The Application is offered by Equalture B.V., having its registered office at Haringvliet 76, Rotterdam (the Netherlands) and registered with the Dutch Chamber of Commerce under registration number 69620172 (‘Equalture’).

Article 1. Conclusion of agreement, applicability, duration and termination

  • By creating an account and using the Application, you conclude an agreement (‘the Agreement’) with Equalture under the conditions set forth in these Terms of Use. 
  • These Terms of Use are applicable to the use of the Application and the account, the entire registration process, the screening process, and other services of Equalture.
  • The Agreement is concluded when you create an account, and is entered into for an indefinite period of time.
  • You can terminate the Agreement at any time, without a notice period. 
  • You can terminate the Agreement by deleting your account.

Article 2. Registration and account   

  • Via the Application, you can create an account as a job applicant, to share and/or make available your previous experiences and results on the games to a potential employer. 
  • Equalture can change the login procedure and your login details if it deems this necessary for the functioning of the Application. Equalture will endeavour to inform you of this in advance. Since this is done in order to prevent (further) misuse, prior notification is not always possible. 
  • Messages regarding (your use of) the Application will, as much as possible, be sent to the e-mail address linked to your account.
  • Creating an account happens by sharing your email address with Equalture. In case you want to access Equalture for the same job or another job at a later moment, a verification token will be sent to your account, to ensure that the email address belongs to you.
  • Creating an account does not provide any guarantee of getting a job via the Application, or being invited for a job interview. 

Article 3. Division of responsibility

  • You are obliged to provide full, correct and up-to-date personal data when applying to a job opening through Equalture.
  • Equalture only fulfils an intermediary role between employee and employer, and is not a party to any labour agreement which you conclude (whether or not via the Application) with an employer. 

Article 4. Terms of use

  • It is forbidden to use the Application in a way which is contrary to these Terms of Use, or violates Dutch or other applicable legislation and/or regulations. It is expressly forbidden to use the Application in a manner which can cause nuisance or damage for Equalture or third parties. 
  • If Equalture discovers that you violate these Terms of Use or applicable law, or receives a complaint about this, Equalture may take measures to end the violation. Equalture will then block access to the relevant information. 
  • Equalture is at all times allowed to file a criminal complaint if it reasonably suspects that criminal offences are committed using the Application, and Equalture will provide its cooperation in case of legitimately given orders from governmental authorities. Equalture is allowed to provide your name, IP address and other identifying data to a third party alleging that you violate his rights or these Terms of Use, provided that: 
  1. it is sufficiently plausible that the information, in itself, is unlawful and harmful to the relevant third party; 
  2. the third party has a real interest in receiving the data;
  3. it is plausible that there is no less intrusive manner to receive the data; and
  4. the interests of the third party in receiving the data should prevail.

Article 5. Availability and maintenance

  • Equalture shall endeavour to keep the Application available as much as possible, but does not guarantee uninterrupted availability. 
  • Equalture shall actively maintain the Application. Maintenance will, as much as possible, be done at moments at which the use of the Application is relatively low. Emergency maintenance can take place at any time, and without prior announcement.  
  • If, according to Equalture, nuisance, damage or another danger occurs for the functioning of the systems or network of Equalture or third parties, in particular by accessing the Application an excessive number of times, leaking of (personal) data or malware or other damaging software, Equalture may take any measures which it reasonably deems necessary to end or avert such damage or danger. This may lead to restricted availability of the Application.

  • You have no right to access the source code of the Application, and it is expressly forbidden to retrieve the source code by reverse engineering, decompilation or otherwise, except when this is allowed under mandatory law.
