Agreement of Terms
Caribtherapy.com is an interactive online directory service providing accessing individuals (“Users”) with information for Caribbean mental health professionals (“Members”) in the United States.
CaribTherapy, LLC membership is exclusively for mental health professionals, living and providing services in the US, that are natives of a Caribbean island listed on the Site. Each Member, during registration, is required to attest that they are from a Caribbean island. Users reserve the right to inquire further on specifics to ensure that Members are truthful in their representation on the Site. Users also reserve the right to notify CaribTherapy, LLC and/or Members’ respective licensing Board if Members have misrepresented themselves on the Site.
Member Access Information
Qualified Members of the caribtherapy.com Directory will be able to create a listing to advertise their mental health practice to potential clients, consumers, and the general public; specifically those seeking a therapist of a Caribbean background.
Currently, there is only one basic membership deal for all Members. As CaribTherapy, LLC grows, there will be opportunities to have a variety of membership types that will best meet your subscription needs.
Membership with CaribTherapy, LLC begins when mental health professionals complete the registration process and their profiles are approved. After approval, Members will have access to their profiles and the ability to edit and update content. No profiles will go live until a member from the CaribTherapy, LLC Review Team approves the profile.
Member agrees that membership cannot be given away, sold, or willed. Membership terminates when Member cancels their membership or their membership is cancelled by CaribTherapy, LLC.
Members may cancel their membership with Carib Therapy, LLC at any time, without refund. In the event that a Member cancels their membership within the same month they are to be billed, that member will still be charged for that month. The cancellation will go into effect the following month. For example, if a member is billed on the 5th of every month, and the member decides to cancel membership on the 2nd of the month, the Member will still be billed as scheduled on the 5th. The member’s profile will be cancelled and deactivated on the 1st of the following month and no charge will be applied. Absolutely no refunds or prorated amounts will be given to Members or former Members who cancel before their term of use expires, regardless of their membership type. Absolutely no refunds or pro-rated amounts will be given to Members or former Members for any reason whatsoever.
