What are Non Disclosure Agreements (NDA)?

If you need confidentiality and you select a project type that permits non disclosure agreement (NDAs are available in Standard and Pro projects), we'll make all participating creatives agree to never disclose any information or work they did for your project. Creatives will see a "public" description of the project and must execute a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) before they are permitted to see the full project brief and materials. We'll email you a written copy of an NDA for each participating creative in your project.

The NDAs are 1-page documents and are not signed in writing. When creatives ask to partiicpate in a project protected by an NDA, we require them to provide their real name and agree to the terms of the NDA. We record their name and agreement electronically and store this information in our database (associated with the specific NDA). You might be familiar with online and offline software where you click a box when agreeing to the terms (for example, you do this when using iTunes). Those systems work similarly to what we've built and we can share that we've never had an issue with that process.

We offer two different types of NDAs: the first allows creatives to display their entries in their portfolio and the second does not allow portfolio display.

You can use a crowdSPRING NDA or you can upload your own custom NDA at the time that you post your project.
