The ZipRecruiter name, the jobboard.io name, and all related names, logos, product and service names, designs, images and slogans are trademarks of ZipRecruiter or its affiliates or licensors. You must not use such marks without the prior written permission of ZipRecruiter. Other names, logos, product and service names, designs, images and slogans which appear on this Website are the trademarks of their respective owners.

You shall not directly or indirectly reproduce, compile for an internal database, distribute, modify, create derivative works of, publicly display, publicly perform, republish, download, store, or transmit any of the material on our Website, in any form or medium whatsoever except: (a) your computer and browser may temporarily store or cache copies of materials being accessed and viewed; (b) a reasonable number of copies for personal use only may be printed keeping any proprietary notices thereon, which may only be used for non-commercial and lawful personal use and not for further reproduction, publication, or distribution of any kind on any medium whatsoever; (c) one single user copy may be downloaded with any proprietary notices intact, for your own personal, non-commercial use, conditional on your agreement to be bound by our end user license agreement for such downloads; and (d) in the event social media features are provided with respect to certain content are on our site, you may take such actions as our site permits for such features.

4. CONDITIONS OF USE AND USER SUBMISSIONS AND SITE CONTENT STANDARDS
The following content standards apply to all content, material, and information a user submits, posts, publishes, displays, or transmits (collectively, “submit“) to the Website, to other users or other persons (collectively, “User Submissions”) and any and all Interactive Functions. User Submissions must comply with all applicable federal, state, local, and international laws and regulations.
5. USER SUBMISSIONS; GRANT OF LICENSE
The Website may contain Interactive Functions allowing User Submissions on or through the Website. No User Submission to the Website will be subject to any confidentiality by ZipRecruiter. By providing any User Submission to the Website, you grant us and our affiliates and service providers, and each of their and our respective licensees, successors, and assigns the right to a world-wide, royalty free, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive license to use, reproduce, modify, perform, display, distribute, and otherwise disclose to third parties any such material for any purpose and according to your account settings and/or incorporate such material into any form, medium or technology throughout the world without compensation to you. You waive any moral rights or other rights of authorship as a condition of submitting any User Submission.
6. WEBSITE MONITORING AND ENFORCEMENT, SUSPENSION AND TERMINATION
We have no obligation, nor any responsibility to any party to monitor the Website, and do not and cannot undertake to review material that you or other users submit to the Website. We cannot ensure prompt removal of objectionable material after it has been posted and we have no liability for any action or inaction regarding transmissions, communications, or content provided by any user or third party.
Please note Section 230 of the U.S. Communications Decency Act (“CDA”) (and the equivalent or similar laws in your jurisdiction), which are intended to exclude or limit the liability of online service providers such as ZipRecruiter, which provide or make available access to third-party user generated content (see § 230 (c)(1) which states: No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider).
The decision by ZipRecruiter to remove or not post or distribute any User Submission, does not by itself amount to participation in the creation of such User Content and accordingly, does not constitute a waiver of the immunity afforded by the CDA. Additionally, § 230 (c)(2) of the CDA specifically provides: “No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be held liable on account of (A) any action voluntarily taken in good faith to restrict access to or availability of material that the provider or user considers to be obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy, excessively violent, harassing, or otherwise objectionable whether or not such material is constitutionally protected…”

UNDER FEDERAL LAW, IF YOU KNOWINGLY MISREPRESENT THAT ONLINE MATERIAL IS INFRINGING, YOU MAY BE SUBJECT TO CRIMINAL PROSECUTION FOR PERJURY AND CIVIL PENALTIES, INCLUDING MONETARY DAMAGES, COURT COSTS, AND ATTORNEYS’ FEES.
In accordance with the DMCA and other applicable law, ZipRecruiter has adopted a policy of terminating, in appropriate circumstances, the accounts of Users who are deemed to be repeat infringers. ZipRecruiter may also at its sole discretion limit access to the Website or the Services and/or terminate the accounts of any Users who infringe any intellectual property rights of others, whether or not there is any repeat infringement.
Copyright Counter-Notices. If content you posted on the site was removed due to a claim(s) of copyright infringement and you would like to dispute that removal, the process for counter-notifications is governed by Section 512(g) of the DMCA:
- To file a counter-notification with us, you must provide a written communication that sets forth the items specified below.
- Please note that under Section 512(f) of the DMCA, any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification may be subject to liability. Please also be advised that we enforce a policy that provides for the termination in appropriate circumstances of users (and removal of content from users) who are infringers. Accordingly, if you are not sure whether certain material infringes the copyrights of others, we suggest that you first contact an attorney.
Elements of Counter-Notification. To expedite our ability to process your counter-notification, please use the following format (including section numbers):
- Identify the specific URLs of material that ZipRecruiter has removed or to which ZipRecruiter has disabled access.
- Provide your full name, address, telephone number, email address and, if you are a registered User, the User name of your account.
- Provide a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the courts of the state of California, and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification to ZipRecruiter in accordance with the process outlined above or an agent of such person.

Attn: DMCA Agent
604 Arizona Ave.
Santa Monica, CA 90401

After we receive your counter-notification, we will forward it to the party who submitted the original claim of copyright infringement. Please note that when we forward the counter-notification, it may include any of your identifying information set forth in the counter-notification. By submitting a counter-notification, you therefore consent to having such identifying information revealed in this way.
After we send out the counter-notification, the claimant must then notify us within ten (10) days that he or she has filed an action seeking a court order to restrain you from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on the site. If we receive such notification, we will be unable to restore the items. If we do not receive such notification, we may, but are not obligated to, reinstate the disputed item(s).
Foreign Counter-Notification. If you reside outside of the United States, please understand that filing a counter-notice may lead to legal proceedings between you and the complaining party to determine ownership. Therefore, please be aware that there may be adverse legal consequences in your country and/or the United States of America if you make a false or bad faith allegation by using this process. Please also be advised that we enforce a policy that provides for the termination in appropriate circumstances of users who are infringers. So, if you are not sure whether content you posted on the site is being infringed, or are otherwise unsure of whether to file a counter-notification using these procedures, we recommend you first contact a lawyer knowledgeable in the laws of the United States and the state of California. If you do wish to file a counter-notice, you should follow the process set forth above under the heading “Elements of Counter-Notification.”
