This clause applies in Italian law when it is interpreted as innovative in relation to previous agreements concluded in this way. 5.1 Confidentiality Agreement or non-disclosure agreement A first letter that the parties exchange is called Confidentiality Agreement or non-disclosure agreement. It is an agreement for the confidentiality or non-proliferation of data acquired in the course of negotiations. This letter is justified by the purpose of the Treaty; Its raison d`être lies in the fact that the potential buyer could, across and during the line, draw attention to data relevant to the activities of the target audience, data and information that he could use for himself without buying the target. A company that carries out an entrepreneurial activity has important and non-material assets (often as know-how, human and intellectual capital, intangible resources or assets, etc.) that are not or are not kept secret, they lose much or even all of their value. It is therefore all the more necessary to sign a confidentiality or non-disclosure agreement, the more the objective is a company in which know-how and intangible assets are important. The potential buyer to start a negotiation on the assignment of the objective has the mission to sign a confidentiality or non-disclosure agreement: if he does not consent, he can not act. The purpose of this agreement is twofold: on the one hand, it provides that the buyer (or even the seller) cannot broadcast the messages he acquires during the negotiations; On the other hand, it provides that these messages will not be used themselves in the event of failure of the negotiations. Finally, it is certain that the confidentiality or non-disclosure agreement is an agreement between the parties aimed at establishing a patrimonial relationship: that is, a contract under Article 1321 Civ. separately, but included in the purchase and sale agreement.
