Need to protect confidential information?
A Confidentiality Agreement (also known as an NDA or Non-Disclosure Agreement) is a commercial agreement between two parties to protect confidential information and not disclose it to a third party.
If you want to protect your ideas, trade secrets or sensitive information from being copied or stolen, a Confidentiality Agreement is essential. You should always get the agreement signed by both parties before you reveal any confidential information to make sure it’s effective.
