Binding Effect.  This Agreement shall be binding upon the parties hereto and shall not be amended except by further writing signed by both parties.


Non-Disclosure.  To accomplish the intent of this Agreement, the Employer may disclose to the Consultant in confidence certain information including, but not limited to, lesson plans and final and preliminary copies of the work product produced as a result of this Agreement (the “Information”).

By executing this agreement, Consultant agrees to hold for five years in confidence all information received from Employer, directly or indirectly, and to use such Information only for the purpose of performing pursuant to this Agreement. The obligations of this agreement shall not apply to information (i) in a party's possession prior to disclosure under this agreement, (ii) which is or becomes publicly known through no fault on the part of the Consultant, (iii) received from a third party not under an obligation to the owner of such information not to disclose it, (iv) independently developed by a party without the benefit of the Information disclosed under this agreement (as to which the Consultant has the burden of proof); or (v) required to be disclosed by government regulation, statute, or judicial order, provided that prior to such disclosure and if reasonably possible, the Consultant will inform the Employer of such requirements and permit the Employer to seek a protective order or other relief regarding such information.

Any materials supplied under this agreement remain the sole property of the Employer and the Consultant has a license to use such materials only for the purposes permitted by this Agreement. All such software and materials may not be copied, shall be kept in confidence by the Consultant and shall be returned to the Employer upon demand.

Consultant acquires no rights in or licenses to use the Information received under this agreement. Neither party has an obligation under this agreement to undertake any commercial activity using or incorporating the Information. Unless stated otherwise in writing by the Employer, all disclosures regarding processes, procedures and algorithms used in the production of Company owned products and/or projects shall be treated as confidential Information. Other matters shall be deemed as Information only if identified as confidential at the time of disclosure. Employer warrants to the Consultant that it has the authority to disclose such information. Consultant will protect the confidential Information received under this agreement in the same manner and to the same extent to which Consultant protects his own valuable proprietary information, but in no event does this statement lessen the requirements for protection of the disclosed confidential Information imposed by any other provision of this Agreement. These non-disclosure requirements will remain in full force and effect in the event of a termination of this Agreement for a period of five years from the date of Termination.


Prior Agreements.  This Agreement supersedes all prior agreements between the parties and also any agreement between Terra Media, Ltd. and Consultant.
