13. ProjectIntern's Liability.
ProjectIntern acts as a service for Employers to post job opportunities and candidates
to post resumes and Profiles and does not screen or censor the listings, including
Profiles offered. ProjectIntern is not involved in the actual transaction between
employers and candidates. As a result, ProjectIntern has no control over User Content,
the quality, safety or legality of the jobs or resumes posted, the truth or accuracy
of the listings, the ability of employers to offer job opportunities to candidates
or the ability of candidates to fill job openings and ProjectIntern makes no representations
about any jobs, resumes or User Content on ProjectIntern. ProjectIntern may take
any action with respect to User Content that it deems necessary or appropriate in
its sole discretion if it believes that such User Content could create liability
for ProjectIntern, damage ProjectIntern’s brand or public image, or cause ProjectIntern
to lose (in whole or in part) the services of its ISPs or other suppliers. While
ProjectIntern reserves the right in its sole discretion to remove User Content,
job postings, resumes or other material from ProjectIntern from time to time, ProjectIntern
does not assume any obligation to do so and disclaims any liability for failing
to take any such action.
ProjectIntern Networking provides a venue for individuals
to network for professional purposes and ProjectIntern does not screen or censor
the Profiles or User Content on ProjectIntern. ProjectIntern is not involved in

Profiles or User Content submitted on ProjectIntern and makes no representations
about any Profile or User Content on ProjectIntern.

nature, other people's information may be offensive, harmful or inaccurate, and
in some cases will be mislabeled or deceptively labeled. We expect that You will
use caution and common sense when using ProjectIntern and/or the other ProjectIntern
Because User authentication on the Internet is difficult, ProjectIntern cannot
and does not confirm that each User is who they claim to be. Because we do not and
cannot be involved in User-to-User dealings or control the behavior of participants
on any ProjectIntern Site, in the event that You have a dispute with one or more
Users, You release ProjectIntern (and our agents and employees) from claims, demands
and damages (actual and consequential and direct and indirect) of every kind and
nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed,
arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.
If You are a California
resident, You waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: "A general release
does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in
his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him or
her must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor."
