6. SEARCH ORDER EXECUTION:

BeThe1, therefore cannot be held liable for any loss or damages, or other costs irrespective of how caused, which the Employer may suffer or for which the Employer may become liable, arising out of or in connection with, the introduction of the candidate to the Employer. B-The unavailability of the network or problems connecting to the network or in sending data viewed on the Site. C-The information posted on the Site by the Employer, the processing of résumé by the Employer or any use of the Site that does not comply with these T&Cs or with any codes or passwords that BeThe1 may provide the Employer. D-The Employer shall alone be liable for the use of its e-mail system when connected to the Site and for the information contained in this system and their use of this information. BeThe1 shall use its best efforts when conducting its Searches; however BeThe1 has under no circumstance an absolute obligation of performance or result. If BeThe1 is judged liable for a Search that is incorrectly executed as the result of its sole and direct fault, BeThe1 shall provide no compensation for any business or consequential loss suffered by the Employer and shall only be liable for reimbursing the amount the Employer paid to place said defective Search.


10. JURISDICTION:

These T&Cs are governed by the laws of the BeThe1 entity country stated on the PO. In case of dispute, the competent court will be the one of the city where is established BeThe1 entity (eg Paris, France ; Hong Kong ; Singapore ; New York, USA). If any provision of these T&C is found to be invalid by any court having competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these Terms, which shall remain in full force and effect. No waiver of any term of these Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term.
