Job Board
Terms of Use

Last revised on September 9, 2021

By using any job board service (“Job Board”) found on Axios.com or its local affiliate websites (each a “Site”) you agree to these Job Board Terms (“Terms”).  This is a binding legal contract between you and Axios Media Inc. (“AXIOS Media”, "we", or "us"), and you should read it carefully before using the Job Board.

The Job Board is part of the Site, and as such is subject to the Site’s Privacy Policy and Terms of Use. The Job Board is considered a “Service” under the Site Terms of Use, and all terms applicable to Services under the Site Terms of Use will apply to your use of the Job Board. If there is a conflict between the Site Terms of Use and these Terms, these Terms will control solely with regard to the Job Board Service.  BE AWARE THAT THE SITE TERMS OF USE CONTAIN AN ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, WHICH AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS IN THE EVENT OF A DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND AXIOS MEDIA, INCLUDING A DISPUTE ARISING OUT OF YOUR USE OF THE JOB BOARD. YOU SHOULD CAREFULLY REVIEW SECTION 8.2 OF THE SITE TERMS OF USE BEFORE USING THE JOB BOARD SERVICE. 

To use the Job Board, you must be at least eighteen (18) years of age or the age of majority in the jurisdiction in which you reside.  If you are using the Job Board to submit an advertisement for an open job position (a “Job Post”), you are a “Job Poster” and should pay special attention to the Terms Specific to Job Posters. If you are using the Job Board to search, view and apply for jobs, you are a “Job Seeker” and should pay special attention to the Terms Specific to Job Seekers.  The General Terms are applicable to both Job Posters and Job Seekers. 

  1. Authority.  If you are submitting a Job Post on behalf of a business, organization, agency, institution, or other entity (“Employer”), then you are agreeing to these Terms on the Employer’s behalf and represent and warrant that you are an authorized representative of the Employer with the authority to bind the Employer under this contract. Throughout these Terms, the word “you” refers to both you personally and the Employer. 
  2. Contents of Job Posts.  You are solely responsible and liable for the contents of your Job Post. You may only submit Job Posts that represent real and current job openings. Your Job Post must comply with all applicable local, state and federal laws, rules and regulations, including but not limited to laws relating to anti-discrimination, labor and employment, equal employment opportunity and employment eligibility requirements.  You warrant that your Job Post, and any other information that you provide to AXIOS Media in connection with your Job Post, is legal, complete, legitimate, truthful, accurate, non-infringing and not misleading.  AXIOS Media disclaims all liability for the contents of your Job Posts. 
  3. Publishing a Job Post.  Once submitted, Job Posts are typically published within five (5) business days or fewer.  You will receive a confirmation email with a receipt once your Job Post is published. AXIOS Media reserves the right to reject any Job Post in its sole discretion and to provide a refund of fees as your sole remedy for such rejection.  AXIOS Media reserves the right to make non-material edits to your Job Post, such as fixing typos or misspellings, without prior notice to or consent from you. AXIOS Media’s acceptance and publishing of a Job Post does not represent any guarantee or warranty that the Job Post is non-infringing, in compliance with applicable laws, rules or regulations, or otherwise compliant with these Terms. 
  4. Job Post Benefits.  Job Posts will be posted on the Job Board for 60 days (the “Listing Period”).  In addition, Job Posts published on an Axios Local Site will be advertised in at least one edition of the applicable Axios Local newsletter during the Listing Period. If your Job Post is not advertised in the applicable Axios Local newsletter during the Listing Period, your sole remedy will be to request a “make good” Job Post advertisement to be run in a future newsletter. 
  5. Billing Policies.   By submitting a Job Post and providing your credit card or debit card information, you authorize us to charge your debit card for credit card (“Payment Method”) for the applicable fees, along with any applicable taxes, and you agree to accept an electronic record of a receipt.  If acting on behalf of an Employer, you represent that you are authorized to use the Payment Method on the Employer’s behalf. By providing any Payment Method, you agree that certain credit card, debit card and billing information may be shared with AXIOS Media’s payment processor and other necessary service providers.  While in most cases transactions are completed without difficulty, there is no such thing as perfect security on the Internet or offline. If you are concerned about online credit card safety, in most cases a telephone number will be made available so you can call us and place your order by phone. The Site cannot and does not take responsibility for the success or security of transactions processed by third parties. AXIOS Media may also share this information with law enforcement authorities in response to subpoenas, court orders, and search warrants.  If AXIOS Media cannot charge your Payment Method for any reason, AXIOS Media reserves all rights permissible under law to recover payment,  and you will be responsible for all costs and expenses incurred, including reasonable attorneys' fees, in our pursuit of payment. You explicitly agree that all communication in relation to amounts due and unpaid will be made by electronic mail or by phone. Such communication may be made by AXIOS Media or by anyone on its behalf, including but not limited to a third-party collection agent.
  6. No Refunds.  Job Post fees are non-cancellable and non-refundable.  If you wish to remove a Job Post before the end of the Listing Period, you may contact [email protected] to request its removal.  You will not receive any refund even if you remove a Job Post prior to the end of its Listing Period.  
  7. Rights and Licenses.  By submitting a Job Post, you expressly grant to AXIOS Media a royalty-free, perpetual, transferable, sublicensable (through multiple layers of sublicensees), non-exclusive, worldwide license to use, reproduce, adapt, translate, sublicense, and publicly display your Job Post on the Job Board and in the applicable Axios Local newsletter. This license extends to all contents of the Job Post, including any logo, trademark, trade name, service mark or service name (“Marks”) included in, or provided for use in connection with, your Job Post.  You represent and warrant that you have the rights, power and authority necessary to grant the rights described above and that our use of your Job Post and Marks will not violate any law or infringe the rights of any third party, including but not limited to rights of privacy, publicity or intellectual property. 
  8. Adjacent Advertising. You understand that advertisements may be displayed adjacent to your Job Post and that you are not entitled to any compensation or revenue share in association with such advertisements. AXIOS Media makes no guarantees regarding the subject matter, nature or quality of the advertisements displayed on the Site adjacent to Job Posts.  
  9. Violations and Removals. You acknowledge and agree that AXIOS Media may, with no liability or penalty, remove any Job Posts which it determines, in its sole discretion: (a) violates these Terms; (b) is false, inaccurate, misleading, deceptive, fraudulent, libelous, defamatory, immoral, offensive, obscene, pornographic, disruptive, threatening, abusive or in violation of any applicable law, rule or regulation; or (c)  may violate or lead to the violation of the rights of, or harms or threatens the safety and privacy of any third party.  Additionally, AXIOS Media may refuse to accept and publish future Job Posts if any of your previous Job Posts were removed for any of the foregoing reasons.  You understand and accept that you will not receive any credit or refund for Job Posts removed or cancelled pursuant to this provision.   
  10. Job Poster Disclaimers. AXIOS Media does not make any guarantees regarding the number of views, clicks, shares or other Job Seeker interactions that your Job Post may receive. AXIOS Media does not guarantee that your Job Post will generate any specific number of applicants or candidates, or that the applicants or candidates it does generate will be suitable for the position posted.  You understand and agree that AXIOS Media does not, and cannot, confirm the identity or qualifications of the Job Seekers that may access or respond to your Job Posts. You are solely responsible and liable for your interactions with Job Seekers who you may encounter by virtue of your Job Posts, and you assume all risks for such interactions. 

  1. Job Seeker Disclaimer. AXIOS Media does not have control over the quality, accuracy, completeness, veracity or legality of Job Posts. You understand and agree that AXIOS Media has no responsibility and assumes no liability for any Job Post posted on the Job Board or for the actions of any Job Poster.  If you are concerned about the legitimacy, legality or safety of any Job Post you find on the Job Board, you should send an email to [email protected]. Please note that AXIOS Media is not required to take down any Job Post even if notified of a potential concern, and that any failure or refusal to remove such Job Post will not create any duty of care or any liability on the part of AXIOS Media.

Please note that there are risks that may arise when dealing with strangers online and in-person, including but not limited to the risk of identity theft or physical harm.
