INVITATION TO INNOVATION
Do you have the next patent pending or patented game or technological innovation that can help us create the finest gaming products and experiences in the galaxy? If so, your invention may be of interest to Galaxy Gaming.
You may not submit and Galaxy Gaming will not accept unsolicited ideas that are mere concepts, new or improved ideas for games (including game concepts, plots, characters, or illustrations), technologies or products, advertising campaigns, new promotions, art work, game names or titles unless the same are sought to be protected or are protected by a pending or granted patent.
In order to protect both your rights and Galaxy Gaming’s rights, it is required that you review and agree to the Terms and Conditions before sending your submission to Galaxy Gaming. Please note that by agreeing to these terms, you are not obligated to disclose to Galaxy Gaming any information. However, any information you do disclose must be and is deemed to be non-confidential.
TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Submitter agrees that any and all ideas, concepts, know-how, inventions, technologies, patents, patent applications, and associated materials (collectively referred to as the “Submission”) that Submitter submits to Galaxy Gaming shall be governed by these Terms and Conditions.
Submitter understands that Submitter must file for patent protection before disclosing the Submission to anyone (including Galaxy Gaming or any other party) on a non-confidential basis or else risk losing the ability to protect such Submission with patent rights under applicable law.
Submitter agrees that the Submission will not be considered or treated by Galaxy Gaming as a “trade secret” or as “confidential” unless the disclosure is covered by a separate formal, written confidentiality agreement signed by Galaxy Gaming prior to the time the information is disclosed to Galaxy Gaming.
Submitter warrants and represents that Submitter is the sole owner, or authorized representative of the sole owner, of the entire right, title, and interest in the Submission and that Submitter has the full and exclusive right to disclose such Submission to Galaxy Gaming.
Submitter agrees that (i) Submitter is not submitting the Submission to Galaxy Gaming in confidence, (ii) Submitter does not have any expectation that the Submission will be held in confidence, (iii) Galaxy Gaming does not need to keep the Submission confidential, and (iv) Galaxy Gaming may disclose the Submission for any purpose to employees, consultants, third parties or any other persons it sees fit.
Submitter acknowledges that the Submission and its consideration by Galaxy Gaming create no confidential, fiduciary, or other relationships, express or implied, between Submitter and Galaxy Gaming.
Galaxy Gaming will give the Submission such consideration, if any, as Galaxy Gaming, in its sole and absolute discretion, believes that it deserves. Submitter further agrees that Galaxy Gaming shall not be obligated to provide Submitter with any information whatsoever concerning the nature, extent, or results of Galaxy Gaming’s evaluation of the Submission. Galaxy Gaming shall not be responsible for any lost or discarded materials included with the Submission, and Galaxy Gaming shall have no obligation to return the Submission to Submitter. Submitter agrees that submitting the Submission to Galaxy Gaming does not create an obligation for Galaxy Gaming to view or review the Submission, and that providing the Submission is not evidence of Galaxy Gaming‘s receipt of the Submission, nor does it create a presumption that Galaxy Gaming has seen or reviewed the Submission.
If Galaxy Gaming chooses to do so, it may seek a formal written agreement with Submitter relating to the Submission and the written agreement may provide for the payment of compensation to Submitter. However, Submitter agrees that Galaxy Gaming will be under no obligation of any kind with respect to this Submission unless and until it enters into such a written agreement and then only according to the terms of that agreement.
Submitter agrees that neither the consideration of the Submission, nor any discussions Galaxy Gaming may have concerning the Submission, shall be construed in any way that is prejudicial to Galaxy Gaming. Submitter expressly recognizes and agrees that neither this Agreement nor the Submission shall be construed as creating any obligation on the part of Galaxy Gaming to retain Submitter’s services, to license or purchase the Submission, or to compensate Submitter in any manner, except as may otherwise be set forth in a separate subsequent written agreement.
Solely by submitting the Submission, Submitter is not transferring any commercial rights in the Submission to Galaxy Gaming. However, Submitter understands that that its exclusive rights and remedies relating to the Submission, or the use of such Submission by Galaxy Gaming, shall be limited to such rights and remedies, if any, as may be accorded to Submitter under the Patent Laws of the United States. Submitter also agrees that Galaxy Gaming shall at all times preserve and maintain all of its remedies and defenses under the United States Patent and other state and federal laws, including the right to contest the validity of any such patent, or any alleged infringement, as if Galaxy Gaming had never received the Submission from Submitter.
Submitter expressly understands and agrees that Galaxy Gaming both develops its own ideas and concepts and also receives submissions of ideas and concepts for games and products from numerous third parties. Submitter’s ideas and concepts may appear similar to ideas that Galaxy Gaming develops independently or otherwise receives, licenses, or purchases from third parties. Submitter agrees that any similarities between the ideas and concepts that Submitter submits and those developed by Galaxy Gaming or those licensed, purchased, or received by Galaxy Gaming from third parties, whether or not said similarities are coincidental, shall not give rise to any claims related to or arising out of such similarities, including but not limited to claims for copyright, trademark and/or trade secret infringement or idea misappropriation. Submitter agrees that Galaxy Gaming’s consideration of the Submission in no way limits or restricts Galaxy Gaming from using any ideas or concepts developed independently by Galaxy Gaming, using concepts or ideas submitted from third parties or licensing ideas or concepts from third parties, prior to, during, or after receiving Submitter’s Submission.
Submitter and Galaxy Gaming expressly agree that Submitter’s delivery and Galaxy Gaming’s receipt of the Submission is adequate consideration for these Terms and Conditions.
Only persons eighteen (18) years or older may make a Submission. By agreeing to these Terms and Conditions, Submitter warrants and represents that Submitter is 18 years or older.
Submitter agrees that there are no other statements or agreements, oral or written, made prior to or at the signing hereof, that apply to the Submission, that these Terms and Conditions supersede any prior agreements or understandings, and that no modifications or exceptions to these Terms and Conditions will apply unless agreed to by both Submitter and Galaxy Gaming in a separate written agreement.
These Terms and Conditions and any Submission made pursuant to this website will be governed, interpreted and construed under the laws of the United States and the State of Nevada without regard to its conflict of law principles. Both Submitter and Galaxy Gaming agree that the any dispute or litigation arising hereunder or related to the subject matter hereof or related to any Submission made hereunder shall be submitted exclusively to the jurisdiction of the state and/or federal courts physically located in Clark County, Nevada, and Submitter hereby agrees to personal jurisdiction in said courts.
In the event that any provision of these Terms and Conditions, including any sentence, clause or part hereof, shall be deemed contrary to law or invalid or unenforceable in any respect by a court of competent jurisdiction, the remaining provisions shall not be affected, but shall, to the maximum extent permissible in law, remain in full force and effect and any invalid and unenforceable provisions shall be deemed, without further action on the part of the parties hereto, modified, amended and limited to the minimum extent necessary to render the same as valid and enforceable.
