We welcome your comments about any of the site. However, we will not review or consider any unsolicited creative submissions unless they are covered by a patent or a pending patent application. We hope you will understand that this policy is intended to avoid the possibility of future misunderstandings in the event that projects developed by our professional staff might seem to others to be similar to their own creative work. Accordingly, we must ask that you not send us any original creative ideas, suggestions or materials unless the submission is the subject of a patent or a pending patent application. Therefore, only those submissions which are patented or for which a patent application is pending will be considered for further evaluation by us. Such submissions may be sent to Wilton by sending via email to LegalDept@wilton.com or via regular mail to
