BODY SPORT MINIMUM ADVERTISED PRICING (MAP) POLICY
Effective Date: January 2017
In order to maintain the brand of Body Sport (“Body Sport”) and to ensure proper promotion of its high quality products, Body Sport has instituted the following Minimum Advertised Pricing Policy ("MAP Policy"). This MAP Policy applies to the product identified on Schedule A attached hereto and incorporated herein by this reference ("MAP Products"), along with the required minimum advertised price for each MAP Product shown on Schedule A (the "MAP Price").
This MAP Policy does not apply to the actual setting of prices, and only applies to the “advertised price.” As such, this MAP Policy will not apply to point of sale signs, hangtags, barcodes, and other in store markings on products, nor will it apply to the displaying of a price during the "checkout" stage for online purchases.
Under this MAP Policy, an authorized retailer may not create or produce off-premise advertising, notices, or postings that advertise the MAP Products (including, but not limited to, any 3rd party marketplaces similar to Amazon.com, Rakuten.com and Walmart.com, electronic mail, Twitter feeds, Facebook, or other social media, direct mail pieces, radio and Internet pages, all search engine shopping sites, pop-ups, comparison search engine ads, downloads or displays) at pricing below the applicable MAP Price. Body Sport reserves the right to revise/amend the MAP Prices as set forth on Schedule A from time to time at its sole discretion and will publish on applicable websites.
The discounts permitted to be advertised under the MAP Policy may not be combined with any other discounts whatsoever. This includes coupons, rebates, and in-store discounts. Incentives such as shipping and handling (e.g. free shipping) may be offered. This policy is only applicable to the advertising methods outlined above and is not applicable to customer’s own website.
Failure to comply with this MAP Policy will result in Body Sport taking such actions as it deems appropriate and necessary, including discontinuing all shipping of MAP Products.
Should you have any questions about this MAP Policy, please submit them in writing to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Body Sport reserves the right to modify, suspend or discontinue this MAP Policy in whole or in part at any time.
This MAP Policy supersedes and replaces in their entirety all previous MAP policies. This MAP Policy shall remain in effect unless Body Sport amends, replaces or terminates it.
