Counselpath will not be liable to the Candidate or third persons for any lost profits, lost data or any damage arising from the Candidate’s use of the Platform or inability to use the Platform. In particular, Counselpath will not be liable for any damage resulting from Candidate’s use of the Services which is contrary to the usual or the intended use of the Platform or damage caused by an unintentional fault. The Candidate accesses and uses the Platform at his/her sole discretion and at his/her own risk. 

To the fullest extent permitted by the law, the Candidate hereby forever discharges Counselpath (and its officers, management board members, employees, agents, legal successors and assigns) from liability on account of each and every past, present and future dispute, claim, conflict, demand, right, obligation, liability, action and cause of action of every kind and nature (including personal injuries and property damage) that has arisen or arises directly or indirectly out of the use of the Platform or that relates directly or indirectly to the Services (including any interactions with other Platform users or connected with any Third-Party Links and Ads).

The new Terms of Use will come into force on the date stated in their content as the effective date. 

If the Candidate fails to terminate the Agreement by the said date, he/she will be deemed to have accepted the Terms of Use in their amended wording. If you fail to file such termination notice, then until the end of the notice period you will be subject to the Terms of Use in their unchanged wording. 

The Privacy Policy and the Terms of Use for Employers constitute an integral part of neither these Terms of Use nor the Agreement. No amendment of the abovementioned documents constitutes an amendment of the Agreement. 


This Agreement and all disputes arising out of or related to this Agreement will be governed by the law of England and Wales.

In the case of Candidates from beyond the European Union, these Terms of Use impose an obligation to submit to arbitration rather than to jury trials or class actions to resolve disputes and also limit the remedies available to such candidates in the event of a dispute. All disputes arising out of or in connection with this Agreement, or the breach, termination or invalidity thereof, will be settled under the Rules of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce by one or more arbitrators appointed in accordance with the said rules. The place of arbitration will be London, UK, if not otherwise agreed by the conflicting Parties. The arbitration procedure will be held in English. The arbitration award will be final and binding upon the Parties. The Parties, their representatives, any other participants and arbitrators are subject to confidentiality obligation with regard to existence, subject matter and result of the arbitration. The arbitrator’s decision will be final and binding. These Terms of Use prescribe settlement of disputes by arbitration only.

Even if the governing law states otherwise, the Candidate waives the right to participate in a class action. If it is allowed under applicable legal provisions, each party agrees that a party may seek claims against the other party only individually and not as the petitioner or a member of a class initiating class action in any intended class action lawsuit.

No arbiter or judge may combine claims of more than one person or otherwise examine any form of class action without the consent of both you and Counselpath.


The rights and obligations resulting from these Terms of Use are governed exclusively by the law of England and Wales.

If in line with relevant provisions of the generally applicable law, within the frames of the Agreement the Candidate has the status of a consumer, then none of the provisions of the Terms of Use limiting his/her rights connected with that are applicable. In such case, the provisions of the generally applicable law referring to such rights of the Candidate as a consumer or related obligations of Counselpath are applicable instead of such provisions of the Terms of Use. 

If any provision of these Terms of Use proves invalid in part or entirely, then the other provisions remain effective, whereas the remaining part of the Terms of Use is to be interpreted in such a manner so as their legal effect and economic implications to the highest extent correspond to those of the invalid provisions.

If Counselpath fails to exercise any of its rights resulting from these Terms of Use, this does not mean that Counselpath has waived such rights. 

Headings of particular sections are for reference purposes only, and are not legally binding. 

The Candidate may not transfer the rights or delegate the obligations resulting from the Terms of Use, including the Agreement, to third persons without prior written consent of Counselpath.

These Terms of Use along with any supplementing documents constitute the entire agreement between the Parties and replace any prior arrangements between the Parties, whether oral or written, referring to the subject matter of these Terms of Use. 

These Terms of Use are applicable to the fullest extent permitted by law.
