Mississippi Non-Disclosure Agreement

The Mississippi Non-Disclosure Agreement is used when two (2) or more parties will be discussing confidential information, and one (1) or more of the parties need to ensure the other party doesn’t disclose the sensitive information to third parties, such as the general public or competitors. Confidential information commonly protected include business plans, patient test results (in a medical setting), recipes, or methods. Below you will find an overview of Mississippi’s law regarding Trade Secrets as well as a how-to for our PDF and Word versions.

Trade Secret Law

Mississippi’s Uniform Trade Secrets Act, Title 75 Chapter 26, contains ten (10) sections that go over how misappropriation (aka ‘Embezzlement’) is handled in the state, and how victims of the crime can go about getting compensation and having the courts forcibly stop entities from profiting from misappropriation via an injunction.

How to Write

Step 1 – Download the contract in PDF or Word. It is essential that all parties agree on the terms and conditions in the contract. If there need to be additions, removals, or edits to the conditions listed in the NDA we offer, make these before heading to the next step.

Step 2 – Enter the Current Date in the field at the top of the page (Day, Month, and Year). Then, have the parties write their Names and Addresses into the respective fields. The “Disclosing Party” is the entity releasing information to the other party, called the “Receiving Party.”


Step 3 – At the bottom of the second (2nd) page, have both parties write their Printed Names, their Company Titles (if not signing as a company, leave blank), and the Dates they will be signing the contract. At this point, all fields (except the signatures) should be complete. Now, the parties can sign their full legal names into the areas provided – officially binding the entities to the conditions outlined in the agreement.
