Non Disclosure Agreement (NDA)


In some cases, when clients would like to hold a “private” challenge that has confidentiality terms in addition to the usual click-through terms, the challenge will require a Non-Disclosure Agreement or “NDA” document to be completed prior to participation in the challenge. The Non-Disclosure Agreement requires members to strictly maintain the confidentiality of the competition materials. The NDA requires members to maintain the confidentiality of all competition materials that the member has access to as part of the challenge. The NDA may be used, for example, when a client does not want to make public the functionality or the branding information that is provided to the members as part of the challenge, or which the members may develop during the challenge. The NDA is designed to apply only to those challenges which are designated as requiring an NDA for participation. Members can not gain access to the challenge specifications or the private forums until they have submitted an NDA. If the member has an NDA on file, the member may access the challenge without additional action. This page describes the NDA document and the submission process. Please direct any questions or comments to Members can submit an NDA at the time that they wish to join a private challenge, at which time the document will be reviewed, or members can submit their NDA at any time prior to the challenge.
