For many companies today, one of their most valuable assets is their Intellectual Property (IP). Companies must take appropriate steps to protect the value of this asset, as they would any physical asset, yet must also utilize it to its full potential.

A non-disclosure agreement (NDA), sometimes called a confidentiality agreement, allows a company to share its IP with others, whose input it needs, without unduly jeopardizing that information. For example, if you have a new product or feature in development, but you need to consult an expert for advice on how to proceed, an appropriate NDA can ensure that the expert doesn't hand the details of your new product to a competitor of yours.
 
A non-disclosure agreement is a legal contract between you and the other party. You agree to disclose certain information to them for a specific purpose. They agree to not disclose that information to anyone else. Sample agreements are included at the bottom of this article.
