Network Governance: Advisory Councils (ACs) associated with the Company and consisting of designated Advocates and officers of the Company will provide advice and assist in promulgating and administering the NetLeaders Rules and Regulations.

2.0 - Operating an Advocate account
It is your duty to ensure that accurate information is provided on setting up of your account and to keep the information updated to reflect any change to your personal information / status.

If bonuses and commissions do not equal or exceed S$25.00, the Company will accrue the commissions and bonuses until they total S$25.00. Commissions will be issued once S$25.00 has been accrued via check, paycard or direct deposit.
2.2 - Commission Payments and Promotions
Commissions will be wired out or credited out in accordance with the Compensation Plan.

2.5 - Change of Sponsor
To protect the integrity of all marketing organizations and to safeguard the hard work of all Advocates, NetLeaders does not allow changes in sponsorship for active Advocates.

Accordingly, the transfer of a NetLeaders business from one sponsor to another is not permitted with the exceptions that are noted below.
If a prohibited shift of sponsor has occurred, the Company reserves the right to reinstate the previous positions before the shift has taken place, as well as institute any disciplinary action as decided upon by the AC.
- A request to change sponsor, due to a NetLeaders error, will be accepted within 30 days of the submission of the original Application and Agreement.
- An Advocate may legitimately change his or her Sponsor by reapplying to the Company after their account has been determined by the Company to be deactivated as per Clause 2.6. Upon Deactivation, the Advocate will permanently lose any and all rights to their former Downline organization. “Downline “shall mean the organization of Independent Advocates and Licensees that were enrolled and placed under any Advocate’s business.
2.6 - Deactivation of account
An Advocate may suspend his or her NetLeaders Agreement by informing the Company of their wish to do so with a 30 days’ written notice of suspension AND by ceasing immediately all Advocate activities relating to the account for a period of at least 6 months following the written notice. Inactivity shall mean: no sales of NetLeaders products; no sponsoring; and no operation of any NetLeaders business for 6 full calendar months. If the Advocate meets the 6 month test following the notice suspension of his or her account then the Company at its discretion shall deem the account to be dormant and deactivated.
Note: a dormant account with no activity shall not be deemed deactivated unless the written request is received by the Company prior to the commencement of the 6 month period.
2.7 - Transfer of License or Advocate business
Any request for a transfer of a License or an Advocate business to another party must be made in writing and addressed to the Company (Compliance Department) which will consider the request.
The selling party must offer NetLeaders the right of first refusal to purchase the business on the same terms as agreed upon with a third-party buyer. NetLeaders shall have fifteen (15) days from the date of receipt of the written offer from the seller to exercise its right of first refusal.
Only after an approval has been obtained and a “no exercise” decision relating to the first refusal right is reached and advised by the Company may a valid transfer take effect. Attempted transfers without approval shall be ignored and the transferee might be sanctioned. An administrative handling fee of 100 Euros shall apply to any approved transfer, but the Company, at its sole discretion may waive the fee in exceptional circumstances.
Under no circumstance shall a transfer of a License or an Advocate business to another party, whether approved or not, result in a change in either their Sponsor or Downline, in other words, their position in the placement tree shall remain the same.
Note: the Transferee will have to agree in writing to abide by all the rules, Agreements, commitments etc. undertaken by the transferee before any approval to transfer is granted.
2.8 - Transfer upon demise of a Licensee or Advocate
- Transfer upon death of Individuals - Upon demise of a member, the License, Advocate’s business, commissions and the Network Tree, as applicable, will be transferred to his / her heirs or beneficiaries whether by will, intestate succession, or otherwise.

The Company shall promulgate rules relating to the protocol to be followed in the case of a death of a member to include receipt of notice of death, presentation of legal documents, appointing a single beneficiaries’ representative to represent the estate and the placement of the account on hold until the Company is satisfied that proper arrangements have been made to its satisfaction to relieve it from any liabilities, claims, costs, damages, judgements or expenses incurred.
- No transfer upon death of a primary contact person of a Business entity - The business entity shall continue to be the license holder or Advocate business and it must nominate as soon as possible another primary contact if the demised party was the primary contact for the entity. A change of primary contact must be made by a Board Resolution of the entity and presented to the Company. The Company shall continue to issue payment / bonuses to the entity.
- If a member dies leaving more than one beneficiary, the Company shall not divide the payments, bonuses or cycles of a Licensee or Advocate. Rather, any arrangement to carry out allocation to beneficiaries will have to be made separately by the beneficiaries themselves and they must appoint a representative to represent their joint account. If any exception is made, it will be at the discretion of the Company but the beneficiaries will have to agree in a legally binding document to hold the Company harmless against any and all losses, liabilities, claims, costs, damages, judgements or expenses incurred.
Licensees and Advocates are encouraged to make appropriate arrangements in consultation with an estate planning attorney for the transfer of their License or Advocate business upon demise.
2.9 - Divorce

Rather, payments and minting shall be made only to the registered owner on the account. If any exception is made, it will be at the discretion of the Company and the spouses agree to hold the Company harmless against any and all losses, liabilities, claims, costs, damages, judgements or expenses incurred.
2.10 - Refunds
License Fees are non-refundable starting the 60th day after registration (the “cooling off period”); however, if upon registration you were not a legal resident or citizen of Singapore, the rules and cooling off period applicable to a refund to you will be determined by the laws of your state of residence, in which case, the shorter of the cooling off periods (Singapore / your country of residence) will apply. All refunds are subject to a 10% administrative fee. Payment back to you will be in the same payment method made by you (value of coins used will be based on the time stamp when received).
If you enrolled as an Advocate, your refund will be further reduced by the commissions, if any, paid to you from your downline, and the commissions, if any, paid on your license to your sponsor. Further, if you activated your license by trading or converting cycles, you can either sell the license during the refund period or turn over your private key to the company before any refunds can be issued to you.
Please apply for a refund no later than the last day of the applicable cooling off time in your country of residence by sending an email to [email protected] with a copy to [email protected]. The request must be in English and specify your license and member ID, your country of residence, the reason for your request of a refund and a reference to the law in your jurisdiction specifying the cooling off period. Requests without the applicable citation of the relevant cooling off period will not be denied but returned to you for completion.
A review of your request will take about 14 days to complete unless we have reasons to suspect that it is a fraudulent request. You will be provided a proper opportunity to state your case.
2.11 - Termination
Licensees or Advocates may terminate their accounts by sending a written advice to the Company 60 days in advance of the effective date of termination. During this period, the Company shall allow them to deplete the outstanding pay outs, cycles, gift codes in their account.

An Advocate whose business is terminated will lose all rights as an Advocate. This includes the right to sell NetLeaders Products and Services and the right to receive future commissions, bonuses or other income resulting from the sales and other activities of the former Downline sales organization. In the event of termination, Advocates agree to waive all rights they may have, including but not limited to property rights, to their former Downline organization and to any bonuses, commissions or other remuneration derived from the sales and other activities of his or her former Downline organization.
Following termination, the former Advocate shall not hold himself or herself out as a NetLeaders Independent Advocate. Any individual terminated shall receive commissions and bonuses only for the last full pay period he or she was active prior to cancellation/termination (less any amounts withheld during an investigation preceding an involuntary termination).
Finally, the Company shall not refund any amount outstanding in the account after the effective date of termination and will not reinstate the account after termination.
