Qualified Referral A “Qualified Referral” is a referral that fulfills all conditions set below:
Acceptance of a referral by Nord as a Qualified Referral is based upon verification that the Referred Customer is legitimate (i.e., meet requirements indicated in these Terms and comply with all applicable laws). Nord reserves the right to not accept a referral for any reason at any time. We are not obligated to, and will not release to the Referrer reasons why a referral has not been deemed as a Qualified Referral.
Rewards Referrers will receive a one month extension to their current VPN subscription for each Qualified Referral (“Reward”). After the purchase is completed, a Referred Customer will also receive one month extension to the purchased subscription. Rewards cannot be exchanged for cash and the value of a reward will not be included in any refunds for NordVPN services..

If you are participating in such a testing campaign of the Program, your participation shall be subject to these Terms.
Please note that the Reward of the testing campaign may differ and include a monetary bounty. The Reward of the testing campaign will be specified in the initial testing campaign offer. In cases when the Reward is taxable (depending on the local tax laws applicable to the Referrer), the Referrer shall be solely responsible for reporting the Reward to responsible authorities and/or paying any associated tax, levy, or similar contribution that would result from the Reward payment in his/her favor based on these Terms (if needed).

Referrers may not enter with multiple or fake email addresses or accounts, use fictitious identities to participate in the Program or receive the Reward. Nord may prohibit the Referrer from participating in the Program or receiving the Reward, in Nord’s sole discretion, if Nord determines that such Referrer is attempting to undermine the fairness, integrity or legitimate operation of the Program in any way by cheating, hacking, deception, or any other unfair practices or violates these Terms in any way.
