Confidentiality Agreement


Overview
- The Confidentiality Agreement is used when one party with confidential or proprietary information will be disclosing that information to someone else.  
- Use this agreement when only one party is disclosing confidential information.  If both parties are disclosing confidential information (an exchange), use the Reciprocal Non-Disclosure Agreement instead.
- The type of information covered is broad, so that virtually any confidential information disclosed is protected by the agreement.  The Owner should, nonetheless, make sure that the definition of confidential information in Section 1 covers all of the information that may be disclosed.
