Note that this document is intended only for US companies.

An effective non-disclosure agreement, or NDA, can help protect your company’s intellectual property from being disclosed to a third party.

The NDA you can generate with the link above is a mutual agreement, meaning that both parties agree to keep the other party’s information confidential.  Use this when both parties are sharing sensitive information.  A one-way NDA is more appropriate if you are sharing information, but the other side is not sharing any of its sensitive information with you. You can generate a one-way NDA here.

Please note that this NDA is intended for use by technology companies. If you need an NDA intended for use by life sciences companies, please contact your attorney.
