A. Who is a Party to this Agreement? This Agreement is an individual contract between anyone applying to and/or participating in the Program (“You”) and Lifestyle Design International, LLC and its parent, subsidiary, and affiliated companies (“ENTRE,” “We,” “Our,” “Us,” or the “Company”).

II. The What: Nature of the Agreement
A. What is the Duration of the Agreement?This Agreement is for an initial term of twelve months unless terminated earlier by either party. It will renew annually until terminated as set forth later herein.
B. What is Your Status with the Company? Referral Partners are independent contractors. Referral Partners operate their own independent businesses, selling ENTRE’s products and services through their own efforts. Referral Partners have complete freedom in determining the number of hours devoted to their business and sole discretion of scheduling such work. Your efforts pursuant to this Agreement are independent endeavors and the Agreement does not create an employer/employee relationship, agency, partnership, or joint venture between You and the Company. You do not own any interest in the Company. You are not entitled to any Company benefits.
C. What is Your Authority to Bind the Company? None. You have no express or implied authority to bind ENTRE to any obligation or to make any commitments by or on behalf of the Company.
D. What Warranties Does the Company Provide? None. A warranty is a special type of promise. While ENTRE makes reasonable efforts to ensure its products, services and website(s) are operational, uninterrupted and error-free, we make no representation or warranty of such and will not be liable for consequences of any interruptions, errors or omissions. ANYTHING PROVIDED BY THE COMPANY IS ON AN “AS IS” BASIS AND WE DO NOT MAKE ANY WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING WITH RESPECT TO CONTENT, QUALITY, SUITABILITY, ACCURACY, TIMELINESS, COMPLETENESS, CORRECTNESS, RELIABILITY, MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, SECURITY OR PERFORMANCE ABOUT ANY DEVICE, GOODS, SERVICES OR ABOUT ANY DATA OR INFORMATION OR SERVICES PROVIDED THROUGH IT. ALL WARRANTIES ARE EXPRESSLY EXCLUDED BY THIS AGREEMENT.
E. What Happens if a Third Party Asserts a Claim Against the Company? You agree to indemnify ENTRE and hold it harmless from any and all liability including judgments, civil penalties, refunds, attorney fees, court costs or lost business incurred by the Company as a result of Your representations or actions.
III. The How: The Mechanics of the Agreement
A. How Can You Make Money? By participating in the Program, you become eligible to receive commission payments from ENTRE. These payments, which are in the Company’s sole discretion, are available to Referral Partners in good standing for compliant sales of ENTRE products and/or services to end users that are generated by the Referral Partner’s marketing efforts. Referral Partners must comply with this Agreement to be eligible for any commissions and must furnish the Company with an accurate and complete W9 or W8BEN, as required, before they are eligible to receive any commissions. ENTRE retains discretion to deny, diminish, or withhold commissions for any reason and has the sole and exclusive right to fully and finally resolve any and all disputes relating to any commissions or other compensation. ENTRE reserves the right to postpone commission payments to a Referral Partner for any reason, including but not limited to a de minimis amount of commissions due to the Referral Partner, to be defined as commissions that do not exceed $100.00 USD. Unpaid commissions will roll into the next commission period.
B. How are Commissions Calculated? Referral Partner commissions are payable based upon the Product List/Commission Scale below. The Company may change this scale at any time for any reason. Commissions are paid out based on the actual revenue collected by the Company and not any retail or published price of such products or services. Your commission eligibility is dependent on ENTRE actually receiving the final right to the related revenue and contingent upon Your compliance with this Agreement. This means You are not entitled to any commissions for transactions the customer has canceled, charged back, or disputed, transactions in which the customer has received a refund for any reason, or any other transaction where ENTRE does not receive the final right to the monies paid. You also may not be paid commissions where you have violated this Agreement.

Commissions for all live event sales are subject to a holdback period to ensure the Company receives the final right to the related revenue. Ten percent (10%) of any live event-related commissions will be retained by the Company for up to six months from the date of the event.
C. How are Taxes Paid? Referral Partners are responsible for calculating, withholding, and paying all applicable local, state, provincial, and federal taxes due from compensation earned as a Referral Partner. Referral Partners earning over $600.00 USD in a calendar year will receive IRS Form 1099-MISC reflecting the amount of income paid during that year.
D. How are You Paid? ENTRE pays its Referral Partners through a third-party ewallet provider (“eWallet”). Referral Partners are responsible for ensuring the complete setup of their eWallet account promptly upon establishing their Referral Partner account with ENTRE and will not receive any commission payouts until they have completed this process. Failure to properly complete the setup or maintain good-standing of an eWallet account may result in delay of or inability to receive commission payouts. In the event ENTRE is unable to payout to Your eWallet account for ninety (90) days, any and all commission payouts accrued shall be considered to be forfeited by the Referral Partner and will no longer be considered due or payable.
E. How Frequently Does the Company Send Payments? Referral Partner commission payments are typically issued on a weekly basis, assuming the cumulative amount earned meets/exceeds the threshold described elsewhere in this Agreement. Each pay period includes payment on actual sales revenue collected during the two weeks in arrears, Monday through Sunday, less any amount You owe to the Company as determined in its sole discretion.
F. How Does the Company Track Your Impact on Traffic? To best capture and track all guest visits from Your site to Ours, You must use the HTML code that we provide for each banner, text link, or other affiliate link. The Company cannot guarantee the accuracy of any efforts to link visitors to a particular Referral Partner.
G. How Can You Raise a Question about Your Commissions? Referral Partners are responsible for reviewing their compensation and reporting any discrepancies within thirty (30) days of receipt or scheduled receipt of payment. Inquiries must be submitted to email@example.com for consideration; inquiries submitted through other channels will not be considered. After the thirty (30) day “grace period,” no additional requests will be considered for commission recalculations, and ENTRE will not be responsible for any errors, omissions or variances not timely reported to the Company through the appropriate channel. The Company retains sole and exclusive discretion to resolve all payment disputes or inquiries.
H. How Does ENTRE Recover Monies it Has Previously Paid You? You are responsible for reimbursing ENTRE for anything that You are paid, but did not earn, or that You otherwise owe to ENTRE. As the Company is the final arbiter as to any disputed commissions, the Company has the right to withhold or deduct any amounts it deems You to owe from future payments and/or to otherwise claw back or recover funds it previously paid. If You fail to timely reimburse the Company, ENTRE may pursue collection efforts and You agree to pay the Company for its reasonable attorneys’ fees', expenses, and other collection costs to the extent permissible by law.
I. How is the Agreement Modified? You cannot modify the Agreement. The Company may, however, update these Terms from time to time. If it does, Your continued participation in the Program shall be deemed to represent Your consent to the modified Agreement. In the event there is a conflict between the terms of this Agreement and the terms of any other Agreement between You and the Company, You agree that the Company shall have the sole and exclusive discretion and authority to determine which competing term controls.
J. How Can You Voice Your Concerns? ENTRE desires to provide the best products and services possible and values constructive criticism. To ensure comments are reviewed by the appropriate personnel, the Company encourages the submission of written comments via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Due to the Company’s business, ENTRE is uniquely harmed by negative and disparaging comments in public forums and the Company has the right to treat any such statements as a material breach of this Agreement.
K. How Can You Help ENTRE’S Compliance Efforts? ENTRE is actively engaged in ongoing compliance efforts, and as part of those efforts, it encourages Referral Partners to report any violations of these Terms to email@example.com. Referral Partners are responsible for ensuring their own compliance with these TERMS and any and all relevant laws and guidelines.
L. How Does the Company Protect Its Proprietary Information, Trade Secrets, and Intellectual Property?
i. Proprietary Information and Trade Secrets. You agree that information compiled or maintained by ENTRE, including but not limited to customer and sales data, training, methodologies or information that is not otherwise publicly available, constitutes a commercially advantageous, unique and proprietary trade secret of the Company, which it keeps conï¬dential and treats as a trade secret. During the term of your Agreement with ENTRE, the Company grants you a personal, non-exclusive, non-transferable and revocable right to use certain trade secret, conï¬dential, and proprietary business information (“Proprietary Information”) exclusively for the purpose of your marketing and sales efforts under this Agreement, and for no other purpose. You must return and/or immediately destroy any such information upon the termination of this Agreement, including any materials You developed utilizing this information. Under no circumstances may you use the Company’s Proprietary Information for the beneï¬t of any ENTRE competitor. You may not build third-party sites that contain materials copied from Company sources nor create their own website to promote the Company unless expressly authorized by ENTRE in writing.
ii. Intellectual Property. You agree that You will only use Company intellectual property as expressly authorized by the Company for use by its Referral Partners. All promotional and marketing material supplied or created by ENTRE must be used in its original form and cannot be changed, amended or altered except with prior written approval from the Company. The name ENTRE, each of its product and/or service names and other names that have been adopted by the Company in connection with its business are proprietary trade names, trademarks and service marks of ENTRE. As such, these marks are of great value to ENTRE and are supplied to Referral Partners for their use only in an authorized manner. This also applies to testimonials from our clients. As a Referral Partner, You may use a testimonial in Your ENTRE-related marketing only if you have received express written permission from both the Company and the client. Using ENTRE testimonials in the marketing of a competing product or service is unethical and is expressly prohibited. You may not use or attempt to register any of the Company’s trade names, trademarks, service names, service marks, service names, URLs, advertising phrases, the Company’s name or any derivative thereof, for any purpose including, but not limited to, Internet domain names (URL), third party websites, web pages, advertisements or blogs.

Any such effort is deemed null and void.
D. Does the Company Have Any Expectations or Guidelines Regarding Your Efforts to Market and Sell its Products? In addition to the other representations and warranties set forth herein, Referral Partners agree they will not make any representations or claims about ENTRE’s products and services beyond those shown in official Company materials, as published by the Company.

You represent and warrant that You are knowledgeable of the various laws and regulations concerning affiliate marketing and will comply with all limitations.

G. Are there any Geographic Restrictions? Yes. We are constantly looking to expand. At present, You may sell ENTRE products to or from any United States state or territory except Utah (the “Permitted Territory”) and the country of Canada. Efforts to sell products outside of the Permitted Territory are expressly prohibited. ENTRE may add or remove locations from the Permitted Territory at any time.

The arbitrator shall retain the right to resolve all disputes over arbitrability and/or the timeliness of arbitration. The arbitration will be conducted in Clark County, Nevada or as otherwise agreed upon by the Parties. The arbitrator will issue a written opinion setting forth the basis for its decision.
