9.1 Definition. Confidential Information means any information disclosed by one party (Discloser) to the other (Recipient), directly or indirectly, orally or in writing, which is designated as “confidential” or could reasonably be inferred by Recipient to be confidential from the circumstances in which the information is disclosed and includes, without limitation, personal information as defined in the Privacy Act 1988. For the purposes of this EULA, the Software, and the results of any performance, functional or other evaluation of the Software, including the Feedback, will be deemed to be the Confidential Information of the Company; and Customer Data will be Confidential Information of the Customer.
9.2 Exceptions. The confidentiality obligations in this clause 9 will not apply with respect to any of the Discloser's Confidential information which Recipient can demonstrate: (a) was in the public domain at the time it was disclosed to Recipient or has entered the public domain through no act or omission of Recipient; (b) was known to Recipient, without restriction, at the time of disclosure as shown by the files of Recipient in existence at the time of disclosure; (c) was disclosed by Recipient with the prior written approval of Discloser; (d) was independently developed by Recipient without any access to, use of or reliance on Discloser's Confidential Information; or (e) became known to Recipient, without restriction, from a source other than Discloser without breach of this EULA by Recipient and otherwise not in violation of Discloser's rights.
9.3 Restrictions on Use and Disclosure. Recipient agrees not to use Discloser's Confidential Information or disclose, distribute or disseminate Discloser's Confidential Information except in furtherance of the performance of its obligations or enforcement of its rights under this EULA (including the licences in clause 2.1 and 2.2) or as otherwise expressly agreed by Discloser in writing. Recipient agrees to restrict access of Confidential Information to its employees or contractors who need to know such Confidential Information for performing their duties as contemplated under this EULA and have agreed in writing to be bound by confidentiality obligations no less protective than that contained in this EULA. Recipient will exercise the same degree of care to prevent unauthorized use or disclosure of Discloser's Confidential Information to others as it takes to preserve and safeguard its own information of like importance, but in no event less than reasonable care.
9.4 Compelled Disclosure. If Recipient is compelled by a court or other competent authority or applicable law to disclose Confidential Information of Discloser, it will, to the extent permitted by law, give Discloser prompt written notice and will provide Discloser with reasonable cooperation at Discloser's expense so that Discloser may take steps to oppose such disclosure or obtain a restraining order. Recipient will not be in breach of its obligations if it makes any legally compelled disclosure provided that Recipient meets the foregoing notice and cooperation requirements.
9.5 Injunctive Relief. The Recipient acknowledges that disclosure of Confidential Information would cause substantial harm for which damages alone would not be a sufficient remedy, and therefore that upon any such disclosure by Discloser, Recipient will be entitled to appropriate equitable relief in addition to whatever other remedies it might have at law.
9.6 Return of Confidential Information. As between the parties, Confidential Information will remain the property of Discloser. If this EULA terminates and the parties have not entered another agreement for ongoing usage of the Software, then within 30 days after termination, Recipient must promptly return all materials containing Confidential Information to Discloser (noting that the Company may retain aggregated and anonymised data sets based on Customer Data, under clause 6.2).

10.2 Warranty Remedy.

If the Company determines corrections to be impracticable, either party may terminate the applicable Subscription Term. In this case, the Customer will receive a refund of any pre-paid Fees for use of the Software for the terminated portion of the applicable Subscription Term. The Performance Warranty will not apply: (a) during the Trial Term; (b) unless the Customer makes a claim within thirty (30) days of the date on which the Customer first noticed the non-conformity, or (c) if the non-conformity was caused by misuse, unauthorized modifications or
third-party products, software, services or equipment. The Company’s sole liability, and the Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy, for any breach of the Performance Warranty is as set out in this clause 10.2.

Each party will use reasonable efforts to mitigate the effect of a force majeure event.
