Arizona Non-Disclosure Agreement: What Is It?

An Arizona non-disclosure agreement is often referred to as a Confidentiality Agreement. An Arizona non-disclosure agreement is an important legal document. This document protects trade secrets, intellectual property, patents, and more. When an employee or a contractor signs an Arizona non-disclosure agreement, they are promising to keep certain information confidential. However, it is important that an Arizona non-disclosure agreement be reasonable in nature or it will not be held as enforceable by the court.


Arizona State Laws

Arizona non-disclosure agreements are governed by Ariz. Rev. Stat. § 44-401 through § 44-407. It is important that all non-disclosure agreements are reasonable and comply with the above statutes.


Definition of “Trade Secrets”

Since the purpose of an Arizona non-disclosure agreement is to protect a trade secret, it’s important to understand how the law defines a “trade secret.” Under Ariz. Rev. Stat. § 44-401(4), a trade secret is information in a formula, pattern, compilation, program, device, method, technic, or process that:


  • Has actual or potential independent economic value and isn’t general knowledge to others. It also may not be readily determined by others so that they can use it for an economic advantage;
  • Is kept secret using reasonable methods by the company.

Laws

It’s important to make sure that the NDA is reasonable. Arizona non-disclosure agreements should include a specific time-limit. However, the time limit must be reasonable in nature. The geographical area limit must also be considered reasonable. Also review the scope of restrictions and ensure that they are reasonable.


An Arizona non-disclosure agreement is generally part of a contract package for employees and contractors. Another important part of that contract package is an Arizona non-compete agreement.
