Confidential Information also includes (x) the facts that the parties are in discussions regarding the Purpose (or, without limitation, any termination of such discussions) and that Confidential Information has been disclosed; and (y) any terms, conditions, or arrangements discussed.
If Recipient or any of its Representatives is required by applicable law or a valid legal order to disclose any Confidential Information, Recipient shall notify Disclosing Party of such requirements so that Disclosing Party may seek, at Disclosing Party's expense, a protective order or other remedy, and Recipient shall reasonably assist Disclosing Party therewith without out of pocket expense to the Recipient. If Recipient remains legally compelled to make such disclosure, it shall only disclose that portion of the Confidential Information that it is required to disclose as determined by its legal counsel.

Disclosing Party makes no representation or warranty, expressed or implied, as to the accuracy or completeness of the Confidential Information, and will have no liability to Recipient or any other person relating to Recipient's use of any of the Confidential Information or any errors therein or omissions therefrom.
Disclosing Party retains its entire right, title, and interest in and to all Confidential Information, and no disclosure of Confidential Information hereunder will be construed as a license, assignment, or other transfer of any such right, title, and interest to Recipient or any other person.
The rights and obligations of the parties under this Agreement expire two (2) years after the Effective Date; provided that with respect to Confidential Information that constitutes a trade secret under applicable law, such rights and obligations will survive such expiration until, if ever, such Confidential Information loses its trade secret protection other than due to an act or omission of Recipient or its Representatives.
Recipient acknowledges and agrees that any breach of this Agreement may cause irreparable harm and injury to Disclosing Party for which money damages might be an inadequate remedy and that, in addition to remedies at law, Disclosing Party is entitled to seek equitable relief as a remedy for any such breach. Recipient waives any claim or defense that Disclosing Party has an adequate remedy at law in any such proceeding. Nothing herein shall limit the equitable or available remedies at law for Disclosing Party.
