If the Recipient is compelled by law to disclose the Disclosing Party's Confidential Information as part of a civil proceeding to which the Disclosing Party is a party, and the Disclosing Party is not contesting the disclosure, the Disclosing Party will reimburse the Recipient for its reasonable cost of compiling and providing secure access to such Confidential Information.
5.7 No Protected Data. Other than Administrative Data, Tripwire does not require access to, Customer shall not provide, Protected Data.
