Terms of Service

     Updated Date: December 10, 2018

The gist:

We ( HrKin) run a website called "HrKin.io" and would love for you to use it. HrKin’s basic service is free and we offer a marketplace where users can exchange information and provide feedback in a positive environment.

Our service is designed to give you as much control and ownership over what you post on our platform. However, be responsible in what you post. In particular, make sure that none of the prohibited items (like spam, illegal activity, violations of viruses, or serious threats of violence) appear on your post and/or comments. If you utilize our site you also agree to never post content including but not limited to: questions, comments, job postings and/or messages that are related to Age, Race, Ethnicity, Color, Gender, Sex, Country of National origin, Birth place, Religion, Disability, Martial Status, Family Status or Pregnancy. We at HrKin believe that when people help other people the world is a better place. Therefore, any content and/or behavior that is deemed to be discriminatory and/or harmful will not be tolerated. Please note that receiving feedback and or other information from another user does not guarantee job placement and/or an interview. All content submitted, messaged, posted or displayed is the sole responsibility of the user from which the content originated. HrKin claims no responsibility for the content. As a user of our site, you agree to never agree to give something in return for a promise of a job offer and/or interview. In addition to that, you agree to never promise a job offer or interview in return for a favor from another user.

HrKin reserves the right to terminate the account of any user for any reason. If you find behavior or content that you believe violates our Terms of Service, please send us a message via our Contact us page.
