General rules:

The FAIS Act states that a person who is not an authorised Financial Services Provider (FSP), accredited or is not a mandated representative of a FSP is not permitted to give advice on financial products or provide any financial intermediary services to any other person.

No referrer is allowed to give advice or intermediary services in respect of any financial service including but not limited to insurance, to prospective policy holders or act as an in-between insurance agent in any way.

Insurance law prohibits inducement and therefore no Referrer may offer a referee an incentive to become a policy holder with us. Therefore a referrer may not bring any prospective policy holder under the impression that he/she may be obliged in any way to take out a policy with us.

You must always act in accordance with the Terms and Conditions as set out above.

We will not be liable for any illegal or unlawful actions or misrepresentations made by the Referrer to the Referee in respect of this service or any Conscious Lifestyle Collective website product. The referrer is not mandated to act as a representative, agent or authorised to incur any obligations or liabilities on our behalf or to give any warranties, representations or undertakings of any nature on our behalf.
