Terms and Conditions of Use
Welcome to CAPIC Connect Classifieds. These Terms and Conditions of Use (the “ Terms”) are between you and the Canadian Association of Professional Immigration Consultants (“ CAPIC”) and describe the terms on which CAPIC offers you, either an individual or entity wishing to post a job on the CAPIC Connect Classifieds (“ Employer”) or an individual or entity wishing to view the posted jobs (“ Candidate”), (collectively or individually, “ you”), use of the CAPIC Connect Classifieds.
The CAPIC Connect Classifieds are made available by CAPIC solely under these Terms. By using and accessing the Services (as defined below), you agree to be bound by these Terms and you may access and use the Services only on the condition that you read and accepts these Terms.
CAPIC Connect Classifieds (the “ Services”) are provided and administered by CAPIC for the professional benefit of its members. It is a place for members of CAPIC to connect with potential employers who need services and may have the intention of hiring CAPIC members. Employers submit information regarding available jobs to CAPIC for it to be shared on CAPIC Connect Classifieds (“ Job Posting”). CAPIC does not review or approve the content of the Job Posting other than as set out in these Terms and does not participate in the communication between Employers and Candidates.
To be eligible to use the Services, you must meet the following criteria and represent and warrant that you: (i) are 18 years of age or older; (ii) have full power and authority to enter into these Terms; and (iii) will not violate any rights of CAPIC, including intellectual property rights.
Any Employer wishing to use the Services must meet the following criteria and represents and warrants to CAPIC that: (i) they are an individual with the capacity to hire employees or an organization in good standing that is eligible to hire employees; (ii) the text provided for the Job Posting is for posting on the “Classifieds” section of CAPIC’s members-only portal, CAPIC Connect; (iii) the individual listed in the contact point section is authorized to post the Job Posting on their behalf; and (iv) the content of the Job Posting is not in breach of any provincial or federal laws in Canada.
An Employer is an individual or organization, or other legal entity, which is seeking candidates for consideration for a job. An Employer must share the following identifying information as part of the Job Posting: Employer legal name, Employer business name, address and the name, title, email address and phone number of a contact person. The Employer must also provide the following information regarding the Job Posting: title, requirements, duties, form of employment (full-time/part-time/contract/other), and whether the job will be performed remotely, on site, or in a hybrid manner. Finally, the Employer will indicate how long a Job Posting should remain on the CAPIC Connect Classifieds (the maximum period of 30 days will be selected if none specified). CAPIC will review the information submitted by the Employer for compliance with these Terms and, subject to CAPIC’s approval, publish completed Job Postings on the CAPIC Connect Classifieds. CAPIC will then notify Candidates that a Job Posting has been published.
As between CAPIC and the Employer, the Employer own the rights in the information they provide and may request its deletion at any time. The Employer agrees that they will not: (i) submit material that is copyrighted, protected by trade secret or otherwise subject to third party proprietary rights, including privacy and publicity rights, unless they are the owner of such rights or have permission from their rightful owner to post the material and to grant CAPIC all of the license rights granted herein; (ii) submit falsehoods or misrepresentations; (iii) submit material that is unlawful, obscene, defamatory, libelous, threatening, pornographic, harassing, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive, or encourages conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, violate any law, or is otherwise inappropriate; (iv) post advertisements or solicitations of business: (v) impersonate another person. CAPIC is not responsible for and does not endorse any Job Posting or any opinion, recommendation, or advice expressed therein, and CAPIC expressly disclaims any and all liability in connection with all Job Postings. CAPIC does not intend to allow copyright infringing activities and infringement of intellectual property rights on the CAPIC Connect Classifieds, and CAPIC reserves the right to remove Job Postings if properly notified that such submission infringes on the intellectual property rights of a third party. CAPIC may terminate access to the Services if an Employer is determined to be a repeat infringer. CAPIC also reserves the right to decide whether the content of a Job Posting is appropriate and complies with the Terms. Job Postings containing pornography, obscene, hateful, harmful or defamatory material, or submissions of excessive length are prohibited. CAPIC may terminate access for uploading such material in violation of the Terms at any time, without prior notice and at its sole discretion. CAPIC may remove any Job Posting, for any reason, at any time, without prior notice and at its sole discretion.
The content of the Job Posting is the sole responsibility of the Employer that prepares it. CAPIC does not make any warranty as to the accuracy, completeness, truthfulness, or reliability of the Job Postings. Candidates are encouraged to practice due diligence before reaching any contractual agreements with any Employer. Any employment arrangement/business activity entered between the Employer and a Candidate as a result of a Job Posting is proprietary, private business activity and does not involve CAPIC in any way.
The Employer hereby grants CAPIC a non-exclusive, irrevocable, worldwide, perpetual, unlimited, assignable, sublicensable, royalty-free right to use copy, prepare derivative works, improve, distribute, publish, remove, retain, add, process, analyze any information that is provided.
