No rights not explicitly listed are granted.
Users may use the Service to seek and engage veterinary professionals for pet care information and resources (“Customer,” or “you”). TeleTails offers the engagement of veterinary services through the Service which are performed by TeleTails’ associated consulting veterinary professionals (“Providers”).

Some parts or all of the Service may not be available to the general public, and we may impose eligibility rules from time to time. We reserve the right to amend or eliminate these eligibility requirements at any time.
By requesting to use, registering to use and/or using the Service, you represent and warrant that you have the right, authority and capacity to enter into these Terms and you commit to abide by all of the terms and conditions hereof. You also represent and warrant that you (i) are not a competitor of TeleTails; and (ii) are not in a geographic region that prohibits the use of virtual veterinary care services.

We reserve the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Service, or any part thereof, with or without notice.
The Service may contain typographical errors or inaccuracies, including relating to price, and may not be complete or current.

IF YOUR PET IS EXPERIENCING A MEDICAL EMERGENCY, YOU SHOULD IMMEDIATELY GO TO YOUR LOCAL VETERINARIAN OR EMERGENCY CLINIC.
While the Service may provide access to veterinary information, the content and information disseminated is not and should not be considered a medical diagnosis or a replacement for in-person veterinary advice, diagnosis, or treatment. The engagement with Providers and materials appearing on or through the Service including but not limited to the virtual session itself, summaries, descriptions, publications and any other such materials, are for informational purposes only.
GENERALLY, OUR SERVICE MAY NOT BE A COMPLETE SUBSTITUTE FOR IN-PERSON VISITS, CONSULTATIONS AND EXAMINATIONS, OR ADVICE, DIAGNOSIS OR TREATMENT, WITH OR BY, VETERINARIANS AND SHOULD NOT BE RELIED UPON AS SUCH. BY USING THE SERVICES, CUSTOMER ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT THEIR USE OF THE SERVICES IS FOR GENERAL INFORMATION PURPOSES ONLY, AND IS NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR IN-PERSON EVALUATION, CONSULTATION AND EXAMINATION, OR ADVICE, DIAGNOSIS OR TREATMENT, WITH OR BY, VETERINARIANS. THE SERVICE CANNOT, AND DOES NOT ATTEMPT, TO REPLACE OR REPLICATE THE VALUE, INSIGHT, OR KNOWLEDGE THAT CAN ONLY BE GAINED BY A PHYSICAL, IN-PERSON EXAMINATION PERFORMED BY A VETERINARIAN OR OTHER PROVIDER. CERTAIN SYMPTOMS AND MEDICAL CONDITIONS CAN ONLY BE DETECTED IN-PERSON. IT IS EACH CUSTOMER’S SOLE RESPONSIBILITY TO DETERMINE THE SUITABILITY OF A TELEMEDICINE VERSUS AN IN-PERSON VISIT.

Any information provided to Customer by TeleTails or Providers via the Service does not constitute veterinary or any other professional diagnosis or treatment and does not suggest or propose a specific course of action for you. In order for a Provider to diagnose, treat, or prescribe medication to you or your pet, you must have established a valid Veterinarian-Client-Patient Relationship (“VCPR”) with that Provider under applicable law for the specific pet that is the subject of the Services. No VCPR shall be formed between Customer and TeleTails as a result of you using the Services. The laws, regulations, other governing authorities, standards, practices and procedures that apply to Customer’s particular question or situation may differ depending on Customer’s location and information typically discovered through in-person evaluations or visits. Providers available through the Services may be licensed, certified, educated, employed in or have experience in only particular jurisdictions or within particular fields. Communications with Providers through the Services are inherently limited, as described above, and do not involve in-person evaluations or visits, and do not include safeguards and procedures typical of in-person evaluations and visits.

Fees, Offerings, Cancellations and Payments
You agree to pay all fees or charges at the time a fee or charge is due and payable. Current fees and billing terms for the Service will be as described by TeleTails prior to your use of the Service, and such fees and billing terms may be updated by TeleTails from time to time in its sole discretion.
Access to the Service may require enrollment in a subscription (“Subscription”) and payment of Subscription fees. Subscription periods and fees are described further on the Service. If you purchase a Subscription, it may result in recurring charges to your Payment Method (as defined herein), and you agree that we may charge such amounts until such a time as your Subscription expires, is terminated, or you cancel the Subscription. We will automatically charge your Payment Method when Subscription fee payments are due. TeleTails subscriptions cover up to six (6) pets within a single household. Additional Subscription fees may apply for additional pets. In addition to other applicable remedies, we reserve the right to suspend and/or terminate your Subscription if your Payment Method is declined or fails and your account therefore is delinquent.
Customers may book the services being performed by TeleTails via a Provider (“Provider Services”), and at that time, will provide information on the animal or animals (each, a “Patient” and collectively the “Patients”) that will be receiving the Provider Services. Descriptions of, and to the extent applicable, rates associated with, Provider Services are listed on the Service. Either Customer or TeleTails may cancel a booking prior to the commencement of the Provider Services in accordance with TeleTails’ cancellation policy, available on the Service or otherwise through TeleTails. NOTE THAT CANCELLATION CHARGES MAY APPLY FOR CANCELLATIONS WITHIN A CERTAIN TIME OF THE SCHEDULED PERFORMANCE.
At the time for commencement of performance of the Provider Services, the Provider and Customer parties will, as the case may be, confer via video or digital remote consultation, exchange animal medical records or images, or meet in-person. At that time, each party may confirm each other’s presence or availability and the identity of the Patient. If a Patient or the Provider Services requested are different from what was booked, the pricing of the Provider Services may be adjusted. TeleTails, Provider or Customer may end the performance of the Provider Services at any time through the functionality of the Service.
At the end of the performance of the Provider Services, the Service will charge (i) Customer, or (ii) a service partner of TeleTails, if Customer is accessing the Service through a service partner, as applicable, for the applicable Provider Service.
Communications about any and all disputes related to cancellations or refunds related to Provider Services must be sent, along with a sufficiently detailed explanation of the dispute and the events or occurrences giving rise to the dispute, to email@example.com. All transactions are final, and except as may be available pursuant to the foregoing process, no refunds are available from TeleTails.
TeleTails may use a third-party payment processor (the “Payment Processor”) to bill and remit payments to users and to draw amounts from Users’ accounts as indicated. The processing of payments will be subject to the terms, conditions and privacy policies of the Payment Processor in addition to these Terms. We are not responsible for error by the Payment Processor. As a Customer, you agree to provide us accurate and complete information about you and your chosen payment provider or account (your “Payment Method”), including without limitation your credit card number, your credit card verification or other security code, the expiration date of your credit card, and your address. Verification of information may be required prior to the acknowledgment or completion of any transaction. You authorize us to share such information as well as transaction information with the Payment Processor. As a Customer, you agree to pay us, through the Payment Processor, all charges at the prices then in effect for any use of the Service. You agree to make payment using that selected Payment Method, and you authorize us, through the Payment Processor, to charge your Payment Method. We reserve the right to correct any errors or mistakes that it makes even if it has already requested or received payment. You represent and warrant that you have the legal right to use any credit card(s), bank accounts or other payment means used to initiate any transaction.
Provider Services involve the delivery of veterinary medical services using interactive audio, text, and video technology, where the Customer and the Patient are not in the same physical location as the Provider. During your virtual consultation with a Provider, details of the Patient’s health history and health status information may be discussed with you through the use of interactive video, audio, text, and other telecommunications technology, and your Provider may ask for your assistance to conduct an assessment of the Patient through these technologies. By accepting the terms of this Agreement, you acknowledge that you understand and agree with the following: you understand that no results can be guaranteed or assured, despite any anticipated benefits from the use of the Service; and that you consent to receive the Provider Services, and to the sharing and disclosing of your personal information, as well as information about the Patient, via the Service, as described in this Agreement.
You consent to the exchange and release of information and records (including communication in conjunction with use of the services) related to the Patient between and from TeleTails and your local/regular/referring veterinarian (or other applicable veterinary facility). TeleTails may store the Patient’s medical records in our systems so that the proper care may be provided, as well as share such information with your referring partners through which you first arrived at TeleTails.

THIS AGREEMENT CONTAINS A MANDATORY ARBITRATION PROVISION AND WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL. PLEASE READ IT CAREFULLY BEFORE AGREEING.
You agree that any claim or dispute arising out of or relating in any way to the Service will be resolved solely and exclusively by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement. The laws of the State of New York shall govern this Agreement, and shall be used in any arbitration proceeding.
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of this Agreement as a court would.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to the following address: Legal Department, TeleTails Inc., 1441 L ST NW, 12th FL, Washington, DC 20005.
Arbitration under this Agreement will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules then in effect, shall be conducted in English, and shall be located in New York, New York. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules.
You and TeleTails agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, both you and TeleTails agree that each have waived any right to a jury trial.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, you agree that we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property or other proprietary rights.
All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision or award by the arbitrator, will be strictly confidential for the benefit of all parties.
To the extent arbitrations does not apply, you agree that any dispute arising out of or relating to the Service, or to us, may only be brought by you in a state or federal court located in New York, New York. YOU HEREBY WAIVE ANY OBJECTION TO THIS VENUE AS INCONVENIENT OR INAPPROPRIATE, AND AGREE TO EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION AND VENUE IN NEW YORK.
