The IP Pilot’s referral program is an opportunity for you to support your peers in their data-backed business development endeavors and be rewarded with up to 6 months of extension to your firm’s current active IP Pilot subscription if they successfully sign up with us.
For each successful referral, your firm receives up to 6 months of free access to IP Pilot, depending on the size of the firm you refer to us. The firm size is estimated based on the number of IP Professionals. The reward calculation is as follows:
1-5 Patent or Trademark professionals = 1 month of free subscription
6-10 Patent or Trademark professionals = 2 months of free subscription
11-20 Patent or Trademark professionals = 3 months of free subscription
21- 35 Patent or Trademark professionals = 4 months of free subscription
36-50 Patent or Trademark professionals = 5 months of free subscription
51-100+ Patent or Trademark professionals = 6 months of free subscription
If the referred firm subscribes for IP Pilot Patents and IP Pilot Trademarks, the subscription extension will be estimated based on the size of the largest department of the referred firm. For example, if there are more than 100 patent professionals in the firms you referred to us and only 5 trademark professionals, we will use the number of patent professionals to calculate the duration of the subscription extension.
At the same time, if a your firm has a subscription to both IP Pilot Patents and IP Pilot Trademarks, then the subscription extension for a successful referral will apply only to one of the two. Of course, you as a referrer are free to select whether to extend the subscription to one element or to the other.
You are also free to pass your reward to its full extent to your peer/peer’s firm.
Rewards have no monetary value and cannot be redeemed for cash.
To refer a peer, all you need to do is fill out the form above using the same email address that is registered with your existing IP Pilot user account. This is to ensure the referral is properly tracked. You also ought to get prior consent from your peer to share his/her contact information with us.
Alternatively, you can introduce a peer to your IP Pilot’s accounts manager via email.
We will send you a confirmation e-mail and get in touch with your referee to offer a demo and free trial access to IP Pilot. We will not use the contact details you provided for any further marketing or promotional communication.
You can refer your friends, partners, or colleagues working in other firms within the same industry (i.e., lP/patent law firms or firms providing IP-related services). You cannot refer yourself or your colleagues working in the same firm as you.
For your firm to earn a subscription extension, a referred person or his/her firm must purchase the yearly IP Pilot subscription of at least 2,000€ in value. At the same time, a referred person or his/her firm should not have previously purchased a subscription to IP Pilot (also Patent-Pilot) or made a 14-days trial.
It is also essential that you, as a referrer, are a current active user of IP Pilot who received access to the tool through an ongoing subscription purchased by a firm where you are employed.
We will send you an e-mail confirming the receipt of your referral. We will also notify you when your referred peer makes a purchase decision. Please note that the entire process may take between two to six months.
If the peer or peer’s firm purchases our tool, we will provide you with further information about how your firm can receive a reward.
You can contact us by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to receive updates about your referral’s status anytime too.
