    1. 3.1 “IDEA” commits to:

      • keeping the received Confidential Information safe and registered without making any copy or duplicate of any document containing Confidential Information.
    2. 3.2 The above-mentioned obligation will not be applied in the following instances:

      In absence of the display of interest, as if in absence of an agreement between IDEA and INVENTOR on the Project development (after the Display of interest), each party will be released from any commitment toward the other party, except for the obligation stated at point 3.
    2. 4.2 In order to allow IDEA to evaluate the project and not to jeopardise its eventual joint development, INVENTOR is committed not to submit the Project to any third party, or patent it, or to make public the project, limited to the period where IDEA has the right to examine it as indicated at point 4.1
      After this term has expired, without the Display of interest, this exclusive obligation is considered ceased.
