This is a month to month service agreement, with documents and other tangible results varying per engagement.
In connection with ALIGNMT LLC’s (“ALIGNMT”) relationship with your company, its related parties, subsidiaries and assigns (“Company”) with the consideration of a possible working relationship (“Relationship”), the Company and its advisors and agents are prepared to make available to ALIGNMT certain information which is non-public, confidential or proprietary in nature (the “Confidential Material”). ALIGNMT agrees to treat all Confidential Material confidentially and to observe the terms and conditions set forth herein. ALIGNMT shall not be required to maintain the confidentiality of those portions of the Confidential Material that: (i) become generally available to the public other than as result of a disclosure by ALIGNMT or any of its representatives, (ii) were available to ALIGNMT on a non-confidential basis prior to the disclosure of such Confidential Material pursuant to this Agreement; or (iii) become available to ALIGNMT on a non-confidential basis from another source other than the Company. ALIGNMT agrees that it will not use the Confidential Material for any purpose other than in connection with its evaluation of a potential Relationship. ALIGNMT agrees not to use the Confidential Material in any way directly or indirectly detrimental to the Company. In particular ALIGNMT agrees that for a period of twelve (12) months from the date of the signing of this Agreement that ALIGNMT will not knowingly use the Evaluation Material (unless in connection with the Relationship) to: (i) divert or attempt to divert any business or customer of the Company or any of its affiliates; nor (ii) use or disseminate the Confidential Material in a way that could be potentially harmful to the Company or any of its affiliates. ALIGNMT shall not be required to maintain the confidentiality of those portions of the Confidential Material that may become generally available to the public. However, excepting that circumstance, ALIGNMT will at all times maintain the privacy and confidentiality of such Confidential Material so as to safeguard against the disclosure of same. To that end, ALIGNMT acknowledges that such use or dissemination of such Confidential Material may be injurious to the Company and its affiliates. In the event that ALIGNMT or anyone to whom ALIGNMT transmits any Confidential Material in accordance with this Agreement are requested or required (by deposition, interrogatories, requests for information or documents in legal proceedings, subpoenas, civil investigative demand or similar process), in connection with any proceeding, or are otherwise required by law, to disclose any Confidential Material, ALIGNMT will give the Company prompt written notice of such request or requirement so that the Company may seek an appropriate protective order, and each party will cooperate with the other to obtain such protective order. In the event that such protective order or other remedy is not obtained, ALIGNMT (or such other persons to whom such request is directed) will furnish only that portion of the Confidential Material which, in the written opinion of ALIGNMT or its counsel, is legally required to be disclosed and, upon the request of the party originally disclosing such Confidential Material, use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain assurances that confidential treatment will be accorded to such information. The parties agree that the disclosure of Confidential Material pursuant to this paragraph shall not constitute a breach of this Agreement. If either party decides that it does not wish to proceed with a potential Relationship, it will promptly notify the other party of that decision. In that case, or if the Company shall elect at any time to terminate further access by ALIGNMT to the Confidential Material for any reason, ALIGNMT will promptly redeliver to the Company all copies of the Confidential Material, destroy all notes related to the Confidential Material, and deliver to the Company a certificate executed by one of ALIGNMT’ duly authorized officers indicating that the requirements of this sentence have been satisfied in full. Notwithstanding the return or destruction of Confidential Material and notes, ALIGNMT and its representatives will continue to be bound by their respective obligations of confidentiality and other obligations hereunder. Each party agrees that money damages would not be a sufficient remedy for any breach of this Agreement by the other party or its representatives, that in addition to all other remedies each party shall be entitled to specific performance and injunctive or other equitable relief as a remedy for any such breach, and each party further agrees to waive, and to use commercially reasonable efforts to cause its representatives to waive, any requirement for the securing or posting of any bond in connection with such remedy.
