SUBMISSIONS
We are pleased to hear from our loyal fans and welcome your comments regarding our products, including our on-line services. Our long-standing company policy, however does not allow us to accept or consider unsolicited creative ideas, suggestions or materials.

Accordingly, we ask that you do not send us and we will not accept, consider or review any original creative materials such as songs, stories or character ideas, screenplays, or original artwork. While we do value your feedback on our services and products, we request that you be specific in your comments on those services and products, and not submit any creative ideas, suggestions or materials.
