Last Modified: April 18, 2012

Welcome to The Dog Cancer Support Group Website (the “Website”).

This document (the “User Agreement”) is a legal contract that describes the conditions under which you and other users (“you”) are permitted to use the Website.

By using this Website, you agree to be bound by this contract. If you do not accept this User Agreement, do not use the Website.

Changes to the User Agreement

We may change this User Agreement at any time. Therefore, we encourage you to review it periodically before using the Website. To assist you in doing this, we will make the most recent version of the User Agreement available on the Website, and we will indicate at the top of the User Agreement the most recent date when it was modified.

By continuing to use the Website after we modify the User Agreement, you accept the new version of the User Agreement. Therefore, it is important that you read this page regularly to ensure you are familiar with the most updated User Agreement. If you do not agree to the changes, you should not continue to use the Website and should instead contact us.

Scope of License

In exchange for your acceptance of this User Agreement, you are authorized to use the Website. However, you cannot use the Website to distribute or redistribute any portion of the Website.

The Website contains material that is protected by copyright, trademark, or other intellectual property rights, and the Website itself is protected as a collective work under the copyright laws of the United States and other countries. You may not download, modify, publish, transmit, create derivative works from, or in any way exploit, any component of the Website itself.

You may not link to any pages that are intended to be private pages viewable only by clients who have registered as members (“Website Members”) of the Website (the “Private Pages”). You may, however, link to pages intended to be viewed by members of the general public who have not yet become Website Members, but only to the extent that such links do not cast us in a false or misleading light. You may not frame any content. You may not use metatags or any other “hidden text” that incorporates Dog Cancer Support Group Trademarks or names without our express written consent.

Billing

Although some content on this website is free to use by you and by all members of the community – certain Private Pages are made available only to individuals who have properly become Website Members. Where appropriate, you may agree for us to charge you for the price of becoming a Website Member (or set up a subscription or other arrangement to be charged in the future) in exchange for your right to access the Private Pages. By doing so, you expressly agree that we are authorized to charge you according to the arrangement you have selected, plus any other charges you may incur in connection with the applicable payment method you provided during registration (or to a different Payment Method if you change your account information).

As used in these Terms of Use, “billing” shall indicate either a charge or debit, as applicable, against your Payment Method, including a checking account, where applicable. To manage your account please contact us using the contact link below, email us, or call us at (888) 306-0360 for assistance.

You acknowledge that the amount billed each month may vary from month to month for reasons that include differing amounts due to promotional offers, differing amounts due to changes in your membership plan or changes in the amount of applicable sales tax and you authorize us to charge your payment method, where applicable, for such varying amounts. At any time, and for any reason, we may provide a refund, discount, bonus material or other consideration to some or all of our members (“credits”). The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at our sole and absolute discretion, and the provision of credits in one instance does not entitle you to credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate us to provide credits in the future, under any circumstance.

Changes in Membership Benefits

All Website members acknowledge and accept that the benefits provided to members at each membership level may change and vary from time to time in the sole discretion of website owner, and in the event that any member dislikes such changes, that members’ sole recourse shall be to resign from membership and discontinue their membership relationship going forward.

Protection of Website Content

The owners of the Website (the “Website Owners”) may are the sole and exclusive owners of all materials and information on the website, and may, in their sole discretion and without prior notice to you, terminate your access to the Website for any reason, including without limitation:

You understand that you use this Website and the information, forums, and tools at your own risk and we do not guarantee that the information provided on the Website will be accurate or updated.

You agree not to hold us liable for damages you claim are caused by third parties who contact you using the Website or become aware of your identity through the use of the Website, and you understand that, while such behavior is a violation of this User Agreement, we need not attempt to control or identify individuals who falsify their identities or provide false information to others through the use of the Website. You agree that we are not liable for the infringing, defamatory, offensive, or illegal contact of third parties, including other users.

IN NO EVENT WILL WE, OR ANY OF OUR RESPECTIVE INVESTORS, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS AND SUPPLIERS (COLLECTIVELY, THE “INDEMNIFIED PARTIES”), BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR OTHER DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOSS OF PROFITS, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY RELATED TO THE USE OF THE WEBSITE (INCLUDING ANY INFORMATION, TOOLS, PRODUCTS OR SERVICES ADVERTISED IN, OBTAINED ON OR PROVIDED THROUGH THE WEBSITE OR CONTENT CREATED ON OR THROUGH THE WEBSITE).”

THE WEBSITE IS PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” BASIS WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, WARRANTIES OF TITLE OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

THIS DISCLAIMER OF LIABILITY APPLIES TO ANY DAMAGES OR INJURY CAUSED BY ANY FAILURE OF PERFORMANCE, ERROR, OMISSION, INTERRUPTION, DELETION, DEFECT, DELAY IN OPERATION OR TRANSMISSION, COMPUTER VIRUS, COMMUNICATION LINE FAILURE, THEFT OR DESTRUCTION OR UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO, ALTERATION OF, OR USE OF THE OTHER CAUSE OF ACTION, EVEN IF THE CLAIM ALLEGES THAT THE INDEMNIFIED PARTIES’ CONDUCT WAS WILLFUL

Governing Law; Integration; No Waiver; Severability; Termination

You agree that any dispute between you and us will be governed by the laws of the United States of America and the State of California, without regard to choice of law rules, and that any legal action brought by one party against the other will be brought exclusively in the appropriate court within the State of California. If you are located outside of the United States of America, you agree that, by entering into this agreement, you voluntarily subject yourself to the jurisdiction of the courts of the United States of America and the State of California, and you agree that you may be sued in those courts and subject to the judgments and orders of those courts.

You agree that, notwithstanding any provision of law to the contrary, if you are located outside of the United States, we may satisfy our obligation to serve you with legal process by sending an electronic mail message to the email address that you provided when you registered for the Services or by sending a paper communication to you at the postal address that you provided when you registered for the Services. You further agree that service will be deemed accomplished when we send the electronic mail message or paper communication, as appropriate, and that service may be proven through evidence that we sent the communication, regardless of whether we obtain evidence that you received the communication or that the communication was not delivered.

This User Agreement, along with the separate Dog Cancer Support Group Privacy Policy, constitutes the entire agreements between you and us. They govern your use of the Website (but excluding services, if any, that we may provide to you under a separate written agreement), and completely replace any prior agreements between you and us in relation to the Website.

Even if we act in a way that you believe to be inconsistent with this User Agreement, those actions will not be deemed a waiver or constructive amendment of this User Agreement. Similarly, our failure to object to your breach of your obligations under this User Agreement does not constitute a waiver of any of our rights.

If any provision of this User Agreement is ruled unlawful, void, or unenforceable, that provision will be severed from this User Agreement, and the other provisions will remain effective and enforceable. In addition, the severed provision will be deemed replaced with a comparable provision that most closely reflects the intent of the parties.

We reserve the right to terminate this Website and this Terms of Use Agreement at any time without notice for any reason, including, in the case of this Terms of Use Agreement, for your violation of any of its provisions. The Disclaimer and Limitation of Liability and Governing Law sections of this User Agreement shall survive any such termination.

Limitation of Scope

You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and us as a result of this User Agreement or your access to and use of the Website.

No provision of this User Agreement or the Privacy Policy may be interpreted to limit our right to comply with governmental, court, and law enforcement requests or requirements relating to your use of the Website or information provided to or gathered by us with respect to such use.
