Please do not send unsolicited ideas to the Site, including but not limited to ideas for advertising campaigns, promotions, products, product improvements, processes, materials, marketing plans, or product names. Neither Bow Creek Farm nor any of its employees accept or consider unsolicited ideas. This policy is intended to avoid misunderstandings or disputes when Bow Creek Farm’s products, services, or marketing strategies seem similar to unsolicited ideas that were submitted to the Site.
If, despite our request that you not send us your ideas, you still send them, then regardless of what your submission states, the following terms shall apply to your submission: (1) you agree that your ideas will automatically become the property of Bow Creek Farm, without compensation to you, and you hereby assign and agree to assign to Bow Creek Farm all rights in and to such, and (2) you agree that Bow Creek Farm can use the ideas for any purpose and in any way—even give them to others.
Bow Creek Farm does, however, welcome your feedback regarding many areas of our existing business. If you want to send us your feedback—and we hope you do—just use our Contact Us page. Please provide only specific feedback on our existing products or marketing strategies (in other words, do not include any unsolicited ideas that our policy will not permit us to accept or consider). The foregoing Section 5.5 does not apply to Online Submissions, which are governed by elsewhere in Section 5.
You agree to indemnify and hold harmless Bow Creek Farm and its affiliates, officers, directors, employees, shareholders, information providers, suppliers and licensees (collectively, “Indemnified Parties”) from and against any and all liability and costs, including, without limitation, reasonable attorney’s fees, incurred by the Indemnified Parties in connection with any claim arising out of (a) your access and/or use of the Site, (b) any breach of any of these Conditions by you or any user of your account, and/or (c) any allegation which, if true, would constitute a breach of any of these Conditions by you or any user of your account.
