CRG MINIMUM ADVERTISED PRICING POLICY

rev 6-11-18

 

In order to preserve its reputation for providing customers with high-value products and strong after-sales support, and to further enhance the CRG brand image and its competitiveness in the marketplace, Constructors Racing Group, LLC (hereafter to be referred to as CRG) is instituting a policy of minimum advertised price standards for CRG products. This Minimum Advertised Pricing Policy (MAP Policy) will become effective July 1st, 2018, and will apply to all distributors and retailers, including catalogs and internet retailers (collectively, Resellers), who resell CRG products to end-users located in the United States.

 

CRG greatly values the efforts of all Resellers to distribute CRG products and support our customers. This MAP Policy is adopted for the benefit of all Resellers and will be uniformly enforced.

 

This MAP Policy shall work under the following guidelines:

 

  1. CRG will, from time to time, publish a Schedule of Manufacturerʼs Suggested Retail Prices (MSRP Schedule) which may be amended or adjusted by CRG at any time in its sole discretion. The MSRP Schedule will identify the effective date, the CRG products that are subject to this MAP Policy and the manufacturerʼs suggested retail price (MSRP) for those products. Each advertisement of a CRG product identified in the MSRP Schedule that is more than 10% below the MSRP will be a violation of this MAP Policy. CRG products not specifically identified in the MSRP Schedule are not subject to this MAP Policy. The current MSRP Schedule is enclosed.
  2. This MAP Policy applies to all advertisements of CRG products listed on the MSRP Schedule in any and all media, including, but not limited to, flyers, posters, coupons, mailers, inserts, newspapers, magazines, catalogs, mail order catalogs, e-mail newsletters, e-mail solicitations, internet or similar electronic media, television, radio, and public signage. This MAP Policy is not applicable to any in-store advertising that is displayed only in the store and not distributed to any customer(s).
  3. The inclusion in advertising of free or discounted products (whether made by CRG or another manufacturer) with a product covered by this MAP Policy would be contrary to this MAP Policy if it has the effect of discounting the advertised price of the covered CRG product more than 10% below the MSRP.
  4. A visible strikeout, deletion, or alteration of any price in any internet advertising is strictly prohibited.
  5. This MAP Policy applies only to advertised prices and does not apply to the price at which CRG products are actually sold or offered for sale to an individual consumer within Resellersʼ retail location or over the telephone. Resellers remain free to sell these products at any prices they choose under these circumstances.
  6. This MAP Policy does not establish maximum advertised prices. All Resellers may offer CRG products at any price in excess of the MSRP.
  7. Internet auctions may not display or have reserved bid or other acceptable prices more than 10% below the MSRP.
  8. CRG must be specifically excluded from any type of advertised store-wide sale or promotion if the promotion is perceived to discount CRG more than 10% below the MSRP. Advertised coupons, dealer bucks, etc. are allowed as long as they are for future store-wide purchases only. Dealers must not include statements in advertising or options related to CRG which may lead consumers to perceive the offer of prices is below 10% off MSRP.
  9. Pricing listed on an internet site is considered an advertised priceand must adhere to this MAP Policy. Once the pricing is associated with an intent to purchase (added to shopping cart or order), the price becomes the selling price and is not bound by this MAP Policy. Discounts applied at checkout to the entire order based on a customerʼs purchasing history with the Reseller, such as discounts for frequent shoppers, do not violate this MAP Policy.
  10. This MAP Policy is solely within CRGs discretion and authority acting through the duly authorized managers of CRG. No employee or sales representative of CRG has any authority to discuss, modify or grant exceptions to this MAP Policy. Any representation or action by any employee, sales representative or persons not specifically authorized to discuss, modify or grant exceptions to this MAP Policy under this paragraph is unauthorized and invalid. All questions about this MAP Policy should be in writing and directed via U.S. Mail to MAP Policy Administrator, CRG, c/o MAG, 17771 Mitchell North, Irvine, CA 92614 or via e-mail to mapadministrator@CRG.com who will respond only in writing. No oral communications about this MAP Policy are authorized. The MAP Policy Administrator shall be solely responsible for determining whether a violation of the policy has occurred, communicating decisions to Resellers regarding the policy, and receiving any communications regarding sanctions imposed under this MAP Policy. Any action taken by CRG under this MAP Policy shall be without liability to CRG.
  11. From time to time, CRG may choose to offer special promotions on certain products. In such an event, we reserve the right to modify or suspend this MAP Policy in whole or in part by notifying all Resellers of the duration and nature of the change. CRG further reserves the right to adjust the MSRP with respect to all or certain products at its sole discretion. Such changes shall apply equally to all Resellers.
  12. Distributors of CRG products will supply a copy of this MAP Policy to any new or existing Reseller for their records.
  13. The terms of this MAP Policy are confidential and should not be disclosed to other parties.
