Terms and Conditions

1. Introduction

You accept that, by clicking “I accept ClearSource Personal Branding Terms & Conditions", you are agreeing to enter into a legally binding contract with ClearSource SPRL (“us”, “we”) for the full provision of the Services without any reserve. If you do not agree to this contract (“User Agreement”), do not click “I accept ClearSource Personal Branding Terms & Conditions ” and do not access or otherwise use our Services.

We reserve the right to unilaterally amend the present User Agreement from time to time.  If we make material changes to it, we will provide you notice through our Services, or by other means, to provide you the opportunity to review the changes before they become effective. If you object to any changes, you may close your account. Your continued use of our Services after we publish or send a notice about our changes to the User Agreement means that you are consenting to the updated terms.

2. The Services

Under the Personal Branding Services (the “Services”) we offer you the possibility to have a dedicated space on our website (www.clearsource.eu and its arborescence) (the “Website”) where relevant information about you and your professional skills is displayed to the general public in order to promote yourself and help you find working opportunities with potential employers which are clients of us. With the information that we display about you on our Website, third parties should normally not have enough information to contact you directly and will therefore always do so through us. If somehow a third party manages to contact you directly consequently to your information displayed on our Website, you specifically agree to discharge us from any kind of liability and to provide us with the identity of the third party who contacted you. As part of the Services, in order to maximize your chances of finding a working opportunity we will transfer your information to third parties via targeted emails, generic newsletter or any other means.

3. Service Availability

We may unilaterally modify wholly or partially or discontinue our Services at any time. We do not guarantee to store or keep showing any information and content that you have posted.

14. Relationship of the parties

In connection with this User Agreement, each party is an independent contractor and does not have any authority to bind or commit the other.

If a court of competent jurisdiction or arbitral panel finds any term or provision of this User Agreement to be invalid, illegal or otherwise unenforceable, such term or provision will not affect the other terms or provisions of this User Agreement or this User Agreement as a whole. Such term or provision will be deemed modified to the extent necessary, in the court’s opinion, to render such term or provision enforceable while preserving to the fullest extent permissible, the intent and agreements of the parties set forth in this User Agreement.

No waiver of any provision of this User Agreement will be effective unless it is in writing and signed by the party against which it is sought to be enforced. The delay or failure by either party to exercise or enforce any of its rights under this User Agreement is not a waiver of that party’s right to later enforce those rights, nor will any single or partial exercise of any such right preclude any other or further exercise of these rights or any other right.
