TERMS OF SERVICE
Updated 07 March 2021
JoinAgile Candidate Testing System (also referred to as the “Portal”, "Service", or "Offering") is the name of the main Service offered by Dmitri Iarandine on this website.
The terms "JoinAgile", "JoinAgile Initiative", "JoinAgile Training", "I", "we", "us", "our" or any grammatical variation of the preceding terms shall refer to the business identity of Dmitri Iarandine, founder of this Service, professional Agile Coach and Trainer, whereas the terms “you”, “your” or any grammatical variation shall refer to our clients or users of any of our Services including but not restricted to our websites, mobile applications, interactive online skills test systems, or e-mails.
Your use of the Portal or any other services and products offered by JoinAgile is subject to the Terms of Service mentioned in this document, without prejudice to any additional terms which may be part of the agreement specific to the service that you wish to avail. Your agreement with JoinAgile will always include, at a minimum, the Terms of Service set out in this document.
Acceptance of these TERMS OF SERVICE
You are expected to be aware of our Terms of Service prior to making use of our services. Your use of our websites or any other means of communication to interact with us shall be construed as your acceptance of our Terms of Service even if no transaction has taken place.
In order to make use of our services you must agree to the terms laid down in this document. You may not make use of JoinAgile Candidate Testing System, our Portal, or any of our other services if you do not agree to these Terms of Service.
If you require any clarification of these Terms of Service or any other particulars of our Offering to you as a potential User, we welcome you to contact us using any means available on our website(s), or directly by emailing - firstname.lastname@example.org - and expressing the nature of your inquiry or concern.
Provision of the Service by JoinAgile
Our Service is provisioned for the two target groups of Users - the Recruitment Professionals (or Recruiters) and the Independent Candidates (or simply "Candidates").
Conditions under which this Service is provisioned vary slightly depending on the target User group that you fall under, based on the nature of your professional occupation and the interest you have in our Service.
For Recruitment Professionals:
There is no initial fee for evaluating our Service during the currently established trial period. Specific conditions and limitations of the Trial are outlined in the FAQ and on the welcoming screen to our Portal. Conditions of the Free Trial are subject to change at any point, without any notice to you and at our discretion. These changes could be caused by the personal and professional circumstances of the founder of this Service, or any changes to Job Market conditions that are impossible to predict at the moment of updating this TOS.
Upon completion of the Free Trial period, your access to the Service will be suspended, and you will be given an option to establish a Paid subscription to maintain your unhindered access to our Service.
- You are encouraged to get in touch with the founder of this Service at any time before or after expiration of your Free Trial to discuss the currently proposed subscription pricing, or any other options to pay for the Service going forward that might be more suitable for your professional needs.
For Independent Candidates:
Independent Candidates are welcome to subscribe and remain the active members of JoinAgile Competency Testing Community for free and indefinitely;
Upon your subscription, you will be granted one free attempt at passing our main Lean-Agile qualification test - the Lean-Agile Certified Practitioner (LACP) Exam, granting you our own non-accredited and independent Certification if you've passed the test above the required qualification mark;
It is against these Terms of Service to create multiple accounts and User Records to obtain the free initial attempt at passing LACP exam. Even if you succeed at doing that, there is a crawler bot and occasional manual Database inspection efforts that will weed out double-registrations based on your Centificate name, IP address at the time of registration and certain other data. Any identified duplicate registrations will be removed without any notice, and any LACP certifications obtained by the owner of the record will be revoked.
Any additional attempts can be purchased through the Portal interface, using a one-time secure PayPal transaction. Please contact us if you're experiencing any problems with completing this transaction.
Additionally, for any type of Users:
There is currently no intention to remove your User record from our database should you decide to not set up a subscription upon completion of your Free Trial (if Free Trial was applicable to you). This is designed to allow you to return to our Service after a while when you see further need in it, where you could reactivate your User record and retain all the Job Candidate details and data that's been recorded for you to date.
Should you decide to permanently leave the Service and remove any and all of your User registration and Job Candidate data from our Portal, you would be welcome to email us directly - email@example.com - and request permanent deletion of your information, which we'll be happy to accommodate then.
Best efforts will be made to maintain maximum availability of our Service to you, but as we rely on the external web hosting and other Services to provision our own, You acknowledge and agree that JoinAgile may stop (permanently or temporarily) providing the Service (or any features within the offering) with or without notice,
generally at Founder's sole discretion.
In the event of us permanently stopping the Service at any unforeseeable point in future, any balance of your active subscription to our Service will be refunded to "pro rata" based on the time interval you've already paid for.
You acknowledge and agree that while JoinAgile may not limit your use of our Services in any way upon your initial registration, it may do so IF YOUR USE HINDERS with the ability of JoinAgile Training to carry on its operations, or the ability of other Users to use the Service.
JoinAgile and the founder of the Service shall not be responsible for any loss or damage caused by modification of the features, limitation of use of our offering or the discontinuation thereof altogether.
