By using Vetcove Services, you agree to these conditions. Please read them carefully.
Welcome to Vetcove Services Business Solutions, a suite of optional services for sellers.
THIS VETCOVE SERVICES BUSINESS SOLUTIONS AGREEMENT (THE "AGREEMENT") CONTAINS THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS THAT GOVERN YOUR ACCESS TO AND USE OF THE SERVICES AND IS AN AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU OR THE BUSINESS YOU REPRESENT AND VETCOVE. BY REGISTERING FOR OR USING THE SERVICES, YOU (ON BEHALF OF YOURSELF OR THE BUSINESS YOU REPRESENT) AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING THE SERVICE TERMS AND PROGRAM POLICIES THAT APPLY FOR EACH COUNTRY FOR WHICH YOU REGISTER OR ELECT TO USE A SERVICE (IN EACH CASE, THE "ELECTED COUNTRY").
As used in this Agreement, "you" means the applicant (if registering for or using a Service as an individual), or the business employing the applicant (if registering for or using a Service as a business) and any of its Affiliates. Capitalized terms have the meanings given to them in this Agreement. If there is a conflict among terms in this Agreement, the Program Policies will prevail over any applicable Service Terms and the General Terms, and the applicable Service Terms will prevail over the General Terms.
To begin the enrollment process, you must complete the registration process for one or more of the Services. Use of the Services is limited to parties that can lawfully enter into and form contracts under applicable law (for example, the Elected Country may not allow minors to use the Services). As part of the application, you must provide us with your (or your business') legal name, address, phone number and e-mail address. We may at any time cease providing any or all of the Services at our sole discretion and without notice.
Fee details are described in the applicable Service Terms and Program Policies. You are responsible for all of your expenses in connection with this Agreement. To use a Service, you must provide us with valid credit card information from a credit card or credit cards acceptable by Vetcove ("Your Credit Card") as well as valid bank account information for a bank account or bank accounts acceptable by Vetcove (conditions for acceptance may be modified or discontinued by us at any time without notice) ("Your Bank Account"). You will use only a name you are authorized to use in connection with a Service and will update all of the information you provide to us in connection with the Services as necessary to ensure that it at all times remains accurate, complete and valid. You authorize us (and will provide us documentation evidencing your authorization upon our request) to verify your information (including any updated information), to obtain credit reports about you from time to time, to obtain credit authorizations from the issuer of Your Credit Card, and to charge Your Credit Card or debit Your Bank Account for any sums payable by you to us (in reimbursement or otherwise). All payments to you will be remitted to Your Bank Account through a banking network or by other means specified by us.
For any amounts you owe us, we may (a) charge Your Credit Card or any other payment instrument you provide to us; (b) offset any amounts that are payable by you to us (in reimbursement or otherwise) against any payments we may make to you; (c) invoice you for amounts due to us, in which case you will pay the invoiced amounts upon receipt; (d) reverse any credits to Your Bank Account; or (e) collect payment or reimbursement from you by any other lawful means. Except as provided otherwise, all amounts contemplated in this Agreement will be expressed and displayed in the Local Currency, and all payments contemplated by this Agreement will be made in the Local Currency. If we discover erroneous or duplicate transactions, then we reserve the right to seek reimbursement from you by deducting from future payments owed to you, charging Your Credit Card, or seeking such reimbursement from you by any other lawful means.
IF WE DETERMINE THAT YOUR ACTIONS OR PERFORMANCE MAY RESULT IN RETURNS, CHARGEBACKS, CLAIMS, DISPUTES, OR OTHER RISKS, THEN WE MAY IN OUR SOLE DISCRETION WITHHOLD ANY PAYMENTS TO YOU UNTIL THE COMPLETION OF ANY RELATED INVESTIGATION. IF WE DETERMINE THAT YOUR ACCOUNT HAS BEEN USED TO ENGAGE IN DECEPTIVE, FRAUDULENT, OR ILLEGAL ACTIVITY, THEN WE MAY IN OUR SOLE DISCRETION PERMANENTLY WITHHOLD ANY PAYMENTS.
As a security measure, we may, but are not required to, impose transaction limits on some or all customers and sellers relating to the value of any transaction or disbursement, the cumulative value of all transactions or disbursements during a period of time, or the number of transactions per day or other period of time. We will not be liable to you: (i) if we do not proceed with a transaction or disbursement that would exceed any limit established by us for a security reason, or (ii) if we permit a customer to withdraw from a transaction because a Vetcove Site or Service is unavailable following the commencement of a transaction.
The term of this Agreement will start on the date of your completed registration for or use of a Service, whichever occurs first, and continue until terminated by us or you as provided in this Agreement (the "Term"). We may terminate or suspend this Agreement or any Service for any reason at any time by notice to you. You may terminate this Agreement or any Service or the Promotion Site for any reason at any time by the means then specified by Vetcove. Termination or suspension of a Service will not terminate or suspend any other Service unless explicitly provided. Upon termination, all rights and obligations of the parties under this Agreement will terminate, except that Sections 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 14, 15, 16 and 18 will survive termination. Any terms that expressly survive according to the applicable Service Terms will also survive termination.
You grant us a royalty-free, non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable right and license to use, reproduce, perform, display, distribute, adapt, modify, re-format, create derivative works of, and otherwise commercially or non-commercially exploit in any manner, any and all of Your Materials, and to sublicense the foregoing rights to our Affiliates and operators of Vetcove Associated Properties; provided, however, that we will not alter any of Your Trademarks from the form provided by you (except to re-size trademarks to the extent necessary for presentation, so long as the relative proportions of such trademarks remain the same) and will comply with your removal requests as to specific uses of Your Trademarks (provided you are unable to do so using standard functionality made available to you via the applicable Vetcove Site or Service); provided further, however, that nothing in this Agreement will prevent or impair our right to use Your Materials without your consent to the extent that such use is allowable without a license from you or your Affiliates under applicable law (e.g., fair use under United States copyright law, referential use under trademark law, or valid license from a third party).
You represent and warrant to us that: (a) if you are a business, you are duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the Laws of the country in which your business is registered and that you are registering for the Service(s) within such country; (b) you have all requisite right, power and authority to enter into this Agreement, perform your obligations, and grant the rights, licenses and authorizations in this Agreement; (c) any information provided or made available by you or your Affiliates to Vetcove or its Affiliates is at all times accurate and complete; and (d) you and all of your subcontractors, agents and suppliers will comply with all applicable Laws in your performance of your obligations and exercise of your rights under this Agreement.
You release us and agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless us, our Affiliates, and our and their respective officers, directors, employees, representatives and agents against any claim, loss, damage, settlement, cost, expense or other liability (including, without limitation, attorneys' fees) (each, a "Claim") arising from or related to: (a) your actual or alleged breach of any obligations in this Agreement; (b) any of Your Sales Channels other tha Vetcove Sites and Vetcove Associated Properties, Your Products (including their offer, sale, performance and fulfillment), Your Materials, any actual or alleged infringement of any Intellectual Property Rights by any of the foregoing, and any personal injury, death or property damage related thereto; (c) Your Personnel (including any act or omission of Your Personnel or any Claim brought or directed by Your Personnel); or (d) Your Taxes. You will use counsel reasonably satisfactory to us to defend each indemnified Claim. If at any time we reasonably determine that any indemnified Claim might adversely affect us, we may take control of the defense at our expense. You may not consent to the entry of any judgment or enter into any settlement of a Claim without our prior written consent, which may not be unreasonably withheld.
a. THE VETCOVE SITES AND THE SERVICES, INCLUDING ALL CONTENT, SOFTWARE, FUNCTIONS, MATERIALS AND INFORMATION MADE AVAILABLE ON OR PROVIDED IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICES, ARE PROVIDED "AS-IS." AS A USER OF THE SERVICES, YOU USE THE VETCOVE SITES, THE SERVICES AND SELLER CENTRAL AT YOUR OWN RISK. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW, WE AND OUR AFFILIATES DISCLAIM: (i) ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES REGARDING THIS AGREEMENT, THE SERVICES OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED BY THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT; (ii) IMPLIED WARRANTIES ARISING OUT OF COURSE OF DEALING, COURSE OF PERFORMANCE OR USAGE OF TRADE; AND (iii) ANY OBLIGATION, LIABILITY, RIGHT, CLAIM OR REMEDY IN TORT, WHETHER OR NOT ARISING FROM OUR NEGLIGENCE. WE DO NOT WARRANT THAT THE FUNCTIONS CONTAINED IN THE VETCOVE SITES AND THE SERVICES WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS OR BE AVAILABLE, TIMELY, SECURE, UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR FREE, AND WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY SERVICE INTERRUPTIONS, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO SYSTEM FAILURES OR OTHER INTERRUPTIONS THAT MAY AFFECT THE RECEIPT, PROCESSING, ACCEPTANCE, COMPLETION OR SETTLEMENT OF ANY TRANSACTIONS.
b. BECAUSE VETCOVE IS NOT INVOLVED IN TRANSACTIONS BETWEEN CUSTOMERS AND SELLERS OR OTHER PARTICIPANT DEALINGS, IF A DISPUTE ARISES BETWEEN ONE OR MORE PARTICIPANTS, EACH PARTICIPANT RELEASES VETCOVE (AND ITS AGENTS AND EMPLOYEES) FROM CLAIMS, DEMANDS, AND DAMAGES (ACTUAL AND CONSEQUENTIAL) OF EVERY KIND AND NATURE, KNOWN AND UNKNOWN, SUSPECTED AND UNSUSPECTED, DISCLOSED AND UNDISCLOSED, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH SUCH DISPUTES.
WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, WARRANTY, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE, PRODUCT LIABILITY OR OTHER THEORY) OR OTHERWISE) TO YOU OR ANY OTHER PERSON FOR COST OF COVER, RECOVERY OR RECOUPMENT OF ANY INVESTMENT MADE BY YOU OR YOUR AFFILIATES IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT, OR FOR ANY LOSS OF PROFIT, REVENUE, BUSINESS, OR DATA OR PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT, EVEN IF VETCOVE HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF THOSE COSTS OR DAMAGES. FURTHER, OUR AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED WILL NOT EXCEED AT ANY TIME THE TOTAL AMOUNTS DURING THE PRIOR SIX MONTH PERIOD PAID BY YOU TO VETCOVE IN CONNECTION WITH THE PARTICULAR SERVICE GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM.
If the gross proceeds from Your Transactions exceed the applicable Insurance Threshold during each month over any period of three (3) consecutive months, or otherwise if requested by us, then within thirty (30) days thereafter, you will maintain at your expense throughout the remainder of the Term for each applicable Elected Country commercial general, umbrella or excess liability insurance with the Insurance Limits per occurrence and in aggregate covering liabilities caused by or occurring in conjunction with the operation of your business, including products, products/completed operations and bodily injury, with policy(ies) naming Vetcove and its assignees as additional insureds. At our request, you will provide to us certificates of insurance for the coverage to the following address: c/o Vetcove, P.O. Box 81226, Seattle, WA 98108-1226, Attention: Risk Management.
As between the parties, you will be responsible for the collection, reporting and payment of any and all of Your Taxes, except to the extent Vetcove expressly agrees to receive taxes or other transaction-based charges in connection with tax calculation services made available by Vetcove and used by you. You agree to and will comply with the Tax Policies. All fees payable by you to Vetcove under this Agreement or the applicable Service Terms are exclusive of any applicable taxes, and you will be responsible for paying Vetcove any of Your Taxes imposed on such fees.
During the course of your use of the Services, you may receive information relating to us or to the Services, including but not limited to Vetcove Transaction Information, that is not known to the general public ("Confidential Information"). You agree that: (a) all Confidential Information will remain Vetcove's exclusive property; (b) you will use Confidential Information only as is reasonably necessary for your participation in the Services; (c) you will not otherwise disclose Confidential Information to any other Person; and (d) you will take all reasonable measures to protect the Confidential Information against any use or disclosure that is not expressly permitted in this Agreement. You may not issue any press release or make any public statement related to the Services, or use our name, trademarks or logo, in any way (including in promotional material) without our advance written permission, or misrepresent or embellish the relationship between us in any way.
We will not be liable for any delay or failure to perform any of our obligations under this Agreement by reasons, events or other matters beyond our reasonable control.
You will not, and will cause your Affiliates not to, directly or indirectly: (a) disclose any Vetcove Transaction Information (except that you may disclose that information solely as necessary for you to perform your obligations under this Agreement if you ensure that every recipient uses the information only for that purpose and complies with the restrictions applicable to you related to that information); (b) use any Vetcove Transaction Information for any marketing or promotional purposes whatsoever, or otherwise in any way inconsistent with our or your privacy policies or applicable Law; (c) contact a Person that has ordered Your Product with the intent to collect any amounts in connection therewith or to influence that Person to make an alternative transaction; (d) disparage us, our Affiliates, or any of their or our respective products or services or any customer; or (e) target communications of any kind on the basis of the intended recipient being a Vetcove Site user. In addition, you may only use tools and methods that we designate to communicate with Vetcove Site users regarding Your Transactions, including for the purpose of scheduling, communicating, or cancelling the fulfillment of Your Products. The terms of this Section 14 do not prevent you from using other information that you acquire without reference to Vetcove Transaction Information for any purpose, even if that information is identical to Vetcove Transaction Information, provided that you do not target communications on the basis of the intended recipient being a Vetcove Site user.
If you or any of your Affiliates elect to provide or make available suggestions, comments, ideas, improvements, or other feedback or materials to us in connection with or related to any Vetcove Site or Service (including any related Technology), we will be free to use, disclose, reproduce, modify, license, transfer and otherwise distribute, and exploit any of the foregoing information or materials in any manner. In order to cooperate with governmental requests, to protect our systems and customers, or to ensure the integrity and operation of our business and systems, we may access and disclose any information we consider necessary or appropriate, including but not limited to user contact details, IP addresses and traffic information, usage history and posted content.
We may amend any of the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement at any time and at our sole discretion. Any changes will be effective upon the posting of such changes on the Seller Portal or on the applicable Vetcove Site, and you are responsible for reviewing these locations and informing yourself of all applicable changes or notices. All notice of changes to the General Terms and the Service Terms will be posted for at least 30 days. Changes to Program Policies may be made without notice to you. You should refer regularly to the Seller Portal to review the current Agreement (including the Service Terms and Program Policies) and to be sure that the items you offer can be offered via the applicable Service. YOUR CONTINUED USE OF A SERVICE AFTER VETCOVE'S POSTING OF ANY CHANGES WILL CONSTITUTE YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF SUCH CHANGES OR MODIFICATIONS.
Any password we provide to you may be used only during the Term to access the Seller Portal (or other tools we provide) to use the Services, electronically accept Your Transactions, and review your completed transactions. You are solely responsible for maintaining the security of your password. You may not disclose your password to any third party (other than third parties authorized by you to use your account in accordance with this Agreement) and are solely responsible for any use of or action taken under your password. If your password is compromised, you must immediately change your password.
The Governing Laws will govern this Agreement, without reference to rules governing choice of laws or the Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. If the Elected Country is Japan, Vetcove and you both consent that any dispute with Vetcove or its Affiliates or claim relating in any way to your use of the Services or this Agreement as it relates to your use of the Services in Japan will be adjudicated in the Governing Courts, and you consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the Governing Courts. If the Elected Country is the United States, Canada, or Mexico, Vetcove and you both consent that any dispute with Vetcove or its Affiliates or claim relating in any way to this Agreement or your use of the Services will be resolved by binding arbitration as described in this paragraph, rather than in court, except that (i) you may assert claims in a small claims court that is a Governing Court if your claims qualify and (ii) you or we may bring suit in the Governing Courts, submitting to the jurisdiction of the Governing Courts and waiving our respective rights to any other jurisdiction, to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of this Agreement as a court would. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent, CSC Services of Nevada, Inc., 2215-B Renaissance Drive, Las Vegas, NV 89119. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. We will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, Vetcove will not seek attorneys' fees and costs from you in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location. Vetcove and you each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration Vetcove and you each waive any right to a jury trial.
You may not assign this Agreement, by operation of law or otherwise, without our prior written consent. Subject to that restriction, this Agreement will be binding on, inure to, and be enforceable against the parties and their respective successors and assigns. We may perform any of our obligations or exercise any of our rights under this Agreement through one or more of our Affiliates. Our failure to enforce your strict performance of any provision of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of our right to enforce such provision or any other provision of this Agreement subsequently.
We have the right in our sole discretion to determine the content, appearance, design, functionality and all other aspects of the Services, including by redesigning, modifying, removing, or restricting access to any of them. Because Vetcove is not your agent (except for the limited purpose set out in the Transaction Processing Service Terms (if the Elected Country for a Service is the United States)), or the customer’s agent for any purpose, Vetcove will not act as either party's agent in connection with resolving any disputes between participants related to or arising out of any transaction.
We will send all notices and other communications regarding this Agreement to you at the e-mail addresses you designated for notifications and updates in your program application or within the Seller Portal, or by any other means then specified by Vetcove. We may also communicate with you electronically and in other media, and you consent to such communications regardless of any "E-mail Preferences" (or similar preferences or requests) you may have indicated on the applicable Vetcove Site, on the Seller Portal, or by any other means. You may change your e-mail addresses and certain other information in the Seller Portal. You will ensure that all of your information is up to date and accurate at all times. You must send all notices and other communications relating to Vetcove to our Merchant Services Team by using the Contact Us form.
This Agreement incorporates and you accept the applicable Service Terms and Program Policies, which Vetcove may modify from time to time. If any provision of this Agreement is deemed unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision will be deemed severable from these terms and conditions and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. This Agreement represents the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the Services and related subject matter and supersedes any previous or contemporaneous oral or written agreements and understandings.

You are also responsible for any non-conformity or defect in, or any public or private recall of, any of Your Products or other products provided in connection with Your Products. You will notify us promptly as soon as you have knowledge of any public or private recalls of Your Products or other products provided in connection with Your Products.
S-3.2 A-to-z Guarantee and Chargebacks.
If we inform you that we have received a claim under the "A-to-z Guarantee" offered on a particular Vetcove Site, or any chargeback or other dispute, concerning one of Your Transactions, you will deliver to us in a format and manner we specify: (a) proof of fulfillment of Your Product(s) (as applicable); (b) the applicable Vetcove order identification number; (c) a description of Your Product(s) (as applicable); and (d) any terms provided by you or us and displayed on the Vetcove Site at the time of the transaction in question. If you fail to comply with the prior sentence, or if the claim, chargeback, or dispute is not caused by: (i) credit card fraud for which we are responsible under Section S-1.4; or (ii) our failure to make your Order Information available as the same was received by us or resulting from address verification, then you will promptly reimburse us in accordance with the Service Fee Payments section of this Agreement for the amount of the customer purchase (including the Purchase Price, all associated shipping and handling charges and all taxes, but excluding any associated Referral Fees retained and not subject to refund by Vetcove) and all associated credit card association, bank or other payment processing, re-presentment and/or penalty fees associated with the original purchase and any chargeback or refund, in each case to the extent paid or payable by us or our Affiliates. If the Elected Country is Japan and we receive a claim under the "A-to-z Guarantee" concerning one of Your Transactions and we determine that we are responsible for that claim then we will purchase the returned products from the customer.
Subject to this Section S-4, you are free to determine which of Your Products you wish to offer on a particular Vetcove Site. You will maintain parity between the products you offer through Your Sales Channels and the products you list on any Vetcove Site by ensuring that : (a) the Purchase Price and every other term of offer or sale of Your Product (including associated shipping and handling charges, Shipment Information, any "low price" guarantee, rebate or discount, any free or discounted products or other benefit available as a result of purchasing one or more other products, and terms of applicable cancellation, return and refund policies) is at least as favorable to Vetcove Site users as the most favorable terms upon which a product is offered or sold via Your Sales Channels (excluding consideration of Excluded Offers); (b) customer service for Your Products is at least as responsive and available and offers at least the same level of support as the most favorable customer services offered in connection with any of Your Sales Channels (this requirement does not apply to customer service for payment-related issues on Your Transactions, which we will provide); and (c) the Content, product and service information and other information under Section S-1.1 regarding Your Products that you provide to us is of at least the same level of quality as the highest quality information displayed or used in Your Sales Channels. If you become aware of any non-compliance with (a) above, you will promptly compensate adversely affected customers by making appropriate refunds to them in accordance with Section S-2.2. For Vetcove-Fulfilled Products, if the shipping and handling charges associated with the sale and fulfillment of any of Your Products offered on a Vetcove Site are included (and not separately stated) in the item price listed for Your Product (collectively a "Shipping Inclusive Purchase Price"), then the parity obligation in (a) above will be satisfied if the Shipping Inclusive Purchase Price and each other term of offer or sale for the product on the Vetcove Site are at least as favorable to Vetcove Site users as the purchase price and each other term of offer or sale for the product (including any and all separately stated shipping and handling charges) pursuant to which the product or service is offered or sold via any of Your Sales Channels.
You will pay us: (a) the applicable Referral Fees; (b) any applicable Variable Closing Fee; (c) the non-refundable Selling on Vetcove Subscription Fee in advance each month; and (d) any other applicable fees described in this Agreement (including any applicable Program Policies). "Selling on Vetcove Subscription Fee" means the fee specified as such on the Selling on Vetcove Fee Schedule for the applicable Vetcove Site at the time such fee is payable. With respect to each of Your Transactions: (i) "Sales Proceeds" has the meaning set out in this Agreement; (ii) "Variable Closing Fee" means the applicable fee, if any, as specified on the Variable Closing Fee Schedule for the applicable Vetcove Site; and (iii) "Referral Fee" means the applicable fee based on the Sales Proceeds from Your Transaction through the applicable Vetcove Site specified on the Selling on Vetcove Fee Schedule for that Vetcove Site at the time of Your Transaction, based on the categorization by Vetcove of the type of product that is the subject of Your Transaction; provided, however, that Sales Proceeds will not include any shipping charges set by us in each of the following two cases: (y) in the case of Your Transactions that consist solely of products fulfilled using Fulfillment by Vetcove; and (z) in the case of Media Products.
Except as otherwise stated in this Agreement, we will remit to you on a bi-weekly (14 day) (or at our option, more frequent) basis, which may vary for each Elected Country, any Sales Proceeds received by us or our Affiliates but not previously remitted to you as of the date that is two (2) business days prior to the date of remittance (the "Remittance Calculation Date") (which you will accept as payment in full for Your Transactions), less: (a) the Referral Fees; (b) the applicable Variable Closing Fee; (c) any Selling on Vetcove Subscription Fees; and (d) any other applicable fees described in this Agreement (including any applicable Program Policies). When you either initially provide or later change Your Bank Account information, the Remittance Calculation Date may be deferred by up to 14 days. You will not have the ability to initiate or cause payments to be remitted to you. For sellers that registered after October 30, 2011 and are on the Individual selling plan, the remittance amount will not include Sales Proceeds from the 14-day period before the date of remittance. If you refund money to a customer in connection with one of Your Transactions, and the refund is routed through us (or our Affiliate), on the next available Remittance Calculation Date we will refund to you the amount of the Referral Fee paid by you to us attributable to the amount of the customer refund (including refunded taxes and customs duties only to the extent specified in the applicable Tax Policies), less the Refund Administration Fee for each of Your Products refunded that is not a BMVD Product, which amount we may retain as an administrative fee; provided, however, that in the case of a complete refund of Sales Proceeds for a Media Product, we will refund to you the full amount of any Variable Closing Fee paid by you to us (and in the case of a partial refund of Sales Proceeds for a Media Product, we will not refund to you any portion of any Variable Closing Fee paid by you to us). We will remit any amounts to be refunded by us pursuant to this subsection from time to time together with the next remittance to be made by us to you. “Refund Administration Fee” means the applicable fee described on the Refund Administration Fee Schedule for the applicable Vetcove Site.
We have the right in our sole discretion to determine the content, appearance, design, functionality and all other aspects of the Vetcove Sites, including by redesigning, modifying, removing or restricting access to any of them, and by suspending, prohibiting or removing any listing.
Upon termination of these Selling on Vetcove Service Terms in connection with a particular Vetcove Site, all rights and obligations of the Parties under these Selling on Vetcove Service Terms with regard to such Vetcove Site will be extinguished, except that the rights and obligations of the Parties with respect to Your Transactions occurring during the Term will survive the termination or expiration of the Term.

Stripe provides the services described in these Transaction Processing Service Terms and the related services described in Sections S-1.4, S-2.2, S-6, W-3.2, W-3.3, W-3.4, W-6.3.2, W-6.3.3, W-7.5, and F-8.3 of the Agreement (collectively, the "Transaction Processing Services").

Stripe will remit funds to you in accordance with Sections S-6 and W-6.3.2 of the Agreement and these Transaction Processing Service Terms. Stripe' obligation to remit funds collected by it on your behalf is limited to funds that have actually been received by Stripe less amounts owed to Vetcove, subject to chargeback or reversal or withheld for anticipated claims in accordance with this Agreement. Without limiting Vetcove's rights to collect any amounts you owe, including as described in Section 2 of the General Terms of this Agreement, Stripe' receipt of Sales Proceeds discharges your obligation to pay applicable fees and other amounts under this Agreement to the extent the Sales Proceeds equal or exceed the fees and other amounts you owe and the Sales Proceeds are applied to the payment of those fees and amounts.
Your Sales Proceeds will be held in an account with Stripe (a "Seller Account") and will represent an unsecured claim against Stripe. Your Sales Proceeds are not insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. Prior to disbursing funds to you, Stripe may combine Sales Proceeds held with the funds of other users of the Services, invest them, or use them for other purposes permitted by applicable Laws. You will not receive interest or any other earnings on any Sale Proceeds. To the extent required by applicable Laws, Stripe will not use any funds held on your behalf for its corporate purposes, will not voluntarily make such funds available to its creditors in the event of bankruptcy or for any other purpose, and will not knowingly permit its creditors to attach such funds.
We may at any time require you to provide any financial, business or personal information we request to verify your identity. You authorize us to obtain from time to time consumer credit reports to establish or update your Seller Account or in the event of a dispute relating to this Agreement or the activity under your Seller Account. You agree to update all Seller Account information promptly upon any change. The Stripe Privacy Notice applies to your use of the Transaction Processing Services.
If there is no activity (as determined by us) in connection with your Seller Account for the period of time set forth in applicable unclaimed property laws and we hold Sales Proceeds on your behalf, we will notify you by means designated by us and provide you the option of keeping your Seller Account open and maintaining the Sales Proceeds in your Seller Account. If you do not respond to our notice(s) within the time period we specify, we will send the Sales Proceeds in your Seller Account to your state of residency, as determined by us based on the information in your Seller Account. If we are unable to determine your state of residency or your Seller Account is associated with a foreign country, your funds may be sent to the State of Delaware.
