Non-Disclosure, Non-Circumvention and Non-Competition Agreements - Not Exactly the Same

We are frequently asked by visitors to us website if Non-disclosure, Non-circumvention and Non-competition agreements (or restrictive clauses in agreements) are the same. Others ask what the difference between the three is. One of the factors that contribute to the confusion is the fact that there many agreements include more than one of these three restrictions.

In this article we will try to explain the difference between the three types of restrictions.

Non-Disclosure Agreement (or clause) is designed to obligate one of the parties (or more) not to disclose or communicate confidential information to any third party and protect such information from disclosure. These agreements (or clauses) are usually found in two instances: when entering into a new business activity or collaboration, or when hiring an employee.

Non-Circumvention Agreement (or clause) is designed to obligate one of the parties (or more) not to contact, deal with or otherwise become involved with any entity or any other entities or parties introduced, directly or indirectly, by or through the other party, without the specific approval of the other party. These agreements are complementary to Non-competition Agreements.

Therefore, it is often advised to business owners to include all three contractual restrictions in their agreement.
