Access Hardware Program Terms

Thanks for your interest in Magic Leap’s Access Hardware Program (the “Program”)!

These Access Hardware Program Terms (these “Terms”) form a binding legal agreement between you and Magic Leap, Inc. (“Magic Leap”) with respect to the Program, so please read them carefully. You will be required to acknowledge your agreement to these Terms when you submit an Entry (as defined below). If you don’t agree to these Terms, you will not be able to submit an Entry and won’t be eligible to receive any awards described below.

Section 21 of these Terms contains an arbitration agreement which will, with limited exception, require you to submit any claims you have against Magic Leap to binding and final arbitration.

Magic Leap will communicate additional information regarding the Program to you via email to the email address you provide in your Entry.


1. Program Overview. Magic Leap will provide Developers (as defined below) with access to Magic Leap devices (“Devices”) to help them build compelling applications for spatial computing. Magic Leap will evaluate all eligible Program entries (“Entries”) and select Developers to receive access to Devices and, in Magic Leap’s discretion, other support and benefits (“Device Recipients”), as described in these Terms. See below for further details on eligibility, how to enter, selection of Device Recipients, and other information about the Program.

2. Participant Eligibility. An individual is eligible to participate in the Program, as an individual or as part of a team, if he/she: (a) is 18 years old or older; (b) has a Magic Leap ID (which can be obtained by clicking here and following the instructions); (c) does not already own a Device; (d) did not previously receive funding (or a Device) under a Magic Leap program (including Magic Leap’s Independent Creator Program); and (e) is not: (i) an employee, contractor, director, advisor, or consultant of Magic Leap or any of its affiliates, or or an immediate family member of any of the foregoing individuals, or (ii) an employee of a supplier, vendor, or retailer of Magic Leap or any of its affiliates. Each eligible Program participant, whether participating as an individual or part of a team, will be referred to in these Terms as a “Developer.”

3. Entry Eligibility. An eligible Entry is one that is: (a) completed in its entirety in accordance with the applicable instructions; (b) submitted during the Program Period (as defined below); and (c) in the English language.

4. Awards. Magic Leap will award access to at least 500 Devices. Magic Leap will ship Devices, at Magic Leap’s cost, to Device Recipients at Device Recipients’ provided address. The odds of a Developer receiving access to a Device will depend on the number of eligible Entries received and quality of the Developer’s Entry, as measured against the evaluation criteria described below. Any transfer or substitution of Devices will be at Magic Leap’s sole discretion. The approximate retail value (“ARV”) of each Device is $2,295. The ARV of all Devices is at least $1,147,500.

5. When and How to Enter. Magic Leap will accept Entries beginning on February 11, 2020 at 10:00 am ET and ending when Magic Leap announces that all Devices have been awarded (collectively, the “Program Period”), subject to change by Magic Leap in its sole discretion. Magic Leap will use reasonable efforts to announce on its website when the Program Period is ending, reasonably prior to such time. To enter, click here and follow the instructions. Only one (1) Entry per Magic Leap ID. Magic Leap will not accept entries that appear to be duplicate entries submitted by different people (either as an individual or as part of a team). Magic Leap will treat all Entries as non-confidential, and Magic Leap has no obligations with respect to any Entry. Developers are responsible for all costs and expenses (if any) associated with submitting Entries.

6. Evaluating Entries. Magic Leap’s evaluation of Entries and decision to award access to Devices will occur on a rolling basis. All eligible Entries will be evaluated by Magic Leap personnel. The evaluation period for each Entry will be fifty (50) days after submission of that Entry (“Evaluation Period”). Entries will be evaluated and Device Recipients will be selected based on the following criteria: (a) the Developer’s publishing experience; (b) the quality of the Entry, including the proposed experience’s ability to showcase the Magic Leap platform’s capabilities and address an articulated market need; (c) project feasibility, including the strength of the Developer’s resources to develop the content proposed in the Entry; (d) the strength of content fit for Magic Leap’s goals and publishing timeline; and (f) the evaluators’ confidence that the Developer will publish the content proposed in the Entry. Magic Leap’s selection of Device Recipients will be final and cannot be appealed.

7. Notification and Acceptance. Magic Leap will notify Device Recipients by email (to the email address provided in the Entry) within ten (10) days after the end of the applicable Evaluation Period with additional instructions about awarded Devices and any other applicable Program benefits. Magic Leap isn’t responsible or liable for late, lost, misdirected or unsuccessful efforts to notify a Device Recipient. A Device Recipient will not receive any award if the Device Recipient does not accept an award within two (2) weeks after notification, the Device Recipient is ineligible, or the award or award notification is not deliverable.

8. Device Recipient List. To obtain the first name, last initial, city, state (if applicable), and country of the Device Recipients, send a self-addressed, stamped envelope marked “Hardware Access Program List” to Magic Leap (at the address at the end of these Terms), c/o Senior Director, Developer Relations. Residents of Vermont and Washington do not have to include return postage. Requests for a Device Recipients list must be received no later than 90 days following the last day of the Program Period.

9. Taxes. Device Recipients will be responsible for all applicable taxes related to any awarded Device. The fair market value of any award is generally considered taxable income. Device Recipients (a) may be issued a 1099 U.S. Tax Form or other applicable IRS Form for the retail value of the prize, and (b) will be required to provide a IRS Form W-9 or W-8 (as applicable) prior to receiving their award.

11. Independent Development.

You acknowledge that multiple products (including products of a similar nature) may be in simultaneous development for Magic Leap’s platform at any time.
