This privacy agreement is based on our one-sided/premium NDA model, but with some important changes. A definition of “concept” has been added to allow you to adapt the model for different concepts and different types of concepts. The confidential information protected by the document is defined by reference to the concept. The document also contains a particular term with regard to the purposes for which confidential information may be used: in short, to allow the recipient to examine the concept and prepare and/or refine a business proposal regarding the concept. A specific confidentiality agreement can be helpful in protecting customers` confidential information, while emphasizing that the designer or developer is not prevented from using their own or public information. Potential customers sometimes worry that web designers might abuse the information provided when collecting an offer, such as a new business plan or an idea for a website. This document can be used to allay these fears: it creates a balance between, on the one hand, the rights of the potential customer in relation to confidential information and, on the other hand, the right of the web designer to be free from unjustified restrictions when performing future business. The receiving party is excluded from ensuring that the information received remains confidential if the receiving party received the information before signing an agreement with the disclosed party or if the information is known to the public before disclosure. The disclosure of a new concept to a media company (whether it is a book, film, theatrical production, television show, game or other media work) may be accompanied by the fear that the media company will adopt the concept without notice or reward to the person or company that developed the concept. One of the ways to address these types of concerns is to protect the concept through a confidentiality agreement.
Communication, discussion and preparation of a business proposal usually involves the disclosure of confidential information. This confidential information can take many forms, such as technical specifications, financial data, and marketing plans. Regardless of the form, the disclosing party should think carefully about how to protect that information from abuse and unauthorized disclosure. Step 2 – The first paragraph should contain the date on which the agreement is established, the name of the first party and the name of the second party. This confidentiality agreement – an adapted version of the generic reciprocity/premium document we publish – was established for these circumstances. It defines two distinct categories of information: confidential information disclosed by the first party for the second and confidential information disclosed by the second part for the first part. The model is based on our premium/unilateral NDA….
