DBOs can use LIFE TRNDS CBD’s goodwill and LOS Information only for the purposes permitted under the DBO Contract. LIFE TRNDS CBD may disclose limited LOS information only in very limited circumstances and at its discretions and such disclosure does not in any way limit or waive confidentiality or other protections. For example, in assigning DBOs to prospect “orphan” leads (leads organically generated through the site and related materials in which the prospect does not know of or wish to be enrolled under a specific DBO) LIFE TRNDS CBD will by necessity disclose limited contact and identification data.
19.1.1. DBOs acknowledge, and agree not to challenge, that: (i) LOS Information is confidential and a valuable trade secret owned by LIFE TRNDS CBD; (ii) LOS Information is owned exclusively by LIFE TRNDS CBD; and (iii) DBOs do not own any rights in LOS Information. DBOs agree not to challenge or interfere with LIFE TRNDS CBD’s authority to license or sublicense LOS Information. DBOs shall not assert or seek any rights or protection of any kind in LOS Information other than those limited rights or protections that may be specifically granted by these Policies.
19.1.2. A DBO may use LOS Information only with LIFE TRNDS CBD’s prior written permission, which may be expressed through general publication (to all DBOs) or through a specific writing to one or more DBOs. Any permission granted by LIFE TRNDS CBD shall constitute a limited non-exclusive, non-transferable, and revocable license by LIFE TRNDS CBD for a DBO to use LOS Information only as necessary to facilitate his or her DBO as permitted under these Policies. LIFE TRNDS CBD reserves the right to deny or revoke any such license, upon reasonable notice to the DBO stating the reason(s) for such denial or revocation, whenever, in the reasonable opinion of LIFE TRNDS CBD, such is necessary to protect the confidentiality or value of LOS Information.
19.1.3. All DBOs shall maintain LOS Information in strictest confidence, and shall take all reasonable steps and appropriate measures to safeguard LOS Information and maintain the confidentiality thereof. An DBO shall not compile, organize, access, create lists of, or otherwise use or disclose LOS Information except as authorized by LIFE TRNDS CBD. A DBO also shall not disclose LOS Information to any third party, or use LOS Information in connection with any other businesses or to compete, directly or indirectly, with LIFE TRNDS CBD business.
19.1.4. An DBO shall promptly return any and all LOS Information to LIFE TRNDS CBD upon resignation, non-renewal, or termination of DBO’s DBO and shall immediately discontinue any further use thereof.
19.1.5. Every DBO acknowledges that use or disclosure of LOS Information, other than as authorized by LIFE TRNDS CBD, will cause significant and irreparable harm to LIFE TRNDS CBD, warranting an award of injunctive relief, including a temporary restraining order and/or a preliminary injunction, specific performance, and damages including costs, attorneys’ fees, and disgorgement of all profits made as a result of such unauthorized use or disclosure.
19.1.6. An DBO’s obligations under these Policy 6.1 shall survive and remain enforceable following the voluntary or involuntary resignation, nonrenewal, or termination of that DBO’s DBO.
19.2. Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation:
19.2.1. Non-Competition: Every DBO agrees that while DBO’s Contract with LIFE TRNDS CBD is in effect and during the six month period following the resignation, non-renewal, or termination (for any reason) of that DBO, the DBO shall not own, manage, operate, consult for, serve in a Key Position in, or participate as an independent distributor in (a) any other direct sales program using a multilevel or network marketing structure, and (b) any other enterprise that markets, through independent distributors, products or services functionally interchangeable with those offered through or by LIFE TRNDS CBD.
19.2.2. Non-Solicitation: Every DBO agrees that while DBO’s Contract with LIFE TRNDS CBD is in effect and during the six-month period following the resignation, non-renewal, or termination of him or her, he or she will not, on his or her own behalf or on behalf of any person or entity, directly or indirectly, encourage, solicit, or otherwise attempt to recruit or persuade (i) any DBO or (ii) any person who has been an DBO within the past calendar year, to own, manage, operate, consult for, serve in a Key Position in, or participate as an independent distributor in (a) any other direct sales program using a multilevel or network marketing structure, or (b) any other enterprise that markets, through independent distributors, products or services functionally interchangeable with those offered through or by LIFE TRNDS CBD.
19.2.3. The time periods in the above Policies shall be extended by any period of time during which the former DBO is in violation of the applicable Policy.
19.2.4. The geographic scope of these Policies is the Region.

19.2.7. Nothing in these Policies restricts the sale or distribution of privately developed Business Support Materials in accordance with any other Policy herein.
19.2.8. Nothing in these Policies restricts competition between DBOs (a) in the sale of products or services offered through or by LIFE TRNDS CBD or DBOs to Customer-Subscribers or (b) in the registration of new DBOs or Customer-Subscribers.
19.2.9. Each DBO acknowledges that these Policies protect the reasonable competitive business interests of LIFE TRNDS CBD and DBOs, and that a violation of any subsection of these Policies will cause significant and irreparable harm to DBOs and LIFE TRNDS CBD, warranting an award of injunctive relief, including a temporary restraining order and/or a preliminary injunction, specific performance, and damages including costs, attorneys’ fees, and disgorgement of all profits made as a result of such violation.
19.2.10. An DBO’s obligations under these Policies shall survive and remain enforceable following the voluntary or involuntary resignation, nonrenewal, or termination of that DBO’s DBO.
19.3. Other Business Activities: Except as provided in the Policy 8, DBOs may engage in other business ventures, including other selling activities, involving products, services, or business opportunities. However, DBOs may not take advantage of their knowledge of their association with other DBOs who they did not personally register or have a “shared team” role with, including their knowledge resulting from or relating to Line of Enrollment Information, in order to promote and expand such other business ventures.
19.3.1. Each DBO agrees not to solicit, directly or indirectly, other DBOs who the DBO did not personally enroll or have a “shared team” role with in order to sell, offer to sell, or promote other products, services, business opportunities, investments, securities, or loans not offered through or by LIFE TRNDS CBD. Each DBO agrees not to sell, offer to sell, or promote any other business opportunities, products, or services in connection with the Plan. Nothing in these Policies restricts the sale or distribution of Business Support Materials in accordance with these Policies.
19.3.2. Nothing in these Policies restricts, for example, a DBO regularly engaged in the operation of a service station, auto dealership, retail establishment, salon, or a professional service (e.g., law, medicine, dentistry, or accounting) from serving customer-Subscribers who are DBOs and who have sought them out. But an DBO shall not actively solicit the patronage of other DBOs based on knowledge or information gained as a result of being an DBO.
19.4. Approval of Certain DBO Contract Changes: The sale of an ownership interest in an DBO, transferring an DBO, merging DBOs, separating or dividing an DBO, or assignment of any rights or obligations under an DBO Contract require express approval of LIFE TRNDS CBD in writing beyond those with whom they have a “shared team” role. None of the foregoing may be used to manipulate the Line of Enrollment. Sale of a position will not change the enroller status.
19.5. Individual Transfers: An “individual transfer” involves the transfer of an DBO without any downline DBOs. Any DBO who wants to change his or her enroller must submit a written request to LIFE TRNDS CBD accompanied by (1) a written release signed by all the DBOs up-line in the Line of Enrollment, (2) a written acceptance from the new DBO enrollee, and (3) a statement indicating the business reason for the transfer request. Upon LIFE TRNDS CBD’s express approval in writing of the request, the written acceptance from the new enrollee confirms that the new enrollee will incur all responsibilities of the transferring DBO.

Following the lapse of the inactive period, the former DBO may register as a new DBO under a new enroller.

LIFE TRNDS CBD requires that specific terms of sale be included in any sales agreement. Such terms and a sample sales agreement may be obtained from LIFE TRNDS CBD. A DBO may be sold only with the express written approval of LIFE TRNDS CBD.
19.8.1. In order to preserve the Line of Enrollment, the selling DBO must offer his or her DBO in the order of priority stated below, and the DBO(s) interested in purchasing the DBO must meet all of the terms and conditions set forth in these Policies.

21.4. Temporary or Preliminary Injunctive Relief: Nothing in these Policies prevents LIFE TRNDS CBD, a DBO, an Approved Provider or any other one of the parties from seeking temporary or preliminary injunctive or other relief from a court of competent jurisdiction, notwithstanding the parties’ obligation to participate in Conciliation or Arbitration under these Policies.
21.5. Confidentiality: The parties, when involved in the dispute resolution process in any manner, will not disclose to any other person not directly involved in the dispute resolution process: (a) the substance of, or basis for, the dispute; (b) the content of any testimony or other information obtained through the dispute resolution process; or (c) the resolution (whether voluntary or not) of any matter that is subject to the dispute resolution process. However, nothing in these Policies shall preclude any one of the parties from, in good faith, investigating a claim or defense, including interviewing witnesses and otherwise engaging in discovery.

21.7. Dispute Resolution Board: The purpose of the Dispute Resolution Board (“DRB”) is to: (1) review appeals of disciplinary sanctions; and (2) review matters between the Company’s DBOs. After the response or settlement instituted by the Compliance Department has been denied or otherwise remains unresolved, upon written request, the DRB reviews evidence, deliberates, and responds to current outstanding issues on a collective basis.

It is within the DRB’s discretion whether a claim is accepted for review. If the DRB agrees to review the matter, it shall schedule a hearing within ten (10) business days of receipt of the DBO’s written request. All evidence (e.g., documents, exhibits, etc.) that an DBO desires to have considered by the DRB must be submitted to the Company with the written request for a review with the DRB. The DRB will review and reconsider the sanction, consider any other appropriate action, and notify the DBO in writing of its decision. The decision of the DRB will be final and subject to no further review, except as provided in Sections herein below. During the pendency of the claim before the DRB, the DBO waives his or her right to pursue arbitration or any other remedy. The DRB will be made up of a minimum of three mid-to-senior level management of the Company. All Subscribers will be selected by Company.
21.8. Mediation: Prior to instituting any arbitration as provided in Sections herein, the parties shall meet in good faith and attempt to resolve any dispute arising from or relating to the Agreement through non-binding mediation. One individual who is mutually acceptable to the parties shall be appointed as mediator.

21.8.4. All parties who receive notice of the mediation are required to participate. The parties are strongly encouraged to attend the mediation in person, but are not required to do so. Should the parties choose to attend in person, they are responsible for their own expenses. Failure by LIFE TRNDS or any disputing DBO to participate in good faith is a breach of the DBO Contract, and the breaching party shall reimburse the other parties for any expense directly caused by the breach, as determined by the mediator.
21.9. Arbitration: If mediation is unsuccessful, any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to the Agreement, or the breach thereof, shall be settled by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association under its Commercial Arbitration Rules, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. DBOs waive all rights to trial by jury or by any court. All arbitration proceedings shall be held in Leon County, Florida, unless the laws of the state in which a DBO resides expressly require the application of its laws.
21.9.1. The arbitration award shall be final and binding and judgment thereon may be entered by any court of competent jurisdiction. The parties acknowledge that the DBO Contract and each of its parts evidence a transaction involving interstate commerce, and the Federal Arbitration Act shall apply in all cases and govern the interpretation and enforcement of the arbitration Policies and arbitration proceedings.
21.9.2. Class Action Waiver: The parties mutually waive any right to assert any dispute as a class, collective or representative claim or action, or to participate in any dispute asserted as such.
21.9.3. No Class Arbitration: The parties agree that, if the Class Action Waiver is found to be void or unenforceable for any reason, any motion to have the dispute certified as a class action, and any ensuing class action should it be certified, must be heard and disposed of only by a court, and not by an arbitrator; class action claims cannot be submitted to arbitration under these Policies under any circumstances.
21.9.4. Commencement of Arbitration: The complaining party may file a demand for arbitration with the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). The arbitration will be commenced and conducted in accordance with the AAA fee schedules and commercial arbitration Policies and these policies.

21.9.5. Limitations: Demand for arbitration shall be made within two years after the claim arose, but in no event after the date when the initiation of legal proceedings would have been barred by the applicable statute of limitations. The two-year period or any shorter statutory limitations period shall be tolled during the Conciliation process described in these Policies, provided that Conciliation shall not revive any limitations period that has expired before the time a party invokes these Policies.
21.9.6. Single Arbitrator: Unless all parties to the arbitration agree otherwise, a single arbitrator shall be chosen, and Arbitrator candidates must have at least five years’ experience as a state or federal judge or as a full-time ADR professional, including substantial experience in commercial arbitration.
21.9.7. Arbitrability Issues to Be Decided by Arbitrator: The Arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Agreement including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of this Agreement is void or voidable.
21.9.8. Award: The arbitrator’s award shall be limited to deciding the rights and responsibilities of the parties in the specific dispute being arbitrated. The arbitrator’s award shall have no collateral estoppel effect in any other proceeding. The arbitrator shall not provide a statement of reasons for his or her award unless requested to do so by a party.
21.9.9. Consolidation: Similar claims involving multiple parties may be consolidated before a single arbitrator if all parties agree. The arbitrator will decide any disputed consolidation issues.
21.10. Discovery: Notwithstanding any discovery provisions in the AAA commercial arbitration policies incorporated herein above, no discovery shall occur in an arbitration under these Policies unless and until specifically authorized by the arbitrator. The arbitrator shall decide the amount, scope and timing of discovery as appropriate in each case. In addition, before requiring any discovery, the parties involved in the arbitration shall agree on an appropriate confidentiality order that is consistent with the DBO Contract. If they fail to agree, the arbitrator shall impose appropriate confidentiality requirements on the parties and witnesses.
21.11. Governing Law, Jurisdiction and Venue: Jurisdiction and venue of any matter not subject to arbitration shall reside exclusively in Leon County, State of Florida. The Federal Arbitration Act shall govern all matters relating to arbitration. The law of the State of Florida shall govern all other matters relating to or arising from the Agreement.
