GENERAL USE OF THE SERVICE
FINDING AND APPLYING TO JOBS
By using Search Party, you are asking Search Party to find Job Listing(s), link you to them on Search Party and third-party website(s), submit your application or other information through the Service, Third Party Services, Employers and Advertisers; you are sending Your Profile to Search Party, and you are requesting and authorizing Search Party to make available such Profile to the applicable Third Party Services, Employer(s) and Advertiser(s) for each Job Listing(s) and Ad(s).
You hereby represent that you have the authority to provide Your Profile to Search Party, and you expressly appoint Search Party and its employees, agents, contractors, consultants and vendors as your agent with limited power of attorney to access any Third Party Services and Employer Services on your behalf where necessary to provide the Service. You must provide true and accurate information. A Third Party Service’s and Employer’s terms and conditions and privacy policies are generally found on the Third Party Service’s and Employer’s website. Your participation in the Service indicates your acceptance of such terms and conditions and privacy policies for such Third Party Services and Employers.
You further agree to Search Party’s performance of automated or manual processing in relation to your application, as such processing is an essential part of this Agreement.
Once you provide information to a Third Party Service, Employer and/or Advertiser (whether in the form of a job application, resume, email, interview material, click, visit, download, purchase or otherwise), Search Party does not have control over the Third Party Service’s, Employer’s and/or Advertiser’s use or disclosure of that information. If you want to request the Third Party Service, Employer and/or Advertiser delete, modify, or maintain confidence over any such information, you must make such a request directly to the Third Party Service, Employer and/or Advertiser.
You acknowledge and agree that Search Party may need to assemble your application materials, resume, answers to screener questions, assessment responses and other information you provide to Search Party into one document, and you agree that in doing so, Search Party assembles these application materials on your behalf. When you apply to a job using the Service, Search Party will attempt to send your application to the contact information that the Employer, Advertiser or their Agent has made available, which may include sending your application to an Applicant Tracking System (ATS) or other service provider selected by the Employer or Advertiser. By applying for a job through Search Party, you agree to Employer’s or Advertiser’s use of such service providers, and acknowledge that such use may involve an intermediary’s access to job applications sent to its Employer or Advertiser client. We cannot guarantee that such messages and applications will be delivered, received, accessed, read or acted upon. Search Party also does not guarantee that any Employer or Advertiser will receive, be notified about, access, read or respond to any such resume or other application material, or that there will be no mistakes in the transmission or storage of the data. We cannot vouch for the validity of the contact information made available by Employers or Advertisers. If the electronic destination available to Search Party is incorrect, your application materials will not be sent to the intended recipient of the application. Further, Search Party does not guarantee that the interface will be error-free.
The Service may include a feature that allows you to import, where applicable, certain information. You are responsible for verifying the accuracy of the information that is imported. The Services also may include functionality designed to read data from images (for example, a resume) photographed using a mobile device or computer. This functionality is limited to those forms or items that the Service can read. If the form or other item you photograph and submit through the Service is not supported or is unreadable, you may need to manually enter your data.
You may be offered the ability to import data from other sources in addition to those above. You may provide us with your authorization and information to allow us to obtain your data from third parties on your behalf to use the Service. You represent that you have the necessary rights to grant us access to your accounts with third parties. Third parties are not affiliated with or endorsed or sponsored by us.
Please note that Job Listings may expire between the time your application is submitted via the Service and from the time it is received. Search Party has no responsibility for expired Job Listings or for delivering applications prior to a Job Listing’s expiration, and Search Party and its third party providers may store your application and related information regardless of whether a Job Listing has been closed or is no longer available. We also cannot vouch for the technical capabilities of any Third Party Services, including but not limited to ATSs. Third Party Services, including ATSs used by Employers and Advertisers, may disclaim liability for technical malfunctions, including the failure in the delivery of applications. We are not responsible if an ATS rejects or fails to deliver an application to an Employer or Advertiser for any reason. If you do not feel comfortable sending an application or messages in this manner, or having your application or messages stored by Search Party on Search Party’s or third party providers’ servers, do not use the Service and please send your application or messages directly to the Employer or Advertiser by whatever other method you so choose, including the public mail system. You may contact the Employer or Advertiser directly to find alternative methods of application if you do not wish to apply through Search Party. By using the Service, you fully consent to the above.
By using Search Party, you agree that Search Party is not responsible for the content of the Employer’s or Advertiser’s job application, messages, screener questions, skills assessments, products, services or their format or method of delivery, and that Search Party does not guarantee receipt of your application by the Employer or Advertiser, or your receipt of messages from the Employer or Advertiser. Please note that Search Party does not choose the questions asked by Employers and Advertisers or decide the job qualification criteria of Employers and Advertisers. Employers and Advertisers are solely responsible for compliance with all applicable laws, including the Fair Credit Reporting Act and similar laws, anti-discrimination laws such as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and any applicable data protection or privacy laws. Employers and Advertisers are responsible for offering alternative methods of screening, if so required by the Americans with Disabilities Act or any similar law. You must contact the Employer or Advertiser if you require alternative methods of screening. Some questions may be labeled as Optional, indicating only that the application may be submitted to the Employer or Advertiser without providing an answer. Search Party cannot guarantee that the Employer or Advertiser will consider such an application or make a particular determination with regard to such an application. Search Party does not guarantee the identity of an Employer or Advertiser or any individuals working for any Employers and Advertisers, and cautions Job Seekers when applying to jobs. Search Party cannot make any guarantee regarding health and safety measures in an Employer’s or Advertiser’s hiring or interviewing process. Search Party recommends Job Seekers follow personal health and safety best practices as recommended by the World Health Organization or similar institution. Search Party does not guarantee the validity of a job offer and cautions Job Seekers to verify the validity of a job offer before taking an adverse action regarding their current employment situations. Job Seekers are solely responsible for verifying the accuracy of any Employer, Advertiser, job offer or offer of any kind.
By using the Service and answering screener questions, you acknowledge that Employers and Advertisers may send out rejection notices if your answers do not match the answers sought by the Employer or Advertiser, and you acknowledge that Search Party has no discretion in the transmission of these rejections.
By using the Service and answering screener questions, you acknowledge that Employers and Advertisers may schedule interviews with Job Seekers who meet criteria (based on information the Job Seeker has provided to Search Party, such as answers to screener questions, resume, and Search Party Assessment Responses) that the Employers or Advertisers have selected, and based on the Employers’ or Advertisers’ availability. You agree that Search Party has no discretion in the transmission or storage of these interview invitations, that transmission or storage is not guaranteed, and that the availability or criteria the Employer or Advertiser provided may not be accurate. Search Party may request that Job Seekers confirm their interest in the position before scheduling an interview. It is ultimately your and the Employer’s or Advertiser’s responsibility to confirm whether any interviews were scheduled, or to reschedule or cancel interviews if necessary. The decision of who to interview is decided solely by the Employer or Advertiser, who can choose to interview any Job Seeker at any time.
The sole responsibility for the content of any screening tools, any requests for interviews or offers made, any issues arising from an acceptance or denial of employment, and any other issues arising from the use of screening tools, is solely with Employers, Advertisers or Job Seekers as applicable.
Search Party may offer you resume review, resume scan, offer coaching, live video consulting sessions, writing services, general career guidance, or other consultation services (collectively, “Career Services” which are a part of the Service as defined herein). By using Career Services, you request and consent that Search Party, or a Search Party vendor, provide you with the service you select. You may only use Career Services for advice concerning your own resume, offer, or employment situation and not another person’s. As a user of the Service, Search Party may also, from time to time, provide you career or hiring guides via blog posts, email, or other channels as part of its services to you. For example, Search Party may provide tips on finding a job, improving your resume or how to use your resume effectively in the job application process, commonly asked interview questions, next steps after you have submitted an application, and how to prepare for a new job after you have been hired. Search Party offers these Career Services as optional guidelines for its users and all liability with respect to actions taken or not taken based on the contents of such Career Services are hereby expressly disclaimed.
When filling out forms associated with Career Services, you agree to provide complete and accurate information. Any career-related or hiring-related information, feedback, guides or other content provided by Search Party, or Search Party’s vendor, through Career Services or otherwise, is for informational purposes only, and is in no way to be construed as professional career counseling or staffing services. You understand that Search Party may give suggestions or information regarding best-practices, however, you understand that it is ultimately your responsibility to determine how to pursue your job search or candidate search.
You further understand that in providing any such career or hiring guides and the Service, Search Party is not acting as a job placement agency, employment agency or staffing firm. You acknowledge and agree that Search Party is not procuring employees for Employers or Advertisers or procuring opportunities to work for Job Seekers.
You are responsible for reviewing any career or hiring-related information provided to you, for example, for accuracy and completeness. You are also responsible for editing the information before you use it, for example, for an employment application. Search Party is not responsible for the accuracy or completeness of any information that Search Party or its vendor provides you.
You understand that by using Career Services, the Service, or referring to or using any career or hiring information, you are not guaranteed job interviews, job placement, assurance of being hired, or a higher salary or increased benefit, and you take full responsibility for use of these services or information. Search Party has no control nor participates in the hiring or decision-making process regarding Employer or Advertiser hiring efforts.
COMMUNICATION AND VERIFICATION
You acknowledge that as part of its efforts to combat fraud and spam, Search Party may require that users verify their email address and phone number. When you use the Service, you agree that you may be required to verify your email address and phone number, and that failure to verify may lead to your use of the Service being limited or terminated.
You understand and agree, for any text messages sent to you in connection with the Service, that: (a) message frequency may vary, (b) message and data rates may apply, and Search Party is not responsible for these charges, (c) you may reply HELP for information, (d) you can reply STOP to opt out at any time (though if you do, you agree to receive a single message confirming your opt-out) and (e) neither Search Party nor mobile carriers involved in the text messaging are liable for delayed or undelivered messages.
Except as provided by law, all purchased Services, including subscriptions, are final and non-refundable. If you believe that Search Party has charged you in error, you must contact Search Party within 30 days of such charge. No refunds will be given for any charges more than 30 days old. Search Party reserves the right to refuse a refund request if it reasonably believes or suspects (i) that you are trying to unfairly exploit this refund policy, for example, by making repetitive refund requests in respect of the same product or feature; (ii) that you are in breach of the terms of this Agreement; (iii) that you are using any of the Service fraudulently. If you breach any clause of this Agreement, all payments are non-refundable and we may bill you for the remainder of the payments due for the purchased Services.

To expedite resolution and control the cost of any dispute, controversy, or claim related to these Terms of Service (each a "Dispute" and collectively, the “Disputes”) brought by either you or us (individually, a “Party” and collectively, the “Parties”), the Parties agree to first attempt to negotiate any Dispute (except those Disputes expressly provided below) informally for at least thirty (30) days before initiating arbitration. Such informal negotiations commence upon written notice from one Party to the other Party.
If the Parties are unable to resolve a Dispute through informal negotiations, the Dispute (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) will be finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration. You understand that without this provision, you would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") and, where appropriate, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes ("AAA Consumer Rules"), both of which are available at the AAA website www.adr.org. Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by the AAA Consumer Rules and, where appropriate, limited by the AAA Consumer Rules. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone, or online. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by either Party. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so. Except where otherwise required by the applicable AAA rules or applicable law, the arbitration will take place in New York County, NY. Except as otherwise provided herein, the Parties may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator. If for any reason, a Dispute proceeds in court rather than arbitration, the Dispute shall be commenced or prosecuted in the state and federal courts located in New York County, NY, and the Parties hereby consent to, and waive all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction, and forum non conveniens with respect to venue and jurisdiction in such state and federal courts. Application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and the Uniform Computer Information Transaction Act (UCITA) are excluded from these Terms of Service. In no event shall any Dispute brought by either Party related in any way to the Service be commenced more than one (1) years after the cause of action arose. If this provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then neither Party will elect to arbitrate any Dispute falling within that portion of this provision found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Dispute shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within the courts listed for jurisdiction above, and the Parties agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.
The Parties agree that any arbitration shall be limited to the Dispute between the Parties individually. To the full extent permitted by law, (a) no arbitration shall be joined with any other proceeding; (b) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (c) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons.
Exceptions to Informal Negotiations and Arbitration
The Parties agree that the following Disputes are not subject to the above provisions concerning informal negotiations and binding arbitration: (a) any Disputes seeking to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of, any of the intellectual property rights of a Party; (b) any Dispute related to, or arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, invasion of privacy, or unauthorized use; and (c) any claim for injunctive relief. If this provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then neither Party will elect to arbitrate any Dispute falling within that portion of this provision found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Dispute shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within the courts listed for jurisdiction above, and the Parties agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.
