Terms of Use for Employers

Your acceptance of these Terms of Use for Employers

Please read these Terms of Use carefully. These Terms of Use apply to the Springsyple jobs services for employers and complete the General Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy. By completing the registration process, you represent that:

  • You have read, understand, and agree to be bound by these Terms of Use, the General Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy;
  • You have the authority to enter into the agreement personally or on behalf of the company you have named, and to bind that company to the agreement with Springsyple.

In case of conflict between these Terms of Use on the one hand and the General Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy on the other hand, these Terms of Use will prevail.

  1. 'Customer' means any person, company, organization or firm purchasing jobs services for employers from Springsyple;
  2. 'Order Form' means an order for Services on a form provided by us (in any format) and approved by a Customer;
  3. 'Services' means all recruitment products and services made available by us from time to time;
  4. ‘Terms of Use’ means this document and in addition the General Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy as available on our Site.

The services

Every company registered on the Site is able to post an unlimited number of jobs for free. In order to attract as much candidates as possible, Springsyple creates a cash reward solution that need to be financed by Customers.

Each Customer has his own rewards account for the payment of rewards for jobs he lists on the Site. This rewards account is used to deduct the reward and the fee charged by Springsyple and has no expiration date. It remains available for rewards as long as it has not been used.

Except otherwise agreed, the rewards account remains at the Customer’s disposal for distribution of rewards but automatically becomes the property of Springsyple and will not be refunded.

Springsyple also provides additional Services limited to a time period. If any Services to be used within any time period specified on the Order Form are not used within that period of time they may not be carried over into any subsequent period without our prior written consent. The Customer will be responsible for payment for any unused Services.

We never display a reward value for a job listed on the Site before:

  1. Customer agrees with these Terms of Use and the order in a form provided or approved by Springsyple and confirmed via the Site, signature or e-mail confirmation;
  2. Customer feeds its rewards account with a sufficient amount;
  3. Customer payment is received and processed by Springsyple.

A job listed on the site will remain live for 30 days or such shorter time as we agree with the Customer. Any extension can be set from the editing page of the job. A single job is identified by its unique ID number.

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

Jobs you post on the Site may also appear on third party recruitment websites pursuant to agreements from time to time between Springsyple and the proprietors of such websites.

The Site supports the current and most recent previous versions of all popular browsers. If your browser is not supported, you most of time may still be able to access our site, but you may encounter some display issues.

Springsyple.com also requires recruiters to enable session cookies (enabling permanent cookies is recommended), and JavaScript, in their browser.

Using Springsyple does not imply a replacement of the internal referencing solution made available by the employer to its employees for job also listed on the site. The employer has the possibility to exclude members of its staff from the reward system putted in place by Springsyple. In this case a precise statement will be posted on the jobs of the employer. The employer may, through its settings, disable or enable this exclusion.

Pricing and payment

When you feed your rewards account, a flat fee of 20% is deducted from the total amount you provide. Any discounts agreed are confidential and may not be disclosed by the Customer except those publicly known.

Additional services could be bought at the prices specified in the Springsyple services rate cards displayed on the Site and are guaranteed for the period stated on the order form.

All prices exclude VAT and taxes. All invoices are payable before We start to provide services as mentioned on the order.

Reference to customer’s name, trademarks and logo’s

Customer agrees that Springsyple may use the Customer's name, trademarks and logos in the context of providing its services.

Additionally, Customer agrees that Springsyple may mention Customer as a reference in Springsyple’s marketing materials (such as but not limited to websites and brochures), that Springsyple may use the Customer's name, trademarks and logos in this context and may present examples of the services provided to and the materials published on behalf of Customer.

The rules are:

  1. No duplicating of jobs at the expense of other clients' jobs.

Advertisements

Illegal Advertisements

Any advertisements (including jobs that will be listed on the Site) 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 Springsyple 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 Springsyple nonetheless believe that an advertisement may be discriminatory Springsyple may at its own discretion either amend the advertisement or remove it from the Site 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
