3.1 Scope and Restrictions. "Confidential Information" means all information of a party ("Disclosing party") disclosed to the other party ("Receiving party") that is designated in writing or identified as confidential at the time of disclosure or should be reasonably known by the Receiving party to be confidential due to the nature of the information disclosed and the circumstances surrounding the disclosure. The Receiving party will: (i) not use the Disclosing party’s Confidential Information for any purpose outside of this Agreement; (ii) not disclose such Confidential Information to any person or entity, other than its (a) employees, consultants, agents and professional advisers who have a “need to know” for the Receiving party to exercise its rights or perform its obligations hereunder, provided that such employees, consultants and agents are bound by agreements or, in the case of professional advisers, ethical duties respecting such Confidential Information in accordance with the terms of this Section 3; and (iii) use commercially reasonable measures to protect the confidentiality of such Confidential Information using the same degree of care used to protect its own confidential or proprietary information of like importance. If the Receiving party is required by applicable law or court order to make any disclosure of such Confidential Information, it will first give written notice of such requirement to the Disclosing party, and, to the extent within its control, permit the Disclosing party to intervene in any relevant proceedings to protect its interests in its Confidential Information, and provide full cooperation to the Disclosing party in seeking to obtain such protection. Further, this Section 3 will not apply to information which the Receiving party can document: (i) was rightfully in its possession or known to it prior to receipt; (ii) is or has become public knowledge or publicly available through no fault of the Receiving party; (iii) is rightfully obtained by the Receiving party from a third party without breach of any confidentiality obligation; or (iv) is independently developed by employees of the Receiving party who had no access to such information.
3.2 Equitable Relief. The Receiving party acknowledges that unauthorized disclosure of Confidential Information could cause substantial harm to the Disclosing party for which damages alone might not be a sufficient remedy and, therefore, that upon any such disclosure by the Receiving party the Disclosing party will be entitled to seek appropriate equitable relief in addition to whatever other remedies it might have at law or equity

7.3 Indemnification Requirements. In connection with any claim for indemnification under this Section 7, the indemnified party must promptly provide the indemnifying party with notice of any claim that the indemnified party believes is within the scope of the obligation to indemnify, provided, however, that the failure to provide such notice shall not relieve the indemnifying party of its obligations under this Section 7, except to the extent that such failure materially prejudices the indemnifying party’s defense of such claim.
