Confidentiality agreements are absolutely essential to most businesses. The ones we provide both serve as a reminder to an employee or consultant to respect the privacy of the organisation, and as a legally binding supplementary contract against which action can be brought. Our confidentiality agreements are suitable when you want to protect data, processes and ideas.
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 a plans, ideas or a prototype.
This confidentiality agreement (non-disclosure agreement or NDA) should be used by a creator of a piece of work (whether a work of art, a book, film, idea, software code or other intellectual property) to prevent another party from using ideas within the work without the creator's permission. It will allow the creator to explore development, manufacture, use or sale of the piece of work together with the other party.
This confidentiality agreement (non-disclosure agreement or NDA) is for use where a supplier may find out sensitive information in the course of providing the goods or services. Learning 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.
This mutual confidentiality agreement (sometimes called a non-disclosure agreement or NDA) enables parties to explore the possibilities for a deal before signing an agreement that covers the terms. Being a mutual agreement, both sides agree to the same terms of disclosure, but not necessarily the disclosure of the same information. 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: sub-contract manufacture; business acquisition; joint product development.
