Professional Networking Tool: A component of the website – additional Terms and Conditions
Bond TM's website offers a professional networking tool. It provides an online platform that connects crew who are looking for jobs with other crew, boat owners, agencies and potential employers seeking to recruit or employ or otherwise retain crew (on their own behalf or on behalf of others) to work on boats or in other roles related to the yachting industry (collectively, the “Services”), which Services are accessible at www.bondtm.com and any other websites through which Bond TM makes the Services available (collectively, the “Site”). By using the Site, you agree to comply with and be legally bound by the terms and conditions of these Terms of Service ("Terms"), whether or not you become a registered user of the Services. These Terms govern your access to and use of the Site and Services and all Collective Content (defined below), and constitute a binding legal agreement between you and Bond TM. If you do not agree to these Terms, you have no right to obtain information from or otherwise continue using the Site or Services. Failure to use the Site in accordance with these Terms may subject you to civil and criminal penalties.
The site and networking services comprise an online platform through which:
(a) crew who are seeking work in the yachting industry (“job seekers”) may create profile pages containing, among other things, their personal details, curriculum vitae, details of their work experience and qualifications; and
(b) other crew, boat owners, agencies and potential employers (“crew seekers”) may access their profile pages and contact them about job opportunities; and
(c) crew seekers may create profile pages (as above) and job listings which contain details of jobs for which they intend to recruit or employ or otherwise retain crew (on their own behalf or on behalf of others); and
(d) job seekers may access job listings and submit applications to crew seekers in respect of job listings.
You understand and agree that bond tm is not a party to any agreements entered into between job seekers and/or crew seekers and/or any other member and/or third party, nor is Bond TM an employer or employment agent. Bond TM has no control over the conduct of job seekers, crew seekers and other users of the site and services and disclaims all liability in this regard to the maximum extent permitted by law.
Certain areas of the Site (and your access to or use of certain aspects of the Services or Collective Content) may have different terms and conditions posted or may require you to agree with and accept additional terms and conditions. If there is a conflict between these Terms and terms and conditions posted for a specific area of the Site, Services, or Collective Content, the latter terms and conditions will take precedence with respect to your use of or access to that area of the Site, Services or Collective Content.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT, BY ACCESSING OR USING THE SITE OR SERVICES OR BY DOWNLOADING OR POSTING ANY CONTENT FROM OR ON THE SITE, YOU ARE INDICATING THAT YOU HAVE READ, AND THAT YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS, WHETHER OR NOT YOU HAVE REGISTERED WITH THE SITE. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, THEN YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO ACCESS OR USE THE SITE, SERVICES, OR COLLECTIVE CONTENT. If you accept or agree to these Terms on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that company or other legal entity to these Terms and, in such event, “you” and “your” will refer and apply to that company or other legal entity.
Bond TM reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify the Site or Services or to modify these Terms, including the Membership Options and Service Fees, at any time and without prior notice. If we modify these Terms, we will post the modification on the Site or provide you with notice of the modification. We will also update the “Last Updated Date” at the top of these Terms. By continuing to access or use the Site or Services after we have posted a modification on the Site or have provided you with notice of a modification, you are indicating that you agree to be bound by the modified Terms. If the modified Terms are not acceptable to you, your only recourse is to cease using the Site and Services.

How the Site and Services Work
The Site and Services can be used to facilitate networking between Job Seekers and Crew Seekers, and to connect Job Seekers with Crew Seekers who are seeking to recruit or employ or otherwise retain crew (on their own behalf or on behalf of others) to work on boats or in other roles related to the yachting industry. The profile pages of all Members and job listings posted by Crew Seekers are posted on the Site. You may view limited content as an unregistered visitor to the Site; however, if you wish to access and utilize the Services, you must first register to create a Bond TM Account (defined below).
Unless explicitly specified otherwise in the Bond TM platform, Bond TM’s responsibilities are limited to facilitating the availability of the Site and Services.
In order to access certain features of the Site, to create a profile page and/or job listing, and to contact other Members, you must register to create an account (“Bond TM Account”) and become a Member. You may register to join the Services directly via the Site or as described in this section.
We will create your Bond TM Account and your Bond TM Account profile page for your use of the Site based upon the personal information you provide to us. Further information about the creation of your profile page is set out below. You may not have more than one (1) active Bond TM Account. You agree to provide accurate, current and complete information during the registration process and to update such information to keep it accurate, current and complete. Bond TM reserves the right to suspend or terminate your Bond TM Account and your access to the Site and Services if any information provided during the registration process or thereafter proves to be inaccurate, not current or incomplete. You are responsible for safeguarding your password. You agree that you will not disclose your password to any third party and that you will take sole responsibility for any activities or actions under your Bond TM Account, whether or not you have authorized such activities or actions. You will immediately notify Bond TM of any unauthorized use of your Bond TM Account.
As a Member, you will be provided with a Bond TM profile page. So that we can create your profile page, we will ask you to provide certain information about yourself, including, but not limited to your personal details, contact details, work experience and qualifications. Your profile page will be made available via the Site and Services to other Members. Professional Members will be able to contact you via the Site and Services.
You acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for the content you post on your profile page.
As a Member, you will be able to create job listings. In order to create a job listing, you will be required to provide certain information about yourself and about the job in respect of which you seek to recruit or employ or otherwise retain crew. Your job listing will be made available via the Site and Services to other Members. Premium Members will be able to submit applications to you in respect of your job listing. You will be notified of such applications via the Site.
Please note that Bond TM assumes no responsibility for a Member’s compliance with any agreements with or duties to third parties, applicable laws, rules and regulations. Bond TM reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to remove or disable access to any profile page or job listing for any reason, including profile pages or job listings that Bond TM, in its sole discretion, considers to be objectionable for any reason, in violation of these Terms, or otherwise harmful to the Site or Services.
Bond TM does not endorse any Member or any job listing. Members are required by these Terms to provide accurate information, and we do not make any representations about, confirm, or endorse any Member or job listing, or the Member’s purported identity or background.
We therefore recommend that you always exercise due diligence and care when deciding whether to contact a Job Seeker or submit an application to a Crew Seeker, or to have any other interaction with any other Member.
By using the Site or Services, you agree that any legal remedy or liability that you seek to obtain for actions or omissions of other Members or other third parties will be limited to a claim against the particular Members or other third parties who caused you harm. You agree not to attempt to impose liability on or seek any legal remedy from Bond TM with respect to such actions or omissions.
