TERMS AND CONDITIONS

In these terms and conditions, “we” “us” and “our” refers to CareerBeer.  Your access to and use of all information on this website including purchase of our service/s is provided subject to the following terms and conditions.  The information is intended for residents of Australia only.

We reserve the right to amend this Notice at any time and your use of the website following any amendments will represent your agreement to be bound by these terms and conditions as amended. We therefore recommend that each time you access our website you read these terms and conditions.

Disclaimers

Whilst we take all due care in providing our services, we do not provide any warranty either express or implied including without limitation warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. 

To the extent permitted by law, any condition or warranty which would otherwise be implied into these terms and conditions is excluded.  

We reserve the right to amend any aspect of our services, including but not limited to pricing, date, start time and location of events, at any time without prior notice.
If you have already booked an event we will notify you of any changes to time, date or location and give you an opportunity to transfer your booking to a different event. 

CareerBeer holds no responsibility for any actions between you and another person that you might meet through a CareerBeer event. 

By taking part in a CareerBeer Event you agree to release us from any liability, including but not limited to any actions of participants before, during or after the event. Additionally, you agree not to initiate any claims against CareerBeer resulting from either recruiting or social activities. We also take no responsibility for any loss you may suffer due to theft or damage to your belonging.

We also hold no responsibility for errors that may occur while matching selections or exchanging contact details, whether it was caused by us or our customers. However, we will try our best to correct any mistakes as soon as possible.

 

Our services

Our aim is to have the same amount of people, who are looking for work and looking for staff. Unfortunately, the final number of participants can be unpredictable, therefore we can’t guarantee an equal number of guests. However, should a significant imbalance of participating parties adversely affect your experience at a speed recruiting event or should you meet fewer than 7 employers/candidates, we will offer you a 50% discount for another event.

We’re allocating a generous amount of drinks to events that include free drinks, as outlined in the event description. However the selection and amount of included beverages will be to our sole discretion.

We also reserve the right to refuse to serve alcohol to anyone we consider to be intoxicated. 

 

Refunds

Setting up speed recruiting events takes a lot of time and planning. It’s important to balance the amount of people looking for work and looking for staff so everyone gets the most out of it. For that reason, we generally can’t offer a refund or credit for cancellation or non-attendance once a ticket has been purchased (unless your consumer guarantee rights, outlined further below, entitle you to a refund).

However, you may nominate another appropriate candidate to attend in your place, in which case you will need to contact us.

 

Postponed or cancelled events

As hard as we try to make every event happen, there might be unforeseen circumstances that require us to postpone or cancel an event.

Therefore, we reserve the right to postpone or cancel an event at any given time, and you will be notified as soon as possible via email or SMS. 

If we have to postpone an event, you will be notified with the new event details, and your booking will be transferred to the new date, unless you prefer to receive a refund. If you prefer to receive refund, you will need to contact us.

If we have to cancel an event, you will be entitled to a refund, or you can use the amount of your booking as a credit for another event. 

 

Disabilities

In general we welcome anyone who fits the job description of an event, but some of our venues might not be suitable for certain disabilities, such as those who require wheel chair access. Please contact us before booking an event to confirm that the venue is suitable for you. Once you have made a booking we can't offer a refund if the accessibility of the event or venue is not suitable to your needs.

 

Photographers at the event

We often take photos or film at our events for publicity purposes to use in our print materials, newsletters, advertisements and online. By booking an event you grant us permission to use images of you taken at the event for these publicity materials. 

However, we respect your privacy, so please let us know if you do not wish for your photo or video to be used for this purpose.

 

Inappropriate behaviour

Any inappropriate behaviour (such as harassing or insulting other guests) at our events will not be tolerated and we reserve the right to remove anyone at any time, who doesn’t conduct themselves in an appropriate manner. 

Persons removed from the event due to inappropriate behaviour are not entitled to a refund and may be banned from future events to our sole discretion.

b.    If we are a repairer of goods capable of retaining user-generated data then we hereby give you notice that the repair of those goods may result in the loss of the data.  

c.    If we are a repairer and our practice is to supply refurbished goods as an alternative to repairing your defective goods or to use refurbished parts in the repair, then we give you notice that the goods presented by you to us for repair may be replaced by refurbished goods of the same type rather than being repaired.  We also give you notice that we may use in the repair of your goods, refurbished parts.

 

Limitation of Liability
