Children Under 13
Pitch Round does not knowingly collect personal data, or accept applications, from children under the age of 13.

General Information Included in Your Application
Due to the large number of applications and related materials that we receive and review as Pitch Round entities, and the similarity of much of the information provided in such materials, we cannot accept responsibility for protecting against misuse or disclosure of any general information, knowledge or other materials (including without limitation any information generally known in your industry) included in or provided with your application.
Protection of intellectual property rights (ex. patents, trademarks, copyright, trade secrets, etc.) of your concept is your responsibility and your responsibility alone. If your application has an idea or product that you might want to patent, we strongly recommend applying for a patent or speaking to a lawyer before submitting your application to Pitch Round.
Information you include in your application will be shared with the set of reviewers that review your application. Please note that these reviewers do NOT sign Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs). Therefore, you should not include any information in your application that you feel could be harmful to your company should that information be disclosed.
Note that applying to Pitch Round is very similar to presenting your idea to potential investors. Very few investors (Venture Capitalists or "angel investors") will agree to sign an NDA before even hearing your initial pitch. It is up to you to determine the right balance between sharing enough information to get people interested and to give you credibility - and sharing information that could potentially be damaging to your company if it were to be disclosed.
