Non-Disclosure Agreement (one-way)
The Non-Disclosure Agreement (one-way) is Swiss-law governed short form confidentiality agreement for use where one party will be disclosing confidential information to another party in the course of its existing dealings or for the purposes of discussing a potential business relationship. This template is unilateral and only covers the disclosure of confidential information by one party.
As this template imposes obligations of confidentiality only on one party, it may be created with a bias in favour of the disclosing party, a bias in favour of the recipient, or without bias (i.e. neutral). Throughout the interview process, the user is guided as to whether a particular provision is more beneficial for the disclosing party or the recipient.
The template may be configured to describe the nature of the business relationship and the background to the disclosure of confidential obligations (the Business Purpose). The template defines confidential information to include any information relating to the Business Purpose that is disclosed to, or comes to the attention of, the receiving party.
Other terms that are configurable to the user’s needs include:
- Scope and duration of the non-disclosure obligations;
- Restrictions on copies;
- Requirement for other recipients to sign separate confidentiality undertakings;
- Provisions relating to return and retention of confidential information;
- Obligations on termination; and
