Clean | Redline

These documents present a new structure for Price List and Product Terms for MAR and TPR, allowing for consistent Additional Terms and a single document to manage them.

This new structure presents a stand-alone Price List for MARs and a Product Terms Document (PTD) shared by both MAR and TPR.

MAR Price List: There are no content changes, just formatting. The effective date of this Price List shows September 1, 2020, to align with the last content change.

MAR and TPR PTD: This PTD has been update in format and wording to enable both MAR and TPR to use the same document and terms.

The effective date of this document is November 1, 2020. MARs should present this new document to TPRs as it allows them to order and Distribute the new Office Home & Student 2019 (Citizenship) Product.

The content has not substantially changed for MARs. Additional Terms wording has been updated as follows:

  • Preamble added to Additional Terms:

The following ATs are for both MARs (MAR Distributors) and TPRs, each as the “Company”.

  • Revised wording of AT1834 and AT1835 
  1. Distributionremoved differentiation for MAR Distribution to TPR, generalizing reference to Distribution of Product on a Customer System.
  2. Validation—adjusted for clarity. In a TAP the End User is not validated, the program is validated.
  3. Maximum Quantitieschanged wording to differentiate between MAR Distributor and TPR, removed generic “Company” since that term now applies to either.
