All parties must undertake their own due diligence and make their own assessments of the value of the projects on offer and the competence of the students involved.

In all instances organisations are expected to adhere to the standards and requirements of the participating universities.

Charges, Fees and Commissions
The Prodigy MSc Project Programme is offered as a free service and there are no charges levied on students, universities or organisations. In addition, if an offer of fulltime employment is made to a participating student, DSF will not charge a fee of introduction. This has been done to ensure that as far as possible barriers to employment are removed and that the students participating in the programme are given every opportunity to launch their careers.
Data Science Foundation membership fees: We do not charge membership fees to universities and individual members. We do charge membership fees to commercial organisations, which are payable on a voluntary basis. We hope organisations will support the work we are doing and will pay fees by direct debit, but these fees will be waived on request.
DSF is not responsible for the actions of Prodigy participants or any injury or loss suffered. Your attention is directed to the Liability and Disclaimer section of the Legal Policy.
Participants with a complaint or grievance about Prodigy, its participants or any other matter arising should in the first instance address their concerns to Prodigy Admin at firstname.lastname@example.org. The matter will be investigated. Please note that where appropriate the relevant student, university and organisation will be made aware of the complaint and be asked to participate in the investigation. Depending on the outcome of the investigation the matter may be referred to the disciplinary team at a participating university, organisation or other agency. Participants who have in the opinion of Prodigy Admin, been found not to have acted in a reasonable or fair manner, or have brought Prodigy into disrepute will be removed immediately from the Prodigy programme and may have their membership of the Data Science Foundation revoked.
