USER AGREEMENT

We welcome you to ReferHire.com and we appreciate you using our site. When you use our Products and Services, you are agreeing to our terms, so please take a few minutes to read the User Agreement below.
Please note that you are entering into a legally binding agreement.

1.  Introduction

Our mission is to make Hiring simpler and more effective. We are a social hiring site and our products and services are designed towards making professionals and companies connect with each other in the most transparent and productive manner.
  • 1.1  Agreement

    You agree that by clicking on “Sign Up” or similar, registering, accessing or using our Site, you are entering a legally binding agreement (even if you are using our Site on behalf of a company). Irrespective where you reside, your agreement is with CastleRed Internet Private Limited, India. Our Agreements may use CastleRed or ReferHire interchangeably but they refer to the same entity.
    This “Agreement” includes this User Agreement and the Privacy Policy may be amended by ReferHire from time to time. If you do not agree to this Agreement, do NOT click on “Sign Up” (or similar) and do not access or otherwise use any of our Product or Services (used interchangeably but will cover both).
    Registered users of our Services are “Members” and unregistered users are “Visitors”. This Agreement applies to both.

2.  Obligations

Here are some promises you make to us in this Agreement.
  • 2.1  Service Eligibility

    To use the Services, you agree that: (1) you must be the “Minimum Age” (defined below) or older; (2) you will only have one ReferHire account which must be in your real name; and (3) you are not already restricted by ReferHire from using the Services.
    “Minimum Age” means 16 years old for all countries. However, if law requires that you must be older in order for ReferHire to lawfully provide the Services to you (including the collection, storage and use of your information) then the Minimum Age is such older age. The Services are not for use by anyone under the age of 16.
  • 2.2  Your Membership

    As between you and others, your account belongs to you. You agree to: (1) try to choose a strong and secure password; (2) keep your password secure and confidential; (3) not transfer any part of your account (e.g., connections, postings) and (4) follow the law and the Dos and Don'ts below. You are responsible for anything that happens through your account unless you report misuse.
  • 2.3  Notices and Service Messages

    You agree that we may provide notices to you in the following ways: (1) a banner notice on the Service, or (2) an email sent to an address you provided, or (3) through other means including mobile number, telephone, or mail. You agree to keep your contact information up to date.
  • 2.4  Messages and Sharing

    Our Services allow messaging and sharing of information in many ways, such as your profile, job postings, job applications and messaging. Information and content that you share or post may be seen by other Members or, if public, by Visitors. Where we have made settings available, we will honour the choices you make about who can see content or information. Note that other activities, such as applying for a job or sending a Message, are by default private, only visible to the addressee(s). Your Contact and Private Info will only be visible to users who have taken the Recruiter Licence on ReferHire UNLESS you choose to share this information with another Member when you apply for a job.
    We are not obligated to publish any information or content on our Service and can remove it in our sole discretion, with or without notice.
  • 2.5  Awards

    When you post a job, we offer you the option of offering a financial award to candidates that encourages them to apply thru you, thus allowing you to earn any employee referral bonuses your Employer might offer. (For example, your Employer might have offered a referral or hiring bonus/service fee of USD 1000 and you choose to share USD 500 of this referral bonus/service fee with applicants, provided they get selected and meet your mentioned terms). Please note that this may be a legally binding agreement between the two parties according to the law of your Country.
    Similarly when you apply for a job and the job poster has offered an award, and in the event that the job poster does not honour his/her agreement, you may choose to pursue this legally according to the law of your Country.
    Please note that you understand and agree that ReferHire has no legal or financial obligation in such agreements and we are not an associated party to this. As such, you waive off all rights from pursuing a financial or material claim against CastleRed Internet Private Limited and our affiliates in all such scenarios.
  • 2.6  Hi’er Ratings

    A Hi’er rating represents your reputation as a Job Poster. It’s made up of comments and ratings from other job applicants whose applications you choose to accept for a job vacancy you advertise, irrespective of whether they are hired post the interview process or not. As a job poster, it is expected of you to help the applicants (whose applications you accept) with the necessary information on the vacancy and your company, and offer guidance on the interview process. The applicants will rate you on the overall help and information you extend as part of the application process.
    Please note that you understand and agree that ReferHire has no obligation in getting involved in this feedback mechanism, nor can we hide or delete any negative feedback you get from the other party.
