Independent Contractor Agreement
Need help but don't want all the obligations of an employee? This Agreement can help you get what you need in a flexible relationship, while protecting yourself.

What is a non-disclosure agreement (NDA)?
Non-Disclosure Agreements help companies protect trade secrets and other non-public information. They're typically a contract between one party, such as your business, and another party, such as a prospective employee or contractor.
Do I really need a non-disclosure agreement (NDA)?
If you want to disclose information to someone while limiting the risk of that information becoming. public, then you need an NDA. Whether you're asking an advertising agency to help you create a new digital ad, or you need to hire a graphic designer to create a new product brochure, an NDA helps keep your trade secrets and other information away from your competitors or others who might use it to damage your business.
What happens if I don't use a non-disclosure agreement, or rely on a free template I found online?
Let's say you're hiring a new engineer, and during the interview process you need to ask them questions about your technology — questions that disclose some of your proprietary intellectual property. If you don't have an NDA, they can use that information at another job, maybe with a competitor of yours. Or they can tell the media, undercutting an upcoming product launch you'd planned.
Any time you disclose any information which you don't want to become public, you need an NDA. But not all NDAs are created equal. NDAs which fail to account for varying state laws, treat employees the same as third-parties, or are otherwise not built for your company’s specific needs may be unenforceable —or even expose you to legal risk.
