Terms & Conditions

USER TERMS AND CONDITIONS

1. GENERALLY REGARDING THE SERVICE AND APPROVAL OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS                              

1.1 MindDig AB, company registration no. 559339-4249, (“MindDig”) has developed an online platform for employers and individuals seeking employment in the Swedish Arctics (the “Service”). Anyone who uses the Service (the “User”) may browse between employment advertisements and the alike posted by employers, information about living and working in the Swedish Arctics and such other related content (the “Service Content”) and also publicly post resumes and/or create individual talent profiles on their own (“User Data”). The Service is provided free-of-charge to the User.

1.2 These terms and conditions (the “User Terms and Conditions”) are applicable to the use of the Service. The User should read through these User Terms and Conditions prior to commencing use of the Service. By using the Service, the User confirms that he or she has read, understood and accepted these User Terms and Conditions which will thereby become a binding agreement between MindDig and the User (the “Agreement”).

1.3 The Service is not available to children under 18 years of age. By entering into this Agreement and using the Service, you are providing an affirmation that you are 18 years of age or older.

2. USE OF THE SERVICE  

2.1 Provided that the User fully complies with the provisions of the User Terms and Conditions and unless otherwise stated in the User Terms and Conditions, MindDig grants the User a non-exclusive, non-transferable, limited right to use the Service for the User’s own purposes. For the sake of clarity, it is noted that the User is not entitled to use the Service for commercial purposes.

2.2 In the absence of MindDig’s prior written consent, the User shall not be entitled to assign, transfer or sub-license its rights pursuant to this Agreement to a third party.

2.3 The Service is generally provided 24 hours per day, seven days a week, 365 days per year. However, MindDig does not warrant that the Service shall be free of defects or outages during the aforementioned period and provides no warranties regarding the functions, security or availability of the Service. Use of the Service requires an internet connection and the User’s access to such connection is beyond MindDig’s control.                                              

2.4 The Service is reached via the User’s electronic device by connection to the internet either via Wi-Fi connection or internet connection through a connection to a telecommunications operator (the “Equipment”). The User is responsible for such Equipment and must acquire the same at his or her own expense. The User is aware and acknowledges that upgrades and/or modifications of the Service may entail changes to the technical requirements for the User’s Equipment. This is intended to ensure that the User can use the improvements resulting from an upgrade and/or modification.

3. USERNAME AND PASSWORD

3.1 The User shall provide a username and password when he or she logs on to the Service (the “User Account”). The User shall choose the username and password. In creating the User Account, the User must provide correct and complete User information as requested by the Service (the “User Information”). Such User Information must describe the User themselves and not any other individual person.

3.2 MindDig cannot verify whether it is the User who is using the Service but, rather, only whether the correct username and password have been provided. Accordingly, the User undertakes not to disclose or in any other manner make available his or her username or password to any unauthorised third party and to ensure that unauthorised third parties cannot obtain access to usernames or passwords in any other manner. In the event the password is nonetheless used by someone other than the User,  MindDig may block the User’s use of the Service.    

3.3 Where there is reason to assume that a username and/or password has been misused, the User shall immediately notify MindDig thereof. The report shall contain information regarding the User Account and information regarding the period of time the User suspected that the username and/or password was misappropriated by unauthorised third parties. The User shall be responsible for all losses incurred by MindDig as a consequence of the fact that the username or password has been obtained by an unauthorised third party. Such liability shall apply until such time as the User has blocked the relevant User Account.

4. THE USER’S OBLIGATIONS              

4.1 The User undertakes:  

(a) in conjunction with the use of the Service, to comply with (i) the provisions of the User Terms and Conditions, (ii) applicable laws, ordinances and decisions by governmental authorities, and (iii) instructions provided by MindDig from time to time regarding the use of the Service; 
(b) when posting User Data to the Service, to ensure that the User owns or has obtained the necessary rights to such data;
(c) to not sell or modify the Service Content or reproduce, display, publicly perform, distribute, or otherwise use the Service Content in any way for any public or commercial purpose or that otherwise infringes MindDig's or its licensor’s intellectual property rights. 
(d) in using the Service, not to transfer any material to the Service which may contain viruses, Trojan horses or any other code (so-called “malware”) which may damage, disable, overload or impair the Service or encroach on the use of the Service by Another User. “Another User” means another user who, by virtue of an agreement with MindDig, uses the Service in a manner comparable to that of the User;           
(e) not to take measures the purpose of which is to circumvent MindDig’s security systems – e.g. by using Another User’s username and password or providing usernames and passwords to a third party – or attempt to test the security of the Service without obtaining MindDig’s prior written consent therefor;                              
(f) not to decompile (reverse engineer) the Service;                 
(g) not to take measures the purpose of which is to afford the User unauthorised access to any computer system or network covered by the Service; and                        
(h) not to acquire or attempt to acquire material or information which was not intentionally made available or provided via the Service.                                              

4.2 Legal action may be taken by MindDig in response to breaches or attempted breaches of one, several or all the provisions of section 4.1.

5. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS

5.1 All intellectual property rights, whether or not registered, and technical solutions regarding the Service, the arrangement and design of the Service, and the Service Content are the property of MindDig or the property of a third party with whom MindDig collaborates and may not be used by the User other than as required for use of the Service in accordance with this Agreement.

MindDig shall be entitled, following notice to the User, to erase the contents which are suspected of infringing third-party intellectual property rights.

5.4 The parties agree that MindDig obtains a non-exclusive, global, transferable, royalty-free licence to use User Data to the extent necessary for MindDig to be able to provide the Service functions.                                                            

5.5 Notwithstanding anything contrary to what is stated in this Agreement, MindDig has the right to, during the term of the Agreement and thereafter, freely use User Data in Anonymized Form. “Anonymized Form” means that the User Data does not contain any information as is subject to section 10 below. The parties agree that the User shall not be entitled to any compensation for such use of User Data.

5.6 The User undertakes to compensate MindDig for any payments and damages which MindDig, by virtue of settlement or judgment, is ordered to pay for infringement of intellectual property rights for which the User is liable.

6.1 The User acknowledges and agrees that the Service Content, including but not limited to, job opportunities are not under MindDig’s supervision and control in any aspect. The job opportunities posted on the Service are the sole responsibility of the employer company posting such Service Content and the User agrees that MindDig shall not be held responsible for the Service Content provided from such employer company. No information, whether oral or written, obtained by a User from MindDig or from the usage of the Service shall create any warranty not expressly stated herein.
