Use of Third Party Materials

If your solution requires the use of non-Indigitous provided materials (such as a dataset or code) (your “Solution Materials”), you are responsible for ensuring that your Solution Materials are available without restriction or, at a minimum, are also licensed as open source as defined by the Open Source Initiative: Examples of appropriate licenses can be found here:  You are solely responsible for all required verification or investigation of the availability of your Solution Materials prior to submitting your solution. Any licenses applicable to your Solution Materials must be identified in the documentation submitted for your solution. Any solutions which do not include appropriate license documentation for Solution Materials will not be accepted for posting.


You represent and warrant that you have sufficient rights to authorize the publication and dissemination of your solution to support Indigitous #HACK and to use and to authorize others to use your Solution Materials, whether those materials are owned by you or others (as specified in the “Use of Third Party Materials” section of this Agreement). You are wholly responsible for your solution. This means you are liable if your solution (1) is determined to be defamatory, abusive, derogatory, offensive, or otherwise inappropriate, (2) violates any laws, rules or regulations, or (3) infringes, or constitutes a misappropriation of, any intellectual property rights or confidential information of any third party. We reserve the right to remove your solution from the website at any time in at our sole discretion.


Except where prohibited, submission of a solution constitutes your consent for use of your name, and/or hometown and country information and information about your solution for promotional purposes in connection with Indigitous #HACK through any form of media, worldwide, without further permission, payment or consideration.


Your local Indigitous #HACK Location is solely responsible for compliance with any laws, rules or regulations applicable to prizes or contests in its jurisdiction. Indigitous is not responsible for the conduct of any Indigitous #HACK events. You agree to release and hold Indigitous and its related entities harmless against any and all claims against them resulting from your breach of any of the representations, warranties or obligations contained in this Agreement, including claims related to the use of your Solution Materials.

You assume any and all risks to you associated with your submission of a solution. Therefore, you also waive and release any and all claims or causes of action against Indigitous and their officers, employees and agents for any and all injury and damage of any nature whatsoever (whether existing or thereafter arising, whether direct, indirect, or consequential and whether foreseeable or not), arising from the submission of your solution to Indigitious #HACK.
