What is a Confidentiality Agreement?
What is confidentiality is defined in the non disclosure agreement template, depending on the circumstances, such as whether employment, patents, software, copyrights, etc., are involved. The prohibited disclosure of information will be outlined in the agreement of non disclosure. The secrecy may be limited in terms of time and a breach of confidentiality can be described geographically as well. For example, a non compete agreement limited in scope to a certain number of miles is more likely to be upheld.
Non-disclosure agreements can protect valuable rights of business owners, patent inventors, software programmers/designers and IT professionals, and more. The sample non disclosure agreements offered by US Legal Forms comply with local laws on a confidential disclosure agreement for your state.

Patents and Software
Have you ever heard of the term patent trolls? These software patent investors threaten patent infringers with enforcement action after buying patents based on their profit potential if enforced. Patent inventors should have nondisclosure agreements with any inventor, copyright and software owner, or employer involved in an application for a patent, in order to protect confidentially held information which would lose value upon disclosure.
Employee nondisclosure agreements define the information which is subject to nondisclosure in the course of employment. US Legal Forms offers a confidential disclosure agreement form, IT confidentiality agreement, non compete agreement, patent application confidentiality agreement, and a wide selection of other non-disclosure agreements to suit your needs.
