Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs) are legal documents that establish contractual conditions for the exchange of information where a disclosing party shares confidential information with a receiving party. The NDA defines information that the parties wish to protect from dissemination and outlines restrictions on use.
Many types of information are exchanged under an NDA: ideas, know-how, process descriptions, chemical formulas, manufacturing processes, IP licensing and development, research and financial information. Depending on which party is disclosing information, NDAs may be “one-way” with one party disclosing information and one party receiving, or “two-way” when there is a mutual disclosure.
Georgia Tech has several offices that help put NDAs in place, depending on the type of information being shared and the parties involved. Use the information and examples below to determine which group can help you put your NDA in place.
Where do I go for NDA support?
Note: Georgia Tech does not administer or otherwise support NDAs in support of private consulting agreements executed by employees and outside entities in support of consulting to be performed by Georgia Tech employees outside of their Institute job responsibilities. While these agreements are handled externally between the employee and the external party engaging the employee as a consultant, Georgia Tech personnel are reminded to follow all relevant policies for disclosure of all external activities prior to executing agreements with external entities.
