Please check the form for posting an ad here to see which information you need to provide for the ad. By posting an ad you agree to use a correct e-mail address and to receive e-mails from us. Your ad will be deleted if you use an incorrect e-mail address.
Who can become a member?
For the time being membership on look for skill is intended for residents in the EU-/EEA-countries and Switzerland - countries that allow free movement of goods, capital, services and people among them. All members must be able to offer 1 to 3 cultural and creative services within the defined categories on the Site - either to all these countries, or 1-5 specifically defined. We expect all members to have relevant knowledge and skill for the offered services.
Both people with and without a business/company - for example self-employed or hobbyists - can become members. We want to enable a personal meeting between visitors and members. Therefore members should present themselves as individuals, whether they have a business or not. A group of artists may as well offer their services. However, companies with several employees, who wish to offer their services on the Site, have to register one account for each employee, as there are the individuals who stand for knowledge and skill - not a business in itself.
What does the membership include?
As a member, you can in a simple way introduce yourself and the services you offer. By registering and creating an account, you get access to your Member Page, where your profile is created and updated. You decide when you want to make your profile public.
Your Public Profile includes: Basic info, 1-3 Service offers, About - more info about you, News, Contact form, Guestbook, 1-3 Links, Share-on social media and "Add to Memolist", which enables visitors or other members to save a link to you. In addition the Member Page also includes View Profile, Account info, a Memolist, Help and a Notice Board where we will post useful info for you.
The links you include must be related to you and/or your business, e.g. your own website or blog.
To become a member you must register and create an account (the "Account").
At the time of registration you must enter your name, e-mail address and choose a password. The password is personal and may only be used by you. You are responsible for storing the password in a secure manner and you are responsible for any unauthorized use of your account. You must notify us of any unauthorized use of your password.
You will receive an e-mail confirming the registration. By becoming a member you agree to use a correct e-mail address and to receive e-mails from us. Your account will be deleted if you use an incorrect e-mail address.
In the profile you will provide voluntary information and some mandatory information. Not all of this information will be public when you publish your profile. You can check "View profile" in your Member Page to see what will be or is public.
You must ensure that the information given is correct, for the relevant purpose and that it does not contain offensive, defamatory or discriminating material. You agree that you will not pretend to be or attempt to impersonate another person. You also agree to ensure that the information remains accurate and current at all times. We reserve the right if needed, to remove published material of any kind.
Member Accounts are not transferable and may only be used by the member personally. Creation of a new Account following termination by the Operator is not permitted.
It is important that members are active, so that the services offered are available to interested customers. In order to avoid the risk of out-of-date service offers, we will ask you to confirm once a year that you want to renew your free membership.
The last date to renew the membership and the renewal function is found on the Member Page/Account. You will be notified that it is time to renew by email in advance. You must renew in time or your profile will automatically be unpublished. To publish again thereafter, you must confirm the renewal within 3 months, otherwise your account will be deleted.
Suspension and Termination of Access and Membership
A member can at any time during the membership choose to temporarily unpublish his/her public profile or completely terminate the membership and the publication of the profile.
If we suffer liability to third parties, or other costs as a result of circumstances mentioned in the preceding paragraph, the Member is obliged to indemnify us for this.
Section III: PRIVACY
What we get and how we use it
Personally Identifiable Information (hereafter "PII") is information that could reasonably be used to identify you personally (such as your name or e-mail address). Generally, you may browse the Site without providing any PII.

We use the PII for providing the Site, for communication with you, to conduct research for internal purposes and to improve our services. Material loaded on a member's public profile or on posted ads might be used by us for promotional purposes.
When you visit the Site, our web server automatically collect usage information, which is Anonymous Information (AI) that describes how visitors use and navigate the Site. Analysis of these data allows us to improve the supply and performance of the Site.
How long we keep the information
After the deletion of an Account/Profile we will keep the information no longer than three months. The same applies for a "Services Needed Ad".
How we share information
Except as indicated below, we do not share your PII to third parties unless you give us permission to, or if we need to share such information to provide services you have requested. For example we may use third parties to assist us in tracking the number and activities of visitors to the Site. When we provide PII to third parties, we require them to use it only for the function that we are providing the information for.
You may request details of PII which we hold about you under the Personal Data Act (1998:204). An application must be in writing to the Operator and be signed by you. If you are a member, please read the following paragraph.
Updates and changes
As a logged in member, you can review the PII we have on file in your Member Page. You can customise the information and delete certain information from your profile whenever you want.
AI is not identifiable as originating with you and cannot be revised or amended by you.
As a member you decide to publish your Member profile on the Site and the information will be public. If you want, you can unpublish your public profile temporarily or decide to delete your Member account and profile. You can check "View profile" in your Member Page to see what information will become or is public.
By posting a "Services needed ad", you will make the information in the ad public during two months, unless you delete the ad before that.
Consider provided public information to be publicly available indefinitely since it may be distributed by others through e.g. social media or be cached on third party search engines, even after the provided material no longer is publicly available on the Site.
We are committed to ensuring that provided non-public PII is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure we have put in place suitable procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect. Despite these precautions, however, we cannot guarantee for unauthorised access to your PII.
We rely on you to select passwords that are not easily guessed passwords and to protect from disclosure.
