Matchstik has no control over any conditions Employer’s or other third parties might impose on a Job Seeker. Matchstik does not have any obligation to screen any Job Postings or other information from Employers, or to include or provide any Job Postings to Job Seekers in its search results or other listings. Matchstick cannot confirm the accuracy or completeness of any Job Posting or other information submitted by any Employer, Job Seeker or other user, including the identity of such Employer, Job Seeker or other user. Matchstik assumes no responsibility, and disclaims all liability, for the content, accuracy, completeness, legality, reliability, or availability of any Job Postings.
