What is a Confidentiality Agreement?
A Confidentiality Agreement refers to an agreement about how to share sensitive information safely. These agreements ensure that the person or organisation who is provided access to sensitive information doesn’t disclose it to a third party. In transcription, this means your recordings are not shared on the ‘cloud’, including transferred onto ‘AI’ driven automated speech-to-text software or stored offshore to be worked on by non-UK based team members.
Why USE THIS AGREEMENT?
We have chosen to use this agreement to maximize transparency and trust in our security and confidentiality processes. It is a United Kingdom relevant contract developed by a neutral authoritative party, that is, the UK Government (not a lawyer employed by us trying to protect our position).
The agreement is based on the UK Government’s standard NDA operating agreement see: HERE
