What is ACID IP Tracker? - The Detail

ACID IP Tracker is a simple, cost effective, ACID branded electronic process of tracking delivery of intellectual property (IP) led and confidential information. It determines the original and intended location of IP property in transit. Tracking (in the form of an acknowledgement confirming confidentiality from the recipient) is evidence of the completion of this process. No documents can be opened without acceptance of the terms of agreement associated with this. The ACID IP Tracker logo is licensed to registered users of this process.

What does it do?

  • Ensures that graphic designs, drawings, submissions to tender, responses to brief and indeed any other confidential intellectual property (IP) rights based information sent to a third party has the safeguard of evidence of confirmed delivery for the sender with a copy held by ACID.
  • Sending information via ACID IP Tracker reverses the burden of proof for copying and makes taking legal action a lot easier as the recipient has to show why they did not copy.
  • Raises awareness about respect for intellectual property origination. It adds another layer to your paper trail of IP ownership and trust around creative collaboration to maximise return on original investment.

What doesn't it do?

It does not prove the date of origination of designs, nor does it add to intellectual property rights.

How secure is it?

  • Firstly, you should always ensure that the recipient of your e-mail has given you a correct e-mail address.
  • Your sent files will also be copied to ACID's secure server and will receive the same degree of confidentiality as submissions to our Design Data Bank. No third parties are ever given access to this information without the express consent of the IP Tracker user.
  • Your file cannot be accessed unless the recipient agrees to the terms of agreement under which the file has been sent
  • The ACID Trading website has a SSL certificate for secure hosting.

What does it cost?

  • £3.50 (inclusive of VAT) per transmission for ACID Members... not a Member? (Please note that the cost relates to one email recipient and not per file added to the .zip)
  • £5.00 for non-members
