Four Easy Ways to Help Keep NDAs Secret

Here are some tips that actually work in trying to soothe your appetite from accidentally revealing an NDA, or non-disclosure agreement.. I haven’t signed an NDA in months but I feel that these tips can help you, if ever you get hold of something juicy, relax and bring you back to your normalcy. Here are some suggestions:

  • lock yourself alone in the car and scream it out loud
  • take a cold shower
  • write it down on a piece of paper and set it on fire afterwards
  • eloquently tell it to your pet dog, cat or fish and make him / her promise not to tell anyone

For reference, Wikipedia outlines the definition of an NDA:

A non-disclosure agreement (NDA), also called a confidential disclosure agreement (CDA), confidentiality agreement or secrecy agreement, is a legal contract between at least two parties that outlines confidential materials or knowledge the parties wish to share with one another for certain purposes, but wish to restrict from generalized use. In other words, it is a contract through which the parties agree not to disclose information covered by the agreement. In rare cases, the contract may state that the existence of the NDA itself cannot be disclosed. [citation needed] An NDA creates a confidential relationship between the parties to protect any type of trade secret. As such, an NDA can protect non-public business information.

On your 5th point, I did just that. I made the Myna at the public zoo promise not to tell. And he DID say, “I promise” in that usual voice that went up the corners. You CANNOT trust them loose lipped critters.. tsk tsk.
