Zone, LP, hereinafter “GAZ” or the “Company. This Agreement is created to provide detailed
guidelines and limitations for all GAZ Affiliates.
The purpose of the GAZ Affiliate Program is to provide individuals with the opportunity to market and
sell membership access to the GAZ online marketing system. In exchange for successfully making sales
and referring GAZ to other Affiliates, the Company offers compensation pursuant to the terms of the

state/province of residence and submit a properly completed electronic Affiliate Agreement to
If an applicant lives in the Unites States or a U.S. territory they must also have a valid Social

Modification of Terms
Because federal, state, and local laws, as well as the business environment, periodically change, GAZ
reserves the right to amend the Agreement and the Compensation Plan in its sole and absolute
discretion. Notification of amendments shall appear in Official GAZ Materials. Any such amendment,
change, or modification shall be effective thirty (30) days following one of the following

The term of this Agreement will begin upon our acceptance of your application and will end when
terminated by either of us upon thirty (30) days notice. In the event of a material breach of this
Agreement, GAZ reserves the right to terminate this Agreement immediately. Upon cancellation
or termination, all property rights are forfeited regarding any bonuses, commissions or other
remuneration derived through your sales. GAZ reserves the right to terminate all Affiliate
Agreements upon thirty days’ notice if the Company elects to: (1) cease business operations; (2)
dissolve as a business entity; or (3) terminate distribution of its products via Affiliate channels.
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.
Independent Contractor Status.
The GAZ Affiliate is an independent contractor, and not a purchaser of a franchise or business
opportunity. Therefore, each Affiliate’s success depends on his or her independent efforts. The
agreement between GAZ and its Affiliates does not create an employer/employee relationship, agency,
partnership, or joint venture between GAZ and the Affiliate. All Affiliates are responsible for
paying local, state, provincial, and federal taxes due from all compensation earned as an Affiliate
of the Company. Affiliates have no express or implied authority to bind GAZ to any obligation or to
make any commitments by or on behalf of the Company.
As a self-employed independent contractor, you will be operating your own independent business
selling products available through GAZ 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.
Selling the GAZ Membership.
You agree to make no representations or claims about the membership beyond those shown in official
Income Disclosure Policy
The GAZ Compensation Plan is an exciting opportunity that rewards you for selling our proprietary
products and services and for sponsoring other Affiliates who do the same. Although the opportunity
is unlimited, individual results will vary depending on market conditions, commitment levels and
sales skills of each participating Affiliate. Since GAZ recently launched, it lacks enough
statistical data to prepare reliable income disclosures. The numbers below reflect
estimates prepared by the company pending a more detailed survey to be conducted
until enough statistical data is available. Based on industry standards and company projections, the
average annual gross revenue for Affiliates is projected to be anywhere between $500 and
There will certainly be participants who will earn less while others will earn much more. We’re
excited about the GAZ Compensation Plan and we’re confident it will provide you a solid foundation
to help you achieve your financial goals.
If income projections were presented to you prior to your enrolment, such projections are not
necessarily representative of the income, if any, that you can or will earn through your
participation in the Compensation Plan. These income projections should not be considered as
guarantees or projections of your actual earnings or profits. Success with GAZ results only from
hard work, dedication, and leadership.
GAZ Compensation Plan
Affiliates must adhere to the terms of the GAZ Compensation Plan as set forth in Official GAZ
Materials. Affiliates shall not require or encourage other current or prospective customers or
Affiliates to participate in GAZ in any manner that varies from the program as set forth in Official
Company Materials. Affiliates shall not require or encourage other current or prospective customers
or Affiliates to make any purchase from, or payment to, any individual or other entity to
participate in the GAZ Compensation Plan other than those purchases or payments identified as
recommended or required in Official GAZ Materials.
In an effort to alleviate administrative burdens, GAZ reserves the right to postpone commission
payments until such time the cumulative amount meets or exceeds $29.70.
A GAZ Affiliate must review his or her monthly statement and report any discrepancies within thirty
days of receipt. After the thirty day “grace period,” no additional requests will be considered for
commission’s recalculation. For additional information on payment of commissions, please review the
Errors or Questions
If an Affiliate has questions about or believes any errors have been made regarding commissions,
bonuses, or charges, the Affiliate must notify GAZ in writing within thirty (30) days of the date of
the purported error or incident in question. GAZ will not be responsible for any errors,
omissions, or problems not reported to the Company within thirty days.
The GAZ Compensation Plan is based upon the sale of GAZ memberships, products, and other services to
end consumers. Purchasing a GAZ membership solely for the purpose of qualifying for
commissions is strictly prohibited.
Bonus Buying Prohibited
Bonus buying is strictly and absolutely prohibited. Bonus buying includes: (a) the enrollment of
individuals or entities without the knowledge of and/or execution of an Affiliate Agreement by such
individuals or entities; (b) the fraudulent enrollment of an individual or entity as an Affiliate or
Customer; (c) the enrollment or attempted enrollment of non-existent individuals or entities as
Affiliates or Customers (“phantoms”); (d) purchasing GAZ membership(s) or products/services on
behalf of another Affiliate or Customer, or under another Affiliate’s or Customer’s ID number, to
qualify for commissions or bonuses; and/or (e) any other mechanism or artifice to qualify for rank
advancement, incentives, prizes, commissions, or bonuses that is not driven by bona fide product or
service purchases by end user consumers.
All initial fees paid for the GAZ membership, products and/or services comes with a thirty (30) day
satisfaction guarantee. Because the digital nature of the product(s) and/or service(s) and the
immediacy of the benefits make a refund commercially impractical, all subsequent fees are
Affiliates will receive commissions twice per month. On the 5th of every month, for sales completed
15th - end of the previous month, and on the 20th of every month, for sales completed between the
1st - 15th of the current month.
The minimum commission payment will be $29.70. If you earned less than $29.70, your commission will
roll to the next month until the threshold is met. If you wish to be paid via Electronic Funds
Transfer or ACH, please submit the required forms available on our website.
Use of Sales Aids
While promoting the Company, Affiliates must use the sales aids and support materials produced by
GAZ. If GAZ Affiliates develop their own sales aids and promotional materials (which includes
Internet advertising), notwithstanding Affiliates’ good intentions, they may unintentionally violate
any number of statutes or regulations affecting a GAZ business. Accordingly, Affiliates must submit
all written sales aids, promotional materials, advertisements, websites and other literature to the
Company for approval prior to use. Unless the Affiliate receives specific written approval to use
the material, the request shall be deemed denied. All Affiliates shall safeguard and promote the
good reputation of GAZ and its services.
An Affiliate may not build third-party sites that contain materials copied from corporate sources nor
create his or her own website to promote the Company without receiving express approval from GAZ. An
Affiliate may not use or attempt to register any of the Company’s trade names, trademarks, service
names, service marks, service names, URLs, advertising phrases, the Company’s name or any derivative
thereof, for any purpose including, but not limited to, Internet domain names (URL), third party Web
sites, Web pages, or blogs.
GAZ’s Proprietary Information and Trade Secrets
You recognize and agree that information compiled by or maintained by GAZ, including the database of
prospective and existing customers, constitutes a commercially advantageous, unique and proprietary
trade secret of the Company, which it keeps confidential and treats as a trade secret. During the
term of your contract with GAZ, the Company grants you a personal, non-exclusive, non-transferable
and revocable right to use trade secret, confidential, and proprietary business information

expiration of this Agreement between the Affiliate and GAZ, the Affiliate shall not use the
information to compete with the Company or for any purpose other than promoting his or her business
with GAZ. The Affiliate acknowledges that such proprietary information is of such character as to
render it unique and that disclosure or use thereof in violation of this provision will result in
irreparable damage to GAZ. GAZ will be entitled to injunctive relief or to recover damages
against any Affiliate who violates this provision in any action to enforce its rights under this
During the term of this Agreement any GAZ Affiliate must not sell, or entice others to sell, any competing products or services.

Case Study #1: You join GAZ, a new marketing system launches and you purchase that system to go through it’s training to expand your marketing education.
Although we recommend staying focussed (as an affiliate you have access to the same training and marketing system as our top leaders) this is OKAY and will not result in a warning or termination, as long as you do not generate ANY leads or sales using the new marketing system.
Case Study #2: You join GAZ, a new marketing system launches and you purchase that system to actively market GAZ and that system at the same time (“actively market” refers to generating leads and/or sales).
This is NOT okay and will result in a warning or termination depending if you have previously broken our affiliate agreement.
Case Study #3: You join GAZ, another marketing system launches that you like better, so you cancel your GAZ account and make the switch. You then decide (however many months later) you want to re-activate your GAZ account.
This situation is handled on a case-by-case basis and your ability to re-activate your GAZ account is NOT guaranteed. Please contact email@example.com to have your case reviewed by our executive team.
You agree that during the period while you are an Affiliate, and for one (1) calendar years following
resignation or termination from the Company, you will not encourage, solicit, or otherwise attempt
to recruit or persuade any other GAZ Affiliate to compete with the business of GAZ.
Furthermore, for the same duration, you agree not to recruit or solicit any of the individual
customers or companies listed in the GAZ customer database for a competing enterprise, unless you
can demonstrate a pre-existing relationship prior to this Agreement.
GAZ desires to provide its Affiliates with the best products, services and Compensation Plan
possible. Accordingly, GAZ values constructive criticism and encourages the submission of written
comments addressed to GAZ leadership. However, negative and disparaging comments about the Company

breach of these Policies and Procedures and may be subject to sanctions as deemed appropriate by the

The name of GAZ, each of its membership, product and/or service names and other names that have been adopted by the Company in connection with its business are proprietary trade names, trademarks and service marks of GAZ. As such, these marks are of great value to GAZ and are supplied to Affiliates for their use only in an authorized manner.
This also applies to testimonials from our clients. As an affiliate you may use a testimonial in your GAZ-related marketing only if you have received written permission from both the Company and the client whom the testimonial belongs to.
