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 one-way agreement, which is appropriate if you are sharing information, but the other side is not sharing any of its sensitive information with you. A mutual NDA is more appropriate if both are sharing sensitive information with each other. You can generate a mutual 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.
