YOUR COMMUNICATIONS TO SANRIO
Sanrio likes to hear from its loyal fans and welcomes your comments regarding Sanrio products and online services. Unfortunately, Sanrio cannot accept or consider creative ideas, suggestions, or materials, such as original artwork or ideas for characters, stories, products or games (collectively, "creative submissions") other than those we specifically request. This is to avoid the possibility of future misunderstandings when projects developed by Sanrio's professional staff might seem to others to be similar to their own creative work. Regretfully, we must therefore ask that you do not send us any creative submissions. If, despite our request that you not send such materials, you do send us creative submissions, Sanrio shall not be obligated to keep any such creative submissions confidential, and Sanrio shall not be liable for any use or disclosure of any creative submissions. By sending us creative submissions, you automatically grant to Sanrio a perpetual, royalty-free, irrevocable and unrestricted worldwide right and license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from and distribute the creative submissions or incorporate the creative submissions into any form, medium, or technology now known or later developed for any purpose, including advertising and promotion; and you automatically waive all "moral rights" with respect to the creative submissions.
