Terms of Service

Welcome to Double AB (called “Double” below) Terms of Service (“Terms”) page. These Terms govern your access to and use of our services (“Services”). By using the Services you agree to be bound by these Terms. You may use the Services only if you agree to the Terms and you must be at least 16 years of age.

Privacy

Our Privacy Policy describes how we handle the information you provide to us when you use our Services. Through your use of the Services you consent to the collection and use of this information.

Account

You need to create a personal account to use the Services. It is free to sign up for an account with limited features. You can later add more features by subscribing to paid services on your account.

By creating a personal account you will be asked to create a “Profile” of yourself. The goal of the profile is to provide other users with an easy and clear representation of you. Your profile is public and will be used to apply for jobs though our Services. You are free to use your Profile to apply for jobs outside of our Services as well by providing a link to it.

You can also connect a company, organization, government, or other legal entity (“Entity”) to your personal account if you represent that Entity. This will allow you to promote the Entity through our Services, post jobs associated with the Entity and invite other users/colleagues that work at that Entity to also modify the Entity. To connect an Entity, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to do so and have the authority to bind such Entity to these Terms. The Entity and all associated jobs are public and can be advertised and promoted by Double in all types of media. Double reserves the right to deny and remove an Entity from Double’s Services if Double believes that the Entity does not meet our criteria or does not fit into our range of services or offers.

You are responsible for all activities in your account and for safeguarding it through a strong password. You undertake to notify us immediately if you become aware of any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security that you become aware of.

You are not permitted to transfer ownership of your personal account.

Content

You are responsible for the content you provide to the Services and you should only provide content that is truthful and that you are comfortable sharing with others. Your content must be in compliance with applicable laws, rules, and regulations. Your content is your own sole responsibility.

You must have obtained all rights, consents, permissions, power and/or authority necessary to use the content that you post to our Services.

Any content posted via your account, to your personal profile or connected entities is treated as public.

By posting your content through our services you grant us the right to use, process, modify and display the content publicly to provide our services in the best way possible.

We reserve the right to remove content that violates the Terms, including copyright or trademark violations or other intellectual property misappropriation, impersonation, unlawful conduct, or harassment. You undertake to indemnify Double, for any damages that may arise due to the content that you post on our Services.

Job applications

Your personal job applications will only be visible to the Entity that you are applying to and to staff working for Double.

Referrer

Anyone with a personal account at Double can become a referrer ("Referrer"). This is an optional service offered by Double to all its users. A Referrer is someone that refers people to apply for jobs where the jobs are connected to referral programs. By using Double’s links or invitation forms to refer people to apply for a job, you are referred to as a Referrer and agree to these terms and conditions. The service is free of charge to the Referrer. Bank and transfer fees of payments to the Referrer may apply in association with third parties.

As a Referrer, you work independently for yourself to refer candidates for jobs listed on DoubleCloud. As a Referrer, you are not employed by DoubleCloud and you can therefore not present yourself as working at DoubleCloud or to have any form of title at DoubleCloud.

Each referral program is connected to a job and an Entity behind the job. The Entity is responsible for qualifying and hiring the job applicants that apply to the job. The Entity is also responsible to pay for the referral program as agreed upon if a job applicant is hired. The Entity is not obligated to have to hire any of the job applicants if the Entity considers them inappropriate for whatever reason. Double acts as an intermediary platform that serves both the Entity and the Referrer through its Services.

Referral programs offer a commission if a referred job applicant gets hired for that job. The commission that a Referrer can earn is displayed on each job. The commission can change during the referral programs lifetime based on market situations. Commission that is earned by a Referrer and paid by the Entity to Double is then paid to the Referrer by Double on a scheduled date displayed in the Referrers account.

A Referrer is not an employee at Double and has no right to a period of notice, holiday pay or other remuneration.

Referrers can promote jobs that are published on Double’s Services. The Referrer aims to promote the jobs toward talented candidates that are suited for the jobs. Promoting jobs must be done in a professional way and in professional channels that obey the terms and conditions of those channels. Channels can for example be social media platforms, websites, blogs, apps, newsletters, videos and more (called "Channels" below). The Referrer is not allowed to modify any images or videos that are obtained from Double’s Services.

Referrers bear the sole responsibility for where and in what context Referrers promote jobs from Double’s Services. The Referrer should not publish any jobs or content on Channels that can be deemed as not suited for that job or the Entity behind the job. The Referrer must also not publish any jobs or content from Double’s Services on any Channel that may contain any form of pornography, violence, offensive or unlawful content. If a Referrer promotes Double’s jobs or content on a personal Channel then the Referrer guarantees that no information or representations on this Channel has led to the infringement of any physical or legal person’s rights, including but not limited to, intellectual property rights, and that such information and representations are not offensive, unlawful or can be questioned in any other way. Double reserves the right to at any time block and remove a Referrers personal account if Double believes that the Referrer has promoted Double’s jobs or content in an unsuitable way or on Channel that do not align with Double’s terms and conditions. In such an event, any available funds on that account will be frozen and not paid to the Referrer.

The Referrer is not allowed to force anyone to apply for a job in order to earn the referral programs commission.

Double AB is a Swedish company and therefore complies with Swedish law and tax rules. All payments to Referrers are currently made by Double AB. Payment will be made in the currency selected on the Referrers account.

The Referrer must supply Double with all the required payment information via the Referrers account so that Double can make payments to the Referrer on the scheduled payment day. The Referrer is also responsible for providing the correct payment information. The Referrer understands that providing incorrect payment information will lead to failed or incorrect payments that could lead to lost payments and that Double can not be held responsible for this in any way. Payments can currently made to:
a) Swedish bank accounts, including Bankgiro and PlusGiro.
b) Via BIC/IBAN. Please note that the receiving bank must be able to accept BIC/IBAN.
The Referrer is charged for any transfer and receiving fees that may occur and these fees will be subtracted from the total amount paid.

If the Referrer selects to have the earned commission paid to the Referrers company and it is a Swedish company, then Double will add VAT to the payment. If the Referrer has a foreign company, VAT is not added to the amount, companies within the EU must provide a valid VAT number.

If the Referrer selects to have the earned commission paid to as a private individual, the following applies. If the Referrer is taxable in Sweden, the Referrer is treated as a self-employed person and the money is paid as salary with deduction of employer's contribution and tax. Read more about how platform companies handle payments to self-employed people on the Swedish Tax Agency's website. If, on the other hand, the Referrer is subject to limited tax liability in Sweden, perform all work remotely from the Referrers home country, the Referrer is not liable to tax on the earned income in Sweden. This means that Double does not make any tax deductions or deductions for employer contributions in Sweden, so Double will pay the Referrers earned compensation as it is. How the Referrer handles taxes and social security contributions in the Referrers home country, we may refer you to the respective country's authority to answer. Double offers no tax advice.

Double will send control information to the Swedish Tax Agency concerning payments made to the Referrer. Double can not currently send any receipt for the control information. All payment information is available to the Referrers via the Referrers account.

Referral program

Double offers Entities the ability to start a referral program per job listing. To start a referral program that will be promoted through Double’s services and engage Double’s network of Referrers, the Entity must pass a credit check and be accepted to use the referral program service by Double. Double can deny the Entity the use of the referral program service at any time if the referral program is not handled correctly by the Entity, the Entity fails to pay the price on a referral program or if Double does not see the referral program as appropriate. Double can also start a referral program for an Entity if Double and the Entity have a separate agreement in order to promote the Entity.

The Entity sets a price per referral program and per listed job. The price can also be set by Double if Double and the Entity have a separate agreement or Double is asked to do so by the Entity. The price is invoiced to the Entity if a referral program generates a candidate that gets hired by the Entity. The Entity is not obligated to have to hire any of the job applicants if the Entity considers them inappropriate for whatever reason. Double sets and determines the referral program commission to Double’s network of Referrers. The commission is calculated based on a number of variables predetermined by Double, such as the initial price and can vary depending on Double’s analysis of current data and the market situation. Double is responsible to pay the commission to the Referrer that referred the job applicant that got hired by the Entity after the Entity has paid the price that was set on the referral program. The difference between the price and the commission is Double’s compensation for the referral program service. The Entity can not set or change the commission to Referrers. The commission is determined exclusively by Double.

Once the job is published the commission is advertised publicly through Double’s Services and marketing channels. The price can not be changed at this point. The Entity agrees to pay the price set on each referral program per hire if the hired candidate sent a job application for that job through Double’s Services. The Entity is not allowed to cancel a job and then create a new similar job just to avoid the referral program. In such an event the Entity must still pay the price of the referral program in the case where a job applicant is referred through Double and hired by the Entity. And the Entity also risks losing the ability to use referral program service and in some cases its entire account at Double.

The Entity also agrees to keep Double informed of the status of all job applicants at all times using Double’s services. If a job applicant gets hired the Entity must inform Double immediately through the Services or in writing via e-mail if the Services are not available at that time. Double keeps track of job applicants current job status through Double’s Services and through third party services that are public. Failing to inform Double of a successful hire can lead to a penalty fee that covers Double’s and the Referrers full expenses. It can also lead to the loss of your personal account, the loss of the Entity account and access to all our Services without the possibility to open a new account.

The price set on a referral program, including compensation to Referrers, will be invoiced immediately after the Entity has informed Double of a successful hire. Payment terms of 20 days will apply. Any late payment shall carry an interest for overdue payment at 10%. Administration and collection charges may also apply. All prices are excluding VAT (Swedish moms). Non-Swedish companies will not be charged VAT.

Double can not guarantee that any candidate that came through our Services and got hired by the Entity will remain hired by the Entity for any period of time. This is beyond Double’s control and Double is therefore not liable for repayment of the referral program price to the Entity in such an event.

Any content such as text, images and videos that are provided by the Entity on their published jobs or company page at Double can be used by Double and Double’s Referrers to promote the Entity and its jobs anywhere online and offline. The Entity allows Double and all its Referrers to do so and agrees to keep all parties free of any copyright or similar claims.

The only way to cancel an active referral program on a job is to unpublish the job as a whole.
