Tellent will notify the Subscriber, in a reasonably timely manner, prior to introducing such limits.

2. General Terms

2.1 Subscriber Details The Subscriber warrants that it has provided all details necessary to legally identify the Subscriber to Tellent.

2.3 Illegitimate Use Any fraudulent, abusive, improper or unauthorized use of the Services or use in violation of the Agreement may be reason for Tellent, as it deems appropriate, to suspend, terminate or cancel Subscriber's right to use the Services or to access the Site. One person or legal entity may not maintain more than one free Company Account. Subscriber may not resell or otherwise provide the Services to any third party as a private label, with the inclusion of a mark-up fee or otherwise without the express written consent of Tellent.

Tellent is not liable for any loss or damage resulting from Subscriber's failure to comply with the obligations set out in this article, including the loss of control over a Company Account.

2.4 Relationship to End-Users For the sake of clarity and without prejudice to additional attribution to others, all use of Access Rights will be attributed to the Subscriber in the context of the Agreement. An End-User that is not the Subscriber does not derive any rights from these Terms.

Tellent has a right to immediate suspension if Tellent cannot be reasonably expected to continue providing the SaaS until the expiry of a reasonable cure period (after taking into account the given circumstances of the individual situation, in particular any fault on the part of both Parties, and weighing the interests of both Parties).

In particular, the Services may also provide the Subscriber with the opportunity to connect and publish Subscriber's information and/or data through third parties such as postings to social and business networking sites.

Tellent reserves the right to make changes to the Services at any time in an effort to improve the Services in part or as a whole. If a change may have significant negative consequences for Subscriber's existing use of the Services as described in the Documentation of the Services, the change will be announced if possible.

10. Third Party Service Providers

SUBSCRIBER UNDERSTANDS THAT TELLENT USES THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS TO OPERATE THE SERVICES. TELLENT DOES NOT WARRANT THAT INFORMATION OR DATA INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, PRICES AND RATINGS PROVIDED THROUGH THE SITE AND THE SERVICES WILL BE RELIABLE AND ACCURATE WHERE SUCH INFORMATION IS PROVIDED BY OR BY MEANS OF A THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDER.

11. Payments, Renewals, Refunds and Subscription Changes

11.1 Payments A valid credit card is required for paying fees, unless explicitly agreed otherwise or other payment methods are explicitly offered by Tellent for specific fees. Tellent may automatically charge fees for Services to credit cards entered into Tellent's SaaS. Unless specified otherwise by Tellent in the Agreement, all fees for a Subscription can be fully charged and are due 30 (thirty) calendar days in advance of each Subscription Term, or insofar as at such time the fees cannot reasonably be determined yet, then the moment that the fees can be reasonably determined. Tellent may suspend Subscriptions if any fees for a Subscription are overdue. Fees for all Services other than Subscriptions are immediately charged and due when the order is completed. 

11.2 Duration and Renewal Subscriptions are by default entered into for monthly or yearly Subscription Terms and renewed for the duration of the previous Subscription Term, unless explicitly specified otherwise in the Agreement. Subscriptions will be automatically renewed, unless a Party gives a Non-Renewal Notice 30 (thirty) calendar days in advance or a Business Day in advance in case of a Subscription with a monthly Subscription Term. A Non-Renewal Notice given by Subscriber will not affect renewals that have already been committed to by Subscriber. Any calculation of fees for renewals of Subscriptions will be based on fees excluding discounts.

11.3 Subscription Changes (Web Offers) Subscription Changes for Subscriptions based on Web Offers paid by credit card or SEPA direct debit will take effect immediately. In case of Subscription Changes related to Web Offers the start-date and end-date of the then-current Subscription Term will not be affected, unless the Subscription Change relates to the duration of the Subscription Term(s). If a Subscription Change relates to the duration of the Subscription Term(s) of a Subscription based on a Web Offer paid by credit card or SEPA direct debit, then a new Subscription Term will commence immediately. Subscriber will not be refunded or credited in case of Subscription Changes. However, if fees have been paid by credit card or SEPA direct debit for Subscriptions based on Web Offers, then in case of Subscription Changes the fees corresponding (calculated pro rata) to the part of an already paid for Subscription Term that lies in the future will be credited towards fees for future provision of Subscriptions.

11.4 Taxes and Currencies All fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and Subscriber shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties, excluding only taxes on the income of Tellent. All fees are either in Euro ('EUR'), United States dollars ('USD') or Pound sterling ('GBP').

11.5 SEPA Direct Debit If the Subscriber and Tellent agree that fees owed by Subscriber under the Agreement will be paid by SEPA direct debit, then in the case that the Subscriber or the bank of the Subscriber disputes the SEPA direct debit Tellent may charge the Subscriber for the fees that Tellent’s payment provider charges to Tellent for such a dispute.

11.6 Pricing Based on Number of Employees If the Subscriber has a Subscription for the SaaS with a Maximum Number of Employees, then upon exceeding that Maximum Number of Employees and notification by Tellent, Tellent may with immediate effect change the Subscription for that SaaS as follows, based on Tellent’s then-current list prices. The new fee will be that of the listed subscription with the lowest price for that SaaS for a Maximum Number of Employees that allows for the then-current Number of Employees of Subscriber, and the new Maximum Number of Employees will be the Maximum Number of Employees of that listed subscription. Subject to the fee changing again due to the Subscriber again exceeding the (new) Maximum Number of Employees, the changed fee will apply for the remaining part of the then-current Subscription Term and for the calculation of the fees of renewal Subscription Terms. Upon written request of Tellent the Subscriber must within two weeks provide Tellent with accurate information about the Number of Employees of Subscriber and evidence supporting that information, without disclosing personal data. Prior to providing such information and evidence the Subscriber may require Tellent to accept reasonable confidentiality obligations in relation to such information and evidence. Tellent’s rights to claim damage for the license excess shall remain unaffected.

12. Termination and Suspension

12.1 General Termination of Services, and thereby also the Agreement in so far as it is connected to such Services, can take place in multiple ways. Subscriber can terminate the Services at any time at its convenience with immediate effect by notifying Tellent. In case of such a termination (without prejudice to other terminations such as for breach): Subscriber will not be compensated for any damages arising out of the termination nor will any fees be refunded or credited and any fees for Subscription Terms (including renewals) that have been committed to will be due immediately (if not already). Tellent, in its sole discretion, has the right to at any time and without prior notice suspend or terminate Subscriber's Services and refuse any and all current or future use of the Services in case of a breach of the Agreement. Each Party may immediately terminate the Agreement if the other Party has been granted provisional suspension of payment or is declared bankrupt.

12.2 Data Export and Deletion of Data In case of termination of Services the Subscriber may download or request Subscriber Content held by Tellent as part of the terminated Services through the API of the SaaS within 30 (thirty) calendar days after termination. Tellent may delete all Subscriber Content held by Tellent as part of terminated Services 30 (thirty) calendar days after termination.

12.3 Legal Restrictions and Sanctions Tellent may at any time, without prior notice, terminate the Services if Tellent is prohibited from providing the Services to Subscriber by a) the laws and regulations applicable to Tellent or b) any of Tellent's business partners or service providers due to governmental economic sanctions against any country or state.

13. Intellectual Property and Content

13.1 IP-rights and Licenses As between Tellent and Subscriber, Subscriber will be the owner of all intellectual property rights to Subscriber Content. No intellectual property rights will be transferred in the context of this Agreement. All licenses granted to Subscriber in the context of this Agreement are worldwide, non-exclusive and limited in line with the limitations of the Services. No license for intellectual property rights is granted by Tellent where this is not necessary for the legitimate use of the Services by Subscriber. Any licenses provided by Tellent under this Agreement will end when this Agreement or the respective Services are terminated. The Subscriber grants Tellent a license to use Subscriber Content for the purpose of the provisioning of the Services and to improve the Services. Use of Subscriber Content by Tellent to improve the Services will only be done after Tellent has created a copy of Subscriber Content that has undergone a process of anonymizing, aggregating and/or diminishing to a point that it can no longer reasonably be considered confidential information nor personal data.

13.2 Restricted Content Subscriber agrees that it will not use the Services to process or store any content that (a) infringes, violates or otherwise interferes with any copyright or trademark of Tellent or a third party, (b) is libelous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, abusive, indecent, threatening, harassing, hateful, offensive or otherwise violates any law or right of any third party, (c) contains a virus, trojan horse, worm, time bomb or other computer programming routine or engine that is intended to damage, detrimentally interfere with, surreptitiously intercept or expropriate any system, data or information. If requested by Tellent the Subscriber warrants that it will remove any Subscriber Content that is in violation of this article or the Agreement promptly after notification of the Subscriber by Tellent. Tellent reserves the right to remove any Subscriber Content from the Services that is or reasonably appears to be in breach of this article or the Agreement.

13.3 Confidentiality Tellent will respect the confidentiality of Subscriber Content that is disclosed to Tellent exclusively through the SaaS, if the SaaS, as it was designed and intended, prevents the disclosure of such Subscriber Content to third parties. For example, confidentiality is required in principle in relation to Candidate data held in the Recruitee SaaS, but not required in relation to content published by the Subscriber on a public website as part of the Recruitee SaaS (hereinafter: 'Careers Site'). Tellent is not required to maintain the confidentiality of Subscriber Content that: (i) is or becomes generally available in the public domain through no fault of or breach of the Agreement by Tellent; (ii) Tellent can demonstrate in its records to have had rightfully in its possession prior to disclosure of the Subscriber Content to Tellent through the SaaS; (iii) Tellent rightfully obtains from a third party who has the right to transfer or disclose it, without default or breach of the Agreement; or (iv) Tellent can demonstrate in its records to have independently developed, without breach of the Agreement and/or any use of the Subscriber Content. Subscriber will use the SaaS in line with best security practices. Such practices include maintaining the confidentiality of any login or access credentials.

14. Promotions and Marketing

14.1 Tellent Branding Subscriber agrees that a "powered by Tellent", “Hiring with Recruitee” or similar graphic or similar text link can be included in the Services. Tellent will facilitate that such graphics or links can be disabled or hidden by an End-User for the Careers Site and e-mails sent by End-Users. Unless expressly prohibited by Subscriber in writing by notifying Tellent, Tellent may use Subscriber's company names, logos and trademarks to mention Subscriber's usage of the Services in press releases, interviews, promotional materials, sales sheets, presentations, websites and other self-promotional channels.

14.2 Promotions and Discounts Any promotions or discounts are valid only for Services to which the promotion or discount was originally applied; subsequent upgrades or addon Services are not guaranteed any promotions or discounts.

15. Privacy

15.1 Privacy Policy Subscriber and End-User will regularly check Tellent's privacy policy, which governs the use of personal data on the Site and in connection with the Service. Changes regarding privacy of End-Users will be communicated to End-Users through Tellent's privacy policy.

15.2 Data Processing Addendum The Data Processing Addendum ('DPA') available on Tellent's website (https://kiwihr.com/terms-and-conditions) applies as an addendum to these Terms. The DPA will not apply to a Subscription if the Parties have duly executed another written data processing agreement/addendum that is applicable to such a Subscription.

16. Electronic Delivery Policy

16.1 Notices by Tellent Subscriber agrees that Tellent may provide Subscriber required notices as referred to in the Agreement and other information concerning the Services electronically, including by communicating to any End-User with an Administrator role on the e-mail address associated with his account or through notifications to such an End-User in the SaaS. 

16.2 Delivery failures Tellent is not responsible for e-mails to Subscriber or End-User "bouncing" or being rejected and other delivery failures that cannot be attributed to Tellent.

16.3 Notices by Subscriber Notices by Subscriber will be given by postal mail, registered letter or by any additional optional means that Tellent explicitly designates for specific notices.

17.1 Contracting Party Tellent, as defined in Article 0 of these Terms, will be the contracting party.

17.2 If Subscriber is located in DACH If Subscriber is located in Germany, Austria or Switzerland, then this Agreement and Subscriber’s use of the Services shall be governed by the laws of Germany, without regard to any conflict of laws principles. In that case any legal proceedings related to this Agreement and the Services provided by Tellent shall solely be settled by the competent court of Munich, Germany.

17.3 If Subscriber is located elsewhere If Subscriber is located anywhere other than in Germany, Austria or Switzerland, then this Agreement and Subscriber’s use of the Services shall be governed by the laws of the Netherlands, without regard to any conflict of laws principles.

Modifications will enter into effect at the beginning of any subsequent Subscription Terms or when Subscription Changes take place. Such modifications will only apply to a subsequent Subscription Term in so far as they are published at least 40 days before the respective Subscription Term starts. Tellent may explicitly indicate that foregoing modifications will enter into effect earlier, in such case Subscriber may terminate a Subscription immediately and receive a refund of pre-paid fees for the terminated portion of a pre-paid Subscription Term. Modifications to the Terms apply to any and all earlier versions of these Terms including Documents that were based on such versions.

18.2 Entire Agreement The entire Agreement will only consist of these Terms, offers made by Tellent in writing, documents signed by Tellent or terms, conditions & offers explicitly agreed to by an authorized representative of Tellent in writing. The Agreement supersedes any and all prior or contemporaneous understandings or agreements, written or oral, regarding the subject matter thereof. Unless agreed otherwise between the Parties, in case of separate service level agreements or data-processing agreements between the Parties relating to the Services, those agreements will be added to these Terms as addenda.

18.3 Survival For the sake of clarity, after termination the Agreement will remain in effect with regard to intellectual property, due payments, disclaimers, limitations of liability and any other subject matter that requires survival due to its nature and/or purpose.

18.4 Trials Tellent reserves the right to terminate a free trial Subscription at any point in time for any or no reason.

18.6 Waivers The failure of either Party to exercise in any respect any right provided for under the Agreement shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights under the Agreement.

18.7 Force Majeure Tellent shall be excused from performance of its obligations under this Agreement if and to the extent such a failure to perform results from compliance with any requirement of applicable law or government order, acts of God, pandemic, epidemic, disease, fire, embargo, terrorist attack, war, insurrection or riot, national or regional emergency, denial of service or any other causes beyond the reasonable control of Tellent. Any delay resulting from any such cause shall extend performance timelines proportionally.

18.8 Severability If any provision of the Agreement is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that the Agreement shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.

18.9 Assignments and Use by Third Parties Tellent is offering the Services solely for use or benefit of the Subscriber and its Affiliates and not for the use or benefit of any other parties.

1. General

1.1 This DPA is an addendum to the Terms and applies only in relation to any Processing of Personal Data by Tellent as a Processor on behalf of the Subscriber as Controller as described in DPA Appendix 1. This DPA modifies and supplements the Terms. This DPA may be modified by Tellent under the same terms and conditions that apply to modifications to the Terms.

1.2 The following documents form an integral part of this DPA: (i) this document and (ii) any document attached to this DPA that is labelled as a ‘DPA Appendix’. Any reference to the DPA shall be deemed to include a reference to said documents.

1.3 In the event of any inconsistency arising between the provisions of this DPA and the Terms, the provisions of this DPA shall prevail, unless explicitly mentioned otherwise in this DPA.

1.4 For the sake of clarity, this DPA will apply to any Processing of Personal Data by Tellent as Processor on behalf of the Subscriber as Controller as part of the Services under the Agreement, unless Parties have explicitly made other contractual arrangements relating to said Processing of Personal Data.

2. Processing of Personal Data

2.1 Tellent shall Process Personal Data on Subscriber’s behalf in accordance with the instructions of the Subscriber provided through the use of the Services and as set out in DPA Appendix 1. The details of the Processing of Personal Data are specified in DPA Appendix 1.

2.2 Subscriber shall ensure that Tellent may lawfully Process the Personal Data on Subscriber's behalf in accordance with this DPA for the performance of the Agreement. Where required under Applicable Data Protection Law, Subscriber shall ensure that the Data Subjects have given their consent for the Processing and have been informed. 

2.3 Subscriber's instructions for the Processing of Personal Data shall comply with Applicable Data Protection Law. If Tellent believes that any instruction of Subscriber infringes Applicable Data Protection Law, it will inform Subscriber without delay. Tellent shall be entitled to suspend performance on such instruction until Subscriber confirms or modifies such instruction. Tellent is not required to actively investigate whether instructions from the Subscriber are compliant with the Applicable Data Protection Law. 

2.4 Tellent may be legally required under applicable laws and regulations to disclose Personal Data that it Processes to third parties such as authorities. If this is the case, Subscriber will be informed by Tellent insofar as permitted by applicable laws and regulations.

3. Security & Confidentiality

Tellent will implement and maintain appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect the Personal Data against destruction, loss or unauthorized access or other forms of unauthorized or unlawful Processing of Personal Data. These measures will ensure a level of security appropriate to the risks presented by the Processing and the nature of the Personal Data to be protected having regard to the state of the art and the cost of their implementation. These measures include, but are not limited to, the measures listed in DPA Appendix 2. Subscriber understands and agrees that these measures are subject to change and development and Tellent is therefore expressly allowed to implement alternative measures. 

3.2 Subscriber has the sole responsibility to ensure that End-Users use the Services in line with best security practices and in accordance with Applicable Data Protection Law. Such practices include but are not restricted to maintaining the confidentiality of any login or access credentials.

3.3 Tellent shall ensure that personnel authorised to Process Personal Data have committed themselves to confidentiality or are under an appropriate statutory obligation of confidentiality.

4. Third Country Data Transfers

4.1 Tellent will not transfer Personal Data to any Third Country, unless Tellent has obtained a general or specific prior written consent of the Subscriber.

4.2 The Subscriber agrees that in case no appropriate adequacy decision or any other appropriate data transfer mechanism applies for transfer of Personal Data to a Third Country and such transfer requires such a decision or mechanism under Applicable Data Protection Law, Tellent will enter into Standard Contractual Clauses. Subscriber hereby expressly authorizes Tellent and its Sub-processors to enter into Standard Contractual Clauses, (also) on its behalf as far as necessary, and commissions Tellent and its Sub-processors to enforce these Standard Contractual Clauses on the Subscriber’s behalf where appropriate. For the sake of clarity, this article 4.2 does not provide any consent as potentially required under article 4.1 of this DPA.

4.3 Nothing in this DPA will be construed to prevail over any conflicting clause of any Standard Contractual Clauses that have been entered into by Tellent including Standard Contractual Clauses entered into on behalf of the Subscriber.

5. Rights of Data Subjects

5.1 Subscriber will inform Data Subjects that it is the Controller and how Data Subjects may contact the Subscriber with requests. Tellent will not be that contact point. Tellent shall make an effort, to the extent legally permitted, to immediately notify Subscriber, if it receives a request from a Data Subject for access to, inspection, data portability, correction (rectification) or deletion (erasure) of Data Subject’s Personal Data. Tellent shall not respond to any such requests of Data Subjects without Subscriber’s prior written consent.

5.2 Tellent shall provide Subscriber with cooperation and assistance to allow Data Subjects to exercise any rights they might have under Applicable Data Protection Law, such as access, correction, deletion and/or data portability. Tellent will provide such cooperation and assistance only on Subscriber’s request and only in so far as Subscriber cannot meet his obligations under Applicable Data Protection Law without Tellent’s cooperation and assistance.

6. Data Breach Notification

6.1 Tellent shall, to the extent permitted by law, notify Subscriber without undue delay of a Security Breach with regard to the Personal Data Processed on behalf of the Subscriber under this DPA. 

6.2 Such notification shall include at least: (a) a description of the nature of the Security Breach, including where possible, information that assists the Subscriber in determining the categories of and approximate number of Data Subjects concerned and the categories and approximate number of Personal Data records concerned; (b) information available to Tellent that assists the Subscriber in determining the likely consequences of the Security Breach; and (c) a description of the measures taken or proposed to be taken by Tellent to address the security breach, including, where appropriate, measures to mitigate its possible adverse effects. 

6.3 Subscriber is solely responsible for complying with any Security Breach notification obligations applicable to Subscriber. The performance of Tellent's obligation to report or respond to a Security Breach under this article is not an acknowledgement by Tellent of any fault or liability with regard to the Security Breach.

7. Sub-processors

7.1 Tellent may use Sub-processors to perform Processing of Personal Data, on behalf of Subscriber, as part of the Services provided by Tellent to Subscriber. The Subscriber hereby gives a general written authorisation to Tellent to engage any Sub-processor for the Processing of Personal Data. Tellent may only engage a Sub-processor if it has imposed, in writing, the necessary responsibilities and obligations on the Sub-processor as required by article 28 GDPR.  Tellent may remove or appoint other Sub-processors in accordance with this article. Tellent will give at least six weeks prior notice of any changes to the list of Sub-processors. The Subscriber can object to a Sub-processor by using its termination rights under the Agreement. If Subscriber does not terminate the Agreement within this timeframe, Subscriber is deemed to accept the respective Sub-processor. Where the Sub-processor fails to fulfil its data protection obligations, Tellent shall remain similarly liable to Subscriber for the performance of its obligations under this DPA.

8. Information & Audits

8.1 If Subscriber reasonably concludes that an audit or inspection of technical and organisational measures at Tellent’s premises is necessary to monitor the compliance with this DPA in an individual case, Subscriber shall have the right to carry out such an audit or inspection provided such audit or inspection will be conducted (i) during regular business hours, and (ii) without interfering with Tellent’s business operations, (iii) upon prior notice of at least 30 days in advance and further consultation with Tellent, (iv) all subject to (if not covered already by the Agreement) the execution of a confidentiality undertaking, and (v) at most once a year. Subscriber will bear its own expenses and compensate Tellent for the cost with regard to any internal resources required to conduct the audit. Such audit or inspection shall be carried out by the Subscriber or an inspection authority composed of independent persons in possession of the required professional qualifications, selected by the Subscriber. Subscriber will furnish immediately after the verification or inspection to Tellent a copy of the report of such audit.

8.2 Subscriber agrees that it will cooperate, together with Tellent, with Supervisory Authorities. Tellent will reasonably allow for and contribute to audits and inspections, conducted by Supervisory Authorities. Subscriber will notify Tellent immediately of any planned audits and inspections by Supervisory Authorities.

8.3 Tellent shall provide, upon written request, any such information and assistance the Subscriber may require for compliance with the Applicable Data Protection Law including to perform data protection impact assessments. Tellent will provide such information and assistance only in so far as Subscriber cannot meet its obligations under the Applicable Data Protection Law without Tellent’s information and assistance.

8.4 Tellent may require Subscriber to sign a reasonable confidentiality agreement before complying with its obligations under this article.

9. Return of Personal Data 

9.1 Upon termination of any Service, Subscriber’s right to access or use the respective Service immediately ceases, and Tellent shall have no obligation to maintain any associated Personal Data. The Parties agree that Tellent shall in such event at the choice of the Subscriber either return all Personal Data to the Subscriber or shall destroy/delete all the Personal Data, unless prohibited from doing so by any applicable laws and regulations. If Subscriber doesn’t make such a choice, then Tellent may delete Personal Data 30 days after the termination of the Service. The return of Personal Data by Tellent may take place by allowing the Subscriber access to the Personal Data through Tellent’s API.

9.2 Tellent will, upon request of Subscriber and after the termination of the Service, declare in writing towards Subscriber that all copies of Personal Data have been permanently destroyed or returned to Subscriber.

10. CCPA Compliance

10.2 Tellent is hereby prohibited from: (1) selling personal information it receives under this DPA; and (2) collecting, retaining, using, or disclosing such personal information for any purpose other than processing it as set out in this DPA.

Service Level Addendum (for Recruitee SaaS Lead and Optimize plans and Javelo SaaS)

Last modified: 6th of October 2023

0. Definitions

‘Available’ / ‘Availability’: the time during which the SaaS or a Functionality is accessible by Subscriber for live, real-time processing and data exchange at a reasonably acceptable speed;

‘Downtime’: time during which the SaaS is not Available;

1. Applicability of this SLA

1.1 General This SLA is an addendum to the terms and conditions agreed to between Subscriber and Tellent, also defined in said document as ‘Terms’, as set out on: https://kiwihr.com/terms-and-conditions. This SLA modifies and supplements the Terms. This SLA sets out terms and conditions relating to service levels in addition to the Terms, but only in so far as Subscriber is on a Subscription for the Recruitee SaaS that is designated as a ‘Lead’ and/or ‘Optimize’ plan and/or a Subscription for the Javelo SaaS. This SLA may be modified by Tellent under the same terms and conditions that apply to modifications to the Terms.

1.2 Inconsistencies In case of any inconsistencies between this SLA and the Terms, this SLA will prevail. If the Parties have entered into a data processing agreement/addendum relating to the processing of personal data (‘DPA’) in relation to a Subscription, then the DPA will prevail over this SLA in relation to such a Subscription. This SLA will not apply to a Subscription if the Parties have duly executed a separate written service level agreement/addendum that is applicable to such a Subscription.

2. Availability

2.1 Availability warranty Tellent warrants a minimum Availability of 99.5% per quarter for the majority of the Functionalities of the SaaS (‘Availability Warranty’).

2.2 Exclusions A Functionality of the SaaS is considered to be Available in so far as Downtime results from or can be attributed to:

  • The Subscriber using or opting-in for features designated by Tellent as alpha or beta;
  • Factors outside of Tellent’s reasonable control;
  • Violation of the Terms or this SLA by the Subscriber;
  • Use of Functionality by the Subscriber in a manner for which it was not designed or intended;
  • Downtime that was planned by Tellent and announced in advance.

2.3 Credits If Tellent does not meet the Availability Warranty set out in this article, then Tellent will credit towards future invoices for Services provided by Tellent, on Subscriber’s request, 10% of the quarterly fee for the SaaS in so far as such fee has been paid for the one quarter period that Tellent did not meet the requirements of the warranty (‘Availability Warranty Credit’). A failure to meet the requirements of the Availability Warranty will not result in any other liability or Subscriber entitlement/right than the Availability Warranty Credit nor will it entitle the Subscriber to a refund.

2.4 Calculations For the purposes of this article a quarter is every consecutive 3-month period after the start of the Subscription for the SaaS. The quarterly fee for the SaaS will be calculated pro rata from the Subscription fee of the SaaS. Tellent's administration is leading for the calculation of the Availability, but Subscriber has access to review the most recent performance on https://status.recruitee.com for the Recruitee SaaS and https://javelo.statuspage.io for the Javelo SaaS. Tellent may implement or make use of a different performance monitoring tool in its sole discretion and will notify Subscriber of such a change.

3. Back-ups and recovery

Tellent will at least on a daily basis make back-ups of Subscriber Data and make commercially reasonable efforts to restore Subscriber Data, free of any additional charge, in case of data loss that is attributable to Tellent.

Product Specific Terms

Last modified: 6th of October 2023

1. General

1.1 These Product Specific Terms are an addendum to the Terms. These Product Specific Terms modify and supplement the Terms. These Product Specific Terms may be modified by Tellent under the same terms and conditions that apply to modifications to the Terms.

2.4 Job Advertisements - Tellent's Commitment

2.4.1 Tellent will make commercially reasonable efforts to distribute Job Advertisements through Distribution Channels. However, Subscriber acknowledges and accepts that Tellent does not control the Distribution Channels or communication networks, and that it cannot guarantee that Subscriber's Job Advertisements will actually be delivered over the Internet or via communication networks, be accepted by the relevant Distribution Channels, or be received and/or read by job applicants or potential job applicants.

2.4.2 Tellent may engage third parties as an intermediary for the distribution of Job Advertisements and such intermediaries are considered part of the Distribution Channels.

2.4.3 Subscriber accepts that entities in the Distribution Channels have no obligation to use or display a Job Advertisement and may reject a Job Advertisement for any reason or no reason, regardless of whether Subscriber is on a paid Subscription, a trial or free Subscription, or even if Subscriber has paid for a Premium Job Advertisement. Subscriber agrees that Tellent is not liable to Subscriber or any third party if Subscriber's Job Advertisement is rejected or not posted, and Subscriber will not be entitled to any refund for Job Advertisements not posted or distributed.

2.4.4 Should Subscriber cancel a Premium Job Advertisement, Tellent does not offer a refund.

2.4.5 By submitting a Job Advertisement, Subscriber gives Tellent permission to distribute that Job Advertisement in the Distribution Channels.

2.4.6 Tellent makes no guarantee as to the number or quality of Candidates that Subscriber will receive as a result of Subscriber's Job Advertisement. Subscriber is solely responsible for interviewing, performing background and reference checks on, verifying information provided by, and selecting an appropriate candidate.

2.5 Job Advertisements - Responsibility Subscriber's Job Advertisements must comply with any applicable laws and regulations including those relating to labour and employment, and anti-discrimination. Subscriber understands and agrees that Subscriber is solely responsible for any liability or claims arising out of publication of Job Advertisements or material which third parties can access through such Job Advertisements. Subscriber agrees to indemnify and hold Tellent and its subsidiaries, and their respective officers, directors, employees, and agents harmless from and against any and all claims, costs, damages, losses, liabilities and expenses (including attorneys' fees and costs) arising out of a breach of this article by Subscriber or a breach of the additional service policies of Distribution Channels. In certain cases, Distribution Channels may require that Subscriber agrees to additional service policies in order to allow Subscriber's Job Advertisement to be distributed on or via their services, and Subscriber hereby agrees to such additional service policies as they apply to the distribution of Subscriber's Job Advertisements. Subscriber is solely responsible for researching the policies of entities in the Distribution Channels. Subscriber agrees not to post or promote any Job Advertisements that: contain inaccurate, spammy, false, misleading or offensive information; contain hidden keywords, or; sell or promote services.

2.6 Changes to Distribution Channels Changes in relation to any Distribution Channels for Job Advertisements can be made at any time, with no prior announcement and at Tellent's convenience.

2.7 Trial period Use of a Subscription for the Recruitee SaaS is free during Subscriber's free trial period which is 18 days by default, unless the Parties agree otherwise or the Subscriber enters into a paid Subscription.

2.8 SLA for Selected Plans The Service Level Addendum ('SLA') available on Tellent's website (https://kiwihr.com/terms-and-conditions) applies as an addendum to these Terms. The SLA will not apply to a Subscription if the Parties have duly executed another written service level agreement/addendum that is applicable to such a Subscription.

2.9 Careers Site Tellent may offer Subscriber a Careers Site. This Careers Site is intended, among other things, to provide the public with a list of job opportunities, and therefore Subscriber's usage of the Careers Site is not intended to be private.

If the Subscription of the Subscriber is due for renewal with a Subscription Term of less than 1 (one) year, then Tellent may at each renewal of such Subscription increase its applicable fees, rates and prices for the Subscription with up to 5% in relation to the previous Subscription Term.
