Morning Ignition Compliance, Policies & Procedures
SECTION 1 - INTRODUCTION1.1-CORPORATE MISSION STATEMENT
The mission of The Morning Ignition Program is simple and concise: Our aim is to attract superior professionals and talent from around the globe that constantly increases the overall value of our organization. As our value increases, so does the opportunity and the attraction for others. Great people have a compounding effect on our strength as a whole.
The goal of The Morning Ignition Program is to become the most sought after and respected resource for balanced living, wellness, training, products, software, coaching, and financial opportunity in the network marketing industry. Our corporate leadership team is continually working to provide the best experience for our members and associates, including outstanding customer service and support. With The Morning Ignition Program we want every person to achieve the results they desire in their life and to reach their goals in the shortest timeframe possible.
1.2-INDEPENDENT ASSOCIATE CODE OF CONDUCT
All Independent Associates and Members of The Morning Ignition Program agree to abide by the following Independent Associate Code of Conduct.
I will be honest and fair in my dealings
I will perform my business in a manner that will enhance my reputation and the positive reputation established by the direct sales and network marketing industry
I will be courteous and respectful of every person I contact in the course of my Independent Associate activities including executives and employees of The Morning Ignition Program. I agree to not post negative videos, blog posts, status updates, comments or reviews about the The Morning Ignition Program community, company, opportunity, or our independent affiliates; as doing so may result in termination of my account.
I will fulfill my leadership responsibilities as a sponsor including training, supporting and communicating with the Independent associates on my team and in my organization.
I will not misrepresent any Morning Ignition Program products, services, training, or the Compensation Plan. I will not make false income claims or earnings statements.
I will not sponsor or attempt to sponsor any Morning Ignition Program Associate directly or indirectly into any other network marketing program or engage in deceptive or illegal practices. I will not promote other business opportunities or MLMs in the Morning Ignition Program groups, forums, public pages or profiles (otherwise known as cross-recruiting or spam solicitation).
I will remember that even my personal experiences and the benefits received from The Morning Ignition Program products, services or programs, may be interpreted as unauthorized “extension of labeling claims”. I will remember that certain U.S. FTC regulations and good ethics of the Direct Sales Association do not allow exagerated or false income earnings or guarantees; nor do these regulations allow me to promote a “marketing system.”
I understand and agree that I am solely responsible for all financial and/or legal obligations I incur in the course of my business as an Independent Associate and will discharge all debts and duties as required of an Associate. All earnings from the The Morning Ignition Program should be reported to local and federal goverments as earned income for tax purposes.
SECTION 2 – OVERVIEW
2.1-POLICIES AND COMPENSATION PLAN INCORPORATED INTO INDEPENDENT ASSOCIATE AGREEMENT
These Policies and Procedures, in their present form and as amended at the sole discretion of The Morning Ignition Program (hereafter the “Company”), are incorporated into, and form an integral part of, the The Morning Ignition Program Independent Associate Agreement (the “IA Agreement”). Throughout these Policies, when the term “Agreement” is used, it collectively refers to the Independent Associate Application and Customer Agreement, these Policies and Procedures, The Morning Ignition Program and Compensation Plan, and The Morning Ignition Program Business Entity Registration Form (if applicable). These documents are incorporated by reference into the Associate Agreement (all in their current form and as amended by The Morning Ignition Program). It is the responsibility of each Associate to read, understand, adhere to, and ensure that he or she is aware of and operating under the most current version of these Policies and Procedures. When sponsoring or enrolling a new Associate, it is the responsibility of the sponsoring Associate to provide the most current version of these Policies and Procedures and The Morning Ignition Program Marketing and Compensation Plan to the applicant prior to his or her execution of the Associate Agreement.
2.2-PURPOSE OF POLICIES
The Morning Ignition Programis a personal development and affiliate marketing company that markets educational and high-value informational products, software, consulting, coaching, and services through independent Associates. It is important to understand that your success and the success of your fellow Associates are dependent upon the integrity of the men and women who market our products and services. To clearly define the relationship that exists between Associates and The Morning Ignition Program, and to explicitly set a standard for acceptable business conduct, The Morning Ignition Program has established the Agreement. The Morning Ignition Program Associates are required to comply with all of the Terms and Conditions set forth in the Agreement, as well as all federal, state, provincial, territorial, and local laws governing their Morning Ignition Program business and their conduct. Because you may be unfamiliar with many of these standards of practice, it is very important that you read and abide by the Agreement. Please review the information in this Statement of Policies and Procedures carefully. It explains and governs the relationship between you, as an independent contractor and the Company. If you have any questions regarding any policy or rule, do not hesitate to seek an answer from anyone, your Sponsor or from The Morning Ignition Program.
2.3-CHANGES TO THE AGREEMENT
Because federal, state, provincial, territorial and local laws, as well as the business environment, periodically change, The Morning Ignition Program reserves the right to amend the Agreement and its prices for products and services in its sole and absolute discretion. By signing the Associate Agreement, an Associate agrees to abide by all amendments or modifications that The Morning Ignition Program elects to make. Amendments shall be effective upon notice to all Associates that the Agreement has been modified.
Notification of amendments shall be published in official The Morning Ignition Program Materials. The Company shall provide or make available to all Associates a complete copy of the amended provisions by one or more of the following methods: (1) posting on the Company’s official website; (2) electronic mail (e-mail); (3) fax-on-demand; (4) voice mail system broadcast; (5) inclusion in Company periodicals; (6) inclusion in product orders or bonus checks; or (7) special mailings. The continuation of an Associate’s Morning Ignition Program business or an Associate’s acceptance of bonuses or commissions constitutes acceptance of any and all amendments.
The Morning Ignition Program shall not be responsible for delays or 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, death, Acts of God, curtailment of a party’s source of supply, or government decrees or orders.
2.5-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.
The Company never gives up its right to insist on compliance with the Agreement and with the applicable laws governing the conduct of a business. No failure of The Morning Ignition Program to exercise any right or power under the Agreement or to insist upon strict compliance by an Associate 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 Morning Ignition Program’s right to demand exact compliance with the Agreement. Waiver by The Morning Ignition Program can be affected only in writing by an authorized officer of the Company. The Morning Ignition Program’s waiver of any particular breach by an Associate shall not affect or impair The Morning Ignition Program’s rights with respect to any subsequent breach, nor shall it affect in any way the rights or obligations of any other Associate. Nor shall any delay or omission by The Morning Ignition Program to exercise any right arising from a breach affect or impair The Morning Ignition Program’s rights as to that or any subsequent breach.
The existence of any claim or cause of action of an Associate against The Morning Ignition Program shall not constitute a defense to The Morning Ignition Program’s enforcement of any term or provision of the Agreement.
