Terms and Conditions
These Terms constitute a legally binding agreement between Joblist and you concerning your use of the Service and contain important provisions affecting your rights, including by requiring arbitration of claims on an individual, rather than class wide, basis, as outlined below. We encourage you to print these Terms or save them to your device or computer for reference. Your access to and use of the Service is conditioned upon your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms. These Terms apply to all visitors, users, and others who access or use the Service.
You must be 18 years of age or older to visit or use the Service and, if using the Service on behalf of a company or employer, authorized to act for and bind, and hereby do bind, the company or employer to these Terms.
Disclaimer for Third-Party Content
Our Service enables you to search, save, and receive updates for job postings made available by third parties. Job Seekers may also apply for jobs, and Employers may post jobs, through the Service. If you select a job posting that redirects to an external third-party website, you will be redirected to that website for more information. If an Employer has posted a job using the Service, you may review and apply for that job as outlined below. You acknowledge and agree that we are a listing service only and have no responsibility for the content or accuracy, completeness, or lawfulness of the listings or the jobs they may describe. You are solely responsible for investigating the job postings you choose to select. Joblist may review Employer posts in its discretion, but it is not responsible for screening or censoring third-party job postings or content. Joblist does not control the hiring process or communications between consumers and any third-party employers. Joblist makes no representations or warranties regarding any third-party content, including job postings or applications. Under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act (and similar laws), Joblist is a platform service and not the publisher or speaker of any third-party content.
Dispute Resolution and Mandatory Arbitration
Binding Arbitration and Waiver of Class Actions. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE PARTIES AGREE TO RESOLVE ALL CLAIMS AGAINST EACH OTHER OR AGAINST COMPANY ENTITIES BY BINDING ARBITRATION IN SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA BEFORE ONE ARBITRATOR. ANY ELECTION TO ARBITRATE BY ONE PARTY SHALL BE FINAL AND BINDING ON THE OTHER. THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY'S INDIVIDUAL CLAIMS. THE PARTIES AGREE TO WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO JOIN CLAIMS WITH OTHERS OR OTHERWISE PROCEED IN A CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT, WITHOUT THIS PROVISION, YOU WOULD HAVE HAD THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT WITH A JURY OR PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. EACH PARTY KNOWINGLY, INTENTIONALLY, AND VOLUNTARILY WAIVES ANY RIGHT EACH MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO A CLASS ACTION. This arbitration provision will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration laws. The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS pursuant to its "Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures," or another arbitrator or arbitral forum if JAMS is unavailable, and the arbitrator shall apply California laws. For more information, see https://www.jamsadr.com. The arbitration may be conducted in person or via document submission, telephone, or email, but the arbitration location shall be in the county where you reside. If you reside outside the United States and bring a Claim outside the United States, the laws may allow you to bring a Claim where you reside. For residents of Canada, the European Economic Area, Switzerland, or the United Kingdom, see https://adric.ca/ and https://ec.europa.eu/odr as applicable. Upon request, or if you show that arbitration fees would be cost prohibitive, we will pay your initial consumer arbitration fee of $250 to JAMS. Notwithstanding this arbitration provision, you may assert a Claim on an individual basis in small claims court if the Claim seeks $2,500 or less. The arbitrator may award the same damages or other relief available in court. Nothing herein shall limit rights to seek a public injunction if allowed by law. If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found to be invalid or unenforceable, that provision shall be severed with the remaining provisions continuing in full force and effect. This arbitration agreement shall survive termination.
Provisional Remedies, Venue. THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE DOES NOT PRECLUDE THE PARTIES FROM SEEKING PROVISIONAL REMEDIES IN AID OF ARBITRATION, INCLUDING ORDERS TO STAY COURT ACTION OR COMPEL ARBITRATION, OR FROM APPLYING TO A COURT FOR A TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER OR PRELIMINARY INJUNCTION, INCLUDING TO PRESERVE INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS, IN STATE OR FEDERAL COURTS IN SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA. THE PARTIES WAIVE ANY OBJECTION TO PERSONAL JURISDICTION AND VENUE IN SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA.
Choice of Law. SUBJECT TO THE ABOVE, THESE TERMS SHALL BE INTERPRETED AS THOUGH EXECUTED IN SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA AND SHALL BE GOVERNED BY CALIFORNIA LAWS WITHOUT REGARD TO CONFLICT OF LAW PRINCIPLES.

General. If you create an account, such as through email or Google or other third-party sign-up, you warrant that your information is accurate and authorized. If you have an account for both Job Seeker and Employer capabilities, you may switch between your account modes in your settings.

Job Seekers. Job Seekers may apply for jobs through the Service, either through their account, by providing information through the Service, or by clicking a job posting to be redirected to a third-party website for further action, depending on the type of Employer listing. Unless Job Seekers are redirected to a third-party website, Job Seekers will be requested to provide their name, resume (which may be uploaded and virus scanned or manually typed using a text field), and other information, which will be provided to the respective Employer(s). Please carefully choose what to submit as Job Seekers cannot see or manage their applications after they are submitted.

Job Seekers. Job Seekers further agree to only submit applications using real, accurate information about themselves and to only use the Service in compliance with these Terms and all applicable laws. By applying for a job using the Service, Job Seekers consent to their job application being shared with third parties interested in contacting them about their application.

Employers agree they have all appropriate intellectual property and other rights to post content using the Service, including to any trademarks, logos, and copyrights, and to provide any licenses outlined in these Terms. Employers should use easily understandable language and describe the required duties, qualifications, and compensation, including, if applicable, any part time, independent contractor, or commission terms.

If you are an Employer posting a job through the Service, it is your responsibility to ensure that your posting and job comply with all applicable laws. Employers agree that they are solely responsible for any liability arising out of their job posting and any material arising out of such posting, including email responses or links to which Job Seekers are redirected, and that they will defend and indemnify Joblist for any related claims as outlined below. While Employers may include those hiring for their own organization as well as recruiters, staffing agencies, etc., anyone posting a job through the Service agrees to comply with these Terms on behalf of themself as well as the hiring organization and to defend and indemnify Joblist for any job posting.
Job postings and applications are subject to review, including for compliance with these Terms and for viruses or other harmful content, and subject to rejection and removal. However, Joblist is under no obligation to review or take action against any content and has no liability for third-party content.
Employers agree that Joblist may be unable to remove job postings and other content (including intellectual property) once they have been distributed to the public, including to partners for listing jobs or search engines.

Payments are handled through Stripe, and you consent to your payment method to be charged for all outstanding amounts. You agree to only provide accurate and complete billing and payment information; and you represent that you are authorized to use the payment method for your purchase.
