At Edvo Inc., we provide individuals seeking employment opportunities with access to relevant open positions with third-party employers (herein defined as “Employers”), training, and other placement and employment related educational services. In our capacity as an external advisor for different Employers, we provide various advisory and employee placement services, as well as other human resource management tools.
When we use the terms “we”, “us”, “our” or “Edvo”, we refer to Edvo Inc., and when we use the terms “you”, “your” or “yours” we refer to you, an Employer seeking to fill an employment or service provider position (herein: “Open Position”), with a potential candidate (herein: “Candidate” or “Candidates”).
These Terms and Conditions (the “Terms”) are a legally binding agreement between you and us. As part of these Terms, you agree to our Data Protection Agreement, which is incorporated by reference into these Terms. We may revise these Terms or our Data Protection Agreement at any time, by publishing revised versions on our Website. Each time you access or use the Services after being notified of a change to these Terms or our Data Protection Agreement, you are confirming that you have read, understand and agree to be bound thereby. Since these Terms are binding upon you, we recommend you read through and become thoroughly familiar with each such amendment. If you are acting on behalf of an entity, these Terms constitute a binding agreement between Edvo and that entity, and you acknowledge, warrant and represent that you have the legal authority to bind such entity and its affiliates to these Terms. In such event, the terms “you”, “your” or “yours” shall mean you personally and/or the entity on whose behalf you are acting.
The Services (as such term is defined below) we provide to you, are being furnished via our website, directly and over multiple virtual methods or media, including communication and interaction with you through skype, Facebook, via telephone, using internet groups, through social media channels, email, text or any other medium (as applicable). All communication between you and Edvo, regardless of the medium used, are subject to these Terms. We refer to all of the e-communication media described above, as “Media”.
Subject to the terms of these Terms, Edvo will, from time to time and in its discretion, provide you with filtered information and data (the “Data”) regarding potential Candidates to be considered for one or more specific Open Positions (the “Services”).
To receive the Services, you shall be required to submit information regarding each Open Position, using our designated webpage. In order to provide the Services, we may need to perform one or more of the following tasks with respect to each Open Position: (i) conduct interviews with the relevant hiring managers and human-resource staff in your organization, and define, together with such relevant persons, the initial role description of such Open Position; (ii) create and deploy applicable automated assessment tests for the Open Position over several third-party platforms we use (e.g. Facebook) and using our proprietary software (the “Assessment Tests”); (iii) publish the Open Position in the relevant third-parties hiring platforms we use, to collect Candidates (the “Hiring Platforms”), and thereafter, filter the relevant resumes submitted for such Open Position and invite the relevant Candidates to undergo an Assessment Test; and (iv) with respect to each relevant Candidate, generate applicable profile summary, which includes non-binding evaluation regarding each Candidate and additional details we deem to be reasonably required (the “Candidate Profile”).
Our process prioritizes Employers that provide quick responses and is optimized better when feedback is provided. This will require you to do all of the following, as promptly as possible: (i) review the Candidate Profile provided to you; (ii) provide us with timely feedback regarding potential suitability to the Open Position; (iii) attend all scheduled interviews with minimum rescheduling; (iv) flag Candidate Profiles to our appropriate hiring managers and interviewers, ahead of any interview or interaction; and (vi) keep interview cycles as short and effective as possible and always provide the Candidate with feedback and final resolution with respect to his/her application.
You are not obligated to provide access to your hiring managers and human-resource teams, nor are you obligated to provide the above information, feedback or assistance. However, if all or part of such access, information, feedback and/or assistance were denied, it may have adverse effect on our ability to provide the Services.
If you have resolved to engage any Candidate, you undertake to provide Edvo with information regarding any offer letter provided by you or on your behalf to the Candidate (including his/her salary and other benefits).
Edvo may, from time to time, offer to you to participate and take part in sessions, events, photoshoots, video sessions, live video streams, audio recordings, podcasts, blog interviews and/or other documented activities conducted by Edvo and/or its contractors and/or affiliates (including any events co-hosted by Edvo), and/or to contribute similar materials which you or persons on your behalf have created or received (herein collectively, the “Contributed Materials”). For removal of any doubt, Contributed Materials may include, without limitation, your writings, photographs or videos of you and/or your working environment, logos or trademarks you use or own, recordings of your voice, and/or written materials. For clarity, “you” means you or anyone related to you, including your shareholders, directors, officers, employees, service providers, contractors, clients and/or affiliates.
It is your choice whether to participate in any activities in which Contributed Materials will be created by Edvo and its contractors or affiliates, and/or to contribute to Edvo any Contributed Materials you have created or received license to use. In the event that you choose to accept Edvo’s offer to participate in the creation of, or to contribute, any Contributed Materials, you represent to Edvo that (i) you have obtained any and all necessary consents and releases from any applicable employee and/or third-party photographed or recorded in the Contributed Materials, and have made so in compliance with any applicable law (including any privacy law), (ii) you agree, and have obtained the consent of the foregoing, that Edvo may use and exploit the Contributed Materials and for various purposes, including, but not limited to, to promote Edvo the Services, to promote any Open Position you wish to fill, and for any other reason or purpose, and (iii) you understand and agree that Edvo may also publish, post, repost, use, alter, modify or take any other action in connection with the Contributed Materials. To the extent required by any applicable law, you hereby irrevocably and unconditionally give Edvo the right to exploit the Contributed Materials in accordance with the foregoing.
You may use the Services for the sole purpose of locating applicable Candidates for your Open Positions. You may not use the Services to locate Candidates for any third-party. Edvo reserves all other rights.

COMPLIANCE WITH THIRD-PARTIES TERMS

Edvo facilitates such Media and infrastructure through user accounts, designated APIs and SDKs to run, present, maintain and make the Services available (collectively, “Third-Party Providers”). Before you login and exploit the Media and infrastructure to use the Services, several Third-Party Providers will request your consent and agreement to Third-Party Policies. You must provide such acceptance before you use the Services and you must always comply with the terms of such Third-Party Policies. Edvo is not responsible for the content of such Third-Party Policies, or for the compliance of such Third-Party Providers with any law or regulation. Edvo is also not responsible for how these Third-Party Providers use your information.

These Terms do not convey to you an interest in or to the Services, but only a limited right of use of the Services, revocable in accordance with the terms and conditions of these Terms. Nothing in these Terms constitutes a waiver on behalf of Edvo of any Intellectual Property Right.
EDVO MAY RECORD ANY AND ALL CORRESPONDENCE BETWEEN EDVO AND YOU.

EDVO FEES; PAYMENT
Currently, Edvo charges no fees with respect to the Services. This may change in the future, and in such event – these Terms will be amended.
You should be aware, that Edvo may (in its sole and absolute discretion) charge Candidates for services rendered to them, including, and without limitation, if such Candidates are placed with you.
If Edvo believes that you are making unauthorized use of the Services or that you are otherwise in violation of these Terms, it may suspend or terminate your access to Services, with or without notice, and without derogating from its rights herein or under law.
