An NDA is a contract where various parties agree not to disclose information covered by the agreement. These have to be specified.
- Unilateral (one-way) NDA – Going into an investor pitch you might have to present an NDA to protect the ideas contained in the presentation.
- Mutual (two-way) NDA – where the parties are exploring a potential relationship. e.g. a company merger where key secrets might be shared.
- Multilateral NDA – where three or more parties are involved. One or more may disclose information but all parties are obliged to protect information.

Very interesting lecture, all good to know when keeping yourself right within legal matters. At the moment I have got some of my slides created and I know where I am going with the pitch. This upcoming week I plan to get slides finished and slides practised as much as I can.
