Document Summary

This non-disclosure and non-circumvention agreement imposes mutual obligations on both parties. The agreement prevents the receiving party from disclosing any confidential information. It also prevents the receiving party from bypassing the disclosing party and contracting with certain parties whom the disclosing party deals with which may be detrimental to the disclosing party.


A non-circumvention clause asserts that no transaction in relation to the disclosed confidential information can be proceeded without obtaining the disclosing party’s approval. This will protect the disclosing party from being denied fair compensation to which it may be entitled.
