The Young Living Global Leadership Cruise 2019 Promotion (the “Promotion”) is sponsored by Young Living Essential Oils, LC, Thanksgiving Point Business Park, 3125 Executive Parkway, Lehi, UT 84043 (“Young Living”). The promotion period begins 1 August 2018, at 12:01 a.m. and ends 31 December 2018, at 11:59 p.m., according to the time zone applicable to the sponsor's office in which the Promotion is being sponsored, as detailed in Appendix A (the “Promotion Period”). Young Living’s method of timekeeping is the official time clock for the Promotion and is final and undisputable. Winners will be selected after the Promotion Period, based on the number of points earned for the Global Leadership Cruise promotion (“GLC Points”), the geographic location, and the membership rank of each eligible Young Living member (“Member”). Ranking is based on the ranking system outlined in the Young Living Compensation Plan.
The Promotion is open to active Members who are in good standing with Young Living; are 18 years of age or older or the majority age in their jurisdiction as of 1 August 2018; have achieved the rank of Silver or higher during the Promotion; and have a primary billing address listed on their Member account and proof of citizenship in the United States of America, Canada, Ecuador, Europe, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, or Singapore. Additionally, Members in Australia/New Zealand with residency status and a work visa may qualify. Eligible Members may be referred to herein as “Participants.” This promotion excludes all Members in other countries and is void where prohibited. Active Members are Members who have made a purchase of at least 50 PV in the last 12 months and signed the Young Living Member Agreement. Star, Senior Star, and Executive Members will be eligible to earn points but will only become eligible to win a Prize as of the first day of the month after the first month during the Promotional Period in which they achieve the rank of Silver. For example, if a Participant advances to Silver on 21 September they become eligible to win a Prize as of 1 October . For Participants with a primary billing address in Europe, eligibility to win the Prize is conditioned upon express, written agreement to the terms of this Promotion.
To receive a Prize (defined below), each winning Participant must register for a ticket on the Royal Caribbean’s cruise liner, Ovation of the Sea, leaving from Seattle, Washington, and travelling between 7-14 June 2019 (“GL Cruise”), by responding to the registration link sent to their email by 21 January 2019, as outlined below.
How to Win Prizes
Participants will compete against Members of the same rank within their market, as defined in Appendix B, to earn the most GLC Points. Each winner will earn a single Prize. Prizes vary based on the number of GLC Points earned compared to other Prize winners, as detailed in the Prize section.
Prizes will be awarded to Participants who have earned the most GLC Points during the Promotion Period in each group shown in the following tables. There are multiple tiers of Prizes. The number of Prizes awarded in each group is shown in the tables. The highest GLC Point earners in each group will receive the higher tiered Prizes, with the lower GLC Point earners receiving the lowered tier Prizes, respectively. If a market does not have any Participants who earn GLC Points in a group, the Prize for that rank will not roll over to another group. Participants are assigned to the group corresponding to their initial Baseline Rank and their market for the duration of the Promotion. A Participant will be deemed to initially have a “Baseline Rank” of their paid-as rank for June 2018.
Additionally, the top 10 Participants with the highest GLC Point totals globally will not be deemed to win a group-specific Prize but will instead earn a Top 3 or Tier 1 Prize, detailed below.
In the event of a tie between one or more Participant in any group or for any Prize, Young Living will randomly select the winner between all tying Participants.
Young Living reserves the right to award additional Prizes to any Participant for any reason, at its sole discretion, and regardless of the number of any GLC Points earned. By participating in the Promotion, Participants acknowledge and agree that Young Living has this right.
All Prize winners will receive passage on the GL Cruise for the Prize winner and one guest. Infants and children under the age of 18 are not permitted to attend the trip as a guest. Prizes are based on the number of GLC Points earned compared to other Prize winners. The following are the Prizes to be awarded to winners of the Promotion (collectively, “Prizes”, each a “Prize”) based on each Prize winners’ GLC Point ranking:
All Prize winners will receive passage on the Global Leadership Cruise for themselves and a guest.

How to Earn Points
Participants earn GLC Points by (i) advancing in rank, as such advancement is outlined in the Young Living Compensation Plan, above their Baseline Rank and (ii) when a Member in the Participant’s Current Commission Structure (defined below) advances in rank above their respective Baseline Rank. A Participant’s “Current Commission Structure” means the set of all Members in the Participant’s sales organization whose purchases are commissionable to the Participant in that month.
Each time a Participant advances in rank above their then current Baseline Rank, the new rank will become the Participant’s new Baseline Rank. For example, if during the first month of the Promotional Period, a Participant advances in rank from an initial Baseline Rank of Silver to the rank of Gold, then in the second month of the Promotional Period, their Baseline Rank will be Gold.
The table below indicates the number of GLC Points earned by Participants every time Members in their Current Commission Structure advance in rank over their initial Baseline Rank or subsequent ranks.
|Crown Diamond to Royal Crown Diamond||100 points|
|Diamond to Crown Diamond||60 points|
| Platinum to Diamond||40 points|
|Gold to Platinum||20 points|
|Silver to Gold||15 points|
|Executive to Silver||10 points|
|Senior Star to Executive||5 points |
|Star to Senior Star||2 points |
The table below indicates the number of GLC Points earned by Participants each time they personally advance in rank over their initial Baseline Rank or their subsequent ranks during the Promotion Period.

|Platinum to Diamond||100 points|
|Gold to Platinum||50 points|

By participating in this contest, Participants acknowledge and accept that this information will be made public.
