Non Dis­clo­sure Agree­ment (NDA) Template




XYZ, Inc., San Fran­cisco, CA (“XYZ”) and ____ wish to dis­close to each other cer­tain Con­fi­den­tial Infor­ma­tion relat­ing to Discloser’s tech­nolo­gies, sys­tems, trade secrets, busi­ness plans and other intel­lec­tual prop­erty, includ­ing infor­ma­tion regard­ing third par­ties, for pur­poses of eval­u­a­tion and deci­sion regard­ing poten­tial busi­ness relationships.


Recip­i­ent agrees to keep, hold, main­tain in con­fi­dence and to nei­ther directly nor indi­rectly dis­close to any third party, for three (3) years, all such Con­fi­den­tial Infor­ma­tion and will use Con­fi­den­tial Infor­ma­tion only to eval­u­ate poten­tial busi­ness rela­tion­ships with Dis­closer.  Recip­i­ent agrees to take all actions nec­es­sary to pro­tect Con­fi­den­tial Infor­ma­tion from unau­tho­rized dis­clo­sure and use.


Recip­i­ent agrees it will return within ten (10) days after writ­ten request by Dis­closer all doc­u­ments and tan­gi­ble con­fi­den­tial infor­ma­tion that may be in Recipient’s pos­ses­sion con­tain­ing any part of dis­closed Con­fi­den­tial Information.


Recipient’s oblig­a­tions of con­fi­den­tial­ity and non-use assumed under this Agree­ment shall not apply to: a) infor­ma­tion which at the time of dis­clo­sure is in the pub­lic domain; b) Infor­ma­tion which becomes part of the pub­lic domain with­out the breach of any con­fi­den­tial­ity oblig­a­tion owed to Dis­closer; c) Infor­ma­tion known to the Recip­i­ent prior to the dis­clo­sure thereof by Dis­closer to Recip­i­ent, as estab­lished by Recipient’s writ­ten records; d) Infor­ma­tion law­fully dis­closed to Recip­i­ent by a third party who does not owe any duty to, and who is not under an oblig­a­tion of con­fi­den­tial­ity to Dis­closer with respect to Con­fi­den­tial Information.


This Agree­ment shall be gov­erned by and con­strued in accor­dance with the laws of the State of Cal­i­for­nia.  Any claim aris­ing out of or in con­nec­tion with this Agree­ment shall be brought in the State of Cal­i­for­nia, County of San Francisco.


Recip­i­ent agrees that unau­tho­rized dis­clo­sure or use of Con­fi­den­tial Infor­ma­tion by Recip­i­ent is likely to give rise to irrepara­ble injury to Dis­closer for which Dis­closer will have no ade­quate rem­edy at law.  Accord­ingly, in the event of any threat­ened or actual dis­clo­sure or use of Con­fi­den­tial Infor­ma­tion in vio­la­tion of this Agree­ment, Dis­closer shall, in addi­tion to all other reme­dies avail­able under law or equity, be enti­tled to obtain injunc­tive relief.  In any action to obtain such injunc­tive relief, Recip­i­ent shall not argue that Dis­closer has or had an ade­quate rem­edy at law.


If any por­tion of this Agree­ment is found to be ille­gal or unen­force­able then Recip­i­ent shall be relieved of respon­si­bil­i­ties aris­ing under such por­tion, to the extent that such por­tion is ille­gal or unen­force­able.  All other pro­vi­sions of this Agree­ment shall remain in full force and effect.


No rights or oblig­a­tions other than those expressly recited herein are implied by this Agree­ment.  In par­tic­u­lar, no license of any kind is hereby granted directly or indi­rectly under any patent, copy­right, trade secret or other intel­lec­tual prop­erty right now held or which may be obtained by Discloser.


This Agree­ment con­sti­tutes the entire under­stand­ing and agree­ment between the par­ties with respect to the sub­ject mat­ter hereof and expressly super­sedes all prior under­stand­ings and agreements.
