EXPERTISE HAS NO LIABILITY OR RESPONSIBILITY TO USERS FOR PERFORMANCE OR NON-PERFORMANCE OF SUCH ACTIVITIES. Expertise reserves the right to expel Users and prevent their further access to the Site for violating the Terms & Conditions or the law and the right to remove communications which are abusive, illegal, or disruptive. Expertise 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 Expertise or may cause Expertise to lose (in whole or in part) the services of its ISPs or other suppliers.
By submitting information/content to the Site, you grant Expertise the loyalty-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 information/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 information/content.

Expertise is not involved in the actual transaction between employers/recruiters and candidates. As a result, Expertise has no control over the quality, safety or legality of the jobs or personal information posted, the truth or accuracy of the job postings and personal information/Profiles, the ability of employers to offer job opportunities to candidates or the ability of candidates to fill employment positions. In addition, note that there are risks, including but not limited to the risk of physical harm, of dealing with strangers, foreign nationals, persons under the age of consent or people acting under false pretenses. YOU ASSUME ALL RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH DEALING WITH OTHER USERS WITH WHOM YOU COME IN CONTACT THROUGH THE SITE.
Because User authentication on the Internet is difficult, Expertise cannot and does not confirm that each User is who they claim to be.
