7. Earning and Redeeming Rewards Points; Expiration of Reward Points:
Earning Rewards Points
Once approved as a member of the dpHUE Professional App/Portal hosted by Brand Ambassador, you will have the opportunity to earn rewards points! In addition to earning commissions, you will earn rewards points when your client places an order on dpHUE.com by clicking-through your unique referral link or entering your unique referral code at checkout. You will also earn rewards points 1) when you register your account at https://brandambassadorapp.net/forms/register/dphue/1 and are approved; 2) when you complete your account profile; 3) when you post or repost content on social platforms, such as Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter; 4) if your post is featured in the Spotlight feed within the Brand Ambassador App/Portal; and 5) if another approved Professional has identified you as a referee during their registration process. Each of these ways to earn has a specific number of rewards points associated with them as well as terms regarding how often they can be earned. We have the right to adjust, from time-to-time, the ways to earn rewards points, the number of rewards points earned for each activity, how often rewards points can be earned and other terms related to the rewards points. Within the Brand Ambassador App/Portal, rewards points are referred to as “Coins” and any reference to “Coins” means the rewards points referred to herein. For specific details on the ways to earn rewards points, the number of rewards points earned and how often the rewards points can be earned, please refer to the “Coin Table” within the Brand Ambassador App/Portal.
Redeeming Rewards Points
In order to redeem rewards points, visit the “Rewards” section of the Brand Ambassador App/Portal. In the “Rewards” section, you will find the rewards offered through the program, how many rewards points are required to redeem each of the rewards, and how many rewards points you have available. Each Reward has a stated “Price in Coins” which is considered the “Number of Rewards Points” needed to redeem that reward. We also state your “Available Coins” which represents the “Number of Rewards Points” you have currently. Within the Brand Ambassador App/Portal, rewards points are referred to as “Coins” and any reference to “Coins” means the rewards points referred to herein. Rewards are subject to change at any time and are available while supplies last.
Rewards Points Expiration
Rewards Points are reset to 0 every year on your anniversary date. Your anniversary date is the date you received an email or message from us stating you are approved. Any rewards points not redeemed in accordance with these Terms and Conditions by the applicable expiration date, will expire and be removed from your Account.
Taxation of Rewards
In accordance with guidance and rules from the Internal Revenue Service, in general, the rewards points are taxable to you at the time you earn the rewards points. The value of the rewards points issued during the year will be included on the Form 1099 that the Company sends you annually. The rewards points you earn will be included on the Form 1099 you receive even if you do not redeem the points during the applicable tax period. The value of each reward point may vary from time-to-time but the value will generally be between .025 and .03 cents per reward point. The "Rewards" section of the Brand Ambassador App/Portal includes the applicable value of a rewards point and will be updated from time-to-time if the value changes.
8. Returns: We reserve the right to adjust commissions and rewards points from time-to-time based on return activity associated with your clients’ Orders and your Account.
9. Payment of Earned Commissions: You must have a PayPal account to earn and receive commissions. dpHUE will pay any validly earned commissions to you within 1 business day after the close of the following month.

If you have not complied with these requirements, dpHUE will notify you of the missing information and you will have 30 calendar days from the date of such notice to provide such information to dpHUE. If you do not provide such information within the 30-day period, then you will no longer be eligible to earn or receive any commissions, including without limitation for any Orders prior to such date for which you have not satisfied the conditions to earn commissions.

You will have no authority to make or accept any offers or representations on our behalf. You will not make any statement, whether to a client or otherwise, that reasonably would contradict anything in this Section.
20. Dispute Resolution; Arbitration. Please review this Arbitration provision carefully. It provides that any dispute between us arising out of these Terms must be resolved by binding arbitration, to the extent permitted by applicable law. Arbitration replaces the right to go to court and the right to have a jury decide a dispute. Under this provision, your rights may be substantially limited in the event of a dispute. You may opt out of this Arbitration provision by following the instructions below.
By accepting these Terms, unless you opt out by following the instructions below, you agree that all disputes arising out of or in any way related to these Terms and/or your use of the App must be resolved by confidential, binding arbitration to the extent permitted by applicable law. To the extent permitted by applicable law, neither you nor dpHUE will have the right to litigate that dispute in court or to have a jury trial on that dispute. Pre-arbitration discovery will be permitted only as allowed by the arbitration rules referenced below. In addition, you will not have the right to participate as a representative or member of any class of claimants, unless any applicable law forbids the waiver of that right. The arbitrator's decision will generally be final and binding. Other rights that you would have in court may also not be available in arbitration. It is important that you read the entire arbitration provision carefully.
For purposes of this arbitration provision, “dispute” shall be construed as broadly as possible, and shall include any claim, dispute or controversy (whether in contract, regulatory, tort or otherwise, whether pre-existing, present or future and including constitutional, statutory, common law, intentional tort and equitable claims) arising from or relating to these Terms and/or your use of the App, including but not limited to payment or non-payment of alleged commissions; the actions of yourself, dpHUE, or third parties; or the validity, enforceability, interpretation, or scope of these Terms or this arbitration provision. The term “dispute” includes disputes brought as counterclaims, cross claims, or third-party claims. To the extent permitted by applicable law, disputes may not be brought as part of a class action or other representative basis. IF YOU DO NOT OPT OUT, THEN YOU WILL HAVE WAIVED YOUR RIGHT TO INITIATE OR PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. In this arbitration provision, the words “we,” “us,” and “our” shall include dpHUE and any assignees of any of dpHUE’s rights, as well as dpHUE’s and its assignees’ respective affiliates, parents, subsidiaries, franchisees, vendors, suppliers, and further assigns.
Any arbitration under this Arbitration provision shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its rules applicable to the resolution of consumer disputes in effect when the dispute is initiated. Those rules are available at www.adr.org/rules or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The arbitrator shall have no authority to hear any disputes on a class or representative basis. Neither you nor dpHUE may consolidate or join the disputes of other persons who may have similar disputes into a single arbitration. Any arbitration hearing that you attend will take place in the federal judicial district where you reside. dpHUE will not elect arbitration of any dispute that is filed as an individual matter by you in a small claims or similar court, so long as the dispute is pending on an individual basis in that court.
A single, neutral arbitrator will decide any disputes. The arbitrator must be either a retired or former judge or a lawyer with no less than 10 years’ experience, selected in accordance with the AAA's rules. The arbitrator will apply applicable substantive law consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) and applicable statutes of limitations, will honor claims of privilege under applicable law, and will have the power to award to a party any damages or other relief provided under applicable law. Any party may choose to have a hearing and may choose to be represented by counsel. The arbitrator will issue an award in writing and, upon request, will provide a written explanation for the award. Judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.
The party initiating an arbitration must pay the AAA’s initial filing fee, although you can ask the AAA to waive the filing fee and we will consider your request that we pay the filing fee on your behalf. dpHUE will pay any subsequent administration fees imposed by the AAA, and dpHUE will pay the arbitrator’s fee for up to one day of hearings. All other fees will be allocated as provided by the AAA's rules and applicable law. If you prevail in arbitration, dpHUE will reimburse you any fees paid to the AAA. However, even if dpHUE prevails, it will not seek reimbursement from you of any fees dpHUE paid to the AAA unless the arbitrator determines that your dispute was brought in bad faith. Each party shall bear its own costs of attorneys, experts, and witness fees, regardless of which party prevails in the arbitration. However, if applicable substantive law gives you the right to seek reimbursement of attorneys’ fees or other fees or costs, then that right shall also apply in the arbitration.
You have the right to opt out of this arbitration provision, but you may only do so within thirty (30) days of acceptance of these Terms. In order to opt out, you must provide us written notice via email: email@example.com. You must inform us of your decision to opt out, and sign the notice. This arbitration provision shall survive termination by either party of this Agreement between you and dpHUE. This arbitration provision is made in connection with interstate commerce, and shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 USC Sections 1 through 16.
If any specific part of this Section 20 is determined to be void or unenforceable, the remainder of this Section 20, and these Terms, will remain enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by law.
21. Independent Investigation: You acknowledge that you have carefully read these Terms and agree to each term and condition contained herein. You understand that we may at any time sell Products on terms that may differ from those contained in these Terms.
22. Responsibility for Taxes: You are solely responsible for all taxes arising from any commission or other amounts paid to you pursuant to these Terms. Neither federal, nor State, nor local income tax, nor payroll tax of any kind, will be withheld or paid by dpHUE on your behalf. You understand that you are responsible for paying, according to law and in a timely manner, any applicable taxes or withholding amounts.
23. Other Provisions:
dpHUE may give notice by means of a general notice on pros.dpHUE.com or by electronic mail to your email address. You may give notice to dpHUE via electronic mail to Info@dphue.com, or by written communication sent by first class mail or pre-paid post to our registered agent for service of process at DMP Color, LLC d/b/a dpHUE 60 South 6th Street, Suite 3900 Minneapolis, MN 55402. Notice shall be deemed to have been given upon the expiration of 48 hours after mailing or posting (if sent by first class mail or pre-paid post) or 12 hours after sending (if sent by email or telephone).
General; No Assignment Permitted by You.
You may not assign these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without dpHUE's prior written approval. dpHUE may assign these Terms without your consent to: (i) a subsidiary or affiliate; (ii) an acquirer of dpHUE's equity, business or assets; or (iii) a successor by merger. Any purported assignment in violation of this Section is void. No joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you, dpHUE or any third party as a result of these Terms or use of the Services. If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision shall be struck and the remaining provisions shall be enforced to the fullest extent under law. dpHUE's failure to enforce any right or provision in these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to by dpHUE in writing.
The agreement created between us by these Terms will begin upon your acceptance of the Terms and will end when terminated by either of us. Either you or dpHUE may terminate these Terms at any time and for any reason, with or without cause, by giving the other party written or electronic notice of termination. Upon termination of these Terms, (1) all licenses and permitted uses hereunder shall terminate, and (2) you will immediately quit using the Services, and (c) Sections 1, 3, 4, 5, 8, 9, 10, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22 and 23 of these Terms will survive such termination. dpHUE may determine that you have not earned, and therefore you will not be paid, commission payments at termination if dpHUE, in its sole discretion, believes explicit provisions of these Terms have been breached or violated by you.
Scope of Terms.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement and understanding between us with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersede all prior or contemporaneous written or oral agreements or representations between us.
You expressly agree and acknowledge that your breach of these Terms may cause irreparable harm to dpHUE, and that a remedy at law would be inadequate. Therefore, in addition to any and all remedies available at law, dpHUE will be entitled to seek an injunction or other equitable remedies in all legal proceedings in the event of any threatened or actual violation of any or all of the provisions hereof.
In the event any action is commenced to construe or enforce any provision of these Terms, the prevailing party, in addition to all other amounts such party shall be entitled to receive from the other party, shall be entitled to receive its reasonable attorneys' fees and costs incurred in bringing such action.
Governing Law, Jurisdiction, and Venue.
These Terms are governed by the laws of the State of Minnesota, without reference to its conflict-of-law principles. Any dispute (as that term is defined in Section 20) arising out of or relating to these Terms or your use of the Services must be brought as set forth in Section 20.
Choice of Law.
These Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Minnesota, U.S.A., without giving effect to any of Minnesota’s conflict of law principles.
If any provision of these Terms or application thereof to any party or circumstances is determined to be invalid and unenforceable to any extent, any remaining valid and enforceable portion of that provision, and the remainder of these Terms, shall not be affected thereby, and any remainder of that provision and all other provisions herein shall remain valid and shall be enforced to the fullest extent permitted by law.
Our failure to enforce your strict performance of any provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of our right to subsequently enforce such provision or any other provision of these Terms. The failure of either party to enforce any right or remedy shall not be deemed a waiver of said right or remedy.
