A non-disclosure agreement (NDA), also known as a confidentiality agreement (CA), confidential disclosure agreement (CDA), proprietary information agreement (PIA), or secrecy agreement (SA), is a legal contract between at least two parties
that outlines confidential material, knowledge, or information that the
parties wish to share with one another for certain purposes, but wish
to restrict access to or by third parties. It is a contract through
which the parties agree not to disclose information covered by the
agreement. An NDA creates a confidential relationship between the
parties to protect any type of confidential and proprietary information
or trade secrets. As such, an NDA protects non-public business information.
NDAs are commonly signed when two companies, individuals, or other
entities (such as partnerships, societies, etc.) are considering doing
business and need to understand the processes used in each other's
business for the purpose of evaluating the potential business
relationship. NDAs can be "mutual", meaning both parties are restricted
in their use of the materials provided, or they can restrict the use of
material by a single party.
