8.1. Definition. During the course of our relationship and your use of the Service, each party (a “Disclosing Party”) may provide the other party (a “Receiving Party”) with confidential and/or proprietary materials and information (“Confidential Information”). All materials and information provided by Disclosing Party to Receiving Party and identified at the time of disclosure as “Confidential” or bearing a similar legend shall be considered Confidential Information. Confidential Information will not include information: (i) previously known to the Receiving Party without an obligation of confidentiality; (ii) independently developed by or for the Receiving Party or the Receiving Party’s employees, consultants, or agents without reference to or use of Confidential Information; (iii) lawfully acquired by the Receiving Party from a third party who is not under an obligation of confidentiality with respect to such information; or (iv) which is or becomes publicly available through no fault of the Receiving Party or not as a result of a breach of these Terms. 8.2. Protection of Confidential Information. The Receiving Party will hold the Confidential Information in strict confidence and will take reasonable care, but in no instance less than the degree of care it uses to protect and maintain its own information that it considers to be confidential, to assure that Confidential Information will not be disclosed to others, in whole or in part, except as otherwise provided herein. The Disclosing Party retains all ownership rights in and to its Confidential Information (regardless of the form in which it is disclosed) and all intellectual property rights associated with such Confidential Information. The Receiving Party will not use, disclose, duplicate, or distribute any Confidential Information except as necessary to perform its obligations under these Terms. Further, with respect to any such necessary disclosure or distribution, the Receiving Party will limit such disclosure or distribution to those of its employees, officers, agents, and contractors who have a need to know the Confidential Information for purposes of the Receiving Party’s performance of its obligations, and the Receiving Party will limit such disclosure or distribution so as to only disclose or distribute those applicable portions of the Confidential Information that such employee, officer, agent, or contractor needs to know. To the extent that the Receiving Party determines that it needs to disclose or distribute any Confidential Information to a third party (i.e., someone other than an employee, officer, agent, or contractor) to perform its obligations under these Terms, the Receiving Party will obtain from said third party their prior written agreement to comply with the terms of this section, and will not disclose any Confidential Information prior to doing so.
8.3. Compelled Disclosure. If the Receiving Party is compelled by law to disclose Confidential Information, it will provide the Disclosing Party prompt written notice of such disclosure (to the extent legally permitted) and, at Disclosing Party’s cost, any reasonable assistance the Disclosing Party requests to contest or limit the disclosure.
8.4. Disposition of Confidential Information. Upon termination of the Service, the ReceivingParty will, unless otherwise provided herein, (i) return all Confidential Information to the Disclosing Party or, if requested by the Disclosing Party, (ii) destroy all Confidential Information and certify to such destruction. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Receiving Party may retain such Confidential Information that it, in its reasonable judgment, determines it is required to retain for legal and/or compliance purposes; however, the Receiving Party’s obligations under these Terms related to Confidential Information will continue for so long as the Receiving Party retains such Confidential Information.

10.3. Indemnification Procedure. The party seeking indemnification (the “Indemnified Party”) will give prompt written notice to the party from whom indemnification is sought (the “Indemnifying Party”) of any claim for which indemnification is sought under these Terms. Failure to give such notice will not relieve the Indemnifying Party of its obligation to provide indemnification except to the extent that such failure materially adversely affects the ability of the Indemnifying Party to defend the applicable claim. The Indemnifying Party may elect to assume the defense and control of any such claim at its own cost and expense and the Indemnified Party will have the right to be represented by its own counsel at its own cost in such matters. The Indemnifying Party will use counsel reasonably acceptable to the Indemnified Party. Neither the Indemnifying Party, nor the Indemnified Party, will settle or dispose of any such matter in any manner that would adversely affect the rights or interests of the other party, including the payment of money, without the prior written consent of the other party, which will not be unreasonably withheld or delayed. Each party will reasonably cooperate with the other party and its counsel in the course of defense of any claim, such cooperation including, without limitation, providing documents, information, and/or witnesses.
