By accessing or using the Digital Services you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you do not agree with these Terms, then you do not have permission to access or use the Digital Services.
DIG Labs may change, modify, add or remove portions of these Terms at any time. You should periodically check these Terms for changes. Your continued use of Digital Services following the posting of any changes to these Terms will mean that you accept and agree to such changes. As long as you comply with these Terms, DIG Labs grants you a personal, non-exclusive, non-transferable, limited privilege to access and use the Digital Services.
2. Content and Intellectual Property
All information, data, software, photographs, graphics, videos, text, images, logos, typefaces, sounds and other material (collectively “Content”), including but not limited to the selection, coordination, arrangement and enhancement of such Content, contained on the Digital Services is owned, controlled or licensed by or to DIG Labs, and is protected by trade dress, copyright, patent and trademark laws, and various other intellectual property rights and unfair competition laws.
Except as expressly provided in these Terms, no part of the Digital Services and no Content may be copied, reproduced, republished, uploaded, posted, publicly displayed, encoded, translated, transmitted or distributed in any way (including “mirroring”) to any other computer, server, web site or other medium for publication or distribution or for any commercial enterprise, without DIG Labs's express prior written consent.
You may not modify, remove, delete, augment, add to, publish, transmit, participate in the transfer or sale of, create derivative works from or in any way exploit any of the Content, in whole or in part. If no specific restrictions are displayed, you may make copies of select portions of the Content, provided that the copies are made only for your personal information and non-commercial use and that you do not alter or modify the Content in any way, and maintain any notices contained in the Content, such as all copyright notices, trademark legends or other proprietary rights notices.
3. Health-Related Content
Any health-related Content on DIG Labs's Digital Services that describes general principles of health care should not be construed as specific instructions for individual pets. It is not intended as a substitute for a consultation with your veterinarians, and should not be used to diagnose or treat a health problem without consulting your veterinarian. It is for reference only and should not be used to determine treatment for specific medical conditions – because only a health care provider can do that. DIG Labs's Digital Services and their health-related information and resources are not intended and must not be taken as the rendering of medical or professional health care advice or services, or the practice of medicine or professional health care in any jurisdiction. You should discuss the information provided with a veterinarian or other licensed health care professional. You should also check product information (including package inserts) regarding dosage, precautions, warnings, interactions and contraindications before administering or using any device, drug, herb, vitamin or supplement discussed on DIG Labs's Digital Services.
You understand and agree that in no event will DIG Labs be liable for any decision made or action taken in reliance on the information contained on, or accessible through, DIG Labs's Digital Services. Reliance on any information provided by, or otherwise appearing on, DIG Labs's Digital Services is solely at your own risk.
Proper treatment of health conditions of your pets depends upon a number of factors, including, but not limited to, your pet’s medical history, diet and medication regimen. Your veterinarian or your health care provider can best assess and address your pet’s health care needs. You should consult with your health care provider before starting a new diet or supplement regimen for your pet.

If you provide any information that is fraudulent, untrue, inaccurate, incomplete or not current, or we have reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is fraudulent, untrue, inaccurate, incomplete or not current, we reserve the right to suspend or terminate your account without notice and refuse any and all current and future use of the Digital Services. Because any termination of your access to the Digital Services may be effected without prior notice, you acknowledge and agree that we may immediately deactivate or delete your account and all related information and files in your account and bar any further access to such files or the Digital Services.
Furthermore, you agree that we shall not be liable to you or any third party for any termination of your access to your account or the Digital Services.
