Deviating, conflicting or supplementary GTC of the contractual partner shall only become part of the contract if and to the extent UAtalents has expressly agreed to their validity in writing.

1.1 UAtalents determines a suitable candidate for the customer on the basis of its own applicant database and the requirement profile specified by the customer. UAtalents will endeavor to find a candidate that has the experience, training, qualifications, and any authorization that the customer considers necessary or which may be required by law or by any professional body and that the candidate is willing to work in the position that the customer seeks to fill. In performing the placement services, UAtalents also takes into account applications and applicant profiles received after the conclusion of the contract. UAtalents is only required to make other special inquiries if this has been expressly agreed upon.

In this regard, UAtalents will regularly develop mediation activities in order to promote the mediation.

1.4 In principle, the scope of the services specifically selected by the Customer shall be taken into account for the calculation of the remuneration to be paid for the services. If a placement is not successful, the guidelines of section A.3.2 apply. The customer understands that UAtalents incurs recruiting expenses by performing prior to the payment of the remuneration. Thus, UAtalents operates on a risk-based and contingency-bound procedure and will be remunerated through the payment of the agreed fee after the successful placement of a referred job seeker. Besides the remuneration calculated based on this pricing matrix, the customer is not obliged to separately reimburse UAtalents for expenses connected to the placement of a job seeker, for instance, long-distance telephone calls, traveling, sourcing expenses, website advertising, postage, office support, or other ordinary recruiting expenses.
1.5 The remuneration is due 15 calendar days after the candidate’s successful placement, namely signing a contract with the candidate.

2.3 The customer is obligated to immediately, but in any case not later than 10 business days, notify UAtalents of the conclusion of a contract that is concluded as a result of mediation by UAtalents.
2.4 Referred candidates are considered active UAtalents candidates for a period of one (1) year from the date of the initial referral to the customer. Should the customer hire or employ a referred candidate in any job during this period, the remuneration fees described in section B.1.4 are due. During the term of the agreement between UAtalents and the customer, and for a period of one (1) year thereafter, the customer will not, directly or indirectly, solicit for employment any candidate of UAtalents without being obliged to pay the remuneration fee described in section B.1.4. If UAtalents' chance to earn the full remuneration in the sense of section B.1.4 and A.3.2 is thwarted as a result of the customer's conduct that is contrary to the provisions of these GTCs and culpable, the customer shall pay the full remuneration in accordance with the provisions of this contract. Compensation for further damage shall not be excluded thereby.
