(1) Those active Brand Ambassadors who obtain new Brand Ambassadors for the sale of KANNAWAY products shall assign the new Brand Ambassadors to its structure in accordance with the provisions of the Compensation Plan and the placement preferences given therein (sales partner protection), whereby the date and time of receipt of the registration application from the new Brand Ambassadors is deemed to be decisive in terms of the allocation. The possibility of changing the "set position" of a directly or indirectly sponsored partner is not possible. Likewise a retrospective change of sponsor is not possible. If, however, KANNAWAY has erroneously deployed an incorrect sponsor during registration, an application for a change of sponsor in this case is only possible within 45 days after registration.

(2) KANNAWAY is entitled to delete from its system all personal data, including the email address of sponsored Brand Ambassadors, if advertising, correspondence or emails are returned with the note "address unknown", "deceased", "rejected", "unknown", etc. and the newly recruited Brand Ambassadors or the sponsor does not correct the incorrect data of the newly recruited Brand Ambassadors within a reasonable period of 14 days. Insofar as KANNAWAY incurs costs due to undeliverable advertising materials and parcels sent, it is entitled to recover such costs, except if the mistaken delivery occurred through no fault.

(3) Furthermore, crossline sponsoring and attempts to perform this within the corporation is prohibited. Crossline sponsoring means the acquisition of a natural or legal person or a non-incorporated firm that is already a Brand Ambassador at KANNAWAY in another sales line, or who has had a sales partner contract within the last 6 months. Also prohibited to this extent is the use of the name of a spouse, relative, trading name, stock corporation, non-incorporated firm, trust corporation or other third party, in order to circumvent this provision.

(4) Bonus manipulations are prohibited. These include in particular the sponsoring of Brand Ambassadors, who do not in fact exercise KANNAWAY business (so-called "straw men") or persons that do not exist, as well as overt or disguised multiple registrations, insofar as this is prohibited. Also prohibited to this extent is the use of the name of a spouse, relative, trading name, stock corporation, non-incorporated firm, trust corporation or other third party, in order to circumvent this provision. It is also forbidden to provoke third parties into the disposal or purchase of Goods in order to achieve a better position in terms of the Compensation Plan, to manipulate the group bonus or to otherwise undertake bonus manipulation.

(5) Likewise, the use of credit cards to purchase Goods or other services is prohibited, where they are not in the name of a Brand Ambassador.

(6) The Brand Ambassadors are not entitled to territorial protection.

§ 11 Written Warnings, Contractual Penalties, Compensation, Indemnification from Liability

(1) In the case of a first breach by the Brand Ambassador of the duties governed by Section 7 a written warning will be sent by KANNAWAY, setting a deadline of 10 days to remedy the breach of duty. The Brand Ambassadors also undertake to repay the costs of the written warning, in particular the legal costs incurred for the written warning.

(2) Reference is made explicitly to Section 16(2), according to which KANNAWAY – upon a breach of the in duties stated in Sections 8, 9 and 10(3) and (4), 18(3) and 19, as well as in the event of a serious breach of the duties governed by Section 7, or of another applicable contractual or lawful right – is entitled to extraordinarily terminate the contract without prior written warning, though it is also entitled (at its discretion) to take the measures according to Section 11(1) upon the first breach of duty. Irrespective of the immediate right to extraordinary termination governed by Section 16(2), KANNAWAY has the right in individual cases, upon the occurrence of one of the aforementioned breaches of duty and at its own discretion, to issue a written warning within the meaning of Paragraph (1) before pronouncing extraordinary termination, whereby a shorter rectification period is allowed.

(3) If, after the end of the rectification period imposed by the written warning, the same breach or one which is substantially the same re-occurs, or if the original breach is not rectified, then a contractual penalty becomes immediately payable, the amount of which is set at the discretion of KANNAWAY and is to be verified in the event of a dispute by the competent court. For the assertion of the contractual penalty, further legal costs will be incurred, which the Brand Ambassadors are obliged to repay.

(4) The Brand Ambassadors are in addition liable, irrespective of the forfeited contractual penalty, for all damages incurred by KANNAWAY due to a breach of duty the Brand Ambassadors, except where the Brand Ambassadors are not responsible for the breach of duty.

(5) The Brand Ambassadors shall indemnify KANNAWAY in the event of a claim by a third party as a result of a breach of any contractually regulated obligation or of any other infringement by the Brand Ambassador against current law, upon KANNAWAY's first request. In particular, the Brand Ambassadors undertake to assume to this extent all costs, in particular lawyers, court costs and damages which KANNAWAY incurs in this context.

§ 12 Adjustment of Prices and Commission

KANNAWAY reserves the right, in particular with regard to changes in the market situation and/or licensing structure, to amend (at the beginning of a new accounting period) the prices to be paid to the Brand Ambassadors and/or to the commission rates attributed to the services, the Compensation Plan or the usage fees. KANNAWAY shall inform the Brand Ambassador of the amendment within a reasonable period of time in advance. Increases in the price of more than 5% or changes to the Compensation Plan to the detriment of the Brand Ambassadors entitles the Brand Ambassadors to object to the amendment. If they do not object to the amended conditions within a period of one month after notification, such conditions shall become an integral part of the contract. Amendments known of at the time of the conclusion of the sales partner contract are not subject to notification and do not establish a right of objection of the Brand Ambassador. In the event of an objection, KANNAWAY is entitled to terminate the contract extraordinarily, whereby the amended or additional terms and conditions of business shall come into effect.

§ 13 Advertising Materials, Contributions

All free advertising materials and other contributions of KANNAWAY may be withdrawn at any time with effect for the future.

§ 14 Compensation, Commission and Billing

 

(1) The Brand Ambassadors shall receive, upon reaching the relevant requirements and the maintenance of an active status – by way of compensation for successful brokerage and for its work – commission and other bonus payments including the relevant requirements and active status, according to KANNAWAY's currently valid Compensation Plan. Upon payment of the compensation and bonus payments, all costs of the Brand Ambassadors are covered for the maintenance and implementation of their business, insofar as such costs are not contractually agreed elsewhere separately.

(2) Successful brokerage within the meaning of (1) of this contract only exists if the contractual relationship between the customer and KANNAWAY takes effect and the customer does not withdraw its application for conclusion of a contract, in particular in accordance with the rules on distance or door-to-door selling. A compensation claim arises only if the payment by the customer into KANNAWAY's account is credited and all other payment conditions are met.

(3) A commission entitlement in particular does not arise if

a.) the customer makes use of its right of withdrawal 
b.) the contract is contested by the customer in a legally effective manner,
c) The customer order has been established unlawfully,
d.) KANNAWAY rejects acceptance of the contract,
e.) faulty, incomplete customer orders are submitted.

Furthermore, in cases of fraudulent brokerage, either by fraudulent or abusive actions of the customer, Brand Ambassadors are not entitled to a   commission fee.

(4) The Brand Ambassadors are initially entered as small traders at KANNAWAY, unless they state that they have an appropriate sales tax identification number, so that they can then be entered as a normal trader. They must inform KANNAWAY immediately, giving their sales tax identification number and confirmation from the competent tax office, as soon as they opt to pay sales tax (VAT) within the scope of its commercial activities, or if they exceed the thresholds for small businesses. As soon as the monthly commission to which the Brand Ambassadors is entitled exceeds €1,400.00, the Brand Ambassadors no longer count as small traders, such that KANNAWAY will then require the Brand Ambassadors to submit a sales tax identification number, which is to be sent to KANNAWAY immediately following (but at the latest within 30 days of) receipt of the transfer submission request, or if no sales tax identification number is available, the application for the issuance of a sales tax identification number within the aforementioned period. KANNAWAY will pay out the commission only after the submission of the sales tax identification number and will make use of its right of lien until that point. The possibility of blocking in accordance with the provisions of Section 15(1) of these General Conditions regarding Sales Partners is expressly noted.

(5) The Brand Ambassador's commission will be credited weakly and monthly and can be paid into accounts held in the relevant Brand Ambassador's name or that of a non-incorporated firm or of a legal person with whom KANNAWAY has a contractual relationship, unless payment into a different account not has been expressly and separately agreed in writing by KANNAWAY. Payments cannot be made into foreign bank accounts or similar outside of the state in which the Brand Ambassador is registered.

(6) The sales partners agree that there are no claims for commission which are higher than those underlying this contract, nor can such claims be asserted. Upon payment of the commission, all claims of the sales partner are settled, in particular all travel costs, expenses, office costs, telephone costs and other expenses for advertising materials, as well as all other costs incurred in connection with the performance of the contract. Furthermore, upon payment of the compensation referred to in (1), all services of the Brand Ambassadors are settled, in particular for the manufacture and maintenance of the sales partner's stock (downline), the customer stock and the resulting future market potential, and are deemed to be an advance payment for this, such that in the event of termination of the contract by any party and for whatever reason, KANNAWAY need pay no severance payments and/or compensation claims for whatever legal reason. Section 16(5) is explicitly referred to.

(7) KANNAWAY is entitled to assert a right of retention within the framework of the legal specifications. Furthermore, KANNAWAY is entitled to assert a right of retention due to the payment of commissions, if not all the contractually or legally required documents (such as the sales tax identification number in the case of legal persons) are in place prior to the first disbursement, insofar as they have been requested and issued. In the case of the exercise of the right of retention of commission payments by KANNAWAY, it is deemed as agreed that the Brand Ambassadors shall have no claim for interest for the period of the retention of the commission.

(8) KANNAWAY is entitled to completely or partially offset KANNAWAY's claims against the Brand Ambassadors with the commission claims. The Brand Ambassadors are entitled to offset, if the counterclaims are uncontested or have been legally established.

(9) The assignment or pledging of claims of the Brand Ambassadors arising from Brand Ambassador Contracts is excluded, to the extent that mandatory law does not preclude this arrangement. The contract may not be encumbered with the rights of a third party, to the extent that mandatory law does not preclude this arrangement.

(10) The Brand Ambassadors shall check the invoices issued at once and direct any objections to KANNAWAY without undue delay. All commission claims result from the respectively valid Compensation Plan. Written notice of incorrect commission, bonuses or other payments is to be sent to KANNAWAY within 60 days of the incorrect payment. After this date, the commission, bonuses or other payments are deemed approved.

(11) The commission is paid out to the Brand Ambassadors on a monthly basis, taking into account KANNAWAY's payment arrangements and methods. KANNAWAY reserves the right to pay commission only when it totals US-Dollar 25.00 or more. In the event that the minimum payment amount is not reached, the commission claims are carried over to the business accounts held at KANNAWAY for the Brand Ambassadors, and will be paid out to the Brand Ambassadors the following month after having reached the minimum payment amount[AS12] .

§ 15 Blocking of Brand Ambassadors

(1) In the event that the Brand Ambassadors do not submit the requested documents or evidence [e.g. the sales tax identification number or a corresponding application pursuant to Section 14(4)] within 30 days following a request by KANNAWAY, KANNAWAY is entitled to temporarily block the Brand Ambassadors on the KANNAWAY system until such time as the necessary documents or evidence are provided.

(2) Compensation or commission advances or other payments which cannot be paid out due to the reasons mentioned are posted by KANNAWAY as non-interest-yielding deferred liabilities and shall expire at the latest within the statutory limitation periods.

(3) Irrespective of the reasons for blocking mentioned in (1), KANNAWAY reserves the right to block certain Brand Ambassadors if there is good cause. In particular, KANNAWAY reserves the right to temporarily block Brand Ambassadors' access without notice if the Brand Ambassadors breach the duties stated in Section 7 - 9 and Section 10 Paragraphs 3 and 4, or breach other applicable laws, or if there is other good cause, until the elimination of the breach of duty, upon corresponding written warning sent by KANNAWAY. A right to definitive blocking also exists, insofar as KANNAWAY is entitled to extraordinarily terminate the contract due to an aforementioned breach of duty.

(4) The duration of a temporary block or a definitive block does not entitle Brand Ambassadors to extraordinary termination, and gives no right to reclaim amounts already paid for the starter set, or to any other damages, except where the Brand Ambassadors are not responsible for the blocking.

§ 16 Contract Duration, End of Contract

 

(1) The sales partner contract is agreed for a period of 12 months and may also be properly terminated by the Brand Ambassadors within the term of the contract at any time. The contract is automatically extended for a further 12 months upon payment of the Brand Ambassador Fee within the meaning of Section 6(2), unless a party to the contract terminates it by giving one month's notice to the end of the 12-month contract period. In the case of non-payment of the annual Brand Ambassador Fee within the meaning of Section 6(2), the sales partner contract automatically ends. The Brand Ambassadors retain the possibility – during a period of 60 days after the end of the contract – to reactivate the sales partner contract by payment of the Brand Ambassador Fee, thus also reinstating compensation claims, provided that the necessary requirements and other contractual conditions are met in the month in which the reactivation occurs. No refund is possible for the time between the end of the contract and reactivation of the same.

(2) Notwithstanding the grounds for termination as per (1), both parties have the right to extraordinarily terminate the sales partner contract for good cause. Good cause for termination by KANNAWAY also exists in the event of a breach of one of the duties governed by Section 7, where the Brand Ambassadors do not comply with their rectification duties within the meaning Section 11 Paragraph (1), or if, after the rectification of the breach of duty, the same or a similar breach occurs again at a later date. Likewise, in the event of a breach of Section 14(3), extraordinary grounds for termination exist insofar as the Brand Ambassadors fail to provide the relevant evidence even after the setting of a further deadline. In the event of a breach of the duties governed by Sections 8, 9 and 10(3) and (4), 18(3) or 19, and in the event of a very serious breach of the other contractual or legal rights as per Section 7, KANNAWAY is entitled to effect extraordinary termination without prior written warning. Furthermore, each party has grounds for extraordinary termination if insolvency proceedings are opened against the other party, or if such opening is rejected due to a lack of assets, or if the other party is otherwise insolvent, or if, within the scope of a foreclosure, an affidavit of insolvency is submitted. The right to extraordinary termination exists without prejudice to further claims.

(3) After the end of a contract, a new contract may be concluded only after the expiry of a period of at least 6 months.

(4) At the end of the contract, the Brand Ambassadors have no further right to commission, and no further permission to act for KANNAWAY or to identify themselves as Brand Ambassadors, nor may they continue to use trademarks or other distinguishing marks or protected rights, works of copyright or domains that contain a trademark or other distinguishing marks of KANNAWAY, after the end of the contract. The inapplicability of claims for commission does not hold for contracts already successfully brokered at this point in time, which continue unaffected. Furthermore, the Brand Ambassadors are not entitled, after the end of the contract, to assert sales agent indemnification payment claims or any other claims for compensation, as the Brand Ambassadors, in accordance with the provisions of Section 4(1), are not sales agents within the meaning of the commercial code.

(5) Notice of termination is only accepted in written form. Such notice must state the name and address of the sales partner in capital letters, the ID number of the Brand Ambassador and his/her signature.

(6) In the case of early termination of the sales partner contract within the 12-month period by the Brand Ambassadors there is no entitlement to a refund of the fees paid within the meaning of Section 6(2), or of any other benefits already paid in connection with the sales partner contract, except if the Brand Ambassadors extraordinarily terminate the contract for good cause, or if a refund is expressly mentioned in these General Conditions regarding Sales Partners.

(7) If the Brand Ambassadors at the same time lay claim to services independent of the sales partner contract, such services shall remain in force as from the end of the sales partner contract in an unaffected manner, unless the Brand Ambassadors also expressly demand the cessation of such services upon termination. If the Brand Ambassadors continue to purchase services from KANNAWAY after the end of the contract, they will be rendered as for a regular customer.

 

§ 17 Data Protection Obligations of the Brand Ambassadors

 

The Brand Ambassadors are prohibited from passing on, saving or using the personal or customer-specific data of end customers of which they become cognizant, beyond the extent of contractual rights and/or requirements.

§ 18 Transfer of Business / of the Sponsored Structure to Third Parties / Death of Brand Ambassadors

(1) KANNAWAY may transfer its business in whole or in part, or indeed individual assets, to third parties at any time, provided that the acquirer adheres to the applicable law.

(2) If a legal person or non-incorporated firm is registered as a Brand Ambassador, a transfer of the sales structure is permitted only if compliance with the other requirements of this contract is ensured.

(3) Although a Kannaway business is a privately owned, independently operated business, the sale, transfer or assignment of a Kannaway business, and the sale, transfer or assignment of an interest in a Business Entity that owns or operates a Kannaway Brand Ambassador business, is subject to certain limitations. If a Brand Ambassador wishes to sell his or her Kannaway business, or interest in a Business Entity that owns or operates a Kannaway business, the following criteria must be met:

·         The selling Brand Ambassador must be qualified at the Director level or higher,
·         The selling Brand Ambassador must offer Kannaway the right of first refusal to purchase the business on the same terms as agreed upon with a third-party buyer. Kannaway shall have fifteen (15) 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 Brand Ambassador. If the buyer is an active Kannaway Brand Ambassador, he or she must first terminate his or her Kannaway business and wait six (6) calendar months before acquiring any interest in a different Kannaway business;
·         Before the sale, transfer or assignment can be finalized and approved by Kannaway, any debt obligations the selling party has with Kannaway 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 a Kannaway Brand Ambassador business.

Prior to selling a Business Entity interest, the selling party must notify Kannaways Compliance Department in writing and advise of his or her intent to sell Kannaways business or Business Entity interest. The selling party must also receive written approval from the Compliance Department before proceeding with the sale.

(4) The sales partner contract shall end at the latest upon the death of the Brand Ambassador. The sales partner contract may be bequeathed, in compliance with the statutory requirements. Within 6 months after the occurrence of death, a new sales partner contract must be concluded by the heir(s), whereby the latter assume the rights and obligations of the deceased. If the heir or one of the heirs is already registered as a KANNAWAY Brand Ambassador as a natural person, given that each natural person may occupy only one position on the marketing plan, the heir must either renounce his/her previous position in the KANNAWAY sales structure, or if the conditions of Section 18(4) have been met, he/she must transfer to a third party one of the two future sales structures in accordance with the provisions of Section 18 (4). Death is to be evidenced by a death certificate. Insofar as there is a written will regarding the inheritance of the sales partner contract, a notarized copy of the will is to be submitted. After expiry of an unexploited six-month period, all rights and obligations from the contract are transferred to KANNAWAY. Exceptionally, the six-month period may be extended by a reasonable duration if, in individual cases, it is disproportionately short for the heir(s).

§ 19 Separation / Dissolution

In the event that a married couple, a couple in an official civil union, a legal person or non-incorporated firm registered as a Brand Ambassador end their association on an internal level, even after such separation, dissolution or other termination, one of the aforementioned associations shall remain in the position of sales partner. The separating members/shareholders must agree internally which member/shareholder will continue the sales partnership, and this must be notified to KANNAWAY by one of the two parties in the form of a signed and notarized written notice or by the production of a court order. In the case of an internal dispute about the consequences of the separation, divorce, dissolution, or other termination in relation to the KANNAWAY sales partnership the latter reserves the right of extraordinary termination, where such a dispute leads to a neglecting of the obligations of the Brand Ambassador, to a breach of these General Conditions regarding Sales Partners, to a breach of law or to an unreasonable burden on the KANNAWAY Downline or Upline.

§ 20 Consent for the Use of Photographic and Audio-Visual Materials, Use of Records of Materials and Presentations

(1) The Brand Ambassadors grant KANNAWAY the right, without charge, to create or carry out photographic and/or audio-visual materials with their image, voice recordings or statements and quotes from them in the context of their role as Brand Ambassador. To this extent, the Brand Ambassadors expressly consent – by signing the sales partner application and in the knowledge of these General Conditions regarding Sales Partners – to the publication, use, reproduction and amendment of their quotes, audio recordings or visual recordings by KANNAWAY for advertising and marketing purposes, as well as for content and actions internal to the corporation.

(2) The Brand Ambassadors are not permitted – for selling or for business purposes – to produce and/or use audio, video or other records of KANNAWAY events, or of KANNAWAY telephone conferences, speeches or meetings.

§ 21 Data privacy

Following anonymous evaluation for statistical purposes, this data is immediately deleted.

(3) Personal data will only be collected if the Brand Ambassadors communicate such data voluntarily in the context of the order or registration process.

(4) For the purpose of fulfillment of the contract, such as the settlement or payment of commission, product and marketing information (e.g. via newsletter) the personal data of the Brand Ambassadors is forwarded to third parties such as accounting departments, the paying bank or suppliers, insofar as this is necessary for the fulfillment of the aforementioned contractual obligations. Upon completion of the contract, including full payment of the agreed remuneration, the data of the Brand Ambassadors is deleted. Data which must be kept due to reasons of fiscal or commercial law, is blocked after the execution of the contract unless the Brand Ambassadors have expressly agreed to the further use of their personal data.

(5) The Brand Ambassadors are entitled at any time to demand information about their data free of charge, as well as the amendment, blocking or deletion of their data (again free of charge), unless this endangers the fulfillment of the contract by KANNAWAY. If the Brand Ambassadors would like more information about the storage of their personal data or the deletion, blocking or amendment of the data of the interested party, support can be obtained via the email address or postal address given in Section 1.

(6) This data privacy statement can be viewed and called up at any time via the KANNAWAY website.

§ 22 Exclusion of Liability

 

(1) KANNAWAY is liable for damage caused other than through injury to life, limb or health only insofar as such damage is due to intentional or grossly negligent action or culpable violation of an essential contractual obligation (e.g. payment of commission) by KANNAWAY, its employees or vicarious agents. This also applies to damages resulting from a breach of duties in contract negotiations, as well as from the performance of tortious acts. Any further liability for damages is excluded.

(2) Liability is, except in the case of the injury to life, limb or health, or intentional or grossly negligent behavior by KANNAWAY, its employees or vicarious agents, limited to the damage typically predictable upon conclusion of the contract and otherwise to the amount of average damages deemed typical for the contract. This is also valid for indirect damages, including lost profit.

(3) KANNAWAY is not liable for any damage whatsoever occurring through the loss of data on the servers, except in the case of gross negligence or willful misconduct by KANNAWAY, its employees or vicarious agents.

(4) Content belonging to the Brand Ambassadors and secured by KANNAWAY is deemed to be third-party information for KANNAWAY, within the meaning of the German Telemedia Act (TMG).

§ 23 Limitation Period

 

(1) All claims arising from this contractual relationship shall lapse for both parties within 6 months, insofar as this is legally permissible. The limitation period begins upon maturity of the claim or at the time of the emergence of the claim or the possibility of recognition of the claim. Mandatory legal regulations which provide for a longer period of limitation, shall remain unaffected.

§ 24 Inclusion of the Compensation Plan

 

(1) The KANNAWAY Compensation Plan and its specifications also expressly form part of the sales partner contract. The Brand Ambassadors must adhere at all times to these specifications, in accordance with the respectively valid version.

(2) In sending the Brand Ambassador application to KANNAWAY, the Brand Ambassadors thus guarantee that they are cognizant of the KANNAWAY Compensation Plan and accept it as an integral part of the contract.

(3) KANNAWAY is entitled to amend the KANNAWAY Compensation Plan at any time. KANNAWAY will announce changes to the Compensation Plan, giving reasonable notice. The Brand Ambassadors have the right to object to the Compensation Plan amendment. In the event of an objection, the Brand Ambassadors are entitled to terminate the contract at the time of entry into force of the amendment. If they do not terminate the contract within four weeks after the date of entry into force of the amendment, the Brand Ambassadors are expressly deemed to have accepted the amendment[AS13] .

§ 25 SATISFACTION GUARANTEED AND RETURN OF SALES AIDS


(1) KANNAWAY offers a one hundred percent (100%) thirty-day money back guarantee for all customers and Brand Ambassadors. If a customer purchased a product and is not satisfied with it, the customer may request a refund from their Brand Ambassador. The Brand Ambassador will then return the product(s) back to KANNAWAY for a refund of the wholesale purchase price. If a Brand Ambassador is not 100% satisfied with our products or is unable to sell it, he or she may return the item(s) for a refund if the products were purchased within 30 days and remain in resalable condition.

If the purchases were made through a credit card, the refund will be credited back to the same account. The Company shall deduct from the reimbursement paid to the Brand Ambassador any commissions, bonuses, rebates or other incentives received by the Brand Ambassador, which were associated with the merchandise that is returned.

(2) Voluntary Cancellation of Contract

Requests by a Brand Ambassador to return their sales aids or inventory for a refund will be treated as a request to voluntarily cancel that Brand Ambassador business. If a Brand Ambassador wishes to return sales aids or inventory purchased within the last 3-month period (or as applicable law dictates), the Company shall repurchase the inventory and sales aids and the Associates Agreement shall be canceled. A Brand Ambassador may only return sales aids or inventory purchased by him or her that are in new and resalable condition.

Upon receipt of the sales aids or inventory, the Brand Ambassador will be reimbursed 90% of the cost of the original purchase price(s), not to include shipping and handling charges. If the purchases were made through a credit card, the refund will be credited back to the same account.

a)    Brand Ambassador must inform the company of intent to exercise the sales aid and inventory buy-back option within 10 business days of resignation notice.
b)    All products to be returned for refund under this provision must be approved in advance of shipment to KANNAWAY by calling the Customer Services Department.
c)    Brand Ambassador will be asked to submit invoices detailing the sales aid and inventory items to be returned.
d)    Upon approval from the company, returns may be sent to the companys headquarters and must be accompanied by an invoice copy for each item.

 

(3) Return Process


All returns, whether by a Customer, or Brand Ambassador, must be made as follows:

a)   Obtain RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) from KANNAWAY.
b)   Ship items to the address provided by KANNAWAY Customer service when you are given your RMA.
c)   Provide a copy of the invoice with the returned products or service. Such invoice must reference the RMA and include the reason for the return.
d)   Ship back product in manufacturers box exactly as it was delivered.

All returns must be shipped to KANNAWAY pre-paid, as KANNAWAY does not accept shipping collect packages. KANNAWAY recommends shipping returned product by UPS or FedEx with tracking, as risk of loss in shipping the returned product shall be borne solely by the Customer, or Brand Ambassador. If returned product is not received at KANNAWAY Distribution Center, it is the responsibility of the Customer, or Brand Ambassador to trace the shipment and no credit will be applied.

§ 26 Applicable Law/Jurisdiction

 

(1) Valid law at the headquarters of KANNAWAY shall apply, to the exclusion of the CISG. Mandatory regulations of the state in which the Brand Ambassadors have their habitual residence remain unaffected.

(2) If the Brand Ambassador is a merchant, a legal person under public law or a special fund under public law, or has no general place of jurisdiction in Germany or, after conclusion of the contract, moves its residence abroad, or his/her/its place of residence at the time the lawsuit is brought is not known, then the place of jurisdiction and place of performance is the headquarters of KANNAWAY (Germany).

§ 27 Final provisions


(1) KANNAWAY is entitled to amend the General Conditions regarding Sales Partners at any time. KANNAWAY will announce amendments with reasonable notice. The Brand Ambassadors have the right to object to the amendment. In the event of an objection, the Brand Ambassadors are entitled to terminate the contract at the time of entry into force of the amendment. If they do not terminate the contract within four weeks after the date of entry into force of the amendment, the Brand Ambassadors are expressly deemed to have accepted the amendment.


(2) Amendments or additions to these General Conditions regarding Sales Partners must otherwise be given in writing. This also applies for the revocation of the written-form requirement.

(3) If these General Conditions regarding Sales Partners are translated into any other language, and there are contradictions in any provision between the German and the translated versions of the General Conditions regarding Sales Partners, the German version shall always prevail.

(4) In the case of invalidity or incompleteness of a clause of these General Conditions regarding Sales Partners, this shall not render the entire contract ineffective. Rather, the ineffective clause shall be replaced by one that is effective and which comes closest to the meaning of the invalid provision in an economic sense. The same is for the closure any loopholes in the provisions in need of closure.

(5) Any request from a Brand Ambassador for copies of invoices, agreements, Downline activity reports or other records/reports 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.
