Appcast hereby objects to any term(s) or condition(s) set forth in any communication or publication, printed, electronic or otherwise, from you, which are in any way different from, inconsistent with or in addition to the terms and conditions set forth herein. Such different, additional or inconsistent terms will not become a part of the contract between Appcast and you and will not be binding upon Appcast. To the extent that this document may constitute an offer, this offer expressly limits acceptance to the terms and conditions set forth herein. To the extent that this document may constitute an acceptance, this acceptance is expressly conditioned upon you assent to these Standard Terms.

Services

Subject to these Standard Terms, you will provide Appcast (referred to herein as “we,” “us” and “our”) access to your website (the “Site”) and will permit Appcast to upload and post job advertisements via the Site (the “Services”).

Your Responsibilities; Prohibited Conduct

You will provide the Services in a professional and workmanlike manner in accordance with industry standards. In connection with using the Services, we may provide you with communications, messages or other content that you post, upload, submit, transmit or share on the Site or via the Services, including without limitation job advertisements (collectively “User Communications”). You will use the User Communications solely to provide the Services to us and otherwise in accordance with your published policies and practices.

Fees and Payment

Notwithstanding any other terms and conditions set forth on your website, unless you and Appcast otherwise expressly agree to payment on a cost-per-click basis, Appcast will pay to you a fee for each Appcast Driven Application (defined below) submitted to a customer of Appcast. “Appcast Driven Application” means a complete job application generated and submitted by an applicant who navigated to the website of an Appcast customer after clicking on an Appcast generated job advertisement published on your Site. The fee for each Appcast Driven Application will be the cost-per-application designated by Appcast from time to time. Appcast will calculate the fees based on data collected via the Appcast system, which you agree will be the sole system of record for determining the number of Appcast Driven Applications and corresponding fees. We will pay all fees on a monthly basis. Although we may provide you with an estimate of fees based on a cost-per-click basis, you acknowledge and agree that it is an estimate only and that the actual fees paid to you will be based on the number of Appcast Driven Applications, not the number of job advertisement clicks (unless you and Appcast otherwise expressly agree to payment on a cost-per-click basis). In the event that a user of your site clicks on a job advertisement to apply for an expired job, Appcast will have no payment obligation to you.
