Kiddocare’s Terms Of Service And Reminders For The Client

Acknowledgement

You understand that we, Kiddocare, are a platform that facilitates the contract of caring services between you and the carer directly, and we are not the provider of the service to you or your child and we will not be liable to you directly for such services. By making payment and subscribing to the services provided by the carer, you agree to these terms and the full Terms of Use (including the Frequently Asked Questions) available on our website at www.kiddocare.my.

Carer’s Jobscope

Carers are babysitters, they will keep your child company and keep them safe, as well as ensure they are fed, clothed, bathed and oversee their daily routine (as per your instruction), toilet use, bedtime and playtime. The carer may engage in activities such as reading, arts, and playing in ways that is safe, and time that is suitable to the child.

Carers do not do housework, do not cook or prepare meals (but will prepare milk, cereals, heat up prepared food). They do not provide tuition or teaching, do not take care of pets, the elderly or the infirm. They also do not pick up or send off children.

Booking Time Blocks

Bookings made and paid for are for specific hourly time blocks (2,4,6,8), and cannot be broken into segments. The carer’s service must be used at one go and any rescheduling postponement and replacement service must also be of the same number of time blocks within the period of validity.

Cancellation

If you cancel the job after payment before or after we assign a carer to you, you may keep the booking as credit and redeem the session within the period of validity. If you cancel 24 hours or less before the job is scheduled to start, the session will be forfeited. If a carer cancels her service after payment is made, we will attempt to find a reasonable replacement carer for you. If such a replacement is not available, we will keep the session as credit. However, if we find a replacement carer, and you chose not to accept, the session will be kept as credit.

Rescheduling

You may reschedule the carer’s service with more than 24 hours’ notice, subject to a rescheduling charge of RM20. However, the duration of the carer’s service cannot be changed. If you decide to change the duration to a shorter time, no credit will be given. For time extensions upon rescheduling, extension rates will apply at RM25/hour.

No rescheduling will be allowed with less than 24 hours’ notice before the job is scheduled to start. If you decide to cancel after rescheduling, the cancellation terms will apply.

Extension

Do inform us if you will be late, or in need of an extension. We will issue you a payment link for the requested extension hour. Extension requests should be made at least 1 hour before the job is over. Carer is not obliged to extend her service if the payment is not received; or if she has prior commitments, or for whatever reason.

The extension rate payable by you is RM25/hour during service hours of 7 am to 12 midnight. For service beyond those hours, the extension rate will be charged at RM40/hour.

Change of location

Service by the carer is only performed at the location specified during booking. Any change in location must be notified to us with at least 24 hours’ notice. We will try to accommodate your request, subject to the carer’s availability and consent, but you may have to top up additional transportation costs as reasonably determined by us. If you notify the change in location with less than 24 hours’ notice, we may not be able to accommodate your request. If you decide to cancel for this reason, cancellation terms will apply.

Refusal of service

If asked to perform a task beyond their jobscope stated in the booking form, carers may refuse the task. If the requested task involves false information from the client, harassment, intimidation or danger to any person, or the child in her care, she can also decline to continue the service immediately, and the job will be cancelled without replacement or refund.

Carers may refuse duties or locations that contravene or violate religious sensitivities. Clients that do not adhere to these conditions will be barred from our services.

Absent/Uncontactable Client

If, after the carer arrives at the service address, the client is not available to grant access or meet up with the carer, and fails to respond to query via phone call or WhatsApp, the carer will wait for 45 minutes, in excess of 45 minutes the carer can leave the service address and, the service is considered forfeit, with no refunds given.

Collection and Processing of Personal Data

You agree and consent to us and/or the carer using and processing the personal data (including sensitive personal data) of yours and your child. By making payment and subscribing to the service provided by the carer, you are deemed to have consented to our collection and processing of personal data in accordance to our personal data protection policy available at www.kiddocare.my.
