 15.     CONFIDENTIALITY

 15.1       Definition of Confidential Information. “Confidential Information” means all information disclosed by a party (“Disclosing Party”) to the other party (“Recipient”), whether orally or in writing, that is designated as confidential or that reasonably should be understood to be confidential given the nature of the information and the circumstances of disclosure. Client’s Confidential Information includes Client Data; MASS EQS’s Confidential Information includes the Software, the Services, and the terms of this Agreement.

 15.2       Exclusions. Confidential Information does not include the following information:  (a) information that is known to the Recipient at the time of disclosure, as evidenced by any written documents in the possession of the Recipient or which may be substantiated by equivalent means of evidence; (b) information that is available to the general public at the time of disclosure to the Recipient or is subsequently made available to the general public, without restrictions as to its use or disclosure, without fault of the Recipient; (c) information that is disclosed to the Recipient by reason by another person or entity having the right to disclose or publicize it; (d) information that is intentionally distributed without restrictions as to confidentiality by the Disclosing Party.

15.3       Non-Disclosure and Protection of Confidential Information. The Recipient will, (a) use the same degree of care that it uses to protect the confidentiality of its own Confidential Information of like kind (but not less than reasonable care), (b) not use any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party for any purpose other than to perform its obligations or exercise its rights under this Agreement, and (c) except as otherwise authorized by the Disclosing Party in writing, limit the access to Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to those of its and its directors, officers, employees, contractors, representatives, and affiliates (“Recipient Parties”) who have a need to know of the Confidential Information solely for the purpose set out in and consistent with this Agreement, and only to the Recipient Parties who are under an enforceable legal obligation to maintain the Confidential Information in the strictest confidence under the same conditions as set out in this Article 6, and/or have signed confidentiality agreements with the Recipient containing protections no less stringent than those herein. The Recipient shall be responsible in all respects (directly and indirectly) for any disclosure of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information in violation/breach of this Article 15.

 15.4       Prohibitions. With the exception of any disclosure permitted by the foregoing, the Recipient hereby agrees not to sell, license, transfer, publish, disclose, display, make available to any Person, the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party. In the event of a loss of any item containing Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party, or other instance as a result of which the unauthorized disclosure of Confidential Information is suspected (or ought reasonably to be suspected) to have occurred, the Recipient agrees to promptly notify the Disclosing Party in writing upon discovery of such loss.

 15.5       Compelled Disclosure. In addition, the Recipient may disclose the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to the extent that the Recipient is compelled under the Applicable Law of Canada, to make such disclosures, provided that where the Recipient is being compelled to disclose any such Confidential Information, the Recipient shall provide the Disclosing Party with prompt notice (to the extent permitted by Applicable Law), to allow the Disclosing Party to seek one or more protective orders, or other appropriate remedies to prevent or limit such disclosure, and the Recipient will co-operate with the Disclosing Party and its legal counsel to the fullest extent to obtain any such protective orders or other remedies.  If such protective orders or other remedies are not obtained, the compelled Recipient will only disclose that portion of the Confidential Information that the Recipient legally compelled to disclose, and only to such Person(s) to which such Party is legally compelled to disclose.

15.6       Equitable Relief. The Recipient hereby acknowledges and agrees that it would be damaging to the Disclosing Party if Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party which the Recipient has or will come into its possession or knowledge in connection with the Agreement ,or the performance of its obligations hereunder, is used other than is authorized under this Agreement or is disclosed to any Person. It is understood that such damages may be difficult to calculate, that monetary damages alone may not be a sufficient remedy for any breach of the Confidentiality obligations contained in this Article 6, and that such breach will cause irreparable damage to the Disclosing Party. It is hereby agreed that upon any such breach, or threatened breach, by the Recipient, the Disclosing Party wishing to protect its Confidential Information will be entitled to seek and obtain equitable relief, including injunctive relief and specific performance, or any other relief as may be granted by any court, without the necessity of proving actual damages or posting of security or a bond.

Each Party agrees that Personal Information provided to it by the other Party shall only be used for such purposes as are specified herein  and neither Party shall sell, transfer or disclose such Personal Information to any other Person.
