Amazon Mutual Non Disclosure Agreement

“confidential information,” any non-public information relating to Amazon`s operations or activity, whether disclosed to Amazon`s supplier or third parties, and that is classified as confidential or that should reasonably be considered confidential due to the nature of the information or the circumstances associated with its disclosure. Confidential information includes without restriction: the supplier acknowledges that the disclosure or use of confidential information, in violation of these conditions, could result in irreparable damage to Amazon, for which financial damage may be difficult to determine or insufficient. The supplier therefore accepts that Amazon, in addition to its other rights and remedies, has the right to obtain rights and remedies in the event of a violation of these conditions. The supplier will ensure that its staff comply with these conditions and confidentiality agreements. (ii) have written confidentiality agreements that require them to protect confidential information. My interviews on the disc were polished, helpful and always carefully on the message in a way that was understandable, but not always useful to Amazon`s cause. When a source says it rains when the air is dry, it does not put the company in the most favorable light. Apart from the recordings, the employees refused to reply to my emails, even though I was writing to their personal addresses. (I suppose anything sent to, such as .B., “,” will be read in a higher year.) This was not true everywhere, and I was grateful to the Amazons, old and present, who were willing to talk to me without permission. But they were rare and courageous exceptions, and the extreme reluctance of the majority was undoubtedly a precise reading of his employer`s attitude to unauthorized revelations. The use of Amazon gave me a new respect for Brad Stone, whose “Everything Store” made serious cuts in this fortress. All confidential information remains the exclusive property of Amazon.

The disclosure of confidential information by Amazon under these conditions does not constitute an explicit or implied concession of rights to Amazon`s patents, copyrights, trade secrets, trademarks or other intellectual property rights to the supplier. The supplier may only use confidential information for the purposes of the commercial relationship between the supplier and Amazon. Unless expressly stipulated under these conditions, the supplier will not disclose confidential information to anyone without Amazon`s prior written consent. The provider will take all reasonable steps to prevent the unauthorized disclosure, dissemination or use of confidential information, including at least the steps it takes to protect its own confidential information of a similar nature. The supplier will separate confidential information from confidential third-party documents to prevent a municipality. The supplier understands that confidential information may constitute essential non-public information under U.S. securities law and regulations and may not act in Amazon securities on the basis of confidential information. To some extent, secrecy prevails in all American companies and in large institutions in general.

No one in these places wants to be caught saying the wrong thing. A giraffe (famously defined by Michael Kinsley as a testimony of involuntary truth) is more likely to be fired than dishonesty, deception or a series of other ethical violations. And this situation is only getting worse, as any journalist who has had to negotiate basic rules with phrases like “in the background with permission to quote” knows only too well. It was a great relief to read Will Blythe`s Times Op-Ed about the refusal to sign a termination contract after being fired by the digital publishing house Byliner because it would have banned him from saying something pejorative about the company.
