Patient One MediNutritionals™
Minimum Advertised Price (“MAP”) and Internet Resellers Policy for Practitioner Accounts
Patient One MediNutritionals is a health care professional-exclusive supplement line, sold only through verified and authorized health care practitioners. We recognize that our customers provide professional services through various means, including office dispensaries, practitioner-related storefronts and the Internet. Our MAP and Internet Resellers Policy is designed to maintain the integrity of our product line while supporting a fair and competitive sales environment for all of our customers.
Patient One practitioner-customers should note that this MAP Policy does not apply to the discounting of Patient One products to a patient when the discounting takes place within the practitioner’s office setting, or via a practitioner’s print and email advertising to a private patient base. “Patient” is defined as an individual who is treated and monitored in the practitioner’s office.
Patient One MediNutritionals may not be sold or advertised at less than the Suggested Retail Price (SRP) /Patient Price in effect at the time of advertising. Advertising media includes the Internet, mailers/emails, flyers, inserts, coupons, posters, newspapers, magazines, catalogs, mail order catalogs, etc. Any advertisements, discounts, rewards programs, special offers, sales promotions, coupons, etc. must explicitly state “Not Valid on Patient One Products.” This policy applies to volume discounts or other promotions that would cause the unit price to be less than SRP/Patient Price. Patient One reserves the right to modify SRP/Patient Price at any time and will notify customers of price modifications. Practitioners are solely responsible to comply with all applicable laws and regulations when advertising or selling Patient One products.
Actual Resale Price
Patient One MAP provisions do not establish the practitioner’s actual resale price. Practitioners are free to set the actual resale price as they deem appropriate, provided that all products checkout at or above the SRP/Patient Price (normally the page at which the end user finally purchases the product). Access to an actual resale price that is lower than SRP via the Internet may only be granted through restricted web pages protected by a unique code that is provided to patients treated in the Practitioner’s office only. This unique code may not be communicated via email, published anywhere on the website or be made known to anyone but the Practitioner’s private patients.
Customers are not permitted to sell or advertise Patient One products on the Internet without the express written permission of Patient One, or to sell our products to other businesses that will sell or advertise our products on the Internet. Patient One MediNutritionals may be sold on customer-owned sites only and in unit volumes appropriate for individual personal use only. We do not authorize or allow sales of our products on third-party sites or auction-type marketplace or classified-ads-type websites (such as eBay, Amazon, etc.). If products appear on third-party websites from untraceable sources, third-party sites are obligated to adhere to the provisions of this Policy. Customers may not use any Patient One product names, trademarks or copyrights as part of a URL (Universal Resource Locator), secondary domain name, meta-tags, key words or file names. Customers may not advertise discounted or promotional Patient One products on Internet search engines (such as Yahoo, Google, etc.).
