What is a Non-Disclosure Agreement?

A Non-Disclosure Agreement (also known as an NDA or Confidentiality Agreement) is a commercial agreement between two parties to protect confidential information and not disclose it to a third party.

Non-Disclosure Agreements are very common when:

🔹 hiring employees/contractors

🔹 negotiating business contracts with other businesses

🔹 pitching to potential investors

🔹 sharing commercially sensitive information with suppliers/partners

You should always get the agreement signed by both parties before you reveal any confidential information to make sure it’s effective.

 

Do I need a contract?

You bet!

If you want to protect your ideas, trade secrets or sensitive information from being copied or stolen, a Non-Disclosure Agreement is essential.

Even if you’re just in early discussions with another party, you should get a Non-Disclosure Agreement signed to be safe.

NDAs generally enable parties to reveal information with commercial value that they might otherwise keep secret, so that commercial negotiations can continue openly and honestly.

 

Are there any other names for a Non-Disclosure Agreement?

Yes, you might have also heard this contract referred to as an NDA, Confidentiality Agreement, Secrecy Agreement or Proprietary Information Agreement.

All of them are basically the same thing, just different names for a contract you use to protect confidential information.

What’s the difference between a unilateral and a mutual agreement?

There are two types of Non-Disclosure agreements – one way and mutual.

In a one way (“unilateral”) agreement, one party discloses information to another party and that party agrees not to disclose the information.

In a mutual (“bilateral” or “reciprocal”) agreement, both parties agree not to share the other’s sensitive information.

 

What is confidential information?

Confidential information can be almost anything. It can include a business idea, concept, plan, strategy, design, process, financial information, customer information or a trade secret.

It can take the form of documents, graphics, text, data, files, designs, drawings, technical specifications, systems, processes…and the list goes on. You get the idea!

 

Is an agreement still legal if it hasn’t been signed?

It’s possible for a verbal agreement to be legally binding, but it’s extremely difficult (if not impossible) to prove, so it’s important to make sure that both parties sign the Non-Disclosure Agreement before you disclose any confidential information.

Who is this for?

★ Any individual or business with confidential information

★ Any individual or business who wants to keep information secret/private

★ A business hiring an employee or contractor

★ A business negotiating a contract with another business

★ A business pitching for investors

★ A business sharing commercially sensitive information with suppliers or partners.
