  2. To make referrals and generate rewards accordingly, we will provide you with a Personalised code which you can provide to potential Referral Customers, for them to register their interest in our products. Rewards will only be issued if the Referral Customer submits the Personalised code through one of our website submission forms or it is provided to the Octopus Electric Vehicles team when the Referral Customer first reaches out to discuss vehicle options.
  3. You and the people you refer to us will not be eligible for a reward under the referral scheme if:
