7. ZIPPITY endeavors to avoid errors in advertisements it has agreed to upload onto the Site. However, ZIPPITY accepts no responsibility or liability for any errors and ZIPPITY requires that Advertisers inspect their job postings for faults as soon as they are loaded on the Site.

9. The Advertiser warrants and undertakes that:


a. it has the legal capability and power to freely enter into this agreement and perform its attached obligations;


b. all advertisements and any other works included in such advertisements, that are posted on the Site are not in contravention of the intellectual property rights of any third party;

10. Advertisers understand and agree to always treat any information or products provided by ZIPPITY or accessed from the Site in a manner which abides by all applicable laws of Australia, (including, but not limited to, copyright and privacy laws).


11. The Site may not be used to post any pyramid scheme, or related scheme thereof. Advertisers agree not to charge any job applicant any fee, cost, or charge whatsoever with anything in relation to any aspect of the advertisement posted on the Site.


12. Advertisers agree not to use any feature of the Site to send unsolicited commercial email. All communications using the tools provided on the Site may only be used for communication with the job candidate in relation to the specific advertisement to which they have inquired.


13. All the principles detailed in the RCSA's code of Practice must be adhered to by all Advertisers.


14. Advertisers must ensure that all advertisements posted to the Site comply with all applicable legislation, regulations, by-laws, ordinances and codes of conduct, including but not limited to the:


a. Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth), including but not limited to s.31 which requires that Advertisers that are companies not mislead persons seeking employment as to the availability, nature, terms or conditions or, any other matter relating to the employment opportunity being offered;

17. Advertisers understand and agree that ZIPPITY retains all intellectual property rights all goods and services provided by ZIPPITY to the Advertiser.


18. Advertisers understand and agree that ZIPPITY is merely a portal which individuals use to find employment. Although ZIPPITY may screen, assess, or evaluate, job candidates, the Z-Score function is to act merely as a guide as to what ZIPPITY measures the potential suitability of candidates as compared to the described requirements of a job. The Z-Score is an estimate and its accuracy depends solely on the information provided by applicants; be it from their profile and/or answers given to Screening Questions. Therefore, the Z-Score is to provide only a guide as to who to shortlist, and not to act as a guide as to who to employ. The function of the Screening Questions that ZIPPITY offers is to act again as a mere guide only as to the performance of individual applicants at that point in time in which they responded to those customized questions as made by the advertiser. The combined score and rank of those applicants in reference to the Screening Test questions is not to represent in anyway advice as to suitability for the role advertised. ZIPPITY disclaims all liability for any damage, loss, cost or loss of profits suffered in connection with employment of any job candidate found via the ZIPPITY Site.


19. Advertisers understand and agree that the following actions constitute a new/additional job advertisement under this agreement: copying a job ad; reposting an archived or deleted job ad; extending a job ad beyond 20 days (known as "renewing" and this can occur on multiple occasions); changing a zone classification and refreshing any job posting. Refreshing is the process of deleting and re-posting the same or substantially similar job advertisement. In addition, Advertisers understand and agree that when an Advertiser posts ads on ZIPPITY via a bulk data import process, changing a job ad reference number also constitutes a new job ad. If an Advertiser is using a bulk data import process, the Advertiser must ensure that they understand the effect bulk data importing may have on renewing (refer to definition above) ads as ZIPPITY will count all new/additional job advertisements against the Advertiser's account and will invoice the Advertiser accordingly. Changes to job ad body copy and ad title or location, work type, industry and occupation categories within the existing zone do not constitute a new job ad, regardless of the method used to post the ad.


20. Advertisers understand and agree only one job role is to be enlisted per advertisement. In the situation that more than one job role has been enlisted under the same advertisement, ZIPPITY retains the absolute right to charge the Advertiser for the quantity of job roles listed under that same advertisement posted on the Site.


21. Advertisers agree that pursuant to the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth), ZIPPITY may obtain from either a credit reporting agency or other credit providers:


a. personal credit information about the Advertiser and/or its directors for the purpose of assessing an Advertiser's commercial credit application; and


b. a consumer credit report about the Advertiser for the purpose of collecting overdue payments relating to commercial credit owed by the Advertiser.


22. Advertisers must ensure that advertisements posted to the Site are posted to the appropriate category of the Site and the onus is on Advertisers to ensure that they familiarise themselves with the advertising requirements of each available category on the Site to ensure appropriate placement of advertisements.


23. ZIPPITY reserves the absolute right and Advertisers understand and accept as a condition of advertising on the Site, that ZIPPITY has the right to re-classify any advertisement placed on the Site. ZIPPITY is entitled to move advertisements from one section of the Site to another (including but not limited to, withdrawing advertisements from one category of its Site and to re-publish advertisements in another category) without the need to seek prior approval or issue prior notice.


24. In providing the “candidate matching” (Z-Score) service, ZIPPITY makes it best efforts according to what it thinks reasonable to provide a “candidate matching” service that aims to be as accurate according to internally set standards. However, ZIPPITY accepts no responsibility for suitability or later performance of candidates it “matches” to the job advertised.


25. In the provision of “aptitude testing” (Screening Questions) functionality, ZIPPITY accepts no responsibility for the suitability of candidates and their respective scores as to the suitability for the job advertised. Again, ZIPPITY makes no recommendations as to employment when it presents the scores of each candidate to you, and you take sole responsibility for the way in which you evaluate the data and scores with regards to suitability of the candidate for the job advertised.


26. ZIPPITY reserves the right, without need to give prior notice, or seek approval, to at any time, modify the appearance and/or functionality of any products available from ZIPPITY or through the ZIPPITY Site, where it is the view of ZIPPITY that changes are needed to provide a coherent experience for job applicants, provide relevant ranking of job postings. Further ZIPPITY reserves the right to modify any part of any advertisement relating to its appearance, at any time, without the need to notify or seek approval.


27. Without ZIPPITY's prior written approval, all Advertisers must not release into the public any advertising, promotional material, news release, or any other form of publicity in connection to ZIPPITY.
