PRODUCT GUARANTEES, RETURNS, & INVENTORY REPURCHASE
Product Guarantee and Rescission

Procedures for Brand Consumer and Brand Partner Returns
The Brand Consumer or Brand Partner must first call Puratae Customer Support at (801) 805-6500 to obtain a Return Product Authorization (RPA) number. An RPA will be issued upon the following conditions:
The products being returned must be linked to a specific order placed by the Brand Consumer or Brand Partner.
After the 60 Day – 100% money-back guarantee on all Retail Consumers, Brand Consumers and Brand Partners initial orders, all subsequent product orders must be unopened and in resalable condition.
The products must be returned within the 60 day return period, and must be returned within two weeks of the RPA being issued.
All products must be shipped appropriately to avoid damage during shipment. Should products arrive damaged, they will not be considered resalable and will be returned to the Brand Consumer or Brand Partner at their expense and without refund or exchange.
The Customer Support representative will instruct the Brand Consumer or Brand Partner to include the RPA number on the package being returned. The RPA should be visibly displayed on the outside of the package. The Brand Consumer or Brand Partner’s name, ID number, order number, and a list of the products being returned should be included inside the package.
The Brand Consumer or Brand Partner can then ship the products back to the U.S. Corporate Office. Packages sent to the U.S. Corporate Office that do not contain the RPA number visibly displayed on the outside of the package will be refused or returned to the Brand Consumer or Brand Partner at their expense. Shipping costs are the responsibility of the Brand Consumer or Brand Partner. If product is returned that was not approved when the RPA was issued, it will be returned to the Brand Consumer or Brand Partner at their expense.
Proper shipping carton(s) and packing materials are to be used in packaging the items(s) being returned, and the best and most economical means of shipping is suggested. All returns must be shipped to Puratae shipping pre-paid. Puratae does not accept shipping-collect packages.

Brand Consumers or Brand Partners who return their initial order within sixty (60) days of the original order will be credited 100% of their purchase price (less applicable shipping for Brand Partners), if the above steps are completed. The return of any initial order will cancel the Brand Partner’s membership. All volume and related commissions paid on this order will be deducted from the applicable Brand Partners.
With the exception of initial orders, all products must be returned unopened and in resalable condition in order to receive a refund. Refunds will be issued to the form of payment used at time of purchase.

RescissionRetail ConsumersFederal and state law requires that a Retail Consumer who makes a purchase of $25.00 or more has three business days (excluding Sundays and legal holidays) (5 business days for Alaska residents and 15 business days in North Dakota for Individuals age 65 and older) after the sale or execution of a contract to cancel the order and receive a full refund consistent with the cancellation notice on the order form or sales receipt. When a Brand Partner makes a sale or takes an order from a Retail Consumer who cancels or requests a refund within the three business day period, the Brand Partner must promptly refund the Retail Consumer’s money as long as the products are returned to the Brand Partner in substantially as good condition as when received (five business days for Alaska residents).
Brand Partners notify their Brand Consumers that they have three business days (excluding Sundays and legal holidays) (5 business days for Alaska residents and 15 business days in North Dakota for Individuals age 65 and older) within which to cancel their purchase and receive a full refund upon return of the products in substantially as good condition as when they were delivered. Brand Partners should also notify their Brand Consumers about these time limits at the time they enroll as a Brand Consumers and place their first order. Products shipped directly to a Brand Consumers by the Company must be returned to the Company and the refund will be issued to the Brand Consumer by the Company. Brand Consumers may contact the Company for a “call tag” that will provide return shipping back to the Company at no cost to the Brand Consumer.
Brand Partners MUST verbally inform their Consumers (Retail and Brand) of this right of rescission, they MUST provide their Retail Consumers with TWO copies of a retail receipt at the time of the sale, and MUST point out this cancellation right stated on the receipt. If a Consumer places an order online, the Company will provide the Consumer with the receipt. Brand Partners must ensure that the date of the order or purchase is entered on the Retail Sales Receipt. All Retail Consumers must be provided with two copies of an official Puratae Retail Sales Receipt at the time of the sale. The back of the receipt provides the Consumer with written notice of his or her rights to cancel the order.
