DogFoodCity Does Not Provide Medical Advice
The information that you obtain or receive from DogFoodCity is for informational and scheduling purposes only. The information provided on the Websites and in any other communications from or provided through Websites is not intended as a substitute for, nor does it replace, professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. Do not disregard, avoid or delay obtaining medical advice for your pet from a qualified health care professional because of something you may have read on the Websites. DogFoodCity does not recommend or endorse any specific veterinarian. If you rely on any of the information provided by the Websites, you do so solely at your own risk.
Provider Relationships and Lists
In connection with using the Websites and related services to locate and schedule appointments with veterinarians, you understand that you are ultimately responsible for choosing your own veterinarians to provide services to your pet. DogFoodCity selects veterinarians to be listed on the Websites pursuant to a contractual agreement with the veterinarians. In addition to signing a contract, veterinarians may also pay a fee to DogFoodCity in order to appear on the Websites.
Dispute Resolution/ Choice of Law
Most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer’s satisfaction by contacting our customer service department by email at customerservice@DogFoodCity.com, or call us at (800) 844-1427. In the unlikely event that Our customer service department is unable to resolve a complaint you may have to your satisfaction (or if we have not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after attempting to do so informally), you and we each agree to resolve those disputes through binding arbitration or in small claims court, rather than proceeding in a court of general jurisdiction. You and we further agree that each may bring claims against the other only in an individual capacity and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding.
Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. Any arbitration under this Agreement will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted even if the arbitral body permits claims to proceed on a class wide basis. For any non-frivolous claim that does not exceed $75,000, we will pay all costs of the arbitration. Moreover, in arbitration you are entitled to recover attorneys’ fees from us to at least the same extent as you would be entitled to in court.
You further waive any and all rights and benefits otherwise conferred by any statutory or non-statutory law of any jurisdiction that would purport to limit the scope of a release or waiver. You waive and relinquish all rights and benefits that you have or may have under Section 1542 of the Civil Code of the State of California or any similar provision of the statutory or non-statutory law of any other jurisdiction to the full extent that you may lawfully waive all such rights and benefits.
This Agreement is governed by the laws of the State of New York. If any part of this Agreement is determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable, it will not impact any other provision of this Agreement, all of which will remain in full force and effect.
If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact us at service@DogFoodCity.com.
