There are three common approaches to defining confidential information: (1) using a system for identifying all confidential information; (2) list of categories of trade secrets; or (3) explicitly identify confidential information. Your relationship with the receiving party is usually defined by the agreement you sign. For example, an employment, licensing or investment agreement. To 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 enter into a third-party agreement. In other words, the receiving party can claim to be your partner to get an advantage from a reseller or sublicensee. To avoid liability in such a situation, most agreements contain a provision such as this, which excludes any relationship other than that defined in the agreement. We recommend that you include such a provision and ensure that it is adapted to the agreement. . . .
