2.1 Customer Content. Customer acknowledges and agrees that certain features of the Services may enable Customer and third parties to upload or make available through the Services certain information and content (“Customer Content”).

Customer shall be solely responsible for ensuring it has all necessary rights to such Third Party Content in order to make such Third Party Content available to ChaosSearch for use in connection with ChaosSearch’s provision of Services to Customer. Customer shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless ChaosSearch for any claims, losses and expenses incurred by ChaosSearch and arising from any third party claim relating to ChaosSearch’s use of the Third Party Content to provide the Services to Customer. Customer shall provide reasonable cooperation and assistance to ChaosSearch to enable ChaosSearch to adequately integrate such Third Party Content into the Platform.

Except as expressly provided in this Agreement, each party shall not possess, access, use or disclose any of the other party’s Confidential Information except to perform its obligations or exercise its rights under the Agreement. Each party shall use reasonable care to protect the other party’s Confidential Information, but in no event less care than it employs in protecting its own Confidential Information.

Promptly after any termination of this Agreement (or at the disclosing party’s request at any other time), each party shall return or destroy all of the other party’s tangible Confidential Information. The restrictions herein will not prevent either party from complying with any law, regulation, court order or other legal requirement that purports to compel disclosure of any Confidential Information; provided that such party promptly notifies the disclosing party upon learning of any such legal requirement, and cooperates with the disclosing party in the exercise of its right to protect the confidentiality of the Confidential Information before any tribunal or governmental agency. “Confidential Information” means all financial, business or technical information that is disclosed by or for a party in relation to this Agreement (including all copies and derivatives thereof) and which are marked or otherwise identified as proprietary or confidential at the time of disclosure, or which by their nature would be understood by a reasonable person to be proprietary or confidential but not including any information that a receiving party can demonstrate is provided by a third party without breach of any obligation to the disclosing party, is generally available to the public without breach of this Agreement or is independently developed by it without reliance on such information. All benchmarking and performance information relating to the Services shall be ChaosSearch’s Confidential Information.
