Proprietary Design Agreement
Your relationship with the receiving party is usually defined by the agreement you sign. For example, an employment, licensing or investment agreement. For a stranger, it may seem like you have a different relationship, for example. B a partnership or joint venture. It is possible that an unscrupulous company will try to take advantage of this appearance and make a third-party deal. In other words, the receiving party can claim to be your partner to gain an advantage from a distributor or a sub-licensed. In order to avoid liability for such a situation, most agreements contain a provision such as this, which excludes any provision other than that defined in the agreement. We recommend that you include such a provision and ensure that it is adapted to the agreement. If you use it z.B in an employment contract, remove the reference to employees. If you use it in a partnership agreement, you insert the reference to partners, etc.

In the NDA, there is usually a sentence on „without prior written permission from the company… This means you can share confidential information when you receive permission.
