Loan Referral Program
The terms below and those set forth in Part II govern your participation in Pioneer Finance, Loan Referral Program described below. The Loan Referral Program is open to any consumer who registers on Pioneer’s website and who resides in New Zealand.
Eligible Loan Referrers are limited to refer friends, colleagues, family members, and other people they (collectively, the “Eligible Loan Recipient(s)”) believe may be interested in applying for a personal loan. Pioneer Finance reserves the right to disqualify anyone from participating in the Loan Referral Program at any time. The Eligible Loan Referrers will NOT
receive a Loan Referral Bonus for referrals for any other Pioneer Finance products. Anyone who violates these terms and conditions is ineligible for payment of any bonus.
To receive credit for a referral under the Loan Referral Program, Eligible Loan Referrers must send their unique referral link to an Eligible Loan Recipient, the Eligible Loan Recipient must use their Eligible Loan Referrer’s unique referral link within 120 days after receipt of the Eligible Loan Referrer’s unique referral link, and the Eligible Loan Recipient must meet the terms and conditions of the specific promotional campaign associated with the unique referral link that was used for the referral. Further, in order for the Eligible Loan Recipient to receive their Loan Welcome bonus for a Pioneer Personal Loan, the loan must still be an active loan in good standing ninety (90) days after the disbursement date. If the Eligible Loan Recipient uses the Eligible Loan Referrer’s unique referral link and meets the terms and conditions of the specific promotional campaign associated with that unique referral link, Pioneer Finance or its designee shall pay to:
(a) the Eligible Loan Referrer, a referral bonus into a nominated New Zealand Bank account in the referrers name (Providing at the time of payment the referrer does not have a loan in arrears with Pioneer Finance. Should this be the case the referral bonus will be offset against the arrears on the referrers account)
(b) the Eligible Loan Recipient, will not be charged a loan establishment fee. Only one Loan Referral Bonus and one Loan Welcome Bonus will be awarded for each referred Eligible Loan Recipient, regardless of whether the Eligible Loan Recipient takes out multiple Eligible Loans. Further, and notwithstanding the above, the following additional restrictions shall apply. An Eligible Loan Referrer will not earn a Loan Referral Bonus if the Eligible Loan Recipient has or had an existing funded Pioneer loan account, or if the Eligible Loan Recipient does not use the unique referral link provided by the Eligible Loan Referrer.
If the Eligible Loan Recipient already has a Pioneer loan account, is on our opt-out list, the Eligible Loan Recipient may not be sent an email. We cannot disclose to you any information about funded loans opened by any Eligible Loan Recipients you refer to us. Participation in the Loan Referral Program serves as a one-time limited waiver of privacy rights by both parties, whereby each may become aware of the presence of an account relationship with Pioneer Finance.
