I have received an NDA so that I can become part of a software project as a developer. Most of the clauses seems reasonable except for two parts that I'm slightly worried about. Could you give an example of something that would breach each clause? I have no idea what these clauses mean, practically speaking.
The Recipient, its affiliates, subsidiaries and representatives will not, from the date of this agreement until day of, December 31, 2025, directly or indirectly solicit for employment or employ any person who is now employed or retained by the Information Provider or any affiliate of the Information Provider without the prior written consent of the Information Provider.
2025 seems like a long time, is this a standard practice in these kinds of agreements? It seems that a lot of the clauses of a similar nature are expressed in months, not years (nearly 10 in this case).
Other than with the express written consent of the Information Provider, which consent may not be unreasonably withheld, the Recipient will not, from the date of this Agreement until day of ____ be directly or indirectly involved with a business which is in direct competition with the business lines of the Information Provider that are the subject of this Agreement.
From the date of this Agreement until day of ____ the Recipient will not divert or attempt to divert from the Information Provider any business the Information Provider had enjoyed, solicited, or attempted to solicit, from their customers, at the time the parties entered into this Agreement.
It worries me to be signing a contract which doesn't have dates explicitly outlined. Is this a valid concern in this case? If it is, how should I respond in terms of possible modifications?
