4. Makeup Eraser Compensation Plan
All commissions due to Ambassador shall be paid out pursuant to compensation plan outlined below.
In an effort to alleviate administrative burdens, Makeup Eraser reserves the right to postpone commission payments until such time the cumulative amount exceeds $40 at the sole discretion of Makeup Eraser.
A Makeup Eraser Ambassador must review his or her monthly statement and report any discrepancies within 30 days of receipt. After the 30 day “grace period” no additional requests will be considered for commission’s recalculation.
Errors or Questions
If an Ambassador has questions about or believes any errors have been made regarding payments, or charges, the Ambassador must notify Makeup Eraser in writing within 30 days of the date of the purported error or incident in question. Makeup Eraser will not be responsible for any errors, omissions, or problems not reported to the Company within 30 days.
5. The term of the Company IR agreement is one year. Company IRs, who wish to continue their IR positions, must apply to renew their IR agreement annually. The Company reserves the right to accept or reject your application for renewal and the renewal shall be deemed accepted if it has not been rejected in writing by the Company within 30 days of receipt of the renewal fee (if applicable) and application agreement.

Upon notification of cancellation or termination, the Company will repurchase IR purchased inventory and mandatory sales kit materials, if any, in accordance with its policies as stated in the Company's marketing program and statement of policy.

No termination of this Agreement will relieve either party for any liability for any breach of, or liability accruing under, this Agreement prior to termination.
7. Upon acceptance of this application by the Company, I will be an independent contractor responsible for my own business and not an employee of the Company. I will not be treated as an employee in regard to any laws covering employees, including but not limited to the Federal Insurance Contributions Act, the Social Security Act, the Federal Unemployment Tax Act, income tax withholding at source or for any federal or state tax laws. It is my responsibility to pay self-employment, state and federal income taxes as required by law. The Makeup Eraser Ambassador is an independent contractor, and not a purchaser of a franchise or business opportunity. Therefore, each Ambassador’s success depends on his or her independent efforts. The agreement between Makeup Eraser and its Ambassadors does not create an employer/employee relationship, agency, partnership, or joint venture between Makeup Eraser and the Ambassador. All Ambassadors are responsible for paying local, state, provincial, and Federal taxes due from all compensation earned as a Ambassador of Makeup Eraser. Ambassadors have no express or implied authority to bind Makeup Eraser to any obligation or to make any commitments by or on behalf of Makeup Eraser. As a self-employed independent contractor, you will be operating your own independent business selling products available through Makeup Eraser on your own account. You have complete freedom in determining the number of hours that you will devote to your business, and you have the sole discretion of scheduling such hours. In the event you earn over $600 in a calendar year, you will receive IRS Form 1099- MISC reflecting the amount of income paid to you during the calendar year. It will be your sole responsibility to account for such income on your individual income tax returns. In an effort to comply with state sales tax laws, Makeup Eraser may require each Ambassador to provide a Sales and Use Tax Resale Certificate from their respective state. The certificate is required by law in order for resellers to purchase inventory without paying sales tax. This must be completed prior to any orders being shipped if required by Makeup Eraser. In the event Sales tax is charged to Ambassador for wholesale/bulk orders it will be charged on the retail sales price of the units purchased. In addition, it will be charged according to the state and local municipality in which Ambassador communicates to Makeup Eraser they intend on selling the Makeup Eraser product or the Ambassador will be charged the appropriate sales tax based on the location in which the product is being shipped. If Ambassador is charged sales tax for a different state/municipality in which they sell the makeup eraser products it is the Ambassador’s responsibility to clearly communicate that information to makeup eraser via electronic messaging with confirmed receipt of delivery. Ambassador must maintain receipts of all transactions with customers and send all receipts to Makeup Eraser no later than 5 business days from transaction.
8. I will not use the Company's trade name and/or trademark except in the advertising provided to me by the Company or in other advertising without prior written approval by the Company. You agree to make no representations or claims about any product or services beyond those shown in official Makeup Eraser literature. In particular, no Ambassadors may make claims that Makeup Eraser products are useful in the cure, treatment, diagnosis, mitigation or prevention of any skin related diseases. Such statements can be perceived as medical or drug claims. Under no circumstances may you print your own labels or repackage Makeup Eraser’s products. Products are to be sold in their original packaging only. Subject to the limitations set forth in this provision, the Company shall defend Ambassadors from claims made by third-party customers alleging injury from use of a product or injury due to a defective product.
9. Any IR, who sponsors resellers, must fulfill the obligation of performing a bona fide supervisory, distributing and selling function in the sale or delivery of product to the ultimate consumer and in the training of those sponsored. IR must have ongoing contact, communication and management supervision with his or her resellers accounts. Examples of such supervision may include, but are not limited to: newsletters, written correspondence, personal meetings, telephone contact, voice mail, electronic mail, training sessions, accompanying individuals to Company training and sharing genealogy information with those sponsored. IRs should be able to provide evidence to the Company semiannually of ongoing fulfillment of sponsor responsibilities. If an IR markets to resellers that company referred to IR, then the IR is obligated to the same responsibilities of supervisory, communication and training activities with respect to IRs he or she has signed up.
10. The Company's program is built upon retail sales to the ultimate consumer. The Company also recognizes that IRs may wish to also purchase product or service for their own personal or family use. The IR, however, will not receive credit for bonus purposes, qualification or advancement for his or her own personal purchases. IRs must fulfill published personal and downline retail sales requirements, including requisite retail sales to nonparticipants, as well as supervisory responsibilities, to qualify for certain bonuses, overrides or advancements. The Makeup Eraser Compensation Plan is based upon the sale of Makeup Eraser products and services to end consumers.
11. The IR acknowledges that IR is a wholly independent marketing representative who establishes and services retail customers for Company products as an independent contractor. The position of IR does not constitute either a sale of a franchise or a Ambassadorship, and absolutely no fees have been or will be required from the IR for the right to distribute the Company's products pursuant to this agreement. This agreement is not intended and shall not be construed to create a relationship of employer employee, agency, partnership, or joint venture between any IR, sponsor and/or the Company.
a. As an independent contractor, the IR shall:
i. Abide by any and all federal, state, county and local laws, rules and regulations pertaining to this agreement and/or the acquisition, receipt, holding, selling, distributing or advertising of Company products.
ii. At the IR's own expense, make, execute or file all such reports and obtain such licenses as are required by law or public authority with respect to this agreement and/or the receipt, holding, selling, distributing or advertising of Company products.
iii. Be solely responsible for declaration and payment of all local, state and federal taxes as may accrue because of the IR's activities in connection with this agreement.
12. No purchase or investment is necessary to become a Company IR.
14. Returned Product:
Ambassadors receive bonuses and commissions based on the actual sales of products and services to end consumers. When a product is returned to Makeup Eraser for a refund or is repurchased by the Company, either of the following may occur at the Company’s discretion: (1) the bonuses and commissions attributable to the returned or repurchased product(s) will be deducted from the pay period in which the refund is given, and continuing every pay period thereafter until the commission is recovered, from the Ambassadors who received bonuses and commissions on the sales of the refunded products or (2) the Ambassadors who earned commissions based on the sale of the returned products will have the corresponding points deducted from their volume in the next pay period and all subsequent pay periods until it is completely recovered.
15. Product Guarantee
If a customer is unsatisfied with any Makeup Eraser product purchased for personal use, the customer may return any resalable product within thirty (30) days from the date of purchase for a one-hundred percent (100%) refund (less shipping charges). This refund policy only applies to initial orders. Subsequent orders by customers are final and nonrefundable. Ambassadors are subject to the Ambassador return policy, covered below in the “Return of Inventory” policy.
16. Ordering & Shipping
Distribution of Makeup Eraser products (not IR rights) is available in many countries at the current time.
17. Pay Period
Ambassadors will receive commissions once per month, on the 20th of every month, for sales referred by Ambassador the previous month.
18. Return of Inventory and Sales Aids by Ambassadors
Upon cancellation of a Ambassador’s Agreement, the Ambassador may return inventory and sales aids purchased within one (1) year from the date of cancellation for a refund if he or she is unable to sell or use the merchandise. The max value for any return cannot exceed $5,000. Returns of this amount will result in immediate termination of the agreement. When Ambassadors place bulk orders in excess of $5,000, they assume the risk of being stuck with unsellable and non-refundable inventory. A Ambassador may only return products and sales aids he or she personally purchased from the Company under his or her Ambassador Identification Number, and which are in Resalable condition. Upon receipt of the products and sales aids, the Ambassador will be reimbursed ninety percent (90%) of the net cost of the original purchase price(s), less shipping charges. If the purchases were made through a credit card, the refund will be credited back to the same account. The Company shall deduct from the reimbursement paid to the Ambassador any commissions, bonuses, rebates or other incentives received by the Ambassador, which were associated with the merchandise that is returned.

You recognize and agree that information compiled by or maintained by Makeup Eraser, including the database of prospective and existing customers, constitutes a commercially advantageous, unique and proprietary trade secret of Makeup Eraser, which it keeps confidential and treats as a trade secret.
