Nondisclosure Agreements Nondisclosure agreements are one of the best ways to protect trade secrets -- valuable confidential information that businesses want to keep under wraps. That information could be a sales plan, a list of customers, a manufacturing process or a formula for a soft drink. By using a nondisclosure agreement, you can ensure that your secrets stay secret -- or have legal recourse if they are misused or disclosed to the wrong parties. A nondisclosure agreement -- also called an NDA or a confidentiality agreement -- is a contract in which the parties promise to protect the confidentiality of secret information that is disclosed during employment or another type of business transaction.

The color white: If all light waves are reflected from a surface the surface will appear to be white. The color black: Similarly, when all light waves are absorbed by a surface the surface will appear to be black. Now that we know what color is, let's talk about colors specifically. The primary colors on the color wheel are blue, yellow, and red. The secondary colors are those you can make using two primary colors. Those numbered 1 in the above picture are the primary, 2 the secondary, and 3 the tertiary colors. Hot or Cold?
