You acknowledge and agree that PetFlow® will not obtain any additional authorization from you for these recurring payments.

Survival of the Agreement.
Notwithstanding any other provisions of the Agreement, or any general legal principles to the contrary, any provision of the Agreement that imposes or contemplates continuing obligations on a party will survive the expiration or termination of the Agreement.
Dispute Resolution Provisions.
The Agreement shall be treated as though it were executed and performed in the State of New York and shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York (without regard to conflict of law principles). The parties hereby agree to arbitrate all claims that may arise under the Agreement. Without limiting the foregoing, should a dispute arise between the parties including, without limitation, any matter concerning, the terms and conditions of the Agreement or the breach of same by any party hereto: (a) the parties agree to submit their dispute for resolution by arbitration before a reputable arbitration organization as mutually agreed upon by the parties in New York, New York, in accordance with the then current Commercial Arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"); and (b) you agree to first commence a formal dispute proceeding by completing and submitting an Initial Dispute Notice which can be found here. We may choose to provide you with a final written settlement offer after receiving your Initial Dispute Notice ("Final Settlement Offer"). If we provide you with a Final Settlement Offer and you do not accept it, or we cannot otherwise satisfactorily resolve your dispute, you can submit your dispute for resolution by arbitration by the AAA, in your county of residence, by filing a separate Demand for Arbitration, which is available here. For claims of Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000.00) or less, you can choose whether the arbitration proceeds in person, by telephone or based only on submissions. If the arbitrator awards you relief that is greater than our Final Settlement Offer, then we will pay all filing, administration and arbitrator fees associated with the arbitration and, if you retained an attorney to represent you in connection with the arbitration, we will reimburse any reasonable attorneys' fees that your attorney accrued for investigating, preparing and pursuing the claim in arbitration. Any award rendered shall be final and conclusive to the parties and a judgment thereon may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Although we may have a right to an award of attorneys' fees and expenses if we prevail in arbitration, we will not seek such an award from you unless the arbitrator determines that your claim was frivolous.
To the extent permitted by law, you agree that you will not bring, join or participate in any class action lawsuit as to any claim, dispute or controversy that you may have against PetFlow® and/or its employees, officers, directors, members, representatives and/or assigns. You agree to the entry of injunctive relief to stop such a lawsuit or to remove you as a participant in the suit. You agree to pay the attorney's fees and court costs that PetFlow® incurs in seeking such relief. This provision preventing you from bringing, joining or participating in class action lawsuits: (A) does not constitute a waiver of any of your rights or remedies to pursue a claim individually and not as a class action in binding arbitration as provided above; and (B) is an independent agreement. You may opt-out of these dispute resolution provisions by providing written notice of your decision within thirty (30) days of the date that you first access the Site.
If any part of the Agreement shall be deemed invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, the parties agree that the applicable court of law or arbitration tribunal should endeavor to give effect to the parties' intentions as reflected in the provision, and the unenforceable condition shall be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining condition. From time to time PetFlow® may offer special promotional offers which may or may not apply to your PetFlow® account. You agree to be bound by any additional terms and conditions for these special offers. The parties do not intend that any agency or partnership relationship be created through operation of the Agreement. PetFlow® may, with or without notice to you and in its sole discretion, assign the Agreement and/or any of its rights or delegate its duties under the Agreement to any third party for any purpose. The Agreement, may not however, be assigned by you, and you may not delegate your duties under it. Headings are for reference purposes only and in no way define, limit, construe or describe the scope or extent of such section. The failure of PetFlow® to act with respect to a breach by you or others does not waive its right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches. Except as otherwise expressly provided in the Agreement, there shall be no third-party beneficiaries to the Agreement.
All percentage-based coupons will be capped by a Thirty-Five Dollar ($35.00) maximum value per transaction. PetFlow® reserves the right to withdraw or terminate coupons at any time.

- Your Friend must complete a purchase of Thirty Dollars ($30.00) or more (excluding all fees including, but not limited to, taxes, shipping, handling and/or other third party fees) for Products by and through the Site, by clicking on the unique Refer-a-Friend Program link located in the email sent by you to your Friend (a “Qualified Purchase”) by and through the Refer-a-Friend Program interface (“Referral Link”). If your Friend makes a purchase on our Site through any method other than directly through the Referral Link, such purchase will NOT count as a Qualified Purchase and you will not earn any Referral Credit in connection with such purchase.
- Purchases of gift certificates do NOT count as Qualified Purchases.
- Your Friend must complete their Qualified Purchase within thirty (30) days of receiving the Refer-a-Friend Program email containing your Referral Link.
- Your Friend may not return the Qualified Purchase. Where your Friend returns a Qualified Purchase, you will not earn any Referral Credit in connection with such purchase.
- Your Friend must be a new customer, i.e. they have not previously purchased any Products by and through the Site, nor can she/he have an account or registration with us under any email address or alias. Such status will be determined in PetFlow’s® sole discretion. You may only receive one (1) Qualified Referral per Friend; in other words, you are only eligible for one (1) Referral Credit per Friend, and so additional/repeat purchases made by your Friend do not qualify you for additional Referral Credit(s).
Referral Credits. For each Qualified Purchase, your Friend will receive her/his Referral Credit discount online at the time of purchase. Subsequently, for each verified Qualified Referral, you will be emailed a notification that you have one (1) Referral Credit valid for future purchases on the Site. Referral Credit(s) will appear in your Site account with us within twenty-four (24) hours after your Friend makes a Qualified Purchase; provided, that such Referral Credit(s) remain subject to forfeiture where your Friend returns the Products associated with the Qualified Purchase. Some important things about your Referral Credit(s):
- Referral Credits are non-transferable and may not be sold, assigned, or given to anyone else, and may not be redeemed for cash.
- Referral Credits are valid for one-time use only and are non-refundable. For instance, if you use a Referral Credit to purchase an item from the Site and you later return that item, the amount of the Referral Credit used by you to pay for the item will be deducted from the total amount of your refund.
- Referral Credit(s) do not expire.
Fraudulent Activity. Please respect the Refer-a-Friend Program by only referring real individuals who meet our requirements. PetFlow® reserves the right to void any Referral Credits and take any action we deem reasonably necessary if we suspect that you have engaged in any fraud. For instance, having multiple accounts with alternate email addresses or identities in order to add yourself as a Friend, or refer the same Friend via multiple accounts, is a violation of the Refer-a-Friend Program rules, and may result in us taking action, including terminating your PetFlow account and/or forfeiture of any and all Referral Credits in your account.
Marketing Emails By participating in this Program and referring a Friend, you are agreeing to receive our marketing emails to the email address you provide to us. If you wish to stop receiving these emails at any time, please opt out using the link at the bottom of the relevant email or by writing to [email protected]
No Spam. Any distribution of your Referral Link that could constitute unsolicited commercial email or "spam" under any applicable law or regulation, or any posting of your Referral Link on any website, coupon site or other forum is expressly prohibited and will be grounds for immediate termination of your account and exclusion from PetFlow’s® Refer-a-Friend Program. Without limiting the foregoing, your activities in connection with generating referrals (“Referral Activities”), and the messages included in any e-mails sent by you in connection with same (“Creative”), must: (a) comply with all applicable federal and state laws, rules and regulations including, without limitation, the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003, as amended and the Federal Trade Commission’s report entitled, “Protecting Consumer Privacy in an Era of Rapid Change: Recommendations for Businesses and Policymakers,” as amended; (b) not infringe upon any third party intellectual property or other proprietary rights; (c) include prominent disclosures that you stand to gain Referral Credits where the prospective referrals make Qualified Purchases; and (d) comply with the Federal Trade Commission Guidelines Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials (“FTC Guidelines”).
Right to Cancel Program or Change Terms. We reserve the right to modify or amend the Refer-a-Friend Program, or any part of such, at any time and for any reason. We may also deny participation in the Refer-a-Friend Program to you at any time if we have any reason to believe that you are not in compliance with the Agreement and/or the terms of the Refer-a-Friend Program.
