10.1 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 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 an Order Form), the SaaS Services, documentation, business and marketing plans, technology and technical information, product designs, and certification and business processes.

10.2 Receiving Party shall not disclose any Confidential Information of Disclosing Party for any purpose outside the scope of this Agreement, except with Disclosing Party’s prior written consent.

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.
10.3 If Receiving Party is compelled by law to disclose Confidential Information of Disclosing Party, it shall provide Disclosing Party with prior notice of such compelled disclosure (to the extent legally permitted) and reasonable assistance, at Disclosing Party’s cost, if Disclosing Party wishes to contest the disclosure.

Without limiting the foregoing, Dataworkz will implement security measures that are consistent with industry standards.
10.6 Dataworkz will (a) process Customer Data only to the extent, and in such manner, as is necessary to provide the SaaS Services to Customer and its Users under this Agreement and in accordance with Customer’s instructions from time to time; (b) not otherwise process or use the Customer Data; and (c) keep Customer Data logically separate from other data and information that is held by Dataworkz. For purposes of clarity, the provisions above apply to all Customer Data, including but not limited to personal information. Dataworkz shall promptly comply with any request from Customer requiring Dataworkz to delete Customer Data. Dataworkz will provide Customer with the means to access, amend, delete or transfer Customer Data. If Dataworkz receives any third-party communication relating directly or indirectly to the processing of the personal information, Dataworkz must promptly notify Customer and must fully cooperate and assist Customer in addressing the communication.

- TERM AND TERMINATION.
12.1 This Agreement commences on the Effective Date and continues until all rights granted in accordance with this Agreement and the applicable Order Form(s) have expired or have been terminated. The Initial Term applicable to each Order Form commences upon Customer’s execution of such Order Form and shall expire at the end of the Initial Term or then-current Extension Term. Each Order Form shall be automatically extended for Extension Term(s) equal to the greater of the previous Term or twelve (12) months (at the current price of the SaaS Services) unless either party provides written notice of non-renewal to the other at least thirty (30) days before such expiration.
12.2 A party may terminate this Agreement or an Order Form for cause: (i) upon 30 days’ written notice to the other party of a material breach of this Agreement if such breach remains uncured at the expiration of such period; (ii) immediately upon written notice if the other party becomes the subject of a bankruptcy, insolvency, receivership, liquidation, assignment for the benefit of creditors or similar proceeding; and (iii) as otherwise provided herein.
12.3 Either party may terminate the Agreement immediately by written notice if no Order Form is in effect.
12.4 Upon termination of this Agreement or an Order Form, Customer shall: (i) cease all use of the Services. The parties’ rights and obligations under Sections 5, 6, 8.4, 9-11, 12.5, and 13 shall survive termination of this Agreement.
13.1 The parties are independent contractors, and no partnership, franchise, joint venture, agency, fiduciary or employment relationship between the parties is created hereby.
13.2 Notices shall be in writing, sent using a recognized private mail carrier or the United States Postal Service and effective on proof of delivery.
13.3 No amendment or waiver of any provision of this Agreement shall be effective unless in writing and signed by Customer and Dataworkz. Notwithstanding any language to the contrary therein, no terms stated in a purchase order or in any other order document (other than an Order Form, or other mutually executed order document expressly incorporated herein) shall be incorporated into this Agreement, and all such terms shall be void. This Agreement, which includes all documents referenced herein, Order Forms and attachments hereto, represents the entire agreement of the parties, and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous agreements, proposals or representations, written or oral, concerning its subject matter. This Agreement is not for the benefit of any third party.
13.4 No failure or delay in exercising any right hereunder shall constitute a waiver of such right. Except as otherwise provided, remedies provided herein are in addition to, and not exclusive of, any other remedies of a party at law or in equity. If any provision of this Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, such provision shall be modified by the court and interpreted so as best to accomplish the objectives of the original provision to the fullest extent permitted by law, and the remaining provisions shall remain in effect.
13.5 Neither party shall be liable to the other for any delay or failure to perform hereunder (excluding payment obligations) due to a natural disaster, actions or decrees of governmental bodies or communications line failure which (i) hinders, delays or prevents a party in performing any of its obligations, (ii) is beyond the control of, and without the fault or negligence of, such party, and (iii) by the exercise of reasonable diligence such party is unable to prevent or provide against.
13.6 Neither party may assign any of its rights or obligations hereunder, whether by operation of law or otherwise, without the prior written consent of the other (not to be unreasonably withheld). Notwithstanding the foregoing, Dataworkz may assign this Agreement in its entirety, without consent of the Customer, to its successor in interest in connection with a merger, reorganization, or sale of all or substantially all assets or equity. Any attempted assignment in breach of this Section shall be void. This Agreement shall bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their respective successors and permitted assigns. For clarity, Dataworkz may use subcontractors in the ordinary course of its business.
13.7 A party will be excused from a delay in performing, or a failure to perform, its obligations under the Agreement (other than payment obligations) to the extent such delay or failure is caused by the occurrence of any contingency beyond the reasonable control, and without any fault, of such Party. In such event, the performance times will be extended for a period of time equivalent to the time lost because of the excusable delay; provided, however, if the delay or failure continues for more than twenty (20) days, the Party not relying on the excusable delay may terminate the Agreement upon notice to the other party. In order to avail itself of the relief provided in this Agreement, a party must act with due diligence to remedy the cause of, or to mitigate or overcome, such delay or failure.
13.8 Dataworkz may access and use Customer Data to the extent necessary to provide, support and improve the Service under this Agreement and for its own business purposes on an anonymized and aggregated basis in a manner that does not disclose Customer as the source and the contents of the underlying Customer Data. Such uses may include, but are not limited to, enabling the sharing of network alerts and vulnerabilities and other network issues Dataworkz discovers through its provision of the SaaS Services.
