Upon receiving a Referral Form, RollWorks will send an email to Company to accept or reject the Referral as a potential Qualified Referral within ten (10) business days (silence shall not be deemed acceptance).

Company is solely responsible for making any required disclosures to Referrals under applicable laws, rules and regulations about Company’s receipt of Referral Fees from NextRoll.
2.2 Referral Fees.
