Last Updated: June 1, 2023.
IMPORTANT: By purchasing Virox Technologies Inc. (“Virox”) Rescue™ branded disinfectant solutions for resale, you agree to adhere to this reseller policy (this “Reseller Policy”).
In order to ensure Virox’s resellers (each a “Reseller) are able to sustain healthy margins on Virox’s Rescue™ branded products (“Products”) and ensure that Virox’s end-users are being provided a quality sales experience, expertise, and customer support, Virox has announced this Reseller Policy. Virox believes that its end-user customers are best served by having Resellers who market the Products as premium brand products and who provide an outstanding level of service and support to their end-user customers.
Virox has also decided that to maintain and protect the viability of Virox’s reseller network for the Products, to protect the value associated with Virox in connection with its products, and to ensure high-quality support by Resellers to end-users of those Products, Resellers must comply with the following terms and conditions:
DO NOT SELL VIROX PRODUCTS WITHOUT PERMISSION.
Reseller is prohibited from selling the Products unless it applies for and is approved in writing by Virox. If Reseller has information or reasonably suspects that any person is purchasing and reselling or distributing the Products in a manner not authorized by Virox or in violation of this Reseller Policy, Reseller must promptly notify Virox. Reseller must provide Virox with any supplemental information, documents and reports that Virox may request in order to validate Reseller’s compliance with this Reseller Policy and to support Virox’s warranty support and customer support obligations and initiatives. If Virox determines in its sole discretion that there has been a violation of this Reseller Policy and so notifies the Reseller, the Reseller must cease any reselling of Products within two business days of the date Reseller receives notice from Virox by removing all offers for the Products from all Reseller websites and online marketplaces where the Reseller has positioned the Products for sale. If applicable, at its own cost, the Reseller must also retrieve inventory of the Products placed on consignment with any online marketplace and available for reselling.
