1. Introduction 1.1 Contract You agree that by clicking “Join Now”, “Join Sharedpro”, “Sign Up” or similar, registering, accessing or using our services (described below), you are agreeing to enter into a legally binding contract with Sharedpro (even if you are using our Services on behalf of a company). If you do not agree to this contract (“Contract” or “User Agreement”), do not click “Join Now” (or similar) and do not access or otherwise use any of our Services. If you wish to terminate this contract, at any time you can do so by closing your account and no longer accessing or using our Services. Services This Contract applies to Sharedpro.in and Sharedpro-branded apps. Registered users of our Services are “Members” and unregistered users are “Visitors”. This Contract applies to both Members and Visitors. As a Visitor or Member of our Services, the collection, use and sharing of your personal data is subject to this Privacy Policy (which includes our Cookie Policy and other documents referenced in this Privacy Policy) and updates. 1.2 Members and Visitors When you register and join the Sharedpro Service, you become a Member. If you have chosen not to register for our Services, you may access certain features as a “Visitor.” 1.2 Members There are mainly two types of members who register and join the platform of Sharedpro. Employers Employing company: Companies who’ve listed their employees for sharing on Sharedpro. Hiring company: Companies who’ve posted a job and are hiring an employee on Sharedpro. Professionals Shared employees: Employees listed for sharing on Sharedpro, they always have an employing company handling their payroll. Job seekers: Candidates without any employing company registered on Sharedpro. 1.3 Change We may modify this Contract, our Privacy Policy and our Cookies Policies 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. We agree that changes cannot be retroactive. 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 these terms means that you are consenting to the updated terms. 2. Obligations 2.1 Service Eligibility The Services are not for use by anyone under the age of 16. To use the Services, you agree that: (1) you must be the “Minimum Age” (described below) or older; (2) you will only have one Sharedpro account, which must be in your real name; and (3) you are not already restricted by Sharedpro from using the Services. Creating an account with false information is a violation of our terms, including accounts registered on behalf of others or persons under the age of 16. “Minimum Age” means 16 years old. However, if the law requires that you must be older in order for Sharedpro to lawfully provide the Services to you without parental consent (including using of your personal data) then the Minimum Age is such older age. 2.2 Your Account Members are account holders. You agree to (1) try to choose a strong and secure password; (2) keep your password secure and confidential and (3) not transfer any part of your account (e.g., connections) You are responsible for anything that happens through your account unless you close it or report misuse. As between you and others (including your employer), your account belongs to you. However, if the Services were purchased by another party for you to use, the party paying for such Service has the right to control access to and get reports on your use of such paid Service; however, they do not have rights to your personal account. 2.3 Payment If you buy any of our paid Services, you agree to pay us the applicable fees and taxes and to additional terms specific to the paid Services. Failure to pay these fees will result in the termination of your paid Services with penal. Also, you agree that: We may store and continue billing your payment method (e.g. credit card) even after it has expired, to avoid interruptions in your Services and to use to pay other Services you may buy. For hiring employers, any kind of payment to the shared employee like salary, allowance or other expenses if any should only be paid to the employing company (to ensure a unified single salary payment to the employee). The hiring employer should refrain itself from any direct transaction to the employee. The hiring employer should pay for its part of the compensation of the shared employee within the first 10 days of every next month. If for any reasons the hiring employer fails to pay within the stipulated time then the employer should convey the same to the employing company or Sharedpro. All of your purchases of Services are subject to Sharedpro’s refund policy. We may calculate taxes payable by you based on the billing information that you provide us at the time of purchase. 2.4 Deferred hiring The payment would be due and payable if a candidate referred by Sharedpro is offered employment by the hiring company within 6 months of such referral and joins the hiring company. If the same candidate is received through another source after the expiry of 6 months period and is selected and joins the hiring company, then the credit will go to the other source. 2.5 No Poaching Hiring companies cannot contact the employees listed on Sharedpro for any other purpose other than the service offered by the employing company. If the employing company has listed its employees for sharing on a fixed predefined tenure, then the hiring company cannot contact and/or offer the employees any permanent roles in either their company or any other company without a written consent of the employing company. Hiring an employee listed for sharing either directly or indirectly for a permanent position without any consent of the employing company may fall within the purview of Section 3 of the Competition Act and hence it is strictly prohibited. 2.6 Notices and Messages You agree that we will provide notices and messages to you in the following ways: (1) within the Service, or (2) sent to the contact information you provided us (e.g., email, mobile number, physical address). You agree to keep your contact information up to date. 2.7 Sharing Our Services allow sharing of information in many ways, such as your profile, links to news articles, job postings, and blogs. Information and content that you share or post may be seen by other Members, Visitors or others. Wherever we have made settings available, we will honor the choices you make about who can see content or information (e.g., sharing content only to Sharedpro connections, restricting your profile visibility from search engines, or opting not to notify others of your Sharedpro profile update). For job searching activities, we default to not notifying your connections network or the public. So if you apply for a job through our Service or opt to signal that you are interested in a job, our default is to share it only with the job poster. We are not obligated to publish any information or content on our Service and can remove it in our sole discretion, with or without notice. 3. Rights and Limits 3.1.
