7. Registration Information.
We offer two different types of Accounts: Student and Employer Accounts, collectively referred to as “Accounts.” You may only hold one type of account: either one Student or one Employer Account. This Agreement applies to both Accounts. When You register with any ProjectIntern Site, You will be asked to create a Employer or Student Account respectively and provide ProjectIntern with certain information including, without limitation, a valid email address (your "Information"). You have an affirmative obligation to provide ProjectIntern with a correct and operational email address. Information you submit will be used in accordance with ProjectIntern's Privacy Statement.

By creating your Account, You authorize ProjectIntern, directly or through third parties, to make any inquiries we consider necessary to validate Your identity and Your credit worthiness (if You have a ProjectIntern Payment Intermediary Subscriber Account). This may include asking You for further information, requiring You to take steps to confirm ownership of Your email address or financial instruments, ordering a credit report, performing credit checks and verifying Your Information against third party databases or through other sources. You agree to provide true, accurate and complete information and to maintain and promptly update Your information as applicable. If any information You provide is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, without limiting other remedies, ProjectIntern has the right to terminate Your use of the Service and ProjectIntern, its agents, suppliers, Students, and subcontractors have the right to recover from You any costs or losses incurred as a direct or indirect result of the untrue, inaccurate, not current, incomplete information.

In addition, third parties may retain cached copies of your Information.

You are solely responsible for Your Account information, internship postings, Profile, content (including, without limitation works in any form, media, or technology whether now known or later developed), messages, audio, video, photos, text, images, compilations or other information ("User Content") that You post on any ProjectIntern Site or transmit to other Users.

By posting User Content to any public area of any ProjectIntern Site, including without limitation, message boards, Profiles, forums, contests and chat rooms, You automatically grant to ProjectIntern and its affiliates an irrevocable, royalty-free, perpetual, fully paid non-exclusive right (including moral rights) and worldwide license to use, copy, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, communicate to the public, perform, display, and distribute such User Content (in whole or in part) and to prepare derivative works of, or incorporate into other works (in any form, media or technology now known or later developed, for the full term of any rights that may exist in such content) such User Content, and to grant and authorize sublicenses thereof (through multiple tiers).

You also represent and warrant that You have the right to grant and have completely and effectively waived all such rights and, where applicable, that the holder of the right has validly and irrevocably granted to You the right to grant, the license stated above. If you post User Content in any public area of any ProjectIntern Site, You also permit any User to access, display, view, store and reproduce such User Content for personal use. Subject to the foregoing, the owner of such User Content placed on any ProjectIntern Site retains any and all rights that may exist in such User Content.

ProjectIntern acts as a passive conduit for the online distribution and publication of User Content and has no obligation to screen User Content, communications or information in advance and is not responsible for screening or monitoring User Content posted by Users. However, ProjectIntern may review and remove any User Content that, in its sole judgment, violates these Terms, violates applicable laws, rules or regulations, is abusive, disruptive, offensive or illegal, or violates the rights of, or harms or threatens the safety of, Users of any ProjectIntern Site. ProjectIntern reserves the right to expel Users and prevent their further access to the ProjectIntern Sites and/or use of ProjectIntern services for violating the Terms or applicable laws, rules or regulations. ProjectIntern may take any action with respect to User Content that it deems necessary or appropriate in its sole discretion if it believes that such User Content could create liability for ProjectIntern, damage ProjectIntern’s brand or public image, or cause ProjectIntern to lose (in whole or in part) the services of its ISPs or other suppliers.

ProjectIntern does not represent or guarantee the truthfulness, accuracy, or reliability of User Content or any other communications posted by Users or endorse any opinions expressed by Users. You acknowledge that any reliance on material posted by other Users will be at your own risk.

Each candidate made available through the Skilled and Hourly section of ProjectIntern has taken skills interview(s) offered by ProjectIntern. The results of each skilled and hourly candidate's skills interview are not evaluated by ProjectIntern and should be evaluated by each employer based on such employer's specific criteria. The skills interview(s) are proprietary to ProjectIntern and may be changed from time to time in ProjectIntern's discretion. The skills interview(s) do not necessarily guarantee performance results or capture all criteria that may be relevant to an employer in making employment decisions. ProjectIntern does not independently verify the information provided by candidates or the identity of candidates.

ProjectIntern does not necessarily monitor any materials or content posted, transmitted, or communicated to or within the Site. If you believe that something on the Site violates these Terms please contact us at: ProjectIntern, LLC, Attention: Intermediary Payment Services, PO Box 1316, Huntersville, NC 28070.

You agree to immediately notify ProjectIntern of any unauthorized use of or access to your Account, Profile, passwords or ProjectIntern Payment Intermediary Subscriber Fund Account, if applicable.

11. Intellectual Property Rights
"ProjectIntern.com," "ProjectIntern," “VirtualProject” and all related logos, products and services described in our website are either trademarks or registered trademarks of ProjectIntern or its licensors. You may not copy, imitate or use them without ProjectIntern's prior written consent. In addition, all page headers, custom graphics, button icons, and scripts are service marks, trademarks, and/or trade dress of ProjectIntern. You may not copy, imitate, or use them without our prior written consent. You may use HTML logos provided by ProjectIntern through our Services or affiliate programs without prior written consent for the purpose of directing web traffic to the Service. You may not alter, modify or change these HTML logos in any way, use them in a manner that is disparaging to ProjectIntern or the Service or display them in any manner that implies ProjectIntern's sponsorship or endorsement.

Unless otherwise agreed to in writing, if You send us creative suggestions, ideas, drawings, concepts, inventions, or other information (collectively the "Submission"), the Submission shall be the property of ProjectIntern. None of the Submission shall be subject to any obligation of confidentiality on our part and we shall not be liable for any use or disclosure of any Submission. ProjectIntern shall own exclusively all now known or later discovered rights to the Submission and shall be entitled to unrestricted use of the Submission for any purpose whatsoever, commercial or otherwise, without compensation to You or any other person.

12. Privacy.
Protecting Your privacy is very important to ProjectIntern. Please review our Privacy Statement in order to better understand our commitment to maintaining Your privacy, as well as our use and disclosure of Your Information.

ProjectIntern reserves the right to offer third party services and products to You based on the preferences that You identify in your registration and at any time thereafter; such offers may be made by ProjectIntern or by third parties. Please see ProjectIntern's Privacy Statement, the terms of which are incorporated herein by reference, for further details regarding your Information.

If You receive Information about another ProjectIntern Employer or Student through the Service, You must keep the Information confidential and only use it in connection with the Service. You may not disclose or distribute a ProjectIntern Employer’s or Student's Information to a third party or use the Information for marketing purposes unless You receive that Employer’s or Student's express consent to do so.

13. ProjectIntern's Liability.
ProjectIntern acts as a service for Employers to post job opportunities and candidates to post resumes and Profiles and does not screen or censor the listings, including Profiles offered. ProjectIntern is not involved in the actual transaction between employers and candidates. As a result, ProjectIntern has no control over User Content, the quality, safety or legality of the jobs or resumes posted, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of employers to offer job opportunities to candidates or the ability of candidates to fill job openings and ProjectIntern makes no representations about any jobs, resumes or User Content on ProjectIntern. ProjectIntern may take any action with respect to User Content that it deems necessary or appropriate in its sole discretion if it believes that such User Content could create liability for ProjectIntern, damage ProjectIntern’s brand or public image, or cause ProjectIntern to lose (in whole or in part) the services of its ISPs or other suppliers. While ProjectIntern reserves the right in its sole discretion to remove User Content, job postings, resumes or other material from ProjectIntern from time to time, ProjectIntern does not assume any obligation to do so and disclaims any liability for failing to take any such action.

ProjectIntern Networking provides a venue for individuals to network for professional purposes and ProjectIntern does not screen or censor the Profiles or User Content on ProjectIntern. ProjectIntern is not involved in the actual communications between ProjectIntern Networking Users. As a result, ProjectIntern has no control over the accuracy, reliability, completeness, or timeliness of the Profiles or User Content submitted on ProjectIntern and makes no representations about any Profile or User Content on ProjectIntern.

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. You assume all risks associated with dealing with other Users with whom You come in contact through ProjectIntern and/or the other ProjectIntern Sites. By its very nature, other people's information may be offensive, harmful or inaccurate, and in some cases will be mislabeled or deceptively labeled. We expect that You will use caution and common sense when using ProjectIntern and/or the other ProjectIntern Sites.

Because User authentication on the Internet is difficult, ProjectIntern cannot and does not confirm that each User is who they claim to be. Because we do not and cannot be involved in User-to-User dealings or control the behavior of participants on any ProjectIntern Site, in the event that You have a dispute with one or more Users, You release ProjectIntern (and our agents and employees) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential and 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 Section 1542, which says: "A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him or her must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor."

The ProjectIntern Sites and the ProjectIntern Content may contain inaccuracies or typographical errors. ProjectIntern makes no representations about the accuracy, reliability, completeness, or timeliness of any ProjectIntern Site or the ProjectIntern Content. The use of all ProjectIntern Sites and the ProjectIntern Content is at your own risk. Changes are periodically made to ProjectIntern Sites and may be made at any time. You acknowledge and agree that You are solely responsible for the form, content and accuracy of any resume or material contained therein placed by You on the ProjectIntern Sites. Employers are solely responsible for their postings on ProjectIntern Sites. ProjectIntern is not to be considered to be an employer with respect to your use of any ProjectIntern Site and ProjectIntern shall not be responsible for any employment decisions, for whatever reason, made by any entity posting jobs on any ProjectIntern Site.

ProjectIntern cannot guarantee and does not promise any specific results from use of ProjectIntern or any ProjectIntern Site. No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained by a User from ProjectIntern or through or from ProjectIntern or any other ProjectIntern Site shall create any warranty not expressly stated herein.

14. Your Liability.
ProjectIntern, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to terminate this Agreement, access to its website, or access to the Service for any reason and at any time upon notice to You. If we close Your Account or terminate Your use of our Services for any reason, we will provide You with notice of our actions. If we limit access to Your Account, we will provide You with notice of our actions and the opportunity to request restoration of access if appropriate.

In order to ensure a safe and effective experience for all of our Users, ProjectIntern reserves the right to limit the amount of data (including Profiles) that may be accessed by You in any given time period. These limits may be amended in ProjectIntern’s sole discretion from time to time. Additionally, if You engage in any Prohibited Uses or activities or submit any Prohibited Content described herein, we may take various actions to protect ProjectIntern, a Student, a Employer, a third party, or You from Claims, fees, fines, penalties and any other liability. The actions we may take include but are not limited to the following:

  1. We may close, suspend, or limit Your access to Your Account or the Services (including ProjectIntern Payment Intermediary Services as applicable);
  2. We may contact Students who have worked on VirtualProjects for Employers, contact Employers from whom Students have worked on VirtualProjects, and warn other Students, Employers, law enforcement, or impacted third parties of Your actions;
  3. We may update inaccurate Information You provided us;
  4. We may refuse to provide our Services to You in the future; and
  5. We may take legal action against You and/or cooperate with, law enforcement authorities in prosecuting You and other Users who are involved in such violations.

IF YOUR USE OF ANY PROJECTINTERN SITE OR THE PROJECTINTERN CONTENT RESULTS IN THE NEED FOR SERVICING OR REPLACING EQUIPMENT OR DATA, PROJECTINTERN IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THOSE COSTS.

ProjectIntern does not have any control over the Students or the work they provide, and ProjectIntern cannot ensure that a Student that You hire will actually complete the project. ProjectIntern does not guarantee continuous, uninterrupted or secure access to our Service, and operation of our site may be interfered with by numerous factors outside of our control. ProjectIntern will make reasonable efforts to ensure that payments to Students are processed in a timely manner but ProjectIntern makes no representations or warranties regarding the amount of time needed to complete processing because our Service is dependent upon many factors outside of our control, such as delays in the banking system or the U.S. or international mail service.

16. Disclaimer of Consequential Damages.
IN NO EVENT SHALL PROJECTINTERN, ITS SUPPLIERS, OR ANY THIRD PARTIES MENTIONED ON ANY PROJECTINTERN SITE BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, INCIDENTAL AND CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, LOST PROFITS, OR DAMAGES RESULTING FROM LOST DATA OR EMPLOYER INTERRUPTION) RESULTING FROM THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE ANY PROJECTINTERN SITE AND THE PROJECTINTERN CONTENT, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, AND WHETHER OR NOT PROJECTINTERN IS ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

17. Limitation of Liability.
PROJECTINTERN'S MAXIMUM LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH ANY PROJECTINTERN SITE OR YOUR USE OF THE PROJECTINTERN CONTENT, REGARDLESS OF THE CAUSE OF ACTION (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, BREACH OF WARRANTY OR OTHERWISE), WILL NOT EXCEED $100.

18. Links to Other Sites.
ProjectIntern and certain other ProjectIntern Sites contain links to third party Web sites. These links are provided solely as a convenience to You and not as an endorsement by ProjectIntern of the contents on such third-party Web sites.

ProjectIntern shall provide notice to You promptly of any such claim, suit, or proceeding.
