However , Trafon reserves the right to discontinue doing business if a dealer chooses not to comply with the Policy. The following is a summary of our Policy which sets forth the products covered and explains exceptions and general terms of the Policy. Please understand that for legal reasons it is our Company practice not to discuss this Policy with you. However, the Policy is easy to understand and everything that you need to know about it is in this statement.

Part 1: Trafon Retail Price Policy

All Trafon products are covered by the Trafon Retail Price Policy.
Retailers should not discount below the "Suggested Retail Price" ("SRP") as set forth in the Pricing Information provided. The exceptions to this Policy are:

(1) Commercial business ( the sale of goods, not for resale, to a business generally for incentive / recognition programs - to be billed to and paid for by that business ), and military and duty free sales; and

(2) Gifts during opening events of any new stores at the new store only , for a period not exceeding one month; and

(3) Store employee and shareholder discounts; and

(4) Products discontinued by Trafon or obviously shopworn goods - all such products must be clearly marked as discontinued or shopworn and any advertisements or point of sale signage must identify the products as discontinued or shopworn; and

(5) Periodic promotional programs authorized by Trafon; and

(7) Store and / or website promotions that do not exceed 10% of the "SRP" . The "SRP" should be prominently displayed. Promotion ideas include , free or reduced shipping charges , membership discount , rewards , special events

Part 2: General

This Policy applies to the extent a dealer is authorized for any or all of the products covered by the Policy and to all sales connected with an authorized account , including but not limited to , sales procured through authorized store locations , store catalogs and the internet. It is important to note that distribution through the internet and / or catalog channels requires separate authorization by Trafon in advance to ensure consistency with the Trafon™   image.

The reduction off suggested retail price could be in the form of price discounts ( including coupons ), gifts or other promotions or any combination of these. In a gift or other promotional situation, Trafon considers the effective retail price to be the actual retail selling price of the Trafon product minus the retail value of the gift or other promotion or service.

With respect to coupons, the price paid by the consumer at checkout will be the price of the product for purposes of determining compliance with the Trafon Retail Price Policy. For example, if an item is advertised at the "Suggested Retail Price" ("SRP") and the consumer is able to get an additional 20% off with a promotional coupon, then the price of the product will not be consistent with the Trafon Retail Price Policy. Accordingly , if you choose to sell products in accordance with the Retail Price Policy, your coupon should expressly exclude Trafon from the coupon discount. Such exclusion could read as follows: "Coupon excludes Trafon."

For legal reasons, it is our Company practice not to discuss the Retail Price Policy. Accordingly, all Trafon personnel have been instructed not to discuss the Policy with anyone outside of Trafon or even to communicate to Trafon headquarters any complaints or advice that any Trafon dealers are selling any of the products covered by this Policy at prices other than those set forth in the Policy. Please do not discuss the Policy with Trafon personnel or communicate complaints or advice to Trafon personnel. Trafon will determine independently of its dealers whether products are being sold at prices other than in compliance with the Trafon Retail Price Policy.

This Policy is a unilateral statement of the terms upon which Trafon will do business. Trafon does not seek and will not accept dealer agreement to this Policy. Each dealer is free to establish prices at whatever levels it chooses. However , Trafon reserves the right to limit authorization , terminate product lines and / or terminate the entire account if a dealer chooses not to comply with this Policy.

Trafon believes that a fair price to the consumer and a reasonable margin for Trafon dealers is a necessary cornerstone of continued success for Trafon and its authorized dealers. We are convinced this Policy is necessary to protect our fine name and ensure mutual success in the future.

Trafon reserves the right at any time , in its sole discretion , to amend this and any policy in the future.
