CGPO2O Description Of Service
For Potential Employees
CGPO2O is an online service that connects Potential Employees with Employers through a non-binding interview request process for a Potential Employee’s services. Potential Employees have a confidential opportunity to find a position with an Employer with transparency as to role and compensation. Additionally, Potential Employees’ use of CGPO2O is free, and the process is non-binding and does not create any contractual obligations between the Employer and the Potential Employee. The service only acts as a tool for Potential Employees to explore opportunities without obligation. None of your personal contact details or name will be visible or made available unless you consent to have your information visible. If you are interested in referring your family and friends, you will have the opportunity to gain referral rewards in accordance with Referral Rewards Program Terms and Conditions.
In registering for an account on the Site, you agree to (1) provide true, accurate, current, and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Service registration form (“Registration Data”), and (2) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. You are responsible for all activities that occur under your account. If you provide any Content that is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, or CGPO2O has reasonable grounds to suspect that such Content is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, CGPO2O has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Site and/or Service. You agree not to create an account using a false identity or information, or on behalf of someone other than yourself. You agree that you shall not have more than one account. You agree not to create an account or use the Site or Service if you have been previously removed by CGPO2O, or if you have been previously banned from the Site or Service.
In order to use CGPO2O as a Potential Employee you must register and create a profile. The use of the Site and the Service is free for Potential Employees. When registering with CGPO2O, we may require you to provide us information such as your name, e-mail address, employment history, work experience, educational background and skill set. Furthermore, you agree to provide us with any other identifying documents that we may request. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to accept or reject your registration to use our Site and Service. If your registration is accepted, you will be allowed to use our Service.
Potential Employee’s Role
After you have registered and created a profile on CGPO2O, you agree not to attempt to circumvent our Site and Service by independently attempting to communicate with an Employer that contacted or communicated with him or her on our Site or Service.
You are fully aware of the essence of our Site and Service from Our Role; if your registration is accepted, you authorize us from then on until the termination of your account to store, use or provide to the third party, appropriately in our sole discretion, the personal information you upload or submit to us.
CGPO2O provides an online marketplace to allow for candidates to confidentially explore top opportunities in the market and companies to confidentially explore top talents for their important hiring needs. Once a company and candidate agree to interview, we then facilitate the entire offline process to insure both sides come to a satisfactory outcome.
Any agreements created between an Employer and a Potential Employee are not binding on us. We are not liable for, or obligated to enforce, any agreements between an Employer and a Potential Employee. You will not consider CGPO2O, nor will CGPO2O be construed as, a party to such transactions, whether or not CGPO2O receives some form of remuneration in connection with the transaction, and CGPO2O will not be liable for any costs or damages arising out of or related to such transaction.
No contractual obligations are created for either the Potential Employee or the Employer through the use of the Service.
For Potential Employees
Our Service is free for Potential Employees.
