We hope that with the analysis of this question: "Who is bound by the confidentiality agreement?" we demonstrated that signing a confidentiality agreement is never an innocent act. When signing a confidentility agreement, a company makes at least two commitments. The first one consists in taking every possible step to keep confidential information out of third parties' reach. The second one consists in never using such information for another purpose than the one for which it was disclosed.
