Welcome to the Empire Workforce Solutions websites together with any materials and services available therein (individually referred to as the “Site” or collectively as the “Sites”), which are operated by Atlantic Solutions Group, Inc., d/b/a Empire Workforce Solutions and its affiliates (“Empire” or “we” or “us”). Empire maintains this Site for your information, education and communication.
PLEASE REVIEW THESE TERMS AND OUR POLICY CAREFULLY. YOUR ACCESS TO AND/OR USE OF THE SITES CONSTITUTES YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF, AND CONSENT TO BE BOUND BY, THESE TERMS AND POLICY. IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT AND CONSENT TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS AND POLICY, THEN YOU MUST NOT USE OR ACCESS THE SITES.
We may change the Terms and/or Policy from time to time by notifying you of such changes by any reasonable means, including posting revised Terms or Policy through the Sites. Any changes will not apply to disputes between you and us arising prior to the date on which we posted the revised Terms or Policy, or otherwise notified you of changes.
We may, at any time without liability, modify or discontinue all or part of the Sites (including access to the Sites via any third-party links); or offer opportunities to some or all Site users. Changes will become effective when the revised Terms are posted on the Sites. Use of the Sites following these changes means that you accept the revised Terms. User access to and use of the Site is subject to all applicable international, federal, state and local laws and regulations.
By using the Sites, you affirm you are of legal age to enter into these Terms. If you are accessing or using the Sites on behalf of, or for the benefit of, any corporation, partnership or other entity with which you are associated (an “Organization”, or collectively also referred to as “you”), then you agree to these Terms on behalf of yourself and such Organization, and you represent and warrant that you have legal authority to bind such Organization to these Terms. References to “you” and “your” in these Terms will refer to both the individual using the Sites and to any such Organization.
The Sites are controlled or operated from the United States and are not intended to subject Empire to any non-U.S. jurisdiction or law. The Sites may not be appropriate or available for use in some non-U.S. jurisdictions. Any use of the Sites is at your own risk, and you must comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations in doing so. We may limit the Sites’ availability at any time, in whole or in part, to any person, geographic area or jurisdiction that we choose.
Conditioned on your compliance with these Terms, Empire grants you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-assignable, revocable license to access and use the Sites, and to download copies of the materials that we make available for download on the Sites, solely for your personal and non-commercial use or for the purpose of doing business with Empire.
The Sites, including all content, information, and materials incorporated into or made available through the Sites, are the exclusive property of Empire, and are protected by U.S. and international law. You agree not to access or use the Sites, or any content, information, or materials incorporated into or made available through the Sites, except as expressly permitted under these Terms.

3. USER-SUBMITTED MATERIALS
The Sites enable you to upload your résumé, other employment and career related information, job orders, and/or other information related to you, and may also enable you to submit comments and materials through interactive features such as message boards, other forums, and chatting, commenting and other messaging functionality (all such materials are “Submitted Materials”). You retain ownership of your Submitted Materials but grant Empire a worldwide, royalty-free, fully paid-up, non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, transferable and fully sublicensable license, without additional consideration to you or any third party, to reproduce, distribute, perform and display, create derivative works of, adapt, modify and otherwise use and exploit such Submitted Materials, in any format or media now known or hereafter developed, and for any purpose. In addition, if you provide to us ideas, proposals, suggestions or other materials (“Feedback”), whether related to the Sites or otherwise, such Feedback will be deemed Submitted Materials, and you acknowledge and agree that such Feedback is not confidential, that your provision of such Feedback is gratuitous, unsolicited and without restriction, and does not place Empire under any fiduciary, financial, or other obligation.
You represent and warrant that you have all rights necessary to grant the licenses granted in this section, and that Submitted Materials, and your provision thereof through and in connection with the Sites, are complete and accurate, and are not fraudulent, tortious or otherwise in violation of any applicable law or any right of any third party. You further irrevocably waive any and all rights with respect to attribution of authorship or integrity of materials regarding each Submission that you may have under any applicable law under any legal theory.
Empire may screen, monitor, evaluate and remove any Submitted Materials at any time and for any reason, or analyze your access to and use of the Sites. We may disclose information regarding your access to and use of the Sites, and the circumstances surrounding such access and use, to anyone for any reason or purpose.

11. NOTICE OF COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that materials available on the Sites infringe your copyright, you may send Empire written notice by mail, email or fax, requesting that Empire remove such material or block access to it. If you believe in good faith that someone has wrongly filed a notice of copyright infringement against you, the DMCA permits you to send Empire a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA. Notices and counter-notices must be sent in writing to:

We suggest you consult your legal advisor before filing a DMCA notice or counter-notice.
Empire may terminate or suspend your access to the Sites at any time, with or without cause or notice, including if we believe that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of these Terms. Upon any such termination or suspension, (a) your right to access and use the Sites will immediately cease; (b) Empire may immediately deactivate or delete your user name, password and account; (c) Empire will be under no obligation to maintain or provide you with access to any materials associated with your account (including Submitted Materials), and may retain or delete such materials in Empire’s sole discretion; and (d) except for the license granted to you to access and use the Sites, the remaining provisions of these Terms will survive and continue in effect.
13. GOVERNING LAW; JURISDICTION
These Terms are governed by and construed pursuant to the laws of (a) the state where you use or access the Sites; or (b) if a dispute arises relating to (i) your consideration for placement on a job, (ii) your placement on a job, or (iii) your job order, the state in which the job opportunity at issue is located.
These Terms do not, and will not be construed to, create any partnership, joint venture, employer-employee, agency or franchisor-franchisee relationship between you and Empire. If any provision of these Terms is found to be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, that provision will be deemed severable from these Terms and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provision. You may not assign, transfer or sublicense any or all of your rights or obligations under these Terms without our express prior written consent. We may assign, transfer or sublicense any or all of our rights or obligations under these Terms without restriction. No waiver by either party of any breach or default under these Terms will be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default. Any heading, caption or section title contained herein is for convenience only. All terms defined in the singular will have the same meanings when used in the plural, where appropriate and unless otherwise specified. Any use of the term “including” or variations thereof in these Terms will be construed as if followed by the phrase “without limitation.” These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Empire relating to the subject matter hereof and supersede all prior or contemporaneous written or oral agreements or understandings between you and Empire relating to such subject matter. Notices to you may be made via posting to the Sites or by email, or by regular mail. Empire will not be responsible for any failure to fulfill any obligation due to any cause beyond its control.
15. ACCOUNT AND PASSWORD
