The Organizer and the Partner Organizations reserve the right to consider only a subset of all submitted applications.
The participants agree to be assigned by the Organizer to one of the initiative teams/projects on the basis of their skills voluntarily indicated in the application process and their choice of topics.

Participants are entitled to use third-party content (e.g. software code, images) as part of their contribution, provided that this content is also licensed under an open source license or may be distributed under such a license.

Essential contractual obligations are those whose fulfillment is necessary to achieve the objective of the contract. In the case of a breach of essential contractual obligations, the event Organizer and the Partner Organizations are only liable for typical, foreseeable damage if this was caused simply by negligence unless the consultant claims compensation for damage to life, limb or health.

The Organizer can collect personal data from the participants (for example names or e-mail addresses that are relevant to the proper implementation of the event) to third-party service providers (e.g. Partner Organizations, moderators or facilitators) who have been commissioned by the Organizer to support the implementation of the event. If these cooperating service providers are located outside the European Union, an international data transfer takes place. The data that participants provide when applying for or participating in the initiative can be passed on to these service providers, and the treatment of this information, if available, is subject to the data protection guidelines of these service providers. The principle of the data economy is followed. All cooperating service providers are advised in any case to treat the data on the same or similar level of data protection as that of the European Union.
Participants have the right to access their personal data, to correct it, to delete it and to object. You can exercise this right by contacting the Organizer at [email protected] or by writing to Nextcoder Softwareentwicklungs GmbH, Skalitzer Straße 85/86, 10997 Berlin.

The exact purposes of use are explained in more detail in the stated declaration of consent image rights.
Participants can object to the declaration of consent in the application process by actively not checking the box in the registration process. The participants are also required to point out the objection they have made immediately before the announcement of a recording and, if necessary, to pseudonymise their real name, or prevent the recording by switching off their own technical equipment (e.g. webcam).
