By participating in the HairMax Referral Program through Refersion Inc. (“Program”), you agree with the following terms and conditions set forth in this agreement (the “Agreement”). Please read the entire Agreement. By submitting the online application, you are agreeing that you have read and understand the terms and conditions of this Agreement, and that, if we accept your application, you agree to be legally responsible for each and every term and condition. Please note that throughout this Agreement, "we," "us," "our" and “HairMax” refer to Lexington International, LLC (d/b/a HairMax), and "you," "your," and "yours" refer to the Affiliate.
1. Program Overview
The HairMax Referral Program is designed for the following industries and professionals: Hair Salons, Hair Stylists/Barbers, Health/Beauty Salons, Anti-Ageing Clinics, Laser Hair Therapy Clinics, Dermatologists, Trichologists, Hair Transplant Surgeons, and other related industries and professionals. If you would like to participate as an Affiliate in the Program but your industry or profession is not listed, please contact us.
When referring HairMax to your clients or customers, you should be confident that our products are the very best on the market. We have conducted 7 clinical trials with 460 participants, with an over 90% success rate! This means that while HairMax laser therapy devices are effective for most people, it will not work for everyone. Most HairMax users will experience an overall improvement in scalp health, an increase in density and fullness and a reversal of their hair loss and thinning.
We created the Program to expand the reach of our marketing efforts and work with industry professionals, so that more people can benefit from HairMax.
To be accepted and approved into our Program, you will need to provide certain information and details, including your license number, tax ID and/or other information regarding you and your business as we may request, as well as your PayPal account information for commission payment processing. We may also require phone conversations with our staff during the approval process. We reserve the right to reject any applicant to the Program, and once approved, to terminate your continued participation in the Program.
Upon your approval to the Program, we provide you with brochures and/or other marketing materials that will contain your unique Discount Code (described below). The Discount Code will provide a 15% discount on orders for HairMax products made by your referrals through our website, www.HairMax.com, or by calling our toll-free number 1 800 9Regrow (1-800-973-4769). The Discount Code will also enable us to track your 15% commission on such referral orders, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
We will pay you earned commissions that are attributable to you on a monthly basis via PayPal, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
It is important that you educate and familiarize yourself with HairMax products prior to referring HairMax to your clients or customers. As an Affiliate, we expect you to follow FTC guidelines, have integrity when dealing with your clients and/or customers, always communicate only true and accurate information, and comply with all laws. In this regard, you are prohibited from making any claims regarding HairMax products beyond those made by HairMax available at www.HairMax.com or what is contained in the marketing materials we provide to you.
HairMax will attribute referrals to you based on a unique discount code that we will provide to you (the “Discount Code”). Your referrals must use the Discount Code when placing orders with HairMax, either online at www.HairMax.com or by calling our toll-free number 1 800 9Regrow (1-800-973-4769).
HairMax uses the Refersion affiliate tracking system platform to track all referral purchases of HairMax products and attribute commissions to the Affiliate. The Refersion platform is owned by Refersion, Inc.
When a referral completes a purchase on www.HairMax.com or by calling our toll-free number 1 800 9Regrow (1-800-973-4769) and uses the Discount Code, the Refersion platform will automatically track that sale and attribute it to your account. If a referral does not use the Discount Code when placing an order with HairMax, the order will not be attributable to you and you will not receive a commission.
HairMax will pay you a commission on products purchased by your referrals that use the Discount Code, according to the designated payment schedule of 15% of the Net Sales price. Commission is calculated on the Net Sales price for which we have received payment in full, less any discounts, returns, credits, taxes and/or shipping fees.
HairMax uses the Refersion affiliate tracking system to tabulate and track sales and commission payments due to our affiliates after the tracking process and purchases are completed. Through the Refersion website, you will have access to information we use to determine commissions we owe you.
Your earned referral commission will be paid monthly, in accordance with our commission payment policy. All earned referral commissions will be paid to you via PayPal in US Dollars. Throughout your participation in the Program, you must maintain your PayPal account and provide us with current details as we may request from time to time. If this Agreement terminates, any earned commission due at that time will be held for a reasonable time (not more than 6 months) to ensure that the correct amount is paid.
HairMax reserves the right to increase or decrease commission rates from time to time as it sees fit, and any such change will be posted on the Refersion website.
There is no maximum commission limit that you may earn. However, you may not earn commission on sales to yourself (i.e. the referral using the Discount Code must be a bona fide client or customer of yours).
You are only eligible to earn commissions while you are participating in the Program and your account is in good standing, all in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
4. Returns and Credits
If a referral returns a product, cancels an order or requests a chargeback on the purchase, you will not receive a commission on the applicable sale. If we have already paid you a commission on such a sale, the referral commission will be deducted from other commission that is currently due to you. If there is no commission due to you for a period of one (1) month, you will be billed for the respective amount.
5. Order Processing
We will be solely responsible for processing orders placed by customers that come through your referral and use the Discount Code. Order forms, payment, processing, delivery of the products, and handling all customer questions and requests, including cancellations and returns are our responsibility. Customers who buy from our website (or call our toll-free number) using the Discount Code will be considered our customers and will be subject to all our rules, policies and operating procedures.
We reserve the right to reject or cancel orders that do not comply with our rules, policies and operating procedures. You will not receive a commission for any such rejected/canceled order.
6. Promotional Activities
You are encouraged to promote our website and HairMax products in various acceptable ways such as through direct referrals, your website, recommendations, or offers through your newsletters to subscribers and clients, etc. You agree NOT to promote HairMax or our products through unsolicited emailing (spamming), or by listing the Discount Code on coupon or discount websites (e.g. www.retailmenot.com). If you violate this policy, we will terminate your participation in the Program immediately and you will forfeit any commissions for orders attributable to the Discount Code.
In furtherance of the foregoing, under no circumstances shall you send commercial electronic mail messages as defined in the Federal Spam Law, CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 (“Act”), with respect to the HairMax Program. HairMax reserves the right to collect, withhold, or cancel any and all compensation related to commercial electronic mail messages you send. You may send transactional or relationship messages as defined in the Act.

2) You are not responsive within a reasonable time period and after multiple attempts to make contact using the information we have on file for you.

If any of the above apply, then we reserve the absolute right to suspend you from the Program, reverse orders, modify payouts, set your commission to 0%, and/or immediately terminate your participation in the Program. We know that many violations are a result of automated processes; however, it is incumbent upon you to ensure that you have the appropriate checks and balances in place to address such issues proactively and to adhere to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
