### I see this agreement is hosted online. Does that mean it will change? Version 1 of this agreement will remain unchanged and hosted on [this page forever](https://commonpaper.com/standards/mutual-NDA/1.0). Over time, we will create new versions to accommodate changes to the law and additional use cases. We expect future changes to occur infrequently, and they will always be posted as a new version.
