[What is a Confidentiality Agreement?]

Canadian Confidentiality Agreement

A Confidentiality (or Non-Disclosure) Agreement is used when one party shares private information with another party, and wishes to restrict the receiving party's use of this information so it is not made public. Confidentiality agreements may be used by a variety of persons, including inventors/researchers, employers, and business entities contemplating negotiations.

Type of Agreement:
Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure agreements are very similar in function, with small differences in the formatting of the resulting document. The distinction between the two is quite subtle. For example a Confidentiality Agreement would be violated if the recipient fails to maintain confidentiality (more passive), whereas a Non-Disclosure agreement would be violated by disclosing the information (more active). For most circumstances, either type of agreement is appropriate.
