1. BINDING AGREEMENT
PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE NANNYCARE. COM WEB SITE USE AGREEMENT (“AGREEMENT”) CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THIS SITE. This Agreement is a binding legal contract between NannyCare.com otherwise known as Worldwide Nanny Inc. (“WWNI”, “Corporation”,“we”, “us” or “our”) and you, the Provider or Caregiver, otherwise known as (“you”, “your”, “member”, “user”, “Provider”, “Parent”, “Family”, “Nanny” or “Caregiver’” ) that governs your use of one or more of NannyCare.com’s professional portals, including, without limitation, all content such as text, information, images, applications and audio (collectively, “Content”) and all services (“Services”) made available to you through the NannyCare.com member areas. “Services” shall mean any of the various services that NannyCare.com offers through the Site or any other channels or portals, including without limitation, over the telephone, Skype, FaceTime, fax or video. The Site and the Content and Services are collectively referred to herein as the “Site”. For the purpose of this agreement, “Site” refers to the pages within the NannyCare.com website and any other websites, website pages, mobile applications and/or mobile friendly websites owned and operated by NannyCare.com.
NannyCare.com works with third party partners and vendors (for example, background checking services, nanny tax services, nanny training programs and CPR/First Aid certification services) where members may be required to agree to certain conditions of using those Services (“Additional Terms”). In those cases, the Additional Terms will be found in those individual company’s materials whether online or printed.
2. OUR SERVICES
NannyCare.com offers Providers a way to find Caregivers by using credits. Providers can buy a membership (1 month is $59, 3 months is $149 and 1 year is $479) and contact Caregivers through our credit system. Each Caregiver is equal to one credit. The 1 month membership includes 25 credits, 3 month membership includes 100 credits and the yearly membership includes 250 credits. Once a credit is used on a Caregiver, the Provider will see the Caregiver’s name and profile link in their account area and can private message the Caregiver directly. In addition to being able to contact Caregivers, Providers can also post a job for free when they sign up for the 3 month or 1 year membership. Providers can also post a job separately outside of purchasing a membership for $99. Caregivers can private message Providers about their job postings. All Caregivers that register and pay the $24.99 membership fee will receive a 90 day membership where they can contact Providers about their job posts and have Providers view their profiles and private message them as well. Caregivers can receive badges if they purchase the following; preliminary background check, department of motor vehicles report and reference verification. They can also get a badge for uploading their CPR/First Aid certification. After the 90 day membership period, they can remain on the site for only $9.99/month. Site may offer free memberships and free job posting from time to time.
3. MEMBER RESPONSIBILITY
NannyCare.com does not screen the Caregivers in any way. It is up to the Provider to thoroughly screen all Caregivers, verify references and run a thorough background check on any Caregiver they hire. It is also the Provider’s responsibility to make sure the Caregiver has current CPR/First Aid that has not expired. If a Caregiver already has a preliminary background check, it is still the Provider’s responsibility to verify the results and validity of this preliminary background check. NannyCare.com takes no responsibility to update any Caregiver’s background check at any time. This is also the Provider’s responsibility. A preliminary background check should never be a substitute for the Provider’s duty to also screen any Caregiver they find on the site. In other words, Parents/ Providers need to still do their due diligence and screen all Caregivers, not just make a job offer without meeting, interviewing, calling references and running their own extensive background checks (as well as social media checks). NannyCare.com solely offers a place where Caregivers and Providers can meet and gain free information, resources and tools to help them in their search for a Caregiver and/or Provider. Please read our safety related articles so that you can make safe, informed hiring decisions. Caregivers are responsible for asking the Providers the appropriate questions on the phone that will allow them to decide if they want to pursue their job and meet with them. All Caregivers should research any Parent/Provider before meeting with them in person. A simple Google search in most cases can confirm where the Provider lives and what their occupation is (LinkedIn). It is recommended that you first meet the Provider at a local coffee shop or park so that there are other people present. NannyCare.com also recommends that Caregivers ask the Provider for a personal reference before meeting with them in person. Please read our safety related articles for Caregivers so that you can safely find the right job position.

NannyCare.com encourages Caregivers to perform a preliminary background check on themselves.NannyCare.com does not show any Provider the Caregiver’s background check results. The results of the preliminary background check will include personal information such as the caregiver’s full name and past addresses. If the Caregiver decides to show other members (Provider members) their preliminary background check results which includes personal information, that is solely the Caregiver’s choice. This holds true for the Caregiver’s drivers license, social security card and car insurance.The Caregiver must decide when they would like to share this information with the Provider (usually upon a conditional job offer).

17. BACKGROUND CHECKS
NannyCare.com does not automatically background check Caregiver members. Caregiver members can purchase a preliminary background check for $24.99 and receive a badge. Additionally, they can purchase a department of motor vehicles check for $25 (plus state fees) and receive a badge. There are no refunds on background checks and NannyCare.com will not accept any Caregivers who have a misdemeanor (including DUI and DWI), felony or any type of crime on their record. Provider’s should always run a more extensive background check before hiring any Caregiver. All Caregivers must sign our Disclosure & Authorization Form in order for us to run a preliminary background check on them. The NannyCare.com preliminary background check conducts the following searches. Social Security Address Trace Report-This is an instant check. It provides insight into the applicant’s residency and movement patterns by returning the full name, age, and date of birth, complete address history and may contain dates and phone numbers at listed addresses. The data is crosschecked through the Social Security Death index which is designed to prevent stealing of a deceased person’s identity. Nationwide Criminal Intel Search & National Sex Offender Search- Usually instant. A powerful multi-jurisdictional search of state and county criminal records. This database is complied from counties, Department of Corrections (DOC), Administration of the Court (AOC), and state sex offender registries from across the country. Also included in each search are national and international terrorism sources such as Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). This search includes the National Sex & Violent Offender Database, P.R.I.O.R.S. And the Foreign Nationals Database (Global Report).
NannyCare.com offer three a la carte background check searches that can be added onto the nanny’s preliminary background check. Keep in mind that if the nanny has used another name or been married during the past 7 years, you will need to run both names for the preliminary background check as well as all County and Federal searches. NannyCare.com offer’s individual County Criminal Searches, Federal Criminal Searches and a Department of Motor Vehicle Reports. You will need to purchase these separately after you have chosen your nanny. We charge $25 (plus state fees) for one County Criminal Records Search. The turn around time for this is 1-10 business days. These are court criminal record pulls of the county(ies) the nanny has lived in. Parents should always run all the counties the nanny has resided in over the past 7 years. We charge $25 (plus state fees) for Federal Criminal Record Searches (one district), the turn around time is usually 12-48 hours. This returns Federal Criminal Filings/Records and helps identify convictions for crimes that may not fall under state or local-laws. Examples of records returned are: Kidnapping, bank robbery and counterfeiting. We charge $25 (plus state fees) to run the nanny’s Motor Vehicle Report (MVR). This is usually instant. This searches information compiled from an individual state’s Department of Moto Vehicles. Reports access 3-7 years of license data or longer (depending on the state) and may include such information as license status, suspensions, revocations, moving violations, DUI’s, point accumulation, chargeable accidents, court appearances and departmental actions.
A. Limitations on Background Checks
There are certain limitations on background checks. It’s important to understand that background checks are not always accurate and may not reveal a person’s complete criminal history. With that said, we can do our best and attempt to find anything that might be there. NannyCare uses a third party to run all background checks. It’s important to understand that there are limitations to criminal record searches per state. This is due to each state having variations in laws as well as variations in state and county criminal record reporting systems. A well known factor is that many states prohibit reporting records that are more than seven years old. In some states, such as California, Kentucky, New Mexico, and New York, vendors can only report criminal convictions (not arrest or other non-conviction information, no matter how old it is). Some states, such as Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and New Jersey and various counties in Illinois and Michigan, the vendor does not search every courthouse. In states where all courthouses are not searched, only certain felonies and some gross misdemeanors (in the case of New Jersey), are revealed. There are also additional limitations in certain jurisdictions on the federal level. Furthermore, if the person being checked provides false information related to their home address, social security number, date of birth and name, the check will be ran with incorrect information and this can highly impact the results and validity of the check. Lastly, there is always human and electronic error that can effect results. If information is put in inaccurately or there is incomplete reporting, the results can be be invalid. To put it simply, even the most thorough, comprehensive background check may not disclose the presence of a criminal record. We believe that every family should conduct an extensive background check on their Nanny or Caregiver. We believe that our preliminary background check is helpful but it is not to be used as the Caregiver’s primary background check. At best, it may uncover any red flags. Furthermore, preliminary background checks are not always accurate and they should not solely be relied on to determine a person’s complete criminal history. A preliminary background check can be a good indicator of a person’s history but should only be used to help narrow down the initial candidate selection. A preliminary background check is not a substitution for interviewing & screening candidates and references should always be verified. Parent’s should always conduct in-person interviews, obtain copies of the applicant’s identification (such as social security card and driver’s license), verify references, conduct social media searches and continue to monitor any person they hire to care for their children.
18. EXCLUSION OF DAMAGES
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WHATSOEVER WILL WE BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY OTHER ENTITY FOR ANY DIRECT, COMPENSATORY, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL (INCLUDING LOST PROFITS AND LOST BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES), SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES THAT RESULT FROM NEGLIGENCE, INJURY OR RELATE IN ANY MANNER WHATSOEVER TO (1) YOUR USE OF THE SITE, OR RELIANCE ON THE CONTENT, OR (2) ERRORS, INACCURACIES, OMISSIONS, DEFECTS, UNTIMELINESS, SECURITY BREACHES, OR ANY OTHER FAILURE TO PERFORM BY US OR OUR CONTENT PROVIDERS. THE FOREGOING EXCLUSION SHALL APPLY REGARDLESS OF WHETHER WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. Some jurisdictions do not permit the exclusion of certain types of damages. Therefore, only if required by applicable law, some or all of the exclusions above may not apply to you. You may have other rights from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.

Caregivers should never be hired on the spot or without being interviewed in-person first.
