The following terms and conditions apply to all Job Seekers, Employers, Publishers, and other users who access or use the Site, or otherwise indicate their acceptance to this Agreement.
Rhonda is an artificial intelligence, virtual assistant and workforce management platform built to automate thousands of tasks. The platform provides information and analytics about employee and supervisor performance, training and safety based on a check-in and rating system. Analytics go back over a period of weeks, months, and years to report employee’s average performance rating, certification levels, attendance, work anniversaries, incident reports, current employment status etc…
Using AI technology, Rhonda learns just like any other employee, gaining experience and additional capabilities through predictive analytics. You acknowledge and understand that by agreeing to these Terms, you allow Rhonda to communicate with you through SMS, email, or by phone in a multitude of languages.
Rhonda may make available certain job listings and other job-related contents, including links to third-party websites (such listings and other contents, (“Job Listings” or “Job Ads”), through Rhonda’s search results or otherwise through the Site. Job Listings are created and provided by third parties over whom Rhonda exercises no control; you acknowledge and understand that we have no control over Job Listings. Except for certain sponsored, featured or paid placements, the Job Listings contained on, or linked from, the Site are indexed or posted in an automated manner. Rhonda does not have any obligation to screen any Job Listing, or to include any Job Listing in its search results or other listings, and may exclude or remove any Job Listing from the Site for any or no reason. We cannot confirm the accuracy or completeness of any Job Listing or other information submitted by any employer or other user, including the identity of such employer or other user. Rhonda assumes no responsibility, and disclaims all liability, for the content, accuracy, completeness, legality, reliability, or availability of any Job Listing. You agree that Rhonda may also provide search filters to narrow down Job Listing search results by job type (i.e. full-time, part-time, etc.), and such job types are created independently outside of Rhonda.
In addition, by using Rhonda, you agree that Rhonda is not responsible for the content of the Employer’s application form, messages, screener questions, testing assessments or their format or method of delivery and that Rhonda does not guarantee receipt of your application by the Employer, or your receipt of messages from the Employer. Please note that Rhonda does not choose the questions asked by Employers or decide the job qualification criteria of Employers. If you require alternative methods of screening or application you must approach the Employer directly to request such as Rhonda is not responsible for the Employer application process.
By using Rhonda Apply and answering screener questions, you acknowledge that Employers may have instructed Rhonda to send out rejection notices if you have not answered the questions in a manner that the Employer so wishes, and you acknowledge that Rhonda has no discretion in the transmission of these rejections.
Rhonda shall store such information regardless of whether a job vacancy has been filled. Rhonda may use your application materials (including public resumes and responses to screener questions) to determine whether you may be interested in a Job Listing, and Rhonda may reach out to you about such Job Listing. Rhonda does not guarantee the identity of an Employer or any individuals working for any Employers, and cautions Job Seekers when applying to jobs. Rhonda does not guarantee the validity of a job offer and cautions Job Seekers to verify the validity of a job offer before taking an adverse action regarding their current employment situations. Job Seekers are solely responsible for verifying the accuracy of any Employer or job offer.
Specifically, when you create an Rhonda account, Rhonda may require that you verify your identity through a service called __________________. By using ________________, you are submitting your identification documents for verification directly to ________________, you are agreeing to share your identification with ________________, and you agree that ________________ is solely responsible for any use or loss of data. Rhonda may have access to your identification documents via ________________.
You also agree that, as a service to Job Seekers, Rhonda may activate its Rhonda Apply relay function for use in connection with such Job Listing, and that any Job Seekers who wish to indicate an interest in such Job Listing may only do so through Rhonda Apply, and that Rhonda will send applications to the email address you provide us with.
When you use the Rhonda Apply relay function, you acknowledge and agree that Rhonda may add certain functions into the email, which allows you to take actions regarding the Job Seeker including setting up an interview, viewing a resume and rejecting a candidate, and that you consent to Rhonda monitoring and analyzing these actions.
When using the Rhonda Apply function, Rhonda will attempt to send applications to the contact information provided to Rhonda by you, the Employer. Rhonda has no ability to verify the contact information provided by You. In the event You provide incorrect contact information, it shall be your responsibility to correct, appropriately respond, or take any steps necessary to protect the privacy of such Job Seekers, and you indemnify Rhonda for any damages resulting therefrom. In addition, Rhonda may, on your behalf, send out reminder emails and or text messages to Job Seekers you wish to interview.
Rhonda may also send emails to Job Seekers on your behalf indicating that your Job Listing is potentially a match for the Job Seeker’s resume. Rhonda is not responsible for the content of your emails, application form, screener questions or their format, and disclaims all liability for such content, including as to whether such content is legal.
Rhonda further does not guarantee delivery, your receipt of the Job Seeker’s emails or application materials, or that there will be no mistakes in the transmission or storage of the data. When you use screener questions, you may be given the option to instruct Rhonda to send out rejection notices if the Job Seeker has not answered the questions in the manner set forth in the online instruction. If you choose such option, you agree you are instructing us to send out rejection notices to such candidates and set them to rejected in your Employer dashboard.
You further acknowledge that Rhonda has no discretion in the transmission or storage of these rejections (which is purely mechanical), that transmission or storage is not guaranteed, and that the Job Seeker may not have answered the screener questions accurately. Rhonda does not verify the identity of any Job Seekers who apply to your job listing, nor does Rhonda know a Job Seeker’s motivation for applying to your job listing, and thus provides no guarantee as to the Job Seeker’s qualifications or interest in your job listing.
You agree that Rhonda Apply is presented to you without warranty and Rhonda assumes no responsibility for the communications between you and the Job Seeker, which communications are yours’ and the Job Seekers’ sole responsibility. By using any automated phone screen product, you agree that you are requesting Rhonda to send a Job Seeker a telephone number, which the Job Seeker may call with the purpose of answering your telephone screening questions. You agree these questions are part of your application process, are solely determined by you, and are not being asked by Rhonda.
You agree that Rhonda may reject or remove any Job Listing, any part of any Career Page, or any questions for Job Seekers for any or no reason. You shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless Rhonda, its agents, affiliates, and licensors from any third-party claim or liability (including without limitation reasonable legal fees) arising out of any Career Page created by you, or any Job Listing or screener questions (or answers thereto) posted by you, or any message sent by you (including any questions for Job Seekers contained in any of the foregoing). Rhonda may provide analytics data regarding your Employer account to anyone at your company at Rhonda’s discretion.
To the extent permitted by law, if you have an unpaid or outstanding invoice or account balance for any Rhonda product, Rhonda reserves the right to suspend or terminate your use of that Rhonda product as well as any other Rhonda product, including but not limited to those Rhonda products where you do not have an unpaid invoice or account balance.
1(c) Regardless of whether you are an Employer or Job Seeker, when you view, send, store or receive materials (including Job Listings, resumes, and messages) through or using the Site, Rhonda may, for example, use such materials for data analysis, quality control, or to refine the Site or any other Rhonda product or service (including to provide better search results and other listings for Job Seekers and Employers), whether via automated means or otherwise. When you view, send, store or receive materials through or using the Site, Rhonda may also inform a Job Seeker that an Employer has taken an action with regards to a Job Seeker’s Resume or application such as opening the Resume or application, viewing the Resume or application and making a decision with regards to the application, and you hereby consent to Rhonda taking such actions. Rhonda assumes no responsibility, and disclaims all liability, for the content, accuracy, completeness, legality, reliability, or availability of any job listing, Career Page, job solicitation, screener question, answer to screener question, resume information you post, send or receive through the Site. If you see any inaccuracy in any such material, it is your responsibility to correct such information or to contact Rhonda to do so.
1(d) Regardless of whether you are an Employer or Job Seeker, Rhonda may use application materials (including resumes and responses to screener questions) and the recency of your activity on Rhonda to determine whether the words of any Job Seeker’s resume and answers to screener questions match the words of a Job Listing or Resume query, and vice-versa. Regardless of whether you are an Employer or Job Seeker, you agree and consent that Rhonda may differentiate those matching resumes and screener questions from those that do not match, and present them to Employers as matches or not matches. Rhonda may also use such information in order to improve the Site or any other Rhonda product or service (including by displaying or otherwise making available potentially relevant Job Listings and resumes to Job Seekers and Employers).
1(e) Regardless of whether you are an Employer or Job Seeker, Rhonda may provide certain categories of information to you for informational purposes only. For example, Rhonda may provide you with data regarding estimated salaries for a certain Job Listing, or about estimated applies to a Job Listing you may receive as an Employer. These figures provided by Rhonda are estimates given for informational purposes only, and they are subject to change or varying levels of accuracy. With respect to information regarding estimated applies, if you are an Employer participating in the Rhonda Ads Program, please note that this is not the information you are purchasing from Rhonda and you are not charged per apply. Rhonda may also include salary estimations on pages other than Job Listings on the Site. Please note that all salary figures are approximations based upon multiple third party submissions to Rhonda. These figures are given to Rhonda users for the purpose of generalized comparison only. Minimum wage may differ by jurisdiction and you should consult the employer for actual salary figures.
1(f) Regardless of whether you are an Employer or Job Seeker, Rhonda may provide certain types of career-related or hiring-related information on its Site. All information contained in any Rhonda career or hiring guide is for informational purposes only, and is in no way to be construed as professional career counseling or staffing services. You understand that Rhonda may give suggestions or information regarding best-practices, however, you understand that it is ultimately your responsibility to determine how to pursue your job search or candidate search. You further understand that in providing any such career or hiring guides, Rhonda is not acting as a job placement agency or staffing firm. You also understand that by referring to or using such career or hiring guides, you are not guaranteed job interviews, job placement, assurance of being hired, job candidates, or hires, and you take full responsibility for use of these services or guides.
1(g) Regardless of whether you are an Employer or Job Seeker, Rhonda may provide you an online questionnaire relating to your industry and/or your hiring or job searching needs. Rhonda may match a Job Seeker’s responses to such questionnaires to determine, on the basis of the Employer’s responses to a questionnaire about its industry and/or hiring needs, whether such Job Seeker would match the Employer’s hiring criteria as specified in the Employer’s questionnaire responses. In the event Rhonda determines that a Job Seeker matches the Employer’s hiring criteria, Rhonda may connect such matching Job Seeker and Employer by sending a note informing both parties of the match, including but not limited to sending an Employer a short description of a Job Seeker taken directly from the Job Seeker’s responses to the questionnaire.
In all events you will know what data we are providing to either a Job Seeker or Employer, or upon which we relied to make the match, because you have actively submitted it. If the Employer and Job Seeker express interest in each other, you agree Rhonda may provide the Employer with an email address for the Job Seeker either provided by Rhonda or the Job Seeker and, if you are a Job Seeker, you consent to this. Regardless of whether you are an Employer or Job Seeker, by submitting the completed questionnaire, you agree and consent to Rhonda (i) conducting such matching, utilizing only material you have submitted through the questionnaire process, (ii) presenting matching Job Seekers to Employers, and vice versa and (iii) storing and analyzing such data submitted in response to such online questionnaires.
1(h) If you are a Job Seeker, you take a variety of actions on our Site. For example, you search for jobs, and Rhonda knows and stores the titles of jobs you search for and click on, where those jobs are located, any information, including salary interest or experience of which you have informed Rhonda, or the general salary range or experience level of the jobs you view (if indicated on the Job Listings), the Job Listings you apply to, your amount of activity or time of most recent activity on Rhonda, or any of your other behavior on the Rhonda site, when you use Rhonda. You know exactly what this data is because you are the person who undertook the activity and the data pertains only to your activity. If you have an Rhonda account or an Rhonda-hosted resume, you agree that Rhonda may use this observed factual data to suggest jobs to you and to suggest you or your public resume to Employers that might be interested in a person who matches your behavior on Rhonda. You also agree that Rhonda may contact you based on this observed behavior for Employers or for Rhonda itself. Please note, although information may be sent to you by a third party through the Rhonda system, the aforementioned behavior does not include information relayed to you. However, Rhonda may publicly display the fact that you have recently used the Rhonda Site or the fact that you have recently used the Rhonda system to correspond with a third party. In addition, if you are located in the United States and you set your Resume to public, this means that Rhonda may share all of the aforementioned information about yourself with third-party Employers. If you do not wish to share such information, you may set your Resume to private.
1(i) If you are a Job Seeker, please note that Rhonda may automatically send you recommended jobs via the email address or phone number you use to create an Rhonda account or apply to a job. Rhonda may determine what these recommended jobs are on the basis of a variety of factors, including but not limited to, any information you input on the Site about yourself, searches you run on the Site, jobs you click on, jobs you apply to, or the materials you provide in a job application to an Employer through Rhonda.
1(j) Screening Tools: Rhonda may make screening tools available to Employers for Employer use in the application process, including screener questions, phone screen tools and employee assessments. Rhonda is licensing these tools to you for your use as you determine. By using any screening product, made available to you by Rhonda, you agree that you have made the determination to use these tools as part of your application process, and the substantive questions you ask or choose are solely determined by you, and are not being asked by Rhonda.
You are the sole party to determine which answers will qualify a candidate. You are solely responsible for the use of the screening tool including any results which are considered to have a “disparate impact”. You further acknowledge that you are responsible for offering alternative methods of screening, if so required by the Americans with Disabilities Act or any other equivalent state act.
Rhonda does not warrant that the method of delivery of these questions would be compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act or any equivalent state act. You the Employer agree to indemnify Rhonda for any and all claims arising out of an Employer’s use of a Screening Tool, including any claims that any screening tool does not comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act or that such Screening Tool results in a “disparate impact”.
1(k) Regardless of whether you are a Job Seeker or an Employer, any emails or email notifications corresponding with any actions you take on the Site through the Rhonda Apply process are provided solely as a courtesy. Rhonda disclaims all warranties with regards to the transmission or storage of such courtesy notices, does not guarantee their delivery or receipt, and does not guarantee the date or time at which they may be sent. Further, if you are an Employer and you posted a Job Listing directly on Rhonda, applications are sent only to your Rhonda dashboard; any other notifications you may receive are provided solely as a courtesy to you.
The Site contains links to other sites on the Internet which are owned and/or operated by third-party vendors and other third parties (the “External Sites”). You acknowledge that Rhonda is not responsible or liable for any such third parties or for the availability of, or the materials located on or through, any External Sites. You should contact the site administrator or webmaster for the applicable External Site if you have any concerns regarding such links or the materials located on an External Site.
In addition, Rhonda may provide you with links to certain third party sites that offer you services for your use or benefit. We may stop offering any such third party sites or services at any time. If you choose to use such third party sites or services, you enter into an agreement with such third party alone at your own risk. When entering into an agreement with such parties, you are giving them your data directly and your rights and their obligations are determined by their privacy policies and terms of service. We are not responsible for any content or services provided these third parties, and disclaim all liability from anything that may occur when you utilize such third parties. We are additionally not responsible for any payment that may be asked of you by such third party. You will be notified on the site that these are third party sites and services, and not Rhonda.
You are not permitted to use Rhonda’s Site or its content other than for non-commercial purposes. Use of any automated system or software, whether operated by a third party or otherwise, to extract data from the Site (such as screen scraping or crawling) is prohibited. Rhonda reserves the right to take such action as it considers necessary, including issuing legal proceedings without further notice, in relation to any unauthorized use of the Site. If you wish to make commercial use of the Site, if you wish to make use of the Site in any capacity other than that of a Jobseeker or Employer, or if you wish to purchase Rhonda services that utilize the Site, you must have a prior written agreement with Rhonda to do so, or have accepted Rhonda’s online terms of service. Please contact us for more information. We reserve the right at all times (but will not have any obligation) to terminate users, and reclaim usernames or URLs, for any reason.
Some parts of the Site, such as message boards and forums, may allow users to post Job Listings, resumes, information, text, images, audio, video, messages, and other materials (any such materials that a user submits, posts, displays, or otherwise makes available on or through the Site is referred to herein as “User Content”). Such functionality is designed to help users obtain career and company information, facilitate communication, discuss ways to make career decisions, and to let users know of jobs. User Content is provided by third-party contributors, many of whom may use anonymous screen names.
User Content may be inaccurate, incomplete, misleading or deceptive. For example, the Site hosts Company Pages, which allow User Content to be posted by individuals that may not be affiliated with the Company who owns the Company Page, including but not limited to the answers to Q&A questions on Company Pages. Rhonda does not endorse and is not responsible for any User Content, including any opinion, advice, information, or statement contained therein. You acknowledge that by accessing the Site, you may come into contact with content (including User Content) that you find harmful, offensive, threatening, indecent or objectionable, including, but not limited to, explicit language and other potentially offensive material, and you acknowledge that Rhonda shall have no liability with respect to such content.
You must not post any User Content that is unlawful, fraudulent, discriminatory, threatening, abusive, libelous, defamatory, obscene or otherwise objectionable, or that contains sexual, ethnic, racial or other discriminating slurs, or that contains no relevant or constructive content. You must also not post any User Content that contains proprietary information, trade secrets, confidential information, advertisements, solicitations, chain letters, pyramid schemes, investment opportunities, or other unsolicited commercial communication (except as otherwise expressly permitted by us in writing), or encourages or causes spamming or flooding.
You are prohibited from posting any User Content containing official identification information (whether your own or of another person), such as social security number, passport number, national identification number, insurance number, driver’s license number, immigration number, or any other similar number, code, or identifier. Posting such identification information may lead to identity theft and other adverse consequences. Rhonda may remove any such identification information, but does not undertake any obligation to do so, and has no responsibility and disclaims all liability for any posting of such identification information. Rhonda reserves the right to change the display of resume on its Site, including, but not limited to, hiding fields, rearranging its format, and changing visual elements.
Although Rhonda has no obligation to do so, Rhonda may monitor User Content, and reserves the right to delete any User Content or portion thereof that, in Rhonda’s sole discretion, violates the above rules, including any User Content that is unrelated to the specific portion of the Site on which it is posted, or that is an advertisement, recruiting or other commercial message, or that Rhonda deems in its sole discretion to be inappropriate. If you believe that any User Content violates this Agreement or our policies, please contact Rhonda immediately so that we may have the opportunity to consider its removal. For clarity, Rhonda does not have any obligation to remove any User Content, and the interpretation of whether any User Content violates any Rhonda policy will always remain within the sole discretion of Rhonda.
Rhonda reserves the right to disclose all User Content and other relevant information, and the circumstances surrounding their transmission, to any third party in connection with operating the Site; to protect itself, its affiliates, its partners and its visitors; and to comply with legal obligations or governmental requests. This means, for example, that Rhonda may honor subpoenas, search warrants, law enforcement or court-mandated requests to reveal a user’s electronic address and identity, or other properly requested information. As an Employer, when you post a Job Listing on Rhonda that you choose to list as confidential, your identity may be discoverable by request from the government or law enforcement.
Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Rhonda reserves the right (but is under no obligation) to remove any Job Listing that directly or indirectly discriminates against Job Seekers. Direct discrimination means, for example, that a Job Listing specifically makes clear that only Job Seekers matching a certain criteria are wanted, thereby excluding others because of, for example, their gender, race, age or disability. Indirect discrimination means, for example, that a Job Listing implicitly excludes certain classes of Job Seekers by making it impossible for them to qualify for the job requirements. You understand and agree that it is your responsibility to refrain from posting any Job Listing that directly or indirectly discriminate against Job Seekers or otherwise violate applicable law.
Please note: Section 230 of the U.S. Communications Decency Act provides that:
(1) Treatment of publisher or speaker

Notwithstanding the foregoing, to the extent any Employer(s) submits photographs to Rhonda for association with a particular Job Listing, Rhonda shall not post such content anywhere other than the Employer(s)’s Job Listing.
You represent and warrant that: (i) you own the User Content that you submit, post, display, or otherwise make available on or through the Site, or that you otherwise have the right to grant the license set forth in this section, (ii) such User Content, and its submission, posting, display or availability on or through the Site does not violate applicable law or the privacy rights, publicity rights, copyrights, contract rights, intellectual property rights or any other rights of any person or entity, and (iii) such submission, posting, display or availability on or through the Site does not result in any breach of contract between you and any third party.
You agree to pay for all royalties, fees, damages, and any other monies owed to any person or entity by reason of such User Content.

If you wish to request to revoke the license granted by you in this Section for any such User Content, please send a certified letter of request to the postal address listed above with a copy of your passport or national identity card (for identity verification purposes) and request removal of such User Content.
Your certified letter of request must include (a) the signature of the applicable rights holder for such User Content or a person authorized to act on behalf of the rights holder; (b) identification of the User Content for which the license is to be revoked, and information reasonably sufficient to allow Rhonda to locate and remove such User Content on the Site; (c) your name, address, telephone number, and email address; (d) a statement that you have a good faith belief that you are the rights holder or authorized by the rights holder to revoke the license for the designated User Content; and (e) a statement that the information in the request is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are the rights holder or are authorized to act on behalf of the rights holder with respect to such User Content. There may be a charge for answering and executing such a request; please contact Rhonda for more details.
At your discretion, you may provide feedback and related materials to Rhonda concerning the functionality and performance of the Site from time to time, including, without limitation, identifying potential errors, improvements, modifications, bug fixes, or enhancements (“Feedback”). If you, through your evaluation or otherwise, provide any Feedback, you hereby grant to Rhonda a nonexclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, sublicensable (through multiple layers of sublicensees) right and license to make, use, sell, sublicense, reproduce, distribute, perform, display, prepare derivative works from and otherwise exploit all such Feedback for any purpose without restriction. You agree that Rhonda may disclose any or all Feedback to any third party in any manner, and you agree that Rhonda may sublicense any or all Feedback in any form to any third party without restriction. By providing any Feedback, you agree that your provision of such Feedback is gratuitous, unsolicited and without restriction, and will not place Rhonda under any fiduciary, confidentiality or other obligation, and that we are free to use such Feedback without any additional compensation to you, and free to disclose such Feedback on a non-confidential basis or otherwise to anyone. You further acknowledge that, by accepting any Feedback, Rhonda does not waive any rights to use similar or related ideas previously known to Rhonda, or developed by its employees, or obtained from sources other than you.
Finally, if you are a member of Rhonda Academy, your use of the Graduate logos is limited to your individual use only, and solely for purposes of indicating your Graduate status. Use of the Graduate logo to represent organizations or for commercial purposes is not permitted. Further, you agree and acknowledge that you will not make any representation that you are recruiting on behalf of Rhonda, working for Rhonda, or in any form of co-employment or contractor relationship with Rhonda. Additionally, nothing contained herein shall be construed to imply a joint venture, partnership, principal-agent relationship or employer-employee relationship between you and Rhonda, and neither Party shall have the right, power or authority to obligate or bind the other in any manner whatsoever, except as otherwise agreed to in writing. If you make any representation to the contrary, Rhonda may remove you from Rhonda Academy in its sole discretion.

In some instances, multiple users may be linked to the same account (“a Linked Account”). A Linked Account is created when the primary account owner(s) (“Admin(s)”) of an Employer account invites other users to the same account. Admin(s) may be given the option to give these other users certain levels of access and functionality (“Roles”) within the account, as described on the site. If you are an Admin adding a user to a Role or several Roles, you represent to Rhonda that you are an authorized representative of this account and that you have the authority to allow this data and access to be shared.

You agree that Rhonda assumes no liability in regards to the accuracy of the statements above and that you are fully responsible for said accuracy. When using a Linked Account, any users with access to certain Roles may have access to any or all account information, including but not limited to: communications and actions of all other users and applicants within the Linked Account, resume contacts, and billing information, and you consent to such access.
We reserve the right at all times (but will not have an obligation) to terminate users or to reclaim usernames or URLs.
You agree that Rhonda may, as part of its services to you, communicate with you, or initiate communication with you on behalf of a third party, through your Rhonda account or through other means such as email, telephone (including mobile phone), or postal mail, including through the use of contact information that you may provide to Rhonda or that Rhonda may otherwise obtain from third-party sources. By providing Rhonda with a mobile phone number, you expressly consent to receiving communication via such mobile number. When you give Rhonda a mobile number and consent to receiving communication, such communications are inherent to the services you have signed up for, and you may not revoke such consent without discontinuing use of Rhonda’s services.

U.S. Copyright Infringement. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA“) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that materials hosted by Rhonda infringe your copyright, you (or your agent) may send us a notice requesting that the material be removed, or access to it blocked. The notice must include the following information as required by 17 USC. § 512(c)(3)(A): (a) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (b) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed (or if multiple copyrighted works located on the site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works); (c) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow Rhonda to locate the material on the site; (d) the name, address, telephone number, and email address (if available) of the complaining party; (e) a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and (f) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed. If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send Rhonda a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.loc.gov/copyright/ for details. Notices and counter-notices with respect to the Site should be sent in writing to Rhonda Copyright Notice, 6433 Champion Grandview Way, Building 1, Austin, TX, 78750, USA (copyright @ Rhonda.com) (remove spaces when sending email). We suggest that you consult your legal advisor before filing a notice or counter-notice. Also, be aware that there are penalties for false claims under the DMCA.
