Terms & Conditions For The Pet 24 Service
The Pet 24 service consists of two parts, Registration and the Lost and Found Service. Firstly, the customer must ensure that their details and the details of their pet are registered with Pet 24. Once this Registration has been properly completed, the customer may place the Pet 24 tag on their pet’s collar. The charges made by Pet 24 are for Registration only.
2. Lost and Found Service
Once the customer has registered their pet on the Pet 24 system for a fixed period, there is no charge made for the lost and found service or any other service that may be provided during this period. The customer may extend this period on or before its expiry by paying a registration renewal charge to Pet 24. It is the responsibility of the customer to ensure that this payment is made to Pet 24 in order to ensure continuity of service. Pet 24 will not be responsible for the failure of the registration to be renewed due to the correct payment not being made.
To obtain a refund of your initial registration charge for the Pet 24 service, you must return your pet tag to the retailer within 28 days of purchase. For tags returned within 28 days of purchase, you are entitled to a 100% refund. For tags returned after 28 days of purchase, you will not be entitled to a refund. To obtain a refund of your registration renewal charge for the Pet 24 service, you must return your pet tag to the retailer within 14 days of purchase. For tags returned within 14 days of purchase, you are entitled to a 100% refund. For tags returned after 14 days of purchase, you will not be entitled to a refund.
4. Replacement Tags
You may request a replacement from Pet 24 if you lose your original tag, or it becomes unusable for any reason. Pet 24 will supply a replacement tag and make a charge for the tag, administration, and post & packaging.
5. Updating Your Information
You may update details of you or your pet in two different ways. Online; you can visit our website at any time and update your details free of charge. A friend or relative can do this for you if you give them permission to do so. By telephone; you can call us to update your details.
6. Continuity of Service
We will make every effort to provide a continuous service. However, Pet 24 will not accept any liability in the event that there is an interruption to or failure of the service in any way as a result of failures or delays involving the internet, the postal services, telephone lines, computers or other equipment.
7. Liability For Lost And Found Service
The lost and found service is provided free of charge whilst the customer remains on the Pet 24 register. Pet 24 will use its best endeavours to provide this service when a person finding a registered pet contacts us using the number on the tag. We will then use our best endeavours to contact the customer using the contact details that have been provided by the customer and we aim to help the customer to be re-united with their pet as quickly as possible. However, Pet 24 accepts no liability in the event that a customer is not informed for whatever reason that their pet has been found.
8. Fair Use
Pet 24 recognises that pets may go missing at any time, and occasionally pets may go missing more than once. We are happy to provide our services in these situations to try return your pet to you. However, if your pet has been reported missing to us 6 times or more in any 12 month (or shorter) period, we reserve the right to terminate your Pet 24 service immediately and without payment of any refund.
