7.1 Confidentiality Agreement. Each of the parties hereto undertakes to the other to keep confidential and not disclose to any third party all Confidential Information concerning the business and affairs of the other that it shall have obtained or received as a result of the discussions leading up to or the entering into or performance of this Agreement. At a minimum, the Receiving Party agrees to take the same security precautions to protect against disclosure or unauthorized use of such Confidential Information that the party takes with its own proprietary information, but in no event will a party apply less than reasonable precautions to protect such Confidential Information. Confidential Information shall mean any information which, by its nature or circumstances of disclosure, would reasonably be presumed to be confidential. Despite the foregoing, the Product Materials, and each party’s product road maps, product development plans, pricing, business plans, customer lists, business and financial information shall be deemed to be such party’s Confidential Information. Further, despite any other provision to the contrary, neither party may disclose the specific terms of this Agreement, except as required by law.

Despite all of the foregoing, Confidential Information will not include any information which: (a) is already lawfully in the receiving party’s possession (unless received pursuant to a nondisclosure agreement); (b) is or becomes generally available to the public through no fault of the receiving party; (c) is disclosed to the receiving party by a third party who may transfer or disclose such information without restriction; (d) is disclosed by the receiving party with the disclosing party’s approval; or (e) is independently developed by the receiving party without any use of Confidential Information of the disclosing party. In the event that the receiving party is required by law to make any disclosure of any of the Confidential Information of the disclosing party, by subpoena, judicial or administrative order or otherwise, the receiving party shall first give written notice of such requirement to the disclosing party, and shall permit the disclosing party to intervene in any relevant proceedings to protect its interests in the Confidential Information, and provide full cooperation and assistance to the disclosing party in seeking to obtain such protection.

7.4 Injunctive Relief. Because of the unique and proprietary nature of the Confidential Information, it is understood and agreed that the disclosing party’s remedies at law for a breach by the receiving party of its obligations hereunder may be inadequate and that the disclosing party shall be entitled to seek equitable relief (including without limitation provisional and permanent injunctive relief and specific performance).
7.5 Destruction or Return of Information. Upon expiration or termination of this Agreement for any reason, the receiving party will destroy (or at the request of the disclosing party, return) all copies of all Confidential Information of the disclosing party in its possession or under its control. Despite the foregoing, the receiving party (a) shall not be required to return or destroy copies of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information from its disaster recovery and/or business continuity databases, where doing so would be commercially impracticable, and (b) may retain a single archive copy of the Confidential Information to the extent required to comply with applicable legal and regulatory requirements, provided that in either case the receiving party maintains the Confidential Information in compliance with the terms of this Agreement until destroyed, which shall occur as soon as reasonably practicable.

Upon termination, upon Licensee’s request, and provided that Licensee has met all of its financial and other obligations under this Agreement, Mattermost will furnish Licensee with an electronic copy of the Licensee Data, in a form to be determined by Mattermost. Mattermost will remove the Licensee Data from the Cloud Infrastructure upon Licensee’s notice to Mattermost that Licensee has received such data in good condition, or sixty (60) days following termination of this Agreement, whichever comes first.

12.1 Waiver. The waiver by either party of a breach or default of any of the provisions of this Agreement by the other party shall not be construed as a waiver of any succeeding breach of the same or other provisions nor shall any delay or omission on the part of either party to exercise or avail itself of any right power or privilege that it has or may have hereunder operate as a waiver of any breach or default by the other party.
12.2 Notices.
