Protecting your intellectual property is paramount. At every stage of the project we ensure that your ideas are guarded by our 5 point IP protection process. 

Protecting your IP is central to the way that we work


You can feel confident that you are always protected.

The cost of IP theft worldwide:

Australia approx. 1% of GDP ($15 billion)

Germany 1.5% of GDP

US and Netherlands 2% of GDP

We understand the importance of keeping your ideas protected, at all times.


We use a number of different measures to ensure that your IP remains protected at all times.

Your IP is protected


All of our discussions are covered by a mutual NDA.

The NDA is to protect your ideas as well as our methods of execution. This ensures that it’s clear that you own your intellectual property and are legally protected. Our agreements are designed to ensure that your interests remain protected, and have been vetted by the most reputable legal firms.

No Outsourced Development

So you can rest assured that your intellectual property will only be accessed by our team following the appropriate controls.
