Arkansas Non-Disclosure Agreement

The Arkansas Non-Disclosure Agreement, also called a “Confidentiality Agreement,” is a contract used to keep a company’s trade secret from landing in the wrong hands. It is used when an individual will be learning a secret that is considered valuable to the company, such as a recipe or business plan. The individual or company learning the secret (the “Receiving Party”) can be sued by the company sharing the information (the “Disclosing Party”) or faced with injunctive relief issued in court if the secret is disclosed. Below is information regarding Arkansas’ Trade Secret Law and a how-to for completing the NDA.
