Questions and Answers
What’s so special about these NDA terms?
Nothing. The difference is all in handling: how the terms are published, proposed, and agreed.
The first page of a Guestbook NDA proposal either links to the terms here on guestbooknda.com or guarantees that the terms attached are the same as those published here. Once you’ve reviewed a version of the Guestbook NDA, you can propose and receive proposals to sign it over and over, without ever having to review it again.
What kind of NDA is this?
Guestbook NDA terms are typical of the kinds of terms one campany offers another before sharing confidential information.
The Guestbook NDA is not the kind of NDA companies sign with employees or independent contractors. For a form of that kind, see Square One. Nor is the Guestbook NDA the kind of NDA companies sign before mergers-and-acquisitions due diligence or other infrequent, specialized deals. If you’re interested in a standard pre-M&A NDA, send us an e-mail.
Will these terms improve over time?
Yes. New versions will appear on this site. However, once a version appears on this site, that version will always read exactly the same. Old versions will remain available.
You can subscribe to an RSS feed of new versions, as you would to a feed of new posts to a blog.
Did lawyers write and review the Guestbook NDA?
Yes. But they are not professionally responsible to you.
If you have access to a lawyer of your own, you should have them review and approve the latest version. Your lawyer can tell you whether and when the Guestbook NDA is right for you.
If your lawyer has comments, feel free to have them e-mail email@example.com. We’ve incorporated good feedback before, and we’ll gladly do it again.
Does this NDA work outside the USA?
United States, Canada, and UK lawyers have reviewed and approved the core legal terms. We’re actively seeking similar reads from other common-law legal practitioners. If you’re a lawyer from a non-US common-law jurisdiction, or a client with access to advice from one, download the latest version and e-mail thoughts or a markup to firstname.lastname@example.org.
How can I help promote the Guestbook NDA?
The most important way to promote the Guestbook NDA is to use the Guestbook NDA. Everyone who receives a Guestbook NDA proposal gets live-action demonstration of how they can save time and hassle.
Apart from that, spread the word! Feel free to link to mention Guestbook NDA to friends and colleagues, and to link to guestbooknda.com on blogs and social media. If you’d like to share how the Guestbook NDA has helped you or your company, mention @guestbooknda so we can see and share.
