TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THE BARONA’S JELPP SERVICE
Welcome to the Barona Oy’s (hereafter “Service Provider” or “we”) online recruitment service Jelpp-career service (hereafter “Service”). The following terms and conditions (hereafter “Terms”) apply to the Service. The user should review the Terms carefully before using the Service. By clicking the box referring to these Terms in connection with the registration process, a binding contract (hereafter “Agreement”) is formed between the user (hereafter “User”) and the Service Provider, and the Agreement enters into force after the Service Provider has accepted the User’s registration. If the Service Provider refuses to issue access rights to a User applying for registration, this Agreement, or any parts thereof, will not enter into force.
These Terms apply to the online recruitment service maintained by the Service Provider. The Service enables the User to create his/her employee profile, search for job vacancies and submit job applications. When a new User registers to the Service, he or she creates a user account for Barona’s main userbase. With personal user credentials, Users can manage their profile information in the Service. If a person is later employed by Barona, new services such as intranet or working time management can be activated for the User’s account.
User data entered into the Service is available for Barona Group Companies and, in certain specific cases described in our Privacy Statement, to the Service Provider’s customers (e.g. potential employer seeking for suitable candidates). Such customers have concluded separate agreements with the Service Provider.
The User is entitled to use the Service for lawful and appropriate purposes in accordance with these Terms.
2 REGISTRATION AS A USER
Persons who are at least 15 years of age and are acting in the capacity of a consumer may register to the Service as Users. Persons under 15 years of age are not allowed to register or use the Service. Registration requires the User to have a valid e-mail address in order to complete the registration. In connection with the registration, the User must submit all of the information that is marked as obligatory.
Registration to the Service must be carried out personally by the User and shall not be done by providing identification details or personal data of any other person. The membership and user account that will be granted after the registration are personal and cannot be transferred.
In conjunction with the registration, the User will be provided with a personal user ID and password, which the User must keep secret. Furthermore, the User must not allow a third party to use the User’s user ID and password. The User is responsible for all actions performed using the User’s account or user ID. The User must immediately notify the Service Provider if the User suspects that a third party has gained access to the User’s account, user ID or password.
The User is responsible for providing accurate information and keeping the information up to date. The User must communicate any changes in the User’s information to the Service Provider without delay, by updating his or her profile in the Service.
The Service Provider reserves the right to limit or cancel the User’s access rights, or suspend the access to the Service, at any time if the Service Provider suspects that the User’s user ID or password have been disclosed to a third party or there is another suspicion relating to unauthorized access to the User’s account.

5 DATA PROTECTION
Due to the nature of the Service, the User is obliged to provide certain basic personal data, such as e-mail address and contact details, in order to register to and use the Service. The personal data the User provides when registering to and using the Service is processed in compliance with applicable laws. The legal basis of the processing is the agreement between the data subject and the Service Provider. For more information about how the Service Provider processes personal data, please see our Privacy Statement.
If the User selects that his/her personal data will be available to the Service Provider’s customers (e.g. potential employers using the Service), the personal data are stored and processed by such customers and are subject to their privacy policies. Personal data will be transferred to the Service Provider’s customers solely in case the User has explicitly accepted the transfer e.g. by applying for a job offered by a certain customer.
6 TERMINATION OF AGREEMENT
The User may terminate the membership and delete the User’s account in the Service by signing in to the Service with the User’s personal user credentials or by contacting the Service Provider’s customer service at email@example.com, and requesting the cancellation of the User’s account. The Service Provider is entitled to maintain the membership and the User’s account and process the User’s personal data for at least as long as a relevant connection continues to exist between the parties and for a reasonable time thereafter. More information regarding the storage and processing of personal data after the termination of the membership and the deletion of the User’s account can be found in the Service Provider’s Privacy Statement.
The Service Provider may terminate the membership and delete the User’s account by notifying the User of the termination and its effective date. As a rule, the effective date cannot be earlier than seven days from the date of sending the notification of the termination. For a justified reason, the Service Provider may terminate the membership immediately without first sending the User notification of the termination.
7 EFFECTS OF TERMINATION OF AGREEMENT
Should the Agreement be terminated for any reason, the User’s right to use the Service and the related user ID and password ceases to exist, and the user credentials are withdrawn. In spite of the termination of the Agreement, any rights, obligations and responsibilities of the parties that are based on the Terms and continue to be relevant after the termination of the membership, such as the liability for damages, will remain valid.
The User understands and accepts that the Service Provider is entitled to discard and delete all information pertaining to the User as well as the material produced and submitted by the User to the Service upon termination of the Agreement. The Service Provider is not obliged to return said material to the User. The User is responsible for making any necessary back-up copies of the material. The Service Provider is not responsible for the effects of the removal, loss or alteration of any of the User’s material.
8 AMENDMENT AND TRANSFER OF AGREEMENT
The Service Provider reserves the right to amend these Terms unilaterally by notifying the User of any amendments on the relevant website, via the Service or by e-mail. The Service Provider seeks to notify the User of amendments to the Terms as early as possible. The amendments enter into force fourteen (14) days after notification. The User is deemed to have accepted the amendments to the Agreement if the User uses the Service after the notification. After the notification relating to the amendments, the User may terminate the Agreement to end before the amendments enter into force.
The Service Provider has the right to transfer the Agreement to a company within the same group of companies and, in conjunction with acquisitions, to the company acquiring the Service Provider’s business operations. The User is not entitled to transfer the Agreement.
9 FORCE MAJEURE
The Service Provider is not responsible for delays or faults caused by circumstances beyond the Service Provider’s control (force majeure). In case of delays, the Service Provider will resume its obligations as soon as possible under the particular circumstances.
