What to Include in an NDA?

NDAs can be modified to any extent, however, there are six key components that must be included:

  1. The names of the contracting parties
  2. In this situation, a definition of what constitutes confidential information.
  3. Any exceptions to the rule of secrecy
  4. A statement describing how the information to be released should be used.
  5. The time periods in question
  6. Provisions of a different nature

A non-disclosure agreement or NDA is a written contract between two parties (people or organizations) that prohibits the sharing of confidential information shared between both the ends.

  • Definition of Confidential Information
  • Explanation of Purpose for Disclosure
  • The Parties to the Agreement
  • No Disclosure
  • No Use
  • Exclusions from Confidential Information or Limits on Information Deemed Confidential
