Minimum Advertised Pricing (Practitioner-Patient Sales ONLY):
The Minimum Advertised Price (“MAP”) Policy of Healthgevity applies to all of Healthgevity Practitioner-Customers selling its professional lines of products with the Healthgevity logo or name on the label to end-users who are patients of the practitioner-Customer. The MAP Policy is for practitioner-Customers and requires such practitioner-Customers to advertise such products at or above the Minimum Advertised Price, as noted on the “Practitioner-Patient Price List”.
Practitioner-Customers who have both their own website and a Healthgevity hosted online store may place a link to their Healthgevity online store on their own website, but may NOT advertise, communicate, or otherwise indicate that discounts may be available.
Practitioner-Customers selling directly to end-users may offer discounts privately to their own patients. Healthgevity may, from time to time, offer practitioner-Customers the ability to sell specific products at special promotional pricing.
The Minimum Advertised Prices are unilaterally set by Healthgevity and are not open to discussion or negotiation with any practitioner-Customer. Healthgevity neither seeks (nor will it accept) any assurances from a practitioner-Customer that such Customer will not deviate from this MAP Policy.
Healthgevity reserves the right to not sell or supply products to any practitioner-Customer who is affiliated with a website that violates this MAP Policy.
Customer-owned websites/domain names must be registered to the individual or the business name of the practitioner-Customer who is purchasing products from Healthgevity.
Healthgevity reserves the right to not sell or supply its products to Customers, practitioner-Customers and Distributors who are not in compliance with Healthgevity ‘s Internet Policies, who are selling or supplying Healthgevity products to individuals or entities that are not in compliance with Healthgevity’s Internet Policies and any active practice within the BioTE Medical Network.
Healthgevity ‘ policy is for all of its practitioner-Customers selling Healthgevity products on-line to sell only on Customer-owned or Healthgevity -hosted E-Commerce websites. Healthgevity does not authorize or permit sales of its professional lines of products on third-party websites (such as Amazon.com, eBay, and similar sites).
Healthgevity reserves the right to not sell or supply products to any practitioner-Customer who sells Healthgevity products on third-party websites or is an active provider within the BioTE Medical network.

In addition, the Customer will be required to immediately cease all use of Healthgevity trademarks and copyrighted materials on the Customer's website and on the Internet.
