Become a Contributor !
Contributing to an open source project like One-Time Secret is awesome. We use an MIT-style license which means you're free to take the code and do whatever you want (just don't blame us if stuff goes wrong).
Because we offer a commercial version, in order to contribute back to the project we need to review and accept a contributors agreement. If you don't agree, you can still fork the project and commit your work there (we just won't be able to accept any patches or pull requests).
Please review the following and confirm if you agree.
One-Time Secret Contributor Agreement
These terms apply to your contribution of materials to a product or project
owned or managed by us ("project"), and set out the intellectual property rights
you grant to us (onetimesecret.com) in the contributed materials. If this
contribution is on behalf of a company, the term "you" will also mean the
company for which you are making the contribution. If you agree to be bound by
these terms, check the box below.
Read this agreement carefully before agreeing.
- The term "contribution" means any source code, object code, patch, tool,
sample, graphic, specification, manual, documentation, or any other material
posted or submitted by you to a project.
- With respect to any worldwide copyrights, or copyright applications and
registrations, in your contribution:
- you hereby assign to us joint ownership, and to the extent that
such assignment is or becomes invalid, ineffective or unenforceable,
you hereby grant to us a perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive,
worldwide, no-charge, royalty-free, unrestricted license to exercise
all rights under those copyrights. This includes, at our option, the
right to sublicense these same rights to third parties through multiple
levels of sublicensees or other licensing arrangements;
- you agree that each of us can do all things in relation to your
contribution as if each of us were the sole owners, and if one of us
makes a derivative work of your contribution, the one who makes the
derivative work (or has it made) will be the sole owner of that
- you agree that you will not assert any moral rights in your
contribution against us, our licensees or transferees;
- you agree that we may register a copyright in your contribution and
exercise all ownership rights associated with it; and
- you agree that neither of us has any duty to consult with, obtain
the consent of, pay or render an accounting to the other for any use or
distribution of your contribution.
- With respect to any patents you own, or that you can license without
payment to any third party, you hereby grant to us a perpetual, irrevocable,
non-exclusive, worldwide, no-charge, royalty-free license to:
- make, have made, use, sell, offer to sell, import, and otherwise
transfer your contribution in whole or in part, alone or in combination
with or included in any product, work or materials arising out of the
project to which your contribution was submitted, and
- at our option, to sublicense these same rights to third parties
through multiple levels of sublicensees or other licensing
- Except as set out above, you keep all right, title, and interest in your
contribution. The rights that you grant to us under these terms are effective
on the date you first submitted a contribution to us, even if your submission
took place before the date you sign these terms. Any contribution we make
available under any license will also be made available under a suitable
FSF (Free Software Foundation) or OSI (Open Source Initiative) approved
- With respect to your contribution, you represent that:
- it is an original work and that you can legally grant the rights
set out in these terms;
- it does not to the best of your knowledge violate any third party's
copyrights, trademarks, patents, or other intellectual property rights;
- you are authorized to sign this contract on behalf of your company
(if you are making the contribution on behalf of a company).
- These terms will be governed by the laws of the Province of Quebec and
applicable Canadian Federal law. Any choice of law rules will not apply.
