If you have been asked to sign a nondisclosure or confidentiality agreement, you should contact the Office of the General Counsel. However, you should contact the Office of Sponsored Projects and Research Compliance if the nondisclosure agreement is in connection with Rice research. For nondisclosure agreements relating to a Rice invention, you should contact the Office of Technology Transfer. For nondisclosure agreements for personal matters unrelated to your University work, you should contact your personal attorney. One should be sure, however, that any such confidentiality agreements do not conflict with one’s University’s responsibilities.
