Queen's University has created a series of templates for Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure Agreements (CNDAs). These agreements are legally binding undertakings intended to protect the University's personal and confidential information.
These agreements can be used by Queen's University. Signed copies should be retained by the unit's business officer (or equivalent) for the duration of the working relationship plus seven years.
Agreements are in PDF format. PDF files can be read for free using Adobe Reader.
|CNDA for Staff (279 KB)||Staff joining the University|
|CNDA for Contractors (280 KB)||Interim and contractor staff working with the University|
|CNDA for Vendors (357 KB)||Vendors engaged via a contract for work or service provided to the University|
|Mutual CNDA for Vendors (303 KB)||Vendors when an exchange of personal and confidential information is necessary between Queen's and the vendor as part of a negotiation, review or understanding of a service|
As articulated within the agreements, certain CNDAs require written authorization from the University in order to do some things with personal and confidential information (for example, to take such information off campus). This written authorization must be secured from the owner of the data, according to the following table:
