If any of the parties involved don’t honour this agreement after it is signed then the injured party has some recourse to pursue damages.

Sometimes the more formal reciprocal confidentiality agreement is daunting to one of the parties about to exchange information. In this case, the confidentiality letter could work as well. It is a shorter, less formal agreement because it is written in the style of a letter. After this is signed both parties may realise that the reciprocal confidentiality agreement is the next logical step.

An example of a time where a reciprocal confidentiality agreement might be used is if you already have a product developed with a patent that another company wishes to licence from you. They want to have your permission to sell the same product. By signing a reciprocal agreement both parties will benefit because the new company can now sell the product, but they can’t disclose any information about the product. So the signing of the reciprocal confidentiality agreement helps both parties.

In this example, you can understand that both parties feel the need to have a reciprocal confidentiality agreement. It is the most important to the initial developer of the idea to have it protected so this agreement will provide that.
