A Non-Disclosure Agreement is a contract that requires the signer (the creative) to keep confidential and not to share any information pertaining to your project with anyone else.
NDAs are 1-page documents electronically signed by each creative. When a creative asks to participate in a project protected by an NDA, they are required to provide their real legal name and agree to the terms of the NDA. We record creatives’ names and agreement electronically. We store this information in our database associated with your specific NDA. And of course, creatives will also sign the NDA and we’ll send a copy of their signed copy directly to you.
Does your project require confidentiality?
Not all projects do. But if you need to keep information in your project confidential, choose to include an NDA. (Please note that NDAs are available with Gold, Elite and Platinum projects, but are not offered in Silver projects).
When you require an NDA in your projects, creatives will have access to a limited “public” project description - created by you - until they have signed the NDA. Once they have signed the NDA, they will gain access to the full project brief and be permitted to submit entries. We'll email you a written copy of an NDA for each Creative participating in your project.
When you select an NDA for your project, you’ll have to decide whether you will allow creatives to display their entries in their portfolio after the project closes or whether you won’t allow portfolio display. The choice is completely up to you and we’ll make your decision clear in the NDA each creative will review and sign.
