A confidentiality agreement is a legal agreement entered into between parties which provides the party disclosing information with the ability to protect that information by restricting what the party receiving it can do with it. This can include restricting who the information can be shared with, the purpose that the information can be used for and the period of time over which it can be used.
Confidentiality agreements can be one-way, where only one party is sharing information; or mutual, where both parties (or more than two parties) share information with the other(s).
This is the one-way form of Confidentiality Agreement.
