Please read the following terms and conditions of the Apple Developer WWDC21 Interactive Events Attendance Policy carefully. In order to accept the Attendance Policy, you (A) need to be the age of majority in your jurisdiction (at least eighteen years of age in many countries) or have your parent or guardian’s consent to agree to these terms and (B) have the power to enter into a binding contract with Apple. If you do not or cannot accept to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Attendance Policy, you will be ineligible to request or participate in any Labs or Digital Lounges.

General

To participate in any WWDC21 interactive events, including Labs and Digital Lounges, as defined below, you must be a current member in good standing of the Apple Developer Program, Apple Developer Enterprise Program, or a WWDC21 Swift Student Challenge winner. You must agree to the terms and conditions of this WWDC21 Interactive Events Attendance Policy (“Attendance Policy”) before submitting a Lab request, attending a Lab, or participating on any Digital Lounges. If you do not agree, you may not attend a Lab or participate in any other WWDC21 interactive events. All Labs and Digital Lounges are conducted in English. You are responsible for the internet access and equipment necessary to attend a Lab or to participate in the Digital Lounges.

Labs Appointments

To request a WWDC21 lab appointment for one or more developer labs (“Lab(s)”), you need to sign in with the Apple ID associated with the applicable Apple Developer Program membership, choose a topic and time, and submit your questions. Apple will review your requests and send you an email with your status for attending a Lab. Labs are conducted by one or more Apple personnel, and language support may be provided, as available, and in Apple’s sole discretion.

Lab appointments are individual sessions for you that may not be sold, shared, auctioned, exchanged or otherwise transferred, unless otherwise permitted by Apple. If you have not attained the age of majority in your jurisdiction, your parent or guardian must attend the Lab with you unless they consent otherwise. In order to log into the Lab, you will be required to use WebEx, and may need to provide your name and email address.

Digital Lounges

You may also opt-in to participate on Slack channels related to various WWDC21 activities and topics (“Digital Lounges”). You are responsible for ensuring that your activities on the Digital Lounges comply with the Attendance Policy, and Apple reserves the right to discontinue any Digital Lounge or your usage of a Digital Lounge at any time in its sole discretion. In order to participate in the Digital Lounges (a) you will be required to use Slack, (b) you must be at least sixteen years old, and (c) only one registration request is allowed per person.

Apple reserves the right to terminate a Lab or participation in a Digital Lounge at any time in its sole discretion, including but not limited to participants behaving in an inappropriate manner or for failing to comply with this Attendance Policy. If you have an experience that violates this code of conduct, contact wwdc@apple.com. You agree not to record, take photos or screen shots of the Labs or Digital Lounges, without the prior written consent of Apple.

No Confidential Information

Apple works with many software developers and some of their products may be similar to or compete with the materials you submit. Apple may also be developing its own similar or competing apps, playgrounds, products or services or may decide to do so in the future. Any information, suggestions or recommendations that you provide to Apple in a Lab or Digital Lounge or submit in connection with a Lab or Digital Lounge will not be confidential, and Apple has no confidentiality obligations with respect to such disclosures.

You acknowledge and agree that no intellectual property rights are granted or to be implied by Apple to you as a result of your participation in a Lab. Apple retains all its right, title, and interest in and to any Apple intellectual property and no rights or licenses are granted or to be implied hereunder under any Apple intellectual property. We reserve the right to change the Attendance Policy and any other information contained on our sites at any time.

In the absence of a separate written agreement to the contrary, Apple will be free to use any information you provide to Apple at the Lab or Digital Lounges for any purpose, subject to any applicable proprietary rights.

Cancellation and Removal

Circumstances may arise requiring that Apple cancel your Lab, and Apple does not guarantee that you will be informed in advance of such cancellation. Apple does not ensure the quality of bandwidth or connection to any interactive events. If you cancel your Lab, you will not be able to reschedule another appointment. Apple reserves the right to remove any attendee from a Lab, Digital Lounge or other interactive event, at any time in its sole discretion (e.g., for improper behavior, inappropriate questions, or failure to comply with this Attendance Policy).
