1.2 «confidential information,» information that is by nature confidential;b. is written down to be classified as confidential by the licensee;c. the licensee knows whether it is confidential or whether it should reasonably know; Information contained in or related to the licensee`s intellectual property rights. The know-how agreement can transfer the «knowledge» mentioned above to another person or company that will use it. The advantage of a know-how agreement lies in the fact that the party receiving this «set» of knowledge has a market gap with its competitors when it has access to information giving it a competitive advantage.

It is worth stressing that the purpose of the know-how agreement should not be confused with patentable objects or processes as such, which may be the subject of an agreement of a different nature, for example.
B a patent licensing agreement. 18.1 This agreement contains the entire agreement between the parties and replaces all prior written or written agreements, commitments or agreements. In addition, this agreement can only be amended, amended or amended by a written agreement signed by both parties. As can be seen, the know-how contract is intended to protect secret, technical and scientific knowledge or other types of data and contains confidentiality clauses to protect the potential secrecy of the knowledge transmitted, since it is not only punishable by a fine against the party who does not meet its conditions and does not comply with the terms of the contract. but also the termination of the contract.
