ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS
Welcome to CareerBeacon.com. The following terms of service (the "Terms of Service") govern your access and use of CareerBeacon™, CareerBeacon.com, and MyBeacon (collectively, including the services or features offered by any of the foregoing, "CareerBeacon"). CareerBeacon is provided by Alongside Inc. (“Company”).
Users who are Employers (defined below) can log in to our website located at careerbeacon.com (the "Website") to use our applicant tracking tools as well as tools to customize their recruitment requirements and skills recommendation engine to make searching for and selecting the right candidate easier. Users who are Job Seekers (defined below) can apply to jobs posted with our application platform and save their applications for future use. These services provided to Employers and Job Seekers through the platform shall be referred to as the “Services”.
If you are using the Website or Services, or otherwise entering into this Agreement, on behalf of a company or other legal entity (including your employer), you represent that you have the authority to bind the entity, and in such case the use of the word “you” in this Agreement will also include the entity. In the Agreement, the word “including” and its derivatives means “including without limitation”.
PROVISIONS SPECIFIC TO USERS THAT ARE EMPLOYERS
The provisions of this Section II of the Terms are specific to users that use the Services as employers, which includes direct employers, staffing agencies, and other companies using the Services (collectively, “Employers”).
How the Services Work. In consideration for the payment of the Fees, Alongside shall provide the Employer with the services as described on the Website that Employer has subscribed to, which allow the Employer to browse, screen, track and collaboratively manage its hiring process. These Services typically include the following key features:
- the ability add accounts for "Collaborators” (meaning the Employer’s employees and nominated representatives on their hiring team) by nominating such individuals to create individual user accounts which permit them to access the Services on behalf of the Employer;
- the ability to create "Job Listings", meaning descriptions of an employment or contractor role or position that the Employer is seeking to fill (note the ability of the Employer to do this may be limited to a set number of Job Listings in accordance with the corresponding Fees subscription selected by the Employer, as described on the Website);
- the ability to upload "Employer Information", meaning information about the Employer organization or any Job Listing;
- the ability to publish and export Job Listings to various job boards and social media services where they can be displayed to potential "Candidates", meaning persons seeking employment on a contract or permanent basis;
- access to view the "Profile" of a Candidate who applies for an Job Listing with the Employer, which means the information submitted by a Candidate through the Services which may include a summary of the Candidate’s academic background, work experience, technical or product skills and employment history; and
- a comparison tool to compare Candidates for a specific Job Listing, and the facilitation and management of communications between the Employer and its Collaborators, and any Candidate, with respect to an Job Listing.
Fees and Cancellations. The fees to access the Website and Services are as set out on the Website ("Fees"). Upon purchase of any subscription to the Services, you agree to pay the Fees presented to you at the time of your subscription order. Your subscription will become effective upon your receipt of a confirmation email for your subscription order.
Unless stated otherwise on the Website or agreed by Alongside in writing, the Fees shall be payable by the Employer monthly in advance, in the manner set out on the Website. Fees are non-refundable.
All Fees are exclusive of sales tax, VAT and all other taxes or duties (“Taxes”), and all taxes are payable by you in addition to the Fees listed on the Website. The Fees are not refundable in any circumstances.
The Fees may be increased by Alongside upon not less than thirty (30) days’ prior written notice to the Employer, which notice may be provided through the Website.
Alongside may require that Employers provide valid credit card information to use the Services in order for Alongside to process the applicable Fees.
Third-Party Fees. Alongside may offer Employers the option to purchase additional products and services that are supplied by third parties as set out on the Website. Use of such products by the Employer shall be governed by the relevant third party’s terms and conditions. The Employers shall comply with such third party’s terms and conditions for any such use.
No Endorsement or Verification. In no event shall Alongside be liable for any misrepresentations or actions of other users. It is the Employer's sole responsibility to verify whether the qualifications and expertise of any particular Job Seeker are accurate, including through asking questions or requesting certifications directly from the Job Seeker. Alongside only facilitates the engagement of Employers with Job Seekers. We do not endorse any of the Job Seekers using the Website, and we do not and cannot verify the factual content of any Job Seeker's resume or other information provided by Job Seekers nor do we carry out any background checks or pre-vetting of anyone who joins the Service, including Job Seekers. You therefore acknowledge and agree that if you elect to engage with any Job Seeker, such dealings are solely between you and the Job Seeker and Alongside shall not have any responsibility or liability for any losses or damages that you may incur as a result of any such dealings.
Job Seeker Information. You agree to keep all information, including any Personal Information, pertaining to a Job Seeker that you receive through the use of the Website or Services (including in a Job Application or resume) confidential and to use any such information only internally and only for the purpose of assessing the Job Seeker for a Job Listing. Without limiting your obligations under this section, you agree that you will be solely responsible for obtaining any necessary consents for any other use of Personal Information, or for any collection or disclosure of any Personal Information, and you agree that, at all times, you will only use Personal Information in compliance with all applicable laws, rules and regulations.
Compliance with Laws. You hereby agree, in using the Website or Services, to comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations, including complying with all applicable privacy laws and labour and employment laws when using the Website to recruit and engage the services of Job Seekers as well as during such Job Seeker’s employment with you (if any).
PROVISIONS SPECIFIC TO USERS THAT ARE JOB SEEKERS, PROSPECTIVE EMPLOYEES, OR EMPLOYEES
The provisions of this Section of the Agreement are specific to users that use the Services as job seekers, prospective employees or employees (collectively, “Job Seekers”).
Applying for a job. As a Job Seeker, you can use the Services to (i) apply for Job Listings that are listed by an Employer by submitting a job application through the platform (“Job Application”), or (ii) upload your resume to the Resume Database (as defined below). You may have the ability to choose how to submit your Job Application through the Services using the options offered through the Service.
Please note that once you have submitted a Job Application your resume and other Personal Information provided in your Job Application will be shared with the Employer that posted the Job Listing. You should therefore ensure that the information you provide is complete and accurate, and only contains information you are comfortable sharing with Employers.
If you submit a resume, you acknowledge that we may convert the resume into another format that enables searchable text for an Employer. The Employer will also be able to see your resume in the form in which you originally submitted it to Alongside.
Resume database. In addition to submitting Job Applications through the Service, Job Seekers can elect to include their resumes as part of the Service's resume database (the "Resume Database"). If you elect to do this, Employers who have access to the Resume Database will be able to access and view your resume and the contact information you provide on your resume. For purposes of this Agreement, references to "resume" shall also mean, a curriculum vitae and other similar written overviews of a person's experience and other qualifications that are uploaded to the Resume Database.
You can opt-out of including your resume in the Resume Database at any time by adjusting the settings in your Job Seeker account and we will remove your resume from the Resume Database as soon as reasonably practicable. However, if an Employer has already accessed your resume through the Resume Database and copied or saved your resume, that Employer will continue to have access to your resume and all information you included in your resume as it was included in the Resume Database.
Employer and Job Seeker Interaction. Alongside provides a platform to connect Employers with Job Seekers. We do not create jobs and do not exercise control over any of the Employers who post jobs on the Website. We do not guarantee that you will obtain any position of employment, either as an employee or a contractor, as a result of your use of the Website or Services. Any agreement or contract, whether written, oral or otherwise, made between a Job Seeker and an Employer is between the Job Seeker and that Employer, and Alongside is not a party to any such transaction.
Job Seekers are solely responsible for your interactions with Employers that they contact, or that contact them. Alongside reserves the right to take steps to verify Employers and Job Listings, Alongside does not routinely monitor Job Listings and Alongside is not responsible for determining or ensuring compliance with any local laws in connection with employment standards. We do not and cannot confirm that Employers or Job Seekers are who they claim to be, and assume no liability and expressly disclaim responsibility for the content, accuracy, completeness, legality, reliability of any Job Listing. We strongly encourage you to use common sense and good judgment before submitting an application for any Job Listing. For example, do not apply for any positions that require to you to pay to apply, pay for training or pay for training materials.
Please note that there are risks, including the risk of physical harm, that may arise when dealing with strangers, including persons who may be acting under false pretenses. You should therefore use caution with regard to the information you elect to share as part of your user profile or in a Job Application or resume that you provide through the Service. Only list the contact information that you are comfortable disclosing to Employers and other users of the Website or Service.
Although Alongside requests that Employers maintain the confidentiality of the Job Applications and resumes they receive through the Service, Alongside cannot and does not guarantee that the information, including Personal Information, provided to Employers through the Website or Services (including as part of a Job Application), onboarding process, employee or benefits management process, or via a resume, will be held in confidence or properly secured by each applicable Employer. In addition, Alongside takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for any Job Listing, onboarding or other employee-related documents, human resources information, or insurance information that any Employer posts, sends or provides via the Service. You agree that Alongside is not responsible or liable for the conduct of any Employer.
