A. Retail Store Policy. With written approval from the Company, a Wellness Advocate may sell products and/or promote the dōTERRA business opportunity through retail stores such as health food stores, grocery stores, and other such establishments, except in such stores or establishments that, in the Company’s sole discretion, are large enough to be considered state, regional or national chains.
B. Online Sales. Wellness Advocates may not sell dōTERRA products through online auctions or mall sites or other third party branded online platforms, including but not limited to Walmart.com, Taobao.com, Alibaba, Tmal.com, Tencent platforms, Yahoo!, eBay or Amazon. Wellness Advocates may sell dōTERRA products through dōTERRA Replicated Websites and websites that comply with Section 12D9. Products that have been separated from a kit or package may not be sold online.
C. Service Establishments. Wellness Advocates may sell products through service establishments that provide services related to the products. For example, dōTERRA products may be sold through health clubs, spas, and gyms.
D. Suitability. The Company reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to make a final determination as to whether an establishment is a suitable place for the sale of the products. The Company’s granting of permission in a particular case does not waive its right to enforce this policy in any and all other cases.
E. Trade Show Policy. Wellness Advocates wishing to display, promote and sell the dōTERRA products and opportunity in connection with a trade show or public event may rent a booth or set up an exhibit at a trade show, public event, or convention ("Convention"), subject to the Company's prior written approval of the Convention and the Wellness Advocate’s compliance with the following requirements:
1. Complete and submit to the Company an Event Submission Form. This form can be located in the online dōTERRA Virtual Office.
2. In order to obtain a booth and secure exclusive rights, the Company must receive a form requesting permission to participate at least four weeks prior to the show.
3. The Company reserves the right to only allow one booth representing the Company and products per show. Only dōTERRA products and/or opportunity may be offered in the trade show booth. Only dōTERRA produced marketing materials may be displayed or distributed. A purchase of a Company Wellness Advocate banner, to display in the booth, is required. Exclusive rights are granted in the sole discretion of the Company.
4. The Wellness Advocate will not reference dōTERRA in any form of advertisement or promotional material that implies that dōTERRA is participating in the Convention. Instead, any Company-approved advertisement or promotional material must make specific reference to the Wellness Advocate as a Wellness Advocate of dōTERRA, including any maps or listings prepared by the sponsor of the Convention.
5. The Wellness Advocate will not make any exaggerated or unrepresentative earnings representations including any lavish lifestyle income claims.
6. The Wellness Advocate will not use the Convention to promote any product, service, or business opportunity other than the dōTERRA business in which the Wellness Advocate may be involved.
7. During the Convention the Wellness Advocate must personally comply with the Policy Manual and is responsible for (i) the actions of every person who works in the booth at the Convention, (ii) all material distributed at the Convention, and (iii) all other aspects of participation in the Convention.
8. In addition to the other remedies provided in the Policy Manual, the Company reserves the right to deny future Convention participation for any policy violation at a Convention.
