Through L’Occitane’s Refer a Friend program (“Program”), VIPs may refer up to 3 Friends (as defined below) who will then be eligible to receive a free gift from L’Occitane. VIPs do not need to refer 3 friends to redeem the gift.
To participate, click on the link in your special gift offer email from L’Occitane and follow the on-screen instructions to refer up to three (3) friends and/or also get a free gift for yourself. Referrals must be made by 11:59 p.m. ET on September 8, 2017 unless otherwise extended by L’Occitane. Your referred friends will receive an email with a unique link and instructions to claim their free gift by 11:59 p.m. ET on October 2, 2017. Referred friends will not be able to receive the referral email if they have previously unsubscribed from L’Occitane’s newsletter or marketing communications.
L’Occitane (sometimes also referred to herein as “we”) reserves the right at any time to modify or discontinue the Program, either temporarily or permanently (or any part thereof), with or without notice. L’Occitane will not be liable to you or the referred party in the event of any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Program.
L’Occitane may, at any time, terminate, alter or modify the Program and/or these terms and conditions without any further obligations. We will provide you written notices via email or a notice posted on https://www.loccitane-sharethelove.com/ should we terminate, alter or modify the Program and/or these terms and conditions. “Terms and Conditions” shall refer to these terms and conditions, as they are modified by L’Occitane in its sole and absolute discretion.

Employees, officers and representatives of L’Occitane, its parent or affiliated companies, distributors, suppliers, subsidiaries, retailers, advertising/promotion agencies, and members of the immediate family (mother, father, brothers, sisters, sons, daughters and spouse, regardless of where they reside) and household members of each such employee, whether or not related, are not eligible to participate.

How to Be a L’Occitane Advocate
The Program is only open to the people who receive the “Referring Friend” (1st Gen) email, sent by L’Occitane. You only may refer Friends by following a link from the email, which will contain a PIN unique to the invited user. No purchase is necessary to participate in the Program.
VIPs can only get to the Program site by following the link from the Referring Friend email sent by L’Occitane. VIPs should only invite people to participate in the Program who are not current L’Occitane subscribers (“Friends”). After you provide your friends’ email addresses, L’Occitane will send each of them invitation emails, provided that the email address has not opted out of receiving emails from L’Occitane. The invitation email that goes to the Friends (2nd Gen) doesn’t identify the email address of Advocate (referring friend), only the Advocate’s first and last names.
The unique link in your email will expire, and your email to the referred Friend will indicate the expiration date of the unique link. The offer may expire and/or change at any time in L’Occitane’s sole discretion.
VIPs can refer up to 3 Friends and an email address only may be used one time. However, you may not use spam, automated programs or send unsolicited emails to persons you do not personally know or have direct, voluntary two-way communications with. You may not collect referrals by posting the invite on message boards or other online venues. In addition, you may not post your unique link on any of L’Occitane’s social media sites.
How to Redeem Your Free Gift Offer and Bounce Back
