General

In these terms of business:

  • 'Customer' means any person, company, organisation or firm which purchases Services from us;
  • 'Order Form' means an order for Services on a form provided by us (in any format) and signed by a Customer;
  • 'Services' means all recruitment products and services made available by us from time to time;
  • 'Contract Month' means, in respect of any Order Form relating to the provision of Services for a specified period of months, the calendar month commencing on the start date specified in the Order Form and ending on the day before the same date in the next calendar month. For example, the calendar month commencing on 24 February and ending 23 March;
  • 'Contract Term' means the full term specified in the Order Form.

Regulation

The Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Business Regulations 2003 (the "Regulations") seek to ensure that work-seekers are only proposed by employment agencies for roles for which they are properly qualified and that recruiters are only offered work-seekers who have the appropriate levels of experience, training, qualifications and authorisation for the position to be filled. Since we are only a venue and do not propose or introduce work-seekers to recruiters or vice versa, it is recommended that, if you are a work-seeker you undertake the steps set out in the Regulations to ensure your suitability for the role advertised or, if you are a recruiter, to ensure a work-seeker's suitability for the role.

These could include:

  • checking the identity of the work-seeker
  • ensuring that the work-seeker has the experience, training, qualifications and authorisation required by law or otherwise for the position
  • understanding whether there are any requirements imposed by law or otherwise for you, as the recruiter, to meet to enable a work-seeker to take up a position

In addition, where professional qualifications are required or where work-seekers are to work with vulnerable persons or children, you should obtain copies of the relevant qualifications or authorisation, obtain at least two references from people who are not relatives of the work-seeker and undertake a criminal records bureau check of the work-seeker.

Any searching or screening tools provided by us for use in your assessment of the suitability or otherwise of any particular candidate or advertised vacancy are to assist you in taking these steps but are not intended as a substitute.

Commencement of Services

We will not commence the provision of Services until the Services Agreement has been returned to us and confirmed by the Customer by way of signature, e-mail confirmation or provision of purchase order number.

In the case of Customers who purchase Services on terms that require pre-payment, Services will not commence until payment is received and cleared.

Job Credits

Any Customer can purchase Job Credits to upload job postings on the Website by contacting us .

One Job Credit is for a job posting that can be displayed for 28 days.

Limitation of Liability

Our total liability to the Customer in respect of any Services, except for death or personal injury caused by our negligence, is limited to the total amount paid to us during the Contract Term for such Services.

Job adverts

Job adverts are purchased on a Job Credit basis.

 

Content and format

The content and format of jobs posted on the Website must follow some rules. Their purpose is to ensure that users who search the site or the Website database get results which are presented as clearly and informatively as possible. You agree that we may, at our discretion and without liability to you, remove from the Website any advertisement which is posted in breach of these rules. The rules may change from time to time and you are advised to refer to them regularly.

The Rules are:

  • No duplicating of jobs at the expense of other clients' jobs.
  • No gratuitous use of keywords in job descriptions or job titles. Gratuitous means deliberately inserting words, strings of words, or repeating job titles, with the intention of influencing position in the results listing or increasing the number of page views.
  • No posting of any incomplete, false or inaccurate biographical information or information which is not your own accurate resume.
  • Job advertisements placed on eurosupplychainjobs.com must be for genuine vacancies only, and not for other products or services, either relating to or unrelated to recruitment including, but not limited to, affiliate schemes, pyramid selling schemes or any other so called 'business opportunity'.
  • URLs or email links (live or text only) are not permitted in the body copy of the job description page. Email links are permitted for the “apply” link when candidates submit their application.

Illegal Advertisements

Advertisements which appear to discriminate on grounds of sex, race or disability are illegal and may result in proceedings being taken against both the advertiser and the publisher. Advertisements are accepted by us on the basis that the advertiser confirms that any requirement or qualification which may appear to discriminate illegally is in compliance with any exemption available under the relevant legislation. Notwithstanding this confirmation, if we nonetheless believe that an advertisement may be discriminatory we may at our discretion either amend the advertisement or remove it from the Website without liability to you to make any refund of amounts paid or due to be paid in respect of the posting or otherwise and will inform you accordingly.

Responses to advertisements

You agree to deal fairly and professionally with individuals who may respond to an advertisement you have posted and not do anything which may bring us into disrepute. You will indemnify us from and against any claim brought by an individual against us arising from your breach of this obligation or any other of these terms and conditions.

We do not guarantee any response to your advertisement or that responses will be from individuals suitable for the job advertised. It is your responsibility to carry out such checks and procedures as are necessary to ensure that candidates are suitable for the job advertised and have the required qualifications and personal characteristics.

Equipment

It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the appropriate equipment and are connected to the appropriate services to enable you to post jobs to the Website.

It is the customer’s responsibility to protect their computers against any viruses and malware.

Third Party Sites

Vacancies you post on the Website may also appear on third party recruitment websites pursuant to agreements from time to time between us and the proprietors of such web sites.

Candidate CV Database

Use of the Database

The material you are entitled to receive from the candidate database is determined by the product you have purchased from us. On receipt of this material you may:

  • Use, search or download it to your database using the Candidate Search back office interface and its associated functions for the purpose of finding suitable candidates for specific job vacancies that you or (if you are an employment agency or employment business) your clients wish to fill.
  • Use the information about the individuals contained in the database for the purpose of contacting them (either directly or through the Website, depending on the product you have purchased) in relation to a specific job vacancy.
  • Use the information only in connection with your own recruitment-related activities.

You may not:

  • Supply, sell or license material from the candidate database, or a copy of it, to any other person, including another member of your group of companies.
  • Download the database through any automated (e.g. "scraping") process.
  • Contact the individuals on the database or make or allow any use of the information about those individuals, other than for the purpose of finding suitable candidates for specific job vacancies. You must, at all times, comply with the Data Protection Act 1998 and all subsequent legislation and regulations.
  • Access our candidate database from a system that is not fully patched or does not have industry standard AntiVirus software installed that is regularly updated.

Rights in the Database

Database rights and all other applicable copyright and intellectual property rights in the candidate database belong to us. You acknowledge that you do not acquire any rights in the database or its content and that your retention and use of the database and its content are governed by these terms and conditions.

Deletion of Database Material

You agree to delete all material from the candidate database upon its replacement with up-to-date material or the satisfactory conclusion of your search for a suitable candidate, whichever occurs first.

Dealings with Candidates and personal data

You agree to deal fairly and professionally with individuals you may contact using information from the candidate database and not do anything which may bring us into disrepute. You will indemnify us from and against any claim brought by an individual against us arising from your breach of this obligation or any other of these terms and conditions.

For the sake of clarity and avoidance of doubt, the Customer acknowledges that it is acting as a data controller for the purpose of current data protection legislation in connection with any personal data it obtains in the provision of Services by us. It is the Customer’s responsibility to comply with its obligations as a data controller and to satisfy themselves of the legal grounds for processing any personal data.

We acknowledge that we will act as a data controller for the purposes of current data protection legislation and we will comply with our legal obligations in the provision of Services.

Customer Supplied Content

These terms and conditions apply to all advertising campaigns ('Campaigns') and other material accepted by us for display on any of our websites. By placing any such material, you accept these terms and conditions as principal, even if you are acting as agent or buyer for the third-party advertiser.

Termination

The customer may terminate the provision of services under any order form by no fewer than 30 days’ notice to expire at the end of a contract month. Termination by the customer before the end of the contract term may, at our discretion, result in loss of discounts agreed for the entire contract term.

We may terminate the provision of services if:

  • The customer is in material breach of these terms and conditions and has not remedied such breach within ten days’ notice specifying the breach and requiring that it be remedied
  • The customer becomes insolvent, ceases to trade or goes into liquidation.

We may terminate your registration and/or deny you access to the Website or any part of it (including any services, goods or information available on or through the Website) at any time in our absolute discretion and without any explanation or notification.

Content

You are responsible for the content of material supplied by you, for ensuring that you have the right to supply it to us and that it complies with all relevant legislation and codes of practice. If we receive complaints about any material or its content we may, at our discretion, remove the material from display without reference or liability to you. You will indemnify us against any claim that the material infringes the intellectual property rights or other rights of others or is defamatory or otherwise offensive.

You are also responsible for fulfilling and dealing with any orders or enquiries relating to the goods or services to which a Campaign relates and you will indemnify and hold us harmless accordingly.

Liability and Refund

Your sole remedy if we, or our third-party subcontractors who may host and serve Campaigns from time to time, make an error in displaying any Campaign is the cost of re-running the relevant Campaign.

Neither we, nor our subcontractors, shall be liable in any circumstances for any loss of profit or business. We shall, additionally, have no liability for failure to display the Campaign caused by circumstances outside our control.
