Unless otherwise specified in the Terms, all SNS Content shall be considered to be Your Content (as defined in Section 3.1) for all purposes of the Terms. Depending on the Third-Party Accounts you choose and subject to the privacy settings that you have set in such Third-Party Accounts, personally identifiable information that you post to your Third-Party Accounts may be available on and through your Account on Hire Direction Properties. Please note that if a Third-Party Account or associated service becomes unavailable or Hire Direction’ access to such Third-Party Account is terminated by the third-party service provider, then SNS Content will no longer be available on and through Hire Direction Properties. PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR THIRD-PARTY ACCOUNTS IS GOVERNED SOLELY BY YOUR AGREEMENT(S) WITH SUCH THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS, AND HIRE DIRECTION DISCLAIMS ANY LIABILITY FOR PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION THAT MAY BE PROVIDED TO IT BY SUCH THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS IN VIOLATION OF THE PRIVACY SETTINGS THAT YOU HAVE SET IN SUCH THIRD-PARTY ACCOUNTS. Hire Direction makes no effort to review any SNS Content for any purpose, including but not limited to, for accuracy, legality or noninfringement, and Hire Direction is not responsible for any SNS Content.

If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or Hire Direction has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, Hire Direction has the right to suspend or terminate your Account and refuse any and all current or future use of Hire Direction Properties (or any portion thereof). You agree not to create an Account using a false identity or information, or on behalf of someone other than yourself.

You acknowledge and agree that you have no expectation of privacy concerning the transmission of Your Content.

Without limiting the foregoing, Hire Direction shall have the right to remove any Content that violates the Terms or is otherwise objectionable.

8.1 Third-Party Websites, Applications & Ads. Hire Direction Properties may contain links to third-party websites (“Third-Party Websites”) and applications (“Third-Party Applications”) and advertisements for third parties (“Third-Party Ads”) . When you click on a link to a Third-Party Website, Third-Party Application or Third-Party Ad, we will not warn you that you have left Hire Direction Properties and are subject to the terms and conditions (including privacy policies) of another website or destination. Such Third-Party Websites, Third-Party Applications and Third-Party Ads are not under the control of Hire Direction. Hire Direction is not responsible for any Third-Party Websites, Third-Party Applications or Third-Party Ads. Hire Direction provides these Third-Party Websites, Third-Party Applications and Third Party Ads only as a convenience and does not review, approve, monitor, endorse, warrant, or make any representations with respect to Third-Party Websites, Third-Party Applications or Third-Party Ads, or their products or services.

You acknowledge and agree that the availability of the Application and the Services is dependent on the third party from whom you received the Application license, e.g., the Apple App Store or Google Play (“App Store”) . You acknowledge that the Terms are between you and Hire Direction and not with the App Store.

You acknowledge that the App Store (and its subsidiaries) are third-party beneficiaries of the Terms and will have the right to enforce them.
9. Fees and Purchase Terms.
9.1 General Purpose of Terms: Sale of Service, not Software. The purpose of the Terms is for you to secure access to the Services. All fees set forth within and paid by you under the Terms shall be considered solely in furtherance of this purpose. In no way are these fees paid considered payment for the sale, license, or use of Hire Direction’ software, and, furthermore, any use of Hire Direction’ software by you in furtherance of the Terms will be considered merely in support of the purpose of the Terms.
9.2 Payment. You agree to pay all fees or charges to your Account in accordance with the fees, charges and billing terms in effect at the time a fee or charge is due and payable. You may provide Hire Direction with a valid credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or any other issuer accepted by us) PayPal or AliPay account (“Payment Provider”) when purchasing. Your Payment Provider agreement governs your use of the designated credit card or PayPal account, and you must refer to that agreement and not the Terms to determine your rights and liabilities. By providing Hire Direction with your credit card number or PayPal or AliPay account and associated payment information, you agree that Hire Direction is authorized to immediately invoice your Account for all fees and charges due and payable to Hire Direction hereunder and that no additional notice or consent is required. You agree to immediately notify Hire Direction of any change in your billing address or the credit card or PayPal or AliPay account used for payment hereunder. Hire Direction reserves the right at any time to change its prices and billing methods, either immediately upon posting on Hire Direction Properties or by e-mail delivery to you.
9.3 Service Subscription Fees. You will be responsible for payment of the applicable fee for any Services (each, a “Service Subscription Fee”) at the time you create your Account and select your monthly or annual package (each, a “Service Commencement Date”) . Except as set forth in the Terms, all fees for the Services are non-refundable. No contract will exist between you and Hire Direction for the Services until Hire Direction accepts your order by a confirmatory e-mail or other means of communication. By subscribing to a Service for which Hire Direction charges monthly fees during your subscription term, you authorize Hire Direction to charge your Payment Provider now, and again at the beginning of each month during such subscription term.
9.4 Taxes. Hire Direction’ fees are net of any applicable Sales Tax. If any Services, or payments for any Services, under the Terms are subject to Sales Tax in any jurisdiction and you have not remitted the applicable Sales Tax to Hire Direction, you will be responsible for the payment of such Sales Tax and any related penalties or interest to the relevant tax authority, and you will indemnify Hire Direction for any liability or expense we may incur in connection with such Sales Taxes. Upon our request, you will provide us with official receipts issued by the appropriate taxing authority, or other such evidence that you have paid all applicable taxes. For purposes of this section, “Sales Tax” shall mean any sales or use tax, and any other tax measured by sales proceeds, that Hire Direction is permitted to pass to its customers, that is the functional equivalent of a sales tax where the applicable taxing jurisdiction does not otherwise impose a sales or use tax.
9.5 Withholding Taxes. You agree to make all payments of fees to Hire Direction free and clear of, and without reduction for, any withholding taxes. Any such taxes imposed on payments of fees to Hire Direction will be your sole responsibility, and you will provide Hire Direction with official receipts issued by the appropriate taxing authority, or such other evidence as we may reasonably request, to establish that such taxes have been paid.
9.6 Disputes. You must notify us in writing within seven (7) days after receiving your credit card statement, if you dispute any of our charges on that statement or such dispute will be deemed waived. Billing disputes should be notified to the following address: 1491 Polaris Pkwy Suite 132, Columbus, OH 43240 USA.
9.7 Cancellation Period. If you are a resident of the United Kingdom then this Section 9.7 applies to you. You have a legal right to cancel your subscription until 14 days after the day on which the subscription was entered into. This means that during that period if you change your mind or decide for any other reason that you do not want to continue receiving the Services, you can notify us of your decision to cancel your subscription and receive a refund. Advice about your legal right to cancel your subscription terms as described in the previous sentence is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office. To cancel a subscription, you just need to let us know that you have decided to cancel. The easiest way to do this is to email us, or complete the cancellation form below. If you use the form or e-mail us we will e-mail you to confirm we have received your cancellation. If you cancel your subscription we will refund you the price paid for the subscription.
You agree to indemnify and hold Hire Direction, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, employees, agents, partners and licensors (collectively, the “Hire Direction Parties”) harmless from any losses, costs, liabilities and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) relating to or arising out of: (a) Your Content; (b) your use of, or inability to use, Hire Direction Properties; (c) your violation of the Terms; (d) your violation of any rights of another party, including any Users; or (e) your violation of any applicable laws, rules or regulations. Hire Direction reserves the right, at its own cost, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, in which event you will fully cooperate with Hire Direction in asserting any available defenses. This provision does not require you to indemnify any of the Hire Direction Parties for any unconscionable commercial practice by such party or for such party’s fraud, deception, false promise, misrepresentation or concealment, suppression or omission of any material fact in connection with the Website or any Services provided hereunder. You agree that the provisions in this section will survive any termination of your Account, the Terms or your access to Hire Direction Properties.

17. Dispute Resolution.
Please read the following arbitration agreement in this Section (“Arbitration Agreement”) carefully. It requires you to arbitrate disputes with Hire Direction and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us.
17.1 Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. You agree that any dispute or claim relating in any way to your access or use of the Website, to any products sold or distributed through the Website, or to any aspect of your relationship with Hire Direction, will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that (1) you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify, so long as the matter remains in such court and advances only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis; and (2) you or Hire Direction may seek equitable relief in court for infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights, and patents). This Arbitration Agreement shall apply, without limitation, to all claims that arose or were asserted before the Effective Date of these Terms or any prior version of these Terms.
IF YOU AGREE TO ARBITRATION WITH HIRE DIRECTION, YOU ARE AGREEING IN ADVANCE THAT YOU WILL NOT PARTICIPATE IN OR SEEK TO RECOVER MONETARY OR OTHER RELIEF IN ANY LAWSUIT FILED AGAINST HIRE DIRECTION ALLEGING CLASS, COLLECTIVE, AND/OR REPRESENTATIVE CLAIMS ON YOUR BEHALF. INSTEAD, BY AGREEING TO ARBITRATION, YOU MAY BRING YOUR CLAIMS AGAINST THE HIRE DIRECTION IN AN INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION PROCEEDING. IF SUCCESSFUL ON SUCH CLAIMS, YOU COULD BE AWARDED MONEY OR OTHER RELIEF BY AN ARBITRATOR. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE BEEN ADVISED THAT YOU MAY CONSULT WITH AN ATTORNEY IN DECIDING WHETHER TO ACCEPT THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT.
17.2 Arbitration Rules and Forum. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent, Joshua Freedman, Hire Direction’ CEO, 1491 Polaris Pkwy Suite 132, Columbus, OH 43240, USA. The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS, an established alternative dispute resolution provider. Disputes involving claims and counterclaims under $250,000, not inclusive of attorneys’ fees and interest, shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and procedures available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/ all other claims shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures, available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-comprehensive-arbitration/. JAMS’s rules are also available at www.jamsadr.com or by calling JAMS at 800-352-5267. If JAMS is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum. If the arbitrator finds that you cannot afford to pay JAMS’s filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees and cannot obtain a waiver from JAMS, Hire Direction will pay them for you. In addition, Hire Direction will reimburse all such JAMS’s filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, Hire Direction will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous.
You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the country where you live or at another mutually agreed location. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
17.3 Authority of Arbitrator. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute related to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The arbitration will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and Hire Direction. The arbitration proceeding will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the arbitral forum’s rules, and the Agreement (including the Arbitration Agreement). The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and us.
17.4 Waiver of Jury Trial. YOU AND HIRE DIRECTION HEREBY WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY. You and Hire Direction are instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement, except as specified in Section 17.1 above. An arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court and must follow this Agreement as a court would. However, there is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is subject to very limited review.
17.5 Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions. ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS, ONLY INDIVIDUAL RELIEF IS AVAILABLE, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER.

You have the right to opt out of the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to the following address: 1491 Polaris Pkwy Suite 132, Columbus, OH 43240, USA Attn: Managing Partners within 30 days after first becoming subject to this Arbitration Agreement. Your notice must include your name and address, your Hire Direction username (if any), the email address you used to set up your Hire Direction account (if you have one), and an unequivocal statement that you want to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement.

Opting out of this Arbitration Agreement has no effect on any other arbitration agreements that you may currently have, or may enter in the future, with us.
17.7 Severability. If any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
17.8 Survival of Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with Hire Direction.
