General Help Information
(ii) Welcome to the internet website known as the Bermuda Job Board operated by the Government of Bermuda, Department of Workforce Development ("Government", "we", "our" or "us") which owns this internet website. Our internet website offers a variety of resources and information, some or all of which may be accessed through a variety of means.
B. ABOUT THIS SITE AND THESE TERMS
1. ENSURING QUALITY OF CONTENT
1.1 To ensure equal exposure for all positions advertised on site, job adverts may only be updated/amended a maximum of 5 times per day.
1.2 Once a job has been added and a created date has been generated, this date may only be changed with the permission of Bermuda Job Board
1.3 Each position may be posted once only. Posting duplicates of the same job gives unrealistic search results and is deeply frustrating for job seekers.
1.4 It should be made clear in the job description if a jobseeker is not applying for a specific position, but rather their resume is being added to a bank of resumes for future positions that may arise.

14.3 Any other interactive services.
14.4 Where we do provide any interactive service, we will provide clear information to you about the kind of service offered, if it is moderated and what form of moderation is used (including whether it is human or technical).
14.5 We will do our best to assess any possible risks for users (and in particular, for children) from third parties when they use any interactive service provided on our site, and we will decide in each case whether it is appropriate to use moderation of the relevant service (including what kind of moderation to use) in the light of those risks.

14.6 The use of any of our interactive services by a minor is subject to the consent of their parent or guardian. We advise parents who permit their children to use an interactive service that it is important that they communicate with their children about their safety online, as moderation is not foolproof. Minors who are using any interactive service should be made aware of the potential risks to them.
14.7 Where we do moderate an interactive service, we will normally provide you with a means of contacting the moderator, should a concern or difficulty arise.
