2. Services of TalentDoor
The services of TalentDoor are limited to:
- Operation of the Platform;
- Publication of information related to TalentDoor’s activities;
- Publication of Professional Profiles;
- Publication of Young Talent Profiles;
- Provision of administration tools:
- to enable Professionals and Young Talents to arrange discussions over the Platform and to exchange messages through the Platform.
- to allow HR Representatives (subject to appropriate data protection consents):
- to manage the Professionals in their team;
- to access Profiles of Young Talents and to contact Young Talents through the Platform.
Provision of 1) and 2) is dependent on the kind of contract the company has with TalentDoor.
TalentDoor acts exclusively as an intermediary between Professionals and Young Talents. TalentDoor is never a contracting party with either the Professional or the Young Talent.
Users create their own Profiles on the Platform, either as a Professional or as a Young Talent.
Each Professional and Young Talent undertakes not to make false or misleading statements and is fully responsible for what they choose to publish on their Profile. TalentDoor does not accept any liability for information provided by any Professional or Young Talent. TalentDoor may decline to publish or delete such information or part or all of a Profile at any time without having to provide a reason and without any liability.
A Professional’s Profile is included in the Platform’s List of Professionals and is visible to Young Talents, other Professionals and HR Representatives (but not to anyone else except TalentDoor).
A Young Talent’s Profile only becomes visible to Professionals to whom the Young Talent sends a request for a discussion and is not visible to anyone else other than HR Representatives and TalentDoor.
TalentDoor reserves the right to delete multiple Profiles which it reasonably believes are attributable to the same Young Talent or Professional, without giving advance notice.
A Young Talent has access to the List of Professionals and may contact a Professional directly through the Platform to request a discussion. The Professional may freely decide to accept or reject that request. If the Professional accepts it, he or she will from then on be connected to the Young Talent on TalentDoor, and the Professional and the Young Talent will be able to exchange private messages on the Platform through the integrated messaging system.
The Young Talent may at any time send appointment proposals (three to five date and time slots) to a Professional that he or she is connected to. The Professional can accept one of them or make another proposal of three to five date and time slots. The Young Talent can in turn accept one of the slots proposed by the Professional or make a new proposal.
The Professional is free to accept or decline any request for a discussion and the Professional and Young Talent will freely negotiate the terms on which the discussion will take place: date, time, duration and means of connecting (e.g. through the messaging system on TalentDoor, through an online audio or video call, through a phone call, in person, etc.). The Professional is not allowed to charge a fee to the Young Talent for the discussion or the information provided.
All Professionals on TalentDoor undertake to provide their services in a professional and timely manner.

6. HR Representatives
Each company that has a contract with TalentDoor can designate one or more of its employees as HR Representatives on the Platform. Depending on the contract the company has with TalentDoor, the HR Representative(s) are able to:
- Manage the team of Professionals of that company: invite company employees to create Profiles on TalentDoor as Professionals; remove employees as Professionals from the Platform; allow other members of the team to invite and remove members.
- View Profiles of Young Talents and contact Young Talents through the messaging system integrated in the Platform.
The role a User has on the Platform is determined by the membership that the User has. A User can only have one active membership on the Platform at any time.
Membership on TalentDoor is free for Young Talents. A Young Talent can delete his/her account on TalentDoor at any time.
Professionals’ membership on TalentDoor is regulated through the contract that TalentDoor has with their employer.
The HR Representative(s) of a company is/are responsible for inviting employees to join TalentDoor as Professionals and for revoking their Professional membership status if so desired.
The Professional and Young Talent each undertake to keep all topics discussed during their sessions confidential, unless otherwise agreed upon by both the Professional and Young Talent.

10. Data Protection
TalentDoor undertakes to process personal data of Users, in particular registration data, carefully and in accordance with the Swiss Data Protection Act.

The data protection policy of TalentDoor is an integral part of these GTC and is available at the following link: https://www.talent-door.com/privacy-policy.
11. Proper use
Users are responsible for the legal and contractual use of the Platform and must always comply with applicable laws, in particular criminal law, the Federal Act on Data Protection including implementing provisions, intangible property rights and any applicable foreign law during use. Each User is responsible for the confidential safeguarding of his or her login data and for all activities that are processed via his or her User account, and will prevent unauthorized third party access. All entries made via a User account are attributable to the respective User. The User is fully liable for misuse of his or her User account. Each User undertakes not to publish any illegal, offensive, discriminatory or pornographic content or content which violates another individual’s personal integrity or the principles of good faith and public order.
No User will cause damage to TalentDoor’s IT systems or those of its providers or third parties including by introduction or dissemination of computer viruses. No User will seek to gain access to another User’s information in an unauthorized manner or to modify or manipulate the content provided by another User.
12. Intellectual property rights
The software developed by TalentDoor as well as the entire content of the Platform including graphical elements, source code, design, browsing structure, databases, images, trademarks and logos (except for User data) is protected by copyright or other applicable intellectual property rights and is the property of either TalentDoor or third parties. It may not be copied, edited, distributed or otherwise modified without the express written consent of TalentDoor or the relevant third party.
13. Limitation of Liability
The following limitations of liability apply to the extent permitted by law.
The Profiles, publications and other content made available on the Platform by Professionals, Young Talents or other Users do not originate from TalentDoor. TalentDoor does not control the content and therefore does not accept any liability for the accuracy, legality, quality or suitability for specific purposes of such content. Content provided by TalentDoor is intended exclusively for general information purposes and TalentDoor does not provide any guarantee regarding its accuracy or completeness.
TalentDoor acts exclusively as an intermediary between Professionals and Young Talents and does not guarantee the competency, effectiveness or success of any services provided by a Professional. TalentDoor does not guarantee a minimum number of discussion requests that a Professional will receive or the nature or quality of such requests.
If the Young Talent is not satisfied with any matter relating to the interaction or communication with the Professional, any claims must be made by the Young Talent directly to the Professional and vice versa, and TalentDoor shall have no liability for such claims.
Although TalentDoor tries to maintain the operation of the Platform 24 hours a day, TalentDoor shall not be liable for the temporary unavailability of the Platform, the failure of any functionality on the Platform, or the non-delivery of requests or other communications.
TalentDoor reserves the right to amend, suspend or terminate all or part of its services at any time. TalentDoor shall inform the User of this promptly.
The transmission of data over the Internet is not completely secure. Although the Platform is SSL-encrypted to protect the transmitted content, TalentDoor cannot guarantee the security of the data. Any transmission of data is therefore at the User’s own risk.
In any case, any liability of TalentDoor is limited to unlawful intent or gross negligence. Liability for indirect or consequential damages (including loss of revenue and loss of data) is excluded.
14. Severability clause
Should any provision of these GTC be or become invalid or void, this shall not affect the remaining provisions of these GTC. Invalid or void provisions shall be replaced by provisions which are valid and come closest to the economic purpose of the invalid or void provision. The same procedure is to be followed if a contractual gap arises or if a provision proves to be impracticable.
The relationship between TalentDoor and any User shall be governed by substantive Swiss law excluding the conflict of law rules. The courts of Zurich, Switzerland, shall have exclusive jurisdiction to judge any dispute.
