Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):
Edwards distributors may not advertise or promote Edwards products, or cause the products to be advertised or promoted at prices discounted below the Edwards MAP Policy. This policy is made to protect the integrity of the Edwards Garment product line and our distributor network. The Edwards Garment MAP policy applies to, but is not limited to, advertising in all catalogs, direct mail, websites, in-store displays, and any and all other forms of advertising media, including the internet and any other electronic medium avaliable. You may not promote or advertise Edwards products at prices discounted more than 20% on retail pricing advertised by Edwards, when coded on an "A". Any quantity discounts may not be advertised below MAP price.
In the event Edwards receives information that a party is advertising an Edwards' product below MAP, Edwards will contact the party in non-compliance. Once Edwards has contacted the party, the pricing must be corrected within three business days. If the advertised pricing has not been corrected in three days, Edwards will cease to supply the offending party. This sales policy is not a contract, nor an offer to form a contract. Edwards is not asking for and will not accept any agreement affirming your compliance with this policy. This policy simply describes the ciircumstances under which Edwards may in its sole discretion, choose to continue selling its products to you. If Edwards believes that you have failed to comply with this policy, Edwards may, with or without written notice to you, stop selling Edwards products to you or terminate the relationship.
