The following sets forth the general terms and conditions (also referred to as the “terms” or the “agreement”) between CVBOX (or “CVBOX”, also referred to as “we”, “us” and “our” throughout these terms) and potential candidates (also referred to as “applicants” or “profiles”) and potential (digital) employers (also referred to as “partnering companies”) as well as visitors (individuals not yet registered) on the website (or “platform”) of CVBOX. Collectively, potential candidates, potential employers and visitors are referred to as “users” of our Website, an individual of these three groups is referred to as a “user”. In these terms users may be addressed as “you” (also referred to as “your”). These terms and conditions apply whenever users access the website. By accessing our website or using our services, you accept these terms and conditions and are bound by them (both on behalf of yourself and the entity that you represent). You may not access and/or use our services under the age of 18. If you do not agree with all terms and provisions in this agreement, you are not permitted to access our services and/or use our website.
CVBOX is a platform that has the goal to connect potential candidates with potential (digital) employers. Candidates can register on our platform using their information and data, and thus provide information regarding their preferences, skills and experience. CVBOX does not do any user-related background checks and does not vouch for the truthfulness of any of their statements. You agree that CVBOX is not liable for the acts (or lack thereof) of its users. CVBOX’ s staff may at their own discretion amend or adjust the information and (within the platform) promote a candidate with a promising profile. The given profiles can be reviewed by partnering companies, companies which have entered into a business relationship with CVBOX. CVBOX reserves the right to refuse service to certain companies/individuals/competitors at its own discretion. If a partnering company shows interest, CVBOX can connect both parties. Partnering companies can also directly contact candidates. Any interaction between the parties/users on our platform is solely their responsibility. The users agree that CVBOX is not liable for any liability arising out of these interactions. That said, all users must agree to interact within the bounds of common decency when using this platform. CVBOX reserves the right to temporarily suspend services to undertake maintenance activities, and does not guarantee uninterrupted availability, reachability or faultlessness of the platform/services. CVBOX welcomes all feedback regarding the platform. If you submit any ideas, suggestions, documents, and/or proposals to us about how to improve our website and/or services, including through any suggestion, email, feedback or forum pages (“Feedback”) you agree that we have an irrevocable and perpetual right to do anything we want with your Feedback, including implementing it in our products and services and that we will not owe you any compensation for it under any circumstances. However, we reserve the right to compensate you at our sole discretion.
Confidentiality and restricted use of candidate information
The use of the provided candidate information/CVs is restricted to this agreement. No part of the provided information may be reproduced or transmitted in any form or by any means – electronic, photocopying or otherwise – without prior written permission of CVBOX. Partnering companies may use the information only for the internally intended application process and only for a reasonable duration – solely within the specific legal entity with which CVBOX cooperates. The same restrictions also apply towards the handling of affiliated companies/partners: without prior explicit and written consent of CVBOX, no information may be provided to any affiliated companies or partners. One specific login/account of a partnering company can only be used by the assigned person within that legal entity. Any form of violation will be strictly penalized.
Links to Third Party Websites
On the website of CVBOX you may encounter third-party websites/services. CVBOX may not be affiliated with these websites, and therefore has no control over content, the terms and conditions or privacy policies of these third-party websites/services. When accessing these websites/services, you do so at your own risk. We assume no responsibility for the content of such websites/services and disclaim liability (direct or indirect) for any and all forms of loss or damage arising out of the use of them.
You just need working internet access, an email address and, as a candidate, your most recent CV as a PDF or DOC/DOCX file.
Entering Information on our Website
CVBOX is not obliged to verify any data and information entered on the website. If we yet see false information in your profile, we will immediately send you a request to correct these entries. If these entries are still not corrected after the request, we will delete your profile. The creation of multiple profiles by a single candidate is not permitted. You agree to refrain from uploading invalid data, viruses, worms or other software agents through the service/platform.
Recency of profile Please keep your profile up-to-date. An up-to-date profile helps us ensure that you receive relevant offers. CVBOX reserves the right to contact you via email on (important) changes to our services, or to notify you if an action on your part could be of benefit to you (e.g. suggested updates, amendments to your profile, or a reminder to update your profile).
You have the option of subscribing to our newsletter, to which you can unsubscribe at any time (unsubscription link will also be included in the newsletter).
If you are a partnering company, you authorize CVBOX to use your information, including your logo and name, as a reference on our platform and to third parties for the duration of the agreement. The partnering company has the right to revoke its authorization at any time by sending us a revocation in written form (letter, or email to support@CVBOX.com.ng).
Some functions of the website require a password.
For candidates: If you forgot or lost your password, please contact us through the Forgot password Link on the homepage of the website. You will then receive instructions on how to reset your password via your Login email.
For partnering companies: If you forgot your password, you can also contact us through the Forgot password Link on the homepage of the website. You must keep your password confidential. CVBOX shall not be liable to any damages arising due to loss of your password. If you lost your password to your account or notice that an unauthorized individual uses your account, notify CVBOX immediately. We will then provide you with new reset instructions. If we identify misuse of the password (e.g. intentionally giving the password to another individual), we reserve the right to suspend services/access to our website.
Deleting your profile as a Candidate
CVBOX provides the possibility to deactivate your account. By deactivating your account, potential employers will no longer be able to find you. To request a deactivation, send an email to support@CVBOX.com requesting deactivation. A deactivated account can be reactivated at a later time, again with a request in email form.
You can also request the deletion of your profile by sending an email to support@CVBOX.com indicating your request. With the deletion, all your saved personal information will be removed entirely. A reactivation is not possible in this case.
You will then need to create a new profile in case you want to reuse the service. Deactivation/reactivation or deletion may take 1-3 working days (without guarantee for this time period, but we will do our best).
Cancellation, Renewal and Payment for Partnering Companies
“Paid Contracts” with subscriptions (i.e. usually individually agreed contracts with premium functions/features, as opposed to “Free/Trial” Access) are concluded for a given time-period specified in the individual order. The payment or the invoice amount for the subscription term is payable upon contract conclusion, i.e. payable in advance. In case of individual manual invoicing, the invoice amount is to be paid within seven (7) days; the access/functions will only be granted upon receipt of payment. At CVBOX’s sole discretion, access may also be granted earlier than after receipt of payment. After each subscription term, the contract renews itself automatically according to the term agreed upon (e.g. 3, 6 or 12 months), unless the partnering company cancels the service one (1) week (“notice period”) before the current term runs out (unless the notice period is agreed individually – in which case the individual agreement prevails over this agreement). The full invoice amount of each renewal term will be charged around one (1) week prior to the begin of the renewal term – if not agreed otherwise in the individual offer. Paid Contracts with a subscription term can be terminated by the partnering company by email to support@CVBOX.com.ng (please keep in mind the notice period). Termination will be confirmed in an email sent by CVBOX. All access possibilities to CVBOX will then be terminated. The partnering company is not entitled to any refund of usage fees. The right of termination due to cause remains intact. CVBOX has the right to cancel Paid Contracts at any time without giving reasons with the termination taking effect at the end of the respective term. “Free/Trial” Access/functions (“unpaid contracts”): Unpaid Contracts may be terminated at any time – without giving reasons – at CVBOX’s sole discretion, without a notice period. CVBOX will not have any liability whatsoever to you for any termination of this agreement, including for termination of your CVBOX Account or deletion of your Content.
