Novo reserves the right to change the maximum number of Referral Bonuses at any time and for any reason in its sole and absolute discretion.
  • Each Novo Unique Referral Link is generated for a specific Referred User. Once the Novo Unique Referral Link has been used by a Referred User, Novo cannot reverse its use or application. Each Referred User may only use one Novo Unique Referral Link to enroll in a Novo account, regardless of whether the Referred User received or had access to multiple Novo Referral Unique Links from different Referring Users.
  • The Referral Program or Novo Unique Referral Link may not be transferred, sold, resold, or mass distributed.

6. Novo’s control of the program

Novo reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion to, terminate, suspend, or modify the Referral Program in whole or in part in any way and at any time without advance notice. Without limiting the foregoing, Novo may terminate or suspend the Referral Program for any Referring User if it finds or believes that the Referring User is manipulating or otherwise abusing the process, fairness, or integrity of the Referral Program or otherwise has become ineligible. Referral Bonuses earned through fraudulent activities or activities in violation of these Terms will be null and void and repayment may be requested by Novo.

The Referral Bonus is paid by Novo within 30 days of the Referred User meeting all Qualifications.
