PARROT AUTHORIZED RESELLER PROGRAM POLICY
To qualify and remain a non-exclusive Parrot, Inc. (“Parrot”) Authorized Reseller, your business must adhere to the following Parrot Authorized Reseller Policy at all times. All Authorized Resellers are independent contractors, not employees, of Parrot. Authorized Resellers shall be listed on Parrot’s webpage.
1. Maintain Current Business Information & Disclose All Locations That Carry Parrot Products during the Term
Maintain accurate and up-to-date company information and disclose all retail locations that carry Parrot products throughout the term of your reseller relationship with Parrot. This information will be initially disclosed on an Authorized Reseller Application [include link]. If the application is approved by Parrot, then the applicant will be appointed as an Authorized Reseller in accordance with the terms of this policy for one (1) year, which one (1) year term shall successively renew thereafter until such time as either Parrot or the Authorized Reseller provides written notice of its intent to terminate, for any reason, the appointment as an Authorized Reseller on at least thirty (30) days’ notice. Parrot reserves the right to immediately terminate the appointment upon Authorized Reseller’s noncompliance with this policy or Parrot’s MAP Policy if the default under either policy is not cured within ten (10) days of Authorized Reseller’s receipt of written notice of the default.
