8. Refund Policies.
All purchases of products or services made by Customers and Members through the OurGV Inc. Mall are made between the Customer or Member and the OurGV Inc. Mall Merchant Partner. The refund or exchange policies are determined at the sole discretion of the Merchant Partner from which the product or service is purchased. OurGV Inc. and the OurGV Inc. Mall are not responsible for any aspect of a transaction between a Customer or Member and a Merchant Partner through their Mall Store, other than to pay Cash Rebates earned by Customers and Members according to the schedule located at the OurGV Inc. online Shopping Mall.

The refund policy for the purchase of any of OurGV Inc.'s Website Packages or monthly hosting autoships is as follows:

All setup fees and any Rebates are considered to be non-refundable. The unused portion of the month someone requests to cancel their website hosting will be refunded minus any rebates that have already been paid out.   In order to account for the occasional unforseen circumstance, OurGV Inc. has the following standard in place, however consideration for this will be strictly on a case by case basis: ONLY WITHIN 14 days from date of purchase = 100% of purchase price minus any rebates that have already been paid out minus 10% for processing, paperwork, and technical support to restructure your website 15+ days from date of purchase = No Refunds except for the unused hosting during the month a cancellation is requested. Refunds must be requested in writing by postal mail or fax to OurGV Inc, any inquiry needs to be initiated through customer service email and telephone. Please allow up to 21 business days to process and refund requests that are accepted. The OurGV Inc. Fax Number is 512-646-7089.
A2S Advanced Training Fees are Non-Refundable: Any website package purchased that included an A2S Advanced Training will have the appropriate amount equal to the A2S Advanced Training deducted from any refund.

Effect of Refunds on Bonuses, Revenues, Straight Line Customer Revenue System, Etc. : When a Customer or Member requests a refund of a product or service through the Merchant Partner it was purchased from, OurGV Inc. will reduce sales amounts accordingly for all websites who earned any income from the transaction for the appropriate month and amount of refund in order to properly reduce any Bonuses, Rebates, Straight Line Customer Revenue System, or other revenue paid. Any special bonuses such as the Benjamin Bonus or the $5,000 bonus will be forfeit in the event of refunds.

In the rare event that a Customer or Member is scheduled to be paid or has already been paid as a result of sales for which a refund is made for any reason, OurGV Inc. reserves the right to adjust any unmailed bonus check, adjust current sales volumes, or require the Customer or Member to repay bonuses already paid to him/her on those products or services which were refunded.

9. Referring Member Website Standards.
Changing referring Members is not allowed. The only possible exception will be in the case where unethical or unprofessional methods were employed and OurGV Inc. is forced to remedy the situation.

It is possible at some point that more than one individual may contact the same potential new Customer or Member resulting in a dispute over referral rights. OurGV Inc. will not mediate such disputes and will recognize the Member Website that first registered the aforementioned customer or member as the official referring website.

Members must perform bonafide support duties in order to maintain their referral status over any customers, members, non-profits, and/or website partners personally referred. Lack of support and communication is grounds for suspension and loss of personal referral status. Any personal referrals lost due to suspension automatically roll to OurGV Inc. to decide the best possible placement for ongoing support. If OurGV Members above the personally referring member have been working directly with the team of the suspended member they will be first in line to receive the personal referral status themselves. This is solely up to the discretion of OurGV Inc. to determine who should receive the suspended member's referrals.

10. Territories.
OurGV Inc. does not recognize any exclusive territories. Therefore, Members are not restricted from conducting business anywhere in the countries in which OurGV Inc. operates.

11. Conditions of the OurGV Member Compensation Plan
OurGV Inc.'s Member Compensation Plan can be found on our Internet site at www.OurGV.com and is deemed part of these Policies and Procedures. Certain rules and regulations relating to the application and administration of the Compensation Plan are noted below.

a) So that we may verify information needed to pay rebates and bonuses, all OurGV Inc. Members must provide OurGV Inc. with a valid postal address. If a Customer or Member fails to provide the necessary information, we will make every reasonable effort to obtain the information. If, however, we are unable to obtain the information, and thus are unable to pay any accrued rebates and bonuses, all such payments will be considered forfeited by the Customer or Member one-year after our first request for the information.

b) OurGV Inc. and our Merchant Partners set bonuses, negotiated commissions, straight line customer revenue system and rebate percentages. OurGV Inc. and the Merchant Partners reserve the right to modify these bonuses, negotiated commissions, profit sharing, and rebates at any time for any reason.

d) OurGV Inc. reserves the right to modify or change the OurGV Member Compensation Plan at any time without prior notification.

e) OurGV Inc. reviews the entire organizational structure of Customers and Members as of the close of business each Sunday at Midnight Eastern Standard Time (EST). Orders that have verified confirmation of payment received are included in the bonus cycle. Bonus checks for website package, business tool, monthly hosting, and training sales, for the selling website and that websites referring website are mailed two weeks later for any amounts greater than $13 (USD). If a Customer or Member has not reached that amount at the end of a pay period, the account balance carries forward to the next end of the month profit-sharing period. Cash rebate checks for shopping are mailed out around the 25th of the month following the month when said rebates were earned for amounts greater than $13.  All checks processed will have a $2.50 fee deducted to help cover the administrative, processing, checks, banking, and package costs of checks. The balance of checks that are less than $13 for any given pay period will be carried forward until $13 is earned at such time the check will be paid out.

f) Members who are not residents of the United States are required to determine, and by application to become an OurGV Inc. Member do certify to the Company, that participation in the OurGV Member Compensation Plan, in accordance with these Polices and Procedures and the OurGV Member Compensation Plan itself, including receipt of bonuses under the OurGV Member Compensation Plan, is lawful in the jurisdiction(s) where the Member resides, is domiciled, or conducts business.

g) To ensure bonuses and rebates are earned and credited correctly, OurGV Inc. Customers and Members must place all orders online via the OurGV Inc. Mall web site. In addition, for orders placed through certain Merchant Partners, Customers and Members may also be required to forward the order confirmation to Rewards@OurGV.com. Requirements for each Merchant Partner are posted at OurGV Inc. Mall prior to making the connection to that Partner through the OurGV Inc. Mall.

h) For Paid Customer/Member Websites, Monthly hosting fees must be paid in order to keep a spot in the OurGV Inc. Straight Line Customer Revenue System and current rank status. For websites not required to pay a monthly hosting fee, a certain level of activity is required. Failure to meet these minimum activity requirements, will result in being moved to a lower spot in the straight line customer revenue system and possible deletion. It is the Sole Responsibility of the Member to make sure OurGV Inc. has current payment information on file. In the event that an OurGV Member's monthly hosting declines they have 7 days to fix it, or they may lose their spot in the OurGV Straight Line Customer Revenue System. OurGV Inc. is not responsible for any banking, credit card, or other unforseen issues that may cause a Member's hosting fees to not remain current. Make sure that OurGV has a current email address and phone number on file. Free Customer, and Preferred Customer Websites must have at least 1 BV of activity each month or their website can be deleted. (Special Note: Free Customers lose their spot in the Profit-Sharing System if not upgraded by Sunday Midnight P.S.T.)

i) Due to U.S. Taxation Laws, we will be unable to send ANY compensation to members, customers, non-profit organizations, or merchants without having received proper tax identification. We will hold funds for a MAXIMUM of 30 days after which if poper identification i.e. social security number or E.I.N. is not received all compensation will be forfeit.

j) It should be duly noted that all referred members have a responsibility to act in a professional, positive, and courteous manner. Negative actions, comments, remarks, etc. will not be tolerated.

k) The OurGV Straight Line Customer Revenue System involves a large number of variables on a monthly basis. It is also requires an incredibly complex usage of higher math functions to sort out the thousands of different merchant commissions, tens of thousands and growing members, dozens and growing countries, and fluctuating profitability of the company. Therefore no specific monetary claims are made by the company, and should not be made by any OurGV Member. The necessary algorithms developed to handle this incredible program are considered to be proprietary, and as such are 100% confidential.

12. Income Representations.
Members shall not make any false or misleading statements about their own or any other Member's income. All OurGV Inc. Members are strictly prohibited from making any income claims.

The OurGV Inc. Business is a performance-based business that rewards people in direct proportion to their effort.

Business, one can work as much or little as he or she likes. The rewards are based directly on the actual production of your website.

Other websites not required to pay a monthly hosting fee, must generate at least 1 BV every month, or lose their spot in the OurGV Straight Line Customer Revenue System and face deletion. If a member has accumulated a minimum of 1BV cumulative, then we will see this on our computer report and therefore find their original referring member and make the necessary changes, or in certain cases, a Top 20 Leader emails our service department regarding this inquiry. Special Note: Due to the complexity of the new OurGV Straight Line Customer Revenue System, any website not generating BV's during any calendar month, may be rolled down to the bottom of the Straight Line Customer Revenue System. OurGV is not responsible for websites rolled to the bottom of the Straight Line Customer Revenue System due to payment issues with monthly hosting. At the end of each calendar month, any websites with zero BV's are subject to losing their spot & possible deletion, while Free Customers lose their spot every week unless upgraded by Midnight P.S.T. on Sundays.
a. Not maintaining monthly hosting can also result in the loss of any personally referred websites and all compensation past, present, and future on those personally referred websites. The only exception to the hosting rule is to generate a minimum of 15 BV's worth of NEW personal volume in a calendar month. This NEW volume must be generated by website sales, website upgrades, or shopping. Any month this requirement is not met can and will result in a loss of any personally referred websites, permanently.
b. Free Customer websites do not have any monthly hosting requirements to maintain their individual websites, BUT if they are referring personal websites then they must either get on monthly hosting, or meet the monthly 15 BV's of new personal volume requirement listed above, or they will lose any personally referred websites, permanently.
