  • You must have a PayPal account to receive any payment
  • Once your work for a BugFix has been completed, the bugbounty_review@openoffice.org has to be notified for further processing.
  • By entering, you are certifying you are eligible to take part and that it is legal for you to do so
  • By entering, you accept that the decision of the Programme team is final
