The Labour xchange Sites act as, among other things, venues for (i) Companies to search for and evaluate job Workers and (ii) Workers to produce workface Profiles and detail their availability. Labour xchange does not screen or censor the listings, including Profiles offered. Labour xchange is not involved in, and does not control, the actual transaction between Companies and Workers other than transmitting payment. As a result, Labour xchange is not responsible for User Content, the quality, safety or legality of the jobs or resumes posted, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of Companies to offer job opportunities to Workers or the ability of Workers to fill job openings and Labour xchange makes no representations about any jobs, profiles or User Content on the Labour xchange Sites. While Labour xchange reserves the right in its sole discretion to remove User Content, profiles or other material from the Labour xchange Sites from time to time, Labour xchange does not assume any obligation to do so and to the extent permitted by law, disclaims any liability for failing to take any such action.
Note that there are risks, including but not limited to the risk of physical harm, of dealing with strangers, underage persons or people acting under false pretenses.

By its very 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 the Labour xchange Sites.
