- No Assignment by Customer
You may not transfer or assign your Customer Position or delegate any rights or duties under this Agreement without the prior written consent of Propre.

Propre has the right to transfer or assign any or all of its rights and to delegate any or all of its duties under this Agreement without consent or notice.
Dispute Resolution / Confidential Arbitration
- ANY CONTROVERSY OR CLAIM ARISING OUT OF, OR RELATING TO, THE CUSTOMER MEMBERSHIP APPLICATION AND AGREEMENT, INCLUDING THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, OR THE BREACH THEREOF, SHALL BE SETTLED BY CONFIDENTIAL ARBITRATION ADMINISTERED BY THE AUSTRALIAN CENTRE FOR INTERNATIONAL COMMERCIAL ARBITRATION (AU) UNDER ITS COMMERCIAL ARBITRATION RULES, AND JUDGMENT ON THE AWARD RENDERED BY THE ARBITRATOR MAY BE ENTERED IN ANY COURT HAVING JURISDICTION THEREOF. IF YOU FILE A CLAIM OR COUNTERCLAIM AGAINST PROPRE, YOU MAY ONLY DO SO ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT WITH ANY OTHER INDIVIDUAL OR AS PART OF A CLASS ACTION. YOU WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO TRIAL BY JURY OR TO ANY COURT.
All Australian arbitration proceedings shall be held in Sydney, Australia (unless the laws of the jurisdiction where you reside expressly require the application of its laws, in which case the arbitration shall be held in the capital of that jurisdiction). At least one arbitrator shall be an attorney at law experienced in business law transactions and network marketing. Neither the parties nor the arbitrator(s) may disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration without the prior written consent of both parties. Judgment on any award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. Each party to the arbitration shall be responsible for its own costs and expenses, including legal and filing fees; provided, however, that the arbitrator will have discretion to award legal fees and other costs to the prevailing party. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on the parties. This agreement to arbitrate shall survive any termination or expiration of your relationship with Propre.
- Nothing in the arbitration provision prohibits either party from obtaining a temporary injunction, preliminary injunction, permanent injunction or other equitable relief available to safeguard and protect the party’s interests prior to, during or following the filing of any arbitration or other proceeding, or pending the rendition of a decision or award in connection with an arbitration or other proceeding. The arbitrator(s) will have the authority to continue injunctive relief and to enter a permanent order granting such relief.
- In addition, nothing in the arbitration provision shall prevent Propre from filing a lawsuit to identify unknown persons, including, but not limited to, unidentified Customers or Independent Partners, who may be selling Propre products on the Internet, cybersquatting, registering or using Propre trademarks or confusingly similar domain names, or producing Propre merchandise without authorisation. Once a person is determined to be a Customer or Independent Partner, Propre may take further action against such persons. The filing of a lawsuit and taking any action in that lawsuit to identify unknown persons shall not be a waiver of any right or obligation set forth in the arbitration provision.
- In the event that a dispute or claim arising out of, or relating to this Agreement, is not subject to arbitration as set forth above, the laws of the state of New South Wales, Australia shall govern, and the parties agree that proper jurisdiction and venue shall be in the state and federal courts of New South Wales, Australia. If the laws of your place of residence impose any requirement that is different from or in addition to those set forth in these Terms and Conditions, then these Terms and Conditions shall be deemed amended in conformance with those laws as to that jurisdiction only.
- BY CREATING AN PROPRE CUSTOMER ACCOUNT, YOU AGREE TO ACCEPT AND BE BOUND BY THE ABOVE CONFIDENTIAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION.
Each of the clauses in these Terms and Conditions operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining clauses will remain in full force and effect.
The failure of Propre to enforce any of the provisions herein shall not be deemed a waiver of their enforceability.
Propre may adjust or amend this Agreement, including these Terms and Conditions at any time. Notice of such adjustments or amendments will be published at least thirty (30) days before being made effective. You agree to be bound by all such amendments and understand that your only remedy for not accepting such amendments is to terminate this Agreement. Placing an order after publication of any amendment will constitute your acceptance of the amendment.
