You acknowledge that by accessing the Website, you may come into contact with content that you find harmful, offensive, threatening, indecent or objectionable and you acknowledge that The Childcare Group shall have no liability to you for the content including, but not limited to explicit language and other potentially offensive material.

Users of the Website must not post User Content or information that is unlawful, fraudulent, discriminatory, threatening, abusive, libellous, defamatory, obscene or otherwise objectionable or that contains sexual, ethnic or racial or other discriminating slurs, or material which contains no relevant or constructive content, which goes beyond profanity into obscenity or abhorrence, or which is otherwise in violation of the law. Users are also prohibited from posting any User Content that contains proprietary information, trade secrets or confidential information. User Content may not contain any advertisements, solicitations, chain letters, pyramid schemes, investment opportunities, or other unsolicited commercial communication (except as otherwise expressly permitted by us), or encourage or cause spamming or flooding.

When you create a Career Site or post a job solicitation on The Childcare Group, whether part of the The Childcare Group Ads Programme or as a free posting, you agree that all of The Childcare Group’s terms, including the The Childcare Group Privacy and Cookie policies apply to you and to the applicants applying through such Sites or solicitations. You also agree that The Childcare Group shall utilise its The Childcare Group email relay function for such job solicitations and that applicants to those jobs and utilising such Career site shall apply through The Childcare Group. If you post a job solicitation on The Childcare Group with questions to applicants, you agree to be responsible for the content of such questions. You agree that The Childcare Group may reject or remove any job listing or any part of any Career Site or any screening question for any or no reason. You shall indemnify and defend The Childcare Group, its agents, affiliates, and licensors from any third party claim or liability (including without limitation reasonable legal fees) arising out of your posting a job on The Childcare Group, using screening questions, or creating a Career Site.

The job advertisements contained in The Childcare Group’s search results, or linked from those results, are created by people and companies over whom The Childcare Group exercises no control. You acknowledge that we have no control for the content of the job listings or other information posted therein. The Childcare Group’s job search results are indexed in an automated manner and The Childcare Group does not have any obligation to screen these jobs. The Childcare Group also does not promise to include any job in its search results and may exclude any job link for any reason or for no reason. We cannot confirm that users or employers are who they claim to be. The Childcare Group assumes no responsibility, and disclaims all liability, for the content, accuracy, completeness, legality, reliability, or availability of any job listing, information, or web site that is either included in The Childcare Group’s search results or linked to by the Website.

You are prohibited from posting any User Content containing official identification information (whether your own or of another person) on the Website, such as social security number, National Insurance number, passport number, national identification number, insurance number, driver’s licence number, immigration number, or any other similar number, code, or identifier. Posting such identification information may lead to identity theft and other adverse consequences. The Childcare Group may remove such numbers but does not undertake any obligation to do so and undertakes no responsibility and disclaims all liability for posting of such numbers.

Although The Childcare Group has no obligation to do so, The Childcare Group may monitor messages posted on the Website and reserves the right to delete any User Content or portion thereof which violate the above rules, messages, topics that are unrelated to the specific portion of the Website on which they are posted, advertisements, recruiting or other commercial messages, and any other User Content that The Childcare Group deems in its sole discretion is inappropriate. If you believe a message violates our policies, please us immediately so that we can consider its editing or removal. The Childcare Group does not promise to remove any User Content and interpretation of whether User Content violates any The Childcare Group policy always remains within the sole discretion of The Childcare Group.

The Childcare Group reserves the right to disclose all User Content and other relevant information and the circumstances surrounding their transmission to any third party in order to operate the Website properly; to protect itself, its partners and its visitors; and to comply with legal obligations or governmental requests. This means The Childcare Group may honour court-mandated requests to reveal a user’s electronic address and identity.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, The Childcare Group reserves the right (but are under no obligation) to remove any job listings that directly or indirectly discriminate against applicants. Direct discrimination means that a job listing specifically makes it clear that they only want applicants that match a certain criteria, thereby excluding others because of their gender, race, age or disability. Indirect discrimination means that a job listing implicitly excludes certain classes of applicants by making it impossible for them to qualify for the job requirements. You understand and agree that it is your responsibility to refrain from posting any job listings that contain direct or indirect discrimination.
