8. Additional Services, Resume Posting Services, Job Alerts.
A. Resume Posting
We provide resume and curriculum vitae building services and tools. In addition, our “Resume Posting Services” may facilitate the posting of your resume or a career profile on various third-party career sites. If you sign up for our Resume Posting Services, you agree that we will use proprietary web-based information gathering tools to create a career profile for you. You further agree that the wording and interpretation of your information for purposes of Resume Posting Services will be in our sole discretion and we will not be liable for any decisions to include, not include or phrase information about you as part of the Resume Posting Services. You understand, and consent to, that prior to posting of your career profile or resume on a third-party career site, Provider will be accepting terms and conditions of use and privacy policies, and other policies that it might be prompted to accept, on these third-party career sites. By using our Resume Posting Services you’re accepting full and total responsibility for the actions Provider performs on your behalf and at your request as if you had performed those actions yourself. You further acknowledge and agree that you will take full responsibility and are personally liable for any consequences arising from your use of the Resume Posting Services.
Provider may also offer job posting and resume submission features as part of the Service in certain locations or jurisdictions. These features may be used only by individuals seeking employment and/or career information. In the same vein, certain Provider services may only be used by employers seeking employees.
Depending on your location or jurisdiction, Provider may provide job alerts or may use third parties and automated search engines to provide job alerts, matching employment opportunities found on third-party job searching sites with your resume or career profile, job search requests submitted by you, and/or other usage data relating to your use of the Service. Provider tries to match the information available to ensure employment opportunities presented to you in job alerts and match the type of career opportunities desired by you but Provider makes no guarantee that you will receive career opportunities or the job alert leads you desire.
B. Resume Parsing
Provider may also offer additional services that may help you in your application process, such as tracking your resume and facilitating the transfer and interpretation of your resume data by the third-parties involved in your application process (“Resume Parsing”). Upon downloading your resume, you agree that Provider may include a metadata and an identifier into your resume and share it with third-parties such as parsing companies, applicant tracking systems (ATS), and employers for the purpose of facilitating your application process and allowing such third parties, through technology, capture your data, process it, and deliver it to the prospective employer to whom you have submitted a job application.
To see if the link on you resume has been clicked, please go to your Resume Analytics pannel in your Account. Your Resume Analytics pannel may give you data regarding your Resume Parsing activities, which may include (when available) the number of times your resume has been ‘parsed’, dates, and location. Note that all of this information may not always be available. Due to privacy, we are not able to give you the name of the person, entity or third party who is parsing your resume. We do not guarantee the accuracy of the information on your Resume Analytics pannel, nor the time or the location displayed on your Resume Analytics pannel, as some people may be using blockers or VPNs to avoid tracking technologies such as the one in your Resume Parsing service. Each time the third party performs a parsing function over your resume, such activity will be automatically featured on the Resume Analytics pannel and will show the user with the total number of parsing activities for your unique downloaded resume, which carries a specific document id. Your resume may be parsed multiple times within a single application process. Therefore, note that the number of parsing activities in your Resume Analytics pannel may be triggered by the same third party and may not be indicative that different third-parties or employers have parsed or viewed your resume. You may download multiple resumes to capture a unique ID on each one enabling you to track the activities of each of such resumes.
We may also enable a notification system to notify you when your resume has been parsed, which we may do by email or text, should such service become available. Such notifications shall be made (when available) under the terms and conditions contained herein applicable to notifications to our subscribers. You acknowledge that the actual time between a parsing activity over your resume and the time the notification is sent to you depends on a number of factors, including your wireless service and coverage within the area in which you are located at that time, and that such notices may be delayed, experience delivery failures, or face other transmission problems. Email notices may be affected by Internet outages and other problems impacting the transmission and receipt of email messages. Additionally, and if you choose to download a word version of your resume, we will be able to notify you through the Resume Insight page each time such document is opened. This security functionality allows you to not only make sure you can track how many times your word document has been opened, but also from where. Note this information may not always be accurate as some people may be using blockers or VPNs to avoid tracking technologies such as the one in your Resume Parsing service.
You may always opt-out of the Resume Parsing services and from receiving these notifications. To opt-out please visit your Resume Analytics pannel or contact customer service. The Provider makes no guarantee that you will receive career opportunities or that the notices of Resume Parsing services will meet your requirements.
Please remember that the Resume Parsing services will only become available if you download the resume from this site and share your resume with third parties as part of your application process. The Resume Parsing service and any corresponding notice is not triggered by Provider and is only triggered upon your direct sharing of your resume with third-parties that are enabled with the parsing technology necessary to process the Resume Parsing services. That said, note that not all employers nor ATS are equipped with Bold’s proprietary technology and therefore, you will only receive notice only from those employers and ATS that have the Resume Parsing technology integrated in their systems. Our Resume Parsing technology has the ability to share your resume data with 100% accuracy. However, this 100% accuracy will be dependent on the capabilities of the technology that the third-party has enabled in their systems to upload and read your resume. Therefore, Provider cannot guarantee that these third-parties receiving your resume will have the capabilities necessary to enable a 100% accuracy when processing your resume. By sharing your resume with third parties, you do so at your own risk.
C. Digital Resume and public Resume Database
1. Digital Resume
Provider may offer “Digital Resume Services”. The Digital Resume Services will allow you to create an online digital profile using either your existing resume data or by creating a digital profile from scratch using our proprietary builder (“Digital Resume”) which, once published, will be available online through a unique web address and part of our online public Digital Resume database. If you sign up for our Digital Resume Services, you agree that we will use the information you provide us to create your Digitall Resume, which once you agree to publish it, will be publicly available. Third parties may get access to your Digital Resume by multiple routes, either by your direct sharing of your Digital Resume link, by performing searches in publicly available search engines, such as Google, Bing, or through our publicly available resume database The system will create distinctive and unique Digital Resume IDs that will allow you to identify if someone has looked at the Digital Resume associated with such link. To see if your Digital Resume has been viewed, please go to your Online Resume Analytics page in your Account.
When you create your Digital Resume you also agree to have your data transferred to any of our affiliate websites. This will enable us to provide you with our services and, as part of it, make your profile more visible. Visit your Privacy Settings page at any time to change your privacy preferences.
Your Digital Resume Analytics pannel will give you all the data regarding your Digital Resume, which may include (when available) the number of visits, visit dates, location of the visitor, source, and a 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 are not 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 Analytics pannel, 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. Also, each time the third party visits your Digital Resume, the visit will be automatically featured on the Digital Resume Analytics pannel and will provide user with the total number of visits grouped based on the following characteristics: source, country, city, and timestamp. If the “Include your Digital Resume link” option is enabled for a specific resume, the visits that get attributed to those links will be featured on the Digital Resume Analytics pannel along with the Digital Resume unique ID they came from. By default, when the Digital Resume gets published you will be given a web address with a unique identifier that will allow us to track and gather the above data. However, and although we do our best efforts to provide you with accurate information, we do not guarantee the accuracy of any of the above tracking data or statistics displayed on your Digital Resume Analytics pannel.
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 link 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 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 (“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. The Provider is not responsible for any messages, or hyperlinks embedded in messages obtained from the Sender. Under no circumstances will Provider be liable for any loss or damage caused by your reliance on the information from the Sender or your communication with the Sender. The Provider makes no effort to review any contact request from the Sender for any purpose, including accuracy, legality or non-infringement.
As part of creating your Digital Resume, you may be offered an option to be featured on other Digital Resumes that share some of the same qualifications, job experience, or titles “Similar Profiles”.

2. Resume Database
Provider may offer as part of the service a free publicly available searchable database to which anyone can have access. When you decide to publish a Digital Resume you will be automatically included as part of the database and your Digital Resume will be searchable by anyone unless you actively opt-out. We will not show your address, phone number, or email address unless you have agreed to make this information available. When you create a Digital Resume it will be available for others to see, copy and use that information. Provider is not obligated to make available any information on the Digital Resume and can remove it at any time without notice. You can change your privacy setting at any time by logging into your account and clicking on My Settings. Provider has no control over how third parties will use the information publicly visible on the database 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 that best match the words imputed on the search form. If you prefer to have your Digital Resume private please set your privacy preferences on your Settings page and we will remove your profile from all search bases.
To the extent permitted by applicable law in your jurisdiction, you agree to indemnify and hold harmless Provider and its officers, directors, employees, agents, distributors, and affiliates from and against any and all claims, demands, liabilities, costs or expenses, including reasonable legal fees, resulting from your use of Digital Resume and its inclusion on our public resume database (or Contact form if you are acting as a Sender).
Please note that the cancellation of your subscription will not result in the unpublishing of your Digital Resume. Your Digital Resume may be unpublished by deleting your Account. You can manage your Digital Resume by logging into your Account and entering the appropriate section. You are able to edit your Digital Resume content and design within the constraints of the feature as well as manually publish and unpublish your Digital Resume. Please note that with the Digital Resume unpublishing, the contact form feature, as well as the tracking feature, will be automatically disabled and your Digital Resume won’t be accessible to third parties. When you request that your Account be deleted, your Digital Resume will no longer be visible. However, once your information is disclosed on Digital Resume, it may have been already previously accessed, stored, and/or copied by others, and therefore, we are unable to delete the information from third-party’s systems. By sharing your Digital Resume with third parties, you do so at your own risk. Once your Digital Resume is published we have no control over your publicly available data.

Due to privacy purposes, you can deactivate the link to your resume manually at any time. The link will also expire once you deactivate or delete your Account. However, once you send a link of your resume, it may have been already previously accessed, stored, and/or copied by others, and therefore, we are unable to delete the information from their systems. By sending a link of your resume you do so at your own risk. If you are providing comments to the resume shared with you, thus you are acting as a Feedback Provider. As a Feedback Provider, you understand that you can use the link to the resume shared by one of our users solely for the purpose of providing comments on the content of the user’s resume.

Furthermore, you acknowledge that Provider has no obligation to pre-screen your comments. However, Provider reserves the right in its sole discretion to pre-screen, refuse, alter or remove any comment.

You confirm that no such input will be subject to any obligation, of confidence or otherwise, to you or any other person and that Provider shall not be liable for any use or disclosure of such input. We require that you do not provide any content that violates any law or that it may be considered to violate any law.
Once you complete the simulation, we will display to you a final score and summary based solely on your answers (hereinafter collectively the “summary”). The summary will be a result of an automatic interpretation of your answers. Provider does not make any representations or warranties as to the summary you receive. Your summary is illustrative and we cannot guarantee that it will reflect the same results in the real-life recruitment process. Under no circumstances will Provider be liable for any loss or damage caused by your reliance on the summary. The Provider makes no guarantee that the score or summary received will meet your requirements.

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.

The number of text notifications you will receive will depend on how many times you are contacted. Standard text message rates may apply.

9. Payments and Subscriptions.
If you purchase any services that Provider offers for a fee, either on a one-time or on a subscription basis, you agree that Provider’s third-party vendors may store your payment information. You also allow Provider, through such third-party vendors, to use your payment method on file to process your subscription recurring charges and to process un-scheduled purchase transactions made by you through the Site. You also agree to pay the applicable fees for the services you order (including, without limitation, periodic fees for monthly or annual subscriptions, or any additional administrative charge that may be applied) as they become due plus all related taxes, and to reimburse us for all collection costs and interest for any overdue amounts.
Any recurring charge will be fixed at the price agreed to at the time of purchase. The specific billing terms for the services you order will be described on the offer page on the Site. When you sign up for automatic or recurring billing, you will be again notified of the billing terms and how to stop recurring billing on your transaction receipt. By signing up for Provider services with recurring billing, you will be deemed to agree to those billing terms as described specifically on the Site. In the event that your payment method does not successfully process you authorize us to complete a partial payment of the available balance on your card. The remaining balance will be charged on a separate transaction either to the same card or any other card on file. You also authorize us to charge you a non-refundable administration fee of up to $2.50USD or foreign equivalent, for each failed payment or any partial authorization, in order to keep your subscription temporarily active until the full subscription fee can be processed successfully and your subscription renewed.
For un-scheduled purchases, such as individual resume downloads, prints or emails, when such purchases are available, you agree that the Provider will charge your payment method on file for each of such un-scheduled purchases, individually, at the time of purchase. Such individual transactions are final and therefore, if you want a new modified version of your downloaded, printed or emailed resume, it will require a separate purchase.
Provider offers certain premium services such as Resume Review, Resume Writing, Premium Career Report and Cover Letter Writing, which may not be included in the cost of Provider’s basic subscription services. Failure to pay for these premium services, if purchased, may result in the termination of your subscription. Also, trial offers may give you access to certain limited services and include one download, print or email only, with additional downloads, prints, or emails charged separately, during the trial period. Please read your trial offer carefully.
Depending on where you transact with us, the type of payment method used, and where your payment method was issued, your transaction may be subject to foreign exchange fees or differences in prices, because of exchange rates. Your transaction may also be subject to foreign currency exchange fees assessed by your bank or card issuer. Provider is not responsible for any foreign currency exchange fees or surcharges and will not make any compensation or reimbursement for charges imposed by your bank or card issuer. Provider does not support all payment methods, currencies or locations for payment. If the payment method you use with us, such as a credit card, reaches its expiration date and you do not edit your payment method information or cancel your Account or the applicable service, you authorize us to continue billing that payment method and you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts. Your obligation to pay fees continues through the subscription period until you cancel your subscription. All applicable taxes are calculated based on the billing information you provide us at the time of purchase.
Provider has the discretion to alter prices for services at any time, subject to the notification terms of Section 3 (Modifications).
You may cancel your subscription anytime by contacting our customer service department or by going to the online cancel page under My Accounts and My Settings. Provider will send an email with a cancellation number to confirm any cancellation request. If you do not receive this confirmation and still wish to cancel, please contact our customer service department directly for further assistance. Provider may issue a refund if notice of cancellation of your subscription is provided before the end of the trial period if a trial period is offered. Provider does not guarantee refunds after trials are expired.

23. 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.
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.
- 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.

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 email@example.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.
- EU Residents: You may have a right to of out-of-court settlement of certain disputes in accordance with Regulation (EU) No. 524/2013.
