Avoid legal overwhelm and lawyer's fees and protect your valuable information instantly with our simple Confidentiality Agreement (supplied in Word and PDF formats).
WHY YOU NEED A CONFIDENTIALITY AGREEMENT
If you disclose confidential information to another business, you should put a Confidentiality Contract in black & white. It will help you protect your information so it is only used for a specific purpose and only shared on a need-to-know basis.
You can use this Agreement to stop people stealing your business and protect your intellectual property.
Likewise, if you’re asking another party to give you their confidential information, you can offer to sign a Confidentiality Agreement so they feel more comfortable talking to you.
WHEN TO USE THIS CONFIDENTIALITY AGREEMENT
This Confidentiality Agreement (also called an NDA or Non Disclosure Agreement) can be used for most businesses who are sharing confidential information with each other.
You can use Legal Zebra's downloadable Template to put a basic legally binding Confidentiality Agreement in place, instantly.
The Legal Zebra Template is up to date and suitable for use in all States and Territories of Australia including NSW, VIC, ACT, WA, SA, NT, Tasmania and Queensland. Many people outside Australia also use this document because it's so easy to use.
If your confidentiality arrangements are complicated, or the transaction has substantial value, you should seek personalised advice from a lawyer and accountant.
A Confidentiality Agreement is often referred to as a Confidential Disclosure Agreement (CDA), a Confidentiality Deed or a Non Disclosure Agreement (NDA). The term "NDA" is popular in the USA, while in Australia and the UK the document is more commonly called a Confidentiality Agreement.
Here are some examples of when to use our Confidentiality Agreement Template...
Example: Simple Confidentiality Agreement for Sale of Business
We are giving price lists, supplier and customer information to a party who is interested in buying our business. We want to make sure that they don't use this information if they don't go ahead with the purchase. We need some protection in case they are just "tyre kickers" snooping around for our company secrets.
Example: Developing a new product with a manufacturer, use our NDA
As a developer of cosmetic products, I need a simple agreement with my manufacturers. We work together to develop the products. I need to protect my recipes. So we need a confidentiality agreement.
Example: Pitching a new business idea or concept, protect your IP with this NDA
Our startup is regularly pitching to potential investors, employees and strategic partners. Sometimes we even pitch to competitors. We want to make sure they don't steal our ideas. So, we just need a simple One Way Non Disclosure Agreement that's fair for both parties.
WHAT'S COVERED IN THIS CONFIDENTIALITY AGREEMENT TEMPLATE
Legal Zebra's Australian Confidentiality Agreement Template includes these important provisions...
DESCRIBE YOUR SECRET INFO
Include details of your specific confidential information (customer lists, pricing, business plans, etc) so there's no dispute about what should be kept secret.
PROTECTS BOTH PARTIES INFO
This is a one-way (one party disclosing) confidentiality agreement so it protects the disclosing parties information.
CHOOSE YOUR JURISDICTION
State where you want disputes heard. For example, choose NSW if you live there so you won't have to travel if there is a dispute about the agreement.
GET YOUR INFORMATION BACK
Under the Agreement, you can require the other party to return your information (drawings, plans, pictures, etc) when you finish dealing with them.
This Confidentiality Agreement will continue until neither party holds any more confidential information.
CUSTOMISE WITH ADDITIONAL TERMS
You can customise this Confidentiality Agreement with your own additional terms.
