Any attempt to transfer or assign the Agreement without the express written consent of WEALTHEO renders the Agreement voidable at the option of WEALTHEO and may result in termination of your business.
Images / Recordings / Consents. You agree to permit WEALTHEO to obtain photographs, videos, and other recorded media of you or your likeness. You acknowledge and agree to allow any such recorded media to be used by WEALTHEO for any lawful purpose, without compensation, and waive all claims for remuneration for such use.
Modification of Terms. With the exception of the dispute resolution section in the Policies and Procedures, which can only be modified by way of mutual consent, the terms of this Agreement may be modified as specified in the Policies and Procedures. The Agreement, in its current form and as amended by WEALTHEO at its discretion, constitutes the entire contract between WEALTHEO and you. Any promises, representations, offers, or other communications not expressly set forth in the Agreement are of no force or effect. Any waiver by WEALTHEO of any breach of the Agreement must be in writing and signed by an authorized officer of WEALTHEO. Waiver by WEALTHEO of any breach of the Agreement by me shall not operate or be construed as a waiver of any subsequent breach.
Jurisdiction and Governing Law. The formation, construction, interpretation, and enforceability of your contract with WEALTHEO as set forth in this Consultant & Affiliate Agreement and any incorporated documents shall be governed by and interpreted in all respects under the laws of the State of Texas without regard to conflict of law provisions. As for Louisiana residents, notwithstanding the foregoing, Louisiana residents may bring an action against WEALTHEO with jurisdiction and venue as provided by Louisiana law.
Dispute Resolution. In the event of a dispute between a Consultant or Affiliate and Wealtheo arising from or relating to the Agreement, or the rights and obligations of either party, the parties shall attempt in good faith to resolve the dispute through nonbinding mediation as more fully described in the Policies and Procedures. If the parties are unsuccessful in resolving their dispute through mediation, all disputes and claims relating to WEALTHEO, its products and services, the rights and obligations of a WEALTHEO Consultant or Affiliate, or any other claims or causes of action relating to the performance of either a Consultant, Affiliate or WEALTHEO under the Agreement or the WEALTHEO Policies and Procedures shall be settled totally and finally by arbitration as enumerated in the Policies and Procedures in Conroe, Texas or such other location as WEALTHEO prescribes, in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act and the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association, except that all parties shall be entitled to discovery rights allowed under the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. No arbitration or proceeding can be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to the arbitrations or proceedings. The parties agree that the arbitrator will have the sole power to decide any question about the arbitrability of any claim, dispute or other difference between the parties. Additionally, you agree not to initiate or participate in any class action proceeding against WEALTHEO, whether in a judicial or mediation or arbitration proceeding, and you waive all rights to become a member of any certified class in any lawsuit or proceeding. This agreement to arbitrate shall survive any termination or expiration of the Agreement. Nothing in the Agreement shall prevent WEALTHEO from applying to and obtaining from any court having jurisdiction a writ of attachment, garnishment, temporary injunction, restraining order, preliminary injunction, permanent injunction or other equitable relief available to safeguard and protect its intellectual property rights, including but not limited to customer and/or consultant lists as well as other trade secrets, trademarks, trade names, patents, and copyrights. The parties may also seek judicial enforcement of an arbitration award. In all actions before the courts, the parties consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue before the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas, or state court residing in Montgomery County, State of Texas. Jurisdiction and venue of any matter not subject to arbitration shall reside exclusively in the County of Montgomery and State of Texas.
Time Limitation. If a Consultant or Affiliate wishes to bring an action against WEALTHEO for any act or omission relating to or arising from the Agreement, such action must be brought within one (1) year from the date of the alleged conduct giving rise to the cause of action, or the shortest time permissible under state law. Failure to bring such action within such time shall bar all claims against WEALTHEO for such act or omission. Consultant and Affiliate waive all claims that any other statute of limitations applies.
Liquidated Damages. In any case which arises from or relates to the termination of Consultant’s or Affiliate’s Agreement and independent business, the parties agree that damages will be very difficult to ascertain. Therefore, the parties stipulate that if a Consultant or Affiliate termination is proven and held to be wrongful under any theory of law, Consultant’s or Affiliate’s sole remedy shall be liquidated damages calculated as follows: liquidated damages shall be in the amount of his/her gross compensation that he/she earned pursuant to WEALTHEO’s Compensation Plan in the twelve (12) months immediately preceding the termination. Gross compensation shall include commissions and bonuses earned by the Consultant or Affiliate pursuant to WEALTHEO’s Compensation Plan.
Miscellaneous. If any provision of the Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision shall be reformed only to the extent necessary to make it enforceable, and the balance of the Agreement will remain in full force and effect. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original, but all of which together shall constitute one instrument. The provisions of this Agreement, including all documents incorporated herein by reference, embody the whole agreement between you and WEALTHEO and supersedes any prior agreements, understandings and obligations between you and WEALTHEO concerning the subject matter of your contract with WEALTHEO.
Notice of Right to Cancel. You may request a refund on your enrollment fee if it’s done within three (3) business days from the date of enrollment (Five business days in Alaska and fifteen business days in North Dakota for individuals age 65 and older).
