In the case you represent an organization in search of talent, “you” and “your” would include the organization that you represent. The organization itself will be referred to as an “Opportunity Partner.” In the case of an individual looking for a job opportunity, the word “Talent” could also be used to describe a group of job seekers.
Description of Service
For organizations (Opportunity Partners): GigBlender helps build a motivated, well-aligned talent pool – matching their open positions and culture with like-minded individuals that may not be on their radar. The app is a much-needed tool to help broaden the diversity of their candidate pools based on race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, veteran status, age, physical abilities – with the goal of making each new hire a great “fit” with their culture, values and goals.
For job seekers (Talent): GigBlender works like a finely tuned music-streaming station that “gets” you, displaying job opportunities that a simple keyword might not uncover.
Our goal: to create a tool with transformational potential based on a proprietary discovery process and matching algorithm that yields a deep understanding of its users resulting in values-based alignment.

Communications Decency Act
Although our Rules of Conduct prohibit users from posting defamatory material, we cannot ensure that it will not occur due to our limited resources. Under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, we are not liable for defamatory material published by third parties (such as users) on our website. We recommend that you report any alleged defamation by third parties to us with full details of who you are and how the material is defamatory, and if we agree it is defamatory, we may remove it. However, do not attempt to sue us, whether or not we remove such material, as we are not liable due to the Communications Decency Act and will attempt to recover any attorneys’ fees, costs, and disbursements from you that are incurred as a result of defending against such a lawsuit. Additionally, due to the SPEECH Act 2010, you cannot attempt to sue us in another country for defamation and then attempt to domesticate the judgement in the United States to enforce it.
If it is unclear whether something is defamatory or not, regardless of whether it is a legal or factual lack of clarity, we will likely not remove the complained-about content. However, we may remove it in such instances if you produce for us a court order or declaration from within the United States declaring the specific content complained about to be unlawful.
Note that any actions we take to police defamatory material on our website are strictly voluntary, and we reserve all rights under the Communications Decency Act, as well as any other statutory, constitutional, or common law defenses.
