Minimum Advertised Pricing (MAP) Policy :

“Dealer” as used herein means you, our customer to which this MAP Policy has been sent. The Products covered under this MAP Policy are listed in Exhibit A to this letter. All sales of Products on Exhibit A will be subject to this MAP Policy. This Policy will be enforced strictly and uniformly. The MAP Policy will help us to ensure our brand integrity and our commitment to you, our customer.
This Policy is non-negotiable. Dealers may sell Products at any price they deem appropriate. However, Dealers shall not advertise Products below the minimum advertising price established by Tecnifibre USA, Inc. In keeping with our Product’s brand images, Dealers are expected to avoid advertising used Products (other than normal demos and samples) in any advertisement related to the Products.
MAP Policy

  1. Tecnifibre USA, Inc. will maintain an updated MAP list of those performance Products that are subject to this policy. This Policy and the list of Products subject to the Policy may change at any time and from time to time by Tecnifibre USA, Inc. without advance notice to Dealers.
  2. All MAP Products listed will have a MAP retail price. The MAP retail price must be listed next to the featured Product in all advertising. This includes any website or other information distribution method that solicits consumer interest in a MAP listed Product. Tecnifibre USA, Inc. reserves the right to approve any advertising or other means of consumer information that solicits interest in the MAP listed Products. Tecnifibre USA, Inc. may elect not to continue to supply Products to Dealers who (a) are in non-compliance with this MAP Policy, (b) use advertising phrases or tactics to undermine the legitimate purposes of this MAP Policy (including but not limited to discounts offered which result in “free riding” on other retailers service investments), (c) use advertising phrases which, in Tecnifibre USA, Inc.’s reasonable discretion, constitute non-compliance with MAP Policy.
  3. If Tecnifibre USA, Inc. determines in its sole discretion, that Dealer has taken any action inconsistent with this MAP Policy, which may include advertising a MAP Product below the price listed on the attached MAP Product List, then Tecnifibre USA, Inc. may take any or all of the following actions: (i) cancel all orders from that Dealer for the given MAP Products; (ii) refuse to accept new orders for the MAP Products for a period to be determined by Tecnifibre USA, Inc. ; (iii) refuse to accept new orders for so long as the MAP Products appear on the current MAP Products List; or (iv) refuse to accept all new orders from such Dealer and terminate such Dealer’s accounts with Tecnifibre USA, Inc.
  4. Any advertisement, promotion or consumer program that attaches another product or value added offer (including free freight or any gift with purchase offer) must be approved by Tecnifibre USA, Inc. or it may be deemed a violation of this MAP policy.
  5. Any posting or advertisement to sell new Tecnifibre Products through the use of any “auction’ site or related method or re-distribution (e.g. eBay, Yahoo Auctions, Amazon) will be deemed a violation of this MAP policy, unless approved in writing by Tecnifibre USA, Inc. Therefore, Dealers and especially the E-Commerce Dealers, are not authorized to offer Tecnifibre Products for sale through any other Internet websites, including but not limited to auction sites and shipping sites. The Dealers in such instances provide no value-added distribution services in such channel, but can reasonably be viewed as merely a re-distributor to the auction site “e-tailer”.
  6. Tecnifibre USA, Inc. reserves the right at any time to determine allocations for any Dealer of all Products.
  7. Tecnifibre USA, Inc. recognizes that any authorized Tecnifibre USA, Inc. Dealer can sell any Tecnifibre Product at any price it chooses without consulting or advising Tecnifibre USA, Inc. Tecnifibre USA, Inc. does, however, reserve the right to make its own independent decision regarding Product allocations and Dealer participation in Tecnifibre USA, Inc.’s distribution network.
  8. Tecnifibre USA, Inc. sales representatives are not permitted to discuss this MAP policy or make any agreements or assurances with respect to Tecnifibre USA, Inc.’s Policies regarding MAP, Distribution, or E-commerce. This includes any consumer program or promotion that affects the attached listed products. Any questions regarding this Policy or any aspect of this Policy should be addressed in writing to the Sales Department at Tecnifibre USA, Inc.
