The Lyconet marketers had to accept another change. They were/are requested to revoke their previous participation in the Lyconet Marketing Programme of Lyoness Europe AG and to register with the Lyconet Marketing Programme of Lyconet International AG, based in Vienna.
Sole shareholder of Lyconet International AG is none other than the general counsel Dr. Hubert Reif (law firm Dr. Reif & Partner) from myWorld / Lyoness / Lyconet himself.
The marketer has to agree to a whole range of changes and waivers:
It starts with…
“I irrevocably terminate my previous participation in the Lyconet Marketing Program of Lyoness Europe AG and hereby register for the Lyconet Marketing Program of Lyconet International AG, Orbi Tower, Thomas-Klestil-Platz 13, 1030 Vienna, Austria (hereinafter “Lyconet International AG“).”
Among other things, the member must declare and agree to lose the friendship bonus due to participation in the Lyoness loyalty program. Furthermore, one irrevocably waives the right to a friendship bonus and that a marketing bonus will in future be granted as part of the Lyconet International AG’s participation in the Lyconet Marketing Program as an “incentive”.
… that Lyconet International AG assumes no other liabilities (including contingent liabilities) and no liability whatsoever of the previous contractual partner from the Lyconet marketing program. All claims and/or claims of any kind that do not relate to the expressly accepted claims are therefore to be directed exclusively to the previous contractual partner from the Lyconet marketing program.
How someone can agree to such a takeover remains incomprehensible, especially since any claim acquired up to that point is given up and exchanged for another diffuse “something”.
