1. Use of the Platform

In exchange for you agreeing to comply with the terms of the EULA, we shall provide the Services and grant you a non-transferable, royalty-free, revocable licence to do the following (in each case subject to the terms of the EULA):

  1. access and use the Platform;
  2. create a profile;
  3. contribute and share User Material;
  4. download, store, print and share (on an ad-hoc basis through email) short extracts from the Platform Content; and
  5. communicate with other Users through the Platform.

The EULA sets out all your rights, and all other rights are reserved by us and/or our licensors. This EULA shall remain effective unless terminated by us or unless you breach any term (in which case the EULA and the licence under section 1.1 shall terminate automatically and your permission to use the Services and all other rights under this EULA will cease immediately).

The Services are provided by Nudge I.T. Limited, a company registered in England and Wales with company number 09341977, whose registered office is at Calder & Co, 16 Charles II Street, London, SW1Y 4NW, United Kingdom and trading as Nudj (“Nudj”). Any questions or concerns about this EULA or the Services should be sent to that address or emailed to hello@nudj.co.

2. The Services

Please note that the following definitions apply to this EULA:

  1. “Candidate” means a person who has created a profile on the Platform in order to find job opportunities, or a person who is contacted by a Referrer in respect of job opportunities.
  2. “Hirer” means any employer (or representative of any employer) using the Services as a means of recruitment.
  3. “Referral” means, subject always to Section 3.4 below, the passing of the name and a means of contact of a potential Candidate by a Referrer to a Hirer, (and the terms “Refer” and “Referred” shall be construed accordingly).
  4. “Referral Fee” means a sum of money agreed between the Referrer and the Hirer to be paid on a Successful Referral.
  5. “Referrer” means any person using the Services in order to make Referrals.
  6. “Successful Referral” means where a Hirer employs or engages a Candidate Referred to it in any role (whether or not the role posted to the Platform) within one year of the Referral of the Candidate to such Hirer by a Referrer.
  7. “Users” means all users of the Platform and / or Services including Hirers, Referrers and Candidates.

The Platform provides a platform for the Services by allowing a Hirer to post or communicate a job role, which can be viewed by Referrers. Referrers and Hirers are able to communicate via the Platform in relation to any job roles and Referrals. A Referral Fee will be payable by the Hirer to the Referrer via the nudj platform for any Successful Referral. The Hirer will set the level of the Referral Fee when posting the job opportunity, and a Referrer will be considered to have accepted the terms of that Referral Fee when making a Referral. 

There is no obligation on a Referrer to make a Referral. 

In the event that we have to contact you in relation to the Services, we may do so by posting a message on the Platform or by emailing or messaging you via text message at the email address and / or telephone number you provided on registration.

3. Using the Services

Nudj acts solely as a facilitator to connect Users. This means, for example, that Nudj does not vet the credentials of Candidates or Referrers, nor does it have any involvement in the decisions made by Users during the referral process.  Users are responsible for their own conduct when using the Services. In addition, Hirers and Referrers both have important obligations to ensure the effective operation of the Services, which are set out below.

Hirers shall ensure that: 

  1. the individual posting a job role to the Platform on behalf of the Hirer will have the necessary authority to do so.
  2. the job roles posted to the Platform or communicated to us or any other Users are genuine.
  3. where the Hirer continues to pursue a Candidate referred to it after any initial conversation with that Candidate, it will notify nudj within 2 days of making the further contact.
  4. where there is a Successful Referral, the Hirer will notify nudj promptly and within 5 days.
  5. nudj will invoice the Hirer on start date and the Hirer will pay any Referral Fee due within 30 days of the Candidate’s start date.
  6. if the Candidate leaves their new position within the first 30 days of employment the Hirer will be entitled to a 100% refund of the referral fee if nudj is informed within 5 days of the candidate leaving.
  7. where the Hirer is subject to laws and regulations in relation to the Services and / or as an employer or a potential employer, it will meet such laws and regulations when using the Services and when dealing with other Users.

Referrers shall ensure that:

  1. sound judgment is exercised when considering a potential Candidate and when making any Referral, so that the Candidate is only Referred if the Referrer considers them to be an appropriate fit for the particular role. 
  2. it complies with all applicable laws and regulations (including those relating to tax) relevant to its use of the Services and in dealing with any Referral Fees.

In the event that a Hirer reasonably believes it has received the details of any Candidate Referred to it by a Referrer in relation to the role in respect of which the Referral was made in the preceding 3 months prior to any purported Referral (and the Hirer can provide documentary evidence of the Hirer’s awareness of the Candidate in relation to that role) (an “Existing Referral”), the Hirer shall notify nudj that the Candidate is an Existing Referral within 10 working days of the date of the Referral by the Referrer (“Notification Deadline”) and no Referral Fee shall be payable in respect of such Referral by the Referrer. In the event that no notification is provided by the Hirer on or before the Notification Deadline, no Existing Referral shall be deemed to exist and the Hirer shall be obliged to pay the Referral Fee to the Referrer on the occurrence of a Successful Referral.

Hirers should note that non-payment of a Referral Fee will constitute a material breach of the EULA, entitling Nudj, at its option to (i) suspend the Hirer’s use of the Services and the Platform until such Referral Fee has been paid in full, and / or (ii) block the Hirer from using the Services and the Platform.
