Section 7 – Cooling Off Period

(7a) The Federal Trade Commission has initiated a regulation to protect CUSTOMERS entitled “The Cooling-Off Period.” This regulation is designed to allow CUSTOMERS the opportunity to reconsider a purchase from a direct seller.

(7b) DISTRIBUTORS shall provide all CUSTOMERS with an official sales receipt which includes the DISTRIBUTOR’S name, address, telephone number, the date of the sale, a complete list of PRODUCTS sold, their prices, and the “The Cooling-Off Period” or cancellation notice information as applicable.

(7c) The COMPANY encourages DISTRIBUTORS to honor a request for a refund or PRODUCT exchange even if it is made more than three (3) BUSINESS days after purchase.

Section 9 – Initial Purchase Guarantee

(9a) All DISTRIBUTORS have thirty (30) days to return the Initial Order purchase under the COMPANY’S 100% satisfaction guarantee. The COMPANY will refund the net purchase price and applicable tax amount less shipping charges. All PRODUCT must be returned in resalable condition to the COMPANY in order to receive the refund.

Returned PRODUCT must be sent through a form of delivery that can be traced (e.g., UPS) and must be received within seven (7) days of contacting the COMPANY. Upon receipt, the return will be noted and a refund will be issued to the DISTRIBUTOR within thirty (30) days. Any additional orders made within thirty (30) days of the Date of Sign-up will be subject to all standard return Policies. This Initial-Order guarantee also applies to CUSTOMERS who purchase PRODUCT directly from the COMPANY.

Section 10 – Refund Policy

(10a) In order for a DISTRIBUTOR to obtain a refund for returned PRODUCT, the DISTRIBUTOR must do the following:

(10ai) obtain a return merchandise authorization number, which is provided by the COMPANY to track the return of PRODUCT and is valid for thirty (30) days;

(10aii) be able to provide verification of the original orders, receipts, or proofs of purchase; and

(10b) All PRODUCT returns must be made within sixty (60) days of purchase. Returned PRODUCT must be unopened, unaltered, resalable and unexpired as determined by the COMPANY and must include current labels and intact seals.

All shipping or courier costs for the return of PRODUCT will be borne solely by the DISTRIBUTOR. Any damage or loss that occurs to returned PRODUCT during shipping will be the responsibility of the DISTRIBUTOR. Should the PRODUCT arrive at the COMPANY damaged (thereby rendering it non-resalable), the COMPANY will reject the shipment. It is recommended that a reliable, traceable courier service be used for shipping. Partial case returns will not be accepted or refunded.

PRODUCT sent to the COMPANY without prior authorization will not qualify for a refund and will be returned to the DISTRIBUTOR at the DISTRIBUTOR’S expense.

A CUSTOMER may return PRODUCT to the DISTRIBUTOR who is then responsible for issuing a refund to the CUSTOMER. CUSTOMERS who order directly from the COMPANY will need to obtain a return merchandise authorization number from the COMPANY and return the PRODUCT following the return procedures outlined above.

Extension of the refund policy as required by applicable law, or instances in which DISTRIBUTOR misconduct, misrepresentation, or other extenuating circumstances necessitates a refund in excess of the stated refund policy, will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Acceptable refund alternatives include, but are not limited to, the following: the COMPANY credit, bank check, bank transfer, or credit card charge-back. The actual form of refund will be based upon local payment procedures and the original form of payment.

Section 12 – Taxation

(12a) If a DISTRIBUTOR has registered as a withholding agent through a local sales tax agency and submitted a “Sales and Use Tax Exemption Certificate” or equivalent document to the COMPANY, the collection of sales tax, value-added tax, goods and services tax, indirect tax, or any other sales tax equivalent will be the responsibility of the DISTRIBUTOR.

Section 14 – Modifications By The COMPANY

(14a) The COMPANY reserves the right to make any modifications to the AGREEMENT, provided that the modifications are communicated by the COMPANY to the DISTRIBUTOR at least thirty (30) days prior to taking effect.

The DISTRIBUTOR is deemed to have accepted the modification to the AGREEMENT if the DISTRIBUTOR engages in any DISTRIBUTOR BUSINESS, or renews its DISTRIBUTORSHIP.

Section 15 – Waiver

(15a) Any waiver by the COMPANY of a DISTRIBUTOR’S breach of an AGREEMENT provision must be in writing and will not be construed as a waiver of any subsequent or additional breach by the DISTRIBUTOR.

Section 16 – Severance
