The purpose of this document is to set forth the terms and conditions (“Terms and Conditions”) that apply to your Independent Associate relationship with Isagenix International, LLC (“Isagenix” or “Company”). Once your application is submitted to and accepted by Isagenix, an agreement is created between you and Isagenix. Accordingly, you understand and agree as follows:
You acknowledge that you have received, read, and understand the Isagenix (a) Earnings Disclosure Statement that contains the average Independent Associate earnings, and other sales figures and percentages as published by Isagenix, (b) Compensation Plan, and (c) Policies, which are incorporated into and made a part of this IAAA; and that you have read and agree to all Terms and Conditions set forth in this IAAA. You understand and agree that if you have altered these Terms and Conditions in any way, your IAAA will not be deemed accepted by Isagenix, regardless of passage of time or payment of commissions or bonuses. Isagenix may, at its discretion, deem this IAAA to be void ab initio and require that you repay all commissions, bonuses and other compensation Isagenix has paid to you. You further understand you may terminate your Associate Contract at any time for any reason. To terminate your Associate Contract, you must give written notice to Isagenix in accordance with Section 11 below.
Terms used but not defined herein, will have the meanings set forth in the definitions or glossaries of relevant Isagenix documents, such as the Policies or the Compensation Plan.
2. Independent Contractor Status
Upon Isagenix’s acceptance of this IAAA, you understand that you will become an Isagenix Independent Associate (Independent Associate or Associate) and will be eligible to participate in the selling and distribution of Isagenix goods and services and receive commissions and bonuses in connection with such sales in accordance with the Associate Contract. As an Independent Associate you are an independent contractor. You acknowledge and agree that you are not an agent, employee, legal representative or franchisee of Isagenix, your Sponsor(s), or any other Independent Associate. You further understand and agree that you will not be treated as an employee for federal or state tax purposes, and will not be treated as an employee for purposes of the Federal Unemployment Act, Insurance Contributions Act or Social Security Act, or any state unemployment laws, state employment security laws, or any state workers compensation laws. You understand and agree that you are responsible for and will pay all federal and state taxes, including income taxes, self-employment taxes, sales taxes, local taxes, and/or local license fees that apply to your activities and compensation received under the Associate Contract. As a self-employed independent contractor, you will be operating your own independent business, buying and selling products and services available through and by Isagenix on your own accord. You have complete freedom in determining the number of hours you will devote to your business, and you have the sole discretion of scheduling such hours. Isagenix will not provide you with a place of business, and if you desire a place of business other than your own residence, you will be responsible for procuring, furnishing, equipping, and paying for such place of business. As a self-employed independent contractor, you are also responsible for complying with any applicable federal, state, provincial, or local business licensing requirements.
3. Payment and Remuneration
You understand and agree that substantially all of your remuneration for the services you perform will consist of (a) retail profits from completed in-person sales of Isagenix products to End Consumers, and/or (b) commissions or bonuses paid by the Company based on orders from End Consumers. Sales occur primarily in locations other than fixed retail locations. Remuneration is not determined by the number of hours worked.
As an Independent Associate, you are not guaranteed any income, nor are you assured of any profit or success. When discussing the Compensation Plan, you agree to emphasize that sales to End Consumers are a requirement for compensation, that no purchase of goods or services is required, that no recruitment fee can be derived from the mere act of sponsoring other Independent Associate’s or customers, and that no earnings are guaranteed from participation in the Compensation Plan. You must also provide a copy of the Isagenix Earnings Disclosure Statement to all your prospective Associates. You agree that you will not make any false, unsubstantiated, or misleading representations about the actual, potential, or expected earnings from participating in the Compensation Plan. Representations concerning earnings or income also must comply with the applicable Policies and guidelines, the Compensation Plan, and the legal requirements of the jurisdiction in which you are making an earnings related representation.
You certify that neither Isagenix nor your Sponsor(s) has made any claims of guaranteed earnings or misleading representations of anticipated earnings that might result from your efforts as an Independent Associate. Your success as an Independent Associate is dependent upon your own efforts and skills, as well as other factors, some of which you may not control; and you do not anticipate receiving income as a result of the efforts of any other individual or entity other than yourself (and your spouse, if you are co-owners of a Position).
4. Prohibition of Online Sales

In particular, you agree that you will never offer Isagenix products for sale on eBay.com, Amazon.com, or similar websites—and that you will never help anyone else to do so. This covenant will survive the expiration or termination of the IAAA.

The term of this IAAA is one (1) year and will automatically renew on each anniversary date, unless earlier terminated by you or Isagenix.

Automatic Renewal Charge: As a convenience, if you are an Active Associate and place an order with your personal credit card within ninety (90) days before your renewal date, Isagenix will automatically renew your IAAA by charging the applicable renewal fee (plus tax) to the same credit card, provided it is your current method of payment on file at the time the fee is charged.

You understand that federal or state agencies do not approve or endorse network marketing programs and you may not make any representations to the contrary.
You acknowledge and understand that the acceptance of this IAAA does not constitute the sale of a franchise or a distributorship, that there are no exclusive territories granted to anyone, that no franchise fees have been paid or collected, and that you are not acquiring any security interest.
You may not transfer, delegate or otherwise assign the IAAA or any portion of it or any right, privilege, authority, responsibility, duty, or obligation of such, without the prior written consent of Isagenix. Any attempt to so transfer, delegate or assign without prior written consent of Isagenix will be void ab initio, will be of no effect, and will be a breach of the Associate Contract. Isagenix may transfer or assign the Associate Contract and any or all of its rights or duties under the Associate Contract at its sole discretion and without notice, consent, or acknowledgment.
Violation of any of the terms of the Associate Contract or of any law may result in forfeiture of commissions, bonuses and/or other payments from Isagenix based on all or part of your Marketing Organization, cancellation of your IAAA, or other corrective action as deemed appropriate by Isagenix in its sole discretion, and as provided for in the Policies. Without limiting any of its rights or other remedies, if your Associate Contract is terminated or cancelled by Isagenix (or by you) at any time for any reason, you will permanently lose and forfeit all rights as an Isagenix Independent Associate, and you waive and forfeit all rights and claims to your Marketing Organization and to all commissions, bonuses and other payments.

You agree that any unresolved dispute will be resolved and settled in accordance with and pursuant to Policy 9.10 (Arbitration and Governing Law). In the event that a dispute or claim arising out of, or relating to the IAAA, is not subject to arbitration as set forth in said Policy 9.10, the laws of the state of Arizona will govern, and the parties agree that proper jurisdiction and venue shall be in the state and federal courts of Arizona. This IAAA shall be binding on the successors and assigns of both parties. In the event of a dispute for jurisdictional purposes, a Louisiana Associate shall be entitled to file an adjudicatory claim or lawsuit in the jurisdiction of Louisiana and the governing law shall be Louisiana law.
The provisions of the Associate Contract are severable. In the event that an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction determines any portion of the Associate Contract is unenforceable in any respect, then it will enforce the rest of the Associate Contract to the fullest extent permitted by law without affecting the enforceability of the remaining provisions.
No waiver of any default or breach of your Associate Contract, or failure to enforce rights contained therein, will be considered a waiver by Isagenix of any subsequent default or breach of the same or any other provision.
This IAAA may be executed and submitted electronically in accordance with applicable law. The provisions of your Associate Contract, including all documents incorporated herein by reference, embody the whole agreement between you and Isagenix and supersede any prior agreements, understandings and obligations between you and Isagenix concerning the subject matter hereof.

If you do not agree with such changes, your only remedy is to terminate your IAAA.
