Our non-disclosure agreements supplement any confidentiality clauses in employment and other contracts, providing a higher than normal level of protection of business knowledge. They are particularly useful where contractors or consultants will have access to sensitive data such as customer, business process or employee information. These agreements are easy to adapt and can be put in place quickly.
Non disclosure agreements
This confidentiality agreement (non-disclosure agreement or NDA) enables a business or individual to explore the possibilities for a deal before signing an agreement that covers the terms. This confidentiality agreement is a good way of protecting your secrets from being used by the other side if the deal doesn't go ahead. Examples of use might be: a proposed franchise; a business acquisition; the appointment of an agent or distributor; demonstration of plans, ideas or a prototype.
This confidentiality agreement (non-disclosure agreement or NDA) is for use where a supplier may find out sensitive information in the course of providing goods or services. The information may be necessary for the task, or you may just be concerned that private information might be disclosed inadvertently. Using this agreement is also an excellent way to remind suppliers of their responsibilities to maintain client confidentiality.
