The Hack Code of Conduct:

Participation: Eligible participants have to register for the Hackathon prior to the event or join the first day (November 3rd). Participants will be provided with Galileo-enabled phones, but they do need to bring their own laptops and have software for programming an app. Only participants that will participate both days of the event and present their results will be eligible to win prizes.

Promotional material: The GSA has all right to use all media content gathered during the Hackathon (photos, videos, interviews) for all further marketing and promotional activities.

Intellectual Property: Your Submission and all components thereof must: (a) be your (or your Team, Small Organization, or Large Organization’s) original work product; (b) be solely owned by you, your Team, your Small Organization, or your Large Organization with no other person or entity having any right or interest in it; and (c) not violate the intellectual property rights or other rights, including but not limited to copyright, trademark, patent, contract, and/or privacy rights, of any other person or entity.

The GSA will have no claim for the Intellectual Property (IP) of the developed app prototype. The IP will belong to the developer team.
