Warrant and represent that you have the right, authority and capacity to agree and be bound by these Terms.

Description of the Platform and the Services
The Platform is an internet community and its general function is to allow Users to share information with other Users through User Pages (defined below). The Platform also allows certain Users ("Customers") to connect with other Users that provide certain Services ("Service Providers"). Service Providers may include animal breeders, groomers, massage therapists, etc. Service Providers are independent from the Platform and are in no way affiliated with or employees or agents of PuppyViewer.
For some Services, the Platform also allows Customers to schedule appointments with Service Providers through the Service Provider’s User Page ("Schedules"). These Schedules are for convenience only. Customers and Service Providers are responsible for confirming appointments with each other.
Disclaimer: Use the Platform at Your Own Risk
You acknowledge and understand that PuppyViewer does not provide the Services to Customers directly but that through the Platform, we provide a venue whereby Customers and Service Providers may connect. PuppyViewer is not a party to any contract for Services from a Service Provider.
