    8. Access and Retention.

      Access and Retention. In order to access and retain the Subscriber Agreement, you must have access to the World Wide Web, either directly or through devices that access Web-based content, and pay any service fees associated with such access. In addition, you must use all equipment necessary to make such connection to the World Wide Web, including a computer and modem or other access device.

    Please print a copy of the Subscriber Agreement for your records. To retain an electronic copy of the Subscriber Agreement, you may save it into any word processing program. We will notify you of any changes in the hardware or software requirements needed to access or retain the Subscriber Agreement that create a material risk that you will not be able to continue to access or retain it.

  2. Obligations

    You are required to comply with all applicable laws in connection with your access to and use of the Site and Services, and such further limitations as may be set forth in any written or on-screen notice from Intervet. As a condition of your access to and use of the Site and Services, you warrant that you will not use the Site or Services for any purpose that is unlawful or prohibited by the Subscriber Agreement. Use of the Site is for your personal and non-commercial use, and Intervet does not grant any express or implied rights to use the Site for any other purpose.

  3. Data Privacy

    You authorize Intervet to collect, use and share your personal information in accordance with the HomeAgain Privacy Policy

  4. Billing Terms

    When you enroll in the Service, you authorize Intervet to charge your credit card for the activation fee and annual subscription fee stated on the enrollment and authorization form for the Services, as well as for any and all other fees you may incur in connection with your utilization of the Services. You further authorize Intervet to charge your credit card automatically on a recurring basis each year for the then-current annual subscription fee. Intervet will advise you by electronic mail or in writing at least ten (10) days in advance of the annual renewal date of any change in the subscription fee. You understand that, once charged, subscription fees for the Services are non-refundable. You agree and represent that all information you provide for the purpose of enrolling in the Services is accurate, complete and current, and you agree to notify Intervet of any changes to your credit card information, including changes in billing address and expiration dates. If Intervet does not receive payment from the issuer of your credit card, you agree to pay all amounts due upon demand directly to Intervet, and Intervet further reserves the right to either suspend or terminate your subscription in such circumstances. In the event of any failure by you to make payment, you will be responsible for all reasonable expenses (including attorneys' fees) incurred by Intervet in collecting such amounts. In the event you supply a promotion code for the purpose of obtaining a discounted subscription fee, Intervet will determine your eligibility for such discount. Any such determination by Intervet shall be in Intervet's sole discretion. In the event you supply a promotion code and Intervet determines that you are ineligible for the discounted subscription fee, you will be charged the non-discounted subscription fee stated on the authorization form. You understand that you may terminate this authorization at any time by calling Intervet at 1-888-HOMEAGAIN. Any such termination will become effective within three (3) business days after Intervet receives your call, and it will not affect any action taken in reliance on your consent or the continuing enforceability of the Subscriber Agreement.

    The Site is offered as a service to pet owners. Any health-related information supplied through the Site or by any employee or agent of Intervet, whether by telephone, e-mail, letter, facsimile, or other form of communication, is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment, and it is important that you not make medical decisions without first consulting a licensed veterinarian. You should never disregard professional medical advice or delay in seeking such advice because of something you have read on the Site. IF YOU HAVE A MEDICAL EMERGENCY OR NEED IMMEDIATE MEDICAL TREATMENT FOR YOUR PET, PLEASE CONSULT AN ANIMAL HOSPITAL OR EMERGENCY VETERINARY FACILITY.

Unless otherwise specified herein, the Subscriber Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and Intervet and governs your use of the Site and Services. If any portion of the Subscriber Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable, that portion shall be construed in a manner consistent with applicable law to reflect, as nearly as possible, the original intention of the parties, and the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect.
