2. Overview of IdealTraits
IdealTraits provides a platform that may function as an all around recruiting tool, allowing users to post jobs, assess candidate personalities, send offer letters, and more. Though the platform has the ability to do much more than assess personalities, the foundation of IdealTraits is the university backed Personality Assessment which is the best tool to use in identifying the right candidate for the right role within a business. The platform makes it easy for you to analyze data from individual assessments so that you can ensure proper placement of that candidate into your organization. In addition, the Personality Assessment can be used to help retain current employees, saving you valuable time and money associated with recruiting and hiring costs.
By accepting these Terms, you are expressly consenting to disclosure of certain Personal Information.
When you register as a client with IdealTraits, you will be asked to provide certain information including, without limitation, your name, business name, business address, phone number, and a valid email address (all of the above will be referred to as your “Personally Identifiable Information”). Except as otherwise provided herein, IdealTraits will not disclose your Personally Identifiable Information to third parties unless you have given your consent. However, it is understood that, without your formal consent, third parties may have access to aggregated database information from IdealTraits’s users that will show your Personally Identifiable Information.
IdealTraits reserves the right to offer third party services and products to you based on the preferences that you identify in your membership registration and at any time thereafter; such offers may be made by IdealTraits or by third parties.

7. Employer Job Postings
When posting a job opening, IdealTraits will make reasonable efforts to distribute your job posting to third-party services or job boards (collectively, “Distributors”). By posting your job, you give IdealTraits permission to distribute your job posting to current and future Distributors. However, you acknowledge and accept that IdealTraits has no control over any Distributor and therefore, IdealTraits provides no guarantee that your job post will be accepted by a Distributor or posted via a Distributor.
You accept that a Distributor may not have an obligation to use or display your job post in their services, and may reject your job post for any reason, even if you have paid for a “Sponsored Job”.
You agree that IdealTraits is not liable to you or any third party if your job post is rejected or not posted, and you will not be entitled to any refund for jobs not posted or distributed.
You are solely responsible for interviewing, performing background and reference checks on, verifying information provided by, and selecting an appropriate candidate. In certain cases, Distributors may require that you agree to additional service policies in order to allow your job post to be distributed on their services. As a condition to the distribution of your job posting to a Distributor’s services, you hereby agree to such additional Distributor service policies as they apply to the distribution of your job posting through the applicable Distributor’s services.
Some of the reasons your job posting(s) might be removed from Distributors include, but are not limited to:
In addition to not having control over Distributor decisions, IdealTraits has no control over the amount or quality of candidates who apply to your job posting(s). IdealTraits is not a job board and does not guarantee applicants, and you will not be entitled to any refund for lack of amount and/or quality of candidates.
8. Website Security

Users of the Platform are also prohibited from violating, or attempting to violate, the security of the Platform in any manner including, without limitation:
Violations of Web Site security may result in civil or criminal liability. IdealTraits will investigate occurrences which may involve such violations.

9. Third Party Information
As a result of the nature of the Services provided through IdealTraits, you will have access to information (“Third Party Information”) from various sources including our suppliers, employers, and advertisers through the Platform. The Third Party Information contained on this Platform is provided for informational purposes only and should not be considered as professional advice. IdealTraits makes no representation, either express or implied, as to the accuracy, timeliness or completeness of any Third Party Information, nor does IdealTraits undertake to update or correct such Third Party Information. IdealTraits strongly recommends that you independently confirm all Third Party Information you obtain from the Services.
10. Liability and Disclaimers
With hiring becoming a more precision-oriented field, many Human Resource Departments in all sizes of businesses are looking for an advanced set of tools outlining the predictions on the potential of new hire candidates. The main aim is to find the right person for the job easier and far less expensive than traditional selection methods. IdealTraits provides a tool, through its Platform, for employee personality testing that employers can use as data on the individual to find out where he or she would fit into a company.
IdealTraits is not involved in the actual negotiation or the consummation of the transaction, which may result in a job placement between an employer and a candidate. As a result, IdealTraits has no control over the quality, safety, or legality of the candidate or their Personally Identifiable Information posted or transmitted, the truth or accuracy of the candidate’s resume, or the ability of candidates to fill the job openings for which they may be hired.
In addition, please be aware that there are risks including, but not limited to, the risk of physical harm, the risk associated with dealing with strangers, foreign nationals and underage persons or the risk of people acting under false pretenses. By using the Platform, you agree to assume all risks associated with dealing with other users with whom you come in contact through the Platform.
Because user authentication on the Internet is difficult, IdealTraits cannot and does not confirm that each candidate is who they claim to be. IdealTraits does not and cannot be involved in employer to candidate dealings or control the behavior of candidates who apply to a job posting through IdealTraits. By your use of the Platform, you agree to release IdealTraits (and its agents, officers, shareholders, directors, and employees) from any 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 any disputes, which you may have with one or more users.
IdealTraits is under no legal obligation to, and generally does not, control the information provided by candidates which is made available through the Platform. Candidate’s information may, in some cases, be mislabeled or deceptively labeled. IdealTraits expect that you will use caution and common sense when using the Platform.
