On 9/22/2021, we called Unilever, the parent company for Good Humor, and spoke with Jerome about our WuCream Truck idea. He recommended we give them our idea on their web page HERE.
According to Unilever, before submitting our idea, we must agree to the following terms:
Before proceeding, you must be able to agree with all of the following statements and indicate your agreement by clicking on the tick box below.
I understand that the information being disclosed will be reviewed and evaluated independently on behalf of Unilever by yet2.com. Upon submission, yet2.com will issue a reference number unique to the submission only, and each separate submission will require a new reference number.
I am submitting information with the express intention that it imposes no confidentiality obligations on yet2.com or Unilever. Furthermore, my submission does not breach any confidentiality obligations that I owe to others.
There is no legal reason why I can not submit information. I am not underage or otherwise legally incompetent.
I am relying solely on my own IP rights to protect the contents of my submission. By making a submission, I am not granting, other than for the purpose of evaluation, any rights in relation to any patent, copyright or design. I am not relying upon yet2.com or Unilever in any way for legal advice, including (but not limited to) whether the contents of my submission can be protected under IP law.
I recognise that Unilever may already be independently working on the same technology as covered by my submission. I agree that no contractual obligation or working relationship is being created between myself and Unilever by submitting this information.
I recognize that I will be asked to provide information which is personal to me, such as name and e-mail address, such that yet2.com may process this information in order to evaluate my submission. If the submission is of interest, I may be required to sign a further Agreement with Unilever so that any confidential information, that is subsequently shared, is protected.
We did not feel comfortable with these terms on the following point:
“I am not underage” is not an accurate statement.In fact, all of the main members of the WCT team are underage.
Finding out that Good Humor is taking this position has been very upsetting for us to discover. It means, Good Humor is not willing to consider hearing our idea. Time to get their attention another way! Keep checking out our website for updates!
