NDA

A Non-Disclosure Agreement is a legal document, which may optionally come in addition to the technical protection of data that we propose by default.

A NDA with Cloem is not necessary, since Cloem S.A.S.U. uses technical measures of protection for your data (e.g. access rights to display contents, encryption of search queries, etc). As ruled by our Terms of Service, we do not disclose the data submitted by you without your prior and explicit consent.

We are currently examining the possibility of handling additional legal Non-Disclosure Agreements, but at the moment we do not offer to sign such legal documents. As a company focusing on R&D, we do not have the ressources in staff and in time required to handle them.

The table below shows examples of situations which you may encounter.

If you do not agree with this current and temporary policy (e.g. situations B and C), you shall NOT do business with us. In particular, by configuring a plan, you accept the following: you will transmit your patent claims to us. We will not publish these patent claims without your instruction (we will apply standard - i.e. reasonable - technical measures of protection to your data). If you disagree, you shall not continue to configure your plan.

 

 

Cloems
associated with base claims are PUBLISHED

Cloems
associated with base claims are CONFIDENTIAL

Base claims PUBLISHED

(A) NDA is not required

(B) NDA is optional but is currently not accepted by Cloem S.A.S.U.

Base claims CONFIDENTIAL

(C) NDA is not possible

 

(D) NDA is optional but is currently not accepted by Cloem S.A.S.U.

 

As an example, consider that the base claim recites "an input device with a screen" and that cloems comprise "an input device with a display", "a mouse with a screen", "a mouse with a releasable screen", "a screen with a releasable mouse"

- In situation (A), as the base claim is published as well as the associated cloems, a NDA does not make sense.

- In situation (B), the base claim is published (e.g. "an input device with a screen") but the cloems aren't (e.g "a screen with a releasable mouse" is not published). In theory, a NDA would be possible to further protect cloems. In practice, Cloem S.A.S.U. does not accept to sign a NDA.

- In situation (C), the base claim is not published (e.g. "an input device with a screen") but cloems are published (in particular very close variants such as "an input device with a display"). A NDA is not possible.

- In situation (D), the base claim is not published (e.g. "an input device with a screen") as well as the associated cloems (e.g "a screen with a releasable mouse" is not published). In theory, a NDA would be possible to further protect the base claim and/or cloems. In practice, Cloem S.A.S.U. does not accept to sign a NDA.
