Security Careers claims no ownership or control over any User Content. You or a third party licensor, as appropriate, retain all patent, trademark and copyright to any User Content you submit, post or display on or through Security Careers and you are responsible for protecting those rights, as appropriate. By submitting, posting or displaying User Content on or through Security Careers, you grant Security Careers a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable, sub-licensable license to use, reproduce, adapt, distribute and publish such User Content through Security Careers. In addition, by submitting, posting or displaying User Content which is intended to be available to the general public, you grant Security Careers a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license to reproduce, adapt, distribute and publish such User Content for the purpose of promoting Security Careers and its services. Security Careers will discontinue this licensed use within a commercially reasonable period after such User Content is removed from Security Careers. Security Careers reserves the right to refuse to accept, post, display or transmit any User Content in its sole discretion.

You also represent and warrant that You have the right to grant, or that the holder of any rights, including moral rights in such content has completely and effectively waived all such rights and validly and irrevocably granted to You the right to grant, the license stated above. If You post User Content in any public area of any Security Careers Site, You also permit any User to access, display, view, store and reproduce such User Content for personal use. Subject to the foregoing, the owner of such User Content placed on any Security Careers Site retains any and all rights that may exist in such User Content.

6. Security Careers Liability.

The Security Careers Sites act as, among other things, venues for (i) employers to post job opportunities and search for and evaluate job candidates and (ii) candidates to post resumes and Profiles and search for and evaluate job opportunities. Security Careers does not screen or censor the listings, including Profiles offered. Security Careers is not involved in, and does not control, the actual transaction between employers and candidates. As a result, Security Careers is not responsible for User Content, the quality, safety or legality of the jobs or resumes posted, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of employers to offer job opportunities to candidates or the ability of candidates to fill job openings and Security Careers makes no representations about any jobs, resumes or User Content on the Security Careers Sites. While Security Careers reserves the right in its sole discretion to remove User Content, job postings, resumes or other material from the Security Careers Sites from time to time, Security Careers does not assume any obligation to do so and to the extent permitted by law, disclaims any liability for failing to take any such action.

Security Careers Networking provides a venue for individuals to network for professional and personal purposes and Security Careers does not screen or censor the Profiles or User Content on the Security Careers Sites. Security Careers is not involved in the actual communications between Users. As a result, Security Careers has no control over the accuracy, reliability, completeness, or timeliness of the Profiles or User Content submitted on the Security Careers Sites and makes no representations about any Profile or User Content on the Security Careers Sites.

Note that there are risks, including but not limited to the risk of physical harm, of dealing with strangers, underage persons or people acting under false pretenses. You assume all risks associated with dealing with other users with whom You come in contact through the Security Careers Sites. By its very nature other people’s information may be offensive, harmful or inaccurate, and in some cases will be mislabeled or deceptively labeled. We expect that You will use caution and common sense when using the Security Careers Sites.

Because User authentication on the Internet is difficult, Security Careers cannot and does not confirm that each User is who they claim to be. Because we do not and cannot be involved in User-to-User dealings or control the behavior of participants on any Security Careers Site, in the event that You have a dispute with one or more Users, You release Security Careers (and our agents and employees) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential and direct and indirect) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes to the fullest extent permitted by law.

The Security Careers Sites and the Security Careers Content may contain inaccuracies or typographical errors. Security Careers makes no representations about the accuracy, reliability, completeness, or timeliness of any Security Careers Site or the Security Careers Content. The use of all Security Careers Sites and the Security Careers Content is at Your own risk. Changes are periodically made to Security Careers Sites and may be made at any time. Security Careers cannot guarantee and does not promise any specific results from use of any Security Careers Site. No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained by a User from Security Careers or through or from any Security Careers Site shall create any warranty not expressly stated herein.

If You are a California resident, You waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him or her must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor.”

Security Careers encourages You to keep a back-up copy of any of Your User Content. To the extent permitted by law, in no event shall Security Careers be liable for the deletion, loss, or unauthorized modification of any User Content.

Security Careers does not provide or make any representation as to the quality or nature of any of the third party products or services purchased through any Security Careers Site, or any other representation, warranty or guaranty. Any such undertaking, representation, warranty or guaranty would be furnished solely by the provider of such third party products or services, under the terms agreed to by the provider.
