Advertising Terms of Use

Advertisers on www.EthicalJobs.com.au ("Site") agree to be bound by the following terms and conditions.


1. Before posting an advertisement for a paid employment vacancy, the Advertiser must purchase Advertising Credit. Each Advertising Credit gives the holder rights to post one advertisement, subject to clause 2.


2. EthicalJobs.com.au (ABN 89 236 272 208) allows employers to advertise job vacancies for "ethical jobs". For the purposes of this site, ethical jobs are jobs that contribute to a more equitable, more just or more sustainable world, as judged by EthicalJobs.com.au. Specifically, advertisements must fulfill one or more of the following criteria:

a) Any job in an organisation where the organisation's primary focus is contributing to a more equitable, more just or more environmentally sustainable world.

b) A job within any organisation or company where the job itself is largely focused on creating a more equitable, more just or more environmentally sustainable world.

Any organisation that derives income or receives significant funding the tobacco, military, gambling or uranium industries is excluded from advertising on EthicalJobs.com.au.


3. EthicalJobs.com.au reserves the right to withdraw without notice to the Advertiser any advertisement that appears to EthicalJobs.com.au not to fulfil one or more of the criteria above.


4. Advertisements which appear on EthicalJobs.com.au do not in any way imply an endorsement of an employer or of any practices of that employer.


5. EthicalJobs.com.au reviews all job advertisements prior to publication and reserves the right to withdraw without notice to the Advertiser any advertisement that may in our view be in breach of any clause of this agreement or of any law or regulation.


6. EthicalJobs.com.au also reserves the right to terminate this agreement if the Advertiser posts any advertisement that may be in breach of any law or regulation. Further, EthicalJobs.com.au reserves the right to, at our absolute discretion, reject or remove any advertisement from the Site for any reason.


7. In the case where an advertisement is rejected or withdrawn by EthicalJobs.com.au, EthicalJobs.com.au will, at its own discretion, either refund to the Advertiser the amount paid minus an administration fee, or grant to the advertiser one advertising credit for every withdrawn advertisement.


8. All amounts owing to EthicalJobs.com.au by Advertisers must be paid within 14 days of the date of invoice notwithstanding any errors or omissions in any advertisement placed on the Site. EthicalJobs.com.au may charge Advertisers interest on late payment at the rate of 12.5% per annum and reserves the right to recoup any collection costs incurred from the Advertiser. EthicalJobs.com.au also reserves the right to disable an Advertiser's account with EthicalJobs.com.au without notice and refuse to supply further services to an Advertiser's organisation if EthicalJobs.com.au's invoice is not paid within the above required trading terms.


9. Advertisers are obliged to pay for the services that Ethicaljobs.com.au agrees to provide you with regardless of whether you utilise or fully utilise those services. If an Advertiser does not provide Ethicaljobs.com.au with the necessary materials or information for Ethicaljobs.com.au to deliver these services, the Advertiser is still liable to Ethicaljobs.com.au for full payment.


10. As a condition of using any services supplied by EthicalJobs.com.au, Advertisers must comply with the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission Act 1986 (C'th) and all anti-discrimination and equal opportunity legislation applicable in the State or Territory in which they conduct business. Where an exemption to comply with the legislation has been granted, the exemption number must be included in the advertisement submitted to EthicalJobs.com.au.
