E. User Content
Some parts of the Website, such as message boards, job listings, and forums, may allow users to post text, job solicitations, resumes, information, images, audio, video, messages, and other materials, (any such materials a user submits, posts, displays, or otherwise makes available on the Website is referred to as “User Content”). Such functionality is designed to help readers obtain career and company information, facilitate communication, discuss ways to make career decisions and to let users know of job opportunities. This User Content is provided by outside contributors, many of whom use anonymous screen names. They may occasionally post User Content, including messages or statements that are misleading, deceptive, or unequivocally incorrect. Staffing Online® does not endorse and is not responsible for any opinion, advice, information, or statement contained in the User Content made or displayed on the website by third parties. You acknowledge that by accessing the website, you may come into contact with content that you find harmful, offensive, threatening, indecent, or objectionable. You acknowledge that Staffing Online® shall have no liability to you for the content including, but not limited to explicit language and other potentially offensive material.
Users of the website must not post User Content or information that is unlawful, fraudulent, discriminatory, threatening, abusive, libelous, defamatory, obscene or otherwise objectionable, or that contains sexual, ethnic, racial or other discriminating slurs or material that contains no relevant or constructive content, which goes beyond profanity into obscenity or abhorrence, or which is otherwise in violation of the law. Users are also prohibited from posting any User Content that contains proprietary information, trade secrets or confidential information. User Content may not contain any advertisements, solicitations, chain letters, pyramid schemes, investment opportunities, or other unsolicited commercial communication (except as otherwise expressly permitted by us), or encourage or cause spamming or flooding.
When you create a Career Site or post a job solicitation on Staffing Online®, whether part of the Staffing Online® Ads program or as a free posting, you agree that all of Staffing Online’s® terms, including the Staffing Online® Privacy and Cookie policies apply to you and to the applicants applying through such Sites or solicitations. You also agree that Staffing Online® shall utilize its Staffing Online® Apply email relay function for such job solicitations and that applicants to those jobs and utilizing such career site shall apply through Staffing Online® Apply. If you post a job solicitation on Staffing Online® with questions to applicants, you agree to be responsible for the content of such questions. You agree that Staffing Online® may reject or remove any job listing or any part of any career site or any screening question for any or no reason.

You are prohibited from posting any User Content containing official identification information (whether your own or of another person) on the website, such as social security number, passport number, national identification number, insurance number, driver’s license number, immigration number, or any other similar number, code, or identifier. Posting such identification information may lead to identity theft and other adverse consequences. Staffing Online® may remove such numbers but does not undertake any obligation to do so and undertakes no responsibility and disclaims all liability for posting of such numbers.
Although Staffing Online® has no obligation to do so, Staffing Online® may monitor messages posted on the website and reserves the right to delete any User Content or portion thereof which violate the above rules, messages, topics that are unrelated to the specific portion of the website on which they are posted, advertisements, recruiting or other commercial messages, and any other User Content that Staffing Online® deems in its sole discretion is inappropriate. If you believe a message violates our policies, please contact Staffing Online® immediately so that we can consider its editing or removal. Staffing Online® does not promise to remove any User Content and interpretation of whether User Content violates any Staffing Online® policy always remains within the sole discretion of Staffing Online®.
Staffing Online® reserves the right to disclose all User Content and other relevant information and the circumstances surrounding their transmission to any third party in order to operate the website properly; to protect itself, its partners and its visitors; and to comply with legal obligations or governmental requests. This means Staffing Online® may honor court-mandated requests to reveal a user’s electronic address and identity.
Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Staffing Online® reserves the right (but are under no obligation) to remove any job listings that directly or indirectly discriminate against applicants. Direct discrimination means that a job listing specifically makes it clear that they only want applicants that match a certain criterion, thereby excluding others because of their gender, race, age or disability. Indirect discrimination means that a job listing implicitly excludes certain classes of applicants by making it impossible for them to qualify for the job requirements. You understand and agree that it is your responsibility to refrain from posting any job listings that contain direct or indirect discrimination.

1. Resume Database Access
If you are accessing the Resume Database (as defined in Section 5, Subsection C below) as an Employer, then subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Staffing Online® hereby grants you as an Employer a limited, revocable, non-transferable, non-exclusive right to access the Resume Database from the Service for the limited purpose of viewing and/or downloading a single copy of available paper resumes solely for use by the Employer. If you use or access the Resume Database, Video Resume or Video Greetings as an Employer, you agree to comply with the following rules regarding access to the Database:
· The Database shall only be used by Employer for the purpose of seeking employees for Employer.
· The Database shall not be used to send unsolicited mail or e-mails, make unsolicited phone calls or send unsolicited faxes regarding promotions and/or advertising of Employer’s or a third party’s products or services.
· Employer shall implement appropriate physical, technical, and administrative measures to protect the data within the Database from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction.
· The Database shall only be used and accessed by Employer in accordance with privacy, data protection and other applicable laws and regulations.
· Employer shall respect the privacy choices of Job Seekers who have uploaded their information to the Resume Database.
· The Database shall not be used in any way that, in the sole discretion of Staffing Online®, adversely affects Staffing Online® business, the performance of the Service, or interferes with the ability, of others to access the Database.
5. PROVISIONS SPECIFIC TO USERS THAT ARE CANDIDATES
The provisions of this Section 5 of the Agreement are specific to Users that use the Service as Candidates (including as Job Seekers). If you are using the Service as a Candidate, then in the event of a conflict between the provisions of this Section 5 and the rest of the Agreement, the provisions of this Section 5 will supersede.
A. Candidate Accounts
If you create a Candidate Account (whether to search or apply for a job posting as a “Job Seeker” or to complete the new hire process through Staffing Online® as a potential new employee or contractor), you must be permitted to legally work within your applicable jurisdiction. If you are registering to be a Candidate, you may use your account only for yourself or individuals for whom you have legal authority to represent.
In addition to applying for a job posting as a “Job Seeker”, you can also browse the Service, receive job alerts from the Service regarding jobs that may be of interest to you (“Job Alerts”), and save a record of job listings you have found on the Service.
B. Job Applications
As a registered Job Seeker, you will be able to submit job applications through the Service (“Job Applications”) for jobs that are listed on the Service (“Job Listings”). You will have the ability to choose how to submit your Job Application through the Service using the options offered through the Service. For example, you may submit your Job Application through the Service by (a) using the Service’s “Click Apply” feature, (b) using the Service’s “Apply Now” feature, or (c) applying through your Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn.com accounts. If you elect to use the Service’s “Click Apply” feature, when you click on “1-Click Apply” the information that you have included as part of your My Profile, including your resume and contact information, will be sent to the Employer that posted the applicable Job Listing. If you elect to use the Service’s “Apply Now” feature, you will be required to provide your name, email address and phone number, and attach your resume (and, when you click the “Apply Now” button, this information will then be sent to the Employer that posted the applicable Job Listing), or the “Apply Now” button will redirect you to an external website where you will be able to apply to the Job Listing. If you elect to apply through your Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn.com account, you will be asked to log in to your Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn.com account, and the profile, resume and other information that you have provided as part of your Monster.com or LinkedIn.com account will then be sent to the Employer that posted the applicable job. Job Application submission is also available through your mobile device.
Please note that once you have submitted a Job Application through any feature of the Service, your resume, and other relevant information will be shared with the Employer that posted the Job Listing. If you elect to submit a Job Application to an Employer through the Service’s “Click Apply” feature the information you include in your My Profile will constitute the information that is included in your Job Application and is provided to the applicable Employer. Therefore, you should ensure that the information in your My Profile is complete, accurate, and only contains information you are comfortable sharing with Employers, prior to submitting a Job Application through the Service’s “Click Apply” feature.
If you submit a resume, you acknowledge that we may “parse” the resume in order to create searchable text for an Employer. The employer will also be able to see your resume in the form in which you submitted it to Staffing Online®.
C. Resume Database, Video Resume and Video Greetings
In addition to submitting Job Applications through the Service, you will have the opportunity to, but will not be required to, elect to include your resume as part of the Service’s resume database (the “Resume Database”) at the time you register to use the Service. If you do not elect to include your resume in the Resume Database at the time you register to use the Service, as a registered Job Seeker you may subsequently elect to include your resume in the Resume Database by adjusting the settings in your Job Seeker account. We will not include your resume in the Resume Database unless you affirmatively elect to include your resume in the Resume Database. If you elect to include your resume in the Resume Database, Employers who have registered to access the Resume Database will be able to access and view your resume and the contact information you provide on your resume, including your name, email address, mailing address and phone number, as applicable. Employers will be able to contact you directly using the information on your resume. Please provide minimal personally identifiable information about yourself.
You can opt-out of including your resume in the Resume Database at any time by adjusting the settings in your Job Seeker account and we will remove your resume from the Resume Database as soon as reasonably possible. However, if an Employer has accessed your resume through the Resume Database and copied or saved your resume prior to the date we receive your opt-out request, that Employer will continue to have access to your resume and all information you included in your resume as it was included in the Resume Database.
D. Interactions with Employers
You are solely responsible for your interactions with Employers that you contact, or that contact you, through the Service. Please note that there are risks, including but not limited to the risk of physical harm, that may arise when dealing with strangers, including persons who may be acting under false pretenses. Therefore, you should use caution with regard to the information you elect to share as part of your User Profile or a Job Application or resume that you provide through the Service. Only list the contact information on your resume or Job Applications that you are comfortable disclosing to Employers and other Users of the Service.
Although Staffing Online® requests that Employers maintain the confidentiality of the Job Applications and resumes they receive through the Service, Staffing Online® cannot and does not guarantee that the information you provide to Employers through the Service as part of a Job Application or resume will be held in confidence or properly secured by each applicable Employer. In addition, Staffing Online® takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for any Job Listing that any Employer posts or sends through the Service. You agree that Staffing Online® is not responsible or liable for the conduct of any Employer.
Staffing Online® cares about the integrity and security of your personal information. We cannot, however, guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to surpass our security measures or use your personal information for improper purposes. You acknowledge that you provide your personal information at your own risk.

14. Claims of Infringement
U.S. Copyright Infringement.
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that materials hosted by Staffing Online® infringe your copyright, you (or your agent) may send us a notice requesting that the material be removed, or access to it blocked. The notice must include the following information as required by 17 USC. § 512(c)(3)(A): (a) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (b) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed (or if multiple copyrighted works located on the site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works); (c) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow Staffing Online® to locate the material on the site; (d) the name, address, telephone number, and email address (if available) of the complaining party; (e) a statement that the complaining party has a good-faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and (f) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed. If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send Staffing Online® a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.loc.gov/copyright/ for details. Notices and counter-notices with respect to the Website should be sent to Staffing Online® Copyright Notice, 4401 N. Federal Hwy, Suite 205, Boca Raton, FL, USA (copyright @ staffingonline.com) (remove spaces when sending email). We suggest that you consult your legal advisor before filing a notice or counter-notice. Also, be aware that there can be penalties for false claims under the DMCA.

15. AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE
A. Binding Arbitration
This Section 15 is referred to in this Agreement as the “Agreement to Arbitrate.” Once electing to use our services for any reason, you hereby irrevocably agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and Staffing Online® or its affiliates, whether relating to the Service, this Agreement (including any alleged breach thereof), or otherwise (each a “Dispute”), shall be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration, rather than a court in accordance with the terms of this Agreement to Arbitrate. Your rights will be determined by a neutral arbitrator, not a judge or jury. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT ABSENT THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE, YOU WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL.
The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), including the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes, each available at www.adr.org, or such other alternative dispute resolution body and arbitration rules that may be mutually agreed upon by you and Staffing Online®. Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by such rules. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone or online. The arbitrator must follow applicable laws, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, you and Staffing Online® may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceeding pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator. All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision or award by the arbitrator, will be strictly confidential for the benefit of all parties.
You and Staffing Online® agree that any arbitration shall be limited to the Dispute between Staffing Online® and you individually. To the full extent permitted by law, (a) no arbitration shall be joined with any other; (b) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (c) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons.
C. Exceptions to Informal Negotiations and Arbitration
You and Staffing Online® agree that the following Disputes are not subject to the above provisions concerning informal negotiations and binding arbitration: (a) any Disputes seeking to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of, any of your or Staffing Online® intellectual property rights; (b) any Dispute related to, or arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, invasion of privacy or unauthorized use; and (c) any claim for injunctive relief.
A. Governing Law and Location
The Service is controlled and operated by Staffing Online® from its offices within the State of Florida, United States of America. Staffing Online® makes no representation that materials on the Service are appropriate or available for use in other locations. Those who choose to access the Service from other locations do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable. You agree that the Service shall be deemed a passive one that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over Staffing Online®, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than Florida. This Agreement and any Disputes shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of Florida, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. An arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different Users but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same User to the extent required by applicable law. All arbitration and other litigation in a court of competent jurisdiction of any dispute between you and Staffing Online® related to this Agreement shall be located in Boca Raton, Florida.
This Agreement, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you but may be assigned by Staffing Online® without restriction.
A. Relationship of the Parties
Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed as making either party the partner, joint venturer, employer, contractor or employee of the other. Neither party shall have, or hold itself out to any third party as having any authority to make any statements, representations or commitments of any kind, or to take any action, that shall be binding on the other, except as provided for herein or authorized in writing by the party to be bound.
B. Notification Procedures
Staffing Online® may provide notifications, whether such notifications are required by law or are for marketing or other business related purposes, to you via email notice, written or hard copy notice, or through conspicuous posting of such notice on our website, as determined by Staffing Online® in our sole discretion. Staffing Online® reserves the right to determine the form and means of providing notifications to our Users, provided that you may opt out of certain means of notification as described in this Agreement. Staffing Online® is not responsible for any automatic filtering you or your network provider may apply to email notifications we send to the email address you provide us. We recommend that you add firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com to your email address book to help ensure you receive email notifications from us.
C. Entire Agreement/Severability
This Agreement, together with any amendments and any additional agreements you may enter into with Staffing Online® in connection with the Service, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and Staffing Online® concerning the Service. If any provision of this Agreement is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of this Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect.
All agreements, amendments or consents must be in writing and signed by the president or vice president of operations, no exceptions whatsoever. All verbal agreements, amendments, and consents are, therefore, NULL AND VOID.
D. No Waiver
No waiver of any term of this Agreement shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Staffing Online’s® failure to assert any right or provision under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
