All Health Therapies Affiliates are strictly prohibited from misrepresenting the opportunity plan as a “get- rich-quick” opportunity, and should not use fraud, coercion, harassment, or other means to force people to join as Affiliates’. Instead, they should focus their efforts on promoting the quality and features of the products.
Health Therapies Affiliates should ensure that facts, figures, or other information given out during presentations and seminars are completely true and accurate and should refrain from making any claims that they know may be untrue or liable to mislead. Similarly, they should not omit or disregard information that may be material.
For instance, if any Health Therapies Affiliates wishes to show prospective Affiliate’s the earning potential, they must keep past records of the maximum, minimum, mean, mode, and median earnings of the examples they wish to show.
As the only requirement for a prospective Affiliate to become an Affiliate of Health Therapies products is to request authorization from Health Therapies by completing an Affiliate Registration Form to signify his/her agreement to abide by the Rules of Conduct and the Code of Ethics, and the purchase of the Health Therapies starter kit.
These Rules of Conduct define the rights, duties, and responsibilities of an Affiliate. While the Rules primarily define relationships between Health Therapies and Affiliates, they also concern relationships among Affiliates. The Rules are designed to promote harmony among Affiliate’s and to preserve the benefits available to all Affiliates under the Health Therapies Marketing Plan.

- “Code of Ethics” means the Health Therapies Code of Ethics as set out in the Health Therapies Rules of

In the event an Affiliate’s spouse wishes to become an Affiliate, the spouse must be included in the Affiliate’s original registration form. However, only the Affiliate’s name will be used for bonuses/incentives and all correspondence. It is imperative that only this name (the Affiliate’s)
and not his/her spouse’s) and ID number be used for all Health Therapies forms and business transactions for accurate organizational records.
On the other hand, the spouse of an Affiliate may sign-up for a new distributorship. However, it must come under the wife’s or husband’s group. Spouses are strictly not allowed to register under a different group.
Affiliate’s may be granted to sole proprietorships, partnerships, and corporations. For such applications, a copy of the business registration or certificate of incorporation and a resolution duly signed by the partners or shareholders must be attached to the Affiliate Registration Form.

An Affiliate’s authorization is valid from the date of registration (upon acceptance by Health Therapies). However, an Affiliate is required to pay their annual membership fee of $29.95 to maintain their distributorship throughout the year.
Health Therapies discourages transferring from one sponsor to another. Hence no transfer of distributorship from one sponsor to another is allowed. However, Health Therapies may allow a transfer if in its opinion, the Affiliate’s sponsor, or any of his/her up-line (the Affiliate’s sponsor’s sponsor or above) has caused or contributed to the request for transfer by failing to meet all or any of the responsibilities of an Affiliate or sponsor or if an injustice has been imposed upon the Affiliate. Nevertheless, the transfer shall be to a sponsor next in line.
An Affiliate who has been inactive (no monthly personal sales) for 6 or more consecutive months may, subject to prior written approval of Health Therapies, terminate his/her distributorship and re-apply to become a new Affiliate under a new sponsor. However, Health Therapies may waive this 6-month inactivity requirement if in its opinion, the Affiliate’s sponsor or any of his/her up-line (the Affiliate’s sponsor’s sponsor or above) has caused or contributed to the resignation by failing to meet all or any of the responsibilities of a Affiliate or sponsor, if an injustice has been imposed upon the Affiliate or if the Affiliate’s sponsor has breached any of the terms and conditions of these Rules or the Code of Ethics.
Each Affiliate is an independent businessperson whose success and failure depends on his/her own efforts. As such:
- An Affiliate shall not represent that he/she has any employment, agency, joint venture, or partnership relationship with Health Therapies, and shall make this clear in all dealings with customers.
- An Affiliate shall not make any warranty or representation or statement or do any other acts in the name of or on behalf of Health Therapies and shall not in any way pledge the credit of Health Therapies.

- An Affiliate shall promptly notify Health Therapies of any actual, threatened, or potential infringement of any of Health Therapies’ Trademarks, which come to the Affiliate’s attention, and shall do all such things and execute all such deeds and documents as are reasonably necessary to assist Health Therapies in any action which Health Therapies may in its absolute discretion take to prevent or stop such infringement.
- An Affiliate shall keep all records of total income earned during a year and shall be responsible to personally submit such records and income tax payments as required by law.
Affiliates are not guaranteed any income or assured of success and an Affiliate will not gain any compensation from the simple recruitment of other An Affiliate. Success will only come from hard work and individual efforts accomplished by the sale of Health Therapies products and through the retail success of Health Therapies Affiliates sponsored. Under no circumstances shall Health Therapies be liable for any losses or claims of an Affiliate and/or his/her downlines which are in any way connected with Health Therapies products and/or the distribution thereof.

Affiliates shall comply with all laws, regulations, and codes of practice applying to the operation of their distributorships and shall not engage in any activity that effects the interests, image, or reputation of Health Therapies.
There is no ‘magic’ involved in the Health Therapies business or in any other business. Those who sponsor widely but who do not help those new Affiliate’s develop their business, achieve limited success. Therefore, a responsibility of sponsorship is to work with Affiliate’s sponsored, helping them learn the business and always encouraging them.
No Affiliate shall represent that there is an obligation to purchase products or that benefits may be derived solely from the purchase of products. Bonuses will only be realized through a Affiliates’s own retail sales of those whom the Affiliate’s has sponsored.
No Affiliate’s shall practice “forced,” “high pressure,” or “fraud” selling tactics, including offering lucky draws, the promise of free gifts, or discounts as an inducement to recruit other Affiliate’s into their network.
No Affiliate shall produce, sell, or distribute copies of literature or programs other than those provided by Health Therapies.

Health Therapies may suspend (bonuses and any other incentives of the violating Affiliate shall be withheld during the period of suspension, when investigation of the violation is being carried out) or terminate without notice and with immediate effect, the distributorship of any Health Therapies Affiliate for any non-compliance, breach and/or violation of any of the Rules of Conduct and/or Code of Ethics or for any reason whatsoever.
If an Affiliate is found to be in non-compliance, breach and/or violation of any of the Rules and/ or Code of Ethics or for any reason whatsoever, the Affiliate shall not be entitled to any bonuses and/or other incentives as Health Therapies may in its sole discretion decide.
In addition to Health Therapies’ rights under Rules of Conduct, Health Therapies further reserves the right to take any other course of action against any Affiliate who has breached or violated any of the Rules of Conduct and/or Code of Ethics. Health Therapies shall not be liable for any amount whatsoever because of suspension or termination of the distributorship of an Affiliate in accordance with these Rules.

All communications, notices and facsimile transmissions sent pursuant to this Agreement shall be addressed to the address as set out in the Affiliate Registration Form, and shall be deemed properly given to the party on the 3rd day after the envelope containing the same was sent by registered or recorded delivery post or courier to that address or on the date of transmission by facsimile, as the case may be, provided in the case of the latter that a confirming copy is sent by registered or recorded delivery post or courier to that address within twenty-four (24) hours after transmission.
The failure of Health Therapies to exercise any right hereunder shall not be deemed to be a waiver of such right. Any waiver made in writing in respect of any breach of a provision hereof shall be valid but shall not be construed to be a waiver of any succeeding breach of such a provision or any other provision or a waiver of the provision itself.
The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these Rules shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision, which shall remain in full force and effect.
These Rules take effect immediately (on Affiliate’s registration date), and all Affiliates are deemed to have notice of, and are bound by these Rules.

All Affiliates are Independent Contractors engaged in their own separate business pursuits. Affiliates are not to be considered purchasers of a franchise, nor does the Agreement between Health Therapies and its Affiliates create an employer/employee relationship, agency, partnership, or joint venture. Affiliates are strictly prohibited from stating or implying, whether orally or in writing that their relationship is any other than as outlined above. Each Affiliate shall hold Health Therapies harmless from any claims, damages or liabilities arising out of the affiliates business practices.
Affiliates have no authority to bind Health Therapies to any obligation. Each Affiliate is encouraged to set up his/her own hours and to determine his/her own methods of sales if he/she complies with the terms of the Agreement.
Affiliates will perform all their business activities in a professional and ethical manner, which will enhance the Affiliates reputation and the positive reputation of Health Therapies. Affiliates will not engage in any conduct that would negatively reflect on Health Therapies or any other Affiliates image.
Affiliates will be courteous and respectful of every person contacted including employees and executives of the corporate office of Health Therapies and will conduct their Affiliates status in a way as to respect the products and professionalism of Health Therapies and its other Affiliates. An Affiliate will under no circumstance disparage or infringe upon the Health Therapies name or reputation in connection with the marketing of Health Therapies products or misappropriate any confidential or proprietary information or trade secrets (including Affiliate name and address lists) for use by the Affiliate or others.
Health Therapies supplier(s) maintain insurance to protect Health Therapies and its Independent Affiliates against product liability claims. The supplier’s insurance contains a “Vendor Endorsement” which extends coverage to Independent Affiliates, if they are marketing Health Therapies products in accordance with the company Policies and Procedures, product label(s), product literature as well as applicable laws and regulations.
An example of liability for improper use is a violation of the health claims restrictions or usage recommendations. Health Therapies supplier(s) insurance covers only those uses, and purposes specifically set forth on the container or in Health Therapies literature. An Affiliate who attempts to change or modify the label or packaging, who misrepresents the product(s) or who makes claims other than those set forth in Health Therapies literature is depriving himself/herself of the protection afforded by the Vendor Endorsement.
No Affiliate is required to purchase any Health Therapies products, services, or programs.
Health Therapies provides the following fulfillment to its Affiliates; a personalized marketing website that includes web hosting. Health Therapies also provides a back office that enables the Affiliate to manage his/ her business, view online tools, review the calculation and payment of commissions, and access previous records of Affiliate purchases.
When the elects to enroll with the Health Therapies back office at a cost of twenty-nine dollars and ninety-five cents ($29.95 USD), the Affiliate will have unlimited access to his/her back office for one year. This amount includes a non-refundable set-up fee of ten dollars ($10.00 USD). The remaining amount of nineteen dollars and ninety-five cents ($19.95 USD) will be prorated over one year.
All Affiliates are authorized to sell Health Therapies products and to participate in the Health Therapies Compensation Plan. All Health Therapies Affiliates may sponsor new Affiliates.
Affiliates must be of legal age in their country or state of residence to operate a Health Therapies entity.
Each participant or legal entity is limited to one distributorship. Spouses may each have their own distributorship with Health Therapies. Spouses must be in the same line of sponsorship and a spouse may not be associated directly or indirectly with Affiliate positions in other downline organizations. The action of one spouse will be attributed to both spouses.
Corporations, limited liability companies, partnerships and/or trusts may become Affiliates ONLY when the completed Registration Form and Agreement is accompanied by notarized copies of the incorporation, articles of incorporation, articles of organization, partnership agreement or trust document or other charter or organic documents as filed with the state or organization (where applicable).
To ensure compliance with this Agreement, Affiliates must disclose a complete list of all directors, officers and shareholders involved in the corporation. That document is to be faxed or emailed to the Support Department of Health Therapies. Limited liability companies must disclose a complete list of all members, officers, and managers. Partnerships must disclose all general and limited partners. Trusts must disclose the trustee(s) and beneficiary/beneficiaries. Proof must be provided of a Federal Tax ID number and a copy of the annual certification from the Secretary of State issued in the state of incorporation, organization, and partnership registration. If any shareholder, partner, member, or manager of an affiliate is itself an entity, then the information required above for the Affiliate shall also be required for such shareholder, partner, member, or manager.
Shareholders, members, partners, beneficiaries and trustees, directors, and officers as applicable, agree to remain personally liable to Health Therapies and bound by all Policies and Procedures. A completed “Operating Under a Business Name” or DBA (Doing Business As) form must be on file with Health Therapies. In any Affiliate position involving the efforts of more than one individual, whether as a corporation, partnership or trust, the actions of one participant shall reflect on the distributorship. If one member is found to have violated the Terms and Conditions of the Policies and Procedures of Health Therapies then the distributorship, will be in violation.
A person or entity may not sign-up for as an Affiliate using a fictitious or assumed name or use the identity of another person or entities that will not be associated with the Affiliate position. No one may enter a Social Security Number or Tax Identification Number that was not assigned to the primary individual or entity on the distributorship.
All U.S. Affiliates are required by federal law to obtain a Social Security Number or Federal Identification Number and have it on file with Health Therapies. Health Therapies will use this number for all government reporting purposes.
Affiliates will be treated as Independent Contractors for all federal and/or state tax purposes.
As Independent Contractors, Affiliates will not be treated as employees, franchisees, joint ventures, partners, or agents with respect to the Internal Revenue Code, Social Security Act, Federal Unemployment Act, State Unemployment Act, or any other federal, state, or local statute, ordinance, rule, or regulation.
All Affiliates shall comply with all federal and state statutes and regulations and local ordinances and regulations concerning the operation of his/her business. All Affiliates are responsible.
for their own managerial decisions and expenditures, including all estimated income and self- employment taxes. At the end of each calendar year, Health Therapies will issue an IRS Form 1099 Misc. for non-employee compensation for Affiliates as required (at the time of this printing the law requires 1099’s only for annual income earned above six hundred dollars ($600.00) within a calendar year).
Since Affiliates are not Health Therapies employees, Health Therapies is not responsible for payment or co-payment of any employee benefits.
There are no exclusive territories for recruiting purposes, nor shall any Affiliate imply or state that he/she has any exclusive territory rights. There are no geographic limitations on Affiliate sponsoring except in those foreign countries that have not officially been opened by Health Therapies.
Health Therapies owns the worldwide distribution rights to the Health Therapies products and opportunity. We may elect to open certain countries from time to time and will grant Affiliates limited rights to sponsor in those countries. Affiliates shall not sponsor outside of our Opened Countries. To preserve our rights, Affiliates may never secure or attempt to secure approval for Health Therapies products or business practices, or internet domain names, or establish any kind of business or governmental contract on behalf of the Company.
Health Therapies operates under one of two (2) models in those countries in which we have chosen to conduct business:
- On the Ground (OTG). This is a fully operational business model. Products are properly labeled and legalized for resale in the country. Marketing material specific to the country is available for Affiliate residing in that country.
- Not For Resale (NFR). This is a business model of limited activity. Residents of an approved NFR market may enroll to purchase product for personal consumption/use only. They
may not sell, distribute, or gift the product in any way to persons outside their household. They purchase product from our U.S. or designated office and may receive bonuses in U.S. currency where allowable by law. They may furthermore sponsor and enroll other residents of an Opened Country, including both NFR and OTG countries.
To sponsor outside of your home country of enrollment, your distributorship must be in good standing; you must request, read, and comply with the Policies and Procedures and such other guides as we may have available for the Opened Country.
Affiliates compliance with this protects Health Therapies, and our collective ability to conduct business in selected countries. Violation of these policies may result in governmental regulatory action which may include severe fines, confiscation of property, closure of business operations, or even imprisonment.
Therefore, Affiliates may not engage in blind prospecting without prior written approval. Many countries have strict privacy laws that forbid blind solicitations. Also, many local laws forbid advertising for leads.
Affiliates shall not distribute Health Therapies sales tools which have not been approved for the country in which it is intended. Promotional statements from one country’s literature may not be appropriate or legal in another.
Affiliates are not restricted from selling the services and products of other companies during the term of the Affiliates Agreement. However direct or indirect promotion of those products and services to Health Therapies Affiliates is limited to those personally sponsored. An Affiliate found in violation of this rule risks the loss of buying privileges, possible suspension and/or termination of the Agreement and from participating in the Health Therapies Compensation Plan, in addition to other remedies too which Health Therapies may be entitled.
Recruiting others directly or indirectly whether through written, spoken, or implied means from one Health Therapies Affiliate organization to another is strictly prohibited.
Federal and state regulatory agencies rarely approve or endorse direct selling programs or products. The FDA does not approve cosmetic or health related products, other than certifying that the products incorporate safe ingredients. Therefore, Affiliates may not represent directly or indirectly that the Health Therapies marketing program or products have been approved/reviewed/endorsed or otherwise backed by any governmental agency.
Affiliates understand that they will not say directly or indirectly that any Health Therapies product is FDA approved, or discuss or suggest that any diagnosis, evaluation, prognosis, description, treatment, therapy, or management or remedy of illness, ailment or disease can be improved by consumption or application of the product. Affiliates understand that Health Therapies products are not offered, intended, or considered as medicinal treatment of any disorder or disease, either mental or physical.
Affiliates are entitled to sponsor other Affiliates in the United States, its territories and other countries as officially opened by Health Therapies into the Health Therapies program. However, Affiliates are compensated only for the generation of sales of products, not for sponsoring new Affiliates into the program.
A distributorship may be sold or transferred to a non-Affiliate only following a period of six (6) months of the origination date. A completed and notarized Sales/Transfer form is to be submitted to the Support Department. When such transfer/sales are approved, and accepted, any volume previously accumulated will be removed.
The Company discourages the sale of distributorships and the transfer of partial interest in distributorships and prohibits the practice of partnerships as a subterfuge for transferring interest in distributorships. If a Affiliate wishes to sell, transfer, or assign (hereinafter in this “sell” if used as a verb and “sale” if used as a noun) his or her whole or partial interests in a Health Therapies distributorship the following criteria must be met:
- The distributorship being sold must be an active distributorship for a minimum of six (6) months immediately prior to the time the request for sale is made.
- The acquiring Affiliate may not currently have a Beneficial Interest in a distributorship or have had a Beneficial Interest in a distributorship within the preceding six (6) months.
- The selling Affiliate may not reapply to become an Affiliate for a period of not less than six (6) months.
The Company has the right to amend this rule at its sole discretion.
If one applicant submits multiple Registration Forms and Agreement Forms listing multiple sponsors, only the first completed form to be received by Health Therapies will be accepted. Health Therapies reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to make the final decision with respect to all such disputes.
Placement changes/corrections may be requested within a period of three (3) days from the date of enrollment. Such adjustments require written permission directed to the Support Department submitted from the personal back office of the sponsor, as well as the Affiliate to be moved, and in some cases the up-line Affiliate.
Sponsor changes are not permitted. However, sponsor corrections can be made if they are reported to the Support Department within a period of three (3) business days. Sponsor corrections must be requested from the Affiliate back office of the current (original) sponsor, stating the reason that the correction needs to be made.
An Affiliate desiring to acquire another Affiliate’s business must first terminate his/her Affiliate status and wait a period of six (6) months from the date of the resignation notice, before becoming eligible for such a purchase. All such transactions must be fully disclosed through the completion of a Sales/Transfer form submitted to Health Therapies Support Department and is subject to approval by the Company.
When adding a co-applicant (either an individual or a business entity) to an existing distributorship, Health Therapies requires a fully executed Co-Applicant Form to be submitted. The original applicant must remain a party to the original Registration Form and Agreement. If the original Affiliate wants to terminate his/her Affiliate relationship with Health Therapies, he/she must do so in accordance with Health Therapies policy. If this is not followed, the business shall be terminated upon withdrawal of the original Affiliate. All bonus and commission checks will be sent to the address on record on the distributorship. A co-applicant may not, under any circumstance, be party to any other distributorship. Note that the modification permitted within the scope of this paragraph does not include change in sponsorship.
Personal information such as the Affiliate back-office password, the Affiliatess address, telephone number, etc. will be treated as confidential and will not be shared with any other person(s) outside of Health Therapies, unless required by law. In the event of an emergency, the inquiring party may contact Health Therapies Support Department who will advise the Affiliate that someone is attempting to contact him/her.
Affiliates are required to assure the adequate training of Affiliates they sponsor. “Adequate training” shall include, but is not limited to, education regarding the Policies and Procedures, Compensation Plan, product information, sound business practices, sales strategies, and ethical business behavior. A sponsor must maintain an ongoing, professional leadership association with Affiliates in his/her organization and must fulfill the obligation of performing a bona fide supervisory, sales or distributive function on the sale or delivery of product and services to the ultimate consumer.
Any Affiliate may voluntarily resign his/her Affiliate status by failing to renew when required, or by sending a written notice to the Health Therapies Support Department. Resignation is in effect upon receipt of such notice. An Affiliate who resigns his/her distributorship may not reapply either individually or have financial interests in any other Affiliate entity for a period of six (6) months from the date of resignation.
Health Therapies reserves the right to suspend any Affiliate position at any time for cause when it is determined that the Affiliate has violated the provisions of the Agreement as they might be amended or the provisions of the applicable laws and standards for fair dealing. Health Therapies shall make such involuntary suspension at its discretion. Health Therapies will notify the Affiliate either by postal delivery or email sent to the latest address listed with Health Therapies for the Affiliate. In the event of a suspension a Affiliate agrees to immediately cease representing himself/herself as an Affiliate for Health Therapies.
During the investigation period of the suspension, any commissions, overrides or bonuses which may be due, will be held in abeyance by Health Therapies pending resolution. Should the infraction be deemed unsubstantiated, or the appeal evaluated and accepted by Health Therapies, the suspension shall be lifted and any commissions, overrides or bonuses will be credited to the distributorship. During the applicable suspension period, Health Therapies products and services may be purchased by the suspended Affiliate at the Affiliates’ cost. However, the suspended Affiliate does not have the right to represent himself/herself as an Affiliate, promote his/her Affiliate business or the products during the applicable suspension period. In any instance where applicable law is inconsistent with or requires additional or other action than set forth in the foregoing, such procedure shall automatically be amended to conform to compliance for the residents of that state.
If an Affiliate is suspended for wrongdoing for a determined period, he or she will not be entitled to earn commissions or overrides for the period of the suspension.
An Affiliate may be terminated for violating any of the terms of the Agreement. Notice of the termination, citing the reason(s) for the action, shall be provided in writing to the Affiliate and delivered either through postal delivery or email. Termination shall be effective as set forth therein, if a timely appeal is not provided by the Affiliate in accordance with the appeal procedure set forth below.
If Health Therapies deems it necessary to terminate an individual’s Affiliate position, the termination would render the terms of the Agreement between Health Therapies and that individual null and void.
A suspended or terminated Affiliate may appeal the action by submitting a letter to the Compliance Department of Health Therapies stating the grounds of appeal. (Note: No telephone calls will be accepted under any circumstances). Health Therapies must receive the letter of appeal within ten (10) business days of the date of such notice. If Health Therapies has not received the letter of appeal by the deadline date, the involuntary suspension or termination shall automatically become final.
If an Affiliate files a timely appeal, Health Therapies will, at its sole discretion, review and notify the Affiliate of its decision. The decision of Health Therapies shall be final and will not be subject to further review.
If the appeal is denied based upon the documentation and evidence presented against the Affiliate, the suspension or termination shall remain in effect as of the date of Health Therapies’ original notice.
Notwithstanding any other provisions of this, upon the death of an Affiliate, the Affiliate entity shall pass to his/her successor in interest as provided by law. However, Health Therapies will not recognize such transfers until the successor in interest has submitted a completed Sales/Transfer form to Health Therapies Support Department, together with certified copies of the death certificate and will, trust or other instrument and executed Sale/Transfer form. The successor shall thereafter be entitled to all the rights and subject to all the obligations as any other Affiliate. In addition, the successor in interest must be of legal age in his/her country of residence.
During the pendency of divorce or entity dissolution, both parties must adopt one of the following methods of operation:
- One of the parties may, with written consent of the other(s), operate the Health Therapies business whereby the relinquishing spouse, shareholders, members, partners or trustees authorize Health Therapies to deal directly and solely with the other spouse or non-relinquishing shareholder, partner, or trustee.
- The parties may continue to operate the Health Therapies business jointly on a business-as-usual basis, whereby all compensation paid by Health Therapies will be paid in the joint names of the Affiliates, or on the names of the entity to be divided as the parties may independently agree between themselves.
- Under no circumstance will Health Therapies split commissions and bonus checks between divorcing spouses or members of dissolving entities. Health Therapies will recognize only one (1) downline organization and will issue only one (1) commission check per Health Therapies business, per commission cycle. Commission checks shall always be issued to the same individual or entity. If parties of a divorce or dissolution proceedings are unable to resolve a dispute over the disposition of commissions and ownership of the business, the Agreement shall be involuntarily cancelled.
If a former spouse or former entity affiliate has completely relinquished all rights to his/her original Health Therapies business he/she is therefore free to enroll under any sponsor of his/her choosing, so long as he/she meets the waiting period set forth by Health Therapies. In such case, however, the former spouse or party shall have no rights to any Affiliare in his/her organization or any former Affiliate.
An Affiliate that is a Business Entity and desires to change to another type of Business Entity may do so if the equity ownership in the Business Entity does not change. All Equity holders of the former Legal Entity must confirm with a notarized or other form of authentication signature that they agree to the change. Also, a new Affiliate Agreement must be submitted by the new Business Entity. Members of the former Business Entity are jointly and severally liable for any indebtedness or other obligations to Health Therapies.
Affiliates may gain access to confidential information through the Health Therapies website. Specifically, without limiting the foregoing, the information contained in any genealogical or downline report provided or accessible to an Affiliate by Health Therapies is proprietary and confidential belonging to and owned by Health Therapies and is transmitted or available to the Affiliate in strict confidence. The Affiliate agrees that he/she will not disclose any such confidential or proprietary information to any third party directly or indirectly or use the information to compete with Health Therapies. This information is to be used only for the promotion of the Health Therapies program. The Affiliate and Health Therapies agree that without this agreement of confidentiality and non-disclosure, Health Therapies would not provide the information or make it accessible to the Affiliate. Any Affiliate who is found, or reported to be in violation of this rule, may not only risk the loss of buying privileges, but possible suspension from participating in the Compensation Plan, and termination of the Agreement, and Health Therapies may fully seek injunctive relief and/or remedy for damages that the law allows. It is agreed that this provision shall survive the termination or expiration of this Agreement.
Any Affiliate is encouraged to share his/her excitement as the result of product consumption and use. Health Therapies reserves the right to use statements and photographs, voluntarily submitted to its Support Department from Affiliates and customers in its promotional material without any financial or other compensation. Upon signing the Agreement, each Affiliates agrees to release his/her testimony by Health Therapies.
Affiliates agree to refrain from systematically targeting members of another Network Marketing business to be a Health Therapies Affiliate, this includes, but is not limited to any Amway Distributor. If any lawsuit, arbitration, or mediation is brought against any Affiliate alleging that he or she engaged in such prohibited activity, he or she shall indemnify Health Therapies against all claims, actions, suits, and demands arising from or related to the systematic targeting.
Health Therapies business relationship with its vendors, manufacturers, and suppliers are confidential. A Affiliate shall not contact, directly or indirectly, speak to, or communicate with any representative or any supplier, manufacturer, or vendor except at a Health Therapies sponsored event at which the representative is present at the request of Health Therapies.

Only Health Therapies is authorized to produce and market products and literature under these trademarks. This includes but is not limited to slides, overheads, brochures, videos, domain addresses, email addresses, and other training and/or marketing materials and all promotional materials such as but not limited to t-shirts, caps, pins, magnetic signs, etc. Use of the Health Therapies name on any item not produced or authorized by Health Therapies is prohibited, except in the manner described below:

The terms that an Affiliate uses when discussing the Health Therapies program are critical. Improper use of terms or the use of improper terms can create a situation that is in violation of regulatory standards, when in fact the proper discussion of the programs reflects the full and complete compliance with all standards. It is the responsibility of all Affiliates to fully understand these differences to avoid suspension or termination for false representation or operation of their distributorship.
The word “fee” should never be used to describe Health Therapies products – regardless of how they are obtained. The only “fee” is for the fully replicable website and business management back office. There is no fee for products, but rather a purchase price set to reflect the true wholesale and retail value of the product.
A Health Therapies Affiliate may promote his/her Affiliate business through Health Therapies’ replicating website only. The website links seamlessly to the official Health Therapies website giving the Affiliate a professional and Health Therapies-approved presence on the Internet.

The minimum amount of payment of commissions is $25.00 US (twenty-five dollars) or as mandated in any foreign country. If the earned amount is less than that amount, it will be accumulated until such time that the amount exceeds $25.00 US (twenty-five dollars).
No product purchase is required to become a Health Therapies Affiliate. Health Therapies Affiliates are entitled to purchase products from Health Therapies at a discounted price.
The success of Health Therapies depends upon retail sales to the ultimate consumer; therefore, all forms of stockpiling are discouraged. Health Therapies recognizes that Affiliatess may wish to purchase certain products in reasonable quantities for their own use, for inventory purposes and for the purpose of provisioning new Affiliates as they are sponsored. However, Health Therapies strictly prohibits the purchase of products solely to qualify for advancement in the Compensation Plan.
Any Affiliate position that has not been activated within a period of 14 (fourteen) days from the enrollment date with paid product order(s) and/or back-office service will be considered voluntarily resigned and will not be eligible for reinstatement later. In addition, inactive positions, showing no orders with BV and no back-office service will be terminated by Health Therapies after 90 (ninety) days from the inactive date.
Should any product or sales material be unavailable for any period, Health Therapies Affiliates will be given the option of placing the order and waiting for availability or canceling the order with full reimbursement without penalties until those items are ready for shipping.
To qualify for commissions and overrides, the Affiliate certifies with the purchase of product that he/she has sold to retail customers and/or has consumed seventy percent (70%) of all products previously purchased. This is known in the industry as the “Seventy Percent Rule”.
Note: Affiliates placing telephone or mail orders are equally required to comply with this rule and will be asked by the order processor or will be required to confirm by signature to verify compliance.
To qualify for any compensation payable under the Health Therapies Compensation Plan, an Affiliate must certify, by completion of the Retail Sales Rule Compliance Form, that he/she has made at least one (1) retail sale to five (5) different retail customers in the calendar month in which commissions or bonuses are earned. The compliance form must be received by Health Therapies no later than the fifth (5th) day following each calendar period, if Health Therapies takes measures to confirm that the requisite retail sales have occurred.
Health Therapies Affiliates in eligible countries may participate in the Online Retail Customer Program and have the ability to direct his or her customers to the Retail Shopping Cart web site to make product purchases. The Online Retail Customer Program allows the retail customer to purchase directly from Health Therapies, which affords the Affiliate the opportunity to earn commissions from his or her retail sales with the freedom of not having to maintain inventory.
Because Health Therapies offers a 90 (ninety) day money-back guarantee to retail customers, there will be a thirty-five (35) day period from the date of each sale for commissions to be earned, ensuring an appropriate timeframe for customer returns. Should a customer elect to return a Health Therapies product purchase, no commissions will be earned.
Health Therapies shall not be responsible for failure to perform hereunder if such breach of performance is caused by any circumstance of Force Majeure, being reasons beyond the reasonable control of Health Therapies. This includes, but is not restricted to, Acts of God, fire, flood, earthquakes, equipment failure, supplier problems, war, acts of terrorism, vandalism, criminal activities and the like. In such event Health Therapies will be relieved of its obligation to perform until a reasonable period has expired following the end of the circumstance or Force Majeure.
Health Therapies Affiliates may purchase needed product directly from Health Therapies. If an Affiliate obtains product from his/her sponsor or upline Affiliate’s personal inventory, and a replacement product is not placed through Health Therapies, the commissions associated with the purchase will be attributed to the sponsor or upline.
Credit card purchases may only be made by the individual whose name and address are on the credit card. Any Affiliate who uses another individual’s credit card to pay for purchases risks having his/her Distributorship placed on suspension pending investigation and resolution of any complaints regarding unauthorized charges. Health Therapies considers such transactions fraudulent and will report them to the proper authorities for settlement.
Under no circumstance will any Affiliate or charge back any credit card purchases. Any Affiliate who does so will immediately lose all credit card ordering privileges until the charges are replaced with certified funds. If an erroneous charge is applied to an Affiliates credit card, the Affiliate should immediately contact the Support Department of Health Therapies to initiate an investigation and resolution.
Any upline Affiliate affected by returned products to Health Therapies will accordingly be subject to adjustments in his/or her commissions, overrides and bonus accounts, personal volume, etc. based upon all commissions and bonuses paid on the returned product.
Bonus buying includes (1) the enrollment of an individual or entity as an Health Therapies Affiliate without the knowledge of and/or execution of an Affiliate Agreement by such individual or entity, (2) the fraudulent enrollment of an individual or entity as an Affiliate; (3) the enrollment or attempted enrollment of non-existent individuals or entities as Affiliates (phantoms), or (4) the use of a credit card on behalf of an affiliate when the Affiliate is not the account holder of such a credit card. Bonus buying constitutes a material breach of these Policies and Procedures and is strictly prohibited.
Purchases may be paid by credit card only.
Affiliate authorizes Health Therapies to debit the credit card account indicated in this web form for the noted amount on the schedule indicated. This payment is for recurring Health Therapies product subscription. Affiliate understands that Health Therapies offers a 90-day money-back guarantee to retail customers for returns, refunds, and cancellations. There will be a thirty-five (35) day period from the date of each sale for commissions to be earned, ensuring an appropriate timeframe for customer returns. Should a customer elect to return a Health Therapies product purchase, no commissions will be earned. Affiliate understands that this authorization will remain in effect until the schedule end date, or until the Affiliate cancels it in writing, whichever comes first, and the Affiliate agrees to notify the business in writing of any changes in their account information or termination of this authorization at least 15 days prior to the next billing date. If the above noted payment date falls on a weekend or holiday, the Affiliate understands that the payment may be executed on the next business day.

It is the ordering Affiliate’s sole responsibility to indicate (a) method and means of shipping, and (b) destination address. The methods available are stated on each order form and on the Health Therapies website along with prepaid costs. Shipping costs will be automatically calculated.
The method of shipping packages will be determined by Health Therapies based upon various factors such as weight and destination unless there are specific shipping instructions made by the Affiliate.
Note: Should the receiving party of an order shipped from Health Therapies refuse delivery, the shipment is then returned to Health Therapies, and the ordering Affiliate’s status will be made ‘inactive’ pending resolution of the delivery refusal. Return delivery charges will be deducted from the Affiliates account.
If a package is returned due to a Affiliate’s error, or if the package was not picked up in a timely manner and therefore returned, Health Therapies will charge the Affiliate a re-shipping fee.
Upon clearance of payment, Health Therapies processes for shipment the product(s) and material(s) selected. If an item is temporarily unavailable due to high demand, the consignee will be notified by way of the packing slip included with the shipment. Should a back order occur, the item(s) will be shipped as soon as available, usually within ten (10) days of the date the original order and payment were received.
Health Therapies will not ‘hold’ orders or delay shipments of products that have been processed. Once payment has been received, all orders must be released for shipping.
The shipping company is responsible for damage, which occurs after it takes physical custody of the goods. A Affiliate who receives damaged goods should follow this procedure:
- Accept delivery
- Before the driver leaves, document on the delivery receipt the number of boxes, which appear to be damaged.
- Save the damaged product and box(es) for inspection by the shipping
- Make an appointment with the shipping company to have the damaged goods
- File a claim with the shipping
- Notify the customer service department of Health Therapies.
Health Therapies takes pride in fulfilling orders in an accurate and timely manner. However, in those rare instances where errors may occur, a correction will be handled quickly to avoid further delay to the recipient. Affiliates are provided with a period of five (5) business days following receipt of shipment to report any shortages. Once notified and verified, Health Therapies will ship missing items to the address on the original order.
All Health Therapies products and literature prices are subject to change without prior notice.
Health Therapies provides a suggested retail price as a guideline. Health Therapies Independent Affiliates may sell Health Therapies products at whatever price they and their customers agree upon, however, an Affiliate is not permitted to advertise any price below Health Therapies suggested retail price. This includes but is not limited to ‘free’ products or any other special pricing that would fall below the SRP. No Health Therapies product may be offered along with the products of any other company.
Health Therapies Affiliates will provide all retail customers of Health Therapies products with printed sales receipts. Affiliates who order through the Internet for their customers will receive an email confirmation of acceptance in addition to the packing slip, which will be inside the package.
For purchases made from Health Therapies, Health Therapies collects and remits applicable state and local taxes, which may be due on the suggested retail price of those products and/or materials, which are subject to tax. The applicable rate of tax due is based upon the address to which the product and/or sales material is to be delivered.
For Affiliates who possess a current Sales Tax Exemption Certificate (STEC): Please refer to the laws of the state in which your certificate was issued to obtain information on how to submit a sales tax refund request, if applicable.
Health Therapies is a direct sales company. Our success is based upon our AFFILIATES selling directly (one- on-one) to the consumer, in a personal and caring manner. To maintain this personal contact with our customers, and to provide equal opportunity to all Affiliates to sell Health Therapies products to consumers, Health Therapies places certain restrictions on the sales of its products to or through commercial establishments.

Retail sales return requests must be clearly written with complete details (name, address, telephone number, email, if available, and any other information which would allow Health Therapies to verify the sale and subsequent return.) Unverifiable retail sales cannot be replaced. Falsified information could lead to further investigation and possible suspension of distributorship.
Before any product may be returned to Health Therapies, whether it is a shipping error, retail customer return, damaged products or resignation, the Affiliate must contact the Health Therapies Support Department either by fax, postal delivery, or email to obtain a Return Merchandise Authorization Number (RMA). Any package received without such identification clearly visible on the package exterior will be refused.
Health Therapies will replace, within ninety (90) days of purchase any product found to be defective. However, no product(s) should be returned to Health Therapies prior to the approval to do so from the Support Department, whether through telephone, fax, or email request. To assure that replacement product will be issued, strict compliance to the following procedure is required:
- A written replacement request must be submitted, stating the reason for the request, and accompanied by verification of payment and a copy of the Product Order form and packing slip.

Purchase and Sale of Products). The repurchase shall be at a price of not less than ninety percent (90%) of the original net cost to the participant, minus any freight charges and commissions paid to the Affiliate.
Note: This can only offset commissions earned because of the product return. Any such requests will be considered a resignation of the distributorship.
If inventory is returned that does not meet the above conditions for return, such merchandise will be held for a period of ninety (90) days during which time the Affiliate has the right to request return of those items. Affiliates will pay for all shipping charges. Should this request not be received by the Support Department of Health Therapies in the time noted above, Health Therapies reserves the right to destroy such inventory without further compensation to that Affiliate. To ensure that a refund is issued in a timely manner, the following steps should be followed:
- A written request must be submitted, either by fax or email to Health Therapies Support Department, clearly citing the reason for the resignation and for the return of product and/or sales materials.
- Upon receipt of the proper information, Health Therapies will instruct the Affiliate where to ship the products along with an RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization), which must be clearly visible on the exterior of the (Any return without this information visible on the outside of the package will be refused without exception).

- The Affiliate assumes responsibility for packing and shipping products back in a manner that will ensure that it is received in a timely manner and with minimal
- Refunds will be issued in the same manner that payment was received. This means that if a credit card was used initially, the reimbursement will be issued back to that same credit card.
** The permissible return period will vary according to country and state laws.
Should a Affiliate refuse delivery of any Health Therapies shipment or request to return any previously purchased product for a refund, such request will be deemed as a voluntary resignation.
Federal law empowers a buyer to cancel certain sales without penalty prior to midnight of the third (3rd) business day following the transaction. This rule covers retail consumer sales of twenty-five dollars ($25.00) or more that occurs away from the retailer’s main office. In addition, the Affiliate must orally inform the buyer of the three (3) day right to cancel at the time the buyer signs the contract of sales or purchase of goods.
Health Therapies will not accept product exchanges from Affiliates.
If a retail customer mails or delivers to a Affiliate valid notice of cancellation prior to midnight on the third (3rd) business day after ordering or purchasing product, it must be honored by the Affiliate. If a buyer has taken delivery of any goods, that product must be returned, along with the notice, in as good a condition as when delivered. Within ten (10) business days after receiving the notice, the Affiliate must refund all payment made under the contract of sale.
Should a retail customer contact Health Therapies Support concerning the refusal of a Affiliate to issue the appropriate refund in the time indicated, that Affiliate will be subject to suspension of Distributorship pending resolution of the complaint.

To maintain a viable Marketing Program in changing economic conditions and/or to comply with changes to federal, state, or local laws, Health Therapies at its discretion reserves the right to amend the Policies and Procedures as set forth therein, its Affiliates prices or suggested retail prices, product availability and formulations, and Compensation Plan, as it deems appropriate without prior notice. Such Policies and Procedures and Compensation Plan modifications and all changes thereto, shall become a binding part of the Agreement upon publication on the official Health Therapies website. It is the Affiliates responsibility to stay abreast of current and updated information and Health Therapies is in no way liable for any Affiliates ignorance of the correct and current information if he or she fails to do so. In the event of any conflict between the Agreement and any such amendment, the amendment shall prevail. If Company brochures, product catalogs, price lists, literature, website, fax on demand information, etc. are revised; only the most current version is authorized for use by Health Therapies Affiliates.
No failure of Health Therapies to exercise any power under these Policies and Procedures or to insist on strict compliance by a Affiliate with any obligation or provision herein, and no custom or practice of the parties at variance with these Policies and Procedures, shall constitute a waiver of Health Therapies right to demand exact compliance with these Policies and Procedures. Waiver by Health Therapies can be affected only in writing by an authorized officer of Health Therapies.
Health Therapies’ waiver of any default by a Affiliate shall not affect or impair Health Therapies’ right with respect to any subsequent default, nor shall it affect in any way the right or obligation of any other Affiliate, nor shall any delay or omission by Health Therapies to exercise any right arising from default, affect or impair Health Therapies’ right as to that, or any subsequent default.
The following only applies to Affiliates who are residents of Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Wyoming, Montana, and other states that may specifically require the following: A Affiliate in a multilevel marketing plan has the right to cancel at any time regardless of reason. Cancellation must be submitted in writing either by postal delivery, fax or through email. This is an Affiliate Marketing Project not Multi-Level Marketing.

Such repurchase shall be at a price of no less than ninety percent (90%) of the original cost minus any freight charges and commissions paid to that Affiliate.
The repayment of all administrative fees and services shall be at not less than ninety percent (90%) of the cost to the Affiliate of such fees and services and shall reflect all administrative services that have not, at the time of resignation, been provided to the Affiliate. Health Therapies shall further refund not less than ninety percent (90%) of the cost to the Affiliate of any other consideration paid by the Affiliate to participate in the program. The Affiliate will be held responsible for all shipping expenses incurred in returning sales aids or products to Health Therapies.

Such documents must bear the writer’s signature and Affiliate’s Personal Identification Number. Anonymous complaints will not be accepted.
Note: No telephone calls will be accepted in such matters, as documentation must be presented in writing, both from the complaining parties and ultimately from the individual(s) cited for policy
violation. Details of the incident such as dates, number of occurrences, persons involved, witnesses and any other supporting documentation should be included in the report.
All disputes and claims relating to Health Therapies, the Agreement, or its products, the rights and obligations of an Affiliate of Health Therapies, or any claims or causes of actions relating to the performance of either a Affiliate or Health Therapies under the Agreement, and/or a Affiliate’s purchase of products shall be settled totally and finally by arbitration in the state of California, or such other location as Health Therapies prescribes, in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act, and the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association. There shall be one (1) arbitrator, an attorney at law, who shall have expertise in business law transactions with preference being an attorney knowledgeable in the direct selling industry, selected from a panel, which the American Arbitration Association approves. Each party to the arbitration shall be responsible for its own costs and expenses of arbitration, including legal and filing fees. If a Affiliate files a claim or counterclaim against Health Therapies, an Affiliate shall do so on an individual basis and not with any other Affiliates or as part of a class action. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on the parties and may, if necessary, be reduced to a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. This agreement for arbitration shall survive any termination or expiration of the Agreement.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, the arbitration shall have no jurisdiction over disputes relating to the ownership, validity or registration or any mark of other intellectual property or proprietary confidential information of Health Therapies, without Health Therapies’ written consent. Health Therapies may seek any applicable remedy in any applicable forum with respect to these disputes and with respect to money owing to Health Therapies. In addition to monetary damages, Health Therapies may obtain injunctive relief against a Affiliate in violation of the Agreement, and for any violation of misuses of Health Therapies trademark, copyright, or confidential information policies.
Nothing in these Policies and Procedures shall prevent us from terminating the Affiliate Agreement or applying to and obtaining from any court having jurisdiction a writ attachment, a temporary injunction, preliminary injunction, permanent injunction, or other relief available to safeguard and protect our interest prior to, during or following the filing of any arbitration or other proceedings or pending the rendition of a decision or award in connection with any arbitration or other legal proceedings.
The existence of any claim or cause of action of an Affiliate against Health Therapies, whether predicated on the Agreement or otherwise, shall not constitute a defense to Health Therapies enforcement of the covenants and agreements contained in the Agreement.
The arbitration shall be conducted in accordance with these Policies and Rules. The arbitration and all proceedings associated therein are private proceedings and not subject to any public right of access. The arbitrator shall have the authority to enter appropriate protective orders to preserve the confidentiality of the proceedings and information exchanged in discovery. The arbitrator shall have the authority, power, and jurisdiction to grant both legal and equitable relief, including temporary, preliminary, and permanent injunctive relief. The arbitrator shall also have authority to determine whether any issue is subject to arbitration under the Agreement. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on the parties and may, if need be, be reduced to a judgment
in any court of competent jurisdiction. At the request of any party, the arbitrator shall make and provide the parties written findings of fact and conclusion or law. This agreement to arbitration shall survive any termination or expiration of the Agreement.
The parties shall equally share the assessed costs associated with the arbitration, including all arbitrator fees, providing however, that the prevailing party in any appeal to the Appeals Panel shall be entitled to recover its share of the costs of such appeal from the non-prevailing party. The parties shall each bear their own attorney fees in connection with the arbitration and any appeal, irrespective of which party prevails and any demand or request for such fees.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, the arbitrator shall have no jurisdiction over disputes relating to the ownership, validity, use of registration of any Proprietary Mark or other intellectual property or Confidential Information of the Company without the Company’s prior written consent. The Company may seek any applicable remedy on any applicable forum with respect to these disputes. Nothing contained herein shall be deemed to give the arbitrator any authority, power or right to alter, change, amend, modify, add to, or to subtract from any of the provisions of the Policies and Procedures, Compensation Plan or the Affiliate Agreement.
