2 Our Contract

2.1 In order to receive our Services you will need to be given access to a MyHR Account. Upon access being given a legally binding contract between us and you will come into effect ("Our Contract"). Our Contract will comprise these Terms and, if you agree to purchase a MyHR Software Subscription, any additional terms and conditions applicable to your MyHR Software Subscription and/or our Services which we have previously notified you of.

2.2 We may, at our absolute discretion, give you access to a MyHR Account and the MyHR Software on a free, trial basis for a period of 14 days or such other period as we may specify ("Trial Period"). During the Trial Period:

(a) You will not need to pay the Price for any of our Services;

(b) You may only use the Services and Documentation in relation to one fictional employee. You may not use or rely on any of the Services or Documentation for any of your actual employees or contractors.

(c) You must not copy, adapt or modify any Documentation.

(d) We will not provide you any Consulting Services. Our HR consultants will only describe to you the type of assistance and support they could provide in relation to any issue or matter if you proceeded to purchase a MyHR Software Subscription.

(e) We will have no liability under or in connection with Our Contract or the Services (whether in contract (including under an indemnity), tort or otherwise).

2.3 At the end of the Trial Period, if you wish to purchase a MyHR Software Subscription, you will need to complete our sign-up and on-boarding processes and Our Contract will continue. If you do not wish to purchase a MyHR Software Subscription, Our Contract will end, we will close your MyHR Account and remove your access to the Services, and you must cease all use of the Documentation and return it to us if we require.

2.4 Your MyHR Software Subscription will commence once you have completed our sign-up process and we have confirmed this to you in writing.

2.5 We may (at our absolute discretion) decline any order, registration or request for our Services, whether on a free, trial or paid basis.

2.6 Our Contract records the entire understanding and agreement between you and us relating to the Services, and supersedes all previous understandings or agreements (whether written, oral or both) relating to the Services.

 

3 Your account with us

3.1 You warrant and undertake that you have provided as part of our sign-up process, and will continue to provide, accurate, up-to-date, and complete information about yourself and your business. This includes maintaining under your MyHR Account accurate and up-to-date information (including copies of employment agreements) about the employees and contractors that you and (where applicable) your Affiliates engage in your business.

3.2 We need this information to provide you with the Services. Incomplete or incorrect information may affect the quality of Services we provide and we are not liable for any issues or Losses that arise as a result of incomplete or incorrect information. For example, if you operate in New Zealand this information is particularly important in relation to the 90-day trial period. As at 1 April 2020 employers of 20 or more people are not able to use a 90-day trial period. Should we provide support for a 90-day trial period on the assumption that you have less than 20 employees and it is later determined that a trial period is invalid due to employees we were unaware of, we are in no way liable for any Losses you incur as a result of the support we provided to you.

3.3 You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your MyHR Account credentials (including passwords) and for preventing any unauthorised person from using your computer or MyHR Account to access our Services.

3.4 You accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your MyHR Account. You must tell us immediately if you believe someone has accessed your MyHR Account without your authority and also log-in to your MyHR Account and change your password.

3.5 You may have an unlimited number of users accessing or using the Services under your MyHR Account, categorised as “Owner” or “Manager”. You must ensure that your users comply with your obligations under Our Contract as if they were a party to it.

3.6 Your employees may access some of their information via employee self-service functionality provided by the MyHR Software. It is their responsibility to maintain as confidential the passwords they use to access this information. Providing employees with access to their information via the self-service functionality does not provide a full legal compliance solution in relation to the provision of access to personal information under applicable Privacy Laws. You must remain aware of and comply with your legal obligations in this respect.

 

4 Price and payment

4.1 The Prices for our Services are as set out in the relevant Quote or, in the absence of any such Quote been given, as set out on our Website.

4.2 We may increase any or all of our Prices at any time. We will endeavour to give you at least eight (8) weeks' notice of any increase to our Prices. If the increase is not acceptable to you, you may terminate Our Contract in accordance with clause 16 below.

4.3 You must pay the applicable Prices via credit card or such other payment method as we may agree with you from time to time. Where payment is by credit card or direct debit, you authorise us to arrange withdrawal of funds immediately and each month without further reference to you.

4.4 Unless stated otherwise in a Quote or on our Website, all Prices will be charged monthly in advance with payment due in full (without set-off) by the fifth day of the month.

4.5 If you fail to pay any amount in full by the due date, the overdue amount will bear default interest until the date on which payment of the overdue amount is made in full. Default interest will accrue and be calculated on a daily basis at 12% per annum and will be compounded monthly.

4.6 You must reimburse us (on a full indemnity basis) for all costs incurred by us (including legal and/or collection agency costs) in recovering and/or attempting to recover from you any overdue amounts.

4.7 All payments are non-refundable (including upon any suspension or termination under clause 16), unless otherwise agreed at our sole discretion or required by applicable law.

4.8 Your MyHR Software Subscription and the associated Price is based on the number of employees and/or contractors in your and (where applicable) your Affiliates' organisation or the number of employees and/or contractors you elect, in consultation with us, to be covered by your MyHR Software Subscription.

4.9 We accept, for some organisations, that using the MyHR Software only for a specific division, department or region may be all that is required. The MyHR Software’s unique flexibility allows this to occur. However, such arrangements may not be used by you to avoid paying the correct Price. Our Services and Documentation are not available to, and must not be used in relation to, any employees or contractors which exceed the limit of or are not otherwise covered by your MyHR Software Subscription.

4.10 We may from time to time require you and (where applicable) your Affiliates to provide us with access to your systems, premises, documents, records and information for the sole purpose of verifying the number of employees and/or contractors in respect of which you are using the Services and/or Documentation. We will keep all such documents, records and information confidential (except as required by law). If we require access to your systems and/or premises, we will adhere to any reasonable security and health and safety policies which you and (where applicable) your Affiliates notify to us in advance.

4.11 Should we discover you are using or “repurposing” our Services and/or Documentation for employees or contractors in excess of the limit of your MyHR Software Subscription we may charge you an amount equivalent to the highest current, per-employee monthly fee, as a 12-month lump sum (irrespective of the timeframe you have been receiving the Services) and an additional consultancy charge of NZD $1,200 plus applicable Sales Tax to cover any investigation and/or remedial costs.

 

5 Taxes

5.1 Unless expressly stated otherwise in a Quote or on our Website (as applicable), all Prices are stated exclusive of Sales Tax.

5.2 With the exception of taxes on our income, you must pay all applicable taxes, duties and levies which may be levied or assessable in connection with the provision of the Services to you, including Sales Taxes. Where we are required by law to collect and/or account for any such tax, duty or levy, you must pay this to us at the same time and by the same means as payment of the applicable Prices are due under these Terms.

5.3 If you are required by law to make any deduction or withholding from any amount paid or payable by you under Our Contract, then that amount will be increased to extent necessary to ensure that, after the making of the deduction or withholding, we receive and keep a net amount equal to the amount which we would have received and retained if the deduction or withholding had not been made.

 

6 Our provision of the Services

6.1 We provide the MyHR Software as a service via an internet browser. In order to access the MyHR Software, you will need your own internet access and computer equipment – we are not responsible for arranging or providing this.

6.2 Our other Services will be provided over the phone and/or by email. We do not provide face-to-face consultation services, unless otherwise agreed. Should this occur additional charges may apply.

6.3 If we are not able to provide your Services within 2 days of the date of your order, we shall endeavour to notify you by email to tell you the likely provision date.

6.4 You acknowledge and agree that we may from time to time introduce different levels of MyHR Software Subscriptions which offer different functionality or features and that, if so, you shall only be able to access the functionality and features included in your then current MyHR Software Subscription.

6.5 In certain cases we may agree (in writing) to make the Services available to some or all of your Affiliates. In this case:

(a) your MyHR Software Subscription will need to include the relevant number of your Affiliates' employees and contractors and the Prices will be calculated accordingly;

(b) you must ensure that your Affiliates comply with your obligations under Our Contract as if they were a party to it; and

(c) where an Affiliate operates in a jurisdiction outside of the Territory, unless we expressly state otherwise, we do not promise or represent that our Services or Documentation will be compliant with or suitable for use under the laws of that jurisdiction or any applicable states within that jurisdiction.

6.6 We may change the nature, details or provision of the MyHR Software, the Services and/or the Documentation at any time and at our sole discretion. Such changes may be required to comply with relevant legislation but do not have to be. We may also cease to make available certain Services (other than the MyHR Software or any Services for which you have prepaid the Price) at any time and without terminating Our Contract.

6.7 If a change we make in the provision of the MyHR Software and/or Services involves action on your part, and you do not take that action, you may not be able to access or receive the Services. This will not relieve you of your obligations to pay the Prices, and we will not be liable to you for any Losses you may incur as a result of your inability to access or receive the Services.

6.8 We will do our best to maintain the MyHR Software and/or Services so that you have constant use, but there will be times when your use may be interrupted (including where this is necessary for maintenance or is due to causes beyond our control). When we are aware of the likelihood of interruptions or down-time, we will tell you in advance.

6.9 We may appoint subcontractors to perform any of the Services or our obligations under Our Contract. We will remain primarily liable to you for any breaches of Our Contract by our subcontractors.

 

7 Consulting Services

7.1 While our HR consultants have relevant training and experience, you acknowledge and agree that:

(a) our Consulting Services will not and do not constitute legal advice, and you must not rely on them as such;

(b) employees (or former employees) may still bring claims even where correct or appropriate processes have been followed;

(c) we can only provide you with advice, guidance or support based on the information you have provided us (which may or may not be correct or complete), and we have no control or visibility over your interactions or oral communications with, or behaviours towards, your employees and contractors;

(d) the extent to which you follow or act on our advice, guidance and support is at your sole discretion; and

(e) any decisions you take in relation to employment processes shall remain your sole responsibility (as will the outcome of those processes),

and accordingly we will not be liable to you for any Losses you or your Affiliates may suffer or incur in relation to any employee or contractor claims brought against you or your Affiliates.

7.2 If you choose not to seek our advice or guidance before managing a situation with an employee, or before commencing a formal human resources or employment relations process with an employee (including a disciplinary process, a restructure, a trial period or probation, a termination or a performance management process), we may determine at (our absolute discretion) whether to provide you with additional or ongoing support for that situation or process.

7.3 If you fail to follow our advice or guidance regarding a particular situation, or deviate from a process that we have recommended, and an employee or employees raise a claim in relation to that situation or process, we may determine at (our absolute discretion) whether to provide you additional or ongoing support with that personal grievance.

7.4 If we decline to provide you support under clause 7.2 or 7.3, or you require support that is outside the scope of our Services, we may refer you to an appropriate third party ("Third Party Adviser"), at your request. If you choose to engage with the Third Party Adviser, your relationship with the Third Party Adviser is governed by the terms of engagement you agree with the Third Party Adviser. We will not be liable for any Losses you or your Affiliates may suffer or incur which arise from that relationship or any advice, support or services provided by the Third Party Adviser.

7.5 Our Recruit+ offering is a specialised fixed price service for all aspects of the recruitment process. We do not charge an additional placement fee for any hires and if you need or wish to hire several of the candidates through a single recruitment campaign, you only pay once for our Service. You will have access to a dedicated recruitment professional who will advise and support you as required on all aspects of the hiring process, but all decision making will remain with you. We do not promise or guarantee that you will find any suitable staff, or that any staff that you choose to hire will perform their role to an acceptable standard and/or for any period of time. Our Price for this Service will be payable, and is non-refundable, irrespective of the outcome of the recruitment process.

 

8 Dissatisfaction with the Services

8.1 Our most important task is to ensure your satisfaction. We will always strive to reach that target. If you are not satisfied with the Services, please tell us at the earliest opportunity:

(a) exactly why you think we have failed;

(b) the date, if relevant, of the failure;

(c) when and how you discovered the failure;

(d) the result of the failure; and

(e) your suggestion as to action we should take to resolve the situation and restore your faith in us.

8.2 To do this, please contact us by email or via the Software.

9.3 You must not use any Services or Documentation in relation to any employees or contractors based outside of the Territory, without our prior written consent.

10 Third Party Products

(a) It is your responsibility to maintain an account, subscription or licence for the Third Party Product with the provider of the Third Party Product ("Third Party Product Provider").

We have no control over this and do not accept any responsibility or liability for any Losses suffered or incurred by you as a result of any such data not being provided, or being provided in a corrupted or incorrect form, to the interface with the MyHR System.

(d) We may, at any time and without prior notice, cease to maintain an interface with a Third Party Product or otherwise cease to exchange data with a Third Party Product.
