Dead Center Archery Products (the “Company”) has decided to adopt a Minimum Advertised Price (“MAP”) Policy (“Policy”)with respect to its archery and related products sold via various sales channels. The Company has determined that this Policy is necessary to ensure that our markets and customers continue to recognize the value of our brand and the highest quality of our products in the marketplace where the Company competes. For the Company to maintain the sterling image and powerful brand it has worked diligently to achieve in the marketplace, it is essential that the Company’s brand and products be presented in a manner that properly reflects the Company. Advertising the Company’s products for less than the minimum advertised price as described in this Policy would be inconsistent with that image.
This Policy does not constitute an agreement between you and the Company and the Company is NOT seeking a response from you.
Resellers remain free to establish their own advertising prices for all of the Company’s products. However, if the Company determines to its satisfaction that any of the Company’s products have been offered or listed at a price below the minimum advertised price set, established by the Company, the Company will consider such advertisement a violation of the MAP Policy. The Minimum Advertised Price can be found on the Company’s price list or can be obtained by contacting the Company.
