Science in Sport 

MINIMUM ADVERTISED PRICE POLICY 

 

Effective immediately, Science in Sport has unilaterally established this policy setting the Minimum Advertised Price (“MAP Policy”) of selected Science in Sport products, which shall apply to resellers that sell Science in Sport products in the United States, and all forms of reseller advertising including mailings, catalogs, displays at consumer exhibitions and shows, and any and all other forms of advertising media, including, without limitation, the Internet and any other electronic network (collectively, “Resellers”).  

An important part of growing a high-quality brand is maintaining price points that reflect our products’ true value. Therefore, we have implemented a MAP Policy that is designed to: 1) prevent the erosion of our products’ perceived value, and 2) maintain sufficient profit margins so our retailers can provide customers the shopping experience and service they expect.  

Advertising and promotional activities play a critical role in establishing the image and reputation of the Science in Sport brand. We believe that the company’s customers rely on advertising to establish their understanding of our products. Science in Sport’s MAP Policy is designed to ensure that all product advertising focuses on features, benefits, guarantees and quality. This advertising is essential to ensure the correct value of the products is perceived in the minds of consumers.  

Science in Sport believes that its MAP Policy will help in establishing the long-term value of the Science in Sport brand in consumers’ minds and thus make it a more profitable line for our Resellers.  

Resellers who violate this MAP Policy will be subject to loss of their eligibility to purchase products covered by the MAP Policy.  

  1. The Science in Sport MAP Policy shall apply to the products listed on Exhibit A, and may be adjusted from time to time by Science in Sport in its sole discretion.  

  1. The Science in Sport MAP Policy applies equally to Science in Sport direct Resellers as well as those who purchase product through any distributor of Science in Sport products. 

  1. Resellers who provide Science in Sport products to persons or entities who resell the products, are responsible for ensuring that those persons and entities’ pricing complies with the MAP Policy. Resellers who continue to provide products to persons or entities which are known to disregard the MAP Policy will be considered in violation of this Policy and may be canceled immediately.  

  1. Science in Sport Resellers operating within the United States may not sell or offer to sell our product outside of the United States through internet, physical based sales, or equivalents thereof. The Science in Sport® MAP Policy does not apply to the purchase pages or any “check-out page” of any Reseller’s website or related internet site (i.e., the page on which the consumer actually completes the purchase of the product).  

  1. The MAP Policy applies only to advertised prices and does not apply to the price at which the products are actually sold or offered for sale to an individual consumer. Further, this MAP Policy does not preclude Science in Sport Resellers from advertising the availability of non-product specific coupons for lower sales prices at checkout. Science in Sport Resellers remain free to sell the products covered by Science in Sports’ MAP Policy at any prices they choose.  

  1. The MAP Policy does not in any way limit the ability of any Reseller to advertise that “they have the lowest prices” or, they “will meet or beat any competitor’s price,” that consumers should “call for a price” or similar phrases as long as the price advertised or listed for the products is not less than the MAP Policy price established by Science in Sport for such products.  

  1. The MAP Policy does not establish maximum advertised prices at which products may be sold. All Resellers may advertise Science in Sport products at any price in excess of the minimum advertised price established by Science in Sport for such products.  

  1. Sale of Science in Sport® products on any internet auction sites (eBay, eBid, etc.) is a violation of this Policy and is not permitted.  

  1. Sale of Science in Sport® products on any third-party e-commerce platform (Alibaba, Amazon, Buy.com, Jet.com, Newegg, Overstock, Rakuten, Sears, and Walmart, etc.) is not permitted unless Reseller has been approved in writing by Science in Sport. 

  1. The MAP Policy does not apply to solely on premise or in-store advertising that is not distributed to customers.  

  1. Retailers may, with prior written approval from Science in Sport participate in authorized Science in Sport brand sales during the months of April, May, July, September and November. Product sales must last no longer than 10 days and the maximum discount that can be applied is 40% off the retail price.  

  1. In addition, Science in Sport brand closeouts may be advertised on-line with advertised prices of up to 50% off the retail price published by Science in Sport.   

  1. From time to time, Science in Sport may implement promotions for products covered by the MAP Policy. Science in Sport reserves the right to modify or suspend the MAP Policy at any time with respect to the affected products. Science in Sport further reserves the right to adjust the MAP Policy with respect to all or certain products at its sole discretion upon at least thirty (30) business days’ advance written notice to Resellers.  

  1. This MAP Policy also applies to any activity which Science in Sport determines, in its sole discretion, is designed or intended to circumvent the intent of this MAP Policy.  

  1. In the event there is a violation of the MAP Policy, Science in Sport will take the following actions:  

  1. First Violation. Should a Reseller violate the MAP Policy and not correct the violation within 24 hours after being notified of the violation in writing by Science in Sport, the Reseller will be suspended from acquiring Science in Sport products for thirty (30) days.   

  1. Second Violation. Should a Reseller commit a second violation, Reseller shall be suspended from acquiring Science in Sport products for one hundred twenty (120) days.  

  1. Third Violation. Should a Reseller commit a third violation, (i) Reseller shall be suspended from acquiring Science in Sport products for one (1) year after which time such Reseller would have to apply to purchase Science in Sport products; and (ii) all unpaid balances outstanding to Science in Sport at the time of violation shall become immediately due and payable. Science in Sport reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to determine all violations of its MAP Policy and further reserves the right to waive any violations of the MAP Policy in its sole discretion, provided, however, that no such waiver shall be deemed or constitute a waiver of any subsequent violation(s) and the resulting enforcement of the MAP Policy. Based on the severity of the violation, Science in Sport, at its sole discretion, may escalate any infraction and its associated consequences to the level of a third violation. 

  1. This MAP Policy is solely Science in Sport’s decision and responsibility. No employee or sales representative of Science in Sport® has any authority to discuss or modify this MAP Policy and any action of any person, which claims to modify this MAP Policy or to solicit or obtain the agreement of any person to the MAP Policy, is unauthorized and invalid. No oral communications about this Policy are authorized. The foregoing MAP Policy and any MAP Policy product listing is subject to modification or discontinuance by Science in Sport, in its sole and absolute discretion, at any time. Any action taken by Science in Sport under this MAP Policy shall be without liability to Science in Sport
