An employee may be required to sign an NDA or NDA-type agreement with an employer to protect trade secrets. In fact, some employment contracts contain a clause limiting the use and dissemination by employees of confidential information held by the company. In the case of disputes settled by transaction, the parties often sign a confidentiality agreement relating to the terms of the transaction.   Examples of this agreement are the Dolby brand agreement with Dolby Laboratories, the Windows Insider Agreement, and the Community Feedback Program (CFP) halo with Microsoft. A confidentiality agreement, sometimes called a confidentiality agreement, allows parties with sensitive or valuable information to share that information with other parties without the risk that the other party will use it for their own purposes. If you take an NDA and subsequently breach the agreement, disclosing the confidential information to others or using it for your own purposes, the party who disclosed the confidential information to you can sue you, sue you for damages and ask the judge to order an interim order – a court decision that has been presented to you, stop using the information. A multilateral NDA can be beneficial because the parties involved only re-execute, execute and implement an agreement. . . .
