Contributor License Agreement

Thank you for your interest in The OWASP Foundation (the
"Foundation"). In order to clarify the intellectual property license
granted with contributions of software from any person or entity
(the "Contributor"), the Foundation would like to have a Contributor
License Agreement on file that has been signed by the Contributor,
indicating agreement to the license terms below. This license is for
your protection as a Contributor of software to the Foundation and does
not change your right to use your own contributions for any other purpose.

If you have not already done so, please complete this Agreement and
send it by facsimile to the Foundation at +1-208-379-1165, or send a
photocopy by regular mail to The OWASP Foundation,
9175 Guilford Road, Suite 300, Columbia, MD 21046, U.S.A. Please read this
document carefully before signing and keep the original for your records.

You and the Foundation hereby accept and agree to the following terms
and conditions:

contributions of source code and documentation to the

submissions that are conspicuously marked or otherwise designated in
writing by You as "Not a Contribution."

2. You hereby grant to the Foundation a non-exclusive, irrevocable,
worldwide, no-charge, transferable copyright license to use,
execute, prepare derivative works of, and distribute (internally

rights granted to the Foundation in this paragraph, You reserve all
right, title and interest in and to your Contributions. OWASP will always
release a free and open version of anything we distribute that
includes your Contributions.

3. You represent that you are legally entitled to grant the above
license. If your employer(s) have rights to intellectual property
that you create, you represent that you have received permission
to make the Contributions on behalf of that employer, or that your
employer has waived such rights for your Contributions to the
Foundation.

submission(s), each of your Contributions is your original creation.
You represent that your Contribution submission(s) include complete
details of any license or other restriction (including, but not
limited to, related patents and trademarks) associated with any part
of your Contribution(s) (including a copy of any applicable license
agreement). You agree to notify the Foundation of any facts or
circumstances of which you become aware that would make Your
representations in this Agreement inaccurate in any respect.

5. You are not expected to provide support for your Contributions,
except to the extent you desire to provide support. You may provide
support for free, for a fee, or not at all. Your Contributions are
provided as-is, with all faults defects and errors, and without
warranty of any kind (either express or implied) including, without
limitation, any implied warranty of merchantability and fitness for
a particular purpose and any warranty of non-infringement.
