Questions and Answers

What’s so special about these NDA terms?

Nothing.

The Waypoint NDA differs from other NDAs in that you only have to read it once. Every copy of The Waypoint NDA comes with a certificate from the side proposing the NDA, guaranteeing that the terms are exactly the same as those published on this site.

What kind of NDA is this?

These terms are typical of the kinds of terms companies sign before discussing sales, partnerships, and other relatively routine business transactions.

These terms are not the kind of terms companies sign with other companies before mergers-and-acquisitions due diligence or other infrequent, specialized deals.

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.

If you would like an e-mail every time a new version comes out, subscribe via RSS.

Did lawyers write and review this?

Yes. But they are not your lawyers, or responsible to you for legal advice.

You should have your lawyer review and approve the latest version. They can tell you whether and when The Waypoint NDA is right for you.

If your lawyer has comments, feel free to have them e-mail comments@waypointnda.com. We’ve incorporated good feedback before, and we’ll gladly do it again.

Does this NDA work outside the USA?

These terms were written for common-law jurisdictions, and require the party proposing the NDA to pick the state, country, or other jurisdiction for governing law.

United States, Canada, and UK lawyers have reviewed and approved the form. We’re actively seeking similar reads from other common-law legal practitioners:
