But to start, here are a few quick notes on what FlexJobs is and how we interact with our members. At the core of them all, it's important to understand that FlexJobs is a membership service provider. By joining FlexJobs as a member, you have access to a wide variety of premium online resources to help you find and be prepared for remote and flexible job opportunities. These include, but aren't limited to:
● Our Job Specialist, Research, and Data Entry teams are screening thousands of jobs daily based on continuously updated criteria provided by our current members for both quality and match.
● Educational/development opportunities including career coaching Q&As, webinars with top hiring companies, online remote/flexible work courses, virtual job fairs, educational opportunities, expert skills tests, online soft skills courses, job search checklists, thousands of articles, and more.
● Only jobs that align with the direction provided by our members and/or meet FlexJobs’ requirements for quality and fit are curated and added to the platform.
● Additional support for our members includes top-notch client support (by phone or online) and pre-negotiated discounts on related vetted products and services.
Below is a quick glance at some of the more important guidelines that apply to your use of the FlexJobs Site:
● Whether you are a Job Seeker, Employer, or just passing through, we expect you to abide by a high standard of professional and acceptable behavior. You must also comply with applicable law, including local, state, and federal employment and discrimination laws.
● Job Seekers agree to use all resources on the FlexJobs Site solely for personal, individual noncommercial use and agree not to share, sell, distribute or disclose to any third party or on any other website any FlexJobs content, which includes job listings.
● Employers interested in and requesting Membership to use the FlexJobs service will be invited to do so at the sole discretion of FlexJobs.
● Employers must be legitimate, have a well-established and positive reputation, and be hiring for jobs that offer some kind of work flexibility (remote options, freelance schedule, part-time, alternative, or flexible schedule). An Employer that does not satisfy our guidelines, particularly if there is questionable or scam-related behavior, will not be (or continue to be) approved for Membership.
● Employer accounts can only be created by the appropriate HR Manager/Executive/Recruiter from within and approved by the Employer organization. Independent Representatives are not permitted to post jobs on behalf of an Employer organization.
● If Membership is approved, when posting jobs or contacting candidates, Employers must be hiring for current employment opportunities that include a flexible work element such as a remote work option, freelance contract, or a part-time, flexible, or alternative schedule.
● Employers are explicitly prohibited from soliciting potentially invasive personal or financial information from candidates in the database as part of the job application/advertisement process, such as social security, credit card, or bank account numbers.
● Business opportunities, including any job requiring an investment or payment to get started, are not permitted on FlexJobs.
● Commission-Only jobs are not permitted to be posted on the FlexJobs Site.

You have the choice to cancel your account, so it doesn't renew, which you can do at any time from within your logged in account under Account Settings (read more on cancellation below in section 19).

However, FlexJobs may review and remove any User Content that, in its sole judgment, violates these Terms, violates applicable laws, rules, or regulations, is abusive, disruptive, offensive, or illegal, or violates the rights of, or harms, or threatens the safety of, FlexJobs or its Users. FlexJobs reserves the right to expel Users and prevent their further access to FlexJobs and/or use of FlexJobs services for violating these Terms. FlexJobs may take any action with respect to User Content that it deems necessary or appropriate in its sole discretion if it believes that such User Content could create liability for FlexJobs, damage FlexJobs' brand or public image, or cause FlexJobs to lose (in whole or in part) the services of its ISPs or other suppliers.

22. FlexJobs and all of its affiliated companies respect the intellectual property of others, and we ask our Users and content partners to do the same. The unauthorized posting, reproduction, copying, distribution, modification, public display, or public performance of copyrighted works constitutes infringement of the copyright owner's rights. As a condition to your use of FlexJobs, you agree not to use FlexJobs to infringe the intellectual property rights of others in any way. We will terminate the accounts of any FlexJobs Users, and block access to FlexJobs of any Users who infringe the copyright, or other intellectual property rights of others. We reserve the right to take these actions at any time, in our sole discretion, with or without notice, and without any liability to you.
23. Job Postings: Employers submit job postings to FlexJobs for consideration in its job database, and FlexJobs' team researches job listings for consideration to be added to its job database. In either case, every job will be reviewed to ensure it meets the quality and relevancy criteria. FlexJobs reserves the right to reject job postings in our sole discretion. Additionally, FlexJobs is used by candidates to post Resume Profiles (and related application materials) and to apply for jobs. FlexJobs is not to be considered an Employer, a headhunter, a staffing agency, or in any similar capacity with respect to the use of our Site or the services we provide. Accordingly, FlexJobs shall not be responsible for any employment decisions, for whatever reason made by any entity posting jobs on our Site. While we take extensive efforts to screen and censor the listings offered in the interest of preventing scams, abuse, and/or illegal activity, we are not responsible for the actual interactions or negotiations between potential Employers and candidates, nor for confirming or controlling the quality, accuracy, or legality of information provided by Users (which include candidates and Employers) on the Website.
24. FlexJobs may take any action with respect to User Content that it deems necessary or appropriate in its sole discretion if it believes that such Content could create liability for FlexJobs, damage FlexJobs' brand or public image, or cause FlexJobs to lose (in whole or in part) the services of its ISPs or other suppliers. While FlexJobs reserves the right in its sole discretion to remove User Content, job postings, resumes, or other material from FlexJobs from time to time, FlexJobs does not assume any obligation to do so and disclaims any liability for failing to take any such action.
25. Because User authentication on the Internet is difficult, FlexJobs 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 FlexJobs, in the event that you have a dispute with one or more Users, you release FlexJobs (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 your interactions with other Users and any such disputes that may result from those interactions.
26. 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."
27. FlexJobs may contain inaccuracies or typographical errors. FlexJobs makes no representations about the accuracy, reliability, completeness, or timeliness of any FlexJobs content. The use of all FlexJobs content is at your own risk. Changes are periodically made to FlexJobs and may be made at any time. You acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for the form, content, and accuracy of any resume or material contained therein placed by you on FlexJobs.
