Non-Disclosure Agreements

This document is intended to be used by a party which is considering sharing confidential information with another party.

The below is not a comprehensive list of questions/considerations: it is intended to alert the user to certain matters which it should consider before entering into a non-disclosure agreement (“NDA”). It does not replace the need to take legal advice before entering into an NDA: there is no such thing as a “standard” NDA which will suit every purpose. Failure to take advice on a particular NDA can result in the recipient having permission to use your confidential information for unanticipated purposes or having claims to that information and can even result in you being prevented from using or disclosing your own information.
