1.REFERRAL PROGRAM RULES AND CONDITIONS
In order for a new user to be registered as a Referral, the following technical requirements must be met:

In the event that these technical requirements are met and the new Referral's lands and registers at the Site through the User’s link, the new Referral will be recorded in the Photo Journalist database as the User’s Referral and will be included in the Referral statistics for the purpose of tracking site use and computing remuneration.
