Registration entitles you to a non-exclusive, non-transferable right to access and use the Service, subject to these Terms.
Registration occurs when you register and your registration forms have been received, processed and approved; at which time, you warrant and represent that:
you meet all applicable legal requirements, including age requirements, for doing so;
you have authority to agree to these Terms;
the personal information you provide when registering to become a registrants is accurate, and that you will keep your contact information up to date;

All new members to Australian Designer Breeders Pty Ltd start with a probationary registration. Once probationary registration has commenced, a registrant can immediately apply for full registration (Bronze, Silver or Gold). Probationary Members agree that once twelve (12) months has passed from the beginning of their registration, they will be required to arrange for their premises to be audited by a practicing veterinarian or recognised auditer of Australian Designer Breeders Pty Ltd or have annual veterinarian checks of breeding animals. You agree that if you do not submit an acceptable audit report to us within three (3) months, then your membership may be cancelled until an acceptable audit/ checks are submitted to us.
Probationary fees are $199.99 in a once-off payment or 12 monthly instalments of $19.99. This is a non-refundable payment. If a registrant has a change of mind, they are contracted to pay the full twelve monthly installments regardless; this cost is not refundable. If a registrant has agreed to the 12 monthly instalment option, and cancel their registration before the 12 months end, they will be charged the remaining amount owing on their account. This is $239.88 minus the amount that the individual has paid toward their probationary registration. By signing and agreeing to a 12 monthly instalment option a registrant allows Australian Designer Breeders Pty Ltd permission to debit amount owing from the credit card on file for that individual without notice.
Upgrading from Probationary to Full Registration
During the first 12 months of Registration
- Providing all required documents have been sent to Australian Designer Breeders Pty Ltd, processed and approved a probationary registrant can upgrade to a full registration during the first 12 months for the remaining timeframe of the year, dating from the original date of registration (at Probationary).
- If the registrant has paid their probationary fee in full, the calendar year for the full registration will have commenced from their Probationary registration date. They will have no amount owing for the full registration for that calendar year.
Full Registration is an annual fee, payed in full each year, or in 12 monthly installments.
- If a registrant has chosen the monthly instalment plan during Probationary Registration, the amount paid toward the annual fee for the level of full registration the registrant is upgrading to will be deducted from amount owing for that calendar year. They will be required to pay this fee in full or continue on a monthly instalment contract to commence Full Registration. The monthly instalment will change depending on the level of full registration that the registrant is upgrading to. The calendar year for a full registrant will role over and monthly instalments will continue for the next calendar year of registration with Australian Designer Breeders Pty Ltd.
After the first 12 months of Registration
- Full Registration is an annual fee, payed in full each year, or in 12 monthly instalments.
- A registrant must provide notice in writing to cancel their registration before the roll over to a new calendar year (since the beginning of the registrants probationary registration) occurs. Once the roll over occurs, the registrant is contracted for another 12 months of instalments.
- Full Registration is required once the 12 months of Probationary Registration is due to expire. A registrant must submit required documents and pay their registration fees in order to commence Full Registration with Australian Designer Breeders Pty Ltd.
- A full registrant can cancel their registration at any time by written desire to do so. They will be charged what is owed for their calendar year. If a registrant is paying their registration in 12 monthly instalments, the total amount still owing (of the 12 monthly instalments) will be deducted from the card on file of the registrant.
