Any Proprietary Information exchanged by either Party and entitled to protection hereunder shall be identified or marked as such by an appropriate stamp or marking on each document and data file exchanged designating the information as confidential or proprietary. In the case of an oral or inadvertent written disclosure of Proprietary Information, the Disclosing Party (as defined below) may make a contemporaneous written statement to identify such information as Proprietary or may identify such information as Proprietary, in a separate writing, within thirty (30) days of such oral or inadvertent disclosure.

For the avoidance of doubt, Subscriber Data uploaded by Subscriber to Company’s software is Proprietary Information of Subscriber and all products, services, websites and documentation provided by Company are Proprietary Information of the Company. Notwithstanding the above, Proprietary Information shall not include information the Receiving Party (defined below) proves: (a) it had in its possession prior to the date of the disclosure; (b) has become publicly available in a manner other than by a breach of this Agreement or by a “misappropriation” within the meaning of the Uniform Trade Secret Act; or (c) was independently developed by such Party without use, directly or indirectly, of any Proprietary Information of the other Party.

Receiving Party shall make no use of Disclosing Party's Proprietary Information for purposes other than in connection with providing the Service or receiving the benefit of the Service, and without limiting that requirement, shall make no use of the Disclosing Party's Proprietary Information for purposes of competing with, or assisting any other person to compete with, Disclosing Party. Proprietary Information shall not be disclosed to any person except as expressly permitted above, without the express written consent of the Disclosing Party, or if such disclosure is required to be made by applicable law or court order (in which case Receiving Party shall give prompt written notice of such request to Disclosing Party not less than 5 business days before responding or providing such information, and shall cooperate with Disclosing Party in protecting the information if it must be disclosed).

5.3. Exceptions. Notwithstanding the above, the obligations in Section 5.2 shall not apply to information and materials that (i) are received from any Third-Party source that is properly authorized to disclose it and not under a duty of confidentiality, or (ii) are or become generally known to the public by publication or other means other than a breach of duty under this Agreement. In addition, Section 5.2 shall not prohibit a Party from complying with a lawful demand or request for information that is required by law, regulation, court rule or court order to be divulged, provided that the Receiving Party gives the other Party prompt prior written notice of such request, and unless prohibited by applicable law or lawful executive order, provide the other Party a reasonable time to file any request for protective order or to take other protective measures in connection with such disclosure under compulsion of law.

5.4. Permitted uses. Company shall be permitted to use Subscriber Proprietary Information in connection with the provision of the Service functionality – i.e. to upload such information into the Company Service and manipulate the information in accordance with the function of the Service and then present such information to Subscriber.

5.5. Duration of agreement; Return of Information. The obligations in this Section 5 shall survive the termination or expiration of this Agreement.

Receiving Party shall certify to Disclosing Party in an affidavit executed by an authorized representative of Receiving Party that all Proprietary Information disclosed to Receiving Party has been returned to Disclosing Party or destroyed. Notwithstanding the above, either Party may, but is not required to, retain with its attorney, one archival copy of Proprietary Information to be used solely in any litigation concerning the performance of this Agreement; and any Proprietary Information stored in backup storage may be maintained and deleted in accordance with regular backup storage rotation procedures.

5.6. No representations. Except for the representations in Section 5.1, and the Subscriber’s covenants in Section 4 (and its subsections) all Proprietary Information and Intellectual Property is disclosed “as is” without warranty of any kind. For the avoidance of doubt, the Parties agree that it is not within the purpose of the disclosure hereunder to make any use of the other Party’s Confidential Information in connection with a US or foreign patent application, including but not limited to any application that would constitute a “derived patent” as that term is understood within the meaning of 35 USC § 291(a) (a “Derived Patent”), and each Party covenants and agrees not to file any application for a patent that would constitute a Derived Patent arising from access to the Proprietary Information of the other Party.

The foregoing limitations apply even if any remedy fails of its essential purpose. In no event shall Company be liable for any damages or losses as a result of Subscriber’s use of Third Party tools, services, applications or functionality, products or services whether or not they are used in conjunction with Company services.

For all equitable claims, the Parties hereby consent to the sole and exclusive venue and personal jurisdiction of state or federal courts located in San Francisco, California.

The Party suffering a Force Majeure Event shall give prompt written notice the other Party, stating the period of time the occurrence is expected to continue and shall use diligent efforts to end the failure or delay and ensure the effects of such Force Majeure Event are minimized.

8.11. Severability. If any provision hereof is declared invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, then the meaning of that provision will be interpreted, to the extent feasible, in a way that renders it enforceable or valid.
