Non-Disclosure Agreement

Our Price:  $15.00(Exc. 20% VAT)

A pack of four general purpose non-disclosure agreements. The pack includes a pair of unilateral (i.e. one way) NDAs and a pair of mutual (i.e. two way) NDAs. Each pair includes one standard-form and one long-form agreement.

Non-disclosure agreements (NDAs) are one of the most common kinds of commercial contract. They are used by businesses in a wide variety of different circumstances, whenever a business wants to protection the confidentiality of information disclosed to another person. For example, NDAs may be used when two companies are negotiating a joint venture, in connection with the sale or acquisition of a company or business, or in relation to the disclosure of an invention, artistic work, software program or business idea.

This pack of templates includes:

  • Non-disclosure agreement (unilateral, standard-form)
  • Non-disclosure agreement (unilateral, long-form)
  • Non-disclosure agreement (mutual, standard-form)
  • Non-disclosure agreement (mutual, long-form)

A unilateral NDA should be used where one person or company is disclosing confidential information to another; whilst a mutual NDA should be used where there are two persons or companies, and each is disclosing confidential information to the other.

The key provisions in these non disclosure agreements are:

  • The definitions of confidential information.
  • Confidentiality obligations: what is a party receiving confidential information permitted to do with it? What exceptions are there to those permissions?
  • Termination: how can the parties exit the NDA, and what are the consequences of doing so?

The NDA templates are between 6 and 9 pages long. The individual documents come in Word (.docx) format, although they are supplied as a compressed (.zip) file. The file will be downloadable from our website immediately following your purchase.

A range of resources relating to non-disclosure agreements and the laws of confidence are available here: non-disclosure resources.

How is confidential information defined in the NDA documents?

A flexible definition is used, that can cover specified categories of information (e.g. "the information contained in document x") as well as more generic classes (e.g. "the information disclosed by the first party to the second party that is marked or described as confidential").

What's the difference between an NDA and a confidentiality agreement?

Nothing, necessarily.

What confidentiality restrictions are included?

The suggested provisions include restrictions relating to the disclosure of the information, an obligation to act in good faith in relation to the information, and an obligation to take measures to secure the information from unauthorized disclosure. Certain exceptions are also suggested, such as disclosure to insurers/advisers and disclosures mandated by law.
