UNSOLICITED INVENTOR SUBMISSIONS
We understand that you have an idea that you believe may be new and of interest to Igloo. You should realize that an idea that you believe is new is often already in the public domain or is the same or similar to ideas already developed by our own staff. The nature of these submissions requires the adherence to certain procedures and conditions as set forth herein and completion of the Letter of Understanding before we can consider your submission. Igloo will only consider review of product idea submissions that are covered by an issued patent or pending patent application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”). All such submissions must be accompanied by a signed and agreed to Letter of Understanding. We will attempt to contact the submitter within 120 days if we are interested in the submission.
You may forward your submission, with proof of patent or patent pending, and the fully executed Letter of Understanding to:
