V. PROGRAM STRUCTURE
For each Program Period:
A. Once a Customer has enrolled in Dechra Rewards through Vetcove’s website and made one qualifying purchase of an activation brand they will become eligible for a 1% rebate on all qualified purchases of Anti-infectives, Dermatology, NSAIDs, Supplements, Surgical Suite, and Other Products (each, a “Growth Category” and collectively “Growth Categories”, excluding endocrine products and Osphos®) and will be eligible to qualify for all further rebates based on qualified purchases. This 1% reward is identified as Tier 1 in each of the Growth Category rebate tier structures.
B. A Customer will become eligible for an additional rebate within each Growth Category after they have made an activation purchase outlined in Section V A and made qualifying purchases to reach their initial spend goal in that Growth Category. Initial spend goals will vary by Customer based on past purchase volume. Customers can view their applicable spend goal within their loyalty tracker on the Vetcove website. These additional rebates are identified as Tier 2 in each of the Growth Categories.
C. After earning all Tier 2 rebates in a respective product category as described in Section V B, a Customer will have additional spend goals for that Growth Category to earn up to 15% back. The rewards tier immediately following Tier 2 is Tier 3 for that given category.
D. A Customer is eligible for bonus rewards on their endocrine product and Osphos® purchases based on the number of categories in which they reach Tier 3, as defined above.
E. In addition to the foregoing, Dechra may from time to time make available a “Maintenance Group” within a particular Growth Category to recognize longstanding loyalty to Dechra products. Consistent with Section V A above, upon enrollment in the Program and after making a qualifying purchase of an activation brand, Maintenance Group Customers will become eligible for a 1% rebate on all qualified purchases within the applicable Growth Category. Maintenance Group Customers will then become eligible for additional rebates within the Growth Category by meeting additional spend goals, up to a maximum rebate of 15%.
F. A Customer’s spend goals and applicable tier placement shall be determined by Dechra and Vetcove in the companies’ sole discretion and based upon a number of factors including, but not limited to, the Customer’s past purchase volume and purchase data.
