A non-disclosure agreement (NDA) is a legal contract that outlines confidential materials, information and knowledge between two or more parties. The agreeing parties consent not to disclose information covered by the agreement. This is to protect confidential and proprietary information or trade secrets; as such NDA creates a confidential relationship between the parties. They can share information with one another and these information will be protected or restrict access by third parties because of the NDA. Nonpublic business information will be protected.

In a corporate setting, an employee can be made to sign an NDA or NDA-liked agreement. It will likely contain employment agreement restricting dissemination of company-owned confidential information.

An NDA is also known as a confidentiality agreement (CA), a proprietary information agreement (PIA) a confidential disclosure agreement (CDA) or a secrecy agreement.

• Unilateral NDA. Refers to a one way agreement where disclosure of certain information of a party to another should remain secret because of some pertaining reasons.

• Bilateral NDA. Both parties will be supplying information that is intended to be keep as a secret. This mutual agreement between both parties is commonly done when considering some joint venture or merger.
