Not an Employer or Recruiter (Direct Postings)
With the exception of our full-service recruitment offerings (which requires a contract between you and HarmonyJobs), HarmonyJobs is not and is not to be considered to be an employer, posting organization, job placement agency or recruiter (or an agent of any such person or entity) with respect to you or your use of the Service. We do not make or participate in, and shall not be responsible for any employment decisions or other actions, practices or policies of any kind, for whatever reason made, by any person or entity posting jobs on or otherwise using the Service.

Without a written agreement, HarmonyJobs is not, and is not considered, your agent, recruiter, or posting agency. All terms and conditions contained within a written agreement between an employer and HarmonyJobs supercedes these Terms of Service.
