You acknowledge that this disclaimer of warranty constitutes an essential part of these Terms.
Some states and other jurisdictions do not allow exclusions of an implied warranty, so this disclaimer may not apply to you and you may have other legal rights that vary from state to state or by jurisdiction. If applicable law does not allow the exclusion of some or all of the above warranties or conditions, the above exclusions will apply to you to the extent permitted by applicable law.
Filterking does its best to describe its services and resources offered on this Site as accurately as possible. Since human error is inevitable, however, Filterking does not warrant that its descriptions and specifications are complete, accurate, reliable, current, or error-free. In the event of any errors relating to the pricing or specifications, Filterking shall have the right to refuse or cancel any subscriptions or orders in its sole discretion. If your credit card has been charged prior to cancellation, Filterking will issue a credit to your account in the amount of the charge. Additional terms may apply.
This Site may link you to other sites on the Internet. These sites may contain information about job opportunities, employers, job candidates or material that some people may find inappropriate or offensive. You acknowledge and understand that these other sites are not under the control of Filterking, and that Filterking is not responsible for the accuracy of job postings or candidate resumes, legality, decency, or any other aspect of the content of such sites. The inclusion of such a link does not imply endorsement of any site by Filterking or any association with its operators. Filterking does not make any representations or warranties as to the security of any information (including, without limitation, credit card and other personal information) you might be requested to give any third party, and you irrevocably waive any claim against Filterking or its respective officers, directors, employees, agents, subsidiaries, affiliated companies, contractors, and assigns with respect to such sites. Filterking strongly encourages you to use caution before providing any sensitive information (e.g., social security numbers or financial information) to any third party and to make whatever investigation you feel necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any communications with third parties.
Filterking DISCLAIMS ALL LIABILITY WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, AND DOES NOT ACCEPT ANY LIABILITY FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE (DIRECT, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, ACTUAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY OR OTHERWISE) RESULTING FROM ANY USE OR MISUSE OF, OR INABILITY TO USE, THE SITE OR ANY OTHER WEB SITE, OR THE MATERIAL, INFORMATION, SOFTWARE, PRODUCTS, FACILITIES, SERVICES OR OTHER CONTENT ON THE SITE OR ANY OTHER WEB SITE, REGARDLESS OF THE BASIS UPON WHICH LIABILITY IS CLAIMED AND EVEN IF Filterking or any of its respective officers, directors, employees, agents, subsidiaries, affiliated companies, contractors, or assigns HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSS OR DAMAGE. WITHOUT LIMITATION, YOU (AND NOT Filterking, its respective officers, directors, employees, agents, subsidiaries, affiliated companies, contractors, or assigns) ASSUME THE ENTIRE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION IN THE EVENT OF ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE. THESE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY ARE DELIBERATELY BROAD IN SCOPE AND EXCLUDE, BY WAY OF EXAMPLE ONLY, LIABILITY FOR DAMAGES RESULTING FROM DISSEMINATING, FAILING TO DISSEMINATE, OR INCORRECTLY OR INACCURATELY DISSEMINATING ANY MATERIALS, DATA, CONTENT, OR OTHER COMMUNICATIONS. Under no circumstances and under no cause of action or legal theory shall Filterking, its respective officers, directors, employees, agents, subsidiaries, affiliated companies, contractors, or assigns be liable to you or any other person for any indirect, special, incidental, or consequential damages of any character, including, without limitation, damages for lost goodwill, work stoppage, computer failure or malfunction, or any and all other commercial damages resulting from any use of the Materials or other use of this Site. REGARDING LIABILITY TO YOU IN CONNECTION WITH THIS SITE OR THESE TERMS, IN NO EVENT WILL THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF Filterking (OR its respective officers, directors, employees, agents, subsidiaries, affiliated companies, contractors, or assigns) EXCEED THE AMOUNT OF THE SUBSCRIPTION FEE (IF ANY) PAID BY YOU TO Filterking FOR THE MONTH IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE EVENT THAT GAVE RISE TO THE LIABILITY. You acknowledge that thESE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY constitute essential parts of these Terms.
Some states do not allow limitations or exclusions of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you, and you may have other legal rights that vary from state to state or by jurisdiction. If applicable law does not allow the exclusion of some or all of the above limitations and exclusions, the above limitations and exclusions will apply to the extent permitted by applicable law.
If you have a dispute with one or more users (including merchants), you release Filterking and its respective officers, directors, employees, agents, subsidiaries, affiliated companies, contractors, assigns, and licensees from claims, demands, liabilities, costs, expenses, and damages of every kind and nature—actual and consequential, known and unknown—that arise out of or in any way relate to or are connected with such disputes, the Site, or these Terms. This release is deliberately broad in scope to include any and all disputes arising out of this Site, including, without limitation, Filterking’s use or disclosure of content and information you provide to the Site. To the extent permitted by applicable law, in entering this release you expressly and knowingly waive any and all protections (whether statutory or otherwise) that would otherwise limit the coverage or scope of this release in some manner.
You agree to fully indemnify and hold harmless Filterking and its officers, directors, employees, agents, distributors and affiliates from and against any and all claims, demands, liabilities, costs or expenses, including reasonable legal fees, resulting, directly, indirectly, or consequentially, from Filterking’s use of content you submit to this Site, from your subscription or account with this Site, and from your breach of these Terms. Your indemnity obligations cover damages resulting from loss revenue, loss of property, fines, attorneys’ fees and costs, including, without limitation, damages resulting from prosecution and/or governmentally imposed seizures, forfeitures, and injunctions.
By proceeding to use the resume-building and related services of this Site, you agree to subscribe for a seven-day trial version to access the Site’s services for $1.95. Unless cancelled prior thereto, upon conclusion of the seven-day trial, your subscription to the Site will continue and you will be automatically charged $29.80 every twenty eight (28) days until cancelled. For your convenience and satisfaction, all subscriptions will automatically renew until cancelled. Thus, you agree that Filterking and its third party vendors may store your payment information. Subscription rates, as further set forth on the offer page on this Site, are subject to change without notice at any time and for any reason including, but not limited to, fluctuations in currency conversion/exchange rates.
Again, today’s charge is $1.95. If you do not cancel prior to the end of the trial period, you are agreeing to continue as a regular subscriber, and membership fees will renew automatically at $29.80 thereafter every 28 days until cancelled. Until and unless you request termination of your subscription according to the terms hereof, you authorize Us to charge your credit card on a recurring 28-day basis. Your obligation to pay subscription fees continues through the end of the subscription period during which you cancel your subscription. If you have a question about a transaction on your credit card or wish to cancel a trial subscription, please contact Us at [email protected], as set forth herein.
Filterking does not support all payment methods; payment for this Site must be made by credit card. If the credit card you use with Us reaches its expiration date and you do not edit your payment method information or cancel your subscription, you authorize Us to continue billing your credit card, and you agree to remain responsible for any uncollected amounts. All applicable taxes are calculated based on the billing information you provide us at the time of purchase. Unless you have good reason to believe that the credit card used to purchase your subscription has been lost or stolen, you agree not to report it as lost or stolen. Nor will you dispute any charge authorized by your use of the Site consistent with these Terms. You agree and acknowledge that if you fraudulently report the credit card used for this Site as stolen, or if you fraudulently report that an authorized charge by us is unauthorized, you shall be liable to Us for liquidated damages of $25,000.00. The liability for liquidated damages specified in this Paragraph shall not limit any other liability you may have for breach(es) of any other terms, conditions, promises and warranties set forth herein.
You must promptly inform Us of the following: (a) changes in the expiration date of any credit card used in connection with this Site; (b) changes in home or billing address; and (c) apparent breaches of security, such as loss, theft, or unauthorized disclosure or use of an ID or password. Until we are notified, by conventional mail, web-site form, e-mail or by telephone of a breach in security, you will remain liable for any unauthorized use of this site. Filterking will provide you, upon request, access to billing records that support charges for use of this Site.
Please note that depending on where you transact with us, your purchase may be subject to foreign exchange fees or differences in prices because of exchange rates. We are not responsible for any such foreign currency exchange fee or surcharge, and we will not make any compensation or reimbursement for such charges.
We may terminate your subscription at any time for your failure to remit the agreed upon subscription fee or for your failure to abide by these Terms. Even if your subscription is terminated, your obligation to pay subscription fees continues through the end of the subscription period during which your subscription was terminated. To cancel your subscription, whether a trial or regular subscription, please contact Us via e-mail at [email protected], and include in the subject line “Termination Request.” To improve our services, we encourage you to identify in the body of the e-mail the reason for your cancellation, together with any suggestions you may have for Filterking to improve the Site and its services. Please recall that while you may cancel your subscription at any time, your obligation to pay subscription fees continues through the end of the subscription period during which you cancel your subscription. Please note that while refunds may sometimes be granted on a case-by-case basis, they are the rare exception to the rule and are granted, if at all, at Filterking’s sole discretion.
If you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase, you can return the product and get a full refund or exchange the product for another one, be it similar or not.
You can return a product for up to 30 days from the date you purchased it.
By purchasing or canceling a subscription, you hereby agree to receive an e-mail confirmation that may confirm your purchase or cancellation and that may include important details about your purchase or cancellation, including but not limited to, order/cancellation date, subscription ID, username/password, and Filterking’s contact information for any inquiries regarding the subscription purchased or canceled.
If you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase, you can return the product and get a full refund. You can return a product for up to 30 days from the date you purchased it.
The Materials and all other content on this Site are presented for the purpose of providing information regarding products available in the United States and elsewhere.
If you are a United States resident, then, you agree that, to the fullest extent permissible by law (with the exception of disputes pertaining to Filterking’s intellectual property rights and certain statutory claims that are not arbitrable pursuant to law), any dispute of any kind between you and Filterking arising under these Terms shall first be addressed through informal negotiation. If, after good faith efforts, informal negotiation does not resolve the dispute, then you and Filterking agree to resolve any such dispute, claim, or controversy through binding arbitration pursuant to the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures, on an individual basis and with no class relief. Either you or Filterking may commence the arbitration process. The arbitrator shall be a retired judge or justice of any Florida state or federal court with substantial experience in the internet industry and shall follow Florida substantive law in adjudicating the dispute. This Paragraph shall be construed as a “written agreement to arbitrate” pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”). You and Filterking agree that this Paragraph is intended to satisfy the “writing” requirement of the FAA. For any claim in which $10,000.00 or less is sought, you shall have the choice as to whether a hearing is required and, if so, whether it shall be conducted in person or by telephone. Any hearing shall be conducted in Miami-Dade County, Florida or, if this venue is disallowed by law or if Filterking so consents, in the county that encompasses the billing address you have provided to Filterking. Where permitted by law, you and Filterking shall bear your respective costs and fees incurred in the arbitration, and will equally split the cost and fees of JAMS and the arbitrator. If fee-splitting is disallowed, then Filterking shall pay the costs and fees of JAMS and the arbitrator for those claims that the arbitrator determines are not frivolous. Judgment on any award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in the Eleventh Judicial Circuit Court in and for Miami-Dade County, Florida, or the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida. AGREEMENT TO THESE TERMS CONSTITUTES AN AGREEMENT TO PURSUE YOUR CLAIM ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND A WAIVER OF THE ABILITY TO PURSUE YOUR CLAIM IN A CLASS ACTION.
If you are not a United States resident, then, you agree that, you will send Filterking written notice to [email protected] providing a reasonable description of any controversy, dispute, allegation, or claim (including any non-contractual claim) that arises out of or relates to the Site or these Terms, along with a proposed resolution of the controversy, dispute, allegation, or claim. Likewise, if Filterking has such a controversy, dispute, allegation, or claim against you, a non-US resident, Filterking will send you a similar notice based on the most recent contact information that you have provided. If no such information exists or if such information is not current, then Filterking has no obligation under this Paragraph. For a period of sixty (60) days from the date of receipt of notice from the other party, Filterking and you will engage in a dialogue in order to attempt to resolve the controversy, dispute, allegation, or claim. Nothing in this Paragraph will prevent Filterking or a non-US resident from pursuing their claims in court or another complaint process. Should legal action occur in court, you and Filterking hereby stipulate to personal jurisdiction in Miami-Dade County, Florida, and designate that location as the proper venue for judicial resolution. Filterking does not submit or stipulate to personal jurisdiction in any other location. To the extent permitted by law, AGREEMENT TO THESE TERMS CONSTITUTES AN AGREEMENT TO PURSUE YOUR CLAIM ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND A WAIVER OF THE ABILITY TO PURSUE YOUR CLAIM IN A CLASS ACTION.
As noted in the Paragraph above, irrespective of whether or not you are a U.S. resident, you agree that any arbitration, lawsuit, or claim that bring against Filterking shall be limited to an individual basis and with no class relief. You hereby agree that you may only bring claims against Filterking (and its respective officers, directors, employees, agents, subsidiaries, affiliated companies, contractors, assigns, etc.) in your individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding.
Additionally, by entering into these terms you and Filterking each knowingly and irrevocably waive the right to trial by jury.
Except as set forth in Paragraph 27 (which may call for dispute pursuant to the FAA), to the fullest extent permitted by applicable jurisdiction, these Terms shall be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Florida (without regard to the conflicts of laws principles thereof), as they are applied to agreements between Florida state residents entered into and to be performed entirely within the State of Florida (except as governed by Federal law, to the extent applicable). The application of the United Nations Convention of Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded.
You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to the use of the Site or these Terms must be made and communicated by you to Filterking (or by Filterking to you) within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.
Filterking makes no representation that Materials or other content on the Site are appropriate or available for use outside the United States, its territories, possessions and protectorates.

Filterking may suspend any subscribers whose conduct or postings are under investigation and may remove such material from its servers as it deems appropriate and without notice. If Filterking believes, in its sole discretion, that a violation of these Terms has occurred, it may remove the material permanently, cancel postings, warn subscribers, suspend subscribers and passwords, terminate accounts or take other corrective action it deems appropriate. Filterking will fully cooperate with any law enforcement authorities or court order requesting or directing Filterking to disclose the identity of anyone posting any e-mails, or publishing or otherwise making available any materials that are believed to violate these Terms. BY ACCEPTING THIS AGREEMENT YOU WAIVE AND HOLD HARMLESS ALL MEMBERS OF Filterking FROM ANY CLAIMS RESULTING FROM ANY ACTION TAKEN BY ANY MEMBER OF Filterking DURING OR AS A RESULT OF ITS INVESTIGATIONS AND/OR FROM ANY ACTIONS TAKEN AS A CONSEQUNCE OF INVESTIGATIONS BY EITHER A MEMBER OF Filterking OR LAW ENFORCEMENT AUTHORITIES.
If any provision of these terms shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be reformed only to the extent necessary to make it enforceable. Further, any unlawful, void, or unenforceable provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. These Terms as set forth herein constitute the entire agreement between you and Filterking relating to the Site and matters contained herein. These Terms supersede all prior assumptions or written and oral understanding and representations. These Terms may not be amended by you without notice to and consent of Filterking. Unless otherwise explicitly stated, the provisions of the Terms shall survive its termination.
