While our Innovation and Technology department is busy developing our products, we thank you for approaching us with your invention.
MUSTANG SURVIVAL CONDUCTS BUSINESS FAIRLY
If original, your invention will be respected as such. If your invention is not original, there is a good chance that we have seen it before. Original inventions are more likely to provide benefits. The process of determining the category in which your invention belongs is governed by some basic rules to avoid misunderstandings.
Your invention should pass the following tests:
- It is, or is associated with, a working product. Mustang Survival requires well thought out product and does not use this process for sales promotions and inventions;
- It is a new invention to the public, industry and Mustang Survival;
- It would be commercially viable for Mustang Survival.
PATENTS ARE PREFERRED

THE NEXT STEP

- Mustang Survival may consider your invention, but only at your request.
- We must be assured that you have full legal rights to the invention.
- Submission of your invention to Mustang Survival, including a New Product Disclosure Form, does not establish a confidential relationship and we do not assure secrecy.

- Mustang Survival assumes no obligations without a signed Confidential Disclosure Agreement. This agreement would be obtained after a successful evaluation.
- Submitting your invention to Mustang Survival for evaluation releases no rights to any patent, or patent application, that you hold. Nor is Mustang Survival obligated to you, with respect to your invention, until a formal written agreement is completed.
