DEFINITION OF TERMS
DPN Pty Ltd (ABN 94 630 700 186 Australian Credit Licence 514759)
A DPN client who voluntarily participates in the Referral Program by referring a Referral Lead.
A person who is not an existing client of DPN’s and not on the DPN database and who (a) has given his/her approval and whom the Referrer has referred through this Program; and (b) who provide details of their referrer to DPN in accordance with these Terms and Conditions. This Program is only valid for and open to Australian residents.
As part of the Referral Program, DPN clients can refer DPN and its services to their friends and family. This Referral Program is not to be used in the course of business. It is for family and friends of DPN’s clients who consent to being referred. Individuals who have not consented to being referred to these types of services by the Referrer must not be referred.
The referrer confirms that the person they are sending the invitation to is a family member or friend that they have a direct a relationship with, and that that person (the referral lead), has consented to receiving these types of messages, and that they indemnify the Promoter (DPN) against all claims.
To be eligible for a referral, the Referral Lead must:
- be aged 18 years or over;
- not be on DPN’s database prior to referral;
- not be not an employee, agent, representative or sales agent of DPN;
- meet minimum financial eligibility criteria (contact DPN at 1300 723 318 for criteria which is based on banks’ lending guidelines for the individual’s circumstances).
There are two (2) easy ways a Referrer can refer a Referral Lead:
- visit dpn.com.au/refer and follow the prompts to send them an email or;
- hand the Referral Lead a DPN Apprécier invitation.
Referrers can also call DPN on 1300 723 318 for more information.
By referring a Referral Lead, the Referrer consents to the Referral Lead providing their name to DPN, so that they can be identified as the Referrer for the purposes of this Program.
Due to privacy laws, DPN cannot collect or store personal information of Referral Leads from Referrers, and will only collect, store and use such details once they are provided to DPN by the Referral Lead. As such, the Referral Lead must contact DPN and indicate who they were referred by and what services they are interested in, before DPN can collect their details or record a Referral.
Referrers and Referral Leads are entitled to the following reward(s) if they meet the criteria stipulated below:
$50 Voucher Reward – Referrer only reward
DPN will send the Referrer a $50 voucher for every Referral Lead that meets face-to-face with a DPN Consultant for one of the following DPN services, and indicates who they were referred by prior to or at the meeting:
- finance only or;
- property (with or without finance).
The Referral Lead must provide their personal details, including their financial situation, prior to the face-to-face consultation to ensure they meet minimum financial eligibility criteria.
The $50 Voucher Reward is for Referrers only and will not be awarded to Referral Leads.
Vouchers are valid for 12 months and cannot be redeemed for cash. Limit of one voucher per Referral Lead. The exact voucher will be determined by DPN, however, it will be to the value of $50.
FINANCE SETTLEMENT REWARD OR PROPERTY SETTLEMENT REWARD
The first time a Referral Lead settles a loan or purchases a property with DPN, the Referrer and the Referral Lead will each receive a reward (once settlement is finalised, as outlined below). A Referrer can only receive one (1) reward in respect of each Referral Lead, regardless of how many loans that Referral Lead settles or how many properties that Referral Lead purchases with DPN (in excess of one (1)). In addition, the Referral Lead can also only receive (1) reward, regardless of how many loans the Referral Lead settles or how many properties the Referral Lead purchases with DPN (in excess of one (1)).
The nature and exact value of each reward will be determined by DPN, however, the reward will be valued between AU$50-$350.
Finance Settlement Reward:
The Referral Lead must take out a loan with DPN within six (6) months of first meeting with a DPN Consultant to remain valid, and if this does not occur, then the Referrer and the Referral Lead will not receive a reward. The offer is available subject to settlement of the Referral Lead’s loan organised through DPN. The reward will be sent once settlement of the loan has occurred.
Property Settlement Reward: The Referral Lead must complete an expression of interest and holding deposit to DPN within six (6) months of first meeting with a DPN Consultant to remain valid, and if this does not occur, then the Referrer and the Referral Lead will not receive a reward.
