Recruit a friend - inviting your alt(s)?

I’m unclear on some of the rules for the buddy invite program - on the one hand, the rules state:

The Recruitment Program is intended to encourage players to invite new players to join EVE Online as well as reap rewards for controlling multiple accounts.

But on the other:

Existing accounts can only be recruited if they are not linked to any Recruiter accounts.

And:

Abusing the Recruitment Program (such as by creating multiple accounts that are discarded later to farm rewards) is considered an exploit and will not be tolerated.

So, can I create a new alt account, invite it with my main, upgrade it to Omega and get the rewards? Can I do this multiple times? When is it okay and when is it not? Can I use the alt(s) as e.g. an Alpha scanning alt or a hauler after the Omega lapses? If I only use them occasionally, is that considered “discarding to farm the rewards”?

Can I get some clarification here?
