The main purpose of the confidentiality agreement is to protect sensitive information. This is a legally binding contract between the two parties. Akutate Internet Services v Star India Pvt. Ltd. (2013 SCC OnLine Del 3344) was also referred to. In this case, the applicant argued that the applicant parties had reached an agreement with the applicants on the applicants` knowledge of the “De Simone” wording and, knowing the applicants` know-how, the defendants could not engage in the manufacture and marketing of the product as “De Simone Formulation”.

It was therefore found that these conditions had been found to be non-applicable under section 27 of the Contracts Act.
Violation of confidentiality occurs when someone intentionally or unintentionally discloses information provided to them confidentially. If you agree to keep something private, you will be responsible for his injury, even if there were no Mens rea.
