Nivel Parts and Manufacturing Co., LLC is dedicated to producing the highest quality golf car accessories for use by commercial and private consumers. Nivel has a positive and beneficial relationship with its Dealers and actively
supports their efforts to advertise and promote Nivel products.
To protect the investment of our valued Dealers, Nivel has established an Internet Minimum Advertised Price Policy ("IMAP Policy"). This IMAP Policy is designed to:
Nivel is confident that this program will strengthen its competitiveness and benefit all of its Dealers.
This IMAP Policy covers the online advertising practices of all Nivel retailers and distributors (collectively "Dealers") located in the United States.
The Policy applies to select SKUs for these Nivel brands:
This Policy is effective August 1, 2017, and will supersede the MSRP Policy for individual Nivel brands.
Effective September 15, 2020, the policy will also apply to select SKUs for the GTW MACH3 branded products, with a fifteen (15) day grace period for dealer implementation.
This policy is not intended to control, influence, determine, restrict or limit in any way the price at which any Nivel dealer may sell Nivel products. This policy is strictly limited to restrictions on advertising. Each dealer
remains entirely free to determine its own resale price for all Nivel products.
For the purpose of this Policy, "advertising" includes, but is not limited to, any and all advertisements, announcements and communications, information and publications generated, developed, produced or distributed by or on
behalf of a dealer on internet websites (including without limitation, any website owned or operated by or on behalf of a dealer, third party websites, websites of any affiliates of a dealer, banner advertisements and pages
that follow banner advertising upon a "click-through").
Any product advertised for sale on any website or commercial marketplace must be directly controlled by the Nivel dealer. Once the pricing is associated with an actual purchase (an internet order), the price becomes the selling
price and is not bound by this IMAP Policy.
A statement that requires the customer to initiate an inquiry about a price, such as "we will match any price" or "email for price" and "call for price" is acceptable. However, such website features as "click for price", automated
"bounce-back" pricing emails, pre-formatted e-mail responses, forms, automatic price displays for any items prior to being placed in a customer’s shopping cart, and other similar features are considered to be communications
initiated by the dealer rather than by the customer, and this constitutes "advertising" under the IMAP Policy.
Furthermore, extra fees and/or costs, such as shipping costs or transactional fees, will not be considered when determining whether a dealer is in compliance with this Policy. For example, if a product's IMAP is $99.99, a company
would be in violation of this Policy if they were to advertise the product for $89.99 with an additional $10 for shipping cost or another type of fee. However, a company is still permitted to offer "free shipping" or include
extra fees or costs in addition to the product's IMAP.
This IMAP Policy also applies to any activity which Nivel determines, in its sole discretion, is designed or intended to circumvent the intent of this IMAP policy, such as solicitations for "group purchases" or "bundling."
"Bundling" or the inclusion in advertising of free or discounted products (whether made by Nivel or another manufacturer) with a product covered by the IMAP Policy would be contrary to the Policy if it has the effect of
discounting the advertised price of the covered product below the IMAP.
This Policy does not determine what price a product is actually sold for. Moreover, this IMAP Policy is not applicable to any advertising that is displayed only in-store and not distributed to any customers. Nivel products
not specifically identified in this Policy are not subjected to IMAP.
For a list of products that fall under this applicable IMAP Policy, please see Nivel's corresponding Price File on nivelparts.com/Dealer Resource Center. Product exclusions for this IMAP Policy include, but are not limited
to, service parts, commodities, tires and wheels
From time to time, "amnesty" periods may be defined by Nivel, allowing Dealers to advertise IMAP products below IMAP pricing. These intervals will be communicated via email, written correspondence, and/or internet posting.
Nivel has established policies that allow Dealers to earn the profits necessary to maintain the high level of customer satisfaction people have come to expect from Nivel. Dealers are permitted to offer "value-added" incentives
in advertisements for Nivel products that increase the value and experience to the customer, as long as no mention of the monetary value is indicated for these value-added offers. Value-added offers that qualify are as
Nivel will monitor and randomly sample Dealer advertisements in Dealer market areas. Nivel sales and support representatives are not authorized or permitted to discuss or answer questions about the enforcement and/or non-compliance
of any other Dealer. Non-compliance of the guidelines set forth in this Policy will result in penalties of increasing severity.
The following penalties outlined are actions that will take place within a twelve-month period for violating Nivel’s IMAP Policy:
Nivel will communicate with its Dealers via email, written correspondence, and/or internet posting concerning any change to this policy. Nivel reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify, amend, suspend or cancel
this Policy in whole or in part or designate promotional periods during which the terms of the Policy change or designate periods of time during which the Policy is not acceptable. Amendments to this Policy will not apply
to any Dealer advertising that has already been prepared and is scheduled for delivery within thirty (30) days after the date that Nivel gives the Dealer notice of the amendment. Nivel also reserves the right to revise
the applicable IMAP under this Policy, at its discretion, at any time without advance notice.
Policy modification shall be available at www.nivelparts.com/pages/imap-policy. Any inquiries or comments regarding this Policy should be emailed to IMAPviolations@nivelparts.com.

Can hang-tags on products in my showroom show a price lower than the MSRP? This IMAP Policy is not applicable to any in-store advertising that is displayed only in the store and not distributed to any customers.
Will the IMAP Policy ever change? Nivel reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify, amend, suspend or cancel this Policy in whole or in part or designate promotional periods during which the terms
of the Policy change or designate periods of time during which the Policy is not acceptable.
