3.      ACCESS TO EUROBANK TRADE CLUB

As described above, in order to access Eurobank Trade Club, an invitation must have been sent to You by Us and You must have completed your registration to Eurobank Trade Club (that grants full access to the entirety of the Platform, all sections of Eurobank Trade Portal included) as per Section 1 “Access and registration” of the General Terms.

 

4.      USE OF EUROBANK TRADE CLUB

Within Eurobank Trade Club, Registered Users can access contact information (Business Card Data) for Companies of their interest and exchange Conversations with other Members to set up potential business opportunities between them.

In order to enable this purpose, We have made available the necessary tools that allow Members to engage between them and to access Business Card Data for Companies of their potential interest.

These tools include a private message exchange system that allows Members to engage in Conversations with other Members to potentially set up business opportunities between them, a Matchmaking wall that, for each Member, displays those Companies that may be of their interest given their profile, an Opportunities wall where Members looking for suppliers may publish specific offers or requests for offers in search for a counterparty that may be interested in fulfilling such request and notification alerts.

 

4.1.       MATCHMAKING

Eurobank Trade Club is set up to help Members easily find potentially interesting Companies/Members. In this sense, We have enabled a tool that acts as a Matchmaking system for each Member, that is suggesting Companies that, due to their location, market operations, sector, activity and interests, amongst others, may be of interest to that particular Member/Company. These Matchmaking suggestions are shown in a “Matchmaking” wall within Eurobank Trade Club.

Any suggestions found within the Matchmaking wall are made automatically, using an algorithm that is set up to find potential “matches” for Your Company given the Company’s activity, Your interests and other parameters that You may indicate.

Additionally, You may request tailored Matchmaking for a specific activity, market, sector or location. In this case, the Community Manager will take Your choices into account and tailor the suggestions for You.

Selecting the suggestions shown to You in the Matchmaking wall is a purely automatic process and We have no part in this selection. We cannot warrant that any suggestions made to You via Eurobank Trade Club will suit Your expectations, interests, business plans or otherwise.

We endeavour to offer premium services to Members and, in this spirit, We conduct the corresponding quality and solvency evaluations prior to admitting Members/Companies into Eurobank Trade Club, but these evaluations are based solely on the information provided by the Companies themselves and Our Partner Banks, and on occasion may also include information that is publicly available. We cannot warrant that this information reflects a Company’s real situation, nor that the results of Our evaluations will always reflect the Company’s situation. These evaluations do not substitute legal, financial and business advice, including business plan evaluations and risk assessments.

Our role is to manage Eurobank Trade Club community and provide a means for Companies worldwide to contact each other to set up potential business opportunities, and We shall in no case be liable for any losses or damages of any kind arising out of any engagement made with a Company contacted via Eurobank Trade Club.

 

4.2.       OPPORTUNITIES

In addition to the Matchmaking wall, which suggests potentially interesting Members/Companies to each Member, Eurobank Trade Club offers a functionality that allows Registered Users to publish specific requests for offers, which we call “Opportunities”, to which other Members may respond, offering to fulfil the request.

This functionality allows Registered Users to: (a) publish requests and (b) browse and respond to Opportunities that have been posted by other TCA Members. The requesting Member shall be required to include the following minimum information: (i) product or service that it is interested in obtaining, (ii) delivery location, (iii) timeline, (iv) title, (v) description, (vi) procurement value, (vii) useful documents and/or links, (viii) counterparts profile, (ix) counterparts location, which will be shown to other TCA Members when they browse the Opportunities section.

When a Member is interested in fulfilling an Opportunity posted by another Member, they will engage with such Opportunity via the Platform by clicking on “reply”. Their response will be delivered to the posting Member as a private message within TCA, hence starting a Conversation. This engagement will not be visible to other TCA Members.

Each Member is wholly and solely liable for the contents of the Opportunities that they post, for any promises, warranties, declarations or other binding statements that they make or portray to the requesting Member when engaging with an Opportunity, and for any activities thereafter performed as a result of their engagement.

We expressly disclaim any liability for the contents of the Opportunities posted by Eurobank Trade Club Registered Users or any other TCA Member, any activities related to such Opportunities, any misuse of any Opportunity that is posted within Eurobank Trade Club and any business opportunities or undertakings that arise from a Member responding to an Opportunity posted by another Member. The relationship between Members as a result of any Opportunity posted within the Platform is solely the responsibility of such Members.

As with the Matchmaking functionality, Our role is to manage Eurobank Trade Club community and provide a means for Companies worldwide to contact each other to set up potential business opportunities, and We shall in no case be liable for any losses or damages of any kind arising out of any engagement made with a Member/Company contacted via Eurobank Trade Club.

Notwithstanding the above, We reserve the right to modify, delete or reject any Opportunity posted by a Eurobank Trade Club Registered User that in our opinion does not fulfill the purpose of the Opportunities feature and/or Eurobank Trade Club or which infringes the Terms or may otherwise be considered illegal in any jurisdiction.

 

4.3.       CONVERSATIONS

Registered Users can contact other Members using Our private message exchange system and engage in a Conversation via Eurobank Trade Club. The Content included in these Conversations may be monitored by Our Community Manager in order to ensure that the community guidelines and rules of conduct are observed by all Members.

In this sense, the information that is transmitted to the recipient of a Conversation sent by another Member via Eurobank Trade Club is limited to the Content of the actual message sent and the identification of the Company that the Registered User represents. No personal or identification information will be forwarded to the recipient, unless the sender includes any such information within the Conversation text.

When exchanging or directing Conversations towards other Members, You should be aware that certain Conversations or activities may be restricted. Particularly, We do not allow spamming or advertising within Eurobank Trade Club and We may limit Your activity if We detect that You are engaging in any of these practices.

To understand what is considered spamming and advertising, please take into account the following guidelines for the following types of Conversations:

-        Unique Conversation: personalized Conversation initiated with one (1) Member.

-        Target Campaign: personalized or template Conversation initiated with several Members -between one (1) and twenty (20)- pertaining to relevant Member/Companies with a specific business goal.

-        Partnership Conversation: Conversation between Members/Companies providing the same services.

-        Mass Campaign: template Conversations initiated with more than twenty (20) Members/Companies, both relevant and non-relevant, with a specific business goal.

Eurobank Trade Club has no responsibility or liability for the deletion or failure to store any messages or other communications or other Content maintained or transmitted by Eurobank Trade Club and reserves the rights to mark as “inactive” and archive or delete accounts and/or Content that are inactive for an extended period of time.

 

4.4.       NOTIFICATIONS

Notifications are alert messages sent to a Registered User when a new event of interest for Your Company is published (new message, new matchmaking, new matchmaking from the Community Manager, etc.). These alerts are sent by email (to the email address You provided when registering); optionally they can also be sent on mobile phone if a Registered User has decided so and connected to a mobile channel in the “Mobile notifications” section.

 

4.5.       COMMUNITY MANAGER

The Community Manager has been assigned the role of managing Eurobank Trade Club, which includes removing, adding and modifying information made available on the Platform (particularly Business Card Data, Content and Conversations) and settling or monitoring exchanges and disputes between Registered Users.

For example, following any suspicious or forbidden activity, You may find that Your interaction with other Members and Your ability to engage in Conversations with other Members have been limited, disabled or restricted, or even that Your account has been suspended.

In this sense, any Content submitted/published by You, to/through Eurobank Trade Club, as a Registered User is managed by the Community Manager, who shall be entitled to use such Content as necessary within the purposes of Eurobank Trade Club, as described in the Terms.

Additionally, as indicated above, Conversations may be reviewed or monitored by the Community Manager before each message is forwarded to the recipient. This is only done as part of Our desire to offer Our users the best possible services and quality. This monitorisation merely verifies that Conversations comply with community guidelines and rules of conduct, and does not imply a validation of the contents of the Conversations themselves.

By sending any form of communication, you have granted Us rights and allow Us to use it in anyway deemed necessary. Please make sure you don’t include confidential or infringing materials.

You agree to indemnify Us and hold Us harmless for all damages, losses and costs (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorney fees and costs) related to all third-party claims, charges and investigations caused by: (i) Your failure to comply with these Terms, including, without limitation, Your submission/publishing of Content that violates third-party rights or applicable laws; (ii) any content You submit/publish to/through Eurobank Trade Club, and (iii) any activity in which You engage on or through Eurobank Trade Club.
