Section 10 – Confidentiality
10.1. Confidential Information. During the term of this Agreement, each party (the “Disclosing Party”) may provide the other party (the “Receiving Party”) with certain information regarding the Disclosing Party’s business, technology, products, or services, or other confidential or proprietary information (collectively, “Confidential Information”) in whatever form (written, oral or visual) that is furnished or made available to the Receiving Party by or on behalf of the Disclosing Party that (a) if in tangible form, the Disclosing Party has labeled in writing as proprietary or confidential, (b) if in oral or visual form, the Disclosing Party has identified as proprietary or confidential at the time of disclosure, or (c) is of a character that is commonly and reasonably regarded as confidential and/or proprietary. For the avoidance of doubt, the Services will be considered Confidential Information of Legal.com.
10.2. Protection of Confidential Information. The Receiving Party agrees that it will not use or disclose to any third party any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party, except for exercising its rights and performing its obligations under this Agreement. The Receiving Party will limit access to the Confidential Information to its employees and contractors who have a need to know, who are subject to confidentiality obligations no less restrictive than those set forth herein and who have been informed of the confidential nature of such information. In addition, the Receiving Party will protect the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information from unauthorized use, access, or disclosure in the same manner that it protects its own proprietary information of a similar nature, but in no event with less than reasonable care. At the Disclosing Party’s request or upon termination of this Agreement, the Receiving Party will return to the Disclosing Party or destroy (or permanently erase in the case of electronic files) all copies of the Confidential Information that the Receiving Party does not have a continuing right to use under this Agreement, and, upon request, the Receiving Party shall provide to the Disclosing Party written notice certifying compliance with this sentence, unless prohibited by applicable law.
10.3. Exceptions. The confidentiality obligations set forth in this section will not apply to any information that: (a) is or becomes generally available to the public through no fault of the Receiving Party; (b) is lawfully provided to the Receiving Party by a third party free of any confidentiality duties or obligations; (c) the Receiving Party can prove, by clear and convincing evidence, was already known to the Receiving Party without restriction at the time of disclosure; or (d) the Receiving Party can prove, by clear and convincing evidence, was independently developed by employees and contractors of the Receiving Party who had no access to the Confidential Information. In addition, the Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information to the extent that such disclosure is necessary for the Receiving Party to enforce its rights under this Agreement or is required by law or by the order of a court or similar judicial or administrative body, provided that the Receiving Party promptly (to the extent legally permitted) notifies the Disclosing Party in writing of such required disclosure and reasonably cooperates with the Disclosing Party if the Disclosing Party seeks an appropriate protective order.
10.4. Remedies. Any breach or threatened or attempted breach of this Section 10 may result in immediate, irreparable harm for which monetary damages would be an inadequate remedy. If a court of competent jurisdiction finds that the Receiving Party has breached (or attempted or threatened to breach) any of the obligations set forth in this Section 10, the Receiving Party agrees that, without any additional findings of irreparable injury or other conditions to injunctive relief, it will not oppose the entry of an appropriate order compelling its performance and restraining it from any further breaches (or attempted or threatened breaches).
Section 11 - Severability.
In the event that any provision of this Agreement is determined to be unlawful, void or unenforceable, such provision shall nonetheless be enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, and the unenforceable portion shall be deemed to be severed from this Agreement, such determination shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any other remaining provisions.
Section 12 - Miscellaneous.
(a) Company operates and controls the Service from its offices in the United States of America. Company makes no representation that the Service is appropriate or available in other locations. The information by the Company is not intended for distribution to or use by any person or entity in any jurisdiction or country where such distribution or use would be contrary to law or regulation or which would subject the Company to any registration requirement within such jurisdiction or country. Accordingly, those persons who choose to access the Service from other locations do so on their own initiative and are solely responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable.
(b) This Agreement is effective until terminated by either party. The privileges granted to you under this Agreement will terminate immediately and automatically without notice from the Company if, in our sole discretion, you fail to comply with any term or provision of this Agreement or for any reason in the Company’s sole discretion.
(c) Neither the course of conduct between the parties nor trade practice will act to modify this Agreement to any party at any time without any notice to you.
(d) You may not assign this Agreement without the Company’s prior written consent, which may be withheld in Company’s sole discretion, and any assignment without such consent shall be deemed null and void. Such anti-assignment provision shall not apply to any entity that has a right to assign its written agreement with the Company relating to the Service.
(e) The section headings used in this Agreement are for convenience only and will not be given any legal import.
(f) Upon Company’s request, you will furnish Company any documentation, substantiation or releases necessary to verify your compliance with this Agreement.
(g) You hereby waive any and all defenses you may have based on the electronic form of this Agreement and the lack of signing by the parties hereto to execute this Agreement. Your use of our mobile application and Services constitutes acceptance of this Agreement.
