Confidentiality Agreements

A confidentiality agreement (also known as a nondisclosure agreement) is a contract between at least two parties. It outlines confidential material, knowledge, or information the parties to the contract wish to share with one another for certain purposes (such as a merger, selling a business, or selling business assets) but wish to restrict access to or use of the confidential material, knowledge, or information by the other party or by third parties.
