WHAT IS A NON-DISCLOSURE AGREEMENT (“NDA”)?
A non-disclosure agreement (also called an “NDA”) is a contract you use if you’re going to meet (virtually or in-person) with someone outside your company to discuss a potential business opportunity, working together, hiring, a future project, etc. and you want to keep the information you share with them in that meeting confidential. Here’s a likely scenario:
You own your own business and you want to hire a copywriter, social media strategist, funnel expert, or similar — and you don’t want the info you share with her in that meeting to be shared with anyone else. Because otherwise, she could go tell some other business-owner just like you what you’re planning to do or your business’s most closely-held secrets. Maybe you have a brilliant way of using Instagram that’s given you a leg up — or your SEO strategy is ? — you want to keep that stuff locked up. The NDA prevents the other person from being able to go around sharing your secret sauce.
A Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) addresses issues like:
- What information that you share is labeled “confidential”
- Who the other party can share your confidential info with and for what reason.
- Who owns the rights and intellectual property rights to the info you share.
- The penalty if someone shares your confidential information.
- How long they need to keep your info confidential for
DO I NEED A NON-DISCLOSURE AGREEMENT?
If you’re going to hire someone as an independent contractor or meet to talk about potentially working with someone or hiring them for a project, I’d say yes! You’ve worked hard to build your business and get it to where it’s at now. You deserve to protect that secret sauce.
