However, this is not good news for the party that gives the compensation. And if you check the standard document of a third party, it is very likely that you are the one giving the compensation. In general, there is no good reason for parties to award compensation under an NDA, and this is certainly something that warrants more careful legal thinking and advice. An exemption is a contractual obligation to pay money. Lawyers like them because it may be easier to assert a right in compensation than for breach of a standard contractual obligation. They may also vary the normal rules regarding the types of losses available for claim. The confidentiality agreement should indicate the specific obligations of each party with regard to the information in question. The clauses cover these obligations, such as .B. Confidentiality agreements (NDAs) are legally binding confidentiality agreements that identify information that one or both parties wish to keep confidential and prohibit public or private disclosure of that information. There are a number of potential benefits to being compensated as subject to advertising, for example. B not necessarily be required to reduce losses and delays in claims.
However, the absence of compensation does not limit a depositor`s ability to claim damages (although with the need to reduce a loss) or to pursue other remedies, such as claims for omission. This is of course provided that the NDA is properly formulated! Employers use confidentiality agreements to optimize their business by freely sharing information with employees while protecting that data from disclosure to their competitors. Examples of confidential business information are strategic plans, processes, marketing strategies, customer lists, knowledge, technologies, and proprietary relationships. An information service provider should check whether compensation is necessary (and what form it takes). For example, damages under the common law may in any event provide an appropriate remedy, since the likely “habitual” loss of unlawful disclosure would be compensated, provided causality can be demonstrated. For example, if a recipient has used confidential information in violation of a confidentiality agreement that has led the information provider to lose the benefit of a third-party contract, that loss may be reinstated by damages for breach. Compensation is preferable if the damage possibly suffered as contractual damage is too low (e.g. B the probable loss is too specific to the information provider to be borne by the recipient) and would therefore not be reimbursable as ordinary damages for infringement. Account should be taken of the category of damage, the category of damage covered, the related language and the type of conduct covered by the offence.
Companies around the world spend a huge amount of time and therefore money achieving privacy or NDAs with their many potential customers or suppliers before they can even discuss with them the purchase or sale of their products or services. When I recently checked another NDA, I thought there needed to be a simpler and better way to address the issue of defining the principle of confidentiality of disclosures in routine sales negotiations for products and services. While I fully accept that other transactions may warrant a custom NDA, these agreements are essentially very similar and should be relatively simple. Although some of the detailed formulations of each NDA have been historically different, in substance all: this often seems to be the main sore point of the NDA negotiations. Discussions with customers make it clear that very few (if any) would be willing to compensate the offender for violating an NDA. . . .
