    2. For general information purposes, and subject to further information relating to these Services made available by Ditto Jobs on the Platform or elsewhere, users can create job adverts, client records and candidate profiles using the easy-to-use tools on the Platform, and then maximise the dissemination of such information using our many linked authorised recruitment and job websites.
