Our Confidentiality Agreement
WHEREAS, you (the "Disclosing Party") and yDrink LLC (the "Receiving Party") are pursuing discussions regarding a potential business relationship or transaction between the parties (the "Business Purpose"); and
WHEREAS, Disclosing Party and Receiving Party recognize that in the course of their discussions to further the Business Purpose, it may become necessary for Disclosing Party to disclose Confidential Information (as defined below) orally and/or in writing to Receiving Party. Both parties intend that any Confidential Information disclosed by Disclosing Party shall be used by Receiving Party only to further the Business Purpose. Further, both parties intend that any Confidential Information disclosed by Disclosing Party shall be protected from further disclosure by the terms of this Agreement.
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises, conditions, covenants and warranties herein contained, the parties agree as follows:
Confidential Information. For purposes of this Agreement, the term "Confidential Information" shall mean all information obtained by the Receiving Party from or disclosed by or on behalf of the Disclosing Party or any of its partners, shareholders, employees, officers, directors, contractors, consultants, advisors or affiliated entities, including any software, information, know-how, data, processes, techniques, trade secrets, or any information relating in any way to the Disclosing Party or any of its affiliated entities.
Applicability. This Agreement shall apply to all Confidential Information disclosed by or on behalf of Disclosing Party to Receiving Party.
Non-Disclosure Obligation. Receiving Party agrees:
to hold Disclosing Party's Confidential Information in strict confidence;
to exercise at least the same care in protecting Disclosing Party's Confidential Information from disclosure as Receiving Party uses with regard to its own confidential information (but in no event to exercise less than a reasonable degree of care);
not to disclose such Confidential Information to third parties; and
not to use any Confidential Information for any purpose except for the Business Purpose.
No Grant of Rights. Receiving Party recognizes and agrees that nothing contained in this Agreement will be construed as granting any rights to the Receiving Party, by license or otherwise, to use any of the Disclosing Party's Confidential Information except as specified in this Agreement. Receiving Party further recognizes that no agreement in furtherance of the Business Purpose shall exist unless and until a definitive agreement is executed by and between the parties hereto.
Equitable and Legal Relief. Each party acknowledges that all of the Disclosing Party's Confidential Information is owned solely by the Disclosing Party (and/or its licensors) and that the unauthorized disclosure or use of such Confidential Information would cause irreparable harm and significant injury, the degree of which may be difficult to ascertain. Accordingly, each party agrees that the Disclosing Party shall have the right to obtain an immediate injunction without posting a bond from any court of competent jurisdiction enjoining breach of this Agreement and/or disclosure of the Confidential Information. Each party shall also have the right to pursue any other rights or remedies available at law or equity for such a breach. In the event any action shall be brought by either party hereto against the other on account of the breach of any provision, covenant or condition herein contained the prevailing party in said action shall be reimbursed by the other party for all reasonable costs and expenses incurred in connection with litigation, including reasonable attorneys' fees. The acts and omissions of the directors, officers, employees and advisors of the Receiving Party shall be attributed to the Receiving Party.
Termination. This Agreement shall remain in effect and shall not terminate except upon the written consent of both parties.
Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is declared to be invalid, void or unenforceable, the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
Governing Law. This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of Texas applicable to agreements made and to be wholly performed therein, without reference to or application of principles of choice of law.
