8.1 “Confidential Information” means all information of a party (“Disclosing Party”) which the Disclosing Party designates as being confidential when it discloses such information to the other party (“Receiving Party”), or that, given the nature of the information or the circumstances surrounding the disclosure should reasonably be understood to be confidential to a party, including without limitation the Disclosing Party’s business and marketing plans, pricing, client information, employee information, technology and technical information, product design, and business processes (whether in tangible or intangible form, in written or in machine readable form, or disclosed orally or visually). Confidential Information shall not include any information that: (i) is or becomes generally known to the public without the Receiving Party’s breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party; (ii) was independently developed by the Receiving Party without the Receiving Party’s breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party as evidenced by its written records; or (iii) is received from a third party who obtained such Confidential Information without any third party’s breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party or was already rightfully in the Receiving Party’s possession prior to its disclosure by the Disclosing Party. Except as expressly set forth in this Agreement, MAIN agrees that, as it pertains to the Service under this Agreement, it will not collect, store, process, transmit, or access any of Subscriber’s Confidential Information for any purpose other than for the sole purpose of providing the Service to Subscriber.
8.2 The Receiving Party shall not disclose or use any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party for any purpose outside the scope of this Agreement, except with the Disclosing Party’s prior written permission.
8.3 Notwithstanding the foregoing, it shall not be a breach of this Agreement to disclose the terms and conditions of this Agreement to a party’s attorneys, accountants, bankers, other professional advisors or potential investors in connection with a merger, acquisition, corporate reorganization, equity or debt financing, or sale of all or substantially all of its assets, or to the acquirer in such event pursuant to a confidentiality agreement.
8.4 Each party agrees to use the Confidential Information of the other party only for the purposes contemplated in this Agreement and protect the confidentiality of the Confidential Information of the other party in the same manner that it protects the confidentiality of its own confidential information of like kind, but in no event with less than reasonable care.
8.5 If the Receiving Party is compelled by law to disclose Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party, it shall provide the Disclosing Party, to the extent permitted by law, with prior notice of such compelled disclosure and reasonable assistance (at Disclosing Party’s cost) if the Disclosing Party wishes to seek a protective order or otherwise contest the disclosure. If no such protective order or other remedy is sought or obtained pursuant to this Section, the Receiving Party may disclose only that portion of Confidential Information that it is legally required to disclose and will use reasonable efforts to ensure that the Confidential Information disclosed will be accorded confidential treatment. If the Receiving Party discloses or uses (or threatens to disclose or use) any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party in breach of this Section 8, the Disclosing Party may, in addition to any other available remedies, seek injunctive relief to enjoin such acts, it being specifically acknowledged by the parties that any other available remedies are inadequate.
