Publicly Advertised Internet Sales
Due to the inability to resell products, we do not offer returns or refunds. The temperature sensitivity of our vitamin and supplements prevents us from safely redistributing our products once they leave our facility.
Lifestyle by Dr Deepti has always acknowledged the merits of online commerce for our health-care practitioner-customers and their patients.
Lifestyle by Dr Deepti has established a Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) policy to protect its brand, reputation and image.
Furthermore, we have always strived to ensure appropriate communication, medical education, and patient care standards for online resellers.
Additionally, our long-held concern has not been resolved regarding the quality of care that patients receive who purchase our products through multiple proprietary e-storefronts and third-party ecommerce platforms, such as Amazon.com, Jet.com, ebay.com, etc.
After careful evaluation and due consideration, Lifestyle by Dr Deepti has come to the conclusion that a different model is needed for the sale of our nutritional supplement products on the Internet; in particular, a model that ensures pricing parity and appropriate patient support.
Therefore, as of May 1, 2016, Lifestyle by Dr Deepti has extended exclusive purchasing privileges to a single authorized Practitioner-Based Amazon account and a single authorized proprietary e-storefront account. Thus, all other publicly advertised Internet sales are prohibited.
Lifestyle by Dr Deepti believes this Internet sales policy:
Ensures that patient inquiries are addressed promptly and accurately.
Ensures accurate product tracking in the event of a product recall.
Ensures proper tracking and resolution of adverse events.
Ensures compliance with California’s Proposition 65.
Improves patient communications and care.
