Conflicts of interest

Leveraging STAG’s intellectual property, or any contacts (including customers and other STAG Independent Sales Representatives) obtained through the promotion of STAG’s products or Independent Sales Representative opportunities, to benefit another non-STAG venture of any kind is strictly prohibited.

Cross Marketing: Promoting other companies or products together with STAG products is strictly prohibited.

Cross Promoting: Attempting to recruit STAG Independent Sales Representatives for other direct selling business ventures, either directly or through a third party, and even if STAG Independent Sales Representatives proactively contact you about it is strictly prohibited.

Selling to other Independent Sales Representatives: You may sell STAG products to other STAG Independent Sales Representatives, but you may advertise items for sale only in one-to-one communication. STAG will not be involved in resolving disputes related to your buying from and selling to other Independent Sales Representatives.

Customer information

Your customer database and the information you obtain from customers is to be used solely for promoting STAG products. It may not be sold, copied, or distributed to any person, Independent Sales Representative, or entity for any reason.

Altering or tampering with labels and packaging is prohibited

You may not in any way repackage, re-label, or alter STAG products, nor the packages and labels on STAG products you sell. Tampering with labels and/or packaging could be a violation of federal and state laws and in some circumstances may result in civil liability. You may affix a personalized sticker or label with your personal/contact information to each product or product container, as long as you do so without removing or obscuring the existing product labels.

Targeting other direct sellers

You may not consciously target the sales force of another direct sales company for recruiting purposes. You may not solicit sales representatives from another direct sales company in ways that would cause these representatives to violate the terms of their contracts with their respective companies. Should you engage in these activities, you risk being sued by these other direct sales companies, and if any lawsuit, arbitration or mediation is brought against you, STAG will not pay any of your defense costs or legal fees, nor will STAG indemnify you for any judgment, award, or settlement.

SECTION 10: TERMS AND CONDITIONS

In this section, we’ll define your relationship with STAG, explain enforcement proceedings, and take measures to protect both you and STAG under this Agreement.

You must read, understand and agree to all of the terms, conditions, standards and procedures in this Agreement and ensure that you are operating in accordance with all federal, state, county, and municipal laws, ordinances, rules, and regulations.

You are not an employee, agent, partner, legal representative, or franchisee of STAG. You are an independent contractor of STAG Men’s Products, LLC. You will not be treated as an employee of STAG for federal or state tax purposes. You are solely responsible for paying local, state, and federal taxes on income generated as a STAG Independent Sales Representative.

Right to enforce

STAG has the right to enforce compliance with this Agreement. If STAG chooses, for whatever reason, not to enforce compliance in one or more instances, that does not mean STAG waives its right to enforce compliance with any portion of this Agreement, now or in the future.

Disciplinary action

If you are found in violation of this Agreement, or if STAG determines that you have engaged in or are engaging in any illegal, fraudulent, deceptive, or unethical business conduct, you may be subject, at STAG’s sole and absolute discretion, to disciplinary action, which could include the cancellation of your Independent Sales Representative account.

Compliance cases, including unreported violations, are private matters between STAG and the Independent Sales Representative(s) involved and are to be held strictly confidential. Discussing or sharing details of specific compliance cases, whether it is your case or someone else’s, in public or private forums, without STAG’s consent is strictly prohibited.

STAG determines, at its sole and absolute discretion, whether your activities and behaviors are deceptive, misleading, dishonest, or out of compliance with this Agreement.

It is your responsibility to stay informed of the latest terms of this Agreement.

Grievances and complaints

If you have a grievance or complaint with another Independent Sales Representative related to your STAG account, you may report to us the grievance or complaint in writing and we will investigate your claims.

Alternative dispute resolution and class action waiver

Any claim or grievance you have against STAG of any kind, including, but not limited to, economic losses, personal injury, or property damage, is subject to mediation at STAG’s corporate address using a neutral mediator of STAG’s choosing. In the event that you and STAG are unable to resolve the dispute through mediation, you and STAG agree to resolve the dispute in final and binding arbitration in the state of Texas. You agree not to file suit against STAG, any of its affiliates, subsidiaries, officers, directors, or employees.

You also understand and agree that you will not have the right to participate in a representative capacity or as a member of any class of claimants pertaining to any claim subject to arbitration. There is no right or authority for any claim you have against STAG to be arbitrated on a class action basis or on any basis involving claims brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or on behalf other persons or entities similarly situated. Claims brought against STAG may not be joined or consolidated with claims brought by anyone else.

The arbitration will take place before a single arbitrator (hereafter, “Arbitrator”) agreed upon by you and STAG. In the event that you and STAG are unable to reach an agreement on an Arbitrator, you and STAG will each select an arbitrator, and the two of them will select an Arbitrator residing in Ada County, Idaho, who will arbitrate the dispute. The arbitrators selected by you and STAG will have no further involvement in the arbitration. The party initiating arbitration will do so by submitting a written demand for arbitration to the other party. The receiving party must respond within 14 days by providing the claimant a list of proposed arbitrators. Within seven (7) days thereafter, you and STAG must either agree upon an Arbitrator or select an arbitrator for the purpose of appointing the Arbitrator. The dispute will be subject to rules of arbitration as determined by the Arbitrator.

You agree that in the event of any arbitration or litigation, you and STAG will each bear your own costs and attorneys’ fees regardless of who, if either you or STAG, is deemed the prevailing party. The foregoing notwithstanding, if either you or STAG commences an action in a court of law or equity and the responding party successfully moves such court to compel arbitration, the party who moved for the order compelling arbitration shall be entitled to recover its reasonable cost and attorneys’ fees incurred on the motion to compel from the other party. The decision of the Arbitrator will be final and binding on you and STAG and may be reduced to a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. This agreement to arbitrate survives any termination or expiration of this Agreement.

Nothing in this Agreement prevents STAG from applying to and obtaining from any court having jurisdiction a writ of attachment, a temporary injunction, preliminary injunction, permanent injunction or other relief available to protect STAG’s interest prior to, during or following the filing of any arbitration or other proceeding.

Any claim must be brought in arbitration within one (1) year from when the claim arises. By accepting this Agreement, you agree that no other statute of limitation applies.

If any provision of this alternative dispute resolution section is unenforceable, only the portion that is unenforceable shall be stricken, and all of the remainder of this alternative dispute resolution section shall be given full force and effect.

Governing law, jurisdiction and venue

Jurisdiction and venue of any dispute, whether or not subject to arbitration, shall reside in the state of Texas. The laws of the State of Texas govern all disputes in arbitration.

Survivability

It is specifically intended that all provisions, which by their terms are intended to survive the termination or cancellation of this Agreement.

Indemnification

You understand and agree that if you engage in any conduct prohibited by this Agreement, including, for example, and not limited to, uploading a video that infringes the copyright of a third party or disparaging a STAG competitor, such conduct may cause a third party to sue STAG. You understand and agree that if STAG is ever a defendant in any lawsuit related to anything you have done (or anything you did not do when you had a legal obligation to act), whether your action (or inaction) or the lawsuit occurs before or after cancellation or termination of this Independent Sales Representative Agreement, you will defend STAG in any such lawsuit and indemnify STAG for any damages, costs, attorney fees, and losses of any kind incurred in connection with such lawsuit.

You are fully responsible for all verbal and written statements made regarding STAG and its products that are not expressly contained in official STAG materials. You agree to hold STAG men’s Products, LLC and STAG employees harmless from any liability resulting from unauthorized representations or actions by you. This provision shall survive the cancellation of this Independent Sales Representative Agreement.

Limitation of liability

In the event that STAG is found liable to you for any reason, STAG’s maximum liability is the lesser of $7,500. In no event will STAG be liable to you for consequential or punitive damages, business losses, lost profits, or any other indirect damages of any kind or description.

Consent to freely use information and ideas

By entering into this Agreement, you authorize STAG to use your name, testimonials, and/or likeness in STAG advertising or promotional materials with no compensation. Additionally, you authorize the use and reproduction of any and all photographs or videos taken by or supplied to STAG and further consent to the use and reproduction of any quotes, testimonials, stories or conversations on social networking media for any print or electronic publicity, marketing, or promotional purposes without compensation.

STAG does not compensate you or others for submissions of business, product or creative ideas or materials. Unless otherwise specified in writing, this policy also applies for submissions made as part of any STAG contests, promotions, or incentives. All submissions and all contest, promotion, or incentive submissions are the property of STAG. STAG is not obligated to keep any information confidential and may use or disclose any information for any purpose without further permission from you and without any payment to you.

Severability

If any provision of this 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 this Agreement will remain in full force and effect.

Your personal information

STAG makes every reasonable effort to keep your personal information, including, but not limited to, your personal information, protected from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Such information is provided to STAG personnel only on a need-to-know basis. STAG will provide personal information in response to government inquiries, subpoenas, and other legal requests. Disciplinary actions may also be disclosed when appropriate.

Delays

STAG is not responsible for business delays due to circumstances beyond its reasonable control, such as the actions or failures of third parties, labor strikes, and difficulties, riots, war, fire, natural disasters, death, curtailment of a party’s source of supply, government decrees or orders.

Term

This Agreement will be valid for one year from the date you join STAG and will automatically renew for subsequent one-year periods unless you or STAG cancel this Agreement.

Integration

This Agreement represents the entire Agreement between you and STAG concerning the subject matter contained herein and supersedes any oral agreements or promises. In the event that the terms and conditions of this Agreement conflict with the terms and conditions of any other written agreement between you and STAG, the terms and conditions of this Agreement shall control. In the event the terms and conditions of this Agreement do not conflict with the terms and conditions of any other written agreement between you and STAG, the terms of both agreements will be fully effective and enforceable.
