Manner of delivery: postal package, business package, or retrieval directly from PM Sweden’s office in Ängelholm. Other means of payment: autogiro, credit or debit card (Visa, MasterCard, Eurocard). Cash can be paid with pick up from PM Sweden.

The freight cost imposed is the price indicated in the latest current pricelist. Conditions regarding cancellation in connection with ticket sales and notification to academicians and seminars are determined and indicated with each individual event.
c) Return of products ordered.
Only claims are approved for return. By this is meant that there is a defect in the goods. For returned items a copy of the invoice must be included with the product. Expenses for postage (standard amount) will be paid for valid returns. Repayment of returns is done by transfer to an account.
d) Notification regarding bonus disbursements must be made within 90 days after the bonus check has been received in order for it to be processed.
2. Legal conditions
a) Each Business Partner of PM International runs its business in its own name and by its own direction and is not employed or acts according to assignment by PM International. The Business Partners are therefore responsible themselves for auditing taxable income, etc. The Business Partners have no sole right either to a geographic sales area, to products sold, or to customers. PM International’s products are exclusively distributed through direct sales. Sales are thus prohibited in retail trade, at markets, or at trade fairs. Sales and advertising of PM products are allowed only through the official home page of PM International. Promoting PM products on other home pages, by means of other electronic sales systems, auction systems, or similar is prohibited.
b) A distributor may avail itself when marketing PM and PM products only of product information, sales materials, and sales aids produced by PM. When producing in-house marketing materials or marketing via a web page, the distributor may not refer to PM or PM’s products or make use of trademarks or other commercially protected patents belonging to PM.
c) A distributor may not make changes or let anyone else make changes in PM’s products or packaging. It is allowed to have a label with the contact information of the distributor as long as it does not contain advertisements or other product information.
d) Everything stated by the distributor about PM International must agree with PM’s conditions, especially information in the product catalog, on labels, and other product information. Under no circumstance may a distributor make statements that resemble medical or healing effects of PM’s products.
e) Every distributor must follow the binding legal provisions and the general rules of conduct in direct marketing both in general advertisement and in contact with new distributors.
f) Contracts, agreements, and arrangements applying mainly or partially to PM International’s product lines or sales system must be approved in writing by PM International.
g) Spouses can engage in separate businesses and operate under their own customer numbers. It is important in such cases to ensure that one of the spouses must be registered directly under the other in their first line.
h) Each Business Partner may be registered only one time. Renewed registration (with consideration of point 3) is possible only after annulment of previous registration.
i) The minimum age for entry into a Business Partnership with PM International is 18.
3. Securing sponsor lines
a) PM International has protection of sponsor lines as a principle. A distributor who has entered into a Business Partnership may be reregistered only by filling out a new Team Partner application and be sponsored by its previous sponsor or alternatively be dropped from our system after 12 months by being inactive for 12 months without personal volume. In this case, it is possible to reregister under a new sponsor.
b) Protection of the sponsor lines also applies to end customers (cf. point a). This protection lasts for 6 months.
c) Spouses can operate under their own distributor number but one of them must be registered directly in the other’s first line. Children of business age may be exclusively registered (within the parents’ organization) in the parent’s or parents’ first line. Siblings, parents, grandparents, and grandchildren must also be registered in the first line.
4. General conditions
a) The purpose and goal of PM International’s distribution system is to sell PM products to end customers. It is therefore expected that each Business Partner will actively and regularly follow up and tend to these customers. Each Business Partner is obligated to inform his or her sponsored Business Partners about PM International’s distribution system, train them continually, and motivate them. This can be accomplished through one’s own efforts and/or through participation in seminars organized by PM International in cooperation with leading persons in PM International’s business operations.
b) Each Business Partner has the right to a commission paid from the system that is outlined in the marketing plan as long as the bonus amount exceeds € 5. It is not permitted to debit other Business Partners for participation in seminars, training, etc. as long as these fees are not intended to cover costs. Holding seminars, training, etc. for the purpose of gaining revenue goes against PM International’s business ethics and is not permitted. Disbursement of provision on all paid turnover is done after the end of the month at the end of the subsequent month. A Business Partner must approve registration of his or her personal information and reports in PM International’s electronic data management system and forwarding in PM International’s distribution system. All laws regarding private information and gathering and distributing it are adhered to in all cases.
c) Countries outside the EU may be involved when data is given to a third party for treatment of your orders, purchases, or other requests, where comparable regulations on data protection are not applied. For this reason, personal data and transaction data are transferred in agreement with the standard clauses of the EU Commission.
In case of infringement of business conditions and provisions, or in case a Business Partner acts to damage PM International in any way, immediate termination of the agreement with the Business Partner is warranted.
6. Conditions governing expanded ownership
All marketable goods belong to PM International until full payment is received.
7. Other conditions
There are no other conditions under this agreement. Changes or additions must be made in writing in order to enter into force. If it should be the case that this agreement contains one or more invalid or non-applicable conditions, these must be followed to the extent that is legally allowed. Such conditions will be applied in a way that is as close as possible to their original intention. All other conditions in this agreement must remain in full effect.
If you pay via Autogiro
Permission to pay via Autogiro
The undersigned (“payer”) will allow payment to be made by withdrawal from the indicated account, or from an account later indicated by the payer, on demand by the indicated recipient of the payment for payment to the undersigned on a given day (date of payment) via Autogiro. The payer gives consent that treatment of personal data given in this permission will be treated by the payer’s payment service provider, supplier of payment, recipient of payment, the payment service provider for the recipient of the payment, and the Bank Giro Center BGC AB for administration of the service. The person responsible for personal data for management of this personal data is the payment service provider for the payer, the recipient of the payment, and the payment service provider for the recipient of the payment. The payer can at any time request access to or correction of personal data by contacting the payer’s payment service provider. Further information on management of personal data in connection with payments can be found in the conditions for the account and in agreement with the recipient of the payment. The payer can at any time recall his or her consent, which means that the service is terminated in its entirety.
Autogiro is a payment service that transfers payments from the payer’s account at the initiative of the recipient of the payment. In order for the payer to be able to make a payment via Autogiro, the payer must grant consent to the recipient of the payment that the recipient may initiate payments from the payer’s account. The payer’s payment service provider (for example a bank or payment institute) must approve use of the account for Autogiro and the recipient of the payment must approve the payer as a user of Autogiro.
The payer’s payment service provider is not liable to test qualification of the payer or to notify the payer ahead of time regarding requested withdrawals. Withdrawals are charged against the payer’s account according to the rules that obtain with the payer’s payment service provider. The payer receives notification of a withdrawal from his or her payment service provider. Permission can be transferred by request of the payer to a different account with the payment service provider or to an account with a different payment service provider.
Definition of banking day
By banking day is meant all days other than Saturday, Sunday, Midsummer Eve, Christmas Eve, New Year’s Eve, and other public holidays.
Information on payment
The payer will be informed by the recipient of payment on the amount, due date, and manner of payment at the latest eight banking days before the due date. This can be done before each individual due day or at a time indicating several future due dates. If the notification concerns several future due dates, the notification must be given at the latest eight banking days before the first due date. This does not, however, hold when the payer has approved withdrawal in connection with purchase or ordering of goods or services. In such a case, the payer must receive notification by the recipient of payment regarding the amount, due date, and manner of payment in connection with the purchase and/or order. By signing this permission, the payer grants consent that payments included in the notification by the recipient of the payment are carried out according to this point.
There must be coverage in the account
The payer must ensure that there is coverage in the account by the latest at 12:01 a.m. on the due date. If the payer does not have coverage in the account on the due date, it may mean that payments will not be made. If coverage is lacking on the due date, the recipient of the payment may make further attempts to make withdrawals during future banking days. The payer may by request receive information from the recipient of the payment on the number of attempts to make withdrawals.
Stopping payment (recall of payment order)
The payer may stop a payment by contacting either the recipient of the payment at the latest two banking days before the due date or his or her payment service provider at the latest on the banking day before the due date at a time indicated by the payment service provider.
If the payer stops a payment according to the above, it means that the current payment is stopped for an individual instance. If the payer wants all future payments initiated by the recipient of the payment to be stopped, the payer must revoke permission.
Duration of permission, revocation
Permission is granted until further notice. The payer has the right to revoke permission at any time by contacting the recipient of the payment or his or her payment service provider. In order to stop any payments not completed, notification that permission has been revoked must be available to the recipient of the payment at the latest five banking days before the due date or be available to the payer’s payment service provider at the latest on the banking day before the due date at the time given by the payment service provider.
The right of the recipient of the payment and the payer’s payment service provider to end affiliation with Autogiro
The recipient of the payment has the right to end the payer’s affiliation with Autogiro thirty days after the recipient of the payment has informed the payer of this. The recipient of the payment has the right, however, immediately to end the payer’s affiliation with Autogiro if the payer in repeated instances has not had sufficient account holdings on the due date or if the account that the permission concerns is terminated or if the recipient of the payment makes the assessment that the payer for a different reason should not participate in Autogiro.
The payer’s payment service provider has the right to end the payer’s affiliation with Autogiro in agreement with the conditions obtaining between the payer’s payment service provider and the payer.
