We are not responsible for the availability of any other sites to which any of The Coleman Institute sites link. We do not endorse or take responsibility for the contents, advertising, products or other materials made available through any other site. Under no circumstances will we be held responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any loss or damage that is caused or allegedly to have been caused to you in connection with your use of, or reliance on, any content, goods or services available on any other site.

We welcome your comments about any part of The Coleman Institute site. However, unless a site has set up a specific submissions policy, we will not review or consider any unsolicited creative submissions. We hope you will understand that this policy is intended to avoid the possibility of future misunderstandings in the event that projects developed by our professional staff might seem to others to be similar to their own creative work. Accordingly, we must ask that you not send us any original creative ideas, suggestions or materials.
If, despite our request, you send us any creative idea, suggestion or material (“Submission”), it shall become our property. No submission will be subject to any obligation of confidence by us, and we will not be liable for any use or disclosure of any submission. We will exclusively own all known or later-existing rights to the submission worldwide, and will be entitled to the unrestricted use of the submission for any purpose, without compensation to the provider of the submission.
