We are a career services platform that connects students and employers to democratize the job finding experience in college and beyond.
This Terms of Service applies to your use of the SkillsConnect.in website and the Accura Solutions Ltd. (collectively referred as “SkillsConnect” or “SkillsConnect.in or “the SkillsConnect Service” or “the Service”), as well as your relationship with Acura Solutions Ltd. and Skillsconnect.in.
If you do not agree with these Terms, please discontinue using the Service.
These Terms will change over time. If we make minor changes to the Terms without materially changing your rights, we will post the modified Terms on our website. We may notify you by email, through the SkillsConnect Service, or by presenting you with a new Terms of Service to accept if we make a modification that materially changes your rights. When you use the SkillsConnect Service after a modification is posted, you are telling us that you accept the modified terms.
If you have a written agreement with SkillsConnect that states that it supersedes this Terms of Service (for example if you are a University or Employer Partner), then to the extent there is any conflict between the documents, the provisions in your separate agreement apply.
You need to have an account to use SkillsConnect. You can create an account on SkillsConnect as a student seeking a job or career advice, as an employer looking for exciting new talent, or as a career center professional associated with an academic institution. You agree not to misrepresent any information about yourself in creating or using an account.
To create an Employer Account you may either associate yourself with a current SkillsConnect Employer Partner (“Employer Partner”) and be approved by that employer or create a new Employer Account. Employer Partners do not have access to any student profiles unless they are approved by the student’s University to access student information that the student chooses to share.
When you create a SkillsConnect Employer Account, we request contact information, including email address and telephone number, to provide a point of contact for Universities and administrative staff. We will not use your phone number to send any commercial or marketing messages to you from third parties. You agree to provide accurate and current information and to correct any misrepresentations immediately upon discovery. You agree that SkillsConnect may use your contact information to directly contact you to market additional offerings on SkillsConnect.
SkillsConnect may show you listings of all/other University Partners and you can recruit students from these listed University Partners.
By creating an account on SkillsConnect, all universities will have access to information used to create the account. Once your account has been approved by participating Universities, you will receive student data through our Service. You are prohibited from disclosing or sharing this information with other parties, and agree to keep student data confidential. You agree to handle and maintain collected student data with equivalent or superior standards, including the requirements of the local laws regarding any Student Personal Data you receive from SkillsConnect. You also agree not to use the Service to send spam or other unauthorized communications, and you agree not to use any collected student data for purposes not authorized by SkillsConnect.
Through the use of the Service, you will be able to search and filter student results based on a wide range of criteria. You agree to maintain a fair and equitable recruitment process when selecting student candidates. You also agree not to discriminate based on ethnicity, national origin, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or veteran status as prohibited by law. You have the ability to contact students directly through the Service. By using this Service, you agree not to stalk, defame, bully, harass, abuse, threaten, intimidate, or impersonate any people or entities.
Employer Accounts are administered by designated Account Administrators. If the employer chooses to allow additional individual employees to access the SkillsConnect Service through the Employer Account, you agree that the account administrators are responsible for the use of the Service by those individual employees, including requests related to personal data collected from those individual employees. You acknowledge and agree that SkillsConnect is not responsible for the privacy or security practices of an administrator's organization.
SkillsConnect is excited to offer as many career opportunities to students as possible, including those offered by third party recruiers. However, we do not permit outside services from bulk collecting student data, employer data, job descriptions, or other marketplace information through the use of automated scripts (“scraping”) or similar technologies or methodologies. Third party recruiters are also prohibited from requiring students to create an account on a third-party platform unaffiliated with the company or brand providing the employment role. Any violation of these, or any other Terms, at our discretion, may result in suspension or termination of the account(s) associated with you or your recruitment service.
SkillsConnect does not claim ownership of any Content that you post on or through the Service. By making Your Content available on or through the Service you grant to SkillsConnect a non-exclusive, transferable, sublicensable, worldwide, royalty-free license to use, copy, modify, publicly display, publicly perform and distribute Your Content only in connection with operating and providing the SkillsConnect Service.
You are responsible for Your Content. You represent and warrant that you own Your Content or that you have all rights necessary to grant us a license to use Your Content as described in these Terms.

We reserve the right to suspend or terminate your account(s) for violation of these Terms of Service or any other policies associated with the Services.
While we take steps to protect your data from unauthorized access, security is a team effort. You are responsible for keeping your password secret and secure, and we encourage you to update your password regularly.
By using this Service, you agree not to change or modify the Service to falsely imply that it is associated with another website.

Our Service contains links to third-party websites, apps, services and resources (collectively “Third-Party Services”) that are not under SkillsConnect’s control. We provide these links only as a convenience and are not responsible for the content, products or services that are available from Third-Party Services. You acknowledge sole responsibility and assume all risk arising from your use of any Third-Party Services.
We reserve the right to refuse access to the Service to anyone for any reason at any time. We reserve the right to force forfeiture of any username or account for any reason. We may, but have no obligation to, remove, edit, block, and/or monitor Content or accounts containing Content that we determine in our sole discretion violates these Terms of Service.
SkillsConnect is continually improving its Service, and we may occasionally offer special features or functionality which include additional Terms of Service. If any of the additional Terms conflict with the Terms described below, the additional Terms control.
We respect other people’s rights, and expect you to do the same. If you repeatedly infringe other people’s intellectual property rights, we will disable your account when appropriate.
