In order for you to have access to confidential information about Uplift Dawah or any Uplift Dawah partners, and in order to become an Uplift Dawah NDA Volunteer, you must acknowledge your understanding and agreement with the conditions in this confidentiality agreement (also referred to as a non-disclosure agreement, “NDA”). This NDA forms a legal agreement between you and Uplift Dawah.
Uplift Dawah as a non-profit is committed to being as transparent as possible. Sometimes, however, certain information is not intended to be public and is to be treated as confidential (“Confidential Information”). During the course of your volunteering, you may receive Confidential Information as part of your activities for Uplift Dawah (“Activities”). The purpose of this NDA is to explain what information is considered Confidential Information, your obligations with respect to Confidential Information, and whom you should contact if you have questions or suspect a leak of Confidential Information.
2 How do you know if information is Confidential Information?
You’ll know information is Confidential Information if:
- a) The person disclosing the information tells you that the information is confidential;
- b)There is a notation on the email, document or material to indicate that the information is confidential; or
- c) The information is not public and made available in an internal Uplift Dawah meeting to which you are invited, or is made available to you through a permission-required or password-required online document, intranet, or other form of access restriction.
Some examples of Uplift Dawah Confidential Information include:
- Unannounced marketing and communications materials related to Uplift Dawah campaigns (including partners, dates and plans);
- Non-public source code or assets;
- Metrics and dashboards on performance that are labeled confidential or access restricted;
- Data related to Uplift Dawah Board Members, volunteers, staff, contractors, vendors, partners (including contact information, profile information, server logs, etc.); and

If you’re unsure if information is Confidential Information, ask the person who you received the information from before sharing or acting on the information. You can always email [email protected] if you are unsure.

You will not publicly disclose or share the Confidential Information with any other persons, except with other Uplift Dawah Board of Directors, staff, contractors, or volunteers under a NDA with Uplift Dawah as noted below.

4. When do your obligations end?
Your obligations continue for as long as the information remains confidential, even if this NDA ends. Only when the information is publicly announced or made publicly available by Uplift Dawah (or its partners) is the information no longer considered Confidential Information. If you’re unsure, ask the persons who provided you with the Confidential Information or email [email protected]
5. When does this NDA end?
This NDA lasts for two years from the date of your acceptance of this NDA. After two years, you may receive a notification to renew this NDA. Renewal would be appropriate if, at the time of renewal, you meet the following criteria: (a) you are still an active volunteer and (b) you may have access to Confidential Information as part of your Activities. If the NDA ends and is not renewed, you will be removed from certain channels of communication in which Confidential Information is shared (for example, monthly organization meetings on Zoom or certain email distribution lists). If, for any reason, you have continued access to Confidential Information, you remain under an obligation to keep such information confidential. If you receive Confidential Information after the expiration of this NDA, you will notify the person disclosing the information that you should not have received the information.
