(hereafter “IamExpat”) and you further agree to be bound by the IamExpat website Terms of use, Privacy policy including where necessary the Data Transfer and Processing Terms and Conditions and Cookie policy.

1.2 In addition to section 1.1, additional terms may apply to specific features of the IamExpat Jobs Services. To the extent of any conflict between different agreements that you have with IamExpat, these IamExpat Jobs Services Terms and Conditions govern the use of the IamExpat Jobs Services.

1.3 The IamExpat Jobs Services allow your postings to be made available to IamExpat and enabled third parties websites and/or mobile applications (collectively, "Websites").

1.4 If you are accessing or using the IamExpat Jobs Services on behalf of a business or third party, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to do so and to bind that business or third party to these Jobs Services Terms and Conditions, and that your agreement to these Jobs Services Terms and Conditions will be treated as their respective agreement. In this event, IamExpat may hold you responsible for violations of this agreement by that business or third party, and "you," "your", "party" and “Customer” will also refer and apply to that business or third party.

2. Customer Responsibilities

2.1 You are responsible for (i) all postings and content submitted by or on your behalf through the IamExpat Jobs Services, including but not limited to the job descriptions, creatives, trademarks, images, URLs that comprise the job posts or content therefor (collectively, your "Job Posts"); and (ii) all content and property to which Job Posts may direct or redirect IamExpat website visitors ("Third Party Websites"). IamExpat will determine the size, placement and positioning of your postings. 

2.2 You are responsible for any activity conducted through your IamExpat account, including any purchases made or charges incurred.

2.4 You may not resell or transfer access to the IamExpat Jobs Services to any other party.

  • Create Job Posts that intentionally misrepresent the job, hiring company, or recruiter.
  • Fail to clearly disclose in any Job Post that a position is for an independent contractor or is part-time, piecework, commission-based, or has otherwise non-traditional working conditions or compensation may constitute intentional misrepresentation.
  • Create Job Posts for “business opportunities” that require payments or recruitment of others or that resemble franchises, multi-level marketing, club memberships, distributorships, or are entirely or almost entirely commission-based.
  • Provide identifiable applicant resumé or application data to any other parties.
  • “Spam” or otherwise contact applicants for purposes other than related to the specific employment opportunity described in the posting.
  • Harass, stalk, or contact any applicant after they have asked not to be contacted.
  • Create Job Posts for jobs that require applicants to pay for employment or otherwise bear costs related to employment in violation of applicable law.
  • Solicit employees by intentional misrepresentation.
  • Create Job Posts, advertise employment positions, or otherwise engage in recruitment or hiring practices that would be a violation of the law in your state or country or the state or country where the job is to be performed.
  • Engage in solicitations, communications or transactions that violate any applicable laws or regulations related to the prohibition of employment discrimination, or that violate applicable laws governing legal eligibility to work.
  • Engage in illegal or fraudulent conduct.
  • Use any automated means or form of scraping or data extraction to access, modify, download, query or otherwise collect information from the IamExpat Jobs Services.
  • Copy, modify or create derivative works of the IamExpat Jobs Services or any related technology.

  • Advertise or provide links to competitors of IamExpat (unless Customer itself is a competitor of IamExpat).

2.7 IamExpat may, in its sole discretion, modify, or terminate any part or all of the IamExpat Jobs Services or suspend your ability to use the IamExpat Jobs Services.
