1. Policies and Compensation Plan Incorporated into Distributor Agreement.
These Policies and Procedures, in their present form and as amended at the sole discretion of
Life Shotz, a division of Oxyfresh International, Inc. (hereafter “Life Shotz” or the “Company”), are
incorporated into the Life Shotz Distributor Agreement. Throughout these Policies, when the term
“Agreement” is used, it collectively refers to the Life Shotz Distributor Application and Agreement,
the Policies and Procedures, and the Life Shotz Compensation Plan. The Company reserves the
right to amend the Policies and Compensation Plan at its discretion. Amendments shall be effective
30 days after publication in your Life Shotz Advanced Personal Marketing Center.

2. Policies and Provisions Severable.
If any provision of the Agreement, in its current form or as amended, is found to be unenforceable,
only the unenforceable portion(s) of the provision shall be severed from the Agreement and the
remaining provisions shall remain in effect. 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.

3. Term and Renewal of Your Life Shotz Business.
The term of the Distributor Agreement is one year from the date of enrollment. Managers and above
must renew their Distributorship Agreement each year and pay the annual renewal fee.

a number of laws that apply to network marketing programs which are discussed in the Distributor

Additionally, all retail sales must comply with the FTC Three-Day Cooling-Off Rule, which requires
statutory language and notice of cancellation rights on the retail sales receipt. The customer must

retail receipt must have the following language on it: “You the buyer may cancel this transaction at
any time prior to midnight of the third business day after the date of this transaction.”

and its products, and must avoid all deceptive, misleading, unethical or immoral conduct or
practices. While it is impossible to specify all misconduct that would be contrary to this policy, the
following standards specifically apply to Distributors conduct:

      in all promotional material and social media postings, and are responsible for the content of
      all material that they produce and all postings that appear on any social media site that they
      operate, own or control;
•     Deceptive conduct is always prohibited. Distributors must ensure that their statements are
      truthful and accurate;
