Unauthorized Recruiting - As an independent contractor, Independent Lumaxa Entrepreneurs may participate in other direct selling or network marketing or multilevel marketing ventures (collectively, "multilevel marketing"), and Independent Entrepreneurs may engage in selling activities related to non-LUMAXA products and services, if they desire to do so. Although an Independent Entrepreneur may elect to participate in another multilevel marketing opportunity, he/she is prohibited from unauthorized recruiting activities, which include the following: recruiting or enrolling LUMAXA customers or Independent Entrepreneurs for other multilevel marketing business ventures, either directly or through a third party. This includes, but is not limited to, presenting or assisting in the presentation of other multilevel marketing business ventures to any LUMAXA Customer or Independent Entrepreneur, or implicitly or explicitly encouraging any LUMAXA Customer or Independent Entrepreneur to join other business ventures. It is a violation of this policy to recruit or enroll a LUMAXA Customer or Independent Entrepreneur for another multilevel marketing business, even if the Independent Entrepreneur does not know that the prospect is also a LUMAXA Customer or Independent Entrepreneur; producing any literature, tapes, or promotional material of any nature for another multilevel marketing business which is used by the Independent Entrepreneur or any third person to recruit LUMAXA Customers or Independent Entrepreneurs for that business venture; selling, offering to sell, or promoting any competing products or services to LUMAXA Customers or Independent Entrepreneurs.

Violations of this policy are especially detrimental to the growth and sales of other Independent Entrepreneurs' LUMAXA businesses and to LUMAXA's business; where an Independent Entrepreneur participates in other multilevel marketing ventures they may not participate in LUMAXA's Leadership Bonus Program. Nor may they be invited to participate in LUMAXA leadership meetings, conferences, qualification seminars, and the like.

This provision shall survive the termination or expiration of this Agreement.
Corporation, Partnerships, and Trusts - A corporation, partnership, or trust (collectively referred to in this section as an "Entity") may apply to be a Independent Lumaxa Entrepreneur by submitting its Certificate of Incorporation, Partnership Agreement, or trust documents (these documents are collectively referred to as the "Entity Documents") to LUMAXA along with a properly completed Corporation, Partnership DBA Registration Form. An Independent Entrepreneurship may change its status under the same sponsor from an individual to a partnership, corporation, or trust, or from one type of entity to another. To do so, the Independent Entrepreneur(s) must provide the entity documents and a properly completed Independent Entrepreneur Application and Agreement and the appropriate registration form. The Corporation, Partnership DBA Registration Form must be signed by all of the directors, shareholders, partners, trustees, or other individuals having ownership interest in the business. Members of the entity are jointly and severally liable for any indebtedness or other obligations to LUMAXA. As set forth herein, no individual may participate directly or indirectly in more than one Independent Entrepreneurship. It is the responsibility of those persons involved in the Entity to conform to the laws of the state in which their Entity is formed. LUMAXA reserves the right to approve or disapprove any Independent Entrepreneur Application and Agreement submitted by an Entity. For the purpose of recognition and rewards, LUMAXA will only recognize a maximum of two persons in the Entity. The Entity must nominate each year, at its Independent Entrepreneurship renewal time, the two nominees who may be the recipients of any recognition, rewards, trips, and the like which the entity becomes entitled to participate in.
Deceptive Practices - Independent Entrepreneurs must fairly and truthfully explain the LUMAXA products, opportunity, Compensation Plan, and Policies and Procedures to prospective Independent Entrepreneurs. This includes: Being honest and thorough in presenting material from the LUMAXA Compensation Plan to all potential Independent Entrepreneurs; making clear that income from the LUMAXA Compensation Plan is based on product sales and not merely on sponsoring other Independent Entrepreneurs; making estimates of profit that are based on reasonable predictions for what an average Independent Entrepreneur would achieve in normal circumstances; representing that past earnings in a given set of circumstances do not necessarily reflect future earnings; not misrepresenting the amount of expenditure that an average Independent Entrepreneur might incur in carrying on the business; not misrepresenting the amount of time an average Independent Entrepreneur would have to devote to the business to achieve the profit estimated, and not stating that profits or earnings are guaranteed for any individual Independent Entrepreneur; never stating or inferring that you will build a Downline Organization for anyone else; never stating that profits or earnings are guaranteed for an individual Independent Entrepreneur; and never stating that any consumer, business, or government agency has approved or endorsed the LUMAXA products or its Compensation Plan; never participating in downline purchasing (placing a sales order in a Retail Account other than where the sale was generated).
Independent Contractor Status - Independent Entrepreneurs are independent contractors and are not purchasers of a franchise or business opportunity. The agreement between LUMAXA and its Independent Entrepreneurs does not create an employer/employee relationship, agency, partnership, or joint venture between the Company and the Independent Entrepreneur. All Independent Entrepreneurs are responsible for paying their own income and employment taxes. Independent Entrepreneurs will not be treated as employees
for any purpose including, but not limited to, workers compensation, superannuation, or insurance. Each Independent Entrepreneur is encouraged to establish his/her own goals, hours, and methods of sale, so long as he/she complies with applicable laws and the terms and conditions of the Independent Entrepreneur Agreement.
Business Insurance Coverage - You may obtain insurance coverage for your business activities.
Product Liability Coverage - LUMAXA maintains insurance through Nutra Pharma to protect the Company and Independent Entrepreneurs against product liability claims. The insurance policy contains a "Vendors Endorsement" which extends coverage to Independent Entrepreneurs so long as they are marketing LUMAXA products in accordance with applicable laws and regulations and the Independent Entrepreneur Agreement. LUMAXA's product liability policy does not extend coverage to claims that arise as a result of an Independent Entrepreneur's misconduct in marketing the products.
International - Independent Entrepreneurs may sell and promote LUMAXA's products, opportunity, and services or recruit or enroll any potential Independent Entrepreneur or customer only in countries in which LUMAXA is approved for business, as announced in official LUMAXA communications. If an Independent Entrepreneur desires to conduct business in an authorized country other than the one in which they are an Independent Entrepreneur, he/ she must comply with all the applicable laws and regulations for that country.
Adherence to Laws and Ordinances - You must obey all laws that apply to your business.
Independent Entrepreneurship limited to 1 - An Independent Entrepreneur may operate, receive compensation from, or have an ownership interest, legal or equitable, as a sole proprietorship, partner, shareholder, trustee, or beneficiary, in only one Independent Lumaxa Entrepreneurship. However, notwithstanding this rule, your spouse may become an Independent Entrepreneur and operate a second Independent Entrepreneurship as long your spouse's Independent Entrepreneurship is placed below one of your Independent Entrepreneurships and not in a cross line sales organization. The second Independent Entrepreneurship must be a bona fide Independent Entrepreneurship that is operated by the person listed on the agreement and not by the owner of the first Independent Entrepreneurship.
Sale, Transfer, or Assignment of Independent Entrepreneurship - An Independent Entrepreneur may not sell, transfer, or assign their Independent Entrepreneurship rights to any person or entity without LUMAXA's express written approval. To obtain approval, you must: be an Independent Entrepreneur in good standing as determined by LUMAXA in its sole discretion; before any transfer will be approved by LUMAXA, any debt obligations the selling Independent Entrepreneur has with LUMAXA must be satisfied; the transferring Independent Entrepreneur must be in good standing and not in violation of any of the terms of the Independent Entrepreneur Agreement or these Policies and Procedures, to transfer his/her Independent Entrepreneurship; the combining of Independent Entrepreneurships is not permitted. LUMAXA will not approve the transfer of an Independent Entrepreneurship to any individual or Entity that is a current Independent Entrepreneur or who has an ownership interest in any Independent Entrepreneurship. Similarly, LUMAXA will not approve the transfer of an Independent Entrepreneurship to any individual or Entity that has previously had any ownership interest in or operated, a Independent Lumaxa Entrepreneurship; no individual Business Centers may be transferred separately from the Independent Entrepreneurship. If an Independent Entrepreneur wishes to transfer his/her Independent Entrepreneurship, all Business Centers must be included in the transfer; the transferring Independent Entrepreneur must notify the LUMAXA Compliance Department of his/her intent to transfer the Independent Entrepreneurship by completing and submitting a signed Transfer of Distributorship and Independent Entrepreneur Application Form. No changes in line of sponsorship can result from the transfer of an Independent Entrepreneurship; the transferee must be eligible to become a Independent Lumaxa Entrepreneur and be acceptable to LUMAXA in every respect.
Separation of an Independent Entrepreneurship - If Independent Entrepreneurs wish to dissolve their jointly held Independent Entrepreneurship, they must do so in such a way as to not disturb the income or interests of their Upline and Downline Organizations. Independent Entrepreneurs should consider the following when deciding whether or not to dissolve a jointly held Independent Entrepreneurship: if a jointly owned Independent Entrepreneurship is dissolved, anyone of the joint owners may operate the Independent Entrepreneurship, but the other joint owners must relinquish their rights to, and interests in, the Independent Entrepreneurship; LUMAXA cannot divide a Downline Organization, nor can it split commission or bonus checks between the joint owners; if a jointly owned Independent Entrepreneurship is dissolved, the individual(s) who relinquished ownership in the original Independent Entrepreneurship may apply as new Independent Entrepreneurs under any Sponsor but may not purchase or join an existing Independent Entrepreneurship.
Succession - If an Independent Entrepreneur dies or becomes incapacitated, his/her rights to commissions, bonuses, and Downline Organization, together with all Independent Entrepreneur responsibilities, will pass to his/her successor(s). Upon death or incapacitation, the successor(s) must present the LUMAXA
Compliance Department with proof of death or incapacitation, along with proof of succession, such as a Grant of Probate or an Enduring Power of Attorney, and a properly completed Independent Entrepreneur Application and Agreement. You may inherit and retain another Independent Entrepreneurship even though you currently own or operate an Independent Entrepreneurship. A non-Independent Entrepreneur who acquires a Independent Entrepreneurship through succession must purchase a current Business Starter Kit.
Taxes - Independent Lumaxa Entrepreneurs must comply with all relevant taxation legislation. Independent Entrepreneurs should seek professional advice from their own accountant or tax advisor as to how to keep proper business records and account for tax aspects of their independent business. Independent Entrepreneurs' LUMAXA income may be subject to income tax and so must be properly accounted for in annual income tax returns. Independent Entrepreneurs conducting their LUMAXA business in a business-like manner may also be entitled to deduct certain expenses incurred in earning their LUMAXA income. Such expenses should be properly recorded and evidenced with receipts.
Telephone and Email Solicitation - The use of any automated telephone solicitation equipment in connection with the marketing or promotion of LUMAXA, its products, or the LUMAXA opportunity is strictly prohibited. The use of "boiler-room" telemarketing operations to sell products or services over the telephone, or to recruit Independent Entrepreneurs, is strictly prohibited. Independent Entrepreneurs are also forbidden from sending unsolicited e-mail messages or "spamming" to sell products or to recruit Independent Entrepreneurs. Independent Entrepreneurs should also make themselves familiar with relevant privacy legislation.
Territories - There are no exclusive territories for marketing LUMAXA products or services, nor shall any Independent Entrepreneur imply or state that he/she has an exclusive territory to market LUMAXA products or services.
Trade Shows and Expositions - Independent Entrepreneurs may display and/or sell LUMAXA products at trade shows and expositions, but may not display or sell LUMAXA products at swap meets, garage sales, flea markets, or farmers' markets as these events are not conducive to the image LUMAXA wishes to portray. LUMAXA cannot supply inventory on consignment to Independent Entrepreneurs operating stands at such events. All literature displayed at the event must be official LUMAXA literature and must clearly identify the individual(s) as Independent Entrepreneurs.
Transfer of Sponsorship
Conflicting Enrolments - Every prospective Independent Entrepreneur has the ultimate right to choose his/her own Sponsor. As a general rule, the first Independent Entrepreneur who does meaningful work with a prospective Independent Entrepreneur is considered to have first claim to sponsorship. Basic tenets of common sense and consideration should govern any dispute that may arise. In the event that a prospective Independent Entrepreneur or any Independent Entrepreneur on behalf of a prospective Independent Entrepreneur, submits more than one Independent Entrepreneur Application and Agreement to LUMAXA, listing a different Sponsor on each, the Company will only consider valid the first Independent Entrepreneur Application and Agreement that it receives, accepts, and processes. If there is any question concerning the sponsorship of an Independent Entrepreneur, the final decision will be made by LUMAXA.
Cross-line Raiding - LUMAXA will not permit any change in the line of sponsorship except in the following circumstances: where an Independent Entrepreneur has been fraudulently or unethically induced into joining LUMAXA; where an incorrect placement was made due to an Independent Entrepreneur error, a change in the line of sponsorship can be made to correct the error where a request for a change is made within 10 days of enrolment. If you make such a request, you must also submit the written consent of your Sponsor and that person's Sponsor along with the required placement change fee. If at the time of the request you have any downline organization in place, no change will be permitted in the line of sponsorship. In the event that such a change is approved, commissions and bonuses earned will be adjusted accordingly. In no case will a change of placement be approved where a signed application has not been received by LUMAXA; if you terminate your Independent Entrepreneurship in writing you may rejoin under the Sponsor of your choice after a period of six (6) months; following termination of your Independent Entrepreneurship, you may participate as a Customer during the six (6) month period. In the event you terminate your Independent Entrepreneurship, you forfeit all rights, bonuses, and commissions under your previous line of sponsoring. You may not avoid compliance with this policy through the use of DBAs, assumed names, corporations, partnerships, trusts, spouse names, fictitious ID numbers, etc. If you have been "inactive" (i.e., no purchases or sales of LUMAXA products or participation in any other form as an Independent Entrepreneur) for a period of twelve (12) successive months, you may terminate your; Independent Entrepreneurship in writing and rejoin immediately under the Sponsor of your choice; cross-line raiding is strictly prohibited. "Cross-line raiding" is defined as the enrolment or attempted enrolment of an individual or Entity that already has a current Independent Entrepreneur Agreement on file with LUMAXA, or who has had such agreement within the preceding six (6) calendar months within a different line of sponsorship. The use of trade names, DBAs, assumed names, corporations, partnerships, trusts, spouse names, fictitious ID numbers or any other vehicle to circumvent this policy is prohibited. Independent Entrepreneurs may not demean, discredit, or invalidate other Independent Lumaxa Entrepreneurs in an attempt to entice another Independent Entrepreneur to become part of the first Independent Entrepreneur's Downline Organization.
Responsibilities of Independent Entrepreneurs and Sponsors
Ongoing Supervision, Training, and Sales - Any Independent Entrepreneur who sponsors another Independent Entrepreneur into LUMAXA must train the new Independent Entrepreneur in product knowledge, effective sales techniques, the Compensation Plan, and the Policies and Procedures. Independent Entrepreneurs must also supervise and monitor Independent Entrepreneurs in their Downline Organization to ensure they conduct business professionally and ethically, promote sales properly, and provide quality customer service. As an Independent Entrepreneur progresses through the various levels of leadership, his/her responsibilities to train and motivate downline Independent Entrepreneurs will increase.
Non-Disparagement - In setting the proper example for their downline, Independent Entrepreneurs must not disparage other Independent Lumaxa Entrepreneurs, LUMAXA's Products, the Compensation Plan, or the Company's employees. Such disparagement constitutes a material breach of these Policies and Procedures.
Holding Applications or Orders - All Independent Entrepreneurs must forward to LUMAXA any forms and applications they receive from other Independent Entrepreneurs or applicant Independent Entrepreneurs, or Customers or applicant Customers, on the next business day after which the forms or applications are signed.
Reporting Policy Violations - Independent Entrepreneurs should report any observed violations of a policy violation to the LUMAXA Compliance Department.
Product Sales - The LUMAXA Compensation Plan is based upon the sale of LUMAXA products and services to end consumers. Independent Entrepreneurs must fulfil specified personal and Downline Organization sales requirements (as well as meet other responsibilities set forth in these Policies and Procedures and Compensation Plan) in order to be eligible for bonuses, commissions, and advancement to higher levels of rank and achievement. The following sales requirements must be satisfied in order for Independent Entrepreneurs to be eligible for commissions: a minimum of seventy percent (70%) of an Independent Entrepreneur's orders must be for Customers or end users. The sales volume of an Independent Entrepreneur's personally enrolled Customers shall be included for the purposes of determining compliance with the seventy percent (70%) requirement. Independent Entrepreneurs may not purchase additional product until at least seventy percent (70%) of the previous order has been sold to end consumers; Independent Entrepreneurs are required to furnish their person to person Retail Customers with a receipt which specifies the date of sale, the amount of sale, the items purchased, and the LUMAXA satisfaction guarantee. Independent Entrepreneurs must retain all retail sales receipts for a period of two (2) years and furnish them to LUMAXA at the Company's request. Records documenting the online purchases of Independent Entrepreneurs' Customers at the Retail Site will be maintained by LUMAXA.
Retail Customer Sales - Independent Entrepreneurs may sell LUMAXA products at any price they choose. All Independent Entrepreneurs must provide their Retail Customers with an official LUMAXA sales receipt. These receipts outline the Customer Refund Warranty for LUMAXA products, as well as any consumer protection rights. Sales made through the Independent Entrepreneur's online Retail Website will be made at the suggested retail price.
Excessive Purchases of Inventory Prohibited - LUMAXA strictly prohibits the purchase of products in unreasonable amounts solely for the purpose of qualifying for commissions, bonuses, or advancement in the Compensation Plan. Independent Entrepreneurs may not purchase more than they can reasonably resell or consume in any four- week rolling period, nor encourage others to do so. Independent Entrepreneurs are not required to carry inventory of products or sales aids. Independent Entrepreneurs who do so may find building a Downline Organization somewhat easier because of the decreased response time in filling customer orders or in meeting a new Independent Entrepreneur's needs. Each Independent Entrepreneur must make his/her own decision with regard to these matters.
Deposits - No monies should be paid to or accepted by Independent Entrepreneurs for a sale except at the time of product delivery.
Bonuses and Commissions
Bonus and Commission Cycles - LUMAXA pays commissions on weekly and monthly cycles to the Independent Entrepreneur's Virtual Account located in the ILE Back Office. An Independent Entrepreneur must review his/her commissions and report any errors or discrepancies to LUMAXA within ten (10) days from the date of the commission payment. Errors or discrepancies which are not brought to LUMAXA's attention within the 10 day period will be deemed waived by the Independent Entrepreneur.
Adjustment of Bonuses and Commissions - Independent Entrepreneurs earn commissions and bonuses based on product sales to End Consumers. Accordingly, LUMAXA will adjust commissions and bonuses earned from any sale when the Independent Entrepreneur or any other End Consumer returns the sold product for a refund. LUMAXA will deduct the sales volume attributable to the returned product from the Upline
Independent Entrepreneur's group volume within the first two (2) weeks after the refund is given.
Loss of Rights to Commissions - You must be an active Independent Entrepreneur and in compliance with the terms of the Independent Entrepreneur Agreement to qualify for commissions and bonuses.
Unclaimed Commissions - Independent Entrepreneurs who provide LUMAXA with incomplete or invalid bank account information will have their commission and bonus retained as a credit. Any unclaimed credit will be held in trust for 12 months, during which time LUMAXA may periodically notify the Independent Entrepreneurs in writing of their credit balance.
Product Guarantees, Returns, and Inventory Repurchase
Product Exchange Guarantee - LUMAXA warrants the quality of its products and shall exchange any defective product. Anyone returning a damaged or defective product must complete the Product Exchange or Return Form.
Retail Customers - LUMAXA obligates its Independent Entrepreneurs to honor the Company's 100%, unconditional, 30-day, money-back guarantee to all Retail Customers. If for any reason a Retail Customer is dissatisfied with any LUMAXA product, he/she may return the product to the Independent Entrepreneurs from whom the product was purchased within thirty (30) days from the date of purchase for a replacement, exchange, or full refund of the purchase price. If the Retail Customer requests a refund, the Independent Entrepreneurs who sold the product to the Retail Customer must immediately refund the Retail Customer's purchase price. (Retail Customers must return merchandise to the Independent Entrepreneurs who sold it to them; LUMAXA will not accept returned merchandise directly from Retail Customers.) The Independent Entrepreneurs, in turn, should complete a Customer Product Return Form and forward the form along with the original sales receipt and returned merchandise to LUMAXA within ten (10) days of the Customer's return. In the case of an exchange, LUMAXA will then replace the returned merchandise with like product and ship it to the Independent Entrepreneurs. All Retail Customers must be provided with a copy of an official LUMAXA sales receipt at the time of the sale.
Customers - LUMAXA offers Customers and Retail Customers who order directly from an official LUMAXA Website a 100%, thirty (30) day, money back guarantee on their initial product order. If for any reason a Customer is dissatisfied with any LUMAXA product, he/she may return that product to the Company within thirty (30) days for replacement, exchange, or full refund of the purchase price. If a Independent Entrepreneur returns merchandise equal to, or exceeding $100 of Sales Volume, this will be deemed a Voluntary Cancellation of the Independent Entrepreneur Agreement . For all other returns, the Company shall repurchase the inventory pursuant to the terms of this Agreement. Moreover, the Company will adjust the appropriate Independent Entrepreneurs' Sales Volume.

What is a chargeback? When a bank forcibly reverses a credit card transaction, returning funds to the cardholder, it is known as a chargeback. Chargebacks are usually issued when fraudulent purchases have been made on a person's credit card.
