How to create a Non-Disclosure Agreement on Legislate.

A Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) is a legal contract between the discloser and recipient of confidential information for a specific period of time.

NDAs can be one-way (when one party is sharing confidential information) or mutual (when both parties are sharing confidential information).

The confidential information may be technical or commercial in nature and must not be disclosed to third parties or used in an unauthorised manner.

Legislate allows users to create NDAs simply and efficiently.

Step 1

From the Legislate dashboard, select ‘Create Contract’.


You will then see a list of contracts that you can make on Legislate. Select ‘Non-Disclosure Agreement’.

Step 2

Define the scope of your contract and fill in the contract terms. This is where you will enter key information, such as the type of NDA (one-way or mutual), the type of information being disclosed and the term of confidentiality.


You might find that some terms are autofilled. These autofilled terms are the ones that are most frequently selected by our users.

Step 3

Next, enter your own personal details and the details of the parties to the contract, whether that be yourself or your company. The other party can be a person, such as an employee, or another company, that you may be working with - for example.

This is also where you will be able to add additional collaborators to the contract. For example, if you have managers or directors that may need to be involved in the contracting process this is an easy way to get them involved!

Step 4

Legislate provides a streamlined communication process between the parties to the contract. Use the Activity tab to discuss the terms of the contract, ask questions or let the other party know that you have signed the contract. You will also be notified here that the contract has been signed by the other party, as well as receiving an email from Legislate.


Step 5

Sign! Your NDA is now ready to be signed. You can sign your Legislate contract by using your mouse or trackpad. Alternatively, you can upload an existing signature to the platform.
