Welcome to VidiVet’s Terms & Conditions of Use (these “Terms”). This is a contract between you, whether personally or on behalf of an entity (“you”) and VIDIVET LTD, doing business as VidiVet (“VidiVet”, “we”, “us”, or “our”).
We provide an online veterinary service (the “Service”) through a mobile application where pet health advice is sought by a pet owner using non-real time communication via text, photographs and videos. Video responses are provided by a licensed veterinarian registered with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (“the Vet”).
We want you to know your and our rights before you use the https://vidivet.com website as well as any other media form, media channel, mobile website or mobile application related, linked, or otherwise connected thereto, including any medium through which the Service is provided (collectively, the “Site”).
By accessing the Site and/or registering with us and/or using any service provided by us including the Service, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agree to be legally bound by all of these Terms.
The Site and Service is intended for users who are resident of the United Kingdom and at least 18 years old. Persons under the age of 18 are not permitted to use or register for the Site or Service.
IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ALL OF THESE TERMS, THEN YOU ARE EXPRESSLY PROHIBITED FROM USING THE SITE AND/OR SERVICE AND YOU MUST DISCONTINUE USE IMMEDIATELY.
2. Amendments to these terms
We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to modify, amend or change these Terms at any time (a ”Change”) and for any reason. If we do this then the Changes will be posted on this page and we will indicate by updating the “Last updated” date of these Terms, and you waive any right to receive specific notice of each such Change. It is your responsibility to periodically review these Terms to stay informed of updates, and also to review the latest version of these Terms prior to purchasing and/or using any of our services, including the Service. You will be subject to, and will be deemed to have been made aware of and to have accepted, the Changes in any revised Terms by your continued use of the Site after the date such revised Terms are posted.
3. The service
The Service is an online veterinary service provided through the Site where pet health advice is sought by a pet owner using non-real time communication via text, photographs and videos. Video responses are provided by the Vet. This form of communication between you and the Vet is referred to as an “Interaction”.
The Service is currently only available to residents of the United Kingdom and any other territory in which veterinarians are formally regulated by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons.
You will be asked to provide basic information about your pet including but not limited to species, breed and weight which can assist the Vet in helping you and your pet. During the course of an Interaction, you may be asked to provide the Vet with further texts, videos and photographs to help describe your pet’s condition to the Vet. An interaction will be considered completed if you do not respond to the Vet within 48 hours. The Vet will close the interaction once this period has completed and the interaction will be stored as Closed in the mobile phone application.
Please note that the Site and the Service are not a replacement for traditional veterinary services, but instead are complementary to veterinary care in a physical clinic. VidiVet cannot conduct or provide a physical examination of your pet and does not offer any diagnostic services, provide diagnosis of disease or prescribe medication as per the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Code of Professional Conduct for Veterinary Surgeons. Via the Service, VidiVet and/or the Vet can only provide triage and general health advice as per the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Code of Professional Conduct for Veterinary Surgeons. This means that based on the information you have provided, the Vet advises on what they recommend as the next step for your pet’s care.
AS A RESULT, VIDIVET BEARS NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY EXAMINATION OR OTHER MEDICAL SERVICES PROVIDED DURING AN INTERACTION.
In the case of an emergency or if you feel that your pet is deteriorating, please contact your registered vet immediately. If additional symptoms or similar occur, or if new relevant information comes to light after your interaction has been closed, please start a new interaction, or speak to your registered vet.
We may share a summary of the interaction with your veterinary practice if you receive VidiVet as a subsidised service through the practice and they have requested these records.
You may not record, in whole or in part, any chat conversation or video response from the Vet unless permission has been granted by VidiVet.
