Welcome to HR.com. The following terms and conditions are important things that you should know before using or accessing HR.com. Please read them carefully. By accessing or using any part of HR.com or any of the products or services offered by or through HR.com, you agree to be bound by the following terms and conditions of use. If you do not wish to be bound by these terms and conditions, you may not access or use HR.com. If these conditions change, you will be notified via email.

HR.com and its affiliates and partners respect the privacy of its visitors. HR.com does not collect any personal information through the web site without the knowledge of the visitor. HR.com is a community, resource and social network based site.

Users will be required to enter valid contact data. As a part of the HR.com network, you will receive a minimum of 2 pieces of email a week. This email is our General eBulletin and HR Promotions mailstream which is a direct advertising mailout from one or more of our valued advertisers or it may contain news and interviews related to the industry from a vendor. Vendors will receive our monthly vendor newsletter. Registered users of HR.com will also be offered a variety of other email or mailstreams such as industry-specific eBulletins and HR.com announcements and surveys. You will have the option to remove yourself from these particular mailouts whenever you wish. As part of our network, there is a mandatory requirement to subscribe to 1 HR Promotions mailout per week. Unsubscribing from this HR Promotions stream will deactivate your profile and cause inaccessibility to the site.

There are no refunds whatsoever for our Recertification Program once activity on the site has been established after the purchase of that program. Other products, that have been determined to be defective or damaged, can be returned to us for a full refund within a reasonable amount of time deemed by one of our sales representatives (via email or documented phone call).
