Term of Service
The jobs contained in Indeed's search results, or linked from those results, may have been created by people over whom Indeed exercises no control. Indeed's job search results are indexed in an automated manner and Indeed does not screen the jobs. Indeed assumes no responsibility for the content of any job listing or website that is either included in Indeed's search results or linked to by Indeed.com.
Use of Indeed
Forums & Posting Opportunities
The Indeed message boards, other forums, as well as other opportunities to post, hosted by Indeed and its designees (collectively, the "Forums") are designed to help readers obtain career and company information and discuss ways to make career decisions. This information is provided by outside contributors, many of whom use anonymous screen names. They may occasionally post messages or make statements that are misleading, deceptive, or downright wrong. Indeed does not endorse and is not responsible for any opinion, advice, information, or statement made or displayed on the Forums by third parties. You acknowledge that by accessing the Forums, you may come into contact with content that you find harmful, offensive, threatening, indecent or objectionable and you acknowledge that Indeed shall have no liability to you for the content including, but not limited to explicit language and other potentially offensive material.
Users of the Forums must not post content or information that is unlawful, fraudulent, threatening, abusive, libelous, defamatory, obscene or otherwise objectionable or that contains sexual, ethnic or racial or other discriminating slurs, or material which contains no relevant or constructive content, which goes beyond profanity into obscenity or abhorrence, or which is otherwise in violation of the law. Users are also prohibited from posting any proprietary information, trade secrets or confidential information. Users may not post any advertisements, solicitations, chain letters, pyramid schemes, investment opportunities, or other unsolicited commercial communication (except as otherwise expressly permitted by us), or engage in spamming or flooding.
Although Indeed has no obligation to do so, Indeed may monitor messages posted on its Forums and reserves the right to delete portions of or entire posts which violate the above rules, messages, topics that are unrelated to the specific message board on which they are posted, advertisements, recruiting or other commercial messages, and any other post that Indeed deems in its sole discretion is inappropriate. If you believe a message violates our policies, please contact Indeed immediately so that we can consider its editing or removal. Indeed reserves the right to disclose such materials and the circumstances surrounding their transmission to any third party in order to operate its site properly; to protect itself, its partners and its visitors; and to comply with legal obligations or governmental requests.

If you post content or submit material, you grant Indeed a nonexclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, royalty-free, sublicensable (through multiple layers of sublicensees) right and license to make, use, sell, sublicense, reproduce, distribute, perform, display, prepare derivative works from and otherwise exploit all such content and materials for any purpose without restriction. Furthermore, you grant Indeed, its affiliates, and sublicensees the right to use your name and/or user name in connection with the content. You represent and warrant that all content and materials you provide shall be your original work product and will not be based on, or derived from, the proprietary information or items of a third party. You agree not to impersonate any person or communicate under a false name or a name you are not entitled or authorized to use. You will defend and indemnify Indeed and its affiliates from any claims resulting from any content or materials you provide hereunder.

You agree that Indeed may disclose that Feedback to any third party in any manner and you agree that Indeed has the ability to sublicense all Feedback in any form to any third party without restriction.

Indeed reserves the right to use the content of messages sent through Indeed to prevent potentially illegal activities and activities that are detrimental to other users. Indeed reserves the right to 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.

Claims of 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 Indeed 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: (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 Indeed 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 Indeed 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 to Indeed Copyright Notice, 177 Broad Street, 6th Floor, Stamford, CT, 06901 (copyright @ indeed.com). We suggest that you consult your legal advisor before filing a notice or counter-notice. Also, be aware that there can be penalties for false claims under the DMCA.
