Management Services often require Contractors to have access to confidential information regarding the company. Within your service agreement, it’s important to make sure the Client knows confidentiality and ownership of intellectual property is maintained both during the Agreement and once it has ended.
The Contractor agrees to never reveal, report, or disclose any confidential information they obtain during this Agreement indefinitely.
Confidential information refers to, but is not limited to:
Data and information about the Client company
Data and information about personnel (both business and personal information)
Information that is not general knowledge or publically known
Any information that could cause harm to the Client.
All communication, information, and material provided by the Client to the Contractor are bound under the confidentiality of this agreement – regardless of whether the information was provided before, during, or after the Agreement was established.
This includes both written and oral communications.
