Need to have your creative work edited, or reviewed? Looking for producers for your new script?

If you need to keep others from spilling the beans on your idea then you need to keep quiet or execute a non-disclosure agreement. Protect yo’self and your creative work  from unauthorized disclosure with this comprehensive non-disclosure template.

Not sure how to fill out a template? Here are some basic tips to help!

1. When contracting with another party, make sure you know the legal name of that person or entity. You want to make sure that you are binding the right person to the agreement. If you are contracting with a business, check your Secretary of State registry to ensure you have the full legal name and address of the business.

2. To appear SUPER professional, fill out the template in MS Word or another word processing platform BEFORE you present it to the other party. But, if you are running short on time and need to fill in your template in pen or pencil, it will still be binding.

3. Signing and filling contracts by hand is so 2005! Take the stress out of executing your agreements by using an electronic signature platform like DocuSign, HelloSign or AdobeSign to sign and disseminate your agreements.

4. Sometimes just mentioning the words “non-disclosure agreement” can make people nervous. Insist that folks sign the agreement anyway. Be sure to remind them that if they aren’t going to tell then they should have no problems putting that in writing.

5. You can’t restrict people from disclosing every single thing you say to them ever in life. Be sure to include a clear, accurate description of the creative work you don’t wish disclosed.
