Thorne Research Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) Policy
The Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) is the retail price that is set for each Thorne Research product on our current Retail Price List. Our MAP policy applies to practitioner-customers who resell Thorne Research products online, including practitioner-customers who own, operate, or manage online estorefronts, websites, clinics, or pharmacies. To maintain consistency and fairness, the Minimum Advertised Price for individual Thorne Research products is not subject to being negotiated with a practitioner-customer. Our practitioner-customers should be aware that our MAP policy does not apply to the discounting of Thorne Research products when the discounting takes place inside the practitioner’s office to the practitioner’s patient base. The MAP policy prohibits volume discounts or other promotional practices that would cause the unit price of a product to be advertised at less than the designated Retail Price prior to the product being added to the shopping cart. The MAP policy applies to the advertised price of every Thorne Research product in any and all media, including, flyers, posters, coupons, emails, inserts, newspapers, magazines, catalogs, mail order catalogs, online, and television. Thorne Research reserves the right to discontinue selling its products to any practitioner-customer who is affiliated with a website that is violating our MAP policy. At a minimum, a first violation of our MAP policy will almost always result in the suspension of the practitioner-customer's account. When a practitioner-customer fails to comply with our MAP policy, a Thorne Research representative will notify the practitioner via telephone or email of the violation, and a “hold” can be placed on the practitioner’s account until the online pricing comes into compliance. If a practitioner repeatedly violates the MAP policy, then Thorne Research reserves the right to permanently revoke the practitioner’s wholesale purchasing privileges and, in particular instances, to terminate the practitioner’s account.
Thorne Research Internet Sales Authorized Distributor Policy
For Practitioner-Based Publicly Advertised Internet Sales
Thorne Research has always acknowledged the merits of online commerce for our health-care practitioner-customers and their patients.
• By rigorously enforcing our Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) policy we have worked diligently to ensure that no practitioner is at a competitive disadvantage due to online discounting.
• Furthermore, we have always strived to ensure appropriate communication, medical education, and patient care standards for online resellers.
• However, notwithstanding our diligent efforts, a consistent number of MAP violations continue to occur on a regular basis. Furthermore, our long-held concern has not been resolved regarding the quality of care that patients receive who purchase our products through multiple proprietary e-storefronts and third-party ecommerce platforms, such as Amazon.com, Jet.com, ebay.com, etc.
• After careful evaluation and due consideration, Thorne Research has come to the conclusion that a different model is needed for the sale of our nutritional supplement products on the Internet; in particular, a model that ensures pricing parity and appropriate patient support.
Therefore, as of May 1, 2016, Thorne Research has extended exclusive purchasing privileges to
a single authorized Practitioner-Based Amazon account and a single authorized proprietary estorefront
account. Thus, all other publicly advertised Internet sales are prohibited.
Thorne Research believes this Internet sales policy:
• Ensures that patient inquiries are addressed promptly and accurately.
• Streamlines MAP compliance investigation and enforcement efforts.
• Ensures accurate product tracking in the event of a product recall.
• Ensures proper tracking and resolution of adverse events.
• Ensures compliance with California’s Proposition 65.
• Improves patient communications and care.
Corporate Internet Reseller Policy
I. Introduction and Rationale
The Douglas Laboratories Internet Reseller Policy governs the internet resale of products from Douglas
Laboratories, a healthcare professional nutritional supplement company. This policy is provided to all new
and existing healthcare professional (HCP) customers as a privilege and benefit of being a valued customer
of Douglas Laboratories. Douglas Laboratories believes the guidance of a qualified and approved health
professional is essential in order to maximize the effectiveness of our professional strength supplements;
therefore, with few exceptions, only approved licensed healthcare professionals may order directly from
Douglas Laboratories. All HCPs must submit their current license, degree or health practitioner certificate
for Douglas Laboratories’ review prior to being granted approval to establish an account. In addition,
Douglas Laboratories chooses to promote its supplements and provide special wholesale pricing only to
those healthcare professionals who advertise pricing that Douglas Laboratories deems sufficient to support
a high level of service and to encourage the commitment and investment of our customers in the brand.
Douglas Laboratories reserves the right to deny any application or revoke purchasing privileges at any
time. Decisions regarding this policy are Douglas Laboratories’ alone, and this policy can be amended at
any time. Such amendments will be communicated via mail and/or email to all involved parties.
II. Policies and Restrictions
a. Authorized Resellers: Only authorized healthcare professionals are allowed to sell Douglas
Laboratories branded products through their website. An acceptable HCP reseller is someone who
maintains and has submitted a current medical license, degree or certificate for Douglas Laboratories’
verification and approval. Such approved licensed HCP customers may resell HCP exclusive products
through a website where he/she is accessible. Please note a “storefront” on Amazon.com is not considered
an HCP website under this policy. Sale of Douglas Laboratories’ products on Amazon.com violate
agreements with third parties and is strictly prohibited (See II.j. below).
b. The HCP Internet Sales Channel: The internet is a means of communication, and opening the Douglas
Laboratories brand to internet sales does not change the nature of the sales channel from an HCP channel to
a DTC (direct to customer)/ retail channel. The internet virtualizes the traditional pattern of the HCPpatient
relationship. HCP customers shall sell products in unit volumes appropriate for individual personal
112 Technology Drive

c. Copyright and Trademark: The philosophy and integrity of the Douglas Laboratories brand must be
consistently protected at all times. Content displayed on the Douglas Laboratories website, in brochures,
advertisements, product packaging, product information sheets and other marketing materials are
copyrighted and trademarked. All content appearing on or associated with all privately labeled product, is
copyrighted and trademarked as well.
d. Brand Representation: The unauthorized use of copyrights, trademarks, logos, manufacturing images,
product images, copy or other Douglas Laboratories information on the internet without expressed consent
is prohibited. All photos, images, and product and/or company description content pertaining to or
describing Douglas Laboratories must be current and obtained from Douglas Laboratories directly. This
information cannot be pulled from the Douglas Laboratories website or other internet sources, unless
specifically directed in writing by Douglas Laboratories. This information may be updated and amended at
any time. Such amendments will be communicated via mail and/or email to all involved parties.
e. Internet Landscape: When listed on a website or online storefront for sale, the Douglas Laboratories
name or logo and all associated product information shall be displayed and classified as a “Healthcare
Practitioner Brand”. Examples of this include but are not limited to displaying the Douglas Laboratories
brand on a distinct page of the website entitled, “Healthcare Practitioner Brands”, or designating it as such
through a symbol or abbreviation when listed in the brand index.
f. Information Disclosure: All individuals or companies intending to resell Douglas Laboratories products
through the internet agree to disclose all ownership or association of any kind with other affiliated websites
of any type. Douglas Laboratories must be notified of any website or online storefront url changes,
launches, and/or storefront name changes prior to implementation. Websites where Douglas Laboratories
products are sold or advertised must provide access to the current and approved licensed HCP account
holder, including his/her complete phone number, email and office address contact information.
g. International Restrictions: Products are for distribution in the United States only. Due to international
supplement regulations and policies governing such products, and to protect the integrity and rights of our
international distributors, products cannot be shipped internationally.
h. Compliance with Laws: The HCP customer is solely responsible to comply with all applicable laws and
regulations where it advertises or sells Douglas Laboratories products.
i. Payment and Returns: Customers are to submit either prepaid check or credit card as method of
payment. Account terms are not permitted. Additionally, returns and/or credits will not be granted.
j. Amazon.com: Douglas Laboratories maintains an agreement with one exclusive Amazon.com retailer. Therefore, Douglas Laboratories products may not be advertised or sold on Amazon.com and any of its affiliates by anyone except for this retailer. Customers who violate this exclusive agreement are subject to immediate and permanent suspension of purchasing privileges.
k. Pricing Provisions: Authorized approved HCPs must abide by the Minimum Advertised Price (MAP)
Policy, as outlined in section III of this document when advertising the resale of Douglas Laboratories
III. Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) Policy
a. Liability: The Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) Policy applies to all customers including those that own, operate or manage websites, online clinics and pharmacies. The MAP policy applies to all printed and electronic advertisements of Douglas Laboratories products including but not limited to catalogs, brochures, websites, email solicitations, special offers, newsletters and electronic coupons or coupon codes. HCP customers agree to assume all liability and responsibility for the resale of products through the internet.
b. Advertising: Through the purchase of Douglas Laboratories products, customers agree not to advertise
through any medium of mass communication any product at less than the Suggested Retail Price (SRP) for
each respective product as listed on the Douglas Laboratories professional product list in effect at the time
of the advertising. This policy prohibits the advertising of any volume discount or other promotion that
would cause the per unit sales price to be advertised at less than the SRP. Similarly, any language referring
to or speaking of inferred discounts that a customer may receive through a website is prohibited. This does
not apply to advertising within a practitioner’s office setting. The “practitioner’s office setting” is defined
as the physical location where patients are medically seen and treated by the licensed HCP approved by
IV. Failure to Comply
In order to preserve brand integrity, Douglas Laboratories requires compliance with the terms and
conditions outlined in this policy. If a customer fails to comply with the terms of Section II., a. through k.,
Douglas Laboratories shall notify them via phone, email or standard mail of the violation and immediately
place the customer’s account on hold until the customer has come into compliance. Failure to comply with
the MAP policy in Section II., k., and Section III., may result in temporary revocation of the customer’s
wholesale purchasing privileges, suspension of the account or termination of the account. Douglas
Laboratories reserves the right to revoke the customer’s wholesale price purchasing privileges and/or
112 Technology Drive

terminate the account of any customer in violation of any of the terms or conditions outlined in this policy
with or without prior notice. Violation of any such terms automatically forfeits the account holder’s ability
to purchase products in any capacity.
Pure Encapsulations, Inc.
United States Minimum Advertised Price Policy
Effective November 13, 2017
Pure Encapsulations, Inc. (“Pure Encapsulations”) has determined that advertising its products at a price below levels that Pure Encapsulations deems sufficient to support a high level of service discourages the commitment and investment of our customers in the brand and undermines Pure Encapsulations’ trade reputation, brand, and image within the target consumer population. To this end, Pure Encapsulations has adopted this unilateral Minimum Advertised Price (“MAP”) Policy (the “Policy”), which applies to all authorized sellers of Pure Encapsulations products in the United States (hereinafter “Resellers”).
The MAP will be established solely by Pure Encapsulations and communicated to Resellers of Pure Encapsulations products. The MAP for each product is equal to the retail price listed for each product on www.pureencapsulations.com. If Pure Encapsulations changes the MAP on any Product, it will provide at least 30 days’ notice to Resellers before such change takes effect.
This Policy does not constitute an agreement between any Reseller or other party and Pure Encapsulations. Each Reseller must independently choose whether to comply with the terms of this Policy. Pure Encapsulations neither solicits nor will it accept any assurance of compliance with this Policy from any Reseller or other party. This Policy is not negotiable and will not be altered for any individual Reseller.
It is a violation of this Policy for a Reseller to advertise any Pure Encapsulations Product(s) at a price lower than the published MAP. Although Pure Encapsulations is not directing any Reseller to require that its customers comply with this Policy, a violation of this Policy by any such third party will constitute a violation by the Reseller.
This Policy applies to all advertisements of Pure Encapsulations products in any and all media as well as any advertising within brick and mortar and other selling venues. An “advertisement” includes any and all promotional or pricing information displayed via any type of media including, but not limited to, all website pages and banners, social media, emails, blogs, newspapers, catalogs, magazines, flyers, brochures, television, radio ads, billboards, electronic coupons, coupon codes, and any other marketing or promotional materials. Professionals who operate web-stores exclusively for their direct patients may advertise Pure Encapsulations products at below MAP only if the discounted price is not visible to any customer who is not logged in with a password-protected email. Additionally, passwords cannot be made available online, via a broadcast email, or through any other means by which a password is shared beyond the Professional’s direct patients.
Direct or indirect attempts to circumvent this Policy will be considered a violation of this Policy. Such attempts may include, but are not limited to:
i. Coupons, discounts, rebate offers, or other inducements that advertise a price lower than the MAP;
ii. The advertising of any volume discount or other promotion that would cause the per unit sales price to be advertised at less than the MAP;
iii. Bundling Pure Encapsulations products with other products or services when such bundling has the effect of reducing the advertised price of the Pure Encapsulations product below the MAP;
iv. Statements or other indications on a website or in other promotional materials that indicate or imply that a lower price may be found at the online checkout stage, including but not limited to, “See Price in Cart,” “Add to Cart to See Price” or other similar features; and
v. Any other Reseller-initiated communication or form of advertisement that has the effect of advertising a price below the MAP, such as a price-off coupon, storewide sale, promotional code or other similar items that can be applied to Pure Encapsulations products or from which Pure Encapsulations products are not excluded. However, price-off coupons or promotional codes that are found on the products or their packaging and accessible only after a product has been purchased are not “advertising” under this Policy, and a Reseller’s use of such promotional methods is not a violation of this Policy.
It is not a violation of this Policy to advertise that a customer may “call for price” or “email for price” or use similar language as long as no price is listed. Use of phrases that advertise “the lowest prices,” “will match or beat competitor’s prices,” or similar phrases also do not violate this Policy so long as the Reseller does not include any advertised price below the MAP.
This Policy does not affect the prices that a Reseller may charge for Pure Encapsulations products. Resellers are free to sell Pure Encapsulations products at any price they choose. This Policy applies only to Resellers’ advertised prices, not selling prices.
Pure Encapsulations reserves the right to impose penalties if Pure Encapsulations, in its sole discretion, believes that:
i. A Reseller has violated the provisions of this Policy; or
ii. A Reseller has engaged in any activity that Pure Encapsulations determines, in its sole discretion, is designed or intended to circumvent the intent of this Policy.
Specifically, Pure Encapsulations will take the following actions, which apply to all Resellers, should a Reseller fail to comply with the Policy:
i. For a Reseller’s first violation of the Policy, Pure Encapsulations will issue a warning notifying the Reseller of the noncompliance.
ii. For a Reseller’s second violation of the Policy, Pure Encapsulations will place the account on shipping hold for 30 days.
iii. For a Reseller’s third violation of the Policy, Pure Encapsulations will terminate its business relationship with the Reseller.
No Pure Encapsulations employee or agent is authorized to modify, interpret, or grant exceptions to this Policy with any Reseller. No person has the authorization to modify this Policy or to solicit or obtain agreement of any person to this Policy, and any such modification or agreement is invalid. Any questions about this Policy should be submitted in writing and directed to Pure Encapsulations’ MAP Liaison at MAP@atrium-innovations.com.
The Policy will be enforced by Pure Encapsulations in its sole discretion and without notice. Resellers have no right to enforce the Policy. Violations of this Policy may result in the aforementioned sanctions up to and including termination of our business relationship.
This Policy may be updated, revised, suspended, terminated, reinstituted, or modified at any time by Pure Encapsulations in its sole discretion. Pure Encapsulations shall make any such modifications available to all authorized Resellers.

(“PE”) products (the “Products”) in the United States. The Policy is effective immediately. By purchasing Products from an Authorized PE Distributor for retail sale, you (“Reseller”) agree to adhere to the following terms and conditions.
1. Manner of Sale. Reseller is authorized to offer Products purchased from an Authorized PE Distributor for retail sale in accordance with the terms herein. Sales in violation of these terms are strictly prohibited and may result in PE’s immediate revocation of Reseller’s status as an Authorized Reseller, in addition to other remedies. Products sold to unauthorized persons or through unauthorized channels, including unauthorized Internet sites, shall not be eligible for certain PE promotions, services, and/or benefits, including, unless prohibited by law, coverage under any PE Product guarantees.
1.1 Reseller shall sell Products solely to end users of the Products. Reseller shall not sell to anyone a quantity of the Products greater than that generally purchased by an individual for personal use.
1.2 Reseller shall not sell, ship, invoice, or promote the Products outside the United States without obtaining PE’s prior written consent.
1.3 Reseller shall not sell or transfer any of the Products to any person or entity for re-sale without the prior written consent of PE. This includes sales to B2B accounts, wholesalers, freight forwarders/drop shippers for other resellers, or any other person or entity Reseller knows or has reason to know intends to re-sell the Products.
1.4 Reseller shall not offer Products for sale or fulfill sales of Products through any website without the prior written consent of PE, which is granted solely through execution by PE of the Authorized Online Seller Agreement. Execution by PE of the Authorized Online Seller Agreement constitutes the only authorized means of providing consent to sell Products online. No PE employee or agent may authorize online sales through oral statements, other written agreement, or by any other means. Selling on third-party marketplace sites, including eBay, Walmart Marketplace, Sears Marketplace, and Jet, or through drop-ship accounts (e.g. Rakuten, Newegg, Overstock), classified sites (e.g. Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace), or social media is strictly prohibited. PE maintains an agreement with one exclusive Amazon.com retailer. Therefore, the Products may not be advertised or sold on Amazon.com or any of its affiliates by anyone except this retailer. Any Reseller that violates this exclusive agreement is subject to immediate and permanent suspension of purchasing privileges.
2. Product Inspection. Reseller shall inspect Products upon receipt and during storage for damage, defect, evidence of tampering, or other non-conformance. Reseller must also confirm that product seals have not been broken. If any defect is identified, Reseller must not offer the Product for sale and must report the defect to PE at 800-753-2277. Furthermore, Reseller shall inspect its inventory regularly for expired or soon-to-be expired Products and shall remove those Products from inventory. Reseller shall not sell expired Products.
3. Product Storage and Handling. Reseller shall store the Products in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight, extreme heat, and dampness, and in accordance with any additional storage guidelines specified by PE.
4. Alterations Prohibited. Reseller shall sell Products in their original packaging, with all seals intact. Relabeling, repackaging (including the separation of bundled products or the bundling of products), and other alterations to the Products or their packaging is prohibited. Reseller shall not tamper with, deface, or otherwise alter serial numbers, lot or batch codes, or other identifying information on Products or packaging. Removing, translating, or modifying the contents of any label or literature on or accompanying the Products is also prohibited.
5. Recall and Consumer Safety. To ensure the safety and well-being of the end users of the Products, Reseller shall communicate all safety information to consumers and cooperate with PE with respect to any Product recall.
6. Customer Service. Reseller must be able to accurately describe, demonstrate, and sell each Product kept in inventory and be able to advise patients and/or clients on how to use the Products safely and properly. Reseller must be available to respond to customer questions and concerns both before and after sale of the Products and should endeavor to respond to customer inquiries promptly. Resellers must represent the Products in a professional manner and refrain from any conduct that is or could be detrimental to the reputation of PE.
7. Consumer Confusion. Resellers are prohibited from advertising, marketing, displaying, or demonstrating non-Pure Encapsulations products together with PE Products in a manner that would create the impression that the non-Pure Encapsulations products are made by, endorsed by, or associated with PE.
8. Compliance with Applicable Laws. Resellers shall comply with any and all applicable laws, rules, regulations, and policies related to the advertising, sale, and marketing of the Products. This requirement includes any and all consumer safety- or consumer protection-related laws, including, but not limited to California Proposition 65.
9. Use of Pure Encapsulations Intellectual Property. Reseller is granted a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable license to use the PE brand, name, logo, trademarks, service marks, trade dress, patents, copyrights, and other intellectual property related to the Products (the “PE Trademarks”) solely for purposes of marketing and selling the Products as set forth herein, and this license shall cease immediately upon termination of a Reseller’s status as an Authorized Reseller. PE may review, approve, and/or reject, in its sole discretion, a Reseller’s use of the PE Trademarks at any time. All goodwill arising from Reseller’s use of the PE Trademarks shall inure solely to the benefit of PE.
10. Termination. If a Reseller violates any provision of the Reseller Policy, PE reserves the right to terminate Reseller’s status as an Authorized Reseller in addition to all other available remedies. Upon termination of Reseller’s status, Reseller shall immediately cease selling the Products, representing itself as an Authorized Reseller of PE Products, and all use of anything that may give the impression that Reseller is an Authorized Reseller of PE Products or has any affiliation whatsoever with PE.
11. Availability of Injunctive Relief. If there is a breach or threatened breach of paragraphs 1 through 10 of this Reseller Policy, it is agreed and understood that PE shall have no adequate remedy in money or other damages and accordingly shall be entitled to injunctive relief and other equitable remedies; provided, however, no specification in this Reseller Policy of any particular remedy shall be construed as a waiver or prohibition of any other remedies in the event of a breach or threatened breach of this Reseller Policy. No failure, refusal, neglect, delay, waiver, forbearance, or omission by PE to exercise any right(s) herein or to insist upon full compliance by Reseller with Reseller’s obligations herein shall constitute a waiver of any provision or otherwise limit PE’s right to fully enforce any or all provisions and parts thereof.
12. Modification. PE reserves the right to update, amend, or modify this Reseller Policy at any time.
13. WARRANTY DISCLAIMER. PE DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND ALL OTHER WARRANTIES ARISING BY OPERATION OF LAW, COURSE OF DEALING, CUSTOM OF TRADE OR OTHERWISE. PE SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO RESELLER UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES FOR SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, LOSS OF SALES, OR LOSS OF PROFITS.
14. Miscellaneous. This Reseller Policy and any dispute arising under it shall be governed by, construed, and enforced in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, without regard to its choice of law rules. In the event of a dispute over the terms or performance under the Reseller Policy, Reseller expressly submits to personal jurisdiction and venue in the federal or state courts in Middlesex County, Massachusetts. If any provision of the Reseller Policy is held contrary to law, the remaining provisions shall remain valid.
15. PE has a unilateral Minimum Advertised Price Policy (“MAP Policy”) that applies to all resellers of PE Products located within the United States. This paragraph is intended to inform you of the MAP Policy. It does not constitute consideration for any agreement between you and PE, and does not separately constitute an agreement between you and PE regarding the prices you will charge your customers for the Products. PE does not seek, nor will it accept, from Reseller any assurance of compliance with the MAP Policy.
Protocol For Life Balance - Minimum Advertised Pricing (MAP) Policy
September 1, 2011
AFFECTED PRACTITIONER CUSTOMERS
MINIMUM ADVERTISED PRICE (MAP)
Protocol for Life Balance ("Protocol") has implemented a Minimum Advertised Price Policy ("Policy") which prohibits advertising any Protocol For Life Balance product at less than suggested retail pricing. Protocol has unilaterally adopted this Policy to ensure protection of its brand equity and to preserve its intellectual property in its Protocol For Life Balance name, and to maximize the effectiveness and efficiency of Protocol's distribution channels and its Customers' investment in Protocol For Life Balance products.
Under this Policy, "advertising" includes internet, print, radio, television, direct mail and catalogs. This Policy does not apply to advertising within a practitioner's office and e-mail advertising to a private patient base. "Patient" is defined as an individual who is treated and monitored in the practitioner's office.
All Customers remain free to determine and establish, in their sole and absolute discretion, their own retail or resale price for Protocol For Life Balance products. This policy also does not apply to any promotional values that do not affect the suggested retail price such as "free shipping" or including a free or discounted product bundled with the Protocol For Life Balance product, provided the discounted product is not a Protocol For Life Balance product covered under this policy.
VIOLATIONS OF POLICY
All Customers who violate this Policy will be so notified by Protocol via phone, e-mail or standard mail, and will be given ten (10) days' notice to become more compliant. After the end of the ten (10)-day notice period, if the problem is not rectified, Protocol reserves the right to discontinue fulfilling orders. If a Customer violates the above conditions on more than one occasion, Protocol reserves the right to immediately revoke the Customer's wholesale price privileges without any liability to Protocol. Protocol may, without notice, take such other and additional action as it deems appropriate and necessary against Customers that violate the above conditions without any liability to Protocol. Protocol reserves the right not to sell any products to any Customer that is affiliated with a website or sells to a third-party website that violates this Policy, or in Protocol's sole opinion, disparages Protocol or its Protocol For Life Balance products or diminishes the brand. Each Customer is free to independently decide whether or not to follow this Policy; however, violations of this Policy may result in the above-mentioned actions.
Protocol will not discuss any conditions of acceptance related to this Policy as it is non-negotiable and will not be altered for any Customer. No employee or sales representative of Protocol is authorized to discuss this Policy nor does any employee or sales representative have the authority to modify or alter this Policy. Nothing in this Policy is intended to constitute an Agreement between Protocol and any of its Customers. Protocol may modify this Policy or any of its suggested retail prices, or discontinue this Policy at any time, for any reason, in the sole discretion of Protocol.
