Terms of Use Agreement

 

1. Contract

 

General 

You agree to enter into a legally binding contract with chainstaff (also when accessing our services on behalf of a company) by clicking on "Sign Up Now", "Become a chainstaff Member", "Register", or by accessing or using our services (as described below). If you wish to terminate this contract, you may do so at any time by closing your account and ceasing access to and use of our services.

 

Services

This contract applies to chainstaff.info, chainstaff apps, and other chainstaff-related websites, apps, information, and services that state they are offered under this contract ("Services"), including offsite data collection for such services, such as our advertisements, as well as the "promote with chainstaff" and "share via chainstaff" plugins. Registered users of our services are "Members", while unregistered users are "Visitors".

 

chainstaff

You are entering this contract with chainstaff (referred to as "we" or "us").

As a Visitor or Member of our Services, the collection, use, and sharing of your personal data are subject to this Privacy Policy (and other documents referenced in this Privacy Policy) and its updates.

 

Modification

We reserve the right to modify this contract, our privacy policy, and our cookie policy. Should we make significant changes, we will notify you through our services or in another manner, giving you the opportunity to review the changes before they become effective. We agree that changes cannot be made retroactively. If you disagree with any changes, you may close your account. Your continued use of our services after we publish or notify you of these changes means that you agree to the updated terms as of their effective date.

 

2.Duties

Access to the Services

The services are not intended for use by minors under the age of 16. To use the services, you must confirm that:

1. You have reached the "Minimum Age" (as defined below) required for use.

2. You maintain only one chainstaff account, which you have created using your real name.

3. You have not been previously banned from using the services by chainstaff.

The "Minimum Age" is 16 years. However, if the law requires that you must be older for chainstaff to lawfully provide the services to you (including the collection of your data) without parental consent, then the "Minimum Age" refers to that higher age.

 

Your Account

Members are account owners. You agree to:

(1) Choose a secure password, keep it secret, and treat it confidentially;

(2) Not transfer any part of your account (e.g., contacts); and

(3) Comply with the laws, the chainstaff Code of Conduct (what you can and cannot do on chainstaff), and the Community Guidelines.

You are responsible for anything done through your user account unless you close it or report misuse.

 

Payment

When you purchase our paid services (e.g., prize money/bounty for job recommendations), you agree to pay the applicable fees and taxes to us. Furthermore, you agree that:

Your purchase may be subject to processing fees due to exchange rates.

We may store and charge your payment method (e.g., credit card), even after it has expired, to avoid interruptions in our services and to use it for payment of other services you may purchase.

chainstaff reserves the right to adjust payment terms as appropriate.

According to the business model, chainstaff receives a commission of 30% from the corresponding prize money/bounty. At the time of the successful employment of the candidate through chainstaff (the moment the listing is successfully closed), the payment of the bounty is due. The bounty is then paid out and distributed over six installments by chainstaff:

  • 1/6 upon contract conclusion (closing of the position through chainstaff)

  • 1/6 at the start of employment (according to the employment contract)

  • 1/6 at the beginning of the 2nd month of employment

  • 1/6 at the beginning of the 3rd month of employment

  • 1/6 at the beginning of the 4th month of employment

  • 1/6 at the beginning of the 5th month of employment

We calculate the taxes you need to pay based on the billing information you provide us at the time of purchase. A copy of your invoice can be obtained through your account settings on chainstaff.

 

Refund Policy

chainstaff offers companies a classic pro-rata refund policy. If the candidate does not take up the position, or if the employer or candidate resigns within the first 5 months, the respective outstanding amount (rounded to months) will be credited to the company's chainstaff account. If the company has transferred the outstanding amount to a bank account, then processing fees are at the company's expense.

 

Fraud Prevention

To prevent fraud, chainstaff reserves the right to withhold the first installment for hired candidates/mediators until the candidate has actually started the job. If the candidate does not start the job, chainstaff reserves the right to withhold the first installment. This measure ensures the integrity of the referral process and that all parties fulfill their contractual obligations.

 

Notices and Messages

You agree that we may send you notices and messages in the following ways:

  1. within the service, or

  2. to the contact information you provided (e.g., email address, mobile number, mailing address).

You agree to keep your contact information up to date. Please review your settings to control and limit the messages you receive from us.

 

Sharing

Our services allow you to share messages and information (especially job ads) across various internet mediums. Information and content that you share or post can be seen by other members, visitors, or third parties (even outside of the chainstaff services). You decide in which medium you want to share information.

Under these terms, members may not actively approach employees and contact them personally unless they hold a corresponding intermediary license. It is prohibited for chainstaff members to maintain lists of candidates, proactively approach them, and encourage them to apply as part of active recruitment activities unless they hold an intermediary license.

If a member publishes a job ad for their own business, where they are also under contract as an employee, this policy does not apply. In such cases, the member is allowed to share information and content within these services and actively approach employees without violating the restrictions set forth in this agreement. However, we reserve the right to conduct additional checks or take measures in such situations to ensure that the posting of the job ad and recruitment activities comply with applicable laws and regulations.

On the other hand, applicants can use our services for job applications, where information and data may only be shared with the job advertiser.

We are not obligated to publish information or content on our service and can remove it with or without prior notice.

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, CHAINSTAFF AND ITS AFFILIATES DISCLAIM ANY IMPLIED OR STATUTORY WARRANTY, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF TITLE, ACCURACY OF DATA, NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY, OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

To the extent legally permissible, for all disputes arising out of or in connection with the use of the platform or its services, Köniz, Canton of Bern, is agreed upon as the exclusive jurisdiction. This particularly applies to disputes regarding the validity, interpretation, fulfillment, or non-fulfillment of the terms of use or any other agreements between the platform and the members.

The platform is aimed at users worldwide. Users who access the platform from outside Switzerland do so on their initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws, insofar as and to the extent local laws are applicable.

If any provision of these General Terms and Conditions is or becomes invalid in whole or in part, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions. The wholly or partly invalid regulations should be replaced by regulations whose economic success comes closest to that which the contracting parties intended with the invalid or partially invalid regulation.

If a court with jurisdiction over this contract finds any part of it unenforceable, you and we agree that the court should modify the terms to make that part enforceable while still achieving its intent. If the court cannot do that, you and we agree to ask the court to remove that unenforceable part and still enforce the rest of this contract.

This contract (including any additional terms we provide when you engage with a feature of the services) is the only agreement between us regarding the services and supersedes all prior agreements for the services.

If we don't act to enforce a breach of this contract, that does not mean that chainstaff has waived its right to enforce this contract. You may not assign or transfer this contract (or your membership or use of Services) without our consent. However, you agree that chainstaff can assign this contract to its affiliates or a party that buys it without your consent. There are no third-party beneficiaries to this contract.

General Data Processing

 

1. Scope of Processing Personal Data

We only process personal data of our users as necessary to provide a functioning service and to deliver the services we offer. The processing of personal data of our users generally occurs only with the user's consent or based on other legal regulations that allow data processing.

If we process your personal data based on your consent, you have the right to revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future.

We also process personal data for statistical and market analysis purposes. For example, statistics on industry affiliation, location, market area of website visitors are created and evaluated in anonymized form. Details can be found in the respective sections of this privacy policy.

For special services (e.g., sending newsletters), additional privacy notices may apply. We will inform you about these at the beginning of the use of the respective service.

 

2. Data Deletion and Duration of Storage

As a principle and unless otherwise specified, your personal data will only be stored as long as necessary for the purpose of collection and storage. According to your consent, data can be stored longer, as long as you do not revoke your consent.

Storage may also occur if this has been provided by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws, or other provisions to which we are subject. This is the case, for example, for billing data, which must usually be stored for at least 10 years.

If data is stored based on such a legal regulation, its processing will accordingly be restricted, i.e., the data will no longer be processed for any other purposes for which they were collected. A blocking or deletion of the data also takes place when a storage period prescribed by the mentioned standards expires, unless there is a necessity for further storage of the data for a contract conclusion or contract fulfillment.

 

3. Transfer to Third Countries

All data processing operations take place within the EU or the EFTA states.

 

General Data Usage for Website Provision and Creation of Log Files

When you access our website, we automatically store usage-related data about the usage process. This includes especially the IP address, the visited URLs, the duration of the visit, the operating system used, the browser used, and the amount of data transferred.

We collect this data to ensure the provision of our website. Additionally, they are used to anonymously analyze, store, and evaluate user behavior to continuously improve and further develop the service. Further details on the systems used can be found in the sections below on cookies and social media.

Your IP address is stored in the log files as far as necessary for security purposes. Moreover, your IP address is hashed, making it impossible for us to trace back to your connection or device. The purposes mentioned also represent our legitimate interest, which justifies the data processing according to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

The basis for processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

 

1. Data Processing for Profile Creation

 

1.1. Creating a User Profile as an Employer

Within our app, you have the option to create a profile to publish job advertisements and find suitable candidates. For this purpose, the following data is required: first name, last name, company (for legal entities), contact details (incl. email address and password, telephone number), address, billing address, registration data, company, and job descriptions. Additional data can be provided voluntarily.

The aforementioned required data are necessary to ensure that the user profile functions as intended and can be attributed only to you. The collection and processing of personal data in this context are justified by the performance contract we conclude with you. If you do not provide us with this data, we cannot set up a user profile for you and cannot provide our associated services.

The basis for processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.

 

1.2. Creating a User Profile as a chainstaffer ("mediator")

Within our application, we offer users the opportunity to create a profile by providing personal data. The data is entered into an input mask and transmitted and stored by us. Data is not passed on to third parties unless they explicitly apply for an open position, thus releasing their data to the employers advertising the position (see section 1.3). The processing of data occurs exclusively for the purpose of providing the user profile and its associated functionalities.

 

1.3. Creating a User Profile as a Candidate

Within our app, you have the option to create a profile to view job advertisements and participate in application processes. For this purpose, the following data is required: first name, last name, contact details (incl. email address and password, telephone number), address, photo, resume (including date of birth), and other application-relevant information (e.g., academic degrees, special skills and abilities, work experience, etc.). Additional data can be provided voluntarily.

If you create a user profile with us using your LinkedIn account (login via LinkedIn), we collect the information you have provided on LinkedIn and link it to your user profile on chainstaff.

The aforementioned required data are necessary to ensure that the user profile functions as intended and can be attributed only to you. Additionally, we can only consider you for suitable job advertisements and let you participate in application processes based on this data. The collection and processing of personal data in this context are justified by the usage contract we conclude with you. If you do not provide us with this data, we unfortunately cannot set up a user profile for you and cannot provide our associated services.

If you have created a user profile with us, we check the currency of the data you have provided over time by comparing it with the public profiles you have specified (e.g., on LinkedIn). If we find that your profile on chainstaff is no longer current, we will actively contact you.

The basis for processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.

 

2. Participation in an Application Process as an Employer

If you decide to unlock suitable candidates for your job advertisement, the data mentioned under section 1.1 about you will be disclosed to such candidates. Disclosure is necessary to facilitate contact between employers and candidates.

The basis for processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.

3. Participation in an Application Process as a Candidate

If you wish to participate in application processes, the data mentioned under section 1.3 about you will be disclosed to employers who have published a job advertisement. Disclosure is necessary to facilitate contact between employers and candidates and is therefore justified by the usage contract we have concluded with you.

If you access a job advertisement published by us via a link within a social network (e.g., LinkedIn), we collect and store the following information that you have made publicly available in the respective social network: first name, last name, referrer URL, employer, and job title, accessed job advertisement.

We need this information to ensure that you do not apply for the same position multiple times and that you are not approached multiple times regarding the same position.

The basis for processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.

 

4. Further Processing Based on Legal Obligations

In addition, we collect, store, and process personal data related to your use of our online services if we are obligated or authorized to do so by relevant legal regulations. This is the case, for example, with billing data that we need for proper accounting.

The basis for processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c) GDPR.

 

Data Transmission When Contacting Us

If you contact us via the contact form on the website or through the online services, we collect the following personal data: name, email address, telephone number.

We use this data exclusively to respond to your contact. Further processing does not occur. If you do not provide us with this data, unfortunately, we cannot process your request.

The basis for processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.

 

Data Processing When We Contact You

If you maintain a publicly accessible professional profile on our platform or a designated platform (e.g., LinkedIn), we may contact you regarding job advertisements that match your profile. Contact is made exclusively through the communication means provided within the respective platform (e.g., in-app messages).

If you show interest in our offer, we store the publicly accessible information from your professional profile to offer you the most suitable job offers.

In this case, the basis for processing is the (pre-)contractual relationship with you according to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.

If you are not interested in our offer or do not respond, we will not store any data about you. Only the publicly accessible information that you have independently entered in your chainstaff user profile will be retained.

To continuously improve our offer, we analyze the data available to us on applications, inquiries, job advertisements, etc.

The analyses are carried out for the purpose of business evaluations, marketing, and market research. We may consider user information along with details, e.g., about their used services. The analyses serve us to increase user-friendliness, optimize our offer, and business efficiency. The analyses are carried out solely for us and are not conducted via external service providers. They will not be disclosed to third parties unless they are anonymous analyses based on aggregated values.

The basis for processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

Cookie Policy

 

Effective from April 1, 2024

 

chainstaff AG believes that the collection and use of your data should be clear and transparent to you. This Cookie Policy applies to all products or services of chainstaff AG that reference or incorporate this policy by reference. We use cookies and similar technologies such as pixels, local storage, and mobile advertising IDs (collectively referred to as “Cookies” in this policy) to collect and use data as part of our services as defined in our Privacy Policy, which includes our websites, communications, mobile device apps, and offsite services. For transparency, this policy provides detailed information about how and when we use these technologies. By continuing to use our services, you agree that chainstaff uses cookies and similar technologies for the purposes outlined in this policy.

 

What Technologies Are Used?

 

Cookies

A cookie is a small file that is loaded onto your device, enabling chainstaff features. All browsers that load our websites receive cookies from us or third parties such as our customers, partners, or service providers. We or third parties may place cookies in your browser when you visit non-chainstaff websites that display our ads or provide our plug-ins or tags. We use two types of cookies: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie remains beyond the current session, serving many purposes, such as recognizing you as an existing user so you can return to chainstaff and interact with our services without needing to log in again. Since a persistent cookie remains in your browser, it is read by chainstaff when you return to one of our websites or visit a partner site that uses our services. Session cookies are valid only for the current session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).

 

Pixel

A pixel is a tiny image embedded on websites and in emails, requiring a call (providing device and visit information) to our servers for the pixel to be provided on these websites and in emails. We use pixels to learn more about your interactions with email content or web content, for example, whether you have responded to ads or posts. Pixels allow us and third parties to place cookies in your browser.

 

Local Storage

Local storage allows a website or application to store information locally on your device(s). Local storage can be used to improve the user experience on chainstaff, for example, by enabling features, saving your settings, and accelerating website functionality.

 

Other Similar Technologies

We also use other tracking technologies, for example, mobile advertising IDs and tags, for similar purposes as those described in this Cookie Policy. References to similar technologies in this policy include pixels, local storage, and other tracking technologies.

 

In our cookie tables, we list cookies and similar technologies that are used as part of our services. Please note that the names of cookies and similar technologies can change over time.

 

What Are These Technologies Used For?

 

Below, the purposes for which we use these technologies are described.

 

Authentication

We use cookies and similar technologies to recognize you when you access our services. If you are logged into chainstaff, these technologies help us show you the right information and personalize your user experience according to your settings. For example, chainstaff can identify you using cookies and verify your account.

 

Security

We use cookies and similar technologies to accelerate and better protect your interactions with our services. For example, we use cookies to activate and support our security features, to secure your account, and to detect malicious activities and violations of our user agreement.

 

Preferences, Features, and Services

We use cookies and similar technologies to enable the functionality of our services, for example, to make it easier for you to fill out forms in our services and to provide you with features, insights, and customized content in connection with our plug-ins. We also use these technologies to record information about your browser and your preferences. For example, cookies tell us which language you prefer and what your communication preferences are. We may also use local storage to accelerate website functionality.

Customized Content

We use cookies and similar technologies to personalize your user experience on our services. For example, cookies can help us remember previous searches so that we can offer you additional information related to your previous searches when you access our services again.

Plug-ins on and off chainstaff

We use cookies and similar technologies to activate chainstaff plug-ins on and off chainstaff websites. For example, our plug-ins, including the “Apply with chainstaff” and “Share” buttons, are found on chainstaff websites and third parties (e.g., on the websites of our customers and partners). Our plug-ins use cookies and other technologies to provide analytics and recognize you on chainstaff and third-party websites. When you interact with a plug-in (by clicking “Apply,” for example), the plug-in uses cookies to identify you and initiate your application request

 

Advertising

Through cookies and similar technologies, we can show you more relevant advertising both within and outside our services and measure the performance of such advertising. We use these technologies to determine if content has been shown to you or if someone who was shown an ad later returned and took an action on another site. Similarly, our partners or service providers may use these technologies to determine whether we have shown an ad or post and how successful it was, or to provide us information on how you react to ads. We may also work with our customers and partners to show you advertising within or outside of chainstaff, for example, after you've visited a customer's or partner's site or application. These technologies help us provide aggregated information to our customers and partners.

 

Analytics and Research
