Welcome to startjobs.net. Please read this Terms of Service Agreement carefully (hereinafter, “Terms of Service” or “Agreement”).
1. Who we are
We are an online consumer service that introduces consumers such as Yourself to certain of our participating third party partners who have expressed a general willingness to review Your information and determine if they are willing to provide You with the services or products that prompted your visit to our Website, including employment opportunities.
2. User Agreement

If You wish to opt-out from receiving additional email offers, advertisements and promotions relating to the Website, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or click the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any emails You receive from StartJobs.
Please allow 10 days for StartJobs to remove you from any of its mailing lists. Thereafter, You should not receive any further email offers, advertisements and promotions from this Website. However you may still receive promotional communications from our TPPs with whom we have shared Your information. To stop receiving further communications from these TPPs, You will need to contact them directly in order to opt-out.

Waiver of the Do Not Call Registry. In order to provide You the Service, You are expressly giving Your permission to provide any information collected on this Website to our TPPs. As such, You are expressly giving Your permission to such TPPs to contact You by mail, email, text messaging or telephone. By registering and using this Website, You agree that such act constitutes a purchase, an inquiry and/or an application for purposes of the Amended Telemarketing Sales Rule, 16 CFR §310 et seq. (the "ATSR"). Notwithstanding that Your telephone number may be listed on the Federal Trade Commission's Do-Not-Call List (or a state do-not-call) list, You have authorized us to contact You via telemarketing in accordance with the ATSR. Moreover, by registering with, or requesting information from, a third-party advertiser through the Website or other advertisement media made available by us (e.g., email marketing), You agree that such action shall constitute a purchase, an inquiry and/or an application with the respective third-party advertiser for purposes of the ATSR and You may be contacted via email, direct mail and/or telemarketing by such third-party advertiser in accordance with the ATSR. If, at any time, You do not wish to be bound by these conditions or You are unsatisfied with the Website, its content or other legal notices, You agree that Your sole and exclusive remedy is to discontinue using this Website.

You further acknowledge and agree that we are not acting as Your agent or broker and are not recommending any particular employment opportunity, service, product, or TPP to You. Any compensation we may receive is paid by the TPP for advertising services we provide to them.
No Warranties. You understand that the requirements for a particular employment opportunity, service, or product promoted on the Website are made by the individual TPP, and we do not endorse, warrant, or guarantee any employment opportunity, service, or product promoted on the Website by TPPs.

THIS WEBSITE, INCLUDING THE WEBSITE CONTENT IS PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE,” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. WITHOUT LIMITATION TO THE FOREGOING, StartJobs, AND ITS PARENT, SUBSIDIARIES, PARTNERS, AGENTS, AFFILIATES, LICENSORS, ADVERTISORS, SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO: (i) ANY WARRANTIES CONCERNING THE AVAILABILITY, ACCURACY, APPROPRIATENESS, RELIABILITY, TIMELINESS, USEFULNESS, OR OTHERWISE OF THE WEBSITE, THE WEBSITE CONTENT, AND ALL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES POSTED ON THE WEBSITE; AND (ii) ANY WARRANTIES OF TITLE, WARRANTY OF NON-INFRINGEMENT, WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

17. Waiver of Liability
YOU HEREBY AGREE TO WAIVE ALL LAWS THAT MAY LIMIT THE EFFICACY OF SUCH RELEASES. FOR EXAMPLE, YOU SPECIFICALLY AGREE TO WAIVE THE PROVISIONS OF CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE SECTION 1542, WHICH PROVIDES; “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IS KNOWN BY HIM, MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.”

You agree to defend, indemnify and hold StartJobs, its parents, subsidiaries, partners, agents, affiliates, licensors, advertisers, successors and assigns and their respective officers, directors, employees and shareholders (collectively, the “Indemnitees”) harmless from any and all claims, actions, demands, causes of action, and other proceedings (individually, "Claim," and collectively, "Claims"), including but not limited to legal costs and fees, and providing sole and exclusive control of the defense of any action to StartJobs, including the choice of legal counsel and all related settlement negotiations, arising out of or relating to: (i) the relationship between You and StartJobs, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory; (ii) Your breach of this Agreement, including without limitation any representation or warranty contained in this Agreement; (iii) Your access to or use of the Service; (iv) Your provision to StartJobs or any of the Indemnitees of information or other data; or (v) Your violation or alleged violation of any foreign or domestic, international, federal, state, or local law or regulation; or (vi) Your violation or alleged violation of any third party's copyrights, trademarks, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights. The Indemnitees each have the individual right, but not the obligation, to participate through counsel of their choice in any defense by You of any Claim as to which You are required to defend, indemnify, or hold harmless any, each, and/or all Indemnitees. You may not settle any Claim without the prior written consent of the concerned Indemnitees.

YOU KNOWINGLY AND FREELY ASSUME ALL RISK WHEN USING THE SERVICE. YOU, ON BEHALF OF YOURSELF, YOUR PERSONAL REPRESENTATIVES, AND YOUR HEIRS, HEREBY AGREE TO RELEASE, REMISE AND FOREVER DISCHARGE StartJobs AND ITS AFFILLIATES, PARTNERS, SERVICE PROVIDERS, CLIENTS, VENDORS, AND CONTRACTORS AND EACH OF THEIR RESPECTIVE AGENTS, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, AND ALL OTHER RELATED PERSONS OR ENTITIES FROM ANY AND ALL MANNER OF RIGHTS, CLAIMS, COMPLAINTS, DEMANDS, CAUSES OF ACTION, PROCEEDINGS, LIABLITIES, OBLIGATIONS, LEGAL FEES, COSTS, AND DISBURSEMENTS OF ANY NATURE WHATSOEVER, WHETHER KNOWN OR UNKNOWN, WHICH NOW OR HEREAFTER ARISE FROM, RELATE TO, OR ARE CONNECTED WITH YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE TO ANY OF YOUR COMPUTERS OR DATA. THE SERVICE MAY CONTAIN BUGS, ERRORS, PROBLEMS, OR OTHER LIMITATIONS.
21. Dealings with Third Parties
Your correspondence or business dealings with any TPP as a result of Your use of the Website and participation in the Service, including, but not limited to, business dealings with the TPPs, their terms, conditions, warranties, and representations associated with such dealings, are solely between You and such TPP. You agree that StartJobs shall not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as the result of any such dealings or as the result of the presence of such TPP on the Website.
StartJobs does not: (i) guarantee the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any information provided by any TPP that is accessible on or through the Website; or (ii) adopt, endorse, or accept responsibility for the accuracy or reliability of any opinion, advice or statement made by any TPP by means of the Website. Under no circumstances will StartJobs be responsible for any loss or damage resulting from Your reliance on information or other content posted through the Website transmitted to or by any TPP.
22. Dispute Resolution
Binding Arbitration. This Agreement will be interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of Florida, without regard to the conflicts of laws principles thereof. The parties agree that any and all disputes, claims or controversies arising out of or relating to the Agreement, its interpretation, performance, or breach, that are not resolved by informal negotiation within thirty (30) days (or any mutually agreed extension of time), shall be submitted to final and binding arbitration before a single arbitrator of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in Miami, Florida. Either party may commence the arbitration process called for herein by submitting a written demand for arbitration with the AAA, and providing a copy to the other party. The arbitration will be conducted in accordance with the provisions of the AAA’s Commercial Dispute Resolutions Procedures in effect at the time of submission of the demand for arbitration. The costs of arbitration plus reasonable attorneys’ fees (including fees for the value of services provided by in house counsel) shall be awarded to the prevailing party in such arbitration. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in the Eleventh Judicial Circuit Court of Florida or the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the following shall not be subject to arbitration and may be adjudicated only in the Eleventh Judicial Circuit Court of Florida, or the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida: (i) any dispute, controversy, or claim relating to or contesting the validity of StartJobs’s proprietary rights, including without limitation, trademarks, service marks, copyrights, or trade secrets; or, (ii) an action by a party for temporary, preliminary, or permanent injunctive relief, whether prohibitive or mandatory, or other provisional relief.
Restrictions Against Joinder of Claims. You and StartJobs agree that any arbitration shall be limited to each Claim individually. YOU AND StartJobs HEREBY AGREE THAT EACH MAY ONLY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER IN YOUR OR StartJobs’S INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. In the event that this specific provision is found to be unenforceable in a Court of Competent Jurisdiction, the Claim will still be finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration upon the election of either party, and any election to arbitrate by one party shall be final and binding on the other(s). In addition: (1) no arbitration shall be joined with any other arbitration, and (2) there is no right for any Claim to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or to employ class action procedures, and (3) there is no right of authority for any dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf either of the general public or any other individuals.
Remedies in Aid of Arbitration; Equitable Relief. This agreement to arbitrate will not preclude You or StartJobs from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration, including without limitation orders to stay a court action, compel arbitration or confirm an arbitral award, from a Court of Competent Jurisdiction. Furthermore, this agreement to arbitrate will not preclude You or StartJobs from applying to a court of competent jurisdiction for a temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction, or other interim or conservatory relief, as necessary. As used throughout, "Court of Competent Jurisdiction" means only the Eleventh Judicial Circuit Court of Florida or the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida.
Waiver of Jury Trial and Class Actions. BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND StartJobs ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. YOU AND StartJobs AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. ANY ARBITRATION WILL TAKE PLACE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS; CLASS ARBITRATIONS AND CLASS ACTIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED.
23. Waiver and Severability of Terms
The failure StartJobs to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of the Agreement is found by a Court of Competent Jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that such Court of Competent Jurisdiction should endeavor to give effect to the parties' intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the Agreement remain in full force and effect.
24. Entire Agreement
This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between You and StartJobs and governs Your use of the Website and Service, superseding any prior agreements. You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when You use or purchase other StartJobs services, affiliated services, third party content or third party software.
25. Statute of Limitations
YOU AGREE THAT REGARDLESS OF ANY STATUTE OR LAW TO THE CONTRARY, ANY CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE USE OF THE SERVICE OR THE AGREEMENT MUST BE FILED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER SUCH CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION AROSE OR BE FOREVER BARRED.
All notices by You under this Agreement must be delivered in writing by courier, by electronic facsimile, or by certified or registered mail (postage prepaid and return receipt requested) to StartJobs’s address set forth on the Website, as appropriate. Such notice will be effective upon receipt or three business days after being deposited in the mail, whichever occurs sooner. StartJobs may deliver a notice to You by posting of a general notice on the Website, which will be effective 48 hours after posting to the Website.
By StartJobs. WITHOUT LIMITING ANY OTHER PROVISION OF THIS AGREEMENT, StartJobs RESERVES THE RIGHT TO, IN StartJobs’S SOLE DISCRETION AND WITHOUT NOTICE OR LIABILITY, DENY USE OF THE SERVICE TO ANY PERSON FOR ANY REASON OR FOR NO REASON AT ALL, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION FOR ANY BREACH OR SUSPECTED BREACH OF ANY REPRESENTATION, WARRANTY, OR COVENANT CONTAINED IN THIS AGREEMENT, OR OF ANY APPLICABLE LAW OR REGULATION.
Automatic Termination Upon Breach By You. This Agreement shall automatically terminate in the event that You breach any of this Agreement's representations, warranties, or covenants. Such termination shall be automatic, and shall not require any action by StartJobs.
Effect of Termination. Any termination of this Agreement automatically terminates all rights and licenses granted to You under this Agreement, including all rights to use the Service. Upon termination, StartJobs may, but has no obligation to, and in StartJobs’s sole discretion, rescind any services and/or delete from StartJobs’s systems all Your Information and any other files or information that You made available to StartJobs or that otherwise relate to Your use of the Service. Upon termination, You shall cease any use of the Service. Subsequent to termination, StartJobs reserves the right to exercise whatever means it deems necessary to prevent Your unauthorized use of the Service, including without limitation technological barriers such as IP blocking and direct contact with Your Internet Service Provider.
Legal Action. If StartJobs, in StartJobs’s discretion, takes legal action against You in connection with any actual or suspected breach of this Agreement, StartJobs will be entitled to recover from You as part of such legal action, and You agree to pay, StartJobs’s reasonable costs and attorneys' fees incurred as a result of such legal action. The StartJobs’s Parties will have no legal obligation or other liability to You or to any third party arising out of or relating to any termination of this Agreement.
