Confidentiality Agreement – Non Disclosure

Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure Agreements are designed to protect information that is of value to you and to safeguard such information from being exploited, commercially or otherwise. These Agreements can be used in many situations where information is being disclosed that is of a sensitive nature.

Suppose you have just come up with the single greatest idea since sliced bread. You get that flash of inspiration you know will turn your life on its ear and revolutionise the world!

Congratulations! But now what?

When should I use a Confidentiality Agreement?

The parties need to know that the information discussed is confidential, and that by revealing or using it, they will violate the contract and be open to whatever penalties are applicable.

    Of course. But making a verbal agreement and actually enforcing it are two different stories, they are all too often little more than paper tigers. A written agreement is the best way to protect yourself and your business.
