Why do I have to sign an NDA when buying a website?

December 04, 2013  |     |     |   0 Comment

confidentiality agreement, sometimes referred to as an NDA or non-disclosure agreement, is an agreement that prospective website buyers sign before receiving confidential information about a website for sale.

Sellers and brokers generally request this signature from buyers. This is because many website business owners don’t want employees, customers, or competitors to know that their business is for sale. And sellers also don’t want unqualified buyers in the general public to be given access to their financials and proprietary systems.

A confidentiality agreement aims to qualify prospective buyers and prevent sensitive business information from falling into the wrong hands.
