Welcome to ARF PETS!
This website (the “Site”) is operated by C&A Marketing, Inc. (the “Company”). Throughout the Site, the terms “we”, “us” and “our” refer to the Company. The Company offers this Site, including all information, tools and services available from this Site to you, the user, conditioned upon your acceptance of all terms, conditions, policies and notices stated here.
By visiting our Site, signing up for a newsletter, and/or purchasing something from us, you engage in our “Services” and agree to be bound by these Terms of Service (“Terms”) and any other applicable document referred to herein. These Terms apply to all users of the Site, including without limitation users who are browsers, vendors, customers, merchants, and/ or contributors of content.
Please read these Terms carefully before accessing or using our Site, as doing so includes your ability to enter into agreements and/or to make transactions electronically. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOUR ELECTRONIC ASSENT CONSTITUTES YOUR AGREEMENT AND INTENT TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS AND HONOR ALL TRANSACTIONS YOU ENTER INTO. If you do not agree to these Terms, please do not use this Site. If these Terms should be considered an offer, you acknowledge that our acceptance is expressly limited to the specifications and conditions stated herein.
Any new features or tools which are added to the current store shall also be subject to the Terms. You can review the most current version of the Terms at any time on this page. We reserve the right to update, change or replace any part of these Terms by posting updates and/or changes to our website without notice. Accordingly, it is your responsibility to check this page periodically for changes.

These Terms give you specific legal rights, but you may also have other legal rights in addition, which vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. The disclaimers, exclusions, and limitations of liability under these Terms will not apply to the extent prohibited by applicable law. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages or other rights, so those provisions may not apply to you, but shall be limited to the maximum extent permitted by law.
