The information in this section applies to all User accounts. If you sign up and/or create an account with Clean Energy Social (in accordance with Section 7C or Section 8 below), you may control your profile information and how you interact with the Services by changing the settings on your Settings page. When creating your account or uploading information to the Services through your account, you represent and warrant that you will provide accurate and complete information. You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs under your account. You are expected to use "strong" passwords (passwords that use a combination of upper and lowercase letters, numbers and symbols) with your account.
You must exercise caution when accessing your account from a public or shared computer so that others are not able to view or record your password or other personal information. You understand and agree that your account is personal to you and you agree not to provide any other person with access to the Services using your username, password, or other security information. You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized access to or use of your username or password or any other breach of security. You understand that even if you notify us, you will be totally responsible for all activities that occur under your account. You also agree to ensure that you logout from your account at the end of each session. You are responsible for any password misuse or any unauthorized access.
By connecting to the Services using a third-party service, you give us permission to access and use your information from that service as permitted by that service, and to store your log-in credentials for that service. For example, if you access the Services through a social networking site, you agree that Clean Energy Social can access, store, and make available on the Services, any information and data that you provide in your applicable social networking site account such that the same information is available in your Clean Energy Social account. You agree that we are not liable for any personal data that is made available to us in violation of your privacy settings with the applicable social networking site.
Clean Energy Social may suspend or terminate your account and/or your access to the Services, or any portion of the Services at any time without notice to you, for any reason, including if in our sole discretion we determine that you have violated the terms of this Agreement (including in accordance with Section 1E and/or 6F below). Upon any such termination, all the provisions of this Agreement shall continue to survive except for any provisions that grant you access to any of the Services. You agree that we will have no liability to you for any termination or suspension of your access to the Services or your account, or the deletion of information contained within such account.
E. General Rules for Use of Services
You agree not to engage in any of the following prohibited activities: (i) copying, distributing, or disclosing any part of the Services in any medium, including without limitation by any automated or non-automated "scraping"; (ii) using any automated system, including without limitation "robots," "spiders," "offline readers," etc., to access the Services in a manner that sends more request messages to the Clean Energy Social servers than a human can reasonably produce in the same period of time by using a conventional on-line web browser (except that Clean Energy Social grants the operators of public search engines revocable permission to use spiders to copy materials from Cleanenergysocial.com for the sole purpose of, and solely to the extent necessary for, creating publicly available searchable indices of the materials, but not caches or archives of such materials); (iii) transmitting spam, chain letters, or other unsolicited communications; (iv) attempting to interfere with, compromise the system integrity or security or decipher any transmissions to or from the servers running the Services; (v) taking any action that imposes, or may impose, as determined in our sole discretion, an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on our infrastructure; (vi) uploading invalid data, viruses, worms, or other software agents through the Services; (vii) collecting or harvesting any personally identifiable information from the Services, except as expressly permitted by certain features of the Services; (viii) using the Services for any commercial solicitation purposes; (ix) impersonating another person or otherwise misrepresenting your affiliation with a person or entity, conducting fraud, hiding or attempting to hide your identity; (x) interfering with the proper working of the Services; (xi) accessing any content on the Services through any technology or means other than those provided or authorized by the Services; (xii) bypassing the measures we may use to prevent or restrict access to the Services, including without limitation, features that prevent or restrict use or copying of any content or enforce limitations on use of the Services or the content therein; (xiii) disclosing or sharing login credentials; (xiv) reverse engineering or decompiling any parts of the Services; (xv) frame or link to any information or content on the Services; (xvi) post or submit any inaccurate, incomplete, or false biographical information or another person's information; or (xvi) post or submit any material that is unlawful, illegal, defamatory, offensive, discriminatory, threatening, or obscene as determined by Clean Energy Social.
We may, without prior notice, change any aspect of the Services; stop providing the Services or features of the Services; or create usage limits for the Services (for paid products and services). If any such change, cessation or limitation of the Services materially and adversely affects you, then you may terminate the Services on written notice to us. In the event of such termination, you will receive a pro-rata refund of any pre-paid fees pertaining to Services paid for, but not provided, for the balance of the applicable term of your then-current subscription plan. We may permanently or temporarily limit, condition, terminate or suspend your access to the Services or any features thereof, including if in our sole determination (acting reasonably) you breach or violate any provision of this Agreement, commit fraud or other abuse using the Services.
You are solely responsible for your interactions with other Clean Energy Social Users. We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to monitor disputes between you and other Users.

2. USER CONTENT AND USERS
A. Posting or Viewing User Content
The Services may allow Users to post and/or provide content that may be viewable by other Users, including, but not limited to, Job Advertisements, company information, a job seeker's application information, content of messages, resumes/CVs, logos, trademarks, comments, questions, and other content or information ("User Content").
User Content is the sole responsibility of the person or entity that provided the User Content. You shall be solely responsible for your User Content and the consequences of posting, providing or publishing it.
B. Prohibited Types of User Content
The following list is intended to be illustrative of the types of User Content that are prohibited, but this is not an exhaustive list: You agree not to post or provide User Content that (i) may create a risk of harm to any person or property; (ii) provides instructional information about illegal activities; (iii) involves the transmission of junk or unsolicited mail or other communications, 'phishing' or 'scamming'; (iv) provides links to material that is illegal or offensive, or targets or solicits personal information from anyone under the age of 18; (v) contains any information or content that we deem to be unlawful, harmful, abusive, racially or ethnically offensive, defamatory, infringing, invasive of personal privacy or publicity rights, harassing, humiliating to other people (publicly or otherwise), libelous, threatening, profane, or otherwise objectionable; (vi) contains any information or content that is illegal (including, without limitation, the disclosure of insider information under securities law or of another party's trade secrets); (vii) contains any information or content that you do not have a right to make available under any law or under contractual or fiduciary relationships; (viii) contains any information or content that is false, misleading, or otherwise deceptive; or (ix) violates the Intellectual Property Rights (as defined below) or rights of privacy of any third party. For the purposes of this Agreement, "Intellectual Property Rights" means patent rights, copyright rights, mask work rights, moral rights, rights of publicity, trademark, trade dress and service mark rights, goodwill, trade secret rights and other intellectual property rights as may now exist or hereafter come into existence, and all applications therefore and registrations, renewals and extensions thereof, under the laws of any state, country, territory or other jurisdiction. If you are a Client providing or submitting Job Advertisements, you further agree that such content will not contain any personally identifiable information.
C. No Warranties or Obligations
You agree that Clean Energy Social makes no representations, warranties, promises or guarantees regarding any content provided or generated by third parties, including, without limitation, the content of messages, Job Advertisements and resumés. You further agree that Clean Energy Social acts as a passive conduit for the distribution, provision, and publication of User Content, and has no obligation to screen or verify the accuracy, legality, legitimacy, truthfulness, or completeness of User Content, and accordingly, you accept that Clean Energy Social is not responsible and has no liability for User Content. You understand that you may be exposed to User Content that is inaccurate, incomplete, illegal, misleading, false, offensive, constitutes spam, or is otherwise unsuited to your purpose, and you accept that it is your responsibility to verify the quality, accuracy, truthfulness, legality or reliability of User Content, including, without limitation, resumes/CVs and Job Advertisements and content of messages. Your reliance on any User Content is at your own risk.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, although Clean Energy Social has no obligation to screen User Content, to the extent that Clean Energy Social becomes or is made aware of User Content that may or does (i) violate the terms of this Agreement or any other Agreement you have with Clean Energy Social, or (ii) violate any law or regulation, or (iii) violate the rights of third parties, or (iv) create liability for Clean Energy Social or otherwise negatively impact Clean Energy Social, Clean Energy Social reserves the right to reject and/or remove such User Content, and suspend and/or terminate any User Account associated with such User Content.
D. User Content and the U.S. Communications Decency Act
Please note Section 230 of the U.S. Communications Decency Act ("CDA") (and the equivalent or similar laws in your jurisdiction) is intended to exclude or limit the liability of online service providers such as Clean Energy Social, when such online service providers provide or make available access to third-party user generated content (see § 230 (c)(1) which states: No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider).
The decision by Clean Energy Social to remove or not post or distribute any User Content, does not by itself amount to participation in the creation of such User Content and, accordingly, does not constitute a waiver of the immunity afforded by the CDA. Additionally, § 230 (c)(2) of the CDA specifically provides: "No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be held liable on account of (A) any action voluntarily taken in good faith to restrict access to or availability of material that the provider or user considers to be obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy, excessively violent, harassing, or otherwise objectionable whether or not such material is constitutionally protected…"
E. User Interactions and Assumption of Risk
You understand and agree that Clean Energy Social does not, and cannot, confirm that each User is who he/she/they claim to be. We are not responsible for authenticating Users and therefore it is your responsibility to conduct the appropriate due diligence before communicating or interacting with other Users, including, without limitation, Job Seekers, employers, staffing agencies, and recruiters. You assume all risks associated with Users with whom you come into contact. If you have any disputes or issues with any User you agree to pursue any remedies directly with the applicable User and you release Clean Energy Social, its subsidiaries, and their respective employees, directors and agents from all claims, demands and damages of every kind (actual and consequential and direct and indirect) known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, to the fullest extent permitted by law.
F. Content Disclosure
Clean Energy Social reserves the right to disclose User Content and any information related to the provider of such User Content, to third parties in connection with the operation and provision of the Services, to enforce the terms of any agreement that we have with you, to comply with legal obligations and requests from governmental authorities, law enforcement agencies, court orders, subpoenas, etc., and to protect the interests of Clean Energy Social where necessary. For the avoidance of doubt, you agree that we have the right to disclose your identity to a third party who is claiming that any User Content you posted, provided or uploaded is fraudulent, false, or misleading or constitutes a violation of the law, or a violation of their intellectual property or ownership rights, or of their right to privacy.
3. USER CONTENT LICENSE GRANT
By posting, submitting, providing and/or otherwise making available any User Content, you expressly grant, and represent that you have a right to grant, to Clean Energy Social, a royalty-free, sublicensable (through multiple layers of sublicensees), perpetual, transferable, non-exclusive, worldwide license to use, sell, reproduce, adapt, translate, sublicense, publicly perform, publicly display, and make derivative works from and otherwise exploit, all such User Content in whole or in part, and in any form, media or technology, whether now known or hereafter developed, for the purposes of posting such User Content on the Clean Energy Social websites, distributing such User Content through the Clean Energy Social distribution and publishing network and in job alerts to job seekers, and to promote Clean Energy Social and the Services.

Any attempt by you to transfer any of the rights, duties or obligations hereunder, except as expressly provided for in this Agreement, is void. Clean Energy Social reserves all rights not expressly granted under this Agreement.

B. No Refunds for Paid Services
You may cancel your subscription to paid services at any time, pursuant to Section 6.E below, and you accept that you will not receive a refund of pre-paid fees for such cancellation, except where otherwise set out in this Agreement.

If you elect to add additional paid services or products to your selected subscription or upgrade your subscription, we will invoice you for such services, products and upgrades, and/or charge your credit or debit card (or other payment method) accordingly.
Delinquent payments may bear interest at the rate of one-and-one-half percent per month (eighteen percent per annum) or the highest rate permitted by law, if less, from the payment due date until paid in full. You will be responsible for all reasonable expenses (including legal fees and expenses) incurred by Clean Energy Social in collecting delinquent amounts, except where the delinquent amounts are due to billing inaccuracies.

By providing any Payment Method, you agree that applicable credit card, debit card and billing information may be shared with third parties such as payment processors and credit agencies, and/or collection agencies for the purposes of checking your credit, effecting payment, collecting payments and late fees if applicable, and for providing the applicable Services to you or in order to enforce our agreement with you. We may also share this information with law enforcement authorities and in response to subpoenas, court orders, and search warrants.

Once you submit a Job Application, your profile information and other applicable information will be shared with the entity that posted the Job Advertisement as long as any parameters selected by that entity are met, where applicable. You should therefore ensure that the information you provide is complete and accurate, and only contains information that you are comfortable sharing.
If you ask Clean Energy Social to submit a message to any employer or third party or if you apply for a job using the Services, you accept that Clean Energy Social does not guarantee that the recipient entity will receive, access, view, or respond to your requests or Job Applications, or that the transmission of data will be error-free. Any screener questions provided by the entity posting a Job Advertisement are entirely in the control of that entity and if you require alternate screener questions or application process, you must contact the applicable entity directly.
B. Applying to Job Advertisements on a Clean Energy Social Website
When you apply to a Job Advertisement on a Clean Energy Social website, if all parameters selected by the entity that posted the Job Advertisement are met, we will send the profile information associated with your account.
If you have manually logged out of your account or if you have been automatically logged out of your account because of inaction or some other reason, we will ask you to input your email so we can verify your identity before we send the resume associated with your account. Once you receive the verification email and confirm your identity by following the instructions in the email, we will send out the profile information associated with your account.
IMPORTANT: It is your responsibility to ensure that the profile associated with your account is always updated, current and accurate before you apply to a Job Advertisement or opt-in to the Professional Database, so an employer receives the most up-to-date information about you. In order to delete old profile information, edit your profile information, or upload new profile information, please go to the Profile settings in your User account.
Additionally, although Clean Energy Social requests that companies maintain the confidentiality of the Job Applications and profile information they receive through the Services, Clean Energy Social cannot and does not guarantee that the information you provide will be held in confidence or properly secured by the applicable recipient.
C. Account Creation
In addition to your ability to manually create a Clean Energy Social account yourself, a Clean Energy Social account will automatically be created for you in the following circumstances, if you don't already have an account:
(a) When you sign up for job alerts with Clean Energy Social; or
(b) When you apply to a Job Advertisement on a Clean Energy Social website, using for example, the 'Apply Now' button.
When an account is automatically created for you, you will receive an email with your user name (which is usually your email address) and a link to reset your password. Whether or not you choose to reset your password, the account will exist under your email address and the resume associated with the action you took (e.g., applying for a job, signing-up for job alerts, etc.), will be connected with that account. So, before applying to a Job Advertisement, please ensure that your resume is up-to-date so that employers receive the most recent information about you.
If you do not wish to have a Clean Energy Social account, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or go to your account settings and close your account.
D. Job Alerts
You can manually sign up to receive job alerts by email. In addition to a manual sign up, if you apply to Job Advertisements on a Clean Energy Social website and/or create an account, you may agree to receive email job alerts based on the type of role you selected. You can edit or change the type of job alerts want to receive by accessing the company favorites tab in your User account. You may opt out of job alerts by clicking on the favorites heart in your profile. You can also contact email@example.com, if you need assistance.
E. Professional Database
Clean Energy Social has a feature which permits professionals to include their profile information in a professional database (the, "Professional Database") to be stored on the Service.
Making Your Profile Public: If you elect to make your professional profile 'public' in your Account settings or during your account creation: (i) it will be added it to the Professional Database, (ii) your profile information (including your personal information, to the extent provided in your profile) will be available to be viewed or downloaded by any persons or entities that have access rights to the Professional Database, (iii) your profeil will be visible in whole or in part via search results within the Professional Database, and (iv) your profile information will be visible in part to Clients with active Job Ads to invite or rate candidates to apply.
If you add your profile information to the Professional Database, then you are:
- Consenting to Clean Energy Social matching words, skills, or certifications that are present or implied in your profile or other application materials to words, skills, or certifications present or implied in a Job Advertisement or an employer's or recruiter's search of terms, and if there are any matches, to present matching profile information to the applicable employer or recruiter and to send information to you about Job Advertisements that may be of interest to you.
- Acknowledging that we may 'parse' the profile information and other applicable information into another format to create a profile view and/or enable searchable text for a Company; the Company will also be able to see your profile information in the form in which you originally submitted it to Clean Energy Social.
Keeping Your Profile Private: If you elect to keep your professional profile private, it will not be public in the Professional Database. If you had previously made your profile public, and wish to opt-out, you may do so at any time by adjusting the settings in the personal settings of your account. If you opt-out, we will remove your professional profile from the Professional Database and disable visibility to search results as soon as reasonably practicable. However, if an entity has already accessed your profile information through the Professional Database or search results and copied or saved your profile information, that entity will continue to have access to your profile information and all information you included in your profile information.
F. Interactions with Other Users; Scams; Confidentiality
You are solely responsible for your interactions with Users whom you contact or who contact you. Note: there are risks, including, but not limited to, the risk of physical harm, that may arise when dealing with strangers, including persons who may be acting under false pretenses. You should therefore use caution with regard to the information you elect to share as part of your User Profile or Job Application or profile information that. Only list the contact information that you are comfortable disclosing to Clients and other Users of the Services.
In addition to carefully reviewing this section and Section 2 above, you should conduct your own due diligence on potential employers and Job Advertisements that may be of interest to you.

If you are located in, are based in, have offices in, or do business in a jurisdiction in which this Section 17. is enforceable, the following mandatory arbitration provisions apply to you:
A. Binding Arbitration
This Section 15 is referred to in this Agreement as the "Agreement to Arbitrate". Unless you opt-out pursuant to the opt-out procedures set forth below, you agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and Clean Energy Social or its affiliates, whether relating to the Services, this Agreement (including any alleged breach thereof), or otherwise (each a "Dispute"), shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than a court in accordance with the terms of this Agreement to Arbitrate. Your rights will be determined by a neutral arbitrator, not a judge or jury. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT ABSENT THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE, YOU WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL.
A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party ("Notice"), by certified mail or Federal Express (signature required) or, in the event that we do not have a physical address on file for you, by electronic mail. Clean Energy Social's address for Notice is: Clean Energy Social., 14550 W Amherst Pl., Lakewood, CO 80228
The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought. We agree to use good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if we do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Clean Energy Social may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or Clean Energy Social shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any.
You and Clean Energy Social agree that any arbitration shall be limited to the Dispute between Clean Energy Social and you individually. To the full extent permitted by law, (1) no arbitration shall be joined with any other; (2) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (3) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons.
C. Exceptions to Informal Negotiations and Arbitration
You and Clean Energy Social agree that the following Disputes are not subject to the above provisions concerning informal negotiations and binding arbitration: (1) any Disputes seeking to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of, any of your or Clean Energy Social's intellectual property rights; (2) any Dispute related to, or arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, invasion of privacy or unauthorized use; and (3) any claim for injunctive relief.
D. 30 Day Right to Opt Out of Arbitration
You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by the arbitration provisions set forth in this Section 15 by sending written notice of your decision to opt-out to firstname.lastname@example.org or to the U.S. mailing address listed at the bottom of this Agreement. The notice must be sent to Clean Energy Social within thirty (30) days of your registering to use the Services or agreeing to these terms, otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of those sections. If you opt-out of these arbitration provisions, we also will not be bound by them.
A. Governing Law and Location
The Services are controlled and operated by Clean Energy Social from within the United States of America. Clean Energy Social makes no representations that the Services or the materials available via the Services, are appropriate or available for use in locations outside of the United States,. Those who choose to access the Services from other locations do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with all United States of America, as well as local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable.
Unless otherwise required by a mandatory law, this Agreement and any Disputes shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of Colorado, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. An arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different Users, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same User to the extent required by applicable law. Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, all arbitration and other litigation in a court of competent jurisdiction of any dispute between you and Clean Energy Social related to this Agreement shall be located in Jefferson County, Colorado.
This Agreement shall be personal to you and you may not assign, transfer, sublet, lease or delegate all or any of your rights and obligations, without the prior written consent of the General Counsel of Clean Energy Social or his/her designee. Clean Energy Social can assign this Agreement or delegate its obligations without restriction other than as required under applicable law.
C. Relationship of the Parties
Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed as making either party the partner, joint venturer, employer, contractor or employee of the other. Neither party shall have or hold itself out to any third party as having any authority to make any statements, representations or commitments of any kind, or to take any action, that shall be binding on the other, except as provided for herein or authorized in writing by the party to be bound.
Except as set out in this Agreement, only you and Clean Energy Social may enforce this Agreement as this contract is between you and Clean Energy Social; no other party shall be entitled to enforce the terms of this Agreement.
