    1. As used herein, “Confidential Information” means all confidential and proprietary information of a party (“Disclosing Party”) disclosed to the other party (“Receiving Party”), whether orally or in writing, that is designated as “confidential” or the like, or that reasonably should be understood to be confidential given the nature of the information and the circumstances of disclosure, including the terms and conditions of this Agreement (including pricing and other terms reflected in a Purchase Order), the BlueRush Products business and marketing plans, technology and technical information, product designs, and business processes.
    2. “Confidential Information” shall not include information that (i) is or becomes a matter of public knowledge through no act or omission of the Receiving Party; (ii) was in the Receiving Party’s lawful possession prior to the disclosure without restriction on disclosure; (iii) is lawfully disclosed to the Receiving Party by a third party that lawfully and rightfully possesses such information without restriction on disclosure;

The Receiving Party shall not make Confidential Information available to any of its employees or consultants except those that have agreed to obligations of confidentiality at least as restrictive as those set forth herein and have a “need to know” such Confidential Information. The Receiving Party agrees to hold the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information in confidence and to take all precautions to protect such Confidential Information that the Receiving Party employs with respect to its own Confidential Information of a like nature, but in no case shall the Receiving Party employ less than reasonable precautions. Receiving Party shall promptly notify Disclosing Party if it becomes aware of any actual or reasonably suspected breach of confidentiality of Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information. This Agreement will not be construed to prohibit disclosure of Confidential Information to the extent that such disclosure is required to by law or valid order of a court or other governmental authority; provided, however, to the extent permitted by law, the responding party shall give prompt written notice to the other party to enable the other party to seek a protective order or otherwise prevent or restrict such disclosure and, if disclosed, the scope of such disclosure is limited to the extent possible.
    4. The Receiving Party will return all copies of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information upon the earlier of (i) the Disclosing Party’s request, or (ii) the termination or expiration of this Agreement. Instead of returning such Confidential Information, the Receiving Party may destroy all copies of such Confidential Information in its possession; provided, however, the Receiving Party may retain a copy of any Confidential Information disclosed to it solely for archival purposes, provided that such copy is retained in secure storage and held in the strictest confidence for so long as the Confidential Information remains in the possession of the Receiving Party.
    5. The parties acknowledge and agree that the confidentiality obligations set forth in this Agreement are reasonable and necessary for the protection of the parties’ business interests, that irreparable injury may result if such obligations are breached, and that, in the event of any actual or potential breach of Section 3, the non-breaching party may have no adequate remedy at law and shall be entitled to seek injunctive and/or other equitable relief as may be deemed proper by a court of competent jurisdiction.
  4. PROTECTION OF PERSONAL DATA

    1. BlueRush will maintain administrative, physical, and technical safeguards for protection of the security and confidentiality of Personal Data, including, but will not be limited to, measures for preventing unauthorized access, use, modification or disclosure of Personal Data.

To this end, Customer shall be responsible for carrying out all mandatory reporting and/or consent requirements. Customer is hereby also informed that Customer Data, including Personal Data, that Customer transfers to BlueRush when using the BlueRush Products may, depending on the geographical location of the Users, cross borders as they are routed to the servers that host the BlueRush Products and store the Customer Data. Customer undertakes to inform the relevant Personal Data owners and data subjects, and to obtain any required prior consent.

Customer shall not remove from any full or partial copies made by Customer of the Software, Software Updates and Documentation any copyright or other proprietary notice contained in or on the original, as delivered to Customer.
    3. Each party acknowledges that the BlueRush Products contain valuable trade secrets and proprietary information of BlueRush, that in the event of any actual or threatened breach of the scope of any of the licenses granted hereunder, such breach shall constitute immediate, irreparable harm to BlueRush for which monetary damages would be an inadequate remedy, and that injunctive relief is an appropriate remedy for such breach in addition to whatever remedies BlueRush might have at law or under this Agreement.
  6. FEES, PAYMENT AND REPORTING

    1. Fees. Fees for the BlueRush Products will be the Subscription Fees and other fees set forth in the Purchase Orders (collectively, the “Fees”).

Any payment not received from Customer by the due date may accrue (except for amounts then under reasonable and good faith dispute) interest at the rate of one and one-half percent (1.5%) of the outstanding balance per month, or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is lower, from the date such payment was due until the date paid. BlueRush may decline to make any shipments of BlueRush Products or provide Services if, in BlueRush’s reasonable opinion, circumstances exist which raise doubt as to Customer’s ability or willingness to pay as provided herein. Failure to make timely payment may result in immediate termination of access to the BlueRush Products. Upon default by Customer, BlueRush will have all remedies available at law or in equity. No refunds will be made except as expressly provided for under warranties and intellectual property indemnity for the applicable BlueRush Product.
    4. Disputed Invoices. Customer shall have the right to withhold payment of any invoiced amounts that are disputed in good faith until the parties reach agreement with respect to such disputed amounts, and such withholding of disputed amounts shall not be deemed a breach of this Agreement, nor shall any interest be paid thereon. In such case, Customer shall promptly (and in no event more than ten (10) business days from receipt of invoice) provide written notice to BlueRush of any such dispute prior to withholding such payment, specifying in reasonable detail the nature of the dispute and the amount withheld, and shall pay all undisputed amounts set forth on such invoice in accordance with this Section. The parties will negotiate in good faith to attempt to resolve such disputes within thirty (30) days of submission of such dispute by Customer.
  7. SUPPORT AND PROFESSIONAL SERVICES

    1. BlueRush shall provide support provided Customer is current in payment of the applicable Fees.

As Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy and BlueRush’s entire liability for any breach of the foregoing warranty, BlueRush will use reasonable efforts to re- perform the Professional Services or, if BlueRush is unable to do so, terminate the applicable SOW and refund that portion of any Fees paid to BlueRush or Reseller that correspond to the allegedly defective Professional Services.
