If there is any conflict between these Competition Terms and any other service terms, the provisions of these Competition
Terms shall prevail when participating in the Competition.
By registering for or participating in the Competition you accept these Competition Terms. You are not allowed to participate in the Competition if you do not agree to these Competition Terms.
The Competition Terms constitute an agreement between you (either an individual or an entity) and Nokia Corporation, Keilalahdentie 2-4, 02150 Espoo, Finland including its affiliates and suppliers (collectively "Nokia"), defining your and Nokia's rights and responsibilities with respect to the Competition.
The Competition is designed to motivate and reward Nokia Asha developers who submit a Nokia Asha platform application for
review in an Asha UI Clinic, and thereafter publish an updated and improved application in Nokia Store by January 31, 2014
that incorporates clinic feedback. You acknowledge and agree that the Competition is one of skill, not chance. Prizes will
be awarded to those Entrants (as defined in Section 3 herein) who submit the three best entries ("Entry") as determined in
the sole discretion of the judges. No purchase is necessary to enter, participate or receive a prize. A purchase will not
increase chances of winning a prize.
The Competition begins at 09:00 AM GMT on 20 August 2013 and closes at 11:59 PM GMT on 15 December 2013 (the "Competition Period").
You understand and agree that you are solely and fully responsible for any and all aspects of the Entry submitted, including but not limited to its legality, appropriateness and non-infringement of third party intellectual property rights, and Nokia shall not be liable in any way for such Entry.
The Competition is void wherever prohibited or restricted by any mandatory national, state or other government laws in form and language as provided herein and is subject to all applicable mandatory federal (national), state and local laws.
By participating, you agree to the decisions of the judges, whose decisions are final and binding in all respects. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Nokia reserves the right at its sole discretion to amend, withdraw or revise these Competition Terms and the prizes at any time without notice and in such event Nokia shall not have any liability whatsoever.
This Competition is open to individuals, teams of individuals and business entities in all countries where participation is
not otherwise void as a matter of law (each individual, each team, each individual member of a team, and each entity is referred
to as an "Entrant" in these Competition Terms). You must be age 18 or older as of the date of submitting the Entry.
Employees and directors of Nokia, and Nokia's respective parents, affiliates, subsidiaries, retailers, distributors, agencies and their respective officers, directors, employees and agents (collectively, "Released Parties") are not eligible to enter or win. Furthermore, household members of any Released Parties are also not eligible to enter or win.
If you enter the Competition as a member of a team, you understand and agree that, in order for a team to be eligible to participate, all of the members of the team must meet the eligibility criteria contained herein and agree to these Competition Terms. By entering, you warrant that you have obtained the appropriate agreement and/or approval by your team members. In addition, you understand and agree that if the team is selected to receive a prize, the team is responsible for ensuring that the prize will be appropriately distributed or shared between team members and each member of the team must agree upon the payment or prize distribution method or, alternatively, the team must designate an individual on the team to receive a prize in the event the prize may not be apportioned between the team members. The eligibility of an Entrant is tied to the eligibility of the team. So if one member of a team does not comply with these Competition Terms or is disqualified, the team as a whole will be disqualified.
If you enter the Competition as part of a corporation or other legal entity (hereinafter collectively "Entity"), you warrant that the appropriate corporate officers, executives, managers or other persons having the authority to approve Entity’s Entry into this Competition have approved the Entrant's Entry and you understand that these Competition Terms will be binding on both you and the Entity. If such Entity is selected to receive a prize, a corporate officer or person entitled to bind the Entity will be required to validate that you are entitled to receive the prize on the behalf of the Entity and the corporate officer or person entitled to bind the Entity must provide the appropriate information for receiving the prize.
By entering, you agree to release, discharge, indemnify and hold harmless the Released Parties from any and all liability, claims, judgments, losses, injuries, demands, damages, actions, and/or causes of actions, whether direct or indirect, which may be due to or arise out of participation in the Competition or any portion thereof, or the acceptance, use/misuse or possession of any prize or Released Parties' use of any of the rights granted herein.
To enter the Competition you must complete two steps. First, submit a Nokia Asha-compatible application that you have published
(or plan to publish) in Nokia Store and provide the required details associated with your application to Nokia (email@example.com) for review in an Asha UI Clinic during August 2013. Second, if your application is featured in an Asha UI Clinic, and you
subsequently update your application incorporating the feedback received in the clinic and publish that application in Nokia
Store no later than December 15, 2013, then you will be entered into the Competition. The Competition judges will then select
the three most improved Nokia Asha applications to receive a prize.
Entrants must follow the instructions on the Competition website, and comply with any posted guidelines that apply when participating in the Competition. Nokia has the right at its sole discretion to add, change, amend, withdraw or revise any criteria and/or categories at any time without notice and in such event Nokia shall not have any liability whatsoever.
For a qualified Entry, you must submit all the information required on the Competition website. To qualify for a prize, all Entry materials, including the updated application and the supporting documentation, must be in the English language. Qualified Entries must have an updated Nokia Asha application that is published by the Entrant in Nokia Store before the Competition Period closes.
You hereby represent and warrant that (i) Entry is your original work and was created by you, (ii) the Entry has not won previous awards granted by Nokia; (iii) the Entry does not violate or infringe the intellectual property, proprietary or other rights of any third party, (iv) you possess and control all rights necessary to submit the Entry irrevocably and without restriction to Nokia, and (v) that publication of the Entry via various media including web posting, will not infringe on the rights any third party rights. You will indemnify and hold harmless Nokia from any claims to the contrary.
