LAST UPDATED: May 25, 2018
Welcome to Suited! Please read these terms of service ("Terms of Service") carefully. They apply to your use of the Suited Inc. ("Suited") website at www.wellsuited.com (the "Site") and the related services offered by Suited through the Site. We will refer to the Site and related services offered through the Site as the "Services."
If you have questions regarding the Terms of Service or about Suited, please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
THESE TERMS OF SERVICE CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, REMEDIES, AND OBLIGATIONS. PLEASE NOTE THAT SECTION 13 OF THE TERMS OF SERVICE INCLUDES AN ARBITRATION AGREEMENT. EXCEPT FOR CERTAIN TYPES OF DISPUTES MENTIONED IN THAT CLAUSE, YOU AND SUITED AGREE THAT DISPUTES BETWEEN US WILL BE RESOLVED BY MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION, AND YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT OR CLASS ARBITRATION.
Suited may, in its sole discretion, modify or revise the Terms of Service at any time, and you agree to be bound by such modifications or revisions. Although we may attempt to notify you when major changes are made to the Terms of Service, you should periodically review the most up-to-date version, which will always be posted at www.wellsuited.com/terms. Your continued use of the Services constitutes your acceptance of such changes.
Suited matches qualified candidates with employers using a unique algorithm. The Services you access will depend on whether you are an employer (“Company”) seeking qualified candidates or a candidate (“Candidate”) seeking your ideal employer. Whether you are a visitor to the Site, a Candidate, a Company, or a Company employee, access to the Services is subject to these Terms of Service. If you have entered into a separate agreement with Suited, the terms of that separate agreement will override these Terms of Service to the extent they conflict.
Suited serves as a bridge between Candidates and Companies. Our Services do not extend to any contract of employment and Suited is not bound by any contractual agreement arising between Candidates and Companies, regardless of whether Suited received payment in connection with bringing the Candidate and Company together.
3. ELIGIBILITY AND ACCOUNT CREATION
3.1 SERVICES ELIGIBILITY
The Services are intended solely for users who are 18 years of age or older. To use the Services, you agree that: (1) you must be at least 18 years of age; (2) you will abide by the Terms of Service; and (3) you will only have one Suited account.
3.2 YOUR ACCOUNT
In order to access certain features of the Services, you will have to create a Suited account (“Account”). When creating your Account, you must provide and maintain accurate and complete information and you will be asked to choose a password. You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and keeping your password secure. You agree not to use the account, username, or password of another Suited account holder at any time or to disclose your password to any third party. You may never create an account using a false identity or information, on behalf of someone other than yourself, or use another person's account without permission. Suited may refuse to open an Account for any reason, in Suited's sole discretion.
You agree to notify Suited immediately if you suspect any unauthorized use of your Account, access to your password, or any other breach of security. You are solely responsible for any and all use of your Account. Although Suited will not be liable for your losses caused by any unauthorized use of your Account, you may be liable for the losses of Suited or others due to such unauthorized use.
These Terms of Service shall remain in full force and effect while you use the Services, have an Account, and even after your Account is terminated. You may terminate your Account at any time, for any reason, by emailing email@example.com. If you have a subscription, you must comply with the payment obligations that correspond to your subscription even if you terminate your Account before the subscription ends. Upon your request, and in Suited's sole discretion, you may be able to reinstate your Account at any time within one (1) year after termination. Suited may terminate your Account or your access to Services at any time, without warning and in Suited's sole discretion, if you breach these Terms of Service, or otherwise.
If you buy any of our paid Services (“Premium Services”), you agree to pay us the applicable fees and taxes specific to the paid Services as described on Suited's Site. Failure to pay these fees will result in the termination of your paid Services. Also, you agree that: (1) we may store and continue billing your payment method (e.g. credit card) to avoid interruptions in your Services and to use it to pay for other Services you may buy; and (2) if you purchase a subscription, your payment method will automatically be charged at the start of each subscription period for the fees and taxes applicable to that period. To avoid future charges, cancel before the renewal date by visiting the account management page.
All purchases placed through the Site are subject to Suited's acceptance. This means that Suited may refuse to accept or may cancel any order, whether or not the order has been confirmed, for any or no reason, and without liability to you or anyone else. If your credit card has already been charged for an order that is later cancelled, Suited will issue you a refund.
Unless you have entered into a separate agreement with Suited that conflicts with these Terms, you agree to pay us the applicable fees and taxes for the Services as described in the ordering document executed by Suited and you.

This defense and indemnification obligation will survive these Terms of Service and your use of the Services.
These Terms of Service, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Suited without restriction.
13. ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, CLASS WAIVER, AND JURY WAIVER
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING ARBITRATION AGREEMENT CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU AND SUITED TO AGREE TO RESOLVE ALL DISPUTES THROUGH BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION, UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED.
13.1 APPLICABILITY OF ARBITRATION AGREEMENT
All claims and disputes (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as set forth below) in connection with the Agreement, including the Terms of Service, that cannot be resolved informally or in small claims court shall be resolved, to the extent permitted by applicable law, by binding arbitration on an individual basis under the terms of this Arbitration Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement applies to you and Suited, and to any subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of services or goods provided under the Terms of Service.
13.2. NOTICE REQUIREMENT AND INFORMAL DISPUTE RESOLUTION
Before either party may seek arbitration, the party must first send to the other party a written Notice of Dispute ("Notice") describing the nature and basis of the claim or dispute, and the requested relief. A Notice to Suited should be sent to: 500 Molino Street, Suite 118, Los Angeles, CA 90013 Attention: Suited Legal. After the Notice is received, you and Suited may attempt to resolve the claim or dispute informally. If you and Suited do not resolve the claim or dispute within 30 days after the Notice is received, either party may begin an arbitration proceeding. The amount of any settlement offer made by any party may not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator has determined the amount of the award, if any, to which either party is entitled.
13.3 ARBITRATION RULES
Arbitration shall be initiated through Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services, Inc. (“JAMS”), an established alternative dispute resolution provider ("ADR Provider") that offers arbitration as set forth in this section. If JAMS is not available to arbitrate, the parties shall agree to select an alternative ADR Provider. The JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (“JAMS Streamlined Rules”), as modified by this agreement, and consistent with JAMS Policy on Consumer Arbitrations Pursuant to Pre-Dispute Clauses Minimum Standards of Procedural Fairness (“JAMS Consumer Fairness Standards”), shall govern all aspects of this arbitration, including but not limited to the method of initiating and/or demanding arbitration, except to the extent such rules conflict with the Terms of Service. The JAMS
Streamlined Rules governing the arbitration are available online at https://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/. The arbitration shall be conducted by a single, neutral arbitrator. Any hearing will be held in the city of Los Angeles, California, unless the parties agree otherwise. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
13.4 AUTHORITY OF ARBITRATOR
If arbitration is initiated, the arbitrator will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and Suited, and the dispute will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the JAMS Streamlined Rules, and the Terms of Service. The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and Suited.
13.5 WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL
THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY, instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement, excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as set forth below. Arbitration procedures are typically more limited, more efficient, and less costly than court proceedings and are subject to very limited review by a court. If any litigation should arise between you and Suited in any state or federal court in a suit to vacate or enforce an arbitration award or otherwise, YOU AND SUITED WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, instead electing that the dispute be resolved by a judge.
13.6 WAIVER OF CLASS OR CONSOLIDATED ACTIONS
ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED JOINTLY OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER.
If any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed, and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
13.8 RIGHT TO WAIVE
Any or all of the rights and limitations set forth in this Arbitration Agreement may be waived by the party against whom the claim is asserted. Such waiver shall not waive or affect any other portion of this Arbitration Agreement.
13.9 SURVIVAL OF AGREEMENT
This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with Suited.
13.10 SMALL CLAIMS COURT
Notwithstanding the foregoing, either you or Suited may bring an individual action in small claims court.
13.11 EQUITABLE RELIEF
Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may seek equitable relief before a court of competent jurisdiction for the alleged unlawful use of copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets, or patents or emergency equitable relief before a court of competent jurisdiction to maintain the status quo pending arbitration. A request for interim measures shall not be deemed a waiver of any other rights or obligations under this Arbitration Agreement.
14. GOVERNING LAW, VENUE, AND JURISDICTION
To the extent the parties are permitted under these Terms of Service to initiate litigation in court, both you and Suited agree that all claims and disputes, including statutory claims and disputes, arising out of or relating to the Agreement, including the Terms of Service, shall be governed in all respects by the substantive law of the state of California, without regard to its conflict of law principles. You and Suited hereby consent to submit to the jurisdiction of the federal and state courts sitting in the state of California for any actions, suits, or proceedings arising out of or relating to the Agreement, including the Terms of Service, that are not subject to the Arbitration Agreement.
YOU AND SUITED AGREE THAT ANY CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE SERVICES MUST COMMENCE WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES. OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION IS PERMANENTLY BARRED TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
15. ENTIRE AGREEMENT
