Terms and conditions

Please read these Terms & Conditions carefully as they are the terms governing your use of the BIAH VetSite service ("the service"). We provide the service only on these Terms & Conditions and if you do not agree to be bound by them you may not use the service. By registering to use the service you will be deemed to accept these Terms & Conditions.

1. Your obligations to us

You agree to provide accurate and complete information to us when registering to use the service. You agree that you will comply with any reasonable instructions or directions issued by us from time to time concerning access to the service and that you will only use the service in a manner consistent with these Terms & Conditions. You agree that you will not use the service for any unlawful purpose or in breach of any applicable law or regulation. In particular you will not use the service to commit any criminal act or any act constituting infringement of any intellectual property right, or to transmit any material that is blasphemous, obscene, indecent or pornographic or which is of a defamatory, offensive, abusive, or menacing character or which may cause annoyance, inconvenience or needless anxiety to any person. We reserve the right to remove any material from the service which we at our sole discretion find objectionable. This may include the posting of any inaccurate information or any information about someone other than you. We reserve the right to end your access to the service at any time if you are in breach of these Terms & Conditions.

You agree to pay us for your use of the service in the manner agreed with us in advance. Our invoices are payable within 30 days of date of invoice.

You agree to indemnify us against all losses (including, without limitation, legal costs) we may incur as a result of any breach by you of these Terms & Conditions.

2. Our obligations to you

We will provide you with the rights to use the service that are provided by the form of the account that you have opened with us.

We will observe all relevant UK data protection legislation in relation to the data you provide to us on registration and will only use it for authorised purposes. We will provide the service to you with reasonable care and skill and will use our reasonable endeavours to maintain continuity of service. However, we cannot guarantee that the service will be continuous or error free. We do not accept liability for any special loss or any indirect or consequential loss of any nature (including without limitation any economic loss or other loss of business, production, revenue, profit, goodwill or anticipated savings), whether arising in contract, tort, negligence, breach of statutory duty or otherwise, and whether or not the possibility of such loss arising has been brought to our attention.

We do not monitor the service but we reserve the right to do so. We take no responsibility for material that has not been introduced by us. You acknowledge that you are solely responsible for the form, content and accuracy of any material introduced by you.

Whilst we take all reasonable care in providing the service, you contract with others through the service at your own risk and we make no representation as to whether you will be satisfied with what others provide to you.

Your Domain Name

Customers who already have a URL or who choose to manage a URL purchased on their behalf by Merial, will be entirely responsible for their management arrangements.

Search Engines

Your GemSite subscription covers hosting, maintenance, design and management of your website. We give advice on how to maximise the visibility of your website on Search Engines. We cannot make any claim that your site will appear on any particular search engine. Some "search engines" are actually directories which will only include your website upon payment of a fee. Your GemSite subscription does not cover this fee.
