Thank you for your interest in Quinoa. In order to clarify the intellectual property license granted with Contributions from any person or entity, Triad National Security, LLC (“Triad”), as operator of Los Alamos National Laboratory (“LANL”) must have a Contributor License Agreement (CLA) on file that has been signed by each Contributor, indicating agreement to the license terms below. This license is for your protection as a Contributor as well as the protection of LANL and the Quinoa users; it does not change your rights to use your own Contributions for any other purpose.
If you have not already done so, please complete and sign, then scan and email a pdf file of this Agreement to [email protected]. Alternatively, you may send it by facsimile to LANL at 505-665-3125.

Please read this document carefully before signing and keep a copy for your records.
You accept and agree to the following terms and conditions for Your present and future Contributions submitted to LANL, and any future M&O contractor. In return, LANL shall not use your Contributions in a way that is contrary to the public benefit or inconsistent with its goals and objectives as a federal laboratory. Except for the license granted herein to TRIAD, future M&O contract assignees, and recipients of software distributed by LANL, You reserve all right, title, and interest in and to Your Contributions.
Definitions. “You” (or “Your”) shall mean the copyright owner or legal entity authorized by the copyright owner that is making this Agreement with TRIAD. For legal entities, the entity making a Contribution and all other entities that control, are controlled by, or are under common control with that entity are considered to be a single Contributor. For the purposes of this definition, “control” means (i) the power, direct or indirect, to cause the direction or management of such entity, whether by contract or otherwise, or (ii) ownership of fifty percent (50%) or more of the outstanding shares, or (iii) beneficial ownership of such entity.
“Contribution” shall mean any original work of authorship, including any modifications or additions to an existing work, that are intentionally submitted by You to TRIAD for inclusion in, or documentation of Quinoa (the “Work”). For the purposes of this definition, “submitted” means any form of electronic, verbal, or written communication sent to TRIAD or its representatives, but excluding communication that is conspicuously marked or otherwise designated in writing by You as “Not a Contribution.”

You represent that You are legally entitled to grant the above-referenced Patent License and the Copyright License. If your employer(s) has rights to intellectual property that you create that includes your Contributions, you represent and warrant that you have received permission to make Contributions on behalf of that yourself or your employer, that your employer has waived such rights for your Contributions to TRIAD, or that your employer has executed a separate Corporate Contributor License Agreement with TRIAD.
You represent that each of Your Contributions is Your original creation (see section 7 for submission on behalf of others). You represent that Your Contribution submissions include complete details of any third-party license or other restriction (including, but not limited to, related patents and trademarks) of which you are personally aware and which are associated with any part of Your Contributions.
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.
