What is the Legality of using Rover clients for products, if I become a manufacturer representative?

asked 2015-11-28 17:51:41 -0600

I am considering becoming a representative for a harness company called Wonder Walkers, and I was wondering if it's legal for me to use my Rover clients as potential clients for the product. I would be stealing them away or anything, as they're incompatible businesses, just suggesting the purchase of a product that is useful in dog walking.

I suggest you read Rover's Terms of Service, particularly Section 4:

Thank you. I read through it thoroughly and I don't believe it would violate any of those guidelines.

Really? How about 4.1.1: use the Service for any commercial purpose, unless expressly authorized by Rover.com; Have you obtained Rover's authorization?

If you really want to ensure no issues arise, I'd suggest emailing the question to Rover Support.(and be sure to read your message before sending - above I think you meant you would NOT (NOT was missing) be stealing... If you end up promoting the product, I'd also recommend you ensure pet owners understand your new affiliation (since perception of "this is a great product I found" differs from "this is a great product I found that I also represent/sell") and do so in a way that owners will not feel uncomfortable about their sitting arrangements if they do not purchase the product.
