The reputation of Coast Science can and will be damaged if the Coast Science brand is perceived by consumers as a discounted, or off-price, brand. For that reason, we have determined that it is in the best interest of the Coast Science brand to deal only with distributors who choose to sell our products at or above the Coast Science Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) policy as outlined below.
Coast Science Internet MAP Policies:
- You are authorized to sell Coast Science products on resale sites, provided you abide by the MAP policy as outlined below and only use current and approved photos, images, and product/company description content as available on CoastScience.com.
- You are authorized to pursue Google, Bing, Yahoo, Facebook, Twitter, or any other paid for search advertising terms or remarketing advertising provided you abide by MAP policy and use current and approved content.
- Your rights to sell may be immediately terminated if you violate any terms of the MAP policy.
All individuals or companies intending to resell Coast Science products through the Internet agree to disclose all ownership or association of any kind with other affiliated websites of any type. Coast Science must be notified of any website or online storefront URL changes, launches, and/or storefront name changes prior to implementation.
Compliance with Laws: The reseller is solely responsible to comply with all applicable laws and regulations where it advertises or sells Coast Science products.
Pricing Provisions: Authorized approved resellers must abide by the MAP policy that own, operate or manage websites.
The MAP policy applies to all printed and electronic advertisements of products including, but not limited to, paid search advertising, display advertising, shopping engines, catalogs, brochures, websites, email solicitations, special offers, newsletters and electronic coupons or coupon codes.
Resellers agree to assume all liability and responsibility for the resale of Coast Science products through the Internet.
Advertising: Through the purchase of Coast Science, partners agree not to advertise through any medium of mass communication any product at less than the Suggested Retail Price (SRP) for each respective product as listed on the Coast Science product list in effect at the time of the advertising. This MAP policy prohibits the advertising of any volume discount or other promotion that would cause the per unit sales price to be advertised at less than the SRP. Similarly, any language referring to or speaking of inferred discounts that a customer may receive through a website is prohibited.
Actual Resale Price: MAP provisions do not establish the resellers’ actual resale price. Resellers are free to set the actual resale price as they deem appropriate; however, ALL Coast Science products must check-out at or above MAP price (typically the page at which the end user finally purchases the product).
Print: Collateral and Internet sites may not display a price lower than MAP for any Coast Science products.
Sanctions: Absolute adherence to the terms and conditions outlined in this policy is required for active account status. If a customer fails to comply with our terms, Coast Science shall notify them via phone, email or standard mail of the violation and immediately place the customer’s direct and distributor (if applicable) account on hold until the customer has come into compliance.
Failure to comply with the MAP policy may result in temporary or permanent revocation of the customer’s wholesale purchasing privileges, removal of distributor information on the Coast Science website, suspension of the account or termination of the account.
Coast Science reserves the right to revoke the customer’s wholesale price purchasing privileges and/or terminate the account of any customer. Violation of any such terms automatically forfeits the account holder’s ability to sell products in any capacity.
We understand that every distributor has the right to decide what products to buy and at what price to sell the products it stocks. We, too, have the right to do business only with distributors and resellers who respect our efforts to retain and build the equity underlying the Coast Science trademark. We will exercise our right to take the foregoing steps, including the cessation of business, with distributors and resellers whose practices jeopardize the premium equity behind the Coast Science brand.
From time to time the MAP policy will be updated on this webpage. Effective June 1, 2018. Revised September 24, 2019.
