Please read these Terms before using the Site or the Services. By using the Site or Services, you hereby represent, warrant, understand, agree to and accept these Terms and any applicable Additional Terms in their entirety whether or not you submit an application to be a Nanny (as defined below), become a Customer (as defined below) or are otherwise a user of the Site and/or Services (“Users”).
The “Services” shall mean any of the various services that the Nanny Booth provides through the Site or any other channels, including over the telephone, and including providing information to and about qualified nannies who provide care services (individually a “Nanny” or collectively, “Nannies”), and to and about individuals seeking child care from the Nanny Booth (each a “Customer”), ordering and providing results for background checks on Nannies, and all other actions taken by the Nanny Booth to connect Nannies and Customers.
1. Description of Services; Limitations; User Responsibilities
1.1 About the Services
The Nanny Booth offers various Services to help place Nannies with interested Customers. The Services may include, among others:
Vetting Nannies by obtaining background checks and requiring and reviewing additional personal information about Nannies before allowing them to apply for jobs with Customers and before creating profiles for Nannies and sending any Nanny profiles to Customers.
Collecting information from Customers to generate a job description for that Customer’s needs.
Sending relevant job descriptions to Nannies; and sending relevant Nanny profiles to Customers to allow Customers and Nannies to narrow the pool of Customers or Nannies they are interested in meeting based on their needs and preferences, while maintaining the confidentiality of the Customers’ and Nannies’ contact information until the Customer and Nanny consent to an in-person interview.
1.2 Limitations of the Services
The Nanny Booth offers a variety of Services to help Customers find, coordinate, and maintain quality care from Nannies. However, The Nanny Booth does not employ any Nannies. Customers are the potential employers of Nannies and are responsible for compliance with all applicable employment and other laws in connection with any employment relationship they establish (such as applicable payroll, tax and minimum wage laws).
Further, the Nanny Booth does not have control over the quality, timing, or legality of the services actually delivered by Nannies, nor of the integrity, responsibility or actions of Customers or Nannies. The Nanny Booth recommends Customers and Nannies to one another based strictly on geographic location and the information available to us from Customer and Nanny applications and background checks. The Nanny Booth does not guarantee or make any representations about the suitability, reliability, timeliness, and accuracy of the services provided by Nannies or the integrity, responsibility or actions of Customers or Nannies whether in public, private or offline interactions.
Customer and Nanny content is primarily user generated, and the Nanny Booth does not control or vet user generated content for accuracy as a general matter. The Nanny Booth does not assume any responsibility for, nor does The Nanny Booth guarantee or warrant as to, the accuracy or reliability of any information provided by Nannies or Customers on or off this Site.
The Nanny Booth is not responsible for the conduct, whether online or offline, of any Customer, Nanny or other user of the Site or Services. Moreover, The Nanny Booth does not assume and expressly disclaims any liability that may result from the use of information provided on the Site. All users, including Customers and Nannies, hereby expressly agree not to hold The Nanny Booth (or the Nanny Booth’s officers, members, employees, independent contractors, subsidiaries, other affiliates, successors, assignees, or agents, hereinafter “Affiliates”) liable for the action or inaction of any Customer, Nanny or other third party or for any information, instruction, advice or services which originated through the Site, and, to the maximum extent permissible under applicable law, the Nanny Booth and its Affiliates expressly disclaims any liability whatsoever for any damage, suits, claims, and/or controversies that have arisen or may arise, whether known or unknown from any Customer, the Nanny Booth or other third party.
1.3 User Responsibilities

However, information obtained by the Nanny Booth about Nannies should not be taken as complete, accurate, up-to-date or conclusive of the Nanny’s suitability as an employee or care provider. Customers are responsible for their own interviewing, performing any additional background and reference checks on, and verifying information provided by Nannies, and ultimately selecting an appropriate Nanny for themselves and their family. Similarly, the information obtained by Nanny about Customers is extremely limited and should not be taken as complete, accurate, up-to-date or conclusive; and it is the sole responsibility of each Nanny to determine and verify additional information and make an informed decision about Customers for which it will provide service.
Each Customer is also responsible for complying with all applicable employment and other laws in connection with any employment relationship they establish, including verifying the age of the Nanny they select as well as that Nanny’s eligibility to work in the United States.

5. Background and Verification Checks
5.1 Background Checks For Nannies
the Nanny Booth’s procures certain background check services for Nannies from consumer reporting agencies in the Nanny Booth’s discretion (collectively “Background Checks”). Customers and Nannies may always obtain additional background checks on Nannies or on themselves (with consent and in accordance with applicable law) in Customers sole discretion. the Nanny Booth is not responsible for and shall not maintain records of any background checks obtained by a Nanny or Customer.
Background Checks are regulated by the Fair Credit Reporting Act (the “FCRA”), and the background reports resulting from the Background Checks are considered “consumer reports” under the FCRA. Consumer reports may contain information on a person’s character, general reputation, personal characteristics, and mode of living, including but not limited to consumer credit, criminal history, workers’ compensation, driving, employment, military, civil, and educational data and reports.
the Nanny Booth will receive a copy of each Background Check ordered or authorized through the Nanny Booth. If a Background Check does not pass, you will be emailed a copy of the results. You are responsible for making sure that the email addresses you provide to the Nanny Booth is correct, knowing that sensitive information will be sent to it.
If a Background Check comes back passing or with information that does not result in the Nanny Booth’s suspending or terminating a Nanny from using the Site and Services, the Background Check report will be forwarded to any Customer who requests it in accordance with your authorization at the time you applied to the Nanny Booth. The results of any Background Check that results in the Nanny Booth suspending or terminating you from use of the Site or Services will not be shared with other Users.
If a Customer orders background check pursuant to a Nanny’s written authorization, the consumer reporting agency that performed the check will provide the results directly to the Customer who ordered it, regardless of its contents, based on the Nanny’s authorization that the Customer obtains the check.
5.2 Special Responsibilities of Customers under FCRA
Customers may request and receive a copy of a Background Check on a Nanny via written authorization and agreement outside of these Terms, subject to the the Nanny Booth’s explicit instructions about who may have access to such a report.
If you receive a copy of a background report, you warrant that you will use such information only for a purpose permitted by FCRA, such as an employment purpose, and that you will comply with any and all applicable obligations of the FCRA as well as all other applicable consumer reporting laws.
Your responsibilities in using the information contained in the background check can be found at http://www.ftc.gov/os/statutes/fcrajump.shtm. FCRA governs the use of reports obtained from a consumer reporting agency, such as the third party consumer reporting agencies the Nanny Booth uses.
If there is negative data in a background check you receive, and you choose to take “adverse action” (i.e. choose to pass on that individual’s candidacy) on the basis of this negative data, you must agree to take certain procedural steps, which can be found at http://www.ftc.gov/os/statutes/fcrajump.shtm.These include notifying the individual who is the subject of the report of your decision to take adverse action based on information contained in the report and the subject’s right to contest the accuracy or completeness of the report. Moreover, if the subject contests the report with the consumer reporting agency, you are required to suspend the hiring process while the agency researches the accuracy and completeness of the report.
5.3 the Nanny Booth May Order and Use Background Checks About You
By using the Site or Services as a Customer or Nanny, you hereby acknowledge and agree that the Nanny Booth has the right, but not the obligation, to use a third party consumer reporting agency on an ongoing basis to use your personal information to run periodic background checks on you for the legitimate business purpose of protecting the safety and integrity of the Site and its Users (“Additional Background Checks”). the Nanny Booth may order these checks when you apply to Nanny and thereafter in connection with your continued use of the Services and/or interaction with the Site (such as by contacting or communicating with other members, posting or updating a job or profile, ordering or authorizing a Background Check, etc.).
These Additional Background Checks are also regulated by the Fair Credit Reporting Act (the “FCRA”), and the background reports resulting from these services are considered “consumer reports” under the FCRA. Consumer reports may contain information on your character, general reputation, personal characteristics, and mode of living, including but not limited to consumer credit, criminal history, workers’ compensation, driving, employment, military, civil, and educational data and reports.
You understand and agree that the Nanny Booth may review the information provided by the third party consumer reporting agency and that the Nanny Booth retains the right to terminate your Nanny application and use of the Site and Services based on the information it receives from these checks, even if such information was subsequently dismissed. If the Nanny Booth terminates your membership or access to the Site on the basis of information in a background report, it will notify you and provide you the name and contact information of the consumer reporting agency that created the report. the Nanny Booth will also provide you a copy of the report unless the consumer reporting agency has already provided you a copy or access to it. You hereby represent, understand and expressly agree that the Nanny Booth does not have control over or assume any responsibility for the quality, accuracy, or reliability of the information included in these checks. Furthermore, any inaccuracies in the report must be addressed with the consumer reporting agency that issued it (and not the Nanny Booth) within the time period specified in your notice.

IF YOU DO NOT WANT THESE INTERNAL BACKGROUND CHECKS TO BE PERFORMED, YOU SHOULD NOT USE THE THE NANNY BOOTH SITE OR SERVICES. NO FURTHER CONSENT FROM YOU IS REQUIRED FOR THESE CHECKS TO BE PERFORMED.
5.4 You also hereby represent, understand and expressly agree that the Nanny Booth does not have control over or assume any responsibility for the quality, accuracy, or reliability of the information included in a Verification Check. the Nanny Booth does not typically communicate the results of a Verification Check to any third party, though the Nanny Booth reserves the right to do so for law enforcement or other safety-related purposes in its sole discretion.

5.5 Release of Liability for Results of Background Checks, Internal Background Checks, and Verification Checks
If you decide to use or access information included in a Background Check, you hereby represent, understand and expressly agree that those checks are not always accurate or complete (or based on information that is accurate or complete) and that the specific records searched, and the comprehensiveness of the search, varies by the type of Background Check ordered as well as the state and county where the check is performed. For example, many jurisdictions only include felony conviction records (and not, for example, misdemeanor or arrest records) in the national criminal data base, which is the only data source utilized for preliminary background checks other than the sexual offender registry. Moreover, some states include only registered sex offenders in that database.
If you decide to access, use, or share information provided by a Background Check, you agree to do so in accordance with applicable law. You also agree to indemnify and hold harmless the Nanny Booth from any loss, liability, damage, or costs that may result from such access, use, or sharing of this information regardless of the cause. the Nanny Booth does not assume and expressly disclaims, and you hereby agree to release the Nanny Booth from, any loss, liability, damage, or costs that may result from the use of information provided in a background report including, without limitation, the inaccuracy or incompleteness of any such information.
You expressly acknowledge that the Nanny Booth has no obligation to perform Additional Background Checks or Verification Checks on any Users. To the extent MyNanny performs such checks on certain Users, the checks are limited and should not be taken as complete, accurate, up-to-date or conclusive evidence of the accuracy of any information those Users have provided or of their eligibility to use the Services.

15. Dispute Resolution
As a condition of using the Service, the Service Provider agrees to the following terms and conditions of this Section 15:
- “Covered Dispute” means any claim, cause of action, controversy, or other dispute between the Service Provider and Us and/or Service Provider and the Service Seeker that otherwise could be resolved by a court and that arises out of or relates to (i) the engagement of the Service Provider by the Service Seeker; (ii) Service Provider’s use of the Services; (iii) the services that the Service Provider performs for the Service Seeker; or (iv) amounts paid to the Service Provider related to services performed for a Service Seeker, excluding only Non-Covered Disputes. A “Covered Dispute” is covered by this Section 15, regardless of whether it has already accrued or will accrue in the future.
- “Non-Covered Disputes” are limited to (i) workers’ compensation, unemployment insurance benefits, or any other claims that, as a matter of law, we or the Service Seeker cannot agree to arbitrate, and (ii) any dispute where either party to the dispute is seeking injunctive or equitable relief for claims alleging unfair competition, unauthorized use or dissemination of Confidential Information, or the violation or threatened violation of any restrictive covenant to which any party is bound.
- “Us”, for purposes of this Section 15, refers to the Nanny Booth and any of its affiliates, partners, employees, owners, directors.
- Arbitration. Service Provider hereby agrees that any Covered Dispute that Service Provider has with Us or the Service Seeker will be submitted to binding arbitration to be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with its Employment Arbitration Rules and Mediation Procedure (or similar rules then in effect) (the “Rules”) applicable at the time the arbitration is commenced. The arbitrator will be selected as provided in the Rules. The arbitrator shall have the authority to set deadlines for completion of discovery and shall decide all discovery disputes. The Rules may be amended from time to time and are available online at www.adr.org. Anyone can also call the AAA with any questions about the arbitration process. The arbitrator shall issue a reasoned decision. The arbitrator’s decision shall be final and binding upon the Company, Worker, and any other parties to the arbitration. To the extent there is a conflict between the terms of this FAIR Program and the Rules, the terms of this FAIR Program will govern, unless application of such terms would cause the AAA to decline to provide its services, in which case the Rules will govern (but in no circumstance will an arbitrator have the authority to hear or decide any Covered Dispute on a class, collective, or other group or representative basis). Such arbitration shall take place in County of Bergen, State of New Jersey. Service Seeker consents to the jurisdiction of these courts for these purposes and waives any and all defenses to such jurisdiction (including, but not limited to, defenses related to personal jurisdiction or convenience of the forum). The arbitrator must apply the substantive law, including the applicable burdens of proof and persuasion that would be applied by a court hearing the Covered Dispute in the venue where the alleged violation occurred. The arbitrator may grant any relief that could be granted by a court hearing the Covered Dispute, but will not have any authority to grant any other relief or otherwise limit or expand any substantive rights that would otherwise be available. Arbitration proceedings under this Section 15 shall comply with and be governed by the provisions of the Federal Arbitration Act and not by any state law concerning arbitration.
- Compelling Arbitration/Enforcing Award. Either Party may ask a court to stay any court proceeding, to compel arbitration under this Section 15, and to confirm, vacate, or enforce an arbitration award. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
- Cost of Arbitration. The parties will be responsible for the arbitrator’s fees and expenses, with each party paying 50% of the arbitrator’s fees and expenses. Each Party shall pay its own costs and attorneys’ fees, if any. However, if any party to an arbitration proceeding prevails on a statutory claim that affords the prevailing party attorneys’ fees and costs, or if there is a written agreement providing for attorneys’ fees and costs, the arbitrator may award reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs in accordance with the applicable statute or written agreement. The arbitrator shall resolve any dispute as to the reasonableness of any fee or cost that may be awarded under this paragraph.
- No Group/Class/Collective Claims or Consolidation of Claims. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, Service Provider, on behalf of itself and any successors or parties in interest, expressly intends and agrees that: (i) class action, collective action, and representative action procedures shall not be asserted, nor will they apply, in any arbitration pursuant to this Section 15 against Us or any Service Seeker; (ii) Service Provider will not assert any claim on a class, collective, or other representative basis against Us or any Service Seeker; and (iii) Service Provider shall only submit its own individual claims in arbitration and will not seek to represent the interests of any other person or entity. Further, Service Provider expressly intends and agrees that any claims not be joined, consolidated, or heard together with claims of any other person or entity. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the AAA’s Rules, the arbitrator shall have no jurisdiction or authority to compel any class or collective claim, to consolidate different arbitration proceedings or to join any other party to an arbitration between Service Provider and Us and/or any Service Seeker. The validity and effect of this Section 15 shall be determined exclusively by a court and not by an arbitrator. Service Provider understands and fully agrees that by signing this Terms of Service, they are giving up their constitutional right to have a trial by jury, and they are also giving up their normal rights of appeal following the rendering of the arbitrator’s award except as applicable law provides for judicial review of arbitration proceedings.
- The provisions of this Section 15 shall survive the termination of the Terms of Service and the termination of the Service Provider’s employment with the Service Seeker, whichever occurs first.
