Termination / Cancellation
If you have made comments or posted reviews or reviews have been posted to your public posts those post will remain online to help other members.
POST: READ / WRITE / REVIEW / REWRITE / REMOVE / EDIT / DELETE Policy
One of the best features that really doesn't get much recognition is our review policy.
We review everything from your sign-up information to your postings.
The review policy has two primary goals.
- Language / Spelling
- Anti-Spam / Fake Postings
We will often correct simple mistakes while other times send you an email asking you to rewrite your post before it is approved.
We do this by having a copy sent to us via email.
Everything you publish is read which for many is a blessing because you don't want to say the wrong thing online if your name is attached to it.
We will without notice remove any personal identifiable information placed in the public non member postings and screen random document postings for the same.
We will do our part to keep you safe from Identity Fraud and ask that you take steps to do the same.
Standard Rule: DO NOT PUBLISH YOUR SSN TO ANY WEBSITE EVER!
Unless they are the hiring company and make you an offer which means they send you their hire package with their SSN or Federal Tax ID you do not share anything with them.
Just ask questions before you send your information.
Usage of Message Center, Messaging and Contact form
All messages are screened that are sent between any party to another when using our internal messaging system.
To access any contact information subscription accounts are required. Otherwise, you should use the internal messaging system.
Hiring your Tradesman / Craftsman
For the most part we all are legal to work in the USA. But many in the building industry are not legal or do not have permission to work within the borders of the USA.
When members sign up they are not asked if they are legal to work.
This is not a question we need to ask due to the fact it is a federal law.
If you as a member hire or contract someone that you suspect is not here legally or has workers that you feel are not who they say they are please visit our "How to report Illegal Workers and their Smugglers."
A drivers license or Social Security Card is not a Permission to work. It is a Birth Certificate, Work Visa or Resident Alien card
You have the right to ask and you have the right to say "No, I do not want to hire you."
Keep in mind if you can not communicate you can not have good quality work and you are creating an unsafe work environment if your workers can not understand your safety briefings.
Spam / Abuse Terms
We use third-party and in-house SPAM filtering systems. We reserve the right to BAN any connection to our site that has SPAMMED or ABUSED our services for an indefinite period of time and for any other reason not listed.
If you have been directed here after sending a private message it is due to the fact you are not a member, you have not read the policy on spamming members and you are subject to being reported as a spammer to spam prevention index websites.
When in doubt and all matters not covered
IP address 126.96.36.199 will be registered to with your account.
Employer / Direct Hire Recruiters / Staffing Agency members, please read our Paid Membership Information
Email Security TLS v1.2
Our email server that keeps you updated with job alerts, changes and even password resets is using secure encryption called TLS v1.2.
Nearly all online email servers offer this type of email security. It encrypts your connection between email servers so to prevent anyone from reading your email content.
Some email servers use old or no security with their connections. As of this date we do not support any communications that are not encrypted while in transit. (Server to Server)
Please be advised, if you do not receive your sign up email from us within one or two minutes check the list of domain names that do not support our level of security.
This has nothing to do with how you are using your email software or app. It has everything to do with who you are using for your email account.
- aol.com (Old Security no longer supported TLS)
- mchsi.com (Does not offer any encryption or TLS)
If you are using one of the above email domain addresses please try using one of our recommended and secured with TLS v1.2 email providers as your replacement.
If you are using a private email server or a company email server you should be able to connect with our server fine. If not, use the contact page to ask for assistance.
