Additional Reseller Terms and MAP Policy
A. Distribution Channels Policy.
All Reseller sales and pricing must be consistent with our Minimum Advertised Price Policy (“MAP Policy”). All sales on eBay, Amazon, any of their affiliates’ websites or any other auction website or online marketplace ARE STRICTLY PROHIBITED by Resellers unless there is written approval from Grande Cosmetics. ANY RESELLER FOUND TO BE IN VIOLATION OF THIS RULE AGREES TO PAY AN AMOUNT OF $5000.00 (USD) FOR EACH LISTING ON ANY AND ALL WEBSITES AS LIQUIDATED DAMAGES (AND NOT A PENALTY).
B. MAP Policy.
Grande Cosmetics has determined that its interests are best served through the adoption of this MAP Policy. This MAP Policy is designed to (1) protect Reseller margins so that desirable pre-sales and post-sales services and infrastructure can be provided by our channel partners (2) support the Grande Cosmetics brand as a premium offering; and (3) avoid destructive intra-brand channel conflict. This MAP Policy has been unilaterally adopted by Grande Cosmetics and will be uniformly enforced. In the event a Reseller chooses not to follow the Grande Cosmetics MAP Policy, sanctions may be unilaterally imposed by Grande Cosmetics. Violations of the MAP Policy shall be determined by Grande Cosmetics in its sole discretion. Grande Cosmetics will not accept any communication from a Reseller who has violated this MAP Policy. In addition to the above, failure to adhere to the MAP Policy will be a factor taken into consideration in the determination of the acceptance or continuation of Reseller's participation in the Grande Cosmetics Reseller program. Grande Cosmetics products not specifically identified in this MAP Policy are still subject to it. Each advertisement below the minimum advertised price will be a violation of the MAP policy. The MAP Policy applies to all advertisements of specific Grande Cosmetics products in and all media including, without limitation, flyers, posters, coupons, mailers, inserts, newspapers, magazines, catalogs, mail order catalogs, Internet or similar electronic media, television, radio and public signage.
MAP Policy Coverage
This MAP Policy covers all Grande Cosmetics Resellers wherever located. Although Resellers remain free to establish their own resale prices, Grande Cosmetics will, without assuming any liability, unilaterally impose sanctions as described in this MAP Policy against Resellers who advertise applicable Grande Cosmetics products at prices below those specified herein. Grande Cosmetics will not discuss any conditions of acceptance related to this MAP Policy, as it is nonnegotiable, and will not be altered for any Reseller. Grande Cosmetics neither solicits, nor will it accept, any assurance of compliance with this MAP Policy. Nothing in this MAP policy or in any other contract or agreement with Grande Cosmetics shall constitute an agreement between Grande Cosmetics and reseller that the reseller will comply with this MAP Policy. This MAP Policy applies only to minimum advertised prices and does not apply to the final sale price at which the products are actually sold, or to advertised prices higher than the unilateral minimum resale prices established by Grande Cosmetics from time to time.
Minimum Advertised Price
The current listing of products and each applicable minimum advertised price is published on the Site. To see the minimum advertised price, review each product’s respective page. The products and minimum advertised price may be changed from time to time at Grande Cosmetics' sole discretion. Resellers are responsible for remaining current and conforming with the MAP Policy, products and pricing.
MAP Policy Modifications
Grande Cosmetics reserves the right at any time to modify, suspend, or discontinue the MAP Policy in whole or in part or designate promotional periods during which the terms of the MAP Policy change or designate periods of time during which the MAP Policy is not applicable. MAP Policy modifications shall be made available on this Site.
Grande Cosmetics is not seeking agreement from any Reseller to adhere to this MAP Policy. It is entirely within the discretion of the Reseller whether to comply or not comply, but Grande Cosmetics may elect to not permit a Reseller to purchase products in its sole discretion.
GRANDE COSMETICS' SALES PERSONNEL HAVE NO AUTHORITY TO MODIFY OR GRANT EXCEPTIONS TO THIS MAP POLICY OR HAVE ANY COMMUNICATIONS WITH ANY RESELLER REGARDING VIOLATIONS OF THIS MAP POLICY.
All questions or comments regarding this MAP Policy are to be directed to the policy administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org. The policy administrator shall be solely responsible for determining whether a violation of the policy has occurred, communicating decisions to resellers regarding the policy and receiving any communication regarding sanctions imposed under this policy.
C. Arbitration Agreement.
By using this Site, you agree that Grande Cosmetics, at its sole discretion, may require that:
(b) Judgment upon such arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.
(c) Under no circumstances will a claimant be permitted to obtain awards for punitive, incidental or consequential damages, or any other damages, including attorneys’ fees, other than participant’s actual out-of-pocket expenses (i.e., costs associated with purchasing a product). You hereby waive your right to same, and also waive the right to have damages multiplied or increased.
(d) Any award in an arbitration initiated under this clause shall be limited to monetary damages and shall include no injunction or direction to any party other than the direction to pay a monetary amount. Further, the arbitrator(s) shall have no authority to award punitive, consequential or other damages not measured by the prevailing party’s actual damages in any arbitration initiated under this section, except as may be required by statute.
