Registered users of our Services are “Members” and unregistered users are “Visitors”. This Contract applies to both Members and Visitors.

2.1 Service Eligibility
Here are some promises that you make to us in this Contract:
You’re eligible to enter into this Contract and you are at least our “Minimum Age.”

Creating an account with false information is a violation of our terms, including accounts registered on behalf of others or persons under the age of 16. “Minimum Age” means 16 years old. However, if law requires that you must be older in order for 50plusjobsite.com to lawfully provide the Services to you without parental consent (including using of your personal data) then the Minimum Age is such older age.

You are responsible for anything that happens through your account unless you close it or report misuse.
As between you and others (including your employer), your account belongs to you. However, if the Services were purchased by another party for you to use (e.g. Recruiter seat bought by your employer), the party paying for such Service has the right to control access to and get reports on your use of such paid Service; however, they do not have rights to your personal account.
You will honour your payment obligations and you agree to us storing your payment information. You understand that there may be fees and taxes that are added to our prices.
We do not guarantee refunds.
If you buy any of our paid Services (“Premium Services”), you agree to pay us the applicable fees and taxes and to additional terms specific to the paid Services. Failure to pay these fees will result in the termination of your paid Services. Also, you agree that:
- Your purchase may be subject to foreign exchange fees or differences in prices based on location (e.g. exchange rates).
- We may store and continue billing your payment method (e.g. credit card) even after it has expired, to avoid interruptions in your Services and to use to pay other Services you may buy.
- If you purchase a subscription, your payment method automatically will be charged at the start of each subscription period for the fees and taxes applicable to that period. To avoid future charges, cancel before the renewal date. Learn how to cancel or suspend your Premium Services.

What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small file placed onto your device that enables 50plusjobsite features and functionality. For example, cookies enable us to identify your device, secure your access to 50plusjobsite and our sites generally, and even help us know if someone attempts to access your account from a different device. Cookies also enable you to easily share content on 50plusjobsite and help us serve relevant ads to you.
When does 50plusjobsite place cookies?
What types of cookies does 50plusjobsite use?
We use two types: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie helps us recognize you as an existing user, so it’s easier to return to 50plusjobsite or interact with our services without signing in again. After you sign in, a persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read by 50plusjobsite when you return to one of our sites or a partner site that uses our services (for example, our sharing or job application buttons). Session cookies only last for as long as the session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).
What are cookies used for?
Cookies can be used to recognize you when you visit 50plusjobsite, remember your preferences, and give you a personalized experience that’s in line with your settings. Cookies also make your interactions with 50plusjobsite faster and more secure. Additionally, cookies allow us to bring you advertising both on and off the 50plusjobsite sites, and bring customized features to you through 50plusjobsite plugins
If you are signed in to 50plusjobsite, cookies help us show you the right information and personalize your experience.
Preferences, features and services
We may also work with a partner to show you an ad on or off 50plusjobsite, such as after you’ve visited a partner’s site or application.
Performance, Analytics and Research
What is Do Not Track (DNT)?
DNT is a concept that has been promoted by regulatory agencies such as the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC), for the Internet industry to develop and implement a mechanism for allowing Internet users to control the tracking of their online activities across websites by using browser settings. The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has been working with industry groups, Internet browsers, technology companies, and regulators to develop a DNT technology standard. While some progress has been made, it has been slow. No standard has been adopted to this date. As such, does not generally respond to “do not track” signals.
How are cookies used for advertising purposes?
Cookies and other ad technology such as beacons, pixels, and tags help us serve relevant ads to you more effectively. They also help us provide aggregated auditing, research, and reporting for advertisers, understand and improve our service, and know when content has been shown to you. Note: Because your web browser may request advertisements and beacons directly from third party ad network servers, these networks can view, edit, or set third party cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site. Ads served by 50plusjobsite may also set third party cookies.
If you are a 50plusjobsite member but logged out of your account on a browser, 50plusjobsite may still continue to log your interaction with our services on that browser for up to 30 days in order to generate usage analytics for our services, which analytics we may share in aggregate form with our advertising customers.
Unless you clear these cookies from your browser, we may use this information to:
- provide more relevant, interest-based advertising
- provide aggregate reports of ads activity to advertisers and websites hosting the ads
- help website and app owners understand how visitors engage with their sites or apps
- detect and defend against fraud and other risks to protect users and partners
- improve our products
Most browsers allow you to control cookies through their settings preferences. However, if you limit the ability of websites to set cookies, you may worsen your overall user experience, since it will no longer be personalized to you. It may also stop you from saving customized settings like login information.
What to do if you don’t want cookies to be set or want them to be removed?
If you do not want to receive cookies, you can change your browser settings on your computer or other device you’re using to access our services. If you use 50plusjobsite without changing your browser settings, we will assume that you’re happy to receive all cookies on the 50plusjobsite website. Most browsers also provide functionality that lets you review and erase cookies, including 50plusjobsite cookies. Please note that the 50plusjobsite site will not work properly without cookies.
