Resale Policy of Standard Process Inc.®, Standard Process Veterinary Formulas™ and MediHerb® Products
Standard Process Inc., and its subsidiaries and affiliated entities (referred to as “Standard Process”, “we” or “us”) only sells its Products to licensed health care professionals for direct resale to their patients. Health care professionals agree to professionally promote the Products and assist their patients with information and use of the Products. Health care professionals shall sell the Products only to their patients in unit volumes appropriate for individual use only. Health care professionals and their patients are expressly prohibited from reselling the Products via any third-party-facilitated retail or auction website such as eBay, Amazon.com, NexTag.com, PriceGrabber.com, Shopzilla.com, Best-Price.com or similar websites. Standard Process reserves the right to discontinue sales of the Products to health care professionals or their patient(s) by not accepting a purchase order placed on Patient Direct by Standard Process (“Patient Direct”) or standardprocess.com at any time and for any reason.
Further, health care professionals (and each of their patients to the extent applicable) must:
Create and maintain a valid patient/provider relationship and evaluate the nutritional needs of each patient to whom they sell Standard Process Products.
Not resell Products to other health care professionals or businesses or individuals with whom no patient/provider relationship exists. This restriction applies to health care professionals and their patients.
Accept responsibility for the actions of all employees, administrators, agents, contractors, or consultants associated with the health care professional’s practice and assure that such personnel comply with this policy.
Not sell, solicit or accept orders for Products via the internet or any e-commerce format, except through Patient Direct. This restriction applies to health care professionals and their patients.
Control the use of the unique individual health care professional code assigned to you upon your registration for an account with Patient Direct. It is each health care professional’s responsibility to limit use of his or her individual code to authorized personnel only and each health care professional agrees to be held liable for any use of his or her code by third persons. The health care professional agrees to promptly inform Standard Process if his or her code has been compromised.
Not advertise pricing information (including discounts, price reductions or special promotions that directly or indirectly infer the inclusion of Products) to the general public in any promotional material (including but not limited to marketing materials, advertisements, websites, sponsored web links, emails, Twitter, Facebook, banner ads, titles, file names, etc.). Any advertisements, discounts, rewards programs, coupons, special offers, sales, promotions etc. must explicitly state "Not valid on Standard Process and MediHerb products" and Products must check-out at suggested retail pricing. Patients being treated by the practitioner may receive discount pricing only in the practitioner's office. Sales to patients via Patient Direct may not be discounted. Standard Process recommends that all customers sell Standard Process Products at the suggested list price. This restriction applies to health care professionals and their patients.
Not sell Products in a retail setting direct to the general public in any manner. Licensed Pharmacies, health food stores or other retail establishments must meet each of the following requirements to maintain an account: 1) There must be a face-to-face nutritional consultation by an in-house qualified health care professional; and 2) Products must be behind the counter and/or in a non-retail designated professional only area. This restriction applies to health care professionals and their patients.
