Non-disclosure agreement (unilateral, premium)
This is a premium one-way NDA (non-disclosure agreement) template, designed to protect the confidential information that one person discloses to another. It may be suitable for use in many different circumstances where confidential information is being disclosed. For example, the premium NDA may be used in relation to the disclosure of an invention, a copyright work or a business idea, proposal or plan.
The fundamental obligation under the NDA is for the recipient to keep the information disclosed secret. In addition, the recipient may be obliged to only use the information in good faith and for specified purposes. The recipient must also keep the information secure.
In some limited situations the recipient may have a right to disclose the information to another person, for instance where it needs to disclose the information to its professional advisers.
This premium NDA includes provisions (absent from the standard non disclosure agreement) containing more detailed non disclosure undertakings obligations and an indemnity benefiting the disclosor. It also includes a publicity clause, a data protection clause, an intellectual property rights clause and a formal notice clause.Ask about this document
