Minimum Advertised Price Policy
SANUS is the designer and manufacturer of products that are advertised, marketed and sold using copyrighted materials and under the trademarks, brands, or tradenames belonging to it. The following is SANUS' policy regarding the advertising of product prices.
1. Purpose: SANUS' goal in enacting this policy is to avoid depreciation of, or damage to, the trademarks, brands or tradenames under which its products are sold.
2. Minimum Advertised Pricing: SANUS hereby advises each of its dealers, distributors and retailers that advertising products using SANUS copyrighted materials (including photographs from the online photo library or SANUS-created product descriptions) at a price below the manufacturer suggested retail price as listed or published by SANUS in its most recent price list (the MSRP) may lead to certain consequences, including SANUS' discontinuance of its business relationship with such dealer, distributor or retailer. For the purposes of this policy, the term "advertising" shall include any price listing accessible to consumers directly via the World Wide Web, provided that "advertising" shall not include a price quotation sent via email to a consumer at the consumer's request. SANUS expects that products will be advertised in print, on television or radio, or on the Internet by its dealers, distributors or retailers at no less than MSRP. SANUS' intention and policy is not to engage any dealer, distributor or retailer that advertises products at prices below MSRP. It is the decision of the dealer, distributor or retailer to advertise at any price they choose, as long as it is not less than MSRP.
3. Limitation of Policy: Without limiting any of the foregoing, no part of this policy is intended to affect resale prices or require any dealer, distributor or retailer to resell products at the MSRP price. Compliance with this policy remains at all times solely in the discretion of each dealer, distributor or retailer.
4. Changes in MSRP and Products: All products are subject to this policy, including any new product added by SANUS to its lineup and bearing the SANUS name. SANUS may at any time, in its sole discretion, revise the MSRP for any product manufactured by it. Each addition and each revision shall be effective at such time specified by SANUS in its pricing schedule, which will be provided to each dealer or distributor. SANUS' last price lists are available to all dealers, distributors and retailers at SANUS' offices. All changes of such prices, as and when made, will also be so available.
5. Discounts, Premiums, etc.: Should any dealer, distributor or retailer advertise the giving of any article of value in connection with the sale of any products, or the making of any concession in connection with the sale of any of such products, which results in a sale by dealer, distributor or retailer at net prices, this shall represent a violation of this policy.
6. Price Reductions, Inventory Reduction & Clearance: SANUS may exempt certain designated designs, models and items from this policy for the purpose of inventory reduction and model closeouts.
7. SANUS will make all decisions concerning this policy unilaterally.
Dealers, distributors and others with questions regarding this policy should contact SANUS at 651.484.7988.
