I undertake to keep secret and confidential, and will not disclose to any third party (whether orally, in writing or by any other means whatsoever) or keep for personal, commercial, or other purposes whatsoever Confidential Information of any sort without the prior written consent of Rabata.
I acknowledge and agree that a breach or threatened breach of any of my undertakings herein may cause irreparable damage to Rabata, and to its reputation and that a remedy at law for any such breach or threatened breach may not be adequate or sufficient. I accordingly agree that Rabata shall be entitled to seek any appropriate injunction, specific performance or other equitable remedy for any threatened or actual breach of these undertakings in any applicable jurisdiction.

I also hereby assign to Rabata and/or waive any and all claim that I may now or hereafter have in any jurisdiction to so-called “moral rights” or rights of “droit morale” in connection with the work. I agree to execute any documents as Rabata may reasonably request in confirmation of the foregoing.
My obligations under this Agreement shall survive the termination of my relationship with Rabata irrespective of the reasons for the termination and shall not in any way be modified, altered, or otherwise affected by the termination.
