In order to gain a competitive advantage in the marketplace, companies should continue to innovate and work on new projects, products and services to minimize pressure against their competitors. This is the case in a wide range of activities, from technology to finance. A Confidentiality Agreement (NDA) is a legal document intended to contain this sensitive information mentioned above. In a legal document or a larger contract, they are called confidentiality clauses, confidentiality declarations or confidentiality agreements (CA). From a legal point of view, it is a legal contract between at least two parties that aims to explain the knowledge and/or confidential information that the parties wish to communicate only to each other and to restrict third party/party access to all access. In most commercial applications, this “information” is generally referred to as intellectual property, while the term may refer to other sensitive information in cases of bank client confidentiality, solicitor-client privilege, priestly penance privilege, and physician and patient confidentiality. It should be noted, however, that in all previous examples excluding commercial applications, the non-disclosure guarantee is generally not provided in the form of a written agreement between the parties.

Supp 2d 957 (2008)), which was tried on November 21, 2008 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, concerning an applicant`s allegation that the defendant improperly misappropriated the applicant`s trade secrets and thus attempted to prevent the defendant from selling copies of his work. This definition of trade secrets will be useful to future jurisprudence. This case law dealt with the issue of disclosure of trade secrets at the end of a specified period of time and the consequences of the expiry of the contractor`s obligation to protect trade secrets after a specified period of time. Therefore, companies should continue to restrict access to confidential information and trade secrets on the basis of know-how and not fully share that information. All you have to do is reveal secrets when you file your patent application, but not while the patent is in effect. Once your patent application has been approved, you can develop other proprietary objects based on your invention without disclosing them, and you can keep them as trade secrets.
