3.1 Service Account. When Subscriber signs up and pays for a Subscription Plan, eConscribi will provide Subscriber with an Account within the Service. Subscriber can create job postings on the Service, and then link those postings to external websites (for instance, the Subscriber’s website).

3.2 Free Trial. eConscribi allows potential Subscriber to apply to try the Service free of charge for thirty (30) days (“Free Trial”). To do so, potential Subscriber must submit to eConscribi a completed trial registration through eConscribi’s website (“Registration”). If the registration is approved (which approval may be withheld in the sole discretion of eConscribi), the Subscriber will receive an e-mail containing all necessary information in order for Subscriber to log into the Service. If the Subscriber chooses to subscribe to the Service after the Free Trial, all Account settings and customizations will be saved and immediately accessible to Subscriber. There is no obligation to create an Account after the Free Trial ends. Use of the Service during a Free Trial is provided solely for evaluation of the features of the Service. The Service may not be used commercially (such as for purposes of publishing job postings or accepting or managing real Applicant Data) during a Free Trial. eConscribi may immediately terminate any Free Trial Account which is used for commercial purposes, without notice or liability therefor.

3.3 Login. Subscriber is responsible for the activities of any and all persons accessing and using the Service using Subscriber’s Account. Each individual authorized by Subscriber to access the Service using Subscriber’s Account will be provided with a unique user name and password (“Login”). Subscriber agrees that it will not share a Login among multiple individuals. Subject to any limitation on the number of individual Logins available under the Subscription Plan for which Subscriber has subscribed to, access to and use of the Service is restricted to the specified number of individual Logins permitted under the paid for Subscription Plan. Subscriber shall use all reasonable means to secure user names and passwords associated with the Account, and shall promptly notify eConscribi if it suspects that any user name and password has been compromised.

Subscriber agrees that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications provided by eConscribi electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communication be in writing.

4. SUBSCRIPTION PLAN; PAYMENT

4.1 Charges. Subject to Section 4.2, all charges associated with Subscriber’s access to and use of the Service (“Payment”) are due in full upon commencement of Subscriber’s Subscription Term. If Subscriber fails to pay the Payment within five (5) business days of eConscribi’s notice to Subscriber that payment is due or delinquent, or if Subscriber does not update payment information upon eConscribi’s request, in addition to eConscribi’s other remedies, eConscribi may suspend or terminate access to and use of the Service by Subscriber. All sales are final. eConscribi only accepts credit cards, and all fees are payable in U.S. Dollars. All payments and refunds are processed by our third party payment provider, as described in eConscribi’s Privacy Policy.

4.2 Subscription Plan Upgrades. If Subscriber chooses to upgrade Subscriber’s Subscription Plan or increase the number of authorized Logins during the Subscription Term (a “Subscription Plan Upgrade”), any incremental Payment associated with such Subscription Plan Upgrade will be prorated over the remaining period of Subscriber’s then current Subscription Term, charged to Subscriber’s Account and due and payable upon implementation of such Subscription Plan Upgrade. In any future Subscription Term, Subscriber’s Payment will reflect any such Subscription Plan Upgrades.

4.3 Refunds on Downgrades. No refunds or credits for Payment or other fees or payments will be provided to Subscriber if Subscriber elects to downgrade the Subscription Plan. Downgrading the Subscription Plan may cause loss of content, features, or capacity of the Service as available to Subscriber under Subscriber’s Account, and eConscribi does not accept any liability for such loss. eConscribi reserves the right to contact Subscriber about special pricing if Subscriber maintains an exceptionally high number of Logins, an unusually high monthly recruitment ratio per Login or other excessive stress on the Service.

4.4 Refunds on Termination. No refunds or credits for Payment or other fees or payments will be provided to Subscriber if Subscriber elects to terminate Subscriber’s subscription to the Service or cancel Subscriber’s Account prior to the end of Subscriber’s then effective Subscription Term. Following the termination or cancellation of Subscriber’s subscription to the Service and/or Account, eConscribi reserves the right to delete all Subscriber Data in the normal course of operation. Subscriber Data cannot be recovered once Subscriber’s Account is cancelled.

4.5 Taxes. Unless otherwise stated, eConscribi’s charges do not include any taxes, levies, duties or similar governmental assessments, including value-added, sales, use or withholding taxes assessable by any local, state, provincial or foreign jurisdiction (collectively “Taxes”). Subscriber is responsible for paying Taxes except those assessable against eConscribi based on its net income. eConscribi will invoice Subscriber for such Taxes if eConscribi believes it has a legal obligation to do so and Subscriber agrees to pay such Taxes if so invoiced.

5. OWNERSHIP. As between the parties, eConscribi owns all right, title and interest (including all Intellectual Property Rights) in and to the Service (including without limitation all underlying source code, algorithms and models) and any software, technology, materials and information owned by eConscribi prior to the Effective Date or created, authored, developed, made, conceived or reduced to practice by eConscribi after the Effective Date. Nothing herein shall be construed to transfer any rights, title or ownership of the Service or any eConscribi software, technology, materials, information or Intellectual Property Rights to Subscriber. Subscriber is not required to provide any ideas, feedback or suggestions regarding any of eConscribi’s products or services (“Feedback”) to eConscribi. To the extent Subscriber does provide any Feedback to eConscribi, Subscriber agrees to assign and hereby does assign all right, title and interest in and to such Feedback to eConscribi and acknowledges that eConscribi may freely use, reproduce, modify, distribute, make, have made, sell, offer for sale, import and otherwise exploit in any manner such Feedback without payment of any royalties or other consideration to Subscriber.

6. TERM; TERMINATION

6.1 Term. These Terms shall be effective as of the Effective Date and will terminate at the sooner of: (i) the end of the Free Trial, if Subscriber does not subscribe to the Service or (ii) the end of the Subscription Plan period (the “Subscription Term”).

6.2 Renewal. Either Subscriber or eConscribi may elect to terminate Subscriber’s Account and subscription to the Service as of the end of Subscriber’s then current Subscription Term by providing notice, in accordance with these Terms, on or prior to the date thirty (30) days preceding the end of such Term. Unless Subscriber’s Account and subscription to the Service is so terminated, Subscriber’s subscription to the Service will renew for a Term equivalent in length to the then expiring Term. The Subscription Charges applicable to Subscriber’s subscription to the Service for any such subsequent Term shall be eConscribi’s standard Subscription Charges for the Subscription Plan to which Subscriber has subscribed as of the time such subsequent Term commences.

6.3 Termination. If Subscriber terminates Subscriber’s subscription to the Service or cancel Subscriber’s Account prior to the end of Subscriber’s then effective Subscription Term or eConscribi effects such termination or cancellation pursuant to Section 2.4, in addition to other amounts Subscriber may owe eConscribi, Subscriber must immediately pay any then unpaid Subscription Charges associated with the remainder of such Subscription Term. This amount will not be payable by Subscriber in the event Subscriber terminates Subscriber’s subscription to the Service or cancel Subscriber’s Account as a result of a material breach of these Terms by eConscribi, provided that Subscriber provides advance notice of such breach to eConscribi and afford eConscribi not less than thirty (30) days to reasonably cure such breach. eConscribi reserves the right to modify, suspend or terminate the Service (or any part thereof), Subscriber’s Account or Subscriber’s right to access and use the Service, and remove, disable and discard any of the Subscriber Data if eConscribi believes that Subscriber has violated these Terms. Unless legally prohibited from doing so, eConscribi will use commercially reasonable efforts to contact Subscriber directly via email to notify Subscriber when taking any of the foregoing actions. eConscribi shall not be liable to Subscriber or any other third party for any such modification, suspension or discontinuation of Subscriber’s right to access and use the Service. Any suspected fraudulent, abusive, or illegal activity by Subscriber may be referred to law enforcement authorities at eConscribi’s sole discretion.

6.4 Effect of Termination.

7. REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES

Subscriber agrees to, at its own expense, defend, indemnify and hold harmless eConscribi and its directors, officers and employees from and against any liabilities, damages, losses, judgments, costs, expenses (including reasonable attorney’s fees), claims, actions, demands and suits arising out of or relating to any actual or alleged breach by Subscriber of any covenant, representation or warranty of these Terms or any use or misuse by Subscriber of the Service, except to the extent any of the foregoing arises directly from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of eConscribi.

9. DISCLAIMER. THE SERVICE AND SITE ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THESE TERMS ANY WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO THE SUBJECT MATTER OF THESE TERMS, AND EACH PARTY EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, NONINFRINGEMENT, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND IMPLIED WARRANTIES ARISING FROM COURSE OF DEALING OR PERFORMANCE. eCoNSCRIBI and ITS SUPPLIERS, LICENSORS, PARTNERS AND SERVICE PROVIDERS DO NOT WARRANT THAT THE FUNCTIONALITY PROVIDED BY THE SERVICE WILL BE CORRECT, UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY OR ERROR-FREE OR THAT DEFECTS WILL BE CORRECTED. eCONSCRIBI DOES NOT WARRANT THE RESULTS OF USE OF THE SERVICE.

10. CONFIDENTIALITY. Each party shall keep confidential all information and materials provided or made available by the other party that is marked as confidential or proprietary or (for orally disclosed information) is identified as confidential or proprietary at the time of disclosure and confirmed in writing (including e-mail) as such within fifteen (15) days of the disclosure (“Confidential Information”). The features, functionality and content of the Service, any Service documentation, and any information regarding planned modifications or updates to the Service or other eConscribi products and services constitutes Confidential Information of eConscribi. Each party shall keep and instruct its employees and agents to keep Confidential Information confidential by using at least the same care and discretion as used with that party’s own confidential information, but in no case less than a prudent and reasonable standard of care. Neither party shall use Confidential Information other than for purposes of performing its obligations hereunder or as authorized by the disclosing party. Information or materials shall not constitute Confidential Information if it is: (i) in the public domain through no fault of the receiving party, (ii) known to the receiving party prior to the time of disclosure by the disclosing party, (iii) lawfully and rightfully disclosed to the receiving party by a third party on a non-confidential basis, (iv) developed by the receiving party without reference to Confidential Information or (v) required to be disclosed by law or legal process, provided that the receiving party promptly provide notice to the disclosing party of such request or requirement so the disclosing party may seek appropriate protective orders. If any party, its employees or agents breaches or threatens to breach the obligations of this Section 10, the affected party may seek injunctive relief from a court of competent jurisdiction, in addition to its other remedies, as the inadequacy of monetary damages and irreparable harm are acknowledged.

11. Limitation of Liability. eCONSCRIBI SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO SUBSCRIBER IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS FOR ANY PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, RELIANCE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOST BUSINESS, REVENUE, OR PROFITS, WHETHER BASED ON BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), OR OTHERWISE, AND WHETHER OR NOT eCONSCRIBI WAS ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSS OR DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT WILL eCONSCRIBI’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY AND DAMAGES IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS EXCEED THE AGGREGATE PAYMENTS MADE BY SUBSCRIBER TO eCONSCRIBI HEREUNDER DURING THE TWELVE MONTHS PRECEDING THE DATE OF THE CLAIM. THE PARTIES AGREE THAT THE LIMITATIONS AND DISCLAIMERS OF LIABILITY SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION 11 WILL APPLY EVEN IF ANY LIMITED REMEDY SPECIFIED IN THESE TERMS ARE FOUND TO HAVE FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE AND REGARDLESS OF THE THEORY OF LIABILITY. THE PARTIES AGREE THAT THE LIMITATIONS AND DISCLAIMERS OF LIABILITY UNDER THIS SECTION 11 CONSTITUTE A FUNDAMENTAL BASIS OF THEIR BARGAIN. Subscriber acknowledges that the allocations of risk and disclaimers of warranties and liabilities hereunder are in part a reflection of Subscriber receiving the ability to USE the Service without eConscribi receiving any compensation therefor.

SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, WHICH MEANS THAT SOME OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO SUBSCRIBER. IN THESE JURISDICTIONS, eCONSCRIBI’S LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE GREATEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.

12.4 Assignment. Subscriber may not, directly or indirectly, assign any of its rights or obligations under these Terms without the prior written consent of eConscribi, which consent will not be unreasonably withheld. Any merger (by operation of law or otherwise), consolidation, reorganization, change in control or sale of all or substantially all of the assets of Subscriber or similar transaction shall be deemed to constitute an attempted assignment of these Terms. eConscribi may, without Subscriber’s consent, assign these Terms with Subscriber to any affiliate or in connection with any merger or change of control of eConscribi or the sale of all or substantially all of eConscribi’s assets provided that any such successor agrees to fulfill its obligations pursuant to these Terms.

A waiver of any provision of these Terms will only be valid if provided in writing and will only be applicable to the specific incident and occurrence so waived. The failure by either party to insist upon the strict performance of these Terms, or to exercise any term hereof, will not act as a waiver of any right, promise or term, which will continue in full force and effect.

The parties agree that the state and federal courts in Santa Clara County, California will have exclusive jurisdiction and venue under these Terms, and the parties hereby agree to submit to such jurisdiction exclusively.
