Your Use of the Site
Without limitation of the other prohibitions in these Terms, you are prohibited from:
Use of the Recruiting Platform
Impact Opportunity's Liability for Recruiting Platform
The Recruiting Platform is a venue for organizations or search firms (“Advertisers”) to post job opportunities and for individual Users to submit resumes. Impact Opportunity is not involved in the actual transaction between Advertisers and individual Users unless it has an express agreement with an Advertiser to facilitate the process of filling an open position. As a result, Impact Opportunity has no control over the quality, safety, or legality of the listings, jobs or application documents submitted, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of Advertisers to offer job opportunities to individual Users or the ability of individual Users to fill job openings. You assume all risks associated with interacting with other Users or Advertisers with whom you come in contact through the Recruiting Platform and/or the Site.
Impact Opportunity cannot and does not confirm that each User is who they claim to be, and does not control the behavior of participants on the Recruiting Platform and/or the Site. Impact Opportunity is not responsible for any solicitation that any User or Advertiser may receive as a result of posting a listing or applying for a job. In the event that you have a dispute with any Advertiser or any person on whose behalf the Advertiser was acting, you release Impact Opportunity (and our 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 you are a California resident, you waive 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."
You are responsible for the form, content and accuracy of any resume, posting or material contained therein placed by you on the Recruiting Platform. Advertisers are solely responsible for their postings on the Recruiting Platform. You shall comply with all applicable equal employment opportunity laws, including the anti-discrimination provision of the Immigration and Naturalization Act. Impact Opportunity is not to be considered to be an employer with respect to your use of the Recruiting Platform and Impact Opportunity shall not be responsible for any employment decisions, for whatever reason, made by any Advertiser posting jobs on the Recruiting Platform. Impact Opportunity is not responsible for the information provided by other Users, which is made available through the Recruiting Platform. By its very nature, other people's information may be offensive, harmful or inaccurate, and in some cases will be mislabeled or deceptively labeled. Impact Opportunity expects that all Users will use caution and common sense when using the Recruiting Platform.
Links to Other Sites
The Site may contain links to or framed content from other sites, which are provided solely as a convenience to you. Impact Opportunity is not responsible for the availability of external sites, framed content or resources linked to the Site, and does not endorse and is not responsible or liable for any content, advertising, products or other materials on or available from such sites or resources.
Security of Data Transmission and Storage
Electronic communications through the Site or using the Impact Opportunity Services may not be secure. You acknowledge that there is a risk that data, personal information, User Submissions, Community Services, including e-mail, communications and personal data, may be accessed by unauthorized third parties when communicated between you and Impact Opportunity or between you and other parties.

You hereby agree to indemnify, defend, and hold Impact Opportunity harmless from and against any and all losses, damages, liabilities, costs and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees, incurred by Impact Opportunity in connection with any claim or allegation made against Impact Opportunity arising from your use of the Site, Content, or Services.

Digital Millennium Copyright Act Compliance Policy
It is our policy to promptly respond to claims of copyright infringement in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (17 U.S.C. § 512, as amended) (the “DMCA”). If you believe that an infringing copyrighted work is accessible on the Site, you may notify us by sending the following information to the address listed below: An electronic or physical signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright or other right being infringed; A description of the copyrighted work or other intellectual property that you claim has been infringed; A description of the material that you claim is infringing and where it is located on the Site; Your address, telephone number and email address; A statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the use of the materials on the Site of which you are complaining is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or the law; and A statement by you that the above information in your notice is accurate and that, under penalty of perjury, you are the copyright owner or intellectual property owner or are authorized to act on the copyright or intellectual property owner’s behalf.
Please put "Notice of Infringement" in the subject line of all such notifications, and send the notification to:
PO Box 1268
Marblehead, MA 01945
We will process and investigate all notices of alleged infringement as required by the DMCA, and will remove or disable access to any material claimed to be infringing or claimed to be the subject of infringing activity. When we remove or disable access to any material claimed to be infringing, we may attempt to contact the supplier of such material in order to give that supplier an opportunity to respond to the notification. If the supplier of the material gives a counter-notification claiming that the use is authorized, we may reinstate the material in question, and we will furnish that counter-notification to the complaining party, and will give the complaining party an opportunity to seek judicial relief under the DMCA before we replace or restore access to any materials. Please note that you will be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys' fees) if you materially misrepresent that a product or activity is not infringing the copyrights of others. Accordingly, if you are not sure whether certain material infringes the copyrights of others, we suggest that you contact an attorney before providing a counter-notification.
