It is the responsibility of each Member (“IiP”) to read, understand, adhere to, and insure that he or she is aware of and operating under the most current version of these Policies and Procedures. Throughout these Policies, when the term “Agreement” is used, it collectively refers to the i-AdMe membership Application and Agreement, these Policies and Procedures, the i-AdMe Compensation Plan (TheBePlan.com), and the i-AdMe Business Entity Application (if applicable). These documents are incorporated by reference into the Independent i-AdMe Partner Agreement, IiP (all in their current form and as amended by i-AdMe).
1.2 – Changes to the Agreement

By executing the Independent i-AdMe Partner Agreement, a IiP agrees to abide by all amendments or modifications that i-AdMe elects to make. Amendments shall be effective thirty (30) days after publication of notice that the Agreement has been modified. Amendments shall not apply retroactively to conduct that occurred prior to the effective date of the amendment. Notification of amendments shall be published by one or more of the following methods: (1) posting on the Company’s official web site; (2) electronic mail (e-mail); (3) posting in IiPs’ back-offices; (4) inclusion in Company periodicals; (5) inclusion in product orders or bonus checks; or (6) special mailings. The continuation of a IiP’s i-AdMe business, the acceptance of any benefits under the Agreement, or a IiP’s acceptance of bonuses or commissions constitutes acceptance of all amendments.
1.3 – Policies and Provisions Severable
If any provision of the Agreement, in its current form or as may be amended, is found to be invalid, or unenforceable for any reason, only the invalid portion(s) of the provision shall be severed and the remaining terms and provisions shall remain in full force and effect. The severed provision, or portion thereof, shall be reformed to reflect the purpose of the provision as closely as possible.
1.4 – Waiver
The Company never gives up its right to insist on compliance with the Agreement and with the applicable laws governing the conduct of a business. No failure of i-AdMe to exercise any right or power under the Agreement or to insist upon strict compliance by a Member with any obligation or provision of the Agreement, and no custom or practice of the parties at variance with the terms of the Agreement, shall constitute a waiver of i-AdMe’s right to demand exact compliance with the Agreement. The existence of any claim or cause of action of a Member against i-AdMe shall not constitute a defense to i-AdMe’s enforcement of any term or provision of the Agreement.

Attempts to mislead web traffic into believing they are going to an i-AdMe corporate site, when in fact they land at a Member site will not be allowed. The determination as to what is misleading or what constitutes a reasonable reader will be at i-AdMe’s sole discretion.
4.3.5 – Online Classifieds
You may not use online classifieds (including Craigslist) to list, sell or retail specific i-AdMe products or product bundles. You may use online classifieds (including Craigslist) for prospecting, recruiting, sponsoring and informing the public about the i-AdMe community network, provided i-Adme approved templates/images are used.

4.3.10 – Sponsored Links / Pay-Per-Click (PPC) Ads

4.3.12 – Social Media
Social Media may be used by IiPs to share information about the i-AdMe business opportunity and for prospecting and sponsoring. However, Partners who elect to use Social Media must adhere to the Policies and Procedures in all respects.
Social Media sites may not be used to sell or offer to sell specific i-AdMe products or services. Profiles a Partner generates in any social community where i-AdMe is discussed or mentioned must clearly identify the Partner as an Independent i-AdMe Partner, and when a Partner participates in those communities, Partners must avoid inappropriate conversations, comments, images, video, audio, applications or any other adult, profane, discriminatory or vulgar content. The determination of what is inappropriate is at i-AdMe’s sole discretion, and offending Partners will be subject to disciplinary action. Banner ads and images used on these sites must be current and must come from the i-AdMe approved library. If a link is provided, it must link to the posting Partner’s i-Adme Profile Website.
Partners may not use blog spam, spamdexing or any other mass-replicated methods to leave blog comments. Comments Partners create or leave must be useful, unique, relevant and specific to the blog’s article.
220.127.116.11 – Partners Are Responsible for Postings
Partners are personally responsible for their postings and all other online activity that relates to i-AdMe. Therefore, even if a Partner does not own or operate a blog or Social Media site, if a Partner posts to any such site that relates to i-AdMe or which can be traced to i-AdMe, the IiP is responsible for the posting. IiPs are also responsible for postings which occur on any blog or Social Media site that the partner owns, operates, or controls.
18.104.22.168 – Identification as an Independent i-AdMe Partner
You must disclose your full name on all Social Media postings, and conspicuously identify yourself as an Independent i-AdMe Partner for i-AdMe. Anonymous postings or use of an alias is prohibited.
22.214.171.124 – Social Media as a Sales and Promotion Forum
Social Media sites are relationship-building sites. While building relationships is an important part of the sales process, Social Media sites may not be used as a direct medium for generating sales or explaining the i-AdMe income opportunity. Online sales may only be generated from a IiP’s i-AdMe profile website. Likewise, Partners shall not use any Social Media site to explain the i-AdMe revenue share plan or any component of the revenue share plan.
126.96.36.199 – Deceptive Postings
Postings that are false, misleading, or deceptive are prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to, false or deceptive postings relating to the i-AdMe income opportunity, i-AdMe’s products and services, and/or your biographical information and credentials.
188.8.131.52 – Use of Third Party Intellectual Property
If you use the trademarks, trade names, service marks, copyrights, or intellectual property of any third party in any posting, it is your responsibility to ensure that you have received the proper license to use such intellectual property and pay the appropriate license fee. All third-party intellectual property must be properly referenced as the property of the third-party, and you must adhere to any restrictions and conditions that the owner of the intellectual property places on the use of its property.
184.108.40.206 – Respecting Privacy
Always respect the privacy of others in your postings. Partners must not engage in gossip or advance rumors about any individual, company, or competitive products or services. Partners may not list the names of other individuals or entities on their postings unless they have the written permission of the individual or entity that is the subject of their posting.
220.127.116.11 – Professionalism
You must ensure that your postings are truthful and accurate. This requires that you fact-check all material you post online. You should also carefully check your postings for spelling, punctuation, and grammatical errors. Use of offensive language is prohibited.
18.104.22.168 – Prohibited Postings
Partners may not make any postings, or link to any postings or other material that:
• Is sexually explicit, obscene, or pornographic;
• Is offensive, profane, hateful, threatening, harmful, defamatory, libelous, harassing, or discriminatory (whether based on race, ethnicity, creed, religion, gender, sexual orientation, physical disability, or otherwise);
• Is graphically violent, including any violent video game images;
• Is solicitous of any unlawful behavior;
• Engages in personal attacks on any individual, group, or entity;
• Is in violation of any intellectual property rights of the Company or any third party.
22.214.171.124 – Responding to Negative Posts
Do not converse with one who places a negative post against you, other independent Partners, or i-AdMe. Report negative posts to the Company at Negative@i-AdMe.com. Responding to such negative posts often simply fuels a discussion with someone carrying a grudge that does not hold themselves to the same high standards as i-AdMe, and therefore damages the reputation and goodwill of i-AdMe.
126.96.36.199 – Social Media Sites with Website-like Features
Because some social media sites are particularly robust, the distinction between a social media site and a website may not be clear cut. i-Adme therefore reserves the sole and exclusive right to classify certain social media sites as websites and require that Partners using, or who wish to use, such sites adhere to the Company’s policies relating to independent websites.
188.8.131.52 – Cancellation of Your i-AdMe account.
If your i-AdMe account is cancelled for any reason, you must discontinue using the i-AdMe name, and all of i-AdMe’s trademarks, trade names, service marks, and other intellectual property, and all derivatives of such marks and intellectual property, in any postings and all Social Media sites that you utilize. If you post on any Social Media site on which you have previously identified yourself as an independent i-AdMe partner, you must conspicuously disclose that you are no longer an independent i-AdMe partner.
4.4 – Business Entities
A corporation, limited liability company, partnership or trust (collectively referred to in this section as a “Business Entity”) may apply to be an i-AdMe partner by submitting a Application and Agreement along with a properly completed Business Entity Application and Agreement and a properly completed IRS form W-9. The Business Entity, as well as all shareholders, members, managers, partners, trustees, or other parties with any ownership interest in, or management responsibilities for, the Business Entity (collectively “Affiliated Parties”) are individually, jointly and severally liable for any indebtedness to i-AdMe, compliance with the i-AdMe Policies and Procedures, the i-AdMe Independent Partners Agreement, and other obligations to i-AdMe.
To prevent the circumvention of Sections 4.24 (regarding transfers and assignments of an i-AdMe business) and 4.5, (regarding Sponsorship Changes), if any Affiliated Party wants to terminate his or her relationship with the Business Entity or i-AdMe, the Affiliated Party must terminate his or her affiliation with the Business Entity, notify i-AdMe in writing that he or she has terminated his/her affiliation with the Business Entity, and must comply with the provisions of Section 4.24. In addition, the Affiliated Party foregoing their interest in the Business Entity may not participate in any other i-AdMe business for six consecutive calendar months in accordance with Section 4.5.2. If the Business Entity wishes to bring on any new Affiliated Party, it must adhere to the requirements of Section 4.24.
The modifications permitted within the scope of this paragraph do not include a change of sponsorship. Changes of sponsorship are addressed in Section 4.5, below. There is a $25.00 fee for each change requested, which must be included with the written request and the completed IiP Application and Agreement. i-AdMe may, at its discretion, require notarized documents before implementing any changes to an i-AdMe business. Please allow thirty (30) days after the receipt of the request by i-AdMe for processing.
4.4.1 – Changes to a Business Entity
Each IiP must immediately notify i-AdMe of all changes to type of business entity they utilize in operating their businesses and the addition or removal of business Affiliated Parties.
4.5 – Change of Sponsor
i-AdMe prohibits changes in sponsorship.
4.5.1 – Misplacement
In cases in which the new IiP is sponsored by someone other than the individual he or she was led to believe would be his or her Sponsor, a IiP may request that he or she be transferred to another organization with his or her entire marketing organization intact. Requests for transfer under this policy will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis and must be made within three days from the date of enrollment. Requests for change of sponsorship must be submitted in writing to the IiP Services Department within three (3) days of the Partner’s enrollment, and must include the reason for the transfer. The IiP requesting the change has the burden of proving that he or she was placed beneath the wrong sponsor. It is up to i-AdMe’s discretion whether the requested change will be implemented.
4.5.2 – Cancellation and Re-application
A IiP may legitimately change organizations by voluntarily canceling his or her i-AdMe business and remaining inactive (i.e., no purchases of i-AdMe products for resale, no sales of i-AdMe products, no sponsoring, no attendance at any i-AdMe functions, participation in any other form of IiP activity, or operation of any other i-AdMe business, no income from the i-AdMe business) for six (6) full calendar months. Following the six month period of inactivity, the former IiP may reapply under a new sponsor, however, the former IiP’s organization will remain in their original line of sponsorship.
4.6 – Waiver of Claims
In cases in which the appropriate sponsorship change procedures have not been followed, and a downline organization has been developed in the second business developed by a partner, i-AdMe reserves the sole and exclusive right to determine the final disposition of the downline organization. Resolving conflicts over the proper placement of a downline that has developed under an organization that has improperly switched sponsors is often extremely difficult. Therefore, PARTERS WAIVE ANY AND ALL CLAIMS AGAINST i-AdMe, ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, OWNERS, EMPLOYEES, AND AGENTS THAT RELATE TO OR ARISE FROM i-AdMe’s DECISION REGARDING THE DISPOSITION OF ANY DOWNLINE ORGANIZATION THAT DEVELOPS BELOW AN ORGANIZATION THAT HAS IMPROPERLY CHANGED LINES OF SPONSORSHIP.
4.7 – Unauthorized Claims and Actions
4.7.1 – Indemnification
A IiP is fully responsible for all of his or her verbal and written statements made regarding i-AdMe products, services, and the Revenue Share Plan that are not expressly contained in official i-AdMe materials. This includes statements and representations made through all sources of communication media, whether person-to-person, in meetings, online, through Social Media, in print, or any other means of communication. IiP agree to indemnify i-AdMe and i-AdMe’s directors, officers, employees, and agents, and hold them harmless from all liability including judgments, civil penalties, refunds, attorney fees, court costs, or lost business incurred by i-AdMe as a result of the IiP’s unauthorized representations or actions. This provision shall survive the termination of the Independent i-AdMe Partners Agreement.
4.7.2 – Income Claims
Because i-AdMe IiPs do not have the data necessary to comply with the legal requirements for making income claims, a IiP, when presenting or discussing the i-AdMe opportunity or Revenue Share Plan to a prospective Partner, may not make income projections, income claims, or disclose his or her i-AdMe income (including, but not limited to, the showing of checks, copies of checks, bank statements, or tax records).
4.7.3 – Income Disclosure Statement
i-AdMe’s corporate ethics compel us to do not merely what is legally required, but rather, to conduct the absolute best business practices. To this end, we have developed the i-AdMe Income Disclosure Statement (“IDS”). The i-AdMe IDS is designed to convey truthful, timely, and comprehensive information regarding the income that i-AdMe Partners earn. In order to accomplish this objective, a copy of the IDS must be presented to all prospective Partners.
A copy of the IDS must be presented to a prospective IiP (someone who is not a party to a current i-AdMe IiP Agreement) anytime the revenue Share Plan is presented or discussed, or any type of income claim or earnings representation is made.
The terms “income claim” and/or “earnings representation” (collectively “income claim”) include: (1) statements of actual earnings, (2) statements of projected earnings, (3) statements of earnings ranges, (4) income testimonials, (5) lifestyle claims, and (6) hypothetical claims.
A lifestyle income claim typically includes statements (or pictures) involving large homes, luxury cars, exotic vacations, or other items suggesting or implying wealth. They also consist of references to the achievement of one’s dreams, having everything one always wanted, and are phrased in terms of “opportunity” or “possibility” or “chance.” Claims such as “My i-AdMe revenue share (income) exceeded my salary after six months in the business,” or “Our i-AdMe business has allowed my wife to come home and be a full-time mom” also fall within the purview of “lifestyle” claims.
In any non-public meeting (e.g., a home meeting, one-on-one, regardless of venue) with a prospective IiP or IiPs in which the revenue Share Plan is discussed or any type of income claim is made, you must provide the prospect(s) with a copy of the IDS. In any meeting that is open to the public in which the Compensation Plan is discussed or any type of income claims is made, you must provide every prospective Rep with a copy of the IDS and you must display at least one (3 foot x 5 foot poster board) in the front of the room in reasonably close proximity to the presenter(s). In any meeting in which any type of video display is utilized (e.g., monitor, television, projector, etc.) a slide of the IDS must be displayed continuously throughout the duration of any discussion of the Revenue Share Plan or the making of an income claim.
Copies of the IDS may be printed or downloaded without charge from the corporate website at http://www.i-AdMe.com/IDS.
Reps who develop sales aids and tools in which the Revenue Share Plan or income claims are present must incorporate the IDS into each such sales aid or tool prior to submission to the Company for review.
4.8 – Commercial Outlets
Partners may not sell i-AdMe products from a commercial outlet, nor may Partners display or sell i-AdMe products or literature in any retail or service establishment. Online auction and/or sales facilitation websites, including but not limited to eBay and Craig’s List constitute Commercial Outlets, and may not be used to sell i-AdMe products.
4.9 – Trade Shows, Expositions and Other Sales Forums
Partners may display and/or sell i-AdMe products at trade shows and professional expositions. Before submitting a deposit to the event promoter, IiPs must contact the IiP Services department in writing for conditional approval, as i-AdMe’s policy is to authorize only one i-AdMe business per event. Final approval will be granted to the first IiP who submits an official advertisement of the event, a copy of the contract signed by both the IiP and the event official, and a receipt indicating that a deposit for the booth has been paid. Approval is given only for the event specified. Any requests to participate in future events must again be submitted to the IiPs Services Department. i-AdMe further reserves the right to refuse authorization to participate at any function which it does not deem a suitable forum for the promotion of its products, services, or the i-AdMe opportunity.
4.10 – Conflicts of Interest
4.10.1 – No solicitation
i-AdMe IiPs are free to participate in multilevel or network marketing business ventures or marketing opportunities (collectively “network marketing”).
4.10.2 – IiPs Participation in Network Marketing Programs
If a IiP is engaged in direct selling programs, it is the responsibility of the IiP to ensure that his or her i-AdMe business is operated entirely separate and apart from any other program. To this end, the following must be adhered to:
• IiPs must not sell, or attempt to sell, any competing non i-AdMe programs, products or services to i-AdMe Independent i-AdMe Partners. Any program, product or services in the same generic categories as i-AdMe products or services is deemed to be competing, regardless of differences in cost, quality or other distinguishing factors.
• IiPs shall not display i-AdMe promotional material, sales aids, products or services with or in the same location as, any non-i-AdMe promotional material or sales aids, products or services.
• IiPs shall not offer the i-AdMe opportunity, products or services to prospective or existing IiPs in conjunction with any non-i-AdMe program, opportunity, product or service.
• IiPs may not offer any non-i-AdMe opportunity, products, services or opportunity at any i-AdMe-related meeting, seminar, convention, webinar, teleconference, or other function.
4.10.3 – Confidential Information
“Confidential Information” includes, but is not limited to, Team Tracker Reports, the identities of i-AdMe customers and IiPs, contact information of i-AdMe customers and IiPs, IiPs’ personal and group sales volumes, and IiP rank and/or achievement levels. Confidential Information is, or may be available, to IiPs in their respective virtual offices. IiP access to such Confidential Information is password protected, and is confidential and constitutes proprietary information and business trade secrets belonging to i-AdMe. Such Confidential Information is provided to IiPs in strictest confidence and is made available to IiPs for the sole purpose of assisting IiPs in working with their respective organizations in the development of their i-AdMe business. IiPs may not use the reports for any purpose other than for developing their i-AdMe business. Where a IiP participates in multi-level marketing ventures, he/she is not eligible to have access to Team Tracker Reports. IiPs should use the Confidential Information to assist, motivate, and train their IiPs. The IiP and i-AdMe agree that, but for this agreement of confidentiality and nondisclosure, i-AdMe would not provide Confidential Information to the IiP.
To protect the Confidential Information, IiPs shall not, on his or her own behalf, or on behalf of any other person, partnership, association, corporation or other entity:
• Directly or indirectly disclose any Confidential Information to any third party;
• Directly or indirectly disclose the password or other access code to his or her virtual office;
• Use any Confidential Information to compete with i-AdMe or for any purpose other than promoting his or her i-AdMe business;
• Recruit or solicit any IiP of i-AdMe listed on any report or in the IiP’s virtual office, or in any manner attempt to influence or induce any IiP of i-AdMe, to alter their business relationship with i-AdMe; or
• Use or disclose to any person, partnership, association, corporation, or other entity any Confidential Information.
The obligation not to disclose Confidential Information shall survive cancellation or termination of the Agreement, and shall remain effective and binding irrespective of whether a IiP’s Agreement has been terminated, or whether the IiP is or is not otherwise affiliated with the Company.
4.11 – Targeting Direct Sellers
i-AdMe does not condone IiPs specifically or consciously targeting the sales force of direct sales company to sell i-AdMe products or to become IiPs for i-AdMe, nor does i-AdMe condone IiPs solicitation or enticement of members of the sales force of direct sales company to violate the terms of their contract with such company. Should IiPs engage in such activity, they bear the risk of being sued by the direct sales company. If any lawsuit, arbitration or mediation is brought against a IiP alleging that he or she engaged in inappropriate recruiting activity of its sales force or customers, i-AdMe will not pay any of the IiP’s defense costs or legal fees, nor will i-AdMe indemnify the IiP for any judgment, award, or settlement.
4.12 – Errors or Questions
If a IiP has questions about or believes any errors have been made regarding revenue share, bonuses, team tracker lists, or charges, the IiP must notify i-AdMe in writing within 60 days of the date of the purported error or incident in question. i-AdMe will not be responsible for any errors, revenue share, bonuses or problems not reported to the Company within 60 days.
4.13 – Governmental Approval or Endorsement
Neither federal nor state regulatory agencies or officials approve or endorse any direct selling or network marketing companies or programs. Therefore, IiPs shall not represent or imply that i-AdMe or its Revenue Share Plan have been “approved,” “endorsed” or otherwise sanctioned by any government agency.
4.14 – Holding Applications or Orders
IiPs must not manipulate enrollments of new applicants and purchases of products. All IiP Applications and Agreements, and product orders must be sent to i-AdMe within 72 hours from the time they are signed by a IiP or placed by a customer, respectively.
4.15 – Income Taxes
Each IiP is responsible for paying local, state/provincial, and federal taxes on any income generated as an Independent i-AdMe Partner. Unfortunately, we cannot provide you with any personal tax advice. Please consult your own tax accountant, tax attorney, or other tax professional. If a IiP’s i-AdMe business is tax exempt, the Federal tax identification number must be provided to i-AdMe. Every year, i-AdMe will provide an IRS Form 1099 MISC (Non-employee Compensation) earnings statement to each U.S. resident who: 1) Had earnings of over $600 in the previous calendar year; or 2) Made purchases during the previous calendar year in excess of $5,000.
4.16 – Independent Contractor Status
IiPs are independent contractors. The agreement between i-AdMe and its IiPs does not create an employer/employee relationship, agency, partnership, or joint venture between the Company and the IiP. IiPs shall not be treated as an employee for his or her services or for Federal or State tax purposes. All IiPs are responsible for paying local, state, and federal taxes due from all compensation earned as a IiP of the Company. The IiP has no authority (expressed or implied), to bind the Company to any obligation. Each IiP shall establish his or her own goals, hours, and methods of sale, so long as he or she complies with the terms of the IiP Agreement, these Policies and Procedures, and applicable laws.
4.17 – Insurance
You may wish to arrange insurance coverage for your business. Your homeowner’s insurance policy does not cover business-related injuries, or the theft of or damage to inventory or business equipment. Contact your insurance agent to make certain that your business property is protected. This can often be accomplished with a simple “Business Pursuit” endorsement attached to your present home owner’s policy.
4.18 – International Marketing
IiPs are authorized to sell i-AdMe products and services, and enroll IiPs only in the countries in which i-AdMe is authorized to conduct business, as announced in official Company literature. i-AdMe products or sales aids may not be shipped into or sold in any foreign country. IiPs may sell, give, transfer, or distribute i-AdMe products or sales aids only in their home country. In addition, no IiP may, in any unauthorized country: (a) conduct sales, enrollment or training meetings; (b) enroll or attempt to enroll potential customers or IiPs; or (c) conduct any other activity for the purpose of selling i-AdMe products, establishing a marketing organization, or promoting the i-AdMe opportunity.
4.19 – Adherence to Laws and Ordinances
IiPs shall comply with all federal, state, and local laws and regulations in the conduct of their businesses. Many cities and counties have laws regulating certain home-based businesses. In most cases these ordinances are not applicable to IiPs because of the nature of their business. However, IiPs must obey those laws that do apply to them. If a city or county official tells a IiP that an ordinance applies to him or her, the IiP shall be polite and cooperative, and immediately send a copy of the ordinance to the Compliance Department of i-AdMe.
4.20 – One i-AdMe Business Per IiP and Per Household
A IiP may operate or have an ownership interest, legal or equitable, as a sole proprietorship, partner, shareholder, trustee, or beneficiary, in only one i-AdMe business. No individual may have, operate or receive compensation from more than one i-AdMe business. Individuals of the same Household may have separate i-AdMe Businesses. However, member of the same Household must be in the same line of sponsorship. The first Household member who enrolls in i-AdMe must enroll all other Household members who join i-AdMe. In the alternative, the first Household member who joins i-AdMe may enroll the second Household member, who may in turn enroll the third Household member, and so on. A “Household” is defined as spouses, and dependent children living at or doing business at the same address.
An exception to the one business per IiP rule will be considered on a case by case basis in cases of a IiP receiving an interest in another business through inheritance. Requests for exceptions to policy must be submitted in writing to the IiP Services Department.
4.21 – Actions of Household IiPs or Affiliated Parties
If any member of a IiP’s immediate household engages in any activity which, if performed by the IiP, would violate any provision of the Agreement, such activity will be deemed a violation by the IiP and i-AdMe may take disciplinary action pursuant to the Statement of Policies against the IiP. Similarly, if any individual associated in any way with a corporation, partnership, LLC, trust or other entity (collectively “Business Entity”) violates the Agreement, such action(s) will be deemed a violation by the Business Entity, and i-AdMe may take disciplinary action against the Business Entity. Likewise, if a IiP enrolls in i-AdMe as a Business Entity, each Affiliated Party of the Business Entity shall be personally and individually bound to, and must comply with, the terms and conditions of the Agreement.
4.22 – Requests for Records
Any request from a IiP for copies of invoices, applications, team tracker activity reports, or other records will require a fee of $2.00 per page per copy. This fee covers the expense of mailing and time required to research files and make copies of the records.
4.23 – Roll-up of Marketing Organization
When a vacancy occurs in a Marketing Organization due to the termination of an i-AdMe business, there will be no “roll up.” Rather, the vacancy shall remain as an un-filled position within the Organization of the terminated IiP’s Sponsor.
4.24 – Sale, Transfer or Assignment of i-AdMe Business
Although an i-AdMe business is a privately owned and independently operated business, the sale, transfer or assignment of an i-AdMe business, and the sale, transfer, or assignment of an interest in a Business Entity that owns or operates an i-AdMe business, is subject to certain limitations. If a IiP wishes to sell his or her i-AdMe business, or interest in a Business Entity that owns or operates an i-AdMe business, the following criteria must be met:
• The selling IiP must offer i-AdMe the right of first refusal to purchase the business on the same terms as agreed upon with a third-party buyer. i-AdMe shall have fifteen days from the date of receipt of the written offer from the seller to exercise its right of first refusal.
• The buyer or transferee must become a qualified i-AdMe IiP. If the buyer is an active i-AdMe IiP, he or she must first terminate his or her i-AdMe business before acquiring any interest in a different i-AdMe business;
• Before the sale, transfer or assignment can be finalized and approved by i-AdMe, any debt obligations the selling party has with i-AdMe must be satisfied.
• The selling party must be in good standing and not in violation of any of the terms of the Agreement in order to be eligible to sell, transfer or assign an i-AdMe business.
Prior to selling an independent i-AdMe business or Business Entity interest, the selling IiP must notify i-AdMe’s Compliance Department in writing and advise of his or her intent to sell his/her i-AdMe business or Business Entity interest. The selling IiP must also receive written approval from the Compliance Department before proceeding with the sale. No changes in line of sponsorship can result from the sale or transfer of an i-AdMe business.
4.25 – Separation of an i-AdMe Business
i-AdMe IiPs sometimes operate their i-AdMe businesses as husband-wife partner-ships, regular partnerships, LLCs, corporations, trusts, or other Business Entities. At such time as a marriage may end in divorce or a corporation, LLC, partnership, trust or other Business Entity may dissolve, arrangements must be made to assure that any separation or division of the business is accomplished so as not to adversely affect the interests and income of other businesses up or down the line of sponsorship.
During the divorce or entity dissolution process, the parties must adopt one of the following methods of operation:
• One of the parties may, with consent of the other(s), operate the i-AdMe business pursuant to an assignment in writing whereby the relinquishing spouse, shareholders, partners or trustees authorize i-AdMe to deal directly and solely with the other spouse or non-relinquishing shareholder, partner or trustee.
• The parties may continue to operate the i-AdMe business jointly on a “business-as-usual” basis, whereupon all revenue share paid by i-AdMe will be paid according to the status quo as it existed prior to the divorce filing or dissolution proceedings. This is the default procedure if the parties do not agree on the format set forth above.
Under no circumstances will the IiP’s Organization of divorcing spouses or a dissolving business entity be divided. Similarly, under no circumstances will i-AdMe split revenue share and bonus checks between divorcing spouses or members of dissolving entities. i-AdMe will recognize only one IiP’s Organization and will issue only one revenue share check per i-AdMe business per payout cycle. Revenue share checks shall always be issued to the same individual or entity.
If a former spouse has completely relinquished all rights in the original i-AdMe business pursuant to a divorce, he or she is thereafter free to enroll under any sponsor of his or her choosing without waiting six calendar months. In the case of business entity dissolutions, the former partner, shareholder, member, or other entity affiliate who retains no interest in the business must wait six calendar months from the date of the final dissolution before re-enrolling as a IiP. In either case, the former spouse or business affiliate shall have no rights to any IiPs in their former organization or to any former customer. They must develop the new business in the same manner as would any other new IiP.
4.26 – Sponsoring Online
When sponsoring a new IiP through the online enrollment process, the sponsor may assist the new applicant in filling out the enrollment materials. However, the applicant must personally review and agree to the online application and agreement, i-AdMe’s Policies and Procedures, and the i-AdMe Revenue Share Plan. The sponsor may not fill out the online application and agreement on behalf of the applicant and agree to these materials on behalf of the applicant.
4.27 – Succession
Upon the death or incapacitation of a IiP, his or her business may be passed to his or her heirs. Appropriate legal documentation must be submitted to the Company to ensure the transfer is proper. Accordingly, a IiP should consult an attorney to assist him or her in the preparation of a will or other testamentary instrument. Whenever an i-AdMe business is transferred by a will or other testamentary process, the beneficiary acquires the right to collect all bonuses and crevenue share of the deceased IiP’s marketing organization provided the following qualifications are met. The successor(s) must:
• Execute a IiPs Agreement;
• Comply with terms and provisions of the Agreement;
• Meet all of the qualifications for the deceased IiP’s status;
• The devisee must provide i-AdMe with an “address of record” to which all bonus and revenue share checks will be sent;
• If the business is bequeathed to joint devisees, they must form a business entity and acquire a Federal Taxpayer Identification Number. i-AdMe will issue all bonus and revenue share checks and one 1099 to the business entity.
4.27.1 – Transfer Upon Death of a IiP
To effect a testamentary transfer of an i-AdMe business, the executor of the estate must provide the following to i-AdMe: (1) an original death certificate; (2) certified letters testamentary or a letter of administration appointing an executor; and (3) written instructions from the authorized executor to i-AdMe specifying to whom the business and income should be transferred.
4.27.2 – Transfer Upon Incapacitation of a IiP
To effectuate a transfer of an i-AdMe business because of incapacity, the successor must provide the following to i-AdMe: (1) a notarized copy of an appointment as trustee; (2) a notarized copy of the trust document or other documentation establishing the trustee’s right to administer the i-AdMe business; and (3) a completed IiPs Agreement executed by the trustee.
4.28 – Telemarketing Techniques
The Federal Trade Commission and the Federal Communications Commission each have laws that restrict telemarketing practices. Both federal agencies (as well as a number of states) have “do not call” regulations as part of their telemarketing laws. Although i-AdMe does not consider IiPs to be “telemarketers” in the traditional sense of the word, these government regulations broadly define the term “telemarketer” and “telemarketing” so that your inadvertent action of calling someone whose telephone number is listed on the federal “do not call” registry could cause you to violate the law. Moreover, these regulations must not be taken lightly, as they carry significant penalties.
Therefore, IiPs must not engage in telemarketing in the operation of their i-AdMe businesses. The term “telemarketing” means the placing of one or more telephone calls to an individual or entity to induce the purchase of an i-AdMe product or service, or to recruit them for the i-AdMe opportunity. “Cold calls” made to prospective customers or IiPs that promote either i-AdMe’s products or services or the i-AdMe opportunity constitute telemarketing and are prohibited. However, a telephone call(s) placed to a prospective customer or IiP (a “prospect”) is permissible under the following situations:
• If the IiP has an established business relationship with the prospect. An “established business relationship” is a relationship between a IiP and a prospect based on the prospect’s purchase, rental, or lease of goods or services from the IiP, or a financial transaction between the prospect and the IiP, within the eighteen (18) months immediately preceding the date of a telephone call to induce the prospect’s purchase of a product or service.
• The prospect’s personal inquiry or application regarding a product or service offered by the IiP, within the three (3) months immediately preceding the date of such a call.
• If the IiP receives written and signed permission from the prospect authorizing the IiP to call. The authorization must specify the telephone number(s) which the IiP is authorized to call.
• You may call family members, personal friends, and acquaintances. An “acquaintance” is someone with whom you have at least a recent first-hand relationship within the preceding three months. Bear in mind, however, that if you engage in “card collecting” with everyone you meet and subsequently calling them, the FTC may consider this a form of telemarketing that is not subject to this exemption. Thus, if you engage in calling “acquaintances,” you must make such calls on an occasional basis only and not make this a routine practice.
• IiPs shall not use automatic telephone dialing systems or software relative to the operation of their i-AdMe businesses.
• IiPs shall not place or initiate any outbound telephone call to any person that delivers any pre-recorded message (a “robocall”) regarding or relating to the i-AdMe products, services or opportunity.
4.29 – Virtual Office Access
i-AdMe makes online virtual offices available to its IiPs. Virtual offices provide IiPs access to confidential and proprietary information that may be used solely and exclusively to promote the development of a IiP’s i-AdMe business and to increase sales of i-AdMe products. However, access to a virtual office is a privilege, and not a right. i-AdMe reserves the right to deny IiPs’ access to the virtual office at its sole discretion.
SECTION 5 – RESPONSIBILITIES OF IiPS
5.1 – Change of Address, Telephone, and E-Mail Addresses
To ensure timely delivery of products, support materials, commission, and tax documents, it is important that the i-AdMe’s files are current. Street addresses are required for shipping since UPS cannot deliver to a post office box. IiPs planning to change their e-mail address or move must send their new address and telephone numbers to i-AdMe’s Corporate Offices to the attention of the IiP Services Department. To guarantee proper delivery, two weeks advance notice must be provided to i-AdMe on all changes.
5.2 – Continuing Development Obligations
5.2.1 – Ongoing Training
Any IiP who sponsors another IiP into i-AdMe must perform a bona fide assistance and training function to ensure that his or her team is properly operating his or her i-AdMe business. IiPs must have ongoing contact and communication with the IiPs in their Team Organizations. Examples of such contact and communication may include, but are not limited to: newsletters, written correspondence, personal meetings, telephone contact, voice mail, electronic mail, and the accompaniment of organization IiPs to i-AdMe meetings, training sessions, and other functions. Upline IiPs are also responsible to motivate and train new IiPs in i-AdMe product knowledge, effective sales techniques, the i-AdMe Revenue Share Plan, and compliance with Company Policies and Procedures. Communication with and the training of team IiPs must not, however, violate Sections 4.1 and/or 4.2 (regarding the development of IiP-produced sales aids and promotional materials).
IiPs should monitor the IiPs in their team Organizations to guard against organization IiPs making improper product or business claims, or engaging in any illegal or inappropriate conduct.
5.2.2 – Increased Training Responsibilities
As IiPs progress through the various levels of leadership, they will become more experienced in sales techniques, product knowledge, and understanding of the i-AdMe program. They will be called upon to share this knowledge with lesser experienced IiPs within their organization.
5.2.3 – Ongoing Sales Responsibilities
Regardless of their level of achievement, IiPs have an ongoing obligation to continue to personally promote sales through the generation of new customers and through servicing their existing customers.
5.3 – Nondisparagement
i-AdMe wants to provide its IiPs with the best products, revenue share plan, and service in the industry. Accordingly, we value your constructive criticisms and comments. All such comments should be submitted in writing to the IiP Services Department. Remember, to best serve you, we must hear from you! While i-AdMe welcomes constructive input, negative comments and remarks made in the field by IiPs about the Company, its products, or revenue share plan serve no purpose other than to sour the enthusiasm of other i-AdMe IiPs. For this reason, and to set the proper example for their team, IiPs must not disparage, demean, or make negative remarks about i-AdMe, other i-AdMe IiPs, i-AdMe’s products, the Marketing and Revenue Share plan, or i-AdMe’s directors, officers, or employees.
5.4 – Providing Documentation to Applicants
IiPs must provide the most current version of the Policies and Procedures and the Revenue Share Plan to individuals whom they are sponsoring to become IiPs before the applicant signs a IiP Agreement, or ensure that they have online access to these materials.
SECTION 6 – BONUSES AND REVENUE SHARE
6.1 – Bonus and Revenue Share Qualifications and Accrual
A IiP must be active and in compliance with the Agreement to qualify for bonuses and revenue share. So long as a IiP complies with the terms of the Agreement, i-AdMe shall pay revenue share to such IiP in accordance with the Marketing and Revenue Share plan. The minimum amount for which i-AdMe will issue a commission is $35.00. If a IiP’s bonuses and revenue share do not equal or exceed $35.00, the Company will accrue the revenue share and bonuses until they total $35.00. Payment will be issued once $35.00 has been accrued. Notwithstanding the foregoing, all commissions owed a IiP, regardless of the amount accrued, will be paid at the end of each fiscal year or upon the termination of a IiP’s business.

A IiP whose business is canceled shall receive revenue share and bonuses only for the last full pay period he or she was active prior to cancellation (less any amounts withheld during an investigation preceding an involuntary termination).

Cancellation shall be effective on the date on which written notice is mailed, emailed, faxed, or delivered to an express courier, to the IiP’s last known address, email address, or fax number, or to his/her attorney, or when the IiP receives actual notice of cancellation, whichever occurs first.
