									                    MDRHA Coupon Clearing Policy

POLICY DATE: June 1, 2004


The company that processes coupons for MDRHA, the Minnesota Grocer’s
Association, also processes for a variety of retailers. These terms and conditions must
exist to ensure all parties understand the expectations of what the program provides.
All participating retailers are expected to understand and follow this policy as a
condition for participation in the program. Submission of coupons by the retailer
