Terms and Conditions
December 4, 2012
If you register on our site, you agree to be bound by the terms in this agreement. It is your responsibility to read the document in full and understand it, as well as to check back regularly for updates or modifications. We reserve the right to alter this document at any time. The current terms will apply to you regardless of when you registered on our website.
The services we provide relate to resume and cover letter creation and distribution. Some services provide are free, while others require payment. When you register, you'll be presented with subscription plans and prompted to choose one. The membership features for our subscriptions are listed on this page.
You may pay for our services using a credit or debit card. The first payment will post immediately. Monthly service charges will accrue in advance and renew automatically for the same period as the original paid period. This is done for your convenience. When you sign up for services and provide your payment information, you agree to the automatic renewals and charges to the card you provide. These renewals and charges will occur without prior authorization from you; your authorization is your acceptance of these terms and provision of your payment information.
You have the option of canceling at any time if you would like to avoid future payments. You may do this by using the "Deactivate Account" feature, which you'll find in your member area settings. We will not refund your initial payment. If there are any chargebacks from your account, we reserve the right to deactivate your account immediately and to pursue a fee of $35.00 through collections. If there are any fees associated with collections or legal fees, you will be responsible for those fees. If your payment information changes, resulting in a chargeback, you will be responsible for any and all fees. You are responsible for keeping this information up to date. You will also be responsible for any and all taxes levied by any governmental authorities at the time of your payment.
All payments for our services are nonrefundable. There will be no refunds or returns for any reason. This includes your initial payment and all subsequent payments.
When you register on our site, you are telling us that all the information you are submitting is truthful and that you are accurately representing yourself. You are telling us you are age 13 or older, and that if you are under age 18, you have the permission and supervision of your parent or legal guardian to use our site. You also are affirming that you are taking responsible for the secrecy of your password and that you will not share your account with any other person(s). You agree that you abide by all governmental laws at all levels. If we suspect you have provided us with inaccurate information or have attempted to use this website in an illegal manner, we will terminate your account immediately.
Information You Provide
You must provide us with basic information to register on our site. Providing additional information is optional, but we require it to generate your resume. You may provide any information you want so long as it conforms to these terms of service. You are responsible for all content you upload and any harm that may result from that content. You are forbidden from infringing on any third party proprietary rights, including but not limited to trademarks, copyrights, patents, and trade secrets. When you submit information to our site, you verify that you own all relevant licenses, and authorize us to use that content as necessary to provide you with our services. You may not send or promote malicious code or "spam" through our website or any content which could be considered obscene, violent, or otherwise objectionable. You also are forbidden from linking to objectionable or malicious content. These standards are entirely at our discretion. You will not submit content that is libelous or slanderous or urges violent overthrow of the United States government or otherwise incites anyone to violent action.
If any of the content you submit falls under the proprietary jurisdiction of your past or current employer, you verify you have received that employer's permission to submit it to our website. You may not violate any laws which regulate electronic advertising, nor will you engage in "trolling." You also are forbidden from submitting excessively large files. This is again at our discretion.

Any questions or comments you submit to us may be used or disseminated for any purpose without compensation or prior notice. This could include improvements to our site or testimonials posted on our site based on your feedback.

We may do it at any time without providing prior notification to members, and we are not liable to you or any other member for any reason in the situation where we suspend or discontinue our services.

While we do not foresee or expect disputes between site members for reasons of the limited interaction between members, we would like to make it clear that we are in no way liable for any disputes which occur on or through or in conjunction to this site. This includes conflicts between users, or disputes between users and third parties. We are not liable for any claims or demands or damages involving either type of conflict.
Any actions which are taken pursuant to or relating to our website or services shall be governed by the laws of the state of Pennsylvania, excluding such state's conflicts of law rules. Any legal action which is taken by or against our company or which is in any way related to our site or services will be brought solely in either the applicable federal or state courts which are located in or with jurisdiction over Pennsylvania. This limitation is subject to our right to seek injunctive relief to enforce this agreement or to stop or prevent an infringement of property or any other rights in an applicable court in any jurisdiction we choose. By agreeing to these terms, you consent to personal jurisdiction and venue in the above referenced courts and also waive any right to challenge or object to that jurisdiction and venue.

We are also not responsible or liable for any injury or damages which may result from any of your activity on or pertaining to our website or services.

Limitations of Liability
Neither you nor any third party shall hold our company or its officers, directors, agents, or employees liable for any damages for any reason at any time under any circumstances. This includes situations where we have been advised of the possibility of said damages in advance, whether by you or a third party. At no time and on no occasion will our liability to your exceed the amount you paid to our company for services during the three month period prior to any cause of action and $50.00. California residents agree to waive California Civil Code Section 1542: "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."
In the case of any dispute, you agree that you will defend and indemnify the Company and any of our employees, directors, officers, or agents harmless from and against any liability, claim, demand, damage, or loss made by any third party which has arisen from your use of our content or services or resulting from a violation of our Terms and Conditions. It is our sole right at your expense to assume exclusive defense in any matter for which you are required to indemnify our company. If such an action is required, we will take all reasonable efforts to provide you with notice in advance.
Should we need to contact you at any time, we will do so using the email address you provided us with when you registered for our site. It is your responsibility to keep your email address up to date in our system. Unless we receive a notification that your address has bounced or is invalid, we will deem that any notices we have sent you have been received 24 hours after we have sent them.
If at any time any provision of this contract is deemed unenforceable under current laws, that portion will be void and severed from the whole. Such an instance will not nullify or void the remaining sections of the agreement.
