A confidentiality agreement is a legally enforceable agreement preventing present or past employees from disclosing commercially sensitive information belonging to the employer to any other party. Also known as a confidentiality agreement, these types of agreements are often used in the high-tech industry, particularly in computer and Internet companies to protect trade secrets. A good confidentiality agreement should include a good description of the trade secret, permissible uses of the trade secret material, a duty of confidentiality, a remedy for non-compliance with the agreement, and the length of the agreement.
