Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing (except the Fauna, Company Software and underlying software, algorithms and information (other than Customer Information) embodied therein, which is Confidential Information of Company, and except the Customer Information, which is Confidential Information of Customer) will be considered “Confidential Information” of the Disclosing Party unless either it is or was disclosed in tangible or written form and is conspicuously marked “Confidential” at the time of disclosure or it is identified as confidential or proprietary at the time of disclosure and is delivered in the appropriately marked form within thirty (30) days of disclosure or which a reasonable person would consider confidential.

6.2 The Receiving Party agrees to hold all Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party in strict confidence and not to disclose such information to third parties, or use such information for any purposes whatsoever other than pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth in these Terms and to advise each of its employees and agents of their obligations to keep such information confidential. Even when disclosure is permitted, each party agrees to limit access to and disclosure of the other party’s Confidential Information to its employees and agents on a “need to know” basis only who are bound by obligations of confidentiality at least as protective as those contained herein. The Disclosing Party agrees that the foregoing shall not apply with respect to any information after three (3) years following the disclosure thereof (except the Company Software, Fauna and underlying software, algorithms and information embodied therein and Customer Information, which shall remain confidential indefinitely). Confidential Information shall exclude all information, which (i) is at the time of disclosure, or thereafter becomes, generally known to the public through no act or omission of the Receiving Party, its employees or agents; (ii) was in the Receiving Party’s possession as shown by written records without any obligation of confidentiality prior to the disclosure by the Disclosing Party and had not been obtained by the Receiving Party either directly or indirectly from the Disclosing Party; (iii) was rightfully provided to Receiving Party by a third party without obligation of confidentiality; or (iv) was independently developed by the Receiving Party without use of the Confidential Information, as evidenced by contemporaneous written records.

In the event that no such protective order or other remedy is obtained, or the Disclosing Party waives compliance (in whole or in part) with the confidentiality terms and conditions of these Terms with respect thereto, the Receiving Party shall disclose only that portion of the Confidential Information that is required to be disclosed and shall use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that all Confidential Information that is disclosed shall be accorded confidential treatment.

7. Open Source Software Fauna may contain open source software components, each of which has its own copyright notice requirements and own applicable license conditions.
