Unilateral Non-Disclosure Agreement
A Unilateral (“1-way”) Non-Disclosure Agreement is a document used for pinning a person into a binding contract that requires them to keep certain information they learn a secret. The form is used in a wide variety of professions, but is most often found in business due to the severe damage an exposed trade secret can have on a company’s competitive advantage.
