Any waiver by either party of any breach of the Agreement must be in writing and signed by the waiving 3 Think+ Terms & Policies v.1 (Jan 2023) party or an authorized officer or agent of the waiving party. Any waiver of a breach by a party shall be a one-time waiver only and shall not affect or impair the waiving party’s rights with respect to any subsequent breach.

Waiver of Right of Publicity. Energy Advisors grant Think+ an irrevocable license to reproduce and use their name, photograph, video, personal story, testimonial, and/or likeness in its advertising or promotional materials, including but not limited to use in online forums.

The severed provision shall be reformed so that it is in compliance with the law and reflects the purpose of the original provision as closely as possible. The existence of any claim or cause of action of an Energy Advisor against Think+ shall not constitute a defense to the Company’s enforcement of any term or provision of the Agreement. 16. Term and Renewal of the Agreement. The term of the Agreement is one year from the date of enrollment. An Energy Advisor may cancel the Agreement at any time and for any reason. In order to continue as an Energy Advisor beyond the initial term of this Agreement (unless the Agreement has been previously terminated as provided at Policy 48), Energy Advisors must renew the Agreement each year.

Should Energy Advisors engage in such activity, they bear the risk of being sued by the other multilevel, network marketing, or direct sales business or venture. If any lawsuit, arbitration or mediation is brought against an Energy Advisor alleging that he or she engaged in inappropriate recruiting activity of its sales force or customers, Think+ will not pay any of the Energy Advisor’s defense costs or legal fees, nor will Think+ indemnify the Energy Advisor for any judgment, award or settlement. • Actual or attempted cross-sponsoring is strictly prohibited. “Cross-sponsoring” is defined as the enrollment of an individual who, or entity that, already has a current customer or Energy Advisor Agreement on file with Think+ or Think, or who has had such an agreement within the preceding six calendar months, within a different line of sponsorship. The use of a spouse’s or relative’s name, trade names, DBAs, assumed names, corporations, partnerships, trusts, federal ID numbers or fictitious ID numbers to circumvent this policy is prohibited. Energy Advisors shall not demean, discredit or defame other Energy Advisors in an attempt to entice another Energy Advisor to become part of the first Energy Advisor’s marketing organization. This policy shall not prohibit the transfer of a Think+ business in accordance with Policy 50. If cross-sponsoring is discovered, it must be brought to the Company’s attention immediately. Think+ may take action against the Energy Advisor that changed organizations and/or those consultants who encouraged or participated in the crosssponsoring, including but limited to termination of the Energy Advisor’s Agreement. Think+ may also move all or part of the offending consultant’s downline to his or her original downline organization if the Company deems it equitable and feasible to do so. However, Think+ is under no obligation to move the cross-sponsored Energy Advisor’s downline organization, and the ultimate disposition of the organization remains within the sole discretion of Think+. Energy Advisors waive all claims and causes of action against Think+ and Think arising from or relating to the disposition of the cross-sponsored Energy Advisor’s downline organization. 22.

As a rule, Energy Advisors may not change their Sponsors (the Energy Advisors under whom they are enrolled). The only means by which an Energy Advisor may legitimately change his/her Sponsor are by: • Voluntarily canceling the Agreement in writing and remaining inactive for six (6) full calendar months. Following the sixcalendar month period of inactivity, the former Energy Advisor may reapply under a new Sponsor.

Waiver of Claims. In cases wherein an Energy Advisor improperly changes his/her Sponsor, Think+ reserves the sole and exclusive right to determine the final disposition of the downline organization that was developed by the Energy Advisor in his/her second line of sponsorship. ENERGY ADVISORS WAIVE ANY AND ALL CLAIMS AGAINST THINK+ AND THINK, AND THEIR OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, OWNERS, EMPLOYEES, AND AGENTS THAT RELATE TO OR ARISE FROM THINK+’S DECISION REGARDING THE DISPOSITION OF ANY DOWNLINE ORGANIZATION THAT DEVELOPS BELOW AN ENERGY ADVISOR WHO HAS IMPROPERLY CHANGED HIS/HER SPONSOR. 28. Income Claims. When presenting or discussing the Think+ opportunity or Compensation Plan to a prospective Energy Advisor, Energy Advisors may not make income projections, income claims, income testimonials, or disclose their Think+ income (including, but not limited to, the showing of checks, copies of checks, bank statements, or tax records), or the income of any other Think+ Energy Advisor. Nor may Energy Advisors make lifestyle income claims.

Conversely, Energy Advisors must never represent that one can be successful without diligently applying themselves. Energy Advisors agree that they shall not make any representations that could lead a prospect to believe that they can be successful as an Energy Advisor without commitment, effort, and sales skill. 30. Media Inquiries. Energy Advisors must not interact with the media regarding the Think+ business or the products and services. All inquiries from the media, including radio, television, print, online, or any other medium, shall be directed to the TBD marketing department. 31. Nonsolicitation. Think+ Energy Advisors are free to participate in other network marketing programs. However, during the term of this Agreement and for one year following the termination or cancellation of the Agreement for any reason, an Energy Advisor may not directly or indirectly recruit other Think+ Energy Advisors (except for the Energy Advisor’s personally sponsored downline Energy Advisors) for any other network marketing business. The term “recruit” means the direct or indirect, actual or attempted, sponsorship, solicitation, enrollment, encouragement, or effort to influence in any other way, another Think+ Energy Advisor to enroll or participate in another network marketing opportunity. This conduct constitutes recruiting even if the Energy Advisor’s actions are in response to an inquiry made by another Energy Advisor or customer. 12 Think+ Terms & Policies v.1 (Jan 2023) If an Energy Advisor is engaged in another network marketing program, it is the responsibility of the Energy Advisor to ensure that his or her Think+ business is operated entirely separate and apart from all other businesses and/or Network Marketing programs. To this end, the Energy Advisor must not: • Display Think+ promotional material, sales aids, or products or services with or in the same location as, any non-Think+ promotional material or sales aids, products, or services (Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and similar social media sites are exempt from this provision). • Offer the Think+ opportunity or Think products or services to prospective or existing customers or Energy Advisors in conjunction with any non-Think+ opportunity or Think products or services. • Offer, discuss, or display any non-Think+ opportunity or Think products or services at any Think+-related meeting, seminar, convention, webinar, teleconference, or other function. 32. Confidential Information. “Confidential Information” includes, but is not limited to, the identities, contact information, and/or sales information relating to Think+ Energy Advisors and/or Think customers: (a) that is contained in or derived from any Energy Advisors’ respective Energy Advisor Back-Office; (b) that is derived from any reports issued by Think+ to Energy Advisors to assist them in operating and managing their Think+ business; and/or (c) to which an Energy Advisor would not have access or would not have acquired but for his/her affiliation with Think+. Confidential Information constitutes proprietary business trade secrets belonging exclusively to Think+ and is provided to Energy Advisors in strict confidence. Confidential Information shall not be directly or indirectly disclosed to any third party nor used for any purpose other than Energy Advisor’s use in building and managing his/her Independent Think+ business. 33. Handling Personal Information. If an Energy Advisor receives Personal Information from or about an Energy Advisor, a prospective Energy Advisor, a Think customer, or a prospective Think customer, it is the Energy Advisor’s responsibility to maintain the security of the Personal Information. The Energy Advisor should shred or irreversibly delete the Personal Information of others once the Energy Advisor no longer needs it. Personal Information is information that identifies or permits a person or entity to contact an individual. It includes the name, address, email address, telephone number, credit card information, social security or tax identification number, and other information associated with these details, of another person including customers, potential customers, Energy Advisor s, and prospective Energy Advisor s. 34. Limitations on Energy Advisor and Household Businesses. An individual may own, operate, control, or have an interest in, only one Think+ business, and there may be no more than two Think+ businesses per household. If there are two Think+ businesses in a household, both businesses must have the same Sponsor, or one of the businesses in the household must be the immediate Sponsor of the other. A “household” is defined as all individuals including dependent children who are living at the same residential address as a family or in a family-like setting. A household may consist of a single individual or two or more individuals and may consist of individuals living together in a family-like unit who are not related (whether by blood, marriage, domestic partnership, adoption or otherwise). Dependent children attending school away from home are considered part of the household. Think+ will consider exceptions to this policy on a case-by-case basis upon written request submitted to the Compliance Department at networkcompliance@thinkenergy.plus. 35. Actions of Third Parties. If a third party acting on behalf of, or with the active or passive assistance or knowledge of an Energy Advisor engages in conduct that would be a violation of the Agreement, the conduct of the third-party may be imputed to the Energy Advisor. “Knowledge” of misconduct is not limited to actual knowledge. If an Energy Advisor engages in acts or omissions that the Energy Advisor knows or SHOULD KNOW will enable a third party to violate this Agreement if such action was taken by the Energy Advisor, the Energy Advisor shall be deemed to have knowledge of the violation. 36. Negative Comments/Nondisparagement. Negative comments in the field serve only to sour the enthusiasm of other Energy Advisors. Therefore, Energy Advisors must not disparage, libel, slander, demean, or make negative or critical comments to third parties or other Energy Advisors about Think+, Think, their respective owners, officers, directors, management, employees, other Think+ Energy Advisors, or the Compensation Plan. Disputes or disagreements between any Energy Advisor and Think+ shall be resolved pursuant to the Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Policies, and the Company 13 Think+ Terms & Policies v.1 (Jan 2023) and Energy Advisors agree specifically not to demean, discredit, or criticize one another on the Internet or any other public forum. Complaints and concerns about Think+ should be directed to the Customer Service Department at easupport@thinkenergy.plus. 37. Customer Sales/Enrollments. The Think+ Compensation Plan is based on the enrollment of customers by Energy Advisors. Energy Advisors must fulfill personal and downline organization customer enrollment requirements (known as “Team” customers) as specified in the Compensation Plan (as well as meet other responsibilities set forth in the Agreement) to be eligible for bonuses, commissions, and advancement to higher levels of achievement. 38. Transaction Submission Integrity. It is essential to the success of the Company, its Energy Advisors, and customers, that submissions of transactions to the Company maintain integrity of communication. It is to be expected that all transactions submissions to the Company, including, but not limited to, Energy Advisor applications and enrollments, Energy Advisor communications, Energy Advisor financial transactions, and Think customer transactions, be submitted by the individual or entity involved in the transaction. Third party submission of any and all transactions submissions is prohibited. An Energy Advisor may not communicate any transactions submissions on behalf of another Energy Advisor, Energy Advisor applicant, or Think customer. An Energy Advisor may not use his or her credit card or bank account on behalf of another individual or Energy Advisor. This rule is applicable to any and all forms of transactions submissions, including, but not limited to, online, telephone, fax, email, etc. 39. Bonus and Commission Qualifications and Accrual. An Energy Advisor must be active and in compliance with the Agreement to qualify for bonuses and commissions. So long as an Energy Advisor complies with the terms of the Agreement, Think+ will pay commissions to such Energy Advisor in accordance with the Compensation Plan. The minimum amount for which Think+ will issue a commission and/or bonus payment is $15If an Energy Advisor’s bonuses and commissions do not equal or exceed $15, the Company will accrue the commissions and bonuses until they total $$15. Payment will be issued once $15 has been accrued. An Energy Advisor will be charged a $0.99 payment processing fee for each time the Energy Advisor receives a bonus or commission payment. Notwithstanding the foregoing, all commissions, bonuses or other compensation owed an Energy Advisor, regardless of the amount accrued, will be paid at the last pay period of each calendar year or upon the termination of an Energy Advisor’s Energy Advisor Agreement. 40. Adjustment to Bonuses and Commissions. Commission and bonus payments issued to Energy Advisors are subject to the following adjustments: • Customer Cancellations. If a customer cancels their Think services within 90 days of achieving active status as a customer, all commissions paid to the Energy Advisor who enrolled/referred the customer and any upline Energy Advisors will be withheld from future commission payments to the Energy Advisor and any upline Energy Advisors until the full amount of the commission is recaptured. • Customer Chargebacks. If a customer initiates a chargeback on Think service charges and the chargeback is upheld by the customer’s credit card company, any commission, bonuses, or overrides paid to the enrolling/referring Energy Advisor and any upline Energy Advisors on the charged back transaction will be recovered by the Company from future commission, bonus, and override payments to the Energy Advisors until the full amount of such commissions, bonuses, and/or overrides is recaptured. • Garnishments/Court Orders. Think+ reserves the right to withhold or reduce any Energy Advisor’s compensation payments as it deems necessary to comply with any garnishment or court order directing TBD to retain, hold, or redirect such compensation to a third party. • Payment Processing Fee: Think+ will impose a $0.99 processing fee for each deposit into the Energy Advisor’s E-Wallet (which will be provided by PayQuicker and subject to change at the sole discretion of Think+). 14 Think+ Terms & Policies v.1 (Jan 2023) 41. Right of Offset. An Energy Advisor is not required to subscribe to any Think product or service in order to become an Energy Advisor. However, if the Energy Advisor selects Think as the Energy Advisor’s retail energy provider, billing must be paid when due. If an Energy Advisor becomes 60 days past due in paying any Think bill, the Company may, at the Company’s sole option, deduct the amounts owed by the offending Energy Advisor from his or her commission check and may terminate the Energy Advisor. In addition, Think+ may offset any amount owed to Think+ or Think by an Energy Advisor against commissions or other amounts owed to such Energy Advisor by Think+. 42. Reports. All information provided by Think+ in online activity reports, including, but not limited to, personal and team sales volume (or any part thereof) and downline sponsoring activity, is believed to be accurate and reliable. Nevertheless, due to various factors including, but not limited to: the inherent possibility of human and mechanical error; the accuracy, completeness and timeliness of orders; denial of credit card and electronic check payments; returned products or cancelled services; and credit card and electronic check chargebacks, the information is not guaranteed by Think+ or any persons creating or transmitting the information. ALL PERSONAL AND TEAM SALES VOLUME INFORMATION IS PROVIDED “AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTIES, EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, OR REPRESENTATIONS OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER. IN PARTICULAR, BUT WITHOUT LIMITATION, THERE SHALL BE NO WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR USE OR NONINFRINGEMENT. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMISSIBLE UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, THINK AND/OR OTHER PERSONS CREATING OR TRANSMITTING THE INFORMATION WILL, IN NO EVENT, BE LIABLE TO ANY ENERGY ADVISOR OR ANYONE ELSE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES THAT ARISE OUT OF THE USE OF, OR ACCESS TO, PERSONAL AND TEAM SALES VOLUME INFORMATION (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO: LOST PROFITS, BONUSES OR COMMISSIONS; LOSS OF OPPORTUNITY; AND DAMAGES THAT MAY RESULT FROM INACCURACY, INCOMPLETENESS, INCONVENIENCE, DELAY OR LOSS OF THE USE OF THE INFORMATION), EVEN IF THINK OR OTHER PERSONS CREATING OR TRANSMITTING THE INFORMATION HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THINK OR OTHER PERSONS CREATING OR TRANSMITTING THE INFORMATION SHALL HAVE NO RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY TO YOU OR ANYONE ELSE UNDER ANY TORT, CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, PRODUCTS LIABILITY OR OTHER THEORY WITH RESPECT TO ANY SUBJECT MATTER OF THIS AGREEMENT OR TERMS AND CONDITIONS RELATED THERETO. Access to and use of the Company’s online reporting services, and your reliance upon such information, is at your own risk. All such information is provided to you “as is.” If you are dissatisfied with the accuracy or quality of the information, your sole and exclusive remedy is to discontinue use of and access to the Company’s online services and your reliance upon the information. 43. Manipulation of the Compensation Plan. Think+ prohibits conduct and action which are, or may be perceived as, manipulation of the Compensation plan primarily for the purpose of qualifying for incentives, bonuses, advancement, and/or compensation paid by Think+. This prohibited conduct may include, but is not limited to: (i) purchasing and/or paying for Think products and services under an Energy Advisor’s account in your downline; or (ii) placing, or encouraging the placement of, orders under customer accounts in a fraudulent, manipulative, or deceptive manner. Think+ employs robust and consistent monitoring to ensure compliance with this policy. Similarly, Energy Advisors shall not require or encourage other current or prospective customers or Energy Advisors to make any purchase from, or payment to, any individual or other entity to participate in the Think+ Compensation Plan other than those purchases or payments identified as recommended or required in official Think+ literature. 44. Refunds to Energy Advisors Upon Cancellation or Termination of the Agreement. Upon the cancellation or termination of an Energy Advisor’s Agreement, the Energy Advisor may request a pro-rata refund of the most recent enrollment fee or annual renewal fee paid by the Energy Advisor. Upon the Company’s receipt of such a written request to cancellation@ thinkenergy.plus, the Company will issue a pro-rata refund, less a 10% processing fee, of the applicable enrollment fee or annual renewal fee. The refund will be pro-rated based on the number of whole months remaining in the initial term or renewal term, as applicable, of the Agreement. In addition, if the Energy Advisor purchased any tangible Sales Tools from the Company, the Energy Advisor may return such Sales Tools that were purchased from Energy Advisor during the 12-month period preceding the date of cancellation or termination for a refund so long as the Sales Tools are in currently marketable condition. (The one-year limitation shall not apply to residents of Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts and Wyoming and 15 Think+ Terms & Policies v.1 (Jan 2023) Puerto Rico). Upon the Company’s timely receipt of returned Sales Tools (and confirmation that the returned Sales Tools are in currently marketable condition), the Energy Advisor will be reimbursed 90% of the net cost of the original purchase price(s). Shipping and handling charges will not be refunded. If the purchases were made through a credit card, the refund will be credited back to the same account. Sales Tools are in “currently marketable condition” if they are unopened and unused and packaging and labeling has not been altered or damaged. Sales Tools that are clearly identified at the time of sale as nonreturnable, closeout, discontinued, customized or as a seasonal item are not in currently marketable condition and not eligible for a refund under this policy. 45. Montana Residents: A Montana resident may cancel his or her Energy Advisor Agreement within 15 days from the date on which this application is submitted for a full refund of the enrollment fee. 46. Louisiana, Massachusetts, Puerto Rico, and Wyoming Residents: If a resident of Louisiana, Massachusetts, Puerto Rico, or Wyoming cancels the Energy Advisor Agreement, upon receipt of a written request from such canceling Energy Advisor, Think+ will refund 90% of the costs incurred by such canceling Energy Advisor to participate in the program during the oneyear period immediately preceding the date of the cancellation. 47. Maryland Residents: An Energy Advisor who resides in Maryland may cancel the contract for any reason within 3 months after the date of enrollment. Upon cancellation, the Company shall issue a refund equal to 90% of the amount of the enrollment fee paid by the Energy Advisor. 48. Cancellation or Termination of the Agreement; Disciplinary Sanctions. • Voluntary Cancellation. A participant in the Think+ marketing plan (an Energy Advisor) has the right to cancel at any time, regardless of reason. Cancellation must be submitted in writing to the Company at cancellation@thinkenergy.plus and the written notice must include the Energy Advisor’s name, address, and Energy Advisor I.D. • Suspension or Cancellation for Non-Payment. An Energy Advisor’s failure to pay any required annual renewal fee when due may result, at the Company’s sole and absolute discretion, in the suspension or termination of the Agreement. In the event any such fees remain unpaid for 60 days, the Agreement shall be automatically terminated. • Involuntary Cancellation/Termination; Disciplinary Sanctions. Violation of any term of the Agreement, any illegal, fraudulent, deceptive or unethical business conduct, or any act or omission by an Energy Advisor that the Company reasonably believes may damage its reputation or goodwill, may result in the suspension or termination of this Agreement, and/or any other disciplinary measure that Think+ deems appropriate to address the misconduct. In situations deemed appropriate by Think+, the Company may institute legal proceedings for monetary and/or equitable relief, subject to the Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Policies. • Effect of Cancellation. So long as an Energy Advisor remains active and complies with the terms of the Agreement, Think+ shall pay bonuses and commissions to such Energy Advisor in accordance with the Compensation Plan. An Energy Advisor’s bonuses and commissions constitute the entire consideration for the Energy Advisor’s efforts in generating sales and all activities related to generating sales on their downline organization. An Energy Advisor whose business is cancelled for any reason will lose all Energy Advisor rights, benefits, and privileges. This includes the right to represent yourself as an Independent Think+ Energy Advisor, to sell Think products and services and the right to receive commissions, bonuses, or other income resulting from his/her own sales and the sales and other activities of the Energy Advisor and the Energy Advisor’s former downline sales organization. There is no whole or partial refund for tangible sales kits or Sales Tools that are not currently marketable if an Energy Advisor’s business is cancelled. Please see the refund policy at Policy 44 for further details regarding refunds. An Energy Advisor whose Energy Advisor Agreement is canceled shall receive commissions and bonuses only for the last full pay period he or she was active prior to cancellation (less any amounts withheld during an investigation preceding an involuntary cancellation). 16 Think+ Terms & Policies v.1 (Jan 2023) If at the time of the cancellation of the Agreement the Energy Advisor is also an active Think customer, the canceled Energy Advisor’s customer status shall continue in force unless the Energy Advisor specifically requests that his or her customer agreement be canceled (which may be subject to early termination fees if applicable). 49. Indemnification. An Energy Advisor is fully responsible for all their verbal and written statements made regarding the Think+ business opportunity, Think products and services and the Think+ Compensation Plan that are not expressly contained in the official Think+ and Think materials. Each Energy Advisor agrees to indemnify Think+, Think and any of Think+ or Think’s directors, officers, employees and agents and hold them harmless from any and all costs, expenses, consumer reimbursements, fines, sanctions, damages, settlements or payments of any other nature that Think+ or Think incurs resulting from or relating to any act or omission by the Energy Advisor that is illegal, fraudulent, deceptive, negligent, unethical, or in violation of the Agreement. Think+ may elect to exercise its indemnification rights through withholding any compensation due the Energy Advisor. This right of setoff shall not constitute the Company’s exclusive means of recovering or collecting funds due Think+ or Think pursuant to its right to indemnification. This provision shall survive the termination of the Agreement. 50. Business Transfers. Energy Advisors in good standing who wish to sell or transfer their business must receive Think+’s prior written approval before the business may be transferred or sold. A business that is on disciplinary probation, suspension, or under disciplinary investigation is not in good standing and may not be transferred or sold unless and until the disciplinary matter is resolved. Requests to transfer or sell a business must be submitted in writing to the Compliance Department at networkcompliance@thinkenergy.plus. The request to transfer or sell will be denied if the business is not in good standing or if there is another reasonable reason for denying the request. Prior to transferring or selling a business to a third party, the Energy Advisor must offer Think+ the right of first refusal to purchase the business on the same terms as negotiated with a third party. If the prospective buyer is an active Energy Advisor, he or she must first terminate his or her Energy Advisor Business and wait (6) calendar months before acquiring any interest in a different Think+ Energy business. The Company shall have ten days to exercise its right of first refusal. An Energy Advisor who has transferred or sold his or her independent Think+ business to a third party must wait a minimum of six (6) months from the date of the sale or transfer before reenrolling as an Energy Advisor. 51. Transfer Upon an Energy Advisor’s Death. Transfer Upon an Energy Advisor’s Death. Upon the death of an Energy Advisor, the Energy Advisor’s Think+ business may be passed to his/her heirs. The beneficiary or transferee of the business must notify Think+ of their intention to receive the transfer of the business within six (6) months of the date of death. If Think+ receives no such notification within such time period, the Agreement shall be automatically cancelled. Prior to the actual transfer of the business, the beneficiary or transferee must provide Think+ with certified letters testamentary or letters of administration and written instructions of the executor of the estate, or an order of the court, that provides direction on the proper disposition of the business. The beneficiary must also execute and submit to the Company a Think+ Energy Advisor Agreement within 30 days from the date on which the business is transferred by the estate to the beneficiary or transferee, or the Agreement will be cancelled. Because Think+ cannot divide commissions among multiple beneficiaries or transferees, if there are multiple beneficiaries or transferees of the business, the beneficiaries or transferees must form a business entity (corporation, LLC, partnership, etc.) and submit a Think+ Energy Advisor Agreement in the name of the business entity. Upon the completion of these requirements, Think+ will transfer the business and issue commissions to the individual beneficiary or business entity. During the pendency of the actual transfer of the business, commission and bonus payments (if any are earned) will be issued in the name of the estate of the deceased Energy Advisor. The beneficiary of the business shall be responsible for the payment of all monthly and renewal fees that may have accrued but not been paid during the pendency of the transfer. Failure to pay these fees shall result in the termination of the Agreement. 52. Divorce of an Energy Advisor. Think+ is not able to divide commissions among multiple parties, nor is it able to divide a downline organization. Consequently, in divorce cases, any settlement or divorce decree must award the business in its entirety to one party. Think+ will recognize as the owner of the business the former spouse to whom the business is awarded pursuant to a legally binding settlement agreement or decree of the court. The former spouse who receives the Think+ 17 Think+ Terms & Policies v.1 (Jan 2023) business must also execute and submit a Think+ Energy Advisor Agreement within 30 days from the date on which the divorce becomes final or the business will be cancelled. 53. Dissolution of a Business Entity. If a business entity that operates a Think+ business dissolves, the owners of the business entity must instruct the Company on the identity of the proper party who is to receive the business. The Think+ business must be awarded to a single individual or entity that was previously recognized by the Company as an owner of the business entity; the Company cannot divide the business among multiple parties or issue separate commission payments. The recipient of the Think+ business must also execute and submit a Think+ Energy Advisor Agreement to the Company within 30 days from the date of the dissolution of the business entity or the Agreement will be cancelled. If the business entity wishes to sell or transfer its Think+ business to an individual or entity who was not previously recognized by the Company as an owner of the business entity, it must do so pursuant to Policy 50. 54. Grandfathering. Think+ reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to grandfather Energy Advisors at ranks other than the ranks that they have achieved in the Compensation Plan. 55. Inducing Energy Advisors to Violate the Agreement. Energy Advisors shall not directly or indirectly induce, encourage, or assist another Energy Advisor to violate the Agreement. 56. Reporting Errors. If an Energy Advisor believes that Think+ has made an error in his/her compensation, the structure or organization of his/her genealogy, or any other error that impacts the Energy Advisor’s income, he/she must report it to the Company in writing within 60 days from the date on which the mistake occurred. While Think+ shall use its best efforts to correct errors reported more than 60 days after the date of the error, Think+ shall not be responsible to make changes or remunerate Energy Advisors for losses for mistakes that are reported more than 60 days after the mistake occurs. 57. Dispute Resolution; Arbitration. If a dispute between an Energy Advisor and Think+ arises from or relates to the Agreement, the Think+ business, the rights and obligations of either party, or the relationship between the parties, the parties shall resolve the dispute as set forth in the Think+ Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Policies, which are incorporated into and made a part of these Terms & Policies by this reference.
