Recipient will protect Confidential Information from unauthorized use, access, or disclosure in the same manner as Recipient protects its own confidential or proprietary information of a similar nature and with no less than reasonable care.
10.3 Exceptions. Recipient’s obligations under Section 10.2 above with respect to any Confidential Information of Discloser will terminate if and when Recipient can document that such information: (a) was already lawfully known to Recipient at the time of disclosure by Discloser, (b) is disclosed to Recipient by a third party who had the right to make such disclosure without any confidentiality restrictions, (c) is, or through no fault of Recipient has become, generally available to the public, or (d) is independently developed by Recipient without access to or use of the Confidential Information. In addition, Recipient may disclose Confidential Information to the extent that such disclosure is required by law or by the order of a court or similar judicial or administrative body, provided that Recipient notifies Discloser of such required disclosure in writing prior to making such disclosure and cooperates with Discloser, at Discloser’s reasonable request and expense, in any lawful action to contest or limit the scope of such required disclosure.
