Terms and Conditions

Last revised: December 16th, 2019

 

This page sets out the terms and conditions of use of the PMlocaljobs website operated by CPS Média Inc. (“CPS”) (collectively and individually the “Website”).

Any user of the Website is deemed to have read, accepted and recognized the validity of the terms set out below, and undertakes to respect them and be bound by them. If a user of the Website does not accept these terms and conditions, they must stop using the Website. CPS may, at any moment and without prior notice, modify these terms and conditions. The users of the Website are asked to check regularly if the terms and conditions have been modified. The users are deemed to have accepted any modifications to the terms and conditions if they continue to use the Website following the publication of the modifications.

These terms and conditions form the full set of rights and obligations between CPS and any user of the Website, and replace any terms or prior provision relating to the use of the Website. No verbal or written declaration from an employee or director of CPS, or any other person, may modify or substitute these terms and conditions.

The Website is managed and fed from a computer located in the province of Quebec, Canada. The content and use of the Website are governed by the applicable laws of Quebec and Canada. These terms and conditions, as well as any dispute or misunderstanding resulting from their application, must be interpreted in accordance with these laws. In the case that any part of these terms and conditions were held to be unlawful, null or unenforceable, this part would be deemed to be divisible from all other provisions of these terms and conditions and would thus not affect the validity or enforceability of these other provisions, which would be interpreted without making reference to the removed section.

Any litigation resulting from or associated to the use of the Website or to these terms and conditions shall be subjected to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the province of Quebec or a federal Canadian court, in the judicial district of Montreal, despite any potential application of the principle of conflicting laws.

Some jurisdictions do not allow terms and conditions to be governed by the laws of a foreign jurisdiction and/or or prohibit the attribution of jurisdiction to a court. Accordingly, applicable laws of Quebec may not apply to you and the foregoing courts may not be the exclusive forum.

In all cases, the application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, also known as the Vienna Convention, and any local implementing legislation related to the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is hereby expressly excluded.

The Website is accessible through the use of the Internet and in standard Internet formats. CPS reserves the right to modify these formats at all times and it is the obligation of the user to procure, at their cost, access to the Internet as well as any software required to access the Website.

Any employment offer must be a legitimate offer from an employer.

CPS reserves the right to control the content of employment offers prior to their posting, which can be delayed by up to 48 hours.

As a consequence, the Website and all of its Content are made available for users “as is”, without any warranty of any nature whatsoever, express or implied. Without limiting the foregoing, CPS makes no warranty regarding the availability or stability of the Website Content, the possibility to access it, the absence of any virus, or the precision, reliability, accuracy, integrity, exhaustive nature, performance or fitness for a particular purpose of the information provided, including that which relates to partners of CPS, to the legislation or regulation or availability of the services described. The user must take note that the Website is regularly subject to technical maintenance, which may limit or impede access for a temporary or prolonged period.

The Website is accessible by way of the Internet and in standard Internet format. CPS reserves the right to modify these formats at any time and it is incumbent upon the user to obtain Internet access at his or her own cost, as well as any programs required to access the Website. CPS reserves the right to correct any error or change to the Content without prior notice. CPS has full discretion, above and beyond all other rights and recourses at its disposal, without liability, to, in any way, at any time and without prior notice, interrupt or restrict access to any element of its Website.
