Confidentiality Agreement Italian

In Italy, the confidentiality clause is widely used, in particular in supply, licensing and distribution agreements, both in the pre-contractual phases and during the execution phase of the negotiations and the agreement. In general, the agreement can be unidirectional, with only one party committing secrecy, or bidirektional, both parties. If DDNs are used to prevent a person from discovering abusive behavior, the validity of using such an agreement is now questioned. The revelation that Harvey Weinstein used robust NDAS to prevent his victims from speaking out raised an ethical dilemma about the ability to protect criminal behavior by an NDA. His victims have been freed from the limits of the agreements they have signed. The main purpose of the confidentiality agreement is the confidentiality of information, data, patents, know-how or commercial documents. In particular, such an agreement shall contain the identification of the parties, the mention of the secret information, the time limit and the indication of the applicable law. The agreement may also provide that secrecy applies only after the termination of the contract, as well as certain technical measures to strengthen the protection of confidentiality. Confidentiality agreements (NDAs) are used to seal lips in a number of situations in almost all industrial sectors.

Organizations, especially the many industrial sectors that need constant innovation and new developments, must ensure that their research, discoveries and breakthroughs are protected. In addition, large business deals could be completely derailed if rivals learn of the deal before it is concluded. Similarly, confidentiality clauses are often added to settlement agreements entered into when an employee leaves a company after being subjected to discriminatory or other ill-treatment by his or her employer. The inclusion of a confidentiality clause is intended to prevent the terms of the settlement agreement from being known to all in order to avoid reputational damage and to prevent other staff members from asserting claims (with or without reason) in the hope of obtaining a financial agreement. In a recent case before the High Court, Duchy Farm Kennels Limited -v- Steels, where payments made under the settlement agreement to Mr. Steels were suspended because Duchy Farm Kennels believed that Mr. Steels had breached the confidentiality clause of the agreement and were therefore no longer required to continue to make payments to him. . . .
