Terms of use


You are using LAUNCH, which is a simple but excellent step forward in your career building or in your search for suitable talent.


1. General - scope

These are the general terms and conditions that apply to any use of the platform (website is accessible via www.launch.career and mobile applications) and the services under the name of LAUNCH, which are offered by LAUNCH.CAREER BV, having its registered office at Antwerp in Vloeyenbergdreef 7, 2970 Schilde, registered in the CBE with company number BE 0752.653.682.

LAUNCH's terms of use are always and exclusively dedicated for its purpose.

The mission of LAUNCH is to bring students and young graduates into contact with the business world and the labor market in a free, fast, and efficient way and, conversely, to allow companies to discover and recruit suitable talent in a simple and cost-effective way.

Through their profile, students and young graduates are directly provided with suitable internship and job opportunities, while companies distribute their company information and vacancies digitally, immediately to the right target group.

The mere fact of your use of the platform and the services offered by LAUNCH means that you fully accept the general terms and conditions of use; this gives you a number of rights, but you are also bound by a number of obligations.

When creating an account, you will explicitly confirm this acceptance, including our privacy policy. However, LAUNCH may change, supplement or delete these terms and conditions at any time, e.g. in function of changed services or legislation.

This will of course be done by posting these changes on its platform.

Please read these terms and conditions carefully and take into account that with each (renewed) use, you acknowledge to have read, understood, and approved these (possibly renewed) terms and conditions.

If you do not agree with the (renewed) terms of use, you should not create an account or close your account and no longer use LAUNCH.

2. Services and responsibilities of LAUNCH

LAUNCH makes all or part of its platform and services available to members, recruiters/companies and visitors in order to achieve its goal and in accordance with these terms of use.

LAUNCH makes every effort to make its platform and services permanently available but can interrupt access at any time and without prior warning due to technical or other reasons, without responsibility for the consequences.

LAUNCH respects and protects everyone's privacy. LAUNCH takes appropriate organizational and technical measures to ensure the security of personal data and its confidentiality, as further detailed in its privacy policy, which forms an integral part of these terms of use.

LAUNCH makes every effort to keep its platform and services free from malicious software (bugs, viruses, spyware, Trojans, etc.) but cannot fully guarantee its absence and accepts no liability for any damage that may result to users , all of which are strongly recommended to install the necessary security programs (antivirus programs, firewalls, etc.) on their hardware.

In certain sections, the platform may contain hyperlinks to websites or content managed by recruiters/companies or by third parties. LAUNCH accepts no responsibility for the quality, correctness or legality of this content or for the proper functioning of these websites. LAUNCH cannot be held responsible for any damage resulting from its use.

3. Members and their responsibilities

3.1 Becoming a member

Only as an account holder can you access or use certain possibilities, functions, parts or elements of LAUNCH.

An account can be created with login information, i.e. an email address and a password. If you have registered your account through an account with certain third-party social networking services such as Facebook or Google, this account will serve as login information.

Only if you are an adult student or young graduate who wants to get in touch with the business world and the labor market through LAUNCH in a free, fast and efficient way, you can create an account by filling in the registration form on the website, by accepting the terms of use and the privacy policy of LAUNCH, by clicking on "register" or a similar button.

From then on you will be considered a member by LAUNCH.

A member is therefore a registered user, in contrast to a visitor who does not create an account but occasionally visits the freely accessible part of the LAUNCH platform.

3.2 Obligation to provide accurate information

As a member, you guarantee to LAUNCH that all information you enter in the application form and/or post on the platform is completely accurate.

If LAUNCH can reasonably believe that the information provided by a member is misleading or incorrect, LAUNCH has the right to delete this information and, if it deems necessary, to delete the account of that member.

As a member, you are personally liable for any damage caused by the entry of incomplete, incorrect or misleading data, and LAUNCH accepts no responsibility in this regard.

As a member, you agree that LAUNCH can access, store, process and use the data you provide in accordance with the goal of LAUNCH and its privacy policy.

LAUNCH uses personal profile information and data of members to make recommendations to interested recruiters/companies and to find matches with them.

If you keep your profile accurate, complete and up-to-date, these recommendations/matches will become more accurate and relevant.

3.3 Personality of an account

An account must be created by an individual, natural and adult student or young graduate.

You can only create one account and it is strictly personal and non-transferable.

You are not allowed to create an account under the name of someone else unless that adult person has given permission to do so.

As a member, you are personally responsible for any damage caused by creating multiple or illegal accounts.

Each member is also responsible for anything that happens through his/her account, except after removal or reporting of abuse.

3.4 Confidentiality of a member's account/password

As a member, you should provide a strong password and you are responsible for the confidentiality of your password, which gives access to your account.

A member is not allowed under any circumstances to grant access to his/her account/password to others.

3.5 Notices and messages

As a member, you agree that LAUNCH can make notifications or send you messages via the platform in accordance with the goals of LAUNCH, e.g. for completion or updating of your profile information.

3.6 Account deletion

You can always delete your own account yourself by following the steps indicated after clicking on "delete account" in the "personal settings" section of the platform. LAUNCH will then anonymize or delete all your data, in accordance with the legal regulations.

LAUNCH, for its part, also has the right to delete a member's account in case of use in violation of the terms of use.

5. Use of the platform and services of LAUNCH by Recruiters/Companies and their responsibilities

LAUNCH concludes agreements with companies/recruiters who want to make themselves known to students and young graduates in order to display their business activities, their values and visions, internships and employment opportunities and ultimately to recruit suitable talents.

The recruiters/companies will be able to post company information, invitations, offers etc. to the platform, in accordance with the mission of LAUNCH and all relevant legal rules.

The recruiters/companies themselves are personally responsible for any damage caused by the entry of incomplete, incorrect or misleading information/invitations. LAUNCH accepts no responsibility in this regard.

In certain sections, the LAUNCH platform may provide hyperlinks to websites or content managed by the recruiters/companies themselves, who are themselves responsible for the quality, correctness or legality of this content or for the operation of these websites. LAUNCH accepts no responsibility in case of damage.

Based on criteria provided by the recruiters/companies that must be in accordance with all relevant legal regulations, LAUNCH can supply profiles (personal data) of members.

The recruiters/companies undertake to use these profiles only for the goal of LAUNCH and in accordance with the terms of use and the privacy policy of LAUNCH and generally in compliance with all legal provisions on privacy and data protection.

6. Intellectual property

LAUNCH cannot be held liable for damage resulting from the fact that the user does not fulfill his obligations.

In all cases in which LAUNCH is held liable, its responsibility toward the user will be limited to the total amounts paid by the user to LAUNCH during the twelve (12) months prior to the origin of the damage.

8. Conflicts and governing law

If one or more provisions of these terms of use prove to be invalid, this will not affect the validity of the other provisions.

In case of a conflict between a member or a recruiter/company and LAUNCH, an amicable solution will always be sought first, if necessary through mediation.

If the dispute cannot be resolved in any other way, the courts of Antwerp have exclusive jurisdiction to hear the conflict. Belgian law is applicable.
