“We Need A Nanny” is operated by Ceruleum Pty Ltd ACN 630 394 419 (WNAN, we, us, our). We provide an online job notice board for Carers and Care Seekers with a searchable database of Carer Profiles and advertisements for work opportunities, along with an online information forum (Services). These Terms and Conditions of Use (the Terms and Conditions) apply to your use of the Services located at https://www.weneedananny.com.au/ (Site).
You accept these Terms and Conditions when you use the Site, so please read them carefully. If you don’t agree with them, please don’t use our Site.
We will make changes to these Terms and Conditions from time to time. Those changes apply from the date we publish an updated version of the Terms and Conditions on the Site.
You must be 18 years of age or older to use the Site and you must live in an Australian state or territory (other than South Australia or Tasmania).
Carers may create a Profile for Carer Services, describe their skill set, training, qualifications, prior experience and type of employment opportunity they are seeking and contact Care Seekers through the Site.
Care Seekers may create a Job Listing, view Carer Profiles, and contact Carers through the Site.
WNAN is not a referrer or booking agent, or an employment agency and does not have any employment, partnership, or agency affiliation with any user. WNAN is not involved in or a party to any arrangement, including a contractual or employment arrangement, entered into between two users. WNAN receives no compensation in connection with users entering into a private arrangement, other than the WNAN subscription fee paid in respect of our Services.
To become a Carer or Care Seeker, you must become a Registered User by making an account.
You can register for an account and create a user name and password (Account). You must keep your username and/or password for that account confidential and secure.
You agree to provide us with accurate, complete, and current registration information. Accounts must be held by individuals and you must participate under your own name.
You are responsible for all activity on your Account. We rely on you to notify us if you become aware of any unauthorised use of or access to your Account. If you lose access to your Account or request information about your Account, we may ask you to provide information to help us verify your identity.
You can browse most of the Site for free. For example:
However, to access some other Site features, you must either make a one-time payment or upgrade to a WNAN subscription by making a recurring monthly payment (Subscription Fee).
Payments are accepted by credit card and using the payment portal eWay. When making a payment by credit card, the User warrants that the information provided to WNAN is true, accurate and complete, that the User is authorised to use the debit or credit card to make the payment, that the payment will be honoured by the card issuer, and that the User will maintain sufficient funds in the account to cover the purchase price.
If you choose to upgrade to a subscription, WNAN will automatically charge the Subscription Fee using your nominated payment method each month. It is your responsibility to check your credit card for any monthly charges from WNAN. You can cancel a subscription at any time but you will not receive a pro-rata refund of a Subscription Fee in respect of the subscription’s unused Site access period.
If you dispute a WNAN Subscription Fee, you must contact WNAN within 21 days of the date the charge posted to your account. Any disputed charge notified to WNAN more than 21 days after posting, will not be refunded, regardless of whether you have accessed our Site during that time period.
Each User is entitled to a one-time 30-day money back guarantee. If you are dissatisfied with the Services and wish to receive your money back, you must email firstname.lastname@example.org before the end of the 30th day from the date the first subscription payment is received by WNAN and we will refund your subscription payment in full.
We will provide a full refund after the 30-day guarantee period if you experience a major problem with this service.
We cannot promise that the Site and its functionality will always be available or error free.

Notwithstanding clause 4, we do not warrant that we have verified the qualifications and experience of any Carer as stated in their Profile or Job Listing or confirm the accuracy of any User Content.
