The Ford Professional Service Network (the "PSN") is a loyalty program supported by Ford Motor Company of Canada, Limited ("Ford"). There is no charge to join the PSN, but membership in the PSN ("Membership") is by dealer invitation only and each PSN member ("Member") must be initially sponsored by a Ford or Lincoln dealership (the "Sponsoring Dealer"). Membership entitles a Member to receive certain one-time benefits and to earn Purchase Incentives towards its Purchase Targets (both as described below). Members meeting their Purchase Targets shall receive funds in the dollar amount equal to the Member's claimed Purchase Incentives (the "Rewards").
Membership is subject to these IRF Terms and Conditions, as they may be amended or updated from time to time
Membership is only open to an independent repair facility ("IRF") that meets the following eligibility criteria:
Without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing, the following are not eligible for Membership:
If you have multiple stores, each store must be sponsored individually. Membership and Rewards are not transferable to other businesses or individuals. There is no fee to apply for Membership.
A Sponsoring Dealer has provided you with its unique sponsor code (the "Sponsor Code"). To accept the Sponsoring Dealer's nomination and apply for Membership, you must submit the Sponsor Code, provide a previous invoice, complete the Independent Repair Facility Application Form and agree to these IRF Terms and Conditions. The Sponsoring Dealer must not charge you any fee for applying for Membership in the PSN.
Neither nomination by a Sponsoring Dealer nor application by an IRF shall constitute Membership in the PSN. Membership is subject to approval by Ford in its absolute discretion.
One-Time Network Benefits
Upon acceptance by Ford of your enrolment in the Network, you shall be provided with the following onetime benefits:
1. Welcome Point-of-Sale Kit ("Welcome POS Kit"). The Sponsoring Dealer will deliver the Welcome POS Kit to the address indicated on your Independent Repair Facility Application Form; and
2. Motorcraft Technical Service Information for all Ford vehicle lines for model years 1994-Current ("TSI Subscription"). The Sponsoring Dealer will provide you with login credentials that provide access to the TSI Subscription containing workshop manuals, wiring diagram manuals, powertrain control/emissions diagnosis manuals, technical service bulletins, field service action bulletins (including recalls) and more. The login credentials will be sent to the email address provided in your Enrolment Form. The TSI Subscription is available through motorcraftservice.com (the "Website"). Neither the Sponsoring Dealer nor Ford control the content of the Website or provide technical support for the Website. Professional online training modules may be available for purchase on the Website for an additional cost. If you already have access to the TSI Subscription from the Sponsoring Dealer or another Ford or Ford/Lincoln dealer through another Ford program, you will not receive a second TSI Subscription.
Welcome POS Kits will vary based on Members' sales histories.
Earning Purchase Incentives and Rewards
Members are entitled to earn certain purchase incentives (the "Purchase Incentives") if they meet or exceed purchase targets set by Ford (the "Purchase Targets" or "Targets") for Eligible Purchases (described below) based on sales transaction data.
Calculation of the Purchase Incentives is based upon the net price paid for the purchase of Ford, Motorcraft and Omnicraft parts (including accessories) at a Ford or Lincoln dealer in Canada (other than Ford collision parts, tires and core charges) ("Eligible Purchases") exclusive of any credits / rebates or other deductions and applicable taxes and/or fees.
The Purchase Incentives and Targets shall be set by Ford from time to time in its absolute discretion and shall vary based on your sales history. Purchase Incentives and Targets shall be made available to you and your Sponsoring Dealer at www.psnglobal.com (the "PSN Website").
The periods during which Eligible Purchases are applied to Purchase Targets (the "Program Period") shall be set by Ford from time to time in its absolute discretion and may vary between Members. Program Periods shall be made available to you and your Sponsoring Dealer at the PSN Website.
IRFs accepted into the PSN after the start date of a Program Period may earn Purchase Incentives for that Program Period provided they become Members by the last day of such Program Period.
Sales transaction data is based on the Sponsoring Dealer's sale prices.
Throughout the Membership, a Member's Eligible Purchases will be tracked by Ford through transaction data and applied towards the Member's Purchase Targets.
If and when you meet your Purchase Targets, you shall receive Rewards to be issued in a method of Ford's sole choosing.
(a) Each Member is assigned Purchase Targets determined by Ford based on historical sales transaction data and the characteristics of the Member. Ford, at its sole discretion, at any time, may modify and/or update the Purchase Targets.
(b) Members must make Eligible Purchases from a Ford or Lincoln dealership within the applicable Program Period. Members are not restricted to making Eligible Purchases from their Sponsoring Dealer and may make Eligible Purchases from all Ford or Lincoln dealers in Canada.
(c) Members receive credit for an Eligible Purchase towards their Purchase Targets when a Ford or Lincoln dealership processes or closes an invoice. If an invoice is opened at the end of a Program Period but closed during the next Program Period, the Member receives credit towards its Targets when the invoice is closed.
(d) Any parts that are returned will be deemed returned as the date of the actual physical return and the amount of such returned part will be automatically deducted from the Member's Eligible Purchases.
(e) While core charges will appear on invoices and are refundable, they are excluded from Eligible Purchases and will not count towards Purchase Incentives.
(f) Collision part purchases are not Eligible Purchases and will not be credited towards Members' Purchase Targets.
(g) Tire purchases are not Eligible Purchases and will not be credited towards Members' Purchase Targets.
(h) Members can only earn Purchase Incentives by making Eligible Purchases to meet Targets on the terms set out herein.
(i) When a Member has met its Purchase Targets, it will receive Rewards.
(j) Members must claim their Rewards through the PSNglobal.com website.
(k) Once claimed, Rewards will be paid by Ford in a method of Ford's sole choosing.
(l) Payment will be issued in the Member's registered business name.
(m) Rewards shall not exceed $5,000 per Program Period for any Member.
(n) Ford reserves the right to audit and verify all PSN purchase and sales data to determine eligibility.
(o) If Ford determines that that a Member has engaged in fraud or intentional misrepresentation all Purchase Incentives and Rewards shall be immediately cancelled, the Member will be expelled from the PSN and the Member shall be ineligible to participate in any future incentive programs supported by Ford.
(p) Ford, in its sole discretion, may amend these IRF Terms and Conditions, including, but not limited to: (i) Purchase Targets; (ii) Purchase Incentives and Rewards; (iii) Program Periods. Such changes shall be communicated to Members.
(q) Once a Member's Purchase Incentives for a Program Period have been calculated by Ford, Ford shall send the Member an email with instructions for claiming such Purchase Incentives. If Purchase Incentives are not claimed by the Member within forty five (45) days of receipt of such email (the "Redemption Period"), such Purchase Incentives shall lapse and be forfeited by the Member.
(r) A Member may apply to Ford to claim Purchase Incentives outside of the Redemption Period. Any such request must be sent by email to Ford at firstname.lastname@example.org (English) or RSP@fordhq.ca (French) within ninety (90) days of the end of the applicable Program Period. The Member must have a valid reason for not claiming their award within the Redemption Period. Ford will consider claims made beyond the Redemption Period on a caseby-case basis. Ford, at its sole discretion, will determine whether or not to allow a Member to claim Purchase Incentives outside of the Redemption Period.
(s) Ford reserves the right to periodically review and determine the eligibility of any Member or IRF applying to the PSN.
(t) A Member must be active in the PSN. To be an active Member, the Member must have logged into the PSNglobal.com website over a (1) one-year period. A Member that does not log into the PSNglobal.com website for a one (1) year period is subject to termination. Ford will make reasonable effort to notify the Member 60 days prior to termination for inactivity.
