A guide to understanding Stanford`s policies, procedures and resources for confidentiality and confidentiality agreements. In order to ensure that the information, knowledge or results of the search disclosed to another party remain confidential and are not misused, a confidentiality agreement (CDA) or confidentiality agreement (NDA) should be established between the supplier and the recipient of this information. A confidentiality agreement (sometimes called a «confidentiality agreement») is a legal contract in which the signatory agrees not to disclose the information covered by the agreement. Scientific research often uses confidentiality agreements between researchers and members of their research team (for example. B translators, transcribers, students) who, as part of their role in a research project, can obtain confidential and/or sensitive information. By signing below, you indicate that you have read and understood the above agreement and that you will comply with all the specified conditions. Stanford`s policy allows researchers to sign NDAs in their own property. IPs and other members of the study team are not eligible to sign on behalf of Stanford University. Clinical Trial Contract Officers (CT CO) of the Research Management Group (RMG) have designated the signature authority for the negotiation and signing of the NDAs on behalf of Stanford University.
It is important that you do not sign the confidentiality agreement yourself, as ROO is an approved university signatory who must sign the agreement on your behalf. Any revision, negotiation and subsequent approval of the proposed agreement will be reviewed by the ROO. The work done under a advisory agreement is not the responsibility of the person at Stanford. The instructions on this page do not apply to advice agreements. Because of the significant risk, a person who has agreed to receive export-controlled information as part of a advisory agreement should not place this controlled information on campus or use it in a «random» manner with Stanford real estate. Apart from the guidelines provided here, Stanford University does not review these agreements or provide guidelines. If you have other questions about an agreement between you and a sponsor and yourself, you can speak to your own legal counsel. The acceptance of third-party technical information, limited by disclosure, exposes the recipient to a risk of compliance «perceived as an export.»
