Notwithstanding the foregoing, Confidential Information of a party shall not include information that the other party can establish by written documentation (a) to have been publicly known prior to disclosure of such information by the disclosing party to the receiving party; (b) to have become publicly known, without the fault of the receiving party, subsequent to disclosure of such information by the disclosing party to the receiving party; (c) to have been received by the receiving party at any time from a source, other than the disclosing party, rightfully having possession of and the right to disclose such information; (d) to have been otherwise known by the receiving party prior to disclosure of such information by the disclosing party to the receiving party; or (e) to have been independently developed by employees or agents on behalf of the receiving party without access to or use of such information disclosed by the disclosing party to the receiving party.

During the term of this Agreement, and for a period of five (5) years following the expiration or earlier termination hereof, each party shall maintain in confidence all Confidential Information disclosed by the other party and shall not use, grant the use of or disclose to any third party the Confidential Information of the other party other than for the purpose of exercising rights under this Agreement or as expressly permitted hereby. Without limiting the foregoing, each of the parties shall use at least the same degree of care it uses to prevent the disclosure of its own confidential information of like importance, which care shall be no less than reasonable care, to prevent the disclosure of Confidential Information of the other party. Each party shall notify the other promptly upon discovery of any unauthorized use or disclosure of the other party’s Confidential Information.

10.2 Injunctive Relief. Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 10.1 above, or anything contained in this Agreement to the contrary, Venafi and You hereby acknowledge and agree that damages at law may be an inadequate remedy for the breach of any of the covenants, promise and contracts contained in Section 2.3 (Restrictions on Use), Section 3 (Ownership) and Section 9 (Confidentiality). Accordingly, Venafi and You hereby agree that Venafi and/or You shall be entitled to temporary and permanent injunctive relief with respect to any such breach without the necessity of proving actual damages, including specific performance of such covenants, promises or contracts or any order enjoining Venafi or You from any threatened, or from the continuation of any actual, breach of covenants, promises or contracts, and may seek provision or enforcement of any such injunctive relief in any competent court having jurisdiction.

This Agreement supersedes any other understandings or agreements, including, but not limited to, advertising, with respect to the Service. If any provision of this Agreement is deemed invalid or unenforceable by any court or arbiter, that particular provision will be deemed modified to the extent necessary to make the provision valid and enforceable and the remaining provisions will remain in full force and effect.
