These terms and conditions (the “Terms & Conditions” or the “Agreement”) govern your use of Kira Talent Inc.’s (“Kira Talent”, “we”, “us” or “our”) platform (the “Platform”) and other services that Kira Talent may offer (the “Other Services” and together with the Platform, the “Services”). We reserve the right to update these Terms & Conditions from time to time, so please check this page frequently for changes. Your continued use of our Services after a change to the Terms & Conditions will be deemed as your acceptance the revised Agreement.
2. THE PLATFORM
The Platform is comprised of a set of software, code, tools, databases and other elements that enable you to participate in video interviews (“Interviews”) with organizations (i.e. businesses, educational institutions, volunteer organizations) who are recruiting or assessing applicants (each, a “Recruiting Organization”). The reason you are accessing the Platform is because you have applied to or for a position with a Recruiting Organization and that Recruiting Organization is using the Platform as part of its recruiting process. Even though your application is to and for the Recruiting Organization, by virtue of using the Platform, you are agreeing to these Terms & Conditions. This Agreement is the means by which we grant you the right to use the Platform, and your permission to use the Platform is conditional upon your agreeing to, and compliance with, these Terms & Conditions. Please note that this Agreement will still survive after your application process with the Recruiting Organization has ended. It will continue until such time as you elect to terminate this Agreement, subject to certain provisions surviving termination as explained in Section 20.
3. VIDEOS + RECORDINGS
The interviews conducted through the Platform have two components: (1) those questions and other related content that are recorded for viewing or otherwise provided by Recruiting Organizations (“Recruiting Organization Content”); and (2) the responses that you, as an applicant, provide in response to the Recruiting Organization Content (“Your Content” and together with Recruiting Organization Content, the “Recordings”). As between you and us, you own all rights in Your Content, and you grant us a royalty-free license to use Your Content as we may reasonably require to provide the Services, including without limitation providing access to Your Content to Recruiting Organizations in connection with your application.
You are responsible for all information, materials and content you include in Your Content. You must ensure anything contained in Your Content is not unlawful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, libelous, deceptive, fraudulent, invasive of another’s privacy, and does not impersonate another person. You must also ensure that you have all rights necessary to use anything contained in Your Content. For example, and without limitation, there may be copyright owned by third parties in music, photographs or other content that you choose to use in Your Content. You must ensure that you have the necessary rights to use such content before including it in Your Content.
5. ACCESS TO RECORDINGS
Once you have submitted Your Content to us through the Platform, we will retain such content for up to two (2) years. During this period, Your Content will solely be used: (1) for purposes of providing the Services; (2) for data collection or analysis on or in respect of the Services (in which case, any content will be used solely on an anonymized, aggregated basis); (3) to comply with legal process; (4) to enforce this Agreement; or (5) protect our rights and the rights of our users and the general public. After the two (2) year period, Your Content will be deleted.
6. ACCEPTABLE USE
You agree not to do any of the following in connection with your use of the Platform or otherwise in connection with the Interviews: (1) engage in any activity that degrades the Platform for other users; (2) violate any policies we may adopt in connection with the Platform from time-to-time; (3) compromise the security or integrity of the Platform, or attempt to reverse engineer, modify or copy the Services; or (4) breach any applicable laws, rules or regulations, or infringe upon any third party’s intellectual property rights or other rights (including rights of privacy and publicity). If you breach any of the foregoing, or any other provision of this Agreement, we may take whatever steps we deem necessary to protect the Platform, our business and our other clients, including, without limitation, suspending your access to the Platform and/or termination this Agreement..
Your use of the Services will be accessed through an account and a username/email and/or password that you will create (your “Credentials”). Your Credentials are solely for your use. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Credentials and you are responsible for all activities that occur under your Credentials. Accordingly, please take adequate precautions with your Credentials and immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your Credentials.
We have implemented and maintain technical and organizational measures consistent with industry standards, including those measures found here (as may be updated from time-to-time, the “Security Measures”), to ensure that any information disclosed to us by you, or any Recruiting Organization, is secure. However, we cannot guarantee that such measures will never be defeated. Accordingly, unless it was caused by our negligence, wilful misconduct or failure to maintain the Security Measures, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, we are not responsible for any unauthorized or third party hacking, access, use, alteration or disclosure of your data or personal information. Upon request, we will provide you with a list of the current security protocols that we employ.
There are no fees associated with your use of the Platform, though we may in the future charge fees for use of Other Services that we offer. Your use of any Other Services will be optional and we will not charge any fees for them unless you have opted-in to using such Other Services.
The term of this Agreement will commence on the date that you first use, or otherwise register for, the Services (which includes the first time you visit our website located at www.kiratalent.com), and will continue in full effect until your account is cancelled and you cease using the Services.
We may terminate this Agreement and your access to the Services at any time, with or without notice, if you breach a material provision of this Agreement or otherwise for our convenience. We have no obligation to provide you with any notice of your breach of this Agreement but we may choose to provide notice, and an opportunity to cure such breach, in our sole discretion should we so choose.
We agree to defend, indemnify and hold you harmless from any damages, penalties, liabilities and costs resulting from third party claims that your use of the Platform as permitted in this Agreement infringes the patent rights, copyrights or other intellectual property right of a third party. You agree to defend, indemnify and hold us harmless from any damages, penalties, liabilities and costs resulting from third party claims arising from: (1) your breach of this Agreement; (2) your negligence or wilful misconduct; (3) any content you upload or share through the Platform; or (4) any disputes you may have with any Recruiting Organizations. Any indemnification obligations under this section are conditional upon the indemnified party: (a) promptly giving the indemnifying party written notice of the claim; (b) giving the indemnifying party sole control of the defense and settlement of the claim (provided that indemnifying party may not settle any claim unless it unconditionally releases the indemnified party of all liability), provided that the indemnified party may retain counsel to participate in the proceedings; and (c) providing the indemnifying party with all reasonable assistance, at the indemnifying party’s expense.

You are invited to provide us with suggestions, comments, or other feedback with respect to the Services (“Feedback”).

The waiver by either party of any default or breach of any term of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of any other or subsequent default or breach. Except for your non-payment or breach of our proprietary rights in the Platform, no action, regardless of form, arising out of this Agreement may be brought by either of us more than one year after the cause of action has accrued.
If any provision of this Agreement is determined to be unenforceable, invalid or in breach of any law by any tribunal, public body or court of competent jurisdiction for any reason whatsoever, the unenforceability or invalidity of such provision shall not affect the enforceability or validity of the remaining provisions of this Agreement and such unenforceable or invalid provision shall be severed from the remainder of this Agreement and as so modified this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
