Candidate Authorization and Release

In connection with my employment search and as a resource for prospective employers, I have voluntarily provided Veridyme Inc. dba SmartApply (“SmartApply”) with the name and contact information of my prior manager(s). I authorize SmartApply to contact my prior manager(s) for the purpose of asking them to verify my employment and to provide the following information:

1. Would you rehire [YOUR NAME]. The manager selects “Yes” or “No.”
2. How would you rate [YOUR NAME]’s performance in the role? The manager selects “Poor,” “Below Average,” “Average,” “Above Average,” or “Exceptional.”

I authorize SmartApply to aggregate the information received from my managers, removing information that identifies a particular manager, and to provide that information to the prospective employers identified by me through the SmartApply site.

To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, I irrevocably waive all legal and equitable rights relating to all liabilities, claims, demands, actions, suits, damages, and expenses, including but not limited to claims for defamation, retaliation, failure to be hired, discrimination or disparate treatment, emotional injury or distress, or any similar claim or cause of action in tort, contract, or any other legal theory, now known or hereafter known in any jurisdiction throughout the world (collectively, “Claims”), arising directly or indirectly from the actions of SmartApply, my prior managers or employers, and any prospective employer, in providing, compiling, and/or reviewing the above information. I hereby covenant not to make or bring any such Claim against SmartApply, a prior manager or employer, or prospective employer, and forever release and discharge each from liability under such Claims. I understand that SmartApply, prior managers and employers identified by me, and prospective employers identified by me, are relying on this Authorization and Release, and I agree that this Authorization and Release cannot be terminated, rescinded, or modified, in whole or in part.

I represent and warrant to SmartApply that I am at least eighteen years of age and that I have full right, power, and authority to enter into this Authorization and Release. I further represent and warrant to SmartApply that I will provide only true and correct statements and other information in connection with this Authorization and Release.

All matters arising out of or relating to this Authorization and Release shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Colorado without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule (whether of the State of Colorado or any other jurisdiction).

THIS AGREEMENT PROVIDES MY ABSOLUTE AND UNCONDITIONAL AUTHORIZATION, WAIVER, AND RELEASE OF LIABILITY AS SET OUT ABOVE. BY CHECKING THE BOX STATING “I HAVE READ AND AGREE TO THE SmartApply RATINGS WAIVER,” I ACKNOWLEDGE THAT I HAVE READ AND UNDERSTOOD THIS AGREEMENT AND THAT I AM GIVING UP SUBSTANTIAL LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO SUE SmartApply, PRIOR MANAGERS OR EMPLOYERS, AND/OR PROSPECTIVE EMPLOYERS.
