You or a third party licensor, as appropriate, retain all patent, trademark and copyright to any User Content you submit to Uptic and you are responsible for protecting those rights, as appropriate.

Uptic may review and remove any User Content that, in its sole judgment, violates these Terms, violates applicable laws, rules or regulations, is abusive, disruptive, offensive or illegal, or violates the rights of, or harms or threatens the safety of, Users of any Uptic Site. Uptic reserves the right to expel Users and prevent their further access to the Uptic Site for violating the Terms or applicable laws, rules or regulations. Uptic may take any action with respect to User Content that it deems necessary or appropriate in its sole discretion if it believes that such User Content could create liability for Uptic, damage Uptic’s brand or public image, or cause Uptic to lose Users or (in whole or in part) the services of its ISPs or other suppliers.

5. Termination following infringement of the copyright or other intellectual property rights of others

Uptic respects the intellectual property of others, and we ask our Users and content partners to do the same. The unauthorized posting, reproduction, copying, distribution, modification, public display or public performance of copyrighted works constitutes infringement of the copyright owners rights. As a condition to Your use of the Uptic Site, You agree not to use any Uptic Site to infringe the intellectual property rights of others in any way. Uptic reserves the right to terminate the accounts of any Users, and block access to the Uptic Site of any Users who are repeat infringers of the copyrights, or other intellectual property rights, of others. Uptic reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to take these actions to limit access to the Site and/or terminate the accounts of any time, in our sole discretion Users who infringe any intellectual property rights of others, whether or not there is any repeat infringement, with or without notice, and without any liability to the User who is terminated or to the User whose access is blocked. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that You believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against You, please contact contact Uptic.

6. Uptic's liability

Uptic encourages You to keep a back-up copy of any of Your User Content. To the extent permitted by law, in no event shall Uptic be liable for the deletion, loss, or unauthorized modification of any User Content.

The Uptic Site acts as, among other things, a place for

  1. employers to post job opportunities and search for and evaluate job candidates and
  2. candidates to post CVs and Profiles and search for and evaluate job opportunities.

Uptic does not screen or censor any of this material. Uptic is not involved in, and does not control, the actual transaction between employers and candidates. As a result, Uptic is not responsible for User Content, the quality, safety or legality of the jobs or CVs posted, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of employers to offer job opportunities to candidates or the ability of candidates to fill job openings and Uptic makes no representations about any jobs, CVs or User Content on the Uptic Site.

While Uptic reserves the right in its sole discretion to remove User Content, job postings, CVs or other material from the Uptic Site from time to time, Uptic does not assume any obligation to do so and to the fullest extent permitted by law, disclaims any liability for failing to take any such action.

Note that there are risks, including but not limited to the risk of physical harm, of dealing with strangers, underage persons or people acting under false pretences.

By its very nature other people’s information may be offensive, harmful or inaccurate, and in some cases will be mislabelled or deceptively labelled. We expect that You will use caution and common sense when using the Uptic Site.

Because User authentication on the Internet is difficult, Uptic cannot and does not confirm that each User is who they claim to be. Because we do not and cannot be involved in User-to-User dealings or control the behaviour of participants on any Uptic Site, in the event that You have a dispute with one or more Users, You release Uptic (and our agents and employees) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential and direct and indirect) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes to the fullest extent permitted by law.
