I understand that I must be in good standing and not in violation of any of the terms of the Contract in order to be eligible to receive any bonuses or commissions from dōTERRA. I understand that the Contract, including this Wellness Advocate Agreement, the dōTERRA Policy Manual, and the dōTERRA Sales Compensation Plan, may be amended at any time at the sole discretion of dōTERRA, and I agree that upon 30 days notice, any such amendment will apply to me. Notification of amendments will be published in official dōTERRA materials including dōTERRA’s official website. The continuation of my dōTERRA business or my acceptance of bonuses or commissions shall constitute my acceptance of any and all amendments to the Contract.

5. Term and Termination. The term of this Contract is one year from the date it is submitted to dōTERRA. This Contract may be renewed each year for an additional one-year term. dōTERRA is not obligated to renew this Contract and may, in its sole discretion, reject any application for renewal. Unless you notify dōTERRA of your intent not to renew, dōTERRA notifies you of its intent not to renew, or unless the Contract is terminated by dōTERRA, the Contract may be renewed each year on its annual anniversary date. I agree that dōTERRA may automatically charge my credit card each year in the amount of $25.00 plus tax each year on the anniversary date to renew the Contract with dōTERRA. dōTERRA may terminate my account at any time for violation of the terms and conditions of the Contract including any amendments thereto. If my Contract is canceled or terminated for any reason, I understand and agree that I will permanently lose all rights as a Wellness Advocate and I shall not be eligible to sell dōTERRA products or services or to receive commissions, bonuses, or other remuneration from the activities of my former downline sales organization. In the event of cancellation, termination, or nonrenewal, I agree to forfeit and waive all rights I have, including but not limited to property rights, my former downline organization, and any commissions, bonuses, or other remuneration derived through the sales and other activities of my former downline organization. If my Contract is not renewed, or if it is cancelled or terminated for any reason, I agree to immediately discontinue use of any and all dōTERRA trademarks, service marks, Wellness Advocate and Customer lists, and copyrighted materials. I also agree that during the term of this Contract and for one (1) year following the termination or cancellation of this Contract, regardless of the reason for termination or cancellation, I will not directly or indirectly solicit or recruit, as defined in the dōTERRA Policy Manual, any dōTERRA Wellness Advocate who is in my current or former downline organization or with whom I became acquainted by virtue of my participation as a dōTERRA Wellness Advocate.

6. Assignment. I may not assign any rights or delegate my duties under this Contract without the prior written consent of dōTERRA. dōTERRA may freely assign the Contract at any time. Any attempt to transfer or assign the Contract without the express written consent of dōTERRA renders the Contract terminable at the option of dōTERRA and may result in termination of my business.

7. Breach of the Agreement. I understand that if I fail to comply with the terms of my Contract, dōTERRA may, in its sole discretion, impose upon me disciplinary action as set forth in the dōTERRA Policy Manual. If I am in breach, default, or violation of the Contract at termination, I shall not be entitled to receive any further bonuses or commissions, whether or not the sales for such bonuses or commissions have been completed. If I fail to pay for products or services when payment is due or am indebted to dōTERRA for any reason, including but not limited to for commissions or bonuses paid on returned product, I authorize dōTERRA to withhold and retain the appropriate amounts from my bonus or commission checks or to charge my credit cards or other accounts which I have placed on file with dōTERRA.

8. Limitation of Liability and Indemnification. dōTERRA, its members, managers, directors, officers, shareholders, employees, assigns, and agents (collectively referred to as “affiliates”), shall not be liable for special, indirect, incidental, consequential, punitive, or exemplary damages. If dōTERRA is found to be in breach of the Contract, the maximum amount of damages I may claim shall be limited to the amount of unsold inventory that I personally purchased from dōTERRA and have remaining on hand. I release and agree to indemnify dōTERRA and its affiliates from any and all liability, damages, fines, penalties, or other awards or settlements arising from, or relating to my actions in the promotion or operation of my dōTERRA independent business and any activities related to it (for example, but not limited to, the presentation of dōTERRA products or Sales Compensation Plan, the operation of a motor vehicle, the lease of meeting or training facilities, the making of any unauthorized claims, the failure to comply with any applicable federal, state, or municipal law or regulation, etc.).

9. Entire Agreement. This Wellness Advocate Agreement, the Sales Compensation Plan, and the dōTERRA Policy Manual, in their current forms and as amended by dōTERRA in its discretion, together constitute the entire agreement and Contract between dōTERRA and myself. Any promises, representations, offers, or other communications not expressly set forth in this Wellness Advocate Agreement and Contract are of no force or effect. To the extent of any conflict or inconsistency between this Wellness Advocate Agreement and the Policy Manual (in their current form or as subsequently modified), the Policy Manual shall govern.

10. Waiver and Severability. Any waiver by dōTERRA of any breach of the Contract must be in writing and signed by an authorized officer of dōTERRA. Waiver by dōTERRA of any breach of my Contract by me shall not operate or be construed as a waiver of any subsequent breach. If any provision of the Contract is held to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision shall be reformed only to the extent necessary to make it enforceable and the balance of the Contract will remain in full force and effect.

11. Survival. Sections 5, 8, 9, 10, 12, 13, 16, and 17 of this Wellness Advocate Agreement, as well as Limitation of Liability, Dispute Resolution, and covenants to protect dōTERRA’s trade secrets, confidential information, intellectual property, and other proprietary materials, as set forth more fully in the Policy Manual, shall survive the termination of the Contract.

12. Dispute Resolution. In the event of any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement arising out of or relating to the Contract or the breach thereof, the parties hereto shall use their best efforts to settle the dispute, claim, question, or disagreement. To this effect, they shall consult and negotiate with each other in good faith and attempt to reach a just and equitable solution satisfactory to both parties. If they do not reach such solution within a period of 60 days, then, upon notice by either party to the other, all disputes, claims, questions, or differences, except as provided herein, shall be settled by arbitration administered in Provo, Utah, by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with the provisions of its Commercial Arbitration Rules. The parties agree that any claims submitted to arbitration will be submitted in the party’s individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding. No arbitration or other proceeding will be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to all affected arbitrations or proceedings. Notwithstanding this agreement to arbitrate, the parties agree that claims for only injunctive relief may be brought exclusively in either the United States District Court for the District of Utah or the state courts in Utah County, Utah. The parties further agree that judgment on any award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. This agreement to arbitrate shall survive any termination or expiration of the Contract.

13. Governing Law. To the fullest extent allowed by law, all actions arising out of or relating to the Contract will be governed by the laws of the State of Utah without giving effect to the principles of conflict of laws. I agree that, notwithstanding any statute of limitation to the contrary, any claim or action I may wish to bring against dōTERRA for any act or omission arising out of or relating to the Contract must be brought within one (1) year from the date of the alleged act or omission giving rise to the claim or cause of action. Failure to bring such action within the permitted time shall act as a bar against all claims against dōTERRA for such act or omission. I waive any and all claims or rights to have any other statute of limitation apply.

14. Use of Name and Image. I authorize dōTERRA to use my name, photograph, personal story, and/or likeness in advertising or promotional materials and waive all claims to remuneration for such use.

15. Electronic Communication. I authorize dōTERRA, its affiliates and independent contractors to communicate with me through electronic mail at the email address provided in this Wellness Advocate Agreement. I understand that such email may include offers or solicitations for the sale and purchase of dōTERRA products, sales aids, or services.

16. Counterparts. Emailed copies of this Wellness Advocate Agreement shall be deemed an original. To be valid, copies submitted to dōTERRA by email must include the front and back of the document.

17. Data Protection. I give consent for dōTERRA to process the personal data contained in this application/ agreement and to transfer this personal data, together with information about this Wellness Advocate account’s future sales activities, to any of dōTERRA’s worldwide subsidiaries and affiliated companies, and to other dōTERRA account holders who are in the same sales organization or distribution chain for the purpose of administering the sales and distribution of dōTERRA products and providing activity reports to dōTERRA’s worldwide subsidiaries, affiliated companies, and to other dōTERRA account holders in the sales organizations. I understand that this transfer of information may be made to countries without a level of legal protection of privacy equivalent to that provided in my home country. I understand that if I receive activity reports, including sales reports, containing personal data of other dōTERRA account holders’ activities, I agree that I will not use such data except in the administration and development of my sales organization, and that upon termination of my Contract, I will immediately delete all such personal data from my files, except as otherwise required by law.
