Submission of unsolicited ideas

Whilst we enjoy feedback on our games and their content, we ask that you do not submit any creative ideas, materials or other suggestions in relation to our games. We ask this so that we each avoid any potential misunderstandings or disputes as to ideas and ownership should any of our current or future content seem similar to anything you may have submitted to us. We have lots of ideas in development at all times and it is possible that something we have been working on independently may be similar to something you have sent in.

Whilst we do not wish you to send in any ideas, we can’t stop you from doing so.

Having regard to the above grant, if and to the extent necessary, you undertake to execute and deliver any and all documents and perform any and all actions necessary or desirable to ensure that the rights to use such materials granted to us as outlined in the paragraph above are valid, effective and enforceable. You waive and agree not to assert those rights to the maximum extent permitted by the laws of your jurisdiction.
