Confidential Information does not include data or information:
Use of Confidential Information. Each party shall only use Confidential Information furnished to it hereunder in furtherance of the activities contemplated by this Agreement, and it shall not disclose the Confidential Information to any other Persons without the Disclosing Party’s express written authorization. Upon termination of the Agreement for any reason, Receiving Party shall return (or at Disclosing Party’s written request, destroy) to Disclosing Party all things and documents containing Confidential Information or Trade Secrets (including physical or electronic copies of the foregoing) in Receiving Party’s possession, whether made by Receiving Party or others, will be left with or returned to Disclosing Party. All “Confidential Information” subject to the provisions of this Section 11 must be either clearly marked as such or reasonably understood by the Receiving Party from the nature of its disclosure to be confidential.
Required Disclosures. A Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party as required to comply with binding orders of governmental entities that have jurisdiction over it or as otherwise required by law, provided that the Receiving Party (i) gives the Disclosing Party reasonable written notice to allow it to seek a protective order or other appropriate remedy (except to the extent compliance with the foregoing would cause the Receiving Party to violate a court order or other legal requirement), (ii) discloses only such information as is required by the governmental entity or otherwise required by law, and (iii) and uses its best efforts to obtain confidential treatment for any Confidential Information so disclosed.
Remedies. Receiving Party understands and agrees that Disclosing Party shall suffer irreparable harm in the event Receiving Party breaches any of its obligations pursuant to Section 11 and that monetary damages will be inadequate to compensate Disclosing Party for such breach. Receiving Party agrees that, in the event of a breach or threatened breach of Section 11, Disclosing Party, in addition to any other rights, remedies or damages available to Disclosing Party at law, shall be entitled to a temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction or permanent injunction in order to prevent or to restrain any such breach by Receiving Party, its officers, employees, agents, attorneys and representatives or by any of Receiving Party’s Affiliates and such Affiliates officers, employees, agents, attorneys and representatives, or any other Person who receives Confidential Information and/or Trade Secrets from the Receiving Party (and to cover all costs (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) in doing so).
Survival. The parties hereto covenant and agree that this Section 10 shall continue to bind Receiving Party during the term of the Agreement and (i) with respect to all Trade Secrets, at all times hereafter so long as such Trade Secrets constitute trade secrets under applicable law, and (ii) with respect to all Confidential Information, for a period of 5 years afterward.
Indemnification. Each party shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless the other, and its shareholders, members, board of directors, board of managers, officers, employees, agents and representatives (each, an “Indemnified Party”) at all times from and after the Effective Date against any liability, loss, damages (including punitive damages), claim, settlement payment, cost and expense, interest, award, judgment, diminution in value, fine, fee, and penalty, or other charge, including reasonable legal expenses, arising out of or relating to any claim by an unaffiliated third party (i) alleging that the use in accordance with this Agreement of the Software (in the case of PreApp) or the Customer Marks or Customer Data (in the case of Customer) infringes or misappropriates any copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret, right of privacy of an unaffiliated third party, or violate or contradict any law or any order of a court or administrative tribunal of such unaffiliated third party, or (ii) that arises or is alleged to have arisen solely out of the gross negligence or intentional misconduct of the indemnifying party (each a “Third Party Claim”). Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Software becomes the subject of such a claim of infringement then PreApp may, at its option: (x) procure for Customer the right to use the Software free of any liability for infringement; (y) replace or modify the Software to make it non-infringing but with reasonably comparable functionality; or (z) if PreApp determines that the previous two options are not available on a commercially reasonable basis, grant to Customer a credit for the unused portion of any prepaid access rights fees and refund any deposits paid by Customer for the affected Software. Furthermore, PreApp has no liability for, and no obligation to indemnify Customer against, any Third-Party Claim arising or alleging based in whole or in part on use of the Software other than as specified in this Agreement, or its Documentation, including use with third party hardware and software products not specifically authorized by PreApp.
Indemnification Process. The Indemnified Party shall promptly notify the indemnifying party in writing of any Third- Party Claim, stating the nature and basis of the Third-Party Claim, to the extent known. The indemnifying party shall have sole control over the defense and settlement of any Third-Party Claim, provided that, within 15 days after receipt of the above-described notice, the indemnifying party notifies the Indemnified Party of its election to so assume full control. The foregoing notwithstanding, the Indemnified Party shall be entitled to participate in the defense of such Third Party Claim and to employ counsel at its own expense to assist in the handling of such claim, except that the Indemnified Party’s legal expenses in exercising this right shall be deemed legal expenses subject to indemnification hereunder to the extent that (x) the indemnifying party fails or refuses to assume control over the defense of the Third Party Claim within the time period set forth above; (y) the Indemnified Party deems it reasonably necessary to file an answer or take similar action to prevent the entry of a default judgment, temporary restraining order, or preliminary injunction against it; or (z) representation of both parties by the same counsel would, in the opinion of that counsel, constitute a conflict of interest. The Indemnifying Party shall not settle any such Third-Party Claim without the written consent of the Indemnified Party, except for a complete settlement requiring only the payment of money damages to be paid by the Indemnifying Party.
Sole Remedy. Indemnification pursuant to this Section is the parties’ sole remedy for any third-party claim against the other party in the nature of gross negligence, intentional misconduct, intellectual property infringement, or invasion of privacy.

Non-Solicitation. Customer shall not, during and for 2 years after the termination or expiration of this Agreement, regardless of reason, hire or attempt to hire, directly or indirectly, any person who, during the previous twelve months, was an employee of PreApp unless such employee has ceased to work at PreApp for at least 6 months.

The relief offered by this paragraph is the exclusive remedy available to the Performing Party with respect to a Force Majeure Event.
Assignment. Customer shall not assign any of its rights under this Agreement, except with the prior written consent of PreApp. The preceding sentence applies to all assignments of rights, whether they are voluntary or involuntary, by merger, consolidation, dissolution, operation of law or any other manner. Any change of control transaction is deemed an assignment hereunder. Any purported assignment of rights in violation of this Section is void.
