Are there different types of non-disclosure agreements? 

There are several different types of non-disclosure agreements. 

  • In cases where one party discloses information to another party, a unilateral agreement is made. In these agreements, the receiving party must guarantee that they will protect all knowledge and information they are privileged to in there business operations. Unilateral agreements commonly are used when a businesses owner prepares to sell his business, and must disclose financial records to potential buyers.

These agreements require all parties involved protecting the knowledge and information entrusted with them per the agreement. Mutual agreements are commonly made when businesses enter into some sort of joint venture. 

What type of information can non-disclosure agreements cover? 

Non-disclosure agreements are generally simple, straight-forward documents, several pages in length. 

Non-disclosure agreements can cover any information, knowledge, or materials that are not publically or typically known. Generally, NDA’s cover only information that is directly divulged from the involved parties, and do not prevent the sharing of information that was discovered from some outside means- even if that information would have otherwise been covered by the agreement. For example, if Business A and Business B enter into a mutual non-disclosure agreement and Business A discovers information about a particular product from Business C, than information is no longer considered confidential' regardless of it’s relation to Business B or the original agreement. 

What information is required in a non-disclosure agreement?
