The following Terms of Service Agreement ("Agreement") governs your access to and use of our Website and the Services made available to you by Company ("Service").
Company provides an online service to register ownership of your pet in the event your pet is stolen, missing or lost. Upon registration, Company will send you an identification tag which has a unique serial number identifying the pet to your registration information. We ask that you pay $4.95 for shipping and handling for the tag. Thereafter, your information is placed in an online database so that when anyone contacts us regarding the location of your pet, we will immediately notify you of the location of your pet and provide you with contact information from the person or shelter that has your pet so that you may contact them directly. We do not provide your registration information to the person or institution which has your pet. You may cancel our Service by going to your My Account page and clicking the Delete Account link.
You are required to provide us with your current contact information through our online registration. In addition, it is your obligation to keep this contact information current.
