(“We”, “Us”, “Our”, and the “Foundation”)
relating to our Terms of Service
We’re delighted you want to use our online software application called FutureBuilder and genuinely believe it is going to be a valuable tool to help increase opportunities for your employment.
We need you, or if you’re under 19, your parent or guardian, to explicitly agree to our Terms of Service in accessing our web site and using our online software application. Even if your parent or guardian is agreeing to be legally bound with the Foundation, we want you to understand some of the legal obligations involved in using our services.
In that respect, we’ve tried to use plain English below to explain some of our key expectations in using our services.
You may use Our services only in compliance with the Terms of Service, which is a formal legal document. If there is any conflict between what we explain below and the Terms of Service, what is stated in the Terms of Service governs. If you are ever unsure about what something means or what you can or cannot do, please get in touch with us at email@example.com.
First and foremost, let’s talk about the information you will be providing to Us and your privacy.
By using our services, you provide us with personal information regarding your background including education, skills, interests, volunteer and paid employment matters (together, “your stuff”). You retain full ownership to your stuff. We don’t claim any ownership to any of it.
And We will not disclose your stuff to anyone. Only you control that access, which We assume will be to persons interested in employing you.
The Terms of Service do not grant us any rights to your stuff except for the limited rights that are needed to run the services. For example, We need your permission to do things you ask us to do with your stuff, like hosting the information you provide to Us, or sharing that information at your direction.
This includes features visible to you, for example, image thumbnails or document previews. It also includes design choices We make to technically administer our services, like backing up data to keep it safe. You give us the permissions we need to do those things solely to provide the services. This permission also extends to trusted third parties we work with to provide our services (for example, other companies from whom we license online storage space on their computer servers or who power our web site and the software on it).
You are solely responsible for your conduct, the content of your information, your communications with others, and permissions to others to access the information you upload while using the services available on Our web site.
It’s your responsibility to ensure that you have the rights or permission needed to comply with the Terms of Service.
We are not responsible for the accuracy, completeness, appropriateness, or legality of files, posts, or any other information you provide using Our services.
You will be fully responsible and liable for what you copy, upload, or otherwise provide to us in the course of using the Services. Please be sure you have the rights to use any material you might obtain from others which you want to include in the information you provide to us (such as photographs).
You must not upload spyware or any other malicious software to Our services.
You are responsible for maintaining and protecting all of your stuff, so be sure you have copies or back-ups. We will not be liable for any loss of your stuff.
If your contact information, or other information related to your account, changes, you must notify us promptly and keep your information current.
You are responsible for safeguarding the password that you use to access the services and you agree not to disclose your password to any third party.
You are responsible for any activity using your account, whether or not you authorized that activity.
You should immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your account.
Acceptable Use Policy
Our expectation is that you use our services responsibly. For example, you must not, and must not attempt to, use our services to do any of the following things:
- probe, scan, or test the vulnerability of any system or network;
- breach or otherwise circumvent any security or authentication measures;
- send a virus, overload, flood, spam, or mail-bomb any part of the services;
- plant malware or otherwise use the services to distribute malware;
- impersonate any person or entity;
- publish or share materials that are unlawfully pornographic or indecent, or that advocate bigotry, religious, racial or ethnic hatred;
- violate the law in any way, or to violate the privacy of others, or to defame others.
We reserve the right to suspend or end the Services at any time, with or without cause, and with or without notice. For example, We may suspend or terminate your use if you are not complying with our Terms of Service.
Again, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
