Because of its nature, the subject of a know-how contract is inserted into the category of an intangible asset and, because it deals with an asset, its owner can use it freely. Therefore, this type of agreement can be concluded in two forms: a licence or a transfer of rights. Beta agreements under which the recipe or confidential information were developed confidentially and treated strictly as such. As part of this transfer, Beta undertakes to bind all its employees, senior executives, subcontractors, subcontractors, consultants, etc., who have had access to this confidential information as part of the normal transaction, to conditions relating to the confidentiality/non-disclosure of this revenue/confidential information, in accordance with the standard agreement on confidentiality/non-competition covered by Schedule B. Beta, including its board of directors and its direct beneficiaries, employees, ex-employees, consultants and all descendants of companies, interests and property, in recognition of the transfer of confidential and proprietary information to Alpha, agrees not to be in direct or indirect competition with the activities of Alpha and its successors and beneficiaries of the purpose of the agreement. , unless paragraph 2, point c), or approved in writing by Alpha after further approval.

Know-how is often seen as a scanning phrase of what cannot be defined in the human brain. Confidential information: means know-how as defined above. In addition to the following terms: (i) the terms of this agreement; (ii) trade secrets, business plans, strategies, methods and/or beta practices; and (iii) any other information about the beta or its activities that are not known to all, including, but not limited to, information about Beta`s future personnel, products, customers, marketing strategies, services or business plans. On the other hand, the know-how agreement represents a wider range of knowledge that actually enters secret areas (for example). B, technologies that relate to patented objects, either because they do not meet the relevant conditions or because the patent holder understands that they should not be patentable, among other things). The parties agree that this agreement contains the entire agreement reached between them. In addition, the parties agree that neither party can withdraw from the agreement.
