An Alaska non-disclosure agreement allows individuals and entities to protect their trade secrets. The term of the agreement is usually perpetual and lasts until either the information becomes public or the releasor grants a release. If there are two (2) parties to the agreement, it is considered a mutual agreement where they will be bound to each other. This type of agreement is common when technology is shared in an effort to produce a product or service that serves the interests of both parties.

There are no signing requirements although it is recommended to have the signatures witnessed by a third (3rd) party or a notary public.
