We may offer goods or services ('Products') for sale on this website. Your purchase of each Product shall be governed by these Terms and any additional terms that we communicate to you at the time of purchase.
Some Products may be purchased for a specified term, e.g., monthly or annually ('Subscription Products'), rather than relating to a one-off good or service. The subscription term varies depending on the Subscription Product that you order. You are entitled to receive the relevant Subscription Product only during the subscription term specified in your order.
This website and the information on it constitute an invitation to treat and not an offer to supply Products. When you order Products from us, this constitutes an offer from you to buy those Products in accordance with these Terms. Only when we have accepted your order through the website following our receipt of your payment for that order shall a contract be formed between you and us.
You may order Products from us by completing the relevant form online and providing us with the details of your order. You must provide all required information (including your name and email address). We shall then accept or reject your order through our website following our receipt of your payment for that order.
Our discretion in rejecting or accepting orders
No order shall be deemed accepted by us until you have received an order confirmation from us. We reserve the right to accept or reject (for any reason whatsoever and in whole or in part) any order submitted by you. If we reject your order (or part of your order), any money paid by you in relation to the rejected part of that order shall be refunded and we shall have no further liability to you in relation to the rejected part of that order.
The price payable by you for any Product ordered by you shall be the price quoted on this website at the time your order is submitted. We may vary any prices on this website at any time and without notice to you.
Except where specifically stated in relation to a particular good or services, the prices for the goods or services are stated and payable in United States dollars (USD).
Taxes and other charges
All prices on this website are exclusive of all import fees, duties, tariffs, taxes or other imposts or charges which may be payable in relation to your order. You shall be liable to pay any import fees, duties, taxes, and other imposts or charges which are payable in relation to your order. We shall not be liable for any import fees, duties, tariffs, taxes or other imposts or charges which may be payable in relation to your order.
We may charge fees or other amounts to access certain aspects of the Products available on this website. We have no obligation to supply Products unless and until we receive payment of all prices and fees. You are fully liable for all charges incurred under your account whether or not authorized by you. You must pay for your orders using the third-party payments service selected by us, such as PayPal or Clickbank.com. You agree to pay for your orders by authorizing our nominated third-party payment service to charge your credit card account for the total price of the goods or services ordered and the applicable delivery charges (if any). You agree to be bound by the terms of these third-party payment services.
You agree to pay for any Subscription Products by recurring payment. We will automatically charge you the relevant charges on a recurring basis. If you elect to subscribe for a Subscription Product on a monthly basis, then we will automatically charge you the relevant charges for the subsequent month unless you cancel your subscription before the new monthly subscription term begins. If you elect to subscribe for a Subscription Product annually, we will automatically charge you the relevant charges for the subsequent year, unless you cancel your subscription before the new annual subscription terms begins. You accept responsibility for all recurring charges incurred prior to cancellation. You agree that we may make periodic charges relating to your subscription without further authorization from you.
Problems with payments
If there is a problem with your payment (for example, if your credit card transaction is declined), we may contact you to make alternative payment arrangements. You will be liable for all debt collection costs where you fail to make payment for any order.
Availability of Products, accuracy
All orders are subject to the availability of the Products we provide. If for any reason a Product is not available, we will endeavor to notify the non-availability on this website. We may revise the range of Products or the specification of any product at any time and without notice to you.
Although we have endeavored to ensure that the Products and pricing information provided on this website is accurate, complete, and current, we do not provide any representations or warranties as to its accuracy, completeness or currency of information, and we shall not be responsible or liable for any inaccurate, incomplete, or out-of-date information on this website.
Cancellation of orders: Non-Subscription Products
You may cancel your order any time prior to our order confirmation. Because downloadable goods or services are available to you, and could be copied by you on delivery, you cannot cancel once we have confirmed your order. If you cancel an order in accordance with these Terms before confirmation, we will refund your money as soon as reasonably possible and in any event within 30 days of cancellation of your order.
Cancellation of orders: Subscription Products
You may cancel your subscription for any Subscription Product any time by giving us 48 hours' notice that you wish to cancel your subscription. If you cancel an order in accordance with these Terms, we will cancel future subscription instalment payments as soon as reasonably possible. Please note that if you give us notice of cancellation fewer than 48 hours before a pending subscription instalment payment is due to be charged, we cannot guarantee that that payment will be cancelled.
Where any Product is listed on this website with an incorrect price or with incorrect information, we reserve the right to cancel your order (regardless of whether you have made payment for that order). Where you have already made payment for an order that is subsequently cancelled by us, we will refund the amount paid by you in relation to that order.
Ownership and risk
You agree that all Products made available to you through this website are for personal use and cannot be copied, distributed, resupplied, or otherwise deal with except as expressly permitted under these Terms or otherwise with our prior written consent in each instance. Any software made available through this website (through purchase or otherwise) is licensed not sold.

This site is continually under development and Free Rascals t/a Yes Happy Pets makes no warranty of any kind, implied or express, as to its accuracy, completeness or appropriateness for any purpose.
With regards to financial and/or animal health related content on the site:
Neither Free Rascals t/a Yes Happy Pets nor its owners, officers, directors, employees, subsidiaries, affiliates, licensors, service providers, content providers and agents are financial advisers or veterinarians or veterinary staff and nothing contained on the site is intended to be or to be construed as financial or veterinary advice.
The education and information presented herein is intended for a general audience and does not purport to be, nor should it be construed as, specific advice tailored to any individual.
The information contained in any programs offered on or via this site (including but not limited to content in any format) is based on sources and information reasonably believed to be accurate as of the time it was recorded or created. However, this material deals with topics that are constantly changing and are subject to ongoing changes related to technology and the market place as well as legal and related compliance issues. Therefore, the completeness and current accuracy of the materials cannot be guaranteed. These materials do not constitute legal, compliance, financial, tax, accounting, veterinary or related advice.
The end user of this information should therefore use the contents of these programs and the materials as a general guideline and not as the ultimate source of current information and when appropriate the user should consult their own legal, accounting or other advisors.
Any case studies, examples, illustrations cannot guarantee that the user will achieve similar results. In fact, your results may vary significantly and factors such as your market, personal effort and many other circumstances may and will cause results to vary.
The information provided in any products on this site or via this site is sold and provided on an “as is” basis. Free Rascals t/a Yes Happy Pets does not promise or guarantee any income or particular result from your use of the information contained herein. Those results are your responsibility as the end user of the product. (some states/countries/jurisdictions do not allow limited warranties, so this may not apply to you.) In particular, Free Rascals t/a Yes Happy Pets shall not be liable to users or any other party for any damages, or costs, of any character including but not limited to direct or indirect, consequential, special, incidental, or other costs or damages, in excess of the purchase price of the product or services. These limitations may be affected by the laws of particular states and jurisdictions and as such may be applied in a different manner to a particular user.
We may cancel or terminate your right to use the Site or any part of the Site at any time without notice. In the event of cancellation or termination, you are no longer authorized to access the part of the Site affected by such cancellation or termination. The restrictions imposed on you with respect to material downloaded from the Site, and the disclaimers and limitations of liabilities set forth in these Terms of Service, shall survive.
Your purchase of a product or service or ticket to an event may or may not provide for any refund. Each specific product, service, event or course will specify its own refund policy.
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under the U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that materials hosted by FREE RASCALS T/A YES HAPPY PETS infringe your copyright, you, or your agent may send to FREE RASCALS T/A YES HAPPY PETS a notice requesting that the material be removed or access to it be blocked. Any notification by a copyright owner or a person authorized to act on its behalf that fails to comply with requirements of the DMCA shall not be considered sufficient notice and shall not be deemed to confer upon FREE RASCALS T/A YES HAPPY PETS actual knowledge of facts or circumstances from which infringing material or acts are evident. If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send to FREE RASCALS T/A YES HAPPY PETS a counter-notice. All notices and counter notices must meet the then current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA. FREE RASCALS T/A YES HAPPY PETS's Copyright Agent for notice of claims of copyright infringement or counter notices can be reached as follows: [email protected]

Notwithstanding the foregoing, all rights and obligations under this Agreement may be freely assigned by FREE RASCALS T/A YES HAPPY PETS to any affiliated entity or any of its wholly owned subsidiaries.
Class Action Waiver
You may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations aren't allowed.
The arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a class or representative proceeding or claims (such as a class action, consolidated action or private attorney general action) unless all relevant parties specifically agree to do so following initiation of the arbitration.
If any clause within this Provision (other than the Class Action Waiver clause above) is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that clause will be severed from this Provision, and the remainder of this Provision will be given full force and effect. If the Class Action Waiver clause is found to be illegal or unenforceable, this entire Provision will be unenforceable and the dispute will be decided by a South African court.
If you give us feedback about this website or our products or services, you grant us the right to use that feedback for the purpose of improving our website, products or services (and for any other purpose we deem necessary or desirable) without being obliged to pay you any compensation in respect of our use of that feedback. We (and our employees and agents) do not accept or consider unsolicited ideas, including artwork, demos, samples, and other ideas for new promotions, products, product names, processes, technologies, or materials ('unsolicited ideas'). You must not send unsolicited ideas to us. If you do send us unsolicited ideas, we do not warrant or represent that those unsolicited ideas will be treated as confidential or proprietary; and such unsolicited ideas will be treated and licensed as if they were 'user content' in accordance with these Terms.
