We do this through the services offered on the Website and by the products and services otherwise offered by us (together with the Website, Content (defined below), and all of the products and services offered by us, our “Services”). By accessing or using our Services, you the end user of our Services (“User”, “you”, or “your”), expressly agree to be bound to and to abide by these Terms of Service (“Terms”), our Privacy Policy, and any other policy we may develop from time to time (collectively, “Policies”), which create legal and enforceable agreements whether or not you register for a user account with us, or whether or not you obtain, transmit, post, send, receive, link, email, upload, download, submit or otherwise communicate (“Post”): a Job (defined below), text, ratings, images, video, audio, graphics, links, electronic messages, or any other input and data (collectively, “Content”) using our Services to us or other Users. If you do not agree to be bound to or to abide by these Terms of Service and our other Policies, do not browse our Website or use our Services.

 

BY ACCESSING OUR SERVICES, YOU (ON BEHALF OF YOURSELF OR THE ENTITY THAT YOU REPRESENT) REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU HAVE THE RIGHT, AUTHORITY, AND CAPACITY TO ENTER INTO THESE TERMS (ON BEHALF OF YOURSELF OR THE ENTITY THAT YOU REPRESENT) AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTOOD AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY ALL OF THE PROVISIONS, CONDITIONS AND NOTICES CONTAINED IN THESE TERMS JUST AS IF YOU HAD SIGNED THESE TERMS.

 

THESE TERMS CONTAIN A DISPUTE RESOLUTION AND ARBITRATION PROVISION, INCLUDING CLASS ACTION WAIVER THAT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS UNDER THESE TERMS AND WITH RESPECT TO DISPUTES YOU MAY HAVE WITH US.

 

B. Terms of Service:

 

1. Service Conditions. You cannot use the Services unless you are at least 18 years of age. Further, only Users that are veterans of the US Armed Forces, military spouses, military retirees, and dependants of veterans of the US Armed Forces (a “Military Affiliate”) are eligible to use our Services as a Jobseeker. By using or accessing the Services, you represent and warrant to us that: (a) you are at least 18 years of age; (b) you have the right, authority and capacity to agree to, and abide by these Terms; (c) if you are using the Services as a Jobseeker, then you are a Military Affiliate; and (d) you shall not use the Services or any rights granted hereunder for any unlawful purpose or any purpose which violates these Terms.          

 

2. Duration of License to Access Services. These Terms provide you with a personal, revocable, non-exclusive, non-assignable, non-transferable, limited and temporary license to access and use the Services. We shall be entitled to terminate, restrict, or suspend this license granted to you with immediate effect and without notice, including but not limited to by deleting your Profile or otherwise restricting your ability to access or use the Services, for any reason or no reason, as determined by us.

 

3. Profiles. To Use certain aspects of our Services, you must create a Profile. If you choose to create a Profile with us, then you agree to provide true, accurate, current and complete information as prompted by our registration form, and to maintain and promptly update the information you provide to us in order to keep such information true, accurate, current and complete. It is your obligation to maintain and control passwords to your Profile. YOU AGREE THAT YOU ARE SOLELY AND FULLY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY ACTIVITIES OR ACTIONS TAKEN UNDER YOUR ACCOUNT, WHETHER OR NOT YOU HAVE AUTHORIZED SUCH ACTIVITIES OR ACTIONS. You agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorized uses of your username and password and/or any other breaches of security. There is no assumption by us of your responsibility to notify your local law enforcement agency of any identity theft. You agree we will not be liable for any loss or damages caused by your failure to comply with your security obligations.

 

4. Employers, Jobs and Posting Jobs.

 

(a) Job Posting Options. Employers who create a Profile with us may Post offers to engage a Jobseeker to perform errands, tasks, chores, a virtual job/task or any other duties for such Employers (a “Job”) on our Website. Also, Employers may choose to have that Employer’s Job displayed on our Website as a featured Post, which will appear at the top of relevant Job search results on our Services, in exchange for an additional fee. If an Employer elects to pay per Job Posted, Employers will be charged a fee upon such time as the Job that Employer creates is Posted on our Website. Our Services also allow Employers to purchase a subscription to our Services in exchange for a fee which will allow the Employer to Post any number of Jobs during the duration of the subscription, provided that the Employer does not abuse our Services or otherwise violate these Terms, as determined solely by us (“Employer Subscription”). Employer Subscriptions are available in the durations displayed on our Website or otherwise communicated to you by us. Employer Subscriptions must be manually renewed and are not automatically recurring. Employers agree that we may provide you with a reminder communication prior to the expiration of your Employer Subscription. Employers may cancel their Employer Subscription at anytime pursuant to Section 13 below.

 

(b) Job Posting Duration and Removal. Once we display a Job that is Posted by you on our Website, that Job will continue to be displayed publically on our Website until the earlier of: (i) 30 calendar days, or (ii) the date that an Employer engages a Jobseeker in connection with the performance of a Job, as determined by us. Once a Jobseeker has been engaged by an Employer in connection with a Job, the Employer that Posted that Job agrees to remove the Job Posting from our Services immediately. We may monitor the Jobs that Employer’s propose for Posing on the Website and reserve the right to refuse to Post or delete any Job or other Content for any reason or no reason, as determined by us in our sole discretion, although we have no obligation to do so. Employers may remove Job Postings from our Website by accessing that Employer’s Profile. In connection with Jobs, Employers must communicate with Jobseekers by contacting the Jobseeker directly. As noted in Section 6 and Section 7 below, all transactions between Employers and Jobseekers are between those Users alone, and therefore Employers agree that each Employer is independently responsible for paying all taxes associated with the engagement of a Jobseeker and Jobs they Post.

 

(c) Employers agree that any Jobs Posted by such Employer may be searched, displayed, accessed, downloaded, copied, and otherwise referred to by other Users and Homeport Advantage, in our absolute discretion. Each User (i) represents and warrants that all Job information provided by that User will be accurate; (ii) agrees that such User will not Post a Job on our Services for activities that are unlawful; and (iii) agrees to administer the Jobs provided by such User and maintain the accuracy of Job Postings at all times. You acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for any and all Jobs you Post. Accordingly, you represent and warrant that any Job you Post is in compliance with all applicable laws, tax requirements, and regulations that may apply to any such transaction, and does not conflict with the rights of third parties. We assume no responsibility for a User’s compliance or lack of compliance with any applicable laws, rules or regulations.

 

(d) Any User that identifies as a broker or agent in connection with a Job or otherwise using our Services hereby represents and warrants that such User is validly licensed as a broker and is in compliance with applicable broker requirements in all jurisdictions in which User is required to be licensed.

 

5. Jobseekers. When a User registers for a Jobseeker Profile, we will send a confirmation email containing instructions regarding verification of the User’s status as a Military Affiliate. Once we have confirmed to our satisfaction that a User is a Military Affiliate, that User will be able to purchase a subscription to our Services in exchange for a fee which will activate that User’s Profile as a Jobseeker and enable that User to respond to Jobs that are displayed on our Website (a “Jobseeker Subscription”, and together with a Employer Subscription, collectively a “Subscription”). Jobseeker Subscriptions are available in the durations displayed on our Website or otherwise communicated to you by us. Jobseeker Subscriptions must be manually renewed and are not automatically recurring. Jobseekers agree that we may provide you with a reminder communication prior to the expiration of your Jobseeker Subscription. Jobseekers may cancel their Jobseeker Subscription at anytime pursuant to Section 13 below. In connection with Jobs, Jobseekers must respond to Employers by contacting the Employer directly. As noted in Section 6 and Section 7 below, all transactions between Employers and Jobseekers are between those Users alone, and therefore Jobseekers agree that each Jobseeker is independently responsible for paying all taxes associated with the Jobs they perform for Employers and Job Postings they respond to.

 

6. Job Transactions. Users agree that the terms of: any transaction relating to a Job; the duties to be performed by the Jobseeker; and any compensation paid by an Employer to a Jobseeker are established by the Employer and Jobseeker alone and we are not a party to any transactions between Users. However, in connection with a Job Posting, Employers must indicate, in the publicly-viewable portion of the Job Posting, whether the Employer’s Job Order requires the Jobseeker to spend money of his or her own, subject to reimbursement by the Employer. If the Job requires the Jobseeker to spend money, the Employer must estimate the amount of money that will be spent in connection with the Job and indicate how this expense will be reimbursed. Employers agree that Jobseekers must be reimbursed by the Employer for any expenses that the Employer asked the Jobseeker to incur during the completion of a Job. However, Employers and Jobseekers agree that expenses incurred by the Jobseeker but not requested by the Employer are not reimbursable by the Client. Jobseekers who accept a Job requiring them to spend their own money acknowledge that the Company makes no guarantee that these expenditures will be repaid and that it is the Jobseeker’s own responsibility to seek the recoupment of these expenditures from the Employer. 

 

7. User Interaction.

 

(a) OUR SERVICES CREATE ONLY A VENUE TO CONNECT USERS. USERS ARE NOT OUR EMPLOYEES, INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS, OR AGENTS.
