Additionally, § 230 (c)(2) of the CDA specifically provides: “No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be held liable on account of (A) any action voluntarily taken in good faith to restrict access to or availability of material that the provider or user considers to be obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy, excessively violent, harassing, or otherwise objectionable whether or not such material is constitutionally protected…”

19. AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE

This Terms of Use contain an Arbitration provision, which will, with limited exception, require you to submit disputes you have against ZipRecruiter to binding and final arbitration. You will only be permitted to pursue claims against ZipRecruiter on an individual basis, not as a plaintiff or class member in any class or representative action or proceeding, and you will only be permitted to seek relief (including monetary, injunctive, and declaratory relief) on an individual basis.

If you are located in, are based in, have offices in, or do business in a jurisdiction in which this Section 19. is enforceable, the following mandatory arbitration provisions apply to you:

Binding Arbitration

This Section 19 is referred to in these Terms of Use as the “Agreement to Arbitrate“. Unless you opt-out pursuant to the opt-out procedures set forth below, you agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and ZipRecruiter or its affiliates, whether relating to the Services, this Terms of Use (including any alleged breach thereof), or otherwise (each a “Dispute“), shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than a court in accordance with the terms of this Agreement to Arbitrate. Your rights will be determined by a neutral arbitrator, not a judge or jury. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT ABSENT THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE, YOU WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL.

The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA“), including the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes, each available at www.adr.org, or such other alternative dispute resolution body and arbitration rules that may be mutually agreed upon by you and ZipRecruiter. Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by such rules. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone or online. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, you and ZipRecruiter may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceeding pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator. All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision or award by the arbitrator, will be strictly confidential for the benefit of all parties.

Restrictions

You and ZipRecruiter agree that any arbitration shall be limited to the Dispute between ZipRecruiter and you individually. To the full extent permitted by law, (1) no arbitration shall be joined with any other; (2) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (3) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons.

Exceptions to Informal Negotiations and Arbitration

You and ZipRecruiter agree that the following Disputes are not subject to the above provisions concerning informal negotiations and binding arbitration: (1) any Disputes seeking to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of, any of your or ZipRecruiter intellectual property rights; (2) any Dispute related to, or arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, invasion of privacy or unauthorized use; and (3) any claim for injunctive relief.

30 Day Right to Opt Out of Arbitration

You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by the arbitration provisions set forth in this Section 19 by sending written notice of your decision to opt-out to [email protected] or to the U.S. mailing address listed at the bottom of this Agreement. The notice must be sent to ZipRecruiter within thirty (30) days of your registering to use the Services or agreeing to these Terms of Use (whichever is earlier), otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of those sections. If you opt-out of these arbitration provisions, we also will not be bound by them.

An arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different users but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same user to the extent required by applicable law. Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, all arbitration and other litigation in a court of competent jurisdiction of any dispute between you and ZipRecruiter related to this Agreement shall be located in Los Angeles County, California.

Thereafter, Customer’s subscription to the Services will automatically renew for additional successive periods of thirty (30) days each (each, a “Renewal Term” and together with the Initial Term, the “Subscription Term” or “Term”), until Customer cancels its subscription prior to the end of the then-current Renewal Term by selecting ‘Cancel Subscription’ in the billing section of the admin panel, or by sending a written notice of non-renewal to [email protected],  or until the subscription is earlier terminated pursuant to the express provisions of the Service and Website Terms of Use and/or the paper Services Agreement (as applicable).

Each party acknowledges that a breach by the other party of any confidentiality or proprietary rights provision of the Service Terms of Use may cause the non-breaching party irreparable damage, for which the award of damages would not be adequate compensation. Consequently, the non-breaching party may institute an action to enjoin the breaching party from any acts in violation of those provisions, which remedy shall be cumulative and not exclusive, and a party may seek the entry of an injunction enjoining any breach or threatened breach of those provisions, in addition to any other relief to which the non-breaching party may be entitled at law or in equity; provided, however, that, Customer shall not be entitled to any injunctive relief that might materially interfere with the operation of the Platform or the Services. Except as set forth in this Section 11 (f), Customer is limited to claims for money damages.
