For details about your rights in respect to “your information”, please refer to the Privacy Policy.

Login & Password Information

The Company takes reasonable means and follows industry best practices in providing secure password processes and a secure Website and business environment for using the parts of the Services that require password authentication. As part of the security of the Services, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your login and password information.

Notwithstanding any closure of your User account and deletion of your Profile, the Company reserves the right and has a legal obligation to retain certain User information for a period of time as part of its regular business practices and in accordance with governing law.

Disclaimer of Warranties

As a User of the Services, whether as a Website Visitor, job seeker, employer, or any other type of User, you understand and acknowledge that any use of the Website and/or the Services or reliance on the Materials is at your sole risk.

The Website and the Services are provided on an “as is” basis for informational purposes and for the convenience of Users posting job opportunities and/or seeking employment.

The Company expressly disclaims any and all representations and warranties, including without limitation any implied warranties and conditions, as to the completeness, legality, reliability, operability, availability, merchantability, quality, and/or fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement condition of the Materials and Services.

The Credit Union Careers Website and Services are provided as a venue, among other things,
for job seekers and employers to share information about job opportunities and job
qualifications. The Company does not screen or censor the postings by any Users
or Third Parties as part of its regular business practices. As a result, the Company
disclaims any responsibility as to the accuracy, quality, or legality of information
posted to the website. Therefore, by using the Services you assume all risks associated
with coming into contact with or communicating with other Users, including but not
limited to risk of physical harm of dealing with strangers, foreign nationals, underage
persons, people acting under false pretenses, or anyone else you may encounter as
a result of using the Services.

As User authentication via automated website services is challenging and uncertain, and because the Company does not vet each User for validity, the Company cannot, and does not, guarantee the authenticity of Users and their communications. No part of the Services includes implied, intended or actual involvement in User-to-User dealings now or in the future. In the event that you have a dispute with one or more Users, you release the Company and it agents, partners, affiliates, employees, and associated third parties with the Services from all claims, demands and damages of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with User-to-User disputes.

Except as captured in other legal arrangements related to the Services that are separate from these Terms and Conditions, the provision of the Services to Users does not constitute a legal or commercial relationship of any type, be it lawyer-client, advisory, fiduciary, or other relationship.

Moreover, while various industry standard precautions are taken to ensure the security and availability of the Services, the Company does not warrant that the Website will operate continuously at all times without interruptions to the Services, nor that the Website and Services will operate error-free, virus free, or free from other harmful mechanisms, be they trojans, worms, or other malicious software.

Any Materials available on the Website or through the Services that relate to legal matters as regards to employment or any other matter, including any material provided by Third Parties, is not intended to be legal advice of any kind. Nor is the information about persons, companies or other entities warranted to be accurate or up to date. No one should act, or refrain from acting, based solely upon this or other information on the Website without first seeking appropriate legal or other professional advice.

The Services are intended only for Users who reside or are otherwise offering or seeking employment in Canada. Some provinces and other Canadian jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties, so the exclusions may not apply to you. Likewise, it is also possible that you may have other rights with regards to your use of the services that vary from province to province and from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.

Notwithstanding possible differences in law as indicated above, as a corporation operating from the province of British Columbia (BC), the Company maintains the validity of these Terms and Conditions within the laws of all jurisdictions in Canada and BC.

Choice of Law & Venue

Central 1 Credit Union is a Canadian corporation operating from the Province of British Columbia (BC). Likewise, the Website and Services of the Company are provided from within Canada and BC, including all data servers and storage, communications processes, IP addresses and any other tools, protocols, and processes required to provide the Services. As such, the Company not only makes no representation or warranty as to the appropriateness or availability of the Website and/or Services for use at any locations outside Canada, but also cautions that if you access the website from outside Canada, you are responsible for compliance with all local laws.

A variety of free tools, such as Google Reader, are readily available on the internet for monitoring updates to specific web pages, and having notifications sent automatically to your email inbox. While Credit Union Careers in no way endorses or requires the use of
any such products as a condition of the Terms of Service, the Company does wish
to point out that with or without such convenient tools for monitoring web page
updates, not being aware of the latest changes to the Terms of Service does not
constitute any exemption from or waiver of their enforceability.

Arbitration

Any and all disputes found to have legal merit arising out of your use of the Website, Services, or about the Terms and Conditions of the Services themselves, whether related to the performance, breach, enforcement, existence or validity of the Services, or any failure of the parties to reach agreement with respect to matters provided for in these Terms and Conditions and all matters of dispute relating to the rights and obligations of the parties, which cannot be amicably resolved, even if only one of the parties declares that there is a difference, will be referred to and finally settled by private and confidential binding arbitration before a single arbitrator holding proceedings in English at a location of the Company''s choice in the Province of British Columbia (BC).

Notwithstanding the above indications about legal proceedings as regards disputes about the Services, each party may pursue the protection of intellectual property rights and confidential information through injunctive or other equitable relief through the courts of BC only.
