Termination Policy For Users that Infringe on Copyright
or Intellectual Property Rights Of Others
Passion Inc., Simplication and all of our affiliated companies respect the
intellectual property of others, and we ask our users, account holders and content
partners to do the same. The unauthorized reproduction, copying, distribution, modification,
public display or public performance of copyrighted works constitutes infringement
of the copyright owner's rights. As a condition to your use of this Web Site, you
agree not to use the Web Site or any other Passion Inc. Site to infringe upon the
intellectual property rights of others. We will terminate the accounts of any account
holder, and block access to our Web Site and/or the other Passion Inc. Sites for
any user, who is a repeat infringer of the copyrights, or other intellectual property
rights, of others. We reserve the right to take these actions at any time, in our
sole discretion, with or without notice, and without any liability to the account
holder who is terminated or to the user whose access is blocked.
Simplication is an application management and job posting system. It does
not screen or censor the listings offered. The Company is not involved in the actual
transaction between employers and applicants. As a result, the Company has no control
over the quality, safety or legality of the jobs posted, the truth or accuracy of
the listings, the ability of employers to offer job opportunities to applicants
or the ability of applicants to fill job openings. In addition, note that there
are risks, including but not limited to the risk of physical harm, of dealing with
strangers, foreign nationals, underage persons or people acting under false pretenses.

release the Company (and our agents and employees) from claims, demands and damages
(actual and consequential, direct and indirect) of every kind and nature, known
and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of
or in any way connected with such disputes. If you are a California resident, you
waive California Civil Code d1542, 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.

provided by other users which is made available through the Web Site and/or the
other Passion Inc. Sites. By its very nature, other people's information may be
