Recruitment firms, employment agencies, headhunters, or any other similar firms (or their employees, contractors, or agents) are prohibited from using the Site and Services. In addition, you may not resell or transfer access to JobBliss to any other party. Your account is for your Company’s express use only and not transferable to any other person or entity.

You may edit or remove your Listing at any time. Each Listing is for one (1) Opportunity; it is not permitted for one Listing to solicit applications for more than one Opportunity. Listings without a reasonable and legitimate intent to hire for the specific Opportunity listed are prohibited. Listings that intentionally misrepresent the Opportunity are prohibited.

Candidates’ applications are confidential to the Companies to which they have applied. It is strictly prohibited to provide identifiable candidate resume or application data to any other parties or to contact the candidate for any unauthorized purposes.

Company Private Database

Companies can manage information about freelancers/contractors that they are interested in or that they have previously worked with using the “Company database”, which is a non-public database platform that assists Companies with managing their freelancer/contractor bookings and contacts. Each Company’s Database can only be accessed, viewed and shared with other individuals within that Company. Examples of information that may be recorded in Company database includes, but is not limited to:

  • Names and contact information for freelancers
  • Bookings
  • Copies of contracts between freelancer/contractor and the Company
  • Hours worked by freelancer/contractor
  • Work rates of freelancer/contractor
  • Freelancer/Contractors’ histories with the Company

When a Company enters information about a contractor or freelancer in its Company Database, the contractor / freelancer will receive a notification that they have been added to the database.

Each Company shall keep all Contractor, Freelancer or Resource information recorded in its Company database in strict confidence and will not directly or indirectly transfer, disclose, publish, or make available any information to any person, firm, company, consultant, partnership, entity, or other third party outside of the Company without the prior written consent of the Freelancer.

JOBBLISS CANNOT AND DOES NOT CONTROL THE COLLECTION, USE AND DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION RECORDED BY COMPANIES IN THEIR COMPANY DATABASE.

Access to your COMPANY DATABASE will automatically expire on the expiration date, which is set according to the plan you select when purchasing the subscription. JobBliss reserves the right to terminate access to the COMPANY DATABASE at any time, with or without cause. If JobBliss terminates access to the COMPANY DATABASE with cause (due to a violation of the Terms, or any other supplemental governing contract), you will not receive a refund. If JobBliss chooses to terminate access to the COMPANY DATABASE without cause, you will receive a refund, prorated by the number of days that access was permitted.
