Jurisdiction And Applicable Law
If you have any concerns about material which appears on our site, please contact support(at)bedogsavvy(dot)com.
This Acceptable Use Policy sets out the terms between you and us under which you may access our website bedogsavvy.com (our site). This Acceptable Use Policy applies to all users of, and visitors to, our site.
Your use of our site means that you accept, and agree to abide by, all the policies in this Acceptable Use Policy, which supplement our Terms of Website Use.

We may from time to time provide interactive services on our site, including, without limitation:
- Chat rooms;
- Bulletin boards;
- Forums; and
- Live Chat.
Where we do provide any interactive service, we will provide clear information to you about the kind of service offered, if it is moderated and what form of moderation is used (including whether it is human or technical).
We will do our best to assess any possible risks for users (and in particular, for children) from third parties when they use any interactive service provided on our site, and we will decide in each case whether it is appropriate to use moderation of the relevant service (including what kind of moderation to use) in the light of those risks. However, we are under no obligation to oversee, monitor or moderate any interactive service we provide on our site, and we expressly exclude our liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of any interactive service by a user in contravention of our content standards, whether the service is moderated or not.
The use of any of our interactive services by a minor is subject to the consent of their parent or guardian. We advise parents who permit their children to use an interactive service that it is important that they communicate with their children about their safety online, as moderation is not foolproof. Minors who are using any interactive service should be made aware of the potential risks to them.
Where we do moderate an interactive service, we will normally provide you with a means of contacting the moderator, should a concern or difficulty arise.
These content standards apply to any and all material which you contribute to our site (contributions), and to any interactive services associated with it.
You must comply with the spirit of the following standards as well as the letter. The standards apply to each part of any contribution as well as to its whole.

Service Availability And Export Restrictions
Our site is primarily intended for (but not limited to) use by users resident in the USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, although we do accept orders from individuals outside those countries. If we are made aware of any export restrictions placed on the extent to which we accept orders from specific countries we may have to reject your order.
Your status: By placing an order through our site, you warrant that you are legally capable of entering into binding contracts; and that you are at least 18 years old.
How The Contract Is Formed Between You And Us
After placing an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a Product. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that your order has been accepted (the Order Confirmation). The contract between us (Contract) will only be formed when we send you the Order Confirmation.
You may cancel a Contract at any time within seven working days, beginning on the day after you received the Products. In this case, you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the Products in accordance with our refunds policy below. To cancel a Contract as a consumer, you must inform us in writing by emailing us at support (at) bedogsavvy.com. If the Product(s) are physical such as books or DVDs you must also return the Product(s) to us immediately, in the same condition in which you received them, and at your own cost and risk. You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the Products while they are in your possession. If you fail to comply with this obligation, we may have a right of action against you for compensation. Whether as a consumer or otherwise, you do not have right to cancel a Contract for the supply of any of the following Products: memberships/subscriptions, downloaded e-books, and CDs/DVDs where the security seal has been broken – but see below our “No-quibble refunds policy” for e-books and “Membership / Subscription” free trial guarantee. This does not affect your statutory rights.
Availability And Delivery
Where the Products are physically delivered (for example, hard copy books, DVDs or CDs), your order will be fulfilled by the delivery date set out in the Order Confirmation or, if no delivery date is specified, then within a reasonable time of the date of the Order Confirmation, unless there are exceptional circumstances. The majority of our Products are electronic or subscription based products where delivery is virtually instant with the Order Confirmation. These may take the form of a downloadable document, video or sound file(s).
Some of our Products are membership/subscription based or they incorporate an element of membership or subscription. When placing your order you authorise us to take the specified regular periodic membership payment(s) (monthly, unless specified otherwise) from your credit/debit card supplied to us without further notice to you until such time as you cancel your membership / subscription. Where our offer includes a free or reduced price trial (fourteen days unless specified otherwise) we will take the first full periodic payment on the final day of your free trial. This payment will be taken automatically unless you have given us prior written notice to cancel by sending an email to support (at) bedogsavvy dot com or submitting a cancellation request to the bedogsavvy support centre. Your notice to cancel the membership / subscription must be received no later than 48 hours prior to the end of your trial or, once the trial period has expired, no later than 48 hours prior to the end of each periodic billing period. If we do not receive your notice of cancellation within this timescale your payment will be automatically deducted at the stated periodic intervals and is then non-refundable. In order to keep the product simple and price competitive we regret that we cannot refund membership subscriptions in full or in part for which payment has been taken in accordance with our terms. Where we have sent you a free CD as part of a membership / subscription product and you decide to cancel the membership / subscription, we are unable to refund the cost of shipping. Our 60 day no quibble guarantee does not apply to our membership / subscription products. Your statutory rights remain unaffected.
Price, Currency And Payment
The price of any Products will be as quoted on our site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error. These prices are in US dollars and include VAT (if applicable) but exclude delivery costs, which where relevant will be added to the total amount due. The US dollar price will be charged to your credit or debit card in your own currency and converted at the prevailing rate. Prices (and exchange rates) are liable to change at any time up to Order Confirmation.
Despite our best efforts, a Product listed on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our order acceptance procedures so that, where a Product’s correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when accepting an order for the Product from you. If a Product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before accepting the Order, or reject your Order and notify you of such rejection. We are under no obligation to provide the Product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you an Order Confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.
Payment for all Products must be by credit or debit card. We accept payment using Paypal, Visa, and MasterCard. We do not accept cash. If you wish to pay by cheque please send this made out to Richard Cussons at the trading address above. We are not responsible for any handling charges, foreign currency fees or similar charged by your credit or debit card provider.
No Quibble Refunds Policy
We like to have very satisfied customers. If you decide that any e-book Product that you have purchased is not suitable for whatever reason you may request a refund from us at any time within 60 days from the date of purchase. To do so please log in to the support centre, go to the contact refunds department section and complete the fields which include the name of the original purchaser, the purchase identification number and the email address of the original cardholder. This will allow us to process the refund quickly. If you do not have all this information you can email us at support (at) bedogsavvy.com but please allow a little more time for us to trace your original order. Please note we can only refund to the card account which was used to make the original purchase.
Our Refunds Policy
Please note that this is in addition to our no quibble refunds policy above which applies to e-books. When you return a Product to us: (a) because you have cancelled the Contract between us within the seven-day cooling-off period as a consumer, we will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day you have given notice of your cancellation. In this case, we will refund the price of the Product in full, including the cost of sending the item to you. However, you will be responsible for the cost of returning the item to us; or (b) for any other reason (for instance, that you do not agree to any change in these terms and conditions or in any of our policies, or because you claim that the Product is defective), we will examine the returned Product and will notify you of your refund via e-mail within a reasonable period of time. We will usually process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day we confirmed to you via e-mail that you were entitled to a refund for the defective Product. Products returned by you because of a defect will be refunded in full, including a refund of the delivery charges for sending the item to you and the cost incurred by you in returning the item to us. We will usually refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase.
We warrant to you that any Product purchased from us through our site is of satisfactory quality and reasonably fit for the purposes for which products of the kind are commonly supplied. Our liability for losses you suffer as a result of us breaking this agreement is strictly limited to the purchase price of the Product you purchased. This does not include or limit in any way our liability: (a) for death or personal injury caused by our negligence; (b) under section 2(3) of the UK Consumer Protection Act 1987; (c) for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; or (d) for any matter for which it would be illegal for us to exclude, or attempt to exclude, our liability. We are not responsible for indirect losses which happen as a side effect of the main loss or damage, including but not limited to (a) loss of income or revenue; (b) loss of business; (c) loss of profits or contracts; (d) loss of anticipated savings; (e) loss of data; or (f) waste of management or office time, however arising and whether caused by tort (including negligence), breach of contract or otherwise, even if foreseeable.
If you order Products from our site for delivery outside the United Kingdom, they may be subject to import duties and taxes which are levied when the delivery reaches the specified destination. You will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes. Please note that we have no control over these charges and cannot predict their amount. Please contact your local customs office for further information before placing your order. Please also note that you must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the products are destined. We will not be liable for any breach by you of any such laws.
Applicable laws require that some of the information or communications we send to you should be in writing. When using our site, you accept that communication with us will be mainly electronic. We will contact you by e-mail or provide you with information by posting notices on our website. For contractual purposes, you agree to this electronic means of communication and you acknowledge that all contracts, notices, information and other communications that we provide to you electronically comply with any legal requirement that such communications be in writing. This condition does not affect your statutory rights.
All notices given by you to us must be given to us at support (at) bedogsavvy.com. We may give notice to you at either the e-mail or postal address you provide to us when placing an order. Notice will be deemed received and properly served immediately when posted on our website, 24 hours after an e-mail is sent, or three days after the date of posting of any letter. In proving the service of any notice, it will be sufficient to prove, in the case of a letter, that such letter was properly addressed, stamped and placed in the post and, in the case of an e-mail, that such e-mail was sent to the specified e-mail address of the addressee.
Transfer Of Rights And Obligations
The contract between you and us is binding on you and us and on our respective successors and assigns. You may not transfer, assign, charge or otherwise dispose of a Contract, or any of your rights or obligations arising under it, without our prior written consent. We may transfer, assign, charge, sub-contract or otherwise dispose of a Contract, or any of our rights or obligations arising under it, at any time during the term of the Contract.
Events Outside Our Control
We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations under a Contract that is caused by events outside our reasonable control (Force Majeure Event). Our performance under any Contract is deemed to be suspended for the period that the Force Majeure Event continues, and we will have an extension of time for performance for the duration of that period. We will use our reasonable endeavours to bring the Force Majeure Event to a close or to find a solution by which our obligations under the Contract may be performed despite the Force Majeure Event.
If we fail, at any time during the term of a Contract, to insist upon strict performance of any of your obligations under the Contract or any of these terms and conditions, or if we fail to exercise any of the rights or remedies to which we are entitled under the Contract, this shall not constitute a waiver of such rights or remedies and shall not relieve you from compliance with such obligations. A waiver by us of any default shall not constitute a waiver of any subsequent default. No waiver by us of any of these terms and conditions shall be effective unless it is expressly stated to be a waiver and is communicated to you in writing.
If any of these Terms and Conditions of Purchase or any provisions of a Contract are determined by any competent authority to be invalid, unlawful or unenforceable to any extent, such term, condition or provision will to that extent be severed from the remaining terms, conditions and provisions which will continue to be valid to the fullest extent permitted by law.
Our Right To Vary These Terms And Conditions Of Purchase
We have the right to revise and amend these terms and conditions from time to time to reflect changes in market conditions affecting our business, changes in technology, changes in payment methods, changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements and changes in our system’s capabilities. You will be subject to the policies and terms and conditions in force at the time that you order products from us, unless any change to those policies or these terms and conditions is required to be made by law or governmental authority (in which case it will apply to orders previously placed by you), or if we notify you of the change to those policies or these terms and conditions before we send you the Order Confirmation (in which case we have the right to assume that you have accepted the change to the terms and conditions, unless you notify us to the contrary within seven working days of receipt by you of the Products).
Law And Jurisdiction
Contracts for the purchase of Products through our site will be governed by English law. Any dispute arising from, or related to, such Contracts shall be subject to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.
