General Information Included in Your Application

Due to the large number of applications and related materials that we receive and review as PreRound entities, and the similarity of much of the information provided in such materials, we cannot accept responsibility for protecting against misuse or disclosure of any general information, knowledge or other materials (including without limitation any information generally known in your industry) included in or provided with your application.

Protection of intellectual property rights (for example, patents, trademarks, copyright, trade secrets, etc.) of your concept is your responsibility and your responsibility alone.

Information you include in your application will be shared with the set of reviewers that review your application. Please note that these reviewers do NOT sign Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs). It is up to you to determine the right balance between sharing enough information to get people interested and to give you credibility, and sharing information that could potentially be damaging to your company if it were to be disclosed. Therefore, you should not include any information in your application that you feel could be harmful to your company should that information be disclosed.

Use of the Pre app

We rely on the use of the Pre app to provide a gamified investing experience to you. Any use of the Pre app by you is subject to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy of that app.

PreMoney as play money

Please note that PreMoney -- the money you receive on PreRound to participate in any event or episode on the show -- is play-money. It is not real money, it is not a legal tender.
