Template overview

You can use a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) when you or the other party (or both) are disclosing confidential information which you or they would like to remain confidential. Depending on the version you choose, one or both parties will be prohibited from using or disclosing the other party’s confidential information.

These NDAs are “formal” in that they are longer than the “simple” version (3 pages) and includes more of the “formal” legalities such as what remedies are available to the parties and which state’s law governs the agreement. If you want a simpler NDA, consider one of our Simple NDAs.
