Premium Advertisements

Advertisers who choose to purchase a Premium Ad (a “Premium Ads”) are bound by and agree to the following terms:

  1. You shall be obliged to pay the full fee for the Premium Ads, even if:
    1. you do not provide all necessary information to enable SEEK to provide the Premium Ads or all benefits and functions thereof;
    2. you do not otherwise fully utilise the Premium Ads functionality; and/or
    3. you request the withdrawal of the Premium Ads at any time (whether before or after it appears on the Site).
  2. During the period that a Premium Ad is live on the Site, by increasing the exposure of a Premium ad SEEK aims to on average double the number of applications achieved by your ad over a 30 day period compared to the applications you would receive for the same ad if it were a Classic ad.
  3. A Premium Ad will be promoted for a period of 30 days from first listing or until such time as it reaches its performance target. During the same period, the content of a Premium Ad will be duplicated into a StandOut Ad which will remain on the Site for 30 days (even if the performance target has been reached), unless you request the StandOut Ad’s removal.
  4. The price of a Premium Ad may be amended by SEEK from time to time, and distinguished between different employment classifications and locations, in response to market demand and SEEK’s ability to deliver increased exposure of advertisements having regard to then current market conditions.
  5. Whilst Premium Ads receive greater exposure on the Site than standard SEEK job advertisements, SEEK provides no guarantee and makes no representation that a Premium Ad will result in an increase in the number of applications an advertiser may receive in response to the Premium Ad, and you acknowledge that application levels are influenced by many factors beyond the control of SEEK.
  6. Once purchased, your Premium Ad can be edited free of charge. If you edit the category and or location of your ad, the market conditions will likely change, which ordinarily would change the price of a premium ad. You will not be entitled to a refund nor will you be charged extra as a result of any such price changes. Rather, if you edit your ad whilst it is live we will continue to promote that ad based on the price you originally paid for it. As a consequence, this may affect our ability to deliver double the applicants your ad would have received if it was a Classic ad.
