SEAWORLD PARKS & ENTERTAINMENT, INC.
UNSOLICITED IDEAS POLICY


SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment, Inc. and its affiliated and subsidiary companies and brands (“SEA”) highly values our guests and welcomes guest comments and feedback regarding experiences at our theme parks and other parts of our business. However, we ask that our guests not send us unsolicited creative ideas, suggestions and materials, due to our company policy prohibiting us from accepting or considering such submissions.



Unsolicited Ideas


SEA is an innovative company that actively works to develop creative ideas and products on its own pertaining to technologies, marketing materials and other aspects of our business. To preserve our ability to innovate, it is the policy of SEA not to accept or consider ideas, suggestions, proposals or materials from outside the SEA organization including but not limited to creative concepts, new or improved products or product enhancements, new or improved advertising or marketing campaigns / promotions, new or improved technologies or processes, artwork or other ideas or materials, other than those SEA has specifically requested, which terms are memorialized in a separate agreement. This policy is not intended to prohibit the receipt and response to SEA guest feedback, but rather to avoid future misunderstandings about creative ideas when new products, services and features should SEA independently develop ideas or concepts similar or even identical to a third party’s idea.


Due to the volume of unsolicited ideas and proposals for ideas, products and services, and the business and legal challenges of determining whether an idea is truly a “new” ideas or materials, SEA must adhere to this policy of not accepting or considering any unsolicited ideas, and not compensating anyone for unsolicited materials of this nature.

If you do not agree to these terms, please do not submit an unsolicited idea to us.
