PLEASE READ THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CAREFULLY BEFORE USING OUR PLATFORM

These terms tell the user of our website (“you”) about the rules for using our website, www.optunli.com (“our site”) and/or our software, Optunli (“our software”) (together “our platform”).

1. Who we are and how to contact us

The Optunli platform is operated by Vennpoint Ltd (“we“, “us”, “our”). We are a private limited company registered in England and Wales under company number 09740948 and have our registered office at 16 Beaufort Court Admirals Way, Docklands, London, England, E14 9XL.

To contact us, please email talkwithus@optunli.com.

2. How our platform works 

Optunli is a software system that enables individuals to identify relevant job and project opportunities that are available at a set time and in the future within organisations that choose to place these opportunities on Optunli.

Optunli for individuals

Individuals represent themselves in the system and as such you are wholly responsible for the accuracy and completeness of your data.

Creating a profile with false information is against our terms and the access to and use of our system will be terminated.

You are responsible for your profile information as well as any updates to this information.

If aa company  has paid for you to become a member of their Community they have the right to control access. The company may also specify a separate policy of use and have reports on your data, such as your preferences. However, aa company will not have the right to see your personal account.

Optunli for companies

Companies find individuals for opportunities that are currently available and planned.

Companies are wholly responsible for the accuracy and completeness of any data entered.

Creating a company a profile with false information or creating opportunities with misleading information is against our terms and access to and use of our system will be terminated.

_____

These Terms of Service describe your rights and responsibilities when using the Optunli platform (the “Services”). Please read them carefully. If you are a Customer (defined below), these Customer Terms govern your access and use of our Services. If you are being invited to a company’s Optunli Community  set up by a Customer, the User Terms of Service (the “User Terms”) govern your access to and use of the Services.

These “Terms” Form a Part of a Binding “Contract”

These Terms (or, if applicable, your written agreement with us) and any Order Form(s) together form a binding “Contract” between Customer and us.

Your Agreement On Behalf of “Customer”

If you purchase subscription(s), create a company  (i.e., a digital space where a group of users may access the Services), invite users to that company, or use or allow use of that company after being notified of a change to these Terms, you acknowledge your understanding of the then-current Contract and agree to the Contract on behalf of Customer. Please make sure you have the necessary authority to enter into the Contract on behalf of Customer before proceeding.

_____

CUSTOMER CHOICES  AND INSTRUCTIONS

Who is “Customer”? 

“Customer” is the company or organization that you represent in agreeing to the Contract. If your company is being set up by someone who is not formally affiliated with your company, Customer is the individual creating the company. For example, if you signed up using a personal email address and invited a couple of friends to work on a new startup idea but haven’t formed a company yet, you are the Customer.

Individuals are invited to be a member of a company’s community within Optunli. When an individual has accepted an invitation they become members of that community and are Authorised Company Users that are accounted for in the number of users included in the subscription agreement.

Signing Up Using a Corporate Email Domain

If you signed up for a plan using your corporate email domain, your organization is Customer, and Customer can modify and re-assign roles in your company (including your role) and otherwise exercise its rights under the Contract. If Customer elects to replace you as the representative with ultimate authority for the company, we will provide you with notice following such election and you agree to take any actions reasonably requested by us or Customer to facilitate the transfer of authority to a new representative of Customer.

Ordering Subscriptions

A subscription allows an Authorized User to access the Services. No matter the role, a subscription is required for each Authorized Company User.  An Authorised Company User is someone a company or organisation invites to be part of their Optunli Community and is known as a member of that community.  A subscription may be procured through the Services interface, or in some cases, via an order form entered into between Customer and us (each, an “Order Form”). Please see the Help Center for more information on procuring subscriptions and inviting new Authorized Users. Each Authorized User must agree to the User Terms to activate their subscription. Subscriptions commence when we make them available to Customer and continue for the term specified in the Services “check-out” interface or in the Order Form, as applicable. Each subscription is for a single Authorized User for a specified term and is personal to that Authorized User. We sometimes enter into other kinds of ordering arrangements, but that would need to be spelled out and agreed to in an Order Form. During an active subscription term, adding more subscriptions is fairly easy. Unless the Order Form says otherwise, Customer may purchase more subscriptions at the same price stated in the Order Form and all will terminate on the same date. Check out our Help Center pages for additional information on setting up a company and assigning roles.

Sharing of opportunities

We enable sharing of opportunities via a web link to that opportunity. You are solely responsible for providing any additional information.

You are solely responsible for ensuring that the web link complies with any relevant legal requirements and that all relevant notices as to data protection and terms of use are adequately in place.
