OUR COMMITMENT TO PRIVACY
THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
When you visit our website, we collect two types of information: personal information you actively choose to disclose (“Active Information”) and information not visible to you that arises out of your browsing of our Site (“Passive Information”). Please note that Passive Information is collected on an aggregate and anonymous basis.
1. Personally Identifiable Information
Personally, Identifiable Information (“PII”) is information that identifies and is reasonably linked to you.
When you register to become an authorized reseller of our products or services, we will collect PII (which may include, but not limited to, names, address, email address, and telephone numbers). This PII is securely stored and may be accessed on our website. You are assigned an identification number and select your own password – both are needed to enter the Site and to access your Contact Information. Please safeguard your password in a secure location as we are not responsible for breaches into the system when access is willingly provided.
When you place an order for products or services, we collect PII (e.g., name, contact and billing information, credit card, and other transactional information). We use this information to deliver your order, process payment, and to communicate the status of your order.
C. Credit and Debit Card Storage
Credit and debit card information collected at registration or for product orders is used only to process payment for the transaction and, generally, is not retained on our webiste. However, you may voluntarily elect to securely store multiple credit cards to be used for product orders.
D. Surveys and Promotions
Occasionally, you may voluntarily provide PII to complete surveys and questionnaires or to participate in user polls. We use this information to improve our products and services and to ensure that we’re providing accurate disclosures. We may also use your PII to provide you newsletters and other marketing information that coincide with your preferences. You may customize your marketing preferences or let us know if you do not wish to receive any promotional materials, by adjusting your Subscriptions & Email options on the website.
Active Information You Choose to Provide
In order to gain use of the website (become a “user”), we require you to disclose the following information: Name, Address and Phone Number
We use secure socket layer (SSL) encryption to protect the transmission of the information you submit to us when you use our secure online forms. The information you provide to us is stored securely.
2. Passive Information
We store and collect various types of passive information on an aggregate and anonymous basis. This information may include such technical information as it pertains to your Internet protocol address, your device operating system and browser type, cookies, and an address of a referring website or any other path you take to reach our website all described in greater detail below.

We may collect, compile, store, publish, promote, report, or otherwise disclose or use any Aggregate Information, provided that such information does not personally identify you. We do not correlate any PII with the Aggregate Information that we collect on our website. If we do correlate any Aggregate Information to you, it will be protected like any other PII under this Privacy Statement.

2.0 BASIC PRINCIPLES
2.1 Becoming a Beauty Influencer

all working towards the common goal of achieving emotional, personal, and financial success. To become a Beauty Influencer, you must comply with the following requirements:

- You can submit your Beauty Influencer Agreement through mail or the Farmasi website (http://www.farmasius.com). The application must be received within five (5) business days of your enrollment for you to receive Beauty Influencer benefits. If the Beauty Influencer Agreement is not received within five (5) business days, your Beauty Influencer account will remain on temporary hold until We receive the Agreement.
C. Farmasi reserves the right to require signed paperwork for any account, regardless of origin.
- Signed documents, including, but not limited to Beauty Influencer Agreements, are legally binding contracts that must not be altered, tampered with, or changed in any manner after execution. False or misleading information, forged signatures, or alterations to any document, including business registration forms, made after a document has been executed may lead to sanctions, up to and including the involuntary termination of a Beauty Influencer’s Farmasi business.
2.3 Rights Granted
Farmasi hereby grants to you as a Beauty Influencer the non-exclusive right, based upon the terms and conditions contained in the Beauty Influencer Agreement and these Policies and Procedures, to the following:
- The ability to purchase, sell and promote Farmasi products and services.
- Sponsor new Beauty Influencers and Customers in the United States, Canada, or Mexico building a sales organization and earning commissions of the personal and downline sales of Farmasi products.
2.4 Identification Numbers
- Each Beauty Influencer is required to provide his or her Social Security Number, or Federal Tax Identification Number, if located in the United States or any of its territories, to the Company on the Beauty Influencer Agreement. Those who do not provide a Social Security Number or Federal Tax Identification Number will have a deduction of 24% from their commission removed until one is provided. We reserve the right to withhold commission payments from any Beauty Influencer who fails to provide such information or who provides false information.
- Upon enrollment, we will provide you with a Farmasi Identification Number. This number will be used to place orders, structure organizations, and track commissions and bonuses.
2.5 Business Entities
- A corporation, partnership, LLC, or trust (collectively referred to as a “Business Entity”) may apply to be a Beauty Influencer. This Farmasi business and position will remain temporary until the submission of proper Business Entity documents. As examples of proper documents, we expect a Business Entity application to submit some of the following: Certificate of Incorporation, Articles of Organization, Partnership Agreement, or appropriate Trust documents. We must receive these documents within five (5) business days from the execution date of the Beauty Influencer Agreement.
- A Beauty Influencer may change his or her status under the same Sponsor from an individual to a Business Entity so long as he or she complies with Section 2.5(A).
2.6 Independent Business Relationship; Indemnification for Actions
- As a Beauty Influencer, you are an independent contractor and not a purchaser of a franchise or business opportunity. As a result, each Beauty Influencer’s success depends entirely upon his, or her or their independent efforts.
- The Agreement between you and Us does not create an employer/employee relationship, agency, partnership, or joint venture.
- A Beauty Influencer shall not be treated as an employee of Farmasi for any purposes, including, without limitation, federal or state tax purposes. You are responsible for paying local, state, and federal taxes due from all compensation earned as a Beauty Influencer. Any other compensation received by Beauty Influencers from the Company will be governed by applicable U.S. tax laws (or the tax laws of any other applicable jurisdiction). You as a Beauty Influencer have no express or implied authority to bind Farmasi to any obligation or to make any commitments by or on behalf of the Company. Each Beauty Influencer, whether acting as management of a Business Entity or represented as an individual, shall establish goals, hours, and methods of operation and sale, so long as in compliance with the terms of the Beauty Influencer Agreement, these Policies and Procedures and applicable state and federal laws.
- You are fully responsible for all your verbal and written communications made regarding Farmasi products, services, and the Compensation Plan that are not expressly contained within official Company materials. Beauty Influencers shall indemnify and hold harmless Farmasi, its directors, officers, employees, product suppliers and agents from any and against all liability including judgments, civil penalties, refunds, attorney fees and court costs incurred by Farmasi as a result of a Beauty Influencer’s unauthorized representations or actions. This provision shall survive the termination of the Beauty Influencer Agreement.
2.7 Errors or Questions
If a Beauty Influencer has questions about or believes any errors have been made regarding commissions, bonuses, business reports, orders, or charges, the Company requires any inquiries by submitting a ticket through your Farmasi Back Office within thirty (30) days of the date of the error or incident in question. Any such errors, omissions, or problems not reported within this thirty-day timeframe days is expressly waived by Beauty Influencer.
3.0 RESPONSIBILITIES OF A FARMASI BEAUTY INFLUENCER
3.1 Correct Addresses
- It is the responsibility of any Customer/Beauty Influencer to ensure the Company has the correct shipping address before the shipment of any orders.
- For any notice of address change sent to the Company, a Customer/ Beauty Influencer will need to allow up to thirty (30) days for processing.
3.2 Training and Leadership
- Any Beauty Influencer who sponsors another Beauty Influencer into Farmasi must perform an authentic assistance and training function to ensure those made up of their downline organizations operate their business by these Policies and Procedures. Sponsoring Beauty Influencers should have ongoing contact and communication with those in their downline organizations. Examples of communication may include but are not limited to, newsletters, written correspondence, telephone, contact, team calls, voice-mail, e-mail, personal meetings, accompaniment of downline Beauty Influencer(s) to Company meetings, training sessions, webinars, and any other related functions.
- Sponsors may strategically place newly enrolled Beauty Influencers anywhere in their organization up to the 4th generation during the new Beauty Influencer's first 30 days of enrollment. To make a placement change you must complete a Placement Change Form and submit it to the company. The Placement Change Form requires three signatures, the signature of the new Beauty Influencer, the signature of the new Sponsor, and the signature of the current Sponsor making the request. If a Placement Change Form is received after a commissionable period, any orders made by a new Beauty Influencer will not be moved under the new Sponsor. Strategic placement will also apply to the Beauty Influencers who rolled up due to the resignation/termination of a frontline.
- Farmasi may take appropriate action against a Beauty Influencer if it determines, in its sole discretion that, a Beauty Influencer neglects to train and assist their downline organization. Appropriate action may include, but is not limited to, sponsorship change of the neglected downline members along with their respective downlines up to termination of their Beauty Influencer agreement and account.
- A Sponsoring Beauty Influencer should monitor the Beauty Influencer(s) in his or her downline organizations to ensure that downline Beauty Influencer(s) do not make improper product or business claims or engage in any illegal or inappropriate conduct. Upon request, a Beauty Influencer should be able to provide documented evidence to the Company of his or her ongoing fulfillment of sponsor responsibilities.
- Upline Beauty Influencers are encouraged to motivate and train new Beauty Influencer(s) about Company products and services, effective sales techniques, the Company Compensation Plan, and compliance with these Policies and Procedures.
- The marketing and sale of products is a required activity in Farmasi and must be emphasized in all recruiting presentations. Moreover, we prioritize all Beauty Influencers to sell Farmasi products and services to Customers first and prospective and current Beauty Influencers second.
- Use of Sales Aids. The creation of Farmasi sales tools is limited to 6% and above. These Beauty Influencers must submit all written sales aids, promotional materials, advertisements, websites, and other literature to the Company for approval before use. Unless the Beauty Influencer receives specific written approval to use the material, the request shall be deemed denied. All Beauty Influencers shall safeguard and promote the good reputation of Farmasi and its products. Once approved, Company reserves the right to incorporate the approved training material in its promotional efforts.
It is Our goal to provide you with a combination of exceptional products and a rewarding Compensation Plan. Accordingly, we value constructive criticism and encourage the submission of written comments addressed to the Company’s Compliance Department so long as such comments come by way respectfully and productively. Negative and disparaging comments by Beauty Influencers made to others about the Company, its products or Compensation Plan, or disruptive behavior at Company meetings or events, serve no purpose other than to dampen the enthusiasm of all those who participate in the Farmasi business. Beauty Influencers must not belittle the Company, other Beauty Influencers, the Company products or services, the Compensation Plan, or Company directors, officers, or employees, product suppliers, or agents. Such conduct represents a material breach of these Policies and Procedures and may be subject to sanctions as the Company sees fit.
- Beauty Influencers must show fairness, tolerance, and respect to all people associated with Farmasi and Farmasi sales opportunities regardless of race, gender, social class, or religion.
- Beauty Influencers must contribute to and foster an atmosphere of positivity, teamwork, good morale, and community spirit.
- Beauty Influencers shall strive to resolve business issues, including situations with upline and downline members through tact, sensitivity, and goodwill.
- Beauty Influencers must be honest, responsible, professional and conduct themselves with integrity.
- Beauty Influencers shall never disparage the Company, other Beauty Influencers, Company employees, product suppliers or agents, products, services, sales, and marketing campaigns, or the Compensation Plan, or make statements that unreasonably offend, mislead, or coerce others.
Farmasi may take appropriate action against a Beauty Influencer if it determines, in its sole discretion, that the Beauty Influencer’s conduct is detrimental, disruptive, or injurious to the Company, other Beauty Influencers, or Farmasi Customers.
3.4 Reporting Policy Violation
A Beauty Influencer who observes a policy violation by another Beauty Influencer should submit a written and signed letter (e-mail will not be accepted) of the violation directly to the Company Compliance Department. The letter shall set forth the details of the incident as follows:
- The nature of the violation and specific facts to support the allegation;
- Number of occurrences and dates;
- The Persons involved; and
- Any other supporting documentation
Upon presentation to the Company Compliance Department, we will research the incident in question and take appropriate action if necessary. This section refers to the general reporting of policy violations as observed by other Beauty Influencers for the mutual effort to support, protect, and defend the integrity of the Farmasi business and sales opportunity. If a Beauty Influencer has a grievance or complaint against another Beauty Influencer which directly relates to his, or her, or its Farmasi business, the procedures outlined in these Policies must be followed.
- The Sponsor is the person who introduces a person, whether a Customer or a Beauty Influencer, to the Farmasi business and helps them complete their enrollment, supports those in their downline, and continues to provide training and assistance for all those in their downline.
- The Company recognizes the Sponsor as the name(s) shown on the first:
- Physically signed Beauty Influencer Agreement on file; or
- Electronically signed Beauty Influencer Agreement from either the Company’s website or a Beauty Influencer’s replicated website.
- A Beauty Influencer Agreement that contains notations such as “by phone” or the signatures of other individuals (i.e. Sponsors, Spouses, relatives, or friends) is not valid and will not be accepted by the Company.
- We recognize that each new prospect has the right to ultimately choose his or her Sponsor, but We will not allow Beauty Influencers to engage in unethical sponsoring activities.
- All active Beauty Influencers in good standing have the right to sponsor and enroll others into the Farmasi business. While engaged in sponsoring activities, it is not uncommon to encounter situations when more than one Beauty Influencer will approach the same prospect. It is the accepted courtesy that the new prospect will be sponsored by the first Beauty Influencer who presented a comprehensive introduction to the Company’s products or opportunity.
3.6 Cross Sponsoring Prohibition
- “Cross sponsoring” is defined as the enrollment of an individual or Business entity into a different line of sponsorship who has already signed a Beauty Influencer Agreement. Actual or attempted cross-sponsoring is not allowed. If cross-sponsoring is verified by the Company, sanctions up to and including termination of a Beauty Influencer’s business may be imposed.
- The use of a Spouse’s or relative’s name, trade names, assumed names, DBA names, corporation, partnership, trust, Federal ID numbers, or fictitious ID numbers to evade or circumvent this policy is strictly prohibited.
- This policy does not prohibit the transfer of a Farmasi business by the Sale or Transfer policy set forth herein.
- A Beauty Influencer must adhere to the terms of the Company Compensation Plan. Any deviation from the Compensation Plan is strictly prohibited.
- A Beauty Influencer shall not offer the Farmasi opportunity through, or in combination with, any other system, program, or method of marketing other than that specifically outlined in official Company materials.
- A Beauty Influencer shall not require or encourage a current or prospective Customer/ Beauty Influencer to participate in the Farmasi business in any manner that varies from the Compensation Plan or other Company materials.
- Other than such purchases or payments required to naturally build their business, a Beauty Influencer
shall not require or encourage a current or prospective Customer/ Beauty Influencer to make a purchase from or payment to any individual or other entity as a condition of participating in the Company Compensation Plan.
3.8 Adherence to Laws and Ordinances
Many cities and counties have laws regulating certain home-based businesses. In most cases, these ordinances do not apply to Beauty Influencers because of the nature of the business. However, Beauty Influencers must check their local laws and obey the laws that do apply to them. A Beauty Influencer shall comply with all federal, state, and local laws and regulations in their independent conducting of Farmasi business.
3.9 Compliance with Applicable Income Tax Laws
- Farmasi will automatically provide a complete Tax form (nonemployee compensation) to each United States (USD 600), Canada (CAD 500) Beauty Influencer whose earnings for the year are at least USD 600 or CAD 500 or who has purchased more than $5,000 of Farmasi products for resale, or who received trips, prizes or awards valued at $600 or more.
- A Beauty Influencer accepts sole responsibility for and agrees to pay all federal, state, and local taxes on any income generated as an independent business owner, and further agrees to indemnify Farmasi from any failure to pay such tax amounts when due.
- If a Beauty Influencer’s business is tax exempt, the Federal Tax Identification Number must be provided to the Company in writing.
- Farmasi encourages all Beauty Influencers to consult with a tax advisor for additional information for their business.
3.10 One Farmasi Business Per Person
A Beauty Influencer may operate or have an ownership interest, whether legal or equitable, as a sole proprietorship, partner, shareholder, trustee, or beneficiary, in only one Farmasi business. No individual may have, operate, or receive compensation from more than one Farmasi business. If each subsequent family position is placed within the first enrolled family member’s frontline, individuals in the same family unit may each enter or have an interest in their separate Farmasi businesses. A “family unit” is defined as spouses and dependent children living or conducting business at the same address. Note: Children of legal age to contract and at least 18 years of age are not considered a part of their parent's household.
3.11 Actions of Household Members or Affiliated Parties
If any member of your immediate household engages in any activity which, if performed by you, would violate any provision of the Agreement, such activity will be deemed a violation by you. As a result, the Company may take disciplinary action under these Policies and Procedures against you. Similarly, if any individual associated in any way with a corporation, partnership, LLC, trust, or other entity (collectively “Business Entity”) violates the Agreement, such action(s) will be deemed a violation by the Business Entity, and the Company may take disciplinary action against the Business Entity. Likewise, if a Beauty Influencer enrolls in Farmasi as a Business Entity, each affiliated party of the Business Entity shall be personally and individually bound to, and must comply with, the terms and conditions of the Agreement.
- A Beauty Influencer may participate in other direct sales, multilevel, network marketing, or relationship marketing business ventures or marketing opportunities (collectively “Network Marketing”). However, during the Term of this Agreement and for one (1) year thereafter, you may not recruit any other Farmasi Customer or Beauty Influencer for any other Network Marketing business, unless said Customer or Beauty Influencer was personally sponsored by you.
- The term “recruit” means actual or attempted solicitation, enrollment, encouragement, or effort to influence in any other way (either directly or through a third party), another Customer, or Beauty Influencer to enroll or participate in any Network Marketing opportunity. This conduct represents recruiting even if the Beauty Influencer’s actions are in response to an inquiry made by another Customer or Beauty Influencer.
- However, you may sell non-competing products or services to Farmasi Customers and Beauty Influencers. Specifically, a non-competing company is defined as a Network Marketing company that does NOT sell cosmetic personal care products, home care, nutrition products, or any products FARMASI may offer in the future.
- Due to the visibility of our higher-ranking Beauty Influencers, Farmasi Beauty Influencers who achieve the rank of Golden Manager or above agree not to participate in any Network Marketing or party plan company, regardless of if the company sells competing products or not. This restriction applies even if the Beauty Influencer has fallen out of the Golden Manager qualification.
- As a new sign up, you may be a part of a competing company for the first 180 days from your original registration date regardless of title reached within this period. After the 180-day period you must provide proof of resignation from that competing company to compliance@FARMASIUS.com.
- Apart from the initial 180 days after sign up, all Beauty Influencers with the title of Golden Manager or higher agree not to promote any competing product to those FARMASI offers.
- A Beauty Influencer may not display or bundle Farmasi products or services, in sales literature, on a website, or in sales meetings, with any other products or services to avoid confusing or misleading a prospective Customer or Beauty Influencer into believing there is a relationship between Farmasi, and the non-Company related products or services.
- You may not offer any non-Company related opportunity, products, or services at any Farmasi-related meeting, seminar, or convention, or immediately following said event(s).
- A violation of any of the provisions in this section shall constitute unreasonable and unwarranted contractual interference between the Company and you. As a result, such actions would inflict irreparable harm on Farmasi. In such event, the Company may, at its sole discretion, impose any sanction it deems necessary and appropriate against the Beauty Influencer or Beauty Influencer’s business including termination, the request for immediate injunctive relief, or the pursuit of any other legal and equitable remedies.
In presenting the Company opportunity to potential Customers and Beauty Influencers, you must comply with the following provisions:
- Abstain from a misquote or omission any significant material fact about the Compensation Plan.
- Make clear that the Compensation Plan is based upon sales of Farmasi products and services to consumers.
- Make clear that success can be achieved only through substantial independent efforts and hard work.
- Abstain from unauthorized income projections, claims, or guarantees* during any presentation or discussion of the Farmasi opportunity or Compensation Plan to prospective Customers or Beauty Influencers, frequently citing the Farmasi Income Disclaimer as provided on the Company website.
- Abstain from any claims regarding Company products or services not found in official Company materials.
- Refrain from the promotion of Farmasi in any country where We have not yet established a “presence.”
- Claims (which include personal testimonials) as to therapeutic, curative, or beneficial properties of any Farmasi products offered may not be made except those contained in official Company literature. No Beauty Influencer may make any claim that Farmasi and its marketed products are useful in the cure, treatment, diagnosis, mitigation, or prevention of any diseases. Such statements can be perceived as medical or drug claims. Not only do such claims violate Farmasi policies, but also, they potentially violate federal and state laws and regulations, including the federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and Federal Trade Commission Act
*Note: The terms “income claim” and/or “earnings representation” (collectively “income claim”) include the following: (1) statements of average earnings, (2) statements of non-average earnings, (3) statements of earnings ranges, (4) income testimonials, (5) lifestyle claims, and (6) hypothetical claims. Examples of “statements of non-average earnings” include, “Our number one Beauty Influencer earned over eight hundred thousand dollars last year” or “Our average-ranking Beauty Influencer earns two thousand dollars per month.” An example of a “statement of earnings ranges” is “The monthly income for our higher-ranking Beauty Influencers is ten thousand dollars on the low end to twenty-five thousand dollars a month on the high end.”
3.14 Sales Requirements are Governed by the Compensation Plan
- For all Farmasi products, the Company provides a set sales price. There are no exclusive territories granted to anyone. No franchise fees apply to a Farmasi business.
- The Farmasi program is built on sales to the ultimate consumer. Thus, Beauty Influencers must only purchase inventory that they and their family will personally consume, will be used as a sales tool, or will be resold to others for ultimate use. Beauty Influencers must never attempt to influence any other Beauty Influencers to buy more products than they can reasonably use or sell to Customers in a month.
The downline of a BI who is terminated/resigned will be sponsored by a ‘Farmasi Virtual’ account that will replace this Beauty Influencer. If the existing upline of the person who is now terminated/resigned is at least 1 or above title ranked than the terminated/resigned BI, the downline rolls up to the upline immediately without any condition.
In case the existing upline is ranked the same or below as the terminated/resigned BI, the ‘Farmasi Virtual’ account will sponsor the downline for a minimum of 6 calendar months. During the 6 calendar months, the existing upline could earn the downline if they achieve the requirements. If the existing upline cannot achieve the requirements, then the downline stays under the ‘Farmasi Virtual’ account.
- In the case of a Beauty Influencer that is terminated or resigns, the new sponsor will be able to strategically place the new downline to be sponsored by Beauty Influencers in their 1st generation.

When a card processor forcibly reverses a credit card transaction, returning funds to the cardholder, it is known as a chargeback.

Farmasi will attempt to “claw back” all commission paid plus a $50 chargeback fee via the reversed transaction. This means Farmasi will seek to recover funds from anyone that received a reward from transactions that are ultimately reversed. Until the full funds are received, all access to Farmasi services and programs will be suspended.

Any Beauty Influencer who wishes to develop its third-party website (or site not affiliated with the Company and independently owned and operated by the Beauty Influencer) must seek and receive the Company’s prior written approval before going live with such a third-party website.

- If a Beauty Influencer who has received authorization to create and post any third-party website has the business voluntarily or involuntarily canceled for any reason, or if the Company revokes authorization allowing the Beauty Influencer to maintain such a third-party website, the Beauty Influencer shall assign the URL to the third-party website to the Company within three (3) days from the date of the cancellation and/or re-direct all traffic to the site as directed by the Company. We reserve the right to revoke any Beauty Influencer’s right to use a third-party website at any time if We believe that such revocation is in the best interest of Farmasi, its Beauty Influencers , and/or Customers.

The determination of what is inappropriate is at the Company’s sole discretion, and offending Beauty Influencers will be subject to disciplinary action.

Therefore, even if a Beauty Influencer does not own or operate a blog or Social Media site, a Beauty Influencer’s post(s) to any such site that relates to Farmasi, or which can be traced to the Company makes the Beauty Influencer responsible for the posting. Beauty Influencers are also responsible for postings that occur on any blog or Social Media site that the Beauty Influencer owns, operates, or controls.
- The distinction between a Social Media site and a website may not be clear-cut, because some Social Media sites are particularly robust; therefore, Farmasi reserves the sole and exclusive right to classify certain Social Media sites as third-party websites and require that Beauty Influencers using, or who wish to use, such sites adhere to the Farmasi policies relating to third-party websites.
- If your Farmasi business is canceled for any reason, you must discontinue using the Company name, and all the Company’s trademarks, trade names, service marks, and other intellectual property, and all derivatives of such marks and intellectual property, in any postings and all Social Media sites that you utilize. If you post on any Social Media site on which you have previously identified yourself as a Beauty Influencer of Farmasi, you must conspicuously disclose that you are no longer a Farmasi Beauty Influencer business owner.
- Failure to comply with these Policies for conducting business online may result in the Beauty Influencer losing their right to advertise and market Company products, services, and the Farmasi opportunity online or any other disciplinary action available under the Policies and Procedures.
- Farmasi predicates its business on in-home and event sales. Therefore, face-to-face interactions with Customers and Beauty Influencers are critical to one’s success in this business. Because of this, Farmasi has a strict approach to online marketplace sales via eBay or Etsy.

9.7 Telemarketing Limitations
- A Beauty Influencer must not engage in telemarketing in relation to the operation of his or her Farmasi business. The term “telemarketing” means the placing of one or more telephone calls to an individual or entity to induce the purchase of Farmasi products or services, or to recruit them for the Farmasi opportunity.
- The Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) and the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) each have laws that restrict telemarketing practices. Both federal agencies, as well as several states have “do not call” regulations as part of their telemarketing laws.
- While a Beauty Influencer may not consider herself a “telemarketer” in the traditional sense, these regulations broadly define the term “telemarketer” and “telemarketing” so that the unintentional action of calling someone whose telephone number is listed on the Federal “Do Not Call” registry could cause the Beauty Influencer to violate the law. These regulations must not be taken lightly, as they carry significant penalties (up to $11,000 per violation).
- “Cold calls” or “state-to-state calls” made to prospective Customers or Beauty Influencers that promote either Farmasi products, services or the Farmasi opportunity is considered telemarketing and is prohibited.
- Exceptions to Telemarketing Regulations. A Beauty Influencer may place telephone calls to prospective Customers or Beauty Influencers under the following limited situations:
- If the Beauty Influencer has an established business relationship with the prospect
- In response to the prospect’s personal inquiry or application regarding a product or service offered by the Beauty Influencer within three (3) months immediately before the date of such a call
- If the Beauty Influencer receives written and signed permission from the prospect authorizing the Beauty Influencer to call
- If the call is to family members, personal friends, and acquaintances. However, if a Beauty Influencer makes a habit of collecting business cards from everyone, he/she meets and subsequently calls them, the FTC may consider this a form of telemarketing that is not subject to this exemption
- A Beauty Influencer engaged in calling “acquaintances,” must make such calls on an occasional basis only and not as a routine practice.
- A Beauty Influencer shall not use automatic telephone dialing systems in the operation of her Farmasi businesses.
- Failure to abide by Company policies or regulations as set forth by the FTC and FCC regarding telemarketing may lead to sanctions against the Beauty Influencer’s business, up to and including termination of the business.
- By signing the Beauty Influencer Agreement, or by accepting commission checks, other payments, or awards from Farmasi, a Beauty Influencer gives permission to Farmasi and other Beauty Influencers to contact them as permitted under the Federal Do Not Call regulations.
- In the event a Beauty Influencer violates this section, we reserve the right to institute legal proceedings to obtain monetary or equitable relief.
10.0 CHANGES TO A BEAUTY INFLUENCER’S BUSINESS
10.1 Modification of the Beauty Influencer Agreement
A Beauty Influencer may modify his, her or its existing Beauty Influencer Agreement (i.e., change a social security number to a Federal ID number, add a Spouse or partner to the account, or change the form of ownership from an individual to a Business Entity owned by the Beauty Influencer) by submitting a written request, accompanied by a new Beauty Influencer Agreement and the Business Registration Form, if applicable, completed with fresh signatures (not a “crossed out” or “white-out” version of the first Agreement), and any appropriate supporting documentation.
10.2 Change Sponsor or Placement for Inactive Beauty Influencer
- Beauty Influencers have 3 days after registering to request a change of sponsor. At the discretion of Farmasi, Beauty Influencers who have not earned an accumulation of 125 Personal Volume in 6 calendar months would be considered inactive and their accounts would be closed. Beauty Influencers who have not tendered a letter of resignation, are eligible to re-enroll in the Company under the Sponsor/Placement of their choice.
- Upon written notice to the Company that a former Beauty Influencer wishes to re-enroll, Farmasi will “compress” (close) the original account. A new Beauty Influencer ID number will then be issued to the former Beauty Influencer.
- Such Beauty Influencer does not retain former rank, downline, or rights to commission checks from the former organizations.
As a one-time opportunity, if you are a Beauty Influencer who is sponsored directly by the company (FARMASI Root) and have a total monthly GV of less than 50,000, you may only request a sponsor change if the person you want to sponsor you is at least 2 titles higher than the highest title you have attained.
To avoid being placed back under FARMASI root, you have three months to reach a title higher than the one from your change and a minimum 20 percent GV rise.
E. The Company reserves the right to correct Sponsor or Placement errors at any time and in whatever manner it deems necessary.
F. As a Director you must earn a minimum of 1,500 side points each month. Failure to reach 1,500 side points in 3 consecutive months will allow any 25% Beauty Influencer sponsored by you to request a sponsor change to your immediate upline and this will be granted by the company.
10.3 Change Organizations
- If a Beauty Influencer wishes to transfer organizations, he or she must submit a letter of resignation to the Company Customer Service Department and remain inactive (neither buy or sell) an accumulation of 125 Personal Volume within 6 calendar months from the receipt of the letter before being eligible to re-enroll under a different Sponsor/Placement.
- The Company retains the right to approve or deny any request to re-enroll after a Beauty Influencer’s resignation.
- If re-enrollment is approved, the former Beauty Influencer will be issued a new Beauty Influencer ID number and will be required to submit a new Beauty Influencer Agreement. The Beauty Influencer will not be entitled to keep any former rank, downline, or rights to commission checks from any prior organization.
10.4 Unethical Sponsoring
- Unethical sponsoring activities include, but are not limited to, enticing, bidding, or engaging in unhealthy competition in trying to acquire a prospect or new Beauty Influencer from another Beauty Influencer or influencing another Beauty Influencer to transfer to a different sponsor.
- Allegations of unethical sponsoring must be reported in writing to the Company Compliance Department within the first 90 days of enrollment. If the reports are substantiated, Farmasi may transfer the Beauty Influencer or the Beauty Influencer’s downline to another sponsor, Placement, or organization without approval from the current up-line Sponsor or Placement Beauty Influencers. The Company remains the final authority in such cases.
- Farmasi prohibits the act of “Stacking.” Stacking is the unauthorized manipulation of the Company compensation system and/or the marketing plan to trigger commissions or cause a promotion off a downline Beauty Influencer in an unearned manner. One example of stacking occurs when a Sponsor places participant under an inactive downline without his or her knowledge to trigger unearned qualification for commissioning. Stacking is unethical and unacceptable behavior, and as such, it is a punishable offense with measures up to and including the termination of the independent consultant positions of all individuals and/or entities found to be directly involved.
- Should Beauty Influencers engage in solicitation and/or enticement of members of another direct sales company to sell or distribute Farmasi products and services to, they bear the risk of being sued by the other direct sales company. If any lawsuit, arbitration, or mediation is brought against a Beauty Influencer alleging that they engaged in inappropriate recruiting activity of another company’s sales force or Customers, the Company will not pay any of the Beauty Influencer’s defence costs or legal fees, nor will the Company indemnify the Beauty Influencer for any judgment, award, or settlement.
10.5 Sell, Assign or Delegate Ownership
- To preserve the integrity of the hierarchical structure, it is necessary for Farmasi to place restrictions on the transfer, assignment, or sale of a business.
- A Beauty Influencer may not sell or assign rights or delegate the position as a Beauty Influencer without prior written approval by the Company, which approval will not be unreasonably withheld. Any attempted sale, assignment, or delegation without such approval may be voided at the discretion of the Company.
- Should the sale be approved by the Company, the Buyer assumes the position of the Seller at the current qualified title, but at the current “paid as” rank, at the time of the sale and acquires the Seller’s Downline.
- To request corporate authorization for a sale or transfer of a Farmasi business, the following items must be submitted to the Company Compliance Department:
- A Sale/Transfer of Business Form properly completed, with the requisite signatures
- A copy of the Sales Agreement signed and dated by both Buyer and Seller
- A Beauty Influencer Agreement completed and signed by the Buyer
- Any additional supporting documentation requested by the Company
- Any debt obligations that either Seller or Buyer may have with Farmasi must be satisfied prior to the approval of the sale or transfer by the Company.
- A Beauty Influencer who sells his or her business is not eligible to re-enroll as a Beauty Influencer in any organization for twelve (12) full calendar months following the date of the sale except as otherwise expressly set forth in these Policies and Procedures.
G. The Transfer/Sale will be approved or denied at the sole discretion of Farmasi.
10.6 Separating a Beauty Influencer’s Farmasi Business
- Pending a divorce or dissolution of a partnership or other business entity, the parties must adopt one of the following methods of operation:
- One of the parties may, with the written consent of the other(s), operate the Farmasi business whereby the relinquishing Spouse, shareholders, partners, members or trustees authorize the Company to deal directly and solely with the other Spouse, non-relinquishing shareholder, partner, member or trustee;
- The parties may continue to operate the Farmasi business jointly on a “business as usual” basis, whereupon all compensation paid by the Company will be paid in the name designated as the Beauty Influencer or in the name of the entity to be divided, as the parties may independently agree between them. If no name is stipulated, Farmasi will pay compensation to the name on record and in such event, the Beauty Influencer named on the account shall indemnify Farmasi from any claims from the other business owner(s) or the other Spouse with respect to such payment.
- The Company recognizes only one Downline organization and will issue only one commission check per Farmasi business per commission cycle. Under no circumstances will the Downline of an organization be divided, nor will Farmasi split commission and/or bonus checks.
- If a relinquishing Spouse, partner, or owner of the business has completely relinquished (“Relinquishing Party”), in writing, all rights to the original Farmasi business, he or she may immediately thereafter re-enroll under the Sponsor and Placement of his or her choice. In such cases, however, the Relinquishing Party shall have no rights to, and shall not solicit, any Beauty Influencer or active Customer in the former organization and must develop a new business in the same manner as any other new Beauty Influencer. A Beauty Influencer in the Relinquishing Party’s former Downline who wishes to transfer to the Relinquishing Party’s new organization or to any other organization, must comply with the requirements in Section 12.5.
- Upon the death or incapacity of a Beauty Influencer, the Beauty Influencer’s corresponding business may be passed on to his or her legal successors in interest (successor). Whenever a Farmasi business is transferred by will or other testamentary process, the successor acquires the right to collect all bonuses and commissions of the deceased Beauty Influencer’s sales organization. The successor must:
- Complete and sign a new Beauty Influencer Agreement
- Comply with the terms and provisions of the Beauty Influencer Agreement; and
- Meet all the qualifications for the last rank achieved by the former Beauty Influencer.
- Bonus and commission check of a Farmasi business transferred based on this section will be paid in a single check to the successor. The successor must provide the Company with an “address of record” to which all bonus and commission Payments will be sent. Payments will be based on the current performance of the business, not the highest rank or volume achieved.
- If the business is passed on to joint devisees (successors), they must form a business entity and acquire a federal taxpayer identification number. Farmasi will issue all bonus and commission payments and one 1099 Miscellaneous Income Tax form to the managing business entity only.
- Appropriate legal documentation must be submitted to the Company Compliance Department to ensure the transfer is done properly. To affect a testamentary transfer of a Farmasi business, the successor must provide the following to the Company Compliance Department:
- A certified copy of the death certificate; and
- A notarized copy of the will or other appropriate legal documentation establishing the successor’s right to the Farmasi business.
- To complete a transfer of the Farmasi business because of incapacity, the successor must provide the following to the Company Compliance Department:
- A notarized copy of an appointment as trustee
- A notarized copy of the trust document or other appropriate legal documentation establishing the trustee’s right to administer the Farmasi business; and
- A completed Beauty Influencer Agreement executed by the trustee.
- If the successor is already an existing Beauty Influencer, the Company will allow such Beauty Influencer to keep his or her own business plus the inherited business active for up to six (6) months. By the end of the 6-month period, the Beauty Influencer must have compressed (if applicable), sold or otherwise transferred either the existing business or the inherited business.
- If the successor wishes to terminate the Farmasi business, he, she or it must submit a notarized statement stating the desire to do so, along with a certified copy of the death certificate, appointment as trustee, and/or any other appropriate legal documentation.
- Upon written request, Farmasi may grant a one (1) month bereavement waiver and pay out at the last “paid as” rank.
10.8 Resignation/Voluntary Cancellation
- A Beauty Influencer may immediately terminate his or her business by submitting a written notice or email to the Company Compliance Department. The written notice must include the following:
- The Beauty Influencer’s intent to resign;
- Date of resignation;
- Farmasi Identification Number;
- Reason for resigning; and
- A Beauty Influencer may not use resignation or voluntary cancellation to immediately change Sponsor and Placement. Instead, the Beauty Influencer who has voluntarily resigned is not eligible to reapply for a business or have any financial interest in a or any Farmasi business for six (6) months from the receipt of the written notice of resignation.
C. Following any voluntary cancellation, a Beauty Influencer:
- Shall have no right, title, claim or interest to any commission or bonus from the sales generated by the Beauty Influencer’s former organization or any other payments in association with the Beauty Influencer’s former independent business
- Effectively waives all claims to property rights or any interest in or to the Beauty Influencer’s former downline organization

The Beauty Influencer will then have seven (7) calendar days from the date of such notice to appeal the termination in writing. Farmasi must receive the Beauty Influencer’s written appeal within seven (7) calendar days of the date of the termination letter. If the written appeal is not received within this time, the termination will be considered final.
- If the Beauty Influencer does file a timely appeal of termination, the Company will review its decision, along with any other information it may deem relevant, reconsider any other appropriate action, and notify the Beauty Influencer of its decision. The decision of the Company is then considered final and not subject to further review.
- If the termination is not rescinded, the termination will be effective as of the date of the original termination notices by the Company. The former Beauty Influencer shall thereafter be prohibited from using the names, marks or signs, labels, stationery, advertising, or business material referring to or relating to any Farmasi products or services. The Company will notify the active Upline Sponsor of the termination, and the organization of the terminated Beauty Influencer will “roll up” to the active Upline Sponsor on record.
- The Beauty Influencer who is involuntarily terminated by the Company may not reapply for a business, either under the present name or any other name or entity, without the express written consent of an officer of Farmasi. In any event, such Beauty Influencer may not re-apply for a business for twelve (12) months from the date of termination.

- Farmasi will confine its involvement to disputes regarding Farmasi business matters only. We will not decide issues that involve personality conflicts or unprofessional conduct by or between Beauty Influencers outside the context of Company business. These issues go beyond the scope of the Company and may not be used to justify a Sponsor, placement change or transfer.
- Farmasi does not consider, enforce, or mediate third party agreements between Beauty Influencers, nor does it provide names, funding, or advice for obtaining outside legal counsel.

- The prevailing party in any such arbitration shall be entitled to receive from the losing party, all costs and expenses of arbitration, including reasonable attorney’s fees and filing fees.

C. This agreement to arbitration shall survive any termination or expiration of the Agreement.
D. Nothing in these Policies and Procedures shall prevent Farmasi from applying for or obtaining from any court having jurisdiction a writ of attachment, a temporary injunction, preliminary injunction, permanent injunction, or other relief available to safeguard and protect the Company’s interests or its Confidential Information prior to, during or following the filing of an arbitration or other proceeding or pending the rendition of a decision or award in connection with any arbitration or other proceeding.

In any case which arises from or relates to the wrongful termination of the Beauty Influencer Agreement and/or a Beauty Influencer’s Farmasi business, the Company and Beauty Influencer agree that damages will be extremely difficult to ascertain. Therefore, the Company and Beauty Influencer stipulate that if the involuntary termination of the Beauty Influencer Agreement and/or loss of the Beauty Influencer’s Farmasi business is proven and held to be wrongful under any theory of law, the Beauty Influencer’s sole remedy shall be liquidated damages calculated as follows:
- For Beauty Influencer’s at the “Paid As” rank of 18% or above (with the exception of paragraph II below), liquidated damages shall be in the amount of his/her gross compensation that he/she earned pursuant to the Farmasi Compensation Plan in the twelve (12) months immediately preceding the termination.
- For Beauty Influencer’s at the “Paid As” rank of 22%, liquidated damages shall be in the amount of his/her gross compensation that he/she earned pursuant to the Farmasi Compensation Plan in the twenty-four (24) months immediately preceding the termination.
In any action arising from or relating to the Agreement, the Farmasi business, or the relationship between the Company and Beauty Influencer, both parties waive all claims for incidental and/or consequential damages, even if the other party has been apprised of the likelihood of such damage. The Company and Beauty Influencer further waive all claims to exemplary and punitive damages.
If any provision of these Policies and Procedures is found to be invalid, or unenforceable for any reason, only the invalid provision shall be severed. The remaining terms and provisions hereof shall remain in full force and shall be construed as if such invalid or unenforceable provision never had comprised a part of these Policies and Procedures.
Only an officer of Farmasi can, in writing, affect a waiver of these Policies and Procedures. The Company’s waiver of any breach by a Beauty Influencer shall not affect Our rights with respect to any subsequent breach, nor shall it affect the rights or obligations of any other Beauty Influencer.
The existence of any claim or cause of action of a Beauty Influencer against the Company shall not constitute a defense to Our enforcement of any term or provision found in these Policies and Procedures.
