Who can use this Confidentiality Undertaking?
Any business wanting a short confidentiality undertaking from an individual whose services they are about to engage should use this document.
What is this Confidentiality Undertaking for?
By getting this undertaking signed, you will be guarding against the risk of trade secrets or commercially sensitive information being disclosed to third parties.
What are the main issues?
First, you need to define what you mean by confidential information: make this as wide as possible.
Then you need a clear undertaking from the individual not to disclose on a permit any disclosure of confidential information.
Also, specify what happens if the individual ceases to work for you: is confidential data to be returned or destroyed.
The undertaking should say whether its duration is open-ended or limited in time.
What detailed terms does the confidentiality undertaking contain?
It is in the form of letter from the individual to the business. It consists of seven paragraphs.
