Rules and Safeguards
All policies, rules and regulations are the final decision of Helps Network. We
reserve the right to modify, add or change any policies as we deem necessary at
any time. All members agree that they will not hold Helps Network liable for
any items, policies within this program or misrepresentation of the program by
any of its members. The following information, rules, safeguards, terms and
conditions are not exhaustive and other expressions throughout the Helps
Network website should be taken into consideration as to what is expected of a
this document the terms The Helps Network, HelpsNet, Site, Company, we or us
are all used interchangeably.
There are no refunds necessary because there is no money required for a person
to become a Helps Network member. Any monetary help that is given by a member
is given by that member’s own free will and given directly to those in need of
such help. Any financial and/or physical help given to The Helps Network
is a gift and and becomes the sole property of HelpsNet.
When activating the Helps Network Premier membership account, you will be
paying yearly membership dues. When dues are up to date you will be given
certain privileges that regular members don’t have. Because of this fact,
when becoming a Premier member with the Helps Network program it is important
that you understand that there is a NO REFUND POLICY on your yearly
membership dues. Your Premier Membership can be revoked at any time due an
infraction of the "Rules and Safe guards” or at the discretion of The
Helps Network. If your Premier Membership is cancelled for any reason
there is NO REFUND of dues regardless of the amount of time you were a Premium
Member. If spending any amount of money in becoming a Helps Network Premier
member program would cause financial stress or hardship, it is advised that you
do not join this program since no refunds can be given under any circumstances.
Helps Network has a zero tolerance for spam. Anyone caught spamming will
be deleted from the program and may be subject to civil and criminal
prosecution including up to $50,000 in fines.If you are to include "The
Helps Network,” "Helps Network,” "HelpsNet” name or URL in any email
promotion, or email it may only be to your Network of friends.
The Helps Network does not allow its names, "The Helps Network,”
"Helps Network,” "HelpsNet” to be used in any form of advertising or
print without its express written consent.
Each member of The Helps Network should strive to adhere to the
"Membership Agreement,” which is no more than a personal covenant. It is
an expression of a members understanding of The Helps Network purpose and goals
and their personal commitment to such. It also assures The Helps Network that
"HelpsNet” and its members, have permission to contact other Helps Network
members by phone, email or any other conventional means.
The helps network does not give the assurance of income to any of its
members. There is no requirement to pay anything to be a standard member of The
Helps Network and take advantage of the program. A member should have no
expectation nor is it to be inferred that he/she will receive anything by being
a standard member of "HelpsNet.” The Helps Network is not promising its
members any income or help for their participation in the network. If a member
gives or receives a financial gift from any other member it is their
prerogative and responsibility. The Helps Network does not require a
standard member to give financially to anyone. The Helps Network can’t
require a member to give because to do so would make this an illegal
chain-letter scheme. The member should let their conscience be their guide.
The Helps Network reserves the right to grant or revoke membership from
anyone at its discretion.
