The nondisclosure agreement would be signed by each party prior to negotiations or the sharing of trade secrets or other information that either party wants to keep confidential. Confidential information can include things such as customer lists, technical designs, and your business plan.

We can discuss this more if you want to do so.

If you have further questions or you need further assistance, just let me know.

If not, please remember to rate my answer between 3 to 5 stars without any additional costs to you. That is how I get credit for answering your question. Best regards.
