We will notify you of any changes that may materially change your rights or privacy. Jobs Connected, Inc. reserves the right to update and change these TERMS from time to time without notice. Any new features that augment, enhance, modify, or otherwise change the Services, including the release of new tools and resources, shall be subject to the TERMS. Continued use of the Service after any such changes shall constitute your consent to such changes. In certain cases, you may have a separate agreement with Jobs Connected, (for example if you are a hosting institution hosting events with us). In this case, the separate agreement will supersede this Terms of Service if there is any conflict between the two documents.
You understand that Jobs Connected, Inc. operates this Service to facilitate, through the Website, the direct, person-to-person introduction of bona fide Registrants (individuals registered for events on the Jobs Connected Service) seeking employment, educational opportunities, or networking opportunities to those offering or seeking to provide such opportunities (the “Intended Purpose”). Any conduct or interaction on the Website that appears, in our sole discretion, to be discourteous, disrespectful, distracting, discriminatory, vulgar, or not focused primarily on the Intended Purpose may result in the suspension or termination of a Registrant’s account. By way of example, but not limitation, use of the Website to make social connections with other Registrants, to make position statements, to debate particular issues (whether relevant or non-relevant), or to engage with others in any manner that creates offense or controversy in public areas of the Website or disrupts the event experience for others is contrary to the Intended Purpose. Jobs Connected, Inc. reserves the right at all times to determine, in its sole discretion, whether particular conduct conforms to the Intended Purpose of an event.
You agree that you will use the Services only for the Intended Purpose and that you will not use the Services for any illegal purposes or purposes other than the Intended Purpose. You agree that, in using the Services, you will not misrepresent your identity or intentions, modify or delete any email or communication headers or packet identifying information so as to hide or misrepresent your identity, register for an account or attend any chat session under a false identity or pseudonym or for purposes other than the Intended Purpose, or modify, adapt or hack the Website in any manner whatsoever. You agree that you will not use the Website in any manner that could damage, disable, overburden and/or impair any Jobs Connected server, or the network(s) connected to any Jobs Connected server, and/or interfere with any other party’s use and enjoyment of the Website. If your account is terminated for any reason, any subsequent registration by you for any Jobs Connected event without the express, written permission of Jobs Connected, reinstating your account privileges is a breach of these TERMS. Verbal, physical, written or other abuse (including threats of abuse or retribution) of any Jobs Connected participant, customer, employee, member, or officer or any person with whom you interact including Attendees, Representatives, or Hosts, through or as a result of the Services or your failure to follow reasonable instructions by Jobs Connected will result in immediate account termination and may result in legal action against you.

You must not transmit worms or viruses or any code of a destructive nature to Jobs Connected or to any party with whom you have been introduced via the Website.
You need to have an account to use Jobs Connected. There are three types of accounts you can create on Jobs Connected: an attendee account, a representative account, or a host account. Attendees are job seekers, students, professionals looking to network, and others who participate in an event by visiting the booths at the event. Representatives are employers, vendors, and others who participate in an event by having a booth at an event. Hosts are colleges/universities, employers, and other organizations that host an event. You can create an account on Jobs Connected as an attendee or representative at any time provided you over the age of 18 and legally deemed competent to enter into binding agreements, authorized by the third party, if any, that you represent, and have not been previously removed from the Service by Jobs Connected (in which case you must have express written consent of Jobs Connected to reregister with the Service). To create a host account, you must contact Jobs Connected support. You agree not to misrepresent any information about yourself in creating or using an account.
Creating an Attendee Account
Creating an Attendee Account Affiliated With an Institution Partnered With Jobs Connected:
Your university or organization may host an event with Jobs Connected. To attend the event, your university may require you to have a Jobs Connected account that is affiliated with their university. To sign up for an attendee account tied to your university or organization, make sure to select your university or organization when creating an account. After creating an account, we send an email to the email address provided to ensure that you are a current or former student of that university. You will then be able to register for any events hosted by your university and any public events.
Creating an Attendee Account Affiliated With an Institution That is Not an Institution Partner:
If a university you attend or have attended is not currently partnered with Jobs Connected, you can still indicate that you are affiliated with this university. Since the university is not partnered with Jobs Connected, there won’t be any events for this university available, but you will be able to register for any public events.
Creating an Attendee Account Not Affiliated With an Institution:
You can create an attendee account that is not affiliated with a university if you prefer. We will send an email address used to create an account to confirm that the email address you used at sign up is yours. After creating an account, you will be able to register for any public events. You can add an affiliation to a university after creating an account with a university affiliation in your account profile settings.
Creating a Representative Account
To create a Representative Account you must either associate yourself with a current organization that is registered with Jobs Connected and be approved by that organization or create a new Organization. Representatives have access to public events and any events that they are invited to attend by hosting institutions. You agree that any information you provide through account registration is accurate, current, and complete, and you agree to update your information as necessary to maintain its truth and accuracy. You agree to provide accurate and current information and to correct any misrepresentations immediately upon discovery. All organizations that register with Jobs Connected must be legitimate organizations and all representatives of an existing organization on Jobs Connected must be an active member in good standing and duly authorized to act on behalf of that organization. Any organizations found to be fraudulent or intended to take advantage of attendees (multi-level marketing companies and other similar companies) will not be allowed to use the Jobs Connected Service. Once an organization’s representative has created an account and registers on behalf of that organization for an event, the representatives will be able to view attendee data regarding visits to any booths created by the organization. The representatives may also be able to search for attendees and other representatives that have elected to share their profile. Representatives are prohibited from disclosing or sharing this information with other parties, and agree to keep this data confidential. This data is intended to allow representatives to gain insights into attendees so that you can improve your booth and materials to gain more traction for the event and source candidates (for hire if an employer or sales leads if a vendor). Representatives shall only use this data for approved purposes relating to the event and agree to not use, sell, or disclose Jobs Connected Data for any purposes including data analytics, data monetization, advertising, marketing or any other purpose even if such Jobs Connected Data is aggregated or de-identiﬁed. Representatives also agree not to use the Service to send spam or other unauthorized communications, and you agree not to use any collected data for purposes not authorized by Jobs Connected.
Choosing Who Can Seee Your Profile
For events that require payment through the host institution, the host institution’s refund policy applies. For any events that require payment through Jobs Connected, attendees or representatives will be directed to pay through Stripe, Job Connected’s credit card processor. Jobs Connected does not offer refunds for any registrations, regardless of whether or not the attendee or representative fails to show up to the event or is removed from the event for violating the host institution’s policies or Jobs Connected’s Terms of Service. In certain rare circumstances, Jobs Connected may make an exception, but this is at the full discretion of Jobs Connected. You agree to not cancel any payments made to Jobs Connected via registration.
