You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of Your employer account, profile and passwords, as applicable. You may not share Your password or other account access information with any other party, temporarily or permanently, and You shall be responsible for all uses of Your Bounty Network Site registrations and passwords, whether or not authorized by You. You agree to immediately notify Bounty Network of any unauthorized use of Your employer account, profile, or passwords.
Employers are solely responsible for their postings on the Bounty Network Site. Bounty Network is not to be considered an employer with respect to Your use of the Bounty Network Site, nor shall it be held responsible for any employment decisions, for whatever reason, made by any entity posting jobs on any Bounty Network Site.
Cash Bounties are designed to incentivise users of the Bounty Network site to refer jobs to suitably qualified friends. Employers are solely responsible for allocating a Bounty to each job posting. A Bounty is payable to Bounty Network on the making of an offer of employment to a candidate who applied directly via the Bounty Network Site. Bounty Network will use this payment to make direct payment of 50% of the bounty fee to the user, who made the initial referral. Employers will receive 100% rebate should the contract be terminated by either the candidate or the employer within the first ten weeks of employment. Bounty Network will send employers an invoice on the making of an offer of employment by the employer to the candidate for the full Bounty and Finder’s Fee. All payments will be due within 28 days of receipt of invoice. If a payment is not made within 28 days of receipt of invoice, the employer is no longer entitled to the 100% ten week rebate.
You understand and acknowledge that if You cancel Your employer account, or Your employer account is terminated, all Your account information from Bounty Network, including job postings, will be marked as deleted and may be deleted from Bounty Network’s databases. Information may continue to be available for some period of time because of delays in propagating such deletion through Bounty Network’s web servers.

16. Scope of Bounty Network’s Obligations
Bounty Network will send on screened applications to relevant employers. In providing this service, Bounty Network will use reasonable endeavours to confirm that the work-seeker is willing to work in the position. Furthermore, Bounty Network will use reasonable endeavours to check the identity of the hirer and the nature of its business, the commencement date and duration of the position, the position to be filled (including the type of work, location, hours and risks to health and safety), experience, training, qualifications and authorisation which the hirer considers necessary or are required by law or otherwise to undertake the position, whether any expenses are payable by the work-seeker, or whether there are any requirements imposed by law or otherwise for a work-seeker to satisfy before taking up a position.
The Regulations seek to ensure that work-seekers are only proposed by Employment Agencies for roles for which they are properly qualified and that hirers are only offered work-seekers who have the appropriate levels of experience, training, qualifications and authorisation for the position to be filled. It is recommended that, if you are a work-seeker, you undertake the steps set out in the Regulations to ensure your suitability for the role advertised or, if you are a recruiter, to ensure a work-seeker’s suitability for the role. These could include:
1. If you are a work-seeker; checking the identity of the hirer and the nature of its business, the commencement date and duration of the position, the position to be filled including type of work, location, hours and risks to health and safety, experience, training, qualifications and authorisation which the hirer considers necessary or are required by law or otherwise to undertake the position, whether any expenses are payable by you as a work-seeker or whether there are any requirements imposed by law or otherwise for you to satisfy before taking up a position.
2. If you are a hirer; checking the identity of the work-seeker and that the work-seeker has the experience, training, qualifications and authorisation required by law or otherwise for the position, and whether there are any requirements imposed by law or otherwise for you, as the hirer, to meet to enable a work-seeker to take up a position.
In addition, where professional qualifications are required or where work-seekers are to work with vulnerable persons or children, you should obtain copies of the relevant qualifications or authorisation, obtain at least two references from people who are not relatives of the work-seeker, and undertake a criminal records bureau check of the work-seeker.
