The NON-DISCLOSURE AGREEMENT is suitable for:
Any business owner sharing commercial information, ideas or IP with anyone outside their organisation.
Why you need it:
A startup is worth only as much as the ideas behind it. To keep your ideas safe, you need a legal document to bind potential business partners to secrecy. If you don’t then: in some cases others might steal or adapt your ideas to compete with you or take business from you; competitors might beat you to market; suppliers could start offering goods or services instead of supplying you.
Our NON-DISCLOSURE AGREEMENT (NDA also known as a confidentiality agreement) helps ensure that people who learn about your business don’t disclose it to a third party or use it beyond the agreed purpose.
To protect you and your ideas, you should use an NDA when sharing any business secrets or ideas. This includes when interacting with business partners, marketing firms, investors, suppliers, prospective customers or workers, or manufacturers.
