I was hoping to get opinions from both sides of an arrangement.
A company is contracting with a developer to build a web-based database of their customers and all information related to their customers.
The goal is to use metrics valuable to the company to cross-sell other services.
The company feels they are sharing too much of their "secret sauce" with a 3rd party and would feel more comfortable having an NDA in place.
The developer is uncomfortable signing an NDA claiming his work will be only on building the infrastructure and not related to the approach to the information developer will help surface.
Developers, how do you handle this type of request? How do you pacify the company's concern so they can open up more about the goals of their project and better educate you on how to deliver the right product.
For anyone here that's contracted an external developer, how do you address it? What can you do to ensure you're protecting the specific details of your company?
