REFERRAL POLICY

Last Updated: March 2019

Description of the Program

The DiningClub Referral program (“Program”) permits select and invite eligible members to earn money by referring to The DiningClub first time, new Chefs (“Referred Chefs”) and first time, new Foodies (‘Referred Foodies’), who create or activate their profile for the first time and successfully complete a qualifying booking. Referred Chefs will be attributed upon Referring Chef’s or Referring Foodie’s invite.
For each person you refer, there are two opportunities to earn credit. You earn credit when your friend completes a qualifying booking as a Foodie and also if they complete a qualifying reservation as a Chef. The amount you earn is different depending on whether you refer Chefs or Foodies.
Chefs who refer other Chefs will only receive payout for the first 25 Referred fellow Chefs who complete their first booking in line with these Terms.
Foodies who refer other Chefs can only get credit for the first 25 Referred fellow Chefs who complete their first booking in line with these Terms.
To participate, Referring Chefs and Foodies must agree to these Terms. The Program may not be combined with other The DiningClub referral programs or incentives.

How do I earn credit from referring Foodies & Chefs to The DiningClub?

Anyone registered with The DiningClub can refer a friend (either Chef or Foodie). You do not need to have ever booked a culinary experience on The DiningClub to refer a friend.

We refer to the person receiving a referral link as your ‘Referral’. Referral links should only be used for personal and non-commercial purposes. This means that you can share your invite link with your personal connections via email, Whatsapp, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram.

You agree not to publish or distribute the link, or cause the link to be published or distributed, on or via methods, platforms and media where you have no reasonable basis for believing that all or

most of the readers or recipients are your personal friends (such as coupon websites, Reddit, Wikipedia). Any attempt to manipulate the system and use of discounts, vouchers or referral links by use of bulk entry via third parties or syndicates, macros, ‘script’, ‘brute force’, masking identity by manipulating IP addresses, using identities other than their own or any other automated means (including systems which can be programmed to enter), will render the booking and use of that discount, voucher or referral link invalid and may potentially lead to that account being closed down.

The DiningClub reserves the right, where necessary, to undertake all such action as is reasonable to protect itself against fraudulent or invalid redemptions including, without limitation, to require further verification as to the identity, age, and other relevant details of a customer.

 To earn credit, send a referral link to your friends. When a friend uses that link to join The DiningClub, they’ll get credit that will automatically apply towards their first booking with Us. When your friend completes their first qualifying booking, you’ll earn credit to use for your own next booking with The DiningClub. You’ll get the credit after booking has been completed and has not been disputed.

For each person you refer, there are two opportunities to earn credit. You earn credit when your friend completes a qualifying booking as a Foodie and also if they complete a qualifying reservation as a Chef. The amount you earn is different depending on whether you refer Chefs or Foodies.

Qualifying Booking

If you refer a Foodie (and you’re either a chef or a fellow foodie): A qualifying booking has a total value (excluding any service fees, taxes and special offers) of £150 or more. All bookings must be booked and paid for via the The DiningClub platform, and completed by the Referral, in order to receive or redeem credits. A booking that is subsequently cancelled, refunded or altered such that the total value (excluding any service fees) becomes less than £150, does not qualify for credits. Amounts may vary during promotional periods.

A booking also does not qualify if you are either the Chef or the Foodie on the reservation, or if both the Chef and the Foodie were referred by you.

Your available booking credits appear on the checkout page. If the credits aren’t automatically added, it means the reservation didn’t qualify or perhaps it was disputed.

  • If you are a foodie referring a foodie: For every referred foodie who signs up with your link and completes a qualifying booking, you’ll receive £5 in booking credit. Referred foodies will receive £10.
  • If you are a Chef referring a Foodie: For every referred foodie who signs up with your link and completes a qualifying booking, you’ll receive £5 to be redeemed on your next payout. Referred foodies will receive £10.

Credits expire 3 months from the date issued.

If you refer a Chef (and you’re either a chef or a fellow foodie):

A qualifying booking for a first time Chef has a total value (excluding any service fees, taxes and special offers) of £150 or more. All bookings must be booked and paid for via the The DiningClub platform, and completed by the referral, in order to receive or redeem credits. A booking that is subsequently cancelled, refunded or altered such that the total value (excluding any service fees) becomes less than £150, does not qualify for credits. Amounts may vary during promotional periods.

All Referred Chefs must be new to the app. No payment will be made for listings created by current or former The DiningClub Chefs, or for bookings made by family or friends of the Referred Chef, or for bookings where either the Referred Chef or the Referred Chef’s listing has the same address as you.

Payouts will be made within 30 days of each qualifying booking, to the payout mechanism you designate on your The DiningClub account. The DiningClub Terms of Service as it relates to the application of taxes applies to any Program payout.

To qualify for any payouts, the Referred Chef has 180 days from the date they are invited to complete their first booking in order for the Referring Chef to earn the payment.

Whether a payout is due, it shall be a decision made in the sole discretion of The DiningClub. The DiningClub reserves the right to any remedy, including denial of payout or cancellation of your account, if fraud, tampering or other violations of The DiningClub’s Terms of Service or these Terms are suspected.

  • If you are a foodie referring a Chef: For every referred Chef who signs up with your link and completes a qualifying booking, you’ll receive 15% of their first qualifying booking in booking credit.

  • If you are a Chef referring a Chef: For every referred chef who signs up with your link and completes a qualifying booking, you’ll receive 15% of their first qualifying booking to be redeemed on your next payout.

Credits expire 3 months from the date issued.

 

Receiving and Redeeming Credits

You will receive credit after your referral’s qualifying booking has taken place. As soon as one of your referrals successfully completes a qualifying booking, you will be credited with the appropriate amount as described on the link you clicked to send the referral or accompanying promotional materials. If you are a Foodie, all of your earned credits will be automatically applied to your next qualifying booking (up to 4 credits or a maximum total value of £100 can be redeemed for the same booking), which you will see on the Profile page;  if you are a Chef, all of your earned credits will be automatically applied to your next payout, which you will see on the Dashboard page.

You cannot combine your credits with an additional discount code. Credits expire after 3 months from the date that they are issued.

 

Multiple Referrals

If your referral (Chef or Foodie) was also referred by another user, you will receive your credit after a qualifying booking if the referral uses your referral code or clicks on your referral link when they sign up. If your referral uses a different referral link or clicks on another person’s referral link when they sign up, you will not receive the credit.

If you are a Foodie and you’ve been invited To Join The DiningClub via a Referral link

Sign up using a valid referral link (or by clicking on a valid referral link) from an existing user and you’ll receive credits to use towards your next qualifying booking on The DiningClub.

Your credits will be automatically applied to your next qualifying booking, which you will see on your Profile page.

We reserve the right to suspend your account and remove referrals should we notice any activity we determine as abuse of the referral program.

Updates to the Terms

If the modified terms are not acceptable to you, your only recourse is to stop sending referrals.
