You have requested and obtained express consent from the reccomended individual to the sharing of their data (including any personal data);

The use of any data provided is at our sole discretion;
The validity of the recommendation is totally subject to acceptance by the recommended individual;
Interest in hiring the recommended profile is at the sole discretion of the user who sponsored the bounty;
You are not a party to any type of agreement that we or our clients may enter into with the recommended individual;
That we reserve the right to verify your actual compliance with these terms and possibly consider any obligation towards you null and void if they are violated;
The data collected through the recommendations will be used exclusively for sending a communication to the recommended individual, necessary for the execution of the platform's services. In any case, if the recommended individual does not expressly approve the recommendation, it will be kept for a maximum time of 30 days, after which the recommendation will be canceled and the data deleted.

2.5 If you are subject of a referral any subsequent processing your data will be subject to your express approval. If no approval is given, all your data and the relative referral will be deleted when requested and in any case within 30 days from the referral date.
By accepting the referral and the data processing you declare that:
You agree to be a candidate for a job offer through the platform, in total freedom and autonomy, and therefore be subject to the provisions of point 2.4
You release TCA from any responsibility for the truthfulness, accuracy, updating and completeness of the information provided by the person making the recommendation.

All information useful to determine if your profile matches the one sought in the job bounties will be stored in the talent pool.
No information in the talent pool will be passed on to third parties without your express approval and strictly in reference to a specific job offer.
3. Compensation terms
The compensation methods and times for each bounty are specified in the bounty itself.
No compensation amount will be paid in the event of:
recommendation of individuals already present in the talent pool at the time of the recommendation;
recommendation of individuals who have previously refused recommendations for the same job offer;
recommendation of individuals who already have a pending recommendation for the same job offer;
recommendation of individuals who are not eligible to be considered candidates under the terms presented in this document;
