It is a legally binding agreement and, by accepting it, you accept the terms of this agreement on behalf of the company with which you are employed, with whom you are linked or with whom you are linked. The exchange of valuable information with other partners is usually a necessity that is regularly done through collaborative or corporate initiatives. Confidentiality issues and measures to exchange information securely, facilitate the development of the project and ensure the non-disclosure of sensitive technologies, confidential business or business information should therefore be taken into account. Therefore, signing a confidentiality agreement or confidentiality agreement (NDA) at the proposal stage, or even before the proposal phase, the inclusion of confidentiality clauses in the consortium agreement and compliance with confidentiality obligations throughout the duration of the project and subsequently, among other things, are very important steps to keep confidential information secret in order to gain a competitive advantage. The subcontractor has the right to use subcontractors and the customer accepts the use of subcontractors. A list of pre-approved subprocessors is available in the SuperOffice Trust Center. The subcontractor ensures, in writing, that a subcontractor processing personal data by subcontractors is subject to the same obligations and restrictions as those imposed on the subcontractor under this data processing agreement. For example, if you create something that you ultimately want to patent, you could use this legal agreement to keep your creation secret while you want to get the patent. You can create an indeterminate NOA in which the confidentiality obligations of trade secrecy do not go away.
However, note that the indeterminate duration of secrecy should apply only to trade secrets and not to other ordinary confidential information (unless you have special rare circumstances to require such a long-term secret). In the Coca-Cola agreement, for example, they clearly distinguish temporal confidentiality obligations for ordinary confidential information and trade secrets. While the period of confidentiality of a trade secret must be extended indefinitely, they have imposed only a two-year period after the termination of the employment relationship for ordinary confidential information. That`s why, in order to help you develop your own privacy agreement, the European IPR Helpdesk has developed several models that can also be used under the Seventh Framework Programme (7th PCRD). Below is a list of all the new models: As for copyright, trademarks and designs, you can also use the agreement to preserve confidentiality until you are ready to register these rights.
