Our rules

  • Unless otherwise indicated by a third-party API's Terms of Service, all intellectual property remains in the hands of developers.
  • Tnooz does not monitor, control, or otherwise have anything to do with any legal contracts that developers enter into as part of signing up for API access.
  • All projects must present to the judges at the end of the hackathon to be considered for finalist status and prizes.
  • No stealing or infringing on copyright or intellectual property. 
  • No using a product that already exists; if using an existing idea or project, submissions must be significantly different. For example, startups are welcome to come to the hackathon and hack together a standalone feature or service that might integrate with an existing product but still stand on it's own. 
  • Tnooz reserves the right to share and promote your product, service, or tool to its global audience of travel professionals. 
  • Take risks, try new things, and have fun! 

Prize eligibility

  • While they can compete, and be named a finalist, teams that represent companies larger than 50 people are not eligible for any cash prizes. These teams are considered as working as employees of that company. 
  • As long as not officially representing a company, teams that comprise employees participating under their own time are eligible for prizes. These teams are considered as participating as personal citizens. 
  • Startups under 50 people are welcome to field teams and can be eligible for cash prizes. 
  • Any decision about eligibility will ultimately rest with the tnooz team. 

The Hackathon Code of Conduct

We abide by the Hack Code of Conduct,. We expect participants to follow these rules at hackathon and workshop venues and hackathon-related social events.

  • Our hackathon is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of the following. Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, nationality, or religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, photography or audio/video recording against reasonable consent, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.
  • Photography is encouraged, but other participants must be given a reasonable chance to opt out from being photographed. If they object to the taking of their photograph, comply with their request. It is inappropriate to take photographs in contexts where people have a reasonable expectation of privacy (in bathrooms or where participants are sleeping).
  • Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.
  • As this is a hackathon, we like to explicitly note that the hacks created at our hackathon are equally subject to the anti-harassment policy.
  • Sponsors and partners are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, sponsors should not use sexualized images, activities, or other material. Sponsor representatives (including volunteers) should not use sexualized clothing/uniforms/costumes or otherwise create a sexualized environment.
  • If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of hackathon staff immediately.
  • Hackathon staff will be happy to help participants contact any local security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the hackathon. We value your attendance.
  • If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the hackathon organizers may take any action they deem appropriate. This includes warning the offender, expulsion from the hackathon with no refund (if applicable), or reporting their behavior to local law enforcement.
