A Virginia non-disclosure agreement is an agreement used to protect the business interests of the parties involved. Confidential Information held by the company can diminish in economic value if released to the public or to third-party competitors. Therefore, this agreement is used to ensure that those exposed to the company’s Trade Secrets are made liable should they purposefully or accidentally disclose the information to an individual outside the organization. The below template can be used for both Unilateral and Mutual agreements.
