Frequently Asked Questions

A non-disclosure agreement (also called an “NDA”) is a contract you use if you’re going to meet (virtually or in-person) with someone outside your company to discuss a potential business opportunity, working together, hiring, a future project, etc. and you want to keep the information you share with them in that meeting confidential. Here’s a likely scenario:

You own your own business and you want to hire a copywriter, social media strategist, funnel expert, or similar — and you don’t want the info you share with her in that meeting to be shared with anyone else. Because otherwise, she could go tell some other business-owner just like you what you’re planning to do or your business’s most closely-held secrets. Maybe you have a brilliant way of using Instagram that’s given you a leg up — or your SEO strategy is ? — you want to keep that stuff locked up. The NDA prevents the other person from being able to go around sharing your secret sauce.

Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) addresses issues like:

  • What information that you share is labeled “confidential”
  • Who the other party can share your confidential info with and for what reason.
  • Who owns the rights and intellectual property rights to the info you share.
  • The penalty if someone shares your confidential information.
  • How long they need to keep your info confidential for

If you’re going to hire someone as an independent contractor or meet to talk about potentially working with someone or hiring them for a project, I’d say yes! You’ve worked hard to build your business and get it to where it’s at now. You deserve to protect that secret sauce.

If someone breaks the Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) you’ve issued, as a business owner, you have every right to enforce its terms legally. This breach can lead to serious legal repercussions for the violator, including potential lawsuits for damages. Whether it’s your unique marketing strategy or a secret business process, the breach of an NDA can mean significant financial and competitive harm to your company. In such scenarios, the NDA serves as your legal safeguard, empowering you to hold the other party accountable and protect the integrity and competitive edge of your business.
