You can always set your privacy settings on the Settings page of your Account. To see if your Digital Resume has been viewed, go to your Digital Resume Analytics page.

    Your Digital Resume Analytics page will provide data which may include (when available) number of visits, visits dates, location of the visitor, source, and number of contact requests received in the last 30 days. Note that all of this information may not always be available. Due to privacy, we may not be able to give you the name of the person looking at your Digital Resume. We do not guarantee the accuracy of the information on your Digital Resume Insights page, nor of the location of the person looking at your Digital Resume, as some people may be using blockers or VPNs to avoid tracking technologies such as the one in your Digital Resume. Each time a third party visits your Digital Resume, the visit will be automatically featured on the Digital Resume Analytics page and will provide you with the total number of visits grouped based on the following characteristics: source, country, city and timestamp. By default, when the Digital Resume gets published you will be given a web address with an unique identifier which will allow us to track and gather the above data. However, and although we do our best efforts to provide you accurate information, we do not guarantee the accuracy of any of the above tracking data or statistics displayed on your Digital Resume Analytics page.

    Your Digital Resume will include the information you provided and agreed to publish, as well as a contact form that enables anyone that has access to your Digital Resume to request to contact you. WE WILL NOT DISCLOSE YOUR CONTACT DATA TO ANY THIRD PARTIES. However, we have no obligation to pre-screen information provided by you, this means that if you decide to include your contact data in any section on your Digital Resume, it will be published and publicly available to everyone. Each time a third party or a Registered User visits your Digital Resume and issues a contact request, we will send you an email notification with the contact data and message left by the third party or Registered User (“Sender”). If you choose to continue the communications with the Sender, you do so entirely at your own risk. Your communications with the Sender are not under the control of the Provider, and you acknowledge that the Provider is not responsible for any aspects of the content/information you receive from the Sender. If you elect to use our Digital Resume, you understand that (a) your Digital Resume will be available for anyone, including third parties, and (b) your communication with such third-party will be at your own risk. The Provider does not make any representations or warranties as to the security of any information you might be requested to give the Sender, and you irrevocably waive any claim against us with respect to such communication and from the use of the Digital Resume. The Provider makes no guarantee that you will receive career opportunities, or the job alert leads you desire, nor that the communications received from the Sender will meet your requirements.

If you would like to Unpublish your Digital Resume, so it’s only visible to you, you may do so by clicking “Unpublish” on your Digital Resume edit page.

Your Online Resume may also be unpublished by deleting your Account. However, once your information is disclosed, it may have been already accessed, stored, and/or copied by others, and therefore, we are unable to delete the information from their systems. By sharing your Digital Resume with third parties and allowing it to be publicly available through our database, you do so at your own risk. Once your Digital Resume is published we have no control over your publicly available data.

You can change your privacy setting at any time by logging into your account and clicking on My Settings. If you would prefer to have your Digital Resume private we will provide a unique link for you to share directly with third parties. Provider has no control over how third parties will manage that information and you agree to share it at your own risk. Our searchable database will provide aleatory results depending on the job title and location where potential employers are looking to hire. Results are based on a computer system that provides results which best match the words imputed on the search form.

    If you are using the contact form available through the Digital Resume to contact any of the users, you are acting as a Sender. As Sender, you acknowledge Provider has no obligation to pre-screen information provided by you through the contact form. However, Provider reserves the right in its sole discretion to pre-screen, refuse, or remove any information. By using the contact form on the Online Resume you are agreeing to these Terms, and you hereby provide your irrevocable consent to such monitoring. You acknowledge and agree that you have no expectation of privacy concerning the transmission of the information (including your name, surname, contact data) provided through the contact form. If Provider pre-screens, refuses or removes any information provided through the contact form, you acknowledge that Provider will do so for Provider’s benefit, not yours. Furthermore, you understand that the Provider does not guarantee the user will respond to your contact request.

    As Sender, you are requested to provide true and accurate data in the contact form. You must not provide the data of an individual other than yourself. We will send a copy of the information provided in the contact form to your email address.

    You recognize that storing, distributing, or transmitting unlawful material could expose you to criminal and/or civil liability. You agree that you are responsible for all material or information you send. Furthermore, you are obliged to refrain from transmitting any commercial, advertising, or promotional materials, or use the Online Resume for commercial purposes.

If you add a Resume Button to your resume, when an employer receives your resume, he/she will be able to click on the button(s) and contact you through a form. The information included on the form is confidential and is only shared with third parties that are part of the job application process. By including Resume Buttons on your resume you accept to share your information with the employer and any third party that is part of the job application process.

    Once Sender communicates with you through the Resume Button feature you will receive a notification on your Dashboard and also an email. You may also sign up to receive text notifications, this may be enabled or disabled on your Dashboard or via text message. The amount of text notifications you will receive will depend on how many times you are contacted. Standard text message rates may apply.

  11. Invited Submissions

    From time to time, we or our partners, may request submissions of ideas or improvements through promotions, surveys or otherwise (“Invited Submissions”). Sometimes Provider may incentivize users to participate in Invited Submissions. Where this is the case, please carefully read any Additional Terms that govern those submissions, as they will affect your legal rights. If no Additional Terms govern those submissions, then these Terms will apply in full to any Invited Submissions you make. IN ANY EVENT, ANY MATERIAL YOU SEND TO US WILL NOT BE TREATED AS CONFIDENTIAL. Regardless of any industry custom or practice, we will not pay you for the use of any content or submissions that you submit to the Site.

  12. Disclaimer Regarding Testimonials

    The Service may contain testimonials and opinions (“Testimonials”) by users of our services. These testimonials reflect the real-life experiences and opinions of such users. However, the experiences are personal to those particular users, and may not necessarily be representative of all users of our services. We do not claim, and you should not assume, that all users will have the same experiences. YOUR INDIVIDUAL RESULTS MAY VARY.

    The testimonials on the Service are submitted in various forms such as text, audio and/or video, and are reviewed by us before being posted. They appear on the Service as given by the users, except for the correction of grammar or typing errors. Some testimonials may have been shortened for the sake of brevity where the full testimonial contained extraneous information not relevant to the general public. Photos added next to testimonials may not always represent the person giving the testimonial. The views and opinions contained in the testimonials belong solely to the individual user and do not reflect our views and opinions. We are not affiliated with users who provide testimonials, and users are not paid in cash or compensated for their testimonials unless the testimonial is part of an incentivized Invited Submission.

  13. Copyright and Infringement Notification Policy

    We respect the intellectual property rights of others and encourage you to do the same. Accordingly, we have a policy of removing content that violates the intellectual property rights of others, suspending access to the Service (or any portion thereof) to any user who uses the Service in violation of someone else’s intellectual property rights, and/or terminating in appropriate circumstances the Account of any user who uses the Service in violation of someone else’s intellectual property rights.

    a) Submitting a Notification for Removing Infringing Content. We have implemented procedures for receiving written notification of claimed copyright infringement and for processing such claims in accordance with applicable law (including 17 U.S.C. § 512 Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”)). If you believe your copyright or other intellectual property right is being infringed by a user of this Site, please provide written notice to our agent for notice of claims of infringement at either:

    Attn: BOLD LLC, DMCA Designated Agent,
    Email: legal@bold.com

    To be sure the matter is handled immediately, your written notice must:

    • Contain your physical or electronic signature;
    • Identify the copyrighted work or other intellectual property alleged to have been infringed;
    • Identify the allegedly infringing material in a sufficiently precise manner to allow us to locate that material;
    • Contain adequate information by which we can contact you (including postal address, telephone number, and e-mail address);
    • Contain a statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted material or other intellectual property is not authorized by the owner, the owner's agent or the law;
    • Contain a statement that the information in the written notice is accurate; and
    • Contain statement, under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the copyright or other intellectual property right owner.

    Unless the notice pertains to copyright or other intellectual property infringement, the agent will be unable to address the listed concern.

    b) Submitting a Counter-Notification. We will notify you that we have removed or disabled access to copyright-protected material that you provided if such removal is pursuant to a validly received DMCA take-down notice. In response, if you believe the material was removed or disabled by mistake or because of a misidentification of the material, you may provide our agent with a written counter-notification that includes the following information:

    1. Your physical or electronic signature;
    2. Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled, and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled;
    3. A statement from you under the penalty of perjury, that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled; and
    4. Your name, physical address and telephone number, and a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of a court for the judicial district in which your physical address is located, or if your physical address is outside of the United States of America, for any judicial district in which we may be located, and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of allegedly infringing material or an agent of such person.

    c) Termination of Repeat Infringers. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to terminate the account or access of any user of this Site or Service who is the subject of repeated DMCA or other infringement notifications. Provider seeks to preserve any and all exemptions from liability that may be available under the copyright law, but does not necessarily stipulate that it is a service provider as defined in USC section 512(c) or elsewhere.

    You are solely responsible for your interactions with other users of the Service and any other parties with whom you interact through the Service.

These sites may contain information about job opportunities, employers, job candidates or material that some people may find inappropriate or offensive. These other sites are not under the control of Provider, and you acknowledge that (whether or not such sites are affiliated in any way with Provider), Provider is not responsible for the accuracy of job postings, employer descriptions, candidate resumes, legality, decency, or any other aspect of the content of such sites. The inclusion of such a link does not imply endorsement of any site by Provider or any association with its operators. If you elect to use such third-party sites, and/or if you elect to ‘click’ on a link or button, you understand that (a) you will be leaving our Site and (b) your use of any such third-party sites will be subject to any terms and conditions and privacy policies required by the applicable third-party provider(s). Provider does not make any representations or warranties as to the security of any information (including, without limitation, credit card and other personal information) you might be requested to give any third party, and you irrevocably waive any claim against us with respect to such sites.

  20. Governing Law.

    To the fullest extent permitted by the applicable jurisdiction, these Terms shall be governed by, construed, and enforced in accordance with the laws applicable to the merchant outlet location that processed your payment. Therefore, for transactions processed by BOLD LLC, the laws of the State of New York, United States of America, shall apply. If your transaction was processed by Auxiliant S.à.r.l, the laws of Luxembourg shall apply.

    Notwithstanding the foregoing, If you are a U.S. resident, except as otherwise provided in this section or as otherwise required by law, these Terms involve transactions between the parties in interstate commerce and shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 USC § 1-19 of the United States of America. Judgment upon any interim or final award shall be entered and confirmed in any court or tribunal of competent jurisdiction. The substantive law of the State of New York (excluding its conflicts of law provisions) shall apply to all disputes and these Terms. If there is a difference between the Federal Arbitration Act and New York law, the Federal Arbitration Act controls. In any circumstances where the foregoing Terms permit the parties to litigate in court, the parties hereby agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within New York, New York for such purpose.

    These Terms will not be governed by the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.

  21. Arbitration.

    Please read this carefully if you are a resident of the United States of America. It affects your rights. Depending on your place of residence, these Terms may not apply to you.

    (a) US Residents: To the fullest extent permissible by law, with the exception of disputes pertaining to Provider’s intellectual property rights and certain statutory claims that, pursuant to law, are not arbitrable, any dispute of any kind between you and Provider arising under these Terms shall be resolved through binding arbitration pursuant to the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures on an individual basis with no class relief. The arbitrator shall be a retired judge or justice of any New York state or federal court with substantial experience in the internet industry and shall follow New York substantive law in adjudicating the dispute, except that this Section 24 shall be construed as a “written agreement to arbitrate” pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”). You and we agree that we intend that this Section 24 satisfies the “writing” requirement of the FAA. The hearing shall be conducted in the county that encompasses the billing address you have provided to Provider. For any claim in which you seek U.S. $10,000.00 or less, you shall have the choice as to whether the hearing is conducted in person, by telephone, or instead the arbitrator decides the dispute without a hearing. For those claims that the arbitrator determines are not frivolous, Provider shall pay the costs and fees of JAMS and the arbitrator. Provider agrees that it will not seek reimbursement from You for its costs and fees incurred by it in the arbitration. AGREEMENT TO THESE TERMS CONSTITUTES AN AGREEMENT TO PURSUE YOUR CLAIM ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND A WAIVER OF THE ABILITY TO PURSUE YOUR CLAIM IN A CLASS ACTION.

    (b) Non-Us Residents: If any controversy, allegation, or claim (including any non-contractual claim) arises out of or relates to the Site or these Terms, then you and we agree to send a written notice to the other providing a reasonable description of this Section 24(b) dispute, along with a proposed resolution of it. Our notice to you will be sent to you based on the most recent contact information that you provide us. If no such information exists or if such information is not current, then, we have no obligation under this section. Your notice must be sent to us at legal@bold.com. For a period of sixty (60) days from the date of receipt of notice from the other party, Provider and you will engage in a dialogue in order to attempt to resolve the dispute, though nothing will require either you or Provider to resolve the Section 24(b) dispute on terms either you or Provider, in each of our sole discretion, are uncomfortable. Nothing in this Section will prevent a party from pursuing their claims in Court or another complaint process.

    (c) EU Residents: You may have a right to of out-of-court settlement of certain disputes in accordance with Regulation (EU) No. 524/2013. Details can be found in Regulation (EU) No. 524/2013 and at: http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr. We are neither obliged nor willing to participate in an out-of-court dispute resolution procedure before a consumer arbitration board. Your statutory rights regarding choice of law and venue, to the extent applicable, remain unaffected.

  22. Local Regulations.

    Provider makes no representation that Materials or other content on the Service are appropriate or available for use outside of the United States of America (“United States”), and if accessing the Service from outside the United States, then Provider makes no representation that Materials or other content on the Site are appropriate or available for use from your current location. Provider may have certain localized websites available to you in the United Kingdom, Canada, France, Belgium, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Poland and Spain, and their territories, possessions and protectorates, but makes no representation as to availability and appropriateness of the Service in such jurisdictions. If you choose to access the Service from other locations outside the United States, you do so on your own initiative and at your own risk.

    You are responsible for complying with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable.

  23. Electronic Communications.

    The communications between you and Provider may be made through electronic means, whether you visit the Service or send Provider emails, or whether Provider posts notices on the Service or communicates with you via email. For contractual purposes, you (1) consent to receive communications from Provider in an electronic form; and (2) agree that all terms and conditions, agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that Provider provides to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications would satisfy if it were to be in writing. The foregoing does not affect your statutory rights.

  24. General.

    If any provision of these Terms shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. This is the entire agreement between you and Provider relating to the matters contained here and the Site.
