Handground MAP Policy

Minimum Advertised Pricing (“MAP”) Policy
(United States only)

Handground LLC (“Handground”) has adopted the following Minimum Advertised Pricing Policy (“MAP Policy”) for all Handground products. This is in an effort to protect the investments of our Resellers and the reputation of the Handground brand. This MAP Policy shall apply to all Handground Resellers. Handground 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.

Guidelines

  1. No products or goods purchased from or produced by Handground shall be resold by or through any online auction or online store (such as Ebay, Amazon or other similar sites) without the express, written authority of Handground. If a reseller is planning to sell products produced by Handground in an online marketplace/store, it must be owned by the reseller.
  2. Any reseller who distributes Handground products to any entity for resale must require their customer to strictly adhere to these same MAP guidelines as set forth in this MAP Policy.
  3. This MAP Policy applies to all advertisements of Handground 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. The MAP Policy does not apply to solely on premise or in-store advertising that is not distributed to customers.
  4. Website features such as “click for price”, automated “bounce-back” pricing e-mails, pre-formatted e-mail responses, forms, and automatic price display for any items prior to being placed in a customer’s shopping cart, and other similar features are considered to be communications initiated by the dealer (rather than by the customer) and thereby constitute “advertising” under this MAP Policy.
  5. This MAP Policy also applies to any activity which Handground determines, in its sole discretion, is designed or intended to circumvent the intent of this MAP Policy, such as solicitations for ‘group purchases’ and the like.
  6. From time to time, Handground may permit resellers to advertise MAP Products at prices lower than the MAP retail price. In such events, Handground 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.
  7. “Bundling” or advertising Handground products for sale together with other products or services will violate this MAP Policy
  8. Handground may, from time to time, run promotions on selected merchandise that will include a discount off of its MAP, the details of which will be communicated in writing by Handground.
  9. Handground reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to modify, suspend or terminate the MAP with respect to some or all of the affected Products.
  10. Resellers may not sell or market Handground products in a manner that, in Fellow’s sole judgment, disparages or injures Handground products, including without limitation illegal, deceptive, improper, or “Bait and Switch” tactics.
  11. The MAP applies only to minimum advertised prices and does not apply to the price at which the products are actually sold, or to advertised prices higher than the MAP established by Handground.

Policy Enforcement

  1. If a dealer with multiple store locations violates this MAP Policy at any one store location, or on any associated website, then Handground will consider this to be a violation by the dealer.
  2. Handground reserves the right to cancel any pending orders, restrict future orders, or suspend a reseller’s account if Handground reasonably believes:
    1.  a dealer has violated the provisions of this policy; or
    2.  a dealer intends to violate this policy.
  3. Dealers are expected to provide reasonable cooperation in any Handground investigations regarding possible MAP Policy violations. Hindering, obstructing, delaying, or otherwise failing to cooperate with a Handground MAP Policy investigation is a violation of this MAP Policy.
  4. This Policy is subject to change at Handground’s sole discretion, without prior notice.
  5. The MAP Policy will be enforced by Handground in its sole discretion and without notice. 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. All questions related to this MAP Policy should be directed to: hello@handground.com
