NDA for Private Engagements

Customers may require you to sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) or other legal documents to participate in their private engagement. An NDA is a legal contract that creates a confidential relationship between you and the customer to further secure sensitive information and findings. A confidential relationship means one or both parties has a duty not to share any information as outlined in the NDA.

After receiving an invitation, you will need to sign the document before you are able to access and review the engagement brief. We identify engagements with this requirement on their invitation teaser as shown below.


After you have accepted the invitation, if the engagement requires you to sign an NDA, then the Compliance required section is displayed.


To sign the NDA for an engagement:

  1. In the Compliance required message, click Sign compliance document.


  2. Check the box I agree to use electronic records and signatures and then click CONTINUE.


  3. Read through the document or click START.


  4. When you reach the end of the document, click Sign.


    The Adopt Your Signature window is displayed.

  5. Provide your Full Name and Initials, and select a style for your signature.


  6. Click ADOPT AND SIGN.


    The signature is applied to the document. When you hover on the signature, the Required - Signature Applied message is displayed.


  7. Click FINISH.


    The Signed document message is displayed.


  8. After Bugcrowd approves, you will receive an e-mail notification.


    You can now view the engagement details and submit a report.


    In case your signature is not valid, then you will receive the Re-sign notification. Resign the document. After Bugcrowd approves, you can continue to participate in the engagement.
