Members may not sell Vouchers through any means or method and may not encourage or facilitate any third party to sell Vouchers. All purchases of Vouchers must be done through the Site. For the avoidance of doubt, you may not list Vouchers for sale in online classifieds, online auction sites, or online retail sites. You also may not encourage any third parties to sell Vouchers through any of the listed means, or otherwise.
- Domain Names, email Addresses and Online Aliases
You are not allowed to use or register Moolala or any of Moolala’s trademarks, product names, or any derivatives, for any Internet domain name, email address, or online aliases. Additionally, you cannot use or register domain names, email addresses, and/or online aliases that could cause confusion, or be misleading or deceptive, in that they cause individuals to believe or assume the communication is from, or is the property of Moolala. Examples of the improper use of Moolala include, but are not limited to: www.moolaladeals.com, or Moolala showing up as the sender of an email.
- Online Classifieds
You may not use online classifieds (including Craigslist) to list, sell or retail Vouchers. If Moolala provides you with templates on the Site, you may use online classifieds (including Craigslist) for prospecting and informing the public about the Moolala Opportunity, provided the Moolala-approved templates/images are used. If Moolala does not make such templates available on the Site, then you may not use online classifieds to promote Moolala or the Moolala Opportunity.
- Banner Advertising
You may place banner advertisements on a website provided you use Moolala-approved templates and images. If Moolala does not provide you with a template for advertisements then you may not place any advertisements regarding the Moolala Opportunity or the Vouchers. Members may not use blind ads (ads that do not disclose the identity of the Company) or web pages that make product or income claims that are ultimately associated with Moolala or the Moolala Opportunity.
- Spam Linking
Spam linking is defined as multiple consecutive submissions of the same or similar content into blogs, wikis, guest books, websites or other publicly accessible online discussion boards or forums and is not allowed. This includes blog spamming, blog comment spamming and/or spamdexing. Any comments you make on blogs, forums, guest books etc. must be unique, informative and relevant.
- Digital Media Submission (YouTube, iTunes, PhotoBucket etc.)
Members may not upload, submit or publish Moolala-related video, audio or photo content that they develop or create. Members may not upload, submit or publish any content (video, audio, presentations or any computer files) received from Moolala or captured at official Moolala events or in buildings owned or operated by Moolala.
Sponsored links or pay-per-click ads (PPC) are not permitted under any circumstances.
- Domain Names and Email Addresses
Members may not use or attempt to register any of Moolala’s trade names, trademarks, service names, service marks, product names, the Company’s name, or any derivative of the foregoing, for any Internet domain name, email address, or social media name or address.
Social Media may be used by Members to share information about Moolala and for prospecting and inviting. However, Members who elect to use Social Media must adhere to the terms of this Agreement in all respects. If you are going to promote Moolala on any Social Media site then you must clearly identify yourself as an Independent Moolala Member, and when a Member participates in those communities, Members must avoid inappropriate conversations, comments, images, video, audio, applications or any other adult, profane, discriminatory or vulgar content. The determination of what is inappropriate is at Moolala’s sole discretion, and offending Members will be subject to disciplinary action. Members may not use blog spam, spamdexing or any other mass-replicated methods to leave blog comments. Comments Members create or leave must be useful, unique, relevant and specific to the blog’s article.
The term “Social Media” shall mean any type of online media that invites, expedites or permits conversation, comment, rating, and/or user generated content, as opposed to traditional media, which delivers content but does not allow readers/viewers/listeners to participate in the creation or development of content, or the comment or response to content. Examples of Social Media include, but are not limited to, blogs, FaceBook, MySpace, Twitter, LinkedIn, Delicious, and YouTube.
Members are personally responsible for their postings and all other online activity that relates to Moolala. Therefore, even if a Member does not own or operate a blog or Social Media site, if a Member posts to any such site that relates to Moolala or which can be traced to Moolala, the Member is responsible for the posting. Members are also responsible for postings which occur on any blog or Social Media site that the Member owns, operates, or controls.
- Identification as an Independent Moolala Member
- Social Media as a Promotion Forum
Social Media sites may not be used to explain the Moolala Opportunity. Likewise, Members shall not use any Social Media site to explain the Moolala Rewards Plan or any component of the Rewards Plan, unless Moolala provides you a tool for that express purpose on the Site. While you may not discuss the Moolala Opportunity, you may discuss Moolala and Vouchers on Social Media sites.
- Deceptive Postings
Postings that are false, misleading, or deceptive are prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to, false or deceptive postings relating to Moolala, the Moolala Opportunity, Vouchers, and/or your biographical information and credentials.
If you use the trademarks, trade names, service marks, copyrights, or intellectual property of any third party in any posting, it is your responsibility to ensure that you have received the proper license to use such intellectual property and pay the appropriate license fee. All third-party intellectual property must be properly referenced as the property of the third-party, and you must adhere to any restrictions and conditions that the owner of the intellectual property places on the use of its property.
Always respect the privacy of others in your postings. Members must not engage in gossip or advance rumors about any individual, company, or competitive products or services. Members may not list the names of other individuals or entities on their postings unless they have the written permission of the individual or entity that is the subject of their posting.
You must ensure that your postings are truthful and accurate. This requires that you fact-check all material you post online. You should also carefully check your postings for spelling, punctuation, and grammatical errors. Use of offensive language is prohibited.
- Prohibited Postings
- Is sexually explicit, obscene, or pornographic;
- Is offensive, profane, hateful, threatening, harmful, defamatory, libelous, harassing, or discriminatory (whether based on race, ethnicity, creed, religion, gender, sexual orientation, physical disability, or otherwise);
- Is graphically violent, including any violent video game images;
- Is solicitous of any unlawful behavior;
- Engages in personal attacks on any individual, group, or entity;
- Is in violation of any intellectual property rights of the Company or any third party.
- Responding to Negative Posts
Do not converse with anyone who places a negative post against you, other Members, or Moolala. Report negative posts to the Company at Media@Moolala.com. Responding to such negative posts often simply fuels a discussion with someone carrying a grudge that does not hold themselves to the same high standards as Moolala, and therefore damages the reputation and goodwill of Moolala.
- Social Media Sites with Website-like Features
Because some social media sites are particularly robust, the distinction between a social media site and a website may not be clear cut. Moolala therefore reserves the sole and exclusive right to classify certain social media sites as websites and require that Members using, or who wish to use, such sites adhere to the Company’s policies relating to independent websites.
- Unauthorized Claims and Actions
A Member is fully responsible for all of his or her verbal and written statements made regarding Moolala products, services, and the Rewards Plan that are not expressly contained in official Moolala materials. This includes statements and representations made through all sources of communication media, whether person-to-person, in meetings, online, through Social Media, in print, or any other means of communication. Members agree to indemnify Moolala and Moolala’s directors, officers, employees, and agents, and hold them harmless from all liability including judgments, civil penalties, refunds, attorney fees, court costs, or lost business incurred by Moolala as a result of the Member’s unauthorized representations or actions. This provision shall survive the termination of the Member Agreement.
- Income Claims
Because Moolala Members do not have the data necessary to comply with the legal requirements for making income claims, a Member, when presenting or discussing the Moolala Opportunity or Rewards Plan to a prospective Member, may not make income projections, income claims, or disclose his or her Moolala income (including, but not limited to, the showing of checks, copies of checks, bank statements, or tax records).
- Income Disclosure Statement
Moolala’s corporate ethics compel us to do not merely what is legally required, but rather, to conduct the absolute best business practices. To this end, we have developed the Moolala Income Disclosure Statement (“IDS”). The Moolala IDS is designed to convey truthful, timely, and comprehensive information regarding the income that Moolala Members earn. In order to accomplish this objective, a copy of the IDS must be presented to all prospective Members.
A copy of the IDS must be presented to a prospective Member (someone who is not a party to a current Moolala Member Agreement) anytime the Rewards Plan is presented or discussed, or any type of income claim or earnings representation is made.
The terms “income claim” and/or “earnings representation” (collectively “income claim”) include: (1) statements of actual earnings, (2) statements of projected earnings, (3) statements of earnings ranges, (4) income testimonials, (5) lifestyle claims, and (6) hypothetical claims.
A lifestyle income claim typically includes statements (or pictures) involving large homes, luxury cars, exotic vacations, or other items suggesting or implying wealth. They also consist of references to the achievement of one's dreams, having everything one always wanted, and are phrased in terms of “opportunity” or “possibility” or “chance.” Claims such as “My Moolala income exceeded my salary after six months in the business,” or “Our Moolala membership has allowed my wife to come home and be a full-time mom” also fall within the purview of “lifestyle” claims.
In any non-public meeting (e.g., a home meeting, one-on-one, regardless of venue) with a prospective Member or Members in which the Rewards Plan is discussed or any type of income claim is made, you must provide the prospect(s) with a copy of the IDS. In any meeting that is open to the public in which the Rewards Plan is discussed or any type of income claims is made, you must provide every prospective Member with a copy of the IDS and you must display at least one (3 foot x 5 foot posterboard) in the front of the room in reasonably close proximity to the presenter(s). In any meeting in which any type of video display is utilized (e.g., monitor, television, projector, etc.) a slide of the IDS must be displayed continuously throughout the duration of any discussion of the Rewards Plan or the making of an income claim.
Copies of the IDS may be printed or downloaded without charge from the corporate website at www.moolala.com/Docs/IDS.
At this time Moolala has not produced an IDS. Until such time as one is made available on the Site Members may not make any income claims or earnings representations.
- Conflicts of Interest
- Member Participation in Direct Selling Programs
Moolala does not permit Members to combine the Moolala Opportunity with direct selling programs. If a Member is engaged in a direct selling program, it is the responsibility of the Member to ensure that the direct selling program is operated entirely separate and apart from the Moolala Opportunity. To this end, the following must be adhered to:
- Members shall not display Moolala promotional material with or in the same location as, any non-Moolala promotional material or sales aids, products or services.
- Members shall not promote Moolala, the Moolala Opportunity, or Vouchers to prospective Members in conjunction with any non-Moolala program, opportunity, product or service.
- Members may not offer any non-Moolala opportunity, products, services or opportunity at any Moolala-related meeting, seminar, convention, webinar, teleconference, or other function.
- Confidential Information
“Confidential Information” means any Moolala confidential or proprietary information that is disclosed in any manner to you in connection with you Membership that is reasonably identifiable as confidential or proprietary information of Moolala. Confidential information includes, but is not limited to, the identities of Moolala Members, Members’ personal and group sales volumes, and other confidential information relating to Moolala’s business. Confidential Information is, or may be available, to Members. Confidential Information is confidential and constitutes proprietary information and business trade secrets belonging to Moolala. Such Confidential Information is provided to Members in strictest confidence. Members shall hold the Confidential Information in strict confidence and shall not disclose the Confidential Information to any third parties. Members shall not disclose the password or other access code to his or her password protected section of the Site. Member’s shall not use the Confidential Information for any purpose other than for the furtherance of the relationship of the Member and Moolala.
- Governmental Approval or Endorsement
Neither federal nor state regulatory agencies or officials approve or endorse any direct selling companies or programs. Therefore, Members shall not represent or imply that Moolala or its Rewards Plan have been "approved," "endorsed" or otherwise sanctioned by any government agency.
- International Marketing
Member’s may invite their friends in other countries to join, but Moolala is not available in all countries. Moolala may allow Members to register in certain countries where they are not yet selling Vouchers. In those countries, Members will not be eligible to earn rewards payments until Moolala begins selling Vouchers in their country.
- Adherence to Laws and Ordinances
Members shall comply with all federal, state, and local laws and regulations in the promotion of Moolala and the Moolala Opportunity.
- Actions of Household Members of Affiliated Parties
If any member of a Member’s immediate household engages in any activity which, if performed by the Member, would violate any provision of this Agreement, such activity will be deemed a violation by the Member and Moolala may take disciplinary action against the Member as set permitted by this Agreement. Similarly, if any individual associated in any way with a corporation, partnership, LLC, trust or other entity (collectively “Business Entity”) that is a Member violates this Agreement, such action(s) will be deemed a violation by the Business Entity Member and Moolala may take disciplinary action against the Business Entity. Likewise, if a Member enrolls in Moolala 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 this Agreement.
“Affiliated Party” shall mean any shareholder, member, partner, manager, trustee, or other parties with any ownership interest in, or management responsibilities for, a Business Entity.
- Sale, Transfer or Assignment of Moolala a Moolala PayMatrix
Although a Moolala business is a privately owned and independently operated business, the sale, transfer or assignment of a Moolala business, and the sale, transfer, or assignment of an interest in a Business Entity that owns or operates a Moolala business, is subject to certain limitations. If a Member wishes to sell his or her Moolala business, or interest in a Business Entity that owns or operates a Moolala business, the following criteria must be met:
- The selling Member must offer Moolala the right of first refusal to purchase the business on the same terms as agreed upon with a third-party buyer. Moolala shall have fifteen days from the date of receipt of the written offer from the seller to exercise its right of first refusal. Moolala shall have fifteen days from the date of receipt of the written offer from the seller to exercise its right of first refusal.
- The buyer or transferee must become a qualified Moolala Member. If the buyer is an active Moolala Member, he or she must first terminate his or her Moolala business and wait six calendar months before acquiring any interest in a different Moolala business;
- Before the sale, transfer or assignment can be finalized and approved by Moolala, any debt obligations the selling party has with Moolala must be satisfied.
- The selling party must be in good standing and not in violation of any of the terms of this Agreement in order to be eligible to sell, transfer or assign a Moolala business.
Prior to selling an independent Moolala business or Business Entity interest, the selling Member must notify Moolala’s Compliance Department in writing and advise of his or her intent to sell his/her Moolala business or Business Entity interest. The selling Member must also receive written approval from the Compliance Department before proceeding with the sale. No changes in line of sponsorship can result from the sale or transfer of a Moolala business.
- Separation of a Moolala Business
Moolala Members sometimes operate their Moolala businesses as husband-wife partnerships, regular partnerships, LLCs, corporations, trusts, or other Business Entities. At such time as a marriage may end in divorce or a corporation, LLC, partnership, trust or other Business Entity may dissolve, arrangements must be made to assure that any separation or division of the business is accomplished so as not to adversely affect the interests and income of other Members up or down the PayMatrix.
During the divorce or entity dissolution process, the parties must adopt one of the following methods of operation:
- One of the parties may, with consent of the other(s), operate the Moolala business pursuant to an assignment in writing whereby the relinquishing spouse, shareholders, partners or trustees authorize Moolala to deal directly and solely with the other spouse or non-relinquishing shareholder, partner or trustee.
- The parties may continue to operate the Moolala business jointly on a “business-as-usual” basis, whereupon all compensation paid by Moolala will be paid according to the status quo as it existed prior to the divorce filing or dissolution proceedings. This is the default procedure if the parties do not agree on the format set forth above.
Under no circumstances will the PayMatrix of divorcing spouses or a dissolving business entity be divided. Similarly, under no circumstances will Moolala split rewards payments between divorcing spouses or members of dissolving entities. Moolala will recognize only one Member and will only remit one payment the membership. Rewards payments shall always be issued to the same individual or entity. In the event that parties to a divorce or dissolution proceeding are unable to resolve a dispute over the disposition of rewards payments and ownership of the membership in a timely fashion as determined by Moolala, the Member Agreement shall be involuntarily canceled.
If a former spouse has completely relinquished all rights in the original Moolala membership pursuant to a divorce, he or she is thereafter free to enroll as a new Member at any time. In the case of business entity dissolutions, the former partner, shareholder, member, or other entity affiliate who retains no interest in the business may enroll as a Member at any time following the date of the final dissolution under any sponsor of his or her choosing. In either case, the former spouse or business affiliate shall have no rights to payments resulting from their previous membership (or the associated PayMatrix). They must develop the new business in the same manner as would any other new Member.
Upon the death or incapacitation of a Member, his or her business may be passed to his or her heirs. Appropriate legal documentation must be submitted to the Company to ensure the transfer is proper. Accordingly, a Member should consult an attorney to assist him or her in the preparation of a will or other testamentary instrument. Whenever a Moolala business is transferred by a will or other testamentary process, the beneficiary acquires the right to collect all bonuses and rewards payments of the deceased Member’s paymatrix provided the following qualifications are met. The successor(s) must:
- Execute a Member Agreement;
- Comply with terms and provisions of this Agreement;
- Meet all of the qualifications for the deceased Member’s status;
- The devisee must provide Moolala with an “address of record” to which all bonus and commission checks will be sent;
- If the business is bequeathed to joint devisees, they must form a business entity and acquire a Federal Taxpayer Identification Number. Moolala will issue all bonus and commission checks and one 1099 to the business entity.
- Transfer Upon Death of a Member
To affect a testamentary transfer of a Moolala business, the executor of the estate must provide the following to Moolala: (1) an original death certificate; (2) certified letters testamentary or a letter of administration appointing an executor; and (3) written instructions from the authorized executor to Moolala specifying to whom the business and income should be transferred.
- Transfer Upon Incapacitation of a Member
To effectuate a transfer of a Moolala business because of incapacity, the successor must provide the following to Moolala: (1) a notarized copy of an appointment as trustee; (2) a notarized copy of the trust document or other documentation establishing the trustee’s right to administer the Moolala business; and (3) a completed Member Agreement executed by the trustee.
- Telemarketing Techniques
The Federal Trade Commission and the Federal Communications Commission each have laws that restrict telemarketing practices. Both federal agencies (as well as a number of states) have “do not call” regulations as part of their telemarketing laws. Although Moolala does not consider Members to be “telemarketers” in the traditional sense of the word, these government regulations broadly define the term “telemarketer” and “telemarketing” so that your inadvertent action of calling someone whose telephone number is listed on the federal “do not call” registry could cause you to violate the law. Moreover, these regulations must not be taken lightly, as they carry significant penalties.
Therefore, Members must not engage in telemarketing in the operation of their Moolala businesses. The term “telemarketing” means the placing of one or more telephone calls to an individual or entity to induce the purchase of a Moolala product or service, or to recruit them for the Moolala opportunity. “Cold calls" made to prospective Members that promote either Moolala’s products or services or the Moolala opportunity constitute telemarketing and are prohibited. However, a telephone call(s) placed to a prospective Member (a "prospect") is permissible under the following situations:
- If the Member has an established business relationship with the prospect. An “established business relationship” is a relationship between a Member and a prospect based on the prospect’s purchase, rental, or lease of goods or services from the Member, or a financial transaction between the prospect and the Member, within the eighteen (18) months immediately preceding the date of a telephone call to induce the prospect's purchase of a product or service.
- You may call family members, personal friends, and acquaintances. An “acquaintance” is someone with whom you have at least a recent first-hand relationship within the preceding three months. Bear in mind, however, that if you engage in “card collecting” with everyone you meet and subsequently calling them, the FTC may consider this a form of telemarketing that is not subject to this exemption. Thus, if you engage in calling “acquaintances,” you must make such calls on an occasional basis only and not make this a routine practice.
Members shall not use automatic telephone dialing systems or software relative to the operation of their Moolala businesses. Members shall not place or initiate any outbound telephone call to any person that delivers any pre-recorded message (a "robocall") regarding or relating to the Moolala products, services or opportunity.
- SALES REQUIREMENTS
- Voucher Sales
The Moolala Rewards Plan is based on the purchase of Vouchers by end consumers. Members are not permitted to sell Vouchers under any circumstances.
- REWARDS PAYMENTS
- Rewards Payments Qualifications and Accrual
A Member must be active and in compliance with this Agreement to qualify for rewards payments. So long as a Member complies with the terms of this Agreement, Moolala shall pay rewards payments to such Member in accordance with the Moolala Rewards Plan. The minimum amount for which Moolala will issue a reward payment is $50. If a Member’s rewards payments do not equal or exceed $50, the Company will accrue the rewards payments until they total $50. Notwithstanding the foregoing, all rewards payments owed a Member, regardless of the amount accrued, will be paid upon the termination of a Member’s account.
- Adjustment to Bonuses and Rewards Payments
- Adjustments for Returned Vouchers
Members receive rewards payments based on the actual purchase of Vouchers by end consumers. When a Voucher is returned to Moolala for a refund, the rewards payments attributable to the returned Voucher(s) will be deducted from the Members who received rewards payments on the sales of the refunded Vouchers.
- Hard Copy Commission Checks
The Company pays rewards payments via a direct payment onto a pre-paid debit card. At the election of a Member rewards payments may be paid via direct deposit into a Member’s bank account. There is no charge for direct deposit. A Member may also request a hard-copy of a rewards payment check. The Company will deduct a $5.00 processing fee from each check issued.
- Tax Withholdings
If a Member who resides in the United States fails to submit a W-9 form, Moolala will deduct the necessary withholdings from the Member’s commission checks as required by law.
All information provided by Moolala in PayMatrix activity reports is believed to be accurate and reliable. Nevertheless, due to various factors including but not limited to the inherent possibility of human, digital, and mechanical error; the accuracy, completeness, and timeliness of orders; denial of credit card and electronic check payments; returned products; credit card and electronic check charge-backs; the information is not guaranteed by Moolala.
ALL SALES VOLUME INFORMATION IS PROVIDED "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, OR REPRESENTATIONS OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER. IN PARTICULAR BUT WITHOUT LIMITATION THERE SHALL BE NO WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR USE, OR NON INFRINGEMENT.
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMISSIBLE UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, MOOLALA AND/OR OTHER PERSONS CREATING OR TRANSMITTING THE INFORMATION WILL IN NO EVENT BE LIABLE TO ANY MEMBER OR ANYONE ELSE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES THAT ARISE OUT OF THE USE OF OR ACCESS TO PERSONAL AND/OR GROUP SALES VOLUME INFORMATION (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOST PROFITS, BONUSES, OR REWARDS PAYMENTS, LOSS OF OPPORTUNITY, AND DAMAGES THAT MAY RESULT FROM INACCURACY, INCOMPLETENESS, INCONVENIENCE, DELAY, OR LOSS OF THE USE OF THE INFORMATION), EVEN IF MOOLALA OR OTHER PERSONS CREATING OR TRANSMITTING THE INFORMATION SHALL HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, MOOLALA OR OTHER PERSONS CREATING OR TRANSMITTING THE INFORMATION SHALL HAVE NO RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY TO YOU OR ANYONE ELSE UNDER ANY TORT, CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, PRODUCTS LIABILITY OR OTHER THEORY WITH RESPECT TO ANY SUBJECT MATTER OF THIS AGREEMENT OR TERMS AND CONDITIONS RELATED THERETO.

- Income Taxes
Each Member is responsible for paying local, state/provincial, and federal/national taxes on any income generated as a Member. If a Member’s Moolala business is tax exempt, the Federal tax identification number must be provided to Moolala. Every year, Moolala will provide an IRS Form 1099 MISC (Non-employee Compensation) earnings statement to each U.S. resident who: 1) Had earnings of over $600 in the previous calendar year; or 2) Made purchases during the previous calendar year in excess of $5,000.

If a Member has questions about or believes any errors have been made regarding rewards payments the Member must notify Moolala in writing within 60 days of the date of the purported error or incident in question. Moolala will not be responsible for any errors, omissions or problems not reported to the Company within 60 days.
- Change of Referrer
Although a Member may cancel his or her membership at any time, Moolala strongly discourages canceling a membership and signing up under another Member. Accordingly, if you cancel your Membership and sign up under another Member, your PayMatrix that you built under your previous membership does not transfer with you.
- Multiple Accounts
There are no technical limitations preventing Members from signing up under multiple accounts. You will not receive rewards payments for the activity of Members who you referred to Moolala if the activity is done under a different account.

Prior to instituting an arbitration, the parties shall meet in good faith and attempt to resolve any dispute arising from or relating to this Agreement through non-binding mediation. One individual who is mutually acceptable to the parties shall be appointed as mediator. The mediation shall occur within 60 days from the date on which the mediator is appointed.

- Effect of Termination
Any termination of this Agreement shall result in the termination of a Members membership with Moolala. The former Member shall have no right, title, claim or interest in rewards payments for purchases by Members who were in the cancelling Member’s PayMatrix. A Member whose business is cancelled will lose all rights as a Member. This includes the right to receive future rewards payments.

Following the termination of this Agreement, the former Member shall not hold himself or herself out as a Moolala Member. A Member whose membership is terminated shall receive rewards payments only up to the date of the termination (less any amounts withheld during an investigation preceding an involuntary cancellation).

I authorize Moolala to use my name, photograph, personal story and/or likeness in advertising or promotional materials and waive all claims for remuneration for such use.
The Company never gives up its right to insist on compliance with this Agreement and with the applicable laws governing the conduct of a Member. No failure of Moolala to exercise any right or power under this Agreement or to insist upon strict compliance by a Member with any obligation or provision of this Agreement, and no custom or practice of the parties at variance with the terms of this Agreement, shall constitute a waiver of Moolala’s right to demand exact compliance with this Agreement. The existence of any claim or cause of action of a Member against Moolala shall not constitute a defense to a breach of this Agreement by such Member. Any waiver by Moolala of any breach of this Agreement must be in writing and signed by an authorized officer of Moolala. Waiver by Moolala of any breach of this Agreement by a Member shall not operate or be construed as a waiver of any subsequent breach.
