To be registered one needs an invitation of a user made by an interested person at Jugl (for details see § 4).

§ 3 Distinctive Features

a) On-line Trade Platform An important issue of Jugl is its on-line trade platform. Here users can promote among one another products or services and sell them for Jugls. Alternatively, at the seller’s option a traditional means of payment is provided for.

By typing user profiles one can optimize ad types depending on the user’s interests.

Agreements at the on-line trade platform are made exclusively between the appropriate users and execution thereof are their sole responsibility. That’s why Jugl bears no liability for any agreement violations.

b) Social Network Another important component of Jugl is a social network with its Forum and Messenger (file exchange, communication).

c) Human Search Machine With the help of human search machine users can look for something either for themselves or for others as well as search for other users of ask others to search for themselves and take further requests.

d) Rewarding A unique feature of Jugl is a possibility for every user to earn rewards by the following means.

aa) Attracting New Users Attracting new users to Jugl is rewarded on long-term basis. From every bonus payment (invitation, ad, mediation, purchase bonus) a user gets 40 % or only 30 % (for Premium members) is deducted and 29 % is contributed for the one who invited the member. Difference of 11 % or 1 % (for Premium members) goes to Jugl.

bb) Invitation Bonus Jugl encourages users brining another user with an invitation bonus of 100.00 Jugls, if the brought user becomes a Premium member or just a user successfully verified his or her personality (per § 5).

Since the reward is taken from bonus-based profit, every long-term user benefits from every customer he or she has attracted and from every bonus payment to such user.

This model of payment doesn’t mean any illegal financial pyramid (e.g., according to Annex 1 of EU Unfair Commercial Practices Directive (2005/29/EG)) since, on the one hand, participation payment is not required and, on the other hand, invitation reward profit make just a small part of possible earning Jugl had a legal expertise of this activity.

cc) Viewing Ads for Reward Traditionally, a customer pays an advertiser money with a vague hope the ad shall reach right consumers. Jugl created an idea that a business person provides his or her ad only for those ones who according to their interests perfectly fit the ad target audience to reward them for active viewing ads. The ad owner’s advantage is that he or she pays for the ad as long as it is really viewed by the target audience. By setting a maximum budget ad owners can control their expenses.

Ad viewing bonus is indicated in ad. To avoid any abuse the bonus is paid only when a user views ad within the period specified by Jugl. To get the bonus the user shall click after the period expires a popup button.

dd) Other Deals Because of the on-line trade platform users can naturally benefit from traditional deals i.e. sales of products and services. If a seller provides a purchase bonus as an additional stimulus for a buyer or a user promises a bonus for a successful mediation in a deal (a mediation bonus), such bonuses in small amounts are due to many users for they are distributed the same way the reward is paid to the user that invited the one who earned a bonus and other previous users.

e) Currency The fixed exchange rate for Jugls is €1.00 for 100.00 Jugls.

f) Ratings Jugl has a publicly transparent deal rating system and team leaders’ invitation rating system (see § 4).

§ 4 Registration, Revocation Right

Der A user receiving a payment from an applicant shall in turn care for reward possibilities for the invited user and inform him or her about how Jugl works. In return the leader is rated by the applicant. In a week after registration in invitation list a user can submit a request to change the team leader.

Besides, even after the registration is over the users can edit their account data.

Jugl checks registrations and can decline them even without explanations .

Revocation Right Consumer right protection European directives require an obligatory consumers’ revocation right in case of remotely concluded sales agreements.

If the user fails to pass the identity check within 8 weeks after Jugl’s request, Jugl has a right to terminate the agreement with the user immediately. § 6 para 3 acts appropriately.
