University Confidentiality Agreement
The following models are intended only for INVO and should not be used for material transfer agreements (ATMs), sponsored research agreements, clinical trials or a potential collaborative research project. Please contact the Office for Sponsored Research to enter into confidentiality agreements that will be used in research projects. For more information, including specific steps to be taken by Stanford University when entering into business or confidentiality advice agreements, see the statement of the university`s statement on business advisory activities by members of the Academic Council. University researchers considering a cooperation project with an industrial partner may wish to exchange proprietary information with the industrial partner who need one or both parties to confidentiality. As a general rule, the party disclosing proprietary information requires the receiving party to sign a confidentiality agreement (NDA) called the Confidential Disclosure Agreement (CDA), the Proprietary Information Agreement (PIA) or a similar title. When creating an NDA, the university proposes an UT Universal NDA model that can be adapted to the acceptance of all parties. NDAs submitted by partners and third parties can often contain provisions outside the confines of government and academic guidelines and require negotiations by delegates. For more information on the university`s standard model agreement, see the « Terms of Confidentiality Agreement » (Annex A in the NDA model). Confidentiality obligations may also be included in various institutional agreements between the university and the industrial partner, such as sponsored research agreements. B, equipment credits, software purchases, technology licenses, data usage agreements and hardware transfer agreements. The control of ANN and agreements such as this is carried out by the relevant university office, usually the Office of Industry Engagement (OIE), the Office of Sponsored Projects (OSP) or the Office of Technology Commercialization (OTC). The OIE will negotiate and sign NDAs through industrial affiliation programs, or where the evaluation of potential sponsored projects will be funded exclusively by industry partners.
The PSO will negotiate and sign NDAs that will include potential sponsored projects funded in whole or in part by public or federal organizations or foundations. NDAs are verified and signed by the Business Contracts Office if no IOP or sponsored project is involved. OTC will audit NDAs for access to intellectual property. I herein confirm that I have no authorization to access, use, delete, disclose, copy, sell, lend, modify or destroy confidential information, unless authorized as part of my obligations at Chicago State University. As a collaborator/student/volunteer, I must comply with local, government and federal university laws and guidelines. I have a duty to protect and preserve all confidential information. Once I have completed my membership at Chicago State University or earlier, as ordered by the university, I will return to the university all copies of all material containing confidential information. In some cases, privacy requests are incorporated into the content of different types of institutional agreements between the university and the sponsor or third parties. For example, institutional agreements include purchases or loans of equipment or software, technology licenses, data exchange agreements and hardware transfer agreements. A Stanford office, usually the Sponsored Research Office or the Industrial Contracts Office, will participate in these institutional agreements and negotiate conditions consistent with academic policy.
