The Website, the App and any feature, content, tool and service accessible through the Website or App are collectively referred to as the “Service.”
The Service primarily consists of a website and downloadable mobile phone application for companies to post jobs and find potential candidates for the job and for users to refer their peers and compete with other social referrers to earn rewards benefitting their favorite charities.
Subject to the terms, conditions and limitations set forth in these Terms, peercisely hereby grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable and revocable license to access and use the Service for your personal and internal business use only, except as otherwise specifically permitted under a written agreement entered into with peercisely.

Your use of the Service, including any Interactive Areas, is at your own risk. Enforcement of the user content and conduct rules set forth in these Terms is solely at peercisely’s discretion, and failure to enforce such rules in some instances does not constitute a waiver of our right to enforce such rules in other instances. In addition, these rules do not create any private right of action on the part of any third party or any reasonable expectation that the Service will not contain any content that is prohibited by these rules.
peercisely may display, include or make available content, data, information, applications or materials from third parties (collectively the "Third Party Content"). peercisely does not control, warrant, endorse or adopt any Third Party Content and does not assume and will not have any liability or responsibility to you or any other person for any third-party services, Third Part Content, or web sites, or for any other materials, products, or services of third parties. You acknowledge and agree that peercisely is not responsible or liable in any manner for any Third Party Content and is not responsible for examining or evaluating the content, accuracy, completeness, timeliness, validity, copyright compliance, legality, decency, quality or any other aspect of such Third Party Materials or web sites. Users use such Third Party Content contained therein at their own risk.
peercisely may also run advertisements and promotions from third parties on the Website or in the App or may otherwise provide information about or links to other third-party products or services. Any purchases or other transactions or actions made on or through links accessed from the Website or App are solely between the user and the third party from whom the purchase was made (the "Third-Party Seller"). Any business dealings, interactions or correspondence with, or participation in promotions of such Third Party Seller, and any terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with such purchases, dealings or promotions, are also solely between the user and such Third-Party Seller. peercisely is not responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as the result of any such third-party purchases, dealings, interactions, advertising or promotions or as the result of the presence of such third party information or content on the Website or in the App.
You understand that by using any of the Services or Third Party Content, You may encounter content that may be deemed offensive, indecent, or objectionable, which content may or may not be identified as having explicit language, and that the results of any search or entering of a particular URL may automatically and unintentionally generate links or references to objectionable material. Nevertheless, you agree to use the Services at Your sole risk and that the Application Provider shall not have any liability to you for content that may be found to be offensive, indecent, or objectionable.
Parts of the Services, for example posting a job, are offered for a fee. Prices for such Services within the Website and the App may be displayed in a currency, e.g. coins, used only within the Website and/or App (“In-App-Coins”). Such In-App-Coins can be purchased within the Website and App using a third party payment service that is integrated into the Website and App. Portions of certain payments made will benefit select charity organizations, previously vetted by peercisely. The exact amount each charity receives depends on the quantity of peercisely users supporting their cause, and the quality of their referrals.
In connection with your payment for Services within the Website or the App, you acknowledge that: (a) peercisely is not responsible for any error by the third party payment service, and
(b) the posted prices for the Services include taxes, where applicable, and are deemed part of this Agreement.

your credit card company; (iii) you will pay the charges incurred by you at the posted prices, including any applicable taxes, and (iv) that you agree to any terms, conditions and privacy policies of the third party payment service.
peercisely encourages users posting jobs, social referrers and potential candidates to be as accurate as possible when generating User Content, such as job descriptions or candidate information. However, peercisely does not warrant that the Service or the User Content is complete, reliable, current or error-free. If you have reason to believe that a job offered through the Service does not meet the job description within the Service or a job candidate does not meet the qualifications described within the Service or that any other information provided within the Services is incorrect, your sole remedy is to not accept the job or candidate and contact peercisely immediately at email@example.com, and in any case no later than seven business days following the date you became aware of the incorrect description within the Service. peercisely will make a determination as to the merits of your claim and whether or not to take reasonable steps to correct the information in our sole discretion.

YOU EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT USE OF THE SERVICE AND PRODUCTS IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK AND THAT THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO SATISFACTORY QUALITY, PERFORMANCE, ACCURACY AND EFFORT IS WITH YOU. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE SERVICES AND PRODUCTS ARE PROVIDED "AS IS" AND “AS AVAILABLE”, WITH ALL FAULTS AND WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, AND PEERCISELY HEREBY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS WITH RESPECT TO THE SERVICES AND PRODUCTS, EITHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES AND/OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, OF SATISFACTORY QUALITY, OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OF ACCURACY, OF QUIET ENJOYMENT, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT OF THIRD PARTY RIGHTS. PEERCISELY DOES NOT WARRANT AGAINST INTERFERENCE WITH YOUR ENJOYMENT OF SERVICES AND PRODUCTS, THAT THE FUNCTIONS CONTAINED THEREIN, OR SERVICES AND PRODUCTS PERFORMED OR PROVIDED WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS, THAT THE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE, OR THAT DEFECTS IN THE SERVICES WILL BE CORRECTED. NO ORAL OR WRITTEN INFORMATION OR ADVICE GIVEN BY PEERCISELY OR ITS AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE SHALL CREATE A WARRANTY. SHOULD THE SERVICES PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE ENTIRE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES
OR LIMITATIONS ON APPLICABLE STATUTORY RIGHTS OF A CONSUMER, SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSION AND LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

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 favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”

The Terms are effective until terminated by you or peercisely. Your rights under these Terms will terminate automatically without notice from peercisely if you fail to comply with any of the terms herein. Upon termination of the license, you shall cease all use of the Services, and destroy all copies, full or partial, of the App.
