Congratulations on your selection to participate in the Verizon 5G First Responder Lab program!  All participants that desire to access Verizon’s 5G Labs and test their project with Verizon’s systems must agree to the following terms in order to participate.  In exchange for your compliance with these terms and conditions, you may be given certain access to Verizon’s Confidential Information, 5G network, related technologies, and other support for use in connection with your project. This agreement is made and entered into as of the date of your signature below (the “Effective Date”) by and between you and “Verizon”, which refers to Verizon Innovation LLC and any other Verizon affiliates providing services hereunder (individually and collectively, “Verizon”), with offices located at One Verizon Way, Basking Ridge, NJ 07920.  If you agree to the terms, please sign where indicated below.

Confidential Information

  1. In the course of your activities with Verizon’s 5G Labs, Verizon may provide you with non-public information about its networks, operations, business, research and development activities or other information that it keeps confidential ("Confidential Information"). Confidential Information includes information shared in any format (e.g., written, graphic, electronic, visual, oral, etc.), so long as it has been identified as "confidential" or "proprietary" if disclosed in writing, or if disclosed orally, it is identified at the time of disclosure as confidential or proprietary or if such information should reasonably be believed to be confidential. Confidential Information may include information that is confidential to the disclosing Verizon’s equipment suppliers, vendors, or other contractors and you agree that those third parties have the right to enforce the confidentiality provisions of this agreement with respect to their Confidential Information.  However, Confidential Information will not include any information that (i) through no fault of your own becomes publicly known, (ii) was known to you before Verizon’s disclosure, (iii) you receive from a third party under no obligation of confidence to Verizon, or (iv) you are required to disclose by law.
  2. You agree not to disclose Confidential Information except (a) to other participants of the 5G First Responder Lab program who have agreed to this Agreement; (b) to Verizon’s employees and contractors that are involved with Verizon’s 5G Labs; or (c) when given written permission by Verizon to do so. You also agree only to use Confidential Information in connection with the program and not for any other purpose. In the event of an unauthorized disclosure and/or misuse of Verizon’s Confidential Information, you agree to immediately notify Verizon and cooperate with Verizon to mitigate such disclosure and/or misuse.
  3. Once the proram is completed or if your participation in the program ends (or at any time on request from Verizon), you agree to destroy all Confidential Information in your possession or, upon request of Verizon, deliver all copies of the Confidential Information to Verizon.

Intellectual Property

  1. You retain any intellectual property rights you may have in your work on your project, subject to Verizon's rights in its own intellectual property and Confidential Information.
  2. Verizon hereby grants you a non-exclusive license under its intellectual property rights in any materials Verizon contributes to your project ("Company Materials") only to the extent necessary for you to participate in the program, and such license terminates at the end of the program. Some Company Materials (for example, software, online resources or APIs) may require additional terms and conditions, and if present those terms will be made available to you and will take precedence over any conflicting terms in this agreement.  Any information you receive from Verizon is provided AS IS, may be experimental and subject to change, and no commitment is made to keep online resources available.  You agree that Verizon shall not have any liability for your actions/inactions in the course of the program.  You acknowledge that Verizon (either by itself or through its suppliers and other contracting parties) may currently or in the future be conducting research and/or development activities for products or services in areas similar to that of your project but independent of your project, and you agree not to assert any intellectual property rights you may obtain from your work on the project against Verizon (or its suppliers or other contracting parties) with respect to any of Verizon’s independently developed products or services.
