Terms of participation

Read all conditions carefully and confirm them finally.

By registering your FIRST LEGO League Junior (FLL Junior) team, you as the team coach agree with having read the following terms of participation and follow them. As a FLL Junior coach you are responsible to forward the terms of participation to all team members, volunteer assistants as well as to further persons involved in the FLL Junior Team.

1. FLL Junior Coach

I note that each team has to appoint at least one adult coach (min. 18 years). He is the main contact and in charge of the team and co-coaches.

As HANDS on TECHNOLOGY e.V. would like to ensure the prosperity of the children taking part in FIRST LEGO League Junior we reserve the right to have coaches and mentors checked by police.

I agree that I will be the person coaching the team during the whole FLL Junior season. If there will be a change and another coach taking over my position, HANDS on TECHNOLOGY e.V. has to be informed within the next 5 working days. To take over an existing team the new coach needs to confirm the terms of participation as well. If the coach does not contradict the terms of participation within 5 working days after taking over the team the terms are considered to be accepted.

2. Communication with the FLL Junior Organisation via e-mail & website

I note that:

  • the communication within the FLL Junior programme will be via email and the FLL Junior website. Therefore, I have to indicate a valid e-mail address for communication means with the FLL Junior Organisation (HANDS on TECHNOLOGY e.V.).
  • the FLL Junior Newsletter comprehends important information about the current season.
  • my e-mail address can be passed on to other FLL Junior teams.
3. FLL Junior Team Number

I agree to use the given FLL Junior team number for each correspondence with HANDS on TECHNOLOGY e.V.

4. Team Composition

Hereby, I take note of the fact that each FLL  Junior Team should consist of up to 6 children aged between 6 to 10. The deadline for the age restriction is the 1st of January of the year when the tasks of the FLL Junior Challenge are published. According to that the age restriction deadline for 2018 is the 1st of January 2018.

No team member may be simultaneously registered in several teams.

I note that I have to register another team if the team consists of more than 6 children.

I can register several teams. All teams have to participate in the same exhibition region.

5. Shipping FLL Junior Inspire-Set

I take note that the FLL Junior Inspire-Set will be sent at the end of July 2018 to the delivery address specified by me (only if the invoice is paid). If the FLL Junior Inspire-Set can’t be delivered (e.g. due to holiday time, wrong address, etc.), I agree that the new shipment will be charged on me. The FLL Junior Inspire-Set will be sent after payment.

6. Cancellation of team registration

I agree to inform HANDS on TECHNOLOGY e.V. as soon as possible if my team cannot take part in the exhibition. Teams need to be deregistered at HANDS on TECHNOLOGY e.V. Please give notice to HANDS on TECHNOLOGY e.V. immediately. Deregistration notices to FLL Junior Regional Partners only cannot be accepted. In case of the cancellation of a team registration no costs will be paid back.

7. Usage of Picture Rights within the Context of FLL Junior

I take note of the fact that there can be media coverage on the FLL Junior exhibition day, including print, radio and TV.  Teams may be accompanied by journalists e.g. during the preparation period or a reporter follows the happenings of the exhibition by the example of a particular team. As a coach I am responsible for providing a photo permission for each team member of their legal guardian. If a child won't get a photo permission, HANDS on TECHNOLOGY e.V. suggests that this child won't attend the FLL Junior exhibition, as HANDS on TECHNOLOGY e.V. cannot guarantee, that there won't be any photo or video material made of the child. All rights of use on pictures or other materials that have been taken within the context of FLL Junior Central Europe reside with HANDS on TECHNOLOGY e.V. The usage outside of the  FLL Junior context is only permitted after having received a written confirmation by HANDS on TECHNOLOGY e.V.
