What is NDA?
A nondisclosure agreement is essentially a contract. This is a document between the two parties about what to do or not do to get a benefit or cause damage. For a nondisclosure agreement to be considered legal, it must meet basic requirements.
One of these requirements is the mandatory reading of the contents of the document by both parties. When signing an NDA online, it is difficult to verify this condition; therefore, an agreement intended for signing under an electronic signature is always begun with it.
It is necessary to make sure that both parties to the agreement have reached 18 or 21 years, depending on the state, and are also mentally balanced. The last conclusion you could draw from the communication that preceded the formation of the agreement.
Another necessary condition is that a nondisclosure agreement should not be based on any illegal actions; otherwise, it automatically loses legal force.
Who signs the NDA?
The terms of the agreement may cover two or more specific individuals or entire private enterprises. If the document relates to the company, the signature is put by the responsible person representing it. This may be the director, his representative. Authority to set the details must also be pre-registered with the relevant resolution.
