Modifications

We reserve the right to modify these Terms of Service and any policies affecting the website. Any modification is effective as of the beginning of the calendar month following the earlier of:

  • The posting of the changes or new terms of service of this website;
  • The distribution via electronic mail of the changes or new terms of service; or

  • Your continued use of the website more than 30 days following the effective date of any modification to these Terms of Service shall be conclusively deemed an acceptance of all such modification(s).

Purpose

Our purpose is to permit our users to post and review postings of arts-related opportunities including, but not limited to, employment, internships, film festivals, and competitions. See Exhibit “A.” Our primary goal is to facilitate the exchange and availability of this information for organizations and individuals primarily located in the United States.

Subject to the provisions of “5” and “6” below, you may post opportunities on this website. Subject to the provisions of “5” below, you may post your resume. By following the procedures provided on the website, you may post opportunities without posting your own identifying or contact information, in which case, we will take commercially reasonable steps to forward any inquiries on to you.

Restrictions

You agree to the following restrictions:

  • You will not reprint, republish or distribute in any way, any information or materials found on our website.
  • You will not use any of the information on our website for sending emails or for solicitation purposes or for any other purposes involving solicitation in any way.
  • You will not provide to us or post on our website any information that is incorrect, such as an incorrect name, address, email address or any other incorrect information in a resume or otherwise.
  • You will not post any information that is defamatory, obscene, threatening, abusive or hateful.
  • You will not access data not intended to be accessed by users of the site or attempt to probe, scan or test the vulnerability of our site or attempt to interfere with any service available on our site, change postings of others on our site, take other actions which impose an unreasonable or disproportionate load on our site, send unsolicited email, including promotions and/or advertising of products or services, to addresses obtained from our site, forge any email address, newsgroup or name in connection with this site and/or use a password, name or identification which is not your own in accessing our site.
  • You will not attempt to decipher, decompile, disassemble or reverse engineer any of the software comprising or in any way used on our website.
  • You will not post any materials on our site in violation of any other party’s rights, including, but not limited to, copyrights or privacy and publicity rights.

Posting Restrictions

In connection with posting opportunities, you will not:

  • Post any information that is not correct;
  • Post any opportunities that require performance in a film or video that if rated by the film rating board of the Classification and Rating Administration would be rated above “R” or that involves any excessive nudity or illegal activity.
  • Post any opportunities that require any payment for any kind of employment, multilevel marketing, franchise or business opportunity. Reasonable and customary payments to participate in events for which it is common and expected to pay an upfront amount such as for competitions, conferences, trade shows, exhibition opportunities, film and video festivals, art competitions, showcase opportunities, workshops and seminars and the like are permitted.
  • Post any opportunities that are not “arts related.” “Arts related” means that the opportunity either involves work in an art or talent related capacity or work for an organization or company that provides art related products or services. For example, the work of a graphics designer for a retail establishment would be considered “arts related.” Likewise, a secretarial position for a film producer would also be considered “arts related.” On the other hand, a secretarial position for a retail establishment would not qualify as “arts related.”
