Amazon’s Terms of Service for Sellers: Paragraph 14: Potential improvements, ideas, or suggestions to Amazon.
There were no changes to the BSA in this section.
This section essentially states if you or your affiliates elect to provide or make available suggestions, comments, ideas, improvements, feedback or materials to use in connection with Amazon services, Amazon has the right to do whatever they want with it.
They can go ahead and use the information, they can market it, they can disclose it to another individual.
So any potential improvements, suggestions or ideas you present to Amazon, things you think might make their system more fluid, or anything else, they have the right to do whatever they want with that information. Sellers should be aware of this before giving them any such advice / suggestions on services.
In addition, Amazon states that in cooperation with any governmental agency or potential lawsuit, they have the right to disclose such information as well as the information contained by the sellers in their system.
What Amazon is implying is that any information that you put out on the platform is ultimately theirs and they own those rights. We always want to inform our clients and any sellers in general, to always be wary of this and whatever information they post. This is just another thing to look out for when you are selling on such a big online platform like Amazon. All that information that you post is not safe.
