PLEASE READ THE TERMS CAREFULLY BEFORE SUBMITTING A POST TO BE PUBLISHED ON THE JOB BOARD, AND DO NOT USE THE JOB BOARD OR OUR JOB BOARD SERVICES IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS.
Job Board Services
Duckbill hosts a Job Board on its website that is publicly available to anyone on the Internet; no subscription or login is needed to view the Job Board. If you wish to post an employment opportunity for your entity or organization on the Job Board (a “Post”), you can submit the Post to Duckbill for publication and, subject to these Terms, Duckbill will publish the Post on the Job Board (“Job Board Services”).
By submitting a Post to Duckbill, you represent, warrant, and agree that:
- All information in the Post is correct, current, and complete.
- You are legally permitted to publish all content in the Post on the Job Board.
- The Post does not include any confidential, proprietary, or private information of you or any third party or individual.
- The Post does not infringe on any third party rights, including, but not limited to, right to privacy or intellectual property rights.
- You have consulted with an attorney about the legal requirements for your Post and your Post meets all federal, state, local, and other legal requirements.
Duckbill may, but is not obligated to, review a Post before publishing it on the Job Board, but Duckbill will not verify any of the information in or the legality of the Post. We reserve the right to refuse to publish a Post to the Job Board or modify or remove any postings on the Job Board in our sole discretion.
Content of Posts
You are responsible for all content in your Posts; Duckbill shall have no liability or responsibility for any content in your Posts or for the publication of your Post on the Job Board. Depending on the details of your organization, such as number of employees, type of business activities, employment location, etc., there may be local, state, or federal laws, regulations, or ordinances that apply to your Posts. DUCKBILL IS NOT AN ATTORNEY AND DOES NOT PROVIDE LEGAL ADVICE OR LEGAL REVIEW REGARDING THE SUFFICIENCY OR CONTENT OF YOUR POSTS. Consult an attorney regarding the content of your Post before submitting it for publication on the Job Board.
We are not responsible, or liable to any third party, for the content or accuracy of any of your content or the content of another user on the Job Board.
The Job Board is merely a public platform for posting and viewing employment opportunities, and all communications between you and viewers of your Posts, including applicants, are solely between you and the user outside of the Job Board Services, such as through the phone number or email address you include in your Post. Duckbill does not vet, verify, or otherwise monitor any user or viewer of the Job Board. You are solely responsible for taking all necessary and desirable actions to determine if an applicant or respondent to a Post is suitable for the position and for following applicable laws. Be safe and do not provide private or confidential information to any Job Board user without proper verification and background research (as permitted by law). Duckbill is not responsible for the acts or omissions of any Job Board user.
You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Duckbill and its affiliates, licensors, and service providers, and its and their respective officers, directors, employees, contractors, agents, licensors, suppliers, successors, and assigns from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, judgments, awards, losses, costs, expenses, or fees (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising out of or relating to (i) your violation of these Terms, including, but not limited to, your breach of any representation or warranty herein, (ii) your use of the Job Board or Job Board Services, including, but not limited to, your Posts and the content therein, (iii) your hiring, firing, or any other act or omission related to an applicant, employee, contractor, or other service provider who responded to your Post on the Job Board, or (iv) any use of the Job Board or Job Board Services other than as expressly authorized in these Terms.
Duckbill may charge fees to use the Job Board, either for the employers or the job seekers. These fees will be listed on Duckbill’s website.
Duckbill reserves the right to modify its fee structure at any time and without advanced notice. Modifications are effective as soon as they are published on Duckbill’s website and are applicable to all subsequent transactions. In the case of temporary modifications, the duration of the changes will be clearly indicated on Duckbill’s website.
By submitting a Post for publication on the Job Board, you grant us and our affiliates and service providers, and each of their and our respective licensees, successors, and assigns a worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, transferrable, sublicensable, royalty-free license to sublicense, use, reproduce, copy, modify, create derivative works of, publicly perform, publicly display, distribute, and otherwise disclose to third parties and/or exploit in any manner any such material for the Job Board Services.
Additionally, you represent and warrant that you own or control all rights in and to the content in your Posts and have the right to grant the license granted above.

These Terms remain in full force and effect while you use the Job Board in any manner. All provisions of the Terms shall survive termination by either party, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, disclaimers, indemnity, and disclaimers.
In the event that you provide us any ideas, thoughts, criticisms, suggested improvements, or other feedback related to the Job Board (collectively “Feedback”), you agree we may use the Feedback to: (a) improve the Job Board and Job Board Services, and (b) promote the Job Board and Job Board Services, and that you will not be due any compensation for your Feedback that is used in these ways. To the extent that we have your name, likeness, or voice, this will be part of the Feedback and you agree that we may use your name, likeness and voice in the same manner that we can use other Feedback. You grant to us a worldwide, royalty-free, fully paid, perpetual, irrevocable license to use, reproduce, modify, translate, distribute, perform, display, import, sell, offer for sale, make, have made and otherwise exploit the Feedback in any form, media, or technology, whether now known or hereafter developed, and to allow others to do the same.

Subject to the licenses set forth in these Terms, the original submitter of a Post retains all right, title, and ownership of and to the content of such Post. Otherwise, the Job Board, the Duckbill website, and its entire contents, features, and functionality (including, but not limited to, all information, software, text, displays, images, video and audio, logos, designs, slogans, and the design, selection, and arrangement thereof), are owned by Duckbill, its licensors, or other providers of such material and are protected by United States and international copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret, and other intellectual property or proprietary rights laws.

- A statement, under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner.
If you fail to comply with all of these requirements, your DMCA Notice may not be effective. Additionally, if you knowingly misrepresent that material or activity on the Platform is infringing your copyright, you may be held liable for damages under Section 512(f) of the DMCA.
It is our policy in appropriate circumstances to disable and/or terminate the accounts of users who are repeat infringers.

Any dispute between Duckbill and you arising under these Terms will be submitted to binding arbitration in San Francisco County, California, in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association.
Waiver and Severability
No waiver by Duckbill of any term or condition set forth in these Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition, and any failure of Duckbill to assert a right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
If any provision of these Terms is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be eliminated or limited to the minimum extent such that the remaining provisions of the Terms will continue in full force and effect.
