Dear Mr. Appleby,
I have reviewed the terms and conditions that were sent to me in a letter dated June 23, 2007. Unfortunately, I spilled coffee on the original document and therefore have copied the terms and conditions for submitting a project proposal to FRT Electronics below:
I understand that:
1. Samples or other submissions will be returned to the submitter only if return postage or freight is prepaid.
2. The company accepts no responsibility for loss of samples in its possession.
3. The company shall pay compensation only in the event it, a) accepts the idea, and b) reaches an agreement with the submitter about intellectual property rights and commensurate compensation.
Note: contracts are drafted on an individual basis and will vary according to the estimated value of the proposed products or idea.
The foregoing terms and conditions are understood and acknowledged:
June 25, 2007
I have also included the project proposal for your review. Thank you again for this great opportunity. I look forward to hearing from you.
