5. Member: TYPES
Generally, ELC distinguish between four member types, the "Private Member", the "Business Member", the "Business Premium Member" and the "Union Leader".
- The "Private Member" is reserved for individuals (customers).
- The "Business Member" is for self-employed persons and companies who cooperate with ELC.
- The "Business Premium Member" is an expanded form of the "Business Member" with much more rights and benefits.
- "Union Leaders" are specially group, respectively region managers (very similar to franchisees).
5.1. Private Member, Business Member or Business Premium Member
Each registered person or company is always and in any case a "Private Member". Under this heading, ELC understands all those members who do not themselves cooperate in any way with ELC (eg, offering products or services through ELC) and are therefore particularly interested in the special benefits of the community.
A „Business Member“ will of course always also be a „Private Member“ (consumer) and participate in the respective rights, but is additionally one who produces and/or trades in goods or provides services and is interested in becoming or is already a permanent partner of ELC who (will) sell/s products or services in the community shop and/or accept the „Purchase Price Refund Card“ of ELC in his/her own shop(s).
A "Business Premium Member" always has the same permissions as a "Private Member" and a "Business Member", but is additionally entitled to participate in further, more exclusive services.
Both, a „Business Member“ and a "Business Premium Member" have to offer and guarantee a special rebate in the hight of minimum 15% (fiveteen percent) to ELC. Therefore all types of business members will benefit from all the respective marketing opportunities of ELC and thereby achieve high profit maximization.
A registrant interested to become a "Business Member" or "Business Premium Member" has to inform ELC already during the first-time registration about the readiness and willingness to grant a permanent rebate of minimum 15% (fiveteen percent) or, if possible even higher to ELC.
In case a "Business Member" or a "Business Premium Member" will take over the shipping independently, after a successful and serious cooperation of minimum one business year and unless otherwise agreed or impartet, ELC will pay each customer order which will be forwarded to the both types of business member for delivery immediately upon forwarding the order (hence in advance). During the first year of cooperation the respective payment of each customer order will only be forwarded after a copy of the shipping confirmation can be shown (sent by email). In case a "Business Member" or a "Business Premium Member" agrees with ELC that the shipping has to be handled by ELC or a fulfilment partner of ELC, the payment will be forwarded immediately after ELC, respectively the fulfilment partner received the respective product(s).
The guaranteed rebate, as well as the additional fees in case ELC has to take care for the shipping, will always be automatically deducted (subtracted) on every payment (at/with the direct transfer) of ordered products or services, however this will take place.
A later upgrade from "Private Member" to a "Business Member" or from "Business Member" to "Business Premium Member" or any form of will be possible at any time. In case a member wish a later upgrade or downgrade a short inquiry by email is sufficient. In the case of an upgrade to a "Business Premium Member", the respective fees for this type of membership in the amount of $1,200 (one thousend and two hundred US dollars) must be paid. In the case of a downgrade from a "Business Premium Member" to one of the other possible member types no refund of the payment will take place. In case of any downgrade the respective higher rights (permissions) will be revoked and possible products and/or services already presented in the shop of ELC or stored video of a "Live Shopping Show" as well as placed free targeted ads will be removed/deactivated.
5.2. "Business Member" Specials
As already elucidated are both types of business members in effect also "Private Member", thus automatically entitled to all the respective rights of a "Private Member", but they are simultaneously producers, vendors or retailers of products or services.
Both types of business members cooperate with ELC either by offering parts or all of their products and/or services in the ELC online shop or accepts the ELC membership card, respectively the "Purchase Price Refunding Card" in their local shop(s). Both types of business members may also take advantage of both the online shop and the acceptance of the membership card in their shop(s).
During registration, the interested may choose either to offer products/services in the ELC online shop, or accepting the membership card in the local shop(s), or both.
At the same time, means already during the registration, the interested must also submit information about the main products/services wished to be offered via/at ELC.
Finally, any interested has to guarantee ELC a permanently minimum rebate of USUALLY 15% (fiveteen percent) on all products/services wished to offer via ELC at any time (during the complete membership).
For cases, means for special industries where 15% (fifteen percent) discount are definitely NOT possible and another discount is proposed during the registration, ELC will usually - unless it isn't a ridiculous offer - after appropriate consultation and due to the possibility of a mixed calculation (for the "Purchase Price Refunds) also accept.
If, however, it does not come to an agreement (eg due to an actually too small offer, although the industry / industry would allow it), ELC will reset the respective interested parties to the level of a "Private Member". In case this would happen to a registration of an "Business Premium Member", the possibly already paid fees will be returned immediately (credited to the member account).
Although usually an immediate activation of a business membership will take place and thus give access to the shop and all other services, ELC will verify the registration and especially the products/services after the registration. In case of any problems, questions or in case ELC will not accept the interested party or especially the planned offer (the offered products/services) ELC will contact the new "Business Member" for a detailed clearing up.
Principally, no applicant will be rejected, unless the offer does not meet some required standards. If, despite all efforts, no cooperation can be entered into, the new "Business Member" will continue as a "Private Member".
If cooperation does take place, respectively will continue without any necessary clarifications, the necessary measures for acceptance of ELC membership card and/or the placement of the offer in the online shop must take place within 30 days of the final agreement, respectively final confirmation and administrative release. If the new business member wishes to place offers in the online shop, then he will receive the respective access privileges and instructions, with which he can independently place/insert, change and renew these offers (products/services). After first insertion of products/services in the online shop of ELC any kind of changes, enhancements, updates, removals and/or new additions up to the maximum allowed number according to the respective member status can be made completely independently at any time.
If ELC accepts a cooperation, the respective business member automatically accepts
preferably - no obligation but promotionally extremely effective - to place a link or a linked button, linking to the ELC web portal, texted and/or designed and offered by ELC only - on his own internet site (in case one exists - otherwise free web space as well as complete sites can be offered by ELC upon request) as well as to implement the same sign in his/her further advertising materials;
that the goods traded, offered or accepted by ELC may in no case be much more expensive than the standard price or the price offered in an own shop(s). Excepted are short-term special offers, although the ELC members should naturally also participate in these purchases, and therefore related adjustments even temporary ones - must be made in the online shop. If ELC find out that the price of a product/service offered by a business member is exceeded on multiple occasions, ELC, after two warnings, reserve the right to end the cooperation immediately
and especially and utmost important
never (at NO time) to use any member data, e.g. addresses, emails or phone numbers as well as any other data of (a) members(s), forwarded by ELC for the purpose of product shipments or similiar, for own (marketing) purposes and, for example, to contact (a) respective member(s) by phone, via email (newsletter), printmedia advertising or similar as long as (a) respective member(s) has/have made a direct contact (by himself) and agreed in such approaches.
As long a member don't already personally know, don't already have or had direct contact or even invited a business member, any information flow (for example, questions regarding the orders or the like) has to be unwound exclusively via ELC.
Also, and especially the transfer of member data to third parties whitout any confirmation by the respective member is strictly prohibited.
If ELC disclose or a member reports such a violation, ELC not only not only rejects any legal responsibility, but also cancel this membership with immediate effect and without any continued payment of commissions or similar. In the event of such a breach, the respective "Business Member" acknowledges/declare his independent and solely legal responsibility and hold ELC legally completely harmless.
6. Member: STEPS
Member Steps (increase of emoluents):
Except the "Union Leader" all forms of memberships, the "Private Member", the "Business Member" as well as the "Business Premium Member" start as BASIC member and will receive the basic emoluments.
This BASIC starting position of each member can - entirely voluntary – be increased by simple onetime invitations of friends or business partners.
All is definitely based on NO WORK and NO SALES! ELC members just need - as with other social media, communities or networks - to register and to invite friends to join the community.
This increase corresponds to the respective member steps as follows:
- Basic = standard membership (new member immediately after registration);
- Step 1 = standard membership plus one invited friend/partner;
- Step 2 = standard membership plus two invited friends/partners;
- Step 3 = standard membership plus three invited friends/partners;
- Step 4 = standard membership plus four invited friends/partners
- Step 5 = standard membership plus five invited friends/partners.
The higher the respective increase (steps) attained, the higher the percentage of all emoluments.
Not only that a member receive higher percentage of all emoluments the higher the respective step is he attained, for "Business Member" it is very interesting to invite suppliers to become "Business Members" at ELC. This would lead to the fact that the "Business Member" will receive discounts or even refunds on his merchandising, work and office equipment and even business investments and simultaneous will get access to thousands of potential clients who are interested in receiving discounts or refunds when they shop for products or order services of the "Business Member".
A successful referral (successful invited friend/partner) arises whenever an existing member invites a completely NEW member - a friend who was not (never before) a community member and this person or business register as a new member. Friendship invitations within the community among existing members are not counted as successful invitation and are not entitlement to any payment.
Each member should successfully invite at least five friends (there is no upper limit) only once to reach the highest level and payments.
Should one of the successful invited members cancel the membership, and the total number of members of the one who invited him will become less than before (only starting from five invited members upwards) he fall back to the next lowest step and of course only receive the respective payments or usage rights for this step. In such case, a member will be immediately notified and will always have the possibility to invite one or more additional members and regain his previous status.
Placement to lower steps in the program - as long as there is no obvious abuse of the system, by which one or more members recruit members only to meet the higher refunding criteria and then cancel their registrations in the following years - affect only future purchases from the point of this downgrade and not the refund status of previous purchases. Normally, in case of serious cooperation - there is absolutely no retroactive downgrading.
7. Permission Tables
The access and/or placement/insertion rights differ depending on the member type "Private Member", "Business Member" or "Business Premium Member".

8.7. Special Emoluments
For more active - fully voluntary - collaboration of a member, for example in our online newspaper, online radio, online TV or endless novel, a member will get - of course in addition to the usual remuneration - special (higher) emoluments.
We are interested in following forms of collaboration:
Newspaper and radio: any local, national or international news, editorial reports on a variety of topics, professional, technical, economic, financial, environmental, scientific, social, political, and similar novelties and / or developments, sports news, entertainment, tales, comics and similar.
TV: the same news and topics as for the newspaper and the radio (see above) but additionally any kind of shows, soaps, sitcoms, movies, videos and other more.
The endless book, a specialty of ELC which will be implemented later on and where one author starts with a novel and continues in writing (chapter for chapter). At each new chapter another interested and entitled writer/author can now begin to continue with his own new novel as long as the previous chapters of the other authors match the new ongoing story and so on and on.
Thus not only causes in an endless novel, but also opens all (new, young) authors the chance to earn money already during the writing (quasi beginning with the first chapter).
Games/Software: any kind of online games, especially multiplayer games as well as different software developments are welcome.
Caution - important disclaimer: we definitely are not interested in and will not publish/implement erotic, pornographic, morally offensive, racist content (articles/segments) and war games!
A registered member who's interested in such a form of collaboration may use our contact form (the contact according to the cooperation wish/project, newspaper, radio, tv, book) and tell us about his wish/project.
After ELC received such an iquiry, ELC will get back in touch with with the member within about five workdays and agree a detailed online meeting/discussion.
In case ELC agrees in a(n) idea/concept/project, the member will get the allowance to start right away.
The additional special emoluments for such a collaboration:
ELC offers two options that can even come to fruition at the same time.
Congenial to the segment/story/game ELC will place advertisements in the respective news/reports (newspaper), on the pages (book) or commercials during the broadcasts (radio or TV), in/onto the game or similar and the member will receive - in addition to the general participation in our advertising revenue - 20% of the respective insertion(s).
Of course more than only one insertion can take place during one broadcast or in one novel/report, what would grant the member multiple commissions.
As an entitled editor, broadcaster, author, game developer or similar a member is also entitled to market/sell his own advertising/commercials and ELC will insert it in the respective article/segment/game.
For example - just as ideas:
A member may contact companies who offer exact the service(s)/product(s)/invention(s) or similar he is writing about in our newspaper and offer the possibility to advertise with him.
A member may broadcast his own news or show in a nice bar, a restaurant, a hotel, a leisure facility, at any kind of special event and not only sell commercials to the respective operator/manager/organizer, but to most of all cooperating, matching or local businesses and much more.
Both above described options, multiple insertions from the side of ELC as well as those the member sold can be placed at the same time.
8.8. Effect of all remuneration
By the means of all emoluments it is possible for a member to create a secondary or even chief income as well as a secondary or even chief pension as long as his membership maintains, if he want so for life. All only through one-time marketing for ELC, means: the one-time invitation of friends. There exist no limits, a member may invite as much friends as he wants.
If a member's membership continued until his death, his heirs are entitled to continuing commission payments. A member just has to invite four to five (or more) friends once and he will leave behind an interesting inheritance for your heirs.
PURCHASE PRICE REFUNDS
9. "Purchase Price Refunding" Program
All members are entitled to participate in the "Purchase Price Refunding" program of ELC.
All members are entitled to decide at the end of a purchase and after the respective rebate was credited to the member account to participate in the "Purchase Price Refunds" of 80% (eighty percent) of the respective amount of points he add to the "Purchase Price Refunding".
In case a member reached step 5 and minimum one of his successfully invited friends signed up as a "Business Member" or a "Business Premium Member", he is entitled to receive 100% (one hundred percent) of the price of the respective points he add to the "Purchase Price Refunding".
Each member can completely voluntary decide whether he adds his credited rebate to the "Purchase Price Refunding" program or not.
The participation in the "Purchase Price Refund" program is always fully voluntary.
9.1. Function and impact of the "Purchase Price Refund" program
The "Purchase Price Refund" program is designed and developed for clever and for the long term calculating members who not only want to achieve the highest possible profit, but at the same time want to make a major contribution to our ecology, respectively support a clean and healthy future environment.
One of the utmost important facts is: we don't charge our international business member to enter our "Purchase Price Refund" program. The access to this program is granted to all business members for free and works automatically in return of the rebate they grant.
We - fully voluntarily - pay over the greater portion of the rebates, margins or commissions from each product a customer orders to special investments mainly in form of multiple pre-IPO ECO investments (our "Re-Investment System") where we buy in at high discounts and/or multiple revenue sharing in ECO businesses.
It principle functions similarly to any capital investment. However, on the basis of pre-IPO investments with high discounts and/or revenue sharing, we attain much higher returns than with normal investments, predominantly standard stock ventures or similar investments.
From the profit we achieve a part is, starting with the second year after adding a rebate to the "Purchase Price Refunding" program, permanently (annually) paid to the members and another part flows back in the form of renewed investments, developing into steadily increasing capital. In other words: with one and the same investment sum, we lay claim to more and more of the company's turnovers each year and the returns increase accordingly.
The "Purchase Price Refund" pogram is NOT done automatically.
Members may - fully voluntarily - choose, whether they want to retain the discount granted or whether they wish to join the "Purchase Price Refund" system.
The "Purchase Price Refund" program is always only possible instead of the deduction / reuse of a granted discount. This means that every rebate of every purchase is always credited to the respective member account. After this, each member can use the cashout form to decide whether the "Purchase Price Refund" program for the respective purchase is desired or not. If this is not desired immediately after purchase, or if the discount granted was used for further purchases or a cashout of the (accumulated) discount was requested in cash, no "Purchase Price Refunding" can be made.
The decision must always be with, respectively immediately after every purchase: discount or "Purchase Price Refunding".
The "Purchase Price Refund" program has been conceived and developed for clever and long-term thinking / calculating members who want to achieve not only the highest possible profit but also a significant contribution to our environment.
The "Purchase Price Refunds" are based on the "Re-Investment" program, which was developed by the founder of ELC as early as 1986 and was tested both by mathematical faculties of various universities as well as by investment groups. In other words, starting with the second year after purchase, it is carried out in the form of annually increasing partial amounts until the corresponding percentage (up to 80%, ideally 100%) is completely refunded.
The complete reimbursement of the respective percentage is made in accordance with current economic conditions (2017) within around 10 to 12 years.
Members who decide to take advantage of the"Purchase Price Refund" program for themselves do not have to wait 10 to 12 years for their money. It is possible to use every annual credit / tranche immediately (starting with the first credit / installment) for new purchases or to request cashout of the respective amount in cash.
For legal purposes, it is forbidden for ELC (for any other company and / or organization other than banks and similar financial institutions too) to provide guarantees on the amount of the annual tranches and the length of the reimbursement.
However, ELC guarantees in any case that regardless of the amount of annual tranches and the duration of the"Purchase Price Refund" program, the respective percentage of up to 80% (ideally even 100%) of the purchase price will be refunded. In principle, the "Purchase Price Refund" program runs until the customer has returned the corresponding amount.
Example of a possible refund of a purchase price over 10 = years (with a purchase price of $ 1,000 and the ideal case of 100% refunding):
refund in $
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR "BUSINESS MEMBERS"
The most important fact for "Business Members" and "Business Premium Members" is: ELC does not calculate the international business members a single cent for carrying out the complete "Purchase Price Refund" program. The access to and the enormous advantages of the program is completely free for all business members. The program works completely automatically in the background and is based solely on the discounts granted.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ALL MEMBERS
Members who decide to join/use the advantage of the "Purchase Price Refunding" program don't have to wait 10 years for their money which will be annually added to their account.
It is possible to use any credit/installment for new purchases immediately (beginning with the first credit/installment).
The refund of a part of the total purchase price will commence already in the second year after the respective product or service was purchased in increasing annual part payments. After the first credit (two years after purchase), a member can not only see this online, but can also use it as credit for further purchases.
The purchase price refund (80%, ideally 100%) for products/services is valid for every purchase, respectively any points received, regardless of the amount. This starts with the cheapest and simplest product and the points received thereout, but for example can also be an expensive car at or even an exclusive real estate or more and the points received thereout.
The purchase price refund is also valid for products or services not recommended by ELC or not offered by a partner. A member can choose and suggest any product and/or service from any company and/or organization and invite the company and/or organization to become a business member of ELC or ask ELC for intermediation. Insofar as the chosen company cooperates with ELC, the member will also get those purchase prices refunded.
Cooperates the by the member suggested company with ELC - at the same time - the respective member has successfully invited a new "Business Member". Will the by the member suggested company not cooperate, ELC will suggest a company which provides the same or an equivalent product/service and already cooperates with ELC or is ready for an immediate cooperation.
The payments (refunds), which are made by ELC absolutely voluntarily, dependent on economic conditions. The table above shows one for the current economic situation (2017) realistic example but cannot be guaranteed.
The partial and annually increasing refund payments of the purchase price, which commence in the second year after purchase can vary as the program depends on the general economic situation and therefore the credit amount and amortization period cannot be guaranteed. It can be assumed that the average refund takes about ten years.
However, depending upon the economic situation, it may possibly take more time to refund the purchase price or it may lead to smaller annual dividends than those shown in the example table above.
Furthermore: due to official national statutory provisions it is prohibited for ELC (for any other company and/or organisation exept banks and similar institutions too) to publish any guarantees concerning the amount of the annual tranches and the length of the refund.
However, ELC guarantee in any case that, regardless of the annual tranches and the length of the refund, THE RESPECTIVE PERCENTAGE OF THE PURCHASE PRICE ACCORDING TO THE RESPECTIVE MEMBER STEP (in ideal case up to 100%) WILL BE REFUNDED. Fundamentally, the refund program is valid until the customer has been refunded the the respective amount.
There is absolutely no risk for either any type of business member (companies) or the 'Private Members' (customers). Business member don't have to pay anything and "Private Members" pay always more or less the same price as with other retailers (disregarding the slight differences that always vary from business to business).
9.2. Free Shopping
Sometimes ELC announces/advertises or is talking about: "Free Shopping".
Even a purchase price refund of 100%, what will take place in some cases (achievement of step 5, equal to minimum five successful invited fully new, not yet registered members and one of it a "Business Member") means "Free Shopping", after careful reading about our "Purchase Price Refunding" program one may think/argue that the purchase price is only refunded in increasing amounts over a period of about ten years, so ELC should not announce and/or talk about "Free Shopping".
To handle such or similar objections we designed a helpful hint in the form of an easily understandable example.
Assuming a member will constantly shop every single year for an average of about $ 1,000 (using our refunding system), following will happen:
shops for $
this year in $
|2||1,000||From 1st year $10||10|
|3||1,000||From 1st year $25
From 2nd year $10
|4||1,000||From 1st year $50
From 2nd year $25
From 3rd year $10
|5||1,000||From 1st year $75
From 2nd year $50
From 3rd year $25
From 4th year $10
|6||1,000||From 1st year $100
From 2nd year $75
From 3rd year $50
From 4th year $25
From 5th year $10
|7||1,000||From 1st year $150
From 2nd year $100
From 3rd year $75
From 4th year $50
From 5th year $25
From 6th year $10
|8||1,000||From 1st year $170
From 2nd year $150
From 3rd year $100
From 4th year $75
From 5th year $50
From 6th year $25
From 7th year $10
|9||1,000||From 1st year $200
From 2nd year $170
From 3rd year $150
From 4th year $100
From 5th year $75
From 6th year $50
From 7th year $25
From 8th year $10
|10||1,000||From 1st year $220
From 2nd year $200
From 3rd year $170
From 4th year $150
From 5th year $100
From 6th year $75
From 7th year $50
From 8th year $25
From 9th year $10
|Total refund after 10 years||3,320|
As can be seen, the member has not only already received $ 3,320 in refunds by the 10th year, but beginning with the 10th year he will get approximately the same amount back what he annually shop for.
But this is only a simple standard example. In case one will purchase a car, some furniture within such a ten-year process via ELC he would have reached an annual refund of already some thousand dollars.
That's why ELC of course may and will announce and/or talk about: "Free Shopping".
9.3. Permanent decrease of the "Purchase Price Refunding" for NON-SUSTAINABLE products/service
As can be read at §17 Our Philosophy, ELC is mainly interested to force the production, respectively the submission, the demand, the trade and the sale of sustainable products and/or service.
For fairness reasons and to offer all business, especially our business members the opportunity to adapt/change their assortment/offer, however, we allow all entrepreneurs and companies (business member) under ELC to be providing products / services via ELC.
But, starting two years after release, exactly with March 1st, 2019, we will permanently and regularly (every year) reduce the percentage of our "Purchase Price Refunding" program for products and/or service which can not be classified as sustainable and which are sufficiently available in sustainable form by 10% (ten percent). This belongs only to for products and/or service which are sufficiently available in sustainable form.
This reduction, executed per March1st, 2019 first time, in the future will always take place in minimum intervals of twelve month of exact 10% (in words: ten percent) at a time.
Every member, especially business members accept this regulation and therefore the corporate objective of without any subsequent objection. Already purchased products and/or service will never be affected of such reduction. Members will be informed about steps in this matter which will only become effective for future shopping. In case a member will not agree in such a reduction he might cancel the membership at any time and without prior notice.
10. Usage rights of stocks
Beside the automatically participation in the advertising revenue and all the other granted benefits, each member will - in addition to the usual benefits - receive free usage rights of stocks (the right to vote and the right to receive the annual dividend) worth $100 (one hundred United States Dollars) for the "Private Member", $500 (five hundred United States Dollars) for the "Business Member" and $2,000 (two thousand United States Dollar) for the "Business Premium Member".
The shares are available to the member exclusively for usage, but never go (at no time) in its possession. The member will receive a certificate with regards to the issued usage rights.
11. BLOCKCHAIN NETWORK - TOKEN MONEY
A special mission of ELC is TO PROTECT ALL MEMBERS FROM A GLOBAL FINANCIAL CRASH.
That's why ELC is offering a fully independent alternative option of a unique, globally valid TOKEN MONEY, named POINT and/or ELC. This alternative is currently handled via BITPAY, a global bitcoin payment service provider headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia (official website: https://bitpay.com/), but within the shortest possible time (still in the first half of 2017), ELC will set up its own blockchain server and offer this service itself and integrate it into the ELC portal.
However, already now, but also in the future after the integration of our own blockchain network, one POINT, respectively one ELC is and will always be equivalent to one US dollar and any payment, no matter what currency can be converted to POINT's/ELC's.
Any member can purchase ELC with his usual default currency. Most of the services, especially the products and services in our shop and the "Live Shopping Show" are also offered in POINT's/ELC's. Credit balances and/or remuneration/emoluments, of whatever kind, are credited to the member account in POINT's/ ELC's.
Of course, any amount will be converted to and returned (debited from the account) by any whished standard currency.
In this way, all members - fully voluntarily - can make themselves more and more independent of the conventional, unstable currencies and protect themselves from the crash, since this currency is still valid after any shape of financial collapse.
12. Terms and Conditions for the shop and the "Live Shopping Shows"
13. Acceptance of Advertisement and Information
By registering, each member automatically agrees to receive periodically, usually bi-weekly, in exceptional cases weekly current information (newsletter or similar) from ELC.
Such newsletter usually contain information of innovations and specials at ELC“ newly added business members and their offers, new products and services, special offers and the like.
14. Mutual Fairness
Each registered person or business, as well as ELC, should practice general fairness. Especially business members should comply with all applicable laws when advertising or offering goods for sale and should earnestly uphold their membership. All members should refrain from doing anything that could compromise the reputation, image or goodwill of ELC or its members.
15. Cancellation of Membership
Each member may cancel his membership at any time with or without stating any reasons by simple e-mail message.
ELC will accept any dismissal in any case, whether justified or not, immediately (within one week at the latest) and delete the member data from the database.
The continuation of commission payments, or the continuation of the "Purchase Price Refunding " program does not take place in the event of a termination by the member. In the event of a termination by the member the "Purchase Price Refunding" and all other payments will be stopped with immediate effect.
A termination by ELC is usually not provided, except a member violates the provisions as declared in the individual paragraphs of this "Terms & Contitions" or a member harms ELC or members of ELC regarding the reputation or even economically.
However, also the following reasons may result in a termination with immediate effect by ELC:
In case ELC detects that a member invited several friends (up to five or more to achieve the option to participate in the highest possible discount or in the "Purchase Price Refunding" program as well as all other high payments) but this (his) friends remain totally or mostly inactive or are only active for a short time (e.g. they only register as a member but don't shop anything and/or don't invite further friends, are mainly inactive and similar) and the inviting member buys one or more high-priced product(s) or service(s) and especially decides to participate in the "Purchase Price Refunding" program and the recruited members cancel their membership shortly thereafter, which suggests that the followers were only invited for the purpose of achieving the highest possible benefits or even don't correspond to real people or companies, ELC will review the situation and in case the suspicion is true, not only terminate the membership with immediate effect, but also file a criminal complaint because of financial fraud at the court of the domicile of the respective member.
In particular, a termination with immediate effect, the cessation of any entitlements under this contract and the filling of a criminal complaint because of financial fraud at the court of the domicile of the respective member will definitely take place, if ELC detects, that a member invited, respectively registered by himself friends which do not correspond to real people or companies.
Both beforehand cited cases of financial fraud (points 13.1 and 13.2) can be easily ascertained and proven by ELC in multiple different ways.
ELC reserve the right to change all payment plans, the rules for optimal cooperation and these "Terms & Conditions" if this proves necessary due to economic and/or legal reasons or in the best interest of the parties. ELC will notify all registered persons and/or businesses of such changes by email as well as on the web site.
17. Transferral of Rights
A "Private Member" may not transfer his/her membership to a third party, unless the transferral of rights complies with an optimal cooperation and is confirmed by ELC in written form. In the case of business members, no limitations apply when the business changes hands, is sold or otherwise changes.
Each registered person or business is bound to uphold trade secrets during and after the respective cooperation.
19. Length and Cancellation of Membership
A cooperation/membership begins with the submission of the registration form. Membership is valid until a cancellation is made. If no cancellation is made, the membership automatically lasts for an unlimited period.
A member may cancel his/her membership at any time.
If a member breaks one of the rules or regulations contained in these "Terms & Conditions", ELC is entitled to dissolve the cooperation via email notification with immediate effect.
All forms of cancellation automatically result in the end of any payments.
20. Our Philosophy
All us of, however, share a common bond. One factor applies to all humans to varying extents: throughout our lifetimes, WE ARE CONSUMERS!
This leads us to the most important realization, the PROVEN FACT, that almost all of the problems facing our planet are based on our consumer behavior and on past and current market structures and/or economic orders.
From which follows: If most of our global problems stem exclusively from our form of consumerism and the global market economy that results from it (from resources, production and trade to waste), then these problems can only be solved through the market and the subsequent change in its structure.
Problems which result from our economy can only be solved by a change in its structure, if we want a long-term and efficient solution.
And that's exactly what we are working for when we support many very important mainly sustainable business and projects.
It's also the reason why ELC was initiated, created and released, because we want to attract as many people as possible, as fast as possible and of course worldwide to indirectly assist in the urgent necessity to do all for a clean environment and a human and social future world while combining the pleasant with the profitable.
As a matter of fairness, we allow also business which are not only/definitely operating in a human-ecological manner or which are not only/definitely offering sustainable products or services to cooperate with ELC (offer their products/services via ELC), to guarantee a fair chance to all and to provide a strong attraction change/adapt their corporate philosophy as well as product / service range accordingly within a reasonable period.
However, starting in March 1st, 2019 we will permanently and regularly (every year) reduce the percentage of our "Purchase Price Refunding" for products/services which can't be classified as sustainable and which are sufficiently available in sustainable form by 10% (ten percent).
This permanently reduction, will be executed per March 1st, 2019 first time and continue with further annual deductions of further 10% (ten percent).
Every member, especially business members accept this regulation and therefore the corporate objective of without any subsequent objection. Already purchased products and/or service will NEVER be affected of such reduction. Members will be informed about steps in this matter which will only become effective for future shopping. In case a member will not agree in such a reduction he might cancel the membership at any time and without prior notice. Existing refunding for already purchased products/service will of course also be continued after the cancelation of a membership.
21. Special Info for MLM/Networking Companies & Partners
The ELC portal (community) does not wish to become a multiplication platform for thousands of MLM and/or networking partners who are presenting one and the same product or service again and again, therefore only MLM or networking companies may become a "Business Member" or "Business Premium Member" only ONCE, but not standard partners.
This regulation belongs also to all our services, e.g. shop, TV shop, classifieds, jobs, real estates, auctions, news, radio & TV and so on. We will not allow multiple insertion of one and the same service(s) and/or product(s) from one and the same company by multiple persons, partners or similar.
22. Severability Clause
Should one or more of the provisions contained in these "Terms & Conditions" be or become invalid it shall not automatically invalidate the entire contract.
In such case the parties are encouraged to adapt the invalid provisions accordingly and/or to perform this agreement further in the best possible commercial sense.
23. Applicable Law and Place of Jurisdiction
For disputes arising from this agreement the territorial law and jurisdiction and the competent court of the present head office of ELC, New York City, New York, USA, shall be deemed agreed.
