TERMS AND CONDITIONS
You agree that any and all ideas, concepts, know-how, inventions, technologies, patents, patent applications, and associated materials (collectively referred to as the “Materials”) that You convey to CT shall be governed by these Terms and Conditions.
You understand and acknowledge that you must file for patent protection before disclosing the Materials to any third party (including CT) on a non-confidential basis or else You risk losing the ability to protect such Materials with patent rights under applicable law.
You agree that the Materials will not be considered a “trade secret” or “confidential” by CT, unless the disclosure to CT is covered by a separate, formal and written confidentiality agreement signed by CT prior to said disclosure.
You represent and warrant that You are the sole proprietor, or authorized representative of the sole proprietor , of the entire right, title, and interest in the Materials and that You have the full and exclusive right to disclose such Materials to CT.
You agree that (a) You are not submitting the Materials to CT in confidence, (b) You do not have any expectation that the Materials will be held in confidence, (c) CT does not need to keep the Materials confidential, and (d) CT may disclose the Materials for any purpose to any third parties, thereby including employees, consultants, or any other persons CT sees fit.
You acknowledge that the Materials and their consideration by CT create no confidential, fiduciary, or other relationships, express or implied, between You and CT.
CT will give the Materials such consideration, if any, as CT, in its sole and absolute discretion, believes that the Materials deserve. You further agree that CT shall not be obliged to provide You with any information whatsoever concerning the nature, extent, or results of CT’s evaluation of the Materials. CT shall not be responsible for any lost or discarded materials included with the Materials, and CT shall have no obligation to return the Materials to You. You agree that Your conveyance of the Materials to CT does not create an obligation for CT to view or review the Materials, and that making the Materials available to CT is not evidence of CT’s receipt of the Materials, nor does it create a presumption that CT has seen or reviewed the Materials.
If CT elects to do so, it may seek a formal written agreement with You relating to the Materials and the written agreement may provide for the payment of compensation to You. However, You agree that CT will be under no obligation of any kind with respect to these Materials unless and until it enters into such a written agreement and then only according to the terms of that agreement.
You agree that either the consideration of the Materials, or any discussions CT may have concerning the Materials, shall be without any prejudice to CT. You expressly recognise and agree that neither this Agreement nor the Materials shall be construed as creating any obligation on the part of CT to order Your services, to license or purchase the Materials, or to compensate You in any manner, except as may otherwise be set forth in a separate subsequent written agreement.
Solely by conveying the Materials, You are not transferring any commercial rights in the Materials to CT. However, You understand and acknowledge that Your exclusive rights and remedies relating to the Materials, or the use of such Materials by CT, shall be limited to such rights and remedies, if any, as may be accorded to You under the European Patent Convention (“EPC”). You also agree that CT shall at all times preserve and maintain all of its remedies and defences under the EPC and other national laws , including the right to contest the validity of any such patent, or any alleged infringement, as if CT had never received the Materials from You.
You expressly acknowledge and agree that CT both develops its own ideas and concepts and also receives Materials relating to ideas and concepts for games and products from numerous third parties. Your ideas and concepts may appear similar to ideas that CT develops independently or otherwise receives, licenses, or purchases from third parties. You agree that any similarities between the ideas and concepts that You convey and those developed by CT or those licensed, purchased, or received by CT from third parties, whether or not said similarities are coincidental, shall not give rise to any claims related to or arising out of such similarities, including but not limited to claims for copyright, trade mark and/or confidentiality infringement or idea misappropriation. You agree that CT’s consideration of the Materials in no way limits or restricts CT from using any ideas or concepts developed independently by CT, using concepts or ideas submitted from third parties or licensing ideas or concepts from third parties, prior to, during, or after receiving Your Materials.
You and CT expressly agree that Your conveyance and CT’s receipt of the Materials is adequate consideration for these Terms and Conditions.
Only persons eighteen (18) years or older may convey Materials. By agreeing to these Terms and Conditions, You warrant and represent that You are 18 years or older.
You agree that there are no other statements or agreements, oral or written, made prior to or at the signing hereof, that apply to the Materials, that these Terms and Conditions supersede any prior agreements or understandings, and that no modifications or exceptions to these Terms and Conditions will apply unless agreed to by both You and CT in a separate written agreement.
In the event that any provision of these Terms and Conditions, including any sentence, clause or part hereof, shall be deemed contrary to law or invalid or unenforceable in any respect by a court of competent jurisdiction, the remaining provisions shall not be affected, but shall, to the maximum extent permissible in law, remain in full force and effect and any invalid and unenforceable provisions shall be deemed, without further action on the part of the parties hereto, modified, amended and limited to the minimum extent necessary to render the same as valid and enforceable.
These Terms and Conditions and any Materials made pursuant to this website will be governed, interpreted and construed under the laws of the Republic of Bulgaria without regard to its conflict of law principles. Both You and CT agree that any dispute or litigation arising hereunder or related to the subject matter hereof or related to any Materials made available hereunder shall be submitted to the Arbitration Court at the Bulgarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry and shall be finally settled in accordance with its Rules of Arbitration , and You hereby agree to the jurisdiction of the above said Arbitration Court.
