Q: what contract is required to be implemented to assure that your customers don't reach out to your seller and vice versa?
A: You may be referring to a Non-Compete or a Non-circumvention agreement.
A: In California, and generally anywhere else, a "Non-Circumvention Agreement" or "Non-Solicitation Agreement" could be implemented to prevent customers from directly engaging with your seller and vice versa. This type of contract aims to protect your business relationships and prevent parties from bypassing you to work directly with each other.
A: Non-compete (and related family of agreements), provided they are reasonable in scope, geography, duration, etc. Good luck
To prevent direct interactions between customers and sellers, you would typically implement a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) or a Confidentiality Agreement. This agreement would outline the terms under which information and relationships are to be kept confidential, preventing customers from reaching out to sellers and vice versa. However, specific contract language and conditions should be carefully drafted to ensure enforceability under California law.
