Where can I find a Confidentiality and Non-Compete Agreement to use for my business?

Below is a Confidentiality / Non-compete Agreement that I use. You can revise this for your own needs, but it has the basics. I suggest that you have an attorney review this and other legal documents.

Best wishes,
