Endeavor Products Company deeply appreciates the efforts of inventors who wish to submit projects for review. The nature of these submissions and the legal considerations associated with them require that the procedures and conditions set forth in this Agreement be accepted and agreed to before proceeding with your submission. Endeavor is continually engaged in research, development and marketing of its own inventions. In the course of these activities Endeavor uses and accesses ideas, unpublished materials, inventions and products of its own and of others. There is always the possibility of a conflict between your submission and items being developed by Endeavor. For this reason, Endeavor cannot consider any submission that creates a confidential or contractual obligation: this Agreement shall not curtail the ability of Endeavor to pursue business interests in any way.
Before making any submission, you should protect your proprietary rights to your own satisfaction. You should discuss any questions regarding this Agreement with a professional advisor of your own choice. Endeavor is not responsible for any expense related to advice on your submission or for the protection of your idea. Submissions must be made following the Process detailed at this website. If the submission is covered by an issued patent, the patent # should be provided. You should keep the original or an exact copy of your submission for future reference. Materials submitted to Endeavor will not be returned.
In the act of processing and evaluating your submission numerous people both inside and outside of organizations related to Endeavor may learn the details of your submission. Therefore, Endeavor can not treat your submission as confidential or secret.
Your submission will be reviewed under guidelines set independently by Endeavor. You will be told if there is interest in your submission. If there is no interest in your submission, Endeavor may not contact you or offer an explanation.
It is agreed and understood that, with regard to your submission, no confidential relationship or obligation of any kind exists between you and Endeavor unless and until a formal written agreement has been entered into, and then, only as expressed in that agreement.
The rights and liabilities arising out of your submission are defined solely by the protection available under applicable United States laws relating to patents, copyrights and/or trademarks. Except to the extent that any feature of your submission is protected by a claim of an in-force US Patent, or copyright or trademark protection, Endeavor shall be free to use your submission and information gained from researching your submission in any way. Nothing contained in this Agreement, or the receipt and evaluation of your submission, shall limit the right of Endeavor to contest the validity or infringement of any asserted protection.
Material similar to your submission may already be known to Endeavor either in the public domain or in prior art patents or in the known works of others, including the past and present works of employees and associates of Endeavor. Materials of similar nature may be submitted to Endeavor. Endeavor is under no obligation to reveal patents or projects the same or similar to your submission or to reveal any information learned through investigating your submission.
Any negotiations that may arise between you and Endeavor with regard to acquiring the rights to a submission shall not be prejudicial to Endeavor in any way and shall not be considered an admission of any novelty or usefulness or priority or originality of the submission.
This submission is being made solely at the request of the submitter. The submitter represents a good faith belief that it has the sole and complete right(s) to offer the submission to Endeavor and that no other person or company has any rights to the submission.
This Agreement applies to Endeavor, their employees, agents and affiliated companies. This Agreement also applies to any additional written or oral disclosures which might be made incidental to the submission, whether made before now, at the same time as this submission, or at a later date. These conditions may be superseded only by a subsequent written agreement between the submitter and Endeavor.
This Agreement will be governed by Massachusetts law and all disputes under this Agreement will be settled in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association to be held in Boston, Massachusetts.
