C. Individual Members may elect to participate in our Refer A Friend Bonus ("RAFB") program. RAFB allows an existing Individual Member to contact one or more of their friends or other persons who are eligible for an Individual Membership (a "Friend"). Currently, our RAFB program allows an existing Individual Member to send a link (the "Link") to a Friend for the Friend to obtain an Individual Membership at a reduced price. If the Friend to whom the Link is sent becomes an Individual Member, and pays us the applicable reduced Membership Fee amount, then the pre-existing Individual Member who sent the Link receives a bonus. Currently the bonus is a free extension of the pre-existing Individual Member’ Membership for one month for each such new Individual Member enrolled using the Link sent to them by the pre-existing Individual Member.
D. You, as a User of our Site, may elect to provide us with a GMAIL® email address to be used by us to communicate with you (the User). If you do want us to communicate with you (the Individual Member) using GMAIL ®, it is our desire to make it as easy as possible for you to send RAFB Links to your Friends whose email address is contained in your GMAIL® Contact list. We offer this option so that you do not need to be burdened by manually typing in your Friend’s email address or going to your GMAIL contact list, finding the name of the Friend through whom you want to send a RAFB Link, copying the associated email address and then pasting it in to the "To" line. So that we are able to offer you the convenience of using your GMAIL® contact list:
We use a Service Provider (currently SocialInviter) so that when you go to the RAFB portion of our Site, you will be asked that our Site be allowed to access your GMAIL® Contact List. If you permit our Site to access your GMAIL® contact list, through SocialInviter you will be able to use GMAIL’s autocomplete function in GMAIL contacts as described below. You are also certainly free to decline access to your contact list, without any penalty, and send the RAFB Link to your Friend by either direct entry of your Friend’s email address or by copying and pasting your Friend’s email address in the GMAIL message you are composing.
We do not store ANY information obtained from your GMAIL®’s contact list in any format, whether it be print, electronic or on or in any other medium on our servers or anywhere else in our Company.
If you permit us to access your GMAIL® contact list, then you will be able to use the autocomplete function to easily enter your Friend’s email address by starting to spell your Friend’s name in the "To" section of the email you are composing.
Autocomplete in GMAIL® is likely already something you are familiar with. You would select compose (the way to begin composing an email in GMAIL®) to initiate sending your RAFB Link to the Friend to whom you want to send it.
In the "To" line in the blank GMAIL® message, you will begin to see the names in your GMAIL contact list by starting to type your desired Friend’s name based on the letter(s) of the alphabet you type. By way of example ONLY, if you have one Friend named James Smith and another Friend named John Doe, both of those names would appear as soon as you begin entered the letter "J" in the "To" line of the email (since they both begin with the letter "J"). You can then select the Friend to whom you want to send the RAFB Link, by clicking on that Friend’s name and the autofill function in conjunction with the information in your contacts will then enter the email address associated with the name of that Friend into the "To" portion of the email you are working on. We are sure you know that the more letters you type, the autofill process will narrow down the list of Friends based on the spelling of your Friend’s name. If your Friend has more than one email listed in your contacts then you can choose which email address or addresses to use and you can also pick multiple Friends to whom you wish to send a Link.
