Certain Program Activities or resources may contain specific terms in addition to these Terms. In the event of a conflict between such specific terms and these Terms, the specific terms of such Program Activities or resources shall control.
By participating in the Program, each Educational Institution and each Member affirms that they have read and accept these Terms and meet all Program Eligibility criteria set forth herein.
The Intel® Skills for Innovation is designed for K-12 (or equivalent) schools. Additional eligibility requirements include:

Educational Institutions that meet the above requirements (each an “Approved Educational Institution”) are eligible to participate in the Program.
To qualify as a member of the Program (a “Member”) and be eligible for participation in the Program, individuals must meet the following eligibility requirements (unless otherwise granted eligibility by Intel):
Final determination of eligibility and Program tier assignment of Approved Educational Institutions is at the sole discretion of Intel Corporation (“Intel”).
Members must be employed at the time of all aspects of participation in the Program (or parts thereof) at an Approved Educational Institution. Members at an Approved Educational Institution that has been deactivated in the Program are not eligible.
An Approved Educational Institution may be disqualified and removed from the Program if they become incompatible with the Program as determined by the Intel, or the Approved Educational Institution may be reassigned to a different Program in Intel’s sole discretion.
Once a determination of disqualification or Program reassignment has been made, Members employed with that Institution will be sent an e-mail, providing a 90-day notice of deactivation or reassignment of the Institution and all Member Accounts (defined below) registered to the Program under that organization. Additionally, Members with current employment verification will have their verification renewed for an additional 90 days. During this 90-day period, Members may continue to participate in all aspects of the Program for which they are eligible.
If a Member has obtained employment at another eligible organization, they will need to update their Account with the correct information within the 90-day period to keep their Account active.
In order to participate in the Program, each Member must register and establish a Program Account (“Account”). Members are limited to one (1) active Account per person. To register each Member must:

If a Member wishes to close their account or remove content they have submitted, they will need to request this by contacting Help Desk Support. Once an Account is deactivated, Members will not be able to participate in any aspect of the Program. A deactivated account may be reinstated upon request on a case-by-case basis at Intel’s sole discretion.
Intel may terminate a Member’s Account at its absolute discretion and for any reason. Activities that may result in a Member’s termination from the Program include but are not limited to:

Member conduct should be guided by common sense, professional behavior, and basic etiquette, as well as these Terms and any other Program Activity-specific terms. Members must also obey state, local, federal, and international laws where applicable.
Impersonating other users or Members or sending false verification information is considered fraudulent activity and will result in the termination of Member’s Account, and may result in a Member being permanently banned from the Program. Intel reserves the right to prosecute any individual engaging in fraudulent or illegal activity.
