1. Subject matter

The exact scope of which and to what extent products can be used is defined in the Customer’s quotation, in the product description applicable upon contract conclusion, and in these T&Cs. The Customer will not be provided with the source code as onlyfy products are web services that access New Work SE’s server(s) and/or New Work SE’s service provider’s server(s). Certain free or paid accompanying services from New Work SE may also form part of the agreement.
  2. Certain limitations (e.g. on the number of messages which can be sent via the onlyfy TalentManager) and requirements are in place when it comes to using onlyfy 360+. Further details about this are available in the product description and in these T&Cs. The respective General Terms and Conditions applicable to the products included in onlyfy 360+ apply and are provided under https://www.xing.com/terms.

    - onlyfy one Job Ads Essential, Core, Pro & Ultimate or onlyfy Job Ads Essential, Core, Pro & Ultimate
  4. New Work SE makes the content, data and other information the Customer enters in onlyfy products available to third parties as long as it does not violate any legal regulations or these T&Cs, and as long as it is not improper, offensive to the general public or unacceptable for publication by New Work SE for other reasons. New Work SE is entitled to remove such content, data and other information without prior notice. Should this occur, the Customer is not entitled to any refund.
  5. New Work SE simply offers the Customer a platform to connect the Customer and third parties (XING members and other third parties) and for this purpose only provides technical applications that make it possible to establish general contact. New Work SE does not guarantee contact between the Customer and XING members or other third parties. New Work SE does not participate in the communication between the Customer and third parties in terms of content. New Work SE does not participate in any legal agreements that may be made through the onlyfy 360+ licence or XING and is therefore not a contractual partner. The Customer alone is responsible for the execution and fulfilment of any agreements made with third parties. New Work SE is not responsible in the event that no contact through onlyfy or the onlyfy 360+ licence is established between the Customer and the third party in connection with such an agreement. New Work SE is also not liable for any breaches of duty from the agreements made between the Customer and third parties.
  6. New Work SE accepts no responsibility for content, data or other information provided by XING members or other third parties, or for content on linked external websites.

2. Scope of use 

  1. BAny existing products the Customer has prior to using the onlyfy 360+ licence will be included in the onlyfy 360+ licence for the duration of the contract. Any unused service periods of products the Customer had prior to using the onlyfy 360+ licence will be offset pro rata against the onlyfy 360+ fee.
  2. The following also applies to use of the onlyfy Employer Branding Profile: The onlyfy 360+ licence includes onlyfy Employer Branding Profile Pro access for the Customer’s respective country, while additional onlyfy Employer Branding Profiles must be purchased separately by the Customer and subject to a separate contract.
  3. The following also applies to use of the onlyfy TalentManager: If the Customer’s onlyfy 360+ licence includes an environment offering an unlimited number of recruiter seats for the onlyfy TalentManager so HR and recruiting staff can actively engage in hiring activities for their company and, if required, a second environment for the Customer to engage in hiring activities for third parties, then the number of recruiter seats is calculated based on and limited to the number of people employed by the Customer as determined by New Work SE. New Work SE reserves the right to cease assigning recruiter seats to the Customer once the number of recruiters employed by the Customer and any contractually affiliated companies has been reached. If more seats are required, the Customer must provide New Work SE with proof.
  4. Any parts of products included in onlyfy 360+ that are booked but not used during the contractual term do not constitute grounds for reimbursement, a price reduction or extension of access beyond the given contractual term.
  5. The Customer acquires an onlyfy 360+ licence for itself or for an affiliate listed as the service recipient in the contract. Should any legally independent entities other than the named service recipient access this licence, they must be listed explicitly in the contract or in an annex.
  6. Under the terms of the agreement, only the Customer and staff employed directly by the Customer are permitted to use onlyfy 360+ and the products it contains. Unless otherwise agreed upon by contract, the Customer’s affiliates and their staff are not covered by the rights of use granted within the scope of the contract.

3. Functionality or general design changes

New Work SE reserves the right to make changes to the services related to onlyfy 360+ and its general design, or to offer alternative services, as long as this is not unreasonable for the Customer. The Customer understands that it is not entitled to claim more functionality than that which has been described.

 

4. Term of contract

  1. This agreement is initially effective for the initial contract term selected by the Customer. Thereafter, if it is not terminated by the deadline by the Customer or by New Work SE, the agreement will be renewed for 12 months at a time at the list price applicable at the time of renewal. If the Customer selects a product without a specific initial contract term, the agreement will run for an unlimited period of time. Discounts initially granted on a 360+ licence but not upon renewal do not constitute a price increase or grounds for extraordinary termination by the Customer.

The upgrade cost will be based on pricing and discounts applicable at the time of purchase. Any upgrade to the onlyfy 360+ licence is subject to a separate contract. Contractual downgrades are not possible within a contractual term, and retroactive discounts for products used will not be granted.

Agreements for products without a specific initial contract term can by terminated by either party with a notice period of three (3) months to the end of the month. This does not affect either party’s right to termination for cause.
  4. Terminations must be submitted in writing (e-mail, fax or letter sent by registered post).
  5. Following timely termination, the contractually agreed products and all of the content and information saved there may only continue to be used if a new onlyfy 360+ agreement is concluded and the start date for the new contractual term commences immediately at the end of the previous contractual term.

  3. The company is obliged, in particular, to observe applicable data protection and privacy law. Unless the affected XING members and third parties have granted their consent, and unless permitted by German and European data protection and privacy law, the company is prohibited from collecting, processing or using personal data pertaining to XING members or third parties via onlyfy 360+, and from passing on said data to third parties.

  2. Furthermore, the Customer will assume all reasonable costs (including legal-defence costs) that New Work SE may incur in the event that a third party initiates or takes legal action (in or out of court) against New Work SE as a result of the Customer's violation of rights, the Customer's violation of a contractually agreed obligation, or the Customer’s breach of pertinent data protection regulations.

The other party to the agreement can rely on the fact that these obligations are complied with. In such cases, liability is limited to typical and foreseeable damages.
  4. If the Parties’ liability is excluded or limited based on the aforementioned provisions, this shall also apply to the Parties’ vicarious agents.

    • If New Work SE terminates the agreement for cause
    • If New Work SE imposes one or more of the sanctions in accordance with Section 5.4, or
    • If the Customer terminates the agreement.
  3. The Customer’s entitlement to claim reimbursement of advance payments is not excluded, however, if the Customer terminates for cause attributable to New Work SE.
