Certain features of the Service may also have their own specific terms and conditions that you agree to when you Sign-Up for that particular product, function, or service or when an Employer enters into a Candidate Sourcing Services Agreement (as defined below) ("Special Terms"). Special Terms supplement this Agreement, but if any term of this Agreement expressly conflicts with any term of the Special Terms, the conflicting term in the Special Terms will control but only with respect to the applicable product, function or service. All other terms and conditions in both this Agreement and the Special Terms will remain in force.
The Luminari Service is an online platform that helps companies source top Chartered Professional Accountants (“CPA”). We are not recruiters, and we are not a job board. Luminari does not charge a percent of salary; we charge a flat fee that will remind you of job board prices. Luminari is designed for CPAs, whether they've decided to take a traditional path or not. For CPA Job Seekers the Service is free, confidential and involves a very small time commitment.
Luminari has different roles with respect to different types of Users. This Agreement will apply to visitors who browse the Luminari website, and individuals who access and use the Service on their own individual behalf as Job Seekers and/or on behalf of an Employer or Company.
If you use the Service to search for CPAs, view resumes or post jobs, you are an "Employer" (also sometimes referred to as "Company" or other designation if you signed a Candidate Sourcing Services Agreement.
In addition to the rest of this Agreement, please review the terms of Section 11 carefully if you are using the Service as an Employer.
If you use the Service to register for job alert emails, upload your resumé, or otherwise search for or apply for jobs, you are a "Job Seeker".
In addition to the other provisions of this Agreement, please review the terms of Section 10 carefully if you are using the Service as a Job Seeker.

Luminari may also make paid features, products or services available to Users through the Service. If you elect to use paid features of the Service, you agree to the pricing and payment terms for the applicable Service, as we may update them from time to time. Luminari may add new services for additional fees and charges, or amend fees and charges for existing services, at any time in its sole discretion.

You further agree that Luminari has no responsibility for such third party services and your use of such services is entirely at your own risk. Any change to the fees for paid services shall become effective in the billing cycle following notice of such change to you as provided in this Agreement.
You may cancel your User account at any time; however, there are no refunds for cancellation.

You will be responsible for all reasonable expenses (including legal fees) incurred by Luminari in collecting delinquent amounts, except where the delinquent amounts are due to billing inaccuracies.
10. Provisions Specific to Job Seekers
The provisions of this Section 10 of the Agreement are specific to Users that use the Service as Job Seekers. There is no cost to Job Seekers to use the Service.
As a Job Seeker, you can (i) use the Service to search for jobs, (ii) apply for jobs ("Job Applications") that are listed on the Service ("Job Listings"), and (iii) receive job alert emails ("Job Alerts"). You have the ability to choose how to submit your Job Application through the Service using the options offered through the Service. You can also submit a Job Application through your mobile device.
Please note that once you have submitted a Job Application your resume and other applicable information will be shared with the Employer that posted the Job Listing. You should therefore ensure that the information you provide is complete and accurate, and only contains information you are comfortable sharing with Employers.
If you submit a resume, you acknowledge that we may 'parse' the resume into another format that enables searchable text for an Employer. The Employer will also be able to see your resume in the form in which you originally submitted it to Luminari.
No entity outside of Luminari (including, but not limited to companies, recruiters, HR professionals, talent acquisition professionals) can search Job Seekers’ profiles, look up Job Seekers or request Luminari to provide specific personal information about our Job Seekers. The only way for companies to become aware of an interested candidate through Luminari is for the Job Seeker to initiate action through the Service.
You are solely responsible for your interactions with Employers that you contact, or that contact you. Please note that there are risks, including but not limited to the risk of physical harm, that may arise when dealing with strangers, including persons who may be acting under false pretenses. You should therefore use caution with regard to the information you elect to share as part of your User Profile or in a Job Application or resume that you provide through the Service. Only list the contact information that you are comfortable disclosing to Employers and other Users of the Service.
Although Luminari requests that Employers maintain the confidentiality of the Job Applications and resumes they receive through the Service, Luminari cannot and does not guarantee that the information you provide to Employers through the Service as part of a Job Application or via a resume will be held in confidence or properly secured by each applicable Employer. In addition, Luminari takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for any Job Listing or other employee-related documents that any Employer posts, sends or provides via the Service. You agree that Luminari is not responsible or liable for the conduct of any Employer.
Luminari cannot guarantee that Job Seekers will be hired for a job, responded to about a job or be considered for a job. Luminari cannot control the hiring practices of its Employer clients.
11. Provisions Specific to Users that are Employers
The provisions of this Section 11 of the Agreement are specific to Users that use the Service as Employers (which includes direct employers, staffing agencies, and other companies using the Service).
In order to use the Service, Employers must enter into an agreement (the “Candidate Sourcing Services Agreement”) with Luminari which contains, among other things (i) the fees payable by the Employer, (ii) the service(s) purchased by the Employer and to be provided by Luminari through the Service, (iii) the period of time during which the Employer will use the Service, and (iv) contains any Special Terms and Conditions. The Candidate Sourcing Services Agreement also incorporates these Terms of Service.
If you are an Employer, you agree that you will not use the Service to post or promote any position that: contains inaccurate, false, or misleading information; includes any screening requirement or criterion in connection with a job posting where such requirement or criterion is not an actual and legal requirement of the posted job; involves any franchise, pyramid scheme, "club membership", distributorship, or multi-level marketing opportunity; requires applicants to pay to apply, pay for training, pay for training materials, or pay for samples; contains content that violates applicable laws; or pays commissions only (except for postings that make clear that the available job pays commission only and clearly describes the product or service that the Job Seeker would be selling, in which case such advertisements are permissible).
When using the Service, you are responsible for ensuring that your use of the Service is in compliance with applicable law.
In order to create a Job Listing, you must provide us with certain information about the job. We will develop a summary of the opportunity (a “Job Brief”) based on the information that you provide to us and from the Job Brief we will create a Job Listing. All Job Listings will be prepared in accordance with Luminari’s posting format.
Luminari reserves the right to reject a Job Listing or exclude any information from a Job Listing that Luminari, in its sole discretion, deems inappropriate.
When we create a Job Listing, we will post the Job Listing on our job board, which all Job Seekers can view and access. We will also send Job Alerts to certain Job Seekers based on our proprietary matching algorithms.
Luminari will review Job Applications submitted by Job Seekers to a Job Listing and provide the Employer with a short list of Job Seekers matching the Employer’s preferences. Employers may also review all of the Job Applications submitted to their Job Listing.
Unless otherwise specified in the Candidate Sourcing Services Agreement, each Job Listing will remain active for a period of thirty (30) calendar days.
As an Employer, you are responsible for all activity, acts or omissions of any of your personnel that have an Account to use the Service (each, an "Authorized User") and you agree to abide by the following rules:
Ensure that Accounts are not shared between your personnel or with any other third parties.
Ensure that Accounts are not sold or licensed; you will not charge, or receive payment, in cash or in kind, from any individual or entity for use of, or access to, any portion of the Service.
Ensure that Authorized Users comply with this Agreement, and promptly notify Luminari of any suspected or alleged violation of this Agreement including any unauthorized use of any password or account or any other known or suspected breach of security.
Cooperate with Luminari with respect to: (i) investigation by Luminari of any suspected or alleged violation of this Agreement and (ii) any action by Luminari to enforce this Agreement. Luminari may suspend or terminate an Authorized User's access to the Service in the event that Luminari reasonably determines that such Authorized User has violated this Agreement or appears likely to do so.
You acknowledge and agree that Luminari may, in its sole discretion, with no liability or penalty, remove any Job Listing, content, communication or information posted on the Service. Luminari may, in its sole discretion, provide an Employer with a refund for removing the Employer’s Job Listing.
Luminari shall not provide a refund for removing an Employer’s Job Listing, which in the sole judgment of Luminari, (i) violates or may violate this Agreement, applicable laws, rules or regulations, third party terms, or may adversely affect Luminari; (ii) is false, inaccurate, misleading, deceptive, fraudulent, libelous, defamatory, immoral, offensive, obscene, pornographic, disruptive, threatening, abusive or illegal; or (iii) which may violate or lead to the violation of the rights of, or harms or threatens the safety and privacy of any third party.
An Employer may, at any time, request that Luminari remove a Job Listing. If an Employer requests that Luminari remove a Job Listing, the Employer shall not be entitled to a refund.
Job Applications are provided to you by Luminari solely for use by you for the limited purpose of reviewing and evaluating a Job Seeker’s candidacy for a Job Listing. If a Job Seeker terminates their use of the Service, Luminari reserves the right to block access to, and/or remove, the Job Seeker's Job Application. You agree to comply with the following rules regarding your access to and use of Job Applications:
You will only use a Job Application to seek an employee for the Job Listing to which the Job Application was submitted.
You will not sell, license, share, rent or otherwise disclose Job Applications or their contents to any third party. However, if you are a recruiter or staffing agency sourcing candidates on behalf of your client, you may share Job Applications with that client subject to this Agreement.
You will not use contact information in Job Applications to send unsolicited mail or e-mails, make unsolicited phone calls or send unsolicited faxes regarding promotions and/or advertising of yours or a third party's products or services or employment opportunities unrelated to a Job Listing.
You agree to implement appropriate physical, technical, and administrative measures to protect the data within the Job Application from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction.
Job Applications shall only be used and accessed by you in accordance with privacy, data protection and other applicable laws and regulations.
You will respect the privacy choices of Job Seekers.
You will not use Job Applications in any manner that, in the sole discretion of Luminari, adversely affects Luminari’s business or performance of the Service.
You will not take any action to circumvent or avoid payment of any fees to Luminari.
You will remain primarily liable for all acts or omissions of Authorized Users and for any activity under your Account.
You acknowledge and agree that Luminari may inform a Job Seeker that his/her resume has been viewed by you.
12. No Guarantee
Although we may take certain steps to evaluate and authenticate Job Seekers, Luminari does not confirm the information in a Job Seeker’s resume or their competency or proficiency in the subject matter in which they offer their services. Luminari makes no guarantees or representations regarding the skills or representations of Job Seekers or the quality of the work that such Job Seeker may perform as an employee or contractor. It is entirely up to Employers to: (i) interview and evaluate a prospective employee’s qualifications, references and experience; and (ii) determine whether a particular prospective employee will meet the Employer’s requirements. LUMINARI DOES NOT GUARANTEE OR WARRANT ANY JOB SEEKER’S PERFORMANCE OR THE OUTCOME OR QUALITY OF THE WORK PERFORMED.
If the relationship between an Employer and a Job Seeker hired by such Employer through the Service terminates for any reason, Luminari shall not be responsible for providing the Employer with a replacement employee.
Luminari cares about the integrity and security of your personal information. We cannot, however, guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat our security measures or use your personal information for improper purposes. You acknowledge that you provide your personal information at your own risk.
15. Third-Party Links and Services
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Luminari and its subsidiaries, agents, licensors, managers, Distributors, and other affiliated companies, and their respective employees, contractors, agents, officers and directors, from and against any and all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or debt, and expenses (including but not limited to attorney's fees) arising from: (i) your use of and access to the Service, including any data or content transmitted or received by you; (ii) your violation of any term of this Agreement, including without limitation your breach of any of the representations and warranties herein; (iii) your violation of any third-party right, including without limitation any right of privacy or Intellectual Property Rights; (iv) your violation of any applicable law, rule or regulation; (v) any claim or damages that arise as a result of any of your User Content or any that is submitted via your account; or (vi) any other party's access and use of the Service with your account or log-in information.

If mandatory arbitration of your dispute is not permitted under applicable law, you agree that you will seek a remedy before the superior court of justice of your province or territory of residence.

This Agreement and any disputes shall be governed by the laws of the Province of Ontario and the federal laws of Canada applicable therein. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded.
This Agreement, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Luminari without restriction.

Neither party shall have, or hold itself out to any third party as having any authority to make any statements, representations or commitments of any kind, or to take any action, that shall be binding on the other, except as provided for herein or authorized in writing by the party to be bound.
