PROTECTION OF CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION
Obligation to Protect Confidential Information. The parties agree that unless required by law, they shall not make each other’s Confidential Information available in any form to any third party or to use each other’s Confidential Information for any purpose other than the implementation of this Agreement. Each party agrees to take reasonable steps to ensure that Confidential Information is not disclosed or distributed by its employees or agents in violation of the terms of this Agreement. The agreement for confidentiality contained in this Section shall survive termination of this Agreement.
Definition of Confidential Information. Without limitation, Licensor’s "Confidential Information" shall include the Software source code and the Software Trade Secrets contained in the Software. Licensee acknowledges and agrees that the Software, Software Trade Secrets, and portions of the User Documentation constitute and contain valuable proprietary information, products and trade secrets of Licensor, embodying substantial creative efforts, information, ideas, and expressions. Licensee agrees to not reverse decompile or reverse engineer the Software. While Licensor will endeavor to store User data in secure data systems, User acknowledges and agrees that "Confidential Information" shall NOT include Licensee’s information which is stored on the eTransmittal data servers or transmitted via eTransmittal unless we have agreed in advance and in writing to recognize a specified data file or transmission as Confidential Information which is governed by this section. "Confidential Information" shall include Licensee’s proprietary information which is disclosed to Licensor during the performance of support and warranty services provided that the proprietary information is specifically identified as such in writing prior to the commencement of the support and warranty services. "Confidential Information" shall also include such proprietary and confidential information in Licensee’s other software products, to which Licensor’s personnel may have access in the performance of support services described herein.

A party’s "Confidential Information" shall not include information that: (a) is or becomes a part of the public domain through no act or omission of the other party; (b) was in the other party’s lawful possession prior to the disclosure and had not been obtained by the other party either directly or indirectly from the disclosing party; (c) is lawfully disclosed to the other party by a third party without restriction on disclosure; (d) is independently developed by the other party; or (e) is required to be disclosed by any judicial or governmental requirement or order (provided that the recipient timely advises the disclosing party of the governmental demand for disclosure).

eTransmittal warrants the information stored on its Site and the transmission Services to be performed will be reasonably secure, accurate and reliable. However, User acknowledges the inherent risk associated with the storage and transmission of data, and acknowledges that breaches of security and errors of transmission sometimes may occur. Accordingly, User agrees that Licensor is in no way liable for loss of User data, whether in storage or during transmission.

By becoming an eTransmittal User you acknowledge that you neither acquire nor have rights to hold Licensor liable for any and all technical errors, including loss of User files (customer data). USER EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT ETRANSMITTAL IS NOT TO BE USED AS AN OFF-PREMISE BACK UP FOR USER’S DATA, AND USER EXPRESSLY WARRANTS THAT IT WILL ITSELF BACK UP ALL DATA WHICH IS STORED ON ETRANSMITTAL’S SERVERS AND WILL NEVER STORE OR TRANSMIT DATA WHICH USER HAS NOT BACKED UP.
