Sponsor Compensation

After reading the rules for the hackaton, I don't fully understand the possible compensations to the Sponsor.

I would appreciate if you could elaborate on this "YOU AGREE TO THESE OFFICIAL RULES, WHICH ARE A CONTRACT, SO READ THEM CAREFULLY BEFORE ENTERING. THIS CONTRACT INCLUDES PROVISIONS REQUIRING YOU TO COMPENSATE THE SPONSOR (DEFINED BELOW) AND A LIMITATION OF YOUR RIGHTS AND REMEDIES."

Thank you

    Hi Nicolas, thank you for your question. #6 GENERAL RULES in the Rules states the following:

    "By entering the Contest (except where prohibited by law), each participant grants the Contest Entities the irrevocable, sublicensable, free of charge, absolute right and permission to use, publish, post or display his or her name, photograph, likeness, voice, prize information, biographical information, any quotes attributable to him or her and any other indicia of persona (regardless of whether altered, changed, modified, edited, used alone, or used with other material in the Contest Entities' sole discretion) for advertising, trade, promotional and publicity purposes without further obligation or compensation of any kind to him or her, anywhere, in any medium now known or hereafter discovered or devised (including, without limitation, on the Internet), world-wide, without any limitation of time and without notice, review or approval and each participant releases all Contest Entities from any and all liability related to such authorized uses. Nothing contained in these Official Rules obligates the Sponsor to make use of any of the rights granted herein and winner waives any right to inspect or approve any such use."

    What this means is that you are responsible for giving adequate attribution to the sponsors when necessary. In your case, it is few and far between that you'd have to attribute anything to our sponsors. It is a provisionary statement that affects us as the app challenge hosts and sponsors more than participants.

    Thank you,
    Solly
