(Effective as of February 8, 2020)
Welcome to FetchKids, a website (“Site”) and application (“App”) operated by Expanded Apps, Inc. the “Company”).
Please review these Terms carefully. By accessing or using the App, you show you agree to these Terms. If you don’t agree to these Terms, you may not access or use the App.
ABOUT THE APP
The App is a school dismissal coordination tool used by schools and parents to manage pickups of students from school. Parents can notify the school when they are on their way. The school is given the arrival time, name of driver, license info, and photo of driver, and can track the parents via GPS so children will always be at the curb and be ready to be picked up when the parent arrives. Parents can also arrange for a rideshare service to pick up their child (Uber, Lyft, taxi) and provide the school with all the info regarding the rideshare driver. Parents can also give permission to other parents or adults to pick up their kids and the school is then notified. (Visit the Site to see the full list of features.)
The services provided by the App are called the “Service.”
You will also be asked to create a password.
You can terminate your use of the Service, change your password, and otherwise manage your account using the Site.
Also, please note that the App is under constant development. New features may be added frequently, so it’s important to check back to this page for updates.
Like any other app, the App should never be used while driving.
To use the paid Service, schools will be charged a fee. If your school would like to sign up for the Service, please contact us.
Parents are not charged to use the App.
