- Just get in and your downline will build through spillover.
- Just join and I’ll build your downline for you.
- The Company does all the work for you.
- You don’t have to sell anything.
- All you have to do is buy your products every month.
The above are just examples of improper representations about the compensation plan and the Company’s program.

This conduct constitutes Recruiting even if the Stylist or former Stylist’s actions are in response to an inquiry made by another Stylist or customer. An action that is reasonably foreseeable to result in causing a Stylist to contact another Stylist or former Stylist (“Individual X”) about Individual X’s business activities or products he/she is selling is “Recruiting” and is a violation of this Policy.
The term “Network Marketing Business” means any business that utilizes independent contractors to sell its goods or services, and such independent contractors are entitled to recruit, sponsor or enroll other independent contractors and independent contractors are compensated in whole or in part on the purchases or sales of other independent contractors.

- Sales Receipts. A receipt will automatically be sent by the Company via email to a customer at the time the order is placed.

Unearned compensation will be deducted, in the month in which the refund is issued or the chargeback occurs and continuing every pay period thereafter until the commission is recovered, from the upline Stylists who received bonuses and commissions on the sales of the refunded products. Likewise if it is the responsibility of a Stylist to issue a refund to a customer, but Style Life issues the refund, the Company may deduct the amount refunded to the customer from the Stylist’s subsequent bonuses and commissions.
Style Life reserves the right to withhold or reduce any Stylist’s compensation as it deems necessary to comply with any garnishment or court order directing Style Life to retain, hold, or redirect such compensation to a third party.

- Equitable Relief. You agree and stipulate that any violation of Policy 25 and/or 27 will cause Style Life irreparable harm for which there is no adequate remedy at law, and that the harm to the Style Life if no equitable relief is awarded will outweigh any potential harm to you if equitable relief is awarded to the Company. Therefore, the Style Life shall be entitled to immediate and permanent equitable relief, without bond, to prevent further violation of either policy in addition to recovering actual damages it incurs.

This includes the right to represent yourself as an Independent Style Life Stylist, to sell Style Life products and services and the right to receive commissions, bonuses, or other income resulting from his/her own sales and the sales and other activities of the Stylist and the Stylist’s former downline sales organization.

- Any act or omission in a Stylist’s professional or personal capacity that a reasonable person would believe is more likely than not to damage the Company’s reputation or goodwill.
- Business Transfe Stylists in good standing who wish to sell or transfer their business must receive Style Life’s prior written approval before the business may be transferred. A business that is on disciplinary probation, suspension, or under disciplinary investigation is not in good standing and may not be transferred unless and until the disciplinary matter is resolved. Requests to transfer a business must be submitted in writing to [email protected]. The request to transfer will be denied if the business is not in good standing or if there is another reasonable reason for denying the request. Prior to transferring a business to a third party, the Stylist must offer the Company the right of first refusal to purchase the business on the same terms as negotiated with a third party. The Company shall have ten days to exercise its right of first refusal.
- Transfer Upon a Stylist’s Death. A Stylist may devise his/her business to his/her heirs. Because Style Life cannot divide commissions among multiple beneficiaries or transferees, the beneficiaries or transferees must form a business entity (corporation, LLC, partnership, etc.), and Style Life will transfer the business and issue commissions to the business entity. In the case of a business transfer via testamentary instrument, the beneficiary of the business must provide Style Life with certified letters testamentary and written instructions of the trustee of the estate, or an order of the court, that provides direction on the proper disposition of the business. The beneficiary must also execute and submit to the Company a Style Life Stylist Agreement within 30 days from the date on which the business is transferred by the estate to the beneficiary or the business will be cancelled.
- Business Distribution Upon Divorce. Style Life is not able to divide commissions among multiple parties, nor is it able to divide a downline organization. Consequently, in divorce cases, any settlement or divorce decree must award the business in its entirety to one party. Style Life will recognize as the owner of the business the former spouse to who is awarded the business pursuant to a legally binding settlement agreement or decree of the court. The former spouse who receives the Style Life business must also execute and submit a Style Life Stylist Agreement within 30 days from the date on which the divorce becomes final or the business will be cancelled.
- Dissolution of a Business Entity. Style Life is not able to divide commissions among multiple parties, nor is it able to divide a downline organization. Consequently, in the event that a business entity that operates a Style Life business dissolves, the owners of the business entity must instruct the Company on the identity of the proper party who is to receive the business. The Style Life business must be awarded to a single individual or entity that was previously recognized by the Company as an owner of the business entity; the Company cannot divide the business among multiple parties or issue separate commission payments. If the business entity wishes to sell or transfer its Style Life business, it must do so pursuant to policy 50. In addition, the recipient of the Style Life business must also execute and submit a Style Life Stylist Agreement to the Company within 30 days from the date of the dissolution of the business entity or the Style Life business will be cancelled.
- Inducing Stylists to Violate the Agreement. Stylists shall not directly or indirectly induce, encourage, or assist another Stylist to violate the Agreement.
- Reporting Errors. If a Stylist believes that Style Life has made an error in his/her compensation, the structure or organization of his/her genealogy, or any other error that impacts the Stylist’s income, he/she must report it to the Company in writing within 60 days from the date on which the mistake occurred. While Style Life shall use its best efforts to correct errors reported more than 60 days after the date of the error, Style Life shall not be responsible to make changes or remunerate Stylists for losses for mistakes that are reported more than 60 days after the mistake occurs.
- International Activities. Stylists may not sell Style Life products or conduct business activities of any nature in any foreign country that the Company has not announced is officially open for business.
- If any policy is determined to be unenforceable, only the unenforceable policy shall be severed from the Agreement and all remaining policies shall remain in effect.
- Any provision, which by its terms is to be performed after the termination of this Agreement shall survive the expiration or termination of the Agreement, regardless of the reason for its expiration or termination. In addition to the foregoing, the following policies shall survive the cancellation or expiration of this Agreement regardless of the reason for its expiration or cancellation: the Arbitration and Dispute Resolution policy; policies 1, 6, 8, 9, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 20, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 31, 32, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 52, 53, 55 and 57.
