5. CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION
(a) As used herein, “Confidential Information” shall mean information revealed by or through a Party (the “Disclosing Party”) to the other Party (the “Receiving Party”) that is (i) proprietary information, (ii) information marked or designated as confidential, (iii) information otherwise disclosed in a manner consistent with its confidential nature, (iv) information of one Party, whether or not in written form and whether or not designated as confidential, that is known or should reasonably be known by the other Party as being treated as confidential, or (v) information submitted by one Party to the second Party where the second Party knows or reasonably should know that the first Party is obligated to keep the information confidential. For the avoidance of doubt, the portfolio holdings information of Client and its subsidiary funds is Confidential Information of Client, and the Services and information generated thereby is Confidential Information of Company. The term “Confidential Information” does not include information which: (a) is or becomes generally available to the public other than as a result of disclosure by the Receiving Party (or any person to whom the Receiving Party disclosed such information); (b) was lawfully known by the Receiving Party prior to its disclosure by the Disclosing Party without an obligation of confidentiality; (c) was independently developed by Receiving Party without use of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information; or (d) becomes available to the Receiving Party on a non-confidential basis from a source other than the Disclosing Party, provided that such source is not bound by a confidentiality agreement, confidentiality obligation or fiduciary duty which prohibits disclosure and the Receiving Party has no reason to believe that such source may be restricted from making such disclosure. Notwithstanding the other provisions of this Agreement, Client acknowledges and agrees that Company may use, aggregate, compile into databases, and distribute Client’s Confidential Information in a manner that does not reveal the specific holdings or positions of a particular Client and does not identify Client for any purpose whatsoever, including, without limitation, for use in indexes, reports, predictive models, and benchmark/normative databases.
(b) At all times the Receiving Party shall protect and preserve the Confidential Information as confidential, using no less care than that with which it protects and preserves its own highly confidential and proprietary information (but in no event less than a reasonable degree of care), and shall not use the Confidential Information for any purpose other than necessary to carry out its obligations under this Agreement (the “Limited Purpose”). The Receiving Party shall not disclose, distribute or disseminate the Confidential Information to any third party without the prior written consent of the Disclosing Party; provided, however, Company may disclose Client’s Confidential Information to Company’s affiliates as necessary to provide the Services. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Receiving Party may disclose the Confidential Information to its consultants and agents (“Representatives”) who strictly need to know such information for providing services in connection with this Agreement, so long as such Representatives (i) are informed by Receiving Party of the confidential nature of the Confidential Information, (ii) agree to keep the Confidential Information strictly confidential, and (iii) agree to be bound by the terms of this Section 5 to the same extent as if they were parties hereto or are bound to like obligations of confidentiality. Receiving Party shall be responsible for any breach or threatened breach of this Section 5 by any of its Representatives (it being understood that such responsibility shall be in addition to and not by way of limitation of any right or remedy Disclosing Party may have against the Representatives with respect to such breach) and Receiving Party agrees, at its sole expense, to take all necessary measures (including court proceedings) to restrain its Representatives from prohibited or unauthorized disclosure or use of the Confidential Information. In the event the Receiving Party becomes or may become legally compelled to disclose any Confidential Information (whether by deposition, interrogatory, request for documents, subpoena, civil investigative demand or other process or otherwise), to the extent not prohibited by law, the Receiving Party shall provide to the Disclosing Party prompt prior written notice of such requirement so that the Disclosing Party may seek a protective order or other appropriate remedy and/or waive compliance with the terms of this Agreement. In the event that such protective order or other remedy is not obtained, or that the Disclosing Party waives compliance with the provisions hereof, the Receiving Party shall furnish only that portion of the Confidential Information which it is advised by counsel is legally required to be disclosed, and shall use its best efforts to ensure that confidential treatment shall be afforded such disclosed portion of the Confidential Information.
(c) Promptly following the request of the Disclosing Party, the Receiving Party shall return to the Disclosing Party, or, at the Disclosing Party’s option, destroy all materials that are in written, electronic or other tangible form (including, without limitation, all written or printed documents, notes, memoranda, email, computer disks or tapes (whether machine or user readable), or computer memory, whether or not prepared by Receiving Party) that contain, summarize or abstract any portion of the Confidential Information, including, without limitation, all copies, extracts and derivations of such materials. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing requires the alteration, modification, deletion or destruction of backup tapes or other backup media made in the ordinary course of business; provided the Receiving Party continues to comply with the obligations contained in this Section 5 for so long as the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party is retained.
(d) The Receiving Party acknowledges that in the event of a breach of this Section 5 by the Receiving Party, substantial injury could result to the Disclosing Party and money damages shall not be a sufficient remedy for such breach. Therefore, in the event that the Receiving Party engages in, or threatens to engage in any act which violates any provision of this Agreement, the Disclosing Party shall be entitled, in addition to all other remedies which may be available to it under law, to seek injunctive relief (including, without limitation, temporary restraining orders, or preliminary or permanent injunctions) and specific enforcement of the terms of this Agreement without proof of actual damages. The Disclosing Party shall not be required to post a bond or other security in connection with the granting of any such relief.
(e) Company reserves the right to use Client attributes including; name, location, logo, investment strategy, institution type (“Client Attributes”) in both verbal and written marketing efforts, including Company's Website. Client agrees to: (i) Company publishing a press release containing Client Attributes that memorializes the beginning of working relationship between the Client and Company (Client retains final approval of language and text proposed by Company); (ii) If called upon, serve as a reference for prospective clients seeking to do business with Company.
(a) Company will indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Client from and against any and all costs, liabilities, losses, and expenses (collectively “Losses”) resulting from any claim, suit, action, or proceeding brought by a third party (collectively “Third Party Claims”) arising from or relating to (i) the infringement or misappropriation of any third party copyright or trade secret by the permitted exercise of Client’s rights under this Agreement or (ii) Client Supplied Data or instructions provided by or on behalf of Client or Client affiliates; provided that such indemnity shall not apply if the Third Party Claim arises from Client’s (i) negligence or willful misconduct, (ii) misuse of the Services, (iii) alteration of the Services, (iv) use of the Services in combination with unauthorized apparatus, hardware, software or services, (v) use of the Services in violation of this Agreement or any applicable law, or (vi) use the Services for which the Services were not designed. This indemnity is the sole obligation of Company, and the exclusive remedy of Client, with regard to any claim of infringement in connection with the Services.
(b) Client agrees to give Company prompt written notice of any Third Party Claim for which Client seeks indemnification; provided, however, any failure by Client to provide such notice shall not relieve Company of its indemnification obligations under this Section 6 except to the extent Company can demonstrate actual prejudice as a result of such failure. Company shall conduct the defense of the claim, provided that Company shall not enter into any settlement or make any admission of liability on the part of Client without the Client’s prior written consent. Client may participate in such defense with its own counsel, at its own expense, and such participation shall not relieve Company of its obligations under this Section 6.
