- Confidentiality4.1 Definition. “Confidential Information” means all information disclosed (whether in oral, written, or other tangible or intangible form) by one party (the “Disclosing Party”) to the other party (the “Receiving Party”) concerning or related to this Agreement or the Disclosing Party (whether before, on or after the Effective Date) that is marked “Confidential” or “Proprietary” or with similar designation by the Disclosing Party, at the time of initial disclosure to the Receiving Party or, if the Disclosing Party makes an oral disclosure, the Disclosing Party, within 10 days of such oral disclosure, notifies the Receiving Party in writing that the information disclosed by the Disclosing Party should be treated as confidential/proprietary to the Disclosing Party. Confidential Information includes, but is not limited to, the Solutions, the components of the business plans, financial plans, know-how, customer information, strategies, and other similar information.
4.2 Obligations. The Receiving Party will maintain in confidence the Confidential Information during the term of this Agreement and for the two-year period commencing upon the effective date of termination of this Agreement, and will not use such Confidential Information except as expressly permitted in this Agreement. The Receiving Party will use the same degree of care in protecting the Confidential Information as the Receiving Party uses to protect its own confidential and proprietary information from unauthorized use or disclosure, but in no event less than reasonable care. Confidential Information will be used by the Receiving Party solely for the purpose of carrying out the Receiving Party’s obligations under this Agreement. In addition, the Receiving Party will only disclose Confidential Information to its directors, officers, employees and/or contractors who have a need to know such Confidential Information in order to perform their duties under this Agreement, and if such directors, officers, employees and/or contractors have executed a non-disclosure agreement with the Receiving Party with terms no less restrictive than the non-disclosure obligations contained in this Section 4.2. Each party agrees that the terms and conditions of this Agreement will be treated as Confidential Information of both parties and will not be disclosed to any third party; provided, however, that each party may disclose the terms and conditions of this Agreement (a) to such party’s legal counsel, accountants, banks, financing sources and their advisors, (b) in connection with the enforcement of this Agreement or rights under this Agreement, or (c) in connection with an actual or proposed merger, acquisition, or similar transaction.

Further, PointCross will be free to use, disclose, reproduce, license and otherwise distribute and exploit the Feedback provided to it as it sees fit, entirely without obligation or restriction of any kind on account of Intellectual Property Rights or otherwise.4.3 Exceptions. Confidential Information will not include information that: (a) is in or enters the public domain without breach of this Agreement through no fault of the Receiving Party; (b) the Receiving Party can reasonably demonstrate was in its possession prior to first receiving it from the Disclosing Party; (c) the Receiving Party can demonstrate was developed by the Receiving Party independently, and without use of or reference to, the Confidential Information; or (d) the Receiving Party receives from a third party without restriction on disclosure and without breach of a nondisclosure obligation. In addition, the Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information that is required to be disclosed by law or by a subpoena or order issued by a court of competent jurisdiction (each, an “Order”), but solely on the conditions that the Receiving Party: (i) gives the Disclosing Party written notice of the Order within 24 hours after receiving it; and (ii) cooperates fully with the Disclosing Party before disclosure to provide the Disclosing Party with the opportunity to interpose any objections it may have to the disclosure of the information required by the Order and seek a protective order or other appropriate relief. In the event of any dispute between the parties as to whether specific information is within one or more of the exceptions set forth in this Section 4.3, the Receiving Party will bear the burden of proof, by clear and convincing evidence, that such information is within the claimed exception(s).
4.4 Remedies. The Receiving Party acknowledges that any unauthorized disclosure of Confidential Information will result in irreparable injury to the Disclosing Party, which injury could not be adequately compensated by the payment of money damages. In addition to any other legal and equitable remedies that may be available, the Disclosing Party will be entitled to seek and obtain injunctive relief against any breach or threatened breach by the Receiving Party of the confidentiality obligations hereunder, from any court of competent jurisdiction, without being required to show any actual damage or irreparable harm, prove the inadequacy of its legal remedies, or post any bond or other security.
