General Terms of Service
Last Updated: Sep 09, 2019
A. The following terms and conditions apply to all Work Seekers, Employers, and other users who access or use the Site, or otherwise indicate their acceptance to this Agreement.
1. The ExpertTal(ExpertTal) Services
ExpertTal may make available certain Job Ads and other job-related contents, including links to third-party websites (such listings and other contents, (“Job Listings” or “Job Ads”), through ExpertTal’s search results or otherwise through the Site. Job Ads are created and provided by third parties over whom ExpertTal exercises no control; you acknowledge and understand that we have no control over Job Ads. Some of these third parties may attempt to charge job seekers a fee to apply to a particular job, although ExpertTal endeavors not to make such Job Ads available on the Site. ExpertTal’s service, which is free to Job Seekers, links to Job Ads and has no control over any conditions third parties might impose once a Job Seeker has submitted an application or left the ExpertTal website. If you leave the ExpertTal website and choose to enter a third-party website, you accept any terms and conditions imposed by that third-party. Except for certain sponsored, featured or paid placements, the Job Ads contained on, or linked from, the Site are indexed or posted in an automated manner. ExpertTal does not have any obligation to screen any Job Ads, or to include any Job Ads in its search results or other listings, and may exclude or remove any Job Ads from the Site for any or no reason. We cannot confirm the accuracy or completeness of any Job Listing or other information submitted by any employer or other user, including the identity of such employer or other user. ExpertTal assumes no responsibility, and disclaims all liability, for the content, accuracy, completeness, legality, reliability, or availability of any Job Ads. You agree that ExpertTal may also provide search options to narrow down Job Ads search results by job type (i.e. full-time, part-time, etc.), and such job types are created independently and entirely by ExpertTal, and are not a direct reflection of the actual Job Ads. ExpertTal may in some circumstances be compensated by employers who post Job Ads, helping keep ExpertTal free for work seekers. ExpertTal ranks Job Ads based on a combination of employer bids and relevance, such as search terms and other activity on ExpertTal.
In addition, by using ExpertTal, you agree that ExpertTal is not responsible for the content of the Employer’s Job Ad, application form, messages, screener questions, testing assessments or their format or method of delivery and that ExpertTal does not guarantee receipt of your application by the Employer, or your receipt of messages from the Employer. Please note that ExpertTal does not choose the questions asked by Employers or decide the job qualification criteria of Employers. ExpertTal is not responsible for the content or accessibility of Job Ads or other material provided by third-party Employers for publication.
1(c) Regardless of whether you are an Employer or Job Seeker, when you view, send, store or receive materials (including Job Listings, resumes, and messages) through or using the Site, ExpertTal may, for example, use such materials for data analysis, quality control, or to refine the Site or any other ExpertTal product or service (including to provide better search results and other listings for Job Seekers and Employers), whether via automated means or otherwise. When an Employer views, sends, stores or receives materials through or using the Site, ExpertTal may also inform a Job Seeker that an Employer has taken an action with regards to a Job Ad, Job Seeker’s Resume, or application such as pausing or closing a Job Ad, opening the Resume or application, viewing the Resume or application, responding to the Resume or application, and making a decision with regards to the application or Job Ad, and you hereby consent to ExpertTal taking such actions. ExpertTal assumes no responsibility, and disclaims all liability, for the content, accuracy, completeness, legality, reliability, or availability of any job listing, Career Page, job solicitation, screener question, answer to screener question, resume information you post, send or receive through the Site. If you see any inaccuracy in any such material, it is your responsibility to correct such information or to contact ExpertTal to do so.
1(d) Regardless of whether you are an Employer or Job Seeker, ExpertTal may use application materials (including resumes and responses to screener questions) and the recency of your activity on ExpertTal to determine whether the words of any Job Seeker’s resume and answers to screener questions match the words of a Job Listing or Resume query, and vice-versa. Regardless of whether you are an Employer or Job Seeker, you agree and consent that ExpertTal may differentiate those matching resumes and screener questions from those that do not match, and present them to Employers as matches or not matches. ExpertTal may also use such information in order to improve the Site or any other ExpertTal product or service (including by displaying or otherwise making available potentially relevant Job Listings and resumes to Job Seekers and Employers).
1(e) Regardless of whether you are an Employer or Job Seeker, ExpertTal may provide certain categories of information to you for informational purposes only. For example, ExpertTal may provide you with data regarding estimated salaries for a certain Job Listing, or about estimated applies to a Job Listing you may receive as an Employer. These figures provided by ExpertTal are estimates given for informational purposes only, and they are subject to change or varying levels of accuracy. With respect to information regarding estimated applies, if you are an Employer participating in the ExpertTal Ads Program, please note that this is not the information you are purchasing from ExpertTal and you are not charged per apply. ExpertTal may also include salary estimations on pages other than Job Listings on the Site. Please note that all salary figures are approximations based upon multiple third party submissions to ExpertTal, including from ExpertTal affiliates. These figures are given to ExpertTal users for the purpose of generalized comparison only. Minimum wage may differ by jurisdiction and you should consult the employer for actual salary figures.
1(f) Regardless of whether you are an Employer or Job Seeker, ExpertTal may provide certain types of career-related or hiring-related information on its Site. All information contained in any ExpertTal career or hiring guide is for informational purposes only, and is in no way to be construed as professional career counselling or staffing services. You understand that ExpertTal may give suggestions or information regarding best-practices; however, you understand that it is ultimately your responsibility to determine how to pursue your job search or candidate search. You further understand that in providing any such career or hiring guides, ExpertTal is not acting as a job placement agency or staffing firm. You also understand that by referring to or using such career or hiring guides, you are not guaranteed job interviews, job placement, assurance of being hired, job candidates, or hires, and you take full responsibility for use of these services or guides. As a user of the Site, ExpertTal may, from time to time, send you emails from the career or hiring guides as part of its services to you. These emails may include but not be limited to, tips on improving your resume or how to use your resume effectively in the job application process, commonly asked interview questions, next steps after you have submitted an application, and how to prepare for a new job after you have been hired.
1(g) Regardless of whether you are an Employer or Job Seeker, ExpertTal may provide you an online questionnaire relating to your industry and/or your hiring or job searching needs. ExpertTal may match a Job Seeker’s responses to such questionnaires to determine, on the basis of the Employer’s responses to a questionnaire about its industry and/or hiring needs, whether such Job Seeker would match the Employer’s hiring criteria as specified in the Employer’s questionnaire responses. In the event ExpertTal determines that a Job Seeker matches the Employer’s hiring criteria, ExpertTal may connect such matching Job Seeker and Employer by sending a note informing both parties of the match, including but not limited to sending an Employer a short description of a Job Seeker taken directly from the Job Seeker’s responses to the questionnaire. In all events you will know what data we are providing to either a Job Seeker or Employer, or upon which we relied to make the match, because you have actively submitted it. If the Employer and Job Seeker express interest in each other, you agree ExpertTal may provide the Employer with an email address for the Job Seeker either provided by ExpertTal or the Job Seeker and, if you are a Job Seeker, you consent to this. Regardless of whether you are an Employer or Job Seeker, by submitting the completed questionnaire, you agree and consent to ExpertTal (i) conducting such matching, utilizing only material you have submitted through the questionnaire process, (ii) presenting matching Job Seekers to Employers, and vice versa and (iii) storing and analyzing such data submitted in response to such online questionnaires.
1(h) If you are a Job Seeker, you take a variety of actions on our Site. For example, you search for jobs, and ExpertTal knows and stores the titles of jobs you search for and click on, where those jobs are located, any information, including salary interest or experience of which you have informed ExpertTal, or the general salary range or experience level of the jobs you view (if indicated on the Job Listings), the Job Listings you apply to, your amount of activity or time of most recent activity on ExpertTal, or any of your other behavior on the ExpertTal site, when you use ExpertTal. You know exactly what this data is because you are the person who undertook the activity and the data pertains only to your activity. If you have an ExpertTal account or an ExpertTal-hosted resume, you agree that ExpertTal may associate this data with your ExpertTal profile and use this observed factual data to suggest jobs to you and to suggest you or your public resume to Employers that might be interested in a person who matches your behavior on ExpertTal. You also agree that ExpertTal may contact you based on this observed behavior for Employers or for ExpertTal itself. Please note, although information may be sent to you by a third party through the ExpertTal system, the aforementioned behavior does not include information relayed to you. However, ExpertTal may publicly display the fact that you have recently used the ExpertTal Site or the fact that you have recently used the ExpertTal system to correspond with a third party.
1(i) If you are a Job Seeker, please note that ExpertTal may automatically send you recommended jobs via the email address you use to create an ExpertTal account or apply to a job. ExpertTal may determine what these recommended jobs are on the basis of a variety of factors, including but not limited to, any information you input on the Site about yourself, searches you run on the Site, jobs you click on, jobs you apply to, or the materials you provide in a job application to an Employer through ExpertTal.
1(j) Screening Tools: ExpertTal may make screening tools available to Employers for Employer use in the application process, including screener questions, phone screen tools and employee assessments. ExpertTal is licensing these tools to you for your use as you determine. By using any screening product, made available to you by ExpertTal, you agree that you have made the determination to use these tools as part of your application process, and the substantive questions you ask or choose are solely determined by you, and are not being asked by ExpertTal. You are the sole party to determine which answers will qualify a candidate. You are solely responsible for the use of the screening tool including any results which are considered to have a “disparate impact”.
1(k) Regardless of whether you are a Job Seeker or an Employer, any emails or email notifications corresponding with any activity on or use of the Site through ExpertTal Apply, ExpertTal Chat, or any other communications service, product, or feature provided on or through the Site, are provided solely as a courtesy. ExpertTal disclaims all warranties with regards to the transmission or storage of such courtesy notices, does not guarantee their delivery or receipt, and does not guarantee the date or time at which they may be sent. In the event a message being sent is intended for a closed account, these messages will not be deliverable. Further, if you are an Employer and you posted a Job Listing directly on ExpertTal, applications are sent only to your ExpertTal dashboard; any other notifications you may receive are provided solely as a courtesy to you. For example, you may not receive application email notifications if a job seeker has not answered screener questions correctly, although these applications will be sent to your ExpertTal dashboard. ExpertTal reserves the right to turn on or enable ExpertTal Chat for select Employers or Job Listings, in its sole discretion, and to notify Job Seekers that ExpertTal Chat is available for a particular job or Employer. If you are an Employer and do not wish to use ExpertTal Chat, you may turn it off by visiting your ExpertTal Chat dashboard. ExpertTal may, in its sole discretion, turn off or disable ExpertTal Chat for any Employer or Job Seeker at any time without prior notice. Please note that if you are using ExpertTal Chat to communicate with an employer, ExpertTal will deliver your messages as instructed by the employer.

You authorize ExpertTal to claim such Company Page for you on your behalf, which will be marked as a “Claimed Profile” and allows you to edit and add information to the Company Page. Company Pages allow User Content to be posted by individuals that may not be affiliated with the Company that owns the Company Page, including but not limited to the answers to Q&A questions on Company Pages. Additionally, ExpertTal may include all of your Job Ads posted on the Site on your Company Page, including but not limited to those posted directly on ExpertTal as well as those indexed by ExpertTal.
