Web Site Terms and Conditions of Use

The following Liability Waiver, TERMS OF USE and PRIVACY POLICY are subject to change at any time and at the sole discretion of the Site owner and operator. Please visit the site regularly for updates.

Liability Waiver

We The Loved Dog™ and all our agents, including but not limited to Tamar Geller, agree to exercise due and reasonable care of your dog being trained or otherwise handled or cared for without liability on our part for loss or damage from disease, death, running away, theft, fire, injury to persons, other dogs, or property by said dog or other unavoidable causes due to diligence and care having been exercised.

The Loved Dog™ is not liable for dog’s performance. Although The Loved Dog™ will use all reasonable care to train owner’s dog, The Loved Dog™ cannot guarantee that the dog will respond adequately to commands at all times. Owner agrees that The Loved Dog™ will not be liable for any damage or loss resulting from the dog’s failure to respond to any commands or behavior modification for which The Loved Dog™ trained the dog. The effectiveness of completed training program depends on many factors over which The Loved Dog™ has no control. Such factors include, but are not limited to, the future health of the dog, the frequency and effectiveness of training reinforcement which the owner must give the dog and the degree of respect which the owner instills in the dog. Should the dog injure any person, or should the dog’s failure to respond to any command(s) result in damage to the property or person of any person (including the owner) owner agrees to absolve The Loved Dog™ from any and all obligations and to pay such damage to such person. Owner further agrees to hold harmless from any and all such claims.

Occasionally photographs or videos may be taken of dogs that are being trained. The owner gives us full permission to use any resulting photos/videos for use in promotion and/or training and education. All such materials will be considered the sole property of The Loved Dog™.

Any legal expenses incurred in defense or enforcement of this contract shall be the total responsibility of the owner or responsible party of the dog.

c. As stated in the Terms and Conditions, you will be deemed to have consented to the disclosure to, and use by, a subsequent owner or operator of a COMPANY Website or Service, of any information about you contained in the applicable COMPANY database, if COMPANY or one of its companies assigns its rights and obligations regarding any of your information at the time of a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or substantially all of COMPANY’s or such COMPANY company’s assets related to the applicable site or Service to a subsequent owner or operator.
d. The COMPANY and its companies may work together in order to provide portions of the COMPANY Websites and some Services (e.g., to fulfill prizes won in a sweepstakes, or to provide other support for a Service). These companies will handle your personally identifiable information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.
e. As stated above in “Personally Identifiable Information That We Collect – Special Promotions and Purchases; Submission of Content to be Published”, COMPANY may also work with third parties to provide some Services on our Websites. In connection with those Services, you are deemed to consent to us sharing your information with third parties who provide services such as processing of credit card transactions, customer service, promotion administration, order fulfillment and/or prize delivery, as applicable. Third parties who provide, or participate in, Services on COMPANY Websites are prohibited from using our customers’ personally identifiable information for marketing purposes and/or from sharing, selling, or otherwise using such information, unless you choose to opt in to marketing, sharing, or other uses by the third parties. If you do not want your information to be used for marketing (or other purposes unrelated to the provision of COMPANY Services) by a third party who participates in a Service on one of our sites, do not opt in to such use by that third party when you register to participate in the Service.
f. Please note that whenever you opt in to receive future communications from a third party, your information will be subject to the third party’s privacy policy. If you later decide that you do not want that third party to use your information, you will need to contact the third party directly, as we have no control over how third parties use information. You should always review the privacy policy of any party that collects your information to determine how that entity will handle your information.
g. COMPANY will not share, sell, rent, or disclose any personally identifiable information that we have collected except as stated herein, or in the following instances; 1) where we supply companies we have associations with, with your information in order to offer you services we feel may be of interest to you and who may then contact you by telephone or direct mail (unless you have opted out of their marketing programs under the procedures set forth by them); 2) where we are required by law, legal process, or court order to disclose; 3) where disclosure is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may cause or be causing harm to, or interference with, the COMPANY’s rights or property, other COMPANY Website users, or anyone else; or 4) to respond to an inquiry, request or complaint that you have made. COMPANY may also use IP addresses it collects in cooperation with Internet service providers, to identify users if we deem it necessary to comply with law, to enforce compliance with this Privacy Policy or our Terms and Conditions, or to protect our sites, customers, or others.

13. Our Commitment to Data Security
1. While COMPANY takes reasonable and appropriate precautions to protect your personally identifiable information from unauthorized disclosure and to prevent possible security breaches in our Websites, Services, and customer databases, no website, Internet transmission, computer system, or wireless connection is completely secure. Consequently, COMPANY cannot guarantee that unauthorized access, hacking, data loss, or other breaches will never occur. Your use of the COMPANY Websites and Services is at your own risk. COMPANY urges you to take steps to keep your information safe by memorizing your password or keeping it in a safe place (separate from your account information), logging out of your User Account, and closing your Web browser.
2. Whenever you give COMPANY sensitive or confidential information (for example, credit card numbers for Purchases), COMPANY will take commercially reasonable steps to protect the information by establishing a secure connection with your Web browser. COMPANY employs a security technology known as a secure-socket-layer (“SSL”) to protect the transmission of payment information to the site. Unless otherwise specified herein or on the Website where you make a Purchase, credit card numbers are used only for payment processing and are not retained for marketing purposes.

COMPANY does not endorse or sponsor other websites, is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of non-COMPANY sites, expressly disclaims any statements or assertions made on such websites, and denies and disclaims all liability associated with your use of, and the content on, such other sites and advertisements.
