From time to time during the Subscription Period, either Party may disclose or make available to the other Party information about its business affairs, products, confidential intellectual property, trade secrets, third-party confidential information, and other sensitive or proprietary information, whether orally or in written, electronic or other form or media, and] whether or not marked, designated or otherwise identified as “confidential” (collectively, “Confidential Information”). Confidential Information does not include information that, at the time of disclosure is: (a) in the public domain; (b) known to the receiving Party at the time of disclosure; (c) rightfully obtained by the receiving Party on a non-confidential basis from a third party; (d) independently developed by the receiving Party; or (e) required to be disclosed under applicable federal, state or local law, regulation or a valid order issued by a court or governmental agency of competent jurisdiction. The receiving Party shall not disclose the disclosing Party’s Confidential Information to any person or entity, except to the receiving Party’s employees who have a need to know the Confidential Information for the receiving Party to exercise its rights or perform its obligations hereunder. On the expiration or termination of the Agreement, the receiving Party shall promptly return to the disclosing Party all copies, whether in written, electronic, or other form or media, of the disclosing Party’s Confidential Information, or destroy all such copies and certify in writing to the disclosing Party that such Confidential Information has been destroyed. Each Party’s obligations of non-disclosure with regard to Confidential Information are effective as of the Effective Date and will expire five (5) years from the date first disclosed to the receiving Party; provided, however, with respect to any Confidential Information that constitutes a trade secret (as determined under applicable law), such obligations of non-disclosure will survive the termination or expiration of this Agreement for as long as such Confidential Information remains subject to trade secret protection under applicable law. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the receiving Party is required to disclose the disclosing Party’s Confidential Information pursuant to a duly authorized subpoena, court order or other government authority, the receiving Party will provide prompt written notice to the disclosing Party prior to such disclosure so that the disclosing Party may seek a protective order or other appropriate remedy. The Parties agree that the disclosing Party would be irreparably injured by a breach or threatened breach of this Agreement by the receiving Party and that the disclosing Party would not have an adequate remedy at law. Therefore, in the event of a breach or threatened breach by the receiving Party of this Section 3, the disclosing Party shall be entitled, in addition to any and all other remedies, to seek injunctive relief and specific performance. The receiving Party further agrees not to resist such application for relief on the basis that the disclosing Party has an adequate remedy at law and agrees to waive any requirement for the securing or posting of any bond in connection with such remedy.
4. AUTHORIZED USERS
On or as soon as reasonably practicable after the Effective Date, Nucleus Cyber will provide Customer the applicable Nucleus Cyber Software to allow Customer’s Authorized Users to use and access the Nucleus Cyber Software. Customer agrees to limit the access to and use of the Nucleus Cyber Software to the maximum number of Authorized Users included in its subscription for Nucleus Cyber Software, and to ensure that all Authorized Users safeguard any usernames and passwords (“Credentials”) provided to them to use and access the Nucleus Cyber Software. Customer agrees that it is responsible for all acts and omissions of Authorized Users and any activities conducted using their Credentials. Customer will notify Nucleus Cyber promptly if it learns of any unauthorized use of any Credentials or any other known or suspected breach of security related to the Nucleus Cyber Software. Customer is responsible for all activities that occur under its Authorized Users’ accounts, for Authorized Users’ compliance with the terms of this Agreement, and for all acts or omissions of such Authorized Users. Customer and its Authorized Users will be fully and completely responsible for all changes to and deletions of Customer Data logged or maintained within the Nucleus Cyber Software, as well as for the security of all Credentials required to use and access the Nucleus Cyber Software.
5. FEES, PAYMENT AND SUSPENSION OF SERVICES
