Effective June 26, 2021
Our User Agreement has been updated.
You agree that by clicking “Join Now”, “Join T4.network”, “Sign Up” or similar, registering, accessing or using our Services (as described below), you are entering into a legally binding contract with Top4You Foundation (even if you are using our Services on behalf of a business). If you do not agree to this contract (“Contract” or “User Agreement”), do not click “Join Now” (or similar) and do not access or otherwise use our Services. If you wish to terminate this Agreement, you may do so at any time by closing your account and not accessing or using our Services.
This Agreement applies to T4.network.com, T4.network-branded applications, T4.Academy, and other T4.network-related websites, applications, communications, and other services offered under this Agreement (“Services”), including offsite collection of data for those Services, such as our advertisements and the “Advertise at T4.network” and “Share at T4.network” plugins. Registered users of our Services are “Members” and unregistered users are “Visitors”.
You are entering into this Agreement with the Top4You Foundation (also referred to as “we” and “us”).
We use the term “Designated Countries” to mean countries in the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland.
This Agreement applies to Members and Visitors.
1.2 Members and visitors
When you register and join the T4.network Service or become a registered user of the Top4You Academy, you become a Member. If you have not registered for our Services, you may access certain features as a “Visitor”.
We may make changes to the Agreement.
2.1 Service Entitlement
Here are some promises you make to us in this Agreement:
You are authorized to enter into this Agreement and you are at least our “minimum age”.
The Services are not intended for use by anyone under the age of 16.
If you choose to use the Services, you agree that:
- you must be the “minimum age” (as described below) or older;
- you have only one T4.network account that is in your real name; and
- you are not already prevented by T4.network from using the Services. Creating an account with false information is a violation of our Terms, including accounts registered in the name of others or by persons under 16 years of age.
“Minimum age” means 16 years of age. However, if the law requires that you be older in order for T4.network to lawfully provide the Services to you without parental consent (including the use of your Personal Information), then the minimum age is such age.
2.2 Your Account
You will keep your password secret.
You will not share an account with anyone else and will follow our rules and the law.
Members are account holders. You agree to: (1) use a secure password and keep it confidential; (2) not transfer any part of your account (e.g., connections); and (3) follow the law and our list of do’s and don’ts and professional community guidelines. You are responsible for everything that happens through your account unless you close it or report abuse.
As between you and others (including your employer), your account belongs to you. However, if the Services were purchased for you by another party (e.g., a Recruiter seat purchased by your employer), the party paying for that service has the right to control access to that paid service and receive reports on your usage; however, they do not have rights to your personal account.
You are meeting your payment obligations and agree that we may store your payment information. You understand that there may be fees and taxes that are added to our prices.
Refunds are subject to our policies.
When you purchase any of our paid services (“Premium Services”), you agree to pay us the applicable fees and taxes, as well as additional terms specific to the paid services. Failure to pay these fees will result in termination of your paid services. You also agree that:
Your purchase may be subject to foreign currency fees or price differences based on location (e.g., exchange rates).
We may store and continue to charge your payment method (e.g., credit card) after the expiration date to avoid interruptions to your Services and to pay for other Services you purchase.
When you purchase a subscription, your payment method will automatically be billed at the beginning of each subscription period for the fees and taxes applicable to that period. To avoid future charges, you should cancel before your renewal date. Learn how to cancel or suspend your premium services.
All of your purchases of Services are subject to T4.network’s refund policy.
We may calculate the taxes you owe based on the billing information you provided at the time of purchase.
You may obtain a copy of your invoice through your T4.network account settings under “Purchase History”.
2.4 Notifications and messages
It is okay for us to provide you with notices and messages through our websites, apps, and contact information. If your contact information is out of date, you may miss important communications.
You agree that we may provide notices and messages to you in the following ways:
- within the Service; or
- to the contact information you provide (e.g., email, cell phone number, physical address).
You agree to keep your contact information up to date.
Please review your settings to control and limit the messages you receive from us.
When you share information about our Services, others may see, copy, and use that information.
Our Services allow you to submit and share information in a variety of ways, including your profile, articles, group posts, links to news articles, job postings, messages and emails. Information and content you share or post may be seen by other members, visitors or others (including outside of the Services). Where we have provided settings, we will respect your choices about who can see content or information (e.g., message content to your addressees, sharing content only with T4.network connections, limiting the visibility of your profile in search engines, or choosing not to notify others of your T4.network profile update). By default, we do not notify your connection network or the public of job search activities. Therefore, if you apply for a job through our service or choose to indicate your interest in a job, by default we will only share it with the job posting.
We are under no obligation to post any information or content on our service and may remove it with or without notice.
3. Rights and Limits

While we may edit your content and make format changes (such as translating or transcribing it, changing its size, layout or file type, or removing metadata), we will not change the meaning of your expression.
Because you own your content and information and we have only non-exclusive rights to it, you may choose to make it available to others, including under the terms of a Creative Commons license.

We cannot always prevent such misuse of our Services, and you agree that we are not responsible for any such misuse. You also acknowledge the risk that you or your organization may be mistakenly associated with content about others if we let connections and followers know that you or your organization was mentioned in the messages. Members have a choice in this feature.

We use the information you provide and data we have about members to make recommendations for connections, content and features that may be useful to you.
