Updated February 21, 2023

An Ohio non-disclosure agreement is a document used to protect a business entity’s business interests and Trade Secrets. Signed by one (1) or two (2) parties (if using this template), the agreement contractually binds the signatories to protect the Confidential Information defined therein. If a party should release the secrets of the business to a third party, they will be exclusively and completely liable. The contract can serve as proof that the responsible party was aware of the secrecy of the information in question, that they agreed to keep it secret, and that they were aware of the consequences of failing to do so.

Laws – ORC §§ 1333.61 – 1333.69
