User Content is the sole responsibility of the person or entity that provided the User Content. You shall be solely responsible for your User Content and the consequences of posting, providing or publishing it.
B. Prohibited Types of User Content
The following list is intended to be illustrative of the types of User Content that are prohibited, but this is not an exhaustive list: You agree not to post or provide User Content that (i) may create a risk of harm to any person or property; (ii) provides instructional information about illegal activities; (iii) involves the transmission of junk or unsolicited mail or other communications, ‘phishing’ or ‘scamming’; (iv) provides links to material that is illegal or offensive, or targets or solicits personal information from anyone under the age of 18; (v) contains any information or content that we deem to be unlawful, harmful, abusive, racially or ethnically offensive, defamatory, infringing, invasive of personal privacy or publicity rights, harassing, humiliating to other people (publicly or otherwise), libelous, threatening, profane, or otherwise objectionable; (vi) contains any information or content that is illegal (including, without limitation, the disclosure of insider information under securities law or of another party’s trade secrets); (vii) contains any information or content that you do not have a right to make available under any law or under contractual or fiduciary relationships; (viii) contains any information or content that is false, misleading, or otherwise deceptive; or (ix) violates the Intellectual Property Rights (as defined below) or rights of privacy of any third party. For the purposes of this Agreement, “Intellectual Property Rights” means patent rights, copyright rights, mask work rights, moral rights, rights of publicity, trademark, trade dress and service mark rights, goodwill, trade secret rights and other intellectual property rights as may now exist or hereafter come into existence, and all applications therefore and registrations, renewals and extensions thereof, under the laws of any state, country, territory or other jurisdiction. If you are a Client providing or submitting Job Advertisements, you further agree that such content will not contain any personally identifiable information.
C. No Warranties or Obligations
You agree that Job For Newcomers makes no representations, warranties, promises or guarantees regarding any content provided or generated by third parties, including, without limitation, the content of messages, Job Advertisements and resumés. You further agree that Job For Newcomers acts as a passive conduit for the distribution, provision, and publication of User Content, and has no obligation to screen or verify the accuracy, legality, legitimacy, truthfulness, or completeness of User Content, and accordingly, you accept that Job For Newcomers is not responsible and has no liability for User Content. You understand that you may be exposed to User Content that is inaccurate, incomplete, illegal, misleading, false, offensive, constitutes spam, or is otherwise unsuited to your purpose, and you accept that it is your responsibility to verify the quality, accuracy, truthfulness, legality or reliability of User Content, including, without limitation, resumes/CVs and Job Advertisements and content of messages. Your reliance on any User Content is at your own risk.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, although Job For Newcomers has no obligation to screen User Content, to the extent that Job For Newcomers becomes or is made aware of User Content that may or does (i) violate the terms of this Agreement or any other Agreement you have with Job For Newcomers, or (ii) violate any law or regulation, or (iii) violate the rights of third parties, or (iv) create liability for Job For Newcomers or otherwise negatively impact Job For Newcomers, Job For Newcomers reserves the right to reject and/or remove such User Content, and suspend and/or terminate any User Account associated with such User Content.
D. User Content and the U.S. Communications Decency Act
Please note Section 230 of the U.S. Communications Decency Act (“CDA”) (and the equivalent or similar laws in your jurisdiction) is intended to exclude or limit the liability of online service providers such as Job For Newcomers, when such online service providers provide or make available access to third-party user generated content (see § 230 (c)(1) which states: No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider).
The decision by Job For Newcomers to remove or not post or distribute any User Content, does not by itself amount to participation in the creation of such User Content and, accordingly, does not constitute a waiver of the immunity afforded by the CDA. Additionally, § 230 (c)(2) of the CDA specifically provides: “No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be held liable on account of (A) any action voluntarily taken in good faith to restrict access to or availability of material that the provider or user considers to be obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy, excessively violent, harassing, or otherwise objectionable whether or not such material is constitutionally protected…”
E. User Interactions and Assumption of Risk
You understand and agree that Job For Newcomers does not, and cannot, confirm that each User is who he/she/they claim to be. We are not responsible for authenticating Users and therefore it is your responsibility to conduct the appropriate due diligence before communicating or interacting with other Users, including, without limitation, Job Seekers, employers, staffing agencies, and recruiters. You assume all risks associated with Users with whom you come into contact. If you have any disputes or issues with any User you agree to pursue any remedies directly with the applicable User and you release Job For Newcomers, its subsidiaries, and their respective employees, directors and agents from all claims, demands and damages of every kind (actual and consequential and direct and indirect) known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, to the fullest extent permitted by law.
F. Content Disclosure

For the avoidance of doubt, you agree that we have the right to disclose your identity to a third party who is claiming that any User Content you posted, provided or uploaded is fraudulent, false, or misleading or constitutes a violation of the law, or a violation of their intellectual property or ownership rights, or of their right to privacy.
3. USER CONTENT LICENSE GRANT
By posting, submitting, providing and/or otherwise making available any User Content, you expressly grant, and represent that you have a right to grant, to Job For Newcomers, a royalty-free, sublicensable (through multiple layers of sublicensees), perpetual, transferable, non-exclusive, worldwide license to use, sell, reproduce, adapt, translate, sublicense, publicly perform, publicly display, and make derivative works from and otherwise exploit, all such User Content in whole or in part, and in any form, media or technology, whether now known or hereafter developed, for the purposes of posting such User Content on the Job For Newcomers websites, distributing such User Content through the Job For Newcomers distribution and publishing network and in job alerts to job seekers, and to promote Job For Newcomers and the Services.

6. ADDITIONAL TERMS THAT APPLY TO JOB SEEKERS
As a Job Seeker, you can (i) use the Services to search for jobs, (ii) apply for jobs (“Job Applications”), (iii) receive job alert emails or text messages, where such features are available to you (“Job Alerts”), and (iv) include your resume and other applicable information in the Resume Database. For purposes of this Agreement, references to “resume” or “CV” shall also mean a curriculum vitae, profile, references, recommendations, and other similar written overviews or assessments of a person’s experience and qualifications.
If you have a Job For Newcomers account, provide your resume/CV to Job For Newcomers, and/or sign up for Job Alerts, you agree that we may (A) use the information you provide to send you information about Job Advertisements that may be of interest to you; and (B) display or provide your resume/CV and profile information (to the extent that you have not designated it as private) to an employer or recruiter who may be interested in candidates like you.
To the extent that you wish us to share your information and resume/CV with potential employers, recruiters, or staffing agencies (including, where you have submitted your resume/CV to the Resume Database or because you have applied to a Job Advertisement on a Job For Newcomers website), you consent to our sharing your resume/CV, together with any additional information you provide to us during the application process. This means that you give us a perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, royalty-free, worldwide license (and right to sub-license), of any rights, including intellectual property rights, in your resume/CV and any additional information you provide to us, to share or otherwise use such resume/CV and additional information as we reasonably require to fulfil the services we provide to you.
- Job Applications in General
By applying to a Job Advertisement on the Services, you give us permission to store your information on the Services and to share your information (including your resume/CV), with the entity that posted the Job Advertisement.
You can choose how to submit your Job Application using the options offered through the Services. If you elect to apply through a third-party account, such as Facebook or LinkedIn.com, you will be asked to log-in to the applicable account, and the profile, resume and other information that you have provided as part of any of those accounts will then be provided to the entity that posted the applicable Job Advertisement.
Once you submit a Job Application, your resume and other applicable information will be shared with the entity that posted the Job Advertisement as long as any parameters selected by that entity are met, where applicable. You should therefore ensure that the information you provide is complete and accurate, and only contains information that you are comfortable sharing.
If you ask Job For Newcomers to submit a message to any employer or third party or if you apply for a job using the Services, you accept that Job For Newcomers does not guarantee that the recipient entity will receive, access, view, or respond to your requests or Job Applications, or that the transmission of data will be error-free. Any screener questions provided by the entity posting a Job Advertisement are entirely in the control of that entity and if you require alternate screener questions or application process, you must contact the applicable entity directly.
- Applying to Job Advertisements on a Job For Newcomers Website
When you apply to a Job Advertisement on a Job For Newcomers website or through the app, if all parameters selected by the entity that posted the Job Advertisement are met, we will send the resume associated with your account (to the extent an account was created as described in Section 7.C. below).
If you have manually logged out of your account or if you have been automatically logged out of your account because of inaction or some other reason, we will ask you to input your email so we can verify your identity before we send the resume associated with your account. Once you receive the verification email and confirm your identity by following the instructions in the email, we will send out the resume associated with your account.
IMPORTANT: It is your responsibility to ensure that the resume associated with your account is always updated, current and accurate before you apply to a Job Advertisement or opt-in to the Resume Database, so an employer receives the most up-to-date information about you. In order to delete old resumes, edit your resume, or upload a new resume, please go to the Profile settings in your User account.
Additionally, although Job For Newcomers requests that companies maintain the confidentiality of the Job Applications and resumes/CVs they receive through the Services, Job For Newcomers cannot and does not guarantee that the information you provide will be held in confidence or properly secured by the applicable recipient.
- Account Creation
In addition to your ability to manually create a Job For Newcomers account yourself, a Job For Newcomers account will automatically be created for you in the following circumstances, if you don’t already have an account:
(a) When you sign up for job alerts with Job For Newcomers; or
(b) When you apply to a Job Advertisement on a Job For Newcomers website, using for example, the ‘Apply Now’ buttons.
When an account is automatically created for you, you will receive an email with your user name (which is usually your email address) and a link to reset your password. Whether or not you choose to reset your password, the account will exist under your email address and the resume associated with the action you took (e.g., applying for a job, signing-up for job alerts, etc.), will be connected with that account. So, before applying to a Job Advertisement, please ensure that your resume is up-to-date so that employers receive the most recent information about you.
If you do not wish to have a Job For Newcomers account, please contact email@example.com or go to your account settings and close your account.
- Job Alerts
You can manually sign up to receive job alerts by email/or SMS. In addition to a manual sign up, if you apply to Job Advertisements on a Job For Newcomers website and/or create an account, you may agree to receive email job alerts based on the type of role you selected. You can sign up for job alerts via SMS in a number of ways including by entering your telephone number in the Mobile Alerts section of your User Account. You can edit or change the type of job alerts want to receive by accessing the Job Alerts tab in your User account. You may opt out of job alerts by clicking on the unsubscribe link in your job alert email or by following the instructions in your SMS alert. You can also contact firstname.lastname@example.org, if you need assistance.
- Resume Database
Job For Newcomers has a feature which permits job seekers to include their resume/CV and other profile information in a resume database (the, “Resume Database”) to be stored on the Service.
Making Your Profile and Resume/CV Public: If you elect to make your resume/CV ‘public’ in your Account settings or during your account creation: (i) it will be added it to the Resume Database, (ii) your resume/CV and profile information (including your personal information, to the extent provided in your resume or profile) will be available to be searched, viewed, or downloaded by any persons or entities that have access rights to the Resume Database, (iii) your resume/CV will be visible in whole or in part via search results within the Resume Database, and (iv) your resume/CV and profile information will be visible in part to Clients with active Job Ads to invite or rate candidates to apply.
If you add your resume/CV to the Resume Database, then you are:
- Consenting to Job For Newcomers matching words, skills, or certifications that are present or implied in your resume or other application materials to words, skills, or certifications present or implied in a Job Advertisement or an employer’s or recruiter’s search of terms, and if there are any matches, to present matching resumes/CVs to the applicable employer or recruiter and to send information to you about Job Advertisements that may be of interest to you.
