A Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) is a legal document through which the signing parties agree not to share information with external entities. NDAs are a common facet of many industries and projects whenever the work may be confidential or on a need-to-know basis. There are many reasons why you may want to sign an NDA when working on a machining project.
You may be working with a machining service for the development of a new product or method of manufacture. This product is your valuable intellectual property. The success of this product depends on information about it not being leaked prior to it being ready for sale or a competitor. When looking for a partner to help you prototype and perfect your idea, you want to be sure that you are working with someone who you can depend on to keep your idea safe.
Beyond just protecting a new idea, an NDA may be beneficial for other machining projects. Word of a repair or facility maintenance could be used maliciously, or a competitor may want to seize on the opportunity to steal your customers or projects.
An NDA ensures trust and lets you be comfortable speaking freely to your business partner on the project at hand; knowing that their best interests are for your best interests to be protected and that the information you are coming to them with will not be shared with outsiders.
