- “Trade Secret” – For the purposes of this Agreement, Trade Secret shall mean information which is not in the public domain or accessible to Unauthorised Parties and which therefore has an economic value for the information holder. This applies regardless of the designation of the information (e.g. as business or manufacturing secrets). A Trade Secret may also exist if it was created by the Recipient in the course of his/her work for the Information Holder, even if the Information Holder has no knowledge of the Trade Secret. A Trade Secret can also be the information that the Information Holder uses certain procedures, software or service providers (even if they themselves are publicly known). Trade Secrets include in particular the information defined as Trade Secrets in the Annex to this Agreement:

The processing also includes the transmission or disclosure of personal data (Article 4 No. 2 GDPR).

- “Disclosure”- Disclosure is understood as any enabling of access, knowledge, transmission or other opening of confidential information.
- “Unauthorised Parties” – Unauthorised Parties are persons, companies or other Third Parties who do not have access to the Confidential Information in accordance with its intended purposes, including in particular employees of the Recipient and economically associated companies.

- If the Recipient discloses the Confidential Information to Third Parties and the Third Parties are not or should not have been known to the Information Holder, the Recipient is obliged, within reasonable limits, to provide the Information Holder, upon request, with a list of the third Parties and the Confidential Information concerned and to inform the Information Holder of the circumstances of the disclosure.
- The Recipient shall immediately inform the Information Holder about possible or impending violations of the protection of Confidential Information, already in case of justified suspicion (e.g. in case of loss of data carriers, misdirection of e-mails or unauthorised access to IT systems by Unauthorised Parties). The duty to report also arises to a reasonable extent if the Recipient is obliged by law, official orders and comparable mandatory measures to disclose the Confidential Information to Third Parties In all the above cases, the Recipient shall take all reasonable measures and efforts to assist the Information Holder in preventing or at least limiting the level of threat or disclosure of the Confidential Information as far as possible.
- If the Recipient intends to disclose Confidential Information and this disclosure is not already known to the Information Holder, the Recipient shall inform the Information Holder in advance (generally in text or written form) about the intended Disclosure and its reason and legal basis (e.g. invoking an exception from protection as a Trade Secret). The information in advance must be provided within a reasonable period of time, which is generally 14 working days. There is no obligation to provide information of the Disclosure in advance, if and to the extent that the information in advance is not possible or not reasonable for the Recipient. In this context, the Recipient is advised that matters within the Business Relationship must first be clarified internally and reported to the Information Holder before they are disclosed to Third Parties. Furthermore, the Recipient must take the legally permissible, possible and reasonable as well as necessary precautions to keep the extent of the Disclosure as limited as possible.
- If required by law, the Recipient shall enter into further agreements with the Information Holder regarding the protection of Confidential Information or make any necessary confidentiality and non-disclosure agreements (e.g. in the case of processing of personal data on behalf of the Information Holder).

- Companies or persons whose services are not used by the Recipient to perform obligations arising from the Business Relationship, but rather as a purely ancillary service in order to carry out the Recipient’s business activities (e.g. cleaning, security or transport services), as well as the involvement of employees of the Recipient of the Information, are not to be understood as commissioning of Third Parties within the meaning of this section “Commissioning of Third Parties” of this NDA. Nevertheless, the recipient of the information must ensure, e.g. by contractual agreements and instructions, that the security of the Confidential Information is not endangered and that the provisions of this Agreement and the law are respected.
9.5 Contractual Penalty Agreement
- The Recipient agrees to pay a contractual penalty to the Information Holder for each case of a culpable breach of the obligations for the protection of confidential information laid down in this Agreement or by law.

The time limit may be shortened or extended due to the circumstances of the individual case, but this requires the justification of the change in the time limit and must be reasonable and appropriate both for the other Party and with regard to other subjects, e.g. data subjects in terms of data protection. Alternatively, the Recipient shall, at the discretion of the Information Holder or if the return is not possible or reasonable for the Recipient (e.g. due to legal retention obligations), destroy, respectively delete the Information carriers, respectively access Authorisation(s) after consultation with the Information Holder. Destruction or deletion shall be carried out in such a way as to prevent the recovery of the Confidential Information. The applicable industry standards must be complied with. The Recipient of the information will confirm the destruction or transfer in an appropriate form, at least in writing, at the request of the Information Holder. The Recipient has no right of retention with regard to the Confidential Information.
- The obligations to protect Confidential Information arising from the confidentiality agreement shall continue to apply after the end of the Business Relationship provided that the information continues to be considered confidential for the benefit of the Information Holder and the compliance with the confidentiality obligation does not lead to an inappropriate or unreasonable restriction of the economic or professional activity of the Recipient. If such a restriction is to be expected, corresponding agreements will be made between the parties, in particular for a reasonable waiting period.
9.7 Governing Law, Jurisdiction and Final Provisions
- The legal relations between the Information Holder and the Recipient shall be governed exclusively by the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany.
