Subscriber hereby acknowledges and agrees that all right, title and interest in and to the Veterans Sites are, and shall remain, vested solely in Veterans, and Subscriber shall not hold itself out as having any ownership or other rights with respect thereto, except as specifically granted hereunder.

Veterans Sites only act as venues for candidates to post Candidate Profiles, search for jobs, and/or obtain career information and advice, and for employers to post jobs and review the profiles of candidates who have applied for a position with such employer. Veterans is not involved in the actual transaction between employers and candidates or search firms and candidates. As a result, Veterans is under no legal obligation to ensure and has no control over the quality, safety or legality of the information posted, the truth, accuracy, or timeliness of the information, the ability of employers to offer job opportunities to candidates or the ability of candidates to fill job openings. Veterans may assist in the application process by emailing a resume, cover letter and supporting materials to an employer. While we have taken steps to ensure the accuracy of our job application process, Veterans assumes no liability for the quality, legality or accuracy of your resume, cover letter, or supporting materials or our assistance in helping you transmit any of this information to an employer, including but not limited to the receipt by the employer of your application materials.
By its very nature, other people’s information may be offensive, harmful or inaccurate, and in some cases will be mislabeled or deceptively labeled. The use of Veterans Sites, job information, career information, Candidate Profiles, and information received from employers and search firms is at Subscriber’s own risk. Subscriber acknowledges and agrees that he/she is solely responsible for the form, content and accuracy of any information placed by Subscriber on Veterans Sites. By posting information on Veterans Sites, Subscriber acknowledges that he/she is cognizant that there are risks, including but not limited to the risk of physical harm, of dealing with strangers, foreign nationals, underage persons or people acting under false pretenses. Subscriber assumes all risks associated with dealing with other users with whom he/she comes in contact through Veterans Sites. Because user authentication on the Internet is difficult, Veterans cannot and does not confirm that each user is who he, she, or it claims to be. Because Veterans does not and cannot be involved in user-to-user dealings or control the behavior of participants on Veterans Sites, in the event that Subscriber has a dispute with one or more users, Subscriber hereby releases Veterans (and its agents, employees, and/or affiliates) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential, 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. If Subscriber is a California resident, Subscriber waives California Civil Code Section 1542, which states: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.” Subscriber’s exclusive remedy and Veterans’s and/or its’ affiliates’ entire liability under this Agreement, if any, for any claim(s) for damages relating to Veterans Sites which are made against them individually or jointly, whether based in contract or negligence shall be limited to the aggregate amount of charges paid by Subscriber relative to the Veterans Sites subscription during the 12-month period immediately preceding the event giving rise to such claim(s).
