This can allow for permanent protection of trade secrets while ensuring unequivocal protection of all other confidential information, allowing companies to comply with privacy legislation, while not invalidating NDSAs with „inappropriate trade restrictions“. One of the risks of accepting a fixed-term confidentiality agreement is that the depositor implicitly agrees that his confidential information will be free to the other party at the end of that fixed term. In most cases, this is not explicitly stipulated in the agreement itself. But we think that will probably be the consequence. Otherwise, why have a fixed duration in the first place? Confidentiality agreements are also called confidentiality agreements or NDAS. We use interchangeable names. The duty of the recipient is often linked to a certain level of diligence.
