Confidentiality agreement for signature by volunteers, interns, etc


Now here’s something useful.  We were asked for a model confidentiality agreement which could be used for interns, volunteers etc working for a period in a Member’s office.

We suggest the following wording but, obviously, you can customise it to suit your own needs:

Confidentiality agreement for signature by volunteers, interns, agency and contract staff etc

I undertake to preserve the confidentiality of any information which may be acquired by me in the course of my activities supporting the office of _____________________ MP. I understand that while supporting the Members’ office I may have access to personal information about others. I undertake to act only on the instructions of the Member when handling this information, and to observe the data protection principles as set out in the Data Protection Act 2018.

I undertake not to publish or otherwise disclose any such information to any third party, or to use it for any purpose, unless authorised by the Member. I expressly acknowledge that these undertakings will continue to have effect after my activities in the Member’s office have ceased.
