TERMS OF USE: “Animal Care Training”, Variants, and Components

Animal Care Technologies (“ACT”) operates this and other websites (“Animal Care Training”, its variants and components

therein, henceforth referred to as the “Service”) to provide online training resources for animal health care personnel and

those seeking a career in animal health care. By using the Service, you agree to the terms and conditions set forth herein

(“Terms of Use”). Additional terms and conditions applicable to specific areas of the Service or to particular content or

transactions are also posted, and together with these Terms of Use govern your use of those areas, content, or transactions.

ACT reserves the right to modify these Terms of Use at any time without prior notice. Your use of the Service following any such

modification constitutes your agreement to the Terms of Use as modified. ACT reserves the right to suspend or deny access to

the Service to anyone at any time in order to protect itself and its affiliates from suspected harm.

1. Use of the Service

With an active account, having a billing cycle and valid payment method established, and at least one active license seat,

defined as a single username and password login credential, you may use the Service and the information, writings, videos,

images, and/or other works that you see, hear, or otherwise experience within the Service (singly or collectively, the “Content”)

solely for your personal, non-commercial purposes. Your username and password credential may not be shared or disclosed,

and you may not give access to the Service or Content to any other individuals who do not hold license seats on your account.

You may not assign login credentials to more individuals than the number of license seats included with your subscription. All

license seat holders are bound by the Terms of Use and may not share credentials, access, use, or Content with anyone who

does not occupy a paid license seat on the account of which the individual is authorized use. The Content may be displayed as a

presentation to any or all of the license seat holders as a group, or the Service may be used and the Content may be displayed

on individual devices by individual license seat holders. The Service and its Content may not be resold or redistributed in any

form or fashion, nor may the Content be used or viewed outside of the Service, i.e. the “ACT User Interface”, without a signed

attorney’s office for prosecution.

You acknowledge that the amount of any recurring charge may vary for reasons that may include promotional offers,

subscription price changes, and/or changing or adding Service(s), and you authorize ACT to charge your designated Payment

ACT reserves the right to change the price and billing period for its Service or any of its components at any time. Any price or

billing period changes will occur only after the administrator of the account is notified by email at least 30 days before the

scheduled price change date, allowing you to modify your billing plan or cancel before your next billing date. It is your

responsibility to keep the administrator’s email address accurate. If you do not reply to the email or contact ACT before the

next billing date, you accept the new terms of billing.
