If you are under eighteen (18) years of age but at least thirteen (13) years of age, you must present this Agreement to your parent or legal guardian for their review. You warrant that you are not prohibited from assenting to this Agreement by any preexisting Agreement.
You warrant and represent that any and all information that you provide to Virtual Vocations and the Website is accurate and valid. You agree to comply in good faith with the terms of this Agreement.
You will not use the Website in any way that violates the rights of third parties, and you agree to comply with any and all applicable local, national, state, provincial, and international laws, treaties, and regulations. Given the global nature of the Internet, you agree to comply with all laws and rules where you reside or where you use the Website. The Website is operated in the United States and Virtual Vocations makes no representation that its Website or services or products are appropriate, lawful, or available for use in other locations.
Because our Website does not have direct contact with the Employers whose jobs we post, all Jobseekers are responsible for any agreements they enter into with said Employers, and for any and all issues that may or may not arise from entering into such agreements. We caution our Jobseekers to fully investigate a job offer or Employer before providing such information as name, social security number, address or banking information. We encourage our Jobseekers to only accept payments from employers through a secured banking system such as PayPal, or by check. We do not encourage giving out bank account information as an acceptable form of receiving payment from Employers.
Virtual Vocations takes many precautions to avoid listing scam positions in our jobs database. However, due to the increasingly sophisticated techniques of online scam artists, we STRONGLY encourage all of our Jobseekers to:
- Research each job offer and the company offering the position before accepting;
- Request at least a phone interview/meeting before you start working;
- Never use your own bank account to receive/send money for companies;
- Never wire money for a company from your personal bank account; and
- Never pay a “start-up” fee to companies that say you must purchase software or other equipment in order to work for them.
Jobseekers are responsible for ALL interactions between potential Employers of the jobs listed in our database and themselves. Any losses resulting from a Jobseeker’s interactions or transactions with a potential Employer, whether the position is real or a scam, is the sole responsibility of the Jobseeker. Virtual Vocations does not reimburse Jobseekers for money lost due to involvement in online scams. Virtual Vocations is not affiliated with the companies whose jobs are listed on our Website. Please exercise caution and due diligence in researching all employment offers received online.
