To begin, here is LEND A PET’s definition of a ‘Lender’, ‘Borrower’ and a ‘Pet’:

 

Lender- A Lender is a Member, activated or non-activated, of the LEND A PET community. A Lender has a profile on the Site and has completed their profile to the very best of their ability and has inputted truthful and accurate information in answer to the questions asked during the profile creation stage on the Site. A Lender is a pet owner, with one or more pets, who is willing to give their pet to a Borrower for a timeframe that is confirmed between the Lender and Borrower, with the intention of getting their pet/s back from the Borrower once the confirmed timeframe is over. A Lender has created a profile on the Site in order to; find a Borrower to help exercise their pet (e.g. to take for walks), socialise their pet with other people and/or other animals, find a Borrower to take care of their pet/s for a negotiated period of time whilst they are away from home (e.g. on holidays) and/or find a Borrower who will play with their pet/s whilst they are away for a few hours at a time (e.g. at work, at TAFE, etc.). A Lender accepts that they will be responsible for any incidents and/or injuries that may occur to themselves, the pet or pets that they have agreed to lend, and/or any third party involved in their LEND A PET experience. A Lender has read, understood, accepted and will comply with LEND A PET’s Terms and Conditions (available on the Site), Privacy Policy (available on the Site) and Must-Read Checklist (sent to them from LEND A PET prior to lending and/or borrowing).  A Lender is honest, trustworthy, reliable and considerate when dealing with other LEND A PET community Members, pets or animals, and LEND A PET Staff.

 

Borrower- A Borrower is a Member, activated or non-activated, of the LEND A PET community. A Borrower has a profile on the Site and has completed their profile to the best of their ability and has inputted truthful and accurate information in answer to the questions asked during the profile creation stage on the Site. A Borrower is a person who would like to find a pet to borrow for a negotiated period of time, at the end of which they intend to return the pet back to its owner (the Lender). A Borrower may wish to borrow a pet because; they would like to own a pet but currently do not have the space or means to do so, they would like to test whether they are ready to own a pet, they would like to see if their children are ready to take on the responsibility that comes with owning a pet, they would like a companion, they would like to borrow a pet to take for walks, they would like to live a healthier lifestyle and get outdoors more and borrowing a pet will motivate them to do this, they wish to socialise their pet with other people and/or animals and/or they simply love animals and enjoy taking care of them. A Borrower accepts that they will be responsible for any incidents and/or injuries that may occur to themselves, the pet or pets that they have agreed to borrow, and/or any third party involved in their LEND A PET experience. A Borrower has read, understood, accepted and will comply with LEND A PET’s Terms and Conditions (available on the Site), Privacy Policy (available on the Site) and Must-Read Checklist (sent to them from LEND A PET prior to lending and/or borrowing).  A Borrower is honest, trustworthy, reliable and considerate when dealing with other LEND A PET community Members, pets or animals, and LEND A PET Staff.

 

Pet- A pet is a domesticated, trained, and tame animal that is owned by an individual or group of individuals for a number of reasons including, but not limited to; companionship, health, to entertain their children, etc.      

 

 

 

Any dispute/s between the Lender, Borrower and any third party is to be resolved by the Lender and/or Borrower. LEND A PET will not be responsible for finding a solution, settling, and/or offering an outcome to any issue, accident, injury or difficulty that has occurred prior, during, or post the LEND A PET experience.  You accept and agree that LEND A PET and the Site provides a platform for activated Members, and non-activated Members, to negotiate their own terms and conditions upon lending and/or borrowing a pet or a number of pets. LEND A PET do their best to check every profile that is created via the Site, this is a lengthy process so please understand that we must first complete this process before we can provide you with any information relating to a potential Lender and/or Borrower.

LEND A PET will not provide any Member, activated or non-activated, with any opportunities to lend and/or borrow until the Member’s profile is completed to a satisfactory level. If your profile details do not match your PayPal and Facebook details, and you have not provided any other form or proof of identification, understand that LEND A PET will not provide you with any lending and/or borrowing opportunities, even if you have paid the activation fee.

Also include in the letter that the parents or legal guardians will monitor all emails and any other form of communication between LEND A PET and other Members of the LEND A PET community. The parents or legal guardians must confirm that they allow and accept full responsibility if any incidents or accidents occur that involve the underage Member, the pet/s, and any other third party involved during the entire LEND A PET process.
