In connection with our mutual interest in having discussions regarding doing business in the context of a collaboration, joint venture, consulting arrangement, Strategic Alliance, sale, investment, or other transaction involving or initiated by the Discloser ( the “transactions”), one or more of the parties to this Agreement (individually called the “Discloser”) is providing to the other party (individually called the “Recipient”) or its Representatives (as defined below) with certain information in connection with the Transaction concerning the Discloser which is either non-public, confidential or proprietary in nature and are providing Recipient with access to certain of Discloser’s clients, partners, products, services, trade secrets, consultants, executives and/or advisors. This information previously or hereafter furnished to Recipient or its Representatives, together with analyses, compilations, forecasts, studies or other documents, prepared by Discloser Recipient or its Clients or Representatives which contain or otherwise reflect such information hereafter referred to as the "Information“ shall be treated as CONFIDENTIAL. For the purposes of this Agreement, the term "Representatives" means a party’s directors, officers, employees and those of its agents, lawyers, accountants, consultants, bankers and financial advisors that have a need to know the Information for the purpose of evaluating the Transaction. In consideration of Discloser furnishing Recipient with the Information, Recipient agrees that:
The Information will be kept confidential and will not, without Discloser’s prior written consent, be disclosed by Recipient (except to Recipient’s Representatives on the terms described below), or by its Representatives, in any manner whatever, in whole or in part, and shall not be used by Recipient or its Representatives other than in connection with Recipient’s evaluation of the Transaction, except and only to the extent permitted in writing by the Discloser. Moreover, Recipient agrees that it may reveal the Information only to those of its Representatives who are informed by Recipient of the confidential nature of the Information and who agree to be bound by and act in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Recipient will make and cause its Representatives to make all necessary and appropriate efforts to safeguard the information from disclosure to anyone other than as permitted hereby.
Without the prior written consent of Discloser, except and only to the extent permitted in this agreement, Recipient and its Representatives will not disclose to any person the fact that the Information has been made available, that discussions or negotiations are taking place or have taken place concerning a Transaction or any of the terms, conditions or other facts with respect to any such Transaction, including the status thereof; provided that following a public announcement in respect of a Transaction, Recipient may disclose the fact that Information has been made available to it and the fact that discussions or negotiations have taken place or are taking place in respect of a Transaction but, in so doing, no disclosure of the Information or the substance of the discussions or negotiations shall be made by Recipient. Except as may be otherwise required by law, judicial or governmental order, discovery request, other legal process, or applicable stock exchange requirements, any public notice to third parties and any other public disclosure concerning a Transaction shall be made only with the prior approval of Discloser. In respect of public disclosure required by any Securities regulatory authorities, such disclosure shall be made in consultation with Discloser.
