8.1 Nondisclosure of Confidential Information. The Receiving Party will use the same efforts to protect the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information from loss or alteration, and unauthorized access, use or disclosure, that it uses to protect its own confidential information of similar sensitivity, but in no event will such efforts be less than reasonable efforts. The Receiving Party may only use the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information to perform its obligations and exercise its rights under this Agreement. The Receiving Party will not disclose or provide access to the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information to any third party except: (a) for disclosures to the Receiving Party’s: (i) employees with a need to know such information to perform its obligations under the Agreement and to subcontractors permitted under Section 12.4; or (ii) professional advisors or potential investors or acquirers (each in (i) and (ii), a “Permitted Recipient”); and (b) the Receiving Party may disclose the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information if it is compelled by Applicable Law to do so; provided the Receiving Party gives the Disclosing Party prior written notice of such compelled disclosure (to the extent legally permitted) and reasonable assistance, at the Disclosing Party’s cost, if the Disclosing Party wishes to contest the disclosure. The Receiving Party shall not, except as otherwise expressly authorized by the Disclosing Party, make any copies or duplications of any of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information. Any materials or documents that have been furnished by the Disclosing Party to the Receiving Party in connection with conducting its business pursuant to this Agreement, together with all copies of such materials or documents, shall be promptly returned or destroyed by the Receiving Party within ten (10) days after either (A) the termination of this Agreement or (B) the Disclosing Party requesting such return or destruction; provided, however, that Receiving Party may retain copies of such materials or documents that are stored on the Receiving Party’s IT backup and disaster recovery systems until the ordinary course deletion thereof. The Receiving Party will be liable for any breach of this Agreement by its Permitted Recipients.
8.2 Notice Requirements. The Receiving Party will promptly inform the Disclosing Party in writing of any actual or suspected loss or alteration of, or unauthorized access to, use or disclosure of, Confidential Information. In the event that the Receiving Party or any person to whom the Receiving Party or its representatives transmit or have transmitted Confidential Information become legally compelled (by oral questions, interrogatories, requests for information or documents, subpoenas, civil investigative demands or otherwise) to disclose any such Confidential Information, the Receiving Party shall provide the Disclosing Party with prompt written notice so that the Disclosing Party may seek a protective order or other appropriate remedy, or both, or waive compliance with the provisions of this Agreement. In the event that the Disclosing Party is unable to obtain a protective order or other appropriate remedy, or if it so directs the Receiving Party, the Receiving Party shall furnish only that portion of the Confidential Information that the Receiving Party is advised by written opinion of its counsel is legally required to be furnished by it and shall exercise its reasonable best efforts to obtain reliable assurance that confidential treatment shall be accorded such Confidential Information.
