You also consent to our communicating with you about the Service or in connection with the features, functions and activities contained therein by SMS, text message, email or other electronic means. Your carrier’s normal, messaging, data and other rates and fees will apply to these communications.
By using the Service, you understand and agree that Sittercity may rely on the above Eligibility Conditions representations and warranties as true. You understand and agree that Sittercity may revise the Eligibility Conditions from time to time and require new conditions and certifications and that you will abide by such revised Eligibility Conditions or discontinue using the Service and uninstall the App and you must discontinue use of the Service if at any time you no longer meet the Eligibility Conditions. If Sittercity becomes aware of or believes that there are violations of the Eligibility Conditions by any User or that the User has otherwise provided any false or misleading information, it may, among other things, suspend and/or terminate such User with or without notice at its sole discretion. If your account is terminated or suspended, you agree to make no further use of the Service after termination or during suspension.
You understand and agree that Sittercity does not routinely verify that any or all of the Eligibility Conditions are met by any other Users and you further understand and agree that Sittercity is not responsible for assuring that the Eligibility Conditions are met or for any failure to suspend, terminate or prevent the use of the Service by Users who do not meet the Eligibility Conditions. You understand and agree that you are solely responsible for conducting any appropriate background checks and obtaining references and that you make your own evaluations, decisions and assessments about whether to engage other Users to perform services, accept any engagements offered by other Users or otherwise interact with other Users. Sittercity hereby expressly disclaims, and you hereby expressly release Sittercity from, any and all liability whatsoever for any controversies, claims, suits, injuries, loss, harm or damages arising from or in any way related to: (x) any inaccuracy, untimeliness or incompleteness of a User’s Eligibility Conditions; and (y) any misstatements or misrepresentations made by any Users.
You understand and agree not to, and not to permit or encourage anyone else to, do any of the following in connection with the Service:
You represent and warrant that you are the owner or licensee or otherwise have the right to post or submit such User Content, and you grant to Sittercity an irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive, fully paid, worldwide, sublicensable license to use, copy, perform, display, reproduce, adapt, modify, prepare derivative of, and distribute such User Content and to incorporate such User Content into other works.
Although Sittercity has no obligation to do so, Sittercity reserves the right, and has absolute discretion, to remove, screen or edit User Content posted or stored on the Service at any time and for any reason without notice, and you are solely responsible for creating backup copies of and replacing User Content you post or store on the Service at your sole cost and expense.
You hereby consent to the collection, use and disclosure of the information in the Consumer Reports. You understand and agree that Sittercity may, in its sole discretion, review and rely on the information in the Consumer Reports in deciding whether to suspend or terminate a User or to investigate a complaint about a User, but that Sittercity shall not be responsible or liable in any way in the event that any information in the Consumer Reports about any person, including without limitation you or any other User, is not accurate, timely or complete. If you are the subject of a Consumer Report, you may contact the applicable third-party consumer reporting agency to dispute the accuracy, timeliness or completeness of such information. Sittercity reserves the right to suspend and/or terminate you or other Users based on information in the Consumer Reports or for any other reason, or no reason, in Sittercity’s sole discretion.
Note the following limitations in Consumer Reports: Sittercity does not automatically run Consumer Reports on any Users. Records not available to third-party consumer reporting agencies will not be included in the results. Not all arrest logs and records, conviction and correction records, sex offender registries and motor vehicle records are available in all jurisdictions. In many jurisdictions there is a delay before arrest logs and records, conviction and correction records, sex offender registries and motor vehicle records are included in Consumer Reports. Juvenile records and offenses for minors may not appear in the public record and are therefore not included in the results. Dismissed cases, arrests not resulting in convictions, arrests or convictions from foreign countries and nolle pros will not be reported. Traffic violations are not included unless a jurisdiction reports them as criminal offenses. In the jurisdictions where traffic violations are reported as criminal offenses, such traffic violations may be included in the results as misdemeanors or felonies.
Sittercity may use third-party payment processing services to process credit card payments and information in connection with the payment of membership fees and other amounts payable in connection with the Service. Sittercity hereby expressly disclaims, and you hereby expressly release Sittercity from, any and all liability whatsoever for any controversies, claims, suits, injuries, loss, harm and/or damages arising from and/or in any way related to Sittercity’s use of third-party payment processing services, including without limitation for any damage that may result should any such information be released to any third parties. For further information about Sittercity’s use of payment processing services, please contact Sittercity by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sittercity may offer limited-time, free trial memberships or other promotions from time to time. In some cases, which will be disclosed at the time of sign-up, these promotions may automatically convert to Paid Memberships if you do not cancel within a designated time frame. In such instances, if you continue you membership after the end of the free trial or promotional period, you will be charged the price then in effect. To avoid such charges, you must cancel your membership prior to the end of the free trial or promotional period by calling Sittercity at 1-866-205-5625 FREE, by emailing at email@example.com, or through your account settings.
You further agree not to collect User Content or any other information, materials or content obtained through the Service, including without limitation names, phone numbers, email addresses, profiles, copyrighted text, or job listings, or otherwise misuse or misappropriate information, materials or content, or any information obtained through use of the Service, using manual or automated means, including without limitation though web scraping, without express written permission from Sittercity.

The arbitration shall be conducted in Chicago, Illinois, and judgment of the arbitration award may be entered by any court having jurisdiction thereof. Sittercity may seek any interim or preliminary relief from a court of competent jurisdiction in Chicago, Illinois, necessary to protect its rights pending the completion of arbitration. You agree to submit yourself to the personal jurisdiction of the State of Illinois.
Each party will pay its own attorneys’ fees, subject to any remedies to which that party may later be entitled under applicable law. You will bear only those costs of arbitration that you would have borne had you brought a claim covered by this arbitration provision in court. If you demonstrate to the arbitrator that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Sittercity will pay as much of the arbitration fees as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, disputes may be brought before an administrative agency to the extent applicable law requires access to an agency notwithstanding the existence of this arbitration provision. Nothing in this arbitration provision shall be construed to: (i) relieve any party of the duty to exhaust administrative remedies by filing a charge or complaint with an administrative agency and obtaining a right to sue notice, where otherwise required by law; or (ii) prevent either party from cooperating with a federal or state body as required by law. However, you understand that you are not entitled to a double recovery or eligible to receive any monetary benefit from any action brought by an administrative agency except as required by law.
