GEMS will make every reasonable effort to return or destroy any unauthorized idea submissions without detailed review of them. However, if a review is necessary in GEMS' sole discretion, it will be with the understanding that GEMS assumes no obligation to protect the confidentiality of your idea or compensate you for its disclosure or use. By submitting an idea or other detailed submission to GEMS through this Site, you agree to be bound by the terms of this stated policy.
