Access to public areas of the Portal is made available free of charge. Individual membership is available free of charge.
We do not guarantee that the Site, or any content on it, will always be available or be uninterrupted. We may suspend, withdraw, discontinue or change all or any part of Site without notice. We will not be liable to you if for any reason the Site is unavailable at any time or for any period.
We may update the Site from time to time and may change the content at any time to meet the development needs of the business and any requests from the community.
Other Members may update their Member profiles on the Site from time to time. However, please note that any of the content on any Member’s profile may be out of date at any given time.
We do not guarantee that the Site, or any content on it, will be free from errors or omissions.
You are responsible for configuring your information technology, computer programmes and platform in order to access the Site. You should use your own virus protection software.
You are also responsible for ensuring that all persons who access the Site through your internet connection are aware of these Terms and other applicable terms and conditions, and that they comply with them.
5. Reliance on information
The content on the Site is provided for general information only. It is not intended to amount to advice on which you should rely. You must obtain professional or specialist advice before taking, or refraining from, any action on the basis of the content on the Site.
Although we make reasonable efforts to update the information on the Site, we make no representations, warranties or guarantees, whether express or implied, that the content on the Site is accurate, complete or up to date.
If you order any Services from us, such Order is subject to acceptance by us.
We will supply the Services to you from the date set out in the Order for the period of time set out in the Order.
We will make every effort to complete the Services on time. However, any such dates shall be estimates only and time for performance by us shall not be of the essence of these Terms.
We may need certain information from you that is necessary for us to provide the Services. We will contact you in writing about this. We will not be liable for any delay or non-performance where you have not provided this information to us after we have asked.
We may have to suspend the Services if we have to deal with technical problems. We will contact you to let you know in advance where this occurs, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency.
The price of the Services will be set out in the Order. Our prices may change at any time, but price changes will not affect Orders that we have confirmed with you.
While we may send you an automatic email confirming receipt of an Order, this does not amount to acceptance of such Order. Acceptance does not occur (and therefore an Order is not binding on us) until is it expressly accepted by us.
It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Services may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices as part of our Order confirmation process so that, where the Services’ correct price is more or less than our stated price, we will contact you to tell you and for your instructions. If the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Services to you at the incorrect price.
The ONEDECOM services also offers the option to “sponsor” or “feature” any of ONEDECOM listing services e.g. (“Sponsored Jobs, Featured Companies”), which, for an additional fee, will secure upgraded placement of the listing on certain ONEDECOM pages. ONEDECOM will otherwise determine the size, placement and positioning of your Postings. ONEDECOM will serve your listings as inventory becomes available on the Portal.
The ONEDECOM services also offers the option for ONEDECOM to provide a “managed project service” where ONEDECOM will manually upload all of your project or project scope information for you. The data must be provided in a format that is representative of the various project and project scope fields. ONEDECOM reserve the right to change or amend any data provided to align with the project or project scope fields in the listings. On completion of data upload, ONEDECOM will notify the member of the listings on the portal. All changes and amendments required must be notified to ONEDECOM within two working days in order for any changes to be made. Upon completion of the notification period, this constitutes completion of this service and any changes thereafter must be carried out by the member, unless further “manage project services” are requested. The “managed project service” is limited to one main project or one main project scope.
The ONEDECOM service also offers the option to “manage company” or “manage project”. Where any data is listed on the portal that has this field on the listing it indicates that the data is not being managed by an individual or company. If you the member are associated to the “company” or “project” and wish to manage any of the listings, you will require further approval by ONEDECOM. You request will be verified to authenticate the information provided and we may be in contact for further information. Upon ONEDECOM approving the “manage company” or “manage project”, the user must have the required company plan to manage the project and / or scope. ONEDECOM will make contact with the member to ensure the company plan is in place. Where this company plan is not ordered, ONEDECOM reserve the right to cancel the request.
