TRIPWIRE’S EFFORTS TO RESTORE DELETED OR CORRUPTED CUSTOMER CONTENT PURSUANT TO THIS SECTION 4.2 WILL CONSTITUTE CUSTOMER’S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY AND TRIPWIRE’S SOLE LIABILITY FOR ANY DELETION OR CORRUPTION OF CUSTOMER CONTENT.
3.4 U.S. Federal Government End Use Provisions. Tripwire provides the Service, including access to related software and technology, for ultimate federal government end use solely in accordance with the following: Government technical data and software rights related to the Service include only those rights customarily provided to the public as defined in this Agreement. This customary commercial license is provided in accordance with FAR 12.211 (Technical Data) and FAR 12.212 (Software) and, for Department of Defense transactions, DFAR 252.227-7015 (Technical Data – Commercial Items) and DFAR 227.7202-3 (Rights in Commercial Computer Software or Computer Software Documentation). If a government agency has a need for rights not conveyed under these terms, it must negotiate with Tripwire to determine if there are acceptable terms for transferring such rights, and a mutually acceptable written addendum specifically conveying such rights must be included in any applicable contract or agreement.
4. PROPRIETARY RIGHTS; CONFIDENTIALITY
4.1 Ownership. All intellectual property rights that are owned or controlled by a party at the commencement of the Service shall remain under the ownership or control of such party. As between Tripwire and Customer, Customer exclusively owns all rights, title and interest in and to all Customer Content. Subject to the limited rights expressly granted hereunder, Tripwire reserves all rights, title and interest in and to the Service, including all Collected Data and all related intellectual property rights. Tripwire shall not disclose the Collected Data in any manner in which the Collected Data could be attributed to Customer or Customer’s use of the Service. No rights are granted to Customer hereunder other than as expressly set forth herein. Customer may choose, but is not required, to provide suggestions, data or other information to Tripwire regarding possible improvements in the operation, functionality or use of the Service. Any resulting inventions, improvements, modifications or developments, made by Tripwire at its sole discretion, are Tripwire’s exclusive property.
4.2 “Confidential Information" means: (a) Customer Content, Customer’s User names and access credentials; (b) each party’s security or business practices; (c) information regarding each party’s suppliers, employees or customers; (d) non-public information provided by Tripwire regarding the Service, including product and service pricing, trade secrets, road maps and development plans relating thereto; (e) the specific business terms set forth in any quotation, Order or this Agreement; and (f) any other information of a party that is identified as confidential or proprietary at the time of disclosure, or that a reasonable person would recognize to be confidential given the nature of the information and the circumstances of the disclosure. Confidential Information does not include information that: (i) is or becomes generally known or available to the public through no act or omission of the recipient (“Recipient”); (ii) is rightfully known to or received by Recipient prior to receiving such information from the other party (“Disclosing Party”) without restriction as to use or disclosure; or (iii) is independently developed by Recipient without use of Confidential Information and without a breach of this Agreement. The existence of this Agreement and the nature of the business relationship between the parties are not Confidential Information.
4.3 Protection of Confidential Information. Except as otherwise permitted in writing by the Disclosing Party: (a) the Recipient will use Confidential Information received from the other party solely for the purpose of performing activities contemplated under this Agreement; (b) the Recipient will use the same degree of care that it uses to protect the confidentiality of its own confidential information of like kind (but in no event less than reasonable care) not to disclose or use any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party for any purpose outside the scope of this Agreement; and (c) the Recipient will limit access to Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to those of its employees, contractors and agents who need such access for purposes consistent with this Agreement and who are under confidentiality obligations to the Recipient containing protections no less stringent than those herein. Customer agrees to keep all access credentials confidential and not to transfer or disclose them to other individuals or third parties. The parties acknowledge that a violation of the Recipient’s obligations with respect to Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party may cause irreparable harm to the Disclosing Party for which a remedy at law would be inadequate. In addition to any and all remedies available at law, the Disclosing Party will be entitled to seek an injunction or other equitable remedies in all legal proceedings in the event of any threatened or actual breach of this Section 4.
4.4 Protection of Customer Content. Images submitted by Customer are destroyed immediately on completion of the scan. The results of the scans are retained during the retention period described in the Data Processing Terms. Tripwire will maintain reasonable administrative, physical, and technical safeguards for the purpose of protecting the security, confidentiality and integrity of Customer Content, as described in Data Processing Terms in effect at the time that the Service is provided. Tripwire does not require access to, and Customer shall not intentionally provide, sensitive data such as protected health information, financial or credit information related to Customer’s employees or customers, or special categories of personal data as defined by applicable data privacy laws (collectively “Protected Data”). If Customer inadvertently discloses any Protected Data in the course of receiving the Service, Tripwire will treat such information as Confidential Information under the terms of this Agreement and, at Customer’s request, promptly destroy Customer Data that includes such information.
4.5 Compelled Disclosure. The Recipient may disclose Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party if it is compelled by law to do so; provided that the Recipient gives the Disclosing Party prior notice of such compelled disclosure (to the extent legally permitted) and reasonable assistance, at the Disclosing Party's cost, if the Disclosing Party wishes to contest the disclosure. 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.
4.6 Administrative Data. Tripwire may store the Administrative Data in databases accessible globally by its personnel responsible for providing or supporting the Service, and to use the Administrative Data for purposes reasonably necessary to the administration of this Agreement, subject to the Data Processing Terms.

6.1 Tripwire will defend or settle any action brought against Customer during the Term and indemnify Customer against all costs, damages and reasonable attorneys’ fees that are finally awarded against Customer or are included in a settlement to which Tripwire is a party, to the extent those amounts are based upon a third party claim that the Service directly infringes any copyright or misappropriates any trade secret or infringes any patent enforceable in the United States. As conditions to Tripwire’s obligations under this Section 6.1, Customer must: (a) notify Tripwire promptly in writing of the action; (b) provide Tripwire all reasonable information and assistance to settle or defend the action at Tripwire’s request and expense; and (c) grant Tripwire sole authority and control of the defense or settlement of the action.

6.4 At Tripwire’s request, Customer shall defend or settle any action brought against Tripwire and indemnify against costs, damages and reasonable attorneys’ fees that are finally awarded against Tripwire or are included in a settlement to which Customer is a party, to the extent those amounts are based on a claim arising from Customer’s unlawful or unauthorized use of the Service, or a third party claim in relation to Customer Content provided by Customer to Tripwire. Customer will not be responsible for any compromise made or expense incurred without its prior written consent.
