By using the Services, you accept and agree to be bound and abide by these Terms and our Privacy Policy, found at https://www.joincandor.com/privacy, incorporated herein by reference.

1. Overview of the Services

Candor References, Inc. is a web platform that helps tech talent find belonging at work by surfacing data and feedback on teams and their leaders. Such content is in the form of User Submitted Content as defined below and Content submitted by you (“Your Submitted Content”).

A. Candor Accounts. If you choose to create an account, you will be asked to provide certain registration details or other information, such as first and last name, user name, company name, company title, password, email address and LinkedIn profile url. Your registration details and other information may not be an impersonation of another person. It is a condition of your use of the Services that all the information you provide is correct, current and complete. Candor reserves the right to verify your identity using the information you provide to us as well as publicly available information, including but not limited to your LinkedIn profile.

However, changes addressing new functions for the Services or changes made for legal reasons will be effective immediately.

10. Data Privacy and Personal Information

Regardless of where you use our Services or provide Information to us, the Information may be transferred to and maintained on servers located inside and outside the U.S., including to countries outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). By using our Services you acknowledge, agree and consent to the transfer and processing of your Information both inside and outside of the U.S. and in accordance with the Privacy Policy and U.S. law. 

No information transmitted over the Internet can be guaranteed to be secure. We cannot guarantee the security of any Information that you transmit to us, or receive from us. Although we take measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, we cannot assure you that Information that we collect and that you give us will not be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Privacy Policy.

12. Third Party Materials

The Services may link to independent third-party websites or social media widgets. Such hyperlinks are provided for your reference and convenience only. We are not liable for the availability or accuracy of such third-party sources, and you assume all risk in using them. When you link to them, these third-party sites or services may place cookies and other tracking technologies on your computer and may have different rules for using or sharing any personal information you submit to them. We encourage you to read their privacy policies before submitting your personal information.

If you have a dispute with one or more third parties, including other users, you release us (and our officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes, including damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, privacy or data. We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to become involved in any way with these disputes. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code §1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him or her must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.” And, if you are not a California resident, you waive any applicable state statutes of a similar effect.

Please note this is different from User Submitted Content, which is addressed above. We reserve the right to copy, use, reproduce, modify, adapt, translate, publish, license, distribute, sell or assign the Submission in any way as it sees fit, including but not limited to copying in whole or in part, creating derivative works from, distributing and displaying any Submission in any form, media, or technology, whether now known or hereafter developed, alone or as part of other works, or using the Submission within or in connection with our products or Services.

We also reserve the right to pursue any additional remedies available in law or equity.

You agree that we may, for any reason and without notice to you, immediately terminate or otherwise restrict your access to the Services. We have no obligation to maintain, store, or transfer your Information including Your Submitted Content that you have posted on or uploaded to the Services.

The disclaimer of warranties, limitation of liability, jurisdictional, limitation of time to file claims, indemnification and arbitration provisions survive any termination.

18. Indemnification

You are solely legally liable if your use or misuse of the Services, any associated content, or any products and/or services delivered to you through the site causes damage to the Services, to you, or to someone or something else. You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless us, our affiliates, licensors and service providers, and our respective employees, contractors, officers, directors and agents from and against all liabilities, claims, damages, judgment, awards, losses, costs, expenses, fines or fees (including attorney's fees and investigation costs), that arise from or relate to your use or misuse of the Services, or violation of these Terms or violation of a third party’s rights. We reserve the right, at our own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, in which event you will cooperate with us in asserting any available defenses.

19. Limitation on Time to File Claims

Any cause of action or claim you may have arising out of or relating to these Terms or the Services must be commenced within one (1) year after the cause of action accrues, otherwise, such cause of action is permanently barred.

20. Choice of Law

You agree that the laws of the State of New York and U.S. federal law govern these Terms, your use of the Services, and any claim or dispute that you may have against us, without regard to New York’s conflict of laws rules. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to this Agreement.

21. Binding Arbitration and Jurisdiction

In the rare event you have a dispute with us, we encourage you to contact us immediately so we can work together toward a satisfactory resolution. If we cannot come to a resolution, you agree that any claims, disputes, demands, counts, controversies, or causes of action between you and us arising out of or relating to these Terms, the Services, including the enforceability of these Terms or our Privacy Policy or information practices will be finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration on an individual basis only (except as stated below). The arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding, unless we provide express prior written consent.

YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU ARE WAIVING YOUR RIGHT TO HAVE YOUR CLAIMS HEARD IN COURT BY A JUDGE OR JURY. AN ARBITRATION AWARD IS AS ENFORCEABLE AS A COURT ORDER AND IS SUBJECT TO ONLY LIMITED REVIEW BY A JUDGE. YOU ALSO UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION PREVENTS YOU FROM PARTICIPATING AS A PLAINTIFF OR AS A CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.

Arbitration will be subject to the Federal Arbitration Act, and shall be commenced and conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes, as amended by this provision, by one arbitrator that is acceptable to both parties. You can find out more about AAA and how to file an arbitration claim at www.adr.org or by calling 800-778-7879.

Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by the AAA rules and, where appropriate, limited by the AAA Consumer Rules. In the event you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, we will pay as much of your filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent arbitration from being cost-prohibitive. In such case, we will make arrangements to pay all necessary fees directly to the AAA. If the arbitrator determines the claim(s) you assert in the arbitration are frivolous, you agree to reimburse us for all fees associated with the arbitration paid by us on your behalf, which you otherwise would be obligated to pay under the AAA’s rules.

The arbitration will be conducted through written submission, unless the arbitrator determines that a telephonic hearing is required. Except as otherwise provided in these Terms, you and we may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator. In the event this arbitration provision is held unenforceable by a court, or in the event AAA refuses to arbitrate the dispute, all controversies, disputes, demands, counts, claims, or causes of action between you and us shall be exclusively brought in the state or federal courts of New York.

22. Severability and Integration

These Terms and any supplemental terms, policies, rules and guidelines posted on the Services constitute the entire agreement between you and us. If any part of the Terms is held invalid or unenforceable, that portion shall be construed in a manner consistent with applicable law to reflect, as nearly as possible, the original intentions of the parties, and the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect. The paragraph headings used herein are for convenience only and shall not be used to limit any portion of these Terms of Service.

23. General Provisions

You may not assign these Terms without our prior written approval. We may assign these Terms without your consent to: (i) a subsidiary or affiliate; (ii) an acquirer of our business or assets; or (iii) a successor by merger. Any purported assignment in violation of this section shall be void. No joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and us as a result of these Terms or your use of the Services. Our failure to enforce any right or provision in these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to by us in writing.
