Confidentiality. Recipient must use the same degree of care in protecting Confidential Information as it uses to protect its own proprietary and confidential materials, but in no event less than a reasonable standard of care. If a party becomes aware of any misappropriation or misuse of Confidential Information, that party must immediately advise the other in writing. If Recipient is required to disclose Confidential Information by law or legal process, Recipient must first promptly notify Discloser unless prohibited from doing so by a court or other legal authority of competent jurisdiction, and Recipient at Discloser’s expense will provide reasonable assistance to discloser in seeking a protective order or other remedy from the proper authority. Any such required disclosure shall not be a breach of this section but does not relieve recipient of its confidentiality obligations. All Confidential Information is and shall remain the property of Discloser.
Period of Protection. Recipient agrees that upon the Effective Date of this Agreement and for a period of five (5) years from the date of disclosure or termination of this Agreement, whichever is later (and in perpetuity with respect to source code and trade secrets), it will hold the Confidential Information disclosed by Discloser in confidence.

Disclosure of the Confidential Information will be restricted to the Recipient’s employees, contractors, or agents on a “need to know” basis and who are bound by confidentiality obligations no less stringent than these prior to any disclosure. All Confidential Information that is disclosed in a tangible form by Discloser to Recipient under this Agreement (including, without limitation, documents, writings, designs, drawings, specifications and information incorporated in computer software or held in electronic storage media) shall be returned to Discloser or destroyed promptly upon the termination of this Agreement or upon written request by Discloser, and shall not thereafter be retained in any form by Recipient, except as otherwise provided by this Agreement. Upon request of the Discloser, a duly authorized officer of the Recipient will certify such return or destruction.
Exclusions. Confidential Information does not include information which: (a) is already known to the Recipient at the time of disclosure; (b) is or becomes publicly known through no wrongful act or failure of the Recipient; (c) is independently developed without use or benefit of the other’s Confidential Information; or (d) is received from a third party that is not under and does not thereby breach an obligation of confidentiality.
