Important Notes & Terms of Agreement for Job Listing Advertisers
Here are the important notes and details of the commercial Agreement between us.
If we do a trial for you then this will last for the period we have told you. This period is normally 2 weeks. The purpose of a trial is for you to evaluate our service and to enable us to identify the likely volume of candidate click-thrus we can send to your specific type of job adverts.
You will need to provide us with a full feed of all your current job adverts. The feed needs to be in XML, RSS or CSV or other agreed format. If this cannot be provided then we will try to crawl the adverts directly on your site using our special robot crawler/spider. Some sites cannot be crawled because they require users to log-in to view adverts, have built in re-direct pages, session cookies, or are built to a non standard html format. If this is the case a feed will definitely be required from you. We can advise your technical team on this and how to set it up – it is usually fairly simple.
At the end of the trial we’ll contact you with a quotation proposal and to see if you wish to continue with our service. This quotation proposal will form the basis for charging.
2. Payment Charges
Our charging method will be:
A monthly charge based on a pay-per-click performance system.
In this case we agree a cost-per-click charge; a set a target number of click-thrus you wish to receive each month; and a maximum monthly budget spend cap.
At the end of the month we’ll charge you at the rate we’ve agreed for each click-thru to your job adverts, CV registration page and homepage.
If we can’t meet the target number of click-thrus in any calendar month we’ll only charge you for the click-thrus that we have sent you.
If we send you more than the target number of click-thrus in any calendar month we’ll only charge you the maximum monthly budget spend cap you have set.
For example: If we’d agreed 20p per click-thru; a target number of click-thrus of 10,000 per month; and you’ve set a maximum monthly budget spend cap of £2,000 then:
•If we send you 5,000 click-thrus we’ll only charge 5,000x20p = £1,000.
•If we send you 12,000 click-thrus we’ll only charge £2,000 - the maximum budget spend cap we have agreed.
Click-thrus are counted accurately and securely on our system. All known search engine crawler and false clicks are discounted. Our counting system has been third party audited by ABCe to JICWEB industry standards.
At the end of each month we make available full detail log of all the click-thrus we have sent to you and this is the basis of charges agreed between us.
Or, an alternative charging methods may be agreed such as: A fixed monthly charge; a monthly charge for displaying up to a certain number of job adverts; or some other acceptable charging method. If these methods are to be used they will be agreed between us in writing or by acceptance of our quotation and proposal.
3. Payment Terms
We will invoice you the month after we have provided you with our service.
All charges are subject to UK VAT.
Our payment credit terms are strictly 14 days from invoice date. We reserve the right to charge interest on overdue accounts at the rate of 3% above Bank of England Base rate.
4. Agreement – Termination and Variations
THERE IS NO LONG-TERM CONTRACT TIE-IN FOR USING OUR SERVICE. THE AGREEMENT BETWEEN US CONTINUES MONTH-BY-MONTH. IF YOU WISH TO TERMINATE THIS AGREEMENT YOU CAN DO SO AT ANY TIME.
As it is a monthly agreement though, we do reserve the right to bill you up to the end of the calendar month in which you terminate this agreement.
We shall confirm receipt of any termination notice received. And of course stop invoicing you.
IF YOU WISH TO TERMINATE THE AGREEMENT BETWEEN US OR VARY YOUR A MAXIMUM MONTHLY BUDGET SPEND CAP YOU MUST ADVISE US IN WRITING BY EMAIL, FAX OR LETTER POST. We will confirm receipt of any termination or variation change agreed to your maximum monthly budget spend cap by email. In the case of termination of the agreement we will stop invoicing you; or, in the case of variation to your maximum monthly spend cap we will vary future monthly invoices we send to you accordingly. This is important otherwise we will continue to invoice you because the Agreement between us will be deemed to be continuing unchanged.
We reserve the right to stop listing your adverts and terminate this agreement at any time, with or without notice or reason, and to invoice for any pro-rata payment charges that are due.
Should the number, or type, of vacancies on your site increase significantly we reserve the right to re-negotiate and agree new prices or price-band charge with you.
Quoted prices and price-band charges may change at any time for any reason. If we change our prices we will of course agree new charges with you prior to invoicing you.
5. Job Advert Feeds and Crawling
Your website vacancies must be acceptable and freely available to us by feed or by vacancy collection, indexing and display on our sites and partner sites.
Every effort is made to ensure adverts are collected, indexed, categorised and displayed correctly on 1Job and our partner sites, however we accept no responsibility for any errors or omissions that may occur or for any direct or consequential loss that may occur.
6. Broken Feeds and Changes to Your Site
If your website design changes, or the pages where jobs are located on your site change, or your job feed fails or is not kept up to date, then we will not be able to index your vacancies correctly. YOU MUST PLEASE ADVISE US IF YOUR SITE, OR THE JOB FEED YOU SUPPLY US WITH, IS TO CHANGE, IS BROKEN, OR HAS BEEN CHANGED. Failure to inform us will mean we send click-thrus to incorrect, broken, or void pages on your site and you would be charged for these click-thrus in the normal way.
