An Ohio non-disclosure agreement, or “confidentiality agreement,” is a contract that restricts the signer’s right to reveal information they receive in confidence. This type of agreement is generally entered into when non-public information is shared with employees, consultants, independent contractors, suppliers, or anyone else who will be exposed to confidential material. By signing the agreement, the parties acknowledge that sensitive and proprietary information is being shared, that the information must remain confidential, and that they will be liable if it is revealed to any third party.
