Effective date: March 1, 2024
Welcome to Bumo, a service provided by Parc Ventures Inc., also known as “Bumo”. The following Terms and Conditions of Service (“Terms” or “Agreement”) govern your use of the Bumo website, applications and other offerings and services from Bumo (collectively, the “Bumo Platform”, “Platform” or “Services”). By accessing or using the Bumo Platform, you represent that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by these Terms, including any future modifications. Please read them carefully before using the Bumo Platform.
Users of the Bumo Platform can publish, offer, search for and book on-demand child care services. Users who publish and offer child care services, which includes but is not limited to infant child care, toddler child care, preschool, school-age classes, after school classes, learning and enrichment programs, and forest schools, are “Providers” and Users who search for, book or use child care services are called “Families.”
By using the Bumo Platform, you represent and warrant that you are at least 18 years old and have the legal authority to enter into binding contracts.
Does Bumo Platform cost anything?
Though many of our Services are currently free, Bumo reserves the right to charge for certain or all Services in the future. You shall pay all applicable fees, as described on the Bumo website in connection with the Services selected by you. Bumo reserves the right to change its price list and to institute new charges at any time, upon notice to you, which may be sent by email or posted on the website. Your use of the Services following such notification constitutes your acceptance of any new or increased charges.
Booking and Payments
Families can browse child care providers, view availability, and make bookings through the Bumo Platform. Payments for bookings are processed securely through Bumo’s third-party payment partner, Stripe. Families agree to pay the total amount displayed for the booking, including any applicable taxes and fees. Bumo may charge service fees related to the use of the Bumo Platform.
Providers create listings on the Bumo platform, including information about their services, availability, and rates. Providers are responsible for maintaining and updating their Provider pages with the most current information to best service the families looking for child care. Providers shall not engage in any fraudulent, deceptive, or malicious activities on the Bumo Platform. Providers acknowledge that any violations may result in suspension or termination of their account.
Providers operating under the Bumo name are independent entities and may not be directly owned or operated by Bumo. As such, Bumo holds no liability for the operations, services, and care provided by these independent Providers. This includes, but is not limited to, matters concerning the health and safety of staff members and children under their care.
When Providers accept a booking request, or receive a booking confirmation through the Bumo Platform, Providers enter into a contract directly with the Family and agree to deliver their child care service under the terms and at the price specified on their Provider page. Providers also agree to pay applicable fees, like Bumo’s service fee and taxes, for each booking. Any terms, policies or conditions that Providers include in any supplemental contract with Families must: (i) be consistent with these Terms, and the information provided on their Provider page, and (ii) be prominently disclosed in their Provider description.
Families acknowledge that Bumo does not endorse or guarantee the quality, safety, or legality of any Provider or their services. Bumo does not guarantee the accuracy of the information provided by the Providers on their pages.
Families engaging with Providers agree that Bumo disclaims all responsibility for the activities and quality of care of such Providers. Families are solely responsible for thoroughly assessing each Provider before booking.
Provider Verification and Disclaimer
Safety and quality are paramount at Bumo. While Bumo reviews and assesses the Providers listed on the Bumo Platform, Families are solely responsible for conducting their own assessment of each Provider prior to booking and ultimately bear the burden of ensuring that the Provider meets their preferences and needs.
Families understand and acknowledge that they are fully responsible for independently verifying the accuracy of any information about a Provider accessible through www.bumo.com, reviewing a Provider’s policies and terms of enrollment, and evaluating a Provider’s facilities and ability to provide care. FAMILIES AGREE THAT THEIR USE OF THE BUMO PLATFORM AND ANY PROVIDER’S SERVICES WILL BE AT THEIR SOLE RISK. Bumo does not guarantee or endorse the quality, safety, conduct, legality, or suitability of any Provider, and families accept responsibility for their choices.
Bumo may list exempt Providers, distinct from government-monitored licensed locations. These exempt sites offer services within a different regulatory framework. Families are required to conduct thorough research when choosing between exempt and non-exempt locations. Notably, exempt Providers might not undergo the same level of government oversight as licensed counterparts. Families are solely responsible for evaluating the implications of opting for an exempt Provider in comparison to licensed options.
Provider Price Change
Providers listed on the Bumo Platform retain the prerogative to modify their availability and rates at their discretion, without prior notice. Bumo is not accountable for such alterations and holds no responsibility for any inconvenience or discrepancy arising from them. Families are responsible for engaging directly with Providers to obtain the most up-to-date information regarding availability and rate.
Cancellations and Refunds
We have a 72-hour cancellation policy; that is, Families must cancel at least 72 hours before the start time of any session. Rescheduling a session counts as a cancellation. Families must cancel only through their dashboard. We do not accept any phone, text, or direct email cancellations. If Families cancel within less than 72 hours of their booked session’s start time or no show, they are not eligible for a refund or make-up session. If Families cancel before 72-hours of the start of your sessions, they will be given BumoCredit in the amount paid. However, we do not, under any circumstance, offer monetary refunds directly to the cardholder.
We issue the BumoCredit to Families who purchase it. It allows you to load a dollar value onto your BumoCredit Balance for use at participating Bumo network locations (“locations”). The dollar value that you load onto your BumoCredit is a prepayment for the goods and services at participating locations. We offer BumoCredit to make it easier for you to book child care with us and to make your relationship with us more rewarding. Unless otherwise required by law or permitted by this Agreement, the dollar value on your BumoCredit is nonrefundable and may not be redeemed for cash. The value on your BumoCredit is not insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), nor does it earn interest.
Most Bumo locations in North America accept BumoCredit. Certain Bumo locations may not permit Families to use BumoCredit for payment. To find out if a store will accept BumoCredit as a payment method, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
BumoCredit is not targeted towards, nor intended for use by, anyone under the age of 13. If you are between the ages of 13 and 18, you may only use BumoCredit under the supervision of a parent or legal guardian who agrees to be bound by this Agreement.
Loading BumoCredit on Your Account
Families may load their card online through their account. If you use a credit or debit card to purchase or reload your BumoCredit, prior to charging your credit or debit card, an authorization process will occur for the amount of the purchase or reload transaction (“Transaction”). The authorization process will validate the credit or debit card number, status, available credit or funds and billing information to ensure that it matches what the bank or card company has on file. The bank or Bumo may attempt to contact you for additional information prior to authorizing the Transaction amount.
For credit cards, once an authorization is received, Families may notice a decrease in their available credit line. Your bank may hold this dollar amount from your credit line or available balance for a short period of time determined by the policy of the bank before the Transaction is fulfilled. For debit cards, the bank may pre-authorize a charge to your deposit or checking account and place a temporary hold on the funds before the Transaction is fulfilled. Regardless of whether you use a credit or debit card, your card will be charged only upon fulfillment of the Transaction. If the Transaction is cancelled, Bumo will request an authorization reversal on your behalf. Reversal times may vary. We recommend contacting your bank or credit card company to learn about their authorization and authorization reversal policies.
Families may auto-reload their BumoCredit Card through their profile. With automatic reload, you simply set the balance at which you want to reload your BumoCredit and provide us with payment information. We will send you an email confirming the reload Transaction terms and bill your credit card or debit card according to the schedule and amount you have selected. We will also send you an email after each reload to let you know your BumoCredit has been reloaded. You can change your reload preferences at any time, but changes may take up to twenty-four (24) hours to go into effect. Once the dollar value is loaded, the Transaction cannot be reversed.
From time to time, we may in our sole discretion, run promotional programs associated with the BumoCredit program (“Promotions”). Such Promotions are subject to these terms, as well as additional terms as indicated in connection with the Promotions. We reserve the right to modify the terms of any Promotion at any time, including and up to terminating the Promotion.
Fees and Expiration of Card Balances
We do not charge any activation, service, dormancy or inactivity fees in connection with your BumoCredit. Your BumoCredit has no expiration date nor does the value on your BumoCredit ever expire, with the exception of BumoCredit granted as part of an enterprise program, explained further below. Enterprise employee programs usually come with expiring BumoCredit and are governed according to separate agreements between Bumo and each enterprise client which take precedence over the terms outlined here.
BumoCredit packages purchased by Families or companies through our enterprise programs are considered non-refundable under any circumstances. Once acquired, these packages cannot be subject to reimbursement. It is important to note that any BumoCredit issued by Bumo as part of its enterprise program, may have an expiration date. Families using BumoCredit provided by their employer, should be mindful of this expiration period and ensure its utilization within the specified timeframe. BumoCredit past its expiration will disappear from one’s account and cannot be used. Cancellation and refund policies stated above apply to BumoCredit usage as well. However, users may not receive refunded credit, even if they are within the accepted cancellation window, if the BumoCredit they used has expired. BumoCredit expiration policy trumps the cancellation and refund policies.
Receipts and Transaction History
When you use your BumoCredit, we will provide a receipt if you request one. The receipt will indicate that the purchase was made using a BumoCredit and will provide the remaining balance of your BumoCredit. Please check your online Transaction history regularly to ensure that your Transaction history and account balance are correct. You can check the balance of your BumoCredit on your profile page. The account balance for a BumoCredit also will appear when you check out online upon booking a child care session.
Billing Errors, Corrections
We will correct the balance of your BumoCredit if we believe that a clerical, billing, or accounting error occurred. If you have questions regarding your Transaction history or any correction, or if you wish to dispute any Transaction or correction that has been applied to your BumoCredit, please email email@example.com. Assuming you provide sufficient details, we will review your claim and tell you what we find. We will correct any errors promptly after we finish our review. If we do not find any errors, we will explain what we found. We have no obligation to review or correct any billing error unless you provide us sufficient notice for us to review your claim within sixty (60) days of the date of the Transaction in question.
Fraud Associated with Your BumoCredit
We will not accept any BumoCredit, or will limit use of any BumoCredit or BumoCredit balance, if we reasonably believe that the use is unauthorized, fraudulent or otherwise unlawful, and we consider such action appropriate to limit our risk. Bumo does not control who may purchase BumoCredit. Consequently, Bumo has no liability to you for any third-party fraud or unlawful activity associated with any BumoCredit balance. If Bumo discovers any BumoCredit balance was sourced or derived from fraud or other unlawful means, we may in our sole discretion, cancel all impacted child care sessions and balances. We may use retained BumoCredit balances to help offset our liability to card companies, networks and issuers of lost or stolen credit and debit cards used to purchase or load BumoCredit.
Registration, Liability for Unauthorized Transactions
You are responsible for: (a) the accuracy of all information that you provide to us; and (b) maintaining the confidentiality and security of your BumoCredit information. All of your BumoCredit can be activated and registered for use in your Bumo account, but you may only maintain one (1) such account at any time.
You should treat your BumoCredit like cash and not disclose your BumoCredit information to anyone. You are responsible for all transactions on your BumoCredit, including unauthorized transactions. If your BumoCredit and account information has been compromised, notify us immediately. We will freeze the remaining balance on your BumoCredit at the time you notify us and will load that remaining balance on a new account.
Bumo Gift Card
The Bumo Gift Card program allows you to purchase and send a virtual Bumo Gift Card via email, or via certain social media and messaging platforms. You may choose the dollar value (within certain limits) and complete your purchase using a credit card, debit card, or certain other electronic payment methods. You authorize us to charge your credit card, debit card or other chosen electronic payment method at the time you purchase your Bumo Gift Card.
We will send the recipient of your Bumo Gift Card an email notifying them that they have received a Bumo Gift Card from you. The recipient will have the option of adding the Bumo Gift Card to their Bumo account or transferring the balance onto an existing BumoCredit balance.
Referral Program for Families
Prohibited Activities: Users are prohibited from engaging in any fraudulent or deceptive activities in connection with the referral program. This includes, but is not limited to, creating multiple accounts, using fake information, or engaging in any other activity that may manipulate or abuse the referral system.
We reserve the right to verify the legitimacy of referred accounts and transactions. Any accounts or transactions found to be in violation of our terms may result in the forfeiture of referral rewards and potential account suspension.
Right to Modify or Terminate

- Be Respectful and Constructive: Please maintain a respectful and constructive tone when writing reviews. Focus on your experience with the daycare, preschool, or learning program, rather than attacking individuals or staff members. Do not use derogatory language, offensive comments, or engage in personal attacks. We encourage positive and helpful discussions.
- Focus on the Care Experience: Reviews should primarily focus on your personal experience with the daycare, preschool, or learning program. Share your insights, observations, and any concerns related to the care and educational experience provided. Avoid discussing unrelated topics, such as personal biases, political views, or unrelated incidents.
- Protect Privacy: Do not include the full names of staff or teachers in your reviews. If you need to reference specific individuals, please use their first names only and keep your comments respectful. Respect the privacy of other users and avoid sharing personal information about individuals, including children.
- Be Honest and Accurate: Share honest and accurate information about your experience. Provide details that can help other parents make informed decisions about childcare and educational programs. Avoid posting fake or fraudulent reviews, as this undermines the integrity of our platform.
- Avoid Bias and Discrimination: Do not discriminate against individuals or groups based on factors such as race, gender, religion, nationality, or socioeconomic status. We promote inclusivity and fairness. Keep your reviews unbiased and considerate of diverse perspectives.
- Use Appropriate Language: Ensure your language is appropriate for all audiences. Avoid using profanity, hate speech, or offensive content in your reviews or comments. If you have concerns about inappropriate content in a review, please report it to our team using email@example.com.
- Respect Copyright and Ownership: Do not post content that violates copyright or intellectual property rights. Only share content that you have the right to use, such as photos and text. Provide proper attribution when quoting or referencing external sources.
- Report Violations: If you come across a review or user that violates our community guidelines, please report it to our team at firstname.lastname@example.org. We rely on the community’s help to maintain a safe and respectful environment.
- Be Transparent: If you have a personal or financial interest in a daycare, preschool, or learning program you are reviewing, disclose it in your review to maintain transparency.

Limitation of Liability
Bumo is not liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential, or punitive damages arising out of or in connection with the use of the platform.
BUMO IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR (I) THE SERVICES PROVIDED BY ANY PROVIDER, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION CHILD CARE SERVICES, PROGRAMMING OFFERED BY A PROVIDER, OR THE PROVIDER FACILITIES, (II) ANY PROVIDER’S PROMOTIONAL OR MARKETING ACTIVITIES, OR (III) A PROVIDER’S USE OF BUMO’S INVOICING AND PAYMENT SERVICES, INCLUDING ANY AMOUNTS INVOICED BY BUMO ON BEHALF OF, OR AT THE DIRECTION OF, A PROVIDER.

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, BUMO DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, IN CONNECTION WITH THE BUMO PLATFORM AND YOUR USE THEREOF, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. BUMO MAKES NO WARRANTIES OR REPRESENTATIONS ABOUT THE ACCURACY OR COMPLETENESS OF ANY CONTENT CONTAINED WITHIN THE BUMO PLATFORM, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION CONTENT ABOUT A PROVIDER’S OPERATIONS, OR THE CONTENT OF ANY WEBSITES LINKED TO THE SITE AND SERVICES.
Changes to Terms

Intellectual Property and User Representation
Unless otherwise indicated, the Bumo Platform comprise Bumo’s proprietary property and all source code, databases, functionality, software, website designs, audio, video, text, photographs, graphics, trademarks, service marks, and logos (the “Bumo IP”) are owned or controlled by Bumo and are protected by copyright and trademark laws and various other intellectual property rights and unfair competition laws of the United States, foreign jurisdictions, and international conventions. The Bumo IP contained within the Bumo Platform, as well as any other information contained within the Bumo Platform, is provided “AS IS” for your information and personal use only. Except as expressly provided within these Terms, no part of the Bumo Platform and no Bumo IP may be copied, reproduced, aggregated, republished, uploaded, posted, publicly displayed, encoded, translated, transmitted, distributed, sold, licensed, or otherwise exploited for any commercial purpose whatsoever, without Bumo’s express prior written consent. Bumo reserves all rights not expressly granted to you herein in and to the Bumo Platform and Bumo IP. By using the Bumo Platform, you represent and warrant that: (1) all registration information you Submit, either on behalf of a Subscriber, User, or Provider, will be true, accurate, current, and complete; (2) you will maintain the accuracy of such information and promptly update such registration information as necessary; (3) you have the legal capacity and you agree to comply with these Terms; (4) you are not a minor in the jurisdiction in which you reside; (5) you will not access the Bumo Platform through automated or non-human means, whether through a bot, script, or otherwise; (6) you will not use the website or any of the Bumo Platform for any illegal or unauthorized purpose; and (7) your use of the Bumo Platform will not violate any applicable law or regulation. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, Bumo has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Bumo Platform (or any portion thereof).
Allergies and Medication
Effective communication is vital for the well-being of every child. In cases of allergies or medication requirements, Families are solely responsible for directly engaging with the Provider to establish appropriate protocols. Mere notation of allergies or medications on user profiles is insufficient due to the seriousness of allergies and the proper administration of medications. Ensuring the safety of the child necessitates clear and direct communication with the Provider to guarantee accurate understanding and implementation of necessary procedures. Families must take proactive steps to inform Providers of relevant medical information to minimize risks and safeguard the child’s health during their care.
Child Privacy Terms and Conditions
This Child Privacy Terms and Conditions outlines our commitment to protecting the privacy of children using our platform. Please read these terms carefully before using our services.
Data Collection and Use
Personal Information: Bumo collects limited personal information from children, including names, ages, and contact details, solely for the purpose of providing our on-demand child care services. We do not collect more personal information than necessary to fulfill the requested service.
Use of Information: The collected data is used to facilitate bookings, ensure child safety, and maintain communication with parents. We do not share this information with third parties without verifiable parental consent.
Parental Consent Process: Bumo requires verifiable parental consent before collecting, using, or disclosing personal information from children under the age of 13. Parents are required to provide consent through methods such as email verification or phone confirmation. Bumo acknowledges that providers might capture photos or videos of children under their care. However, Bumo holds no authority over the timing or occurrence of such actions, which may lead to their subsequent posting on public platforms or sharing with third parties. Bumo strongly discourages providers from engaging in these activities without obtaining explicit permission from the child’s parent or guardian. While Bumo strives to ensure a secure environment, Families should understand that controlling these actions falls outside our purview. It is advised that parents or guardians communicate their preferences clearly to providers and monitor the online presence of any content involving their child.
