This Agreement can be used to protect innovations and secrets from use by others. Employment nondisclosure agreements are typically used when an employee is exposed to trade secrets which must be kept confidential by the employer.
Be advised that trade secret doctrines are not federal law. Although very similar, each state has its own laws regarding trade secrets. To protect your trade secrets, it is important to show that you have treated the material as confidential (i.e., storing copies of information in secure places, locking up computer programs, labeling things "confidential", having those you work with sign nondisclosure forms, etc.), and that the information has aided your competitive position.
Also note that "ideas" are not normally protected as trade secrets. A trade secret involves some formula, method of production, patent, or process not known to the public. An idea to "develop a new doll which looks like Santa Claus with black hair" will not ordinarily be protected.
