I need to know what this means. 1) Is it mean that if you do few hours research about career, so do we have to disclose to the company? 2) Can we use this research for personal use until we disclose. 3) If we do online courses, there we do have to do projects, do we have to disclose that projects too? 4) Can we use commercially after we leave the company, if disclosing is not mandatory? 5) any other suggestions. I will appreciate if experts give advice according to Indian Laws.
