Yellow Submission Terms

In these Yellow Submission Terms, “Snap”, “we” and “us” means Snap Inc. and its affiliates. By applying to Yellow, you agree to these Yellow Submission Terms, which incorporate by reference our Terms of Service and Privacy Policy (collectively, and together with these Yellow Submission Terms, the “Terms”). These Yellow Submission Terms set forth our submission policies for any submissions or applications, including, but not limited to, ideas, concepts, content, screenplays, videos, art, or other information, that you submit to us — which we refer to as your “Submission'' in these Yellow Submission Terms — in connection with your submission or application to Yellow. Yellow includes various of our programs, such as Accelerator, Bootcamp, and Community Events, as well as offerings we may provide to our Yellow community such as the Yellow Open Office Hours.  We may also, from time to time, include additional programs and offerings within Yellow.  Yellow is also considered one of our Services, as that term is defined in our Terms of Service and used throughout the Terms. Please read the Terms carefully. We may update or change the Terms at any time without notice, so please also read them regularly. By continuing to use the Service, you accept any updates to the Terms. To the extent these Yellow Submission Terms conflict with other terms governing the Service solely with respect to the Submission you include in your Yellow application, these Yellow Submission Terms will apply. If you submit anything to us via a means other than your application to Yellow, these Yellow Submission Terms will not apply.
Reviewing Your Submission 
By applying to Yellow, you give us a license to review your Submission to determine whether to accept you as part of Yellow. That’s it. Any additional terms related to our use of your Submission, if any, will require entering into a subsequent agreement between you and us. That also means we will have no obligation to develop, distribute, or pay you for your Submission, unless we have entered into a subsequent agreement to do so.
Third Party Rights
While we look forward to reviewing your Submission, we want to be clear that the purpose of Yellow is to support entrepreneurs and help them grow their businesses. As a result, we ask — and you hereby represent and warrant — that you will only submit (a) material for which you are the sole author or creator (for example an original screenplay written entirely on your own, without pulling from other works) or (b) material for which you are able to clear (i.e., get permission to use) any third party rights incorporated into that material (for example, an original screenplay written by you and a friend, where you have gotten your friend’s permission to apply to Yellow). If your Submission does incorporate third party rights (or there is any other impediment to your Submission development or distribution, such as pending or threatened litigation), we ask that you identify those when you submit your application to us and describe the process that will be required to clear those rights.
Acknowledgment of Snap’s Development Work; Injunctive Relief
In spite of our limited rights to use your Submission, it’s important that you understand that we may independently develop or create, or may have already independently developed or created,  technology, products, services, scripts, movies, shows, videos, or other content that is similar or identical to your Submission. By applying to Yellow, you agree to irrevocably waive any legal claim you may have against us under any theory of law in any territory, including, without limitation, copyright infringement or breach of implied in fact contract (idea submission), that your rights were infringed due to any similarity between your Submission and any other idea, concept, or content that is or may be developed by Snap, unless there is substantial similarity of protectable expression under United States copyright law between your Submission and the other content, and the other content includes a verbatim copy of a material portion of your Submission or a re-use of a material portion of footage from your Submission content. You acknowledge and understand that this waiver also includes waiving the right to obtain an injunction or other equitable relief, prohibiting Snap from distributing any content that may be similar, or identical, to your Submission.
We look forward to reviewing your Submission to Yellow!
