Subject to the exceptions described below, if you submit an application to PreRound, we will not share the specific contents of your application, other than for the purpose of evaluating your application and supporting it through the process. When we share your application for such evaluation and suport purposes, we will use reasonable efforts to ensure that those evaluators and mentors (whether within or outside of preRound) agree to treat your application confidentially.

Children Under 13

PreRound does not knowingly collect personal data, or accept applications, from children under the age of 13. If you are under the age of 13, please do not submit any personal data or applications through the site. Please have your parent contact us at apply@preround.com to discuss your application.

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. If your application has an idea or product that you might want to patent, we strongly recommend applying for a patent or speaking to a lawyer before submitting your application to PreRound.

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). Therefore, you should not include any information in your application that you feel could be harmful to your company should that information be disclosed.

Note that applying to PreRound is very similar to presenting your idea to potential investors. Very few investors (Venture Capitalists or "angel investors") will agree to sign an NDA before even hearing your initial pitch. 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.

Changes to this Applications Privacy Policy

Our application process may change from time to time. As a result, at times it may be necessary for PreRound to make changes to this privacy policy. PreRound reserves the right to update or modify this privacy policy at any time and from time to time without prior notice. Please review this policy periodically, and especially before you submit an application. This privacy policy was last updated on the date indicated below. Your submission of an application or continued use of the site after any changes or revisions to this privacy policy shall indicate your agreement with the terms of such revised privacy policy.
