  2. law firms, international financing institutions, public institutions and any private company wishing to advertise internships or entry level jobs (hereinafter referred to as the “T4C Partners”);
  3. LEAR administrations, who deal with both T4C Talents and Partners.

5. Password and user ID

The user ID is the email address used to register on the Platform for both T4C Talents and T4C Partners.

T4C Partner: the login credentials  are created by the Administrator and then communicated to the Partner. Each T4C Partner has a single account that can be used to perform all the envisaged activities on the Platform (e.g. publish job offers, view candidates CVs, etc.). In this context, the T4C Partner has the responsibility to appoint a person in charge of managing the Platform.

The user ID and password which are provided to T4C Partner to access the Platform are strictly personal and belong to the person on behalf of whose T4C Partner they are issued at the time of the request for registration on the Platform. The  user shall protect and safeguard them carefully and shall undertake not to make them available to third parties.

If the appointed person leaves the organization, it is the responsibility of the T4C Partner to change the password in order to prevent him/her from accessing the Platform. The Partner may ask the Administrator to change the User ID (i.e. email address) in addition to the password.

T4C Talent: Registration can be carried out only after indicating a valid Eventbrite Order Number (i.e. reference number obtained when registering for the Lear Competition Festival or T4C).

The T4C Talents define their password at the time of registering on  the  T4C Platform. ID is the email used during the registration.

The T4C Talents are responsible for the safeguarding and confidentiality of their password, and the proper use of the account. They must not use the account, user ID or password of another user and must not permit others to use theirs. For any improper use of the password, the Administrator may permanently suspend their use of the Platform.

Deletion of the account can be done by selecting the delete button located at the bottom of your profile page.

Please note that this process will delete all the data registered on the platform, including the applications that you may have already sent. This is true even if an acceptance or refusal response has already been sent by the partner and received by the talent.

Note that the deletion process on the T4C platform does not affect the data that the partners have already received. If you wish to delete the data collected by the partner you will need to contact the administrator at info@learcompetionfestival.com.

Forgotten password

In the event of loss of the password, T4C Partners or T4C Talents can recover it in the section “Reset password”. For any further issues, users can contact the assistance through the dedicated webpage of the platform.
