Young Living Essential Oils LC (“Young Living”) is launching the ELITE EXPRESS program on March 1, 2016 (“Program Initiation Date”). Members who achieve Star rank are eligible to participate in the ELITE EXPRESS program. The ELITE EXPRESS program consists of four reward tracks and one bonus track that offer an added incentive for members to achieve and maintain leadership ranks. Members are provided with rewards and recognition for achieving specified leadership ranks within a specifically defined amount of time from a prequalifying rank.
The ELITE EXPRESS program is an additional incentive intended to motivate and reward elite, high-performing members. While all members are encouraged to participate, it is important to remember that it is not intended to replace current qualifications or incentives that are offered to Young Living’s member base. However, Elite Express will replace the existing Si6 program. Members who qualify for Executive by February 29, 2016, will be grandfathered into the existing Si6 program for that Silver track of the ELITE EXPRESS program as described below.
1. A participating member must achieve a prequalifying rank for each specific reward track (described below) to initiate the beginning of a qualification period.
2. The member must maintain the prequalifying rank throughout the qualification period.
3. The member must achieve the qualifying rank for each reward track within the qualifying period specified for each reward.
4. The qualification period for each reward track begins on the 1st of the month following a member’s first time achievement of the prequalifying rank.
The ELITE EXPRESS program is open to Young Living members ("Members") who are active, have achieved at least the rank of Star, are in good standing, are at least 18 years of age, and have a primary billing address located in the United States of America, Australia, Canada, Europe, Hong Kong, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Ecuador, Singapore and Taiwan. This promotion shall exclude all Members in NFR markets. Void where prohibited. Active members are Members who have made a purchase of at least 100PV in the last 12 months and signed the Young Living Member Agreement. Members in good standing are in compliance with all terms of Young Living's Member Agreement and Policies and Procedures.

A member who qualifies for an incentive reward and then attempts to cancel the order(s) will not receive a refund for such order(s).

By participating in the ELITE EXPRESS program and accepting an incentive and/or reward, a member consents to the use of his or her name, address (city and state/province of residence), voice, and statements relating to the ELITE EXPRESS program and Young Living, and photographs or other likeness without further compensation, notification, or permission, in any publicity or advertising carried out by Young Living or any related entities in any media without territorial or time limitation, except where prohibited by law.
Limitations of Liability:
Young Living and its affiliates, subsidiaries, and parent companies are not responsible for any inaccuracies in information that may be used in the ELITE EXPRESS program, for any technical or human error that may occur in the processing of orders, including data entered by members, any miscommunications such as technical failures related to computer, telephone, cable, and unavailable network or server connections, related technical failures, or other failures related to hardware, software, or virus, or incomplete, late, or misdirected orders. Any compromise to the fair and proper conduct of the ELITE EXPRESS program related to a computer virus or similar type of technical impairment that may affect the proper fairness, security, and administration of the ELITE EXPRESS program may result in the termination, amendment, or modification of the program or portion thereof at the sole discretion of Young Living. Young Living reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to void any order of members whom Young Living believes have attempted to tamper with or impair the administration, security, or fairness of the ELITE EXPRESS program or to disqualify any member who acts in a non-sportsman like manner or with the intent to threaten or harass any other person.
By participating in the ELITE EXPRESS program, each member waives all rights to claim punitive, incidental and consequential damages, attorneys’ fees, or any damages other than actual out-of-pocket costs or losses that may arise in connection with participation in the ELITE EXPRESS program, acceptance, possession, and/or use of a reward.
All causes of action arising out of or in connection with the ELITE EXPRESS program or any reward awarded shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action. Some jurisdictions may not allow certain limitations on damages or the ability to seek damages through a class action, so some of these restrictions may not apply to you.
Other Rules and Regulations:
Each reward recipient will be responsible for all applicable taxes on his or her reward, whether or not the reward is used, unless he or she refuses to accept a reward at the time it is presented. Where applicable, the recipient will have the fair market value of the accepted reward reported on a Form 1099-MISC (or Form T4A in Canada). If aspects of a reward change outside the control of Young Living, or if, for any reason, all or any portion of a reward is or becomes unavailable, Young Living will not be liable or responsible for any such changes and reserves the right to substitute a reward of equivalent or greater value at Young Living's sole and absolute discretion. No transfer of a reward to a third party is permitted. No cash substitutions will be offered for non-cash rewards. By accepting a reward, the recipient agrees that Young Living shall not be liable for any injuries, damages, or losses of any kind resulting from or in connection with the awarding, acceptance, possession, or use of a reward or any aspects or parts thereof.
Young Living will be the final arbiter of all rule interpretations and qualification determinations and such decisions will be final. Where applicable, any qualification subsidy will be reported as income on the recipients’ annual 1099 form. Reward recipients will be responsible for paying all taxes on subsidy or subsidies granted by Young Living. The ELITE EXPRESS program is void where prohibited by law. All members who participate and qualify will be subject to auditing or verification of their point totals.
By participating in the ELITE EXPRESS program, you (i) acknowledge compliance with these ELITE EXPRESS program rules, including all eligibility requirements; (ii) warrant that any information you provide in connection with the ELITE EXPRESS program is true and accurate; and (iii) agree to be bound by the decisions of Young Living, which shall be final and binding in all matters relating to the ELITE EXPRESS program. Members who do not comply with these ELITE EXPRESS program rules are subject to disqualification.
Young Living reserves the right in its sole discretion to cancel, modify, or suspend the ELITE EXPRESS program at any time, with or without notice, for any reason or no reason, including if fraud, technical failures, viruses, bugs, errors in programming, or any other causes corrupt the administration, security, or integrity of the ELITE EXPRESS program.
The ELITE EXPRESS program is subject to all applicable federal, state, provincial, and municipal laws. All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation, and enforceability of these ELITE EXPRESS program rules or the rights and obligations of participant and Young Living in connection with the ELITE EXPRESS program shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the substantive laws of the State of Utah, without regard to conflicts of law principles. All participants consent to the jurisdiction and venue of the federal, state, and local courts of Utah.
In the event of any conflict with any ELITE EXPRESS program details contained in these the ELITE EXPRESS program rules and ELITE EXPRESS program details contained in other materials (including, without limitation, any point of sale, online, or print advertising), the details of the ELITE EXPRESS program as set forth in these ELITE EXPRESS program rules shall prevail.
The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these ELITE EXPRESS program rules shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision. In the event that any provision is determined to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable or illegal, these ELITE EXPRESS program rules shall otherwise remain in effect and be construed in accordance with their terms as if the invalid or illegal provision were not contained herein.
