19. SUBSCRIPTION POLICY.
We actively balance new Family/Parent, Care Provider, and Agency member sign-ups to ensure our community is effective for all members. Due to this balancing system, we have specific terms and conditions for all memberships/subscriptions:
(a) Monthly: The subscription starts after the initial payment is processed. Subscription will continue without renewal notice until canceled by the user. The monthly subscription rate is subject to change, but you will be notified of any modifications to your monthly rate with the option to cancel in accordance with these terms. Your initial payment and subsequent membership renewal payments are non-refundable. Cancel your subscription at any time after the initial payment is paid by visiting your account page or by contacting us here within three (3) days prior to your monthly billing date; otherwise, the cancellation will be effective from the next monthly billing date.
(b) Annual: The subscription starts after the initial payment is processed. Your initial payment and subsequent membership renewal payments are non-refundable. You will be charged the annual rate stated at the time of purchase as one lump sum. Your subscription will renew automatically, on your annual renewal date, until you cancel. An email reminding you that your subscription will renew is sent 30 days before your annual renewal date. If you did not receive the email reminder, please contact us immediately. The annual subscription rate is subject to change, but you will be notified of any modifications to your annual rate with the option to cancel in accordance with these terms.

(d) Learning Guide Service: Access starts after the initial payment is processed. Nanny Parent Connection will search, present and complete due diligence for one (1) Learning Guide candidate for your family or microschool. Due to the extensive number of hours and resources that our team commits to your search, refunds are only issued in two cases:
– If, within 24 hours of purchasing access to our Learning Guide Service, you decide that this service will not work for you, or;
– If our team has not presented any Learning Guide candidates to you within thirty (30) days from the date that you purchased access to the Learning Guide Service.
If any of the above events have occurred, immediately contact us via email by clicking here with your name, email address, mailing address and transaction number (found at the bottom of the emailed receipt that was sent to you after purchasing). We will issue you a full and complete refund of your Learning Guide access fee within four (4) to six (6) business days.
20. BACKGROUND CHECKS.
By entering my name, billing address and email address on the Background Check order webpages, I understand and agree that I am providing electronic authorization and consent to Nanny Parent Connection and Sterling (our background check processor) to process the background check I have selected. I also understand that by marking the check box that I agree to these Terms and Conditions on the Background Check order webpages, I am stating that I have read and consent to these Terms and Conditions and the Notice to Users of Consumer Reports document.
Recognizing that information in background check reports is secured from and processed by fallible sources (human and otherwise) and that for the fee charged Nanny Parent Connection cannot be either an insurer or a guarantor of the accuracy of the information reported. You release Nanny Parent Connection and its affiliates and the officers, agents, employees, and independent contractors from liability for any negligence of third party furnishers of information in connection with erroneous information provided by such third parties.
(a) Payment and Refunds: The background check process begins immediately after the payment is processed. Once the background check order has been authorized by the candidate, the payment is non-refundable. If your candidate declines to authorize the background check order, contact us here to request a credit or refund. A credit or refund can only be issued within ninety (90) days of the date the background check was purchased.

(c) Vetted Candidate Guarantee: If you purchase a Standard, Premium or Premium Plus background check from our site and upon receiving the completed background check report, find that the candidate was convicted of any of the below listed offenses, contact us here to request a credit for a future background check order of equal or lesser value. Include your name, the name of your candidate, purchase date, and a copy of your receipt with your credit request.
