Contact Information Access Limitations

For security and the protection of our users, access to caregiver contact information has some reasonable limitations. You may only access the contact information of fifteen new caregivers ever day. Access to caregiver contact information and references may or may not be limited to a thirty (30) mile radius of your sign-up address. You may be required to send a message to a caregiver, rather than accessing their direct contact info. This is for security purposes, so that the communication can be moderated to prevent spam and abuse of our system. This is especially true for free members. Paid members may or may not have such restrictions. Caregiver contact information and references are available to paying members on caregiver profiles by default, but caregivers have the ability to require that you request their permission first before accessing that information.

Background Checks and Identity Verification

BabysittersRegistry.com may use a third-party verification service available to Care Seekers and Care Providers. Care Seekers and Care Providers may use this service to verify information such as, but not limited to, name, address, social security number, and criminal background. Use of a third-party verification service is voluntary. If you decide to use or access information provided by a third-party verification service offered through the Site, you do hereby represent, understand and expressly agree that BabysittersRegistry.com is a conduit for the third-party verification service and does not have control over or assume any responsibility for the quality, accuracy, or reliability of the information provided by the third-party verification service. In addition, you understand that BabysittersRegistry.com may review the information provided by the third-party verification service and that BabysittersRegistry.com retains the right to terminate your BabysittersRegistry.com membership based on the information.

An emblem will appear directly on a caregiver’s profile when the background check is clean. If it is not clean, BabysittersRegistry.com’s staff will decide whether to put the emblem on a caregiver’s profile based on the seriousness of the items in your background check. The emblem or the way in which we show users that you have a background check may change in the future.

Some details of your background check will be made available to users of the site. Each user that would like in depth details of your background check will be required to ask for your permission electronically before access to those details will be provided.

If a caregiver you are interested in doesn’t have a Background Check and/or Identity Verification, you can ask the sitter to complete one or both. You can also optionally pay for the Background Check and/or Identity Verification for the caregiver. You credit card will be authorized, but not charged until the caregiver submits the necessary information to process the request. Once you authorize this credit card transaction, we will allow you to cancel it unless the caregiver has already begun to fill out the request to submit it.
