Upon cancellation of an Ambassador’s Agreement for any reason, the license shall expire and the Ambassador shall immediately discontinue all use of the Company’s trademarks and trade names. Under no circumstances may an Ambassador use any of Girl Power Alliance’s trademarks or trade names in any email address, website domain name, social media handle, social media name or address.
Girl Power Alliance commonly puts on live and recorded events as well as webinars and telephone conference calls. During these events Company executives, Ambassadors, and guests appear and speak. The content of such events is copyrighted material that is owned exclusively by the Company. Ambassadors may not record company functions for any reason, whether such event is live, a webinar, via conference call, or delivered through any other medium.
In addition, Company produced Sales Tools, videos, audios, podcasts, and printed material is also copyrighted. Ambassadors shall not copy any such materials for their personal or business use without the Company’s prior written approval.
- Change of Sponsor. The only means by which an Ambassador may legitimately change his/her sponsor are by:
(a) Voluntarily canceling his/her Girl Power Alliance business and remaining inactive for six (6) full calendar months (12 full calendar months if the Ambassador has attained the rank of Elite 1 or above). Following the period of inactivity, the former Ambassador may reapply under a new sponsor. The Ambassador will lose all rights to his/her former downline organization upon his/her cancellation; or
(b) Submitting a written request to the Company for a change of sponsor.
The Ambassador requesting the transfer must also submit written and signed transfer authorization forms from his/her immediate seven (7) upline Ambassadors. The transfer authorizations must be submitted to Girl Power Alliance within 30 days from the date of the Ambassador’s transfer request.
- Waiver of Claims. In cases wherein an Ambassador improperly changes his/her sponsor, Girl Power Alliance reserves the sole and exclusive right to determine the final disposition of the downline organization that was developed by the Ambassador in his/her second line of sponsorship. AMBASSADORS WAIVE ANY AND ALL CLAIMS AGAINST Girl Power Alliance, ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, OWNERS, EMPLOYEES, AND AGENTS THAT RELATE TO OR ARISE FROM Girl Power Alliance’S DECISION REGARDING THE DISPOSITION OF ANY DOWNLINE ORGANIZATION THAT DEVELOPS BELOW AN AMBASSADOR WHO HAS IMPROPERLY CHANGED HIS/HER SPONSOR.
- Income Claims. When presenting or discussing the Girl Power Alliance opportunity or Compensation Plan to a prospective Ambassador, Ambassadors may not make income projec- tions, income claims, income testimonials, or disclose their Girl Power Alliance income (including, but not limited to, the showing of checks, copies of checks, bank statements, or tax records), or the income of any other Girl Power Alliance Ambassador. Nor may Ambassadors make “lifestyle” income claims. A “lifestyle” income claim is a statement or depiction that infers or states that the Ambassador is able to enjoy a luxurious or successful lifestyle due to the in- come they earn from their Girl Power Alliance business. Examples of prohibited lifestyle claims include, but are not limited to, representations (either through audio or visual medium) that an Ambassador was able to quit his/her job, acquire expensive or luxury material posses- sions, or travel to exotic or expensive destinations.
- Compensation Plan and Program Claims. When presenting or discussing the Girl Power Alliance compensation plan, you must make it clear to prospects that financial success in Girl Power Alliance requires commitment, effort, and sales skill. Conversely, you must never represent that one can be successful without diligently applying themselves. Examples of misrepresentations in this area include, but are not limited to:
- It’s a turnkey system.
- The system will do the work for you.
- Just get in and your downline will build through spillover.
- Just join and I’ll build your downline for you.
- The Company does all the work for you.
- You don’t have to sell anything.
- All you have to do is buy your products every month.
The above are just examples of improper representations about the compensation plan and the Company’s program. It is important that you do not make these, or any other representations, that could lead a prospect to believe that they can be successful as an Ambassador without commitment, effort, and sales skill.
- Media Inquiries. Ambassadors must not interact with the media regarding the Girl Power Alliance business or products. All inquiries from the media, including radio, television, print, online, or any other medium, shall be directed to Girl Power Alliance’s marketing department.
- Non Solicitation. Girl Power Alliance Ambassadors at any rank are free to participate in other network marketing programs. However, during the term of this Agreement and for 12 calendar months thereafter, an Ambassador may not directly or indirectly Recruit other Girl Power Alliance Ambassadors for any other network marketing business or sell any other goods or services to Members with the intent of having them terminate and/or replace their Girl Power Alliance Ambassador business or cancel their Girl Power Alliance subscription. The term “Recruit” means the direct or indirect, actual or attempted, sponsorship, solicitation, enrollment, encouragement, or effort to influence in any other way, another Girl Power Alliance Ambassador to enroll or participate in another network marketing opportunity that would cause the Ambassa- dor to cancel or otherwise stop building their Girl Power Alliance Ambassador business. This conduct constitutes Recruiting even if the Ambassador’s actions are in response to an inquiry made by another Ambassador. A non-rebuttable presumption establishing an Ambassador’s intent to violate his/her obligations under this policy shall exist if: (a) Girl Power Alliance presents credible evidence that the Ambassador solicited another Ambassador for another network marketing business while his/her Girl Power Alliance Agreement was in effect or within 12 calendar months thereafter; and (b) the Ambassador who was recruited for another network marketing business cancels his/her Girl Power Alliance business (via any method) or allows it to lapse or non-renew while the soliciting Ambassador’s Girl Power Alliance Agreement was in effect or within 12 calendar months thereafter or (a) If Girl Power Alliance presents credible evidence that an Ambassador sells non-Girl Power Alliance goods or services to a Member while the Ambassadors Agreement is in effect or within 12 calendar months thereafter; and (b) the Member cancels his/her Girl Power Alliance subscription or allows his/her Girl Power Alliance subscription to lapse or non-renew while the Soliciting Ambassador’s Girl Power Alliance Agreement is in effect or within 12 calendar months thereafter. The cancellation or lapse of an Ambassador’s business or a Member’s subscription shall not be the only evidence permitted to prove a violation of this policy.
Ambassadors may not have control over, or own 5% or more, of any business that com- pensates its sales force pursuant to a multi-level compensation plan or that sells goods or services that compete with those of Girl Power Alliance.
- Non Disparagement. Negative comments in the field serve only to sour the enthusiasm of other Ambassadors. Therefore, Ambassadors shall not disparage, libel, slander, or make negative or critical comments to any other Ambassador or third party regarding the Girl Power Alliance, its management, products or compensation plan. All criticism must be directed exclusively to the Company at [email protected]
Business Entities must designate ONE individual as the contact person for the entity, who speaks for the entity and who is authorized to bind the entity.
Business entities must update their ownership to ensure that Girl Power Alliance has up to date records of the business entity ownership. Ownership updates must be sent to [email protected] PowerAlliance.com.
- Confidential Information. “Confidential Information” includes trade secrets, the identities, contact information, and/or sales information relating to Girl Power Alliance’s Ambassadors and/or customers: (a) that is contained in or derived from any Ambassadors’ respective Ambassador Back-Office; (b) that is derived from any reports issued by Girl Power Alliance to Ambassadors to assist them in operating and managing their Girl Power Alliance business; and/or (c) to which an Ambassador would not have access or would not have acquired but for his/her affiliation with Girl Power Alliance. Confidential Information constitutes proprietary business trade secrets belonging exclusively to Girl Power Alliance and is provided to Ambassadors in strict confidence. Confidential Information shall not be directly or indirectly disclosed to any third party nor used for any purpose other than Ambassador’s use in building and managing his/her Independent Girl Power Alliance business.
- Handling Personal Information. If you receive Personal Information from or about prospective Ambassadors or customers, it is your responsibility to maintain its security. You should shred or irreversibly delete the Personal Information of others once you no longer need it. Personal Information is information that identifies, or permits you to contact, an individual. It includes a customer’s, potential customers, Ambassadors and prospective Ambassadors’ name, address, email address, phone number, credit card information, social security or tax identification number and other information associated with these details.
- Bonus Buying. Bonus buying is prohibited. Bonus buying is the purchase of merchandise for any reason other than bonafide use, or any mechanism or artifice to qualify for rank advancement or maintenance, incentives, prizes, commissions or bonuses that are not driven by bonafide purchases by consumers for actual use.
- Limitations on Ambassador and Household Businesses. Ambassadors may own, operate, control, or have an interest in, only one Girl Power Alliance business, and there may be no more than two Girl Power Alliance businesses in a household. A “household” is defined as spouses or couples, and dependent children of one or both spouses or couples, living in the same home of the spouses or member of the couple. There may be no more than two Girl Power Alliance businesses per household. If there are two businesses in the household, both businesses must have the same sponsor or one Household Business must be the immediate Sponsor of the other Household business.
- Actions of Third-Parties. If a third party acting on behalf of, or with the active or passive assistance or knowledge of an Ambassador engages in conduct that would be a violation of the Agreement, the conduct of the third-party may be imputed to the Ambassador. “Knowledge” of misconduct is not limited to actual knowledge. If an Ambassador engages in acts or omissions that the Ambassador knows or SHOULD KNOW will enable a third party to violate this Agreement if such action was taken by the Ambassador, the Ambassador shall be deemed to have knowledge of the violation.
- Business Entities. If a Girl Power Alliance business is owned or operated by a business entity (examples of business entities include a trust, an Inc, or a corporation), the act or omission of one owner of the business entity may be imputed to the business entity and/or the other owners. The Company may hold the business entity and each owner jointly or severally responsible for the acts or omissions of any other owner or the entity itself. All members, managers, shareholders, trustees, partners or others with any ownership interest in the business entity (collectively “Owners”) shall be jointly and severally liable for all Agreements entered into with Girl Power Alliance. Each Owner is individually bound to Girl Power Alliance’s Terms & Policies and all documents incorporated by reference into the Independent Ambassador Application and Agreement (collectively the “Agreement”). All documents comprising the Agreement are available in each Independent Ambassador’s Back Office. Violation of the Agreement by any Owner of a Business Entity may be jointly and severally imputed to the Entity and all Owners of the Entity Failure to list all appropriate persons and/or provide Girl Power Alliance with an ownership update as ownership changes occur, shall be grounds for disciplinary sanctions against the Entity and/or any or all of the individual Owners.
- Adjustment to Bonuses and Commissions. Compensation stemming from product sales is fully earned when the applicable return, repurchase, and chargeback periods applicable to product sales have all expired. If a product is returned to Girl Power Alliance for a refund or is repurchased by the Company, or a chargeback occurs, the compensation attributable to the returned or repurchased product(s) will be recovered by the Company. Unearned compensation will be deducted, in the month in which the refund is issued or the chargeback occurs and continuing every pay period thereafter until the commission is recovered, from the upline Ambassadors who received bonuses and commissions on the sales of the refunded products. Likewise, if it is the responsibility of an Ambassador to issue a refund to a customer, but Girl Power Alliance issues the refund, the Company may deduct the amount refunded to the customer from the Ambassador’s subsequent bonuses and commissions.
Girl Power Alliance reserves the right to withhold or reduce any Ambassador’s compensation as it deems necessary to comply with any garnishment or court order directing Girl Power Alliance to retain, hold, or redirect such compensation to a third party.
- Return of Merchandise and Sales Aids by Ambassadors Upon Cancellation or Termination. Within 30 days from the cancellation or termination of an Ambassador’s Agreement, the Ambassador may return products and Sales Tools that he or she personally purchased from Girl Power Alliance within 12 months prior to the date of cancellation (the one-year limitation shall not apply to residents of Louisiana, Massachusetts and Wyoming) so long as the goods are in currently marketable condition and are returned to the Company within 30 days from the date of the Ambassador’s cancellation or termination. Upon the Company’s timely receipt of returned goods and confirmation that they are in currently marketable condition, the Ambassador will be reimbursed 90% of the net cost of the original purchase price(s). Shipping and handling charges will not be refunded. If the purchases were made through a credit card, the refund will be credited back to the same account.

- Disciplinary Sanctions. Violation of the Agreement, any illegal, fraudulent, deceptive or unethical business conduct, or any act or omission by an Ambassador that the Company reasonably believes may damage its reputation or goodwill, may result in the suspension or termination of the Ambassador’s Girl Power Alliance business, and/or any other disciplinary measure that Girl Power Alliance deems appropriate to address the misconduct. In situations deemed appropriate by Girl Power Alliance, the Company may institute legal proceedings for monetary and/or equitable relief.
- Compliance Disclosure to Upline. If disciplinary action is taken against you for violation of the Agreement, we may disclose the details of the matter and the resolution to your upline distributors.
- Indemnification. Ambassadors agree to indemnify Girl Power Alliance for all costs, expenses, consumer reimbursements, fines, sanctions, damages, settlements or payments of any other nature that Girl Power Alliance incurs resulting from or relating to any act or omission by Ambassador that is illegal, fraudulent, deceptive, negligent, unethical, or in violation of the Agreement. Girl Power Alliance may elect to exercise its indemnification rights through withholding any compensation due the Ambassador. This right of setoff shall not constitute Girl Power Alliance’s exclusive means of recovering or collecting funds due Girl Power Alliance pursuant to its right to indemnification.
- Effect of Cancellation. An Ambassador whose business is canceled for any reason will lose all Ambassador rights, benefits and privileges. This includes the right to represent yourself as an Independent Girl Power Alliance Ambassador, to sell Girl Power Alliance products and services and the right to receive commissions, bonuses, or other income resulting from his/her own sales and the sales and other activities of the Ambassador and the Ambassador’s former downline sales organization. There is no whole or partial refund for tangible sales kits that are not currently marketable, Ambassador Back-Office, replicated website or renewal fees if an Ambassador’s business is canceled.
- Voluntary Cancellation. A participant in this network marketing plan has a right to cancel at any time, regardless of reason. Cancellation shall be effective by: (a) submitting written cancellation to the Company at its principal business address or by canceling his/her business through the Ambassador Back-Office; (b) the Company may (but is not required to) rely on any public announcement of resignation or cancellation by the Ambassador (including but not lim- ited to any announcement on social media) as an effective cancellation; (c) failure to pay Back-Office and Replicated Website fees; (d) Revoking your authorization to contract electronically; or (e) any other means authorized by Girl Power Alliance. If an Ambassador is also an Girl Power Alliance subscriber, the Ambassador’s membership shall continue unless the Ambassador also specifically requests that his or her membership subscription also be canceled.
- Cancellation for Inactivity. If an Ambassador fails to earn a commission for six consecutive months or to generate at least 340 PV in any rolling 12-consecutive month period, his/her Ambassador Agreement and Girl Power Alliance business will be canceled for inactivity. If an Ambassador is also a Girl Power Alliance subscriber, the Ambassador’s Girl Power Alliance membership subscription shall continue unless the Ambassador also specifically requests that it be canceled.
- Business Transfers. Ambassadors in good standing who wish to sell or transfer their business must receive Girl Power Alliance’s prior written approval before the business may be transferred. A business that is on disciplinary probation, suspension, or under disciplinary investigation is not in good standing and may not be transferred unless and until the disciplinary matter is resolved. Requests to transfer a business must be submitted in writing to [email protected] The request to transfer will be denied if the business is not in good standing or if there is another reasonable reason for denying the request. Prior to transferring a business to a third party, the Ambassador must offer the Company the right of first refusal to purchase the business on the same terms as negotiated with a third party. The Company shall have ten days to exercise its right of first refusal.
- Transfer Upon an Ambassador’s Death. An Ambassador may devise his/her business to his/her heirs. Because Girl Power Alliance cannot divide commissions among multiple beneficiaries or transferees, the beneficiaries or transferees must form a business entity (corporation, Inc, partnership, etc.), and Girl Power Alliance will transfer the business and issue commissions to the business entity. In the case of a business transfer via testamentary instrument, the beneficiary(s) of the business must provide Girl Power Alliance with certified letters testamentary and written instructions of the trustee of the estate, or an order of the court, that provides direction on the proper disposition of the business. The beneficiary(s) must also execute and submit to the Company an Girl Power Alliance Ambassador Agreement within 30 days from the date on which the business is transferred by the estate to the beneficiary or the business will be canceled..
- Business Distribution Upon Divorce. Girl Power Alliance is not able to divide commissions among multiple parties, nor is it able to divide a downline organization. Consequently, in divorce cases, any settlement or divorce decree must award the business in its entirety to one party. Girl Power Alliance will recognize as the owner of the business the former spouse to who is awarded the business pursuant to a legally binding settlement agreement or decree of the court. The former spouse who receives the Girl Power Alliance business must also execute and submit an Girl Power Alliance Ambassador Agreement within 30 days from the date on which the divorce becomes final or the business will be canceled.
- Dissolution of a Business Entity. Girl Power Alliance is not able to divide commissions among multiple parties, nor is it able to divide a downline organization. Consequently, if a business entity that operates a Girl Power Alliance business dissolves, the owners of the business entity must instruct the Company on the identity of the proper party who is to receive the business. The Girl Power Alliance business must be awarded to a single individual or entity that was previously recognized by the Company as an owner of the business entity; the Company cannot divide the business among multiple parties or issue separate commission payments. If the business entity wishes to sell or transfer its Girl Power Alliance business, it must do so pursuant to policy 40. In addition, the recipient of the Girl Power Alliance business must also execute and submit an Girl Power Alliance Ambassador Agreement to the Company within 30 days from the date of the dissolution of the business entity or the Girl Power Alliance business will be canceled.
- Inducing Ambassadors to Violate the Agreement. Ambassadors shall not directly or indirectly induce, encourage, or assist another Ambassador to violate the Agreement.
- Reporting Errors. If an Ambassador believes that Girl Power Alliance has made an error in his/her compensation, the structure or organization of his/her genealogy, or any other error that impacts the Ambassador’s income, he/she must report it to the Company in writing within 60 days from the date on which the mistake occurred. While Girl Power Alliance shall use its best efforts to correct errors reported more than 60 days after the date of the error, Girl Power Alliance shall not be responsible to make changes or remunerate Ambassadors for losses for mistakes that are reported more than 60 days after the mistake occurs.
- International Activities. Ambassadors may not engage in business building activities in any foreign country that the Company has not announced is officially open for business. “Business building activities” does not include selling Girl Power Alliance membership subscriptions to customers.
48. If any policy is determined to be unenforceable, only the unenforceable policy shall be severed from the Agreement and all remaining policies shall remain in effect.
