All records, as well as any information contained within a record, shall be considered the Confidential Information of VidYen, but may be used by user solely for the purposes contemplated by this Agreement.
- "Consumer Information" means all information about a consumer, including, without limitation, all Nonpublic Personal Information (as defined below), contained in a record that has been provided to a party. Consumer Information is not Confidential Information of either party.
- "Nonpublic Personal Information" shall be defined with reference to the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act of 1999, 15 U.S.C. §§ 6801 et seq., and applicable federal and state laws and regulations implementing the Act (collectively, the "Privacy Laws"). Nonpublic Personal Information shall include any information relating to an individual that is not Publicly Available Information (as hereinafter defined) and that the party in possession of such information is required by applicable law to preserve as confidential or otherwise protect.
- "Publicly Available Information", in accordance with the Privacy Laws, shall mean: (1) any information that a party has a reasonable basis to believe is lawfully made available to the general public from: (a) federal, state, or local government records; (b) widely distributed media; or (c) disclosures to the general public that are required to be made by federal, state, or local law; and (2) any other information regarding an individual that the party in possession of such information is not required by applicable law to preserve as confidential or otherwise protect.
- Confidential Information. Each party shall hold the other party's Confidential Information in confidence and shall safeguard it in the same manner as it would safeguard its own proprietary information and trade secrets, and shall use the other party's Confidential Information solely for purposes of performing its obligations under this Agreement. A party shall not be obligated to protect Confidential Information to the extent such information: (i) is publicly known other than through a wrongful act or omission of the receiving party; (ii) was available to or already known by the recipient on a non-confidential basis prior to its disclosure by the other party; (iii) is developed by the recipient independently of any information acquired from the other party; (iv) becomes available to the recipient on a non-confidential basis from a third party, provided that the recipient has no reason to know that the third party is or may be bound by a confidentiality agreement with the disclosing party; or (v) is disclosed pursuant to a court order or the requirement of any governmental authority (in which case the recipient shall promptly notify the disclosing party of any such order or requirement, and cooperate, at the disclosing party's expense, in any effort to obtain a protective order from the issuing court or governmental authority limiting disclosure and use of the information). Each party shall, immediately upon request or the termination of this Agreement, return or destroy all Confidential Information and all copies and embodiments thereof.
- Consumer Information. Each party shall comply with all federal, state and local laws and regulations with respect to Consumer Information and the collection, handling, delivery, processing and transmission thereof, including, without limitation, with respect to confidentiality and security and any consent or authorization necessary to use such information as contemplated hereby.
- Each party shall treat all Consumer Information in accordance with all Privacy Laws and other applicable laws, rules, regulations, including, without limitation: (1) as may be applicable to the use, unauthorized access, confidentiality and security of Consumer Information, and procedures relating to the foregoing, (2) all laws concerning the international transfer of Consumer Information, and (3) all laws applicable to email marketing and telemarketing activities (collectively, the "Data Laws").
- Each party shall disclose Consumer Information only to its employees, officers, agents and any third parties (specifically meaning only insurance carriers or similar parties): (1) who have a need to know such Consumer Information for the purpose of responding to the Consumer's request for products and information from such party; (2) who are informed of their obligations with respect to such Consumer Information; (3) in compliance with all Data Laws; (4) in properly secured or encrypted formats; (5) who are contractually bound to treat the Consumer Information in a manner no less protective than as required of each party hereunder; and (6) if such party remains liable for all acts and omissions of such persons or entities.
- Each party shall maintain appropriate physical, technical and organizational measures to protect all Consumer Information against accidental loss or unauthorized access, use, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Each party acknowledges that the level of security that is appropriate shall depend on the sensitivity of the information, the risks represented by the processing of the Consumer Information, the harm that is likely to result from a breach of security, industry standards, and applicable law, including, without limitation, the Data Laws.
- Each party shall provide reasonable cooperation to the other party and any governmental authorities with jurisdiction to audit and verify such party's data security systems and procedures in order to confirm such party's compliance with these provisions and any applicable Data Laws.
- Required Disclosures. Either party may disclose Consumer Information or Confidential Information (as set forth above) as required by any applicable law, regulation, rule, court or administrative order or similar legal requirements. In the event of any such required disclosure, the disclosing party shall, to the extent permissible under applicable law, immediately notify the other in advance of such disclosure and cooperate in any effort to minimize the extent of such disclosure and maintain the confidentiality of such Consumer Information or Confidential Information. If disclosure of such information is required, the party ordered to comply with such disclosure request shall exercise its best efforts to obtain an order or other reliable assurances that Consumer Information and Confidential Information shall be treated confidentially by the proposed recipient thereof.
- Remedies. Notwithstanding the Termination provisions of this Agreement, each party acknowledges that due to the unique nature of the other party's Confidential Information and Consumer Information, there may be no adequate remedy at law for any breach of its obligations under this Section, and that any such breach or any unauthorized use or release of any Confidential Information or Consumer Information may result in irreparable harm to the party originally providing such Consumer Information to the other party. Therefore, upon any breach or threatened breach, each party shall be entitled to appropriate equitable relief, including, without limitation, injunctive relief, in addition to all other remedies available at law.
- Indemnification. In addition to, and not in limitation of the remedies provided, above, a non-breaching party shall be indemnified by a breaching party for any loss, claim or harm, including, without limitation, reasonable attorney's fees, suffered in connection with the unauthorized use or release of any Confidential Information or Consumer Information as prohibited hereunder.
