Confidentiality Agreement/NDA: Mutual – Long
Long form confidentiality agreement for use where both parties will disclose their confidential information to the other party
Why use Confidentiality Agreements?
Confidentiality Agreements (also known as NDAs) are used in corporate and commercial transactions as a preliminary agreement to enable parties to disclose confidential information prior to them discussing the main transaction.
By first entering into an NDA, the parties can exchange confidential information with each other with the assurance that, if the negotiations on the main transaction break down, the confidential information which has been disclosed will be protected by a legally enforceable agreement.
About this Confidentiality Agreement

The document is a long form agreement and contains relatively strong legal protections for the benefit of a party in its capacity as the discloser of confidential information.
