Confidential Information. For purposes of this Agreement, confidential information shall include the business terms in the Order Form, Your Data, the intellarea Service and the intellarea Materials, and any information that is clearly identified in writing at the time of disclosure as confidential or that should be reasonably understood to be confidential by the receiving party given the nature of the information and the circumstances of its disclosure (“Confidential Information”).
Each party agrees:
(a) to receive and maintain in confidence all Confidential Information disclosed to it by the other party or by a third-party;
(b) not to use the Confidential Information of the other party except to the extent necessary to perform its obligations or exercise rights hereunder;
(c) to limit the internal dissemination of Confidential Information to those employees and contractors of the recipient who have a need to know and an obligation to protect it;
(d) to protect the confidentiality thereof in the same manner as it protects the confidentiality of similar information and data of its own (at all times exercising at least a reasonable degree of care in the protection of such Confidential Information).
intellarea will restrict its employees’ access to Your Confidential Information to only those employees necessary to successfully provide the intellarea Service. intellarea may disclose Confidential Information on a need-to-know basis to its contractors who have executed written agreements requiring them to maintain such information in strict confidence and use it only to facilitate the performance of their services for intellarea in connection with the performance of this Agreement.

(4) the recipient becomes aware of from a third party not bound by non-disclosure obligations to the disclosing party and with the lawful right to disclose such information to the recipient. This Section will not be construed to prohibit the disclosure of Confidential Information to the extent that such disclosure is required by law or order of a court or other governmental authority. The parties agree to give the other party prompt notice of the receipt of any subpoena or other similar request for such disclosure.
