The Receiving Party may disclose the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party if it is required to do so pursuant to an order or requirement of a court, administrative agency or other governmental body; provided however, that the Receiving Party shall provide prompt written notice of such court order or requirement to the Disclosing Party to enable the Disclosing Party the possibility to seek a protective order or otherwise prevent or restrict such disclosure, and shall use reasonable efforts to cooperate with the Disclosing Party (at the Disclosing Party’s expense) to obtain such protective order or other appropriate remedy. In the event that such protective order or other remedy is not obtained, or the Disclosing Party waives compliance, in whole or in part, with the terms of this Agreement, the Receiving Party shall use reasonable efforts to disclose only that portion of the Confidential Information that it is legally required to be disclosed or is the subject of such waiver, and to ensure that all Confidential Information that is so disclosed shall be accorded confidential treatment.
The Receiving Party acknowledges that any misuse or unauthorized disclosure of Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party will cause substantial harm to the Disclosing Party for which damages alone may not be a sufficient remedy. Upon any such misuse or unauthorized disclosure by the Receiving Party, the Disclosing Party shall be entitled to seek appropriate equitable relief (without the posting of a bond or similar instrument) in addition to any other remedies it might have available at law.
