Confidentiality Agreement Switzerland

April 9, 2021 Uncategorized 0

This proposal contains a unilateral Swiss confidentiality agreement (confidentiality agreement; confidentiality agreement). The unilateral nature of the agreement means that only one party is bound by confidentiality obligations. Unilateral confidentiality agreements can be used in any context in which a party transmits sensitive information to the counterparty and wishes to guarantee the confidentiality of that information and/or the fact of its cooperation. Confidentiality agreements are generally used in the investigation and/or negotiation of (potential) transactions in the context of any form of cooperation (joint venture, joint development, etc.), the establishment of commercial relations or other projects in which confidential information is exchanged. Confidentiality clauses are also applied by Swiss companies with respect to their trade secrets when it is considered that workers have the obligation of confidentiality, i.e. the obligation not to disclose confidential information or trade secrets. Among these, IT companies use confidentiality clauses, but they also use Swiss intellectual property law, which allows them to protect their patents or trademarks.
