GLOBANT'S ALUMNI COMMUNITY RULES
Effective Date: August 13, 2018
Welcome to Globant's Alumni Community! We are very excited to have you onboard!
Globant's Alumni Community (the “Community”) is a selected, invite only community, formed by former Globers who, as considered by Globant in its sole discretion, meet certain excellence criteria and whose merits have stood out while being an employee of the company. Congratulations for becoming a member!
We hope you enjoy being a part of our Community and look forward to hearing from you often!
1. Acceptance of these Rules. If you have already been accepted as member of the Community (from here on, an “Alumni”), then you have already accepted these Rules at the moment that you submitted your application. If you are acting surprised and didn't notice that you had already granted your acceptance, here is how it happened: a pop-up window emerged before you were able to submit the relevant form, stating that you were required to read, accept and agree to these Rules mandatorily for you to join and/or request your admission to the Community, you then clicked “I accept and agree to the Community Rules” and voilá!.
But don´t worry, if you wish to revoke your acceptance you can do so by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org, nevertheless, please be advised that your acceptance and continuing compliance with these Rules is mandatory for you to remain a member of the Community. If you revoke your acceptance and/or if you fail to comply with these Rules at any time, we will need to exclude you as Alumni and you will no longer be a part of our Community.
Occasionally we may, in our discretion, make changes to these Rules. The changes to these Rules will not be retroactive, and the most current version of the Rules, which will always be published in the Alumni Community´s website (alumni.globant.com) (the “Website”), will govern your participation in the Community. We will try to notify you of material revisions. In some cases, we will notify you in advance, and your continued status as Alumni after the changes have been made will constitute your acceptance of the changes. Please therefore make sure you read any such notice carefully. If you do not wish to continue being an Alumni under the new version of the Rules, you may request your exclusion from the Community by contacting us to email@example.com.
2. Admission to the Community. As you have read, the Community is invite only. Therefore, Globant reserves the right to invite (and not to invite) any former Glober at its sole discretion. You may also request to be admitted as member of the Community but Globant will always reserve the admission right thereon. If you would like to request your admission to the Community, you can do so by completing the application form available at our Website. We will contact you soon thereafter in case your application has been accepted. On the other hand, if you are invited to join by Globant directly, you will also be required to fill-in the application form so we can collect your information for purposes of registration.
Globant will admit new members who are considered to have excelled in the performance of their duties as employees of the company and who have demonstrated to share Globant´s values: Aim for excellence, Act ethically, Constantly innovate, Be a team player, Think big and Have fun.
3. Benefits and exclusive promotions. If you are admitted as member of the Community you will be entitled to participate and have access to special benefits, events and promotions granted by Globant to some or all members of the Community. We will publish the entire catalogue of benefits in the Website and we will make reasonable efforts to secure that the catalogue remains updated at all times. Notwithstanding, Globant shall have no responsibility in the event a benefit continues to be published in the Website after being discontinued and makes no representation that the catalogue will be updated at all times. Globant reserves the right to incorporate new benefits or events as well as discontinue any benefit or event at its sole discretion and at any time, without the need to formally communicate to you the incorporation or exclusion of any event or benefit. Some of the benefits may require special conditions or requirements before you can be entitled to make use of them, like, for example, the execution of any preliminary document such as a Non-Disclosure Agreement, release of claims, etc. These will depend and will be associated to the nature of each benefit or event.
4. Conduct. As member of the Community, we expect you to conduct yourself fairly and respectfully with respect to Globant, its officers and employees, any other Alumni, as well as generally, when you are presenting yourself as Alumni. Remember you have been admitted to the Community based on your skills but also because you had proved to represent Globant´s values generally when you were still an employee of the company, accordingly, we expect you to continue representing such values as a member of Globant´s Alumni Community.
In particular, the following attitudes will not be permitted and could cause your immediate expulsion from the Community:
Any defamatory statement against Globant, the Community, any Alumni or any employee, director or officer of Globant, performed at any time and through any means, is against these Rules and may cause your immediate expulsion from the Community.
In your condition as Alumni you may have access to privileged information regarding Globant that is not available to the public at large, we expect you to comply with the confidentiality commitments set forth in these Rules and any violation to the same may cause your immediate expulsion from the Community.
Any dishonest, illegal or immoral activity attributable to you may cause your expulsion from the Community as long as we expect all Alumnis to conduct themselves according to the highest ethical and professional standards.
You will be contacted by us to the email address informed by you in the event we believe there are grounds to expel you from the Community and/or in the event we decide to immediately expel you from it. Please note that, while we will endeavor to satisfy your concerns regarding any possible expulsion from the Community, Globant will not be obligated to explain its decision, answer questions or provide any type of information concerning your expulsion from the Community. We may decide to exclude an Alumni at any time, for any particular reason.
