NEW APPLICANT DISCLOSURES AND ACKNOWLEDGMENTS
The new Applicant acknowledges having read and understood the following terms:
1. Application Fee
a) I understand that in order to become an authorized Juice Plus+ Independent Partner (IP), I must complete an application and pay a 50€ fee to market the Juice Plus+ brand (referred to as a Juice Plus+ Business) and that apart from these conditions, there are no other payments or purchases I must make to become a Juice Plus+ IP. I also understand that if I wish to build a successful retailing business, I should expect to spend personal time and effort and to incur additional expenses for such items as products for personal use & samples, promotional items, travel, and telephone expenses.
b) The term of an IP’s Juice Plus+ Business expires each year on the anniversary of their original sign-up date. In order to remain an authorized IP and maintain all of the rights thereof, Juice Plus+ requires the execution of an annual renewal agreement (Renewal) and the payment of a 45€ Renewal fee prior to the IP’s anniversary date each year. If the Renewal and fee are not received prior to the anniversary date, the IP’s Juice Plus+ Business will be suspended, and all of the rights of the IP, including the rights to receive commissions and bonuses and to sponsor new IP’s, will be placed on hold. If the Renewal and fee are not received within 90 days after the anniversary date, the Juice Plus+ Business will be cancelled, and upon such cancellation, any and all commissions and bonuses that have been held by Juice Plus+ will be forfeited by the cancelled IP.
2. Refund Policy
I understand that any purchases of product by me are strictly voluntary and that except where otherwise provided by applicable law, my right to return any inventory to The Juice Plus Company is limited by the terms in Rule 8.5 of the Rules of Operation & Conduct of a Juice Plus+ Business and related provisions of my agreement.
3. Definition and Business Relationship of a Juice Plus+ Independent Partner (IP)
a) I understand that as a Juice Plus+ IP, I am an independent self-employed contractor. The contract between Juice Plus+ and me does not create or imply a legal partnership relationship or an employer/employee/worker relationship, agency, or joint venture between Juice Plus+ and me. I agree not to portray myself as an employee, worker, agent or legal partner of Juice Plus+.
b) I understand that I am responsible for compliance with all matters associated with my status as an independent self-employed contractor including payment of all tax and social security contributions and ensuring that I have all licenses, registrations, permits and insurance, required in order to conduct my activities.
c) I understand that my relationship with Juice Plus+ and my activities will be carried out as a self- employed businessperson. I am not authorized to bind Juice Plus+ or to incur any obligation on behalf of Juice Plus+. I also understand that my sponsor and upline IPs are not authorized to bind Juice Plus+ or to make representations except to the extent expressly permitted by the terms of the Rules of Operation and Conduct of a Juice Plus+ Business. The Juice Plus+ compensation plan determines performance requirements to obtain rewards for the successful fulfillment of contractual duties.
4. No Guarantees
a) I understand that a direct selling program such as the Juice Plus+ Business, is a competitive business subject to all risks associated with any business venture and that Juice Plus+ makes no guarantees or assurances whatsoever regarding any sales success, income or loss which may result from my activities as a Juice Plus+ IP. Juice Plus+ therefore cautions new participants not to leave existing employment, but to start part-time to pursue a Juice Plus+ Business.
b) I understand that the Juice Plus+ sales program, as set forth in current official literature of Juice Plus+, describes payments of bonuses and commissions based upon my purchase volume and that of my downline.

b) I understand that Juice Plus+ reserves the right to amend the Juice Plus+ program and provisions for IP compensation as contained in the Compensation Plan and the Rules of Operation and Conduct of a Juice Plus+ Business from time to time as it deems appropriate. I acknowledge that changes in the Compensation Plan may affect my percentage of compensation. I agree that at such time such changes occur I may elect either to continue as an IP subject to the new changes or terminate my Juice Plus+ Business. Juice Plus+ Partners will be informed in advance of any changes in writing or online.
c) This agreement cannot be amended or modified, and no term may be waived except in writing signed by a Juice Plus+ officer. Any attempted amendment, modification, or waiver that does not comply with the preceding sentence will be void.
