- Confidentiality. In connection with this Agreement, each Party (a “Disclosing Party”) has provided or may provide Confidential Information to the other Party (a “Receiving Party”). Except as set forth below, “Confidential Information” means all non-public, confidential or proprietary information of or about Disclosing Party that is received by Receiving Party which relates to Disclosing Party’s business (including without limitation, business plans, financial data, pricing information, marketing, Client information, personal information), technology (including without limitation, source code, algorithms, processes, technical data, product plans, research, software, and other confidential intellectual property), products, services, trade secrets, know-how, formulae, processes, ideas, and inventions, or other information which should be reasonably understood by Receiving Party as the confidential or proprietary information of Disclosing Party. Confidential Information includes any documents or reports created by the Receiving Party that include, summarize, or refer to Confidential Information. The terms of this Agreement are the Confidential Information of Incognia. Confidential Information will not include any information that Receiving Party can document: (i) is or becomes generally known to the public without fault of Receiving Party; (ii) was in its possession or known by it without any obligation of confidentiality prior to receipt pursuant to this Agreement; (iii) is independently developed by Receiving Party without use of or reference to the Confidential Information; or (iv) is rightfully obtained by Receiving Party from a third party without any obligation of confidentiality to Disclosing Party.
- Receiving Party’s Obligations. Confidential Information of Disclosing Party may be used by Receiving Party solely for the purposes anticipated in this Agreement and may not be used for any other purpose. Receiving Party will hold Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information in strictest confidence and may not use or disclose Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information, except as expressly permitted herein, without the prior written consent of Disclosing Party, which consent may be granted or refused in Disclosing Party’s sole discretion. Receiving Party will take all reasonable measures to protect the Confidential Information of Disclosing Party from becoming known to the public or falling into the possession of persons other than those persons authorized to have any such Confidential Information, which measures shall include the highest degree of care that Receiving Party uses to protect its own information of a similar nature, but in no event less than a reasonable degree of care. Receiving Party may disclose Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information only to its Representatives who have a legitimate “need to know,” have been advised of the obligations of confidentiality under this Agreement and are bound in writing to obligations of confidentiality no less strict than those set out in this Agreement. “Representatives” include any person acting on behalf of either Party as individual contractors, directors, legal and accounting advisors, employees, and Affiliates. An “Affiliate” is a business entity controlling, controlled by or under common control, directly or indirectly, with a Party. For purposes of defining Affiliate only, “control” means ownership of more than fifty percent (50%) of the voting stock or other voting ownership interest in an entity. Receiving Party will be liable for any breach of this Agreement by its Representatives. Nothing in this Agreement will prohibit Receiving Party from disclosing Confidential Information of Disclosing Party if legally required to do so by judicial or governmental order or in a judicial or governmental proceeding (“Required Disclosure”); provided that Receiving Party shall: (i) where permitted, give Disclosing Party reasonable notice of such Required Disclosure prior to disclosure; (ii) cooperate with Disclosing Party in the event that it elects to contest such disclosure or seek a protective order with respect thereto; and (iii) in any event only disclose the exact Confidential Information, or portion thereof, specifically requested by the Required Disclosure
- Confidentiality Period; Return of Confidential Information; Remedies. The confidentiality obligations with respect to any disclosure made on or after the Effective Date will survive and continue for a period of five (5) years after the Agreement terminates, except that the obligations with respect to Confidential Information constituting a trade secret shall survive for so long as such information remains a trade secret under applicable law. Immediately upon either the written request by Disclosing Party at any time or the termination of this Agreement, Receiving Party shall cease all use of and return to Disclosing Party all copies or extracts of Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information, in any medium, or certify, in writing by an authorized officer of Receiving Party, the destruction of the same. Receiving Party acknowledges and agrees that due to the unique nature of Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information, there can be no adequate remedy at law for any breach of its confidentiality obligations, that any such breach may allow Receiving Party or third parties to compete unfairly with Disclosing Party resulting in irreparable harm to Disclosing Party and, therefore, that upon any such breach or any threat of breach of confidentiality, Disclosing Party will be entitled to seek appropriate equitable relief in addition to whatever remedies it might have at law. Each Party agrees that monetary damages would be inadequate to compensate the other Party for any breach of confidentiality. Receiving Party will notify Disclosing Party in writing immediately upon the occurrence of any such unauthorized release or other breach of which it is aware.
