Non-disclosure agreements (NDAs) are commonly used to protect confidential information between two or more parties. Yahoo Answers was a popular community-driven question and answer website that allowed users to ask and answer questions on a variety of topics. However, in 2021, Yahoo announced that it would be shutting down Yahoo Answers. This has led to concerns about how the personal information of users on the site will be handled. In particular, some users may wonder if they signed a non-disclosure agreement when creating an account on Yahoo Answers.
It is unlikely that users of Yahoo Answers signed an NDA when they created their accounts. NDAs are typically used in commercial or business contexts, where one party shares confidential information with another party, such as a new product idea. In this situation, the receiving party agrees not to disclose the confidential information to others. However, Yahoo Answers was a public forum where users shared information and opinions with others. There was no expectation of confidentiality, and users were not sharing confidential information.
