Terms and Conditions

The following describes the Terms of Service Conditions of Use for our website.

By using this website, you agree to obey these Terms of Service and Conditions of Use. Please read them carefully.

In Plain English

Healthy Dog For Life.com is owned and operated by Dan Scott. It is our policy to create awesome products and services to help your dog to better life long health and wellbeing – we simply love dogs and want the best for ALL of them and so we hold all our customers and prospects in very high regard. We will never do anything to cheat you or deceive you, we will not spam you or spy on you and we will never share your information with any third party. We’ve done our best to present all information on this site accurately and all the testimonials are 100% real testimonials from real people.

Basically, we’re an honest business and we’d be glad to tell our grandma (or yours) about everything we do, as we have nothing to hide or be ashamed of.

Below, there’s a whole bunch of lawyer-speak, which is designed to cover us in every possible way, in case someone gets it into their heads to sue us.

In this terms and conditions document as well as in our privacy policy, the following terminology applies: “customer”, “client”, “you” and “yours” refer to you, the person accessing our website and accepting the terms. “The company”, “ourselves”, “we” and “us” refers to Healthy Dog For Life.com. “Party”, “parties” and “us” refers to both the customer and ourselves. All terms refer to the offer, acceptance and consideration of payment necessary to undertake the process of our assistance to the customer in the most appropriate manner. Any use of the above terminolgy or other words in the singular, plural, capitalization and/or he/she or they, are taken as interchangeable and therefore as referring to same.

Our website (and other “internal” websites stemming from it, such as specific membership sites or webpages pertinent to the main website or weblog) is an online (and, periodically, offline) information service and is subject to your compliance with the terms and conditions set forth below (all parts and parties collectively referred to as our website).

Any other policies, notices, or other legal/administrative pages contained in our website are necessarily incorporated into these Terms of Service and Conditions of Use.  This may include, without limitation, a DMCA Policy, Disclaimer, Copyright Notice, Anti-Spam Policy, and FTC Compliance Policy.

You agree to obey all applicable laws and regulations regarding your use of our website and the content and materials provided in it.

Privacy Statement

We are committed to protecting your privacy. Authorized employees within the company access any information collected from individual customers on a need-to-know basis. Please see our full privacy policy on all details concerning your privacy, while using our website.

Confidentiality

Any information concerning the customer and the respective customer records are regarded as confidential and will therefore not be divulged to any third party, unless we are legally required to do so by the appropriate authorities. Customer data is passed on only to services required to maintain our business, such as payment processors (PayPal, Stripe, others) and customer databases (Aweber). These third party services guarantee the privacy of your data in their own terms. Customers have the right to request sight of and copies of any and all customer records we keep, on the provisio that we are given reasonable notice of such a request. We will not sell, share or rent your personal information to any third party or use your email address for unsolicited mail. Any mails sent by Healthy Dog For Life.com will only be in connection with the provision of agreed services and products.

Payment

Payments are processed through third-party payment providers like PayPal and Stripe, to insure the best possible customer experience and ensure the customer’s privacy. All our products are delivered as downloads, on receipt of payment. All goods remain property of the company until paid for in full. The download instructions are sent by email, after the payment is received. Additional charges, late fees, chargeback fees and other fees are determined by our payment providers.

Refund Policy

This Refund Policy has been provided for your protection and to fully disclose what refund policy is in place for all products and services available from this site. It is always recommended that before you purchase products or services on the Internet, including those on this website, that you conduct your own research and exercise due diligence.

Where expressly stated on any individual product sale page for guarantee or refund, that individual page’s guarantee and/or refund policy is in place. If any individual product sale page does not have it’s own guarantee or refund policy in place on the page, it should be understood that there is no such guarantee or refund policy for that product and that no guarantees are made and no refunds given.

It should also be noted and understood that all services provided by this website in respect to any product sold on this website do not have a refund policy and that once a service based product is paid for, after 14 days of service the sale is final and that there is no refund.

Our website reserves the right to expel users of our website and prevent their further access to our website for violating this agreement or any law or regulation, and also reserves the right to remove communications which are abusive, illegal, or disruptive.

Social Media Warning (Divulgence of Personal & Private Information)

Social media has provided a platform for internet users to disclose much personal information about themselves, in a way that seems innocuous, if not proper and expected.  However, more than a few folks have already lived to regret personal information that was shared either by them or others.  This has long been true of simple email.  It is exponentially true of social websites and applications for social media on any other website, including this one.  You are cautioned against carelessly disclosing information.

3. Indemnification.

You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless our website, its members, officers, directors, employees, agents, licensors, suppliers and any third party information providers to our website from and against all losses, expenses, damages and costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, resulting from any use of our website or violation of this Agreement (including negligent or wrongful conduct) by you or any other person accessing our website.

4. Third Party Rights.

The provisions of paragraphs 2 (Use of the Service), and 3 (Indemnification) are for the benefit of our website and its owners, officers, directors, employees, agents, licensors, suppliers, and any third party information providers to the Service.  Each of these individuals or entities shall have the right to assert and enforce those provisions directly against you on its/their own behalf.

5.Term; Termination.

We reserve the right to investigate complaints or reported violations of these Terms of Service and Conditions of Use and to take any action we deem appropriate, including but not limited to reporting any suspected unlawful activity to law enforcement officials, regulators, or other third parties and disclosing any data necessary or appropriate to such persons or entities relating to your profile, email addresses, usage history, IP addresses and traffic data.

This Agreement, in whole or in part, may be terminated without notice at any time for any reason. The provisions of paragraphs 1 (Copyright, Licenses and Idea Submissions), 2 (Use of the Service), 3 (Indemnification), 4 (Third Party Rights), 6 (Hiring an Attorney / No Attorney-Client Relationship), and 7 (Miscellaneous) shall survive any termination of this Agreement, in whole or in part.

6.Hiring an Investment Advisor, Attorney, or Medical or Other Professional / No Attorney-Client Relationship or Fiduciary Capacity.

Choosing a lawyer, doctor, or investment advisor is a serious matter and should NOT be based solely on data contained on our website or in advertisements.

The law is constantly changing and the data may not be complete or accurate depending on your particular legal issue.  Each legal issue depends on its individual facts and different jurisdictions have different laws and regulations.  This is why you should seriously consider hiring licensed, professional counsel in your jurisdiction.

Medical issues are complex, and can often stem from both organic and psychological factors.  Never should a website be used as a source of diagnosing or treating medical problems.

7.Miscellaneous.

Governing Law

This Agreement shall treated as though executed, set in force, and performed in the State of our address on record (“Home State”).  Accordingly, it shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of the Home State in terms of those applicable to agreements, without regard to conflict of law principles.

Disputes

Any cause of action by you with respect to our website must be instituted within one (1) year after the cause of action arose or be forever waived and barred. All actions shall be subject to the limitations set forth in these Terms of Service and Conditions of Use.  Any legal claim arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service and Conditions of Use or our website, excluding intellectual property right infringement and other claims by us, shall be settled confidentially through mandatory binding arbitration per the American Arbitration Association commercial arbitration rules.  The arbitration shall be conducted in the Home State.  Each party shall bear one half of the arbitration fees and costs incurred, and each party shall bear its own lawyer fees.  All claims shall be arbitrated on an individual basis, and shall not be consolidated in any arbitration with any claim or controversy of any other party.

Modification

Neither the course of conduct between the parties nor industry trade practice shall act to modify any provision of this Agreement.

Assignability

Our website may assign its rights and duties under this Agreement to any party at any time without notice to you.

Contra Preferentum

The language in these Terms of Service and Conditions of Use shall be interpreted as to its fair meaning and not strictly for or against any party.  Any rule of construction to the effect that ambiguities are to be resolved against the drafting party (i.e. – “contra preferentum”) shall not apply in interpreting these Terms of Service and Conditions of Use, as the Agreement shall be construed as having been co-authored by the parties.

Severability

Should any part of these Terms of Service and Conditions of Use be held invalid or unenforceable, that portion shall be construed as much as possible consistent with applicable law and severability shall apply to the remaining portions, so that they remain in full force and effect.

Waiver

Our failure to enforce any provision of these Terms of Service and Conditions of Use shall not be deemed a waiver of the provision nor of the right to enforce the provision.

Our rights under these Terms of Service and Conditions of Use shall survive any termination of this agreement.

Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved.

QUESTIONS/COMMENTS/CONCERNS: If you have any questions about the contents of this page, or simply wish to reach us for any other reason, you may do so by using our Contact information.

The following describes the Federal Trade Commission Compliance for our website.

We make every effort at candor regarding any products or services we use, recommend, or otherwise make mention of.  We strive to clearly differentiate between our own products or services versus those of third parties, to facilitate inquiries, support, and customer care.  Likewise, just as we (and any other legitimate business) may profit from the sale of our own products or services, we may also profit from the sale of others’ products or services (like any retailer).  Additionally, wherever products or services may give rise to income generation, we endeavor to provide realistic and factual data, but highlight the fact that the variables impacting results are so numerous and uncontrollable that no guarantees are in any way made.  It is our goal to embrace the guidelines and requirements of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) for the benefit of all, and with that in mind provide the following disclosures regarding compensation and disclaimer regarding earnings & income.

Note that material connections may not be made known at every single advertisement or affiliate link.  Thus, to be safe, you should simply assume there is a material connection and that we may receive compensation in money or otherwise for anything you purchase as a result of visiting this website, and also that we may be paid merely by you clicking any link.

Amazon.com

One or more parties affiliated or associated with our website in some way may be an Amazon.com affiliate.  This means that links to products on Amazon.com, as well as reviews leading to purchases, can result in a commission being earned.  Again, disclosure of this material connection and the potential for compensation may not be made at every single possible opportunity.  To be safe, simply assume there is a material connection and potential for compensation at all times.  While this does not imply skewed or unduly biased reviews, full disclosure calls for this warning.

Compensation

You should assume that we may be compensated for purchases of products or services mentioned on this website that are not created, owned, licensed, or otherwise materially controlled by us. Stated differently, while most people obviously understand that individuals make a living by way of the profit that remains after the costs associated with providing their product or service are covered, at least theoretically there may be someone out there who does not understand that a third party can “affiliate” someone else’s products or services and be compensated by the product or service creator/owner for helping spread the word about their offering. Just compare it to retailers.  They seldom produce anything, but rather make their money connecting product and service creators with end users.

Admonition

Having said that, you cannot count on anyone looking after your interests but you. So, you ought to always do your own research into various offers and opportunities, to the extent that leaves you comfortable, doing your own due diligence prior to making any purchase of any product or service from this website or any other. Here is a great set of guidelines for you to keep in mind:

First, just always operate from the position that any website proprietor, including us, will have a material connection to the product or service provider, and may be compensated as a result of your purchase, unless expressly stated otherwise. Aside from your purchases, note that even you actions could result in earnings for this website.  For instance, there could be ads displayed on this website that we are compensated for displaying whenever a website visitor clicks on them.

Second, to the extent that we have every interest in positively furthering our business relationship with you, we certainly desire to share only those offerings that we believe will benefit you. Just because we are not the founder or originator of the product or service, we are not going to withhold knowledge of this offering from you. If you can get some benefit from it, regardless of whether or not you’ve taken advantage of our own products and/or services, we want you to do well. Thus, we make a good faith effort to only present to you items that we either personally use, have actually tried, or else have faith in the reputation of the provider or concept. You can count on us making this determination based on all relevant and applicable information at the time of the recommendation.

Third, despite the fact that it would be counterproductive to mention products or services that you’ll find disappointing or inferior, not only are people different, but it’s also possible for us to have a lapse in judgment. Thus, to be extra cautious, even if you believe in our good faith motives, you may as well go ahead and keep in mind that we could be at least partially influenced by the monetization factor of listing various products or services on our website. Furthermore, in that vein, the reality is that there are sometimes other connections between parties that are not monetary, such as personal capital, goodwill, or otherwise, that could be an underlying undercurrent swaying the decision to promote a particular offering. Due to this hypothetical possibility, you should again simply nor rely solely on what we have to say, but rather just form your own independent opinion just to be safe. Finally, bear in mind that we might also receive free products or services, gifts, or review copies of items too.

Testimonials

Testimonials regarding the outcome or performance of using any product or service are provided to embellish your understanding of the offering.  While great effort is made to ensure that they are factually honest, we are not liable for errors and omissions.  Aside from human error, some information may be provided by third parties, such as customers or product/service providers.  The best results are not uncommonly correlated with the best efforts, discipline, diligence, and so on, and thus the results depicted cannot, in any way, be construed as common, typical, expected, normal, or associated with the average user’s experience with any given product or service.  Exceptional results may be depicted by our website as highlights, but you are responsible for understanding that atypical outcomes may not reflect your experience.   Aside from market conditions, products and services change over time.  Older products may lose effectiveness.  Newer products may not have a reliable track record.

Affiliates & Other Third Parties

It should also be noted that we only have control over, and thus only accept responsibility for, the content of this website authored by us.  Any representations made by others should be considered prima facie unauthorized.  You may also read, hear, or otherwise come into contact with commentary about any of our products & services or offerings, and should assume those have likewise not been authorized.

While information, in any form, can arise, at any time, regarding our products & services, there may be times when this results from an affiliate relationship.  In other words, we may permit our products & services to be marketed through other individuals, businesses, websites, and otherwise, just as providers of goods and services use retailers and other vendors to make available what they offer.

You should not construe a third-party offer as an endorsement by that third party of any product or service.  You should, more conservatively, view it as an offer to buy something.  Likewise, as alluded to previously, note that we cannot fully control all marketing practices by all parties.  With the use of “mirror” sites, indirect or unauthorized affiliates, “tiered” affiliate structures, and so on, policing the world wide web with any modicum of thoroughness is unlikely.  We make reasonable efforts to ensure our affiliates comply with our policies and represent our products & services consistent with our guidelines.  However, we cannot always guarantee they will do so.  You are always free to report concerns or abuses via our Contact information.

Customer Care

Last, but not least, please note that our role in briefing you on products and services other than our own is simply as a “matchmaker.” We do not provide any support or customer service for those items and you should always contact the owner or provider of those products or services to have any and all questions answered to your satisfaction before purchasing.

QUESTIONS/COMMENTS/CONCERNS: If you have any questions about the contents of this page, or simply wish to reach us for any other reason, you may do so by using our Contact information.

The following describes the DMCA Compliance for our website.

We are committed to responding to any alleged copyright violations, should they occur.  Notice of any alleged violation should take the form proposed by the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act as revealed at http://www.copyright.gov.

Remedy

If any material infringes on the copyright of any offended party, we may remove the content, prevent access to it, terminate or block access for those responsible for the content, and/or any other action deemed appropriate.  We may also pass along record of the incident for documentation and/or publication by third parties at our discretion.

Not Legal Advice/No Attorney-Client Relationship

If you believe your rights have been violated, it can be a serious matter.  This DMCA notice exists solely to effectuate our efforts, as website owners, to prevent and eliminate infringement on intellectual property rights.  It is no substitute for the assistance of competent legal counsel.  Other remedies and action, such as against an internet service provider (ISP), may exist.  You may wish to seek legal help immediately.

Notification

For your convenience and to speed resolution, notice of alleged infringement may be tendered via email, using the email address and/or contact information provided on this website.  We warn that you will be liable for any and all statutory and common law damages, as well as court costs and attorney fees, if you falsify a claim that your copyrights have been violated. Six figure awards have already been granted for bogus complaints, so seeking the help of competent counsel is advised.

Assuming you still wish to assert copyright violation, you should provide the following to speed up the process:

STEP 1. Identify in adequate detail the copyrighted item you believe has been violated, by providing the URL to the protected work, ISBN#, or otherwise.

STEP 2. Identify the URL of the webpage that you assert is infringing the copyrighted work listed in item #1 above.

STEP 3. Provide contact information for yourself (email address is preferred, phone is suggested).

STEP 4. Provide information sufficient to allow us to notify the owner/administrator of the allegedly infringing webpage or other content such as a blog or forum posting (email address is preferred).

STEP 5. Include the following statement: “I have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted materials described above as allegedly infringing is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.”

STEP 6. Include the following statement: “I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate and that I am the copyright owner or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.”

STEP 7. Digitally sign your affirmation.
