Confidentiallity Agreement
« on: March 04, 2005, 09:38:10 am »
Over the years it has come up that folks who were part of a beta test could not discuss certain aspect of the game or other issue related to the game because of an NDA.  This almost always lead to the question, "What is an NDA?"

Welp, here is a copy of the one that all of those who worked on SFCIII had to sign.

ACTIVISION CONFIDENTIALITY
AND NON-DISCLOSURE AGREEMENT


   It is contemplated that, from time to time, Activision, Inc. or its affiliates: Raven Software Corporation, TDC Group, Inc., Activision Europe, Activision, U.K. Ltd., Activision Japan Ltd. or Activision Australia Pty Ltd. ("Activision") may disclose or furnish information or materials to the undersigned some or all of which may contain Confidential Information (as defined below).  In consideration of Activision's furnishing of information and materials which may contain Confidential Information, ________________________________________________ hereby confirms its understanding and agreement as follows:

   1.   For purposes of this Agreement, "Confidential Information" shall mean information or material proprietary to Activision or designated as Confidential Information by Activision and not generally known by non-Activision personnel, of or to which the undersigned may obtain knowledge or access through or as a result of the undersigned's contact and/or relationship with Activision.  The Confidential Information includes, but is not limited to, the following types of information and other information of a similar nature (whether tangible or intangible and whether or not reduced to writing): discoveries, ideas, concepts, software in various stages of development, designs, drawings, plans, specifications, techniques, models, data, source code, object code, documentation, diagrams, flow charts, research, development, processes, procedures, "know-how", marketing techniques and materials, marketing and development plans, customer names and other information related to customers, price lists, pricing policies and financial information.  Confidential Information also includes any information described above which Activision obtains from another party and which Activision treats as proprietary or designates as Confidential Information, whether or not owned or developed by Activision.

   2.   The undersigned agrees not to reproduce any notes, data, reference materials, sketches, drawings, memoranda, documentation, records, or other Confidential Information, and if any such materials shall be entrusted to the undersigned, the undersigned agrees to turn over all copies of such materials to Activision upon request.

   3.   The undersigned agrees to hold in confidence and not to directly or indirectly reveal, report, publish, disclose or transfer any of the Confidential Information to any person or entity, or utilize any of the Confidential Information for any purpose at any time.

   4.   Because of the unique nature of the Confidential Information, the undersigned understands and agrees that Activision will suffer irreparable harm in the event that the undersigned fails to comply with any of his or her obligations under Section 2 or 3 above and that monetary damages will be inadequate to compensate Activision for such breach.  Accordingly, the undersigned agrees that Activision will, in addition to any other remedies available to it at law or in equity, be entitled to injunctive relief to enforce the terms of Section 2 and 3 above.

   5.   This Agreement shall be governed by the applicable laws of the State of California and the undersigned expressly submits to jurisdiction in the Los Angeles District.  This Agreement contains the full and complete understanding of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior representations and understandings, whether oral or written.

                      agrees to the above terms and acknowledge receipt of a copy of this Agreement.

Just commenting on a passing observation or is there a point?
