2. DESCRIPTION OF THE SERVICE
The Service allows Users to consult the job vacancies offered by the Recruiters of TOTAL Group, to reply to such job offers or to submit an unsolicited application.
An acknowledgement of receipt of the application and a description of the application processing procedure will be dispatched within 48 hours to the email address specified by the User. If a User applies for a job vacancy offered by the TOTAL Group, he will receive a response to the application within three weeks specifying whether his candidacy has been selected within other candidates applications for recruitment purposes. If no such response is received, the User should consider that his application has been rejected.
If a User has not received a reply to his application for a job vacancy or his unsolicited application within three weeks, he should consider that his profile does not fit the current recruitment requirements of the TOTAL Group. However, the TOTAL Group reserves the right to contact the User subsequently if, at a later date, his profile fits a request issued by Group Recruiters, but only within the application standby periods set out in Article 5.2 and provided the User concerned has not requested TOTAL to delete his personal data.
The Service can also email new Group job vacancies to Users who wish to receive them according to criteria predefined by the User.
3. PURPOSE OF THE SERVICE
The sole purpose of the Service is to establish contact between Users and potential TOTAL Group Recruiters. It is not designed to manage the actual recruitment of Users. Separate terms and conditions to these General Terms and Conditions of Use will apply to the recruitment process following any contact established by the Service. Recruitment will be conducted exclusively by a TOTAL Group Recruiter or Recruiters.
4. USING THE SERVICE
Users agree to supply accurate and up-to-date information when requested to do so.
Users agree not to copy, modify or alter, or attempt to copy, modify or alter in any way whatsoever, the content or programming of the Site pages from which Users can access and use the Service.
Users agree to comply with any relevant legislation applicable in the country in which they use the Service. They agree not to submit any documents, data or information that are defamatory, insulting, infringing, unlawful, erroneous or forged or that are contrary to rules of public policy or morality or that may disrupt or interfere with the operation of the Site or the Service.
The Service Provider reserves the right to delete any application that is clearly contrary to public policy or morality and to sue any User violating these provisions or the applicable legislation.
5. USER DATA
5.1 Purpose for collecting data from Users
The only reason for collecting personal data from Users is for the TOTAL Group Recruiters to assess whether a User's profile fits job vacancy requirements.
The information considered essential for the proper assessment of job vacancy replies or unsolicited applications is marked with an asterisk. Any User application failing to reply to these compulsory questions will not be considered. The other personal data requested is optional.
TOTAL will not discriminate against Service Users based on their replies to questions asked by the Service or for failing to reply to optional questions. Similarly, TOTAL will not discriminate against Users based on their replies to compulsory questions asked by the Service (such as age, nationality, civil status, etc.). Such data is merely intended to enable TOTAL to respond more relevantly and personally to Users as part of the Service.
A User's application will be accessible to all the companies in the TOTAL Group that may be interested by his profile, whether located inside or outside the European Union. If required, an application may also be passed on to Recruiters outside the Group for applicants selection purposes, to which Users consent by replying to a job offer or submitting an unsolicited application. In any event, the data supplied by the User will be used to assess his application for a job offered by the Group and for recruitment purposes. It will never be passed on or divulged for any other purposes.
5.2 Guaranteed protection of User data confidentiality
Pursuant to the French Computer Data and Civil Liberties Act No. 78-17 of 6 January 1978 and, at European level, Directive 95/46/EC on personal data and privacy protection, any User is entitled to apply for access to the data concerning him, saved by TOTAL for the purposes of the Service, and request that it be changed, rectified or deleted, by sending a letter to TOTAL enclosing a copy of a document proving his identity and specifying his postal address, to the following address: TOTAL, Direction du Recrutement - Service Back Office Recruitment, 2, Place de la Coupole, La Défense 6, 92078 La Défense Cedex.
The personal data collected via the Service will only be stored by the Service Provider for a limited time:
- for internships and IVS contracts (N.B. IVS offers are reserved for citizens of the European Union), 6 months;
- for career beginners, 12 months;
- for experienced employees, 12 months.
Users are reminded that they may request the deletion of their personal data from the Group's records at any time according to the procedure set out above.
The Service Provider does not guarantee that no copy of applicants data will be stored by TOTAL Group companies for a longer period, under their exclusive control and at their sole liability.
The Service Provider agrees to implement "state of the art" methods to avoid the violation of the integrity and confidentiality of the data by non-authorised third parties. However, due to the technical characteristics of the network, the Service Provider cannot guarantee the security, confidentiality and integrity of data transmitted via the Internet.
In any event, a User may configure his computer so that cookies are systematically refused by his navigator or require his express authorisation. To obtain practical information on available navigator options, Users are invited to consult the "Your traces" section of the CNIL web site (the French personal data protection authority ) at the following address http://www.cnil.fr.
7. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY
The Site pages allowing access to the Service, and all the elements comprising and/or used for the operation of the Service, including photographs, images, animations, software, interfaces, trade marks, logos, written text, designs, icons and illustrations (hereafter together referred to as the "Data") are protected world-wide by intellectual and industrial property law.
In general, the User does not acquire any right or interest in the intellectual property rights in the Data by accessing the Service. Such rights remain the exclusive property of the TOTAL Group or third party rights owners, if appropriate.
The User is authorised to copy the job vacancies accessed via the Service solely for personal information and strictly private use. Otherwise, Users are not authorised to copy, reproduce, exhibit, modify, alter, translate, create derivatives or distribute all or any part of the Data or to exploit or use it in any manner whatsoever outside the Service.
Any non-authorised or unlawful use of the Data may incur the civil or criminal liability of the User according to the applicable legislation.
8. DATA BASE
The Service operates a data base incorporating information on the job applications submitted by Users and the job vacancies offered by TOTAL (hereafter referred to as the "Data Base").
This Data Base is the exclusive property of the Service Provider.
In accordance with French law, Users agree not to violate the intellectual property rights of the Service Provider in the Data Base, to refrain from any systematic or substantial extraction of data and not to use such data for any purpose that is not strictly personal and non-commercial.
Users agree not to access the contents of the Data Base other than via the Service and according to the terms and conditions defined for its use.
9. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
The Service Provider does not control the job vacancies placed in the Service by Recruiters. Such vacancies are posted at the sole liability of Recruiters.
9.1 The Service Provider provides the Recruiters with User applications. This does not guarantee that the Recruiters will retain User applications or that Users will be contacted by a Recruiter for recruitment purposes.
9.2 The Service Provider does not control the selection and recruitment procedure used by the various companies in the TOTAL Group and/or by Recruiters. Accordingly, the Service Provider declines all liability regarding the use made by the various companies in the TOTAL group or by Recruiters of data submitted by Users via the Service during the recruitment process, particularly for any use of such data in violation of the legislation in force in the country in which recruitment is taking place.
9.3 TOTAL offers no warranty regarding the hypertext links whereby Users access third party web sites and does not undertake to verify such links or the content of the websites to which they connect the User. A reference to a third party web site in no way implies TOTAL's approval of the third party web site or TOTAL's approval of the goods or services that may be on offer there. Accordingly, TOTAL declines all liability for the content or privacy protection policy of the web sites to which Users may be connected via hypertext links.
9.4 In view of the technical uncertainties intrinsic to the Internet, the Service Provider cannot guarantee uninterrupted running of the Service and cannot be held liable for any disruptions, suspensions or malfunctions, any bugs in the Service, or the alteration, destruction or loss of data supplied by Users. Users also acknowledges that the Service may be interrupted for maintenance purposes.
In addition, the Service Provider cannot be held liable for any difficulty in accessing or using the Service due to any malfunction or insufficient capacity on any Site allowing Users access to the Service, if such Site is operated by a company other than TOTAL SA.
9.5 The Service Provider reserves the right, at any time, to change, or temporarily or permanently suspend, all or part of the Service, with or without notice. The Service Provider cannot be held liable to Users or to third parties for any Service changes, suspensions or stoppages.
10. FORCE MAJEURE
The Service Provider will not be liable for any loss or damage caused as a result of a case of force majeure recognised under French case law.
