Strathclyde Forensics operates on the premise that any communication, interaction and transaction remains confidential at all times. This means that we shall not disclose or discuss any of your private or business details with anyone other than the client and their appointed representatives (i.e. the client's lawyers).
When the client believes that it is necessary to hold a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) we are happy to provide one.
Our Non-Disclosure Agreement can be a unilateral (where only one party is bound not to disclose) or a bilateral (where both parties are bound by the same provisions). The nature of the NDA will be decided on a case to case basis.
A Non-Disclosure Agreement provides a legally binding guarantee that we shall not disclose to any third parties or put into the public domain any personal information, proprietary or trade secrets. This can be particularly important when the client needs to provide evidence of due diligence.
Any involuntary disclosure can only occur under oath, and only at the instruction of a court of law.
Our confidentiality is part of our corporate philosophy. A client does not need an NDA to have their private data kept private. Every private conversation and discovery will be kept private and confidential in any case. The NDA is for purposes of assurance and due diligence.
