Texas Job Department ("Texas Job Department") welcomes you to the Texas Job Department web site,
www.TexasJobDepartment.com (the "Site"). The Site provides you or, in the case
that you represent a company or other entity, that company or other entity
("you", "your", "yourself") with access to Texas Job Department's services and service providers
of the Site and Services. Carefully read the terms of this Agreement. If you are accessing the Site and Services on behalf of a company that you represent ("Your Company"), then you agree to bind both yourself as an individual, and Your Company, to all of the terms of this Agreement.
By accessing the Site or otherwise using the Services, you acknowledge that
you have read and agree to be bound by this Agreement. If you do not agree
with any of the terms of this Agreement, you do not have permission to
access the Site or use the Services.
In addition, you may also be asked to enter into additional agreements before being permitted to access certain of the Services. Those additional agreements are made a part of this Agreement and will govern your use of the Services covered by the additional agreements. In the event of a conflict between the terms of this Agreement and those additional agreements, the terms of the additional agreements shall govern.
Texas Job Department reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to modify this Agreement
at any time by posting a modified version of this Agreement to the Site. You agree
to be bound by the modified Agreement through your continued access to the Site or
use of the Services.
Minimum Age. If you are an individual, to use the Services you agree that you must be the “Minimum Age,” which is 16 years or older. However, if law requires that you must be older in order for us to lawfully provide the Services to you (including the collection, storage and use of your information) then the Minimum Age is such older age. The Services are not for use by anyone under the age of 16. If you are under 18 years old, you may use the Services only with the approval of your parent or guardian.
Registration. In order to access any Services, you will be asked to submit certain information about yourself ("Registration Information"). You represent and warrant that all Registration Information you have provided is true, accurate, current and complete.
Premium Membership. Certain pages on the Site and certain Services are available to you without cost upon registration (“Free Membership”). To access the entire Site and all Services for a limited period of time, you must purchase a Premium Membership for the fee posted on the Site at the time you purchase a Premium Membership. Texas Job Department reserves the right to change the fee for Premium Membership, at any time at its sole discretion, by posting the new fee on the Site. The fee for Premium Membership shall be applied to your telecommunications services account that you designate at the time of registration and shall be billed to you in your regular invoice provided to you by your telecommunications services provider. By registering for Premium Services, you consent to the application of fee for Premium Services to your designated telecommunications services account.
Consent to Communications. You must provide your electronic mail ("email") address when registering to access any Service. We may use your email address, when necessary, to communicate with you regarding the administration of the Site. Occasionally, you may receive newsletters and updates with information that we deem to be of interest to the members of Texas Job Department. If you do not want to receive newsletters and updates, you may opt out of those Services (i) during the registration process, or (iii) by clicking on the "unsubscribe" link on newsletters and updates.
Registering for the Site or providing your contact information constitutes an inquiry and/or application for purposes of telemarketing laws. When using the Site or Services or otherwise engaging with us, you may have the opportunity to opt-in to receive calls and text messages (including SMS and MMS messages) (including those made using an automatic telephone dialing system or an artificial or prerecorded voice) from Texas Job Department. The specific content and frequency of the messages will be communicated to you in conjunction with your consent, but the messages will generally be about employment opportunities, job search assistance, career advancement and educational opportunities, and other related matters. Your consent will be valid for the specific phone number or other telephonic or electronic form of contact you provided, including your home, work, cellular, or other telephone number, even if that number is registered on a corporate, state, or national do not call registry. You also understand and agree that your consent to such calls and text messages is not required to use the Services. We are able to deliver messages to most mobile service providers. Carriers are not liable for delayed or undelivered messages. Your mobile service provider's standard data and messaging rates apply to all SMS correspondence we have with you (including those that we send to you, and those that you send to us). All charges are billed by and payable to your mobile service provider. If you have any questions about your text plan or data plan, please contact your mobile service provider. You represent that you are the owner or authorized user of the wireless device on which messages will be received, and that you are authorized to approve any applicable charges and to consent to receive calls, texts or other communications at the number you provide. SMS message service subscribers may opt out of the SMS message service by replying with the keyword “STOP”, “END”, or “QUIT” any time. After you unsubscribe, we may send you a final SMS message to confirm that you have been unsubscribed. However, this process will not unsubscribe you from other SMS programs to which you may have separately subscribed. SMS message service subscribers may receive assistance for the SMS message service by replying with the keyword “HELP” to the message received. If fees are charged to your wireless account invoice, we may provide your carrier with your applicable information in connection therewith. Your wireless carrier and other service providers may also collect data about your wireless device usage, and their practices are governed by their own policies. You acknowledge and agree that the SMS message service is provided via wireless systems which use radios (and other means) to transmit communications over complex networks. We will not be liable for any delays in the receipt of any SMS messages, as delivery is subject to effective transmission from your network operator. SMS message services are provided on an AS IS basis. We are not responsible for incomplete, lost, late, damaged, illegible or misdirected mobile messages or for any technical problems, malfunctions of any telephone lines, computer systems, servers, providers, hardware/software, lost or unavailable network connections or failed, incomplete, garbled or delayed computer transmission or any combination thereof. We are not responsible for any liability for damage to any computer system resulting from participation in or accessing or downloading information in connection with the SMS message service. We assume no responsibility for undeliverable mobile messages resulting from any form of active or passive mobile filtering by a user's mobile provider or for insufficient space in user's mobile phone account for messages. We do not guarantee that your use of the SMS message service will be private or secure, and we are not liable to you for any lack of privacy or security you may experience. You are fully responsible for taking precautions and providing security measures best suited for your situation and intended use of the SMS message service.
