7.1 Non-Disclosure Obligations. In connection with this Agreement, each Party (“Recipient”) may receive or have access to Confidential Information from or on behalf of the other Party (“Discloser”). Each Recipient shall maintain all such Confidential Information in strict confidence and shall not, except as expressly permitted herein: (a) use any of Discloser’s Confidential Information, or (b) disclose Discloser’s Confidential Information to any person or third-party. Each party further agrees to protect the Confidential Information of the other party with the same degree of care as it uses to protect its own Confidential Information of like importance, but in no event using less than a standard of reasonable care. The Recipient may disclose Confidential Information only to its employees, contractors or subcontractors, agents, service providers, attorneys and financial advisors (collectively, “Representatives”) having a “need to know” to carry out Recipient’s obligations under this Agreement. Each Party will: (a) notify and inform its Representatives of such party’s obligations regarding Confidential Information; (b) enter into non-disclosure agreements with its non-employee Representatives requiring them to comply with such obligations prior to disclosing Confidential Information; and (c) be responsible for any breach of the confidentiality obligations in this Agreement by such party’s Representatives. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any disclosure by Recipient pursuant to a subpoena or other validly issued administrative or judicial process requesting Discloser’s Confidential Information shall not be deemed a violation hereof. To the extent legally permissible, Recipient will notify Discloser in writing prior to making any disclosure in response to a subpoena or other validly issued administrative or judicial process and will cooperate with Discloser in seeking a protective order or other appropriate remedy. Recipient further agrees that it will exercise reasonable efforts to obtain assurances that confidential treatment will be accorded any Confidential Information disclosed pursuant to a subpoena or other validly issued administrative or judicial process.
7.2. Discloser’s Retention of Rights. Nothing in this Agreement shall convey to Recipient any right, title, or ownership interest in Discloser’s Confidential Information, or any Personal Information provided to or developed by Recipient during the performance of Services under this Agreement. Recipient shall not claim a lien on any Discloser Confidential Information or Personal Information. In the event of the bankruptcy, insolvency or other business failure or suspension of operations of Recipient, Recipient shall not sell, transfer, or disclose any materials that contain Discloser Confidential Information or Personal Information.
7.3. Return of Confidential Information. At any time after the disclosure or receipt of any Discloser Confidential Information by Recipient, and at the request and option of Discloser, Recipient agrees, subject to any record retention requirements of Recipient, to promptly return to Discloser, or destroy all originals and any copies (including any archival copies) of, such Confidential Information, including extracts or other reproductions in whole or in part of such written material (and to delete all forms of recordation in whatever media stored, whether in existence now or invented in the future). All documents, spreadsheets, memoranda, notes and other writings whatsoever prepared by Recipient based on Confidential Information shall be destroyed, and all computer files shall be permanently deleted or erased. To the extent any portion of the Confidential Information is retained on Recipient’s information systems following Recipient’s good faith effort to delete the Confidential Information, the Recipient agrees to protect the Confidential Information in the same manner and to the same extent that it uses to protect its own confidential and proprietary information for so long as it retains the Confidential Information. Recipient shall also compel its applicable Representatives who receive Confidential Information to comply with this Section 7.3.
7.4. Security Breach. In the event of a security breach involving unauthorized access to a Party’s Confidential Information (“Security Breach”), Recipient shall provide a reasonably detailed notification of the Security Breach to the Discloser within a reasonable period of time given the circumstances following the discovery of such Security Breach (unless such notification is prohibited by law, regulation or order of court or law enforcement agency exercising proper jurisdiction, in which case such notification shall be provided within a reasonable period of time following the lifting of such prohibition), and thereafter, in consultation with Discloser, make all disclosures as required by Applicable Laws.
7.5. Irreparable Harm; Remedy. Both Parties acknowledge and agree that, in the event of a breach of any of the foregoing provisions in this Article 7, the other Party may be irreparably harmed and have no adequate remedy in damages and, accordingly, shall be entitled to seek injunctive relief against such breach; provided, however, that no specification of a particular legal or equitable remedy shall be construed as a waiver, prohibition or limitation of any legal or equitable remedies in the event of a breach hereof.
7.6. Whistleblower Immunity/Defend Trade Secrets Act. NOTICE OF IMMUNITY FROM LIABILITY FOR CONFIDENTIAL DISCLOSURE OF A TRADE SECRET TO THE GOVERNMENT OR IN A COURT FILING: Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, under the Federal Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016, Miovision and Customer acknowledge and agree that an individual may not be held criminally or civilly liable under any federal or state trade secret law for the disclosure of a trade secret that (a) is made (i) in confidence to a federal, state or local government official, either directly or indirectly, or to an attorney; and (ii) solely for the purpose of reporting or investigating a suspected violation of law; or (b) is made in a complaint or other document filed in a lawsuit or other proceeding, if such filing is made under seal. An individual who files a lawsuit for retaliation by an employer for reporting a suspected violation of Applicable Laws may disclose the trade secret to the attorney of the individual and use the trade secret information in the court proceeding if the individual files any document containing the trade secret under seal and does not disclose the trade secret except pursuant to court order. Nothing herein is intended, or should be construed, to affect the immunities created by the Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016.
7.7 Security Practices and Requirements.

8.4. Non-Exclusivity. Miovision provides similar services and deliverables to other end users, customers, resellers, distributors, partners, and other entities, and nothing in this Agreement, any Order Form, shall be construed to prevent Miovision from carrying on such business or from acquiring, licensing, marketing, distributing, developing for itself or others or having others develop for it similar products, services or materials or performing the same or similar functions as the Products contemplated by this Agreement or any applicable Order Form. For greater certainty, Miovision is free to use without restriction its general knowledge, skills and experience and any ideas, concepts, know-how and techniques learned in the course of providing Miovision’s Products to the Customer under this Agreement.

8.8. Reservation of Rights. Miovision reserves all rights not expressly granted to Customer in this Agreement.

8.9. Confidentiality of Miovision IP and other Miovision Intellectual Property.
