Create a high quality document online now!

Updated February 21, 2023

A Rhode Island non-disclosure agreement is used to ensure Trade Secrets remain confidential. Each party signing the form will be bound to protect the Confidential Information identified within the document. Each party must understand that, should they be found responsible for releasing the information to a third party, they will be 100% liable and will face any damages that occurred due to the misappropriation. If one (1) party has complete ownership over the information in question, like in an employer-employee relationship, the agreement can be classified as Unilateral. If both parties have ownership of the Confidential and Proprietary Information, the agreement is Mutual, and both individuals/parties will be legally bound to secrecy.
