SUBMISSIONS

TomCat Productions is pleased to hear from our loyal fans and welcomes your comments regarding TomCat Productions or Zurich Mansion Tours or Haunted Mansions Around the World products, including TomCat Production's online services. Unfortunately, however, TomCat's company policy does not allow it to accept or consider creative ideas, suggestions, or materials other than those it has specifically requested. We hope you will understand that it is the intent of this policy to avoid the possibility of future misunderstandings when projects developed by TomCat's professional staff might seem to others to be similar to their own creative work. Accordingly, we must, regretfully, ask that you do not send us any original creative materials such as stories or character ideas, or screenplays. 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, suggestions, or materials.

If at our request you send certain specific submissions (e.g., postings to TomCat Productions' art / photos, chat boards, or contests) or, despite our request that you not send us any other creative materials, you send us creative suggestions, ideas, notes, concepts, or other information (collectively, the "Submissions"), the Submissions shall be deemed, and shall remain, the property of TomCat. None of the Submissions shall be subject to any obligation of confidence on the part of TomCat, and TomCat shall not be liable for any use or disclosure of any Submissions. Without limitation of the foregoing, TomCat shall exclusively own all now known or hereafter existing rights to the Submissions of every kind and nature throughout the universe and shall be entitled to unrestricted use of the Submissions for any purpose whatsoever, commercial or otherwise, without compensation to the provider of the Submissions.
