Please do not send us any unsolicited original creative materials such as scarf designs, artwork, clothing designs, etc. While we do value your feedback on our services and products, we request that you be specific in your comments on those services and products, and not submit any creative ideas, artwork, designs, suggestions or materials (unless specifically requested by us) via a contest or other program.
If, at our request, you send certain specific submission (e.g., scarf designs to enter a contest), the submissions shall be governed by the particular rules applicable to that specific request (e.g., contest rules).
