Non-Disclosure Agreement (Two Party Disclosure)
Businesses may exchange proprietary and sensitive information for many
different reasons. It will often be the case that the party which has
developed and owns that information will seek to keep it secret, allowing
the recipient to use that information for limited purposes and prohibiting
This Non-Disclosure Agreement (also known as an NDA or a Confidentiality
Agreement) is designed for use in situations where both parties will be
disclosing confidential information to one another for certain stated
purposes. An alternative Non-Disclosure Agreement template is available for
situations in which only one party is disclosing confidential information.
This document has been updated to include new optional provisions dealing
with personal data in accordance with the GDPR and the Data
Protection Act 2018. The first is designed to cover personal data sharing
(controller-to-controller) and the second, personal data processing
(controller-to-processor). Additional improvements include new, tighter
restrictions on the permitted use of confidential information, more
detailed provisions on “permitted disclosure” to Representatives (e.g.
employees, contractors etc.) and new enforcement and indemnity provisions
designed to offer improved protection and redress.
The provisions of this NDA carefully regulate the parties’ use of the
confidential information and further ensure that each party obtains similar
undertakings of confidentiality and non-disclosure from all relevant
employees and third parties prior to the information being disclosed to it.
The confidential information and the purposes for which it may be used
should be described in the two schedules provided so as to ensure that both
parties to the agreement know exactly what information is confidential and
how that information may (and may not) be used.
Optional phrases / clauses are enclosed in square brackets. These should be
read carefully and selected so as to be compatible with one another. Unused
options should be removed from the document.
