QUALITY OF MANAGED SERVICES
Overproof TEAM aims to perform such Managed Services in a diligent and workmanlike manner and, when applicable, in compliance with our Code of Conduct, which can be found on www.overproofteam.com/code. Overproof’s Code of Conduct is intended as a guideline and does not serve as a commitment or guarantee that Overproof shall execute its Managed Services in full compliance with its own Code of Conduct. Overproof holds the right to update or change its Code of Conduct from time to time.
GENERAL TERMS OF THE MANAGED SERVICES
Unless otherwise specified in each order form connected to the Managed Services (the “OPT Order Form”), the following terms and conditions apply:
Some goals defined in an OPT Program may include monthly phasing of the goals. This monthly phasing is intended for tracking, planning, and visibility purposes only. Though we task our team to plan their work in accordance with the monthly planning, the aggregate of any monthly phased goals is the final goal for each OPT Program.
Unless a goal in the Order Form is assigned specifically to a Product or selection of Products, the goals set forth in an Order Form may be accomplished with one Product or any combination of the Products included in the program specified in the Order Form.
Some Order Forms may include sales estimates. Our sales estimates are based on our in-field experience with executing market activations and benchmarked by Overproof’s data on the current consumer, menu, and sales trends for specific product categories in each of the targeted markets. Our sales estimates typically vary based on the composition and the duration of the agreed Managed Services for each market and the maturity of a market.
We also factor in specific customer requirements, as target accounts or signature serves. In compliance with federal, state, and local laws, we cannot guarantee the desired sales effect as a result of any of our Managed Services. Therefore, we cannot commit to a sales volume; however, our data-backed projections are typically more accurate than most other agencies. Please be aware that any changes to the program during the execution of a program will inevitably affect our initial sales estimate.
