1. Preamble
A. Reverse SpA, VAT Registration no. and Italian Tax Code: 09714690964 – Italian Index of Economic and Administrative Data no. MI – 2109818, Registered office Piazza Sigmund Freud, 1 20154 Milan (Italy).
B. The company owns the rights to the Reverse trademark (“Trademark”), to its related domain names and to the distinguishing signs that contain it (“Distinguishing signs”).
C. With the Trademark and the Distinguishing signs, the Company directly develops and runs a management system with an attached web platform accessible through the URL: (“Management System”) whose aim it is, for example: (i) to handle job openings; (ii) to engage in personnel recruitment activities (“Aim”).
D. The Cautionary Note sets forth the general regulations governing access and browsing activities on the Management System and pursuing the Aim, albeit accessible through the aforementioned URL. Unless other provisions are made, the Cautionary Note shall have validity and effectiveness for all Countries throughout the world.

2. Definitions
A. The expressions below written by agreement with a capital letter (both in the plural and singular form) shall have the following meaning:

-Privacy Policy: governs the privacy statement published on the Management System and relating to the processing of personal data (Candidate PrivacyClient PrivacyScout Privacy);
-Position: job opening advertised on the Management System and coming from a client, as defined below;
-Mandate: mandate bestowed upon a Scout (as defined below) by the Company and appointing said Scout to carry out specific activities with a view to achieving the Aim;
-Scout: an individual who meets specific requirements and, with a view to filling the Position, draws up a shortlist of suitable candidates, holds a conference-call interview (on Skype, for instance) in order to assess the candidate’s experience and then prepares a detailed report describing the candidate’s skills and abilities;
-Registered User: any natural person and user who has completed the registration process on the Management System and who has (amongst other things) a unique ID, one or more curricula (“CVs) and an email address. The User becomes a candidate when his/her CV is matched to a specific Position (“Candidate”): therefore, whilst the registered User may not necessarily qualify as a Candidate, a Candidate is always a registered User and the regulations envisaged for registered Users apply;
-Client: any party that avails itself, in the capacity of a buyer, of the services offered by the Company with particular reference to selecting and recruiting Candidates;
-Client-User: the natural person acting in the name and on behalf of the Client in order to obtain registration on the Management System and access to the reserved area for the Client, committing the Client for all legal intents and purposes. Upon registration on the Management System, the Company provides the Client-User with its authentication credentials (User ID and Password) which give access to the reserved area online containing the Client’s details (“Reserved Area”);
-Browser: any natural person who accesses the Management System, including any unauthenticated users;
-Participants: Scout, registered User, Candidate, Client, Client User, Company;
-Data: personal data of the Scouts, registered Users, Candidates, Clients and Browsers provided by themselves or gathered while they are browsing, in compliance with the contents of the Privacy Policy which is available for viewing on the Management System.

3. Aim and services
1. The Management system hosts a web platform meant for the provision of Services conducive to achieving the Aim (“Services”); said services include, by means of an example only, the following activities: publishing a Position, managing the selection and recruitment process and handling the interviews between candidates and Scouts or between candidates and clients.
2. Basically, as a result of the Services: (i) the Clients are allowed to access their reserved area so as to check how the Mandate bestowed upon the Company is progressing, but also to identify the most suitable Candidate(s); (ii) the registered Users can view the Positions and match a Profile to them (Curriculum Vitae), thus applying for the job that interests them.
3. Accessing the Management System, viewing the information and using the Service is free of charge and open to the registered Users and Candidates who can consult the Positions by means of a search engine and apply for jobs by registering on the Management System and uploading their CVs, not necessarily matching their CV to a specific Position. The Clients can use the Services at the conditions and using the methods covenanted with the Company.

4. Cross-references
1. Relations between the Participants are governed not only by the Cautionary Note but also by specific contractual documents, the provisions published in the reserved area accessible to all Participants and the conditions published on the Management System.
2. The regulations relating to privacy rights is set forth on the pages of the Management System. As it is anxious to provide the interested parties (with particular reference to the Candidates, registered Users, Clients and Scouts) with the broadest privacy guarantees, the Company has decided to base its privacy policy on the regulations set down by the European Union even though they may not be applicable in this particular case.

5. Access to the Management System
1. Without prejudice to the express agreements entered into with the Client and the Scout, the Company does not guarantee continuous and uninterrupted access to the Management System and to the Service which could be, amongst other things, affected by a series of different factors falling beyond its control. Access to the Management System could be suspended and/or interrupted at the Company’s discretion, for example, due to any manner of technical reasons, business decisions, the occurrence of unforeseeable circumstances or force-majeure events or breach of the Browser’s obligations which are listed here beneath; suspension and interruption will not, however, entitle the Browser to make any claims against the Company.
2. Again without prejudice to the express agreements entered into with the Client and the Scout, the Company will be entitled to make changes to the Management System and to the way Services are accessed at any given point in time, even if said changes give rise to a variation in the contents of the Services.

6. Obligations of the Browser
1. The Browser undertakes to access the Management System and use the Services in full compliance with mandatory rules of a civil, criminal and administrative nature (local, regional, national, community and international) and in particular, but without limitations, the Browser undertakes to observe regulations (i) on personal-data protection (ii) on copyrights and industrial property and (iii) aimed at counteracting computer related crimes (cybercrimes) as applicable from time to time.
1. Without detracting from the above and without limitation, the Browser undertakes: (i) not to use the Management System for illegal or illicit purposes or in ways that are contrary to public order, public decency and morality; (ii) not to use the Management System to send or divulge in any way material that is counter to the Aim or the spirit of the Services offered by the Company or material which is unlawful, illicit, pornographic, racist and/or in any way obscene, vulgar or defamatory; (iii) not to send material and/or messages that incites third parties to commit unlawful conduct and/or criminal activity that could incur criminal, civil or administrative liability; (iv) not to send commercial and/or promotional message, i.e. not to spam users, send chain letters or any other kind of illicit communications or communications which are contrary to the rules of netiquette; (v) not to infect the net or the computerised system supporting Provision of the Services with viruses, malware or other harmful software that might interfere with, damage, intercept or destroy goods and/or data or personal information, nor to use any kind of peer-to-peer programmes or anything else for the same purpose; (vi) not to engage in any activities that create an unreasonable burden or an overload on the Management System.

7. The extraneousness of the Company to the relationship between the Client and the Candidate
1. As the Company limits itself to creating a shortlist of suitable Candidates and to providing advisory services in order to identify the most suitable candidate, it cannot be considered to be part of the pre-contractual, contractual or post-contractual matters as regards any contracts concluded or not concluded between the Client and the Candidate who are the only parties bound by said contracts (for instance, due to non-fulfilment or a delay in fulfilment).

8. Information to be found on the Management System
1. Even though the Company strives to ensure that Browsers behave in a proper manner, it cannot provide guarantees as to (i) the identity, legal capacity, seriousness of purpose, good faith or other characteristics of the Browsers; (ii) the quality, legitimacy and truthfulness of the Positions advertised on the Management System (for which the Client shall be solely and wholly responsible) or of the CVs (for which the registered User and Candidate shall be solely and wholly responsible).
2. The Browser agrees that the information to be found on the Management System is merely indicative and acknowledges that no responsibility can be ascribed to the Company for any shortcomings, inaccuracies or omissions, unless explicit agreements have been reached between the Participants.

9. Links and malware
1. Even though the Company regularly checks the contents of the web pages linked to the Management System, it cannot be held responsible for the contents thereof.
2. Notwithstanding the regular checks run on the Management System, the Company cannot guarantee it is free from viruses or other potentially harmful programmes. Before accessing the net and engaging in any activities (especially, for instance, downloading documents and software), the Browser must take care to put in place the most up-to-date protection measures.

10. Industrial and intellectual property
1. The Browser accepts that the Trademarks and Distinguishing signs, contents, information, programmes, layouts, texts and databases used by the Company (as well as any technical, research-design and creative solutions) contained in the Management System and/or adopted by the Company in said System are covered by sole rights or are, in any case, owned exclusively by the Company.
2. The Browsers are strictly prohibited from making any use of the Management System which is not closely connected to the purposes and the Aim pursued by the Company and to the Services offered by it; by way of an example, this includes but is not restricted to the reproduction, sale, amendment, distribution, transmission, republication (including partially) of the contents, the information, programmes, layout, texts and databases made available on the Management System and on the Country Sites and of the technical, research-design and creative solutions adopted by the Company.
