Incent reserves the right to approve or refuse any other disbursement method requested by the Operator. Broker Sales Reps and Distributor Sales Reps can only receive cash rewards, commissions or bonuses using the debit card method. Cash rewards, commissions and bonuses offered through the Incent program will be forfeited if the Broker Sales Rep’s or Distributor Sales Rep’s employer doesn’t allow them to accept these offers from third party companies (such as Incent or a Producer). In some situations, the Producer offering cash rewards, commissions or bonuses through the KPFG Cash Back Platform may elect to distribute these offerings directly to the Broker Company or Distributor Company versus directly to the Distributor Sales Rep or Broker Sales Rep. Upon Incent fulfilling this requested option by the Producer, Incent takes no responsibility for the use of the cash rewards, commissions or bonuses by the Broker Company or Distributor Company.
