Why Use a Confidentiality Agreement?

A California confidentiality agreement helps protect the information you disclose to your employee or another party. The recipient of the confidential information agrees not disclose it to anyone else.

The exception is when both parties agree not to disclose information provided to each other. For this situation you would use a mutual non-disclosure agreement.

Ideally, the confidentiality agreement will deter the recipient of such information from using it in any way that could harm your business, or potential business; such as by stealing ideas, inventions, trade secrets, and intellectual property.

Using nondisclosure agreements can also prevent the forfeiture of your patent rights.  Under U.S. law, the public disclosure of an invention can be deemed as a forfeiture of patent rights in that invention.

A properly drafted confidentiality agreement can avoid this often unintentional, but disastrous forfeiture of your valuable patent rights.

Should the recipient of the confidential information disclose it to another individual or company, the injured party has cause to claim a breach of contract and can seek injunctive relief and monetary damages.
