For purposes of these Terms, ‘Confidential Information’ shall mean all non-public, confidential and proprietary information relating to the Parties, their respective clients and the Service, which has been or will be disclosed by a Party orally or as set forth in writing, or contained in some other tangible form. The receiving Party hereby agrees to hold in strict confidence and to use all reasonable efforts to maintain the secrecy of any and all Confidential Information disclosed by the disclosing Party under these Terms and may not disclose Confidential Information without the express, written prior consent of the disclosing Party, with the exception of the following:
Information that, at the time of disclosure, is available to the public, or thereafter becomes available to the public by publication or otherwise, other than by breach of this Agreement by the receiving Party.

Information that the receiving Party can establish was independently developed by their employees or contractors who had no contact with and were not aware of the content of the Confidential Information.
The receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information if compelled to do so by a court, administrative agency or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction, provided however, that in such case the receiving Party shall, immediately upon receiving notice that disclosure may be required, give written notice by facsimile and overnight mail to the providing Party so that the providing Party may seek a protective order or other remedy from said court or tribunal.

The receiving Party shall not use the Confidential Information for any purpose other than in connection with the Service or to improve or develop new services. The receiving Party will only disclose Confidential Information to their directors, officers, employees, agents, service providers or associated companies, as applicable all of which are to be bound by terms no less onerous than these Terms.
