TAG does not represent or guarantee the truthfulness, accuracy, or reliability of communications posted by users or endorse any opinions expressed by users. You acknowledge that any reliance on material posted by other users will be at your own risk.
TAG acts as a passive conduit for the online distribution and publication of user-submitted information and has no obligation to screen communications or information in advance and is not responsible for screening or monitoring material posted by users. If notified by a user of communications which allegedly do not conform to these Terms and Conditions, TAG may investigate the allegation and determine in good faith and its sole discretion whether to remove or request the removal of the communication. TAG has no liability or responsibility to users for performance or nonperformance of such activities. TAG reserves the right to expel users and prevent their further access to the Website for violating the Terms and Conditions or the law and the right to remove communications which are abusive, illegal, or disruptive. TAG may take any action with respect to user-submitted information that it deems necessary or appropriate in its sole discretion if it believes it may create liability for TAG or may cause TAG to lose (in whole or in part) the services of its ISPs or other suppliers.
By submitting content to any public or non-public area of the Website, including message boards, discussion groups, list servers, forums, contests and chat rooms, you grant TAG and its affiliates the royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, sublicenseable (through multiple tiers), non-exclusive right (including any moral rights) and license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, communicate to the public, perform and display the content (in whole or in part) worldwide and/or to incorporate it in other works in any form, media, or technology now known or later developed, for the full term of any rights that may exist in such content.

By using this Website you agree that under no circumstances will TAG, or any of its members, advertisers sponsors or affiliates or the partners, agents, or employees thereof be liable to you or anyone else for (1) any information contained in or omitted from this Website, (2) any person's reliance on such information whether or not the information is correct, current or complete (3) any decision made or action taken in reliance on the information in this Website or for any consequential, special, or similar damages, even if advised of the possibility of such damages.

The Job Boardis only a venue. TAG is not involved in the actual transaction between employers and candidates. As a result, TAG has no control over the quality, safety or legality of the jobs or resumes posted the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of employers to offer job opportunities to candidates or the ability of candidates to fill job openings. In addition, note 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. You assume all risks associated with dealing with other users with whom you come in contact through the Website.
Because user authentication on the Internet is difficult, TAG cannot and does not confirm that each user is who they claim to be. Because we do not and cannot be involved in user-to-user dealings or control the behavior of participants on the Job Board, in the event that you have a dispute with one or more users, you release TAG (and our agents and employees) 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 you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code d1542, which says: "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."
