4. SITE CONTENT AND DATA PROTECTION

4.1 The Candidate acknowledges that it bears sole responsibility for checking the accuracy and completeness of all Candidate Details on the Site and for checking the accuracy and completeness of any Candidate Details or other information provided to TAD. For the avoidance of doubt, this Clause 4 shall apply to all Candidate Details, whether submitted via the Site by the Candidate itself, or on the Candidate’s behalf by another person (whether by TAD or a third party).

4.3 The Candidate warrants, represents and undertakes that none of the Candidate Details submitted via the Site will:

  1. be obscene, indecent, defamatory, infringing of third party rights (of whatever nature and including any Intellectual Property Rights) or otherwise unlawful under the laws of any jurisdiction from which the Site may be accessed;
  2. be in breach of any applicable regulations, standards or codes of practice;
  3. be untruthful, deceptive or misleading;
  4. harm the reputation of TAD in any way.

4.4 TAD shall retain the right at all times to amend, modify or suspend the Site (or any part thereof) from time to time including refusal to provide the Services or any part thereof, refusal to submit any Candidate Details (where the Candidate requests their submission) and to suspend availability of the Site and/or to remove any Candidate Details already submitted via the Site which may, in the opinion of TAD, not be in compliance with any of the provisions of Clause 4.3.

4.5 Any exercise of TAD’s rights under Clause 4.4 above shall be without prejudice to the obligations of the Candidate under Clause 4.3. Submission of any Candidate Details by TAD via the Site shall not under any circumstances constitute a waiver of any of its rights in relation to such Candidate Details or of any breach of the Candidate’s obligations under this Agreement.

4.6 For the purposes of this Agreement, TAD (and/or any Schools who may be in receipt of the Candidate Data) will be acting as a data processor on the Candidate’s behalf with respect to the Candidate Data, whilst the Candidate shall remain at all times the data controller with respect to the Candidate Data. The parties acknowledge that some Candidate Data will contain personal data.

4.7 For the purposes of this Agreement, TAD will seek to ensure that the Candidate Data is processed only in accordance with TAD’s Privacy Policy and in compliance with the Data Protection Law and otherwise as necessary to perform TAD’s obligations under this Agreement.

4.8 Many of the educational vacancies advertised on the Site are in countries which are located outside the European Economic Area (EEA). Some countries outside the EEA offer a lower standard of data protection than that which is available within the EEA. By submitting Candidate Data via the Site, the Candidate acknowledges that any Candidate Data may be transferred, stored and processed outside the EEA; however, TAD will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that all such Candidate Data is treated securely and in accordance with the Data Protection Law and TAD’s Privacy Policy.

4.9 Without prejudice to the provisions of Clauses 4.7 and 4.8, whilst TAD has put safeguards in place with Schools regarding the processing of Candidate Data, TAD is not responsible for and shall not be liable for the collection, usage and disclosure policies and practices (including the data security practices) of any Schools to whom any Candidate Data is disclosed via the Site.

4.10 The Candidate represents and warrants that where required to do so, it has obtained the necessary consents, permits and authorisations to enable the Candidate Data to be processed on the Candidate’s behalf and that the Candidate shall comply with the Data Protection Law with respect to the processing of the Candidate Data on its behalf.
