require you to submit additional information in order to make a determination regarding your balance. All decisions regarding your balance will be final and at ParkStash’s sole discretion.
You are responsible for any Tax consequences, if any, that may result from your redemption or use of Parking Credits. Where applicable, ParkStash may be required to account for VAT on any services for which the Parking Credits are redeemed.
Sharing Referral Links
Referrals should only be used for personal and non-commercial purposes. Referral links should not be published or distributed on commercial websites (such as coupon websites, Reddit, or Wikipedia) or on blogs. Members are prohibited from “spamming” anyone with referral invitations. This includes mass emailing, texting or messaging people you do not know or using automated systems or bots through any channel to distribute your referral link. Members are prohibited from paying to advertise their referral links.
Referred friends who have signed up using a valid referral link will also receive credit in the form of a coupon or coupons in the amount(s) indicated in the referral invitation or accompanying promotional materials that can be used on their next Booking on ParkStash. Coupon codes that are not automatically applied must be entered during checkout. Coupon codes may not be transferred to another person, exchanged for cash, or combined with other ParkStash referral programs or incentives.
Coupon codes expire one year from when you sign up for an ParkStash account. Offer available while seats last. ParkStash reserves the right to any remedy, including cancellation of your account or bookings, if fraud, tampering, violations of these terms or ParkStash’s Terms of Service or Payments Terms of Service, or technical errors are suspected. Void where prohibited. If your booking later qualifies for a refund, the maximum refund you may receive is the amount you actually paid.
A referred friend may only use one referral link. If a referred friend receives referral links from multiple Members, only the Member associated with the referral link actually used by the referred friend will receive Parking Credit.
The Program may not be combined with other ParkStash referral programs or incentives. If a referred friend receives referral links from multiple ParkStash referral programs, preference will be given to payment via the Host Referral Program, voiding eligibility from The Program.
If any provision in these terms are held to be invalid, void, or unenforceable, such provision (or the part of it that is making it invalid, void or unenforceable) will be struck and not affect the validity of and enforceability of the remaining provisions.
Termination and Changes
ParkStash may suspend or terminate the Program or a user’s ability to participate in it at any time for any reason.
We reserve the right to suspend accounts or remove Parking Credits if we notice any activity that we believe is abusive, fraudulent, or in violation of the ParkStash Terms of Service or Payments Terms of Service. We reserve the right to review and investigate all referral activities and to suspend accounts or modify referrals in our sole discretion as deemed fair and appropriate.
The scope, variety, and type of services and products that you may obtain by redeeming Parking Credits can change at any time.
Updates to the Terms
We can update these terms at any time without prior notice. If we modify these terms, we will post the modification on the findparkstash.com website, applications, or services, which are effective upon posting. Continued participation in the Program after any modification shall constitute consent to such modification.
* If available, the local currency equivalent Parking Credit amount will be calculated using a system-wide rate, known as the base exchange rate, for currency conversion using data from one or more third parties, such as OANDA. We regularly update the base exchange rate, but it may not be identical to the real-time market rate.
