Welcome to www.ovolllo.com and www.Ovolllo.ca (together “Ovolllo”).

You agree to comply with all the below noted terms and conditions when accessing or using our Site or using any of our Services.

- The following terms and conditions apply to all opportunity applicants, opportunity posters, employers, non-profits, and other users who access or use the site, or otherwise indicate their acceptance to this Agreement.
- From here on in volunteer or opportunity applicants will be known as “volunteers” and posters, employers, non-profits or others posting opportunities to Ovolllo will be known as the “organizations”.
- Ovolllo Services
In some instances, Ovolllo will make available specific “Volunteer Opportunity Ads and other Volunteer-related content, including links to third-party websites through Ovolllo’s search results or otherwise through the site. These Volunteer Opportunity Ads are created and provided by third parties over which Ovolllo has no control; you hereby acknowledge and understand we have no control over these Volunteer Opportunity Ads. Some of these third parties will attempt to charge volunteer applicants a fee to apply to a particular Opportunity and although we strive not to allow such Opportunities on the Site. Ovolllo’s service, which is essentially free, links to Opportunity Ads and has no control over any conditions third parties might impose once a volunteer applicant has submitted an application or left the Ovolllo website. If you leave the Ovolllo website and choose to enter a third-party website, you accept any terms and conditions imposed by that third-party. Ovolllo does not have any obligation to screen any Opportunity Ads, or to include any Opportunity Ads in its search results or other listings and may exclude or remove any Opportunity Ads from the Site for any or no reason. We cannot confirm the accuracy or completeness of any Opportunity Listing or other information submitted by any poster or other user, including the identity of such poster or other user. Ovolllo assumes no responsibility, and disclaims all liability, for the content, accuracy, completeness, legality, reliability, or availability of any Opportunity Ads. You agree that Ovolllo may also provide search options to narrow down Opportunity Ads search results by Opportunity type (i.e. cause, or location) and such Opportunity types are created independently and entirely by Ovolllo and are not a direct reflection of the actual Opportunity Ads. Ovolllo ranks Opportunity Ads based on a combination of date of post, boasting, and relevance, such as search terms and other activity on Ovolllo.
In addition, by using Ovolllo, you agree that Ovolllo is not responsible for the content of the Poster’s application form, messages, screener questions, testing assessments or their format or method of delivery and that Ovolllo does not guarantee receipt of your application by the Poster, or your receipt of messages from the Poster. Please note that Ovolllo does not choose the questions asked by Posters or decide the Opportunity qualification criteria of Posters. If you require alternative methods of screening or application, you must approach the Poster directly to request such as Ovolllo is not responsible for the Poster application process.
1(c) Regardless of whether you are a poster or volunteer applicant, when you view, send, store or receive materials (including opportunities, resumes, and messages) through or using the Site, Ovolllo may, for example, use such materials for data analysis, quality control, or to refine the Site or any other Ovolllo product or service, whether via automated means or otherwise. Ovolllo may also inform a volunteer applicant that a poster has taken an action with regards to a volunteer applicant’s Resume or application such as responding to the Resume or application, and making a decision with regards to the application, and you hereby consent to Ovolllo taking such actions. Ovolllo assumes no responsibility, and disclaims all liability, for the content, accuracy, completeness, legality, reliability, or availability of any opportunity, Organization Page, opportunity 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 Ovolllo to do so.
1(i) If you are a volunteer applicant, please note that Ovolllo may automatically send you recommended jobs via the email address you use to create an Ovolllo account or apply to a job. Ovolllo may determine what these recommended jobs are based on an assortment of factors, including but not limited to, any information you input on the Site about yourself, searches you perform on the Site, opportunities you click on, opportunities you apply to, or the materials you provide in an opportunity application to a poster through Ovolllo.

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”).

Ovolllo holds the right to take such action as it considers necessary, including issuing legal proceedings without notice, in relation to any unauthorized use of the Site. We reserve the right at all times (but will not have any obligation) to terminate users at any time with no reason.
With regards to our Fees and Services, using the Site and our services is generally free. We may charge fees for certain Services, such as boasting a post.

If you believe that any User Content violates this Agreement or our policies, please contact Ovolllo immediately so that we may have the opportunity to consider its removal. For clarity, Ovolllo does not have any obligation to remove any User Content, and the interpretation of whether any User Content violates any Ovolllo policy will always remain within the sole discretion of Ovolllo.
Ovolllo 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.
