(i) Each party may disclose the other partys Confidential Information to:
(1) its agents and employees only to the extent reasonably necessary to accomplish the purposes of this Shared Space Arrangement and only with the express agreement by such employees and agents that the Confidential Information is to be maintained under confidentiality and nonuse obligations that are no less protective than those in this Shared Space Arrangement; and
(2) to the extent required by applicable law, court order, or in any litigation in connection with this Shared Space Arrangement.
(ii) If either party is required to disclose any of the other partys Confidential Information pursuant to Section 7(i) above, such party will, if permitted, provide the party whose Confidential Information is being disclosed with reasonable, prior notice of the requirement and assistance (at such partys expense) so that the party that is the owner of the Confidential Information may seek to oppose the requirement to disclose or obtain a protective order preserving the confidentiality of any of its Confidential Information so disclosed.
(iii) Confidential Information shall mean: (a) all business information heard, seen or in any manner learned by either party or its respective agents, employees or Visitors (defined below) due to the parties shared use of the Premises; (b) all information that has been or may be disclosed to either party, its employees, or agents orally or in writing, by the other party, its respective employees or agents in connection with, or incidental to, this Shared Space Arrangement or any other business dealing between Licensor and Licensee; and (c) the terms of this Shared Space Arrangement.

Upon a disclosing partys request, the receiving party shall destroy, erase, or return to the disclosing party, in a manner reasonably acceptable to the disclosing party, all Confidential Information in its possession or control.
Each party hereby acknowledges and agrees that money damages alone would be an inadequate remedy for the injuries and damage that would be suffered and incurred by either disclosing party as a result of a breach of any of the confidentiality provisions of this Shared Space Arrangement. Accordingly, a disclosing party shall be entitled to equitable relief, including injunctive relief and specific performance, to prevent or end a breach of the confidentiality provisions of this Shared Space Arrangement without the need to show irreparable harm or to submit proof of the economic value of any Confidential Information. Such equitable relief shall not be deemed to be the exclusive remedy for any breach of this Shared Space Arrangement, but shall be in addition to all other remedies at law or in equity.
