10.1 The Parties hereby undertake, during the term of the Agreement and thereafter, not to disclose to any third party information regarding the Agreement, nor any other information which the Parties have learned as a result of the Agreement, whether written or oral and irrespective of form (“Confidential Information”). Confidential Information means all information disclosed by one Party (“Disclosing Party”) to the other Party (“Receiving Party”) regarding the business of the Disclosing Party and its affiliates, including technical, marketing, financial, volunteer, employee, donor; planning, strategies, research, data, know-how, as well as other confidential or proprietary information in any form or medium (e.g., written, verbal, electronic, visual) that, for any of the above: (a) has been identified by the Disclosing Party as “Confidential” or “Proprietary”; or (b) should reasonably be understood to be confidential to the Disclosing Party based on the nature of the information or the circumstances of its disclosure.

The Receiving Party further agrees to use, and ensures its directors, officers, employees, sub-contractors or other intermediaries use the same degree of care (but not less than reasonable care) to avoid disclosure or use of Confidential Information as the Receiving Party uses with respect to its own confidential and/or proprietary information.

10.3 This confidentiality undertaking does not apply to information which the Receiving Party can demonstrate by documentation:

was or becomes generally known by the public other than as a result of a disclosure by the receiving party or any of its representatives; was or is independently developed by the Receiving Party without use of any of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information; was already known to the Receiving Party without restriction on use or disclosure prior to receipt of such information directly or indirectly from or on behalf of the Disclosing Party; or was received by the Receiving Party from a third party who was not, at the time of such disclosure, under any obligation to the Disclosing Party or any other person to maintain the confidentiality of such information. 10.4 In addition, this confidentiality undertaking shall not apply to the extent that any Party is required to make a disclosure of information by law or pursuant to an order of court or other competent authority or tribunal. In the event that any Party would be required to make any such disclosure, each Party undertakes to give the other Party immediate notice prior to any such disclosure, in order to make it possible for the other Party to seek an appropriate protective order or other remedy. Each Party also agrees and undertakes to use its best efforts to ensure that any information disclosed under this section, to the extent possible, shall be treated confidentially by anyone receiving such information. The Receiving Party will promptly notify the Disclosing Party upon discovery of any loss or unauthorized disclosure of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information.
