Promo codes/coupons are non-transferable and non-refundable.
- Suspension for non-payment: If you or your sponsor fail to make payment for a Program by the due date for payment (based on your selected payment option), then we may, in our sole discretion, remove you from the Program or suspend your participation in the Program.
