A plain English NDA.
This agreement is between us (Meld Development Solutions, Inc., located at 208 SW 5th Ave, Portland, OR 97204) and you (client, located at client address).
We are developing a web and/or mobile application ("app") for you, and as part of that development, you will need to share confidential information with us. We agree not to share that information with anybody else, except as agreed here.
Confidential information includes only the items listed here:
trade secrets, source code of the application being developed, passwords and API keys
We’ll keep confidential information to ourselves and we won’t use it except to develop your app. We’ll take at least the same amount of precaution with your confidential information as we take with our own, such as keeping files, access to online systems and any user names and passwords in such a way that they don't fall into the wrong hands.
If we think that there’s even a possibility that any confidential information might have been compromised, we agree to tell each other us right away so we can take all necessary steps to protect it from becoming public. We also agree to help each other to resolve any problems that might arise if confidential information is compromised.
What's not covered?
Anything not listed in this agreement is not confidential information. If something is already in the public domain or becomes public, it's not confidential information, even if it's listed in this agreement. Although we hope that it will never happen, this agreement also does not cover a situation where we’re required by law to disclose something. If this happens, we'll let you know and try to help you keep it confidential.
This agreement will not prohibit us from working with any other party, provided that we continue to abide by this agreement.
How long does this agreement last?
We'll keep this agreement in effect until the confidential information has become public.
You can’t transfer this agreement to anyone else without our permission.
If it turns out part of this agreement isn’t enforceable, you and we will remove that part, and it won't affect the rest of the agreement.
If you and we have a dispute, the State of Oregon's laws will apply, except for the conflict of laws rules, and you and we will go to court in Multnomah County, Oregon.
