NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing, which is incorporated by reference, and the mutual promises set forth in this Agreement, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties mutually agree as follows:
SECTION 1. RESELLER
1.1 Nonexclusive Reseller.

Similarly, Reseller has the right to sell other manufacturers’ products at its Fixed Retail Outlet(s). If Reseller should sell Product to parties not contemplated by this Section 1.1, Reseller is obligated to recover any such Product from any such unauthorized party and return the Product to Supplier or a Fixed Retail Outlet at Reseller’s expense.
- This Agreement begins on the Effective Date and continues until either party notifies the other of its intent to terminate it (the “Term”). Either party may terminate this Agreement at any time for any reason, or for no reason, by giving written notice to the other party of its intent to terminate. Termination shall be immediate upon such notice. Supplier shall have no liability to Reseller by reason of the expiration or termination of this Agreement for compensation, reimbursement, or damages of any kind, including without limitation any loss of prospective profits on anticipated sales, loss of goodwill, or investments made in reliance on this Agreement. Reseller acknowledges that it has received no assurances from Supplier that the Reseller business relationship with Supplier will continue beyond the Term established in this Agreement, nor that Reseller will obtain any anticipated amount of profits in connection with this Agreement, nor that Reseller will recoup its investment in the promotion of the Products. In the event of the termination of this Agreement, all provisions of this Agreement which by their nature or express terms ought to survive, shall so survive. Upon termination, any order which has not been shipped will be cancelled and all outstanding invoices will become payable immediately.
