Terms and conditions of business for recruiters

General

In these terms and conditions:

Commencement of Services

The commencement of Services will start immediately after the Client has purchased Services online via the NurseryJobs.co.uk website and/or until the Order Confirmation has been returned to us. We will acknowledge receipt by sending a confirmatory email or fax to the Client.

Prices

Prices are guaranteed for the period stated on the NurseryJobs.co.uk website and/or on the Order Confirmation.

A job posted on NurseryJobs.co.uk will remain live for 28 days or such shorter time as we agree with the Client. Any extension of this time will be charged to the Client as a new posting. Any jobs posted in addition to the agreed number of jobs per month will be charged at a price per job agreed with the Client at the time of the contract negotiation. A single job is identified by its unique ID number. If a Client deletes a job and then either reposts it or posts another, this will be classed as two jobs.

If any Services to be used within any time period specified on the NurseryJobs.co.uk website and/or on the Order Confirmation are not used within that period of time they may not be carried over into any subsequent period without our prior written consent. The Client will be responsible for payment for any unused Services.

We can change the price of any Services at any time.

Payments

You will either make a one off payment or be invoiced at monthly intervals for use of the Services. If your account is suspended any material you have posted on the NurseryJobs.co.uk website will be disabled.

All prices are in pounds sterling and exclude VAT. You agree that payments will be made by credit/debit card, cheque or bank transfer. All invoices are payable within 14 days. Late payment will entitle us to suspend provision of Services. In the event of late payment, without prejudice to any other remedy, we reserve the right to charge interest at the rate of 2.5% above Barclays Bank Plc's base rate from time to time. In addition, the Client shall be liable for any collection or enforcement costs of collection in the event of late payment. We may assign to a third party the right to collect and receive payment.

We reserve the right to refuse to extend any credit to the Client and to require prepayment from the Client before providing any Services. We may set off any amount received by us from the Client against any amount which is due and payable under this Agreement.

Online payment services will be carried out by RBS WorldPay.

Termination

Once an Order Confirmation has been received, we cannot accept any cancellation of the agreed Services and no refunds will be given. Subscription Services are for a minimum term of 3 months unless otherwise agreed with us. No refunds will be given for early termination. For Services purchased online, refunds may occasionally be given at our sole and absolute discretion.

Without prejudice to any other remedy, we may terminate the Client's account and any or all contracts and Services with immediate effect in the event of material or persistent breach of these terms and conditions by the Client or if we have reasonable grounds to believe that the Client cannot or will not pay its debts.

We reserve the right in our sole and absolute discretion to close any account at any time without reason. Examples of accounts that may be closed include, but are not limited to:

a. those of Clients who have not provided full or accurate contact or company information

b. those of Clients that we consider to be acting inappropriately or illegally

c. those of Clients that use the NurseryJobs.co.uk website to advertise websites, services, businesses and/or business opportunities in any part of the job vacancy or on any part of the site

d. those of Clients who fail our credit checking process, or who default on payment.

In such an event, we will be entitled to accelerate all amounts due hereunder and to collect all costs and legal expenses incurred. The terms of this agreement which are necessary for its enforcement shall survive any expiration or termination of this agreement. Upon any termination or expiration of this agreement, all licenses and rights granted to either party hereunder by the other party shall immediately terminate as will all access granted by us to the Client in relation to our websites.

Limitation of liability

In the event that the Client makes a claim against us for whatever reason, our liability (if any) shall not exceed the price paid by the Client for the Services. Under no circumstances shall we be liable for any consequential, indirect or special losses, including without limitation, loss of profits, revenue, interest, goodwill, business and/or savings. Nothing in these terms and conditions shall be construed to exclude us liable for death or personal injury by negligence or any other liability which cannot by law be excluded.

If any clause or part of a clause is held to be invalid or unenforceable, this will not affect the validity or enforceability of the remaining clauses or parts.
