TL;DR - Terms and Conditions

  • This company is based in Germany, so German law applies. Data protection laws in Germany are stricter than in most other countries, but otherwise this should make little difference for you.
  • When you run a Scenario, the programs executed to solve it are the property of contributors, and you are making a contract with that contributor. We are just an intermediary.
  • We try to make sure that only useful software gets executed, but if it should happen that a malicious user uploads harmful software that slips through our nets, it's the fault of that contributor and not our fault.
  • Contributors can charge fees for the execution of their programs, and we take a 30% cut of that. Note that payment is not actually implemented yet. This may change later depending on the payment model(s) we decide on.
  • Contributors agree that this Software License Agreement is applied to all the software they upload. See here for the TL;DR version.
  • You can use the website without logging in, but if you do then the data you upload is made publicly available to developers so that they can improve their programs. Note: This feature has not actually been implemented yet (the data is not actually made available to anyone right now).
  • There is a whole list of things that Contributors and End-Users are not allowed to do in sections 7, 8 and 9 of the legal document. This is necessary since our legal counsel advises us that "just don't be an a**hole" is not valid legal phrasing and needs to be elaborated upon. If you are not an a**hole, you can safely skip reading this.
  • The data you upload is treated confidentially and will not be given to anyone. The exception to this is if you use the website while not logged in, as mentioned above.
  • You can choose security parameters that influence how critically Elody filters out programs uploaded by contributors. Relaxing these parameters means that you will be able to use programs that are newer and haven't been properly evaluated yet. If you choose security settings that are too lax when you are actually doing something with very high security requirements, you don't get to blame us if something bad happens.
