TOTAL PEEP MAP POLICY
We recognize that our success is tied to the success of our network of select authorized distributors and dealers. We also know that our distributors and dealers invest significant time and resources to deliver an extraordinary customer experience. We want to protect their ability to do so, while at the same time discouraging price-based advertising that would be detrimental to our dealer's service and support efforts. As a result, TOTAL PEEP has unilaterally established this Minimum Advertised Price (“MAP”) Policy.
TOTAL PEEP, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to discontinue doing business with any reseller that advertises any product(s) covered by this MAP Policy at a price lower than the MAP.
All TOTAL PEEP products are covered by this policy.
The MAP Policy applies to all advertisements of MAP Products in any and all media, including but not limited to flyers, posters, coupons, mailers, inserts, newspapers, magazines, catalogs, television, radio, and public signage, as well as Internet sites, social media sites, apps, or any other electronic media.
It shall not be a violation of this MAP Policy to advertise in general that the reseller has “the lowest prices” or will match or beat its competitors’ prices, or to use similar phrases; so long as the reseller does not include any advertised price below MAP and otherwise complies with this MAP Policy.
From time to time, TOTAL PEEP may permit resellers to advertise MAP Products at prices lower than the MAP retail price. In such events, TOTAL PEEP reserves the right to modify or suspend the MAP retail price with respect to the affected products for a specified period of time by providing advance notice to all resellers of such changes.
TOTAL PEEP may offer a direct manufacturer’s rebate to customers. In such events, it shall not be a violation of this MAP Policy to advertise the availability of the manufacturer's rebate, provided that:
§ the advertisement includes a MAP-compliant price, the rebate amount, and the net price after manufacturer's rebate in the same type size and style;
§ an asterisk is placed next to the net price after manufacturer's rebate; and
§ “*after manufacturer's rebate” appears in the same area of the advertisement as the advertised product.
6. Policy Enforcement
If a dealer with multiple store locations violates this MAP Policy at any one store location, or on any associated website, then TOTAL PEEP will consider this to be a violation by the dealer.
TOTAL PEEP reserves the right to cancel any pending orders, restrict future orders, or suspend dealers' account if TOTAL PEEP reasonably believes:
§ a dealer has violated the provisions of this policy; or
§ a dealer intends to violate this policy.
TOTAL PEEP 's MAP Policy Administrator is solely responsible for determining whether a violation of the MAP Policy as occurred, as well as determining appropriate sanctions.
Waivers to this MAP Policy may be granted in TOTAL PEEP 's sole discretion by the MAP Policy Administrator in writing. TOTAL PEEP Sales, Marketing, or other personnel are not authorized to modify or grant exceptions to the MAP Policy. In the event that the MAP Policy Administrator authorizes a waiver to the MAP Policy, dealers must strictly adhere to the terms of the waiver letter. Deviation from the terms of a waiver letter is a violation of the MAP Policy.
TOTAL PEEP monitors the advertised prices of dealers, either directly or via the use of 3rd party agencies or tools. Dealers are expected to provide reasonable cooperation in any TOTAL PEEP investigations regarding possible MAP Policy violations. Hindering, obstructing, delaying, or otherwise failing to cooperate with a TOTAL PEEP MAP Policy investigation is a violation of this MAP Policy.
The MAP Policy will be enforced by TOTAL PEEP in its sole discretion and without notice. Dealers, distributors, resellers, have no right to enforce the MAP Policy. Violations of this policy may result in any of the aforementioned sanctions up to and including termination of our business relationship, as well as any available remedies at law.
