Confidentiality Agreement

Confidentiality Agreement

Use a confidentiality agreement, also called a non-disclosure agreement or NDA, to prohibit an individual or business from disclosing confidential information or trade secrets to others. This agreement empowers the parties that sign it to freely discuss their ideas so that they may build successful business relationships without fear of losing their business opportunities.
When should I use a confidentiality agreement?
  • Checkmark When sharing sensitive business information with another company.
  • Checkmark When employees have access to sensitive proprietary information.
  • Checkmark When pitching to possible investors or partners.
