Confidential Information may be disclosed in writing, orally or in other tangible or intangible form, and must be either marked, otherwise identified as confidential or proprietary, or be information which ought to be considered confidential or proprietary based on its nature or from the circumstances surrounding its creation or disclosure. The Products, any documents, Product updates, or other materials or documents provided to Customer pursuant to the Terms and the Terms and its contents, shall be considered Samsung SDS’s Confidential Information. Confidential Information covered by this Section (Nondisclosure) shall also include Confidential Information belonging to the Disclosing Party but disclosed by the Disclosing Party’s parent, affiliated companies, employees, consultants, and agents (collectively, “Representatives”) on behalf of the Disclosing Party.
20.2 The Receiving Party shall hold and keep in confidence, and protect from unauthorized disclosure or use, all Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party, using the same means it uses to hold in confidence, and protect, its own Confidential Information, but in no event using less than reasonable care. The Receiving Party shall make use of the Confidential Information only for the purpose of performing its obligations under the Terms. The Receiving Party shall not disclose Confidential Information, whether directly or indirectly, to any third party without prior written approval of the Disclosing Party. However, the Receiving Party may grant access and disclose the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party only to those of its Representatives on a “need to know” basis provided each such Representative is subject to written obligations of confidentiality, non-disclosure, and use restrictions, substantially as restrictive than those contained herein, and that are applicable, by their own terms, to the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information that is so disclosed to any such Representatives. The Receiving Party shall be liable for all acts and omissions of such Representatives. Each Receiving Party shall be responsible for any breach of the terms of the Terms by any of its Representatives and shall take all commercially reasonable measures (including, but not limited to, court proceedings in the appropriate circumstances) to restrain such Representatives from unauthorized disclosure or use of the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party.
20.3 Confidential Information shall not include any information which:
a.is made public by the Disclosing Party, or is in the public domain otherwise than as a result of a breach of the Terms;
b.was in the possession of the Receiving Party without an obligation of confidentiality before its receipt of the Confidential Information whether directly or indirectly from the Disclosing Party, as evidenced by the Receiving Party’s written records;
c.is disclosed to the Receiving Party in good faith by a third party who had a lawful right to make such disclosure without breach of any confidentiality obligation; or
d.is independently developed by Receiving Party without use of the Confidential Information as evidenced by the Receiving Party’s written records.

The Receiving Party shall also, at the same time, remove and delete all electronic copies of such Confidential Information from all storage media and furnish written verification of complete removal and deletion to the Disclosing Party.
20.5 The Receiving Party agrees and acknowledges that the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party constitutes valuable proprietary information for which there may be no adequate remedy at law for any breach of the obligation under this Section (Nondisclosure), which breach may result in irreparable harm to the Disclosing Party. The Receiving Party therefore agrees that upon any such breach or threatened breach of the provisions of the Terms, the Disclosing Party shall be entitled, in addition to any other remedies it may have at law or in equity, to obtain injunctive, prohibitory or other urgent relief against such breach or threatened breach and the Receiving Party and its Representatives shall not plead as a defense to such action by the Disclosing Party that the Disclosing Party has an adequate remedy or other remedies at law.
20.6 Notwithstanding anything else in this Section (Nondisclosure) and to the minimum extent legally required, the Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information to the extent required by law, or by a valid order of any governmental or applicable regulatory body, provided that the Receiving Party shall promptly provide the Disclosing Party with written notice of such order prior to such disclosure (unless prohibited by such law or order) so as to afford the Disclosing Party reasonable opportunity to oppose such disclosure, or obtain a protective order, and the Receiving party shall provide reasonable assistance to the Disclosing Party in connection with the Disclosing Party’s efforts to obtain such a disclosure limitation or protective order. Confidential Information disclosed pursuant to this Subsection shall itself be considered Confidential Information.

The Terms may not be modified and the rights and restrictions may not be altered or waived except in a writing signed by authorized representatives of Customer and of Samsung SDS.

Neither party shall be responsible for failure or delay of performance if caused by: an act of war, hostility, or sabotage; act of God; pandemic, electrical, internet, or telecommunication outage that is not caused by the obligated party; government restrictions (including the denial or cancellation of any export, import or other license and permit); or other events outside the reasonable control of the obligated party. Both parties will use reasonable efforts to mitigate the effect of a force majeure event. If such event continues for more than thirty (30) days, either party may cancel the unperformed Terms upon written notice. This Section (Force Majeure) does not excuse either party’s obligation to take reasonable steps to follow its normal disaster recovery procedures or Customer’s obligation to pay for the Software ordered or delivered.
