Each party (each, in such capacity, the "Indemnifying Party") shall indemnify the other party, its affiliates and their respective officers, directors, employees and agents (each, in such capacity, an "Indemnified Party" and, collectively, the "Indemnified Parties"), from and against any third party claims, actions or demands, including without limitation reasonable legal and accounting fees, arising or resulting from: (a) infringement or alleged infringement of any patent, copyright, trade secret or other proprietary right of any third party, arising out of or relating to, (i) in the case of Monster, the delivery of the Services and (ii) in the case of the Customer, the provision of any material to any Site by or on behalf of the Customer; (b) in the case of Monster, gross negligence or willful misconduct arising out of or relating to the delivery of the Services; and (c) in the case of the Customer, gross negligence, willful misconduct or defamation arising out of or related to use of the Services.

This Agreement, which may be executed in counterparts, contains the entire understanding of the parties with respect to the transactions and matters contemplated hereby, supersedes all previous communications, understandings and agreements (whether oral or written), as well as any sales orders or other terms and conditions or purchase terms not supplied by Monster that have been or may from time to time be submitted by Customer, and cannot be amended or waived except in writing and agreed by both parties. Save as otherwise allowed in Clause 3, neither party may assign this Agreement in whole or in part, by merger, asset or share sale or transfer, or otherwise, without the prior written consent of the non-assigning party, except, in the case of Monster, (i) in connection with a merger, consolidation, reorganisation or sale of all or substantially all of its assets, or (ii) to a party controlling, controlled by or under common control with Monster (each a "Permitted Assignment"). No party has relied on any representation or warranty of any other party not expressly set forth in this Agreement. No failure or delay on the part of any party in exercising any right or remedy provided in this Agreement shall operate as a waiver thereof; nor shall any single or partial exercise of or failure to exercise any such right or remedy preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right or remedy under this Agreement.

PRODUCT TERMS – subscription plan

Each subscription plan (START PLAN, STANDARD PLAN, PREMIUM PLAN), in accordance to its type, shall include (i) certain amount of Slot Job Ads; and/or (ii) access to Monster Search. The amount of subscribed Slot Job Ads and details of Monster Search access shall be specified in the Sales Order. Slot Job Ads may include additional services as Job Bolding or Job Refresh if and as specified in the Sales Order.

(i) Slot Job Ads: Monster will permit Customer to post jobs ads (i.e.; an advertisement for a job vacancy placed on the Site/s specified on the Sales Order) to a slot ("Slot Job Ads") on the Site in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and the Terms of Use. Slot Job Ads may be posted for a minimum of one (1) day and a maximum of thirty (30) days during the Product Duration specified in the Sales Order for such Slot Job Ads. Each Slot Job Ad will automatically expire thirty (30) days from activation unless expired sooner by Customer. Each Slot Job Ad may include only one (1) job description in one (1) location and one (1) job category with up to three (3) occupations and three (3) industries per category. Slot Job Ads can be expired at any time by Customer and once expired can be replaced with a different Slot Job Ad. Once a Slot Job Ad has been manually expired by Customer, the same Slot Job Ad cannot be reposted for at least 24 hours. Customer acknowledges that Slot Job Ads on the Sites also appear in search results on other websites owned or affiliated with Monster, including websites co-branded with third parties. Slot Job Ads submitted to Monster via the Business Gateway (BGW) may be sent no more than once per day, in a format to be specified by Monster, using FTP, XML or HTTP (depending on the format). The Sales Order may also describe whether the Slot Job Ads include bolding and the terms, if any, under which the job postings may be auto-renewed. Further terms applicable to both job postings and Slot Job Ads are as highlighted above.

The Customer agrees that all postings that it displays on the Site will relate to specific live job positions and will not be stock or generic job descriptions. Save as set forth in the Sales Order, Customer agrees not to post any job on any Site that: (i) does not comply with applicable laws or regulations; (ii) contains links to any site competitive with Monster; (iii) contain "hidden", irrelevant or misleading keywords; (iv) contains any pyramid scheme, "club membership", distributorship or sales representative agency arrangement or other business opportunity which requires an up front or periodic payment, pays commissions only (except where the posting states that it is commission only and clearly describes the products/services to be sold), or requires recruitment of other members, sub-distributors or sub-agents; (v) contains any logo or brands other than its own save as permitted by clause 6 of the Terms and Conditions; (vi) contains a hyperlink to Customer's own career website; or (vii) contains a hyperlink to any website which contains material which is defamatory, offensive or obscene or of a menacing character or which may, in Monster's judgment, cause annoyance or inconvenience or anxiety to any person including, without limitation, any racist, sexist, harassing, threatening, discriminatory, vulgar or abusive material, opinions or messages. Monster reserves the right in its sole discretion to immediately remove any non-compliant job posting or postings on any Site which Customer has not expressly purchased, at any time.

JOB BOLDING: Job Bolding allows Customer to bold the job posting name and location in the list of results on all job searches.

JOB REFRESH: Job Refresh allows Customer to refresh job postings one or more times during the time period of the postings. When refreshing a Job Posting, the posting will be sent to the top of the job search result list and the date published will likewise be updated.

(ii) Search Monster

A Search Monster License provides Customer with access to Monster’s CV database which contains searchable CVs of job seekers (“CV Database”). A Search Monster is a license for a single, individual user under the direct control of Customer (“CV User”) to access the CV Database through one unique password for the duration and type (i.e. national or local) as set forth in the Sales Order. Each Search Monster License will be subject to a reasonable usage policy including a limit of 20,000 cv views in any 12 months (pro-rated for shorter licences). A CV view occurs when a CV is acted upon following a cv search. Examples of a single CV view include without limitation when a CV User: (a) opens a CV, (b) opens and prints the cv, (c) opens and emails the CV, (d) opens and adds it to a folder or (e) adds a CV to a folder without opening such CV. Multiple CV views occur when a CV User opens and closes the same CV multiple times (Note: a “viewed” icon will be displayed in the CV search results to indicate that a CV has been viewed by the CV User). Once a CV is placed in a folder, Customer may open the CV multiple times without further CV views occurring. Customer agrees to notify Monster promptly after the departure of any person to whom a password was provided and Monster reserves the right to cancel such password and issue a replacement password, upon notification to Customer. Monster reserves the right periodically to change issued passwords upon notification to Customer. If additional users (other than named CV Database license holders) are accessing the CV Database, then such sharing will be a breach of this Agreement. Customer agrees that it will use the CV database to search for candidates for specific live jobs with matching profiles and will not offer them any other services. The Monster Search License may also not be used to source candidates generally or to contact job seekers or CV holders in regards to any home-based business opportunities, fee-based business opportunities or franchise opportunities.
