Confidential Disclosure Agreements are often made between an employer and an employee, formalizing their relationship in regard to sensitive information. If an employee may potentially have access to private or sensitive information with commercial value, the employer needs to ensure that this data will not be disclosed to any third party. These agreements can be also made between businesses or be signed by several business partners when sharing mutually sensitive information so that all negotiations can continue honestly and fairly. Legally-binding contracts will help formalize the relationship and provide proper remedies if the information is leaked or released.
