The manufacturer didn't sign a non-disclosure/confidentiality agreement. The manufacturer only accepts ideas outside the company from a specific web domain. The company's idea submission domain explains that by submitting the idea to the manufacturer that you have entered into a legal agreement with them. "We do not require that the submitter obtain, or even to have applied for, a patent on an idea before submitting the idea. If a disclosure is made under the conditions recited herein, and "MANUFACTURER" is interested thereafter in further considering the idea, negotiations will be undertaken to try to arrive at terms which are equitable to both parties and will take care of the needs of the particular situation."
Above is the submission link for the manufacturer, which lists the terms of the agreement. Thank you so much for your feedback... it's very helpful.
