USA will be credited (via company name or logo) in an adjacent area to all your utilized Images, whether they are displayed in print, on the Internet, or any other public medium.
4. Unacceptable Use of the Images.The Images must not be used in an unlawful manner, including use, which defames another person or public entity, or in any obscene manner that tarnishes the reputation and integrity of Pleaser USA, its various trademarks or its products. As such, the Images should not be suggestively affiliated with adult novelty items or sexual items. If deemed necessary, Pleaser USA may contact you to inquire specifics about the use of requested Images, and ask that you provide a draft of the Images in place (layout).

The Images should never be distorted, blurred, altered or modified, whether intentionally or otherwise, or displayed in poor quality or resolution.
6. Maintaining Competitive Retail Prices.To preserve our reputation as the premier brand for sexy and alternative shoes and to support our reseller's efforts in delivering an extraordinary customer experience, Pleaser USA has unilaterally adopted a MINIMUM ADVERTISED PRICE POLICY ("MAP Policy"). It is a violation of this MAP Policy if a reseller who sells our products within the United States intentionally advertises any MAP Product below its MAP Price (see Pleaser USA MAP Policy for details). Pleaser USA reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to withdraw from any reseller who violates this MAP Policy the release/license permission of the Images. It is recommended that products sold in the United States that are not covered under our MAP policy (e.g. Funtasma products) maintain a Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). For customers who sell our products outside of the United States, it is strongly suggested to follow our international MSRP for all of our products. For Internet sales, the retail price should not be falsely reduced and subsidized through shipping and handling charges and/or any special promotional offers.
