Website Legal Information

You would not expect to enter into a contract with me if you viewed my print brochure or saw an advertisement I had placed, using this website is just the same.

If you use the contact form I will treat the information as confidential but it would be prudent to establish a client relationship before showing me details of your invention or anything that you do not intend to communicate to the public.
