Terms & conditions

  1. I own all right, title and interest in the idea that I am submitting to Nokia, and no other party has an interest in the idea or any claim to it, or, in the alternative, I am authorized to submit this idea on behalf of the owner of the idea.
  2. I understand that Nokia does not automatically accept, consider as confidential or keep secret any information about an idea that I submit. I agree that no confidential relationship or obligation of secrecy is established between Nokia and me with respect to the idea I submit.
  3. I accept that my idea submission is non-confidential, without limitation.
  4. I understand that by submitting my idea, I do not grant any rights to Nokia under any issued and valid patents that may exist now or that may be granted to me in the future. However, I understand and agree that Nokia’s acceptance of my submission, any consideration it may pay to me, or its use of the idea submitted, shall not impair Nokia’s rights to contest the validity or the non-infringement of any patent claims or other intellectual property rights in my idea.
  5. If my idea is protected or potentially protectable by a valid and issued patent, or is original and novel to Nokia and is adopted by Nokia, any license or transfer of my rights, and compensation for my idea, if any, will be set forth as part of a separate written agreement between Nokia and me.
  6. If Nokia decides that it would like additional information which I am only willing to disclose to Nokia on a confidential basis, Nokia will only accept the additional information if we have first signed a separate agreement clearly setting forth the scope of the material to be considered as confidential, the time period for any confidentiality obligations, and any other mutually agreeable terms and conditions.
  7. Nokia reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to award, or not to award, as well as amend or revise prizes as Nokia deems fit for submissions considered most innovative. Furthermore, Nokia specifically reserves the right to disqualify from the Nokia Open Innovation Challenge any submissions that Nokia determines, in its sole discretion, to not comply with the terms and conditions applicable to the Nokia Open Innovation Challenge.
  8. I understand and agree that I shall be responsible for my own taxes and shall pay all taxes or levies imposed on me under the applicable laws, regulations and tax treaties as a result of receiving a prize during the Nokia Open Innovation Challenge or otherwise under these Terms and Conditions.
  9. I give my consent to Nokia to keep a copy of my contact information that I provided in connection with my submission also after the Nokia Open Innovation Challenge has been concluded. In addition, I accept to be contacted by Nokia team in case of future opportunities.
  10. These Terms and Conditions cannot be modified or waived except by a written document that is signed by an authorized representative of Nokia.
