Mandatory Arbitration. These Terms & Conditions contain a mandatory arbitration provision, as detailed below, that requires you to arbitrate, individually, all disputes or claims that you may have with us, our parent, related parties, advertiser clients and marketing partners (collectively, “Marketing Partners”) who are third-party beneficiaries of the mandatory arbitration provision. Thus, for example, if you provide prior express written consent to be contacted via telemarketing or SMS/text messaging, any claims that you may have regarding any telemarketing or SMS/text messages that you receive are subject to the mandatory arbitration provision. The mandatory arbitration provision also waives your right to participate in a class action or multi-party arbitration. There are two narrow exceptions to the mandatory arbitration provision: (1) you may opt-out by providing written notice of your decision to do so within thirty (30) days of the date that you first register on a Site; and (2) you may opt-out by filing a claim in Small Claims Court provided the requirements described below are met.
How the Sites Work. We and our search partners comb the Internet for job listings including those related to the parameters our users provide (“Job Listings”). We also provide job and career related content that currently includes information on education, job searches, career advice, interviewing techniques and salaries and benefits. We provide the Job Listings to our users in exchange for our users providing us with certain information about themselves that enables us to identify products and services that may interest them and sharing this information with our marketing partners. Our marketing partners compensate us for connecting them with interested consumers.
To qualify to get access to the Job Listings, you’ll need to enter a valid e-mail address as well as your name, address, and date of birth. We’ll also ask a series of survey questions relating to the type of job you’re looking for including your education and skills and may seek other information to help us narrow the Job Listings. We may also ask other questions and use all of this information to tailor the products and/or services our marketing partners may offer you. We will ask you to confirm that all of your information is accurate and agree to be contacted by our marketing partners, typically via email.
No Representations or Warranties. The Job Listings and other job or career related information and any offers for goods and services offered on a Site and any other content, information, documents, graphics and images displayed on a Site (collectively, “Site Content”) are provided by us and our marketing partners, employers, job listing aggregators and other third parties (“collectively, “Content Providers”) and could include inaccuracies, typographical errors or other errors. We make no commitment to update or correct any errors on a Site.
We do not verify the accuracy of the Job Listings or that any jobs that appear in the Job Listings are in fact currently available. We make no representations or warranties that you will get a job as a result of visiting a Site and applying to an opening contained in the Job Listings or that the Job Listings are current, accurate or reflect open positions. Moreover, we have not reviewed in any way any of the employers that have positions included in the Job Listings. When you apply for a job, you do so at your own risk.
You also understand and agree that a Site may, at times, be inaccessible or inoperable for any reason, including: (a) equipment or communications malfunctions; (b) periodic maintenance, repairs or administrative reviews which we may undertake from time-to-time; or (c) causes beyond our control or which are not foreseeable by us. We will not be responsible or liable in any way to you or anyone else due to or as a result of any such inaccessibility or inoperability.

You do not need to consent to be called or texted by the parties listed in the consent to get the Job Listings, to access Site Content or to purchase any of the goods or services offered on a Site. If you provide consent, CAC an affiliate of ours and any of our other affiliates or Marketing Partners named in the consent may send you SMS messages from their short codes or long codes. Message Frequency Varies. The mobile carriers are not liable for delayed or undelivered Messages.
Consumers may request up to a maximum of 10 offers on selected days of the week, with no more than 4 text messages in one day. Consumers may opt out of receiving text messages by sending or replying “STOP”, “END” or “QUIT” to any SMS message they receive. Consumers may also reply with “HELP” or click here for support.

Arbitration/Dispute Resolution. You agree to arbitrate any and all claims arising out of or related to the Agreement. If you have a dispute concerning any aspect of the Agreement, including without limitation, your participation in a Promotion, entitlement to an Incentive or a telemarketing call or SMS/text message that you received from us or a Marketing Partner, you should first contact customer support on the Site or complete a customer support ticket. We will attempt to resolve the matter to your satisfaction within thirty (30) days of our receipt of a customer support ticket. We may choose to provide you with a final written settlement offer during this process. If we provide you with a final written settlement offer and you don't accept it, if we can't otherwise satisfactorily resolve your dispute, or if you choose to skip this step, you must submit your dispute for resolution by arbitration before the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") in the county where you live by filing a separate Demand for .
An AAA arbitrator will have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute or claims that you may have with us—and our Marketing Partners who are third-party beneficiaries of the mandatory arbitration provision—arising out of or related to the Agreement. Matters subject to mandatory arbitration include, without limitation, whether this Arbitration/Dispute Resolution provision applies to your particular claim or dispute, and any claim that all or any part of the Agreement, including this provision, are/is unenforceable. If the claim is against us, you will need our mailing address to file online. To obtain our mailing address, contact us by clicking here.
If we have a dispute, we will submit our dispute for resolution by arbitration before the AAA in Minnesota. If either party files for arbitration, it will be conducted in accordance with the then current AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules.
If you proceed to arbitration against us, you will pay all AAA filing fees and we will pay for all administration and arbitrator fees unless the arbitrator determines that your claim is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)). For claims brought by you of Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000.00) or less, you can choose whether the arbitration proceeds in person, by telephone or based only on submissions. The arbitrator may award any form of individual or equitable relief, including injunctive relief. Any award will be final and conclusive to the parties and may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. If you initiate arbitration against us and the arbitrator awards you relief that is greater than our final written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was selected, then we will pay you a minimum recovery of Five Hundred Dollars ($500.00), plus we will reimburse any reasonable expenses incurred by your attorney, if any, including fees reasonably accrued for investigating, preparing and pursuing the claim in arbitration. Although under some laws we may have a right to an award of attorneys' fees and expenses if we prevail in arbitration, we agree that we will not seek such an award from you. You and your attorneys are not required to keep the results of the arbitration confidential. You agree to the entry of injunctive relief to stop such a lawsuit or to remove you as a participant in such a suit.
Class Action Waiver. The arbitration provision contained in these Terms & Conditions does not constitute a waiver of any of your rights and remedies to pursue a claim individually and not as a class action in binding arbitration as provided above. This provision preventing you from bringing, joining or participating in class action lawsuits is an independent agreement.
Exceptions to Mandatory Arbitration. There are two narrow exceptions to mandatory arbitration. First, you may opt-out of the Arbitration/Dispute Resolution provision by providing written notice of your decision within thirty (30) days of the date that you first register on the Sites. To obtain our mailing address, contact us by clicking here.
Second, you may choose to pursue your dispute or claim in Small Claims Court rather than by arbitration but only if your dispute or claim qualifies for Small Claims Court in a location where jurisdiction and venue over both you and Simple Job Finder is proper.
Other than these two exceptions, you must arbitrate any claims as provided above.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT, VIA YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THESE DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROVISIONS, YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL, AS WELL AS YOUR RIGHT TO BRING, JOIN OR PARTICIPATE AS A PLAINTIFF OR A CLASS MEMBER IN A CLASS ACTION SUIT OR MULTI-PARTY ARBITRATION BROUGHT AGAINST US, OUR MARKETING PARTNERS OR ANY SERVICE PROVIDER USED BY US TO PROVIDE THE SUBJECT SERVICE.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. WHEN PERMITTED BY LAW, WE AND OUR MARKETING PARTNERS AND SERVICE PROVIDERS, WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR LOST PROFITS, REVENUES, OR DATA, FINANCIAL LOSSES OR INDIRECT, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES.
