Jobs, employment offers and our role
We operate the Job.com Platform to match Job Seekers with Employers. The Platform enables Job Seekers to find and apply for open positions and for Clients / Employers to market such positions to Job Seekers.
Job.com utilizes best practices to ensure that jobs presented on the Platform are genuine opportunities, which are available and as described; however, we do not and cannot guarantee to Job Seekers that the jobs they view or apply for will be available as described or suitable, nor do or can we guarantee that Job Seekers introduced to Clients / Employers will be available as described or suitable for the advertised roles. It is the responsibility of Job Seekers and Clients / Employers – not of Job.com – to ensure they do proper due diligence prior to entering into employment relationships, including, without limitation, by confirming that the Job Seeker is suitable for the position the Client / Employer seeks to fill and the Client / Employer has obtained any appropriate references and conducted any applicable and permissible background checks. We are not responsible for the selection or non-selection of any Job Seeker, nor for the Job Seeker’s behavior or performance if selected.
You acknowledge that you are solely responsible for all use you make of the Platform.
As a Jobseeker / Candidate
E It is important that you establish that any jobs you wish to apply for are suitable; you can do this by communicating with the Client / Employer after they respond to your application
We may match you with a particular job posted on the Platform based on details provided by you in any or all of the following: your resume, the information you provide when registering for and using your account, and your location. You acknowledge and agree that matching you with a potential position does not amount to an endorsement of that position by Job.com.
We make no guarantee that we will be able to match you to a job or that any jobs posted on our Platform will meet your particular needs.
Job.com shall not be a party to any contract or other employment agreement between you and an Employer or Client and shall not be responsible in any way for the performance of any contract or employment offer made by an Employer or Client, or for the quality, safety, timeliness or any other aspect of such jobs offered by an Employer or Client and accepted by you.
We do not control the job listings submitted to the Platform by Clients and we give no warranty as to the accuracy, completeness, or reliability of those listings.
You acknowledge and agree that Job.com shall not be liable for the content of any job advertisements, Client or Employer information or any other advice / information that you find on the Platform
The Platform, which is free to Job Seekers, may present to Job Seekers advertisements of employment opportunities and other job-related content, including via links to content on third-party websites (“Job Ads”). Job Ads are created and provided by third parties over whom Job.com exercises no control; you acknowledge and understand that Job.com has no control over the content of Job Ads, links to or from Job Ads, or any conditions third parties might impose once a Job Seeker has submitted an application or left the Platform. For example, some of these third parties may attempt to charge Job Seekers a fee to apply to a particular job, although Job.com endeavors not to make such Job Ads available on the Platform.
If you leave the Job.com site and choose to enter a third-party website, you accept any terms and conditions imposed by that third-party.
Except for sponsored, featured or paid placements, the Job Ads contained on, or linked from, the Platform are indexed or posted in an automated manner. Job.com has no obligation to screen any Job Ads, or to include any Job Ads in its search results or other listings, and may exclude or remove any Job Ads from the Site for any or no reason. We cannot confirm the accuracy or completeness of any Job Ad or other information submitted by any Client / Employer or other user, including the identity of such Client / Employer or other user. Job.com assumes no responsibility, and disclaims all liability for the content, accuracy, completeness, legality, reliability, or availability of any Job Ads, company pages, screener questions and responses, and assessments. Additionally, Job.com may provide search options to narrow down Job Ads search results by job type categories (i.e., full-time, part-time, etc.). Such categories are created for you only as a convenience and may not directly or accurately reflect the content of the Job Ads. Job.com may reformat certain Job Ads to enable you to more clearly view them on a mobile device. While Job.com may in some circumstances be compensated by Employers / Clients who post Job Ads, Job.com displays Job Ads based on relevance, as determined by factors such as your search terms and other activity on the Platform. You are not permitted to use the Platform or its content other than for non-commercial purposes.
As a Client / Employer
When we post a Client / Employer’s job vacancy on the Platform, we use our technology to match that vacancy to Job Seekers registered on the Platform. Unless otherwise agreed, we may also, in our sole discretion, market your vacancy to Job Seekers using various other online and offline media that we own and operate or that are owned or operated by third parties.
The Platform is designed to help Clients / Employers identify potential candidates for their open positions. We do not, however, give any warranty as to the suitability of any Job Seeker for your position, nor do we verify, vet, or otherwise assume responsibility for the accuracy of the information such Job Seekers provide.
Prior to hiring a Job Seeker introduced to you by the Platform, you must enter into a Recruitment Contract with Job.com. The scope of the Recruitment Contract is limited to issues related to the fees payable to Job.com by the Client / Employer for its use of the Platform. The Recruitment Contract is not a contract of employment and Job.com will not be a party to, and assumes no obligations under, any agreement entered into between Client / Employer and Job Seeker related to Job Seeker’s employment.
License to use Client's and Employer’s name, trademarks and logos
Client / Employer agrees that we may use its organization name, trademarks, service marks, designs or logos, or any other marks (collectively, “IP Rights”) for the purposes of providing the recruitment services. Additionally, unless otherwise agreed in writing, any Client / Employer using the Platform agrees that we may (a) mention the Client or Employer's organization as a reference customer in our marketing materials (including, without limitation, on our websites and in our brochures) and (b) use the Client's / Employer’s IP Rights in connection with our marketing efforts, including, without limitation, by presenting examples of the services provided to and the materials published on behalf of Client / Employer.
Limitation of liability
Subject to applicable law, our total liability to the Client / Employer or any other organization in respect of any loss or damage under or in connection with the services provided by the Platform and Job.com shall not exceed the total amount of fees paid to us by such Client / Employer in the twelve months immediately preceding the incurring of such loss or damage.

CLAIMS OF 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 have a good faith belief that materials hosted by us 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:
- a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly being infringed upon;
- identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed upon (or if multiple copyrighted works located on the Platform are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works);
- identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow us to locate the material on the Platform;
- the name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address (if available) of the complaining party;
- 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
- 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 us a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA. Notices and counter-notices with respect to the Platform should be sent to Customer Services, Job.com, 108 Wild Basin Road Suite 250, Austin, TX 78746,
