A confidentiality agreement (NDA) can be considered unilateral, bilateral or multilateral: confidentiality agreements have many of the same characteristics as a typical contract, but even if all the essential elements are in place to create legal obligations, some of them may still be unenforceable. There are many circumstances in which a court will refuse to apply a confidentiality agreement that would otherwise appear legally binding. As with other contracts, an NDA is only valid if it is taken into account. This means that both parties must be brought to the conclusion of the agreement. With regard to THE ARs between employers and their employees, the consideration is met if the NDA was executed when the employee was recruited.

Confidential information is a basic business requirement. Such information is essential to protect business vitality, competitive advantage, industry leadership and ultimately market share. Sometimes a company has to disclose confidential information to others to promote its business interests. Confidentiality agreements can allow companies to disclose confidential information without taking the risk of losing ownership of that information. However, confidentiality agreements are only as effective as they are enforceable. A valid confidentiality agreement may result in financial harm or an injunction against the aggrieved party. A non-valid agreement may result in the loss of a confidential status of the information.
While the companies recognize the need for confidentiality agreements, they believe that the validity of the conditions or additional measures necessary for the agreement is not applicable. The validity of the agreement depends on the language of its specific conditions, so it is important to be aware of the potential problems that may arise during its application.
