Organizations may have executed a Software as a Service Agreement (“SaaS”) with Great Recruiters which governs such firm’s use of the services on the Great Recruiters Platform.
For all users, including without limitation employees, contractors, and agents of client firms who are provided access to the Platform under a SaaS agreement with Great Recruiters, by accessing greatrecruiters.com or using any of the services on the Great Recruiters Platform, you hereby acknowledge and agree to each of the provisions detailed in the Terms below:
If you are accessing the Services under a valid subscription provided by Great Recruiters, the Services and your access are licensed to you, not sold to you. You may not use the Services for any other purpose or manner except as provided in these Terms or an applicable SaaS with a Client organization;
Access and the Services are provided “as is” without warranties of any kind whatsoever, and Great Recruiters’ liability to you is very limited;
Client organizations are solely responsible for exporting their data and related User Content before the termination date of their applicable SaaS Agreement, unless otherwise expressly agreed; and
Any disputes arising from or related to any user’s access or usage of the services provided hereunder will be resolved by binding arbitration. Further, by accessing the website you accept these terms which include your waiver to a trial by jury and to participate in a class-action lawsuit. You agree to give up your right to seek redress or defend your rights in court as provided in these Terms. You understand and agree that a neutral arbitrator, not a judge or jury, shall determine the parties’ rights. Your claim against Great Recruiters, its officers, directors, agents, and employees cannot be brought in court or as a member of any class action. Please review the agreement provisions requiring both parties to arbitrate in the Terms below for specific details regarding our mutual agreement in this respect.
The data and information available on Great Recruiters’ website are for job candidates seeking capable recruiters to market their skills to hiring managers or perhaps to review recruiters and staffing firms with whom such candidate has had meaningful interaction during their job search. Job candidates may use the Great Recruiters’ website and related resources to research, interface, and review staffing firms and individual recruiters. The collective resources and services available to job candidates, hiring managers,
and Clients on the Great Recruiters’ website and other sources shall be referred to herein as the “GR Network” or “Services” as applicable.
The GR Network is not a “stand–alone” application. Public users may only access the basic information on the public web pages and may not access or download all necessary data or component information on the GR network unless authorized by a Client or with Great Recruiters’ approval of their registration upon acceptance of these Terms.
Registration, the entry of any personal information (e.g., name, email), and any documents, reviews, or responses to inquiries may create a user profile that the specified Client can rely upon to manage its relationship with job candidates, hiring managers, and other people involved in the process. If you indicate that such information should be anonymous, Great Recruiters will maintain such anonymity in accordance with these Terms.
These Terms govern all users who access the GR Network and create a binding legal agreement that we may enforce in the event of a violation of these Terms. By accessing the website or any part of the GR Network, you agree to these Terms, regardless of whether you are a “registered” user or not. These Terms govern your use of Great Recruiters’ website and the GR Network. If you do not agree to every provision of these Terms, do not use the GR Network and leave the website immediately.
Candidate and Reviewer Profile Registration
To match job candidates with a recruiter or staffing firm or otherwise submit a review, you may provide us with your name, email address, and other data relevant to using the GR Network in your job search (“Registration Information”). You may select a username and password that will be associated with your registration. You represent and agree that your Registration Information is true, accurate, current, and complete at the time that you provide it to Great Recruiters. You agree to promptly update your Registration Information if necessary or requested so that it continues to be true, accurate, current, and complete. We reserve the right, for ourselves and our Clients, to verify the accuracy of the Registration Information you have provided and unilaterally update it, as necessary. You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and security of your account username and password, and you may not permit another person to use your username and password to access the Services. You are responsible for all activity that occurs under your account. If you believe that the security of your account information has been compromised, you must immediately change your username and password through the account settings feature and notify us, and we will assist you as necessary. Great Recruiters shall have no liability for unauthorized access to or use of your account information.

The GR Network is intended to assist recruiting and staffing firms in managing their relationships with both job candidates and hiring managers by gathering reviews and performance data from job search and placement activities.

We, our licensors, our suppliers, or any third parties contributing to the delivery of the Services shall not be liable for any personal injury, including death, caused by your use or misuse of the GR Network or any information provided through the GR Network. Any claims arising in connection with your use of the GR Network or Services must be brought within one (1) year of the date of the occurrence of the events giving rise to such cause of action. Remedies under these Terms are exclusive and are hereby limited to those remedies expressly provided for in these Terms. The limitations of damages set forth above are fundamental to these Terms and a material element comprising the basis of the agreement between you and Great Recruiters.
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Great Recruiters, its corporate affiliates, independent contractors, service providers and consultants, and each of their respective directors, employees and agents, from and against any claims, damages, costs, liabilities and expenses (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising out of or related to any User Content you post, store or otherwise transmit on or through the Services or your use of or inability to use the Services, including without limitation any actual or threatened suit, demand, or claim arising out of or relating to such User Content, your conduct, your violation of these Terms or your violation of the rights of any third party.
At our sole discretion, Great Recruiters reserves the right to modify, discontinue, or terminate the GR Network or Services, any User Content, and these Terms at any time and without prior notice. However, if we materially modify these Terms, we shall provide notice of such modification within the GR Network at the email address that you provided.

not acceptable to you, you agree to immediately stop using the GR Network and provide notice of rejection of such modified Terms.
These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between Great Recruiters and you regarding the use of the GR Network. These Terms supersede and replace all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between Great Recruiters and you regarding the use of the GR Network and the Services.
You may not assign or transfer these Terms or your registration, by operation of law or otherwise, without Great Recruiters’ prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms without such consent shall be null and void and of no legal effect. We may assign or transfer these Terms, at our sole discretion, without restriction.

Mutual Agreement to Arbitrate
In the interest of resolving disputes arising from these Terms or the relationship between Great Recruiters, Clients, and you in a practical and cost-effective manner, you and Great Recruiters each agree that all disputes arising in connection with the use of the GR Network or Services related to these Terms will be resolved by binding arbitration. Such arbitration can be more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can generally award the same damages and relief that a court may award. Our agreement to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of these Terms, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether a claim arises during or after the termination of this Agreement or these Terms. YOU UNDERSTAND AND EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT YOU AND GREAT RECRUITERS ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
Despite the provisions above, we agree that nothing in these Terms shall be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit the right of either party: (a) bring an individual action in small claims court or for the collection of a delinquent account exceeding ninety (90) days; (b) pursue law enforcement action through a federal, state, or local enforcement agency, if such course of action is available; (c) seek injunctive relief in court but not as a member of a class action; or (d) to file suit in court to address a specific intellectual property infringement claim.
Any arbitration action involving you and Great Recruiters under these Terms shall be governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes, as the case may be (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”).
Notice and Service of Process. Any party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other, by certified mail or Federal Express (signature required), or if we do not have a physical address on file for you, by electronic mail (“Notice”). Great Recruiters’ address for Notice is: Great Recruiters, Attention Office of Legal Counsel, 431 Stephenson Highway, Troy, MI 48083.
The Notice must describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and include the specific relief sought (“Demand”). We agree to use good faith efforts to resolve the claim before submitting the matter to arbitration; however, if Great Recruiters and the claimant do not reach a resolution within 30 days after Great Recruiters receives the Notice, then either party may commence the arbitration proceeding as provided in the applicable AAA Rules.
Location and Fees. Each party will pay its own filing costs and fees as provided in the AAA Rules. Any arbitration hearing must take place at a location to be agreed upon in Oakland County, Michigan. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the demands made are frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules relating to such a finding, and you agree to reimburse Great Recruiters for any monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. Regardless of how the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the preceding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.
No Class Actions. YOU AND GREAT RECRUITERS AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED OR ACTUAL CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Great Recruiters otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one party’s claims, and such arbitrator may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
If the immediately preceding paragraph is found to be unenforceable, or if the entirety of this section related to the agreement to arbitrate is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this section will be null and void and, in which case, the parties agree that to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Oakland County and Southeastern Michigan or the venue specified elsewhere in these Terms, which shall govern any action arising out of or related to these Terms or the Services.
Any notices or other communications permitted or required hereunder, including those regarding material modifications to these Terms, will be in a written form and given: (i) by us via email (in each case to the email address included in the applicable registration information); or (ii) by posting within or on the GR Network as permitted hereunder. For notices made by e-mail, the date of receipt will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.
Great Recruiters’ failure to enforce any right or provision in these Terms, at law, or in equity will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of such rights or provisions. Except as expressly set forth in
these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to any other remedies under these Terms that a party may have available.
All provisions of these Terms shall survive termination of your GR Network registration except for your license to access the GR Network and use the Services, User Content, or Great Recruiters’ Content.

By submitting feedback and suggestions, you grant a non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, and royalty-free license to any intellectual property rights you may have in your feedback and suggestions to us to use to improve the GR Network.
