CLIF BAR’S Unsolicited Ideas Policy

Clif Bar & Company (CLIF BAR) appreciates your enthusiasm and the fact that you spend your hard-earned money to enjoy and nourish yourself with our products, in addition to taking your time to suggest CLIF BAR product improvements, changes and new flavors. CLIF BAR’S company policy, however, does not allow us to accept or consider any unsolicited ideas, suggestions, proposals, comments or materials (Submissions). The purpose of this policy is to avoid potential misunderstandings when CLIF BAR’S products, flavors or features might appear to be similar or identical to ideas submitted to CLIF BAR.

What happens if you send us Submissions anyway?

If, despite knowing our policy, you still choose to send Submissions to CLIF BAR, then regardless of what your letter says or to whom it is addressed, the following terms shall apply to your Submissions. You agree that:

  • CLIF BAR will consider the Submissions to be non-confidential and non-proprietary.
  • CLIF BAR shall have no obligations concerning the Submissions, including but not limited to, no obligation to return any materials or acknowledge receipt of any Submissions.
  • CLIF BAR may use, redistribute, or disclose the Submissions for any purpose and in any way, without any compensation to you or any third party.

Product Feedback

While we do not accept unsolicited ideas, CLIF BAR is always pleased to receive your feedback regarding its existing products. In fact, we take so much pleasure in hearing from our consumers that we read a consumer letter at our weekly All-Company Meeting! You may submit your feedback here. Please only provide specific feedback on existing products, and do not include any idea Submissions.

Any feedback you provide is deemed to be non-confidential and non-proprietary. CLIF BAR shall be free to use such information on an unrestricted basis, without any compensation to you or any third party.


In addition to the terms above, any information you provide in any submissions or product feedback will be subject our Privacy Statement and Terms of Use.
