How Long Do You Retain Personal Data?
Reggie retains Your Personal Data for only as long as necessary for Our business operations, the provision of Services, archival purposes, and/or to satisfy legal requirements.

Do Not Track Disclosure
Some web browsers may transmit do not track (“DNT”) signals to websites with which the user communicates. To date, there is no industry standard for DNT and users cannot know how a given company responds to a DNT signal they receive from browsers. Reggie is committed to remaining apprised of DNT standards. However, Reggie does not support DNT browser settings and does not currently participate in any DNT frameworks that would allow Reggie to respond to signals or other mechanisms regarding the collection of Your Personal Data.
California residents may request and obtain from Us, once a year, free of charge, a list of third parties, if any, to which We disclosed their Personal Data for direct marketing purposes during the preceding calendar year and the categories of Personal Data shared with those third parties. If You are a California resident and wish to obtain that information, please submit Your request by sending Us an email at email@example.com with “California Privacy Rights” in the subject line.
How Can I Update, Correct, or Delete Personal Data or My User Account?

By terminating Your User Account, You agree that you will not be able to access any information previously contained in Your User Account. You further understand that it may not be technologically possible to remove all of Your Personal Data from Our systems. While We will use reasonable efforts to remove Your Personal Data, the need to back up Our systems to protect information from inadvertent loss means a copy of Your Personal Data may exist in a non-erasable form that will be difficult or impossible for Us to locate or remove.

We use a combination of safeguards to: (i) maintain the security and integrity of your Personal Data; (ii) protect against any threats or hazards to the security or integrity of Your Personal Data; and (iii) protect against unauthorized access to or use of such information in Our possession or control that could result in substantial harm to You.

Terms of Service
What Are The Services?
The Platform is intended to provide a convenient and efficient way for Vets and Owners to connect virtually to address non-emergent health issues in dogs.

Importantly, when you receive a prescription from a Vet through the Services, you have the right to receive a copy of your prescription and to have the prescription filled at a pharmacy of your choice. If you would like a copy of your prescription or you prefer to have your prescription filled by a pharmacy other than Reggie’s third-party pharmacy partner, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

BECAUSE SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, SOME OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

ANY CLAIM ARISING FROM THE USAGE OF THE SERVICES MUST BE BROUGHT WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR OF THE OCCURRENCE OF THE EVENT FROM WHICH THE CLAIM AROSE.
YOU AGREE TO INDEMNIFY, DEFEND AND HOLD HARMLESS REGGIE AND COMPANY REPRESENTATIVES FROM ANY LIABILITY, LOSS, CLAIM, SUIT, DAMAGE, AND EXPENSE (INCLUDING REASONABLE ATTORNEYS' FEES AND EXPENSES) ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF THE SERVICES, YOUR VIOLATION OF THIS AGREEMENT, OR ANY NEGLIGENT OR WRONGFUL CONDUCT BY YOU OR RELATED TO YOUR ACCOUNT BY YOU OR ANY OTHER PERSON ACCESSING THE SERVICES THROUGH YOUR ACCOUNT, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER YOU WERE AWARE OF SUCH USE.

*PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY AS IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS*
Most user concerns can be resolved quickly and to Your satisfaction by emailing Reggie support at email@example.com. In the unlikely event that Our support team is unable to resolve a complaint You may have (or if We have not been able to resolve a dispute with You after attempting to do so informally), including but not limited to any alleged breach of these Terms, You and Reggie agree to resolve the dispute through binding arbitration in the State of Delaware before a single arbitrator, in accordance with the rules and procedures of the American Arbitration Association and the laws of Delaware without reference to its conflict of laws provisions. Arbitration, which is often less expensive, faster, and less formal than a lawsuit in court, uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award, and may, but do not have to, award legal fees, arbitrator’s fees and costs and other costs incurred by the party that does not win the dispute.
Any arbitration under these Terms will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted. Any arbitration will be strictly confidential and neither party will disclose to any person (other than necessary to carry out the arbitration) the existence of the dispute or any aspect of the dispute.
This agreement to arbitrate will not preclude You or Reggie from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration, including without limitation orders to stay a court action, compel arbitration or confirm an arbitral award, from a court of competent jurisdiction. Furthermore, this agreement to arbitrate will not preclude You or Reggie from applying to a court of competent jurisdiction for a temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction, or other interim or conservatory relief, as necessary. THE PROPER VENUE FOR ANY ACTION PERMITTED UNDER THIS SUBSECTION REGARDING “EQUITABLE RELIEF” WILL BE THE FEDERAL AND STATE COURTS LOCATED IN DELAWARE; THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE ANY OBJECTION TO THE VENUE AND PERSONAL JURISDICTION OF SUCH COURTS.
Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate: Reggie may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Platform or infringement of intellectual property rights (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights) without first engaging in the informal dispute-resolution process described above.
YOU MAY ONLY RESOLVE DISPUTES WITH REGGIE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, AND MAY NOT BRING A CLAIM AS A PLAINTIFF OR A CLASS MEMBER IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. CLASS ARBITRATIONS, CLASS ACTIONS, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTIONS, AND CONSOLIDATION WITH OTHER ARBITRATIONS ARE NOT ALLOWED UNDER THESE TERMS OF SERVICE.
Notwithstanding the above, You can decline or “opt out” of the alternative dispute resolution process described above by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org within 30 days of first accepting these Terms and stating that You (first and last name) decline this dispute resolution process.
YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY NOT OPTING-OUT OF THE ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCESS DESCRIBED, YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO JURY TRIAL TO WHICH YOU MAY OTHERWISE BE ENTITLED IN CONNECTION WITH ANY ACTION OR LITIGATION IN ANY WAY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS OF SERVICE.
If You opt-out of the dispute resolution process described in this section, or if any matter is otherwise determined not to be subject to such dispute resolution process, You hereby submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of any state or federal court sitting in the State of Delaware in any legal proceeding arising out of or relating to these Terms. You agree that any and all claims and matters arising out of these Terms, unless subject to the dispute resolution process described above, may be heard and determined in any such court, and You hereby waive any right to object to such filing on grounds of improper venue, forum non-conveniens, or other venue-related grounds, unless such objection asserts that the claim or matter in dispute is subject to determination through the dispute resolution process described above.
General Contract Terms
These Terms shall be governed by the laws of the State of Delaware without reference to its conflict of laws provisions.
You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without Reggie’s prior written consent. Any attempt by You to assign or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be null and of no effect. Reggie may assign or transfer these Terms, at its sole discretion, without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors, and permitted assigns.
Any notices or other communications permitted or required hereunder, including those regarding modifications to these Terms, will be in writing and given: (i) by Reggie via email (in each case to the address that You provide); and/or (ii) by posting to the Platform. For notices made by email, the notice will be effective as of the date the notice is first transmitted. You agree that any notice received from Reggie electronically satisfies any legal requirement that such notice be in writing.

You shall give any notice to Reggie by email to: email@example.com. Notice to Reggie shall be effective upon receipt of notice by Reggie.
NO INADVERTENT WAIVER
The failure of Reggie to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Reggie. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise. If, for any reason, a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
If any provision of these Terms is determined to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the remaining provisions of these Terms remain in full force, provided that the essential terms and conditions remain valid, binding and enforceable and the economic and legal substance of the transactions contemplated by these Terms are materially preserved.
