LEGALLy SpEAkING by James W. Pruitt Attorney at Law NONDISCLOSURE AGREEMENTS In light of recent mention of “nondisclosure agreements” (NDAs) in the media, it may prove instructive to point out that these “confidentiality agreements,” as they are also known, are fairly common in business settings as a means of keeping trade secrets and other confidential information private. They are legally enforceable contracts establishing a confidential relationship between a person who holds a trade secret, and a person to whom the secret will be disclosed.Such trade secrets might include: plans for a new product, client information, sales and marketing plans, a unique manufacturing process, customer lists, software, passwords, system specifications and other data. NDAs provide the best possible way of keeping confidential information protected in a number of situations. If violated, the company should have legal recourse to sue for damages.
