About this document
Generally, a confidentiality (or non-disclosure) agreement restricts the other party who signs it from disclosing or revealing your sensitive information to anyone else.
Sometimes, however, there are circumstances that were not foreseen at the time of signing the agreement that require the party bound by the agreement to disclose some information to someone else.
For example, the only way a contractor might be able to complete a task is to hire a specialist subcontractor. In order to carry out the task, the subcontractor will need to know some of the sensitive information.
An authorisation letter such as this one gives permission to the person who is bound by the NDA to break the terms of it, subject to limitations of scope of what information may be disclosed and to whom.
It can be used in a wide variety of situations such as:
- business sale
- subcontracting of work
it ensures that while the terms of the original agreement are relaxed, your confidential information is not passed into the wrong hands. Use it to protect your interests.
The document is written in plain English, and comes with guidance notes to help you edit it to suit your circumstances.
- Broadly defined confidential information
- Public domain exceptions carefully restricted
- Details specifically who may receive the information and how
- Damages quantified in advance
- Usual legal provisions to protect your interests
