1.1 Contract

When you use our Services you agree to all of these terms. Your use of our Services is also subject to our Cookie Policy and our Privacy Policy, which covers how we collect, use, share, and store your personal information. You agree that by clicking “Create Your Account”, “Sign Up” or similar, registering, accessing or using our services (described below), you are agreeing to enter into a legally binding contract with Locumsbook (even if you are using our Services on behalf of a company). If you do not agree to this contract (“Contract” or “User Agreement”), do not click “Sign Up” (or similar) and do not access or otherwise use any of our Services. If you wish to terminate this contract, at any time you can do so by closing your account and no longer accessing or using our Services.


This Contract applies to locumsbook.com, Locumsbook app(s) and other services that state that they are offered under this Contract (“Services”), including the offsite collection of data for those Services, such as our ads and the “Locumsbook” plugins. Registered users of our Services are “Members” and unregistered users are “Visitors”.


You are entering into this Contract with Locumsbook (also referred to as “we” and “us”). Locumsbook Inc. will be the controller of your personal data provided to, or collected by or for, or processed in connection with our Services.

This Contract applies to Members and Visitors.

As a Visitor or Member of our Services, the collection, use and sharing of your personal data is subject to this Privacy Policy (which includes our Cookie Policy and other documents referenced in this Privacy Policy) and updates.

1.2 Members and Visitors

When you register and join the Locumsbook Service, you become a Member. If you have chosen not to register for our Services, you may access certain features as a “Visitor.”

1.3 Change

We may make changes to the Contract.

We may modify this Contract, our Privacy Policy and our Cookies Policy from time to time. If we make material changes to it, we will provide you notice through our Services, or by other means, to provide you the opportunity to review the changes before they become effective. We agree that changes cannot be retroactive. If you object to any changes, you may close your account. Your continued use of our Services after we publish or send a notice about our changes to these terms means that you are consenting to the updated terms as of their effective date.

2. Obligations

2.1 Service Eligibility

Here are some promises that you make to us in this Contract:

You’re eligible to enter into this Contract and you are at least our “Minimum Age.”

The Services are not for use by anyone under the age of 18.

To use the Services, you agree that: (1) you must be the “Minimum Age” (explained below) or older; (2) you will only have one Locumsbook account per phone number, which must be in your real name which can allow you to log in as either an employee or locum; and (3) you are not already restricted by Locumsbook from using the Services. Creating an account with false information is a violation of our terms, including accounts registered on behalf of others or persons under the age of 18.

“Minimum Age” means 18 years old. However, if law requires that you must be older in order for Locumsbook to lawfully provide the Services to you without parental consent (including using of your personal data) then the Minimum Age is such older age.

2.2 Your Account

You will keep your password a 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 strong 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 Dos and Don’ts. You are responsible for anything that happens through your account unless you close it or report misuse.

As between you and others (including your employer), your account belongs to you. However, if the Services were purchased by another party for you to use (e.g. locum recruiter managed by your employer), the party paying for such Service has the right to control access to and get reports on your use of such paid Service; however, they do not have rights to your personal account.

2.3 Subscriptions and Payments

Details regarding the subscription or plan are available on the Platforms at the time of purchase (in beta program). If you purchase a subscription plan, you acknowledge and agree that your subscription will automatically renew and Locumsbook will charge you on a recurring basis until you cancel your subscription plan and such cancellation goes into effect, which may not be until the next billing cycle. These charges to your debit card or debits to your bank account will be made to the payment method chosen by you.

Pausing your subscription does not cancel it. Your subscription will continue to automatically renew after being unpaused. THERE ARE NO REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR PARTIALLY USED BILLING CYCLES UNDER THE APPLICABLE SUBSCRIPTION PLAN. AMOUNTS FOR FUTURE PREPAID UNUSED BILLING CYCLES MAY RESULT IN A PRORATED REFUND OF THE UNUSED BILLING CYCLES, WHICH SHALL BE DETERMINED IN LOCUMSBOOK’S SOLE DISCRETION. Following any cancellation, however, you will continue to have access to the service through the end of your current billing period.

Invoices may be provided to you via electronic mail, unless otherwise specified by Locumsbook. To the extent permitted by law, if you have an unpaid or outstanding invoice or account balance for any Locumsbook service, Locumsbook reserves the right to suspend or terminate your use of that Locumsbook service, including but not limited to those Locumsbook services where you do not have an unpaid invoice or account balance. You waive all claims relating to charges unless claimed within 90 days after the charge.

Any debit card, bank account information, and related billing and payment information that you provide to Locumsbook may be shared by Locumsbook with companies who work on Locumsbook’s behalf, such as payment processors and/or debit agencies, for the purposes of verifying your account, checking debit, effecting payment to Locumsbook, and servicing your account. Locumsbook may also provide information in response to valid legal process, such as subpoenas, search warrants and court orders, or to establish or exercise its legal rights or defend against legal claims. Locumsbook may obtain updated payment information for credit and debit cards through payment card networks, card issuers or other third party sources. Locumsbook may use the updated card and bank account information to charge amounts you owe. Locumsbook shall not be liable for any use or disclosure of such information by such third parties. If your Locumsbook account has a debit card or bank account on file for one Locumsbook service, we will charge that same payment method for other purchases unless otherwise indicated by you.

Change of Address: If you have provided a billing address to us, and you change such billing address from an address within Zimbabwe to an address outside Zimbabwe, or from an address outside of Zimbabwe to an address inside Zimbabwe, you will continue to be bound by this Agreement with the same Locumsbook party for the remainder of the calendar month in which you made the change. Beginning on the first day of the next calendar month, you hereby agree that you will be bound by this Agreement with the applicable Locumsbook party identified in the first paragraph of this Agreement with respect to such new territory. If your Locumsbook account has a debit card or other payment method on file, such as bank account information, Locumsbook may charge that payment method for any products or services you order, and for any other outstanding payments, including to correct billing errors.


If you are located in Zimbabwe, you shall pay all charges in US dollars or otherwise stated. This choice of currencies is subject to Locumsbook’s approval, which may be withheld in Locumsbook’s sole discretion.


Charges are exclusive of all taxes and VAT. You are responsible for all taxes as applicable and appropriate. You are responsible for paying (y) all taxes and government charges, and (z) reasonable expenses and attorney fees Locumsbook incurs collecting late amounts. All withholding tax remittances to the government are your sole responsibility and Locumsbook shall have no liability whatsoever therefore.


Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, Locumsbook may offer refunds for Locumsbook services for a period of four (3) months from the date of purchase. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Locumsbook will not provide refunds in case of abuse of our policies, and any and all refunds are ultimately at the sole discretion of Locumsbook.You agree to pay (i) penalties for late payment as per contemporaneous Zimbawean Reserve Bank interest rates plus 10%, or the maximum interest permitted by law, whichever is lower, and (ii) a statutory lump-sum indemnity for recovery cost, if provided for under applicable laws, and (iii) any reasonable expenses and attorney fees Locumsbook incurs collecting late payments.

2.4 Communications through Locumsbook

You’re okay with us providing notices and messages to you through our website, app(s), and contact information. If your contact information is out of date, you may miss out on important notices. You agree that we will provide notices and messages to you in the following ways: (1) within the Service, or (2) sent to the contact information you provided us (e.g., email, mobile number, physical address). You agree to keep your contact information up to date. Please review your settings to control messages you receive from us.

You may receive messages, emails, notifications corresponding with your or a Job Seeker’s activity on or use of the platforms. In all cases, such messages or notifications are provided solely as a courtesy, and you should not rely on them. For example, if you wish to interview a Job Seeker, it is your responsibility to follow up with the Job Seeker separately to ensure they know about the interview, do not rely on notifications through Locumsbook Platforms. Locumsbook disclaims all warranties with regards to the transmission or storage of such courtesy notices, does not guarantee their delivery or receipt, and does not guarantee the date or time at which they may be sent. In the event a message being sent is intended for a closed account, these messages will not be deliverable.

Locumsbook may mask or hide contact information, such as phone numbers and email addresses, and substitute it with an alias. For example, Locumsbook may mask Job Seeker contact information from resumes or applications. Locumsbook may also mask your email address or phone number, and Job Seekers may see an alias email address or phone number when they communicate with you. You agree to a Job Seeker contacting you from a masked phone number or email. If you contact a Job Seeker from a masked phone number and you do not leave your contact information, after the masked number expires, the Job Seeker may not be able to contact you by phone unless you have provided your actual contact information to them. Once a Job Seeker has your contact info, you agree that Locumsbook is not responsible or liable for the manner in which they may use the info. Sending messages to Locumsbook aliased contacts on the platforms shall be limited to the purpose of hiring for your Job Listing.

2.5 Sharing ,rates ,salary and other information

When you share information on our Services, others can see, copy and use that information. Our Services allow sharing of information in many ways, such as your profile, articles, links to news articles, locum job postings, medicine transfer, messages and mails. Information and job content that you share or post may be seen by other Members, Visitors or others (including off of the Services). Where we have made settings available, we will honor the choices you make about who can see content or information (e.g., locum job content to your addressees, sharing content only to Locumsbook connections, restricting your profile visibility from search engines, or opting not to notify others of your Locumsbook profile update). For locum job searching activities, we default to not notifying your connections network or the public. So, if you apply for a locum job through our Service or opt to signal that you are interested in a locum job, our default is to share it only with the locum job poster/ employer.*We are not obligated to publish any information or content on our Service and can remove it with or without notice*.

Job matches are recommendations which may be presented to both you as an Employer and to Job Seekers in various formats on the platforms. For example, Locumsbook may recommend resumes or profiles which match Job Ads you have posted, or recommend Job Ads to Job applicants which are similar to jobs to which they have recently applied. Job matching is provided to you on a beta basis and is subject to our Beta Program.

To generate matches, Locumsbook uses data collected through our platforms from both Employers and Job Seekers. This includes Job Ads, resume, application materials, and user activity (such as searches run and Job Ads clicked on and applied to). You agree and consent that Locumsbook may use this information to present potential matches to you and to potential Job Seekers.

Locumsbook may provide some information and content to users for informational purposes only. For example, Locumsbook may provide Job Seekers with data regarding estimated salaries for a given Job post, number of applications to a Job Listing. All such figures provided by Locumsbook are estimates given for informational purposes only, may come from a third party, and they are subject to change or varying levels of accuracy. If you are participating in the Locumsbook Ads and your Sponsored Job advertising budget is on a per-apply basis, you will be charged based on Locumsbook’s determination of Apply count as reflected in your employer dashboard and not based on the number of applies that may be provided to Job Seekers for informational purposes only. Locumsbook may add labels or badges to Job Ads – such as specialties, benefits, etc - based on data contained within the job description. These are for informational purposes only and Locumsbook does not guarantee the accuracy of any label or badge. Locumsbook may also include salary estimations on pages other than Job Listings on the Platforms.

Please note that all salary figures are approximations based upon multiple third party submissions to Locumsbook, including from Locumsbook affiliates. These figures are given to Locumsbook users for the purpose of generalized comparison only. Locumsbook may also provide data regarding impressions in relation to your Job Ad. Such figures are provided for informational purposes only, are subject to change at any time, and Locumsbook does not guarantee their accuracy. Locumsbook reserves the right to change the method of measuring such figures at any time.


*You are responsible for ensuring that your selection criteria are job-related, that you do not pose “disability-related inquiries” or medical inquiries in violation of the law, and that you do not screen out people with disabilities or members of any protected category under the law. You further acknowledge that you are responsible for offering alternative methods of screening, if so required by the Zimbabweans with Disabilities Act or any similar law. You are responsible for clearly indicating that reasonable accommodations are available, engaging with and responding to any requests for accommodation, and providing information about how to request an accommodation to Job Seekers if it’s a stay away job.*

You agree to indemnify Locumsbook for any and all claims arising out of your use of a screening tool, including any claims that any screening tool does not comply with the Zimbabweans with Disabilities Act or similar law, or that your use of any screening tool results in a “disparate impact.”

Advertising on Locumsbook (Web & Apps)

Advertising you job may be measured by clicks/RSVPs/applications/impressions, or a subscription or platform fee. Charges are solely based on Locumsbook’s measurements (such as click count). Locumsbook’s measurements (such as click count) shall be binding. Locumsbook’s measurements may be derived from data from third-party vendors.

3. Rights and Limits

We’ll honor the choices you make about who gets to see your information and content, including how it can be used for ads. As between you and Locumsbook, you own the content and information that you submit or post to the Services, and you are only granting Locumsbook and our affiliates the following non-exclusive license:

A worldwide, transferable and sublicensable right to use, copy, modify, distribute, publish and process, information and content that you provide through our Services and the services of others, without any further consent, notice and/or compensation to you or others. These rights are limited in the following ways:

You can end this license for specific content by deleting such content from the Services, or generally by closing your account, except (a) to the extent you shared it with others as part of the Service and they copied, re-shared it or stored it and (b) for the reasonable time it takes to remove from backup and other systems.

If you use a Service feature, we may mention that with your name or photo to promote that feature within our Services, subject to your settings. We will get your consent if we want to give others the right to publish your content beyond the Services. However, if you choose to publicly share your post, we will enable a feature that allows other Members to embed that public post onto third-party services, and we enable search engines to make that public content findable though their services. While we may edit and make format changes to your content (such as translating or transcribing it, modifying the size, layout or file type or removing metadata), we will not modify the meaning of your expression. You and Locumsbook agree that if content includes personal data, it is subject to our Privacy Policy. You and Locumsbook agree that we may access, store, process and use any information and personal data that you provide in accordance with, the terms of the Privacy Policy and your choices (including settings).

By submitting suggestions or other feedback regarding our Services to Locumsbook, you agree that Locumsbook can use and share (but does not have to) such feedback for any purpose without compensation to you.

You promise to only provide information and content that you have the right to share, and that your Locumsbook profile will be truthful. You agree to only provide content or information that does not violate the law nor anyone’s rights. You also agree that your profile information will be truthful. Locumsbook may be required by law to remove certain information or content.

Locumsbook is not a storage service. You agree that we have no obligation to store, maintain or provide you a copy of any content or information that you or others provide, except to the extent required by applicable law and as noted in our Privacy Policy.

3.3 Employers ,Job seekers ,Other Content, Sites and Apps

Your use of others’ content and information posted on our Services, is at your own risk.

Others may offer their own products and services through our Services, and we aren’t responsible for those third-party activities. By using the Services, you may encounter content or information that might be inaccurate, incomplete, delayed, misleading, illegal, offensive or otherwise harmful. Locumsbook generally does not review content provided by our Members or others. You agree that we are not responsible for others’ (including other Members’) content or information. We cannot always prevent this 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 when we let connections know you or your organization were mentioned in the news. Members have choices about this feature (eg, medicine transfer which is by no means a touting feature but a transfer of medicines about to expire or which are not being utilized by an institution to other centers that use the medicines through a bidding system. It may be subject to tax regulations.)

Locumsbook helps connect Members offering their services (locuming) with Members seeking services (employers). Locumsbook does not perform nor employs individuals to perform these services. You must be at least 18 years of age to offer, perform or procure these services. You acknowledge that Locumsbook does not supervise, direct, control or monitor Members in the performance of these services and agree that (1) Locumsbook is not responsible for the offering, performance or procurement of these services, (2) Locumsbook does not endorse any particular Member’s offered services, and (3) nothing shall create an employment, agency, or joint venture relationship between Locumsbook and any Member offering services. If you are a Member offering services, you represent and warrant that you have all the required licenses and will provide services consistent with the relevant profession.

Similarly, Locumsbook may help you register for and/or attend events organized by Members and connect with other Members who are attendees at such events. You agree that (1) Locumsbook is not responsible for the conduct of any of the Members or other attendees at such events, (2) Locumsbook does not endorse any particular event listed on our Services, (3) Locumsbook does not review and/or vet any of these events, and (4) that you will adhere to these terms and conditions that apply to such events.

You agree that Locumsbook may reject or remove any Job post or any questions for Job applicants for any or no reason. For example, Locumsbook may remove any Job post or question that directly or indirectly discriminates against Job applicants. Direct discrimination means, for example, that a Job post, requirement, or question specifically makes clear that only Job Seekers matching a certain criteria are wanted, thereby excluding others because of, for example, their gender, race, age or disability. Indirect discrimination means, for example, that a Job post, requirement, or question implicitly excludes certain classes of Job Seekers by making it impossible for them to qualify for the job requirements. You understand and agree that it is your responsibility to refrain from posting any Job, requirement, or question that directly or indirectly discriminates against Job Seekers or otherwise violates applicable law. You understand and agree that you are responsible for ensuring that your Job post requirements and criteria are job-related and in compliance with applicable law. Locumsbook does not guarantee delivery, your receipt of the Job applicants’s notifications or application materials, or that there will be no mistakes in the transmission or storage of the data. You are solely responsible for checking your Employer dashboard on the chatbot and web to view job applications and other information. Any other notifications, such as emails, you may receive about applications or other activities, are provided solely as a courtesy to you and you should not rely on them.

In the event a message being sent is intended for a closed account, these messages will not be deliverable. If you do not feel comfortable sending a message, such as an offer letter, to a Job applicant through Locumsbook’s functions, do not use the Locumsbook’s functions and please contact the Job Seeker via another method. When using the Locumsbook platform, Locumsbook will attempt to send applications to the contact information provided to Locumsbook by you, however, Locumsbook has no ability to verify the contact information provided by you. In the event you provide incorrect contact information, it shall be your responsibility to correct, appropriately respond, or take any steps necessary to protect the privacy of Job applicants, and you indemnify Locumsbook for any damages resulting therefrom.

It is ultimately the Employer’s responsibility to confirm whether any interviews were scheduled, or to reschedule or cancel interviews if necessary. The decision of who to interview is decided solely by the Employer, who can choose to interview any Job Seeker at any time, and by scheduling such interviews, Locumsbook does not warrant that a Job Seeker is qualified, meets the criteria the Employer has set, or that the information provided by the Job Seeker to Locumsbook is accurate. Locumsbook candidate management tools are intended to allow Employers to more efficiently connect with Job Seekers as they determine, and the sole responsibility for the content of any screening information, any decision to proceed or not proceed with interview or offers, any issues arising from an acceptance or denial of employment, and any other issues arising from the use of candidate management tools is solely with the Employer. By using this and other candidate management tools, you acknowledge and agree that Locumsbook is not procuring employees for Employers or procuring opportunities to work for Job Seekers, and that Locumsbook does not act as your employment agency by offering these candidate management tools.

When you view, send, take action on, make a decision regarding, store, or receive materials (including Job posts, resumes, applications and messages) through or using the platform Locumsbook may, for any purpose, use any data of such materials or action for data analysis, quality control, or to refine the Site or any other Locumsbook product or service (including to provide better search results and other Job Posts for Job Seekers and Employers), whether via automated means or otherwise. Locumsbook may also inform the Job Seeker of your actions or activity related to such materials through or using the platform. For example, Locumsbook may notify the Job Seeker about your activity or action related to a Job Ad (such as pausing or closing it), or Job Seeker’s application or Resume (for example, that you viewed or responded to it, or that you made a decision with respect to it). You hereby consent to Locumsbook informing the Job Seeker about such actions and activities.

3.4 Limits

We have the right to limit how you connect and interact on our Services. Locumsbook reserves the right to limit your use of the Services, including the number of your connections and your ability to contact other Members. Locumsbook reserves the right to restrict, suspend, or terminate your account if you breach this Contract or the law or are misusing the Services (e.g., violating any of the Dos and Don’ts).

3.5 Intellectual Property Rights

We’re providing you notice about our intellectual property rights. Locumsbook reserves all of its intellectual property rights in the Services. Trademarks and logos used in connection with the Services are the trademarks of their respective owners. Locumsbook logos and other Locumsbook trademarks, service marks, graphics and logos used for our Services are trademarks or registered trademarks of Locumsbook.

3.6 Automated Processing

We use data and information about you to make relevant suggestions to you and others. We use the information and data that you provide and that we have about Members to make recommendations for connections, content and features that may be useful to you. For example, we use data and information about you to recommend locum jobs to you and you to employers. Keeping your profile accurate and up to date helps us to make these recommendations more accurate and relevant.

3.7 Locumsbook Ads Program Terms

You use the Ads Program when you advertise with Locumsbook by posting, providing, submitting, using, editing, claiming, or paying for any advertisement (“Ad”) for publication on or through Locumsbook. Ads may be posted directly via the platforms. By posting Ads and using the Ads Program, you agree to Locumsbook terms of service(the “Agreement”), including these Locumsbook Ads Program Terms (“LAP Terms”). Locumsbook may update the Ads Program or these LAP Terms at any time without liability, and your use of the Ads Program after notice that these LAP Terms have changed indicates acceptance of the updated LAP Terms.

Ad Publishing

Ads may promote job posting of open employment positions (“Jobs” or “Job Ads”), hiring events or job fairs, both online or in-person, or an Employer’s workplace generally. Ads are User Content under the Agreement, and you are granting Locumsbook, its affiliates, and sublicensees a license to use your Ads and associated data, and to display, publish, reformat, display a snippet or portion of, and host (but not change the content of) your Ads in any way Locumsbook or its affiliates or sublicensees see fit, including due to technical limitations.

Ads may appear on any page, content, service, device, screen, app, or property chosen by Locumsbook in its sole discretion, whether provided by Locumsbook as part of the Locumsbook platforms, or provided by a third party (“Other Sites”). Locumsbook has limited control over Other Sites, including their nature, content, appearance, and Ad display, and you accept any related risks of publication. Other Sites may collect or receive performance information about your Ad.

Target audience membership is based partly on information and criteria provided by the Employer, for example information provided in the Ad, but the composition of each target audience on the platforms, and the frequency of publication to that audience, are determined by Locumsbook in its sole discretion. Locumsbook may have limited or no control over the display of Ads on Other Sites, including their audiences. From time to time Locumsbook may add labels (such as “Urgent”, “Urgently Hiring”, “Ad”, “Paid”, “Promoted”, or “Sponsored”) when publishing an Ad. Locumsbook reserves the right to add, change, or remove labels at any time. Locumsbook may display an estimate of the compensation associated with any Job Ad. If you do not want an estimate to be shown, you must provide Locumsbook with the actual compensation.

Locumsbook does not guarantee reach, performance, placement, or distribution of Ads, all of which may vary depending on Locumsbook’s consideration of various factors, such as supply and demand, industry, type of role, and sponsorship. The distribution, placement, positioning, size, and location of Ads are determined by Locumsbook in its sole discretion. You agree that Locumsbook has no obligation to accept, host, or publish your Ad. That decision is entirely Locumsbook’s in its sole discretion. Locumsbook may reject or remove any Ad for any or no reason without notice. Locumsbook may also pause Ad campaigns without notice. For examples of why Job Ads from Employers may be rejected, refer to Locumsbook Job Posting clauses.

Locumsbook further reserves the right to include or reject any or all Job Ads from a job board. Generally, job boards may only post Job Ads on their own behalf as an Employer. A job board may only post Job Ads on its clients’ behalf. Attempts to violate the Guidelines may result in limiting or disabling your account. The determination as to whether you are a job board is made by Locumsbook in its sole discretion, and such decision is binding. Locumsbook further reserves the right to reject any Job Ads which advertise staffing opportunities or platforms rather than jobs.You acknowledge that inclusion of Ads that violate these LAP Terms or Locumsbook policies or standards may harm Locumsbook and its users. Although Locumsbook may indicate why an Ad has been removed, we cannot give every reason why, and we always retain the right to remove any Ad if we feel it is in the interest of users or Locumsbook. The Locumsbook team responsible for maintaining the quality of the Site is independent, and its decisions are final and not subject to review.

Please note that Locumsbook will require an Ad to be sponsored, or limit the number of free Ads you are allowed to post, for any or no reason in Locumsbook’s sole discretion, including to benefit Job Seekers, to verify the legitimacy of the Ad or the Employer, to prevent abuse of the free to post system, or to improve the platforms. For example, sponsorship may be required for identical jobs posted in multiple locations, jobs re-posted after an initial time period, jobs that have reached the free Ad time limit on the platforms, jobs posted with a confidential or generic company name, jobs that are commission-only, hard-to-fill jobs, or jobs posted by a staffing agency, recruitment process outsourcer, or other recruitment-based company. Locumsbook Hiring Events may also require a minimum Ad budget.

Performance, cost, budget, and other data related to your unclaimed indexed Job Ad on the Site is available to anyone who claims the Job Ad or feed. It is your responsibility to claim your Job Ads and feeds, and to alert Locumsbook in case of an inaccuracy.

For Locumsbook Hiring Events: When you post a Locumsbook Hiring Event, you are asking Locumsbook to manage the Ad campaign, distributing its budget among our different pricing models in our sole discretion. You will be charged in accordance with the selected pricing model(s) and any applicable subscription fee. Posting an Locumsbook Hiring Event may require a minimum advertising budget. You are also asking Locumsbook to send emails or text messages related to your listing to users who RSVP to your listing event, such as in case of event cancellation, though delivery is not guaranteed. You are solely responsible for all aspects of your hiring event, whether participating or responding, including your Ad and hiring process, the advert’s timing exclusive to Locumsbook, location, and attendance, signage, documentation, reviewing Job Seeker qualifications, verifying information, screening applicants, and responding to other requests.

Ad Sponsorship

An Ad can be sponsored using tools on the platforms, or through a campaign, including Sponsored Jobs. “Sponsor” means you are paying Locumsbook to advertise and publish the Ad, and you are requesting that Locumsbook manage your Ad campaign using automated tools for Ad placement and bid optimization, for exposure and visibility on the platforms. This management is in Locumsbook’s sole discretion and is provided without warranty as to placement or visibility of any Ad. Sponsorship is not a guarantee that the Ad will be published at any particular time or place, or displayed more prominently or frequently than other Ads. Sponsorship means Locumsbook exercising its judgment and discretion in publishing the Ad, to achieve what Locumsbook determines is the most appropriate visibility for the Ad and budget.

The price to sponsor an Ad is measured by user activity, such as impressions, clicks, Started RSVPs, RSVPS, or Started Applications. You are not buying these clicks or other actions themselves; they are only different ways to measure the advertising service Locumsbook provides. Prices vary based on many factors, including supply and demand of Ads, impressions, clicks, Started RSVPs, RSVPs, Started Applications, Applications, internet traffic, time of day or year, job title, and job location.Charges are solely based on Locumsbook’s measurements of user activity, including impressions, clicks, Started RSVPs, RSVPs or Started Applications. Locumsbook’s measurements of such activity shall be binding. I Locumsbook’s measurements may include and rely on data from third parties, including vendors and Other Sites, over which Locumsbook has limited control or knowledge.

You agree that Locumsbook has no obligation to accept, host, or publish your Ad. That decision is entirely Locumsbook’s in its sole discretion, regardless of sponsorship. Locumsbook may reject or remove any Ad for any or no reason without notice. Once removed, an Ad does not receive impressions, clicks, Started RSVPs, RSVPs, Started Applications, or Applications.

Budget and Pricing Models

Ad campaigns can be sponsored under different pricing models. Each sponsored Ad will incur a charge upon the associated user action, until its budget is depleted or you pause or close the Ad. For example, one Job Ad campaign may be charged per click/ daily budget, while another campaign may be charged per Started Application. This activity may happen on the Locumsbook platforms. Pricing is indicated on the platforms. When you start, edit, or change a sponsored Job Ad campaign or plan, the pricing models available to you may vary. Locumsbook reserves the right to offer different pricing models at different times in different circumstances, in limited quantities, in limited locations, and for a limited time, or to set any pricing model as default. Prices and pricing models may vary between different Ads, or between the same Ad posted at different times or locations (such as when a campaign is closed and later reopened). If you do not select a pricing model for a sponsored Ad campaign, Locumsbook may select one.

It is your responsibility to monitor your Ad campaigns, select the appropriate pricing model and budget for each campaign, and manage their budgets. You can pause, unpause, or close your Ad campaign at any time. A budget or spending limit you set for one Ad campaign is for that type of campaign only, and does not limit how much you will spend on other campaigns or other services. For example, the budget and limits for Pay Per Started Application campaigns will not apply to a Pay Per Click campaign. If your Order does not contain an end date, your campaign will run, and you will continue to be billed, until you contact Locumsbook to cancel. Locumsbook may provide budget recommendations and performance estimates for a given budget (such as expected visibility or clicks), or other predictions related to your Ad. This data is provided “as is,” without warranty, and does not guarantee performance or visibility, or interaction with your Ad or job.

Pricing Models

Pay Per Impression. You will be charged based on impression count. An impression generally occurs when your Ad appears on a page or screen which has been presented to a user. Delivery of an impression does not guarantee any level of viewership of your Ad or interaction with your job. Impression data may rely on third parties like Other Sites, who may measure impressions differently from each other. Charges are solely based on Locumsbook’s impression measurements. Locumsbook’s impression count shall be binding. Pay Per Click, also known as Daily Budget. You will be charged based on click count. Clicks can be on Ads or on other content such as messages and notifications. Your dashboard will reflect the total click count. Charges are solely based on Locumsbook’s click count. Locumsbook’s click count shall be binding.

Pay Per Started RSVP. You will be charged when a user takes the first step to RSVP to your Hiring Event (a “Started RSVP”), including clicking on a button or link to start or continue an RSVP. A Started RSVP is considered complete even if the user does not proceed further, and does not guarantee they will complete an RSVP or attend a Hiring Event. Charges are solely based on Locumsbook’s Started RSVP measurements. Locumsbook’s Started RSVP count shall be binding. Pay Per RSVP. You will be charged for each RSVP to your Hiring Event. An RSVP is defined as a user completing the online RSVP form agreeing to attend your Event. An RSVP does not guarantee that a Job Seeker will attend your Event. Charges are solely based on Locumsbook’s RSVP measurements. Locumsbook’s RSVP count shall be binding.

Pay Per Started Application. You will be charged when a user takes the first step of applying to your job (a “Started Application”). A Started Application includes: 1) a click on a button or link to start or continue an application; 2) interacting with a chatbot, QR code, or other method to start or continue an application; and 3) a click on a button or link to schedule an interview. A Started Application is considered complete even if the user does not proceed further, and does not guarantee they will complete an application. Charges are solely based on Locumsbook’s Started Application measurements. Locumsbook’s Started Application count shall be binding.

Billing and Payment for Ads

Locumsbook may charge the debit card, or bank account information on file for your account. You will be charged upon the earlier of your Ad campaign spending $2.00 or more. If you previously sponsored Pay Per Click/ Daily budget Ads on the same account, you may also be charged once your Job Ad campaign spends $2.00. For an Ad campaign, or the purchase of products or services of more than $8 per month, you may be charged multiple times a month. If you do not provide a payment method for a Sponsored Job campaign, the campaign will not begin and your Ad will not be visible. Invoices may be provided to you via electronic mail or as communicated by Locumsbook to suit client preference. Your payment must be in accordance with the Payment policies aforementioned in the Agreement. You waive all claims relating to charges unless claimed within 90 days after the charge. You are responsible for paying all expenses and attorney fees Locumsbook incurs collecting late amounts. Refunds (if any) are in accordance with the Refunds section of the Agreement. If you are removed from Locumsbook, but have previously spent on Locumsbook, you are not entitled to a refund of previously spent amounts.

Charges are exclusive of all taxes, including VAT. You are responsible for all taxes and government charges as applicable and appropriate. All withholding tax remittances to the government are your sole responsibility and Locumsbook shall have no liability whatsoever therefor. Your debit card, bank account, and related billing and payment information may be shared by Locumsbook with companies who work on Locumsbook’s behalf, such as payment processors or debit agencies, for the purposes of checking debit, effecting payment to Locumsbook, and servicing your account. Locumsbook may also provide information in response to valid legal process, such as subpoenas, search warrants and court orders, or to establish or exercise its legal rights or defend against legal claims. Locumsbook shall not be liable for any use or disclosure of such information.

Locumsbook reserves the right in its sole discretion to terminate accounts suspected of such activity without notice, and to take corresponding legal action.

Locumsbook may choose not to accept any Ads for any or no reason. Locumsbook further reserves the right to disable or terminate any Employer’s account, for any or no reason, without notice.

Demographic survey

When Job Seekers apply or RSVP to your job posting, Locumsbook may give them the opportunity to provide certain demographic information, such as race and ethnicity, gender, age, and disability status etc (“demographic data”). This Locumsbook demographic data survey is separate from any voluntary self-identification questions provided by Employers. By using the Program, you agree that Locumsbook may collect demographic data from Job Seekers applying to your job listing using Locumsbook’s demographic survey, and that Locumsbook may use the information from that survey to evaluate and improve our products.

We will show you ads called sponsored content which look similar to non-sponsored content, except that they are labeled as advertising (e.g., as “ad” or “sponsored”). If you take a social action (such as like, comment or share) on these ads, your action is associated with your name and viewable by others, including the advertiser. Subject to your settings, if you take a social action on the Locumsbook Services, that action may be mentioned with related ads.

This does not opt you out of receiving advertising; you will continue to get other ads by advertisers not listed with these self regulatory tools. You can also opt-out specifically from our uses of certain categories of data to show you more relevant ads. For Visitors, the setting is here.

Info to Ad Providers

We do not share your personal data with any third-party advertisers or ad networks except for: (i) hashed IDs or device identifiers (to the extent they are personal data in some countries); (ii) with your separate permission (e.g., in a lead generation form) or (iii) data already visible to any users of the Services (e.g., profile). However, if you view or click on an ad on or off our Services, the ad provider will get a signal that someone visited the page that displayed the ad, and they may, through the use of mechanisms such as cookies, determine it is you. Advertising partners can associate personal data collected by the advertiser directly from you with hashed IDs or device identifiers received from us. In such instances, we seek to contractually require such advertising partners to obtain your explicit, opt-in consent before doing so.

Locumsbook Cookies Policy

Effective April 19, 2020

At Locumsbook, we believe in being clear and open about how we collect and use data related to you. This Cookie Policy applies to any Locumsbook product or service that links to this policy or incorporates it by reference. We use cookies and similar technologies to collect and use data as part of our Services as defined in our Privacy Policy (“Services”) and which includes our sites, communications, mobile applications and off-site Services, such as our ad services ‘’Locumsbook” plugins or tags. In the spirit of transparency, this policy provides detailed information about how and when we use these technologies.

By continuing to visit or use our Services, you are agreeing to the use of cookies and similar technologies for the purposes described in this policy.

What technologies are used?

Type of technology


Cookies: A cookie is a small file placed onto your device that enables Locumsbook features and functionality. Any browser visiting our sites may receive cookies from us or cookies from third parties such as our customers, partners or service providers. We or third parties may also place cookies in your browser when you visit non- Locumsbook sites that display ads, host our plugins or tags

We use two types of cookies: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie may help us recognize you as an existing user, so it’s easier to return to Locumsbook or interact with our Services without signing in again. A persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read by Locumsbook when you return to one of our sites or a partner site that uses our Services (for example, sites that use our sharing or job application buttons). Session cookies last only as long as the session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).

Pixels: A pixel is a tiny image that may be found within web pages and emails, requiring a call (which provides device and visit information) to our servers in order for the pixel to be rendered in those web pages and emails. We use pixels to learn more about your interactions with email content or web content, such as whether you interacted with ads or posts. Pixels can also enable us and third parties to place cookies on your browser. Local storage: Local storage enables a website or application to store information locally on your device(s). Local storage may be used to improve the LinkedIn experience, for example, by enabling features, remembering your preferences and speeding up site functionality. Other similar technologies: We also use other tracking technologies, such as mobile advertising IDs and tags for similar purposes as described in this Cookie Policy. References to similar technologies in this policy includes pixels, local storage, and other tracking technologies. Our cookie table lists cookies and similar technologies that are used as part of our Services. Please note that the names of cookies and similar technologies may change over time.

What are these technologies used for?

Below we describe the purposes for which we use these technologies.



Authentication: We use cookies and similar technologies to recognize you when you visit our Services.

If you’re signed into Locumsbook, these technologies help us show you the right information and personalize your experience in line with your settings. For example, cookies enable Locumsbook to identify you and verify your account.

Security: We use cookies and similar technologies to make your interactions with our Services faster and more secure.

For example, we use cookies to enable and support our security features, keep your account safe and to help us detect malicious activity and violations of our User Agreement.

Preferences, features and services: We use cookies and similar technologies to enable the functionality of our Services, such as helping you to fill out forms on our Services more easily and providing you with features, insights and customized content in conjunction with our plugins. We also use these technologies to remember information about your browser and your preferences.

For example, cookies can tell us which language you prefer and what your communications preferences are. We may also use local storage to speed up site functionality.

Customized content: We use cookies and similar technologies to customize your experience on our Services.

For example, we may use cookies to remember previous searches so that when you return to our services, we can offer additional information that relates to your previous search.

Plugins on and off Locumsbook: We use cookies and similar technologies to enable Locumsbook plugins both on and off the Locumsbook site.

Our plugins use cookies and other technologies to provide analytics and recognize you on Locumsbook and third-party sites. If you interact with a plugin, the plugin will use cookies to identify you and initiate your request to apply.

You can learn more about plugins in our Privacy Policy.

Advertising: Cookies and similar technologies help us show relevant advertising to you more effectively, both on and off our Services and to measure the performance of such ads. We use these technologies to learn whether content has been shown to you or whether someone who was presented with an ad later came back and took an action (e.g., downloaded a white paper or made a purchase) on another site. Similarly, our partners or service providers may use these technologies to determine whether we’ve shown an ad or a post and how it performed or provide us with information about how you interact with ads.

We may also work with our customers and partners to show you an ad on or off Locumsbook, such as after you’ve visited a customer’s or partner’s site or application. These technologies help us to provide aggregated information to our customers and partners.

For further information regarding the use of cookies and similar technologies for advertising purposes, please see Section 2.4 of the Privacy Policy.

For further information, please see Section 1.4 of the Privacy Policy.

Performance, analytics and research: Cookies and similar technologies help us learn more about how well our Services and plugins perform in different locations.

We or our service providers use these technologies to understand, improve, and research products, features and services, including as you navigate through our sites or when you access Locumsbook from other sites, applications or devices. We, or our service providers, use these technologies to determine and measure the performance of ads or posts on and off Locumsbook and to learn whether you have interacted with our websites, content or emails and provide analytics based on those interactions.

We also use these technologies to provide aggregated information to our partners as part of our Services.

If you are a Locumsbook member but logged out of your account on a browser, Locumsbook may still continue to log your interaction with our services on that browser for up to 30 days in order to generate usage analytics for our Services. We may share these analytics in aggregate form with our customers.

What third parties use these technologies in connection with our Services?

Third parties such as our customers, partners and service providers may use cookies and similar technologies in connection with our Services.

For example, third parties may use cookies, pixels and other technologies in their Locumsbook pages, job posts and their advertisements on and off Locumsbook for their own marketing purposes. Third parties may also use cookies and similar technologies in connection with our off-site Services, such as Locumsbook ad services, plugins or tags. We may also work with third parties to help us provide our Services and for our own marketing purposes.

Your choices.

You have choices on how Locumsbook uses cookies and similar technologies. Please note that if you limit the ability of Locumsbook to set cookies and use similar technologies, you may worsen your overall user experience, since it may no longer be personalized to you. It may also stop you from saving customized settings like login information.

Opt Out of targeted advertising

As described in Section 2.4 of the Privacy Policy, you have choices regarding the personalized ads you may see.

Browser controls

Most browsers allow you to control cookies through their settings, which may be adapted to reflect your consent to the use of cookies. Further, most browsers also enable you to review and erase cookies, including Locumsbook cookies.

What is Do Not Track (DNT)?

DNT is a concept that has been promoted by regulatory agencies such as the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC), for the Internet industry to develop and implement a mechanism for allowing Internet users to control the tracking of their online activities across websites by using browser settings. As such, Locumsbook does not generally respond to “do not track” signals.

Other helpful resources

We adhere to self-regulatory principles for interest-based advertising and participate in industry opt-outs from such ads. This does not opt you out of receiving advertising altogether. You will continue to receive other ads from advertisers not listed with these self-regulatory tools or you may receive ads that are not personalized to you.
