    And/or

    "The signatory employee undertakes to maintain secrecy about all the confidential information, documents, data, and trade and industrial secrets, no matter their nature and/or origin, that comes to his knowledge in the scope of his work for the company."

    "Or" sounds better to me, but I'd like to know what you think. Are both correct?

    Thanks!

    I'd settle for and/or.

    Re: And/or

    I do not see anything wrong with both, but one in parenthesis.

    "The signatory employee undertakes to maintain secrecy about all the confidential information, documents, data, and trade and industrial secrets, no matter their nature and (or) origin, that comes to his knowledge in the scope of his work for the company."

    Re: And/or

    I have one more question.

    Is it correct to write "the signatory employee" instead of simply "the signatory"? I'm translating a document in German in which "der/die unterzeichnende Mitarbeitende" (the signatory employee) is used, but I've never seen such a construction in English and am wodnering if it's correct.

    Thanks!

    Re: And/or

    I am not very sure, given the "secrecy and (or) confidentiality". I guess it could be a company or an employee, and, therefore is worth to be specific about it, right?
    Or, maybe you should try to ask people in "the legal terminology department" if you consider it to be a legal matter.
