The Mississippi non-disclosure agreement is a contract that two (2) or more individuals that binds one (1)or both to hold the Confidential Information detailed therein secret and protected. In the case of a Unilateral agreement, in which there is a sole owner of the information (an employer of a company for example), only the second party (e.g., an employee) will be obligated to prevent third parties from accessing it. A Mutual agreement is one in which two (2) or more parties agree to protect the Confidential Information. While Trade Secrets fall under the scope of Confidential Information (definition linked below), the attached contract allows the parties to protect information and data which might not fall under the State’s definition of a Trade Secret.

Definition of “Trade Secret” – § 75-26-3

Laws – § 75-26-1

Non-Compete Agreement – This agreement is similar to a non-disclosure agreement in that it further protects a company’s Trade Secrets. This ensures that an employee will not use the information gained from their experience with the company to compete once they’ve resigned or their position has been terminated.
