Intellinet Network Solutions® Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) Policy
Intellinet Network Solutions® (Intellinet), a registered trademark of Intracom USA, Inc., has determined that its interests are best served through the adoption of a minimum advertised price (“MAP”) policy. This MAP policy is designed to (1) avoid destructive intra-brand conflict between the distributors and resellers across our network, (2) encourage all its distributors and resellers to promote the sales of Intellinet products, and (3) maintain the value of the Intellinet brand.
This policy has been unilaterally adopted by Intellinet and will be uniformly enforced. The word “unilaterally” means one-sided, independent and/or by itself. Intellinet is not seeking approval, consent or agreement from any distributor or reseller, any assurance of adherence to the MAP Policy. It is entirely within the discretion of an Intellinet distributor or reseller whether to comply or not comply with this MAP policy; each must independently set its own pricing for Intellinet products.
Nothing in this MAP Policy or in any contract or agreement with Intellinet shall constitute an agreement between Intellinet and distributor/reseller that the distributor/reseller will comply with this MAP policy. Intellinet will not discuss any conditions of acceptance related to the MAP Policy, as it is non-negotiable, and will not be altered for any distributor or reseller.
Intellinet, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to discontinue doing business with any distributor/reseller that advertises any product(s) covered by this MAP Policy at a price lower than the MAP. Intellinet reserves the right to change, suspend, terminate or other modify its MAP Policy, from time to time, in whole or in part.
Products covered by MAP Policy
This MAP Policy applies to all Intellinet products for which a Minimum Advertised Price (“MAP”) is specified on the current Intellinet price list provided to distributors or resellers (herein “MAP Products”). Intellinet may, in its sole discretion, modify the content of the Price List from time to time, including which products are subject to this MAP Policy and the MAP.
MAP does not establish maximum advertised prices. All distributors and resellers may offer Intellinet products at any price in excess of the MAP established for such product.
Our MAP Policy does not apply to any discontinued products, refurbished products, closeouts, demos or used merchandise. Intellinet may engage in promotions with respect to these products and as such, reserves the right to modify or suspend the MAP with respect to the affected products at its sole discretion.
Intellinet may have other promotions on specific products and reserve the right to modify or suspend the MAP with respect to the affected products at its sole discretion. Such changes shall apply equally to all Intellinet distributors and resellers.
Intellinet recognizes that distributors and resellers are free to make their own decisions to advertise and sell any Intellinet product at any price they choose, without consulting or advising Intellinet. Similarly, Intellinet will exercise its right to make its own decision regarding Intellinet distributors and resellers, product allocation and new product availability. MAP 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 within the dealer’s retail location or over the telephone. Intellinet distributors and resellers are expected to unilaterally and independently determine the price at which it sells MAP Products to consumers.
