Does the Confidentiality Agreement look suspect to you, and how should it be worded to ensure I get what I've asked in terms of the agreement, as at the minute it looks like it only serves to benefit them.
Especially point 9
Removed personal data
Obviously, this treatment of your property is appalling.
You might want to put something in the agreement with regard to premature failure of the engine being their responsibility if the conclusion is that it has been over revved when cold.
I think the fact that they are asking you to sign a confidentiality agreement, somewhat bizarre. They are obviously concerned that this is going to go further than what they don’t want you to do presumably is have the whole thing in the newspaper or refer it to Kia head office.
You need something outside the confidentiality agreement which confirms the contents of clause 1.1.7 and details what they are going to do and then says that they will do this subject to the confidentiality agreement.
At this stage, you might want to consider stopping communicating in email putting everything in writing on paper.
The other thing that you need to consider is whether you really want this work done at this garage.
Perhaps I’m being paranoid, but I trust that you have a copy of everything that is on the memory card!
Other than the above, there’s nothing wrong with the agreement itself.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Thanks for you response,
Would it be worth me adding in a bit about ensuring that the dashcam is left alone for future visits there?
If so how would I word this to ensure I was protected?
Also what does point 9 actually mean?
It reads to me as sign this agreement, give us the evidence and I get nothing, or am I reading it completely wrong?
Thanks in advance
You can into the agreement whatever you like although if you don’t trust them enough that you want them to leave the dash cam on, it begs the question as to whether you should still be using them!
You can specify that must leave it on but they can then cover it up or reangle it and the doc becomes unwieldy to cater for all that
I don’t know what point 9 is now because it has been removed. Can you please let me know what the paragraph says?
