The Content is protected under U.S. and international copyright laws.

You must display all copyright, trademark, service marks and other proprietary notices contained in the original Content on any copy you make of the Content.

You are not permitted to use Blissful House’s Site or its content other than for non-commercial purposes. Use of any automated system or software, whether operated by a third party or otherwise, to extract data from the Site (such as screen scraping or crawling) is prohibited. Blissful House reserves the right to take such action as it considers necessary, including issuing legal proceedings without further notice, in relation to any unauthorized use of the Site. If you wish to make commercial use of the Site, if you wish to make use of the Site in any capacity other than that of a Jobseeker or Employer, you must have a prior written agreement to do so.
The Site may contain links to other sites on the Internet which are owned and/or operated by third-party vendors and other third parties (the “External Sites”). You acknowledge that Blissful House’ is not responsible or liable for any such third parties or for the availability of, or the materials located on or through, any External Sites. These links are provided solely as a convenience to you and not as an endorsement by Blissful House’of the contents on such third-party websites. Blissful House’ is not responsible for the content of linked third-party sites and does not make any representations regarding the content or accuracy of materials on such third-party websites. You should contact the site administrator or webmaster for the applicable External Site if you have any concerns regarding such links or the materials located on an External Site. We are not responsible for any content or services provided by these third parties and disclaim all liability from anything that may occur when you utilize such third parties.
You must not post any User Content that is unlawful, fraudulent, discriminatory, threatening, abusive, libelous, defamatory, obscene or otherwise objectionable, or that contains sexual, ethnic, racial or other discriminating slurs, or that contains no relevant or constructive content. You must also not post any User Content that contains proprietary information, trade secrets, confidential information, advertisements, solicitations, chain letters, pyramid schemes, investment opportunities, or other unsolicited commercial communication (except as otherwise expressly permitted by us in writing) or encourages or causes spamming or flooding.
You are prohibited from posting any User Content containing official identification information (whether your own or of another person), such as social security number, passport number, national identification number, insurance number, driver’s license number, immigration number, or any other similar number, code, or identifier. Posting such identification information may lead to identity theft and other adverse consequences. Blissful House’ may remove any such identification information, but does not undertake any obligation to do so, and has no responsibility and disclaims all liability for any posting of such identification information. Blissful House’ reserves the right to change the display of resume on its Site, including, but not limited to, hiding fields, rearranging its format, and changing visual elements.
Although Blissful House’ has no obligation to do so, Blissful House’ may monitor User Content, and reserves the right to delete any User Content or portion thereof that, in Blissful House’s sole discretion, violates the above rules, including any User Content that is unrelated to the specific portion of the Site on which it is posted.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Blissful House reserves the right (but is under no obligation) to remove any Job Listing that directly or indirectly discriminates against Job Seekers. Direct discrimination means, for example, that a Job Listing specifically makes clear that only Job Seekers matching a certain criterion are wanted, thereby excluding others because of, for example, their gender, race, age or disability. Indirect discrimination means, for example, that a Job Listing implicitly excludes certain classes of Job Seekers by making it impossible for them to qualify for the job requirements. You understand and agree that it is your responsibility to refrain from posting any Job Listing that directly or indirectly discriminate against Job Seekers or otherwise violate applicable law.
