Your communication with us
BFS will not treat as confidential any communications you send to us by electronic mail or otherwise. BFS has no obligation to refrain from publishing, reproducing, or otherwise using your communications in any way and for any purpose.

BFS therefore requests that you not send such proposals. Please also refrain from sending original creative artwork, blueprints, demonstratives, designs, layouts, photographs, or samples. BFS has adopted this policy to prevent claims that we have copied such unsolicited ideas without authorization, when, in fact, we developed the idea independent of or even long before receiving the unsolicited proposal. If you do send us unsolicited proposals, then do so with the understanding that BFS may use any concepts, ideas, inventions, know-how, or techniques that you disclose in those communications for any purpose, including the developing, manufacturing, and/or marketing of goods, products, or services. BFS may do so free of any obligation to compensate you for that use.
