Keep your business secrets secret!
A Nondisclosure Agreement is a standard contract used by entrepreneurs to keep valuable information, including intellectual property, confidential during the course of business dealings, including negotiations and general discussions when hiring independent contractors for projects.
This General NDA is drafted for the scenario where one party (you) will be disclosing confidential information to the other party. The other party will not be disclosing their confidential information with you, as it is not necessary. Example use cases: you are sharing your rough sketches of your new logo with a graphic designer so that she can create a professional, high-quality version for you.
