By using our Services, you are agreeing to these Terms of Service, and must follow any policy made available to you within the Services. Please read them carefully.
We’ve tried to keep our Terms of Service as simple as possible, but if you are not familiar with terms like eForms, Care Profile and Authorised Supervisors, then read about these in our Definitions first.
Operoo (previously named ‘CareMonkey’) is an online and mobile platform used to automate inefficient operational processes. Its digital forms, approval workflows and online payments eliminate manual processes and paperwork headaches.
Services for All Users
An Operoo User (“User”) is any individual with an Operoo Account (username and password) who can legally complete/respond to forms on behalf of themselves, or somebody they are legally responsible for (e.g. their child). We help Users manage eForms, receive communications and respond to eForms requested by Organisations where they and/or the persons they are legally responsible for are a Member (e.g. their child’s school or club).
- Users are notified by email and/or SMS and/or push notification when an eForm has been sent, and can view communications and eForms within Operoo;
- Users can respond to eForms, make payments, and/or provide signed consent on behalf of themselves, or somebody they are legally responsible for;
- Community Edition Users can create a Care Profile for themselves, or somebody they are legally responsible for; The Care Profile may include a Medical form with a photo, emergency contacts, medical conditions and personalised care instructions;
- Community Edition Users can share their Care Profile with other Users, or with one or more Organisations. When a User shares a Care Profile with an Organisation, the Care Profile becomes part of that Organisation’s Member records;
- A Community Edition User can export their data and/or permanently delete their Operoo Account at anytime.
All Users are subject to the User Terms of Service. Users include parents, legal guardians and any Adult User (including an Organisation’s Staff Members, Authorised Supervisors, and Administrators which are given privileges by that Organisation’s Operoo Administrator (“Admin”)).
If a User is given privileges by an Organisation (Administrator and/or Authorised Supervisor access) then that User is also subject to the Customer Terms of Service.
Some Organizations also use Operoo to send communications and collect eForms directly to and from their students or other under-age members (“Student Users”). In those cases, the Student User will be provided an Operoo account that is separate from the parent’s or guardian’s account and that has limited functionality. Student Users are also subject to these User Terms of Service, but the way that a Student User’s Operoo Account is authorized differs based on the country where the Student User is located — see below under “General Conditions – Kids and Operoo” for details.
Services for Paying Customers
We help paying Customers (Organisations such as schools, clubs, sports teams and businesses) efficiently manage the secure collection of completed eForms from Users, and provide secure access to completed eForms to the relevant Authorised Supervisors and Admins. For example, a teacher may have access to student medical forms on a camp so they know what to do, who to call, and what to tell paramedics in an emergency.
- Add and organise Members (e.g. students, staff) into Groups (e.g. classes, teams);
- Add additional information about Members (e.g. contact information, photos, notes and attachments);
- Send email, SMS and in-app communications to Users legally responsible for Members;
- Design, send and collect custom eForms requesting information, payments and/or signed consent from Users (e.g. permission to attend an excursion or field trip);
- Collect Medical eForms that include emergency information about Members (contacts, medical conditions, personalised care instructions) from Users;
- Set and send automated reminders to Users confirming Member information is accurate and up-to-date;
- Manage and reconcile consents and communications with and from Users;
- Run pre-built reports on their Members, eForms, Excursions and other activities; and
- Grant Authorised Supervisors (e.g teachers, coaches, supervising staff) secure access to Member information in Groups and eForms (including emergency information in the Medical eForm).
Organisations use our Services to enable Authorised Supervisors to:
- View emergency information and completed eForms for Members they are responsible for via a browser, or the Operoo Mobile App (which also provides offline access);
- Add additional information about Members (e.g. log injuries, notes, and mark the roll on excursions for those Members);
- Send Group email, SMS and in-app messages to Users responsible for Members.
User Terms of Service
This Agreement governs the use of Operoo by any User, and limits the liability of the Company to any User. The User agrees and accepts that:
- The User must register an account in Operoo to use the Services;
- The User must be a legal Adult, except where the User is a Student User who has been assigned a special student account. Children under legal age cannot be a User on a standard Operoo account;
- The User must be a legal Adult (children under age cannot be a User);
- In Community Edition all Care Profiles and eForm responses from the User are controlled by the User, not the Company or the Organisation;
- In Group Edition the Student Record is controlled by the Organisation and access may be granted to parent/guardian Users;
- The User can only input information on behalf of themselves, and on behalf of others if they are legally responsible for that person (e.g. parent of child, legal guardian), or have that individual’s recorded consent;
- To correspond with the User, the Organisation must use the User’s contact information;
- The User may receive emails, text messages, push notifications and other alerts via Operoo on behalf of an Organisation and their Authorised Supervisors;
- Some communications are emergent and cannot be opted-out;
- If a Community Edition User shares a Care Profile with an Organisation or Individual User, they authorise the Company/Operoo to provide access to the Medical Form (which may include personal health information) to that Organisation or Individual;
- The User agrees that when it provides any consent, authority or agreement via Operoo, it does so as an electronic transaction and warrants that such transaction shall be binding on the party unless and until revoked by the User;
- The User agrees an Organisation may rely on a consent made via Operoo without any need to further verify the veracity of that consent;
- If the User responds to an eForm (e.g. a media consent form, or excursion permission form), that eForm response becomes the property of the Organisation, and may include a snapshot of the Care Profile/Medical Form at the time the eForm was submitted. This means the User still controls their responses, however only the Organisation can delete the eForm responses;
- The User is solely responsible for verifying the identity of a signatory to any electronic transaction it is a party to.
- Any information shared by a User with an authorised Organisation may be retained by the Organisation for the purposes of updating/maintaining their administrative records, and/or for compliance purposes;
- If the User shares information with an Organisation, that Organisation may have its own policies governing access to this information and the use of Operoo by its Staff Members.
- If the User is granted additional permissions by an Organisation (e.g. access as an Admin or Authorised Supervisor), the User is also subject to the Customer Terms of Service.
- A Community Edition User’s license to access Operoo shall be ongoing until terminated by the User. The User can terminate the Agreement by deleting their Operoo Account.
- A parent or guardian of a Student User can terminate that Student User’s license to access Operoo, and terminate this Agreement with respect to that Student User, by contacting the school or other Organization and asking to have the Student User’s account deleted.

Your Operoo Account
- You need an Operoo Account in order to use Operoo as a User, or an Authorised Supervisor or Admin on behalf of an Organisation.
- If you are a student or other minor whose Organization uses Operoo directly with students or members, you need an Operoo Student Account in order to use Operoo.
- To protect your Operoo Account (including an Operoo Student Account), keep your password confidential. You are responsible for the activity that happens on or through your Operoo Account.

- This Agreement applies to use of and access to Operoo;
- Where the User does not accept any Terms and Conditions of this Agreement, the User must immediately cease using Operoo, and/or delete their Account;
- For Student Users located in the United States only: The initial consent for collecting information from a Student User will be provided by your school or other Organization. However, the Student User’s parent/guardian has the right to supersede that consent if the parent/guardian wishes to reject this Agreement’s Terms and Conditions on behalf of their child. In that case, the parent/guardian must cause their child to immediately cease using Operoo, and must contact the school or other Organization to have their Student User account deleted.
- This Agreement may be updated from time-to-time by the Company at its absolute discretion, and unless stated otherwise by the Company in writing, such updates shall come into effect for use of Operoo at the User’s next login after the User receives written notice of the update(s).
The Operoo product

- Operoo is only accessible to the User as stated in the terms set out in the section of this Agreement “User Terms of Service”.
- Operoo is only accessible to the Customer (Organisation) as stated in the terms set out in the section of this Agreement “Customer Terms of Service”.
- The User agrees and accepts that Operoo is:
- Hosted by the Company and shall only be installed, accessed and maintained by the Company, accessed using the internet or other connection to the Company services and is not available ‘locally’ from the User’s system; and
- Managed and supported exclusively by the Company from the Company servers and that no ‘back-end’ access to Operoo is available to the User or Customer unless expressly agreed in writing, or accessed by the Customer using the Operoo API.
- As a hosted and managed service, the company reserves the right to upgrade, maintain, tune, backup, amend, add or remove features, redesign, improve or otherwise alter Operoo.
- The company shall not exercise its right under the clause (above) in a manner that would intentionally cause the User to lose access to User Content or fundamentally decrease the utility of Operoo to the User, other than in accordance with the terms of the Agreement.
- By accepting the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the User is granted a limited, non-exclusive and revocable license to access and use Operoo for the duration of this Agreement, in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
- The Company may issue the license to the User with further terms or limitations (including the number of Users it can manage, or volume of use or transactions) as it sees fit.
- The Company may revoke or suspend the User’s license(s) in its absolute discretion for any reason that it sees fit, including for breach of the terms and conditions in this Agreement by the User or Customer. The Company will ordinarily advise the User of any suspension or revocation, however, it is under no obligation to do so.
Use for Purpose

Users and Security
- The User is solely responsible for the security of its username and password for access to Operoo.
- The User shall notify the Company as soon as it becomes aware of any unauthorised access of its Operoo Account.
Kids and Operoo
- Among other things, Organisations use the Services to collect medical and consent information from Adult Users to deliver on their duty of care obligations.
- Some of the User Content that Student Users will input into Operoo may be “personal information” that is subject to legal protection. That personal information includes the Student User’s name, email address and/or cell phone number for SMS texts, potentially some other information that the Student User inputs into Operoo, and (in some countries) other information that someone might guess from the data that was input (for example, diet restrictions might suggest a specific religion). The laws regarding collection of personal information, and who can consent to its collection, differ from country to country. If you or your child is provided a Student Account, the rules that apply to you or your child are the following:
- Student Users in Australia: By accessing a Student Account, you – the Student User – are consenting to the collection of your own personal information. That information includes the types of information described in the lead-in to this paragraph. The Company/Operoo won’t share that information with anyone except the school or other organization that provided your Student Account. (The Company will not provide Student Accounts to schools or other organizations where the Company knows that the students are too young to have capacity to make their own decisions regarding personal information; those schools and organizations are limited to Adult User accounts.)
- Student Users in the United Kingdom (and other countries covered by the GDPR): By accessing a Student Account, you – the Student User – are consenting to the collection of your own personal information. That information includes the types of information described in the lead-in to this paragraph. The Company/Operoo won’t share that information with anyone except the school or other organization that provided your Student Account. (The Company will not provide Student Accounts to schools or other organizations where the Company knows that the students are under the age of 13; those schools and organizations are limited to Adult User accounts.)
- Student Users in the United States: Schools and school districts that elect to provide Student Accounts are deemed to have given consent to the collection of personal information from their Student Users, as permitted by the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and the Rules under that Act. If a Student User’s parent / guardian objects to the collection of that information, the parent / guardian can supersede the consent given by the school. To do so, the parent / guardian must cause their Student User to cease using Operoo and must contact the school to have their Student Account deleted.
- The Company obtains no right, title or interest in User Content including any Intellectual Property found within it. The Company accepts no liability for the content of User Content.
- Despite the clause immediately above, the Company shall be authorised to permanently delete Organisation Content where outstanding Fees remain unpaid in accordance with the section of this Agreement “Customer Terms of Service – License, Fees and Termination”, subject to the Company first providing seven (7) Business Days’ notice of its intention to do so.
- The User is responsible for the accuracy, quality and legality of User Content and the User’s acquisition of it. The User is responsible for which other Users or Organisations it shares information with.
- The Organisation is responsible for the accuracy, quality and legality of Organisation Content (including Members, Groups and eForms) and the Organisation’s acquisition of it. The Organisation is responsible for which Users it assigns Admin and Authorised Supervisor permissions.
- The Company shall not access, use, modify or otherwise deal with User Content except where required by the compulsion of law or upon the User’s authority (such as to provide support for Operoo).
- The Company makes no warranty as to the suitability of Operoo in regards to the Organisation’s privacy obligations at law or contract, and it is the Organisation’s responsibility to determine whether Operoo is appropriate for the Organisation’s circumstances.
- The Organisation agrees to pay all Fees as and when they fall due and to the extent permissible by law. Fees are non-cancellable and/or non-refundable once ordered or paid.
- The Company may introduce new services with corresponding Fees by giving the User written notice of their availability and applicability.
- The Company shall maintain all Fees for the term of the licence paid for by the Organisation.
- The Company shall notify the User of any changes to existing Fees no less than 14 days before the end of the term of the Organisation’s licence.
- The Company may revoke or suspend the Customer’s license to access Operoo for unpaid Fees without liability.
- Where the Company:
- Is required to perform any services for the Customer outside of what is set out in this Agreement or otherwise in writing; and
- Is subject to delays caused by changes or complexities outside of its control (and not caused by its breach of this Agreement); then
- The Customer agrees that the Company shall be entitled to charge the Customer an additional amount that is reasonable for the service performed.
- The currency of transactions will be documented in any quotations and/or orders.
- GST is applicable to any Fees charged by the Company to Customers within Australia. Unless expressed otherwise, all Fees shall be deemed exclusive of GST. The Company will provide an Australian Customer with a Tax Invoice for its payment.
- For Customers outside of Australia, all Fees shall be deemed exclusive of any sales, gross receipts, value-added, or other taxes that may apply.
- No refunds of Fees are offered other than as specified in this Agreement or as required by law.

- The Customer authorises the Company to use the Customer’s information for the purposes of obtaining a credit assessment or to otherwise make investigations as to the Customer’s payment history.
The Company takes the privacy of Users very seriously. The User agrees that the User shall not do anything to prejudice the security or privacy of the Company’s systems or the information on them. The Company’s security policy can be found here.
The Company shall do all things reasonable to ensure that the transmission of data occurs according to accepted industry standards. It is up to the User to ensure that any transmission standards meet the User’s operating and legal requirements.
The Company may limit the amount of data that the User stores in Operoo, and shall advise the User of such. Data that is stored with Operoo shall be stored according to accepted industry standards.
The Company shall perform backups of Operoo in as reasonable manner at such times and intervals as are reasonable for its business purposes. The Company does not warrant that it is able to backup or recover specific User Content from any period of time unless so stated in writing by the Company.
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
- These Terms of Service incorporate the Operoo Data Processing Addendum (“DPA”), available here, when the GDPR applies to your use of the Operoo Services to process Customer Data (as defined in the DPA).
- By accepting the terms of this Agreement the User and/or Customer agrees that the Company shall provide access to Operoo to the best of its abilities, however:
- Access to Operoo may be prevented by issues outside of its control; and
- It accepts no responsibility for ongoing access to Operoo.
- Customers can prepare Authorised Supervisors for unscheduled unavailability of Operoo by:
- Keeping their Operoo Mobile App up to date, which will store local copies of the data that the Authorised Supervisor is permitted to access;

- Printing hard copies of reports.
- Trademarks. The Company has moral & registered rights in its trademarks and the User shall not copy, alter, use or otherwise deal in the marks without the prior written consent of the Company.

The User warrants that it shall not infringe on any third-party rights through the use of Operoo.
- The Operoo Application. The User agrees and accepts that Operoo is the Intellectual Property of the Company and the User further warrants that by using Operoo the User will not:

- Directly or indirectly copy, recreate, decompile, reverse engineer or otherwise obtain, modify or use any source or object code, architecture, algorithms contained in Operoo or any documentation associated with it.
- Content. All content (with the exception of User Content) remains the Intellectual Property of the Company, including (without limitation) any source code, analytics, insights, ideas, enhancements, feature requests, suggestions or other information provided by the User or any other party with respect to Operoo.
- The information and classes of information set out in the General Terms are Confidential Information for the purposes of this Agreement. In default, information relating to the business operations, personal information and other information that should be confidential is Confidential Information.
- Each party acknowledges and agrees that:
- The Confidential Information is secret, confidential and valuable to the disclosing party (Discloser);
- It owes an obligation of confidence to the Discloser concerning the Confidential Information;
- It must not disclose the Confidential Information to a third party except as permitted in this Agreement;
- All Intellectual Property rights remain vested in the Discloser but disclosure of Confidential Information does not in any way transfer or assign any rights or interests in the Intellectual Property to the receiving party; and
- Any breach or threatened breach by the receiving party of an obligation under this Agreement may cause the Discloser immediate and irreparable harm for which damages alone may not be an adequate remedy. Consequently the Discloser has the right, in addition to other remedies available at law or in equity, to seek injunctive relief against the receiving party (and its agents, assigns, employees, officers and directors, personally) or to compel specific performance of this clause.
- A party must notify the Discloser in writing, giving full details known to it immediately, when it becomes aware of:
- Any actual, suspected, likely or threatened breach outlined in this Agreement;
- Any actual, suspected, likely or threatened breach by any person of any obligation in relation to the Confidential Information; or
- Any actual, suspected, likely or threatened theft, loss, damage, or unauthorised access, use or disclosure of or to any Confidential Information.
- The receiving party must promptly take all steps that the Discloser may reasonably require and must co-operate with any investigation, litigation or other action of the Discloser or of a related body corporate if there is:
- Any actual, suspected, likely or threatened breach of a term of this Agreement; or
- Any theft, loss, damage or unauthorised access, use or disclosure of or to any Confidential Information that is or was in its possession or control.
