We respect ownership of intellectual property rights (IP): your IP remains yours; ours remains ours. What we create together during the event will be our joint IP (yours and ours). In such case we commit together to a 3 months exclusivity period to negotiate a potential agreement, such as a JDA. This period can be extended if partners enter into a JDA development trajectory. If one of the partners indicates within the 3 months period that it has no interest to negotiate further, the shared IP will be allocated to the other party. If neither party indicates that it has an interest to negotiate further, the shared IP will become available for both parties to use freely.
You have the right to access and edit your personal data maintained by us at any time. Just contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
As is customary, you should ensure that the information you share with us does not breach any contract or obligation between you and a third party and that, to the best of your information, possession or use of the information by us or any of our affiliates does not misappropriate or infringe any intellectual property rights of others.
You need to be aware that in case you do share information you were not allowed to share, we cannot be held responsible for any damages in connection with any claim for misappropriation or infringement resulting from our possession or use of the information submitted by you or the possession or use thereof by any of our affiliates.
When you have submitted your ideas or innovation, we will start the online interaction with you, evaluate your idea and ask questions. Also other participants may contribute or ask questions. If, at some point, you feel you are asked to disclose confidential information, then raise this with us, prior to disclosing this information. If you do not raise this with us prior to disclosure, the information will be non-confidential and we may treat it as such. If it is jointly deemed a necessity, to properly evaluate your idea or innovation, that confidential information is disclosed to protect our mutual interests we can together decide to enter into a confidentiality agreement and/or conduct (part of) the evaluation in a closed environment.
Following your submission, we may invite you to further participate in the three day event. At that stage we will communicate clearly what terms and conditions will apply.
Participation - New IP
In case a party indicates within the 3 months exclusivity period that it has no interest to negotiate a subsequent agreement, the shared IP will, after 3 months, be allocated to the other party.
If neither party indicates that it has an interest to negotiate a subsequent agreement, the shared IP will become available for both parties to use freely, without accounting to the other party.
