HOMEPRO PRE SCREENING PROCEDURES AND DISCLAIMERS
Unless otherwise noted on the screening tab of a HomePro’s profile page, FairBids.Com LLC.com uses the following criteria as part of its registration enrollment process (“registration”) for new HomePros, with the exception of Corporate Accounts (as described below) and HomePros providing services in Canada (neither of which are screened) applying for membership in our network:
WE PERFORM THE ABOVE SCREENING BASED UPON INFORMATION PROVIDED TO US BY THE HOMEPRO (E.G. NAME OF OWNER, BIRTHDATE, SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER)
NOTE: FAIRBIDS.COM LLC PERFORMS SCREENING SOLELY AT THE TIME THE HOMEPRO APPLIES FOR MEMBERSHIP IN THE FAIRBIDS.COM LLC NETWORK, AND THEREFORE A HOMEPRO’S INFORMATION MAY CHANGE OR EXPIRE OVER TIME. THUS, FAIRBIDS.COM LLC CANNOT AND DOES NOT WARRANT OR REPRESENT THAT PROFILE AND SCREENING INFORMATION IS UP TO DATE. FAIRBIDS.COM LLC IS UNDER NO OBLIGATION TO UPDATE A HOMEPRO’S SCREENING INFORMATION. WE RECOMMEND THAT BEFORE WORKING WITH A HOMEPRO YOU VERIFY THAT INFORMATION PRESENTED IN THE HOMEPRO’S PROFILE IS STILL ACCURATE, CURRENT AND ACCEPTABLE TO YOU.
Corporate Accounts: Some HomePros are employees, franchisees, dealers, or independent contractors (“Corporate SP’s”) of larger national or corporate accounts (“Corporate Accounts”). In such event, you may be matched with the Corporate Account entity or with one of their Corporate SP’s. The above screening criteria is not applicable to Corporate Accounts, and therefore, FairBids.Com LLC does not screen the Corporate Accounts or Corporate SP’s.
HomePros Profiles: FairBids.Com LLC allows HomePros to post profiles about themselves and their business on the FairBids.Com LLC or apps. FairBids.Com LLC does not review or verify the information or representations set forth in those profiles, except as expressly set forth above, as they are self-reported by the HomePro. FairBids.Com LLC therefore makes no representations or warranties regarding any information posted by a HomePro, and assumes no liability for such information.
The above procedures may change from time to time at the sole discretion of FairBids.Com LLC. FairBids.Com LLC believes that it uses commercially reasonable methods to check these matters but does not make any representations or warranties that members continue to meet the above screening criteria after the date of their enrollment in the FairBids.Com LLC network. FairBids.Com LLC does not represent or warrant that the information received from state, provincial or other government agencies or from third party sources is accurate, error free, or that it is up to date or updated at the time that FairBids.Com LLC checks such information. Most agencies have periodic update cycles or schedules and this information is not updated on a real-time basis by such agencies and third party sources.
DISCLAIMER: FAIRBIDS.COM LLC EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED RELATING TO THE SCREENING PROCESS, CRITERIA, PROCEDURES, OR INFORMATION OBTAINED OR PRESENTED IN THE SCREENING PROCESS OR DISCLOSURES INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR USE, OR THAT THE SCREENING OR VERIFICATION PROCEDURES OR STANDARDS ARE SUFFICIENT OR THAT THE INFORMATION RECEIVED IN THESE SCREENING OR VERIFICATION PROCEDURES IS ACCURATE, TIMELY OR ERROR FREE.
