Job Posting Terms
These Posting Terms were updated effective April 2015.
These Job Posting Terms set forth certain terms under which you ('You') may post Job Postings to the websites maintained by Dropout Club, including www.dropoutclub.org (all of such websites, the “Sites”). Dropoutclub may revise these Job Posting Terms at any time by posting an updated version to this Web page. You should visit this page periodically to review the most current Job Posting Terms because they are binding on You.
These Job Posting Terms constitute a binding agreement between You and Dropoutclub, LLC, and are deemed accepted by You each time that You post any Job Posting or otherwise use or access any Site for the purpose of posting, editing or deleting a Job Posting, or of monitoring responses by Members to the Job Posting. If You do not accept the Job Posting Terms stated here, do not post any Job Posting.
By posting a Job Posting, you consent to the inclusion of your company name and logo in any list of Employers maintained and publicized by Dropoutclub, and such Job Posting constitutes a license to Dropoutclub to do so. If you refuse to grant this consent and license, you can opt out of the inclusion of your company name and logo by emailing us at: email@example.com.
Employers who submit Job Postings must pay the fees as stated on our website. Each Employer permits Dropoutclub to store Your payment card information. You also agree to pay the applicable fees for Job Postings as they become due, plus all related taxes, and to reimburse us for all collection costs and interest for any overdue amounts. All fees and charges are nonrefundable, and there are no refunds or credits for partially used periods.

Dropoutclub disclaims all liability for damages caused by any such interruption or errors in functioning. Furthermore, Dropoutclub disclaims all liability for any malfunctioning, impossibility of access, or poor use conditions of the Sites or the Services due to inappropriate equipment, disturbances related to internet service providers, to the saturation of the internet network, or for any other reason.
THE DROPOUTCLUB SITES AND DROPOUTCLUB CONTENT ARE PROVIDED ON AN 'AS IS' BASIS WITHOUT ANY WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND. DROPOUTCLUB, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING THE WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. DROPOUTCLUB MAKES NO WARRANTIES ABOUT THE ACCURACY, RELIABILITY, COMPLETENESS, OR TIMELINESS OF THE DROPOUTCLUB CONTENT, THE SITES OR THE SERVICES.
Dropoutclub is not responsible, and makes no representations or warranties for the delivery of any messages sent through Dropoutclub to anyone. In addition, we neither warrant nor represent that Your use of the Service will not infringe the rights of third parties. Any material, service, or technology described or used on the Sites may be subject to intellectual property rights owned by third parties who have licensed such material, service, or technology to us.
The Sites act as, among other things, venues for (i) employers to post job opportunities and search for and evaluate job candidates and (ii) candidates to post resumes and Profiles and search for and evaluate job opportunities. Dropoutclub is not involved in, does not control, and is in no way responsible for any transaction between employers and candidates. As a result, Dropoutclub is not responsible for Content, the quality, safety or legality of the Job Postings or Profiles or other Content, the truth or accuracy of the Job Postings, the ability of employers to offer job opportunities to candidates or the ability of candidates to fill job openings, and Dropoutclub makes no representations about any Job Postings or Content on the Sites. If notified of any Content or other materials which allegedly do not conform to these Terms, Dropoutclub may in its sole and absolute discretion investigate the allegation and determine whether to remove the Content. While Dropoutclub reserves the right in its sole and absolute discretion to remove Content, Job Postings or other material from the Sites from time to time, Dropoutclub does not assume any obligation to do so and, to the extent permitted by law, disclaims any liability for failing to take any such action.
Dropoutclub forums provide a venue for individuals to network for professional and personal purposes and Dropoutclub does not screen or censor the Profiles or Content on the Sites. Dropoutclub is not involved in, does not control, and is in no way responsible for any communications between Members. Dropoutclub has no control over the accuracy, reliability, completeness, or timeliness of the Profiles or Content submitted on the Sites and makes no representations about any Profile or Content on the Sites.
Note that there are risks, including but not limited to the risk of physical harm, of dealing with strangers, underage persons or people acting under false pretenses. You assume all risks associated with dealing with other users with whom You come in contact through the Sites. By its very nature, other people’s information may be offensive, harmful or inaccurate, and in some cases will be mislabeled or deceptively labeled. We expect that You will use caution and common sense when using the Sites.
Because Member authentication on the Internet is difficult, Dropoutclub cannot and does not confirm that each Member is who they claim to be. Because we do not and cannot be involved in, control or be responsible for Member-to-Member dealings or control the behavior of participants on any Site, in the event that You have a dispute with one or more Members, You release Dropoutclub (and our agents and employees) from all claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential and direct and indirect) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes to the fullest extent permitted by law.

You understand and acknowledge that You have no ownership rights in Your account and that if You cancel Your Dropoutclub account or Your Dropoutclub account is terminated, all Your account information from Dropoutclub, including resumes, Profiles, and cover letters, will be marked as deleted in and may be deleted from Dropoutclub's databases and removed from any public area of the Sites.
