100+ Accelerator, AB InBev, Content and Intellectual Property Guidelines

A. Content Guidelines

The purpose of our Services is to support, promote and empower the entrepreneurial ecosystem in local communities around the world. They are not intended to be utilized as a forum for self-promotion or for commercial gain by its users (e.g. users are not permitted to promote personal business interests or services through using our Services).

B. Responsibility for Your Content

You alone are responsible for Your Content and assume all risks associated with Your Content. You represent that you own, or have the necessary permissions to use and authorize the use of Your Content as described herein.

You may expose yourself to liability if, for example, (i) Your Content contains material that is false, intentionally misleading, or defamatory; (ii) violates any third-party right, including any copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret, moral right, privacy right, right of publicity, or any other intellectual property or proprietary right; (iii) contains material that is unlawful, including illegal hate speech or pornography; (iv) exploits or otherwise harms minors; or (v) violates or advocates the violation of any law or regulation.

C. Our Right to Use Your Content

In the event that Your Content is chosen to progress to the next stage, we may need you to grant us permission to use Your Content in a number of different ways, including publicly displaying it, reformatting it, incorporating it into other works, creating derivative works from it, promoting it, distributing it, and If this is the case, we will agree the uses and associated license rights with you.

D. Ownership

As between you and AB InBev, you own Your Content. We own the AB InBev Content, including but not limited to the visual interfaces, interactive features, graphics, design and all other elements and components of our Services excluding Your Content, User Content, and Third Party Content. We also own the copyrights, trademarks, service marks, trade names, and other intellectual and proprietary rights throughout the world ("IP Rights") associated with the AB InBev Content and our Services, which are protected by copyright, trade dress, patent, trademark laws and all other applicable intellectual and proprietary rights and laws. As such, you may not modify, reproduce, distribute, create derivative works or adaptations of, publicly display or in any way exploit any of the AB InBev Content in whole or in part except as expressly authorized by us. Except as expressly and unambiguously provided herein, we do not grant you any express or implied rights, and all rights in and to our Services and the AB InBev Content are retained by us.

All applications will be initially screened by a third party partner company ("AB InBev Partner"). In the event that the AB InBev Partner identifies that Your Content is similar to any IP Rights already under development by AB InBev, the AB InBev Partner will contact you to inform you and discuss how to proceed, prior to the disclosure of your application to AB InBev.

We reserve the right to remove, screen, edit, or reinstate User Content from time to time at our sole discretion for any reason or no reason, and without notice to you.
