The Company acknowledges and accepts that WORKLING is only the administrator of the Platform, and that the Service provided is limited only and exclusively to create a connection among the Companies and the Applicants, without having WORKLING any type of participation in the announcements of job offers that are made by the Companies in the Platform (hereinafter, the “Job Offers”), nor in the conditions that the Companies offer, nor in the communications that Companies and Applicants may have nor in the eventual employment relationship that may arise among them, in the event that the hiring is perfected. Therefore, WORKLING is not responsible for the effective fulfillment of the civil, labor, commercial, administrative and/or tax obligations that are stablished in the applicable legislation considering that WORKLING does not offer any job nor does it have any control over the conditions, truthfulness and/or legality of the Job Offers that Companies publish in the Platform nor of the information stated by the Companies and/or the Applicants in their profiles nor in the potential bond that may arise among them by virtue of the Job Offers made in the Platform.

For that, the Company only has to state if it wishes to import from other sites that contain public information of their job offers there published and/or create a Job Offer for the work position that they are looking for and the jurisdiction they prefer. Then, once the Company is registered in the Platform and its Company’s Profile is completed, Companies may create or import the Job Offers they desire to the Platform.
3.1 Company’s registry. The Company, to start using the Platform and publish Job Offers, must register in the Platform. To this effect, the Company may choose to create an user manually (entering its e-mail and creating a password that fulfills the demanded security requirements) or use its Google® o Facebook® account and link it with the Platform. After this simplified registry Company must provide certain personal data to complete the registration process such as, only for illustrative purposes: name, category, telephone number, country of residence, address, postal code, tax identifier (i.e. CUIT), website and, in the event it wishes to do so, their LinkedIn® profile. Once completed the data, the Company will receive an e-mail of WORKLING requesting the confirmation of its registry. When the Company validates its account, it will have successfully completed the registration process and will have an URL of its public profile with their name. The Company may choose to complete the look and feel of its Company’s Profile (i.e adding their logo, description of their activity or services, etc.) or directly import the Job Offers that the Company has uploaded in other Internet sites. The validation process of the Company’s Profile will be subject to a verification that WORKLING makes to prevent the creation of false accounts or what is commonly named as “ghosts accounts”.
