We undertake to conduct ourselves and our business to the highest moral and ethical standards and we expect our users to do the same. These Terms and Conditions describe the way in which we conduct ourselves with you, and they govern the way in which you conduct yourself when using our service.

In using this service you commit to:
Take a deep breath and count (slowly) to ten before writing a negative review about any business. If you must write a negative review, keep it objective and fair, and never get personal. Give any business the opportunity to resolve any issue offline before giving a negative review;
If you’ve had a bad experience with a business and they subsequently make amends, be generous in your review of them – no-one gets it right 100% of the time, but when they fix something that’s broken they truly deserve credit;
If you see a spam comment take a moment to clear it up by making a correction, or if necessary reporting it;
In providing this service we commit to:
You don’t need to register with DogServ to use the basic service, but for faster updates and more advanced features, you do. When you register with us you authorize us to contact you from time to time to provide you with updates and news about the service. We will not spam you.
The dogserv.com Service is a freely available National Business Listing Database and business directory. It’s built and maintained by everyone, for everyone, and it’s operated on a platform produced and owned by DogServ.cm.
The Service is provided as seen, without any warranties specific or implied. DogServ, nor any of its associated companies, cannot guarantee and can take no responsibility for, the accuracy of any listings. If you see inaccuracies you may use our tools to make any corrections.
Obscene or illegal content
DogServ reserves the right to remove any obscene, illegal, or otherwise offensive content.
Withdrawal of service
DogServ reserves the right to withdraw the Service at any time from any or all users.
Provision of paid services no refunds
DogServ’s responsibilities in relation to paid-for services are fulfilled in total at the moment of payment; DogServ is a self-service platform and does not provide subsequent refunds on paid services.
Transfer of claims and disputes
Where a business listing claim is transferred to another member following a claim dispute, the remaining period of the claim, any associated paid-for services, and any sums paid to DogServ are forfeited in favor of the new claimant.
In short, you should not falsely claim a business listing because if it is later transferred to its rightful claimant you will not be entitled to any refund and they will inherit the remainder of the claim period and any associated promotions.

Brand names and trademarks that feature in business listings are used only in the context of correctly identifying those brand names, trade marks, or owners to which they relate.
They are owned by their respective owners and DogServ claims no association with any of them. All data and information present and entered into the Service becomes and remains the property of DogServ.
