Terms & Conditions
Thanks for choosing to be a part of the Cleveland Talent Alliance. We here at the Cleveland Talent Alliance (“Talent Alliance”) want you to have the best experience possible, which is subject to these Terms and Conditions of Participation (“Terms”). These Terms set out the rules and conditions governing your engagement with the Talent Alliance. Please take a moment to read these Terms and please let us know if you have any questions regarding their meaning or application. If you do not agree to these Terms, please contact us immediately and we will remove you from the program.
1. WHAT IS THE PROGRAM
The Cleveland Talent Alliance (the “Program”) has embarked on an innovative project to attract more people to live and work in The Land. A key part of this project hinges on connecting newcomers to welcoming residents - namely, YOU. The newly created Move to Cleveland website will showcase to potential and new residents all that makes our city great.
Before you can participate in our Program, you will need complete an application giving us enough information to process your request to be a part of the Program (the “Application”). Once we have a completed Application from you, that’s where we come in. Our software will sort people into lists based on where they would like to live and/or what topics they’d like more information about. From there, we’ll assign them to a “Resident Ambassador” with local knowledge to answer their questions.
On the Program website, prospective residents (“Newcomers”) can fill out a series of short forms, answering questions about:
- What kind of job and industry they’re interested in;
- Community and lifestyle preferences; and
- Hobbies and interests
You can complete an application here: Newcomer Application
3. RESIDENT AMBASSADORS
To be considered as a Resident Ambassador you must:
- be at least 18 years old;
- not have been found to have breached these Terms in the past; and
- currently reside in Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, Medina, or Ashtabula counties.
To be considered as a Newcomer and be matched with a Resident Ambassador you must:
- be at least 18 years old;
- not have been found to have breached these Terms in the past; and
- currently reside outside of Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, Medina, or Ashtabula counties or recently located to one of these counties in the last 24 months.

By choosing to participate in the Program, you may be provided with personal information such as a person’s name, age, contact information, work experience or other identifying information (“Personal Information”). Your Personal Information may also be shared with third parties.
In your enrollment into the Program, you agree to:

- use your real identity and not attempt to misguide or misinform others; and

You further agree not to:
- act in an unlawful way or in any other way that would be detrimental to the Program or other users, including, without limitation, acts of dishonesty, abuse, discrimination or hatefulness.

We want all of our Newcomers and Resident Ambassadors to have a safe, fun and rewarding experience in the Program and will not tolerate any Newcomer or Resident Ambassador harming or attempting to harm other participants. Therefore, you can report any abuse or complain about any communication you may have through the Program by contacting Sara Greicius, Director of the Cleveland Talent Alliance, at email@example.com and explaining what you’re experiencing (please be prompt and specific so we can attempt to help).
We always want you to be safe and secure. With that said, we are simply not your best, first option to respond and/or resolve emergency situations. If you ever feel in personal danger or feel that your safety is at risk, please call your local safety authorities (e.g., police or security). Let us know about the problem after you have done that and we will take whatever measures we can to help address the underlying situation on our end.
