When two or more parties get together to create value, they usually sign a contract. This agreement defines the terms and conditions of their association. In some circumstances, an additional form of agreement is required to prevent one or more parties from disclosing information about the partnership. This contract is referred to as the Non-Disclosure Agreement. A confidentiality agreement is another name for this type of contract.


A Non-Disclosure or an NDA – as it is commonly known – is used in many situations. Primarily, it is signed by two or more parties to safeguard the secrets and business processes of a business from being disclosed by an employee or freelancer to rival companies. As a result, the terms within a Non-Disclosure Agreement prevent the release of specific information about a business.

Typically, many organizations require their new employees to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement that prevents them from disclosing information about a business. The agreement may also extend to several years after the worker stops working with the business. If a worker violates the terms and conditions of this agreement, they can be liable for prosecution, which can lead to severe penalties such as payment of damages.

Features of a Non-Disclosure Agreement

A valid Non-Disclosure Agreement usually contains several features. These features are a combination of unique considerations, fields, terms, and conditions of the contracts. Some of the unique considerations are specified below.

  • A disclosure section might be included in the agreement. This section is included within the Non-Disclosure Agreement to allow for disclosure of information to third parties when necessary.
  • A non-mutual contract instead of a Non-Disclosure Agreement can be developed. This special type of nondisclosure agreement prevents a worker from disclosing only sensitive information about an organization. This is typically used by security outfits.

The fields, terms, and conditions of a Non-Disclosure Agreement are highlighted below.

  • The names of all the parties involved in the Non-Disclosure Agreement.
  • A clause that defines the nature of confidentiality of the agreement.
  • The duration of validity of the agreement.
  • The date of signing the agreement.
