3PI Tech Solutions MAP Policy
Effective January 1, 2022
We recognize that our distribution and reseller partners (individually, an “Authorized Reseller”; collectively, “Authorized Resellers”) invest time and resources to deliver an extraordinary customer experience through knowledgeable staff and compelling vendor presentation. To support our Authorized Resellers’ efforts, 3PI Tech Solutions Inc. (‘3PI’) wishes to establish policies that allow Authorized Resellers to earn the profits necessary to maintain the high level of customer excellence people have come to expect from our partners.
In order to successfully compete in the marketplace and to maintain the premium brand image of 3PI and its licensed brands such as Dremel DigiLab, 3PI has announced this Minimum Advertised Price Policy (this “Policy”) This Policy is intended to level the playing field for all Authorized Resellers and ensure fair competition. All sales from Authorized Resellers to end users (“End Users”) of products set forth in 3PI’s MAP Price List inside the United States shall be subject to this Policy.
3PI’s products covered and their coordinating minimum advertised prices are set forth in the MAP Price List found on 3PI’s web site at: https://3pitech.com/pages/map-policy or shall be delivered or otherwise made available by 3PI to Authorized Resellers. 3PI reserves the right from time to time to alter, modify, suspend, or cancel this Policy, the products covered, and/or the minimum resale prices.
This Policy does not restrict any Authorized Reseller’s right to establish independent advertised and/or resale prices of 3PI products. 3PI reserves the right to determine whether an Authorized Reseller has advertised 3PI products at a net advertised price less than the minimum advertised price established in this Policy. Upon such determination 3PI may, without assuming any liability, cancel all orders and may indefinitely refuse to accept new orders from such Authorized Reseller.
This Policy has been unilaterally adopted by 3PI. 3PI neither solicits nor will it accept assurances by an Authorized Reseller of acquiescence with this Policy. Nothing in this Policy shall constitute an agreement between 3PI and any Authorized Reseller of compliance with this Policy. The Authorized Reseller within its own discretion can choose to acquiesce or not acquiesce with this Policy. 3PI will not discuss conditions of acceptance related to this Policy. This Policy is nonnegotiable and will not be altered, modified, or amended for any Authorized Reseller.
Combining product(s) from the Unilateral Price list with any other product for a sales price lower than the combined price of what the two (2) products could be purchased independent of each other, shall not constitute acquiescence with this Policy.
The issuance of non-3PI announced rebates (in any form) on a product listed in the Unilateral Price List shall not constitute acquiescence with this Policy.
Advertising that requests the End User to 'see price in cart', 'click to see price', 'add to cart for best price', 'Why we do not show a price?' or a price that is struck through, no price listed or any language or graphic representation that implies, or from which the End User can infer, that the End User click through to the cart to see a price lower than that set forth in the MAP Price List, shall not constitute acquiescence with this Policy.
The offer of free shipping or financing on product(s) in the MAP Price List shall constitute acquiescence with this Policy.
The offer of a gift card redeemable for value on a future purchase with the purchase of product(s) in the MAP Price List shall constitute acquiescence with this Policy.
3PI, from time to time within its sole discretion may announce promotion prices and bundles of the products listed in the MAP Price List which shall constitute acquiescence with this Policy.
3PI’s sales personnel have no authority to modify or grant exceptions to this Policy. All questions regarding interpretation of this Policy should be directed to the 3PI MAP Policy Coordinator at: Brand-Integrity@3pitech.com.
