Attention! All information made accessible to DÜRR DENTAL in this recommendation shall be regarded as public information and thus non-confidential. Documents labelled "Confidential" or similar shall be ignored. The documents shall be deleted from our portal and the idea rejected.

Patents and other forms of intellectual property are used for determining the ownership rights and for protecting the legal rights of the owner of innovations and developments. If there is no protection of the intellectual property, we reserve the right to reject your submission.

That your innovation should be registered as a patent is beyond our responsibility. DÜRR DENTAL cannot dissuade you of a patent or using another form of protection of intellectual property. For further information on the type of intellectual property and its use, you can refer to your representative or corresponding authorities, for example:

"I am aware that I have been instructed on a property right for the protection of the information contained in my recommendation which was registered at DÜRR DENTAL prior to communication of the recommendation (patent application, trade mark application, use or design application) or that was previously obtained (copyright). Any protection of the information contained in my recommendation is limited to the protective scope of these rights. I am aware that I must secure appropriate legal protection (e.g. through a patent application) before I disclose my ideas to anyone (be it DÜRR DENTAL or any other third party) on a non-confidential basis, and otherwise run the risk of forfeiting the possibility of obtaining legal protection in accordance with the applicable law.

Dürr Dental does not take any confidential information into account for the initial review of your idea. If we express interest after the initial review of your idea, we shall contact you and make all necessary agreements.

Every submission is reviewed and assessed by DÜRR DENTAL. This normally means a review by several participants and an evaluation of the idea for technical feasibility and subsequent benefits to the customer.

A decision that the idea will be pursued further is dependent on its profitability and customer benefits. You will be informed of the status of your idea in any event.

Each idea is assessed for its chances of success. No standard amount has been defined.
