A Non-Disclosure Agreement, also called a Confidentiality Agreement, is a legal contract between two or more parties by which the parties agree not to disclose information (which is intended to be kept secret) that they have shared with each other during a business relationship.
This Agreement may either be one-way (unilateral) or two-way (mutual), depending on whether both parties will be providing the secret information. If only one party will be providing the secret information to the other, it is called a Unilateral Non-Disclosure Agreement. For example, where an inventor of an idea is sharing the idea with another person, the inventor is the disclosing party and the other party is the receiving party. If the two parties will share the secret information between theselves, it is called a Mutual Non-Disclosure Agreement.
This Agreement outlines confidential information or materials the parties wish to share with one another but restricts its use and access by third parties.
This Agreement can be used to share intellectual property, share commercial trading information or formalize a business relationship, for example, between an employer and an employee.
