This Agreement governs your use of the services offered by PartnerSimple.com and its affiliates and strategic partners on this website (the “Site”) (“We,” the “Service”).

Please read this Agreement before using the Site.  If you object to anything in this Agreement or the Privacy Policy, do not use the Service.

PartnerSimple.com specifically prohibits any other use of the Site, and you agree not to (i) post misleading content or content that contains hyperlinks, “hidden” keywords or keywords that are irrelevant to any Authorized Use; (ii) use any PartnerSimple.com database for any purpose other than an Authorized Use; (iii) post or submit to the Site or any other Users any incomplete, false or inaccurate biographical information or information that is not your own; (iv) send unsolicited mail or e-mail, make unsolicited phone calls, or send unsolicited faxes regarding promotions and/or advertising of products or services to other Users; (v) delete or revise any material posted by anyone other than you; (vi) take any action that imposes an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on the Site’s infrastructure; or (vii) aggregate, copy or duplicate in any manner any PartnerSimple.com Content or information, without our express written consent.

We do not take part in the interactions, contracts, or transactions between Users and do not assume any responsibility for the accuracy or reliability of any information on PartnerSimple.com.  Due to the nature of the Internet, we cannot confirm that each User is who or what they claim to be. Any misstatements and/or misrepresentations regarding the age, background, felonies, criminal offenses, open police investigations, experience, and/or eligibility for employment in the jurisdiction in which such employment is sought, by any User of the Site is the sole responsibility of the User committing the misrepresentation and not the responsibility of PartnerSimple.com.

We make no representations or warranties about the quality, suitability, reliability, timeliness, and accuracy of the information provided or services offered by Users through the Site whether in public, private, or offline interactions. We do not have control over the integrity, responsibility, or any of the actions whatsoever of the Users. Users must deal directly with the other User to resolve any disputes.
