A unilateral NDA (sometimes referred to as a single-use NDA) consists of two parts for which only one party (i.e. the disclosing party) precludes the disclosure of certain information to the other party (i.e. the receiving party) and requires that the information be protected, for whatever reason, from further disclosure (e.g.B the secrecy necessary for compliance with patent law or the legal protection of trade secrets. Limit the disclosure of information prior to the issuance of a press release for an important announcement or simply ensure that a receiving party does not use or disclose information without compensating the disclosed party). A multilateral NDA consists of three or more parties when at least one of the parties is afraid to disclose information to the other parties and requires that the information be protected from further disclosure. This type of NDA makes separate unilateral or bilateral NDAs between only two parties redundant. For example, a single multi-party NDA, concluded by three parties each intending to provide information to the other two parties, could be used instead of three separate bilateral NDAs between the first and second parts, the second and third parts, the third and third parts. A multilateral NDA can be beneficial, as the parties involved only re-execute, execute and implement one agreement. This advantage can, however, be offset by more complex negotiations that may be necessary to enable the parties concerned to reach a unanimous consensus on a multilateral agreement. A confidentiality agreement can protect any type of information that is not known to everyone. However, confidentiality agreements may also contain clauses protecting the person receiving the information, so that if they have lawfully obtained the information through other sources, they would not be required to keep the information secret.  In other words, the confidentiality agreement generally requires that the party receiving information remain confidential when that information has been provided directly by the disclosed party.
However, sometimes it is easier to get a receiving party to sign a simple agreement, which is shorter, less complex, and does not contain security rules to protect the recipient.
