Direct Value Add Distributor ("DVAD") Program Terms and Conditions
DISTRIBUTOR ("DVAD") PROGRAM
The Program is focused on establishing new business practices between Cisco and its distribution base for high-value project based business, as defined herein. The parties agree that Distributor may participate in the Program in the Territory, subject to the terms and conditions of these Terms and Conditions. Distributor agrees to comply at all times with the then-current DVAD Program (also referred to as the "CBN" or Channels Booking Neutrality program) guidelines and policies published by Cisco from time to time at https://www.ciscodistributioncentral.com/strategy-and-planning/channel-book-neutrality ("Guidelines"). The parties agree these Guidelines apply specifically to this program and do not alter any of the terms and conditions contained in the Agreement. In case of any conflict between the Agreement and the Guidelines, the Agreement shall control. Cisco will make commercially reasonable efforts to notify Distributor of any change in the Guidelines.
Order Qualification Requirements: [*****]
[*****] All sales made by Cisco under the Program are final. In addition, Distributor shall not fulfill Program Orders from Distributor's inventory. [*****] Cisco reserves the right to request, and Distributor agrees to promptly furnish, any supporting documentation related to Orders placed under the Program, including, without limitation, the purchase orders or purchase contracts between the Distributor and Reseller for the relevant Product contained in an Order. If Cisco reasonably believes that Distributor has used the Program to procure inventory, or has otherwise abused the Program, Cisco may immediately terminate Distributor’s participation in the Program.
For each Order submitted under the Program, Distributor shall, upon request from Cisco, submit to Cisco copies of the relevant shipping documents showing Distributor's shipment of the Product to either the applicable reseller or End User. Cisco acknowledges that, where Distributor is the importer of record, Distributor may need to perform staging activities as it relates to Product purchased under the Program.
Participation in the Program does not entitle Distributor to any of the benefits provided under Cisco's Channel Programs to Cisco Direct Value Add Resellers ("DVARs") or any other Cisco-authorized resellers.
Term: These Terms and Conditions are coterminous with the Agreement. Cisco is under no obligation to develop any kind of program, or modify any ordering processes, as a result of the Program. Participation in the Program is at Distributor's expense. Cisco will not be responsible for any costs incurred by Distributor as a result of the Program. Distributor further acknowledges and agrees that Cisco may modify or terminate the DVAD Program at any time, with no less than [*****] days advance notice to Distributor.
