3. Intellectual Property and Confidentiality.

    Confidentiality. During the course of CauseVid LLC providing the Services, the Client and its representatives and users may be given access to information that (i) relates to the other’s past, present and future research development, business activities, products, services, and technical knowledge, and (ii) has been identified as confidential ("Confidential Information").  In connection therewith, the following sections shall apply:

                (A)       The recipient agrees to protect the disclosing party’s Confidential Information with at least the same degree of care that it utilizes with respect to its own similar confidential information (but in no event less than a reasonable degree of care), including, without limitation, agreeing:

                            (i)         Not to disclose or otherwise permit any other person or entity access to, in any manner, the Confidential Information, or any part thereof in any form whatsoever, except that such disclosure or access shall be permitted to an agent of the recipient, requiring access to the Confidential Information in the course of his or her agency in connection with this Agreement provided that such agent is held to those confidentiality obligations no less strict than those set forth herein;

                            (ii)        To notify the disclosing party promptly and in writing of the circumstances surrounding any suspected possession, use or knowledge of the Confidential Information or any part thereof at any location or by any person or entity other than those authorized by this Agreement; and

                            (iii)       Not to use the Confidential Information for any purpose other than as explicitly set forth herein.

                (B)       All Confidential Information made available hereunder, including copies thereof, shall be returned or destroyed upon the first to occur of: (a) completion of the Services or (b) request by disclosing party; provided, however that an early return of the Confidential Information by CauseVid LLC may impact the completion of the Services.

                (C)       Nothing in this Section 3 shall restrict the recipient with respect to information or data, whether or not identical or similar to that contained in the Confidential Information, if such information or data:  (a) was rightfully possessed by the recipient before it was received from the disclosing party; (b) is independently developed by the recipient without reference to the disclosing party's information or data; (c) is subsequently furnished to the recipient by a third party not under any obligation of confidentiality with respect to such information or data, and without restrictions on use or disclosure; or (d) is or becomes public or available to the general public otherwise than through any act or default of the recipient.

                (D)       In the event the recipient receives a subpoena or other validly issued administrative or judicial process requesting Confidential Information of the disclosing party, the recipient shall provide prompt notice to the disclosing party of such receipt.  Thereafter, the recipient shall be entitled to comply with such subpoena or other process to the extent required by law.  Nothing in this subsection (D) shall be construed to release recipient from any other restriction or provision of this Section 3.

                (E)       Because the unauthorized use, transfer or dissemination of any Confidential Information by the recipient may diminish substantially the value of such materials and may irreparably harm the disclosing party, if the recipient breaches the provisions of this Section "Confidentiality", the disclosing party shall, without limiting its other rights or remedies, be entitled to seek equitable relief, including but not limited to injunctive relief.
