SMS Texting Terms and Conditions
Last updated and effective as of: March 9, 2018
AMERICAN PET RESORT, LLC and its affiliates ("we," "us," "our") offer subscription text message programs. Customers may ask us to enroll them in a text message alert program. We will enroll you in SMS texting services, and you will have an opportunity to confirm or decline the service via a reply to an initial text message you receive from us. By replying YES to the message received from 80307 you are confirming a subscription to this text message program. Message frequency is about 4 messages a month.
We do not have a separate charge for this service; however, message and data rates may apply from your mobile carrier. Subject to the terms and conditions of your mobile carrier, you may receive text messages sent to your mobile phone.
By providing your consent to participate in our program, you approve any such charges from your mobile carrier. Charges for text messages may appear on your mobile phone bill or be deducted from your prepaid balance. We reserve the right to terminate the program and our SMS service, in whole or in part, at any time without notice. The information in any message may be subject to certain time lags and/or delays. We, and the carriers, wireless service providers and network operators are not liable for delayed or undelivered messages. T-Mobile® is not liable for delayed or undelivered messages. Delivery of SMS messages is subject to effective transmission from your wireless service provider/network operator. You are responsible for managing the types of SMS texts you receive. If you have any questions or need help, text HELP to 80307, or call 1-877-738-7752.
To stop receiving text messages, text STOP, STOP ALL, END, QUIT, NO CANCEL or UNSUBSCRIBE to 80307. By enrolling in this subscription program, you consent that following such a request to unsubscribe, you will receive one (1) final message from us confirming that you have been inactivated in our system. Following such confirmation message, no additional text messages will be sent unless you re-activate your subscription.
We may use an automatic dialing system to deliver text messages to you. The Federal Communications Commission defines an "automatic telephone dialing system" or auto-dialer as equipment that has the capacity to store or produce telephone numbers to be called and to call such numbers. 47 C.F.R. § 64.1200. By your subscription or consent to our program, you give us your express consent to to use an automatic dialing system to deliver text messages to the telephone or cell phone number to which you have directed us to transmit these text messages.

- Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) Procedure
A. DMCA Complaints
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the "DMCA") provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under United States Copyright Law. If you believe in good faith that Submissions infringe your copyright, you (or your agent) may send Pet Paradise a notice requesting that the Submission(s) be removed from the Site(s), or access to it be blocked. The notice must include the following information:
(a) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
(b) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed (or if multiple copyrighted works located on the Sites are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works);
(c) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity, and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to allow Pet Paradise to locate the Submission(s);
(d) the name, address, telephone number and email address (if available) of the complaining party so it may be contacted;
(e) a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the Submission in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or the law; and
(f) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
DMCA Complaints must meet the then current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.copyright.gov/ for details. DMCA Complaints concerning materials on Sites should be sent to Pet Paradise’s Designated Agent to receive notification:
American Pet Resort, LLC
ATTN: DMCA Complaint
You may also send the required information by email to email@example.com with "DMCA Complaint" in the subject line.
Please note that you may be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees) if you materially misrepresent that material on a website is infringing the copyrights of others. If you are uncertain whether material on a website is infringing, Pet Paradise recommends seeking advice of an attorney.
B. DMCA Counter Notification
If Pet Paradise removes or disables access to content in response to a DMCA Complaint, Pet Paradise will make reasonable attempts to contact the owner of the removed or disabled content, or the owner’s agent. If Pet Paradise removed your material pursuant to another person’s DMCA Complaint and you contend that such material does not infringe upon another’s copyright rights, you may provide Pet Paradise with a counter-notification containing the following details:
(a) Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or disabled;
(b) your name, address and telephone number;
(c) a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for judicial district in which your address is located or, if your address is outside of the USA, for any judicial district in which Pet Paradise may be found and that you will accept service of process from the person who submitted a notice in compliance with the section (c)(1)(C) of the DMCA, as generally described above;
(d) a statement, under penalty of perjury, that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material in question; and
(e) your physical or electronic signature.
You must send this notification to the following address:
American Pet Resort, LLC
ATTN: DMCA Counter Notification
You may also send the required information by email to firstname.lastname@example.org with "DMCA Counter Notification" in the subject line.
In addition to the foregoing, the DMCA Counter Notification should contain all of the necessary information required by the DMCA, which can be found at http://www.copyright.gov/. Please note, however, that this is not a substitute for legal advice and you should obtain legal advice to better understand your rights and obligations under the DMCA and applicable laws.
