MINIMUM ADVERTISED PRICING (MAP) AND FDA/FTC COMPLIANCE POLICIES
Results RNA brand supplements are sold through licensed healthcare professionals and approved wholesalers. This policy is designed to maintain the use of Results RNA products under appropriate professional guidance. The Policy applies to all Results RNA distributors, dealers and resellers located in all countries where the Results RNA products are sold (collectively, the “Resellers”).
These Policies are subject to change at any time by Results RNA, in its sole discretion.
I.MINIMUM ADVERTISED PRICING POLICY
Any website on which Results RNA Products are advertised for sale must be owned or directly controlled by the reseller or distributor.
The use of any commercial website or commercial marketplace (Amazon.com, eBay, etc.) for the sale of Results RNA Products is strictly prohibited.
The Minimum Advertised Price (“MAP”) for the Results RNA Products shall be 100% of the suggested retail price, as shown on the most current Results RNA price sheet/order form.
This Policy is unilateral, non-negotiable and will not be altered for any Reseller.
The Minimum Advertised Pricing Policy pertains to all forms of advertising, including Internet advertising on any Internet website including any online or Internet ads, campaigns or coupons with respect to the sale of Results RNA Products as well as sponsored links, websites operated by, affiliated with, and/or linked to the Reseller’s website(s).
No Results RNA employee or sales representative has any authority to modify or alter this Policy or to negotiate this Policy or any agreement with respect to any Reseller.
If, after making an investigation into any alleged or discovered Policy violation, and Results RNA determines to its satisfaction that a Reseller has advertised any Results RNA Products below the MAP price, or if it is determined that the Results RNA Products sold by a Reseller to any other person or entity which engages in Internet Advertising or advertises any Results RNA Products at a net resale price less than the MAP price, Results RNA may take one or more of the following steps:
Step 1: The Reseller will be notified in writing of the violation. A phone call or email might also be placed to notify the Reseller. The Reseller will then have five (5) business days to correct such violation and come into compliance with the MAP policy.
Step 2: If the Reseller fails to correct the violation within five (5) calendar days from the date the written notice was provided, Results RNA will immediately suspend sales of the Results RNA Products to the Reseller. The suspension will last for a period of thirty (30) calendar days, during which Results RNA will remove the Reseller from its list of Results RNA Authorized Resellers.
Step 3: Following the end of the thirty (30) day period referenced in Step 2 above, and provided that the Reseller did not otherwise violate the MAP policy during the thirty (30) day suspension period, Results RNA will reinstate the Reseller to full status. If the Reseller continues to be in violation of the MAP policy at the end of the thirty (30) day suspension period, it will be considered a second violation.
Second Violation: If a second violation of the MAP policy by the Reseller occurs in a twelve (12) month period, the Reseller will be notified that if the violation is not corrected within twenty- four (24) hours, Results RNA will immediately cease doing business with the Reseller and remove the Reseller from its list of Results RNA Authorized Resellers. Results RNA will not sell to the Reseller again except upon formal reapplication by the Reseller and acceptance of the Reseller of all terms and conditions as defined by Results RNA and only upon approval by Results RNA, which may be granted or withheld in its sole and absolute discretion.
II.FDA and FTC COMPLIANCE
Results RNA, LLC is committed to full compliance with the laws and regulations enforced by the FDA and the FTC, as well as all state and government agencies. To this point, it is imperative that all advertisements, product descriptions, social media platforms, consumer testimonials and related documents maintain compliance with these laws and regulations. Accordingly, Results RNA will monitor licensed reseller activity for compliance on an ongoing basis.
The FDA defines the types of statements that may be used in product names and descriptions. Called structure/function claims, these claims are statements that describe the effect a dietary supplement may have on the structure or function of the body.
Structure/ function claims cannot (1) contain the name, or a recognizable portion of the name, of a disease; and (2) use terms such as “cure,” “treat,” “correct,” “prevent,” or other terms that suggest treatment or prevention of a disease.
Product Descriptor Examples
Product XXXX promotes a healthy inflammatory response and the maintenance of healthy joints.
Product XXXX reduces inflammation and provides relief for pain from overused joints and muscles.
Descriptive Word Examples
Acceptable:(providing there is no reference to disease)
Promotes, supports, regulates, maintains
Also, adding the word “may” is useful is steering clear of compliance problems.
Cure, relieve, heal, treat
If a reseller is found to be in frequent or continued violation of the permissible range of claims for products, after having been previously notified by Results RNA, Results RNA will take action, which includes termination of the relationship if the violation is not corrected within five (5) calendar days.
