(“Hot Data Jobs”). Hot Data Jobs and its affiliates operate internet-based interactive job posting and search service/career destination portals on (i) Hot Data Jobs.com, and (ii) “Hot Data Jobs” branded and/or owned sites (e.g., Hot Data Jobs.co.uk) (collectively, the “Sites”). This Agreement contains terms and conditions applicable to the products and services (“Services”) provided by Hot Data Jobs to Customer and described in the online order submitted by Customer (“Order”). The Order is subject to the terms and conditions of the Agreement and is made a part of this Agreement. Customer shall use all Services provided hereunder solely for its own internal business purposes and shall not resell or transfer to any third party any Services.

2. Term and Termination. The term (“Term”) of this Agreement will begin on the date the Order is submitted to Hot Data Jobs (the “Effective Date”), and will end upon the later of (i) the expiration of one year from the Effective Date, or (ii) the expiration of the latest duration for Services set forth in the Order (each such duration, a “Product Duration”). This Agreement may not be terminated by either party, except as specifically set forth in this Agreement. If Customer breaches any provision of this Agreement or any Site’s terms of use, Hot Data Jobs may immediately suspend all Customer passwords and access codes until the breach is cured and if applicable, immediately remove any job postings that violate a Site’s terms of use. If Customer’s breach is capable of being cured, Customer will have ten (10) days to cure such breach to Hot Data Jobs’s reasonable satisfaction in order to have passwords and access codes restored. If such breach is incapable of being cured or is not cured by Customer within the ten (10) day period, Hot Data Jobs may: (a) terminate this Agreement and/or (b) pursue all other available remedies to enforce this Agreement and obtain payment of Fees (as defined below) due. If Customer has committed two (2) breaches of the terms of this Agreement or any Site’s terms of use which have subsequently been cured, upon any additional breach by Customer, Hot Data Jobs may immediately without further notice to Customer and without refund of any Fees paid terminate the Agreement. Either party may immediately terminate this Agreement if the other party (i) applies for or consents to the appointment of a receiver, trustee, or liquidator of it or its assets, (ii) makes a general assignment for the benefit of creditors, or (iii) has a petition seeking bankruptcy, reorganization or similar relief filed against it (which, if involuntary, is not stayed or dismissed within ninety (90) days of filing).

3. Payment. All amounts payable by Customer for the Services (“Fees”) are due either immediately in full by credit card or within thirty (30) days after delivery of the Hot Data Jobs invoice without deduction or setoff. Hot Data Jobs may, at its option, charge Customer interest of 1½% per month and collection charges on any Fees not paid when due or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is less. Customer will be responsible for the payment of any present or future sales, use, excise or other similar tax (excluding taxes based on Hot Data Jobs’s net income) applicable to the Services. Fees paid for Services are non-refundable, except in the case of Hot Data Jobs’s uncured material breach, in which case Hot Data Jobs will refund to Customer pre-paid amounts for Services not rendered as of the effective date of such termination. If Customer requests credit or Hot Data Jobs cannot authenticate Customer’s identity, then Customer authorizes Hot Data Jobs to obtain information regarding Customer from trade and bank references, external credit reporting sources, consumer credit agencies and other credit sources as may be reasonably necessary.

4. Services. (a) Job Postings. If set forth in the Order, Hot Data Jobs will permit Customer to post jobs (i) with a duration specified in the Order, and (ii) to either a specified fixed location set forth in the Order or to any location, on the Sites specifically identified in the Order in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and each Site’s terms of use. A Order including job postings may also describe whether the job postings include bolding and the terms, if any, under which such job postings may be auto-refreshed. Hot Data Jobs job postings purchased hereunder must be posted during the Product Duration set forth on the Order, after which all job postings purchased hereunder expire.

Unless otherwise set forth in the Order, each Resume Database License will include twenty thousand (20,000) resume views. If it is determined that additional users (other than named Resume Database license holders) are accessing the Resume Database, then, in Hot Data Jobs’s sole discretion, either (i) Customer will be billed in accordance with the terms hereof, at Hot Data Jobs’s then prevailing price for such Resume Database Access or (ii) such sharing will be a breach of this Agreement and Hot Data Jobs shall have the remedies set forth in Section 2.
