CAN-PACIFIC ENTERPRISES (dba. DYNASTY FIREPLACES)
MAP POLICY FOR AUTHORIZED RESELLERS
1. POLICY STATEMENT
DYNASTY FIREPLACES, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to discontinue doing business with any reseller that advertises any product(s) covered by this MAP policy at a price lower that the MAP.
Authorized Reseller means a dealer or retailer authorized by DYNASTY FIREPLACES to sell products manufactured or assembled by DYNASTY FIREPLACES. This Policy applies to the operation regions of Canada, and USA and its administrative regions.
2. GENERAL GUIDELINES
The products covered by this policy are listed in the price list provided to the retailer by DYNASTY FIREPLACES, or products submitted through the dealer’s own online channel by DYNASTY FIREPLACES. DYNASTY FIREPLACES may in its sole discretion modify this list from time to time.
DYNASTY FIREPLACES recognizes that dealers are free to make their own decisions to advertise and sell any DYNASTY FIREPLACES product at any price they choose, without consulting or advising DYNASTY FIREPLACES. Similarly, DYNASTY FIREPLACES will exercise its right to make its own decisions regarding the DYNASTY FIREPLACES Authorized Reseller Program, supplemental marketing materials, point-of-purchase displays, product allocation, new product availability, or future promotional, joint marketing, or sponsorship programs.
The MAP policy applies to advertised prices, not the price at which MAP products are actually sold or offered for sale to an individual in-store or over the telephone.
DYNASTY FIREPLACES believes in maintaining a well-regulated and fair marketplace for all its authorized resellers. Please visit support.dynastyfireplaces.com for more information on our retail policies.
3. ADVERTISING GUIDELINES
The MAP policy applies to all advertisements of MAP products in any and all media, including but not limited to flyers, posters, coupons, mailers, inserts, newspapers, magazines, catalogs, television, radio, and public signage, as well as internet sites, social media sites, apps, or any other electronic media.
The MAP policy does not apply to solely on-premise or in-store advertising that is not distributed to customers
Website features such as “click for price," automated “bounce-back” pricing e-mails, pre-formatted e-mail responses, forms, automatic price display for any items prior to being placed in a customer’s shopping cart and other similar features are considered to be communications initiated by the dealer (rather than by the customer) and thereby constitute “advertising” under this MAP policy.
It shall not be a violation of this MAP policy to advertise that a customer may “call for price” or “email for price," or to use similar language, specifically with respect to DYNASTY FIREPLACES products, so long as no price is listed.
This MAP policy also applies to any activity which DYNASTY FIREPLACES determines, in its sole discretion, is designed or intended to circumvent the intent of this MAP policy, such as solicitations for "group purchases" and the like.
It shall not be a violation of this MAP policy to advertise in general that the reseller has “the lowest prices” or will match or beat its competitors’ prices, or to use similar phrases; so long as the reseller does not include any advertised price below MAP and otherwise complies with this MAP policy.
From time to time, DYNASTY FIREPLACES may permit resellers to advertise MAP products at prices lower than the MAP retail price. In such events, DYNASTY FIREPLACES reserves the right to modify or suspend the MAP retail price with respect to the affected products for a specified period of time by providing advance notice to all resellers of such changes.
From time to time, DYNASTY FIREPLACES may offer a direct manufacturer’s rebate to customers. In such events, it shall not be a violation of this MAP policy to advertise the availability of the manufacturer's rebate, provided that:
i. the advertisement includes a MAP-compliant price, the rebate amount, and the net price after manufacturer's rebate in the same type size and style;
ii. an asterisk is placed next to the net price after manufacturer's rebate; and
iii. “after manufacturer's rebate” appears in the same area of the advertisement as the advertised product.
4. POLICY ENFORCEMENT
If a dealer with multiple store locations violates this MAP policy at any one store location, or on any associated website, then DYNASTY FIREPLACES will consider this to be a violation by the dealer.
DYNASTY FIREPLACES reserves the right to cancel any pending orders, restrict future orders, or suspend dealers' account if DYNASTY FIREPLACES reasonably believes:
i. a dealer has violated the provisions of this policy; or
ii. a dealer intends to violate this policy.
DYNASTY FIREPLACES's MAP policy Administrator is solely responsible for determining whether a violation of the MAP policy has occurred, as well as determining appropriate sanctions.
Waivers to this MAP policy may be granted in DYNASTY FIREPLACES's sole discretion by the Client Account Administrator, other personnel are not authorized to modify or grant exceptions to the MAP Policy. In the event that the MAP policy Administrator authorizes a waiver to the MAP policy, dealers must strictly adhere to the terms of the waiver letter. Deviation from the terms of a waiver agreement is a violation of the MAP policy.
DYNASTY FIREPLACES reviews the advertised prices of dealers, either directly or via the use of third-party agencies or tools. Dealers are expected to provide reasonable cooperation in any DYNASTY FIREPLACES investigations regarding possible MAP policy violations. Hindering, obstructing, delaying, or otherwise failing to cooperate with a DYNASTY FIREPLACES MAP policy investigation is a violation of this MAP policy.
The MAP policy will be enforced by DYNASTY FIREPLACES in its sole discretion and without notice. Dealers, distributors, and resellers have no right to enforce the MAP policy. Violations of this policy may result in any of the aforementioned sanctions up to and including termination of our business relationship, as well as any available remedies at law. All questions, including request for updated MAP price lists, related to this MAP policy should be directed in email to email@example.com .
