8.             CONFIDENTIALITY

 

8.1          Nondisclosure. “Confidential Information” means any information disclosed by a party (“Discloser”) to the other (“Recipient”), directly or indirectly, in writing, orally or by inspection of tangible objects, which is designated as "Confidential," "Proprietary" or some similar designation, or learned by Recipient under circumstances in which such information would reasonably be understood to be confidential.  Confidential Information may include information disclosed in confidence to Discloser by third parties.  As between the parties, the each party’s software, products, results of any performance, functional or other evaluation of such software and/or products, any Feedback, documentation, training materials, ancillary programs, formulas, methods, know how, processes, designs, new products, developmental work, marketing requirements, marketing plans, customer names, and prospective customer names are Confidential Information of such Party. 

 

8.2          Recipient agrees not to use Confidential Information or disclose, distribute or disseminate such Confidential Information except as allowed hereunder or as otherwise expressly agreed in writing by Discloser.  Recipient agrees to restrict access to such Confidential Information to those employees or consultants of Recipient who need to know such information for performing as contemplated hereunder and have agreed to be bound by a confidentiality obligation not less protective than that contained in this Agreement.   Recipient shall exercise the same degree of care to prevent unauthorized use or disclosure of the Confidential Information to others as it takes to preserve and safeguard its own confidential information of like importance, but in no event less than reasonable care. 

 

8.3          The confidentiality obligations in this Section shall not apply with respect to Discloser information which Recipient can demonstrate that it: (a) was in the public domain at the time it was disclosed to Recipient or has become in the public domain through no act or omission of Recipient; (b) was known to Recipient, without restriction, at the time of disclosure as shown by the files of Recipient in existence at the time of disclosure; (c) is disclosed by Recipient with the prior written approval of Discloser; (d) was independently developed by Recipient without any use of the Confidential Information by employees or other agents of (or contractors hired by) Recipient who had no access to any Confidential Information; or (e) became known to Recipient, without restriction, from a source other than Discloser without breach of this Agreement by Recipient and otherwise not in violation of Discloser’s rights.

 

8.4          If Recipient believes that it will be compelled by a court or other authority or applicable law to disclose Confidential Information of Discloser, it shall give Discloser prompt written notice and shall provide Discloser with reasonable cooperation at Discloser’s expense so that Discloser may take steps to oppose such disclosure. Recipient shall not be in breach of its obligations in this Section 9 if it makes any disclosure described in the immediately preceding sentence provided that Recipient provides the notice and cooperation required therein.

 

8.5          Recipient acknowledges that breach of the confidentiality obligations would cause irreparable harm to Discloser, the extent of which may be difficult to ascertain.  Accordingly, Recipient agrees that Discloser is entitled to immediate injunctive relief in the event of breach of an obligation of confidentiality by Recipient, and that Discloser shall not be required to post a bond or show irreparable harm in order to obtain such injunctive relief.

 

8.6          At any time, upon Discloser’s reasonable request, Recipient shall promptly return to Discloser any Confidential Information.  In addition, within thirty (30) days after termination of this Agreement, Recipient shall (i) promptly return all tangible materials containing such Confidential Information to Discloser and (ii) without limiting the foregoing, remove all Confidential Information from any Recipient servers and other assets.  Concurrently with the return of such materials, Recipient agrees to confirm in writing that all materials containing Confidential Information have been returned to Discloser by Recipient.  Recipient shall cause its affiliates, agents, contractors, and employees to strictly comply with the foregoing.

9.             MISCELLANEOUS

 

9.1          Notices. All notices required to be sent hereunder shall be in writing and shall be deemed to have been given upon (i) the date sent by confirmed facsimile, (ii) on the date it was delivered by courier, or (iii) if by certified mail return receipt requested, on the date received, to the addresses set forth above and to the attention of the signatory of this Agreement or to such other address or individual as the parties may specify from time to time by written notice to the other party.

 

9.2          Relationship Between the Parties. The parties undertake their respective obligations under this Agreement as independent contractors.  This Agreement does not, and is not intended to, create any employment, agency, franchise, joint venture, legal partnership or other similar legal relationship between MapR and Company.  Neither party will have any right or authority to act on behalf of, or to bind, the other party and neither party will represent to any third party that it has such right or authority.

 

9.3          Force Majeure. Neither party shall be liable hereunder by reason of any failure or delay in the performance of its obligations hereunder on account of strikes, shortages, riots, insurrection, fires, flood, storm, explosions, acts of God, war, governmental action, labor conditions, earthquakes, material shortages, or any other cause which is beyond the reasonable control of such party.

 

9.4          Waiver. The failure of either party to require performance by the other party of any provision hereof shall not affect the full right to require such performance at any time thereafter; nor shall the waiver by either party of a breach of any provision hereof be taken or held to be a waiver of the provision itself.

 

9.5          Counterparts and Exchanges by Fax. This Agreement may be executed simultaneously in two (2) or more counterparts, each of which will be considered an original, but all of which together will constitute one and the same instrument. The exchange of a fully executed Agreement (in counterparts or otherwise) by fax shall be sufficient to bind the parties to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

 

9.6          This Agreement will be governed by the laws of the State of California without reference to conflict of law principles.  All disputes arising out of or related to it, will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state courts located in Santa Clara County, California, and the federal courts located in the Northern District of California, and the parties agree and submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction and venue of these courts.  Reseller may not assign this agreement, except to a successor of all or substantially all of its assets or stock (whether by sale, acquisition, merger, change of control, operation of law or otherwise), provided that such successor is not a competitor of MapR.  This Agreement, including its Exhibits, is the entire agreement between the parties relating to the subject matter hereof.  This Agreement shall control over any additional or different terms of any correspondence, order, confirmation, invoice or similar document, even if accepted in writing by both parties, and waivers and amendments of any provision of this Agreement shall be effective only if made by non-preprinted agreements indicating specifically what sections of this Agreement are affected, signed by both parties and clearly understood by both parties to be an amendment or waiver.  The failure of either party to enforce its rights under this Agreement at any time for any period shall not be construed as a waiver of such rights.  If any provision of this Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of this Agreement will continue in full force and effect and the invalid or unenforceable provision shall be reformed to the extent necessary to make it valid and enforceable.
