'47 Brand, LLC and Twins Enterprise Inc. (collectively referred to hereinafter as “’47”) offers certain goods bearing ’47 and Fan Favorite Trademarks (as defined below) (hereinafter the “Product” or “Products”) for sale to retailers that have been authorized by ’47 to make purchases of such Product (hereinafter the “Retailer” or “Retailers”). By submitting an order to ’47 for the purchase of Products (the “Order”), Retailer agrees that each such Order will be subject to and in all respects governed by the terms and conditions of sale (“the Terms and Conditions”) in effect at the time the Order is submitted. These Terms and Conditions, along with Retailer’s credit application (if applicable), shall hereby be incorporated into and become part of any Order submitted to ’47 by Retailer, and collectively shall form the agreement between ’47 and Retailer upon which all Orders are fulfilled. In the event that any provisions of an Order conflict with the Terms and Conditions provided herein, these Terms and Conditions shall prevail. ’47 reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to revise, amend, or otherwise update these Terms and Conditions (the “Updated Terms and Conditions”) from time to time and will provide Retailer with access to the Updated Terms and Conditions within five (5) business days of such Updated Terms and Conditions becoming effective. Prior to placing an Order, Retailer shall be responsible to review the then-current version of the Terms and Conditions (available at www.47brand.com under “Retailer Terms and Conditions” or by request from ’47). Retailer’s continued status as a ’47 Retailer is conditioned upon Retailer conducting its business in accordance with the Terms and Conditions and operating principles set forth herein. The Terms and Conditions that are current as of January 1, 2017 (the “Effective Date”) are set forth below.

  1. ORDERS: All Orders submitted by Retailer are subject to acceptance by ’47 and are subject to and governed by these Terms and Conditions. The preparation of a purchase order by a sales representative of ‘47, the submission by Retailer of a purchase order to ‘47, or the acknowledgement by ’47 of receipt of a purchase order shall not constitute ‘47’s acceptance of that Order. ’47 may in its sole discretion accept all or any part of an Order or substitute comparable Product (hereinafter “Substitute Product”) for the items that were ordered, in either case by shipping Product. An Order shall only be deemed accepted, in whole or in part, by ’47 shipping Product to Retailer.  ’47 may at any time refuse to ship Product for any reason, even if ’47 has received payment for the applicable Product. ’47 will in its sole discretion determine which Products are made available to Retailer for Orders and determine how to allocate Product among Retailer and ‘47’s other Retailers. Accordingly, ’47 reserves the right to discontinue categories and lines of Product and to make changes in Products offered to any and/or all Retailers at any time. Unless Retailer complies with Section 5 of these Terms and Conditions regarding returns, Retailer will be deemed to have accepted any Substitute Product shipped by ’47 as part of an Order. ’47 may cancel an Order at any time, for any reason, even if ’47 has acknowledged, confirmed, or received payment for that Order. In the event that ’47 has received payment for an Order that is then cancelled at the discretion of ’47, ’47 will, at its sole election, either refund the payment or credit Retailer’s account for the amount of the cancelled Order. Retailer may not cancel an Order after its acceptance by ‘47. Any Order received by ’47 that conflicts with or that includes provisions (other than item and quantity) in addition to these Terms and Conditions will have no force or effect to the extent it is inconsistent with the Terms and Conditions contained herein or includes any additional provisions. ’47 will be entitled to accept any Order and to rely on any other written or telephonic request or notice given by a person that appears to be, in the reasonable business judgment of ’47, an employee or agent of Retailer. Hot Market, Playoff, Championship or any other order that is dependent upon a team winning a particular game is additionally subject to ‘47’s “Hot Market Waiver Agreement.” This waiver agreement will be provided to each Retailer at the time of order and must be completed before ’47 will accept such orders. The terms of any Hot Market Waiver Agreement completed by Retailer shall be incorporated into, and shall in no way replace, the Terms and Conditions outlined herein.
  1. PRICES: ’47 may correct typographical or other errors in pricing, may reduce or cancel any discounts previously offered to Retailer, and may change its prices at any time. Any such corrections, reductions, cancellations, and changes shall be, in each instance, at the sole and absolute discretion of ’47. Each Order will be invoiced at the Product prices prevailing at the time that Order is fully recorded into ‘47’s central ordering system. Nothing contained herein shall obligate Retailer to resell the Product at any particular price or on any specific terms and conditions, notwithstanding Retailer’s adherence to ‘47’s Minimum Advertised Pricing Policy (the “MAP policy”) and Schedule of Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Prices (the “MSRP Schedule”) as may be published from time to time by ‘47.
  1. PAYMENT: Retailer will pay for all Product by the date specified on ‘47’s invoice for each Order, or if none is specified, within thirty (30) days after the date of that invoice. Any sum not paid when due is subject to a service charge of one and a half percent (1.5%) per month or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is lower. The amount reflected in each ’47 invoice will be deemed to be valid unless Retailer disputes the amount of that invoice in writing within thirty (30) days after Retailer’s receipt of the invoice (the “Notice of Dispute”). Retailer will pay the undisputed portion of each invoice on its respective due date. For any amount that remains in dispute, the parties will act in good faith to resolve such disputed amount within thirty (30) days from the date ’47 receives the Notice of Dispute from Retailer. In the event that the parties cannot resolve the dispute within such thirty (30) day period, ’47 reserves its right to pursue all remedies available at law and equity to recover any outstanding amounts from Retailer. ’47 has the right to apply payments it receives from Retailer to any of Retailer’s outstanding invoices and to disregard Retailer’s instructions to apply payment to any specific invoice. In the event Retailer is indebted to ’47 or to any ’47 affiliate, that debt may be offset against any credits otherwise owing to Retailer.
  1. SHIPPING; RISK OF LOSS; TITLE: ’47 will ship Product FCA, the ’47 Distribution Center or other shipping point designated by ’47 in its sole business discretion. ’47 is not responsible for any loss resulting from any delay in shipping or failure to ship.
  1. RETURNS: Product that was shipped in accordance with the specifications in the Order is not returnable. If Retailer wishes to return Products based on a claim that they are defective or that any Substitute Product provided by ’47 is not comparable to the Product that was ordered, Retailer may submit to ’47 a request for return within thirty (30) days after delivery of those Products to Retailer. ’47 shall, in its sole and absolute discretion, decide which Product, if any, shall be approved for return (the “Approved Return Product”). ’47 will not approve return requests received by ’47 more than thirty (30) days after delivery of those Products to Retailer. ’47 will not issue any refunds or apply any credits for Product that is not Approved Return Product. Any Product returned to ’47 that is not Approved Return Product will be disposed of by ’47 in a manner it so chooses unless Retailer prepays shipping costs to return Product to Retailer. Retailer will ship all returns at its own expense and will retain title and risk of loss until receipt by ’47 at the designated return destination. Restocking fees may apply for any Approved Return Product.
  1. AUTHORIZED RETAILER LOCATIONS: ’47 grants the Retailer the non-exclusive, non-transferable right to sell Products offered to Retailer by ’47 from time to time in accordance with these Terms and Conditions. Retailer will sell Products only at locations and through sales channels that have been approved by ’47 (hereinafter “Authorized Location” or “Authorized Locations”). Approval of all Authorized Locations shall be at the sole and absolute business discretion of ’47. Products may not be sold by Retailer at any other location without the prior written consent of ’47. Retailer covenants and agrees that the following standards will apply to all of Retailer’s Authorized Locations:
  • Retailer may only sell Products under any store name and/or at any physical store location that has been approved by ‘47 as an Authorized Location.  Retailer acknowledges and agrees that ’47 may approve other retailers without regard to Retailer’s location, and nothing in these Terms and Conditions limits ‘47’s right to own and/or operate and/or appoint third parties to own and/or operate company store locations and/or “shop-in-shop” locations.
  • Unless otherwise agreed to in writing by ’47, Retailer has no exclusive territory in respect of Products.
  • All sales of Products must be at retail only. Retailer shall only sell Product to retail consumers physically present at such Authorized Location who are purchasing for their personal consumption and not for resale to an end consumer.

GENERAL RESTRICTIONS: Retailer will not directly or indirectly; (a) sell, consign or otherwise transfer Product (i) outside the United States (and, if Retailer makes sales of Product at a physical store location, other than at the Approved Location or Approved Locations); (ii) sell Product to another retailer, or to an e-retailer, distributor, or broker; (iii) sell product to a consumer where Retailer knows or should know, based on the circumstances of the transaction, that the Product is intended for resale or will likely be resold; (iv) purchase or sell, offer to sell, or distribute (including at no cost), counterfeit ’47 goods; (v) purchase authentic ’47 goods from any third party or sell or offer to sell Product on behalf of or for the account of, any other third party; (vi) if ’47 sets a launch date for a particular ’47 Product, sell that product prior to the date and time stated by ‘47; (vii) collect or use any sensitive personal data about consumers other than in compliance with industry best practices for security standards, and applicable law; (viii) mislead consumers with respect to prices, services, or any other aspect, characteristic, or feature of ’47 or Products; (ix) represent that the Authorized Location(s) or Authorized Website(s) are owned, operated, or controlled by ’47; or (x) use “’47” or any word related to “’47” by sight, sound or meaning in Retailer’s corporate, business or trade name.
  1. NO DIVERSION. Retailer will not sell Products to any other entity or individual that Retailer knows or should have reason to believe is purchasing the Products other than for personal use. Retailer understands and agrees the Products may be coded, at times invisibly and without notice to Retailer, to facilitate tracing of Product. Retailer agrees that it will educate its employees regarding this prohibition and take reasonable steps to prevent diversion of Products in violation of these Terms and Conditions. Any breach of this provision or diversion of Product sold to Retailer, irrespective of actual knowledge of Retailer with respect to such diversion, will be cause for immediate termination of Retailer’s appointment hereunder and the cancellation, without penalty, of any open Orders placed by Retailer with ‘47. Recognizing that the diversion of Product is likely to cause confusion in the mind of consumers, the loss of business to ‘47, and significant reputational harm to ‘47, any such diversion by Retailer shall subject Retailer to damages of, at a minimum, three (3) times the price paid by Retailer for diverted Product. The parties agree that the foregoing minimum amount represents a reasonable estimate of the least amount of harm expected to result from such a diversion and not a penalty. In addition, ‘47 will be entitled to recover from Retailer any purchase price paid and other costs and expenses incurred by ‘47 to repurchase Product diverted by Retailer.

SEVERABILITY AND WAIVER: In the event any provision of these Terms and Conditions should be or becomes in whole or in part illegal, invalid, or unenforceable for any reason whatsoever or should violate any applicable law, such provision shall be severable from these Terms and Conditions and shall be deemed deleted from these Terms and Conditions; but the remainder of these Terms and Conditions shall be valid and binding as if such provision were not included herein. 47’s delay or failure to enforce or insist on strict compliance with any of the provisions of these Terms and Conditions will not constitute a waiver or otherwise modify the these Terms and Conditions, and 47’s waiver of any right related to these Terms and Conditions on one occasion will not waive any other right, constitute a continuing waiver or waive that right on any other occasion.
  1. ATTORNEY’S FEES/GOVERNING LAW/FORUM SELECTION: Retailer will pay all costs, collection agency fees, expenses, and reasonable attorney fees (whether incurred prior to, at trial or on appeal) incurred by ’47 in connection with Retailer’s breach of these Terms and Conditions. These Terms and Conditions, and all disputes arising out of the Terms and Conditions or out of the relationship between ’47 and Retailer, will be governed by the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. THE UNITED NATIONS CONVENTION ON CONTRACTS FOR THE INTERNATIONAL SALE OF GOODS WILL NOT APPLY. Retailer irrevocably consents to the jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in connection with any action arising out of or in connection with these Terms and Conditions and/or the relationship between the Parties and waives any objection that such venue is an inconvenient forum. Retailer will not initiate an action against ’47 in any other jurisdiction.
  1. FORCE MAJEURE: If it becomes impossible for either Retailer or ’47 to perform its obligations under the Agreement as a result of fire, flood, earthquake, or other natural disaster, or other event beyond that party’s reasonable control, that party’s performance may be delayed for the duration of the force majeure event, except that nothing in this Section 21 will excuse Retailer from its payment obligations under these Terms and Conditions.
  1. RESTRICTION ON ASSIGNMENT: Retailer will not assign any right conferred herein by ’47 without the prior written consent of an authorized ’47 representative, which consent shall be in the sole and absolute discretion of ’47. A change of control of Retailer by stock sale or gift, merger, operation of law, by contract or otherwise, will be deemed an assignment for purposes of this Section. Any attempted assignment or delegation by Retailer will be void. ’47 may grant, withhold or condition its consent to any assignment in ‘47’s sole discretion. If ’47 authorizes an assignment or delegation, that authorization will not release Retailer from any of its obligations under these Terms and Conditions unless (a) the authorization expressly releases Retailer; (b) the assignee or delegate agrees in writing to be bound by the Terms and Conditions contained herein; and (c) any agreement between Retailer and the assignee or delegate states that ’47 has the right to enforce Retailer’s rights against the assignee or delegate.
  1. SET-OFF: In the event Retailer is indebted to ’47 or to any ’47 affiliate, that debt may be offset against credits otherwise owing to Retailer to reduce or eliminate the credit.
  1. RELATIONSHIP: The relationship of ’47 and Retailer established by these Terms and Conditions is that of vendor-purchaser and nothing contained herein shall be construed to create a partnership, joint venture or any other relationship. Retailer may not represent that ’47 and Retailer are partners, joint venturers, principal and agent, or employer and employee, or hold out to any employee or prospective employee of Retailer that such person is or will be employed by ’47 or that his or her employment will be other than as an employee of Retailer. Retailer has no authority to and must not assume or create, in writing or otherwise, any obligation of any kind, express or implied, in the name or on behalf of ’47. Retailer shall not use any ‘47 trademarks in signing any contract, check, purchase agreement, negotiable instrument or other legal obligation, application for any license or permit, or in any manner that may result in liability of ‘47 for any debt or obligation of Retailer. Nothing in these Terms and Conditions are intended to establish a franchisor/franchise relationship under applicable law.
