NDA and contractor agreement definitions

NDA stands for Non-Disclosure Agreement and implies that the parties signing the contract will not disclose any confidential information obtained from the contractual relationship. Lano NDAs are compliant with labor laws and available in English and German.

Under the Contractor Agreement, the client is obliged to pay the independent contractor for performing certain services. At Lano, we currently offer English and German versions of the Contractor Agreement (or Dienstleistungsvereinbarung) based on the German labor law and an English sample contract that complies with standard labor laws.

Personalizing sample contracts

In case you need to add certain points to the contract, modifications are possible by duplicating a sample contract.

Step 1: Select Settings > My Network in the menu.

Step 2: Click on Contracts to see a list of sample contracts. Use the duplication option on the right side to edit the contract.

Step 3: From there, you will be able to apply modifications to the contract, delete or add the necessary clauses or change the variables.

Step 4: Click on "create" in the bottom left corner to validate the changes and save the contract template.
