The terms and conditions found in these Policies and Procedures (“Policies”), in their present form or as amended at any time by MELiUS EUROPE LTD (hereafter simply “Company” or “MELiUS”) in the future, are incorporated into and form an integral part of the MELiUS Independent Business Owner Agreement (“IBO Agreement”). Throughout these Policies, when the term “Agreement” is used, it collectively refers to the MELiUS IBO Agreement, these Policies, and the MELiUS Compensation Plan. These documents are incorporated by reference into the IBO Agreement (all in their current form and as amended by the Company now or at any time in the future). It is the responsibility of each IBO to read, understand, adhere to, and ensure that he or she is aware of and operating under the most current version of these Policies. When sponsoring a new IBO, it is the responsibility of the sponsoring IBO to provide the most current version of these Policies and Procedures prior to any execution of the IBO Agreement.
1.2 - Changes to the IBO Agreement, Policies and Procedures, or Compensation Plan
Because different laws and regulations, as well as the business environment, periodically change, Melius reserves the right to amend the Agreement and the prices of its services in its sole and absolute discretion. Further, the Company reserves the right to withdraw any of its services at any time without notice. Notification of amendments shall appear in Company Official Materials. Amendments shall be effective upon publication in such Company Official Materials, including but not limited to any of the following: (i) posting on the Corprate website, http://thinkmelius.com; (ii) e-mail distribution; (iii) or any other commercially reasonable method. The continuation of an IBO’s business or the acceptance of bonuses or commissions constitutes acceptance of all amendments.
1.3 - Delays
Melius shall not be responsible for delays and failures in performance of its obligations when performance is made commercially impracticable due to circumstances beyond its reasonable control. This includes, without limitation, strikes, labor difficulties, riot, war, fire, flood, death, curtailment of a party’s source of supply power or government decrees and/or orders.
1.4 – 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 and shall be construed as if such invalid, or unenforceable provision never comprised a part of the Agreement.
1.5 – Waiver
The Company never gives up its right to insist on compliance with the Agreement and with any applicable laws governing the conduct of a business. No failure of the Company to exercise any right or power under the Agreement or to insist upon strict compliance by an IBO 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 the Company’s right to demand exact compliance with the Agreement. Waiver by Melius can only be effectuated in writing by an authorized officer of the Company.
