Terms & Conditions

Welcome to the Web Access to Care at Harvard Portal (“the WATCH Portal” or “the Portal”), a project of the Office of Faculty Development and Diversity and the Office of Work/Life.

The Portal allows members of the Harvard community and their household family members to obtain and offer caregiving, tutoring/mentoring, and odd job services.  Eligible Harvard faculty and staff can post jobs, and eligible Harvard students can both post jobs and look for jobs.  In addition, eligible Harvard faculty and staff can sponsor family household members to offer caregiving, tutoring/mentoring, and odd job services, provided those family members are high school or college students and at least fifteen years old.  In this document, eligible Harvard students and sponsored family household members looking for jobs are termed “Student Providers”.

To use the Portal, you must accept the Terms & Conditions to register and create a user profile, which will include your name, address, contact information and other pertinent personal data. Certain parts of this information will be available to other WATCH Portal users, as explained in the Watch Portal Privacy Policy.

Terms and Conditions

By registering, I agree to use the Watch Portal for its intended purpose and in keeping with my permitted role (for example, as a student or employee) in accordance with these Terms and Conditions and the Watch Portal Privacy Policy and further to provide only accurate information in my use of the Portal.  I agree that that I will use the Portal in a lawful manner that will not infringe on or violate the rights of others and further that I will not use the Portal for commercial purposes.   I understand that my use of the Portal is subject to applicable Harvard policies, including but not limited to the Information Security policy and policies on discrimination and harassment.

I acknowledge that Harvard does not screen the information provided by Portal users, and I agree that Harvard is not responsible for any information provided by Portal users and has no liability for any use to which that information may be put. I understand that Harvard is not responsible for links to and the content of other web sites provided by Portal users.  I also acknowledge that Harvard reserves the right to limit or end my access to or use of the Portal at its sole discretion, under any circumstances including (but not limited to) my provision of inaccurate or misleading information, including eligibility information. I also understand that Harvard may remove content that is unlawful or infringes the rights of others.

If I am offering services as a Student Provider, I further certify that I am at least 15 years old.

IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER:

The Watch Portal serves as a clearinghouse for the convenience of members of the Harvard community who wish to offer or obtain caregiving, tutoring/mentoring, and/or odd job services or to sponsor family household members to offer caregiving, tutoring/mentoring, and/or odd job services.  Harvard University does not screen Student Providers and also does not screen other Portal users.  Student Providers are not Harvard employees and are retained solely by the individuals who procure the caregiving, tutoring/mentoring, and/or odd job services.  Harvard cannot and does not make any representations about Student Providers or about the faculty and staff using this site (other than the current employment status of those Harvard faculty and staff members).  Harvard also makes no representations about the services provided.  In consideration for my use of the Portal, I release Harvard University from any injury, loss, or damage arising from or related to my use of the Portal and any caregiving, tutoring/mentoring, and/or odd job services.
