  1. As used herein, “Confidential Information” shall mean any and all technical and non-technical information provided by either party to the other, including but not limited to (a) financial information, business plans, procurement requirements, information regarding purchasing, manufacturing, customer lists, investors, employees, business and contractual relationships, business forecasts, sales and merchandising, or marketing plans, (b) trade secrets, (c) patent and patent applications and information, and (d) other proprietary information relative to the disclosing party’s business, including without limitation, ideas, samples, media, techniques, sketches, drawings, works of authorship, models, inventions, know-how, processes, apparatuses, equipment, algorithms, software programs, software source documents, and formulae related to the current, future, and proposed products and services of each of the parties, and including, without limitation, their respective information concerning research, experimental work, development, design details and specifications, engineering and information the disclosing party provides regarding third parties.

  2. Each party agrees that at all times and notwithstanding any termination or expiration of this Agreement it will hold in strict confidence and not disclose to any third party Confidential Information of the other, except as approved in writing by the other party to this Agreement, and will use the Confidential Information for no purpose other than evaluating or pursuing a business relationship with the other party to this Agreement.  Each party shall only permit access to Confidential Information of the other party to those of its employees or authorized representatives having a need to know and shall be responsible for any breach by such party’s employees or authorized representatives.

  3. Each party shall immediately notify the other upon discovery of any loss or unauthorized disclosure of the Confidential Information of the other party.

  4. Each party’s obligations under this Agreement with respect to any portion of the other party’s Confidential Information shall terminate when the party to whom Confidential Information was disclosed (the “Recipient”) can document that: (a) it was in the public domain at the time it was communicated to the Recipient by the other party; (b) it entered the public domain subsequent to the time it was communicated to the Recipient by the other party through no fault of the Recipient; (c) it was in the Recipient’s possession free of any obligation of confidence at the time it was communicated to the Recipient by the other party; (d) it was rightfully communicated to the Recipient free of any obligation of confidence (whether contractual, fiduciary or other relationship) subsequent to the time it was communicated to the Recipient by the other party; (e) it was developed by employees or agents of the Recipient independently of and without reference to any information communicated to the Recipient by the other party; (f) it was communicated by the other party to an unaffiliated third party free of any obligation of confidence; or (g) the communication was in response to a valid order by a court or other governmental body, was otherwise required by subpoena, law or rules of an applicable stock exchange, or was necessary to establish the rights of either party under this Agreement and such disclosure complies with the requirements set forth below.  If the Recipient or any of the Recipient’s representatives is required to disclose any of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information pursuant to (g) above, the Recipient will, as soon as reasonably practicable, provide the disclosing party with written notice of the applicable subpoena, law, or rule so that the disclosing party may seek a protective order or other appropriate remedy.  The Recipient and its representatives will cooperate fully with the disclosing party to obtain any such protective order or other remedy.  If the disclosing party elects not to seek, or is unsuccessful in obtaining, any such protective order or other remedy in connection with any requirement that the Recipient disclose Confidential Information, and if the Recipient furnishes the disclosing party with a written opinion of reputable legal counsel confirming that the disclosure of Confidential Information is required pursuant to applicable subpoena, law or rule, then the Recipient may disclose such Confidential Information to the extent required; provided, however, that the Recipient and its representatives will use their best efforts to ensure that such Confidential Information is treated confidentially by each person or entity to whom it is disclosed.

  5. Upon termination or expiration of the Agreement, or upon written request of the other party, each party shall promptly return to the other all documents and other tangible materials representing the other’s Confidential Information and all copies thereof.

The parties recognize and agree that nothing contained in this Agreement shall be construed as granting any property rights, by license or otherwise, to any Confidential Information of the other party disclosed pursuant to this Agreement, or to any invention or any patent, copyright, trademark, or other intellectual property right that has issued or that may issue, based on such Confidential Information.  Neither party shall make, have made, use or sell for any purpose any product or other item using, incorporating or derived from any Confidential Information of the other party.

  7. Confidential Information shall not be reproduced in any form except as required to accomplish the intent of this Agreement.  Any reproduction of any Confidential Information of the other party by either party shall remain the property of the disclosing party and shall contain any and all confidential or proprietary notices or legends, which appear on the original, unless otherwise authorized in writing by the other party.

  8. This Agreement shall terminate three (3) years after the Effective Date, or may be terminated by either party at any time upon thirty (30) days written notice to the other party.
