Terms and Conditions
1. Scope of application
The Seasonary GmbH, Schäferstraße 44, 01067 Dresden, Germany - hereinafter referred to as Seasonary - operates the job portal Seasonary via its website seasonary.com. These terms and onditions apply to all contracts between the advertising employers or clients - hereinafter referred to as AG -, employees - hereinafter referred to as AN - and Seasonary.
2. Basics of cooperation
By registering, AN and AG accept Seasonary's terms of business and use.
The AG grants Seasonary a worldwide, non-exclusive, gratuitous, transferable licence - with the right to sublicense - and a right of use, unlimited in time, to the posted offers, text and image materials for the purpose of presentation on the job portal seasonary.com and all associated distribution channels (including social media).
By placing the order, the AG confirm that they hold all the necessary rights of use to the image materials and data they have placed and that they can dispose of them freely. If protected rights of the advertiser (trademark rights and copyrights) are used in the publication of the advertisement, the advertiser shall grant permission to use these rights when placing the order. In particular, they undertake not to infringe applicable trademark, labelling, copyright and competition law or the personal rights of third parties when creating or transmitting their own content to be published.
Seasonary is entitled - even without consultation with the AG - to incorporate sent or approved text and image materials for the purpose of fitting them into the job portal.
The AG shall ensure and declare that they are the owners of the copyrights or rights of use and that the rights of third parties do not conflict with the exploitation. Any necessary consents have to be obtained by the AG independently. As far as claims of third parties nevertheless exist, the AG indemnify Seasonary from these claims and will compensate Seasonary for all resulting damages. Seasonary is not obliged to check whether the advertisement infringes or impairs the rights of third parties.
The AG are fully responsible for the accuracy, completeness and updating of their offers themselves. In particular, they must ensure that they have the right to use the content used in the offers, such as photos, company-specific data and contact information.
The requirements of the General Equal Treatment Act must be complied with by the AG.
The AG may only post offers that are compatible with the purpose of the job portal; in particular, they must be directed towards the establishment of employment or training relationships and clearly specify the position to be filled. In particular, the following offers may not be posted on the Seasonary job portal:
- Offers that violate applicable law, morality or human dignity or official prohibitions or infringe the rights of third parties, e.g. Minimum Wage Act, Occupational Health and Safety Act, Working Hours Act, General Equal Treatment Act and Copyright Act.
- Offers of jobs in the erotic or prostitution industry.
- Offers that serve, in whole or in part, purely advertising or business purposes or the promotion of products or services.
- Chargeable offers of any kind, unless the charge is regulated by law.
- Offers that contain incorrect, inaccurate or misleading facts and/or mislead about the identity of the provider.
- Offers that only serve to gain business or distribution partners or to operate so-called pyramid schemes
- Advertising for club or association memberships,
- Advertising for participation in illegal structural distributions (§16 UWG).
Insofar as Seasonary has received the email address of the client in connection with the registration, Seasonary is entitled to send the client information and further commercial communication regarding the ordered and similar services of Seasonary by email or push notification even after the expiry of the contract. The AG can object to this at any time informally and free of charge by e-mail to Seasonary with effect for the future.
3. Advertisement order
The basis for the publication of job advertisements on seasonary.com is a binding advertisement order confirmed online by the AG. The contract with the AG comes into effect either through the creation of an employer account and the associated intention to purchase or through the publication of the advertisements requested by the AG. The conclusion of the contract is not connected with any transfer of ownership, rights of use or other rights or licences to Seasonary's software. The publication of a job advertisement is only guaranteed by Seasonary if the AG provides all necessary information and company picture material in the respective required file formats.
Advertisements can be booked once with various fixed terms or as a subscription.
In the case of one-time creation, advertisements are published for a fixed term. The running time is to be selected from the offers valid at the time of the contract. The publication ends automatically with the expiry of the last day of the agreed term without any action on the part of the advertiser being required. The term can also be paused as often as desired (on a daily basis). However, the term is limited to 2 years after initial publication. If unused advertising days remain after 2 years, they shall expire without compensation.
In the case of a subscription, advertisements are published permanently in accordance with the offer selected at the time of the contract. Subscriptions do not have a minimum term. The subscription can be cancelled at any time without notice to the end of the contract month. Cancellation can be declared to Seasonary via a web form or in writing. If no notice of cancellation is given, the subscription will be automatically renewed for a further 30 days without the need for an express declaration.
The AG is entitled to change, deactivate or delete a published offer in the respective AG profile at any time and without giving reasons. Paragraph 2.8. shall apply accordingly. In the event of an amendment, the amended published offer shall continue to run for the remaining term of the original offer. In case of deletion, the advertisement will be permanently removed. The AG account remains unchanged.
Advertised job offers which are obviously no longer up to date or contain outdated information can be made inactive or removed by Seasonary without prior notification of the AG. The payment obligation of the AG continues to exist without restriction.
The AG has the right to log out of the job portal at any time without notice. This can be done directly in the user account and does not require the intervention of Seasonary.
Seasonary will retain the data and stored information of the AG for 30 days after the deletion has been carried out in the event of a desired reactivation of the account.
30 days after the completed deletion of the account, the profile data will be irrevocably removed and can no longer be retrieved.
All rights to the software used, to marks, titles, brands as well as copyrights and other commercial rights of Seasonary remain with Seasonary without restriction. The copyright to the job portal is held in its entirety by Seasonary or its legal successors.
The use of the job portal is free of charge for AN. For AG, the use of the job portal including their permanent company presentation is free of charge, but the placement and publication of job advertisements is subject to a fee.
