Unsolicited Submissions
Company is pleased to hear from its customers and welcomes your comments regarding Company products, including Company’s online services. Unfortunately, however, Company’s long-standing company policy does not allow it to accept or consider creative ideas, suggestions, or materials other than those it has specifically requested (see below). While we value your feedback on our services and products, we request that you be specific in your comments on those services and products, and that you not submit any creative ideas, suggestions or materials, including but not limited to stories or character ideas, screenplays, or original artwork. We hope you will understand that it is the intent of this policy to avoid the possibility of future misunderstandings when projects developed by Company’s or its affiliates' professional staff might seem to others to be similar to their own creative work. Accordingly, we ask that you do not send us any original creative materials such as show designs, photographs, drawings, or original artwork that you expect to be compensated for or that you would like to keep private. 

If you send or post certain specific submissions at our request (e.g., via message boards or in connection with contests) or if you send us creative suggestions, ideas, notes, photographs, drawings, concepts, or any other information (each, a “Submission” and collectively, the “Submissions”) despite our request that you not send us any unsolicited Submissions or other creative materials, the Submission will be treated as non-confidential and non-proprietary in each instance. For purposes of this Paragraph, all User Content shall be deemed included in the definition of Submissions. None of the Submissions shall be subject to any obligation of confidence on the part of Company, and Company shall not be liable for any use or disclosure of any Submissions. Any Submission may be used by Company without restriction for any purpose whatsoever, including, without limitation, reproduction, disclosure, transmission, publication, broadcast or posting, and you hereby irrevocably waive, release and give up any claim that any use of such Submission violates any of your rights, including, without limitation, copyrights, trademarks, moral rights, privacy rights, proprietary or other property rights, publicity rights, or right to credit for the material or ideas. Company shall have and is hereby irrevocably granted the right, but not the obligation, to reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, broadcast, license, perform, post, sell, translate, incorporate, create derivative works from, exploit, distribute and otherwise use the Submission in any and all media, now known or hereafter devised, throughout the universe, in perpetuity, without according you any compensation or credit. By submitting a Submission to the Site or Company, you represent that such Submission is original with you and does not violate or infringe upon the rights of any third parties, including, without limitation, any intellectual property rights and rights of publicity and/or privacy. Submissions to the Site and/or Company will not be acknowledged or returned. You agree and understand that Company is not obligated to use any Submission you make to the Site or Company and you have no right to compel such use. You hereby acknowledge and agree that your relationship with Company is not a confidential, fiduciary, or other special relationship, and that your decision to submit any material to Company does not place Company in a position that is any different from the position held by members of the general public with regard to your Submission. You understand and acknowledge that Company has wide access to ideas, stories, designs, and other literary materials, and that new ideas are constantly being submitted to it or being developed by Company’s own employees. Many ideas or stories may be competitive with, similar or identical to your Submission in structure, purpose, function, theme, idea, plot, format or other respects. You acknowledge and agree that you will not be entitled to any compensation as a result of Company’s use of any such similar or identical material.
