What is an NDA?
When a business wants a sure-fire way to protect sensitive information from entering public knowledge, they may consider drafting a non-disclosure agreement. These documents typically detail the sensitive information that is being protected, the time period for which the NDA lasts, and the requirements that all parties involved are required to meet. If an individual violates an NDA, they may face legal action for breach of agreement. Non-disclosure agreements can be used in a business setting to protect the following information:
- Trade secrets
- Sales or marketing plans
- Client information
- Information about new products or services
When are NDA’s used?
Non-disclosure agreements can be used in a wide range of business situations. A few examples of when a business might choose to draft a document of this nature include the following:
- Upon sharing a trade secret
- Starting a business relationship between an attorney and a client or a doctor and a patient
- Business plans or plans for a new product
- Upon providing information to a reporter who is writing about the business
- Upon hiring a new employee that will have access to confidential information
Violating an NDA
If a non-disclosure agreement has been violated by one or more of the parties who agreed to it, the individual who breached this agreement can be held liable. Usually, upon drafting an NDA, the penalties of such a violation will be included. The theft of information or breach of confidentiality will need to be investigated to determine exactly what happened. You may be able to pursue damages for the breach of contract, patent or copyright infringement, misappropriation of trade secrets, breach of fiduciary, and more, with the help of an experienced legal team. Of course, you will be required to prove that the NDA was violated, which can be challenging.
