The Terms of Use apply to candidates, recruiters, and advertisers, as applicable.

A. Advertiser Terms and Conditions
Before a person or organisation can place a position it is necessary to create an advertiser account with PhDposition.com (See http://www.PhDposition.com). In submitting an application to create an advertiser account, the applicant agrees to the following terms and conditions which apply to a person or entity placing advertisements with PhDposition.com from time to time (an “Advertiser”):

Position advertisements posted by the Advertiser on PhDposition.com are current for a period of 60 days, following which they will be automatically archived. No fees are charged to the Advertiser for posting a position advertisement on PhDposition.com. Position advertisements can be featured by the Advertiser for an additional fee. Unless otherwise specified, all rates are in euros and are exclusive of goods and services tax.

The Advertiser is responsible for proof reading and checking advertisements to be placed. If advertisements are incorrect following publication it is the Advertiser’s responsibility to correct the advertisement. No refunds will be given and invoices remain payable despite any such inaccuracy, error or omission on the Advertiser’s part.

The Advertiser acknowledges and agrees that PhDposition.com may re-format or edit an advertisement to comply with standard style or classification formats used by PhDposition.com from time to time.

The Advertiser warrants that the position advertisement submitted by the Advertiser for publication and the position advertisement as published (in either case, the “Advertisement”):

a. is in respect of a genuine position as described in the Advertisement and that this is the sole purpose of the Advertisement;

b. is not misleading or deceptive to potential candidates or other persons. In particular, the Advertiser warrants that the Advertisement and the Advertiser’s conduct in connection with the Advertisement is not liable to mislead persons seeking the employment as to the availability, nature, terms or conditions of, or any other matter relating to, the employment;

c. does not use discriminatory language or requirements;

d. will clearly state in the Advertisement if the Advertiser is relying upon an exemption under any applicable Anti-Discrimination Law in connection with the placement of such advertisement or recruiting for the position which is the subject of such Advertisement;

e. does not contain any material that could reasonably be considered to be defamatory or offensive;

f. does not infringe any intellectual property rights (including trademarks or copyright) of a third party.

PhDposition.com reserves the right to refuse to publish any Advertisement or to remove any Advertisement where it has been brought to PhDposition.com’s attention that there are reasonable grounds for suspecting that the Advertiser has breached any warranty contained in the Terms of Use. The Advertiser acknowledges, however, that PhDposition.com is not under any duty to vet the content of the Advertisement as submitted and that the Advertiser is solely responsible for such content.

The Advertiser warrants that it has obtained all requisite internal approvals that may be required in connection with the Advertisement and the position that is the subject of the Advertisement before submitting an Advertisement to PhDposition.com.

The Advertiser warrants that it will not in connection with an Advertisement (including, all responses received in relation to such Advertisement) use any information obtained from candidates or potential candidates for a purpose that is not genuinely connected to recruitment for the advertised position.

The Advertiser indemnifies PhDposition.com from any claim, loss or liability arising (whether directly or indirectly) in connection with the Advertisement or from breach of any warranty given by the Advertiser under the Terms of Use.

The Advertiser must take all reasonable care in guarding against unauthorised use of its user name and password. PhDposition.com is not responsible for any unauthorised access to Advertiser accounts through failure of the Advertiser to take such reasonable care.

The Advertiser acknowledges and agrees that by submitting an application to open an account with PhDposition.com the Advertiser (and where applicable, its directors, partners or principals) authorise PhDposition.com to request and obtain information on credit history from time to time from any credit reporting agency.

The Advertiser acknowledges that PhDposition.com does not independently verify information provided by candidates and that the Advertiser must rely on its own enquiries to check or otherwise verify information provided.

The Advertiser’s rights under each contract arising upon placement of an Advertisement (incorporating the Terms of Use) cannot be assigned without PhDposition.com’s consent. Any change in the effective control of the Advertiser will be deemed to be an assignment of each such contract requiring the written consent of PhDposition.com. PhDposition.com can assign any of its rights under the Terms of Use without reference to the Advertiser.

B. Candidate Terms and Conditions
Each person viewing or searching any of the advertised positions as a potential candidate or responding or applying for a position the subject of an Advertisement (a “Candidate”) agrees to the following terms and conditions:

The Candidate acknowledges that any Advertisement appearing on PhDposition.com is provided “as is” and has been created and/or authorised by the relevant Advertiser. PhDposition.com does not independently verify the accuracy of content of Advertisements or the bona fides of Advertisers. The Candidate is responsible for satisfying themselves as to such matters when contacting an Advertiser in response to an Advertisement. No fee or charge should be requested by any Advertiser to review or consider an application from the Candidate or to attend an interview. Such a request from any Advertiser may be indicative of a non-genuine purpose. If the Candidate has reason to suspect that a position advertised in an Advertisement is not genuine or that recruitment for the advertised position is not the sole purpose of the Advertisement, PhDposition.com would appreciate this feedback so that it can make inquiries and, where applicable, take appropriate action.

The Candidate must take reasonable care in protecting against unauthorised use of log-on details. PhDposition.com is not responsible for any unauthorised Candidate information through failure of the Candidate to take such reasonable care.

The Candidate warrants that in responding to any Advertisement or making inquiries of an Advertiser he or she does so as a genuine potential candidate in his or her own personal, non-commercial capacity.

The Candidate indemnifies and will keep PhDposition.com indemnified from any claim, loss or liability arising directly or indirectly from any curriculum vitae or resume or other information submitted by or on behalf of the Candidate to an Advertiser (including, without limitation, where such claim, loss or liability is caused by any misleading information, material omission, fraudulent or negligent misstatement).
