Confidentiality

For purposes of this clause, the term “Confidential Information” means non-public information that a party designates as being confidential or which, under the circumstances surrounding disclosure, reasonably ought to be treated as confidential, including without limitation, the terms of this Agreement, a party’s finances, Advertiser records and contact information, employee lists, Client Data, information contained within the Client Insertion Order, information about FortifyIQ or FortifyIQ Services, and business, strategic development and marketing plans. Confidential Information will not include: (i) information that was previously known, without obligation of confidentiality, by the receiving party, prior to any disclosure from the other party; (ii) information that is or otherwise becomes available in the general public through no breach of this Agreement by the receiving party; (iii) information that was received without restriction from any person or entity that the receiving party reasonably believes is not in violation of any duty of non-disclosure on the part of such person or entity; or (iv) information that the receiving party developed independently of any disclosures of such information by the disclosing party. Client may not disclose any Confidential Information to any third party except its employees. FortifyIQ may disclose Confidential Information to its employees, agents and/or independent contractors to whom disclosure is reasonably required provided that such individuals and entities have agreed to keep such information confidential in the same or a substantially similar manner as provided for in this Agreement. Neither party will use any Confidential Information except as expressly permitted by, and as required to achieve the purposes of, this Agreement. Each party will take reasonable security precautions, at least as great as the precautions it takes to protect its own confidential information of a similar nature, to keep confidential the Confidential Information. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, a party may disclose Confidential Information in accordance with a judicial or other governmental order or as may be required by applicable law; provided, however, that a party so disclosing Confidential Information (the “Disclosing Party”) will give the other party (the “Protected Party”) as much advance notice as reasonably possible of any such disclosure so that the Protected Party may seek a protective order or other remedy. The Disclosing Party will comply with any protective order or equivalent relating to the Confidential Information. If there is no protective order, the Disclosing Party will use its reasonable best efforts to ensure that only the minimum portion of the Confidential Information necessary to comply with the law or order is disclosed. The parties agree that monetary damages for breach of confidentiality under this section will not be adequate and the non-breaching party shall be further entitled to injunctive relief. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, this Confidentiality provision shall survive the termination of this Agreement and shall be duly enforceable for a period no less than ten (10) years from the date of such termination of the Agreement.

Assignability
