Rules

Gandi’s sponsorship program rules (the “Rules”) apply to referral programs that are administered exclusively by Gandi.

By accepting and sharing your referral code or by registering with a referral code, you agree to abide by these Rules.

Gandi reserves the right to verify any information concerning the identity of any participant in the referral program. Any person who has provided a fraudulent or incorrect identity, profits from the use of multiple accounts, or more generally violates the Rules, may be excluded from Gandi’s current or future referral program, may lose or withdraw from any benefit obtained through the program, or even have his or her account deactivated.

Who can refer friends?

All Gandi customers are eligible for the “Refer a friend” program.

By sharing your referral link, you can enjoy certain benefits according to the terms and conditions detailed in the Rules and Regulations.

Who can receive a referral?

You can refer/invite any person of legal age in his/her country of residence who is not yet a Gandi customer (herein after the “referred friend”).

How can I benefit from the advantages of the “Refer a friend” program as an existing Gandi customer?

In order for you to benefit from the advantages of the “Refer a friend” program, your referred friends must have completed all of the following steps:

  1. They have created an Organization via the referral link

  2. They have subscribed to one or more Gandi service via this Organization in the navigation session they opened directly by clicking on the referral link with a minimum order total of 3 euros including VAT (or an equivalent amount rounded up in any of the currencies accepted by Gandi)

What are the benefits of the “Refer a friend” program for those who refer friends?

For each referred friend that has fulfilled the above conditions, with the exception of the 3rd referred friend, you will receive an e-mail from us with a €5 voucher or an equivalent rounded up amount in one of the currencies accepted by Gandi.

The €5 voucher can be (i) used directly by the referrer to subscribe to a service or purchase a product on Gandi’s website, or (ii) transferred to a third party. Only one €5 voucher can be used per order (valid on an order equal to or greater than €5.00 including VAT). This €5 voucher may not be combined with other vouchers or other current promotions on Gandi’s Website, such as Registry promotions on a given extension.

For the 3rd referred friend, you will receive by e-mail a promo code and a link to an order form for a Gandi t-shirt that is only offered as part of the “Refer a friend” program. This form will allow Gandi to forward the order to our partner, tshirtstore.

The voucher for a Gandi t-shirt can be (i) used directly by the original customer, or (ii) transferred to a third party.

You can only receive one voucher per sponsored person. If the person that you are referring has already registered as a Gandi customer, you will not be able to obtain any additional bonus.

How can I enjoy the benefits of the “Refer a friend” program as a referred friend?

1. The referred friend accesses Gandi’s website (https://shop.gandi.net) from the link provided by the referrer. The link provided by the sponsor includes the following benefits if accessed within 7 days:

  • a 75% off promo code for 6 months of hosting at Gandi (*), and

  • a 20% off promo code on the purchase or transfer of a domain name (cannot be combined with any other promotion and not applicable to premium domain names).

  1. The referred friend creates an account at Gandi, and then subscribes to one or more services.

  2. In the event that the referred friend has not used the above benefits during its first purchase, the referred friend receives promo codes by e-mail corresponding to the unused benefits. These promo codes are valid for one week, starting from the send date of the email.

(*) A Simple Hosting instance of size S+ for 6 months. The promo code can be used for the purchase or the renewal of the instance.
