Please read these Terms and Conditions ("Terms") carefully before using the https://www.vitalrecordsonline.com website (the "Site") operated by Vital Records Online ("us", "we", or "our").

Your access to and use of the Site is conditioned upon your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms. These Terms apply to all visitors, users and others who wish to access or use the Site. Your agreement to these Terms also includes your agreement to the terms of our Privacy Policy, which is incorporated by reference into these Terms and is therefore an integral part of these Terms.

By accessing or using the Site you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you disagree with any part of the terms, then you do not have permission to access the Site.

Purchases

If you wish to purchase any product or service made available through the Site ("Purchase"), you may be asked to supply certain information relevant to your Purchase including (but not limited to) your credit card number, the expiration date of your credit card, your billing address, and your shipping information.

It is your responsibility to represent and warrant that: (i) you have the legal right to use any credit card(s) or other payment method(s) in connection with any Purchase; and that (ii) the information you supply to us is true, correct and complete.

The Site may employ the use of third party services for the purpose of facilitating payment and the completion of Purchases. By submitting your information, you grant us the right to provide your information to these third parties, an action which is subject to our Privacy Policy.

Intellectual Property

The Site and its original content, features and functionality are and will remain the exclusive property of Vital Records Online and its licensors. The Site is protected by copyright, trademark, and other laws of both the United States and foreign countries. Our trademarks and trade dress may not be used in connection with any product or service without the prior written consent of Vital Records Online.

Processing Time

Vital Records Online is an independent service provider assisting customers in preparing their applications to request official Government documents about themselves (“Documents”). Vital Records Online is not related to any Government agency and is not responsible or liable for the time it takes for the United States Health Department to issue the customer a Document. Vital Records Online guarantees the delivery of our application preparation materials within the time indicated within the description of services. Once the final application is sent from the customer to a state office, the delivery of the customer’s birth certificate will vary, as each state office has a different processing time.

For more information, please refer to our “State fees & processing time (/state-fees-vital-records)” page to estimate your application delivery time. Some state offices offer a “RUSH” order service with an additional fee. If this option is available in your state, you can select it on the “Select Services” page. In order to secure and speed up the final Document delivery from the Health Department, some states allow customers to use USPS Express Mail. For those states our rush package can be purchased on our Site.

Refund Policy

Vital Records Online uses the information users provide on its website to pre-fill the application documents. Vital Records Online is not responsible for any mistakes you make made which may result in failure to receive a Document. No refund will be issued should the above-mentioned circumstance occur.

Because user satisfaction is our priority, we do guarantee to offer a refund at any time under the following circumstances:

For any questions regarding your application package or if your refund request is not listed above please contact our billing department at: +1 844-387-0200

Notarization Process

Certain states require a notarized sworn letter to verify a user’s identity. If you were born in one of the states which carry this requirement, an additional document with notarization instruction will be provided.

You are responsible for the notarization of the sworn letter in order to get the application approved by your state. The post-purchase discovery that your state requires notarization does not provide reasonable grounds for a refund.

Vital Records Online has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third party web sites or services. We do not warrant the offerings of any of these entities/individuals or their websites.
