I want to hire an app developer, but first… How do I protect my idea?
If you think − despite everything − that protecting your idea before you hire an app developer and share it with him is important, you can get him to sign a non-disclosure agreement (commonly known by its acronym: NDA) before you describe your idea to him.
As in most agreements, you will have to get the following key points reflected on it in order to achieve this:
- The Parties: will include each person involved in the agreement and will contain the following legal information:
1. Full name or company name in the case of a firm (in addition to its agent)
2. Identification document
3. Home or registered office in the case of a firm
- Subject matter: explanation of the agreement’s purpose regarding the exchange of information for the development of a mobile application with specific characteristics.
- Non disclosure: where the mutual agreement is explained − an agreement with which the intellectual property of the idea or project is protected under the agreed terms and conditions.
- It should be noted that − at this point − everything should be specified with as much detail as possible because a development company or a freelancer will usually not sign a NDA on something very generic in nature because it would be very limiting for them regarding future projects.
- Intellectual property: the terms and conditions concerning the protection of the intellectual property will be explained, as well as the rights and obligations of the Parties.
- Amendment or termination: you can include the possibility of terminating the agreement with the express consent of both Parties.
- Jurisdiction: it’s advisable to specify the terms and conditions for arbitration in case of dispute and which rules will govern such arbitration.
- Date, execution and place: a non-disclosure agreement regarding an app project − as any other agreement − should be properly signed and include the date and place of execution.
