  6. Taykon reserves the right to charge interest on any overdue invoice at the rate of 1% per calendar month, calculated daily on each day such invoice remains overdue.  Taykon may also disable the Advertiser’s account, or remove the Advertiser’s listings from any one or more Job Boards until such time as the overdue invoice and all applicable interest is paid.
  7. The Advertiser warrants that the advertisement submitted by the Advertiser for publication and the advertisement as published (in either case, the “Advertisement”):
    1. is in respect of a genuine position as described in the Advertisement and that this is the sole purpose of the Advertisement;
    2. is not misleading or deceptive to potential candidates or other persons.  In particular, the Advertiser warrants that the Advertisement and the Advertiser’s conduct in connection with the Advertisement is not liable to mislead persons seeking the employment as to the availability, nature, terms or conditions of, or any other matter relating to, the employment;

  1. Taykon reserves the right to refuse to publish any Advertisement or to remove any Advertisement where it has been brought to Taykon’ attention that there are reasonable grounds for suspecting that the Advertiser has breached any warranty contained in the Terms of Use.  The Advertiser acknowledges, however, that Taykon is not under any duty to vet the content of the Advertisement as submitted and that the Advertiser is solely responsible for such content.
  2. The Advertiser warrants that it has obtained all requisite internal approvals that may be required in connection with the Advertisement and the position that is the subject of the Advertisement before submitting an Advertisement to Taykon.

  8.

  4. The Candidate indemnifies and will keep Taykon indemnified from any claim, loss or liability arising directly or indirectly from any curriculum vitae or resume or other information submitted by or on behalf of the Candidate to an Advertiser (including, without limitation, where such claim, loss or liability is caused by any misleading information, material omission, fraudulent or negligent misstatement).
  5. Taykon reserves the right to disable the Candidate’s log-on if he or she is in breach of these the Terms of Use or is engaged in any conduct which Taykon reasonably considers may expose Taykon to liability or otherwise cause damage or harm to Taykon’ business.
