Submitting Your Online Material to Us

All remarks, suggestions, ideas, graphics, comments, or other information that you send to Bucket Fillers, Inc. through our websites (other than information we promise to protect under our Privacy Policy), becomes and remains our property, even if this agreement is later terminated.

That means that we don't have to treat any such submission as confidential.  You can't sue us for using ideas you submit.  If we use them, or anything like them, we don't have to pay you or anyone else for them.  We will have the exclusive ownership of all present and future rights to submissions of any kind.  We can use them for any purpose we deem appropriate to our Bucket Fillers, Inc. mission, without compensating you or anyone else for them.  You acknowledge that you are responsible for any submission you make.  This means that you (and not we) have full responsibility for the message, including its legality, reliability, appropriateness, originality, and copyright.

Limitation of Liability

Bucket Fillers, Inc. will not be liable for any damages or injury that accompany or result from your use of any of our websites.
