Minimum Advertised Price Policy (MAP)
Date: 01/01/2019, Vers: 0.1
Yuuto Nutrition LTD. (“Yuuto™”) has determined that its interests are best served by adopting a minimum advertised price (“MAP”) policy. This MAP policy is designed to (i) support the Yuuto™ brand as a premium offering; and (ii) assure that our professional resellers are incentivized to provide desirable pre-sales and post-sales services to the end-users of our products. Yuuto Nutrition is confident that this policy will strengthen its competitiveness and benefit all of the professionals who resell our products.
This MAP policy applies to all resellers of the Yuuto™ products identified by Yuuto Nutrition as being covered by this policy, regardless of channel of sale, who sell, directly or indirectly, to end-users located in the United Kingdom. Yuuto Nutrition will, without assuming any liability, unilaterally impose sanctions as described in this policy against resellers who advertise Yuuto™ products at prices below those specified herein.
This MAP policy applies only to minimum advertised prices and does not apply to the price at which the products are actually sold, or to advertised prices higher than the unilateral minimum resale prices established by Yuuto Nutrition from time to time. The policy applies to all advertisements of Yuuto™ products in all media including, without limitation, flyers, posters, coupons, mailers, inserts, newspapers, magazines, catalogues, mail order catalogues, Internet or similar electronic media, television, radio and public signage.
Minimum Advertised Price.
A reseller shall be in violation of this MAP policy if it offers Yuuto™ products for sale at a net adjusted price less than the MAP established by Yuuto Nutrition. The term “net adjusted price” means the advertised price after taking into account all discounts, deductions, coupon offerings, rebates or allowances (except such rebates or other promotions that are provided by Yuuto Nutrition). Charges for taxes, shipping, delivery and insurance shall be excluded in determining the net adjusted price.

Yuuto Nutrition will not accept any communication from a reseller who has violated this MAP policy regarding the violation or the willingness of the reseller to bring its prices or practices into compliance with the MAP policy.
