Advertising Terms of Use

  1. Overview These Terms and Conditions (Advertising Terms) apply to an Advertiser’s access or use of the Connexis Infrastructure Workforce Jobsite website, in addition to the general Terms here.  By accessing or using Jobsite you are deemed to have agreed to both sets of Terms, so please read them carefully.
  2. Who is an Advertiser In these Advertising Terms, an Advertiser means a person that:
    • has placed an advertisement (the relevant ad) on Jobsite;
    • has accessed the employer “List a Job” section of Jobsite;

    • has accessed Jobsite with a view to doing any of the above things, or has accessed or used any features of Jobsite or any of Connexis’ products or services offered through Jobsite.
  3. References In these Advertising Terms, “Connexis”, “we”, “us” and like terms means Infrastructure Industry Training Organisation Inc., trading as Connexis, the owner and provider of Jobsite, and “you” and like terms means you, the Advertiser.
  4. Changes to these Terms Connexis may modify these Advertising Terms at any time, and such modifications shall be effective immediately upon posting the modified Advertising Terms on Jobsite. By continuing to access and use Jobsite, you are deemed to have accepted the most recent Advertising Terms.
  5. Hardware access You must ensure that you have the necessary computer hardware and software systems in place to access and utilise Jobsite.

    • providing Connexis with the name and contact details of individuals authorised to access Jobsite on your behalf (Authorised Users);
    • maintaining the confidentiality of your Password and login name;
    • ensuring that all Authorised Users maintain the confidentiality of their Password and login name;
    • all activity occurring under your user account. This means you must:
      1. not allow anyone other than an Authorised User to access or use Jobsite using your login and Password;
      2. immediately notify us of any unauthorised use of your login or Password or any other breach of security.
  7. Responsibility for Authorised Users Any act or omission by an Authorised User in respect of the use of Jobsite that breaches these Advertising Terms or the general Terms will be deemed a breach of these Terms by you.
  8. Once Connexis has granted you access to Jobsite, you will have such access until you terminate your use of Jobsite, or your access is terminated by us in accordance with these Advertising Terms or the general Terms.
  9. Placing an Advertisement An Advertiser may post an Advertisement to Jobsite:
    • that is in respect of a genuine employment opportunity that is current as at the time of posting the Advertisement, and for which the Advertiser is currently recruiting (and we may request any information from you that we deem necessary to verify that a genuine employment opportunity exists)
    • that is for one vacancy only (if you include multiple vacancies in one Advertisement, we may change your advertisement to multiple advertisements.
    • in the correct category (you must ensure you are familiar with the description of, and details required for an Advertisement relating to, each category available on Jobsite);
    • by entering into each data field, only the information relevant to that data field;
    • that is for a location within New Zealand; and
    • that is valid for 30 days, or such shorter period as you choose.
  10. Content of Advertisement The Advertiser must ensure that an Advertisement:
    • complies with all applicable legislation, regulations, by-laws, ordinances and codes of conduct, including the Fair Trading Act 1986 and the Human Rights Act 1983;
    • does not promote or refer to brands other than those associated with the Advertiser within the details of the vacancy, within an employer/company profile or otherwise, without our written consent (which may be given or withheld at our discretion).
  11. Connexis’ right to alter Advertisements Connexis may take such steps as it deems necessary to correct any Advertisement that it considers does not meet the criteria in clause 9 or that breaches the requirements of clause 10, including by moving Advertisements from one category of Jobsite into another category, amending the information in any data fields, deleting any content or deleting the Advertisement entirely.  In addition, Connexis reserves the right in in its absolute discretion to reject or remove any Advertisement from Jobsite for any reason.
  12. What constitutes a new Advertisement A change to an Advertisement’s title, work type, categorisation, location or text does not constitute the posting of a new Advertisement. However, the following actions do constitute the posting of a new Advertisement
    • copying an Advertisement;
    • reposting an archived or deleted Advertisement;
    • extending an dvertisement, which adds 30 days to the life of the Advertisement; and
    • refreshing any Advertisement. Refreshing is the process of deleting and re-posting the same or substantially similar Advertisement.

  14.

  15. Misuse of candidates’ information Examples of the uses of candidate information prohibited by these Advertising Terms include:
    • selling or offering to sell services or products (such as learning or educational courses or tools) to candidates;
    • providing a candidate’s personal information to any other party (unless Connexis or the candidate has given written consent to your doing so). This restriction applies whether or not you receive payment for the candidate information.

    • immediately suspend or terminate your account;
    • immediately suspend or terminate the account of any party that has received candidate personal information from you;
    • report such misuse to the relevant authorities, including the Privacy Commissioner’s Office.
  17. Requests for personal information If Connexis receives a request from a candidate whose personal information you have received for access to or correction of that personal information, we will pass such request on to you. You must respond to such request in accordance with the Privacy Act 1993.
  18. Ownership of data All data stored on Jobsite on behalf of the Advertiser is owned by the Advertiser, and not Connexis.

  25. Survival of terms Termination of our agreement with you as a result of you breaching any one or more of these Terms, will not end provisions of these Terms that are capable of surviving termination.
  26. No assignment without consent You may not assign or transfer any rights and obligations pursuant to these Advertising Terms to any other person or entity without our prior written approval (which will not be unreasonably withheld). If you are a company, any change in your effective control shall be deemed an assignment for the purpose of this clause.
