3M United States
As a leader in applying science to life to provide innovative products and technologies to our customers, 3M actively pursues open innovation opportunities with business partners. We also welcome customer comments regarding 3M products and services. However, 3M has a policy that does not allow 3M or its employees to accept on a confidential basis, or to agree to hold in confidence, any unsolicited ideas, suggestions, proposals, product concepts, and the like. In addition, 3M cannot agree to provide any compensation for any such unsolicited submissions. This policy is intended to avoid any misunderstandings if 3M decides to use customer suggestions or ideas to improve its products or services, or if new 3M products or services developed independently by 3M include features or improvements that were also suggested by a customer. Due to the volume of unsolicited customer ideas we receive, 3M hopes you can understand that we cannot acknowledge or respond to each, so although your submission is appreciated, you may not hear back from 3M.
Thank you for thinking of 3M.
If you choose to submit an unsolicited idea or other information to 3M, then by making the submission, you agree that the following terms apply, regardless of any contrary statements accompanying your submission.
