Hello! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to helping and providing you information today.

If you are still comfortable using the company then you should have a local attorney review the contract terms as the non-disclosure clause is key if contracting a company to perform work in developing an idea.

The area of law is very specialized and the consequences of not fully protecting yourself is too great.
All my best & encouragement.
