Effective as of August 15, 2014

This document (the "Agreement") is a legally binding agreement between you and EQUITAG, LLC, a company registered in the USA ("EQUITAG") that governs your use of EQUITAG's software application (the "EQUITAG Software Application"), available at the EQUITAG Website (as defined in the EQUITAG Privacy Policy).

Contract Formation

By creating an EQUITAG account you confirm that you are 18 years of age or more, or that you are 14 years of age or more and that you have received your parent's or guardian's consent to enter into this Agreement, that any registration information that you submit to EQUITAG is true, accurate and complete, that you will update such information in order to keep it current, and that you agree to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the EQUITAG Privacy Policy. You also hereby agree to termination of any previous EQUITAG Terms and Conditions agreed with EQUITAG,LLC, a company registered in the USA ("EQUITAG LLC") (if applicable).

Changes to the Agreement

EQUITAG may make changes to this Agreement at its sole discretion. Any material changes will be communicated to you and your acceptance of and/or continued use of the EQUITAG Software Application after such notification of changes to this Agreement will constitute your acceptance of such changes.

Grant of license

You are granted a limited, non-exclusive, revocable license to make use of the EQUITAG Software Application. You do not have a right to transfer or sublicense your rights under this Agreement. Third party components included in the EQUITAG Software Application are licensed to you either under this Agreement, or under the relevant third party component license terms, as applicable, and published in the help section of the EQUITAG Software Application.

Fees and Services for Online Access

EQUITAG offers a range of products, each of which is accompanied by a subscription plan. All EQUITAG plans are prepaid plans or free usage upon registration. Upon registration for free usage, credit card information is not required. All paid plans, including subscriptions are available on annual or monthly pre-paid, non-refundable contracts. Contracts denoted as “perpetual” will renew annually as a free usage plan. All service upgrades are effective immediately, while downgrades are effective as of the next renewal date. EQUITAG may change its fee structure and/or provide an upgrade service at any time with notice, in which case new rates will be in effect as of the next renewal period.

Returns and Exchanges

EQUITAG ID tags

Unopened or damage-free ID tags (where "damage-free" is defined as ID tags that have never been used [i.e., affixed to animal or object] and all protective coating remains in tact) that have been damaged or printed incorrectly may be exchanged for new ID tags no later than 15 days after receipt of the tags. EQUITAG may replace damaged ID tags with new identification numbers and corresponding QR-Codes, in which case animals associated with the damaged ID tag will be assigned the new ID by EQUITAG.

EQUITAG Subscriptions for Online Access

All subscriptions to online content are prepaid (see "Fees and Services" above). We do this to ensure that each ID tag and its corresponding data repository online is unique and NEVER before issued to another company/person. EQUITAG cannot recover or reassign allocated web resources (such as dedicated URLs) or ID tags; thus all sales are final. TEST THE EQUITAG SYSTEM BEFORE PURCHASING. EQUITAG provides demonstration animal profiles so that users can test the system before they purchase a subscription. Be sure to test the system on all devices that you plan to use with respect to your animals (e.g., desktop, tablet, mobile)
