You can review the most current version of the TOS at any time at https://pets-n-friends.com/tos.php. By accessing and using the Pets 'n' Friends Services, you accept and agree to be bound by the terms and provision of the TOS. The TOS is a legal agreement between you and Pets 'n' Friends and applies to you whether you are a user of the Site and Pets 'n' Friends Services (defined below), a customer of Pets 'n' Friends Paid Services (defined below) or a visitor just browsing the Site (collectively, "Users"). The TOS limits Pets 'n' Friends's liability and obligations to you, grants us certain rights in your Content (defined below) and allows us to change, suspend or terminate your access to and use of the Site and Pets 'n' Friends Services.

IMPORTANT - MULTI ACCOUNTING
Following the introduction of email registered accounts (14th December 2017) we wish to clarify the TOS as follows. If (on the sole basis of the judgment of any administrator appointed by Pets 'n' Friends to investigate multi-accounting) an account exists for the primary purpose of enriching another account, notwithstanding whether either or both accounts is known to belong to a unique real person, this is considered to be cheating, and can result in sanctions up to and including the banning of both the sending and receiving accounts with loss of all game property.

By User: You may terminate your Pets 'n' Friends account at any time for any reason by uninstalling the application on Facebook, if applicable, or by e-mailing "Forum Admin" on our forum at https://www.totallysocial.me/mspforum/. After receipt of your termination notice, Pets 'n' Friends will terminate your account. Any fees paid by you prior to your termination are nonrefundable, including any fees paid in advance for the term during which you terminate. Termination of your account shall not relieve you of any obligation to pay any accrued fees or charges.
By Pets 'n' Friends: Pets 'n' Friends reserves the right, in its sole discretion, at any time to modify, discontinue or terminate the Site and Pets 'n' Friends Services, or modify these TOS without advance notice. All modified terms and conditions will be effective after they are posted on the Site (unless a longer notice period is required by applicable law). If any modified terms and conditions are not acceptable to you, your sole remedy is to cease using the Site and Pets 'n' Friends Services, and if applicable, cancel your Pets 'n' Friends account.

Fees. If you purchase any services that we offer for a fee, including without limitation any premium User services, either on a one-time or subscription basis (collectively, "Paid Services"), you agree to pay all fees and charges specified when you signed up for the Services and any part thereof. All fees are exclusive of applicable taxes (eg sales, use, or value-added tax), unless otherwise stated, and you are solely responsible for the payment of any such taxes that may be imposed on your use of the Services.
Credit Card Authorisation. You may be asked to provide Pets 'n' Friends with a credit card number from a card issuer that we accept in order to activate and/or pay for any fees related to Paid Services. You agree that any credit card and related billing and payment information that you provide may be shared by Pets 'n' Friends with companies, such as payment processors and/or credit agencies, solely for the purposes of checking credit, effecting payment to Pets 'n' Friends and servicing your account. Pets 'n' Friends may seek pre-authorisation of your credit card account prior to a purchase to verify the credit card is valid and/or has the necessary funds or credit available to cover your purchase. These pre-authorisations will reduce your available balance by the authorisation amount until it is released or reconciled with the actual charge. Please contact your card issuer if you have additional questions regarding when an authorisation amount will be removed from your statement.
Payment Method. Pets 'n' Friends will charge the subscription fee and any other additional fees you authorise to the charge or credit card account provided by you. By authorising Pets 'n' Friends to charge a credit card for the fees associated with your subscription, you are authorising Pets 'n' Friends to automatically continue charging that card (or any replacement card if the original card is renewed, lost, stolen, or changed for any reason by the card issuer, and the issuer informs Pets 'n' Friends of the new replacement card account) for all fees or charges associated with your subscription including any renewal fees as described below. You authorise the card issuer to pay any amounts described herein and authorise Pets 'n' Friends, or any other company that acts as a billing agent for Pets 'n' Friends, to continue to attempt to charge all sums described herein to your credit card account until such amounts are paid in full. You agree to provide Pets 'n' Friends updated information on your credit card upon Pets 'n' Friends's request and any time the information earlier provided is no longer valid. If payment is not received by Pets 'n' Friends from your credit card issuer or its agents, you agree to pay all amounts due upon demand by Pets 'n' Friends.
You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold Pets 'n' Friends, its officers, directors, employees and agents, harmless from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, losses, and expenses, including without limitation reasonable attorney's fees and costs, arising out of or in any way connected with (i) your access to or use of the Site, Pets 'n' Friends Services, Pets 'n' Friends Materials and Content; (ii) your violation of the TOS; or (iii) your violation of any third party right, including without limitation any intellectual property right, publicity, confidentiality, property or privacy right.
