Greetings to all users and potential users of the Intel Manycore Testing Lab!
When you sign up for access to the lab, one final step is to click that you have read and agree with our Manycore Testing Lab Remote Access Agreement. At that point in the process, you can click on the link and read it, of course.
The purpose of this thread is to make the text of the agreement and its meaning available to you another way before you decide to request access. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to post them here in the Forum.

The following are the terms and conditions under which Intel Corporation (Intel), a Delaware corporation provides Manycore Testing Lab Remote Access Service (MTL).
Please read these terms and conditions carefully before accepting these terms by signing in the signature block at the bottom of this Agreement.

Company means company whose details appear in the signature block of this Agreement;
Service means Manycore Testing Lab Remote Access Service including any new features that augment or enhance the current Service.
1. Intellectual Property Rights
Intel acknowledges and agrees that Company shall retain all legal right, title and interest in and to its intellectual property and/or any data Company loads, operates, tests, or validates in the Manycore Testing Lab Remote Access Service.
2.2 As part of the registration process, Intel may create a "cookie," which contains Companys Service registration identifier and is placed on Companys system. Company may delete the cookie at any time, however, it will be re-created when Company re-enters the Service site.
When you apply for access to the MTL, you are not guaranteed that you will be given access, as there are a limited number of available slots and certain times of the year may be more popular than others. Also, some priority may be given to those who request classroom use for beginning-level courses (as opposed to more advanced courses) although participation from all levels of classes is invited.
If you are given access to the MTL there is no guarantee that it will be during the timeslot you requested, although every effort will be made to match your request with MTL availability. Its our hope that even if you dont get the timeslot you wanted, your plans may be flexible enough to use your assigned timeslot anyway.
If however you are given a timeslot you are not able to use for any reason, you must surrender that timeslot for others to use by contacting the MTL administration and explaining that the timeslot is not of use to you. If you are unable to use a particular timeslot you are given and you surrender it, its our hope you will apply for access again, but requesting a different access timeslot.
