Hiredd! may also provide an employer with code for a Conversion Tracker to place on its website that pings the job seeker web beacon and tracks whenever a job seeker has applied to a job on that employer’s website. This Conversion Tracker will attribute an application to Hiredd! any time the job seeker started their search on Hiredd!, despite any intervening activity. Hiredd! does not and cannot collect any of the job seeker’s personally identifiable information and does not have access to the cookies in the employer’s domain. The Conversion Tracker is simply a counter that notifies Hiredd! that a job seeker has applied. If a jobseeker has disabled the web beacon, the Conversion Tracker will have no functionality.
Hiredd! uses the AdWords and Remarketing Lists features of Google Analytics for Display Advertisers. Hiredd! and Google use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together to inform, optimize, and serve ads based on your past visits to our Website. This means that vendors including Google will display Hiredd! promotional material on other sites you visit across the Internet.
You may opt-out of Google Analytics for Display Advertisers including AdWords and opt-out of customized Google Display Network ads by visiting the Google Ads Preferences Manager.

2. Information Collected
In addition, as part of the standard operation of the Site, Hiredd! may automatically collect and analyze information from your computer or mobile device, including, but not limited to, your browser type, operating system, IP address and the domain name from which you accessed the Site, and if you are accessing our Site with your mobile device, the type of mobile device. In addition, we may automatically record and analyze actions taken on the Site including, but not limited to, date and times of use, clicks, page views, the amount of time you spend on each page, and search queries. Hiredd! reserves the right to match your IP address (or any other information) with other information about you in any way permitted by applicable law. Hiredd! will store this information on its equipment or the equipment of third parties that Hiredd! has a relationship with for that purpose. If you create an Hiredd! account, information may be collected under your account email address.
If you access or use the Site on your mobile telephone or other mobile device, including tablets, we collect mobile device identifiers, including MAC Address, and IP Address. Hiredd! may create and assign to your device an identifier that is similar to an account number. We may collect the name you have associated with your device, device type, telephone number, country, and any other information you choose to provide, such as user name, geolocation or email address.
If you are an Employer, Hiredd! may request that you provide certain personal information to Hiredd! in order to verify your account. This information includes, but is not limited to your Federal Employer Identification Number (EIN), Business Registration information, or a utility bill. This information will be used for internal purposes only, subject to any request by law enforcement or a court order.
3. Limitation of Use or Disclosure of Personal Data
When a Job Seeker deletes an account, the Job Seeker will no longer have access to any of the data which we provided under that account name, including but not limited to, search history, job search preferences, saved jobs, jobs the Job Seeker has applied to, job alerts, resume, and any other data associated with the account. If the Job Seeker uses the same email address to set up a new account, this data will not become available to the Job Seeker again. Hiredd! reserves the right to keep any materials in a deleted account as necessary to preserve and protect its rights as allowed by law (for example, to preserve records of a dispute) or to comply with its obligations under local law (for example, to keep an email address). A deleted account does not mean that all of the data is expunged from the Hiredd! systems, although it will not be readily available under the Job Seeker’s original account name. When the Job Seeker presses the delete account button on the dashboard, Hiredd! will begin to process that instruction within 24 hours and will have completed the operation within 40 days.
Employers may disable an account, however Hiredd! must preserve business records pertaining to that account to comply with its obligations under law. If a Job Seeker wants to delete a job application performed on Hiredd!’s site, they will need to contact the prospective Employer directly to request deletion of their application. When a Job Seeker creates a resume on Hiredd!, they are given the option to make their resume public or private. Public resumes are available to anyone with access to Hiredd!’s resume search application. Private resumes are only made available to those whom the Job Seeker has initiated an application or provided their resume. For job applications which you, the Job Seeker submit through Hiredd! (including the use of an Hiredd! Apply button) to an employer, (with related materials submitted), please note: 1) that your applications and materials may be controlled by an employer, 2) we may direct you to that employer for personal data deletion requests, and 3) Hiredd! depends on the employer or the employer’s agent to provide Hiredd! with the correct destination for all applications. In the event that the electronic destination provided to Hiredd! is incorrect, your application materials will not be sent to the intended recipient of the application. Hiredd! has no liability for such applications. If you do not wish to send your application materials in this manner, you should send them directly to the employer.
4. Uses and Disclosures of Information
Hiredd! may also share such information with third parties (including operators of third-party websites and/or social networking sites) in order to show you targeted advertisements and other content that has been customized for you.
We may use a variety of methods to detect and address anomalous activity and screen content to prevent abuse such as spam. These efforts may on occasion result in a temporary or permanent suspension or termination of some functions for some users. Hiredd! provides two-way message proxy and relay services to the users of our Hiredd! products, including: Hiredd! Resume, Hiredd! Apply, and Post a Job. By utilizing this Hiredd! relay function in connection with any of the aforementioned products, you acknowledge that you are asking Hiredd! to send these messages on your behalf. We monitor, review, store and analyze your content (including your resumes, cover letters, applications, messages, responses, offer letters and other materials) that you send, store or receive, including via automated means and otherwise, for data analysis, quality control, and to refine the Site or any other Hiredd! product or service (including to provide better search results and other listings for job seekers and employers, provide you with personally relevant product features, and to prevent and block fraud and spam or reduce unwanted mail). When communicating through Hiredd!’s relay system, you will see an email address with an @hiredd.in or @hireddmail.com ending. You retain no ownership rights in these email addresses, which are specific to Employers’ Job Listings, but owned by Hiredd!. Hiredd!’s relay system will show the name associated with your account or job application in the “To:” or “From:” field. Please note that since these message proxy and relay services depend on the functionality of third party providers, there may be technical delays on the part of those email service providers. If you share the Hiredd!-owned email address with someone other than yourself, and they send an email to this email address, Hiredd! reserves the right to verify and confirm the identity of the sender of that email with the Employer associated with that email address’ Job Listing. Hiredd! reserves the right to drop messages from our relay system that Hiredd! determines do not adhere to Site Rules or any of the terms of this agreement.
Any information shared by you with Hiredd! may be shared with or transferred to any Hiredd! affiliated entity (including those located outside the European Union), no matter where located, for the purpose of providing you services and improving the Site. By using the Site, you consent to this transfer and acknowledge that the services provided to you and the functionality of the Site could not be provided without such a transfer. If you do not wish your information to be transferred in this way you should not use this Site.
Transfer of Data to Third Parties
We may use other companies, including affiliates and third parties, to perform services in connection with our operations, and to improve the Site and our other products and services. These third parties may include (but are not limited to) service providers and vendors.
5. Contact and Resume Information
When you give Hiredd! contact information (such as your name and email address) and demographic information, you agree that Hiredd! may utilize this information as set forth herein. You agree that Hiredd! may, as part of its services to you, communicate with you, or initiate communication with you on behalf of a third party, through your Hiredd! account or through other means such as email, telephone (including mobile phone), or postal mail, including through the use of contact information that you may provide to Hiredd! or that Hiredd! may otherwise obtain from third-party resources. If and to the extent permitted by applicable law, Hiredd! or its designated third-party partners may also use your contact information to (i) send you job alerts; (ii) create an account; and (iii) send you information about Hiredd!, including promotional materials. Hiredd! may use demographic and/or profile data to tailor your experience on the Site, show you content that Hiredd! thinks you may be interested in, and display content according to your preferences. Your information, including Personal Information, gets placed on the Site when you upload or edit a resume. To the extent you upload a resume or edit it, and subject to your Privacy Settings, you are making the resume, your name and other Personal Information that you place on your resume available to third parties who may be interested in you as an employee (and who may forward your resume and Personal Information to other third parties), to Job Seekers who may want to contact you, to search engines, or to the general public by posting your Personal Information on the internet.
You acknowledge that Hiredd! may determine whether the words of your resume or any other individuals’ resume match the words of certain job descriptions, and vice versa, in order to improve the Site or any other Hiredd! product or service (including by displaying or otherwise making available potentially relevant job descriptions and resumes to job seekers and employers). If you post a public resume, this may be crawled by, and displayed through, search engines when someone searches for your name. This means that third parties can view the Personal Information contained in your resume and you may receive unsolicited contact from parties unaffiliated with Hiredd! and for whom Hiredd! has no responsibility. If you do not want your Personal Information posted on the Site, you should not upload it. You may opt out of this feature on a going forward basis by editing your Privacy Settings; however, Hiredd! does not warrant how often third-party search engines will update their caches, which may continue to contain your resume information. Hiredd! reserves the right to charge third parties a fee for accessing your information, including Personal Information, as part of Hiredd!’s services. At your direction, Hiredd! may also send your resume to third parties if you choose to apply for a job listing.
6. Additional Uses and Disclosures of Non-Personal Information
Hiredd! seeks to use reasonable security measures to help protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the Personal Information under Hiredd!’s control. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. In addition, please note that emails, messages sent via your web browser, and other similar means of communication with other users, are not encrypted. We strongly advise you not to communicate any confidential or sensitive information through these means. Therefore, while we strive to protect your information, we cannot guarantee its security. Please also be aware that we may use third-party cloud service providers that provide hosting, data storage and other services pursuant to standard terms and conditions that may be nonnegotiable; these service providers have informed us or the general public that they apply security measures they consider adequate for the protection of information within their system, or they have a general reputation for applying such measures. However, we will not be liable (to the fullest extent permitted by law) for any damages that may result from the misuse of any information, including Personal Information, by these companies. Please see paragraph 11 for liabilities pertaining to the transfer of personal data for EU Residents.
9. Links to Third-Party Sites
The Site may make available links to other websites. When you click on such links, you may leave our Site. The Site may also make available Company Pages, which may contain information provided by third-party Employers. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE INFORMATION COLLECTION, USE, DISCLOSURE OR OTHER PRIVACY PRACTICES OF ANY THIRD PARTY, INCLUDING OUR AFFILIATES, THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS, ANY EMPLOYERS (INCLUDING ANY EMPLOYER THAT PROVIDES A COMPANY PAGE), ANY THIRD-PARTY SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM, ANY THIRD PARTY MAKING AVAILABLE THE DEVICES OR OPERATING SYSTEMS FOR WHICH THE SITE IS AVAILABLE, AND ANY THIRD PARTY OPERATING ANY WEBSITE TO WHICH THE SITE CONTAINS A LINK. YOU MAY HAVE RIGHTS DIRECTLY ENFORCEABLE AGAINST THESE THIRD PARTIES SO YOU SHOULD CONSIDER THEIR PRIVACY POLICIES TO LEARN MORE.
10. Acquisitions and Other Reorganizations
11. Personal Data for EU Residents
In the context of an onward transfer of data to a third party, a Privacy Shield organization has responsibility for the processing of personal information it receives under the Privacy Shield and subsequently transfers to a third party acting as an agent on its behalf. Hiredd! shall remain liable under the Principles if its agent processes such personal information in a manner inconsistent with the Principles, unless Hiredd! proves that it is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.
Residents of the European Economic Area have a right of access to their data. Job Seekers are able to access and update their resume data through the resume portion of Hiredd!’s site. If you wish Hiredd! to access and edit such data on your behalf, please send a certified letter to the above address with a copy of your passport or national identity card (for identity verification purposes) and the same will be provided to you. There may be a charge for such a request (which will not be higher than applicable law permits). European Economic Area and Switzerland residents also have a right, if their personal data is inaccurate, of rectification, erasure or blocking of such inaccurate personal data. You may edit your resume free of charge (if there is an inaccuracy or otherwise), by following procedures set forth on the Site.

Hiredd! General Terms of Service
Last Updated: March 16, 2017
A. The following terms and conditions apply to all Job Seekers, Employers, Publishers and other users who access or use the Site, or otherwise indicate their acceptance to this Agreement.
1. Job Listings
Hiredd! may make available certain job listings and other job-related contents, including links to third-party websites (such listings and other contents, (“Job Listings” or “Job Ads”), through Hiredd!’s search results or otherwise through the Site. Job Listings are created and provided by third parties over whom Hiredd! exercises no control; you acknowledge and understand that we have no control over Job Listings. Except for certain sponsored, featured or paid placements, the Job Listings contained on, or linked from, the Site are indexed or posted in an automated manner. Hiredd! does not have any obligation to screen any Job Listing, or to include any Job Listing in its search results or other listings, and may exclude or remove any Job Listing 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. Hiredd! assumes no responsibility, and disclaims all liability, for the content, accuracy, completeness, legality, reliability, or availability of any Job Listing. You agree that Hiredd! may also provide search options to narrow down Job Listing search results by job type (i.e. full-time, part-time, etc.), and such job types are created independently and entirely by Hiredd!, and are not a direct reflection of the actual Job Listing.
1(c) Regardless of whether you are an Employer or Job Seeker, when you send, store or receive materials (including Job Listings, resumes, and messages) through or using the Site, Hiredd! may, for example, use such materials for data analysis, quality control, or to refine the Site or any other Hiredd! product or service (including to provide better search results and other listings for Job Seekers and Employers), whether via automated means or otherwise. When you send, store or receive materials through or using the Site, Hiredd! may also inform a Job Seeker that an Employer has taken an action with regards to a Job Seeker’s application such as opening the application, viewing the application and making a decision with regards to the application, and you hereby consent to Hiredd! taking such actions. Hiredd! assumes no responsibility, and disclaims all liability, for the content, accuracy, completeness, legality, reliability, or availability of any job listing, career site, 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 Hiredd! to do so. Hiredd! does not promise to correct any inaccuracy.
1(d) Regardless of whether you are an Employer or Job Seeker, Hiredd! may use application materials (including resumes and responses to screener questions) to determine whether the words of any Job Seeker’s resume and answers to screener questions match the words of a Job Listing, and vice-versa. Regardless of whether you are an Employer or Job Seeker, you agree and consent that Hiredd! may differentiate those matching resumes and screener questions from those that do not match, and presenting them to Employers as matches or not matches. Hiredd! may also use such information in order to improve the Site or any other Hiredd! 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, Hiredd! may provide certain categories of information to you for informational purposes only. For example, Hiredd! 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 Hiredd! 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 Hiredd! Ads Program, please note that this is not the information you are purchasing from Hiredd! and you are not charged per apply. Hiredd! 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 Hiredd!. These figures are given to Hiredd! users for the purpose of generalized comparison only. Minimum wage may differ by jurisdiction and you should consult the employer for actual salary figures.
2. External Sites
The Site contains links to other sites on the Internet which are owned and/or operated by third-party vendors and other third parties (the “External Sites”). You acknowledge that Hiredd! is not responsible or liable for any such third parties or for the availability of, or the materials located on or through, any External Sites. You should contact the site administrator or webmaster for the applicable External Site if you have any concerns regarding such links or the materials located on an External Site.
In addition, Hiredd! may provide you with links to certain third party sites that offer you services for your use or benefit. We may stop offering any such third party sites or services at any time. If you choose to use such third party sites or services, you enter into an agreement with such third party alone at your own risk. When entering into an agreement with such parties, you are giving them your data directly and your rights and their obligations are determined by their privacy policies and terms of service. We are not responsible for any content or services provided these third parties, and disclaim all liability from anything that may occur when you utilize such third parties. We are additionally not responsible for any payment that may be asked of you by such third party. You will be notified on the site that these are third party sites and services, and not Hiredd!.
For example, Hiredd! may provide Employers with access to a third party site Interviewed.com, which allows Employers to send Job Seekers certain skills assessment tests. Hiredd! does not review these skills assessment tests, and any Employer’s use of them and Interviewed.com is solely at its own risk. Additionally, Hiredd! does not grade the results of the skills assessment tests. However, an Employer may choose to store the results of a Job Seeker’s skills assessment test on Hiredd!. Hiredd! reserves the right to remove access to Interviewed.com for any Employer who, in Hiredd!’s sole discretion, abuses the third party service. Any Employer who uses this product shall indemnify Hiredd! for any and all claims arising out of its use of Interviewed.com.
3. Use of Site
Hiredd!’s Site is for your non-commercial use only. If you wish to make commercial use of the Site, or if you wish to purchase Hiredd! services that utilize the Site, you must have a prior written agreement with Hiredd! to do so, or have accepted Hiredd!’s online terms of service. Please contact us for more information. We reserve the right at all times (but will not have any obligation) to terminate users, and reclaim usernames or URLs, for any reason.
4. User Content
Some parts of the Site, such as message boards and forums, may allow users to post Job Listings, resumes, information, text, images, audio, video, messages, and other materials (any such materials that a user submits, posts, displays, or otherwise makes available on or through the Site is referred to herein as “User Content”). Such functionality is designed to help users obtain career and company information, facilitate communication, discuss ways to make career decisions, and to let users know of jobs. User Content is provided by third-party contributors, many of whom may use anonymous screen names. User Content may be inaccurate, incomplete, misleading or deceptive. For example, the Site hosts Company Pages, which allow User Content to be posted by individuals that may not be affiliated with the Company who owns the Company Page, including but not limited to the answers to Q&A questions on Company Pages. Hiredd! does not endorse and is not responsible for any User Content, including any opinion, advice, information, or statement contained therein. You acknowledge that by accessing the Site, you may come into contact with content (including User Content) that you find harmful, offensive, threatening, indecent or objectionable, including, but not limited to, explicit language and other potentially offensive material, and you acknowledge that Hiredd! shall have no liability with respect to such content.
You must not post any User Content that is unlawful, fraudulent, discriminatory, threatening, abusive, libelous, defamatory, obscene or otherwise objectionable, or that contains sexual, ethnic, racial or other discriminating slurs, or that contains no relevant or constructive content. You must also not post any User Content that contains proprietary information, trade secrets, confidential information, advertisements, solicitations, chain letters, pyramid schemes, investment opportunities, or other unsolicited commercial communication (except as otherwise expressly permitted by us in writing), or encourages or causes spamming or flooding.
You are prohibited from posting any User Content containing official identification information (whether your own or of another person), such as social security number, passport number, national identification number, insurance number, driver’s license number, immigration number, or any other similar number, code, or identifier. Posting such identification information may lead to identity theft and other adverse consequences. Hiredd! may remove any such identification information, but does not undertake any obligation to do so, and has no responsibility and disclaims all liability for any posting of such identification information. Hiredd! reserves the right to change the display of resume on its Site, including, but not limited to, hiding fields, rearranging its format, and changing visual elements.
Although Hiredd! has no obligation to do so, Hiredd! may monitor User Content, and reserves the right to delete any User Content or portion thereof that, in Hiredd!’s sole discretion, violates the above rules, including any User Content that is unrelated to the specific portion of the Site on which it is posted, or that is an advertisement, recruiting or other commercial message, or that Hiredd! deems in its sole discretion to be inappropriate. If you believe that any User Content violates this Agreement or our policies, please contact Hiredd! immediately so that we may have the opportunity to consider its removal. For clarity, Hiredd! does not have any obligation to remove any User Content, and the interpretation of whether any User Content violates any Hiredd! policy will always remain within the sole discretion of Hiredd!.
Hiredd! reserves the right to disclose all User Content and other relevant information, and the circumstances surrounding their transmission, to any third party in connection with operating the Site; to protect itself, its affiliates, its partners and its visitors; and to comply with legal obligations or governmental requests. This means, for example, that Hiredd! may honor subpoenas, search warrants, law enforcement or court-mandated requests to reveal a user’s electronic address and identity, or other properly requested information. As an Employer, when you post a Job Listing on Hiredd! that you choose to list as confidential, your identity may be discoverable by request from the government or law enforcement.
Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Hiredd! reserves the right (but is under no obligation) to remove any Job Listing that directly or indirectly discriminates against Job Seekers. Direct discrimination means, for example, that a Job Listing specifically makes clear that only Job Seekers matching a certain criteria are wanted, thereby excluding others because of, for example, their gender, race, age or disability. Indirect discrimination means, for example, that a Job Listing implicitly excludes certain classes of Job Seekers by making it impossible for them to qualify for the job requirements. You understand and agree that it is your responsibility to refrain from posting any Job Listing that directly or indirectly discriminate against Job Seekers or otherwise violate applicable law.
Please note: Section 230 of the U.S. Communications Decency Act provides that:
(1) Treatment of publisher or speaker
No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider.
(2) Civil liability
No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be held liable on account of-
(A) any action voluntarily taken in good faith to restrict access to or availability of material that the provider or user considers to be obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy, excessively violent, harassing, or otherwise objectionable, whether or not such material is constitutionally protected; or
(B) any action taken to enable or make available to information content providers or others the technical means to restrict access to material described in paragraph (1).

You agree to pay for all royalties, fees, damages, and any other monies owed to any person or entity by reason of such User Content.

If you wish to request to revoke the license granted by you in this Section for any such User Content, please send a certified letter of request to the postal address listed above with a copy of your passport or national identity card (for identity verification purposes) and request removal of such User Content. Your certified letter of request must include (a) the signature of the applicable rights holder for such User Content or a person authorized to act on behalf of the rights holder; (b) identification of the User Content for which the license is to be revoked, and information reasonably sufficient to allow Hiredd! to locate and remove such User Content on the Site; (c) your name, address, telephone number, and email address; (d) a statement that you have a good faith belief that you are the rights holder or authorized by the rights holder to revoke the license for the designated User Content; and (e) a statement that the information in the request is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are the rights holder or are authorized to act on behalf of the rights holder with respect to such User Content. There may be a charge for answering and executing such a request; please contact Hiredd! for more details.
At your discretion, you may provide feedback and related materials to Hiredd! concerning the functionality and performance of the Site from time to time, including, without limitation, identifying potential errors, improvements, modifications, bug fixes, or enhancements (“Feedback”).

By providing any Feedback, you agree that your provision of such Feedback is gratuitous, unsolicited and without restriction, and will not place Hiredd! under any fiduciary, confidentiality or other obligation, and that we are free to use such Feedback without any additional compensation to you, and free to disclose such Feedback on a non-confidential basis or otherwise to anyone. You further acknowledge that, by accepting any Feedback, Hiredd! does not waive any rights to use similar or related ideas previously known to Hiredd!, or developed by its employees, or obtained from sources other than you.

7. Registration; Contact Information

By registering for an Hiredd! account, you agree to receive mandatory email updates regarding anomalous activity to your Hiredd! account. If you attempt to send an email from a name or email address that is not true, accurate, current or complete, we reserve the right to drop such email, and attempting to send such email is a violation of our terms. A Linked Account is created when the primary account owner of an Employer account invites other users to the same account. When using a Linked Account, all users within the same Linked Account have access to the communications and actions of all other users within the Linked Account, and you consent to such access.
We reserve the right at all times (but will not have an obligation) to terminate users or to reclaim usernames or URLs.
You agree that Hiredd! may, as part of its services to you, communicate with you, or initiate communication with you on behalf of a third party, through your Hiredd! account or through other means such as email, telephone (including mobile phone), or postal mail, including through the use of contact information that you may provide to Hiredd! or that Hiredd! may otherwise obtain from third-party sources.

10. Claims of Infringement
U.S. Copyright Infringement. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA“) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that materials hosted by Hiredd! infringe your copyright, you (or your agent) may send us a notice requesting that the material be removed, or access to it blocked. The notice must include the following information as required by 17 USC. § 512(c)(3)(A): (a) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (b) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed (or if multiple copyrighted works located on the site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works); (c) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow Hiredd! to locate the material on the site; (d) the name, address, telephone number, and email address (if available) of the complaining party; (e) a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and (f) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed. If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send Hiredd! a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.loc.gov/copyright/ for details. Notices and counter-notices with respect to the Site should be sent in writing to Hiredd! Copyright Notice, 6433 Champion Grandview Way, Building 1, Austin, TX, 78750, USA (copyright @ Hiredd!.com) (remove spaces when sending email). We suggest that you consult your legal advisor before filing a notice or counter-notice. Also, be aware that there are penalties for false claims under the DMCA.
Other Claims of Infringement. For claims of infringement that do not involve a U.S. copyright, please contact us via our Site contact form.
