Unsolicited Idea Policy
We at QC Manufacturing, Inc. (“QC”) highly value your feedback regarding our existing products.
However, please do not send us unsolicited ideas, including ideas for new products, product
improvements, new technologies, processes, materials, services, advertising or promotion campaigns,
marketing, or new product names. QC employs a substantial number of engineers and research staff to
develop new products and improve existing ones. An idea submitted from an outside source may have
already been developed or may be under development by QC. To avoid possible misunderstanding as to
the origin of an idea, we do not review or evaluate unsolicited ideas or materials from outside parties.
We also strongly discourage outside parties from making such unsolicited submissions to QC or its
employees because there is no express or implied contractual or confidential relationships between QC
and an outside party with respect to any submission unless a specific written agreement is executed. QC
does not compensate anyone for unsolicited materials of this nature. This policy is not intended to serve
as a barrier to receiving and responding to your feedback. Rather, it is intended to avoid any future
misunderstandings about creative ideas should QC independently develop or already have developed a
product, technology, or other project that may seem similar in some respect to your idea.
If, despite our policy, you submit an unsolicited idea to QC, then you agree that: (1) your idea will
immediately upon submission become the sole and exclusive property of QC, without compensation to
you or any other person or party; (2) QC can use the idea for any purpose and in any way; (3) QC will
have no obligation to keep your submission confidential or proprietary, and shall not be liable for any
disclosure of the submission; and (4) there is no obligation for QC to review, keep, acknowledge, or
return the submission or any related materials. If you do not agree to these terms, please do not submit an
unsolicited idea to us.
QC welcomes your support, comments, questions, and feedback regarding our existing products. By
providing feedback or information to us, you agree that any feedback or information you provide is not
confidential and becomes, upon submission, the sole and exclusive property of QC. You further agree
that QC, and its affiliates are free to use such information on an unrestricted basis without
compensation to you or any other person or party.
