In a previous post, we discussed general terms found in a non-disclosure agreement, or “NDA.” One section found in the typical non-disclosure agreement is the exclusions section. This post will discuss that part in more detail.
NDA exclusions sections generally include five or six different “carve-outs” to secrets or confidential information that are covered by the non-disclosure agreement. Just about any kind of information can be excluded, but the following five types of information are commonly seen carve-outs.
Hopefully, this post and our last on NDAs answered a lot of questions you might have had about NDAs. If you still have questions about NDAs, consult an attorney experienced in intellectual property law.
