ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY

'Zero Tolerance' means not allowing any undesirable behavior to continue and imposing restrictions/penalties against Direct Sellers found indulging in such adverse and unacceptable behavior

The VISIONROOTS Zero Tolerance policy addresses issues that can affect company's business and reputation. VISIONROOTS will not overlook any violation of this policy and no leniency shall be shown in dealing with a VISIONROOTS Direct Seller who is found to be in violation of this policy. Currently, following areas have been identified by VISIONROOTS as 'Zero Tolerance' areas. These are:

  • Selling and/or making available VISIONROOTS' products for sale through retail shops, unauthorized channels and online stores;
  • Unauthorized Direct Seller activity in any markets;
  • Quality Assurance Standards;
  • VISIONROOTS Business Guidelines for Direct Sellers;
  • Spamming prospects/customers using emails and other social media.
SELLING AND/OR MAKING AVAILABLE VISIONROOTS PRODUCTS FOR SALE THROUGH RETAIL SHOPS, UNAUTHORIZED CHANNELS AND ONLINE STORES.

VISIONROOTS markets its products through the direct selling channel under which the sale of products by a Direct Seller happens in a direct face-to-face interaction with the consumer. This sale takes place away from fixed locations like retail shops. Use of any alternate channels by Direct Sellers, for selling VISIONROOTS' products, violates the basic principle of Direct Selling and disturbs the level playing field provided to all Direct Sellers to do business. VISIONROOTS is committed to protecting the rights and opportunities of every VISIONROOTS Direct Seller. Hence our Rules prohibit Direct Sellers from selling products through retail shops, unauthorized channels and online stores. VISIONROOTS has adopted a Zero Tolerance Policy for sale through such alternate channels and reserves the right to take immediate action against violating Direct Seller/s on receipt of verifiable information. Additionally, Direct Sellers and Leaders need to consider following aspects as they build their business and help their down lines do the same:

Up lines must educate and encourage their down lines on the correct and ethical business building practices with a special emphasis on the 'Zero Tolerance' policy.

Direct Sellers who place orders for other Direct Sellers are responsible for the orders placed by them and these Direct Sellers need to be discreet so as to safeguard their business interest

In the best interest of all, up lines should encourage down lines to place their orders independently.

ACTIONS FOR NON-COMPLIANCE

Those who fail to comply or who have shown a disregard for the policy may be subject to one or more of the following actions:

a) Suspension of business activities and considerations.
b) Elimination from all GPB awards/ rewards.
