Description of Service
Opportunity is a lead generation tool that uses a matching algorithm to bring professionals together to do business.

Our service generates leads based on common needs and location between two individuals.
The Opportunity service is not available to minors under the age of 18 or to any users suspended or removed from the system by Opportunity for any reason. Additionally, users are prohibited from selling, trading, or otherwise transferring their Opportunity account to another party. If you do not qualify, you may not use the Opportunity service.

Safety; Your Interactions with Other Users.
Opportunity strives to encourage a respectful user experience through innovative messaging features (Quick Intro, SMS, etc.), it is not responsible for the conduct of any user on or off of the Services. You agree to use caution in all interactions with other users, particularly if you decide to communicate off the Service or meet in person. In addition, you agree to review and follow Opportunity Safety Tips (especially for Dating Profile Users) prior to using the Service. You should not provide your financial information (for example, your credit card or bank account information), or wire or otherwise send money, to other users.
YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR INTERACTIONS WITH OTHER USERS. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT OPPORTUNITY DOES NOT CONDUCT CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECKS ON ITS USERS OR OTHERWISE INQUIRE INTO THE BACKGROUND OF ITS USERS. OPPORTUNITY MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES AS TO THE CONDUCT OF USERS. OPPORTUNITY RESERVES THE RIGHT TO CONDUCT ANY CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECK OR OTHER SCREENINGS (SUCH AS SEX OFFENDER REGISTER SEARCHES) AT ANY TIME USING AVAILABLE PUBLIC RECORDS.
Recognizing the global nature of the Internet, you agree to comply with all applicable local rules including but not limited to rules regarding online conduct and acceptable content. Specifically, you agree to comply with all applicable laws regarding the transmission of technical data exported from the United States or the country in which you reside.
Information Provided on this Website
In many ways, Opportunity also serves as a search engine that extracts and summarizes information from other sources across the Internet. This information may be inaccurate and we may make mistakes when extracting the information. Opportunity assumes no responsibility regarding the accuracy of the information that is provided by Opportunity. Once we have collected information about a person / company, we combine multiple mentions of the same person into an individual Profile. The resulting Web Summaries are then made available to the public through Opportunity.
Additionally, Opportunity allows users to create and/or update their own Profile. Any information provided by a user to be part of his or her Profile will be available to the public as part of the Opportunity service. Users who create and/or update their own Profile can change or delete any information they provide if they choose to do so. Please use caution when posting personal identifiable information.
Access to Service
Use of manual or automated software, devices, or other processes to “crawl” or “spider” any web pages contained in the Opportunity website is strictly prohibited. You agree not to monitor or copy, or allow others to monitor or copy, our web pages or the content included herein. You also agree not to “frame” or otherwise simulate the appearance or function of this website. Furthermore, you agree not to take any action that interferes with the proper working of or places an unreasonable load on our infrastructure, including but not limited to unsolicited communications, attempts to gain unauthorized access, or transmission or activation of computer viruses.
Uploaded Emails - Third Party Platforms
Growing your network often begins with inviting your existing contacts to join you on a new network like Opportunity. Opportunity simplifies the process by providing an automated way to invite multiple people across a variety of communication platforms (other social networks, email accounts, etc.). Note: Opportunity is not liable for any communication made between our users and members of other networks or the networks themselves. Invitations originating from Opportunity to people outside of the network at the request of our current users are done entirely independent of Opportunity and therefore absolve Opportunity from damages or complaints that may be brought by a recipient or third-party platform.
Monitoring and Enforcement
While we have the right to monitor activity and content associated with Opportunity, we are not o bligated to do so. And since we do not, and may not have the ability to, control or actively monitor content we don't guarantee its accuracy, integrity or quality. Because community standards vary and individuals sometimes choose not to comply with our policies and practices, in the process of using our website, you may be exposed to content that you find offensive or objectionable. You can contact our Customer Service Department to let us know of content that you find objectionable. We may investigate the complaints and violations of our policies that come to our attention and may take any action that we believe is appropriate, including, but not limited to issuing warnings, removing the content or terminating accounts and/or subscriptions. However, because situations and interpretations vary, we also reserve the right not to take any action. Under no circumstances will we be liable in any way for any content, including, but not limited to, any errors or omissions in any content, or any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of, access to, or denial of access to any content on the website.
Signing up for a Basic Opportunity account is free. Opportunity also offers a variety of 'PRO' services that include a monthly fee or annual fee upon upgraded membership. All of these charges are presented clearly to our users during each 'sign-up' process. Subscriptions to Opportunity are billed on either a monthly (every four weeks) or annual (every 12 months) basis from the date of the initial upgrade. Opportunity reserves the right to modify the pricing of, add to, or discontinue an Opportunity service or any portion thereof without prior notice.
Paid members are responsible for keeping their billing information current including expiration dates, billing address, etc. Members whose billing experiences a failure will be notified via email and upon login to their profile. All premium services provided through the membership will cease until updated billing information is provided. Members will have an opportunity to update their billing information to reactivate their membership.
Right of Cancellation
You man cancel registration for the PRO Membership by going to your account page and clicking the Downgrade option and then confirming on the second page. If you need assistance with these directions, please email [email protected]. All PRO members can cancel their PRO memberships at any time. WHEN YOU CANCEL YOUR UPGRADED ACCOUNT, IT WILL REMAIN ACTIVE UNTIL THE END OF YOUR CURRENT SUBSCRIPTION TERM UNLESS OTHERWISE TERMINATED. SUBSCRIPTION FEES WILL NOT BE PRORATED OR REFUNDED FOR PARTIAL USAGE.
Consequences of cancellation
In the event of cancellation, both parties shall be obliged to restore any benefits already received in accordance with legal provisions, and issue any gains (e.g. interest). This means that all activity related to your profile becomes the sole possession of Opportunity including all efforts related to SEO, SEM, etc. So for example, if our SEO efforts get your profile ranked #1 on Google and you decide to cancel, the ranking by virtue of the profile (owned by Opportunity) becomes the possession of Opportunity. Opportunity has the right to use the profile ranking thereafter however it wishes.

Arbitration, Class-Action Waiver, and Jury Waiver.
Except for users residing within the EU or European Economic Area and elsewhere where prohibited by applicable law:
The exclusive means of resolving any dispute or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement (including any alleged breach thereof) or the Service shall be BINDING ARBITRATION administered by the American Arbitration Association under the Consumer Arbitration Rules. The one exception to the exclusivity of arbitration is that you have the right to bring an individual claim against the Company in a small-claims court of competent jurisdiction. But whether you choose arbitration or small-claims court, you may not under any circumstances commence or maintain against the Company any class action, class arbitration, or other representative action or proceeding.
By using the Service in any manner, you agree to the above arbitration agreement. In doing so, YOU GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT to assert or defend any claims between you and the Company (except for matters that may be taken to small-claims court). YOU ALSO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR OTHER CLASS PROCEEDING. Your rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR, NOT A JUDGE OR JURY, and the arbitrator shall determine all issues regarding the arbitrability of the dispute. You are entitled to a fair hearing before the arbitrator. The arbitrator can grant any relief that a court can, but you should note that arbitration proceedings are usually simpler and more streamlined than trials and other judicial proceedings. Decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons. For details on the arbitration process, see our Arbitration Procedures. Any proceeding to enforce this arbitration agreement, including any proceeding to confirm, modify, or vacate an arbitration award, may be commenced in any court of competent jurisdiction. In the event that this arbitration agreement is for any reason held to be unenforceable, any litigation against the Company (except for small-claims court actions) may be commenced only in the federal or state courts located in Florida. You hereby irrevocably consent to the jurisdiction of those courts for such purposes. This Agreement, and any dispute between you and the Company, shall be governed by the laws of the state of Florida without regard to principles of conflicts of law, provided that this arbitration agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. The online dispute settlement platform of the European Commission is available under http://ec.europa.eu/odr. Opportunity does not take part in dispute settlement procedures in front of a consumer arbitration entity for users residing in the EU or European Economic Area.
The User Agreement between you and Opportunity, Inc. will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware without regard to conflict of laws principles.
Opportunity, the Opportunity logo, and other Opportunity logos and names are trademarks of Opportunity, Inc. You agree not to display or use these trademarks in any manner without Opportunity's prior, written permission.
