You agree that by clicking “Join Now”, “Join CUEDIn”, “Sign Up” or similar, registering, accessing or using our services (described below), you are agreeing to enter into a legally binding contract with CUEDIn (even if you areusing our Services on behalf of a company). If you do not agree to this contract (“Contract” or “User Agreement”), do not click “Join Now” (or similar) and do not access or otherwise use any of our Services. If you wish to terminate this contract, at any time you can do so by closing your account and no longer accessing or using our Services.
This Contract applies to CUEDIn, communications, and other services that state that they are offered under this Contract (“Services”), including the offsite collection of data for those Services, such as our ads and the “Apply with CUEDIn” and “Share with CUEDIn” plugins. Registered users of our Services are “Members” and unregistered users are “Visitors”.
You are entering into this Contract with CUEDIn (also referred to as “we” and “us”).
If you reside outside of the United States of America and have accepted our user agreement, you abide by the governing laws of the United States of America.
This Contract applies to Members and Visitors.
When you register and join the CUEDIn network of Services, you become a Member. If you have chosen not to register for our Services, you may access certain features as a “Visitor.”
We may make changes to the Contract.
Here are some promises that you make to us in this Contract:
You’re eligible to enter into this Contract either through parent or guardian permission, or you are at least our “Minimum Age” (see below).
If you need parent or guardian permission, we will provide you throughout the onboarding process the ability to enter an email address to grant access from your parent/guardian. There are certain Services you won’t be able to access until your parent/guardian approves through their email.
If you are of “Minimum Age”, to use the Services, you agree that: (1) you will only have one CUEDIn account, which must be in your real name with real data; and (2) you are not already restricted by CUEDIn from using the Services. Creating an account with false information is a violation of our terms, including accounts registered on behalf of others or not providing the correct date of birth (age) within the CUEDIn for hiring employers. These measure could result in termination or restrictions to your account.
“Minimum Age” means 16 years old. However, if law requires that you must be older in order for CUEDIN to lawfully provide the Services to you without parental consent (including using of your personal data) then the Minimum Age is such older age.
You will keep your password a secret.
You will not share an account with anyone else and will follow our rules and the law.
Members are account holders. You agree to: (1) use a strong password and keep it confidential; (2) not transfer any part of your account (e.g., connections) and (3) follow the law and our list of Dos and Don’ts. You are responsible for anything that happens through your account unless you close it or report misuse.
As between you and others, your account belongs to you. However, if the Services were purchased or sent to you by another party for you to use (e.g. Institution or Employer upgrades services), the party paying for such Service has the right to control access to and get reports on your use and information of such paid Service; however, they do not have rights to your personal account unless for coaching or consulting purposes.
If you choose to leave an affiliated organization within your profile settings (e.g. graduated from an institution), that party is able to contact you for data purposes. You will be notified when such purposes occur.
You’re okay with us providing notices and messages to you through our websites, emails, platforms, and other contact information you provide. If your contact information is out of date, you may miss out on important notices.
You agree that we will provide notices and messages to you in the following ways: (1) within the Service, or (2) sent to the contact information you provided us (e.g., email, mobile number, physical address). You agree to keep your contact information up to date within your profile settings.
When you share information on our Services, others can see, copy and use that information. You will be able to share information privately, in my network (i.e. institution, employers, etc) or within the CUEDIn network.
Our Services allow messaging and sharing of information in many ways, such as your profile, articles, group posts, links to news articles, and job postings. Information and content that you share or post may be seen by other Members, Visitors. Where we have made settings available, we will honor the choices you make about who can see content or information (e.g., message content to your addressees, sharing content only to CUEDIn Connections. For job searching activities, we default to not notifying your connections network or the public. So, if you apply for a job through our Service or opt to click apply to send your application to the employer, our default is to share it only with the job poster.
We are not obligated to publish any information or content on our Service and can remove it with or without notice.
You own all of the content, feedback and personal information you provide to us, but you also grant us a non-exclusive license to it.

CUEDIn generally tries to have its team members review content. Since we might not be able to review all content, you agree that we are not responsible for others’ (including other Members’) content or information. We cannot always prevent this misuse of our Services, and you agree that we are not responsible for any such misuse. You also acknowledge the risk that you or your organization may be mistakenly associated with content about others when we let connections and followers know you or your organization were mentioned in the news.

4.4 Basics of Limitations
The limitations of liability in this Section 4 are part of the basis of the bargain between you and CUEDIn and shall apply to all claims of liability (e.g., warranty, tort, negligence, contract and law) even if LinkedIn or its affiliates has been told of the possibility of any such damage, and even if these remedies fail their essential purpose.
These limitations of liability do not apply to liability for death or personal injury or for fraud, gross negligence or intentional misconduct, or in cases of negligence where a material obligation has been breached, a material obligation being such which forms a prerequisite to our delivery of services and on which you may reasonably rely, but only to the extent that the damages were directly caused by the breach and were foreseeable upon conclusion of this Contract and to the extent that they are typical in the context of this Contract.
We can each end this Contract, but some rights and obligations survive.
Both you and CUEDIn may terminate this Contract at any time with notice to the other. On termination, you lose the right to access or use the Services. The following shall survive termination:
In the unlikely event we end up in a legal dispute, you and CUEDIn agree to resolve it in Virginia courts using Virginia law.
This section shall not deprive you of any mandatory consumer protections under the law of the country to which we direct Services to you, where you have your habitual residence.
You and CUEDIn agree that the laws of Virginia, excluding conflict of laws rules, shall exclusively govern any dispute relating to this Contract and/or the Services. You and CUEDIn agree that claims and disputes can be litigated only in Virginia.
For others outside of the United States of America: You and CUEDIn agree that the laws of the State of Virginia, U.S.A., excluding its conflict of laws rules, shall exclusively govern any dispute relating to this Contract and/or the Services. You and CUEDInIn both agree that all claims and disputes can be litigated only in the federal or state courts in Harrisonburg City, Virginia, USA, and you and CUEDIn each agree to personal jurisdiction in those courts.
Here are some important details about the Contract.
If a court with authority over this Contract finds any part of it unenforceable, you and we agree that the court should modify the terms to make that part enforceable while still achieving its intent. If the court cannot do that, you and we agree to ask the court to remove that unenforceable part and still enforce the rest of this Contract.
This Contract (including additional terms that may be provided by us when you engage with a feature of the Services) is the only agreement between us regarding the Services and supersedes all prior agreements for the Services.
If we don't act to enforce a breach of this Contract, that does not mean that CUEDIn has waived its right to enforce this Contract.
