These general terms and conditions, hereinafter referred to as GTC, regulate the usage of the German version of the website, services and applications of REVONEER GmbH, hereinafter referred to as REVONEER. Certain functionalities require a registration on the website or the creation of a user account.
When using the platform after registering or creating a user account the significant areas of contractual relationship, secrecy and data protection are to be emphasized.
If you have any questions, suggestions or comments on REVONEER's terms and conditions please contact us via e-mail through firstname.lastname@example.org
Beginning with the time of registration on the website (also referred to as creating an account or registration) all information that REVONEER provides to the USER via the platform, by e-mail, orally or in any other form are subject to secrecy as per § 4.
The secrecy covers all information on PROJECTS and COOPERATION PARTNERS which cooperate with REVONEER. No information may be passed on to third parties by USER or former USER without the written permission of REVONEER. Any exceptions are classified as public, i.e. Information which is accessible on the website without registration. Likewise, the internal processes of REVONEER are subject to the obligation of secrecy for COOPERATION PARTNERS.
The registration on the website or the creation of a user account is possible for TALENTS. TALENTS are potential team members for the work on industrial and social projects which are published on the REVONEER website. Upon completion of the registration process TALENTS turn into USER and will be included in the TALENT-POOL of REVONEER.
If a USER applies for a project or receives a project invitation from REVONEER the USER turns into an APPLICANT. During the application process for a project the applicant will be given more detailed information on projects which are under obligation of secrecy. If an APPLICANT receives a commitment in terms of joining the project team he turns into a PROJECT MEMBER. Depending on the contractual relationship a PROJECT MEMBER may be a FREELANCE CONSULTANT or EMPLOYEE of REVONEER. Upon completion of a PROJECT and the project-related contractual end of the employment a FREELANCE CONSULTANT will turn into a USER again.
The nature of the contractual relationship (FREELANCE CONSULTANT or EMPLOYEE) will be clarified and clearly communicated within the application process. The relevant contract will be provided via the REVONEER platform. The requirement for a valid contract is to send the signed contract to REVONEER or upload the document via the REVONEER platform.
Even after termination of a contractual relationship, the obligation to maintain secrecy on the part of both contracting parties shall be unlimited.
