These Terms of Use are a contract between JobDig, Inc. dba LinkUp (“We” or “LinkUp”) and yourself (“You” or “User”), and explain the terms and conditions under which You may use and access LinkUp’s websites www.linkup.com and www.jobdig.com (“Websites”) and any other LinkUp owned sites and applications (collectively, “Services”). The word “You” or “User” as used in this Agreement applies to all persons and entities that visit any of our Websites or use or access any of the Services.

Acceptance of Terms of Use

By accessing or using the Services, You agree that You have read, understood, and agree to be bound by the Terms of Use, which incorporates the LinkUp Privacy Policy and Cookies Policy (collectively, “Agreement”) whether or not You are a registered user, visitor, affiliate, client, partner, or customer of the Services.

Amendments to Terms of Use

LinkUp reserves the right to amend this Agreement at any time. If We do, We will publish the changes on our Websites. Your continued use of the Services after such change constitutes your acceptance of the revised Terms of Use. You acknowledge that your submission of any content or information to LinkUp is completely voluntary.

Availability of Websites

We use our best efforts to maintain, update, and improve the Websites. As a result, We allow You to access our Services as are available on any given day and We have no other obligations, except as expressly stated in this Agreement. We may modify, replace, refuse access to, suspend, or discontinue our Website, partially or entirely, at any time, in our sole discretion and without notice to You. We further reserve the right in our sole discretion, to withhold, remove, or discard any content available as part of your account, with or without notice, for any reason.

Use of the Services

There are several ways Users can use or access the Services. A job seeker may use the Services to conduct a job search. A job seeker may also choose to register with the Services in order to save his or her job search history or sign up for job alerts. An employer may use the Services to sponsor a job listing. Regardless of whether You are a job seeker or an employer, when You view, send, store or receive materials (including job listings) through or using the Services, LinkUp may, for example, use such materials for data analysis, quality control, or to refine the Services (including to provide better search results and other listings for job seekers and employers), whether via automated means or otherwise.

Third Party Content On LinkUp Sites

LinkUp may make available certain content from third parties (“Content”), including job listings that link to third-party websites, through LinkUp search results or otherwise through the Services. These links are provided for your convenience and do not signify that We endorse such third party websites. Job listings are created and provided by third parties over whom LinkUp exercises no control.

When You leave the Services, our terms and policies do not govern your use of third-party websites. LinkUp does not have any obligation to screen any Content, or to include any job listing in its search results or other listings, and may exclude or remove any Content from the Services for any or no reason.

If You have consented to receive email job alerts, We will send You alerts until You unsubscribe from such alerts. You may opt-out from promotional, marketing, and other emails by unsubscribing at any time.
