We have signed NDAs and Confidentiality agreements with every China factory and supplier that we work with. We only share information with the factory on a strictly “need to know” basis that is critical to their manufacturing and protect the rest of your IP. In addition we perform surprise visits to the factory to make sure they are not manufacturing anything that they are not suppose to be or infringing on any of our customers IP. Most of our factories we have worked with for over 10 years so we have built a trust and relationship with them. Lastly, we always encourage our customer to apply for China patents in addition to their US patents in order to have added legal protection in China as well.
