The Company operates a referral service called Passing Leads. Generally, the purpose of Passing Leads is to connect professional individuals to one another so they may provide referrals. Passing Leads members use Passing Leads to refer potential clients to other members.
If the potential client becomes a client of the member to whom the client was referred then the referring member receives a percentage of the fee. Likewise, the Company receives a percentage of the fee for establishing the relationship. Member, believing that it would be beneficial to Member's professional interests, wishes to become a member of Passing Leads. As such, the Company and Member are entering into this Agreement to set forth the understanding between the parties with respect to Member's participation in Passing Leads.
Accordingly, in consideration of this Preamble (which is a material part of this Agreement) and the mutual promises hereinafter set forth, the parties, intending to be legally bound, agree as follows:
Company will provide a web based service for Member to gain access to information about other members/referral sources.
Company may terminate Member's participation in Passing Leads at any time and for any reason, or no reason at all.

Member is solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of any password issued to Member by the Company. Member is responsible for any and all activities occurring under Member's account. Member will take reasonable steps to prevent security breaches and will immediately notify the Company of any security breach known to Member.

Member acknowledges that Member has no right to or interest in the web based service or any other software or information the Company may provide in connection with this Agreement.
Member will pay to Company, within fifteen (15) days of Member's receipt, ten percent (10%) of any and all fees collected from Member's clients who were referred through Passing Leads.
If Member refers a client to another Passing Leads member, and that member collects fees from the client, then Member will receive five percent (5%) of any fees collected by the other member. Member will be paid the above fees only if and when Company receives payment in connection with the transaction.
Payment to Member may be directly deposited into a confirmed bank account or a Member may choose to be paid by check, in which case an additional five dollar ($5.00) check fee shall be charged by Company and taken out of the payment.
If Member does not make a payment to the Company when due, the Company may charge interest on the past due amount at a rate of up to 21% but not less than nine percent (9%), compounded annually.
Company makes no guarantee that participation in Passing Leads will result in any benefit to Member. Company does not guarantee that Member will receive any referrals, leads, sales or results of any type by participating in Passing Leads. Member may receive zero referrals for services throughout Member's participation in Passing Leads. If a referral does occur and lead to a transaction, the Company has no control over the quality, safety or legality of the product or service sold, and does not become involved in the transaction in any way. Therefore, Company does not warrant or guarantee the adequacy of any work product or service provided by Member or any other members of Passing Leads.
Passing Leads understands professional obligations to privacy and confidentiality of client information. To work within these different regulations your account will have confidential options to maintain the integrity of your profession. Below is an outline how your account setting will function to work within your professional regulations so client or patient information remains private while still allowing you to participate in the “Loops”, a face to face networking organization which uses the Passing Leads electronic management software.
Is designed for those in professions who cannot disclose whether or not a specific individual has become a client or patient and cannot disclose sale amounts for specific referrals.
Upon receiving a referral from a business member in your group, standard service industries eventually indicate if a referral resulted in a sale or did not pan out. Moreover, in lieu of completing or declining a referral, you will simply “close it” which does not allow anyone to know the outcome of the referral sent to you, keeping it confidential. You will however, have the option to report your sales numbers at the time of your choosing by clicking on the ‘report revenue’ button in your account activity. Any amounts reported here will not be tied to any specific referral or client, as it will remain anonymous, but still allows you to report sales to the group and for your own personal ROI tracking.
Most professionals who need to maintain a certain level of confidentiality, this option will work for you.
If you believe that your profession needs to be set with this confidential option please contact us via email@example.com or by using the UserVoice feedback button on the bottom of the site at passingleads.com and we can put this into effect before you join your Loop referral group of professionals.
If you need further validation, you may request a demo of the confidential process and we would be happy to assist in answering any questions you may have in order for you to verify and meet your professional regulations to participate. Email firstname.lastname@example.org and our team will be with you soon.
