Hi Vikas,

 

The Upwork Terms of Service contain default non-disclosure terms which many clients consider sufficient for this purpose. It is acceptable for you as a client to request that a freelancer sign an external non-disclosure agreement (NDA) which can be included as one of the job terms on the platform. 

I can suggest you consult with a local specialist regarding your questions about signing the NDA.

 

Thank you.

Hi Eva,

 

You can refer to our Optional Service Contract Terms more specifically, Section 6. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS.

If you were interested in something else or you have additional questions, let me know. Thank you.

Hi!

 

I have the same concern regarding this. My client asked me to fill out the NDA and on that NDA, they ask for my id card number and passport number. Can I give this to the client before we start the contract?

Axel: What you said here does not make sense.

 

Real NDAs do not ask for ID card numbers or passwords.

 

What ID card are they asking for? (They should not be asking for any.)

 

Password to what? Of course a real NDA doesn't ask for a password. But I am curious about what they are asking for. People use dozens of different usernames and passwords.

She likely means passport?

Yes, Petra. It's the passport. I am sorry for the typographical error.

I sign NDAs all the time with my full legal name and location but no other identification.  I tell the client that once the contract is in place, I will provide the other information needed for the NDA.  Hasn't been a problem yet..
