Please feel free to take part in discussions by posting comments on any of the discussion forums available on our websites.

However, please do not use our forums:

  • to transmit, distribute, store or destroy any material in violation of any applicable law or regulation; or in a manner that will infringe the copyright, trademark, trade secret or other intellectual property rights of others or violate their privacy, publicity or other personal rights; or which is defamatory, obscene, threatening, abusive or hateful;

Your privacy

Please read our Privacy Policy carefully before using any of our websites. Our Privacy Policy is an important part of these Terms of Use.

Our Privacy Policy governs our treatment of any information, including personally identifiable information, you may supply to us. You acknowledge that your submission of any information, statements, data, and content to us is done entirely voluntarily and that you agree that we may process such information, in accordance with applicable legislation and the terms of our Privacy Policy.

Intellectual property rights

All rights in and to the content of our websites are reserved and retained by us. Users of our websites are not granted any rights in respect of any of the content of our websites.

Website maintenance and downtime

From time to time it may be necessary for use to maintain our websites. Maintenance may temporarily interrupt the provision of our services. The average availability uptime for our Premium Services will not be less than 99% in a year (excluding any network issues that may be experienced by your network service provider).

Scheduled maintenance downtime will be communicated to you via the website (if the downtime is 2 hours or less), and via email to you at least 48 hours prior to the downtime, if that downtime is scheduled to last more than 2 hours. Scheduled maintenance will, where possible, be outside normal South African business hours.

Limiting our liability

Although we try our best to ensure the integrity of our websites we cannot warrant that they will always operate without error or that files, downloads or applications available via our websites will be free of viruses and other nasty computer bugs which could potentially corrupt or affect your computer.

To the greatest extent legally permissible, you agree that we will not be liable for any costs, expenses, losses or damages of any nature whatsoever arising out of or in any way connected with your use of any of our websites.

We do not warrant the accuracy, reliability, completeness or timeliness of the material, services, software, text, and graphics set out on our websites. Where our websites contain links to any other internet websites, you acknowledge that we do not have control over any such websites and cannot be responsible for what happens if you access any external website through a link we may have provided.

Capping our liability where we can't exclude it

If you have a damages claim against us or one of our affiliates (being any of our subsidiaries, affiliated companies, suppliers, employees, shareholders, or directors), we will under no circumstances be liable to you for a cumulative sum in excess of five times the most recent monthly fee you paid to us (if you subscribe for a Premium Service) or R250, whichever is the greater. This liability cap is an essential part of our agreement with you and without it the terms and conditions on the basis of which we have contracted with you would be substantially different.

Disclaimers in respect of specific websites

Paying for a Premium Service

For those of you who will be signing up for one of the services we offer for a fee (a “Premium Service”), please pay particular attention to this section.

The specific payment terms applicable to you will depend on the option you choose when you subscribe for a Premium Service. Any information you supply to us and any option, package, or plan you select during the registration process forms part of your agreement with us.

If you purchase any Premium Services, you agree to us storing your payment information. You also agree to pay all applicable fees and all related taxes as they become due, and to reimburse us for all collection costs we may incur recovering overdue payments (on an attorney-own-client scale) as well as interest on any overdue amounts, tracing agents' charges and commission.

Please note that a failure to pay your Premium Service fee on time may result in the suspension or termination of your Premium Service.

If the payment method you selected during the registration process reaches its expiration date, and you do not edit your payment method information or cancel your subscription, you authorize us to continue billing you as is and you agree that you will remain responsible for all fees which accrue after your payment method authorisation expires.

The sending of an SMS, via the various recruitment tools, to Seekers are included as part of the definition of “Premium Service”. MobiHire supports the sending of an SMS and includes 2 SMS as part of the initial contract offering. Any additional SMS over and above the 2 included will be charged at additional agreed rates.

You agree to accept the electronic submission of invoices including tax invoices.

Cancelling or suspending a Premium Service

Please note that early termination of your Premium Service may result in a cancellation fee or the loss any discounts you may have been entitled to in a particular service period. Termination of your Premium Service will mean you are downgraded to our standard service.

Additional terms applicable to Recruiters

Anyone accessing any of our websites or using any of our services for the purpose of finding a candidate for a job vacancy is asked to pay particular attention to this section. For the avoidance of doubt, the service regulated in terms of this section is a Premium Service.

Whenever we refer to 'you' in this section we mean you in your role as a Recruiter. A Recruiter is someone who makes use of the online toolset we provide for job profiling, job advertisement media placement and job application response management (what we will call, for the purposes of this section, “the Service”).

With the exception of your own resumé database (if you have one), the copyright and all other intellectual property rights in the Service, including any improvements and modifications, belong to us.

If, at any time these Terms of Use are in force, you choose to operate an online job board or offer any services which are, in our sole discretion, reasonably similar to or in direct competition with the Service, we will have the right to suspend the Service or terminate this Agreement immediately. Terminating the Service this way will not prejudice any other rights we may have against you.

For the purpose of this section we will call a resumé that has been viewed (opened so that you may view the full details of the resumé), forwarded (to your default email address) or downloaded (saved onto your system) within a 24 hour period, a “Clicked Resumé”. We reserve the right to regulate the use of Clicked Resumés.

Our regulation of Clicked Resumés is aimed at ensuring that all our users have fair and equal use of the Service, and that the integrity of the Service is protected against improper use. By 'improper use' we mean:

  • supplying, selling, copying or licensing material from our database to any other person (including another member of your group of companies if applicable);
  • downloading, searching or viewing our database through any automated (e.g. “scraping”) process;
  • contacting any of the individuals on our database or making or allowing any information about those individuals to be used for a purpose other than for finding a suitable candidate for a specific job vacancy.

You are alerted to your obligations in respect of accessing and using personal information (as set out in the Protection of Personal Information Act, 2013). Please note, you indemnify us against any damage, loss, liability or harm incurred or suffered by us as a result of accessing or using any personal information obtained from the use of our Service in breach of your statutory obligations.

The pricing for the provision of the Service, the service period, and your usage allowances for the number of Clicked Resumés in that service period will be set out in the Pricing Proposal you accept when you subscribe for this service.

Just so you're clear on how we keep track of things, a single Clicked Resumé unit is counted for any number of resumé interactions (including viewing, forwarding, downloading and contacting) within a 24 hour period. A counter will show the number of remaining Clicked Resumés units remaining in any particular service period. We will send an email alert to you when only 10% of your units remain. For an additional fee you can top up your units during a service period. Please note that you will not be able to claim a refund for any units which remain unused at the end of the service period.

In the event that you do not make use of or access the Service for a consecutive period of 3 months, your company logo and branding (provided to us on registration) shall be removed from our company listing page. Your branding will be relisted if you re-access the service during what remains of your service period.

If you want to make any changes to the service you've subscribed for you please Contact Us with your request. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to accept your request but we will do our best to accommodate you.
