SECTION 12 GENERAL PROVISIONS
12.1. CONTRACT CHANGES The company reserves the right to make any modifications to the Contract upon 30 days notice by publication and normal channels of communication. You agree that after 30 days, such changes shall be deemed effective and incorporated in the Contract between you and ALLIANCE IN MOTION GLOBAL, INC. Continuing to act as a Distributor and accepting any bonus or benefit after the modifications shall have become effective are express acts of acceptance of the new Contract terms.
12.2. WAIVERS AND EXCEPTIONS The Company reserves the right to make waivers and exceptions to the application of these Policies, provided it is expressly stated in writing. Any prior waiver or exception made as such shall not operate as a waiver of subsequent or additional breach nor as an exception for any other person. Any delay of the company to impose the sanctions set forth in these Policies shall not constitute a waiver of the company’s right to demand exact compliance with its rules and regulations, nor shall any custom or practice at variance with these rules obstruct this right.
12.3. GOVERNING LAW AND JURISDICTION The laws of the Philippines shall govern the resolution of any dispute arising from the enforcement of these provisions. The Court having jurisdiction over ALLIANCE IN MOTION GLOBAL, INC.’s Head Office shall be the exclusive venue for all legal actions concerning ALLIANCE IN MOTION GLOBAL, INC.
12.4. SEVERABILITY Any provision of the agreement between ALLIANCE IN MOTION GLOBAL, INC. and its Distributors, embodied in this document or otherwise, which has been judicially invalidated or otherwise rendered unenforceable shall not invalidate nor render unenforceable any other provision in the agreement.
Distributors can earn by simple retail sales of ALLIANCE IN MOTION GLOBAL, INC. Products. Distributors have a lifetime twenty five percent 25% discount on all products. This is called the Distributor Price (DP). They may then sell the products at a higher price, which should not be below the Suggested Retail Price (SRP), pursuant to the One Price Policy.
5.2.2. Direct Sponsoring
For every new person that a Distributor sponsors, he/she earns P500 and 1,200 Product Points.
5.2.3. Matched Sales Bonus
This is also known as the Binary System. Upon becoming a Distributor, the latter can form two (2) groups under his account, the Left Group and the Right Group. For each group, there can be several levels. To earn from this system, each level from the Left Group and each level from the Right Group must have a total of 1,200 points, which then reflects 2,400 points when combined. A Distributor immediately earns a Matched Sales Bonus of P 1,500 for every 2,400 combined group points. Every 5th Matched Sale (pair) entitles the Distributor to a Gift Cheque (GC) for products instead of cash to maintain product sales. For this system, it is important for the company to maintain a balance in both recruiting new Distributors and selling its products. A Distributor is not allowed to simply pull numerous recruits into the business and earn solely on the basis of the number of people he or she sponsors. This is why ALLIANCE IN MOTION GLOBAL, INC. utilizes the “Flush-out” system. The “flush-out” system works by allowing only sixteen (16) matched sales per day, divided eight (8) matched sales for two (2) time intervals or cycles.
16 Matched Sales per Day = (8 Matched Sales per Cycle) x (2 cycles per day)
1st Cycle : 12:00 am – 11:59am
2nd Cycle : 12:00pm – 11:59pm
A Distributor is not allowed to credit more than eight (8) matched sales for each cycle. Entering a ninth (9th) match within the same cycle will result to a “flush-out” of all the points accrued from the ninth (9th) match and he/she then goes back to zero points. However, the eight (8) matched sales will not be affected and will be converted to income immediately.
