Terms of use

In these terms, 'us' 'we' or 'our' means the Gold Coast Student Jobs Platform located at Job Board Terms, including any subdomains (our website), operated by Gold Coast Education and Training Network Inc ABN 35 036 042 606 trading as Study Gold Coast.

Purpose

Our website is a city-wide platform to consolidate available opportunities specifically relevant to Gold Coast students and graduates (applicants). The website is to allow Gold Coast businesses and organisations (advertisers) to post job vacancies, apprenticeships, placements, traineeships, work experience placements, internships and other arrangements (opportunities) at no cost, to allow applicants to view and apply for those opportunities, and to help facilitate communications between applicants and advertisers.

Your obligations

Our website is to promote opportunities, including employment and career outcomes on the Gold Coast by facilitating introductions between advertisers and applicants.

  • posting opportunities that may be unlawful such as those relating to any pyramid scheme or multi-level marketing scheme (however described), opportunities that require the applicant to pay any money in connection with the hiring process, or opportunities which may contravene relevant workplace laws (including, but not limited to, arrangements which may misrepresent the nature of the relationship between the advertiser and applicant, constitute a sham contracting arrangement, or result in the underpayment of any entitlements which may apply to an applicant under applicable legislation or an industrial instrument);
  • any act that would constitute a breach of either the privacy (including uploading private or personal information without an individual's consent, or marketing products or services to an applicant whose personal information you have obtained through our website) or any other of the legal rights of individuals;
  • promoting or referring to brands, products or services other than those associated with a genuine opportunity you are advertising;
  • posting any unlawful, obscene, defamatory, false or misleading material, using offensive language, harassing, threatening or offending any person, or preventing any other user from using or enjoying the website in any way;
  • attempting to gain unauthorised access to our website or using another person’s name or contact details to register with our website;
  • uploading files that contain viruses that may cause damage to our property or the property of other individuals;
  • falsely stating or otherwise misrepresenting your affiliation with us or our website; or
  • engaging in any other conduct that we consider (in our absolute discretion) breaches these terms or is otherwise inappropriate for the website.

If we allow you to post any information to our website, we have the right to take down this information at our sole discretion and without notice.
