4. Confidential Information.
4.1 In the course of the parties’ dealings, the parties may exchange “Confidential Information,” defined as any and all information that is disclosed by either party, either directly or indirectly, in writing, orally or by inspection of tangible objects, such as trade secrets, or non-public or proprietary information or materials provided by the disclosing party (“Discloser”), that is designated in writing as confidential, or that ought to be considered confidential by the receiving party (“Recipient”) based on the nature of the information or materials and the circumstances of disclosure. For three (3) years from the date of disclosure of the relevant Confidential Information: (a) the Recipient will not use the Discloser’s Confidential Information other than in furtherance of the relationship in accordance with these Terms; and (b) the Recipient will not disclose the Discloser’s Confidential Information except to the Recipient’s employees, contractors, directors, shareholders and legal and financial advisers who have a reasonable “need to know” and are bound by reasonable confidentiality obligations comparable to those herein; provided, however, that Recipient’s confidentiality obligations regarding trade secrets shall be perpetual. The foregoing obligations will not restrict either party from disclosing Confidential Information of the other party: (a) pursuant to the order or requirement of a court, administrative agency, or other governmental body, provided that, to the extent legally permitted, the party required to make such a disclosure gives reasonable notice to the other party to contest such order or requirement or (b) on an as-needed, confidential basis to its legal or financial advisors. In addition, each party may only disclose the terms and conditions of this Agreement: (a) as required under applicable securities regulations and (b) on a confidential basis to current or prospective investors in or acquirers of such party. The Recipient will take the same precautions to safeguard the Discloser’s Confidential Information as for its own Confidential Information, but not less than reasonable measures. Each party retains exclusive ownership of its own Confidential Information.
4.2 The confidentiality restrictions of this section shall not apply to information that: (a) was independently developed without any use of the Confidential Information of the Discloser as established by written evidence; or (b) was in the public domain at the time it was disclosed or enters the public domain through no act or omission of the Recipient.
4.3 Upon termination of this Agreement, or upon written request by the Discloser, the Recipient shall: (a) cease using the Confidential Information, (b) return or destroy the Confidential Information and all copies, notes or extracts thereof to Discloser and (c) upon request of Discloser, confirm in writing that Recipient has complied with these obligations.
