Unsolicited Idea Submission Policy

The people who love Nest are a lot like the people who work here. They love that technology is changing the world. They are creative and have ideas that they want to share with the world. As much as we appreciate sharing ideas, Nest has a long-standing policy to not accept or consider any unsolicited ideas for products, product improvements, product technologies, product names, advertising strategies, slogans, songs, jingles, etc. (“Submissions”). The reason for this policy is to avoid the potential for future misunderstandings or disputes regarding intellectual property ownership.

If, after reviewing our policy, you still choose to send us a Submission, you agree that, regardless of anything you say, write or record to the contrary, your Submission and its contents:

  1. Will be considered non-confidential and non-proprietary;
  2. May be used, redistributed, or disclosed for any purpose and in any way, without any compensation to you or any third party; and
  3. No obligation is created on Nest, including but not limited to reviewing, acknowledging, or returning any materials relating to the Submission.

Thanks for your love of Nest products and for understanding our need for this policy.
