A non-disclosure agreement, or “NDA”, requires an individual or entity to withhold from releasing sensitive information. The party receiving the confidential information will be prohibited from sharing verbally, in print, or taking action to benefit themselves. Non-disclosure agreements are primarily used to protect trade secrets which, if made public, could bring legal and/or financial damages to the releasing party. This is common for companies, especially in technology, who do not want their advancements being known by their competitors.
