The Employee further understands and acknowledges that the Confidential Information and the Company’s ability to reserve the Confidential Information for the exclusive knowledge and use of the Company is of great competitive importance and commercial value to the Company, and that improper use or disclosure of the Confidential Information by the Employee will cause irreparable harm to the Company, for which remedies at law will not be adequate and may also cause the Company to incur financial costs, loss of business advantage, and liability under confidentiality agreements with third parties. For purposes of this Agreement, “Confidential Information” includes, but is not limited to, all information regarding the Company and its business not generally known to the public, in spoken, printed, electronic or any other form or medium, including such information relating directly or indirectly to: business processes, practices, policies, plans, operations, services, strategies, transactions, potential transactions, negotiations, and pending negotiations; trade secrets; sources of material; supplier or vendor information/lists; financial information; pricing information; design information; revenue; costs; product plans, designs or specifications; customer information or lists of the Company or its businesses or of any other person or entity that has entrusted information to the Company in confidence. The Employee understands that the above list is not exhaustive, and that Confidential Information also includes other information that is or was marked or otherwise identified as confidential or proprietary, or that would otherwise appear to a reasonable person to be confidential or proprietary in the context and circumstances in which the information is or was known or used. The Employee understands and agrees that any Confidential Information which was developed by him in the course of his employment by the Company shall be subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement as if the Company furnished the same Confidential Information to the Employee in the first instance.

Under the Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016, Employee will not be held criminally or civilly liable under any federal or state trade secret law for the disclosure of a trade secret that is made in confidence to a federal, state, or local government official or to an attorney solely for the purpose of reporting or investigating a suspected violation of law. Employee will not be held criminally or civilly liable under any federal or state trade secret law for the disclosure of a trade secret that is made in a complaint or other document filed in a lawsuit or other proceeding, if such filing is made under seal. Further, if Employee files a lawsuit for retaliation for reporting a suspected violation of law, then Employee may disclose the trade secret to Employee’s attorney and use the trade secret information in a court proceeding, if Employee files any document containing the trade secret under seal and does not disclose the trade secret, except pursuant to court order.
c. The Employee agrees and covenants: (i) to treat all Confidential Information as strictly confidential; (ii) not to directly or indirectly disclose, publish, communicate, or make available Confidential Information, or allow it to be disclosed, published, communicated, or made available, in whole or part, to any entity or person whatsoever not having a need to know and authority to know and use the Confidential Information in connection with the business of the Company and, in any event, not to anyone outside of the direct employ of the Company except as was required in the performance of the Employee’s employment duties to the Company, as allowed or required by this Agreement, and only with the prior consent of an authorized officer acting on behalf of the Company in each instance; and (iii) not to access or use any Confidential Information, and not to use, disclose, or copy any documents, records, files, media, or other resources containing any Confidential Information, or remove any such documents, records, files, media, or other resources from the premises or control of the Company, except as was required in the performance of the Employee’s authorized employment, as described, allowed, or required by this Agreement, or with the prior consent of an authorized officer acting on behalf of the Company. Nothing herein shall be construed to prevent disclosure of Confidential Information as may be required or permitted by applicable law or regulation, or pursuant to the valid order of a court of competent jurisdiction or an authorized Government Agency, provided that such disclosure does not exceed the extent of disclosure required by such law, regulation, or order. The Employee shall provide written notice of any such order to an authorized officer of the Company within three (3) days of receiving such order, but in any event sufficiently in advance of making any disclosure to permit the Company to contest the order or seek confidentiality protections, as determined in the Company’s sole discretion.
d. The Employee understands and acknowledges that his obligations under this Agreement with regard to any particular Confidential Information shall commence immediately and shall continue until such time as such Confidential Information has become public knowledge other than as a result of the Employee’s breach of this Agreement. The terms of this Agreement do not change or otherwise modify the duty of loyalty and any other duties of confidentiality Employee owed to the Company during his employment.

The parties agree, however, that the Employee’s ownership of any stock or securities (not to exceed two (2) percent of any class of stock or securities) of a corporation, which is a competitor of the Company, will not be a violation of the foregoing restrictions.

The Employee and the Company also agree that in any action or proceeding related to or arising from this Agreement brought by either party against the other party, the prevailing party shall be entitled to reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs incurred in bringing or defending said action or proceeding upon entry of a definitive judgment by a court of competent jurisdiction.
