In addition, information applicable to your Account may be required, including password(s), resumes, job search preferences, “favorites” designations, job alert criteria, and information relating to prior jobs applied for.  Only one (1) Account is permitted per user.  The information provided must be accurate and complete.  You may update Account information at any time by clicking on your name at the top of the site (when logged in to the Services). 

There are multiple types of Accounts available:  (i) “Employer Accounts” affiliated with one or more users, but not a user Account itself; (ii) “Employer User Accounts” affiliated with one or more Employers; (iii) “Job Candidate User Accounts” which are stand-alone accounts not otherwise affiliated with other Accounts; and (iv) “Administrative Accounts”.  Depending on the type of Account created, you will have various information and features available to you.  All such information and your conduct associated with the Services provided in such Accounts shall be subject to these Terms and Conditions, the Privacy Policy, and any additional requirements as may be set forth in the Services.

You may never use another user's Account without permission. By creating an Account, you represent and warrant that the information you provide is true and that you will keep it up to date. You are solely responsible for any use or misuse of your Account and must notify Aviation JobNet immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your Account.

If you have a Job Candidate User Account, you can close your account at any time for any or no reason by logging in to your Account, going to the “Your Account” section and clicking the “Delete Your Account” link at the bottom of the page.

For example, it will not necessarily remove content or information that has been stored, shared or re-posted by a third party. We reserve the right to retain information where required or permitted by law to do so. When your Account is closed or deleted, all licenses and other rights granted to you in these Terms and Conditions will immediately cease.
