No Outside Recruitment Solicitation
Salesfolks has invested heavily in providing a valuable service to Companies, Sales Leaders and Salespeople. Salesfolks helps to connect businesses with independent sales contractors (1099) and salespeople seeking permanent (W-2) employment. Salesfolks, Inc. prohibits the use of the service for soliciting and/or recruiting salespeople outside of the platform except for those accounts who have upgraded recruiting access and wherein the additional level of service provided by Salesfolks enables outside solicitation. Any violation of this rule will result in immediate banning of the account conducting such activity. This policy includes Companies, Sales Leaders, and Salespeople, as well as others who may use the service, such as Hiring Managers, Recruiting Firms and Recruiters, and others. No warnings will be provided for a violation of this policy. This policy exists for many reasons beyond the economic interest of Salesfolks, including the fact that when relationships are taken offline from the platform and if/when things don't turn out well, we are not able to help put things straight. So, when you sign up for Salesfolks, you are committing to use the platform, and you acknowledge that taking a relationship started on platform off of the platform may be a violation of our Terms of Service.
No Misleading Profiles
Salesfolks has gone to great lengths to develop a trusted platform. Therefore, we do not allow users who are impersonating others, developing an untrue or inauthentic personality or persona, using pseudonyms such as made up, fake or fictitious names, or attempts to misdirect or mislead another user in any way, shape or form. Doing so is grounds for immediate termination of your Salesfolks account.
Right to Remove Sales Job Posts
Salesfolks enables businesses to describe specific sales roles and sales objectives and publish to our community Sales Jobs Posts. We fully understand that virtually every type of business is interested in growing their sales, and we respect that. However, not all Sales Job Posts may be right for our community. There can be many reasons for this, including, but not limited to, a confusing Sales Job Post, a Sales Job Post lacking inadequate description, a Sales Job Post lacking clear articulation of a pathway for salespeople to generate income by way of conducting sales, Sales Job Posts that are construed as political, offensive, dishonest, or in any way that doesn't add a meaningful opportunity to the Salesfolks community. We fully understand that this may be frustrating if you create a Sales Job Post on Salesfolks and it remains unpublished or is removed from our index of available Sales Job Opportunities. We wish you the best, but your Sales Job Post just didn't meet our sales opportunity standards. If that is the case, you may want to consider publishing elsewhere.
Limit of Liability
SALESFOLKS IS NOT AND WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES OF ANY KIND ARISING FROM THE USE OF THIS WEBSITE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, AND CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING.

Immunity Under Section 230
Section 230 of Title 47 of the United States Code enacted as part of the United States Communications Decency Act generally provides immunity for website platforms with respect to third-party content. Section 230(c)(1) provides immunity from liability for providers and users of an "interactive computer service" who publish information provided by third-party users. Specifically, “No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider.” Section 230(c)(2) further provides "Good Samaritan" protection from civil liability for operators of interactive computer services in the good faith removal or moderation of third-party material they deem "obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy, excessively violent, harassing, or otherwise objectionable, whether or not such material is constitutionally protected."
