Hi!

I have just received a message from a Czech agency telling me to send them back some stuff for a future collaboration with them.

I have to send them a form (wich is normal) and the confidentiallity ageement. I have not even been assigned a project and I am asked to send them the agreement...

I do not know if it is normal, before sending them back, I wanted other points of view.

Thanks a lot!

Why not? Sep 29, 2003

Hi Rocío

I have already done that.
It would be strange to wait and see the document to decide whether you're going to sign or not.

It's quite common for agencies to have you sign a general confidentiality agreement before you start working with them. Nothing suspicious about it.

Kind regards,
P.

Quite usual, I think... Sep 29, 2003

Hello Rocío,

From my own experience this is normal and quite common. Some agencies ask to have that agreement before they have any project to be assigned to you. I don't know if there is anything wrong with this, though...

Just wait for a few more opinions...

Best regards,
Mónica
