Agreement (hereafter IMC). Throughout
these Policies, when the term Agreement is used, it collectively refers to
the AliveMax.com Independent Group of
Distributors Application and Agreement (hereafter AliveMax IMC Application
and Agreement), these Policies and Procedures, the AliveMax.com Marketing and Compensation Plan, and the AliveMax.com Business Entity Registration Form
(if applicable). These documents are
incorporated by reference into the AliveMax.com IMC Agreement (all in their current form and
as amended by AliveMax.com ). It is
the responsibility of each Independent Marketing Consultant (hereafter IMC)
to read, understand, adhere to, and ensure that he or she is aware of and
operating under the most current version of these Policies and Procedures. When enrolling a new IMC, it is the
responsibility of the Enroller to ensure that the applicant is provided with,
or has online access to, the most current version of these Policies and
Procedures and the AliveMax.com Marketing and Compensation Plan prior to his
or her execution of the IMC Agreement.
2.2 - Purpose of Policies
is a direct sales company that markets its products through Independent Representatives
(IMCs). It is important to understand
that your success and the success of your fellow IMCs depend on the integrity
of the men and women who market our products.
To clearly define the relationship that exists between IMCs and AliveMax.com and, to explicitly set a standard for acceptable business conduct, AliveMax.com has established the Agreement.
AliveMax.com IMCs are required to comply with all of the Terms and Conditions set forth in
the Agreement which AliveMax.com may amend at its sole discretion from time
to time, as well as all federal, state, and local and Country laws governing
their AliveMax.com business and their conduct. Because you may be unfamiliar with many of
these standards of practice, it is very important that you read and abide by
the Agreement. Please review the
information in this manual carefully. It
explains and governs the relationship between you, as an independent contractor
and the Company. If you have any
questions regarding any policy or rule, do not hesitate to seek an answer from AliveMax.com.

all IMCs that the Agreement has been modified.
Notification of amendments shall be published in official AliveMax.com materials. The Company shall provide or
make available to all IMCs a complete copy of the amended provisions by one or
more of the following methods: (1) posting on the Companys official web site;
(2) The IMC back office (3) electronic mail (e-mail); (4) inclusion in Company

found to be invalid, or unenforceable for any reason, only the invalid

such invalid, or unenforceable provision never comprised a part of the

the applicable laws governing the conduct of a business. No failure of AliveMax.com to exercise any
right or power under the Agreement or to insist upon strict compliance by an IMC
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 AliveMax.coms right to demand exact compliance with the
Agreement. Waiver by AliveMax.com can
be effectuated only in writing by an authorized officer of the Company. AliveMax.coms waiver of any particular
breach by an IMC shall not affect or impair AliveMax.coms rights with
respect to any subsequent breach, nor shall it affect in any way the rights or
obligations of any other IMC. Nor shall
any delay or omission by AliveMax.com to exercise any right arising from a
breach affect or impair AliveMax.coms rights as to that or any subsequent

SECTION 4 - OPERATING
AN ALIVEMAX.COM BUSINESS
4.1 - Adherence to the AliveMax.com Marketing and Compensation Plan
adhere to the terms of the AliveMax.com Marketing and Compensation Plan as
set forth in official AliveMax.com literature. IMCs shall not offer the AliveMax.com opportunity through, or in combination with,
any other system, program, or method of marketing other than that specifically
set forth in official AliveMax.com literature. IMCs shall not require or encourage other
current or prospective Service Subscribers or IMCs to participate in AliveMax.com in any manner that varies from the program as set forth in official AliveMax.com literature. IMCs shall not require
or encourage other current or prospective Customers or IMCs to execute any
agreement or contract other than official AliveMax.com agreements and
contracts in order to become an AliveMax.com Subscriber or IMC. Similarly, IMCs shall not require or
encourage other current or prospective Customers or IMCs to make any purchase
from, or payment to, any individual or other entity to subscribe to AliveMax.com.
Products or to participate in the AliveMax.com Marketing and Compensation
Plan other than those purchases or payments identified as recommended or
required in official AliveMax.com literature.
4.2 - Advertising
4.2.1 - General
shall safeguard and promote the good reputation of AliveMax.com and its services. The marketing and promotion of AliveMax.com,
the AliveMax.com opportunity, the Marketing and Compensation Plan, and AliveMax.com products shall be consistent with the public interest, and must avoid
all discourteous, deceptive, misleading, unethical or immoral conduct or
both the AliveMax.com products and the tremendous opportunity AliveMax.com offers,
IMCs must use the sales aids and support materials produced by AliveMax.com. The rationale behind this requirement is
simple. AliveMax.com has carefully
designed its Product offerings, Marketing and Compensation Plan, and
promotional materials to ensure that each aspect of AliveMax.com is fair,
truthful, substantiated, and complies with the vast and complex legal
requirements of federal, state and country laws. If AliveMax.com IMCs were allowed to
develop their own sales aids and promotional materials (which includes Internet
advertising), notwithstanding their integrity and good intentions, the
likelihood that they would unintentionally violate any number of statutes or
regulations affecting an AliveMax.com business is almost certain. These violations, although they may be
relatively few in number, would jeopardize the AliveMax.com opportunity for
IMCs must not produce their own
literature, advertisements, sales aids and promotional materials, or
Internet web pages.
AliveMax.com will not permit IMCs to create side-businesses selling sales aids to
other AliveMax.com IMCs.
IMC Web Sites
If an IMC
desires to utilize an internet web page to promote his or her business, he or
she may do so through the Companys replicated website program only. This program permits IMCs to advertise on
the Internet and to choose from among a variety of home page designs that can
be personalized with the IMC's message and the IMC's contact information. These websites seamlessly link directly to
the official AliveMax.com website giving the IMC a professional and
Company-approved presence on the Internet. No IMC may independently design a website
that uses AliveMax.coms names or logos, or descriptions of AliveMax.com products, or otherwise promotes (directly or
indirectly) AliveMax.com products or
the AliveMax.com opportunity. Nor may an IMC use "blind" ads on
the Internet that make AliveMax.com income claims or claims about the AliveMax.com
products that are ultimately associated with AliveMax.com products, the AliveMax.com opportunity, or
the AliveMax.com Marketing and Compensation Plan. The use of any other internet website or web
page (including without limitation auction sites such as eBay, Craigslist, etc.)
to in any way promote the sale of AliveMax.com products, the AliveMax.com opportunity,
or the Marketing and Compensation Plan is a breach of the Agreement and may
result in any of the disciplinary sanctions set forth in Section 9.1.
4.2.2 - Blogs, Chat Rooms, Social Networks, Online
Auctions, and other Online Forums
IMCs shall not
use online blogs, chat rooms, social networks, online auctions sites, or any
other online forum to market, sell, advertise, promote, or discuss AliveMax.coms
services or the AliveMax.com opportunity.
4.2.3 - Domain Names and
IMCs may not use
or attempt to register any of AliveMax.coms trade names, trademarks, service
names, service marks, product names, the Companys name, or any derivative
thereof, for any Internet domain name. Nor
may IMCs incorporate or attempt to incorporate any of the Companys trade
names, trademarks, service names, service marks, product names, the Companys
name, or any derivative thereof, into any electronic mail address.
4.2.4 - Trademarks and Copyrights
not allow the use of its trade names, trademarks, designs, or symbols by any
person, including IMCs, or Customers without its prior, written permission. IMCs

speeches without written permission from AliveMax.com nor may IMCs reproduce
for sale or for personal use any recording of Company-produced audio or video
4.2.5 - Media and Media Inquiries
not attempt to respond to media inquiries regarding AliveMax.com, its products,
services, or their independent AliveMax.com business. All inquiries by any type of media must be
immediately referred to AliveMax.coms Operations Department. This policy is designed to assure that
accurate and consistent information is provided to the public as well as a
proper public image.
4.2.6 - Unsolicited Email
does not permit IMCs to send unsolicited commercial emails unless such emails
strictly comply with applicable laws and regulations including, without
limitation, the federal CAN SPAM Act. Any email sent by an IMC that promotes AliveMax.com products , the AliveMax.com opportunity, or AliveMax.com services must
comply with the following:
There must be a functioning return email address to the
There must be a notice in the email that advises the
recipient that he or she may reply to the email, via the functioning return
email address, to request that future email solicitations or correspondence not
be sent to him or her (a functioning opt-out notice).
The email must include the IMCs physical mailing
The email must clearly and conspicuously disclose that
the message is an advertisement or solicitation.
The use of deceptive subject lines and/or false header
information is prohibited.
All opt-out requests, whether received by email or
regular mail, must be honored. If an IMC receives an opt-out request from a
recipient of an email, the IMC must forward the opt-out request to the Company.
The IMC must inform the recipient that the email is not
from AliveMax.com and reveal the name of the third party email provider.
AliveMax.com may periodically send commercial
emails on behalf of IMCs. By entering into the IMC Agreement, IMC agrees
that the Company may send such emails and that the IMCs physical and email
addresses will be included in such emails as outlined above. IMCs shall
honor opt-out requests generated as a result of such emails sent by the
4.2.7 - Unsolicited Faxes
Except as provided in this section, IMCs
may not use or transmit unsolicited faxes or use an automatic telephone dialing
system relative to the operation of their AliveMax.com businesses. The
term automatic telephone dialing system means equipment which has the capacity
to: (a) store or produce telephone numbers to be called, using a random or
sequential number generator; and (b) to dial such numbers. The terms
"unsolicited faxes" means the transmission via telephone facsimile or
electronic mail, respectively, of any material or information advertising or
promoting AliveMax.com , product, services, its compensation plan or any
other aspect of the company which is transmitted to any person, except that
these terms do not include a fax or e-mail: (a) to any person with that
person's prior express invitation or permission; or (b) to any person with whom
the IMC has an established business or personal relationship. The term
"established business or personal relationship" means a prior or
existing relationship formed by a voluntary two way communication between an IMC
and a person, on the basis of: (a) an inquiry, application, purchase or
transaction by the person regarding products or services offered by such IMC;
or (b) a personal or familial relationship, which relationship has not been
previously terminated by either party.
4.3 - Bonus Buying Prohibited
is strictly and absolutely
prohibited. Bonus Buying includes: (a) the enrollment of individuals or
entities without the knowledge of and/or execution of an Independent IMC
Application and Agreement by such individuals or entities; (b) the fraudulent

enrollment or attempted enrollment of non-existent individuals or entities as IMCs
or Subscribers (phantoms); (d) Purchasing AliveMax.com products or services on behalf of another IMC
or Subscriber, or under another IMCs or Subscribers I.D. number, to qualify
for commissions or bonuses; (e) the
submission of an unauthorized
request for products or service to an individuals or entitys credit card (or
bank account) and/or (f) any other mechanism or artifice to qualify for rank
advancement, incentives, prizes, commissions or bonuses that is not driven by
bona fide service subscriptions by end user consumers.
4.4 - Business Entities
limited liability company (LLC), partnership or trust (collectively referred to
in this section as a (Business Entity)
may apply to be an AliveMax.com IMC by
submitting its Certificate of incorporation, Certificate of Organization, Partnership
Agreement or trust documents (these documents are collectively referred to as
the Entity Documents) to AliveMax.com , along with a properly completed
Business Entity Registration Form. If an
IMC enrolls online, the Entity Documents and Business Entity Registration Form
must be submitted to AliveMax.com within 30 days of the online enrollment. (If
not received within the 30-day period, the IMC Agreement shall automatically
terminate.) The Business Entity
Registration Form must be signed by all of the shareholders, partners or
trustees. Members of the entity are jointly
and severally liable for any indebtedness or other obligation to AliveMax.com.
transfers and assignments of AliveMax.com Business.
If an additional partner, shareholder,
member, or other business entity affiliate is added to a business entity, the
original applicant must remain as a party to the original IMC Application and
Agreement. If the original IMC wants to
terminate his or her relationship with the Company, he or she must transfer or
assign his or her business. If this process is not followed, the business shall
be canceled upon the withdrawal of the original IMC. All bonus and commission checks will be sent
to the address of record of the original IMC.
Please note that 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 IMC Application and Agreement. AliveMax.com may, at its discretion,
require notarized documents before implementing any changes to an AliveMax.com
business. Please allow thirty (30) days
after the receipt of the request by AliveMax.com for processing.
to a Business Entity
business may change its status under the same Placement Sponsor from an
individual to a partnership, LLC, corporation or trust, or from one type of
entity to another. There is a $25.00 fee
for each change requested, which must be included with the written request and
the completed IMC Application and Agreement.
Such changes shall be processed only once per year and must be submitted
by November 30 to become effective on January 1 of the following year. In addition, IMCs operating their AliveMax.com
business utilizing a business entity must notify AliveMax.com of the addition
or removal of any officers, directors, shareholders, managers, members or
business associates of the business entity.
4.5 - Change of Placement Sponsor
To protect the integrity of all marketing
organizations and safeguard the hard work of all IMCs, AliveMax.com strongly
discourages changes in sponsorship.
Maintaining the integrity of sponsorship is critical for the success of
every IMC and marketing organization. Accordingly, the transfer of an AliveMax.com business from one Placement Sponsor to another is rarely permitted and
must be approved in writing by AliveMax.com. Such approval may be granted or
denied at AliveMax.coms sole and absolute discretion.
Requests for change of sponsorship must be
submitted in writing to the IMC Services Department, and must include the
reason for the transfer. Transfers will
only be considered in the following three circumstances:
4.5.1 - Misplacement
In cases in
which the new IMC is placed under a
Placement Sponsor other than the individual he or she was led to believe would
be his or her Placement Sponsor, an IMC 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 must be made within 60 days from the date of
enrollment and the IMC requesting the change has the burden of proving that he
or she was placed beneath the wrong Placement Sponsor. All requests for transfer alleging
misplacement shall be evaluated on a case by case basis.
4.5.2 - Upline Approval
seeking to transfer submits a properly completed and fully executed Letter of Sponsorship
Transfer Request which includes the written approval of his or her immediate up-
line IMCs and all parties whose
income will be affected by the transfer. Photocopied or facsimile signatures are not
acceptable. All IMC signatures must be
notarized. The IMC who requests the
transfer must submit a fee of $50.00 for administrative charges and data
processing. If the transferring IMC also
wants to move any of the IMCs in his or her marketing organization, each down-line
IMC must also obtain a properly completed Letter of Sponsorship Transfer Request and
return it to AliveMax.com with the $50.00 change fee (i.e., the transferring IMC
and each IMC in his or her marketing organization multiplied by $50.00 is the
cost to move an AliveMax.com business.)
Down-line IMCs will not be moved with the transferring IMC unless all
of the requirements of this paragraph are met.
Transferring IMCs must allow thirty (30) days after the receipt of the Letter
of Sponsorship Transfer Request by AliveMax.com for processing and verifying change requests.
In cases where
in the appropriate sponsorship change procedures have not been followed, and a down-line
organization has been developed by an IMC, AliveMax.com reserves the sole and
exclusive right to determine the final disposition of the down-line
organization. Resolving conflicts over
the proper placement of a down-line that has developed under an organization
that has improperly switched Placement Sponsors is often extremely
difficult. Therefore, IMCS WAIVE ANY AND ALL CLAIMS AGAINST ALIVEMAX.COM THAT RELATE TO OR ARISE FROM ALIVEMAX.COM S DECISION REGARDING THE DISPOSITION OF ANY DOWNLINE ORGANIZATION THAT
DEVELOPS BELOW AN ORGANIZATION THAT HAS IMPROPERLY CHANGED LINES OF
4.5.3- Cancellation and
An IMC may
legitimately change organizations by voluntarily canceling his or her AliveMax.com business and remaining inactive (i.e.,
no sales of AliveMax.com products, no enrolling or sponsoring of IMCs, no
customers, no attendance at any AliveMax.com functions, participation in any other form of IMC activity, or operation
of any other AliveMax.com business)
for six (6) full calendar months.
Following the six month period of inactivity, the former IMC may reapply under a new Enroller and/or
4.6 - Unauthorized Claims and Actions Indemnification
An IMC is
fully responsible for all of his or her verbal and written statements made
regarding AliveMax.com products, services and the Marketing and Compensation
Plan which are not expressly contained in official AliveMax.com materials. IMCs agree to indemnify AliveMax.com and AliveMax.coms directors, officers,
employees, and agents, and hold them harmless from any and all liability including
judgments, civil penalties, refunds, attorney fees, court costs, or lost
business incurred by AliveMax.com as a result of the IMCs unauthorized
representations or actions. This
provision shall survive the termination of the IMC Agreement.
(which include personal testimonials) regarding the results, features or benefits
of AliveMax.coms products or services may be made except those that are
consistent with the claims contained in official AliveMax.com literature. Not only do such claims violate AliveMax.com policies, but they potentially
violate federal and state, country laws and regulations, including in the
U.S.A. the Federal Trade Commission Act.
enthusiasm to enroll prospective IMCs, some IMCs are occasionally tempted to
make income claims or earnings representations to demonstrate the inherent
power of network marketing. This is
counterproductive because new IMCs may become disappointed very quickly if
their results are not as extensive or as rapid as the results others have
achieved. At AliveMax.com we firmly
believe that the AliveMax.com income potential is great enough to be highly
attractive, without reporting the earnings of others.
Federal Trade Commission, several states and many countrys have laws or
regulations that regulate or even prohibit certain types of income claims and
testimonials made by persons engaged in network marketing. While IMCs may believe it beneficial to
provide copies of checks, or to disclose the earnings of themselves or others,
such approaches have legal consequences that can negatively impact AliveMax.com
, as well as the IMC making the claim unless appropriate disclosures required
by law are also made contemporaneously with the
income claim or earnings
representation. Because AliveMax.com
IMCs do not have the data necessary to comply with the legal requirements for
making income claims, an IMC, when presenting or discussing the AliveMax.com opportunity
or Marketing and Compensation Plan to a prospective IMC, may not make income
projections, income claims, or disclose his or her AliveMax.com income (including
the showing of checks, copies of checks, bank statements, or tax records).
4.7 - Commercial Outlets
IMCs may not
sell AliveMax.com products from a commercial outlet, nor may IMCs display or
sell AliveMax.com products, services or literature in any retail or service
4.8 - Trade Shows, Expositions and Other Sales Forums
IMCs may display and/or sell AliveMax.com
products or services at trade shows and professional expositions. Before submitting a deposit to the event
promoter, IMCs must contact the IMC Services Department in writing for
conditional approval, as AliveMax.coms policy is to authorize only one AliveMax.com business per event. Final approval
will be granted to the first IMC who submits an official advertisement of the
event, a copy of the contract signed by both the IMC 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 IMC Services Department. AliveMax.com 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 or services or the AliveMax.com
opportunity. Approval will not be given
for swap meets, garage sales, flea markets or farmers markets as these events
are not conducive to the professional image AliveMax.com wishes to portray.
4.9 - Conflicts of Interest Non-solicitation
IMCs are free to participate in other multilevel or network marketing business
ventures or marketing opportunities (collectively network marketing). However, during the term of this Agreement, IMCs
may not Recruit other AliveMax.com IMCs
or Customers for
any other network marketing business. Following
the cancellation of this Agreement, and for a period of six months thereafter, with
the exception of an IMC who is (a) personally enrolled by the former IMC; and
(b) who is on the former IMCs first downline level (frontline) [criteria (a)
and (b) must both be met], a former IMC may not Recruit any AliveMax.com IMC
or Customer for another network marketing business. IMCs and the Company recognize that because
network marketing is conducted through networks of independent contractors
dispersed across the entire United
States and internationally, and business is
commonly conducted via the internet and telephone, an effort to narrowly limit
the geographic scope of this non-solicitation provision would render it wholly
ineffective. Therefore, IMCs and AliveMax.com agree that this non-solicitation provision shall apply to all markets in
which AliveMax.com conducts business.
IMCs must not sell, or attempt to sell,
any competing non-AliveMax.com programs, products or services to AliveMax.com
Customers or IMCs. Any program or
service in the same generic category as AliveMax.com services is deemed to be
competing, regardless of differences in cost, functionality or features.
IMCs may not display AliveMax.com services
or promotional material with any other promotional material, products or
services in a fashion that might in any way confuse or mislead a prospective Customer
or IMC into believing there is a relationship between the AliveMax.com and the non-AliveMax.com products or
services. IMCs may not offer the AliveMax.com opportunity or services to
prospective or existing Subscribers or IMCs in conjunction with any non-AliveMax.com program, opportunity, product or service.
IMCs may not offer any non-AliveMax.com opportunity, products or
services at any AliveMax.com -related meeting, seminar or convention, or
immediately following such event.
4.9.1 - Downline
Activity (Genealogy) Reports
Downline Activity Reports are available
for IMC access and viewing at AliveMax.coms official web site. IMC access to their Downline Activity Reports
is password protected. All Downline Activity Reports and the
information contained therein are confidential and constitute proprietary
information and business trade secrets belonging to AliveMax.com. Downline Activity Reports are provided to IMCs
in strictest confidence and are made available to IMCs for the sole purpose of
assisting IMCs in working with their respective Downline Organizations in the
development of their AliveMax.com business.
IMCs should use their Downline Activity Reports to assist, motivate,
and train their downline IMCs. The IMC and AliveMax.com agree that, but for
this agreement of confidentiality and nondisclosure, AliveMax.com would not provide Downline Activity Reports to
the IMC. An IMC 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 information contained in any Downline Activity Report to any third
indirectly disclose the password or
other access code to his or her Downline Activity Report;
Use the information contained in any Downline Activity
Report to compete with AliveMax.com or
for any purpose other than promoting or supporting his or her AliveMax.com business; or
Recruit or solicit any IMC or Subscriber listed on any Downline
Activity Report, or in any manner attempt to influence or induce any IMC or Subscriber
, to alter their business relationship with AliveMax.com.
Upon demand by the
Company, any current or former IMC will return the original and all copies of
Downline Activity Reports to the Company.
4.10 - Targeting Other Direct Sellers
AliveMax.com neither condones IMCs
specifically or consciously targeting the sales force of another direct sales
company to sell AliveMax.com products or to become IMCs or Customers for AliveMax.com ,nor does AliveMax.com condone IMCs solicitation or enticement of
members of the sales force of another direct sales company to violate the terms
of their contract with such other company.
Should IMCs engage in such activity, they bear the risk of being sued
by the other direct sales company. If
any lawsuit, arbitration or mediation is brought against an IMC alleging that
he or she engaged in inappropriate recruiting activity of its sales force or customers,
AliveMax.com will not pay any of IMCs defense costs or legal fees. AliveMax.com will not indemnify the IMC for any judgment, award, or settlement.
4.11 - Cross-Enrolling
or attempted cross sponsoring is strictly
prohibited. Cross Enrolling is defined
as the enrollment of an individual who or entity that already has a current AliveMax.com IMC or Customer Agreement on file with AliveMax.com , or who has had
such an agreement within the preceding six calendar months, within a different
line of sponsorship. The use of a
spouses or relatives name, trade names, DBA's, assumed names, corporations,
partnerships, trusts, federal ID numbers, or fictitious ID numbers to
circumvent this policy is prohibited. IMCs
shall not demean, discredit or defame other AliveMax.com IMCs in an attempt to entice another IMC to
become part of the first IMCs marketing organization.
If Cross Enrolling
is discovered, it must be brought to the Companys attention immediately. AliveMax.com may take disciplinary action
against the IMC that changed organizations and/or those IMCs who encouraged or
participated in the Cross Enrolling. AliveMax.com may also move all or part of the offending IMCs downline to his or her
original downline organization if the Company deems it equitable and feasible
to do so. However, AliveMax.com is
under no obligation to move the Cross Enrolled IMCs downline organization, and
the ultimate disposition of the organization remains within the sole discretion
of AliveMax.com . IMCs waive all claims and causes of action against AliveMax.com arising from or relating to the disposition of
the Cross Enrolled IMCs downline organization.
4.12 - Errors or Questions

4.17 - Independent Contractor Status
independent contractors, and are not purchasers of a franchise or a business
opportunity. The agreement between AliveMax.com and its IMCs does not create
an employer/employee relationship, agency, partnership, or joint venture
between the Company and the IMC. IMCs shall not be treated as an employee for
his or her services or for Federal or State Country tax purposes. All IMCs are responsible for paying local,
state, federal and country taxes due from all compensation earned as an IMC of
the Company. The IMC has no authority
(expressed or implied), to bind the Company to any obligation. Each IMC shall establish his or her own
goals, hours, and methods of sale, so long as he or she complies with the terms
of the IMC Agreement, these Policies and Procedures, and applicable laws.

caller to believe that he or she has reached corporate offices of AliveMax.com.
4.18 - Insurance
You may wish to arrange insurance coverage
for your business. Your homeowners
insurance policy probably 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 owners policy.
4.19 - International Marketing
Because of critical technological, legal,
and tax considerations, AliveMax.com must limit the sale of AliveMax.com
products, services and the presentation of the AliveMax.com business to
prospective Customers and IMCs located within the United States ,U.S.
Territories and those other countries that
the Company has announced are officially opened for business. Moreover, allowing a few IMCs to conduct
business in markets not yet opened by AliveMax.com would violate the concept
of affording every IMC the equal opportunity to expand internationally.
Accordingly, IMCs are authorized to sell AliveMax.com products and services and enroll other IMCs only in the countries in
which AliveMax.com is authorized to conduct business, as announced in official
Company literature. IMCs may sell,
give, transfer, or distribute AliveMax.com sales aids only in their home country. In addition, no IMC may, in any unauthorized
country: (a) conduct sales, enrollment or training meetings; (b) enroll or
attempt to enroll potential Customers or IMCs; or (c) conduct any other
activity for the purpose of selling AliveMax.com products, establishing a
marketing organization, or promoting the AliveMax.com opportunity.
4.20 - Adherence to Laws and Ordinances
IMCs shall comply with all federal,
state, local and international laws and regulations in the conduct of their
businesses. Many cities, counties and
countrys have laws regulating certain home-based businesses. In most cases these ordinances are not
applicable to IMCs because of the nature of their business. However, IMCs must obey those laws that do
apply to them. If a city, county or
country official tells an IMC that an ordinance applies to him or her, the IMC
shall be polite and cooperative, and immediately send a copy of the ordinance
to the Compliance Department of AliveMax.com. In most cases there are
exceptions to the ordinance that may apply to AliveMax.com Customers or IMCs.
4.21 - Minors
A person who is recognized as a minor in
his/her state or country of residence may not be an AliveMax.com IMC. IMCs
shall not enroll or recruit minors into the AliveMax.com program.
4.22 - One AliveMax.com Business Per IMC and Per Household
An IMC may operate or have an ownership
interest, legal or equitable, as a sole proprietorship, partner, shareholder,
trustee, or beneficiary, in only one AliveMax.com business. No individual may have, operate or receive
compensation from more than one AliveMax.com business. Individuals of the same family unit may not
enter into or have an interest in more than one AliveMax.com business. A family unit is defined as spouses and
dependent children living at or doing business at the same address.
In order to maintain the integrity of the AliveMax.com Marketing and Compensation Plan, husbands and wives or common-law couples
(collectively spouses) who wish to become AliveMax.com IMCs must be jointly enrolled as one AliveMax.com business. Spouses, regardless of whether one or both
are signatories to the IMC Application and Agreement, may not own or operate
any other AliveMax.com business, either individually or jointly, nor may they participate directly or indirectly
(as a shareholder, partner, trustee, trust beneficiary, or any other legal or
equitable ownership) in the ownership or management of another AliveMax.com business in any form.
An exception to the one business per IMC
rule will be considered on a case by case basis if two IMCs marry or in cases
of an IMC receiving an interest in another business through inheritance or
Requests for exceptions to policy must be submitted in writing.
4.23 - Actions of Household Members or Affiliated
If any member of an IMCs immediate
household engages in any activity which, if performed by the IMC, would violate
any provision of the Agreement, such activity will be deemed a violation by the
IMC and AliveMax.com may take disciplinary action pursuant to the Statement of
Policies against the IMC. Similarly, if
any individual associated in any way with a corporation, partnership, trust or
other entity (collectively affiliated individual) violates the Agreement, such
action(s) will be deemed a violation by the entity, and AliveMax.com may take
disciplinary action against the entity.
4.24 - Requests for Records
Any request from an IMC for copies of
invoices, applications, downline activity reports, or other records will
require a fee of $1.00 per page per copy.
This fee covers the expense of mailing and time required to research
files and make copies of the records.
4.25 - Roll-up of Marketing Organization
When a vacancy occurs in a
Marketing Organization due to the termination of an AliveMax.com business,
each IMC in the first level immediately below the terminated IMC on the date of
the cancellation will be moved to the first level (front line) of the
terminated IMCs Placement Sponsor. For
example, if A is the Placement Sponsor of B, and B is the Placement Sponsor of
C1, C2, and C3, if B terminates her business, C1, C2, and C3 will roll-up to
A and become part of As first level.
4.26 - Sale, Transfer or Assignment of AliveMax.com Business
Although an AliveMax.com business is a
privately owned, independently
operated business, the sale, transfer or assignment of an AliveMax.com business
is subject to certain limitations.
If an IMC wishes
to sell his or her AliveMax.com business, the following criteria must be met:
Protection of the existing line of sponsorship must
always be maintained so that the AliveMax.com business continues to be
operated in that line of sponsorship.
The buyer or transferee must become a qualified AliveMax.com IMC. If the buyer is an active AliveMax.com IMC,
he or she must first terminate his or her AliveMax.com business and wait six calendar months before
acquiring any interest in the new AliveMax.com business.
Before the sale, transfer or assignment can be
finalized and approved by AliveMax.com , any debt obligations the selling IMC
has with AliveMax.com must be
The selling IMC 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 AliveMax.com business.
selling an AliveMax.com business, the selling IMC must submit a letter of
request to AliveMax.com for permission to sell the AliveMax.com business.
Upon a complete
execution of the purchase and sale agreement, the parties must submit copies of
the same to the AliveMax.com for review.
AliveMax.com reserves the right to request additional documentation
that may be necessary to analyze the transaction between the buyer and
seller. AliveMax.com will, in its sole
and absolute discretion, approve or deny the sale, transfer or assignment
within 30 days after its receipt of all necessary documents from the parties.
If the parties
fail to obtain AliveMax.coms approval for the transaction, the transfer
shall be voidable at AliveMax.coms option. The purchaser of the existing AliveMax.com business will assume the
obligations and position of the selling IMC. An IMC who sells his or her AliveMax.com business shall not be eligible to
re-apply as an AliveMax.com IMC for a period of at least six full calendar
months after the date of the sale.
No changes in
line of sponsorship can result from the sale or transfer of an AliveMax.com business.
4.27 - Separation of an AliveMax.com Business
IMCs sometimes operate their AliveMax.com businesses as husband-wife
partnerships, regular partnerships, corporations, or trusts. At such time as a marriage may end in divorce
or a corporation, partnership or trust (the latter three entities are
collectively referred to herein as entities) 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.
If the separating parties fail to provide for the best interests of
other IMCs and the Company in a timely fashion, AliveMax.com will
involuntarily terminate the IMC Agreement and roll-up their entire organization.
During the divorce or entity dissolution
process, the parties must adopt one of the following methods of operation:
a) One of the parties may, with
consent of the other(s), operate the AliveMax.com business pursuant to an assignment in writing
whereby the relinquishing spouse, shareholders, partners or trustees authorize AliveMax.com to deal directly and solely
with the other spouse or non-relinquishing shareholder, partner or trustee.
parties may continue to operate the AliveMax.com business jointly on a business-as-usual basis, whereupon all
compensation paid by AliveMax.com 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 to the format set forth above.
Under no circumstances will the Downline
Organization of divorcing spouses or a dissolving business entity be
divided. Similarly, under no
circumstances will AliveMax.com split commission and bonus checks, contest
winnings, or awards between divorcing spouses or members of dissolving
entities. AliveMax.com will recognize
only one Downline Organization and will issue only one commission check per AliveMax.com business per commission cycle.
Commission checks shall always be issued to the same individual or
entity. In the event that parties to a
divorce or dissolution proceeding are unable to resolve a dispute over the
disposition of commissions and ownership of the business in a timely fashion as
determined by the Company, the IMC Agreement shall be involuntarily canceled.
If a former spouse has completely
relinquished all rights in the original AliveMax.com business pursuant to a divorce, he or she is
thereafter free to enroll under any Enroller and Placement 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 an IMC. In either
case, however, the former spouse or business affiliate shall have no rights to
any IMCs in their former organization or to any former Subscriber. They must develop the new business in the
same manner as would any other new IMC.
4.28 - Enrolling
All active IMCs in good standing have the
right to enroll others into AliveMax.com. Each prospective Customer or IMC
has the ultimate right to choose his or her own Enroller and or Placement
Sponsor. If two IMCs claim to be the Enroller
or Placement Sponsor of the same new IMC or Customer, the Company shall regard
the first application received by the Company as controlling.
4.29 - Succession
Upon the death
or incapacitation of an IMC, 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, an IMC should consult an
attorney to assist him or her in the preparation of a will or other
testamentary instrument. Whenever an AliveMax.com business is transferred by a will or other testamentary process, the
beneficiary acquires the right to collect all bonuses and commissions of the
deceased IMCs marketing organization provided the following qualifications are
met. The successor(s) must:
a) Complete and execute an IMC
b) Comply with terms and
provisions of the Agreement; and
c) Meet all of the qualifications
for the deceased IMCs status.
commission checks of an AliveMax.com business transferred pursuant to this
section will be paid in a single check jointly
to the devisees. The devisees must
provide AliveMax.com with an address
of record to which all bonus and commission 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. AliveMax.com will issue all bonus and commission checks and
one 1099 to the business entity.
4.30 - Transfer Upon Death of an IMC
To effect a
testamentary transfer of an AliveMax.com business, the successor must provide the

(3) a completed and executed IMC Agreement.
4.31 - Transfer Upon Incapacitation of an IMC

administer the AliveMax.com business; and (3) a completed IMC Agreement
executed by the trustee.
4.32 - 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 AliveMax.com
does not consider IMCs 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 (up to $11,000.00 per violation).
Therefore, IMCs must not engage in
telemarketing in the operation of their AliveMax.com businesses. The term telemarketing
means the placing of one or more telephone calls to an individual or entity to
induce the purchase of an AliveMax.com service, or to recruit them for the AliveMax.com
opportunity. Cold calls"
made to prospective Subscribers or IMCs that promote either AliveMax.coms
services or the AliveMax.com opportunity
constitutes telemarketing and is prohibited. However, a telephone call(s)
placed to a prospective Subscriber or IMC (a "prospect") is
permissible under the following situations:
a) If the IMC has an established
business relationship with the prospect. An established business
relationship is a relationship between an IMC and a prospect based on the
prospects purchase, rental, or lease of goods or services from the IMC, or a
financial transaction between the prospect and the IMC, within the eighteen
(18) months immediately preceding the date of a telephone call to induce the
prospect's purchase of a product or service.
b) The prospects personal inquiry
or application regarding a product or service offered by the IMC, within the
three (3) months immediately preceding the date of such a call.
c) If the IMC receives written and
signed permission from the prospect authorizing the IMC to call. The authorization must specify the telephone
number(s) which the IMC is authorized to call.
d) 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 make a habit of 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.
e) In addition, IMCs shall not
use automatic telephone dialing systems relative to the operation of their AliveMax.com business. The term automatic telephone dialing system means equipment
which has the capacity to: (a) store or produce telephone numbers to be called,
using a random or sequential number generator; and (b) to dial such numbers.

those activities that directly
affect their incomes, namely product sales and enrollment activities. To these ends, AliveMax.com relieves IMCs
of the burdens of collecting and remitting sales taxes, filing sales tax
reports, and keeping records relative to sales taxes.

and remit the taxes charged to the respective states. and/or countries. Accordingly, AliveMax.com
will collect and remit sales taxes on
behalf of IMCs, based on the suggested retail price of the services, according
to applicable tax rates in the state or province to which the shipment is
destined. If an IMC has submitted and AliveMax.com has accepted, a current Sales Tax
Exemption Certificate and Sales Tax Registration License, sales taxes will not
be added to the invoice and the responsibility of collecting and remitting
sales taxes to the appropriate authorities shall be on the IMC. Exemption from the payment of sales tax is
applicable only to orders which are shipped to a state or country for which the
