This Section I discusses the types of users that may access and use the talent-related services on our websites, the terms and conditions that apply to such access and use, as well as the procedure for account registration on our websites.


These Wellfound General Terms (the “General Terms”) are a binding agreement between you (“User” or “you”) and us, AL Talent, Inc. (“Wellfound,” “us,” “we” or “our,” etc.) that governs your access and use of the talent-related products and services on our website (the “Site”).

There are two types of Users on the Site:

  • Candidates: Users that access the Site through the account of a potential employee or contractor.
  • Employers: Users that access the Site through the account of a potential employer and who possess an email address with such employer. For Employers, references to “User” and “you” include any employer or other party you may be acting on behalf of in accessing our talent-related products and services at the Site.

If you are not a Candidate or an Employer, for example, if you are an external third-party recruiter or agency (including talent marketplaces), then you may not use the Site or the Services for any purpose.


We and our designated affiliates provide a variety of products and services through the Site to facilitate the recruitment and hiring of Candidates by Employers as listed below (collectively, the “Services”), each of which are described in further detail in corresponding service-specific terms (“Service Terms”) linked below and incorporated herein by reference:


If you want to use the Services, you will need to create an account (“Account”), and fill out an associated User profile. It’s important that you provide us with accurate, complete and up-to-date information for your Account, and you agree to update such information to keep it accurate, complete and up-to-date. If you don’t, we might have to suspend or terminate your Account. You agree that you won’t disclose your Account password to anyone, and you will notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your Account. You are responsible for all activities that occur under your Account, whether or not you know about them.

If you are an Employer, you may have the ability to grant the Accounts of other Users certain permissions (“Permissioned Users”) to act on your behalf in certain respects, such as for recruiting and/or candidate outreach purposes. By granting such permissions, you hereby represent and warrant that (i) any such Permissioned User is authorized to act on your behalf; (ii) you are financially responsible for any such Permissioned User’s actions taken in accordance with such permissions, including, if applicable, the execution of binding contracts on your behalf; and (iii) you will ensure that any such Permissioned User complies with the Terms and be fully and directly liable to Wellfound for any act or omission of any such Permissioned User in connection with the Terms, the Site or the Services.


This Section II discusses the parties’ rights with respect to the use, access and control of content, data, and information made available on or through the Site and the Services.

Definitions. For purposes of the Terms: (i) “Content” means text, graphics, images, music, software, audio, video, data, works of authorship of any kind, and information or other materials that are posted, generated, provided, transmitted or otherwise made available through the Services; and (ii) “User Content” means any Content that you or any User of your Account provides to be made available through the Services, including, without limitation, any profile information, the content of your communications or postings on the Services, and any other information that you provide to us or another User in connection with the Service.

Our Content Ownership. We do not claim any ownership rights in any User Content, and nothing in the Terms will be deemed to restrict any rights that you may have to use and exploit your User Content. Subject to the foregoing, and as between the parties, we exclusively own all right, title and interest in and to the Services and Content, including all associated intellectual property rights. You acknowledge that the Services and Content are protected by copyright, trademark, and other laws of the United States and foreign countries. You agree not to remove, alter or obscure any copyright, trademark, service mark or other proprietary rights notices incorporated in, or accompanying the Services or Content. You acknowledge and agree that Wellfound does not inquire into the backgrounds of its Users or attempt to verify the Content provided by its Users (although it reserves the right to conduct any background check or other screening at any time using available public sources).

Rights in User Content Granted by You. By making any User Content available through the Services you hereby grant to us a non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, transferable, worldwide, royalty-free license, with the right to sublicense through multiple tiers, to use, copy, modify, create derivative works based upon, distribute, publicly display, and publicly perform your User Content in connection with operating, improving, promoting and providing the Services and Content to you and to other Users.

Your Responsibility for User Content. You are solely responsible for all your User Content. You represent and warrant that you own all your User Content or you have all rights that are necessary to grant us the license rights in your User Content under these Terms. You also represent and warrant that neither your User Content, nor your use and provision of your User Content to be made available through the Services, nor any use of your User Content by us on or through the Services will infringe, misappropriate or violate a third party’s intellectual property rights, rights of publicity or privacy, moral rights, or result in the violation of any applicable law, rule or regulation.

Removal of User Content. You can remove your User Content by specifically deleting it. However, in certain instances, some of your User Content (such as posts or comments you make, your profile information, or messages you send) may not be completely removed, and copies of your User Content may continue to exist on the Services. We are not responsible or liable for the removal or deletion of (or the failure to remove or delete) any of your User Content.

Right to Control Content. Wellfound may, but is not required to, monitor, edit, remove, or in any other manner, control the Content posted via the Site and Services. Our non-exercise of this right does not give you any right to make a claim against a Wellfound Party. Any Content that has been uploaded through the Services may be deleted or modified at any time without notice to you.
