As an employer interested in our services we request you to accept and follow these Terms and Conditions below. These supplement our legal relationship in addition to the Terms and Conditions for Customer which you approved previously. In matters where the conditions of the current Terms and Conditions for Employer differ from the Terms and Conditions for Customer, the current Terms and Conditions for Employer shall prevail.
Jobbatical account and employer profile
In order to start using the Jobbatical services as an employer, you must first create an employer profile to your Jobbatical account. During this we request you to accept these Terms and Conditions.
You are allowed to create an employer profile to your Jobbatical account to use our relevant services provided that you are an active employer which is eligible to enter into legal contracts (including but not limited to employment contracts) independently pursuant to applicable jurisdiction.

Any representative acting on behalf of a legal person must have sufficient legal authorization to act in the name and on behalf of that legal person. For avoidance of doubt, in terms of employer services and the relevant rights and obligations pursuant to present Terms and Conditions the legal contracting party to Jobbatical is the employer (as person) that you represent.
In case a representative is acting for more than one employer, we may deem than any acceptance of the Terms and Conditions (including these Terms and Conditions for Employer) or a change to the Terms and Conditions is simultaneously given for all employers which the representative represents.
