Unsolicited Ideas and Materials Prohibited; No Confidential or Special Relationship With Cryptiquest. Cryptiquest has its own creative team that develops new ideas and products.

Please do not send any original creative artwork, suggestions or other works. The sole purpose of this policy is to avoid potential misunderstandings or disputes when Cryptiquest’s products or marketing strategies might seem similar to ideas submitted to Us.
If (despite Our request that you not send Us your ideas) you still send Us Unsolicited Ideas and Materials, then regardless of what your submission says, you agree that: (1) your ideas will automatically become the property of Cryptiquest, without compensation to you, and (2) Cryptiquest can use the ideas for any purpose and in any way, even give them to others.
Our receipt of your Unsolicited Ideas and Materials is not an admission by Cryptiquest of their novelty, priority, or originality, and it does not impair Our right to contest existing or future intellectual property rights relating to your Unsolicited Ideas and Materials. Likewise, Our receipt of your Unsolicited Ideas and Materials does not create a confidential or special relationship between you and Cryptiquest.
