Terms of Use

The use of this site confirms you have read and agree to the Terms of Use as given below.

 


  • I understand Tom Martino and/or his staff have screened, to the best of their ability, the service professionals, contractors, merchants and vendors listed herein, also known as "Members" and/or “Sponsors”.  This pre-screening process includes a check of civil and criminal records, traffic offenses, licensing, insurance, credit and other financial data.  However, no screening method is perfect and important items can and sometimes do get missed.


  • I understand that Tom Martino and/or his staff cannot check each and every employee of every Member on the Referral List.  Therefore, before I invite individuals into my home, I shall take sensible steps to assure the safety and security of myself and anyone in the household.


  • I understand the Members have agreed to the Code of Ethics listed on this web site.  When Tom Martino and/or his staff determine that Members are not meeting this code of ethics, it will result in removal of the Member from the Referral List.


  • I understand Tom Martino and/or his staff shall use their best efforts in attempting to resolve any dispute involving me and one or more Members, providing I report the dispute within 7-days of initially becoming aware of the dispute.


  • I agree that if I wish to obtain the assistance of Tom Martino and/or his staff in resolving any disputes with Members, I will contact Tom Martino and his staff in writing, using the Referral List Dispute Form available on this web site, within 7 days of becoming aware of a conflict, problem or questionable business practice of Members.


  • I understand that paying money up front is risky and is not recommended by Tom Martino.  Therefore, if I choose to pay Members, their affiliates, subcontractors and/or representatives in advance, I take full responsibility for my actions.


  • I agree, as a condition of using this site, that I will not hold Tom Martino and/or his staff responsible for any loss, damage or financial problems arising from use of this site or in my dealings with Members, their affiliates, subcontractors and/or representatives.


  • I understand that if a dispute is not settled to my satisfaction, I have the right to bring a private civil action against any Member, their affiliates, subcontractors and/or representatives.  Therefore, I shall not hold Tom Martino and/or his staff responsible for any unsettled disputes, problems or damages arising from my dealings with Members, their affiliates, subcontractors and/or representatives.


  • I understand it is important to shop around and compare all aspects of any business transaction and I understand that Tom Martino and/or his staff encourage me to do so before transacting business with Members.


  • I understand it is important to check experience, background, references, licensing, insurance and other pertinent information about Members before I use them and I shall not rely solely on Tom Martino and/or his staff, or any Member to provide this information.
