This means that you cannot set up an account using a name or contact information that does not apply to you, and you must provide accurate and current information on all registration forms that are part of the Website. You may only set up one account. You have complete responsibility for your account and everything that happens on your account. This means you need to be careful with your password. If you find out that someone is using your account without your permission, you must let us know immediately. You may not transfer your account to someone else. We are not liable for any damages or losses caused by someone using your account without your permission. However, if we (or anyone else) suffer any damage due to the unauthorized use of your account, you may be liable.
You hereby assign, grant and transfer and agree to assign, grant and transfer to us all right and title in and to any and all Submissions made by you in connection with a Competition along with any and all copyright, patent, trade secret, moral right, and other intellectual property rights, in and to any and all such Winning Submissions. To the extent any rights in a Winning Submission are not assignable, you hereby grant and agree to grant to Dev Skill under any and all such rights an irrevocable, paid-up, royalty free, perpetual, exclusive, sublicensable (directly or indirectly through multiple tiers), transferable, and worldwide license to use and permit others to use such Winning Submission in any manner desired by us (and/or our contest sponsors or customers) without restriction or accounting to you, including, without limitation, the right to make, have made, sell, offer for sale, use, rent, lease, import, copy, prepare derivative works, publicly display, publicly perform, and distribute all or any part of such Winning Submission and modifications and combinations thereof and to sublicense (directly or indirectly through multiple tiers) or transfer any and all such rights. Further, you hereby waive and agree to waive in favor of Dev Skill any moral right or other right or claim that is contrary to the intent of a complete transfer of rights to Dev Skill in each Winning Submission. You agree to promptly execute such documents and perform such acts as we may reasonably require to perfect our entire right, title, and interest in and to each and every Winning Submission, including a Dev Skill Competition Assignment Agreement if requested by Dev Skill and/or a sponsor of a Competition.
The ownership rights in and to any Submission that is not a Winning Submission shall remain with the Contestant, except that to the extent you are required to enter into a Non-Disclosure Agreement in connection with a Competition, you understand and agree that the rights in and to any confidential information of the sponsor of a Competition shall remain the property of such Competition sponsor and you shall be bound by and the terms of such Competition shall apply with respect to your rights in and to the Submission.
Unless agreed otherwise in writing, the sponsor of a contest administered through the Website, Dev Skill owns and will retain ownership (including all intellectual property rights) in and to any materials that are not Submissions, which materials may be tangible or intangible, that you develop that are a result of a contest administered through the Website (“Contest Materials”), and any modifications, improvements and derivative works thereto (including any such materials that incorporate any of Contestant’s ideas, feedback or suggestions).
You are solely responsible for any User Content you post to the Website, and the consequences of posting or publishing it. By “User Content”, we mean any Content you post to the Website. “Content” means information, data, text, software, music, sound, photos, graphics, videos, messages, tags, interactive features, or any other materials. When we say “post”, we include posting, uploading, sharing, submitting or otherwise providing User Content in any manner in connection with the Website. For the avoidance of doubt, Submissions and Contest Materials are User Content.
We have the sole right, but not necessarily the obligation, to delete at any time any User Content that violates these rules or that we believe to be inappropriate for any reason.
If you post User Content, you are making a guarantee to us that you either own all the Content you are posting, or you have the right to post the Content. Unless otherwise expressly permitted, you may not copy or include in any User Content any code from any third party, including “open source” code or other code that is or may be subject to license terms. Furthermore, you are guaranteeing that you have the right to allow us to make your User Content available for others to view and use as part of the Website without requiring that any such use be subject to additional obligations or terms. If you do not have these rights, do not post the Content. By posting your User Content, you do not lose any ownership rights you may have to it. However, unless otherwise governed by the Official Rules and Regulations governing a specific Competition, you do grant us a worldwide, irrevocable, non-exclusive, royalty-free, fully-paid, sublicenseable (through multiple tiers of distribution) and transferable license to use, reproduce, modify, distribute, prepare derivative works of, display, and perform your User Content in connection with the Website and our business, in any media formats or in tangible form and through any media channels now known or hereinafter developed. You also grant each user of the Website a non-exclusive royalty-free, fully-paid, sublicenseable and transferable license to access your User Content through the Website, and to use, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, display and perform your User Content as permitted through the functionality of the Website and under these Terms of Service.
You understand that once you post User Content, your content becomes public. We are not responsible for keeping any User Content confidential. We generally do not review any of the User Content posted by our users. We do not endorse any User Content or support any views, opinions, recommendations, or advice that may be in user submissions. User Content comes from a variety of sources, and we make no promises about the reliability of any source or the accuracy, usefulness, safety, or intellectual property rights of any user submission. You may be offended by User Content that you see on the Website. You may find some of it to be inaccurate, offensive, indecent, or objectionable.

You understand that neither we, the Competition sponsors nor their parent corporations, subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, assigns, etc. or any entity connected with a Competition will be responsible for any costs Contestant may incur in connection with any Contest or any prize Contestant may be awarded. However, Contestant understands that Dev Skill may make withholdings from any prize that Contestant may be awarded in order to comply with applicable tax laws. Contestant agrees to sign any applicable forms necessary to distribute the prize as required by tax authorities.
A Competition sponsor may award prizes to more than one Submission with respect to any Competition. If a Contestant cannot or will not accept a prize, then the prize will be forfeited and may be awarded to the next highest scoring Submission. Unless otherwise provided herein, by participating in a Competition, a Contestant acknowledges and agrees that if his/her Submission is selected as a winner, the Contestant will receive award only upon verification of all applicable eligibility requirements. Prizes will be paid out by Dev Skill in Bangladesh no later than 90 days following the conclusion of the Competition. Taxes, if any, are the sole responsibility of the winner(s). Prizes which remain unclaimed or undeliverable for a period of six (6) months will be forfeited.
