ResumeSpider LIABILITY

ResumeSpider is only a venue. The Website acts as a venue (i) for companies to receive resumes and (ii) for candidates to distribute their own resumes for the purpose of advising employers and recruiters of their availability for job opportunities for themselves. ResumeSpider does not screen or censor the profiles or other information. ResumeSpider is not involved in the actual transaction between Member Companies and / or companies and candidates. As a result, ResumeSpider has no control over the quality, safety or legality of the jobs or profiles posted, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of companies to offer job opportunities to candidates or the ability of candidates to fill job openings. Note that there are risks, including, but not limited to, the risk of physical harm, of dealing with strangers, and of underage persons or people acting under false pretenses.

User assumes all risks associated with dealing with other users with whom user comes in contact through the Website. Because user authentication on the Internet is difficult, ResumeSpider cannot, and does not, confirm that each user is who they claim to be. Because ResumeSpider cannot, and does not, become involved in user-to-user dealings or control the behavior of participants on ResumeSpider, in the event that user has a dispute with one or more users, user releases ResumeSpider (and ResumeSpider agents and employees) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential, 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. If user is a California resident, user waives California Civil Code d1542, which says: “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 if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”
