Virtually every business, large or small, needs to protect sensitive information in the course of engaging in business transactions, and confidentiality agreements are the most commonly used mechanism to provide for non-disclosure of vital information.
The ICC Model Confidentiality Agreement is the latest in a series of widely used model contracts published by the International Chamber of Commerce.
The model confidentiality agreement and stand-alone model confidentiality clause are designed to assist business people and lawyers by providing balanced, reliable models that can be used in transactions across sectors and borders. In particular, the models allow parties flexibility to tailor the provisions to their transactions, providing alternative language for situations having more than one solution, and highlighting issues that warrant consideration.
Practical and flexible, ICC Model Confidentiality Agreement and ICC Model Confidentiality Clause are essential tools to help businesses engaged in international transactions protect their competitive edge.
