In the event where your project requires discretion, we have the Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) template for you.

This enables you to keep your project details confidential by requiring DigiPreneurs to download and sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement, which is printable and can be used as a contract.

Agreement:

This non-disclosure agreement (“Agreement”), dated as of the submission time in the electronic form below is made between the user of the www.maru.africa site who is the provider of the professional services (“DigiPreneur”) and the user of such professional services (“Client”).

For the purposes of enabling the DigiPreneur to provide the professional services to the Client, the Client has agreed to provide the DigiPreneur with written and oral information (“Confidential Information”) concerning the project which the DigiPreneur is to complete (“Project”) subject to the terms of this Agreement.

The parties agree as follows:

1. The Confidential Information shall be kept in strict confidence by the DigiPreneur and shall not be used, without the Client’s prior written consent, for any purpose other than in connection with the completion of the Project. The Confidential Information shall not be disclosed to any persons other than those Representatives (as defined below) who have a need to know. “Representatives” shall mean the affiliates, directors, officers, employees, professional advisers and agents of the DigiPreneur. The DigiPreneur shall inform its Representatives of the confidential nature of the Confidential Information and shall direct its Representatives to hold the Confidential Information in strict confidence.

2. The restrictions in paragraph 1 shall not apply to any information which: (a) is or becomes generally available to the public through no violation of this Agreement; (b) was available to the DigiPreneur on a non-confidential basis prior to its disclosure to the DigiPreneur by the Client; (c) becomes available to the DigiPreneur on a non-confidential basis from a source other than the Client provided that such source is not bound by an Agreement with the Client; or (iv) is required to be disclosed to any court, regulatory authority, other governmental authority or pursuant to any requirement of law.

3. At the request of the Client, the DigiPreneur shall return all Confidential Information received from the Client and shall not retain any copies of, or other reproductions or extracts of, the Confidential Information, except as it may retain in accordance with prudent business practices (any retained material shall remain subject to the provisions of this Agreement without any time limit).

4. The DigiPreneur acknowledges and agrees that the Client is not making any representation or warranty, express or implied, as to the accuracy, correctness or completeness of the Confidential Information. The DigiPreneur agrees that neither the Client nor any of its affiliates, directors, officers, employees, professional advisors or agents shall have liability to the DigiPreneur resulting from the use of the Confidential Information by the DigiPreneur or the Representatives.

5. Notwithstanding any other remedies which may be available to the Client, the DigiPreneur indemnifies and must keep the Client indemnified against any loss or expense suffered or incurred by the Client directly or indirectly in connection with or arising out of or as a result of the breach by the DigiPreneur or its Representatives of any of the terms of this Agreement.

6. This Agreement is governed by and shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the Republic of South Africa and the parties irrevocably submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the Republic. The duration of this Agreement is 12 (twelve) months from the date of this Agreement.
