UNILATERAL NON-DISCLOSURE AGREEMENT
This unilateral nondisclosure agreement is between EVO, an individual (the "Disclosing Party") and I, an individual (the " Receiving Party").
The Disclosing Party has developed certain confidential information that it wants to make available to the Receiving Party for the purpose of PRODUCING A MUSICAL COMPOSITION.
The Receiving Party wants to review, examine, inspect, or obtain the confidential information only for the above-described purposes, and to otherwise maintain the confidentiality of that information pursuant to this agreement.
The parties therefore agree as follows:
1. CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION.
The Disclosing Party may (but is not required to) disclose certain of its confidential and proprietary information to the Receiving Party. "Confidential Information" means:
(a) information relating to the Disclosing Party or its current or proposed business, including financial statements, budgets and projections, customer identifying information, potential and intended customers, employers, products, computer programs, specifications, manuals, software, analyses, strategies, marketing plans, business plans, and other confidential information, whether provided orally, in writing, or by any other media, that was or will be:
(i) provided or shown to the Receiving Party or its directors, officers, employees, agents, and representatives (each a "Receiving Party Representative") by or on behalf of the Disclosing Party or any of its directors, officers, employees, agents, and representatives (each a "Disclosing Party Representative"); or
(ii) obtained by the Receiving Party or a Receiving Party Representative from review of documents or property of, or communications with, the Disclosing Party or a Disclosing Party Representative; and
(b) all notes, analyses, compilations, studies, summaries, and other material, whether provided orally, in writing, or by any other media, that contain or are based on all or part of the information described in subsection (a) (the "Derivative Materials").
The Disclosing Party shall identifies all material provided as Confidential Information. The Disclosing Party's failure to identify information as Confidential Information is not an acknowledgment or admission by the Disclosing Party that that information is not confidential, and is not a waiver by the Disclosing Party of any of its rights with respect to that information.
2. OBLIGATION TO MAINTAIN CONFIDENTIALITY.
(a) Confidentiality. The Receiving Party shall, and shall ensure that each Receiving Party Representative, keep the Confidential Information confidential. Except as otherwise required by law, the Receiving Party and Receiving Party Representatives may not:
(i) disclose any Confidential Information to any person or entity other than:
A. a Receiving Party Representative who needs to know the Confidential Information for the purposes of its business with the Disclosing Party;
B. with the Disclosing Party's prior written authorization; or
(ii) use the Confidential Information for any purposes other than those contemplated by this agreement.
(b) No Reverse Engineering. The Receiving Party may not reverse engineer, disassemble, or decompile any prototypes,
software, or other tangible objects that embody the Confidential Information and that are provided to the Receiving Party under this
(c) Term. The Receiving Party shall, and shall require each Receiving Party Representative to, maintain the confidentiality and security of the Confidential Information in perpetuity until a separate written agreement has been made to all the receiving party to disclose any such information.
(i) such time as all Confidential Information disclosed under this agreement becomes publicly known and is made generally available through no action or inaction of the Receiving Party or
(ii) the third anniversary of the disclosure. However, to the extent that the Disclosing Party has disclosed information to the Receiving Party that constitutes a trade secret under law, the Receiving Party shall protect that trade secret for as long as the information qualifies as a trade secret.
The obligations and restrictions of this agreement do not apply to that part of the Confidential Information that:
(a) was or becomes publically available other than as a result of a disclosure by the Receiving Party in violation of this agreement;
(b) was or becomes available to the Receiving Party on a nonconfidential basis before its disclosure to the Receiving Party by the
Disclosing Party or a Disclosing Party Representative, but only if:
(i) the source of such information is not bound by a confidentiality agreement with the Disclosing Party or is not otherwise prohibited from transmitting the information to the Receiving Party or a Receiving Party Representative by a contractual, legal, fiduciary, or other obligation; and
(ii) the Receiving Party provides the Disclosing Party with written notice of such prior possession either
(A) before the execution and delivery of this agreement or
(B) if the Receiving Party later becomes aware (through disclosure to the Receiving Party) of any aspect of the Confidential Information as to which the Receiving Party had prior possession, promptly on the Receiving Party so
becoming aware; or
(c) is requested or legally compelled (by oral questions, interrogatories, requests for information or documents, subpoena, civil or
criminal investigative demand, or similar process), or is required by a regulatory body, to be disclosed. However, the Receiving
(i) provide the Disclosing Party with prompt notice of any such request or requirement before disclosure so that the Disclosing Party may seek an appropriate protective order or other appropriate remedy; and
(ii) provide reasonable assistance to the Disclosing Party in obtaining any such protective order.
If a protective order or other remedy is not obtained or the Disclosing Party grants a waiver under this agreement, then the Receiving Party may furnish that portion (and only that portion) of the Confidential Information that, in the written opinion of counsel reasonably acceptable to the Disclosing Party, the Receiving Party is legally compelled or otherwise required to disclose. The
Receiving Party shall make reasonable efforts to obtain reliable assurance that confidential treatment will be accorded any part of the Confidential Information so disclosed; or
(d) was developed by the Receiving Party independently without breach of this agreement.
4. RETURN OF PROPERTY.
If the Disclosing Party requests, the Receiving Party shall, and shall cause each Receiving Party Representative to promptly (and
no later than 1 days after the request):
(a) return all Confidential Information to the Disclosing Party; and
(b) destroy all Derivative Material and within 1 days of this destruction, provide a written certificate to the Disclosing Party
confirming this destruction.
5. NO PUBLICITY.
The parties shall keep the existence of this agreement, and the transactions or discussions contemplated by this agreement, strictly
confidential, except as required by law and except as the parties otherwise may agree in writing before a disclosure.
6. OWNERSHIP RIGHTS.
The Receiving Party acknowledges that the Confidential Information is, and at all times will be, the Disclosing Party's sole property, even if suggestions made by the Receiving Party are incorporated into the Confidential Information. The Receiving Party obtains no rights by license or otherwise in the Confidential Information under this agreement. Neither party solicits any change in the other party's organization, business practice, service, or products, and the disclosure of Confidential Information may not be construed as evidencing any intent by a party to purchase any products or services of the other party or as an encouragement to expend funds in development or research efforts. The Confidential Information may pertain to prospective or unannounced products.
The Receiving Party may not use the Confidential Information as a basis on which to develop or have a third party develop a competing or similar plan or undertaking. Nothing in this agreement obligates either party to proceed with any transaction between them, and each party reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate the discussions contemplated by this agreement concerning the business opportunity, if any, and to cease further disclosures, communications, or other activities under this agreement on written notice to the other party. Any commitment to proceed with a transaction will be set forth in a separate agreement signed by the parties.
ALL CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION IS PROVIDED "AS IS." THE DISCLOSING PARTY MAKES NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS, IMPLIED, OR OTHERWISE, REGARDING THE ACCURACY, COMPLETENESS, OR PERFORMANCE OF ANY SUCH INFORMATION.
(a) Choice of Law. The laws of the state of Pennsylvania govern this agreement (without giving effect to its conflicts of law principles).
(b) Choice of Forum. Both parties consent to the personal jurisdiction of the state and federal courts in PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania.
(c) Equitable Relief. The Receiving Party's breach of this agreement will cause irreparable harm to the Disclosing Party and monetary damages may not be a sufficient remedy for an unauthorized disclosure of the Confidential Information. If the Receiving
Party discloses the Confidential Information in violation of this agreement, the Disclosing Party may, without waiving any other rights or remedies and without posting a bond or other security, seek an injunction, specific performance, or other equitable remedy to prevent competition or further disclosure, and may pursue other legal remedies. No amendment to this agreement will be effective unless it is in writing and signed by a party or its authorized representative.
(a) No Assignment. Neither party may assign any of its rights under this agreement, except with the prior written consent of the other party. All voluntary assignments of rights are limited by this subsection.
(b) No Delegation. Neither party may delegate any performance under this agreement, except with the prior written consent of the other party.
(c) Enforceability of an Assignment or Delegation. If a purported assignment or purported delegation is made in violation of this section, it is void.

(b) Electronic Signatures. This agreement, agreements ancillary to this agreement, and related documents entered into in
connection with this agreement are signed when a party's signature is delivered by facsimile, email, or other electronic medium.
These signatures must be treated in all respects as having the same force and effect as original signatures.
If any provision in this agreement is, for any reason, held to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable in any respect, that invalidity,
illegality, or unenforceability will not affect any other provisions of this agreement, but this agreement will be construed as if the
invalid, illegal, or unenforceable provisions had never been contained in this agreement, unless the deletion of those provisions
would result in such a material change that would cause completion of the transactions contemplated by this agreement to be
