4. Loyalty Rewards Program.
While a Member has no requirement to purchase products, a Member can ensure that the Member will receive monthly deliveries of dōTERRA products by enroling in the Loyalty Rewards Program (LRP) after the first month of enrolment. LRP eliminates the inconvenience of placing monthly orders manually. If the Member’s LRP Order is at least 50 Personal Volume (PV) points every calendar month, the Member is eligible to receive Product Credits each month. PV is the point value of products purchased by a Member in one calendar month. Not all products will generate PV points and PV does not include purchases of product with Product Credit. The PV of a product is clearly delineated on the Product Order Form. Product Credits are non-cash redeemable points that can be used to purchase dōTERRA designated products. Product Credits are granted as part of the LRP and in the discretion of the Company. After Member has been an LRP participant for 60 days, Member can redeem Product Credits to purchase full PV products. LRP
Product Credits can be redeemed for 12 months from the date of issue, after which they expire. The credits can be redeemed for a $3.00 NZD fee, for each 100 Product Credit redemption, by calling 1-800-411- 8151. Products purchased with LRP credits are not for resale, nor can such product be returned. Redemption orders have no PV and cannot be combined with other product orders. Product Credits have no cash redemption value and are not transferrable. All Product Credits will be cancelled if participation in the LRP program is cancelled. A Member’s primary LRP order may only be cancelled by calling the Company. Any subsequent LRP order can be cancelled online.
5. Resell of Products.

6. Limitation of Liability.
