You understand that by accessing or using any of the Platform Services, you agree to become bound by these Terms as posted, which may be updated and changed by us as needed. We will notify you of any material changes to these Terms through a notice sent to you by email to the email address you have registered with us. Your continued use of the Platform Services after the effective date of the amended terms will constitute your acceptance of the amended Terms. It is your responsibility to check the Website prior to using the Platform Services for any updates or changes that may impact you. These Terms constitute a legally binding document and failure to comply with these Terms may result in the termination of your relationship with WeSolv. Use of the Platform Services is available only to legal entities and persons who are the age of majority for the state in which the entities or persons reside.
WeSolv provides a platform whereby participating partner companies (each, a “Company”) may post case competitions (also referred to as “Enterprise Challenges”), source ideas or use WeSolv’s user database to identify and recruit potential job candidates from among WeSolv’s user pool of prospective students, students, and recent graduates (each, a “Student”). Companies may be commercial enterprises, not-for-profit organizations, local, state, or federal governments (including agencies of the United States government), or other entities. By using the Platform Services, you acknowledge that WeSolv does not control in any manner the nature, quality, legality or timing of Enterprise Challenges. You agree that WeSolv is a neutral forum for Enterprise Challenges to be posted and for Students to submit proposals or ideas for any individual Enterprise Challenge (each, a “Solution”). Companies request the posting of Enterprise Challenges and invite Students to submit Solutions in accordance with individual Enterprise Challenge rules (“Enterprise Challenge Rules”). If Student applies to a Enterprise Challenge, he or she agrees to these Terms and all applicable Enterprise Challenge Rules.
WeSolv will use reasonable efforts to keep postings related to the results of Enterprise Challenges and any monetary or material compensation given to Students for their activity through the Platform Services (“Enterprise Challenge Rewards”) as current as possible. However, we do not guarantee that the postings or content on the Website will be current at all times.
