THE ANIMAL MEDICAL CENTER
Last Updated on June 19, 2007 
 
Welcome to the web site of The Animal Medical Center, Inc. (“we” or “AMC”). This user agreement ("User Agreement"), which includes our Privacy Statement, sets forth the terms and conditions for your use of the web site we operate at amcny.org (“Our Site”). We may change this User Agreement (including the Privacy Statement) from time to time by posting an updated version on this page, or, if we determine that it’s appropriate, we may post a special notice of the changes on our home page. By continuing to use the Site after we have posted an updated User Agreement or special notice, you agree to the new User Agreement.
 
 
Please read this User Agreement carefully, because by using Our Site, you agree to be bound by and comply with its terms and conditions. If you do not consent to the User Agreement, you are not authorized to use Our Site. 
 

Persons Under Age 18 
 
Our Site is designed for use solely by persons aged 18 years and older. By using Our Site, you represent to us that you are over 18. If you are not at least 18 years old, you may not use Our Site. 
 
Privacy Statement 
 
Please review our Privacy Statement, which forms a part of this User Agreement. The Privacy Statement describes our collection and use of information about you. 
 
Donations 
 
To accept donations that you make in support of our programs, Our Site refers you to the Groundspring.org web site. Groundspring.org is a non-profit organization that helps other non-profit organizations (like AMC) with their fundraising activities. When you contribute through Groundspring.org’s web site, you are making a donation to Groundspring.org with a direction to grant the funds to AMC, so long as AMC meets Groundspring.org’s criteria for receiving donations. While your donation is in Groundspring.org’s hands, Groundspring.org has exclusive legal control over the funds. Groundspring.org commits in its policies to provide you with an acknowledgement of your donation for tax-deduction purposes. To learn more about how Groundspring.org handles your donation, please visit its web site.

Because Groundspring.org is a separate organization with a separate web site, our Privacy Statement does not apply to Groundspring. To learn more about how Groundspring handles your information, please review its privacy policy.
