You understand that all information, data, text, software, music, sound, photographs, graphics, video, advertisements, messages or other materials submitted, posted or displayed by You on or through a FET Site ("User Content") is the sole responsibility of the person from which such User Content originated. FET claims no ownership or control over any User Content. You or a third party licensor, as appropriate, retain all patent, trademark and copyright to any User Content you submit, post or display on or through FET and you are responsible for protecting those rights, as appropriate. By submitting, posting or displaying User Content on or through FET, you grant FET a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable, sub-licensable license to use, reproduce, adapt, distribute and publish such User Content through FET. In addition, by submitting, posting or displaying User Content which is intended to be available to the general public, you grant FET a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license to reproduce, adapt, distribute and publish such User Content for the purpose of promoting FET and its services. FET will discontinue this licensed use within a commercially reasonable period after such User Content is removed from FET.

You also represent and warrant that You have the right to grant, or that the holder of any rights, including moral rights in such content has completely and effectively waived all such rights and validly and irrevocably granted to You the right to grant, the license stated above.

FET reserves the right to expel Users and prevent their further access to the FET Sites and/or use of FET Services for violating the Terms or applicable laws, rules or regulations. FET may take any action with respect to User Content that it deems necessary or appropriate in its sole discretion if it believes that such User Content could create liability for FET, damage FET’s brand or public image, or cause FET to lose Users or (in whole or in part) the services of its ISPs or other suppliers.

FET does not represent or guarantee the truthfulness, accuracy, or reliability of User Content, derivative works from User Content, or any other communications posted by Users nor does FET endorse any opinions expressed by Users.

FET respects the intellectual property of others, and we ask our Users and content partners to do the same.

As a condition to Your use of the FET Sites, You agree not to use any FET Site to infringe the intellectual property rights of others in any way. FET reserves the right to terminate the accounts of any Users, and block access to the FET Sites of any Users who are repeat infringers of the copyrights, or other intellectual property rights, of others. FET reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to take these actions to limit access to the Site and/or terminate the accounts of any time, in our sole discretion Users who infringe any intellectual property rights of others, whether or not there is any repeat infringement, with or without notice, and without any liability to the User who is terminated or to the User whose access is blocked. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that You believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against You, please contact FET as set forth in Section 6 above.

7. FET's Liability.

The FET Sites act as, among other things, venues for (i) authorized employers to search for and evaluate job candidates and (ii) candidates to post resumes and Profiles and search for and evaluate job opportunities. FET does not screen or censor the data, including Profiles offered. FET is not responsible for User Content, the quality, safety or legality of resumes posted, the truth or accuracy of the listings. While FET reserves the right in its sole discretion to remove User Content, job postings, resumes or other material from the FET Sites from time to time, FET does not assume any obligation to do so and to the extent permitted by law, disclaims any liability for failing to take any such action.

Note that there are risks, including but not limited to the risk of physical harm, of dealing with strangers, underage persons or people acting under false pretenses. You assume all risks associated with dealing with other users with whom You come in contact through the FET Sites. By its very nature other people’s information may be offensive, harmful or inaccurate, and in some cases will be mislabeled or deceptively labeled. We expect that You will use caution and common sense when using the FET Sites.

Because User authentication on the Internet is difficult, FET cannot and does not confirm that each User is who they claim to be. Because we do not and cannot be involved in User-to-User dealings or control the behavior of participants on any FET Site, in the event that You have a dispute with one or more Users, You release FET (and our agents and employees) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential and 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 to the fullest extent permitted by law.

FET makes no representations about the accuracy, reliability, completeness, or timeliness of any FET Site or the FET Content. The use of all FET Sites and the FET Content is at Your own risk. Changes are periodically made to FET Sites and may be made at any time. FET cannot guarantee and does not promise any specific results from use of any FET Site. No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained by a User from FET or through or from any FET Site shall create any warranty not expressly stated herein.

If You are a California resident, You waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: "A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him or her must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor."

FET encourages You to keep a back-up copy of any of Your User Content. To the extent permitted by law, in no event shall FET be liable for the deletion, loss, or unauthorized modification of any User Content.

FET does not provide or make any representation as to the quality or nature of any of the third party products or services purchased through any FET Site, or any other representation, warranty or guaranty. Any such undertaking, representation, warranty or guaranty would be furnished solely by the provider of such third party products or services, under the terms agreed to by the provider.
