The payment of such penalty will be in addition to and not instead of all other rights that the Company may have whether in terms of this agreement, any other agreement, or in law, including but not limited to the Company’s right to obtain an interdict.
6.1. Notwithstanding the provisions hereof, the restraint referred to herein will not apply to Restrainee’s bona fide investments of: shares in any company listed on a recognised stock exchange, in which Restrainee beneficially owns not more than 5% (five percent) of the share capital; and units in mutual funds.

( “parties” meaning the intern and Johnathan Andrews (Pty) Ltd)
(“receiver” meaning the intern and the discloser/discloser’s meaning Johnathan Andrews (Pty) Ltd)

Confidential information further includes but is not limited to all information and other material marked "confidential", and any information and other material that is not readily available to the Discloser’s competitors.
The Receiver hereby undertakes, agrees not to, and is restrained from disclosing Discloser’s confidential information to any other party or entity and agrees to use its best efforts to prevent inadvertent disclosure of confidential information and to treat such information with at least the degree of care that it treats similar material and information of its own.
The Receiver agrees not to use confidential information for its own or another’s benefit or for any other purpose except to evaluate whether it desires to become engaged with Discloser in business, or after becoming engaged, to carry out any such business with Discloser. The Receiver agrees not to disclose the Discloser’s confidential ideas or information to any other person or to any of its employees, except employees or other persons for purpose of evaluating the business possibility or carrying out the business in which the parties are engaged. Any such employees or other persons to whom confidential information is disclosed will be required to have signed a similar confidentiality undertaking.
- TERMINATION OF OBLIGATIONS
The obligations of 3 and 4 above will terminate with respect to any particular portion of the confidential information:
5.1. when the Receiver can document that the confidential information was in the public domain at the time of the Receiver’s receipt of such confidential information;
5.2. upon the prior written consent of Discloser; or
5.3. when required by court order or otherwise in law.
- UNDERTAKING AND RESTRAINT
Notwithstanding clause 5 above, and without derogating from the provisions thereof, the Receiver nevertheless undertakes not to, and is hereby restrained from using the Confidential Information for its benefit or for the benefit of any third party.
- PROPERTY RIGHTS
All confidential information furnished by Discloser to the Receiver will remain the property of Discloser and nothing contained herein may be construed as giving the Receiver licence or rights with respect to any such confidential information. The Receiver will not make copies of any confidential information without prior written consent of Discloser and the Receiver will return to Discloser promptly at its request or upon termination of the business relationship between the Parties all confidential information along with copies made thereof and all documents or things containing any portion of any confidential information.
- RETROSPECTIVE APPLICATION
The terms of this agreement will apply as regards any confidential information disclosed by Discloser to the Receiver before the date of signing of this agreement.
The Receiver acknowledges that compliance with the provisions of the agreement is necessary to protect the intellectual property and proprietary interests of Discloser. Any use of the confidential information or disclosure by the Receiver to any third party in contravention hereof, or any other breach of this agreement, will result in irreparable and continuing damage to Discloser. In the event of such breach, Discloser will be authorised and entitled to obtain immediate injunctive relief and any other rights or remedies to which Discloser may be entitled, including a claim for damages, without limitation and including special damages and loss of earnings. In addition, in the event that a court of competent jurisdiction decides that the Receiver has materially breached this agreement, the Receiver will be obliged to reimburse Discloser according to attorney and own client costs.
Failure to enforce any provision of this agreement will not constitute as waiver of any term hereof. This agreement is binding upon the Parties and their successors and assigns, provided that the right to confidential information may not be ceded without the written consent of Discloser. Any amendments hereto must be in writing and signed by both parties.
