A Florida non-disclosure agreement is a document signed by two (2) parties which binds either or both to keep certain confidential or proprietary information out of the hands of a third (3rd) party. Valuable data, software, marketing plans, prototypes, and the like are classified as Confidential Information. Should a party release the information, or Trade Secrets, to another competing business, the damaged party will be able to use the non-disclosure agreement to seek compensation for any lost capital. The agreement is governed by the Florida Statutes (see below for more information).

Laws §§ 688.001 – 688.009 (Uniform Trade Secrets Act)
