Confidentiality and Confidential Information

For the purpose of this Agreement, “Confidential Information” shall be deemed to include all information and materials that: (a) if in written format is marked as confidential, or (b) if disclosed verbally is noted as confidential at time of disclosure, or (c) in the absence of either (a) or (b) is information which a reasonable party would deem to be non-public information and confidential.

Confidential Information shall include without limitation: this Agreement; all information provided on and/or through the Website and/or our Services; trade secrets, inventions, research methods, methods of compiling information, methods of creating our database, procedures, devices, machines, equipment, data processing programs, software, computer models, research projects, and other means used by us in the conduct of our business; product formulations, strategies and plans for future business, new business, product or other development, new and innovative product ideas, potential acquisitions or divestitures, and new marketing ideas; information with respect to costs, commissions, fees, profits, sales, markets, sales methods and financial information; mailing lists, the identity of our customers, potential customers, distributors, and suppliers and their names and addresses, the names of customer representatives responsible for entering into contracts for our products or services, the amounts paid by customers to us, specific customer needs and requirements, and leads and referrals to prospective customers; and the structure, sequence, and organization of our database, together with source code and object code; and the identity of our employees, their respective salaries, bonuses, benefits, qualifications and abilities.

You acknowledge and agree that the nature of our confidential, proprietary, and trade secret information to which you may ever have, and will continue to have access to, derives value from the fact that it is not generally known and used by others in the highly competitive, international industry in which We compete. You further acknowledge and agree that, even in complete good faith, it would be impossible for you to work in a similar capacity for a competitor of ours without drawing upon and utilizing information gained pursuant to this Agreement.

You acknowledge that you are receiving such Confidential Information in confidence and will not publish, copy, or disclose any Confidential Information without prior written consent from the Company. You further agree that you shall not attempt to reverse engineer, de-compile or try to ascertain the source code to our software or any other software supplied hereunder.

You agree not to alone or in association with others use Confidential and/or trade secret information to (a) solicit, or facilitate any organization with which you are associated in soliciting, any employee or customer of ours to alter its relationship with us; (b) solicit for employment, hire, or engage as an independent contractor, or facilitate any organization with which We are associated in soliciting for employment, hire, or engagement as an independent contractor, any person who was employed by us at any time during the term of this Agreement (provided, that this clause (b) shall not apply to any individual whose employment with us was terminated for a period of one year or longer); or (c) solicit business from or perform services for any customer, supplier, licensee, or business relation of ours, induce or attempt to induce, any such entity to cease doing business with us; or in any way interfere with the relationship between any such entity and us.

You agree that you will not make any derogatory statements, either oral or written, or otherwise disparage us, our products, employees, services, work and/or employment, and will take all reasonable steps to prevent others from making derogatory or disparaging statements. You agree that it would be impossible, impractical, or extremely difficult to fix the actual damages suffered by reason of a breach of this paragraph, and accordingly hereby agree that ten thousand Dollars ($10,000) shall be presumed to be the amount of damages sustained by reason of each such breach, without prejudice to our right to also seek injunctive or other equitable relief.

Other than as expressly provided for herein, in no event shall you be deemed by virtue hereof to have acquired any right or interest by license or otherwise, in or to the Confidential Information.

You and We agree that all originals and any copies of the Confidential Information remain the property of Simply Culture Boutique Travel.

About cookies

A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.

Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.

Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.

Cookies can be used by web servers to identify and track users as they navigate different pages on a website and identify users returning to a website.
